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…

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:




Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile
