Merry Christmas Everyone!

I know it has been a while since I posted, but I have been really busy crafting away and getting ready for Christmas.
I was blessed yet again this year, with Alex being able to come home for the holidays. It is so amazing to have both of my kids in the house for 10 days. The time goes by way to fast, but I cherish each and every day.
Christmas itself was a quiet day for all of us with both of the kids out with a tummy bug, but for me it was a lovely day reflecting on how blessed I am. I also don't lose track of the fact that God sent us His Son to pay for my sins. I am always amazed by God's mercy and love.

Here are a couple of projects that I forgot to post about.
This was for the December 16th Challenge over at Just Inspirational Challenges. I am still getting the hang of blogging in time for the challenge. I am going to get a head start on the next one.

These two beautiful Lacy Sunshine Rory's were so fun to color and I made them for 2 swaps that I did for Christmas.
I colored this Lacy Sunshine for my Mom's Christmas card! I think I was on a total Lacy Sunshine roll this Christmas! They are so cute and so much fun to color!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas, and I am really excited about what 2015 is going to bring me!

Rory Batter-Up

TGIF everyone!

It has been a long week for me, swamped with work and a list of cards that seem to be multiplying before my very eyes!

I made this amazing card for my cousin Joanne for her birthday. I think around our birthday's we can all use a little whimsy in our lives.

As you have probably noticed I am on a Lacy Sunshine kick lately. Her designs are adorable and really fun to color.

The paper is from Doodlebug Design "Happy Camper" 6x6 paper pad. Burlap flower is from Hobby Lobby.
I used the following trusty copic's to color her.
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Eye: B60
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27
Wood: E30, E34, E44, E47
Plum: RV63, RV66, RV69
Teal: BG53, BG45, BG49
Grass: G21, G24, G28, G99

Homeplate: E42, E43, E44
Flower: YR14, YR15, YR16, YR07/ YR24, YR27

As one of my favorite people in the whole world I had a blast making this card for Joanne. 
I will be back soon with another coloring adventure.

Rory's Christmas Tree

Hi Everyone,

December is a very busy time of the year for me. My daughter's birthday is on the 7th, my favorite cousin is on the 12th, my birthday is the 17th, then Christmas and 3 weeks after Christmas is my son's birthday. So on top of Christmas Cards, Birthday Cards and DT cards I am really busy.

I have to admit though it is my favorite time of the year. I love decorating the house, and cooking and baking. It is also a really special time of the year because my son gets leave from the Navy so I have both of my kids home at the same time!

So this card come's from one of my favorite designers Heather Valentin from Lacy Sunshine. I have so much fun coloring these images. Any way this one is called "Rory's Christmas Tree"
I used papers from Doodlebug Designs "Frosty Friends" 6x6 paper pad. I used ribbon from my stash and some spare glitter paper to make the snowflakes. I used Stampendous Frantage Chunky White Embossing Enamel mixed with some blue and silver glitter.

Copics I used were:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 and R20
Hair: E43, E44, E47
Hat: BG11, BG23, BG13, BV00, BV01, BV02
Jacket: BG11, BG23, BG13
Scarf: W2, W3, W4, W5
Jeans & Ribbons: B32, B34, B37
Shoes: W2, W3, W5, W6, V17
Bag: E30, E33, E34, E35, E37
Tree: E49, G29

I hope you like what I have colored, make sure to head over to Lacy Sunshine as she has new images everyday!
