Adorable Numbats

Happy Happy Tuesday My Sweet Friends

I sure hope your weekend was fabulous!!  

Mine was busy working on some coloring projects and one of them was this adorable Numbat image from Aurora Wings.  Mitzi Sato-Wiuff is the very talented artist and designer of all images from Aurora Wings.  



Mitzi is very passionate about Numbats and she had a fundraiser "Color for a Cause" to help raise awareness with the donations going to a conservation study. I was so delighted to have received this sweet image free for making a donation to such a worthy cause for these adorable marsupials.

Mitizi is having a coloring challenge for everyone who donated and this is the project I made.  This is an altered wood block.

I colored with my Copics and used the following colors:

E23, E25, E27
R20, R81, R83
BV20, BV23, BV25
G12

I sanded the block. 
Painted it brown.
Covered all of it with a burgundy cardstock.
Added a coating of Mod Podge.
Added another layer of a coordinating cardstock to the front of block.
I fussy cut out the Numbat image and used more Mod Podge as a sealant.
I added bling on the outside edges.

I really wanted to make something I could display in my craft area to keep as a memento.  This really was a fun project to make.

If you haven't seen any of the amazing images from "Aurora Wings" I hope you will check out her Etsy Shop and if you can - come join us on Facebook and join in all the fun.



Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always appreciate it and your sweet comments always make me smile.

Have a blessed day!!

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…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.
