Birthday Box!

Good morning!  I am a day late (shocker, I know!) posting this.  I was up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog with this little number. My Silhouette was getting a bit dusty and I decided it was high time to dust it off and create with it again!

Who couldn't use a little birthday box?
I used Scrapbook Adhesives 1/2" double sided tape to add glitter underneath the birthday sentiment.  I also added a 1/2" strip and 1/4" strip along side the sentiment and sprinkled it with blue and clear glitter. I LOVE this stuff! So easy to use and adhere the glitter without the mess of glue. 
The flowers and leaves were cut using the Silhouette as well and were adhered using Dodz Medium Adhesive Dots
I also added a few sequins and rhinestones to finish off the box.  I used Dodz Micro Adhesive dots for those.

Now all I need is gift card or jewelry to go inside the box!
Thanks for stopping! 
Have a great day!

Pencils on Kraft Paper

Good morning! I have a card up on the SRM Blog using the new Heaven & Earth stamp set.  I stamped the clouds, mountains, and sentiment in Versamark ink and embossed it in white.  I filled in the mountain tops using a Reminisce white gel pen.  With colored pencils I gave the clouds and mountains color. I LOVE the look of colored pencils on kraft paper.
I wanted the sun to peek out from under the clouds, so I drew my own in.  I adhered a gold together sticker. under the word rejoice.  I tied twine to the top and glued a small gold heart to its center.   
Thank you so much for popping by today!!
Have a wonderful day!

My Left Over Penguin!

TGIF! I am heading out to Geneva, IL to shop and eat with my girlfriends. It has become a yearly tradition and one that I look forward to! As you know, I have been totally addicted to Suzy Plantamura's cute images! When I don't know what to create, I just pull one of these babies out and BAM! I have an instant card! I used Copics and a white gel pen. 


See that cute little penguin?  I had originally stamped him for yesterday's card, but then felt he was too big.  He was sitting on my desk while coloring this card, with his sad puppy dog penguin eyes, just begging to be used.  So I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't he look cute sitting inside the sand bucket?"  And yes, indeed he does! ;) 









Thank you for stopping by today! I will be back with this weekend with another penguin card. ( I figured why stop, while I'm on a roll?) 
Have a great Friday my friends!!

This Penguin Needs Sunscreen!

This little guy needs to watch out! His belly is getting a bit pink! 
I adore this stamp set from My Favorite Things!  It is called Penguins in Paradise.  He does look like he's living it up, doesn't he? ;)
Everything was colored with copics.  The "sand" portion was done with a floral stencil I had and various shades of yellow, orange, and pink Tim Holtz inks. 
I usually do your "normal" sand but wanted to jazz it up a bit.  I think it worked pretty well! 
I lined up the sentiment using my Mini Misti and then added some seed beads and sequins to finish off the card.   
No sun here today.  Storms rolled in last night and apparently they are here to stay throughout the day.
*sigh* Guess that just means I'll have to craft...... ;)
Have a great day!!

Life is Better in Flip Flops!

Hey there my friends! How is your summer so far?
Mine has been spent catching up with family and friends who seem to get somewhat neglected during the colder months of the year.  I love seeing everyone and being outside every chance I can!
I have been taking some images outside and thoroughly enjoying the process of coloring. 
Suzy Plantamura's images are perfect for this! 
And life really is better in Flip Flops! Unless you have plantar fasciitis! Then you had better wear good supportive shoes! LOL!
I spent all last week with this gal! Lots of swimming and of course a bit of "modeling."   
And thank you all for your interest in Rodan + Fields skin care and Lash Boost.  I would never recommend a product I didn't believe in.  And I can honestly say, these products have been a game changer for me.  You have absolutely nothing to lose by trying them.  They ALL come with a 60 day money back guarantee!

Love One Another....

Love One Another....
Sounds so simple.
Wouldn't it make the world a better place?  
I have to turn off the news lately.  It's sad and depressing. I hold my family a little tighter and try to be the light for other people.  Being kind costs nothing.

I am up on the SRM Blog today with a card that uses the "smooshing" technique and  a sentiment from SRM's Love One Another stamp set.  
I stamped the heart separately, colored it with Copics, fussy cut it, added glossy accents to it, and adhered it with foam tape.  I added enamel dots and pink twine to finish off the card. 
Have a wonderful day my friends!

Summer Ice Cream!

Good morning!  I have been spending a bit of time in my craft room this past week.  My van is still in the shop, so I've been stranded at home.  (Which might be good, because it forces me NOT to spend money! LOL) 
I adore Suzy Plantamura's image! When I am in a creative funk, I take one of these babies out and just enjoy the process of coloring. 
For this image I colored everything with Copic markers.  
I added glossy accents and some chunky glitter to the ice cream.  When it was dry I flicked a bit of black water color for interest. I adhered it to red card stock. I kept the card simple since I wanted the coloring to take center stage.  
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
