It's Winter Time In Bestie's World

Good morning Sweet Ladies
It's definitely winter here in Washington State - we are stuck at home (and I like it that way) due to lots of snow.  It's so beautiful and quiet.
It's also a perfect day to share my Besties Design Team project using this super sweet image by Sherri Baldy.  This is my reminder post for the current challenge going on over at Color It Create It Show It Off. and there is still time for you to come and join us.
I am using this adorable image called Digi Image 454 and this is the link to her and Sherri's Etsy Shop:

This cutie just makes me smile!! I decided to make a small altered composition book.  The photos below show one with a frame around it and the other is just the composition book.   




This was actually a pretty quick and easy project and I know a little girl that's just going to love this notebook.
I colored her with Copics and used the following colors:
B02, 04, 05 E00, 000, 11, 13 N5, 7 R20 RV19 YG21, 23, 25

It's a Bestie Kind of Winter

Happy Happy Wednesday (Thursday) My Sweet Friends
Today I am sharing a Design Team project I created using this adorable image from Artist Sherri Baldy.  I made a gift bag out of cardstock and then used the finished image on the front of the bag.  I had no idea what I was doing to make a bag but it was actually quite easy.  

I am afraid the bow looks scrunched and it's because I had to scan it due to it pouring rain outside.  The bag measures 6" x 9".  
Here'e the link to this image in Sherri's Shop:

This little cutie was a joy to color.  I just love her outfit.  I used two dies to create the background behind this image.  I did fussy cut her out so she would fit on the base of the smaller scalloped circle.
I used the following Copic Colors:
E000, 00, 11, 13 B00, 02 C0, 01 G40, 41, 43, 46 R20, 89
Thanks so much for stopping by and your comments always make me smile. Have a great week - and the weekend is almos…

The Beautiful Mermaid

Happy Happy Wednesday Sweet Friends
Today I am sharing my Design Team Project with The Classic Design Team Open Challenge using this absolutely fabulous image by Artist Julia Spiri.  I love mermaids and this one is fantastic.  

Here are the links to this beautiful image as well as Julia's Etsy Shop.

Mermaid
Julia Spiri Etsy Shop

I used Copics to color her as well as to create the background.  And then I used  die to create the card (they are all one piece) as welll as the black background.  I was really inspired to use the colors I did because it seems like such a surreal moment in time.  

I used the following Copic colors:

B00, 02, 04
E00, 000
V01, 05,06, 09, 17, 28
RV02, 04, 17
Y01, 04, 08, 13
YG21, 23, 25
YR04, 07, 09

I used Little B Scallops Dies - Large One

I also used a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to create the dots on the image.  It was actually quite fun to do.  

I hope you feel some inspiration from todays card.  And remember anyone who is on a Design Team is able to enter into this cha…

Snowed In Trailer

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and special times with family and friends for those of you in the U.S. anyway.  And of course I hope all my friends had a great weekend.
Today I am sharing a card I created using this FAB new image from Artist Sandra Caldwell.  

This image can be found in Sandra's Etsy Shop and is called:  
Snowed In Trailer
This trailer reminds me of so many happy childhood memories of camping and enjoy the gorgeous outdoors.  Of course, we never did camp in the winter.  
To create this card I decided to do some paper-pieceing on the trailer.  I colored the top of the trailer with Copics.  I used the following Copic Colors:
C3, 5, 7 YG95, 97, 99
I used the Snow Marker to create the snow. I used a rub-on flower for in the window. And finally I used a White Gel Pen to create the snow flakes.
I hope you wil check out Sandra's Etsy Shop - there are so many amazing digital images to color and enjoy.  We would also love it if you joined our …

Bearly Tin and a Corn Basket

Hi Sweet Friends
Happy Monday!!  I hope your weekend was fabulous.
This is a double Design Team post today.  Our sweet leader Sandra, gave us Halloween week off which was such a fabulous surprise.  And so, there are two new images I get to share with you.  Here's the first one and this cutie is called: Bearly Tin #1132

I created the background using two stencils, one for the background and the other for the yellow brick road.  The Copic colors I used are:


(Colors Pending) - I really think my sweet Moxie ate the notes I had.  Yes, this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  

And my second image just makes me smile every time I look at it - well in complete honesty they both make me smile.  He's called:  Corn Basket #1146


I also used a stencil to create this background.  I used the following Copic Colors:

B00, 02, 04
C5
E15, 18, 19
Y02, 04, 08, 15
YG21, 23, 25

I absolutely love these images and I really hope they give you a smile too.

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.

It's a Bestie Kind of Day

Happy Monday (actually still Sunday here) Sweet Friends
Today I am sharing my DT card using this adorable image from Sherri Baldy called:
Bestie Image #037 on Etsy

It was so much fun to color her and create the background.  I colored her with Copics, used some old string I had in a drawer, some embellishments and a stencil.  
Our November Challenge starts today and we would love for you to join in this month.  There are some great prizes too!!  Here's the link to the November Challenge:

Knitty Kitty Family Reunion

Happy Happy Sunday Sweet Friends
Today I am sharing a DT card I made yesterday that was just a hoot to create.  I had so much fun and love how it turned out.  If you haven't seen Annabel's adorably sweet images of Kitty's you just might want to check them out.  The links are below:

I really wanted to do something silly with this card.  These images just make me smile and I think it kind of brings out the child in me.  I wanted to use different colors to color everything and yet have it all be coordinated as much as possible.  I used a brick stencil to create the background and wanted it to be light enough to help the images pop out more.  I created the asphalt using several different shades of gray.  The colors I used are: 

BG02, 05
C1, 3, 5
E31, 33
RV02, 04, 13, 14, 17
