Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year

Hi Everyone,

 Just wanted to take a moment and wish you all Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for a Healthy New Year.
In this crazy world where we hear of hideous crimes on the news, see people suffering and deal with rude people in our every day life, it is nice to come to my blog and be around the most positive people. I am always impressed with the way we encourage each other to do what we love and to learn and grow.
It gives me faith that the world is a wonderful place and we can never let others get us down.

So here's to all of you who gave me such great comments on my creations and have encouraged me to continue to do what I love THANK YOU!

Thanks to the design teams Sweet Stampin' and Color Me Creative for letting me be part of something fun!

Hugs,

Kim

We're Friends and Family

Hi everyone!!  

It's almost Christmas and though we all have family and friends we enjoy spending time with at this time of the year, we also have family and friends that we don't see or visit with often enough but still mean just as much to us!  Us gals on the Design Team ofColor Me Creative Challenge Site wanted to take a moment to send a big HUG and a special thanks to our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean.


Suzanne HAS to be the easiest and sweetest person to work with and, as many of you know from reading her blog, about the funniest too (though sometimes we ALL think she'd be better off leaving the house in bubble wrap! LOL)  *Kidding!!* 

As you may have figured out, Suzanne adores the time she spends with her family and quite often shares her travels and outings with us.  So, as a little way to encourage her to continue doing what she loves best AND to keep sharing it with us... the DT would like to invite you to share in our little blog hop sharing our creations for Suzanne that remind us of family, sharing, recording memories and love.  Suzanne is a perfect example of how to share as much time as you can with those you love and to create memories that will last a lifetime for generations to come.

So here's to you, Suzanne... we love you, your crazy ways and think you are just like family to us as well. 




Now head on over to Shelby Goolsby and enjoy the awesome project she is sharing with Suzanne. 

Thanks for stopping by and we hope you have a VERY Merry Christmas and that you make all the memories and treasured times you can with your family and friends!

We love you, Suzanne and thank you for another fabulous year with the CMC DT "family"!!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!!

Short and Sweet

Hi Everyone,

I am keeping this short and sweet, on my way to Rome, Italy today (so excited) but I wanted to get in a quick post before I left, so here it is.

This stamp is a Photopolymer stamp from Tina Wenke, got him on Christmas clearance last year, how cute!
I colored him with copics and kept it quite simple as I have been pressed for time, just like many of you. Hosting holidays, decorating, packing, cleaning, shopping and oh yeah working to pay for it all hahaha!
Have a great week everyone and I will post a picture or two when I get back.

But enough about me, over at Color Me Creative we have a new challenge and it is everyone's favorite, Anything Goes. Just remember you have color using alcohol markers or colored pencils. It is that simple.

Winter Theme

Hi Everyone,

I know look at me all active on my blog this week. I love weeks like this that I actually have a little time to do what I enjoy. So let's enjoy it why we can, we all know this won't last hehe!

So at CMC we have a new challenge and it is an easy one:  Winter Theme Colors and/or Image. How easy is that? Remember you just have to color with alcohol markers or colored pencils.

Check out my card.

 


This sweet stamp is from Stamp Fairy who  happens to be our sponsor for this challenge. He is just so cute.
So naturally I colored him with my Copic Markers.

Bear:  E59, E25, E33, E31
Hat/Scarf:  R29, R27, R24, R22

I kind of stippled his fur by making dots with the markers (a technique I learned from Suzanne from CMC in one of her classes).The polka dots on the hat and scarf I added using a Sharpie Poster Paint fine tip marker. I also used a little bit of BG10 on the snow but then covered it with Stickles icicle.

So I hope you will join us for a chance to win a prize from Stamp Fairy for this challenge and to be entered into our monthly drawing for a prize from Oozak. So come on get coloring!

Christmas is Coming

Good Morning Everyone,

Yes the holiday really are coming. I already started my Christmas shopping this week. Well since I am going away to Italy in less than 4 weeks I figured I better get a jump on some things.

So that brings us to our newest challenge at Sweet Stampin' which is naturally, Christmas is Coming. So get out your Christmas stamps as we all know one of the rules of the challenge is you must stamp something.

This is what I came up with.

I used a rubber stamp that my husband actually picked out and bought me for Christmas last year. It is from Penny Black called gift of giving. I colored her with Copics. I used a memory box die for the clouds and a Sizzix die for the holly and swirl. The tree is punch from Martha Stewart.

We have our weekly sponsor which is Cuddly Buddly and our monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl. So you have two great chances to win. I look forward to seeing what you create.

Thanks,

Guest Designer at Fussy and Fancy Friday

Hi Everyone,

So exciting news, I won the challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday last week so now I am their guest designer for this challenge. I must say I was bit nervous to create a card as a guest designer because I figured the pressure was on, but then I remembered how kind all of you are so I just let my creativity flow! The challenge theme was Black and Blue. This is what I came up with.

