Merry Merry Quite Contrary.....

This is a super awesome image by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! I bought this image at her Krafty Day in September-it was a blaasttt!! She is a super sweet girl with a really fun and energetic DT!!!
Anyway this is my fav image from her Christmas collection and her name is...you guessed it....Merry!!

I made this little beauty for lovely Kristas challenge- Funky Fibers-notice the hemp fibers!!I had my image coloured to match my paper and left it for a week, then I saw Kristas challenge so I thought that would be a great time to pull out my hemp string!! So it kinda has this vintage country feel now and I really like the way she turned out!!Again, another copic creation sponsored by Melanies copics-hehe-xoxo mel!!!

Well, I feel that I just may be converted over to the Copic side from my Tombows-as much as I enjoy the water-colours, when they cooperate, I haven't been nearly as frustrated with the copics!! Weird eh?

Well ladies I'm off for now,but there's lots more where this came from!!Haha :)

Birthday Balloons

Hello to all my faithful followers! hehehe
Well I know you are shocked that I have surfaced to post and I am glad that all 5 followers have hung in there with me! I'm such a dork!
Anyway this image is a favorite of mine and it's by Victoria Case for The Town Scrapper!!

The DP is from the Pink Paislee line by 360 Degrees. I used some embellishments from my Basic Grey collection and by Prima!
This is probably my third card done with Copic markers, other then make-and-takes that I did at Krafty Day this fall. I was really excited to try my hand at them!!!
I loved colouring this image and I was really happy with the end result, and I am usually a very frustrated card-maker!!hehe

Well I hope this is the beginning of my redemption for my HUGE break in posting!! :)

Thanks for popping in!!

A Little Inspiration Maybe.....

Hey all, I hope you had a great weekend out in the beautiful sun shine!!! This weekend was pretty uneventful for myself, but busy still, as always!
It's been a while since I've been on to update so here is one of the cards that I made for The Town Scrapper! This image is by The Geeeting Farm and is called Princess Ava. She is so cute and she works perfectly for cards for my nieces, especially since they are into the whole Princess thing right now! I hope you enjoy the card and can manage to find some inspiration somewhere, whether it's making a card for your "perfect match"(hubby, best friend,identical twin haha) or you find a paper/colour theme to inspire you! You never know where your next BIG idea will spring from!!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!!

I used my Tombows to colour up the image and some really great DP by My Minds Eye which is part of the Abbey Road collection. The brads are "spare parts" by The Paper Studio, I used my Labels Ten spellbinders(which Phebe also carries) and a sentiment from an assorted pack by The Gretting Farm. The flowers are from Prima and the ribbon is something I had laying around in my ribbon bin!Sorry the second image is a little fuzzy, I took the picture by myself....can you tell!! hehehe
Pretty well everything on this card can be purchased at The Town Scrapper which is awesome because it's so close! Check out the store online HERE!! Plus, there is always a great deal, like right now BOGO 1/2 OFF- Buy 1 get the second of equal or lesser value 1/2 price!Check it out!!!!

Toodles for now!!

Autism Awareness

This next card was made to help raise money/awareness for Autism. Everyone on the design team for The Town Scrapper made a card using this stamp and the proceeds from the sales of these cards will go to the Autism Society, plus April is Autism Awareness Month! Hurry in to The Town Scrapper in the month of April and if you are wearing Blue you will receive a discount off your purchase!!!! Isn't that awesome! Just let Phebe know your wearing BLUE for Autism and your all set!! This is only until the end of April so don't miss out!!!!
Now on to my card with this extra special stamp!! This stamp is from the first Victoria Case release that was made for Phebe and The Town Scrapper. The boys name is Evan and he is cute!!!

I used my tombows to colour him up and I got all the DP from Phebe at The Town Scrapper. I wanted him to be fun and the card to be very colourful and cheery!! I am very pleased with how he coloured up and I had fun going wild with my DP! Speaking of, Phebe has a whole whack load of new papers in for the spring/summer, they are so pretty and fun to play with! The brads and "Ribbon" charm are also from Phebe's store, and she has a new selection of spacers and charms just in!

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to wear blue this month in support of Autism!!!!

Spring Berries

Hey ladies! I hope everyone is doing well and I must say I was quite bummed that I wasn't able to go to Scrapfest this past weekend, but I heard it was a lot of fun!! I'm sure I would have spent too much and gotten myself in a little trouble with the Hubby had I gone!! ;)
Anyway, I hope everyone that had a chance to go enjoyed themselves!!!

Now on to my project...this is a card I made for Phebe at The Town Scrapper!!
This little gem is a Swiss Pixie from CC Designs is named Birgitta, and she is sooo cute!
I apologize because the true colour of her face is not photographed well ,so she looks like she has a skin condition, but it's actually just my master photography skills!!!
Any how I coloured Brigitta with my Tombow markers and made this card with really sweet DP by October Afternoon(Hay Barn) and Cosmo Cricket( Bloomers, Eat Your Veggies)!!
I even got the cute little strawberry charms and glitter brads from The Town Scrapper!!
It was literally a one-stop-shop! I looooveee it when that happens!!!!!!!

Well I'm off to post a few more new cards!!!! Thanks for peeking in!

Knight Charlie for my Man

Hello again!!!Hope everyone is doing well!!
This next card I made was a Valentine's day card for my husband! I used and image from Whiff of Joy called "Knight Charlie".....he's so handsome!

I love the way this mighty knight coloured up! It was a lot of grey initially but once i did his sleeve, belt and helmet it really balanced out! Everything for this card can be purchased at The Town Scrapper , from the DP- MVP line by We R Memory Keepers to the image and all your stamping needs!! I found that this is quite nice paper and it's double sided which I love!!! This was my first time using this company's paper and my first time making something for my husband!!!
I thought it looked pretty manly! Inside the card it's matted and I typed out my sentiment-"Happy Valentine's Day to my knight in shining armour!"
He loved the card and I had a great time making it!!
I love it!
See u soon!


Valentines Love

I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to this coming Easter weekend, not only because of its HUGE significance but also because the temperature will be in the 20 degree margin!!!
Hip hip hooray!!!

This card was made for Phebe at The Town Scrapper for Valentines Day. The image is one of the last from the Humble Pie Collection.
I had a good time coloring up this image, and this was the first time I tried doing denim and the color combination turned out pretty good!!!!
Again I used my Basic Grey DP for this card and my Tombows- you know the drill, and you can find all these papers and embellishments at The Town Scrapper!!!
Stay tuned for more!!!
