Cat's, Bat's and Candy

That is what I named this little card. The graphics are from Jamie Dawson's Pumpkin Town over at PC Crafter's. I wanted something not to scary for a little one and her graphics did just that. Fun but not scary. On the background I cut fringe on the Wishblade then fluffed it out for a different effect.
The backpack I had to try.I saw it over at Scrappygma's blog (she has such cute things) I am going to fill it with a few goodies for my granddaughter. She loves to have her name on everything lately so I thought I would make that happen with her name on the backpack. They are fun to make and you can find the instructions here at Splitcoaststampers.
That is it for the day now it's time to do something productive pertaining to laundry.
Hope you all have a great day!

Scrap This, Scrap That

That is what I have been doing this morning. I have a list a mile long of things I want to start and a few things to finish up. It is good to start a list at least it gives you a starting point. Now I know why Santa keeps one. How in the world would he get it all done without one?
This is a little card I started a week ago and finally got it done. A friend stamped it for me and I colored it with my copics. A little sticklers on the wings and bottom of her dress and she is ready for flight.I couldn't wait to get her done as I had the sketch in my head already. Of course today was the day to get it done. It is a beautiful day here and I am enjoying playing in my craft room once again.
Ok, let's see what else I can get done today or at least started. Thank you for looking and if would like to leave a comment please do as I enjoy hearing from you.
Have a great day everyone.

I love Coloring!

Not sure if I should be spending so much time playing in the craft room but it sure feels good. I spent the day yesterday just coloring and redesigning my blog a little. The ole brain doesn't remember all the little details of the blog yet but I am sure with time it will all come back.
I know I have to take a little more time and go through so many tutorials on the Copic's but I do know I am liking the fun and the calming effect it has on you just getting lost in your own little child world. I use to love to color then and find I still do.
This little lady was fun to do. She is cut out and sitting on her present.I probaby could of shaded her some but still learning that technique. Maybe the next one.
Hoping you all have a great day and thanks for any comments. I love hearing from you.

Sharing Some Cookies

Who doesn't love some chocolate chip cookies while sharing them with a good friend. I fell in love with this stamp and of course had to buy it and come home and color it with Copics. Gee the cookies are calling me now. It is such a beautiful day maybe it's time to start baking some cookies and sharing with a friend. Yummy!
Thanks for looking.

I'm Back!!!

I have been trying to get a few cards made and get back into the crafting mode again. Well now is the time to get my blog back up and running too. I think I was just in a crafting slump and needed a break for awhile. I've been collecting lots of ideas and looking at different types of craft things for inspiration. Even trying a few new things such as the Copic markers. Wasn't even going to get into those little guys as they can be quite expensive but, oh well, I always say I won't but do it anyway. I even tried a Magnolia Tilda and thought I would never try her. Yup! I'm hooked now. The Copics are arriving in the mail and the stamps are following me out of the craft stores.
Here is my very first Magnolia stamp image colored and made into a card. I know they will get better as time goes on but hey its the first one.
Have a few more cards to show but it is off to work for me right now. Got to pay for all those Copics.
