It's a "Franken Hippo" Kind of Day

Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend was fabulous.  Mine was pretty quite due to fighting bronchitis and going to the Emergency Room.  The medications are finally kicking in and I am on the road to recovery.  And so glad I am.

Today I am sharing my DT project using a wonderfully fun image from Sandra Caldwell called "Fraken Hippo."  And I had to much fun working with him.

I used my Copics to color him and then used various other embellishments to create the background.

The Copic colors I used are:

C3, 5, 7
V17, 25, 28
YG21, 23, 25
YR04, 07, 09

You can find this image and so many more at Sandra's Etsy Shop using the link below:

I hope you will also check out her Facebook Group page and the link is also below:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I always appreciate your sweet comments.

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

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…

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…
