Love her work! This was a TLC on SCS in July and I never got around to making one.
Today was the day! I've used a digital image that Mo had on Paper Craft Planet for FREE! She does that once in a while as she reaches new milestones in membership! Generous!
I seem unable to end my love affair with Kraft card stock! I was going to use white for this card, but the 12 x12 white I have is so flimsy! Back to my Kraft!
There may be a lot of pink appearing this week too! I just love this Bo bunny double dots paper! It's stored in a different place in my craft room so sometimes I forget about it! When I come upon it again I go crazy!
Speaking of craft rooms-I have taken some pictures while it was clean and will work on a post tonight! I also have a Magnolia card for tomorrow!
Colors for this image are as follows:
face E000, E01 and R20
Hair E31, E99, E25, E59
pinks: R0000, R20, R22, R24
other, BG0000, E40, E43,C1, C3, C5
Well, have a great Sunday! Hope you can visit tomorrow and thanks so much for coming by today!

I'm so sorry-I've misplaced the list of colors that I just had an hour ago! If I find it I'll post my colors.
Really glad today is Friday-ready for the weekend. It's cold and snowy-why not stay home and papercraft!? That's my plan!
Have a great day!

Sorry, that's a bit off topic!
Another love is Cosmo Cricket papers! And my new love-SEWING on cards! It's so fun to see the results! Mine isn't always straight, but it makes me happy!
Henry is colored with my copic markers, of course in W1, W3, W5 and W7 and then a little E31. The heart is R14, R24, R46.
I emboss my nestability and while still in the die I use a 1" stencil brush to swirl color on lightly. The colors I used on this one are Aqua mist and then some Distress Vintage Photo to dull the Aqua.
I was really stuck for embellishments-no good match in the flowers that I had and there was no good match in card stock so back to the Cosmo line I went and cut hearts from my nestabilities and cardboard to make my own chipboard embellishments! The red one is raised on dimensionals.
That's about it for this one! Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your comments! Another valentine tomorrow! Have a great day!

My goodie bag is the small treat bag with tin ties from Papertrey Ink. It looks like I tied my round tag to the top, but I actually left some embroidery thread on the back and taped it onto the bag.

My plan was to be funny and do this as my SECOND card with one sporting Tilda as my FIRST! Well, that joke was on me as DH and I finished my craft room this weekend leaving precious little time for actually MAKING cards!! I had this guy colored up from a couple of days ago so quickly got him onto a pink card!

I hope you can go check them out!
My card is quite simple. I love to make shape cards with my Nestabilities and Window Lala is the center of this chocolate brown flower! This type of card is also a nice small card to put on a gift as a tag. I colored her with my copics and cut her out so I could raise her on dimensionals. The dp is by cosmo cricket.
I used copics E000, E01 and R20 for her skin and lips. Her eyes are E33 and E25. Her hair is Y21, E33 and E25 and the blue is BG0000, and BG72. the front piece of her dress is E40 and 41.

Santa Dave brought me a Janome and I've practiced on a card, but this is the first I've posted. I know it's not good, but stitching doesn't have to be perfect on a vintage look card. Does it?!
Well, I have a lot to learn, I know! Please don't look to harshly upon it.
I used the wonderful pink rose shades of R81, R83, R85 for the pinks
BG0000 and BG10 for the aqua. A dark brown for his mouth and buttons
and the E41, E43 and a little E25 for the browns. I added some stickles after I took the photos.
Thanks for looking! Come see a Magnolia card tomorrow, thought it's not yet done and I'm not sure I like it-I'll show you anyway!
Have a great Monday!

I used the little tree stamp from the recent Magnolia collection. I like it all by itself so I made a little frame from Baja Breeze and mounted on a white card! A few stickles and Done!

so I decided to upload just the card again. I really have NO IDEA how Blogger works!
Please take a look tomorrow-there is a La La Land Blog hop with new images and I get to show off a really cute one! See ya! Have a great evening!
Thanks, Sharon, this was lots of fun! When Sharon posed this challenge I chose my image right away and since I had just organized my Mags and found this wonderful Winter Fence I was ready to start! I chose my dp last and just colored Edwin in pretty typical "boy" colors. My card base is Kraft-it's my "go to" color when I don't know where I'm going with a card. It matches EVERYTHING!

The Copic Creations challenge #19 is to color FUR! It's a fun challenge and after you've looked around we hope you'll enter your furry card to win the prize! Please take a look at the Copic Creations Challenge Blog for the other designers' cards and I'm sure Mary has linked something from Maryanne on coloring fur if you need any advice on how to get started!
The prize? It's sponsored by Squigglefly this time and the winner gets their choice of THREE images from the store!
Iused a bit of the "Nasty Rag" technique, but I'm afraid it doesn't show well. Maybe if you click to see him close up. Anyway, I started with my lightest brown and worked my way to the darker colors. Just before the darkest brown (E59) I wet my rag (actually a white face cloth that I use for this technique, it's not "nasty" yet) with blender solution straight from the bottle and blot the image to remove and "mottle" the color a bit. I didn't want to overdo it and remove too much. Finally, I added my darkest color.
Here are the browns I used: E34, E43, E55, E25 and D59.
You have TWO weeks to make and enter a card! We hope you'll join in-what better way to start the New Year!
