Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post today with a card I made for a friend. I wanted to share it sooner but I had to make sure she received it first hehe.

I just love this sentiment. The image is from Art Impressions and the sentiment I combined it with is from Funny bones by Riley and Company. They have a whole line of really cute and funny sentiments. I found it at my local favorite scrap store here in Topsfield. I colored the image with my copics. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by for a quick visit. I am entering this in the following challenges:

Back to the real world

Hi Everyone,

Well I am back from my wonderful time in Nashville. It was still cold there but we had so much fun. Heard some great musicians playing at the restaurants and bars, loved BB Kings went there 3 times. The Grand Ole Ole Opry was just amazing. So many talented performers and such a fun setting too. We went Saturday night and what I did not realize is that they do a live radio show, so the whole show we are watching is being broadcast to the radio. It was a great time. Even bought myself a pair of cowboy boots!

But now back to real life hehe. We will start with a new challenge at Color Me Creative and it is everyone's favorite....anything goes! Yup, any image, any theme, and any color as long as you use alcohol markers or colored pencils to color it. Easy right? So here is what I did.


I colored her using my copics
Pants:  B99, 97, 95, 93, 
TOP:  R29, R27, R24, R22
YG: 25, YG03, YG00
HAIR E29, E25, E31, E50

This cutie is an image from La La Land Stamps, coloring Marci. You can purchase her also at Marker Pop who is our wonderful sponsor this week. 


If you win the challenge you will receive a $25 gift certificate to their online store. How awesome is that. 
We also have a monthly winner drawn from all entries for the month who can win a gift certificate to Oozak. 
So I hope you will join us in this easy challenge. 
Also go on over and see what the other DT members have done, they are gorgeous. 

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think.

Valentine's in Nashville

Hi Everyone,

So today I am showing you the card I made for husband for Valentine's Day. We are headed out to Nashville tomorrow for a conference he is attending and I am going because I have never been.  So if any of you have been there please let me know if there is something I should see or do, or maybe a great restaurant to go to. We will be right in downtown Nashville. I did get tickets for the Grand Ole Opry for Saturday night, don't ask me who is playing I really don't know much about country music hehe! I am sure we will enjoy whoever is there.

So here is his card, it is a bit sexy so if you are shy look away!! Of course, this adorable Kenny K image might have been more appropriate for me 30 years ago but what the heck, I thought she was great! Besides we have been married for 30 years this summer and he is still wonderful enough to tell me I look just as good (God Bless that poor eye sight as we age hehehe).

I colored her with my copics and added a bit of shine to her shoes and sparkle to  her ruffles.

Thanks for stopping by. I am entering this in the following challenges:
