Happy Sunday


Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I am feeling better today, still not great, but better.  Thank you so much for all the well wishes, they were very much appreciated.  I have a sneak peek for you from Sassy Studio Designs.  This is Stroke of Midnight from the upcoming release-December 1st.   !I think this is the sweetest picture, and I colored it to resemble myself and my husband-I know corny huh!  Oh well!  I used my prima pencils and baby oil, and shimmerz from 7kidscollegefund.  So don’t forget to join in on the release party for SSD on Tuesday December 1st.  Lindsay always makes it fun, and you never know what surprises there will be!  Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by.

Feature Friday with The Character Cafe’


Good morning, hope all is well with you.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I was and still am sick, good thing we did our Thanksgiving early.  My oldest was gone all week, so we did our Thanksgiving on Sunday.  At least I didn’t have to cook while I was sick!  Today is Friday and that means Feature Friday at The Character Cafe’.  Today  I used Izzy the Elf, isn’t she adorable!!  I used a sketch from The Sweet Stop, it isn’t exactly like theirs, I just tweaked it a bit!  Make sure you check out the rest of the DT members blog listed on the left hand side.  Have a wonderful day!!!

The Princess and the Frog


Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I’m feeling much better, thank you for all the well wishes.  Evidently it wasn’t the flu, just some bug.  Sassy Studio Designs has a bonus challenge for you this week.   Lindsay is a HUGE Disney fan, and in fact did a fairy tale release a couple of months ago.  Her challenge for you is to make something inspired by the movie The Princess and the Frog.  You have until Dec. 11 at midnight PST.  And the prize is amazing-9, yes I said 9 images from the fairy tale release.

So, for this fun challenge I used her princess and frog image, along with the frog-which by the way is a freebie on the SSD blog.  I also decided to do an easel card.  I’ve never done one before, it was very easy, although I did mess up my score lines a bit, so it doesn’t quite stand up like it should.   Oh well, it was fun, here is a close up of the front of it:

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I have some ATC’s to share with you today.  I actually made these a few weeks ago, just haven’t posted them.  This first one is for the 50’s group.  The image is 50’s sweetheart from The Greeting Farm


This next one was for the Asian group.  The image is Geisha Anya from The Greeting Farm.  I happened to get this image while it was a digi, so it was easily resized.


This one also uses a digi image from The Greeting Farm, it’s Timmy Stocking-isn’t he sooooo cute!!!


This was for the vintage category,and I’m so sorry, I don’t know where I got the image.  But it is a vintage ad for Warner’s.


And this one was for the Rock ‘n Roll category.  As soon as I saw this category I knew I had to use this image.  This is Rockin’ Roxie from Sassy Studio Designs.  Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Good morning, hope all is well with you.  Today is a vintage/shabby chic challenge for you from Robyn’s Fetish.  I have such a hard  time with vintage!  I don’t know why, but it is.  Now my mother on the other hand is amazing at it, and she gave me a box for mother’s day with all kinds of vintage embellishments.  So I did run to that box-thank goodness for it.  I used the image Dolly with Presents.  I used a sketch from Lili of the Valley.  Make sure you play along with this challenge for a chance to win some Robyn’s Fetish images.  The challenge is on the Robyn’s Fetish Challenge Blog.   Also, don’t forget to check out my very talented fellow DT member’s listed on the right hand side.  Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Sketch Girl Sketch #9

SG9 SG9 Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I know, I know, I’m so late with this post.  But as most of you probably know, I was out of town last week on a personal matter.  And Annie, was gracious enough to let me do this when I got back.  When I saw this sketch, I wondered what the heck I was gonna do with it.  Then The Greeting Farm offered these wonderful little digi’s for a limited time, and of course I HAD to have them.  As you can see they represent Edward, Bella, and Jacob.  Aren’t they the cutest?! Make sure you play along with the us on Sketch Girl Challenge Blog.  And, don’t forget to check out my fellow DT member’s listed on the left hand side.

The Charater Cafe' Blog Hop

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is release day for The Character Cafe'. Kendra and Kelly have come up with the cutest designs this month for you. So, I had this brilliant idea to make a gift bag with the image that I was assigned. And wouldn't you know it that I saw the same idea on a fellow DT members blog. Well, like I told her "Great Minds". So this time around I was given Pax the Penguin to work with. Isn't he adorable?! I just thought a gift bag would be so cute, and this is what I came up with.

The deets for this blog hop are as follows-
You must comment on every one's blog in order to qualify for the Grand Prize of all of the new releases.

Rockin' Roxie-Rockin' the Pink Polka Dot Guitar!

Good morning, hope all is well with you. I've almost got my blog put back together, just one more list-yay! Today is challenge day over at Sassy Studio Designs, and the challenge for you today is: Paper Piecing! As many of you know I tried this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I'm one of those people that always thinks things are harder than they really are. Now that I've done it, I LOVE it, and can't wait to see what else I can do. So when I saw this challenge I was very excited, and then scared again. But when I finally decided on my image, I was excited again, I knew exactly what I wanted. She just screamed out to me that she needed a pink polka dot guitar!!! I almost did her hair, but thought that was too much-heehee! So make sure you play along. The winner gets 2 SSD images, how can you not play, you know you want those images-lol! The sketch I used was from The Sweet Stop. Have a wonderful day, and have fun creating!

Some Blogger Problems

Good morning, hope all is well with you. I don't know if anyone else is having problems, but I sure am. I changed the look of my blog, and lost a couple of list along the way-no problem just put them back up. WELL, I would if I could. Every time I try to add a blog list I get one on there and can't put any more!!!! GRRRR! I promise I'll get them back up there ASAP. So sorry for the inconvenience.
