Hi Everyone. Very quick post for you tonight. I wanted to share a card I made for Cards for Hospitalized kids - and another little hint for the blog candy. Let's start with the card. One of the things I have really come to love is coloring with pencils. For years I have been working with Copics and, don't get me wrong, I love coloring with my Copics. However, I discovered a young lady down in Oz who runs some online coloring classes. I decided to bite the bullet and take her pencil coloring class. Boy, oh! boy. Did that... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. What is better than a super sweet card? Oh, yeah! A super sweet card when it is accompanied by blog candy! Sweet. Candy. Get it? Of course you do! As blog candy is on offer, I decided to sweeten the deal with a handmade card by moi! I decided to pull out one of my new favorite stamps - Monique loves Macarons from Stamping Bella. I just love this image and I mixed it with a sentiment from Your Next Stamps. Not only did I color Miss Monique, but I also put her on a wobbler....... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a very timely challenge for us: I love the badge that Nance created and the neutral colored pumpkins are gorgeous with the other neutral elements. However, I decided to go for a standard pumpkin color for my card. I did try to emulate the feel of the wood and the leaves as well. It was a great excuse to open up my newly arrived Hero Arts card kit. I began by stamping the elements of the pumpkin and then added... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's my turn to host the Addicted to CAS Challenge this week and I have a code word for you that reflects my favorite subject :-) I didn't used to be this enchanted with florals, but Altenew's amazing stamps have really got me hooked and they really encourage me to practice my coloring and I have really developed a love of coloring with pencils. I hope that you will join us and play along this week. Our amazing sponsor STAMPlorations has a prize for the person chosen as the winner. - a $10 gift certificate! We... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and I have a color challenge for you. When I chose these colors, I had Spring in mind. Why? Well, that is because I am so NOT ready for fall or winter. The leaves might be turning and the days have been very cool... .but inside my head, I am still celebrating late Spring and early Summer. So, when I went to set up the Paper Players challenge for tonight, I was very surprised where the amazing design team had taken these colors. They went... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has chosen: I think all Mom's with school going children have this on their mind this weekend. It's been a long time since I have had to think about that and, because we always tend to think of younger kids as being the ones going back to school, I decided to go a different route. The last time I did back to school shopping was sending the beautiful C back to college and thought about creating a card for an older... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players Challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: I decided that I wanted to play with texture on the two background pieces and pulled out some Altenew woodgrain papers that I got quite a while ago. The one at the bottom is a much lighter weight than the vanilla one at the bottom. I know that the set I used is called Spring Daisy, but I thought it would work really well to color it with fall colors and the woodgrain seemed to... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a challenge that should be right up my alley! Now... this is a GREAT challenge and ... as I said...should have been right up my alley. But.. I have done so many cards with coloring recently - especially pencil coloring - that I decided to try and do something different. I pulled out some Holbein watercolor paints in a gorgeous shade of pink and paired that with some gold embossed Sketchy Flowers. I began by gold embossing the flowers onto... Continue reading

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I have a very quick post for you tonight. It's almost midnight and I realized I haven't typed up my post for the Paper Players challenge tomorrow! It's the awesome Sandy's turn to host our challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us Shhhhhhh... don't tell Sandy... but Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral are two of my least favorite SU colors. SU has created some amazing colors... but these two are WAY outside of my comfort zone. I do love, Pear Pizzazz though. So... in the spirit of challenges - I decided to... Continue reading

Thanks, Sandy :-) You know, I cannot remember which catalog this was in - I bought it for the bird image in the set, but think I have used the canoe one more. I think it was an easy set to overlook, but it is beautifully illustrated. As for the knees.... totally understand that - it's another reason we used native plants... they are much easier to care for and the rocks help with the weeds :-) hugs jaydee
