Back in the Posting Saddle Again and It's a Bloobel Kind of Day

Hello My Sweet Friends

I think I am finally back in the crafting and posting saddle again.  I am getting  a little more settled from the move from Washington State to Oregon.  I am still trying to figure out how to get my craft area set up.  We are temporarily staying with my sister until hubby finds a new job.  I even ended up spending a couple days in the hospital but turns out it was nothing serious and that's good news.  

I also thought it would be fun to share the card I made using this amazing image from Artist Lisa Bloobel.  It's an image we are using for her first progressive challenge which ends tomorrow.  I had so much fun with this image and we had to fill in the sign with our "protest" message.

(Second Version)

As you can see this one looks a lot different than the one above.  I had just finished coloring her and added all the signs and put her off to the side on my table.  A few moments later hubby sat down but spilled his coffee which actually had more cream than coffee (hence the color - LOL).  It wasn't funny at that particular moment but I am thrilled it turned out the way it did.  I am much happier with my second version.  What do you think???
If you would love to join in Lisa's monthly progressive challenge here is the link for more information:

 Thanks so much for stopping by and your comments mean the world to me.

  1. Great card Laine, super image and I like how both images have turned out. Bet the air was blue when hubby spilled the coffee. Hugs Jennifer xx

    1. Thanks so much Jennifer!! Hubby felt so bad but it was also hysterical. I always appreciate your stopping by. Thanks so much!!


  2. Too funny, too cute, Laine! That's how I feel about purple. :-D

    1. Hi NanaConnie - isn't it funny how we feel about our favorite colors. It just cracks me up!! Wonderful to see you here my friend and I will definitely be visiting you too!!


  3. Hum, is hubby still alive? :) I think I would have struggled not to explode a little! It's much better to spill coffee on something BEFORE it's coloured in, I hope you told him that for next time? I love the second version, and her pink protest!

    1. Hi Annabel - yes, hubby is still alive. LOL!!! He felt so bad. He had the saddest look on his face and kept saying "Sorry" in such a sad tone of voice. I was just stunned when it happened though. LOL!!! Thanks for stopping by Annabel.

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…
