Challenge 19 - Plum, Lime and Orange - Color Challenge

Well dear friends I sure hope the weather has been cooler where you are.  On Father's Day it reached over 112 degrees here and it was miserable.  It is suppose to be cooling down this week and only reach temperatures in the high 80's.  

This week's challenge is called Plum, Lime and Citrus (Color Inspiration).  I hope you will check out all the other Tuesday Alchemy design team blogs and their wonderful creations for this week.  

I decided to alter a small composition book this time.  I covered the front and back of composition book with a textured plum cardstock.  Stamped the flower shapes onto orange pattern cardstock and cut out each size and added pop up dots for some extra dimension between each layer.  I figured this was a perfect time to use some of my lime looped ribbon and added it across the bottom of the grass I cut out of lime cardstock.  Used the same lime looped ribbon to make the stem and leaves for the flower.  Added buttons with a lime rhinestone on top and used it for the center of the flower.  

I love altering journals and notebooks and they make a great gift for someone special.  I hope this quick project will inspire you to alter some small composition books of your own (if you haven't already done so).  And if you do - send me your link - I would love to see your creations.

Please join us in this week's challenge - we have a great sponsor Mayzy Art who has some amazing and wonderful digital images -  plus - the challenge winner this week will be able to choose 8 digital images from Mayzy Art (and color me green with envy).  I am a huge fan and will be posting another project later this week with one of the digital images from Mayzy Art.  I hope you will check out the Mayzy Art Etsy store and take a look for yourself.  The link can be found on our Tuesday Alchemy Blog or

Stay cool and please come back in a few days and see my newest project.

With smiles and hugs

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
