Just For You!

Hello Friends!  Tomorrow is the deadline for Jen Del Muro's April Sketch For You To Try.  I'm squeezing this one in just under the wire! 

I used this sweet digital image from Mabelle Ramirez-Ortiz.  Her Etsy shop is called Whimsy and Stars Studio.  You can check out her other images here.  After I printed this beauty out, I colored her up with Copic Markers (BG10, BG18, C0, E000, E00, E01, E35, E37, E57, R11, Y21, YG45, YR30, and the Colorless Blender.)

The papers are from the Dilly Dally Collection from My Mind's Eye.  The sentiment is from the Fresh From the Oven set from My Favorite Things.  All of the buttons are Papertrey Ink and to finish off my card, I added lots of machine stitching.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit with me.  I seem to be having lots of issues with the new set up from Blogger, hence the reason for the lack of posts, but I'm slowly working through it.  The good news is that I only have 35 more days of school (but who's and then I can stamp away and try to figure out all of these computer glitches!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

Hello Again!!

Hello Friends! I'm back and feeling much better. The eyedrops are working wonders and my new glasses arrived on Thursday. It is so good to be able see clearly! I've missed coloring and crafting so much!! I've really missed reading everyone's blogs too! I'm hoping to check in with all of my blogging friends at some point this weekend.

Here is my card for yesterday's Blogger's Challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch from Lisa Somerville. Please visit her blog ( for all of the details to play along. (Apparently, Blogger is still not letting me add links to my blog posts.) My image is from Lili of the Valley stamps. These cute little mice are colored up with Copic Markers (C0, C1, C3, E11, E13, E40, E42, R35, R46 R83, YG93, YG95, and the Colorless Blender.) The sentiment is an oldie from Stampin' Up. All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye. The open scallops are made with My Favorite Things Die-Namics. The button is from Papertrey Ink and I finished this card off with lots of machine sewing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit with me, and thanks to all of my friends for checking in on me. You are the BEST! Enjoy the rest of the weekend...Toodles! :D
