Wishing you a purr-fect day!

I am working on finding my mojo! I started this card a week ago and figured it was time to just finish it. Isn't it funny how one minute you are all knee deep in creativity and then the next minute you feel like you could walk away from crafting all together?

I participated in a Valentine's Day Swap on one of the groups I'm in and was so THRILLED to receive Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid 6x6 paper pad and some fun Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles (enamel dots)! I might have squealed when I opened the package! So very fun!!

I also must say I am so proud of how I colored the kitty cat on this cute La La Land stamp, retired Marci with Cat. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Sorry for the lack of posts this last week. My mojo packed up and left town, I think. I just haven't had the desire to create at all. I'm also trying to get to feeling better as a nasty cold bug that started with Belle and then Sam has moved onto me. Yay me, LOL!

I hope that my mojo comes back soon so I can have lots to share with you all!

Have a happy day!

I'll leave you with a photo of a squirrel with a slice of pizza! LOL! Our neighbors always have critters getting into their trash and then those critters bring it in our yard. Luckily the neighbors usually clean up our yard up though. Anyway, we were surprised when we looked out the window and saw this chubby guy with a slice of pizza bigger than him!! He munched on it, moved it and munched some more. Quite the entertainment for me for a little while!

Flowers in a Vase

In the Conie Fong Art & Design Facebook Group the February Challenge is to create a project using the digi, Flowers in a Vase, which was a freebie. I thought it would be fun to play along and the image was so fun to color up! Of course I went with bright colors as they just make me happy!

Have a super happy day!! and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Sending you my love

Today I have a card using a cute digi, Love Letter Avery, from The Paper Nest Dolls. I have been seeing cards made with these cute digis all over the web so I thought I'd color one up. I like that they are instant downloads when you purchase them so you can satisfy that *need it now* mood!! 

I used a Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout, #17~

I'm entering this card into the following challenges~

Today I'm continuing on with my challenge to myself to use the Sweet Sunday Sketches in order. I'm up to #16 and this one really threw me. I don't know how many times I would pull up the sketch, try to figure out what to do and then do a different project! LOL! Today I decided enough is enough, time to just get it done!

Here's the sketch~

I changed things around a bit but I think you can still see the sketch in the card. I used a super sweet stamp I got from C.C. Designs called Freckles. Isn't she just a doll??

Have a super happy day and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You

In the last few months I've won several challenges and the prizes were digi stamps from Bugaboo Stamps so I thought I would print one out and color it up today! 

This fun digi is called Kidz Punky Topper. I think it's so fun with her little cat peeking out! I was in a polka dot mood, can you tell?

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!

1 stamp 3 ways

**Warning~~ Very photo intensive post!**

For quite awhile I have wanted to take one stamp/image and color it multiple ways so I finally just took the time to do it!

I chose a stamp from the Power Poppy set, Short Stacks.

I colored the first image with prismacolor pencils which was very fun for me. Before I got copics I primarily used prismacolor pencils to color with but never shaded and layered the colors so it was fun to try new techniques.  I used a sketch from Power Poppy for this card~

The next image I colored with Zig Clean Color markers. It was such a tiny area that I was very nervous working with the watercolors but I was pleased with the results and how it really wasn't as hard as I had expected. 

The last image I colored with copics. I tried to keep the colors similar in all 3 images so it could be a fair comparison. I don't know that I have a "favorite" but it's interesting to me to see the differences. 

I'm so happy I took the time to do this as it was so much fun! 

Sorry it's been so quiet on my blog lately. I started my new job and am getting use to getting up early again on the days I work, etc. I won't be working many hours a week so once training is over I should be back to creating like crazy again!!

Have a wonderful day!
