It's a COUSIN kind of Day!!!


Hello Sweet Friends

It's Friday eand the weekend is almost here!!!  Any big plans??  For me I am going to stay home, take it easy (I am still battling some pneumonia) and hopefully color.

It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT with this fabulous image from artist Sandra Caldwell.  Does it remind you of anyone from many many moons ago?  It did for me and I love the show when I was a kid and would still watch it if it was on TV.  Maybe I should check into that - could be on YouTube.  I think I will do some research later.  


You can find this fabulous image here:  Mr. It #1093

I just had to share this handsome man today and I hope you brings you a smile like he always does me.  

As always I appreciate your stopping by, saying hello and leaving me such sweet comments.  It always makes my day.

Christmas Mouse -


Happy Monday My Dear Friends

Today I am sharing my DT card using this fabulous image by Artist Sandra Caldwell called "Christmas Mouse."  It was love at first sight with this sweet face mouse - just couldn't resist him  And definitely a joy to color.  The links to this image and Sandra's Etsy Shop are just below.




I just took a look at Sandra's Etsy Shop because Monday is when she add's all her new digital images for the week.  And as always, totally outstanding.  I really hope you will check them out.  

I colored him with Copics and then printed another image of him on the music background paper.  I fussy cut him and added him to the front of the image I printed.  I used one of my die-cut to create the beautiful border.  And now I have my first Christmas card made.

Here's the link to Sandra's Facebook page - we hope you will stop over and say Hello and maybe join in the challenge we currently have going.

Have a blessed week!!

Weekend Walter


Happy Monday My Sweet Friends

I hope your day is going amazingly well.

Today I am sharing my DT project with Classic Design Team Open Challenge using this fabulous image called Weekend Walter from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  


Here are all the links:




It was so much fun coloring Weekend Walter.  I think he's a really adorable image and when I checked out Dr. Digi's Stamp Store I saw so many more.  I think I will be going back for some more.

I used Copics to create this whole card.  I used a brick stencil to create the background.  The plants are rub-on's and I used an image from an ephemera package by Tim Holz to create the photo in the background  I wanted Walter to feel totally at home.

I really appreciate your stopping by today and your comments always make my day.

Clean Be Clause

Happy Happy Monday Dear Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing my DT card using a new image from artist Sandra Caldwell called #987 Clean Be Claus.  The link is below in Sandra's Etsy Shop.  



He was so much fun to play around with.  I used a brick theme stencil to make the background look likes he's actually just getting out of the shower.  He looks so clean doesn't he??  I colored him with Copics and used various Christmas theme cardstocks to create the card.

Its so hard to believe summer is almost gone and Christmas is right around the corner.  

Sandra has some amazing new images in her Etsy Shop as well.  Here's the link to her actual shop and our Facebook Group:

Pigeons and Petals

Happy Friday My Sweet Friends

I am so ready for the weekend - what about you??

Today I am sharing a card I made using this adorable new image from artist Sandra Caldwell called: "Pigeons and Petals."


I absolutely love this image and decided to have some extra fun with it.  Truth be told I was on a second do-over (I messed up my coloring) when it occurred to me to use my stencils on the birds.  I have been having this addiction with my stencils lately and using them on these birds was perfect.  I used Copics to color as well as add ink with the stencils.  

Here are the links:




I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!

Zomballs???


 Happy Monday My Sweet Friends

This is my second post today - it's been really crazy at my home the past couple of days and I am playing catch up.  

I am so excited to share this image - now keep in mind I am not a huge fan of Halloween but these adorable images by Knitty Kitty kind of stole my heart.  It was a little touch and go in the coloring department but before long I was having so much fun.  Annabel Haines artist of Knitty Kitty Designs has such cute and fun images.  It's so much fun being on her Design Team.  These little guys are called "Zomballs" which is hilarious.  Here's the link to this image in Annabel's Etsy Shop:


And here's the link to her Etsy Shop:



I used Copics to colors these Zomballs and used a brick background stencil on the table and back wall.  I also fussy cut the images out so I could add them at the very end.  It's a real joy to color Annabel's kitty images.  You really should take a peek at her Etsy Shop.  She also has a fabulous Facebaook page and the link is below:
