Are you reading this???

Hello! It's been over a year since I posted on my blog. With the dissolution of Operation Write Home, I kind of lost my joy in creating cards but I am ready to get back into it.

I was just wondering who if anyone would see this if I began posting again. Please let me know and leave the address of your blog so I may return the favor.

Thank you :-)

MarkerPop! Challenge #89: ANYTHING GOES

Image
I am still a beginner when it comes to mad coloring skills but they say practice makes perfect right? I colored this cute little image from Art Impressions with Copic Sketch markers which are currently $5.24 each at MarkerPop! You can't beat that price! These ladies look like they are having tons of fun!  If you would like to play along in this challenge.....click HERE! Hope you have a crafty day! :-)

MarkerPop! Challenge #84: Anything Goes

Image
This week's challenge is to use Copic markers or any markers found in the MarkerPop! store. I received this beautiful angel by C.C. Designs and couldn't wait to bring her to life with my Copics!
It's not visible in this photo but I applied clear Wink of Stella glitter to the wings. Why is it that we only see our boo boos after we complete the project? Do you see it? I neglected to trim that tiny piece of cardstock from the left side of the cloud :-) She is still beautiful though.  There is still time to link up your project here.  Hope you're having a great day!

"Share Handmade Kindness" ~ Week 2

Image
Week 2 (November 9 – 15) will focus on sharing any kind of handmade kindness with anyone who works/serves in our community – anyone who provides a helpful service to us.
My project for #sharehandmadekindness goes to my postman/woman. They visit me 6 days a week, rain or shine, sleet or snow and I am thankful for their service. 

The tag is from My Favorite Things. The cute envelopes are from the Neat & Tangled "Just Hello" stamp set and the sentiment is part of the Hero Arts "Happy Birthday" stamp set. For more information about the Share Handmade Kindness challenge, click on the icon at the top of this post. :-)

"Share Handmade Kindness" with Jennifer McGuire ~ Week 1

Image
A MESSAGE FROM JENNIFER MCGUIRE ABOUT THIS CHALLENGEI think every one of us can agree that we love to create — cards, scrapbook pages, treats, and more. Making things by hand makes us happy. And when we share these creations with others, we also share that happiness. There’s nothing better! It’s a simple act of kindness that can brighten someone’s day and leave a lasting impression… and our world needs more kindness.
So, wouldn’t it be fun to encourage each other to turn the joy of creating into the kindness of giving? I hope you will join me here during the month of November for a “Share Handmade Kindness Challenge.” Each week throughout the month, we’ll challenge each other to share an act of handmade kindness with someone. Any act of kindness made with the hands from the heart counts! We’ll support each other in sharing these acts of handmade kindness with friends and family, children facing challenges, those who work in our communities (nurses, teachers, etc.), and com…

Lawnscaping Challenge #109 ~ Sparkle & Shine!

Image
After 108 challenges I finally decided to jump right in and participate! Lawn Fawn has so many wonderful products....it's tough figuring out which ones to use. The challenge was to use anything that makes your project "sparkle and shine"..........
The frame was cut using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die. The background was created with DCWV glitter paper. The planes, dots and sentiment are from the Lawn Fawn Flying By stamp set that I received from the lovely and talented Annette.  I stamped the planes with Lawn Fawn Fish Tank ink on the Lawn Fawn Beachside 6x6 paper pad. As you can see....the larger plane is doing some acrobatics (it's upside down) lol  The sweet birds and flowers are from the Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me Stamp/Die sets. I sponged some Lawn Fawn Wild Rose, Fake Tan & Mermaid ink onto white cardstock before I stamped the flower images.

I think it's still missing something where the hillside meets the sky so I will keep this open as a…
