Flora Fairy

Another very cool image from StampArt Design by Kathryne and can be found here.  And guess what!  When you buy the original image, you get three digitals for the price of one!!!  So for a dollar each, how can you go wrong?    I colored her with my Copics and then put tons of glitter on her wings.  I used a Tim Holtz Mover and Shaker die on the bottom after I grunged it up a bit with some Memento inks on the edges.  The butterfly is from Memory Box.  The bling is Twinkle Goosebumps and the paper is Year-O-Graphy Simple Stories.

Well summer is in full swing here in Nebraska.  Hot and humid.  But it sure beats winter cold, ice and snow!  I am awaiting a book from the library so have not started a new one but am catching up on my magazines.  Great time to sit and read to beat the heat!

Until next time, Happy trails to you...

Baby Teddy and the Butterfly

This cute little teddy bear has found a new friend.  He is a Whimsy digital image and can be found right here. If you buy him, you also get another image for free.  Quite a bonus!   I colored him with my Copics and then took the blender pen and made dots all over his body to make it look furrier.  It is hard to see in the picture though.  I used a Nestability to frame it and then two Memory Box dies to make a large butterfly for the corner.  I think it would make a great baby card, or birthday card or even a nice thinking of you card.  

Until next time, happy trails to you....

I made this card for my husband for Father's Day.  I used a Whimsy digital image that you can find here called Charlie.  It also comes with two bonus sentiments that I didn't use for this card.  I colored it with m y Copic markers and added a word band by Tim Holtz.  That is it!  Easy Peasy!

Until next time, Happy trails to you....

Russian Nesting Dolls

Remember getting Russian Nesting Dolls or nesting boxes?  Well Natalie Seaton of Moon Cookie at Whimsy Designs made this adorable image.  After printing her out, I then stamped a wood look stamp from Papertrey Ink all over her to make it look like wood.   Then I colored over that with my Copics.  I thought she came out cute.  I used an embossing folder for the background and need to add my sentiment yet.  Pretty plain but wanted to show off this cute image.  Oh!  And I just noticed that she is half price so if interested grab her up quickly!  I Love a good sale :)

Until next time...
Happy trails to you!

A Walk With A Friend

Today I wanted to show an older digital image I have and love.  It is from Sarah Kay and I colored her with Copics.  I used a Nestabilitie to cut her out and then realized it was too large to fit on any card I had so I cut two more Nesties just like it and glued the first two together and then scored the back one about an inch and a half down and attached it at the top to make my own card.  Make sense?  I didn't add any embellishments to it at all and let the image shine.  

Until next time, Happy trails to you...

Whimsy Challenge

So the Whimsy challenge this month was to do a shaped card.  I found this cute teacup here and thought it would make a cute invitation for a coffee or tea party.  I also used digital paper that I found here.  So I attached the tag to a pull up invitation which is inside the teacup.  Other than the normal circle shaped cards, this is the first real shaped card I have made.  It was fun to do.  I strongly suggest you try one just to say you did it!  I was dreading making one at first thinking I couldn't do one but while not as great as many I have seen, it made me know that I could do one and will try more in the future.

Until next time, happy trails to you!
