Ballet Fairy

Happy Happy Thursday My Dear Sweet Friends

I hope your week has been going fabulously!

I have some wonderful and exciting news to share today.  I am now on the Scrapper's Delight Design Team.  I am on the Thrifty Thursday Team - WooHoo!!  I am thrilled and over-joyed and thank you so much Janice for such a wonderful opportunity.  It means so much to me.  And this is my first project which is a greeting card using this fabulous image called "Ballet Fairy."  

This adorable ballet fairy is part of Thrifty Thursday's at Scrapper's Delight which means that she and some other adorable images are only a $1.00 for a limited time.  The link above takes you to Janice's Store.

It was love at first sight with this little cutie.  I must confess there is one thing I always do first and that is add some color to the lips.  It's almost an obsession.  I am not sure why but it might be due to  always seeing mom put her lipstick first. Maybe I am a little strange but it's fun and just part of who I am and it makes me smile.  LOL

I then added a light base color to her wings and moved on to her hair.

The Copic colors I used are for this card are:

BV11, 13
E000, 00, 11, 31, 33, 35
R81, 83, 85
YG21, 23, 25

I do a lot of paper-piecing/fussy cutting and fortunately she was easy to cut out.  I printed another image of her onto the multi-tone cardstock and glued the colored image on top.  I wanted to give a festive look and added the two rows of ribbon.  She was a joy and delight to color.

 I hope you will check out the Scrapper's Delight store.  There are so many amazing images to color as well as the Thrifty Thursday $1.00 images.  The link is above.

Have a great rest of your week.

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.
