Hello! Yes I am finally back. It's been quite some time but I am happy to say, my leg is healing up very nicely. Doctor seems more than pleased, so, so am I!

Below is a card my youngest asked me to make for her to send to a pen pal in Bulgaria. They play an online game and chat together. They both like penguines and she is a Thor fan and he is a Batman fan. So to some of you this card will make absolutely no sense. To them it will be perfect. She's coming by today to pick it up. I wanted to get it posted before she comes. That's why I didn't get the photos all tidied up before posting. 
The sentiment reads: save santa a naughty.
 I printed 4 of the superhero images and cut pieces for a 3-d effect. The sentiment reads : wishes for a Christmas that's Super!
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. Ours was very nice. My sister came and brought my parents and all of their dogs. I only got a picture of my sister's Rat Terriers, Gracie and George.

Now to get to my Christmas card list.

Please take time to enjoy the season that is upon us. Don't get caught up in the hustle and the bustle of it all. Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season.

My oh my

I know I have been MIA for quite a while. Well it's due to some health issues that require me to sit with my leg elevated.
I miss making cards and miss all my crafty friends. I will be back as soon as I possibly can.

Thanks for noticing me.

Remembering the fallen on 09-11. God bless.

Colour Me...!

Colour Me....! #32 - Monochromatic Pistachio Pudding. I have a friend who just loss her mom so this card is for Monica in Louisiana. I hope it brings her some comfort in her time of sorrow.
For the face of my card, I inked up a square acrylic block with Pistachio Pudding ink. Then stamped that down onto Whisper White cs. Then using Basic Gray ink I stamped the largest stamp from SU set Just Believe. With Sympathy is also from SU. The set is Loving Thoughts. I used the Tulip Border EF from SU. SU grosgrain ribbon.
 I stamped one of my favorite sentiment inside from Sweet & Sassy Stamps set #1073 His Eye is on the Sparrow.
It reads; "When Jesus is my portion a constant friend is He. His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watched over me." I also stamped the large floral stamp from SU set My Friend.

Here's a beautiful little FREE Birdie image from the AMAZINGLY, ARTISTICLY talented Susanne Rose! When I saw a mixed media project she'd created using this little one I knew I had to have her too! So Susanne sent me HERE to download her for FREE!

Now once I had that little file on my computer, I couldn't wait to get out my Prisma Color Pencils and start coloring. It's an easy image to color and I "flew" through the process!

Today I am featuring this little cutie on my creation for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #148. Enjoy!

Just in case you'd like to play along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made below is the sketch.

JFF KarleighSueDigi

My adorable grandson, Zackary was here last week for an entire WEEK! We had such a great visit. I miss him so much. He is growing up so fast. I can't believe he's only 10 and will be in 5th grade in just a couple of weeks! My how time flies!
He's a fabulous kid though. He loves God, and family. Is very giving of himself and his time. Great all around kiddoe, but I'm his Nana so I might be a little biased. :-)

Here he is with my dog, Seamus. They love each other too!

So now to my card for today. I've been on this Copics craze lately. I think everyone is. But for me, I want to learn how to color beautiful hair. Alas, my practices are not making perfect. Soo... I color hairless images. LOL Below is an owl from Karleigh Sue Digis on Etsy. The image is colored with a combo of Copics and Spectrum Noir. I added some Martha Stewart glitter glue (it was a birthday gift from my friend, Nancy).

The green flower was a piece of tuille ribbon I gathered up and shaped into a flower. Added a little fuschia button sticker and some punched branches from my Stampin' Up! Build a Bird punch. She's done!

Hope you enjoy looking. If I can get them all downloaded I have more colored images to share. Later!

Meet Rachel. She's a Sugar Nellies digital image I purchased at

Rachel has been printed on XpressIt paper and colored with Copic markers. I think her face and clothes turned out pretty good but I still need some practice with hair.

Play Date with Deb 6-12

I recently had another play date with my gal pal Deb and below are the cards we made. The 1st one below is a stamp set from Art Impressions of an English Cottage - L3496. Deb used my stamps to stamp the scenes. Then we each colored them differently using the same color palette. This one is mine.

The card below was stamped using the Stampin' Up! Retired Hostess set Simply Sketched . I stamped in Ranger Archival Black then colored with Copic markers. Using framelits from Stampin' Up! cut the image and then a matte from dsp. Added from ribbon and glittery chipboard.

For the card below, Deb had some dsp and a die cut swirly corner. I stamps more swirls with versa mark and used some embossing powder in purple to match. Stamped the little dragonfly and popped him up with dimensionals. Added some rhinestones. 

We always have great fun on our play dates. Looking forwatd to our next time together.

There's a NEW challenge blog out there! It's called The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog. They are starting off with a Guest Designer Search. For my inspiration I chose the two cards on the right. It's quirky and I think it's FUN. 


So, a funny thing happened last night AFTER I created this card. I went back to The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog to upload my card and realized I didn't use any die cuts. DUH! It isn't called "THE CUTTING EDGE" for no good reason. Hahaha! So this morning I got up and stamped and die cut these sweet little butterflies from Hero Arts.

 If you decide to play along you have to use the image below as inspiration. And remember to add your die cuts!

I'm sooo super duper excited! I am a Guest Designer on Color Throw Down. I just have to say, this is my most favorite challenge to participate in! Colors move me! I don't always get it exactly right but when I do I get pretty pleased with myself. I have to admit though, some of the color combos have just not been my cup of tea and so I sat those challenges out. But this week's colors are FABBY!
So without further adue here is the color combo for this week's Color Throw Down #296.

Don't you agree? FABBY right! Looks just like ice cream to me!

I'd like to Thank the Peeps @ Color Throw Down for this honor!
