Happy Monday my dear sweet friends - I hope your weekend was a relaxing one.  It's been busy busy for me and now I can finally sit down, relax a little and share some exciting news with you.

I am so delighted, tickled, excited and honored to be part of Tammy's Scrappin Corner as a design team member.  If you haven't crossed the cyber path with Tammy's Scrappin Corner yet I hope you will check it out and join in our weekly challenges.  Here is a link to her website:   Tammy's Scrappin Corner.  

They are also having a call for more DT members so if you are interested please check out the website for more information.  The information is located in the tab called DT Call and Committments.

This weeks challenge is "Anything Fall" and we have two amazing sponsors:

Digi Darlas
A Day for Daises.  

This means there are two chances to win one of the prizes for this weeks challenge.  I really hope you will visit and join in this weeks challenge.  I would love to see what you create!!  For my first project I used one of the Digi Darlas digital stamps called - Sweeping Leaves" to make this card.  I wanted a clean and simple design and it was a lot of fun working with this image.

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.

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…
