Full Moon.

Good morning everyone! I have been so busy at work and just can't wait to get home so I can color LOL I have a couple of Guest Designer spots coming up, so I have been working on those items. I wanted to get this one finshed last night though. I'm off to work soon.. it is foggy outside!  Have a great day everyone!!

Here is my ATC:

This is Halloween Mouse On A Broom from Gerda Steiner. I created the sky background and the moon and popped this adorable little witchy mouse on top of the moon. I colored the image with Copic Markers and only popped the arm, foot and robe on this side of the broom. I added some wink of Stella gold to the stars and buckle and clear to the robe.

Halloween Dragon ATC*

Good evening everyone! I was able to get a bit done this morning.. Then I took Bailey to her Lacrosse game. She was goalie for the second half of the game. At the half it was them 4 and the other team 2. The game ended at them 7 and the other team 2. Bailey did not let them score on her! She did great :)  She is rusty in places and she is ready to get back to work, but she did well! When we got home, Michael rang so I went and picked him up and took him to the Urgent Care. The doctor cut away the ingrown toenail and I went and picked up some antibiotics for him. When we came home I told him to go soak in the bathtub in the hottest water he could stand. I've given him some Neosporin and Band-aids as well so he can cover it. I'm hoping it will heal right and he won't end up with another one. He has school tomorrow, so I told him that he needs to cover it when he goes to school and then when he gets home take everything off and let it have some air until he goes to bed. He doesn't work tomorrow, so that is a good thing.

That was it ... Family stuff and a bit of crafting! Now I'm just exhausted and I can't believe I have to go back to work already! I'm hoping I can get a little bit more coloring done tonight. We will see! Here is my ATC I finished:

This is Frost Dragon from Rick St. Dennis. I've colored this with Copic Markers. I did not do any layering with this image. I've added Wink of Stella clear on the jack-o-lantern and the dragon. I've used all scrap papers and did a bit of distressing to the two rectangle patterned paper pieces. The web ribbon was added and one black bling. I also did some ink on the kraft base. Pretty simple ATC!

Copic Colors Used:
  • Pumpkin: YR02, YR04, YR07, W5
  • Stem: E44, E47
  • Leaf: YG21, YG25, YG67

Digital Deedee's!.

Good morning everyone! I wanted to do a digital creation today before I headed off with my daughter to her Lacrosse game. I'm thinking I need to go back in and create it a bit bigger so I can put it on my desktop!! I love Autumn!!

Here it is:

I used some background that I picked up years and years ago. The elephant and the leaves and the sentiment are all from Deedee's Digi's. I love this set. The elephant is adorable!! I added the little pumpkin vines on the bottom. I think this would be great on my desktop!!  :)  Have a great day everyone!!

Pumpkin Patch*

Then I'm headed to bed :) I really enjoyed being on all my Design Teams, but I am really enjoying just crafting whatever I want to create :)  I have a bunch of challenges I'm trying to focus on. I'm not going to be able to complete all of them I want this month, but I'm having fun doing what I can!! And not stressing :) 

Here is my second card I finished today:

This is using Pumpkin Patch Girl Set that is this month's Digi of the Month at From The Heart. I just love her images! This little one is ADORABLE! I colored her with Copic Markers and I popped up that pumpkin she is holding. I stamped the Happy Fall around her. The papers are all scraps. I inked all of the edges with black ink. I cut some leaves and the square around the image with my My Favorite Things dies, inked the edges of those leaves and added some glitter to each one all color coordinated.

Autumn Splendor.

