So I have tried highlighting with a white gel pen a few times (check my last post for one example) and I think I'm going a little overboard...hehe. Any tips on where and how much a person should put these?


Untraditional holidays...

I took some quick crafting time today to create this card. I used some untraditional holiday colors for this card...a salmon, mint green, white and kraft brown combo. The digi is from InStyle and I colored her with my Copics and prisma pencils. Used scrap paper once again (I just love using up waste here!) and popped her up with 3-d squares. Added puffy paint to her outfit along with some clear glitter for that added shine! Then I used flower soft for the snow she is dancing cute! :) Added a button with a hemp bow and distressed and blackened the edges around the sentiment and added some plain white ribbon for the finishing touches. So what do you untraditional just as pretty for the holidays??

A card!

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted an actual card! I have been soooooo busy lately. I doubt it will get any better with the holidays fast approaching so if you don't hear from me at some point don't think I forgot about you! I decided to give the x-mas cards a break. This is a freebie digi from Sassy Studio Designs. I colored them in and outlined in black to make them stand out a little more. Put gold stickles on both crowns. Used scrap paper from my stash. Cut out the design I put the sentiment on with my Cricut and Storybook cart. Sentiment is actually a rub-on from Martha Stewart (not her personally of course...LOL!) Bad joke! Anyways, then I finished it all off with that cute little pink bow.

LaLa Land Crafts - pink and green (hopefully this did not have to be a x-mas card!)

Etsy Inspired #65 - So Stinking Sweet
The colors pink, yellow and green inspired me here.

Good Karma??

Hopefully these winnings are a sign of good karma!

Received the above blog candy from Monica at Giddy Greetings. It is the entire monthly set of dies from Sizzix even came in a nice plastic case! I actually got these a few weeks or more ago I just haven't posted...shame on me!

I won this really cool screen door kit from Michelle at Inky Fingers. She also sent me the card that was posted on DCRU. Isn't this awesome? You should go check her site out and maybe buy one for yourself or a friend that enjoys crafting!

I won this Greeting Farm stamp of Sassy Suzi just by commenting on a certain post at the DCRU blog. I also just got another BIG package of stuff I ordered from the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. This shop is FANTASTIC...seriously you NEED to check it out! And if your like me be prepared to open up the pocket book really wide!! LOL! Right Claudia? :P

Next, I participated in another Busy Beauties Blog Hop and was selected off one of the DT blogs as a winner to pick any image I wanted so I chose the new Baking Beauty. I couldn't figure out how to post a picture without sharing the one I'm not supposed to share so the link is here to view it at the store.

Eileen at Eiglas was nice enough to pick me in collaboration with leaving a comment at C.R.A.F.T challenge blog as a winner. I was allowed to choose 2 of her digis. Now she doesn't sell these and of course it is against the rules to share because they are not watermarked or anything. But if you would like any of her images you can maybe e-mail her and she just might share one with you! Stay tuned for anything I might post with her name credited...those will be the digis I chose!

Dawn left me a surprise comment on my blog that she wanted to give me a digi of my choice from Karen's Doodles. All I had to do was comment on the Doodle Diva blog. I believe this company is really new and they are releasing several new digis all the time. Many are also available in rubber! These are seriously some of the cutest new images I have seen! I chose Bigsby but he was a freebie at one point so they went ahead and gave me him along with my second choice of Noel which is of the birds singing. Aren't they adorable? I LOVE THEM!!

There is more but I will post that some other time...this post is getting really long! LOL!

I want to just say THANK YOU to all the VERY GENEROUS ladies out there! I am soooooo thankful for everything I receive!
