Speedy elf

This week's challenge is wheels! I searched the Stamp on it site for wheels and came across this adorable image.

So, today I'm using the Elf digi, you can find him here Q-digi18904

I used my sharpies and colored pencils to color him and let my cameo cut him out.
I used some pearl paint for the snowflake on the ornament and glitter to highlight his stripes on his clothes. 

I mounted him on an action wobble.

Unicorn fun

 Have you heard of the Kit and Clowder coloring group on Facebook?
Well if you haven't, you must go check it out.  You can learn some amazing things from them.
I still need a lot of work on my coloring skills but I'm trying.

Anyway, this image was a freebie from Craftin' Desert Divas for the Kit and Clowder group.
I created the scene using my SIL program then colored her with my colored pencils and used gamsol to blend.

Hoppy Mother's day

Hi, I'm back this week with a fun Mother's day card using that adorable new bunny set I gave you a peak of last week.
You must go check out the set in the store,
I created this cute scene in my SIL program and cut 3 sets of balloons to make a fun card.

The little basket is a die cut I have, I thought it would be cute for him to be giving his mom some carrots as part of her gift.

 I used my gel pens to add some shine to his face, foot and the butterfly.

I'm adding this card to the Hiding in my craftroom challenge of Any holiday!
I am also entering this in the new to me blog of 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Their challenge is anything goes with a critter!

Butterfly shaker card

Cheryl is at it again with her amazing designs. I've got a handful of files I need to get busy on.

This card is super cool, I love that you can make 3 separate spaces or one big space.
I made 3 separate spaces and filled each one with different clay pieces and silver beads.
 I kept the embellishments simple and just added some washi tape and a twine bow.

Fair wins!!

If you are on my facebook list then you've already seen these ribbons, I am so proud of myself and never did I ever expect this type of response when I entered my blankets in the county fair.

I picked 3 of my favorite blankets (had to get the lighthouse back from my mom)

This first one is made with the granny squares from Nadia's granny square a day for 2016.
I received a third place ribbon in the category.

I also entered my Christmas graph-gahn from
As you can see I recieved a blue ribbon AND 3rd over all in class.

 And last not least and best of all!!!!!
My lighthouse blanket from got me a blue ribbon, the first in class AND the Fair goers choice ribbons!!
I didn't know that the fair goers could vote on items so it's a huge honor that so many people loved my blanket (mom's blanket, it's back in her possession now)

Now, to find a shadow box to display these in and I'm already working on next year's submissions.

You are my sunshine

Hello there, I am sharing a quick card using one of the new sets.
You must go check out the set in the store, SO adorable!!
 I let my cameo cut out the bunny for me along with the You are my sunshine tag I had in my SIL library. I added the line to cut above the words so I could tuck the bunny behind the words.
I cut his hands out and popped them up to make the flowers appear to be in his hands.

I used the title from the Spring is Blooming 2 set for the inside of my card.
I used the offset feature in my SIL program to cut around the words then arranged them in a fun way.

Ghosts of Christmas past

12 Months of Christmas card link up

It's that time again!!
This month at the 12 months of Christmas link up, the theme is Ghosts of Christmas past.
We chose a sheet of images from

I used some files from my SIL library and turned them into digital images instead of cut files using the pattern papers that Lisa created.

 I cut 2 flowers in different sizes then layered them adding some gems to the center.
 I kept the card pretty simple since the patterns are fairly busy, not to mention how picky the post office has become with bumpy cards.

Here is a sample of the papers we were given and what will be offered up as your prize if you play along!

Our sponsor this month is Papercrafting World!  This sweet mermaid is one of her files.

I originally was going to make a card but then I got to thinking and realized Ariel is a lot like my daughter.  They are both big time collectors of things they don't need but they love their things dearly.
So I made this lay out with that in mind.

 Isn't she great? I just love how she turned out!
