Hello and I am so glad you stopped in to visit my blog.   This absolutely darling image is from Bugaboo stamps.  I just love all of Jodie's new Brat series.   You must go and check them out. 
Copics used were R27, R29, YG63, B14 and B24.  The paper is from  SandyLion - School Stripes that I got at Archievers.  Flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch.    Thank you for looking and if you get a chance please leave a comment.

This card is for the Sew Many Cards challenge now going on.   I just think this duck is just so cute and so ready to celebrate St. Paddy's Day.   Stamp is from Sew Many Cards and was colored using Copics (Y11, Y21 YG11, G82 and YG63).  Martha Steward punch and paper was from JoAnns.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I liked putting this together.

My First Tilda

Hi - I am so exited because I just finished coloring my first Tilda. I have been watching everyone's work and finally took the plunge. Of course, I used Copic markers and would love to have this critiqued. That is how I am going to learn. I have not taken any classes so any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.

This is a wall clock that I made for Lucas' room. The theme of his room is "railroads" and I decided to try my hand at decorating a clock. The original clock was from Ikea and it cost $2.99. I figured if I messed it up too bad I won't be out of too much money. lol The numbers were cut 1" and his name was cut 3/4" from Plantin Schoolbook using the shadow feature. The white background was cut using the circle at 7". The train was from Joy of the Season cut at 2 1/4 "". The circular track was manipulated in DS until I got the size I wanted. Oops - it looks like I got a couple of numbers crooked and his name, but I was pleased at the overall look.

Last Valentine Card - Promise

Posted by Picasa

Hello Everyone ---

This is a card I made for Sew Many Cards challenge #3. The theme was "Red, Silver and Black with a Valentine Day theme."

I wanted to show a friend that these images are so cute that you do not have to color them to make a card. Of course, the bling can be a little much for some people (apparently not me !! lol). She sometimes stresses out on coloring images and this way she doesn't have to stress out anymore. Of course, this is probably the last colorless image you will see from me because coloring an image is my therapy. LOL I hope you enjoy.
