Whimsy Challenge Time

Isn't this little girl cute?  She is Alanna by Kathryne and you can purchase her right here.  You also get three bonus files with it.  Oh I had so much fun coloring her up.  I added Stickles around the image, don't know if you can see it or not.  And after I posted this picture I added  a button to each of the mitten cuffs.  The circle image is one of the bonus images that comes with it.    
Hop on over to whimsyinspires.blogspot.com and play along fora chance to win some goodies!
Until next time, happy trails to you

Snowman Hold My Heart

Another snowman card!  I love making snowman cards - not the real deal, too cold.  I will settle for the ones I can make inside the house!  This cutie is another one of Crissy's Digi's at Whimsy Stamps.  I colored him up with my Copics and remembered to save the colors to show you!  The snowman's jacket looks green in the picture but it is yellow in real life.   In fact all of the colors are a little skewed in the picture.  It is yellows and peaches as you can see from my colors in the glass here.  I added an icicle from Impression Obsession, a snowflake from Memory Box and  made both out of glittery paper. The background blue snowflake paper is quite old and is by Creative Imaginations.

Until next time...  Happy trails to you!

Fall is when nature turns to gold

This pretty fall image is from Whimsy Stamps.   The artist is none other than the talented Kathryne and it comes with some bonus stamps which is where the sentiment came from.  I colored it up with my Copics and cut it out with my Nestabilities Leaves.  It is all mounted on some beautiful fall paper.    Here in Nebraska fall is definitely here.  There is big nip in the air but until this week it has been very warm.  So we are still seeing flowers and our leaves are turning beautiful colors.

So until next time, happy trails to you...

The Infant King

It is getting closer and closer to Christmas so thought I would start on my cards, finally.  The pretty image is a Whimsy image by Crissy called The Infant King and can be found here.  She has so many nice images to color.  The weather here is looking more and more like fall.  The last few days have been cloudy and today is very chilly and windy as well.  So it was time to get out the Christmas stuff, turn on the Christmas music and play.  I love the expressions on the animals and the angel.  Crissy did a wonderful job designing this.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Shabby Chic Challenge

When Whimsy suggested a shabby chic challenge, I thought it would be fun and then I thought, what defines shabby chic?  I decided I really didn't know.  I distressed the edges, and I added some lace and shabby blue frantage.  Probably needed a doily too but now is too late to think of that.  Anyway, this adorable snowman is from the brand new digital release from Crissy's Digis at Whimsy.  Now you can play along by popping on over to the Challenge and entering your creation!  I was out of town so could not participate in the blog hop yesterday but you really need to check out the adorable images this month! This little snowman and his friend the bird, are so much cuter when it is 70 degrees outside that when it is zero!  So that is it for me today, I am going to go sit on the deck, read a book and enjoy this nice day.

Until next time, Happy trails to you...
