Hippo in a Hot Rod Convertible

Hello My Sweet Friends

It's Friday and the the weekend is just around the corner.  Do you have any special plans??  I will be making some new creations and sharing either here or on my Hugs4TheHeart FB page.  I would love it if you stopped by and said hello.

Today I am sharing my DT project using this adorable image from artist Sandra Caldwell named:

Hot Rod Hippo #1627  (Link to this image in Sandra's Etsy Shop)

Here's the link to her FB Group:

Sandra has so many amazing and adorable images in her Etsy Shop.  I really hope you will check them out - you will not be disappointed.  They really will make you smile.

She really makese smile.  Maybe it's because it reminds me of my mustang convertible I had a few years ago.  Plus I love hippoes.  

I colored this cutie using Copics and colors used are:

C01, 03, 05 (Hippo)
R35, 37 37 (Hot Rod)
Y13, 15, 17 (Dress and Bow)
White Gel Pen 
Small Flowers

I added the flowers the way to create the look of a frame.  I wanted it to look like she just bought this car and was ready for a long road trip but having her photo taken first.  

I hope she brings you a smile!!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello.  Your comments always mean a lot to me.

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…
