New Cards

I had a very busy weekend and am now just catching up. If I ever want to redo my kitchen cabinets again , someone slap me. Yes ,they look great ,but half way into it I looked at the project and thought "what am I doing". 4 days later they were finished. However ,I did find time to crop all day sat. with some lovely ladies.These are the cards I completed. ( one of them is for my daughter's birthday but I won't tell witch one .hahaha) The first card is Krista's rendition of Elphaba , the next is her
Party Hardy, and the last Is Janessa. All were colored with copic markers (except Elphie's hair, pencils)

Valentine's day

With Valentine's Day ( my great grandpap was named Valentine) right around the corner, I've been making alot of cards in that theme.Here is my latest.
Using a Digi  fromKrista and paper from Basic Grey :Kissing Booth and Beaded Oval : spellbinders
I am entering her in the following

                love is in the air

             red, pink and white
                Love is in the Air

This was the hardest

This image is colored on real Kraft paper, the kind grocery bags are made of. So I had to adapt to a different way of blending , no gamsol here.  As challenging as it was ,I am very pleased with the out- come.  The image that I  used is a Red Lead stamp and the paper is Graphic 45. I used Prisma colored pencils and the Lacy squares from Spellbinders. I hope you like what I did and stop back again . Any comments are truly appreciated.

New Challenge

This week over at Dutch Dare we are having a photo inspired challenge. Brought to us by
 SIMPLE HUE .I love photo inspirations because they offer a wide range of interpretation from color to theme. I chose color for this one (  I really want Spring to be here, it's 50 degrees out now). It fits well with valentines day coming up. Please join us and show us your interpretation ,I bet you could come up with a few. Here's mine!

Just a little bit of what I enjoy doing , hope you enjoy looking.

After doing a little bit of alot of different crafts I have gone back to what I have always loved. I enjoy coloring , drawing and designing pictures. And thanks to the love and (prodding) of my DH, I am where I belong and am more happy .
