Missing You!

I love this Sugar Nellie Image called Carefree, she is so carefree and so not worried about life. Just wish I could hang out like this and not think of doing chores, especially the laundry.

I used my pencils to color her in. I like to use pencils for more detailed images. I did the ribbon technique here too. It may become my signature. The patterned paper is from paper studio, i have a bunch of miscellaneous paper, it just so happened to match!

This is my gorgeous daughter holding this card!

Have a great day.

Victoria Case Challenge #2 SNR

This card was made for the challenge over at SNR. I used the Spring image by Victoria Case. I combined my copics and pencils to color her in. We had to use the color combination of Rust Orange, Olive Green, Brown and Ivory.

Victoria Case Challenge Card

Victoria Case is having a challenge on her blog. I had so much fun making this card. Victoria case has beautiful digital images, They are so much fun to color in. In this challenge she is giving away a free image. Willy is so cute!!!

This is the sketch we had to follow..

Here is my Card:

I used Bazill Papers for this card. The polka dot paper is from a basics pack from paper studio. Punched out matching papers for the flowers. And willy is accompanied by my layered stapled ribbon. My prisma pencils were used, I didnt even need gamsol to blend. I just used various shades of the same color to blend it in perfectly.

I also printed out one for my daughter, she loves to color just like Mommy. Look how cute! I think she did pretty well for a 4 year old 🙂

Have a great Day!!!

Hang Tough!

I made this one for my son, he is 6 and in Kindergarten. He took this picture for his school photos (I have to mail my MIL one) He looks so sad or grown up, I cant decide.

I used SCAL with a free font from Fontspace called ABCcar. I used my Archaic Paper and all its accessories for the other fun stuff. This was an easy page to make thanks to Basic Grey, I have found my new favorite paper.

Thanks for looking 🙂


Fabric Covered Bullentin Boards


This week my goal is to get organized. So sick of the kids papers all over the house. So I went to Hobby Lobby with coupons in hand and bought some bulletin boards and fabric. All you have to do is staple the back of the board and make it neat. Of course you need to use a heavy duty stapler.

This one is mine. For my Craft room

This is my daughters she already put alot of her pictures on.

And this one is my sons. Need to get the wrinkles yes I know 😦

I have one more to make but cant show you as hubby may see it 🙂

Go try this its so easy and so cheap!! If you buy these predone it could cost you a fortune. With my coupon the board was just 5.00 and the fabric was just 4.00. Staple gun and staples we already owned. (These are a GREAT investment) I am sure you can use Glue if you are patient enough to wait for it to dry.


i recently discovered CISTAMPS.COM. They have a grab bag for 20 bucks, I got one and there are about 25 stamps in it, all umounted all really cute. There is one I think I didnt like. Here is the link..

If you know of other good grab bag deals please let me know!

Cool Ribbon Technique

I am not sure what this ribbon technique is called but its one of my favorites to do. I used a simple glittery rubon and dollar bin ribbon from Michaels to make this easy peasy card.
