All Flora and Fauna at Faery Ink!!

Good morning again!!  For my second post today I'm sharing my make from Faery Ink!! Today is the beginning of the April Challenge - Flora and Fauna!!









Here is my Flora and Fauna make!!  This is Flora Rose.. isn't she beautiful!! I wanted to make the rose multicolored, so I went with the red tips and yellow rose. I added some yellow lace and put the red ribbon on top of it. I also added the corner die and the butterflies layered. This was a fun card!  I colored it all with my Copic markers and did just a little bit of layering.

Extra Sassy at The East Wind!!

Good morning!

Today is a new challenge at The East Wind! Can you believe it is the 1st of April!! The challenge this time around is to Make Mine Extra Sassy! (image or sentiment with attitude). Here is what I have come up with:








This is the lovely Aurora Summer Breeze (F0415)!! Isn't she beautiful!! I colored her with my copic markers. I also used a white gel pen. I added a bit of stitching, the sassy sentiment. The oval die is a My Favorite Things die and the purple oval is a Spellbinders die. There is a bit of lace, some white dew drops and the fan dies as well. For the background I splattered white and purple paint on the black paper. I love splattered paint!

New Image Release at The East Wind

Good morning everyone!!  Yesterday I had a stress test .... this was my last clearance before surgery. Now I'm just waiting for the okay. I should have surgery scheduled in the next two or three weeks. When she told me that yesterday the nerves hit me!  So, I meet with the Cardiologist on Thursday and then with the Bariatric Surgeon next Tuesday!  So, we will see!!  I have a lot of mixed feelings... excitement, nervousness, scared! Did I excited?? LOL  I'm really excited.. and really nervous at the same time!  Okay.. enough of that... on to my post :)

Today I am sharing one of the new release images from March for The East Wind. Here is what I have done:









I am trying to use my pencils to get more experience, so I used my pencils for this one. I'm pretty sure I used my Faber-Castell Polychromos on this image. I decided to keep her all pink with a touch of blue and create a Breast Cancer card.. an 'I'm here for you'. I added two types of lace, some thread attached the 'Hope' charm that I found at Michaels in the jewelry section. The two rectangles are cut with Spellbinders dies. I added a few pearls near the sentiment, pink gems around the inner rectangle and stamped the ribbon at the top. I also stamped 'Fight Like A Girl' to the inside of the card. I did a bit of layering on this image; hopefully you can see in the photos well enough.

SLSLines March Inspiration!!

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! TGIF!!!!  Today I'm working from home and I meet with the Dietician. And I am SO HAPPY it is the weekend!! Woot!  I have a bunch of crafting to do... so that will be my weekend hopefully!!  Happy Friday everyone!!

Today I'm sharing my inspiration post for SLSLines Digital Stamps!!  I hope you all are joining us for the challenges!! Here is my inspiration:













I had so much one making this card, but even more fun coloring the image! I colored the image with my Faber-Castell Polychromos. I wanted to have him with some spots of rust. I layered him a bit too! I popped up several pieces of him.. hopefully the photos will show you! And I thought I would add a bunch of gears on the card! So I created this fun card from a Silhouette Cameo cut. I used some really old papers that I had. I'm not even sure who made them!!  All the gears were cut from Spellbinders and My Favorite Things dies. I added blue gems to parts of the gears. I also added some metal gears that I found in Michaels in the jewelry section. A bunch of metal gears.. I couldn't resist! The Happy Birthday is stamped from a Paper Smooches Stamp. I really hope you enjoy him!!  I think he is such a GREAT ROBOT!!! Be sure to grab him from SLSLines Digital Stamps Shop!!

I colored these adorable little bugs with my Copic Markers. I added the flowers which were cut with my Silhouette Cameo, I added gems to the middle of those. I put twine at the top. These papers are from KI Memories Growing Garden Paper Pad. The kraft and green are cardstock scraps. The flowers were also made out of scraps. I created the sentiment... printed it and added a few gems to that as well. I decorated the inside with the same papers and gems.

I decided to create a little ATC of Santa at the beach!!  This image is Surfin' Santa from Digital Delights! I used some kraft cardstock and some blue cardstock to create water and beach by tearing and chalking the edges of the torn paper. I colored Surfin' Santa with my Copic Markers. I layered him a little bit. I created three surfboards with my Silhouette Cameo. Then I printed the Surf's Up and cut around the words with a Funky Tag Sizzlit.
