Oh Happy Day!

Today was one of those rare days when the house was quiet. A little to quiet! So I turned on the tunes and played! The kids are back in school so hopefully I can fit creative time back into my schedule on a regular basis!

I had a blast making this birthday card for a friend. The pattern paper is by Amy Tangerine/Sketchbook. The pink and green flags are cut from DCWV Glitzy Glitter Matstack and embossed with the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots floder. The digi image is called "Party Hardy" by Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary. I colored  her with Copic Markers and cut her out with Spellbinders Nestabilities/Big Scalloped Circles.

The pink ribbon I found at a local antique store.

I used yellow Stickles Glitter Glue on the banner :)


I'm going to enter this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge #24. The challenge was photo inspiration. I chose my colors based on the photo provided.

As always, thanks for looking! Hope you have a delightful week!
Gentle Hugs!

Eeeek! Copic class in MY area!

I was very excited yesterday to learn that a Copic Certification Class was going to be taught 20 minutes from my house!! I immediately submitted my application to take the class and within a couple of hours I got an email stating I had been accepted! I am over the moon about this opportunity! I immediately pulled out some of my favorite digis so I could practice :)

Smashing with Color!

This was a quick page I was able to do in between our busy summer days. I was inspired by all the colors of summer. This was my first experience coloring hair that was not brown. I was nervous at first, but had a blast doing it. I think I will try to think outside of the box more often when coloring :) I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by! Gentle Hugs!

P.S. I made this Keep Calm sign...feel free to copy it! :)
