Just popping in to say Boo with a cute little Ghosty that I made using a large styrofoam ball and lots of ribbon. To be exact it is about 2 1/2 yards of gross grain white ribbon and I cut it10 inches long. Then I layered and glued the ribbon on the top, popped some eyes on my little Miss Ghosty. Now she  is starting to come alive! Glued on a bow at the top and place a dowel stick on the bottom and there you have a fun little ghosty project even the kids can do.
Hope you like her. She is fun and one of those little projects that just make you smile.

Feels Like Fall

That is what this card screams at me. I love the cooler weather and the fall colors. We don't get to see much of the fall colors though in AZ.  I guess that why I love using it on cards. What is fun about this card is that the little Happy Birthday stick comes out of the laces.It can be used as a plant stick, or would be cute on a cupcake too. Lots of possibilities.
I colored Little Miss Swiss Pixie Brigitta with assorted Copics.Just trying to really try something new each time I color, especially with the shading.
I have also used some graphics Wimsical Seasons by Lori Garner  from PC Crafter's for the background. All in all I am spending more time in the craftroom and I am loving that. Especially when it is feeling like Fall.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card. Have a great week.

So Sad

It has been awhile since I have been on here and I have promised myself that I am going to keep up with my blog and not let it go like before. Today's posting isn't about crafts though it is about my little friend Bear Bear.
It has been a hard few weeks for me as Bear had to be put down after 17 years. He was my little friend since he was 6 months old. That was so hard to do but had to be as he was just getting where he couldn't cope any longer. I miss him so much and still see him walking around here.Sad to say it has been so hard. You never do know how attached you become to these little critters.What is so sad is my dog went and layed down for 2 hours at the very spot the Bear Bear layed down in the afternoons. Is that weird or what? I know he is in a better place with no more pain. This is a picture taken of Bear just a few weeks ago.
Thanks for letting me share my story of Bear. Have a great week and give your fur babies a little hug from time to time.
