Challenge 37 - Random Word -Bath, Duct Tape, Sparrow

Happy Tuesday my dear sweet friends

Sure hope you are doing wonderfully.  Boy, I can't believe how much the temperature has dropped here in Bakersfield.  Cool enough to wear a sweatshirt .  Wow - guess autumn is finally here!!

It's time for another challenge and this week it's all about a bath, duct tape or sparrow.  Please keep in mind you do not have to use all three on your card or other creations.  You can use one, two or all three - it's totally up to you.  We have two sponsors this week and they are:

Scrapper's Delights - 6 Single Digital Stamps

Stitchy Bear Stamps - $10 Store Voucher

One of my favorites things to do is to relax and oak in the bath tub.  Sometimes with a glass of wine and a magazines!!  So choosing which word to use was easy for me.  I also decided to make a card because I just love this image and thought she would be fun to play with.  I did some paper piecing on this card because the copics I needed for the baby were dried out.  Talk about a bummer!!  Anyway - I hope you will join in this weeks challenge and you can check out the wonderful creations made by the design team on the Tuesday Alchemy blog.  You can also find the links for each DT's blog where you can visit for added inspiration.  

I also made this altered recipe box from an old one that needed a new look.  I love love love birds and thought this would make a quick and easy project to add on to this weeks challenge.

Thanks for joining in with us and I can't wait to see what you create.  

With hugs and smiles

  5. Love both of these, Laine! Great color combo on the card and the sparrow stamp on the recipe box is so sweet. FAbulous work!

  6. Time just flies by so quickly! I can't believe Thanksgiving is coming up so soon!

    I love the texture you've achieved with the bathtub, so cute!...And as always you're a master of vintage art! I started a recipe portfolio a few years ago, but I just couldn't keep up with organizing it enough to be useful. I should give it a try again as I am getting back into cooking more often.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

Cinderella goes Camo

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…
