Happy Birthday Month!

It's been awhile since I posted or even had a chance to do 
any card making.  I've been very busy with ministry and
celebrating my birthday all month!  Oh what fun!
I hosted a 12 hour Summer Crop so I
finally had time to COLOR!  I sure missed it!
I have been wanting to color this Sherri Baldy My Besties
stamp.  I love the big hat and hair. This is a clear stamp
#MYB-0935.  I used my Copic Markers to color her.
The sentiment is a Sizzix die.  The flowers are from
I Am Roses.
Thank you for looking in!  I will be doing some
Bible Art Journaling in a few days and so I will be
posting my journey as I start this adventure.
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Clever Chole Card

I wanted to share my latest card.  I colored her up 
a few weeks ago but wasn't able to put her on a card
until today.  She is a My-Besties stamp.
Her name is Clever Chole #MYB-0025.  You can
find her here.  I used "Simple Stories diy boutique" 
paper line and the new Tim Holtz die cuts that
included word "enjoy"!
Thanks for looking in!  I hope you have a 
blessed week!

It's a good day to have a good day!

I belong to a group on Face Book that offered this digi free
to it's members.  It is a Polka Doodle image called Eden.
I was intimidated at first because of all the background 
scenery and flowers but ended up enjoying the process.
It really was fun to color up all the flowers and
landscape.  My lighting wasn't that great so I am
not completely happy with her but I still like her.
It looks like I blended the hair a little too much.
I guess it gives another reason to try her again.
I made her into a card and added a butterfly so I
could enter her into a contest over at the Polka Doodle
blog.  Again it wasn't easy because the image is
busy so you have to keep it clean and simple.  That
does not describe me.  I tend to keep adding stuff.
I put glossy accents and blue glass glitter on the
butterfly to brighten it up a bit.  I also crocheted a very
small beige butterfly on the bottom left of the card.

Miss Mopsy Stamp and Sweet Afternoon Paper

I think this Miss Mopsy stamp is adorable and I had to try to 
color up her hair.  Let me know what you think.
I used Teresa Collins paper line called Sweet Afternoon.
I also used the buttons that came in the coordinating
diecut sheets.  I added some flowers and distressed the
edges of the papers.
The wood embellishments are from Queen and Co,
I won them at a Scrapping Crop last year.  I put
some pink paper behind the cutout section of the 
wood to add some more pink!  I hope you like it!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!

I hope that you had a blessed day celebrating Mother's Day!
I am blessed to be the Mother of 7 children.  I had a 
relaxing day and my daughter and husband went out
of their way to make it a special day for me.
I was missing my Mother who left this world 5 years ago.
I miss her so much and so I went into my craft room and
started to color this pretty stamp.  I loved her the moment
I saw this stamp working at CHA in Sherri Baldy's booth
for the My Besties line.  I love the hair.  I think I choose
stamps with lots of hair to color.  If your interested in the 
colors that I used to color her up just leave me a comment.
I also used the gold glass glitter that I got from Sherri too.
I decided to add it to the wand and in the crown jewels.
The paper I used is from the Tilda line and it is called
Apple Bloom!  I got the paper from Traci the shop
owner of Art Attack Supplies.  She has great prices
for the Tilda paper lines which I love!  
I just layered up some of the different papers that
I die cut and the bright pink die cut is from 
My Minds Eye.  I added the wooden "wish"
to wish you all a Happy Mother's Day!

Milk Box with My Bestie Dancer

I love this Sherri Baldy My Bestie img601 because
of her eyes and her hair which was so fun to color.  
So much fun!  She is beautiful.  If you would like 
to purchase her, you can find her here.
I left the top open so the receiver of this gift can open it up 
to get the handmade goodies out.  I just added the chubby
cloths pin to hold it closed.
The paper is a Tilda paper line.  You can't forget to 
add some flowers and layers to the stamped image.
I cut out the opening so you could see all the beautiful
resin pieces and crocheted flowers but sealed it with
a piece of thin plastic to act as a window.  The ballerina 
is a die cut from the Tilda paper line.

Another New Release Card! Messy Jessie!

I love this Sherri Baldy My Besties "Messy Jessie" image because
I love to paint.  Well, ok, maybe not love to do it but I enjoy
the finished product.  I love turning something that may look
like trash into a lovely treasure.  I also used Sherri's new 
paper line called "Love Letters".  I know I ended up covering 
most of it up but I love the color combo.

Once I colored in her eyes, I decided to color her scarf
in the same color.  Are you surprised that I used Pink??
I figured not!  Lol!  Pink makes me happy!  What else
can I say? :) I made the base of the card smaller than I
usually do, so I could extend out beyond the borders.
I wanted to be able to use the card for either a birthday
or a celebration of any type so I didn't use an additional
sentiment inside.  I just drew a small paint drip
on the corner and colored it in to match the front. 
Added some of my favorite flowers and wood 
embellishments to finish it off.  If you would like
to have this digital image you can find her here
Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate it!

Today is My Besties New Release Day

Sherri Baldy My Besties owner and designer has released
new stamps to give us something to celebrate on Tax day.
I decided to work on a boy card in celebration of
my grandson who will be making his arrival in June!
I colored him up with my copic markers and I tried
to match him up to some paper that I had from a
line called Paper Trunk.  It's no longer in business
but I've had it in my paper stash and I love it.  Such
great quality paper.  Anyway, I added the flowers
that Sherri has in her shop also.  I love that shade
of green!  I used the butterflies from the
Martha Stewart punch and colored them up a bit.
I cut the word happy using Heidi Swapp's new die.
I know I will get plenty of use out of it.
I added glossy accents to the magnifying glass.
I used a gel pen to give the magnifier a metal look.
I love this little guy.  He is adorable and I think I can
color him up again and again.
