Enjoy your day!

Of course, if I have a book in hand I can always enjoy my day!

Come join us at Little Miss Muffet Stamps for a new challenge, the theme is to Use a Favorite LMMS image, well I love anything that is whimsical and anything that is fairytalish/fantasy themed, and of course anything to do with books.

  I used Polka Dot Pals Lirienne image for my card and made the inside a pocket for a gift card to a book store.  I just got a gift card to Barnes & Noble and bought a book last night, so I know for my book loving friends, this card will be perfect!

Winter Mae

I'd like to share my last Christmas card this year....sounds weird saying that!  I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.  I know that I am ready to put 2015 down in the history books and look forward to a hopefully better 2016! 

 I've used Some Odd Girl's Winter Mae image for this card.  The base is made using scalloped square die from C.C. Designs, the square and rectangle dies are also from C.C Designs,  and used some scrap paper I've had for several years.  I colored Mae up with my copics and it's hard to tell but the pearls in the middle of the snowflakes are a deep red that I changed the color using my R89 copic marker.  I finished it off with a little twine and rub on sentiment.    

I just love Some Odd Girl images, you can find Winter Mae HERE.  They are so fun to color and always add the perfect image to my cards and projects!

I'd like to share a couple of tags I made using the fox and santa hat from the Christmas Carolers stamp & die set you can find at Paperie Ink.  The tag and to/from words are a tag die set from Sugar Pea Designs and the snow are dies from Lawn Fawn called Stitched Hillside Borders.  The Christmas tree and snowflakes are stamps from Sugar Pea Designs Sweet Treats set.

These look so cute on a package and are fairly fast to put together.  Hope you come check us out at

Nothing is Impossible!

I just love the little elephants in the Paperie Ink Tons of Thoughts stamp set, and used this little cute one for a project life page that will document my grandbaby's birth at two months premature and the fight be healthy and strong, I think the sentiment is perfect for the pictures that I will be using!

I love the little accent stamps, this pinwheel is so cute!

Christmas Train

Christmas is almost here and this is the only Christmas decor that I have out, except for the one little flower bunch to the right.  I have no desire to decorate and honestly don't have the space now that my table that once held my little 4' tree now has a tv on it.  So, this little 4x4 wooden block with this adorable Christmas/Winter train will be my only decor for the year.

I sized the images bigger so they would fit on the wooden block and I colored using copics.  I added a little dimension on the wheels with enamel accents and used some distress ink in Tumbled Glass around the edges. I used the Linking Train Winter and the Linking Train Winter Cars these are so fun to play with!

Come see us over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and join us with our new challenge of HOLIDAY CHEER     there are tons of new, cute, fun, adorable images in the store and you've got two weeks to join our challenge, we would love to see what you create!!

Season's Greetings!

Hey all, happy Saturday to ya!  I'm sharing my card  using the Christmas Carolers stamp and die set from Paperie Ink.  I created this little winter woodsy gathering scene by using the Birch Tree stencil from C.C. Designs and some off white acrylic paint.  Once it was dry, I used a couple lighter brown copics to add the detail and shading to the trees.  The sentiment is also from C.C Designs Big Christmas Wishes set. 

What I really love is how versatile this stamp set is, you can mix and match all the little critters and I think I used them all, there is one more hedgehog that faces the other way and lots of accessory stamps.  You can check out the stamp set at  Paperie Ink and see all the inspiration from the DT and the other stamp sets available!

Luna Bitterfrost Snowman

Anyone up for a little goth with their snowman??!!  I love it, Luna Bitterfrost is just dark enough and cute enough to offset all the cutesy Christmas stuff going on....not that there is anything wrong with that, but this appeals to my little bit of a darker side.   I imagine Luna as an introvert who just wants to hang with her little snow buddy and not be bothered by all the Christmas carols and well wishers, not that she's an outcast, she just likes her solitude! I can relate!!

My little Elf on a Shelf

I don't do the Elf on the Shelf, but since this cutie made her way onto a card and the card is on my shelf....well, that works for my version of Elf on the Shelf!!  I don't have littles at home and not sure if I did I would do the Elf thing anyway cuz I'm really not consistent and I'm sure the Elf would be left and forgotten in the same place day after day.....and the kids would probably feel jaded and that their elf was lazy and unmotivated...that would be the excuse I would give them anyway! ;)

I based on card on the sketch below and would like to enter the following challenges:

Tiddly Inks baby girl

I made this card for my daughter's friends baby shower and think this is just such a cute, cuddly little image!  I used various scrap paper,  die cuts from My Favorite Things, prima flowers, lace, gumdrops (enamel dots) from Your Next Stamp.  
I colored with copics and added white hightlights with my white opaque marker from Recollections.

Love you-Flyin High!!

Happy Weekend!! I hope you all are having a great day!  
I'm up today on the Paperie Ink blog with this card.  I've used all the images from the Flyin' High stamp set, aren't these images so cute!! I just love the different images, accessory stamps and clean cutting matching dies!  The bigger clouds were from a single stamp from my stash.

I've colored all the images with copics and kept to a softer color scheme this time, I just love the little airplane and how cute with the banner....there are several words that fit in the banner and would be perfect for all occasions, the cityscape is cute too and look at the hat and bow on the bear and bunny....oh my goodness, the cuteness is too much!
Please head over and check out the inspiration on the Paperie Ink blog, have a great day!!
