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…

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…
