I Have Been Nominated!!!

Happy Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend was fabulous.  

I received some exciting news this morning and wanted to share it with you as well as asking for your  help. All the details are below:


The image you see above is a wall plaque I made for a sweet friend as part of a swap group on the Rick St Dennis Facebook Group. 

The image is called "Ruffles" and she is an image created by Rick St. Dennis.  I created her by:

  1. Painted the wood plaque.
  2. Added pattern cardstock to the front with Mod Podge.
  3. Added a decorative border on the left side with Mod Podge which is also cardstock.
  4. I used my Copics to color her and then fussy cut the image out.
  5. Used Mod Podge to glue the image onto the plaque.
  6. Added two more coats of Mod Podge.
  7. Packaged her and mailed her to my swap buddy Helen in Ohio.

I absolutely loved making her and was delighted when Helen let me know she received it and said "love love love!!" 

I entered the project into the Rick St Dennis Coloring Challenge which is still ongoing.

And that's how my creation was chosen as one of the top 7 nominations into the Pick of the Week entry into the Rick St. Dennis Blog.

I am asking all my friends to click on the above Rick St. Dennis link and look at the 7 nominations and choose one.  And of course I hope you choose mine however I really want you to choose your personal favorite.  That really is very very important to me.

I appreciate your taking the time to read my post as well as taking the time to vote.

With hugs and smiles always

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…
