"So Very Proud of You"

Hello my dear sweet friends

Today is absolutely gorgeous with the sun shining brightly and perfect temperature of 72 degrees.  However - the sad part is the weather report shows non stop rain for the next five days.  I guess it's beginning to look a lot like "Fall in Seattle".  Has the weather begun to change for you yet??

This is a project I made as a new design team member for "Not Just Cards Challenges. Yep, I am really excited to be a part of this group of women and I hope you will stop by and take a look at all the DT's projects as well as join in, if you haven't already.

Interestingly my first project was all about "Graduation" and I decided to make an altered wood block as a keepsake gift.  All the sayings, cap and diploma are from DeeDee Designs.

I painted the wood block brown and covered it in various cardstocks from "Bo Bunny".  Once it was dry I added the sayings, lots of bling and some "Jumbo Java" ink to add some more distressing to the edges.  Oh, and I added some stickles around the middle of the graduation cap and on the tassle.  I am really happy with this project and I am so thankful you decided to stop by and say hello.

With hugs and smiles

I am also entering this project into the following challenges:

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…
