Birthday Pony

Goodness .... it has been a LONG time, hasn't it? I've simply not had any time to craft at all. This weekend, though, we needed a card for  a birthday party my daughter was attending. Here's what I came up with.



I used SU's Pretty Pony set because the child is a horse lover. The butterfly and flowers were cut from dies made by Your Next Stamp. The pony was colored using Copics.... naturally. 


She seemed to like it. :) I hope that she did.

Felt good to create for a little while. Hope I can do it again soon.

Have a beautiful Monday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.

Chipboard Journal .... Last Page

 I finished my chipboard journal today. I love how the last page turned out. It's all about my love of sewing. Now, I have a wonderful little journal showing 8 beautiful blessings from the Lord.


Totally love the little sewing die. The sewing stamp set was perfect for this, as well.



I know you're shocked, but I colored using Copics. :) 


Have a marvelous Monday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!

365 Project - Day 30

I won this super cute set from the Your Next Stamp blog hop a few weeks ago.  I couldn't wait to play with it.  As I worked with it, I was reminded of the many friends I've met through the barn.  So, this one is for them.  I'm very thankful for them and the love of horses that we all share.


Yep ... this pretty much says it all ... "Barn to be wild."  Ha!!




We just need a horse with his head over that fence, huh?? :) 


I hope all of you are having a wonderful Thursday, and that you have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.

Rock Stars

Today, I made a rock star card for a very special young man.  This will be going out to him this week to encourage him to continue working toward regaining strength and motor skills.



This is a set from Clear Dollar Stamps and it's colored with Copics.  On top of the Copics, I used the Glitter Spica on the blue part of the drums.  The brown layer is embossed with a music folder, and baker's twine was added to the bottom for embellishment.  I wanted to keep it very masculine.

Have a wonderful Saturday night and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!! :)

Day 17 Project

My day 17 project... another page of the chipboard journal.

Everyone needs a set of Quackers in their lives.  No, I didn't say they need Quacks.  I said that they need Quack-ers. :) Mine is on Splitcoaststampers, and I'm happy to say that they have been friends of mine since 2004..... wow ... 10 years.  It's amazing how people can become friends through the internet.  We've been through a lot of good and bad.  I'm glad that we've all been through it together.  I'm very thankful for each of them.

So, today, my chipboard journal page was inspired by the Quackers. 


I think there are only 2 more pages in this journal for me to complete.  Hmmm ... I wonder what my 'go-to' project is going to be once those are done! :) Sketches?  Photography? We'll see.

Live the life, and live it well.
