Hey there all!! How are you? Thanks SO much for checking in with me!! I have FOUR creations to share, over the next several days!! I was coloring away last night! SO, hope you will stop back!!
My FIRST creation is a BIT girly! Haha!! I used the BALLET MOUSE, from the AWESOMATED Lori!! You can get one of your very own at BY LORI DESIGNS!! She has SO many CA-ute images, that you MAY want MORE than one!! I guarantee it!! I colored little miss mouse in with my Copics, colors are below, and I tried to keep her simple!! You know me and layering!! That being KNOW it was tough NOT to!! I used some misc DSP, we all know me and that stuff TOO!! Haha! I used some silver organdy ribbon from Joann's; the corner thingys and other embellies were a gift, so I am NOT sure where they are from!! The sentiment is from VERVE, Beautiful You, and I punched that out with my SU tag punch! I completed everything with SU cardstock! Hope you like BALLET MOUSE and hope you visit BY LORI DESIGNS!! She such a GREAT person!! You will LOVE her AND her images!! Have a WONDERFUL Friday and I will see you tomorrow!! Busy, busy weekend ahead! For.......not only is it Halloween? It is my mom's birthday and Kyah has TWO football games this weekend!! Boohoo.....this is the last of the season!! Just when we were getting the hang of everything!! See you soon!! Take care all and ENJOY LIFE!!!

Good EVENING all!! Thanks for stopping back!! Just a QUICK one for you and I will let you be on your way! Haha! Like I am EVER quick!! Yeah......I know! This time I promise! I wanted to share with you my PAPER PRETTIES challenge card!! I followed the SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY too!!! The PAPER PRETTIES challenge this week was to create something........

PWC125 is the SWEET SKETCH.................

So, what do you think?? I say......easy peasy!!! You can DO it!! Here is my take on the TWO! I used my NEW, LOVE YOU THIS MUCH COOPER!!! From PAPER PRETTIES, of course!! Isn't he the SWEETEST??? I LOVE him!! I know, I know.....I ALWAYS say that!! What can I say........this Cooper kid looks like my Kade, only with MORE hair!! Haha!! My poor Kade still is losing hair!! Sorry......getting off on a tangent!! I stamped Cooper with my Memento Tuxedo ink, onto my Georgia Pacific cardstock. I colored him in with my Copics,as always, and layered him on MME dsp!! Then I mounted all of that on SMOKEY PTI cardstock; finishing it off with a misc embellishment thingy!! Hope you like!! You can find my Copic colors below!! Have an AWESOME day tomorrow!! See you on Friday!! Until then?? ENJOY LIFE!!!

**Don't forget the click to see it better!!


Another FIRST challenge that is!! Hey there folks!! How are ya?? It is WEDNESDAY!!! my schedule states, this is the FIRST of TWO posts for today!! SO....thanks for stopping by!!
Now, as my title states, haha, I am here to share ANOTHER first with you all!! Today is my FIRST entry into an SCS challenge!!! Can you believe it?? I don't know what in the world took me SO long! The challenge for today was a SKETCH challenge!! Today's challenge came from an AWESOME friend of mine!! KORIN........over at SWEET N SASSY stamps was the hostess with the MOSTESS today!! She is SO sweet!! I just LOVE her!! Her sketch was PRETTY darn lovable too, I might add!!! Check it out!!
What do you think? Cool, huh? While we are on the whole FIRST thing? I though it only appropriate that I use one of my FIRST and FAVES, from SWEET N SASSY stamps!! Of course, I do NOT have the packaging anymore and was NOT able to find it on KORIN'S site. Therefore I have just named this SWEET owl........SLEEPY OWL!! Haha! I think it may have been something like SLEEPY OLIVIA? Something like that!! Anyway.........I colored her in with my Copics, layered her on Basic Grey DSP, layered THAT on PTI cardstock, added some misc felt flowers, and finished it off with some misc organdy ribbon!! I have been TRYING to list all the Copic colors I used. However, as LUCK would have it, my son decided he was going to DUMP all of my Copics!!!! Including the ones I had set aside, to mark down as being used!!! GEESH!! I apologize for that, BUT, I am NOT sure what all I used!!! I will continue to work on that for you!! HAHA!!
OK, hope you play along and hope to see you later this evening for my NEXT post of the day!! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY, until then!! ENJOY LIFE!!!

Hey there!! HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Thanks for stopping by for some FRIDAY FUN!!! Sorry it's a LATE night Friday Fun, BUT, let me tell ya..........THIS....took a WHILE!!! Haha! Since it is late, I will make it quick and just show LOTS of pics!!! Well, I will give a BIT of background! Haha!
You all remember me telling you about the YORK STAMP AND PAPER SHOW?? Well, thanks to RUBBERNECKER, I got involved more with the whole DISTRESS INKS thing!! All I can say is?? I LOVE them!! SO.......I gave them a shot, with this project. I knew I had wanted to make treat bags for Kyah's cheerleading squad? I knew even WHICH image I wanted to use! What I didn't know?? Is if I wanted to color TWENTY of them!! SO.........I thought.........DISTRESS INKS!!! AND??? Here we are.......check it out!!!

