August Joy

The August Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge is posted and I hope you can play along with us. This year of color each month has been fun.    


My creation is using Winter Wonderland that is colored with Copic markers. I did cut the panel with a stitched die and layered onto designer paper the the base layer. Just a few enamel dots and some sparkle for the accents. Voila!

Climbing Clematis for a friend

Friday it is and the last day of July. I can't even believe this summer let alone year, but I won't dive into that mood right now.  ;-)  How about some Climbing Clematis today?  This happens to be on sale right now so check it out. These are such pretty flowers and so much enjoyment to color them. Been feeling in a slump lately so I am happy to finally pull out of it a little with these guys. 


Pretty straight forward with this card. Colored the image with various Copic markers and added a die cut edge to the bottom of the panel. I then added another layer of white card stock to the base and some texture to the majority of the panel. Wrapped some colored twine around that layer and added to the base of the card. Finished off with my sentiment some sequins and sparkle. Voila!

Off the hook

Morning. Dusted off an old set that is no longer available for this card today. It is for a special person and I miss them greatly. Very easy design since I am feeling rather rusty lately. 


Colored the image with Copic markers and added a stitched die cut for the shape. My designer paper was the inspiration for the colors with a touch of pink. I can always color with blue hues for anything. hee hee  Added a button and some twine for the accent on the sentiment. Voila! Hope you have a wonderful week.

Juicy Berries

Happy Friday! These Juicy Strawberries were in the bin that I have colored long ago and I just never finished a card with them.  This turned out summery and cute I think and since it was already colored easy to put together.


A simple layer of the berries panel on some banana card stock. Then layered onto a die cut piece and some designer paper down the edge. Embossed the base layer and wrapped some twine. My sentiment from Go Wild and then some sparkles to finish it off. Voila!

Just for the girls today

How about some for the girls today? One of my favorite sets for the girls is retired but I still have the set used to be called Glamour Girls. A friend needed a few so I knew she was coming out. My first one was inspired by the designer paper that I got and finally am using. It is so soft, pretty and girlie I think. Used the fancy image in the set and colored her with copics. A stitched rectangle die and some layers of ribbon and lace trim. Sparkle on the hat to finish her off. 

Next up is the more teen fun like colors with black and yellow polka dots. She is so FUN! Adored this set from day one I tell you what. Added some scallops and lace trim along the side of this one. A few primas that my sweet friend Pat made me long ago. Yep still have some and using them only for special cards. 


Next is with the same girl but red and black with a few punched flowers added to this one. This sentiment is perfect and I added some fancy ribbon lace that I have had forever to the die cut edge. 


I think all three turned out great considering I feel rather rusty at creating lately and coloring. Well off to do some more creations. Thanks for stopping by.  ;-)

Sports shirts

Happy day today. :-)  My cards today are for the sports men in our lives using the dies I was playing with. My first one is one that I could see going either way out in the weeds or to a picnic with friends. I like the gingham paper from the paper pack Menswear Material collection. This is a versatile card for sure. 


Next up is the one for the avid hunter or fisher I think. Is that zipper not totally adorable? The die even has a smaller one to put on the pockets if you want. Oh my goodness totally fun and so cute! Just loving this die set for sure. Went ahead and just added buttons to the base shirt without the extra layer. The paper on this one is from the Cool and Casual paper pack. All supplies from Divinity Designs.


Almost done with my latest card request which is good news. 
Don't forget about my Stamps For Sale. Still have a few left check it out HERE. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Gamer birthday

I bought this digital image I don't know how long ago and finally am using it. He is called Game On and he sure is perfect for a guy birthday we have coming up. He is printed on kraft cardstock and colored with Prisma colored pencils. 

Pierced around the edge for the image panel then layered on to the designer paper and the embossed red base layer. A few die cut banners and stars for accents. Finished with the birthday sentiment. Voila!
