Sharing

Just thought I'd share a card that I made for my cousin's birthday.


The image layer is from SU and is colored with Copics. The blue around the die cut was done with the air brush system. The ribbon was recycled .... it was, originally, on a fat quarter bundle. :) I just ironed it out and used it.

Hope she liked it and had a great day. :) 



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

Happy Baby Shower!

Babies are such sweet gifts from God, and it's such fun to celebrate those beautiful gifts with new parents. Friends of ours at church are having their first baby - a girl - in January. Their shower was today, so I can finally share the card and gift with you.

 First, I'm going to share the gift my daughter did for them.....

She sewed a sweet little taggie for little Chloe to carry around. This was definitely not the first one she sewed, but it was the first one she pinned herself. That's very difficult, and she did a great job. We repinned it to get it all straight, but I was so proud of her for trying and for doing a good job.


This is the finished taggie that Jaydin made. She did such a good job. It's so cute!!!!



I found this little fox online, and she totally matches the fox on the shower invitations. So ... I converted it to a .pes file and made baby Chloe a bib. I used pastel/muted colors for this since the pink was so light.



The taggie that I created is a full yard and has her name and the little fox on it. I hope that little Miss Chloe gets lots of use from it and loves it as much as Jaydin has always loved hers.




Using the same fox, I created the card. I don't have a picture, but I made a bigger fox to put on the gift bag. I added the bow and flower on the bag, too.


Tomorrow, I'll show a card that I made for my cousin's birthday.

Hope all of you have a blessed Sunday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!!

Spare Time

Wow... got a little extra time today. The princess had to go up to the Haven to work on a project for school today, so I went up to keep her company (and help when needed). I chose to spend my spare time up there coloring. :) 


Isn't he cute? I enjoyed coloring him. When I was done, I airbrushed the background lightly and made a CAS card. Certainly not a really involved card, but it does make me smile.


Copics were used to color the image and the Copic airbrush system (with compressor) was used to do the background.

Hope you're creating out there wherever you are!
Have a wonderful Monday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.

Some Sassy Coloring

I have been in the Haven twice this week! I haven't finished a card, but I did color an amazingly precious image and have worked on a new prayer journal for myself. I made a new prayer journal for my son's girlfriend, as well. 

This little image is just too fun to color and sooooo cute!! 


I'd love to know what you think. I really enjoyed putting color on this image. She's just so sassy! I haven't decided what kind of card I'm going to make with it, yet. I hope to do that next week.... or maybe tomorrow. We'll see! :) 

Hope you're creating!!

Have a wonderful Friday evening and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!

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.
