Good morning crafty friends!  If you are feeling a little under the weather right ow like we all are in my house, I have a little card today that will hopefully bring some smiles!

molly-closeupIt’s challenge time at Tiddly Inks (our last on of the year), and I decided to use one of Christy’s newest images – Holly Molly!  Isn’t she sweet with those little fairy wings? I coloured her up with Copics to match some Doodlebug paper, but besides her hair and the bow there actually want’t too much colouring on this one!  She’s a great one if you still have to make some last minute cards – like me!!

Oh, one last thing!  While there is sad news over on the challenge blog, there are also some details about a cute freebie!  So, while you head over to see all the inspiration and to enter the challenge, don’t forget to check for that too!

Well, I am off to make lunches!  Thanks for stopping by!

Feet jammies!

Both of my little girls have always loved “feet jammies” – you know, the pajamas that go all the way down and cover up your feet.  Now I have no idea how they can stand them – the idea of anything covering my feet at night makes me squirm (and oddly enough, anything covering the little ones feet any other time also makes her squirm).  But they love their feet jammies, and at 7 and 5, they both still get a pair every year at Christmas!

I think this one might be my favourite Christmas card this year!

Don’t forget that it is Fabulous Friday over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, so the design team has all sorts of inspiration to get you in the crafting spirit.  And our most current challenge is still open so you have a few days to get in on that as well!

Okay, my Fitbit is buzzing so I better get the rest of my day started!  Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Frosty Feeling!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  The frosty mornings have started, the neighborhood is filled with lights and most importantly, my birthday has passed.  So now, it’s time to get ready for my favourite time of the year…

…which includes pounding out some Christmas cards! Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog got me started this week!  The theme is Frosty Feeling, so think luscious ice, snow, wintery images, Icy cold colour themes, such a blue and silver….
warm-wishesfrontWhenever I think of “frosty”, one of my favourite Tiddly Inks images comes to mind –  Cocoa Wishes!  I love this cute image of the character Wryn.  I coloured her up to match some Christmas themed Doodlebug paper I have been working with lately called Sugarplums – it’s bright and cute and filled with the fun colours you know I like to use!  So while this card doesn’t really scream “Christmas”, I think it’s a cute change on the traditional colours!
So, I think I have another 12 or so cards to make!  I have to admit that I am usually a last minute Christmas card sender…what do you think?  Can I break with tradition this year and have them all on the way by December 10th?  Care to make a wager?
Thanks for stopping by!

Spooktacular fun!

oct-18-front

Okay, I know there are those of you out there that are not fans of Halloween – truth be told, I was not always one of them.  But since I have found my “cute in the spooks”, I have to admit that it is a pretty fun time of the year to be crafting!

oct-18-cuSo if the adorable Doodlebug paper wasn’t enough (smiling suckers???!!!  I have definitely become one), I teamed it up with one of my favourite Halloween stamps from Tiddly Inks called – Peekaboo Bugg! I pulled out my trusty Copics for this one, really focusing on trying to make that pumpkin glow (without a tea light inside).  It’s a breeze to colour up, and although i put her onto a card, how cute would this stamp be on some treat containers?!  Oh so many Halloween crafts – and so little time!

We are having a challenge over at the Tiddly Inks blog, and the theme is Halloween!  Make sure you pop on over to see the details and all the inspiration and then get crafty!  Even if you are not a Halloween fan, I guarantee that finding your “cute in the spooks” will have you smiling!  Come on try it, I dare you!
