Grocery List..


I have long been a FAN of Chrissy Armstrong's artistic skills. Check out her blog you'll find the link in my blog roll. Her images are fun and adorable. If you like High Hopes Stamps, she's a former illustrator for them. Awesome style of stamps this image is a digital one I bought of hers from Squigglefly. My aunt loves elephants so I got this image just for her... I made her this notepad and one other that you'll see later as a thank you for being as awesome as she is. I hope this inspires you to do something creative today.

Ice Cream in Blue..

HolidaysCraftiness 223 MFT Stamps are adorable and great for practicing your coloring skills on don't cha think? I Love the large spaces that enable you to either paper piece the image or give the opportunity to shade and give depth. Mine still requires lots of work (the shading thing) but I hope that as I add more Copics to my collection I will be able to shade better and add more depth with the gray tones. I hope she inspires you today..

Give Vintage Picnic Some Love..

Blog Photos 111











The card is straight IRL!!! LOL I am not sure why it came out like that in the photo.. It's more Vintage Picnic love for you. I hope it brings some creativity your way. I colored in the flowers with my Prismacolor Pencils and blended with some Gamsol. I just LOVE that technique. It gives the most gorgeous shading to your images and the color is soft and beautiful. The DP came from my local Hobby Lobby a while ago! but its a fave of mine.

Good morning Ladies.. Here's an attempt at creating a background with my Guidelines II set from Papertrey Ink.. I combined it with my MFT rainy girl for a cute little card.. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. Don't forget to check out her boots and the dogs coat, they're colored with my Spicas! Such bling like you've never known with a pen.. AWESOME!

Orange Ya Lovin' This Basket???

HolidaysCraftiness 225 First let me say thanks so very much to all of you who took the time to send you kind thoughts and gentle wishes of sorrow at the passing of my Papa. They were truly a blessing at a terrible time. You will never know the depth of my gratitude to those who so generously offered their support.

This card is one of my favorites. I am always going to love this set I think its one of those sets that you will continue to return to time and time again. The basket is paper pieced and the flowers and leaves are colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol. I am steadily working trying to get my mojo back.  I hope this card inspires you to do something creative today.

Much Aloha,
