Challenge 40 - Christmas (Shaped Cards)

Hello my sweet friends -

Hope you are doing well and had a wonderful weekend.  Are you ready for Christmas??

Wow - last week was a tough one.  My sister is finally getting around a little better and I am working on getting back into the swing of things.

This weeks challenge with Tammy's Scrappin Corner is all about Christmas and shaped cards.  Sounds pretty simple doesn't it??  We have two great sponsors:

The design team has put together some fantastic creations this week and you will find all their links on the right side of my side bar.  You will be amazed at what they have created this week and we hope you are inspired as well as eager and ready to join in this weeks challenge as well.

I used a design from QKR Stampede called "Elf riding on a Christmas Tree Bulb" and I think he is adorable.

I wish I had been able to take a better picture - sometimes it looks like the background is gold instead of a green.  I added rhinestones all around the scalloped circle.  I colored him with Copics and added lots of bling.  He looks like he is having a great time to me.  

Sure hope you will join in our challenge this week and can't wait to see what you create.  Here is the link to Tammy's Scrappin Corner.

With hugs and smiles

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…
