Warm in Winter

Happy Happy Happy Friday My Dear Sweet Friends

It is so cold here - we actually have had a little snow (just flakes) today but its just to cold for me.  And winter hasn't even begun yet.  How are you this Friday??

Today I am sharing the card I made for the Sister Act Card Challenge.  It's fun being a part of this Design Team because it actually helps me take the time to make a few greeting cards.  I probably should start making my Christmas cards but haven't had been able to yet.

For this card I used an image from "A Day for Daisies" called Warm in Winter - and I think this little bird is just to cute.  I paper pieced the bird and colored with my Copics.  I just had to add some snow - so used some dimensional puff and used my heating gun to puff it up.  I am happy to see he is a happy little bird with a full belly eating all those berries.

The Design Team has some great cards to share this week and I hope you will go visit the Sister Act Challenge Blog as well as join in the challenge.  

Thanks so much for stopping by - I always appreciate it and it means so much to me.  Have a great weekend!!  

I have been working on some new projects and can't wait to share them with you a little later this week.  

With hugs and smiles


  1. Again a wonderful piece of art. I love the little bird and the way you made it the main interest of your creation. Such beautiful colors that match with the green of the bird and the tan on the background. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  2. Thanks for following my blog. I just peek your creations and it was balm for my soul and hart.

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…
