Elizabeth Craft Designs

Happy Thursday everyone.

Last night I met with friends for our monthly card swap at Jade Cafe. If you like chinese food, this place is awesome.

So this is the card I made. I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Accordion fancy label die and their "Peel-Off Christmas ball stickers. I got to do one of my favorite things, play with glitter. I was thrilled with how the card turned out.

I am off to do some work, and hopefully I will get to color later on. Have a great day. xo

Just Inspirational Challenges

Hi everyone!

It is a beautiful Wednesday here in Texas, the weather has finally cooled off, so we are just in the 80's now. I have finally caught up after having surgery so I am finally getting to some "fun" coloring.

So this week over at Just Inspirational Challenges the theme is fall. Our sponsors for this week are Meljens Designs who are giving away 4 images to the winner. Eureka! Stamps who are giving away 3 images to the winner. Your Next Stamp who is offering a $10 Voucher to the winner.

So I used a Meljens Designs image for my card this week. 
So, I loved coloring this card as it reminded me of our life in Colorado where we lived for 9 years before moving to Houston. I actually miss having the 4 seasons of Colorado. Houston has 2 seasons, Summer and not Summer! The paper I used was the Autumn Crisp collection by Amercian Crafts. I also used Orange corrugated paper from the Fall & Halloween Corrugate Stack by DCWV that I purchased from Joann Fabrics.

The copic colors that I used were:
Greens: YG61, YG63, YG61
Blues: BG72, BG75, BG78
Yellows: Y23, YR21, Y26
Browns: E70, E71, E74, E77
Oranges: YR04, YR07, YR18
Reds: R14, R24, R46, R59

The 2 leaf brads I have had for many years in my stash so I was glad to use them. I also used Winks of Stella (Clear) over the letters FALL. I was really pleased with the outcome.

So I hope you will all head over to Just Inspirational Challenges and join in all the fun!

Have a great day!

Exciting News

Hi everyone,

I have started coloring again now that I am recovering from my surgery. The surgery went well and I definitely have less pain. Still struggling with fatigue, but the less pain thing is awesome! I have been coloring, but for DT cards that cannot be released yet.

On that note, I have some exciting news. I have been asked to be on the design team for Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge. I am really excited about this challenge group. There are lots of amazing stamps companies that are letting us showcase their art, and the other DT members are so talented. The challenge goes live in January, so keep checking back with me for  updates.

Thanks for all of your prayers everyone. They were truly appreciated.

Have a blessed day.
