It's a Relaxing Kind of Day - Grapes vs. Bubbes

Happy Happy Friday My Dear Sweet Friends
It's Friday and I couldn't be happier.  It's been a really busy week and I am TIRED!!  LOL
Today I am sharing a project I made using this adorable image by Sherri Baldy.  
Fluffy Image 067

There is quite a story behind this project and it still cracks me up.  I absolutely love this image and wanted to create something fun with her.  I came across the rub-on sentiment "Be Unique" in my old stash and it was perfect.  So because of this sentiment I decided to color all the bubbles purprle.  I thought it would be fun and "unique,"  As I started putting the lace around the outside edges it hit me like a baseball bat across my forehead - "Oh my goodness, it looks like she's sitting in a tub full of grapes."  Panic set in.  I showed my sister and she said, "Sis, I can't lie, yes they look like grapes."  Yep, so it's up to you sweet friends - you can decide for yourself - do you see bubbles or…

"Under Purr"

Hello My Sweet Friends
I am back with another DT card that I created using a new released image from Knitty Kitty Designs (Annabel Haines).  This image is called "Under Purr."  I think that's just purr-fect - and Annabel comes up with the cutest names for all her Kitty images.  

Here's the link to her Etsy Shop:

I colored this image with Copics and it was so much fun.  At first I thought it might be a little to detailed but it actually wasn't.  It was such a joy to color this adorable image.  We hope you will stop by her Facebook Group and say Hello.

Garden Hippo

Good Morning Sweet Friends
Today I am sharing a DT card I created using an absolutely adorable image by artist Sandra Caldwell.  This image is called "Garden Hippo #783 and is available in Sandra's Etsy Shop.  I absolutely love hippoes and this one just makes me smile.  And this is just one of many adorable images created by Artist Sandra Caldwell.  
To create the background I used the new Distress Crayon's by Tim Holz. I love those crayons - they are so much fun to work with. I used Copics to color this adorable hippo. And since I love hippoes - this one just makes me smile every time I look at it.
