Being Cute

Hello friends.  I have an adorable little girl image to show you today.


This little cutie is Honey Pip from the Home Grown Sherbet Pip collection over at Funky Kits.  She's colored with Distress Inks and I matted her on some Nestabilities and a doily.  I also used some lace and a button.  My yummy papers are from a blog candy I won from sweet Maria Therese.  

Have you stopped by the Sugar Nellie Blog this week?  We have a fabulous new release and some of the DT are sharing sneak peeks so be sure to stop by and check out their gorgeous creations.

Thank you for stopping by.

Delia's Birthday Wishes

Happy Wednesday to all of you.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Sugar Nellie Blog.  I'm also using this card for the "Bling It Up" challenge that starts today over on the Divas By Design Challenge Blog.


This beautiful little fairy is Sugar Nellie's Delia and you can find her over at Funky Kits.  She's colored with Distress Inks and I've added lots of Glamour Dust to make her sparkle.  This card is for a good friend's granddaughter who will soon be turning 5.  She loves pink so I think this will be the perfect card for little Emily.  And I'm sure she'll love the glitter ... what 5 year old girl doesn't love glitter lol?

Sweet Little Elise

Happy Wednesday to all of you.  I hope you are all managing to stay warm where you are.  I have a Sugar Nellie card to share with you today.


I have used this adorable Elise on my card.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and added some glitter paint to her little heart.  I followed the sketch from over at The Sugar Bowl Challenge.  There's a little tag hidden behind the picture and that's where I stamped my sentiment.  But of course I forgot to take a picture of that lol!  She's obviously well-loved because she's sold out right now but I'm sure she'll be back in stock soon over at Funky Kits.  Be sure to check out the Sugar Bowl Challenge for tons of inspiration.  And if you play along you have a chance to win some fabulous Sugar Nellie rubber stamps :)

A Sweet Little Mouse

Happy Monday friends.  We have a new challenge for you over at the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  It's our sweet Arabella's turn to pick our theme and she has decided we should use the colors red, pink and cream.  Well, as it's almost Valentine's Day, I thought I would get one more card made for the occasion.


I used this adorable little Marley - Be Mine Mouse and colored him with copics and colored pencils.  Doesn't he have the sweetest little face?  I added a seam binding bow, a felt heart, and a couple of buttons.  And guess what ... NO sparkles!  Can you believe it?  It's been a very long time since I've made a card without Glamour Dust, glitter paint, or Stickles :)

A New Di's DigiDesigns Challenge

Good morning friends.  Are you managing to stay warm?  We've been having some snow and it's sooo cold outside.  We've actually been very lucky as this has been a very mild winter so I really shouldn't complain ... but I am so ready for spring!

We have a new challenge for you over on Di's DigiDesigns Challenge Blog.  Our new challenge is "snow, snowmen, snowflakes", so I figured this would be the perfect time to add to my Christmas card stash.


I used Di's Reindeer Holly.  I colored this sweet image with copics and colored pencils and used Glossy Accents on the reindeer's nose.  I sprinkled Glamour Dust on her fur trim and the snow.  I added some snowflake diecuts, a seam binding bow, and a button to finish my card.


Our challenge is being sponsored by Sketching Stamper Digis.  Please stop by Di's DigiDesigns Challenge Blog to get all the challenge details and to see the beautiful work by the DT.

Chill Out

Good morning friends.  We have a new challenge over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  It was my turn to choose the theme and I decided on "Chill Out".  So you can make something related to winter or your interpretation of "chill out" might be something relaxing.  


I used Cuthbert Skiing for my frosty, winter card.  He's colored with copics and colored pencils and I added some Glossy Accents to his nose.  There's Glamour Dust on the hat and jacket, and I embossed the diecut circle with a snowflake embossing folder.

I'm Love Sick

Hello friends.  I hope you're having a great week so far.  Only one more day till the weekend ... yeah!  I have an unusual Valentine card to share with you today :)


This adorable image is Nurse and she's one of Mo's fabulous images.  My daughter is a nurse so when I saw this image I just had to have it and finally found some time to color this sweetie.  I thought this would make a great Valentine card for her to give to her sweetheart.  Definitely not your typical Valentine card, right?  I colored this little nurse and her teddy with Distress Inks.  I used a doily, some ribbon, a button, and some pearls.  My sentiment is from a My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp set and I thought it was perfect for this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
