Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

I thought this sentiment would go well with this 
Chibi Kawaii Bestie.  She is too cute!  
She is her own special kind of beautiful.  
I have a grand daughter that will love this card.
I made lots of layers using some designer paper.  I fussy cut her 
and then popped her up.  I added a bow made with some 
contrasting paper and included some banners.

You can find this image here Chibi Kawaii Bestie!!

Enchanted Magical Unicorn! Oh My!

If you are a reader of my blog then you know that I LOVE to
color when I saw this digi I had to color her up.
I went to a Crafting Retreat last month and had fun
coloring up a few images and making a few shaker cards.
Yes this is a shaker card!  So much fun!  Can you see the
little purple hearts in there?  I think the wings look
delicate and I added some definition to her back.  You
can find this image Here!
I added some beautiful flowers to finish off the card.
You can color her up with any colors you would
like and it would look totally different.
There are new My Bestie images every month to
choose from so keep checking back.
Thanks for stopping by!   Have a blessed day!

It's still Easter month and it is one of my favorite holidays so...
Proverbs 13:12 says Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.  We should never lose hope!
Keep reaching for that dream and keep hoping! 
I so enjoy coloring and this one was fun to color up.
I was at a Crafting retreat this last weekend and this is one
of the few cards that I finished up.  If you would like to 
purchase this image or many others, you can find her HERE!
Thank you for stopping by!

Handle Life With Prayer

Hope you had a blessed and happy Resurrection Day!
 Easter is one of my favorite days. 
I thought this card would be perfect for this months project.
I think male cards are the hardest for me.  I mean it's hard
to keep from adding flowers but these gorgeous flowers are
from Sherri Baldy's booth at the Scrapbook Expo.  I loved
the color and had to get them.  The praying girl stamp
is always a big hit so I thought that I would color up the
"Say a little prayer" boy stamp which you can find here!
Thank you for stopping by!  Blessings!

Little Ducky

With Easter approaching I thought that I would make a gift
card holder for my second March Shabby Chic Besties project. 
I stamped this adorable Sherri Baldy image called Little Ducky.
I stamped it onto Recollections #110 white paper and colored her up with Copic markers.  You can find Sophia HERE!
Here are the Copic colors that I used:
Skin:  E50, E51, E53, E35, RV10
Hair:  Y23, E21, E35, E57, E47
Bunny Ears:  E71, E77, E79, R81, E04, BV00
Ducky:  Y13, Y21

 I used Kaiser Craft Miss Betty, Tilda and an
oldie, Girls Paperie paper.  I cut the bow from a die from
My Creative Time, the chicken wire die from Tim Holtz,  
and layed some leaves I die cut.  I also layered a Magnolia
DooHickey die cut on the edges.  The letters that spell out
"Easter" are from Girls Paperie.  Thanks for stopping by!

So Sweet Little Sophia

Isn't little Sophia sweet?  This image is named after Sherri Baldy's granddaughter, Sophia.  I just had to color her up for my March Shabby Chic Besties project.  You know that I love to color using my Copic markers and working with yellows is always fun too!

You can find Sophia in the shop here!
I stamped her onto Recollections #110 white paper
with black Momento Ink.
I used the following Copic Markers:
Skin:  E50, E51, E53, E35 and RV10
Hair:  Y21, YR23, E15, E18
Dress/Headband: Y0000, Y00, YR20, Y26
Ruffles:  B0000, B00
Flowers:  R81, E04, G21

I used Heaven Sent paper by Prima Marketing Inc.
I love the colors.  I layed a few of my favorite papers
and also used a chicken wire fence die cut.  The gold foil
"So sweet" sticker is from the Paper Studio.  I added some
white seam binding, buttons, pink bead trim, a Prima flower
and a few other misc. trims.  Thank you for visiting and I
hope that you will take a look at Sherri's store!  Have a super
blessed and creative day!

You're In My Heart Forever

Hello friends!  It's been a whole year since I posted but I am so glad to back with new projects for Sherri Baldy - My Besties Shabby Chic Design Team.  Sherri has created beautiful Steam Punk images and here is one that I used.  I love her!  You can find her in the shop by clicking here!   I used E50, E51, E53, E35 and RV10 for the skin.  For the hair I used Y23, E21, E35, E57 and E47.  The clothes and head band were colored with RV00, RV11, RV34, C00, C1 and C3.
It was fun to color this adorable girl with my Copic Markers.  I also used some beautiful flowers in some gorgeous colors to accent the card which I added diamond dust to in different areas.  I popped the image up on foam squares and also popped up the polka dot paper and Tilda background paper.  I added a sentiment and finished it off with the matching button.  Hope you will stay tuned for more Shabby Chic creations!  Thanks for stopping by!

It's A Blue Christmas Snowman

I made this Snowman for my daughter.  She will find out 
when she sees this post.  I hope she likes it.  She requested
this color.  This is my final project for Deb as she is 
closing her Gone Artsy Zibbet store.  She still has some
styrofoam balls and other shapes as well.
I used my favorite laces and jewels.  I popped
the snowman up on a left over spool and then 
covered it in the faux pearl ruffled lace.  I added
the polka dot paper and then used her black lace
to accent the spool.  I added the word bead on
top of a snow flake.
I used the Prima pearls as snow along the feet 
and on the hat.  I also used a delicate blue ribbon
from her shop on the hat.  
Deb was so generous to all on her Design Team
and I will miss working with her and all the very 
sweet and talented designers.  Thank you Deb for
the opportunity to play with your products.
Check out her store before it closed on the 21st
of this month.  I hope that you have a very
blessed Christmas!  See you next year!