Hi Everyone!  It has been a nice day. I don't think I've left the house today. I got two cards completed. My oldest daughter came for a visit. She hung out with her sister and brother. That is always nice. I love when she comes and hangs out with them. It was a good, happy, crafty day :)  I'm hoping for another of pretty much the same tomorrow :)

Here is my card:

This is Autumn Fantasy from Ching-Chou Kuik. I just love this image! I colored her with Copic Markers. I decided to try something new and I used watercolors for the background. That was kind of fun! What else... I did a small bit of layering. I added some Wink of Stella clear to her eyes, the cats's eyes and wings and the leaves at the top. I did some distressing on the patterned paper. I inked all of the edges. I used an embossing folder on kraft and then inked those leaves a bit with Sepia. I also added some stitching around that layer. I added some ribbon and some dew drops. The You're Special stamp is Paper Smooches. On the inside I used a My Favorite Things rectangle die on the patterned paper and inked all the papers.

Fall Crate*

Good evening everyone! Time to start the weekend. The time off sure goes quickly! I'm hoping to just craft tomorrow and Sunday. We will see how that goes!! :)

Here is something a bit different today. I decided to make a crate:

For my little crate I have used Maggie's Apples from Imagine That!. I just love her :)  I've colored her with my Copic Markers and added a bit of layering. I've cut her with a circle and the scalloped circle is behind her. They are both Spellbinder Die Cuts. The sentiment was part of this wonderful set and that was cut using a My Favorite Things die. The circle and sentiment were inked with sepia as was the entire crate. I've used all scrap patterned papers on this creation and a bunch of kraft to cut the actual crate pieces with my Cameo. I added a little bit of twine to the tag on the one side. There are a couple of vine dies that are on the side, but I can't remember who I got those from.

Copic Markers Used:

  • Cow: R00, N0, N1, N3

Attitude ATC!*

Evening everyone! It has been a nice couple of days off. We never did make it to the movies. There just isn't anything that is screaming at us to see in the theater. So, we decided to skip that. We did go bowling yesterday though. And we spent more money than I thought; Bowling is Expensive! But we had so much fun. It has been forever since I bowled. Before my surgery, when I was at my heaviest, I wouldn't have been there. So, to be able to go out and bowl and have fun doing it was a blast! We played four games and I beat Kevin 3 out of 4! Whoop!! LOL

Today, we were going to see Ant Man, but decided that it just wasn't one of those movies that we had to see. We can wait for it to come out. So, we headed to Goodwill and bought a couple of King sized sheets and a couch for downstairs and some new stoneware plates. Then we came home and I've been crafting, he has been napping, playing games and we have been watching MotoGP Practice too. It was a rainy day today and getting a bit cooler. It was a great day!!

Alright.. on to why I'm posting. Here is an ATC I completed today:

This is Misha Fay from Smeared Ink. Isn't she great?! I love her! I colored her with Copic Markers and a little bit of At You Spica markers. I colored the roses and the heart with red and the necklace choker and spikes on the headband with silver. This is all black and white scrap papers. I inked the white with black ink. I added a couple of sequins, a couple of black pearls and some purple gems. I also added the black and white twine and the two little charms.  The sentiment I created. I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to her eyes to give them a bit of sparkle! Love those alien eyes!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: BG90, BG93, BG96, R20
  • Hair: V000, V01, V04, V06, V09

Purple Aurora Birthday*

Good morning everyone!! I am off until Monday!!  Yippee!!  I'm hoping to go to the movies with Kevin either today or tomorrow. We will see how that works out. Yesterday was a full day of work and I brought some work home as well. I need to finish up a bit today and then put it away until Monday! What I really want to do is color! And I need to do a card with some embroidery on it. That will be a challenge!  Alright.. enough of me :)  On to the card for today:

For this card I've used Aurora Gift from The East Wind. She is colored with Copic Markers and a small amount of layering was done. The flower background was cut using a My Favorite Things die. The inside rectangle is also a My Favorite Thing die and I inked a bit of purple around the edge. I added a bit of purple lace and then the sparkle fiber on top of it. I made a little pompom with the fiber and added the gem on top of it. The ribbon on the gift has some clear Wink of Stella on it.  On the inside I added some additional lace and sparkle fiber.