TWENTY tags!! Can you believe it?? These are what they looked like, BEFORE I added the bags! I crumpled the tag, straightened it, rubbed Fired Brick on it,sprayed it with water, ironed it out, stamped it with this CA-ute Sugar Nellie image, tamped it AGAIN with these Technique Tuesday sentiments, and distressed the edges with my foam distressing tool!! WOOHOO!! Did you catch all that?? SO QUICK!!! That was our word at that stamp show.....QUICK!! I know, I know.....ordinarily I color, color, color!! BUT?? I think they turned out.....NOT so bad!! Don't 'cha think??
Now.....I wasn't sure HOW I wanted to add them to the bags? BUT......I really did not want to take away form the tag, or rip the bag(TOO much in them)! Haha! SO the next pics, are what the end result looked like!! I am sure it may look a little SIMPLE? BUT.....ahhhh....what can I say?? I do LIKE them!! OH.....I even have some pics of what I put IN the bags!! SO excited to give them to the girls!! BE sure to tune in tomorrow.......Kyah wanted to make cards for the girls? AND....she wanted to share them with you!! Hope you will stop by!! Thanks SO much for your thoughts!!! Hope you like!!! Have an AWESOME day tomorrow, until I see ya!! ENJOY LIFE!!!

**Check out that AWESOME pencil!! Haha!

PS......Look what is REALLY cool!!!

I matched her cheer shirt!!! I wasn't even thinking of that!! Haha!! Silly, huh??

Hey there all!! How was your day?? Hope it was filled with LOTS of fun stuff!! AND?? Speaking of FUN stuff!! What could be MORE fun than TWO challenges in one?? The ONLY thing I can think of that is close?? CUTE umbrella images!! Haha!! I am such a SUCKER for CUTIES with umbrellas!! You would be amazed how many there are! I am SERIOUS!! BUT?? One of my all time FAVES?? Is this image.........from PAPER PRETTIES!! She is called RAINY DAY FRIENDS SOPHIA!! Know what is even CLOSER to all that FAVE stuff?? She is on SALE!! Isn't she SWEET? This particular creation has a Halloween twist to it though. WHY? You may ask? Well other than the obvious month we are in, it is this weeks' PAPER PRETTIES challenge!! The FUN challenge is to create something with ...........


If you think that is FUN?? Check out the sketch I followed, from MERCY'S challenge!!


Now, I TRIED to follow it, I must point out! That bottom rectangle, the one that is supposed to be closest to the bottom of the card?? I kinda cheated and used the DSP to make it appear that way. I just did not have the heart to cover up ALL those colors, that I was trying to bring out, in the DSP!! SO......notice anything else?? I actually paper pieced a bit!!! WOOHOO!! You all know me and paper piecing!! Ha!! I am NOT good at cutting stuff out!! That being said?? I don't think I did TOO terribly bad!!! Do you?? HONEST!! What do you think?? I layered my image with AND on Imaginesce DSP; PTI cardstock too. I used my Copics, of course and some SU buttons! The Copics are listed at the end of this post, if you are interested! sure to play along and have some FUN!!! I will see you tomorrow AM, for another challenge!! YAY me!! I am finally meeting my whole........participation goal!! Thanks for stopping by!! ENJOY LIFE!!!

**PS. That sentiment is from RUBBERNECKER!!

Hey there! How are ya? Guess it is NOT afternoon anymore, now is it? Haha! WOW, how these Fridays fly!! Whew!! I wanted to share a QUICK one with ya! When I started this thing out, I was following a sketch. However, by the time I was done? It did NOT look much like the sketch!! Ha! Isn't that funny how that happens? I am NOT sure if I am completely sold on this one though, you will have to judge for yourself! I LOVED the image, once I was done with him. I just was not digging the layout! Know what I mean? I picked up these CUTE chipboard die-cuts, at Mike's, and I just HAD to use them. Ever have that? You want to use them like......RIGHT away? Ha! Anyhoo......give this a look see and tell me what you think, ok? The image is a NEW one of mine, from the stamp show I demo'd for? Remember the pics a few posts back? Yepper.......this image is from RUBBERNECKER!!! I LOVE it!! It is from the HALLOWEEN SET 3!! I am kicking myself though, I have to admit!! I ONLY got 2 of the 3? I was thinking.......what business do I have buying THREE Halloween sets? I mean really! It is only ONE holiday!!! Well......if you even call it a holiday, I guess!! get the idea! So, I convinced myself that TWO was even a bit much!! Haha!! Imagine that! ME.....convincing myself NOT to buy stamps!! Now there is a GOOD one!! know, now, I am sitting here......going......ok...when am I ordering the THIRD!!! Haha!
Hope you like my creation and I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this one!! The cardstock is PTI, the DSP is Imaginesce, I used some Pumice and Marmalade distress inks, I colored him in with my Copics, I used my CB folder on the purple CS, and the ribbon / rhinestones are misc!! Thanks SO much for stopping by!! My countdown has begun........T-3 days, until my Janome Mini gets here!! Woohoo!! Cannot wait to do some sewing on my projects!! Have an AWESOME day and I will see you later!!! ENJOY LIFE!!!


Haha!! SO sorry everyone, that I did not make it here last night!! It is called.......falling asleep on the couch!! Kali and I watched a movie, Land Before Time, and we BOTH fell asleep!! We woke up to my husband coming in from work at 4:30am!! OOOOpppppsss!! I will be back later this afternoon to visit and share!! Until then....thanks for being you and ENJOY LIFE!!!

Anyway.....'nough of that silliness!!! Right? Right on!! I wanted to share my latest creation with you all!! Now........I know I have had several PAPER PRETTIES projects to share lately? BUT.......I am tellin' you........I can't decide which image I like MOST!! Haha! I am REALLY enjoying the PAPER PRETTIES challenges too!! SO.....I am thinkin' this will HAVE to become a weekly thing!! These images just remind me of my kids, SO much!! They are SO super fun to color!! Speaking of coloring and challenges............I have colored this ANGEL WINGS SOPHIA image for TWO challenges!! OK, the FIRST is this weeks' PAPER PRETTIES challenge........
