Happy Birthday

Here is a card I made awhile back but have not gotten around to posting. Sorry. I have been pretty busy trying to keep up with the new GREAT DANE PUPPY. He is really, really sweet but not HOUSE BROKEN YET! Its getting better. I'll post a photo of him soon.

For my card today I have used papers from Fancy Pants Rusted Sun Collection. The flowers are by Prima and the pearls are from my stash. I have used this image from Mo's Digital Pencil. She has some really cute designs. I have colored her with my Copics but have not kept a list of which ones they were.

Sorry I have been so long since my last post.

Quack, Quack Its Easter

First off today I have to share with everyone that I will be taking the next Copic Certification Class on March 28th in Portland, OR. I am so excited to learn all the correct techniques. They have opened up a bunch of new class locations so if your interested you should check it out.

Anyway, Here is a card I made with a Sassy Cheryl's image. She has some really cute ones and you should check them out HERE. She has also started a new challenge. Although, this card was not created for the challenge.
I started with my Bazzill cardstock and then added some layers of papers from the Fancy Pants Designs Shabby Floral Collection. I cut my image out with my nestie and layered it with yet another nestie, the scalloped circle. I then added little rhinestones to each scallop. I colored my image with Copics which I do not have all the numbers as I made this a few days ago and before I documented them I had them all put away. I added some stickles, a flower and some larger clear colored stones in the corners.

Thank you for stopping by.

Taking A Break

I'm so sorry that I have not posted in some time but it has been kinda busy around here. I have been preparing myself for the the new GREAT DANE, Yikes. Yes, after 2 years of begging for one we finally gave in and let the 16 year old son get his dream dog. When we went to check these puppies out both the mom and the dad where in the house, and they are as big as a horse. Anyway, I will keep you posted as he does not actually get him until Saturday when he turns 8 weeks.

Here is a card I made using a Mo's Digital Pencil Image. If you have not checked these out you really should. They are all super cute. I can't wait to use more of them. I will admit that I have not used too many digital images yet, but will be using more of them in the future. This image is called "Taking A Break" and I colored him when I was thinking about the new Dane. He is mostly black with white socks and white on his head.

I used papers from the new collection by Fancy Pants Designs called Rusted Sun. The image is layered with the nesties ovals. I distressed all edges of the papers and inked them with Rangers Distress Ink. I then stitched the edges with my sewing machine. I added a couple of butterflies that were punched with the MS punch and embellished with some glitter. I added the flowers by Prima Marketing to the bottom corner.

I Don't Know

Here is another card with a Sugar Nellie stamp. I think she is called "I Don't Know", but not sure. The only paper used was Bazzill cardstock. I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the purple. Then I cut the ovals with my Nesties. Colored her with my Copic Markers and layered it together, added a white brad in each corner, tied some yarn around it for my finished card. Pretty simple. She kinda reminds me of my daughter Tiffany. A little bit of attitude once in awhile. But very sweet.

Thanks for stopping by again.
