Day 4 Growing In Unity With Lizzie Girl (Showered With Love)

Lizzie Girl--Day 4 GIU


The week always goes by way too fast.  You want to do so many more cards but time doesn’t allow you to finish as many as you want.  Today’s card is using Lizzie Girl (Showered With Love).  Isn’t she so cute?  I used Unity’s Sketch #15.




I used Copics E-11, E-15, E-17, E-19, and E-50.  I also used multiple Derwent Inktense color pencils.  For the buttons I put Icicle Sticles and for the rain I used Baby Blue Liquid Pearls.  I stamped the image on Debbie Mumm Paper.  The umbrella paper is part of the Spring Brights Collection Paper.  I used washi tape, ribbon, and a button from my stash.

I will have a very special card tomorrow.

Don’t forget that if you comment every day this week you get a chance to win 2 Unity Itty Bitty Stamps!

Also if you comment every day I am throwing in another 2 chances to win a stamp from me.  I have 2 stamps that I have bought doubles of and I am going to send to send 1 each to 2 very blessed commenters!  Thanks for visiting my blog this week.  I would love it if you would follow me but that isn’t a necessity to win.



Challenge #15 Week 3 at Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blogspot

This month at CCCB for Challenge #15 our theme has been Fat Pages/ATCs.  Nikki at Limited Runs was gracious enough to sponsor us and I chose Ladybug Swirl Cupcake for making my ATC.  I had some cupcake paper for the bg.  I wanted to try to make the whipped cream like clouds with the swirls that the ladybugs would make in flight.  I wanted the icing to be blue like the sky and the liner to be green like grass since it had flowers on it.  I added the shamrock, some ladybugs, and some Stickles.  There is still a little over 14 days to enter and we don’t have very many entries.  You have a great chance of winning.  All of us at CCCB would love to have at least 100 more entries.  Everyone can make a fat page or an ATC.  I am wishing you a crafty day, happiness, blessings, and inspiration.  Ciao…

Alice In The Garden of Live Flowers



At 613 Avenue Create this week Rick St. Dennis has done us the honor of sponsoring us.  If you can’t tell, I had a great time coloring this digital stamp.  The name of it is Alice In The Garden of Live Flowers.  The papers I used are from an Etsy store called Romantic Letters.  The paper is called Marbled digital paper pack N5.  I found the rose swirl on Word.  Since the flowers are live I wanted to add the eyes.  I had seen that somewhere as well.  I also saw a tutorial on doing eyes online and I am pretty happy on how they turned out.  I hope you are inspired.  I truly love the look the marbled paper gives.  Alice In Wonderland did have a bunch of strange things in the background.  Thank you for dropping by.  Please Stay Crafty, Be Inspired, Be Happy, and Be Blessed…Ciao…

Lady Anne’s Challenges

Lady Anne changed her challenges the majority of her challenges to run month to month.  The exceptions will be the Friday challenge hosted by my friend and sister, Berni and the Christmas Challenge.  This month Lady Anne has started a new challenge.  This challenge will have different aspects each month.  Sometimes it may be to follow a sketch, sometimes a fat page, sometimes an ATC.  It will vary. This month she did a sketch.  I didn’t see it until this morning so I am not on the challenge page but I did color an image.  The sponsor for the new challenge for Lady Anne’s Challenge this month was Daisy Doodles.  The image I used is “A Jug Full of Spring”.

A Jug Full of Spring--Daisy Doodles--Lady Anne's Challenges

The wording is from Create With TLC using “Daffodils Vintage Set”.  I wish to thank Jules.  This is a gorgeous image and it was so fun to color.  The next challenge is sponsored by Nana Vic.  I used Nana Vic’s “Sunday’s Hat” and “Roses on Lattice”.  I wish to thank Vickie as well.  She is more than generous to sponsor us every month at Lady Anne’s.  Here is the result:


The last of Lady Anne’s Challenges beginning today is Stamp Anything Goes sponsored by Stamp -N- Doodle.  My image is “Isn’t He Dreamy”.  Again I used word art from Create With TLC called “Friends Stand Shoulder to Shoulder”.  I would like to thank Lynne for sponsoring Lady Anne’s Stamp Anything Goes.  Here is my card:

What A Dream--LadyAnne'sChallengeStampAnythingGoes

Please stop by and enter Lady Anne’s Challenges and please visit the many generous sponsors that keep us going.  Without sponsors, challenges cannot keep going and without supporters, sponsors cannot keep their businesses going.  I have shown you three cards that were so fun to do and none of them were expensive to do.  Without you stopping by to visit my blog then my DT work and write-ups wouldn’t make much sense and I try to return the favor to each of you as well.  If I have missed your blog lately it is because we are going through a big change in our lives. We are selling our house and buying another.  A big move is very time consuming.  I had company for a week and we try to spend time with our grandchildren as much as we can, even more now that we are moving away from them.  As always Be Crafty, Be Inspired, Be Happy, and Be Blessed…Ciao…

I’m Late, I’m Late

EuroGirlSpring - RSD


At The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blogspot Challenge #14, Week 3, we are being sponsored by Rick St. Dennis.  The theme for March is green or St. Patrick’s Day.  This is Euro Spring Girl from Rick St. Dennis but she is no longer in Rick’s Etsy shop.  This was posted last Wednesday on my birthday and I got the other post out.  We are selling a house and buying a house six hours away.  I also had a very good friend fly in for my birthday and she is here until tomorrow so I haven’t been doing any crafting and had the one post set to go off automatically but forgot this one.  I apologize to everyone:  the sponsor, my fellow DT, my followers, and anyone else I owe an apology to.  The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blogspot has changed their rules so that you can enter three times during the month.  The challenge runs until Midnight March 31.  They always have bunches of inspiration.  So stay crafty my Friends, be inspired, be happy, and Be Blessed…Ciao…

613 Avenue Create Challenge #12 — Rick St. Dennis



Come join us at 613 Avenue Create for Challenge #12 – Anything Goes.  Rick St. Dennis is our sponsor this week.  I used Spring Goddess which you can buy if you click on “Spring Goddess“.  If you would like to see the rest of Rick’s lovely images then click here and it will take you to his Etsy shop.  Since my birthday was Wednesday, the first day of Spring, I wanted to keep with the theme of Spring so I stayed with the color of green.  I’m really happy with the way this Spring Goddess came out.  Rick has goddesses for the other seasons as well if you want them.  There is no reason to not join this challenge since it is Anything Goes this time.  I am going to look for you!  I hope you have found a little inspiration here.  As always…Stay Crafty…Be Inspired…Be Happy…and Be Blessed…Ciao!
