Hi Guys!  Thanks for stopping by today.

I have to say I love how my card for this week turned out.
I am using a Connie Fong digital image.  This snowman is so adorable.

Hop over to Cupcake Inspiration Challenges blog and join in the fun.
Our challenge is a color challenge, Green, Red and Pale Yellow.
(See Photo Below)

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The red stripes are from an old retired Stampin' Up background stamp.  The two circles are from Stampin' Up dies.  The polka dot paper and red ribbon are from some old stash I had.

Welcome to a new week and a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspiration Challenges!

It's been a super busy couples of week here.  My youngest went off to college.  So happy for him but I am one lonely Mama.  My husband and I keep looking in his empty room.  So does our cat!  Time will get us used to it I guess.  

It's been a fun week too.  Full of creating.  My favorite thing!

This is one of my creations....  my card is using the digital stamp, 
Sasayaki Glitter

Click on the stamp name to go directly to the shop.

I used up some older stash of card stock that I love.  Colored her with Copic Markers and popped her up.
The sentiment is popped up a little by folding both ends under and adhering to the card only by the ends.  I know you can't see that detail as well as in person.  Then added a few flower sequins to give it a little shine.
Oh, almost forgot!  I added Glossy Accents to her glasses to make them shine also.

Below is the Challenge Inspiration Photo

Hope to see what you have created!

Welcome, 
Today I made a little wall hanging for my Hair Stylist, Alma.



I used our Sponsor digital image from,  My Besties by Sherri Baldy, for this week's challenge.

I water colored the background in the challenge colors and colored her up with Copic Markers.

My Besties images are fabulous!  I have been purchasing them for a long time!!!
I was so excited to know they were sponsoring this week!

When you pop over to browse all the fun images, look at the icon for Birthday Besties.
It is my colored image Sherri used.  So exciting!  I can't get enough of the cuties!

The Challenge over at Cupcake Inspiration is a color challenge as you can see on my project and in the inspiration photo below.

Stop over and join in on all the fun!

So fun - I CASE'd this idea from my friend, Marisa. 
 She made Valentine boxes that I loved with emoji faces.  I've been wanting to make a card using her idea since then.
My lighting isn't good today, forgive my photo for having a pink tone 😕

This week with our new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations, the theme works!
(See photo theme below)        Black, Yellow and White

Wow, I just am in love with this sweet bear from our sponsor - Craftin Desert Divas

Click HERE to go directly to this digital stamp to shop.

I had so much fun coloring him up that I made two cards and a magnet for my refrigerator.

I used the color theme below for our new challenge over at 
Cupcake Inspiration Challenges

I used Copic markers to color.  I made the dimensional flower by using a flower punch. I punched four in total, then cut one petal off the largest and cutting one extra petal on each layer thereafter. The center being one petal.  Then glued each layer to form a 
cup - like flower and then glued them, one on top of the other.  I then glued the whole flower, once dried, onto a punched circle.  

Hope to see what you create this week over at the Cupcake blog HERE!

If you can, I would really appreciate it if you became a Follower of my blog at the top of the screen and followed along!

Thanks and have a great week!!!
