It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

Painter Duck

Happy Tuesday My Dear Friends Today I am sharing another card I made using this adorable new image by Artist Naz Smith owner of Sasayaki Glitter.   This handsome fella is called Painter Duck and from what I can tell already - he's got some artistic talent.    Painter Duck can be found here in the Sasayaki Glitter Etsy Shop: Painter Duck I love how his tongue is sticking out to the side - I think it's because he takes his painting quite seriously.  I often wonder if I am doing the same thing when I am coloring with my Copics.  To be honest - I hope not because I wouldn't look as CUTE as he does. I used the following Copic Colors: BG13, 15, 18 C3, 5, 7 V20, 22, 25, 28 YG21, 23 YR20, 23, 24, 27 I also used a stencil to create the background. I hope he brings you a smile today. Thanks for stopping by - it always makes my day! With hugs and smiles Laine Inspiration DT Team Sasayaki Glitter
