I created this card using a Dilly Beans Image and used my copics to color her.  I hope you will join in this challenge and check out the design blogs and take a look at all their creations for this challenge.

Clean and Simple Masculine Card

Happy Happy Friday my Dear Sweet Friends -

I am back with my "Sister Act" Design Team Hat on for this weeks challenge which is "Anything Goes".  Our sponsor this week is "Fitztown" and I created my card using one of their vintage car images.  You've heard me say this more than once already but I love Fitztown.

Since I was going to create a masculine card I decided to keep it clean and simple.  I did some paper piecing for the vintage car and even added a little bling.  I hope you will join in our challenge and check out the other beautiful cards by the Design Team.

Truth is, I wanted to create something similar to my finished project below but found the thought of it intimidating.  Why?  I have no idea - b…

Happy Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends -
It's cold, wet and gloomy here - I guess that means its beginning to look a lot like winter.  I don't mind the cooler weather except it makes my fibromyalgia pain worse. The wonderful part is Mark and I got a gift card from a very special friend for our wedding a month ago and we bought a gorgeous charcoal gray soft and fluffy blanket today with the gift card.  It's so FLUFFY!!!!!  I also love it because it keeps me warm without heaviness.  Thanks Diane!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made for the Fitztown Challenge as a Guest Team Designer.  Yay - so excited and I love their images.  The image I chose is called Fae35 and I think she is an awesome image to play around with.  I especially like to practice my Copic coloring and look forward to the day when I get better at it.  My secret desire is to take the online coloring classes through Kit and Clowder.  Anyway - she's really fun to color and I am looking forward to using her ag…
