Welcome Lillee- Grey

My friend had her first baby and named her Lillee-Grey. She loves elephants and ended up doing the baby room in elephants and pink and gray. I knew I wanted to make her a card and personalize it. I saw this super cute digi on Mo Manning's Digital Pencil Too site called,I forgot, and knew it was the one that I HAD to use to make her card. This elephant makes me smile. What a cutie. Isn't the sweetest little thing? I really had fun coloring this little one up. I will have to find another use for it soon. :)

I love you more than Coffee...

And that is saying a latte!

heheheeh I love this new to me image from Mo Manning over at Digital Pencil Too. I saw this beauty on their Fb page late one night and had to do a little 2am shopping from bed by phone. lol Sometimes I love technology and sometimes it can be dangerous to be able to purchase something that easily. :)
I am sure a lot of you can relate. I am love and I mean LOVE me some coffee and I know some other coffee lovers so this image was a must have for me. She was easy and so much fun to color. I really enjoyed myself. I am actually about to color her up again with a different color scheme. I can see me using this to make quite a few cards.

Doesn't she just make you want to smile? I know she does me. I love the sentiment that comes with her too. I am a sucker for punny sentiments.

Just Because...I miss your face!

I spent my Saturday cleaning up my craft space to make room to create. It is so good to be able to see the top of my desk and be able to get inky and scrappy. I am actually itching to color up another so it may just turn into a whole crafty weekend, Who needs to adult when you can just craft, am I right? lol 

This cutie is called " One of those Days" by Saturated Canary. Her stamps are my fav! She is closing shop at the end of August and that makes me sad. I have to buy up as much as I can before then. 

Off to get inky...have a great weekend!

You Make me Smile

I had so much fun coloring this awesome image and making this card. This is out of the comfort zone of my normal style. I really do not feel like I have a particular style, per say. But if I did this would be outside of Does that make sense? It has distressing, inking and glitter. What is not to love though, right? I like playing with different techniques and not always doing the same. I guess that is what art and creativity is all about.

This cute girl is a digi from Saturated Canary named Ellie Awesomesauce. And boy isn't she?

The image was colored with Copics. Please see below for a full detail of which ones:

 Skin: E04, E11,E21,E00,E000,R20
 Eyes: G94,TG03,YG01

 Vest: V95,V93,V91               
 Socks and Shoes: N5,N3,N1,N0,YG95,YG93,YG91

Each Day of Life is a precious gift from God.

Here is a card I did recently with the digi image- Heart Strings by Saturated Canary. TFL!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

A Cheerful Heart is Like Good Medicine~Proverbs 17:22

    Is anyone even still out here in blogland?.....

I have not colored or created a card since my last blog post. That seems so weird to me. I used to create almost daily. A sweet friend sent me a handmade card for my birthday and it inspired me to get at it again. I started off slow with this small House Mouse image. I am definitely rusty. I do not think I should have started off my first image in a year with trying to create a shiny black compact. I got frustrated with that. It was a total fail but I was determined to press in and complete it come what may. I am glad that I forced myself to do so. My hubby was a big help with encouraging me to do so as well. I had the creative itch- I scratched it.. and now I want to do more. That is how these things work I suppose. Just needed to get the ol' juices flowing.
 I am trying to set a goal to make a card for each coworker. I am hoping that will keep me moving forward. It sure was good to have inky fingers again and play with pretty paper!

I think I am going to color up another image now. Pray all goes

My Perfect Day

I think being by the ocean always turns out to be my perfect day. Something about it just always makes me feel good, even if the sun isn't shining. Yesterday was a gorgeous and I mean GORGEOUS day out. Hubby and I decided to drive to Galveston Island to have a dinner date. The island was all a buzz with surfers, swimmers, and couples walking down the beach hand in hand. We both love to people watch and it just made me smile to see so many people carefree and having fun. 

Lately my hubby has been obsessed with Hawaiian shirts and all that he can find- the crazier the better. We found an amazingly cheap thrift store and he goes nuts each time we go and he can find the shirts. This thrift store is never more than $1.75 and goes down a quarter each day until Wednesday when it hits a quarter. Then it closes early and restocks for the $1.75 Thursday. You can't beat those prices. 

Anyhow... I tell you all this to get to the point: Both of those things inspired this card. lol It is so funny to me where my inspiration comes from. 

From where did your latest inspiration come?
