Hello everyone!  Time for a new challenge, LMMS Challenge #157 - Anything Goes.  Todays card features Best Friends Feline and Valentine Topiary.  I guess I made a few too many Valentine's cards.  I am in the process of coloring up some of the new images, and boy are they sweet.  You can check out the new images here, and be sure and check out what my teammates have created here.

I have really enjoyed using the Valentine Topiary and who doesn't love this sweet kitten.  You get 3 images with Best Friends Feline.  Colored with Copics. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello friends!  2 days late, I know, but I wanted to share this cute little Marley Be Mine and Valentine Topiary with you.  I have a thing for mice, as long as they are not real! lol

This was colored with copics, mostly.  I did use colored pencils to create the texture in Marley's fur.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!

LMMS Challenge #156 - Anything Goes

Today starts a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I have used the adorable new image Jr. Hatter Sweetie.   I love her ice cream hat with a cherry on top.  Makes me long for summer.  We are expected to get up to 18 inches of snow.  Yesterday there was a 55 car pile up due to black ice.  Well at least I don't have to go out, and it is pretty.

Isn't she cute with her chocolate ice cream hat with pink sprinkles?  She's been colored with copics and pencils, as usual, then layered onto a card.  I added a little washi tape for another pop of color.  Please check out the challenge here to see what my team-mates have created.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

LMMS Challenge #155 - Anything Goes

Hi Everyone!  Time for a new anything goes challenge at LMMS.  Challenge  #155.  This new release is so cute.  Be sure and check out what the other designers have created.  I have used this sweet image, Jr. Hatter Shower.  You could use this image for a valentine, birthday, or just thinking of you card.

I used some of my favorite colors, red and turquoise.  This card makes me feel ready for spring.  We have had a mild winter, so I am not ready for spring just yet.  I don't mind snow as long as we are not in the month of May.  As usual I have colored her with copics and color pencils.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and Smiles,

LMMS Challenge 154 - Anything Goes

After an extended holiday break we are back with our first challenge of the New Year.  Challenge #154 - Anything Goes.  I hope you all had a wonderful winter break.  Mine was wonderful!  All 3 of my sons were home for Christmas, and my husband's family were all here for Christmas.  Family is so important to both of us, and it was great being together.  I am still trying to finish a  2000 piece puzzle we started, though I haven't touched it for about a week.  Well enough about that.  For my card today I chose to use Theodore Sleeping.  I actually purchased the Theodore Sleeping card kit which you can find here.  It is a great kit!

I used copics and colored pencils, as I most often do and a white gel pen for the dreamy swirts in the sky.  I covered the wooden star from the kit with red cardstock and wrote sweet dreams with a white gel pen.  I didn't use the papers from the kit because I wanted to show another version.  Barbara's sample in the store is awesome.  Thanks for stopping by!

Polka Dot Pals Hannah - Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a card I made with LMMS Pdp Hannah.  Isn't she a cutie?  I love snuggling in pajamas with a nice hot cup of hot chocolate during the cold winter months.  I created the background paper by stamping various snowflakes with blue ink.  Pdp Hannah was colored with copics and colored pencils.  Placed her on a piece of gingham paper and then on the snowflake background paper.  Added a few sequins and snowflakes to finish the card.

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Practicing Faces Again With LMMS

Hello friends.  I have a couple of cards to share with you using Pdp Eric and Pdp Emily.  I have been practicing faces for awhile now and I have to say I am pretty happy with the results this time.   Barbara from Little Miss Muffet Stamps has a wonderful tutorial on coloring PDP Chrissie.  Though not as good as hers, I found the tutorial has helped me achieve better results.  Thank you Barbara!  You are awesome!  Here is Pdp Eric.

I chose to make Eric a boy of color using Copics and colored pencils.  I gave him a bulbous nose, fuller lips, brown eyes and curly black hair.

My next card was made with Pdp Emily and Evergreen Tree.  It was also colored with Copics and colored pencils.

I hope you feel inspired to practice faces.  It's fun, and challenging.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,
