Ballet Fairy

Happy Happy Thursday My Dear Sweet Friends

I hope your week has been going fabulously!

I have some wonderful and exciting news to share today.  I am now on the Scrapper's Delight Design Team.  I am on the Thrifty Thursday Team - WooHoo!!  I am thrilled and over-joyed and thank you so much Janice for such a wonderful opportunity.  It means so much to me.  And this is my first project which is a greeting card using this fabulous image called "Ballet Fairy."  


This adorable ballet fairy is part of Thrifty Thursday's at Scrapper's Delight which means that she and some other adorable images are only a $1.00 for a limited time.  The link above takes you to Janice's Store.

It was love at first sight with this little cutie.  I must confess there is one thing I always do first and that is add some color to the lips.  It's almost an obsession.  I am not sure why but it might be due to  always seeing mom put her lipstick first. Maybe I am a little strange but it's fun and just part of who I am and it makes me smile.  LOL

I then added a light base color to her wings and moved on to her hair.

The Copic colors I used are for this card are:

BV11, 13
E000, 00, 11, 31, 33, 35
R81, 83, 85
Y08
YG21, 23, 25

I do a lot of paper-piecing/fussy cutting and fortunately she was easy to cut out.  I printed another image of her onto the multi-tone cardstock and glued the colored image on top.  I wanted to give a festive look and added the two rows of ribbon.  She was a joy and delight to color.

 I hope you will check out the Scrapper's Delight store.  There are so many amazing images to color as well as the Thrifty Thursday $1.00 images.  The link is above.

Have a great rest of your week.

Golf TIme

Happy Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing a fabulous new image from Sandra Caldwell owner of BabyCakes Digis and Designs on Etsy.  


This image is called:  Golfing Hippo 803

I really love any image that has anything to do with golf.  I think it's because I have so many happy memories of spending time with my dad on the golf course.  There were a couple of times I even played with him and even shot a birdie on one of the holes.  No actual birds were injured in this game.  LOL!!  Dad was so excited and proud.that he bragged to all his golf friends in the clubhouse.  I was even given a soda "on the house."  It was such a fabulous day!!  My dad even had a hat and shirt similar to this one.  

I absolutely love a great hippo image and this one is the by far the cutest hippo golfer I have ever seen.  I colored him with Copic's and made him into a card.  I hope he makes you smiles as much as he does me.

I also hope you will check out Sandra's Etsy Shop where you can see all her fabulous images.  You won't be disappointed.  They really are a joy to color!!!

You can also join Sandra's Facebook page - it's a great place to handout.
