The Absolute Blessing of today

Hey Crafters!

What is everyone up to today? I am sitting here trying to figure out what I want for lunch, browsing the net, and listening to the Big Brother Live Feeds that are playing on hubby's computer next to me. Does anyone else watch Big Brother? It is one of my all time favorite shows!
Anyway, I picked up this little cutie yesterday from Mo's Digital Pencil and had to color her up. She is adorable and different, and that is a combo I like..lol
I had fun with her. I am not super stoked about how her black hair came out but it was one of the last things I colored and I was not going  to scrap the whole thing and start over. Hair really is my kryptonite. I just can not seem to get it down like some people seem to do so effortlessly. I guess the only thing to remedy that is lots of practice. I grabbed a few more Mo images yesterday so I think I may do a bit more coloring today in between eating lunch and laundry loads. I would love to see what you are up to. Leave a comment below and let me know... I will come over and check it out.

Over The Top!

It has been soooo long since I picked up a Copic, patterned paper, my ATG gun... you get the idea. I started my vacation, errr.....staycation yesterday and wanted to create!

I went looking through a few galleries online and then through my digi stamp collection to get inspiration. I landed on this super fun girl named Starla from Saturated Canary. 

I was a bit rusty after not coloring or anything for 6 months... I started this image 3 times before I went with it and got a result I was semi pleased with. I need to never go that long without creating again...seriously. lol 

She was totally screaming out to me to have cool funky and fun colors. Do you own her? If so I would love to see what you created with her. Please leave me a link to your creation in the comment section if you have played with her. 

I used the following on the card: 
Image & Sentiment- Starla by Saturated Canary
Paper- Seen & Noted by Pebbles
Die- Wonky Squares

Domo Arigato!! Mr. Roboto :)

I love to jot down ideas or thoughts on note pads or Post-it notes. I leave a trail of them all over the place..lol Well, I had one sitting on my desk forever telling me to make a Robot card with the sentiment" Domo Arigato"  which is Thank you very much in Japanese. I am sure that most of you are familiar with the 80's song by the band Styx.

I finally got around to wanting to create it. I went searching high and low ( or at least scouring digi sites..lol) for the perfect robot for my card. I found one that I thought was perfect, but the site was closed until after the new year fro Christmas break. :( ... Heart broken, I moved on until I found this one from Pink Cat Studio. He is quite a cutie,yes?

I used the following on the card: 

Image- Boy Robot by Pink Cat Studio ( digi) + a sentiment I created in PS Elements
Stampin up Very Vanilla for card base
Stampin up Classic Stampin' Pad - Taken with Teal for graphic paper piece
Stampin up Jumbo wheel- *not sure of the name*  for the bigger background piece
Pixie Stix Glitter Tube - Lemonade
Spellbinders Nestabilities- Wonky squares
Sizzix embossing folder - RETRO CIRCLES BY TIM HOLTZ
Paper - MME breeze, Adornit Carolee's creations- Seasons ( August cut apart),& Adornit Bobby and Betty- run
gear stickers I had in my stash and I do not remember what brand they are. 
Twine- Maya Road - saffron yellow
Copics used were C0, C1, C3, BG10, R20

I hope you enjoyed the card, and you can now enjoy this song to get it out of your head like I had too..lol

Just because I can...

Here is a super quick post about a card I made the other day while I was still on my Christmas vacation.
I found this woman that does You tube video's of cards she makes and I have been obsessed with her style since. I can watch her videos all day... I did one day and drove my hubby crazy! lol
This card was actually a case of one of hers. Her name is Kristina Werner, and you can find her at her blog Kwernerdesign blog. You should totally check her out..really.

Here is the card that I made from inspiration I got from watching her....

Card Deets:
 Amuse studio woodgrain background & Studio G Kolette Hall sentiment
 Christmas Red 
Pebbles- seen & noted & Cardstock by Stampin Up
Maya Road in Saffron Yellow 

Have a great rest of your weekend, 
Tracy S