This is a cling stamp from Penny Black called ...in the snow. How cute is he. I am sure if you colored it pink it could be a she lol.
The wonder of it all is also a rubber stamp from Unity Stamp company that I stamped on black paper and embossed with white powder.  I colored the image using my copic markers.

Hope you like it and I hope you will go check out the challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday so that maybe you too could be a guest designer.

Free time what is that?

Hi Everyone,

So I finally have a card I did just for fun. Seems like I never have any free time lately to do what I want to do not what I have to do, if you know what I mean. But hey that is what keeps life interesting I guess.

So I made this sweet card using a digital image from Saturated Canary that I colored with my copics. I used some stickles and some glossy accents to give it a bit of dimension.

  

Can you believe it is almost that time of year!

Wood, Trees and Leaves

Good  Morning Everyone!

Today at Sweet Stampin' we have a new challenge and it is a different one, "Wood, Trees and Leaves".
Perfect for this time of year don't you think? We have a great sponsor for this challenge it is Hobbycutz.

We also have our generous monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl.

  

So here is what I came up with, I know not very creative but seriously I realized I don't have many stamps with trees, wood or leaves. I obviously need to add a bit of mother nature to my stamp collection. 

  

The tree is a rubber stamp from Penny Black called Fantasy. I used some Stickles and some Liquid Pearls on the branches, very simple and you could change out the colors for different occasions. So I hope you will join us with something you create. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Fun

Hello everyone,

Hope all is well. I am doing just fine thankfully!  I am loving fall my favorite time of the year. So many things going on this time of year and the cooler weather makes me feel refreshed.

So I have this cute card today I did, well let's just say I made a card using the wrong image for a challenge (the mind is just going) so I have this adorable card just for fun! I used a Wee stamp by Sylvia Zet and colored her using my copics. She is just the cutest witch ever. I also added some stickles on her hat for some extra sparkle.

Hope you are taking advantage of this time of year and indulging in a little Halloween fun, you know some candy, apple picking, pumpkin carving, parties etc. We went to a Halloween party the other night, it was a fundraiser I had spoke about in an earlier post. My daughter ran it and did an awesome job. I thought I would bore you a bit and share a picture of my husband and I as we went as pirates. Albeit very old pirates are we hehehe!

Good Morning Friends,

First I would like to say hello to my newest followers, it is so nice to have you aboard! I appreciate your comments and hope you will stop by often. It is always fun to share what you love with someone who appreciates your efforts.

So I have had one of those weeks, you know what I mean, appointments that ran longer than expected, a power outage, computer servers that went down at work, etc. Nothing life threatening by any means just mild inconveniences in life but annoying none the less! So I am glad the week is over and plan on starting fresh next week haha!

So this week at Sweet Stampin' we have a new challenge, Halloween! So that is fun and easy. Check out my card:

  
This adorable image was so fun to color and easy. I used my Copics to color it. It was given to us by our wonderful sponsor this week which is the Stamp Fairy.

Life is what you make of it!

Hello!

Hope everyone with children still in school, got them off without a problem. I miss those days with my girls. I used to love school shopping with them, getting the new school supplies, new shoes, etc. My youngest one I had to scrub clean of all her temporary tattoos she used to love and my oldest I had to get her nails clean as she loved to play with nail polish long before she was actually old enough to wear it hehe!

But we are at a new phase in our lives where they are all grown up and my oldest is a high school reading teacher and my youngest works in digital media advertising. So fast it all goes by, so whatever phase you are in right now love it!!!

Here is an adorable fall card I made using this sweet image from Mo's digital pencil.  I colored it using my copics. This card took forever because I had no idea where I was going with it. But it finally came together after many attempts.

Puppy Love

Hi Everyone,

So I have to show you what I did this weekend.....


Yup I adopted this sweet baby. I think the older I get the crazier I become. I already have a dog. I work two jobs, help with my inlaws who live with me but are both ill and I think I have time for this hehehe!

I could not help myself. She is a rescue dog. Only 3 pounds, her name is Lola. She is a mini dachshund mixed with something. She is 14 weeks old and was left at a shelter. How could I walk away from her?
Your right I couldn't! So back to crate training, pee training and no chewing zones hahaha. What is life without a bit of chaos!

Hello

Hello everyone!

I have finally managed to get organized after my wonderful vacation. Punta Cana was a beautiful place. The beach was so nice as was the resort we stayed at. We even did a couples total body massage, now I could get used to those!

But now I am back and creating right away. This card I made for my great nephew who is turning one this month. I used a stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil and colored him with copics.

  

I would say he is quite regal! 

I would also like to share this Caribbean sunset taken from the balcony of our room.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope to get around and see what you all have been up to.

This sweet little girl is a cling stamp from Penny Black, I just love her. Of course I colored her with my copics and added lots of stickles to her wings.

I hope you like her and thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week, I will think of you all when I am sipping my fruity drink poolside!
