IMAGES FROM ETSY

I came across some cute images on Etsy and could not wait to play with them.  They have several others I may go back and purchase also.These ladies reminded me of the hat ladies so I went more for spiritual/comfort on them.  I am entering the purple one in an Outlaw challenge which I have not done for a very long time.  Any way, I should get to bed as I have a busy schedule today.  Take care

COMPLETED ORDER

Hello friends.  I am still a slacker and don't post as much as I use to.  However, I have continued to create on a regular.  Having some withdrawals about Scraps of Color closing which is where all my 12 -13 years of work will be gone forever.  I loved that place and glad I got to make so many new friends and acquaintance's there.  I hope you will continue to follow me or friend me on FB also.

My projects today are for an order of an altered journal book and a birthday card for a 90 yo.  The image on the journal was found on Pinterest.  I like how it came out.  The card is more beautiful than the picture.  The party colors are gonna be purple and metallic gold.  The gold does not show up will when scanned, but it is really pretty.  That is all for me tonight so please be inspired to create something beautiful yourself. Peace

Do Your Thing

Hello my blogger friends.  Bet you was wondering where I have been.  Well, I have been right here but very busy care giving my daughter.  That still does not stop me from doing what I love.  Right now, I am loving my Julie Nutting Prima dolls and take every opportunity to play paper dolls.  What I have created today is Marisol wearing a dress altered from a Micheal's note card.  She is ready to step out on the town all blinged up for her birthday.  I love her in her orange outfit.  Thanks for looking and see you soon.

THIS AND THAT

Hello friends.  I really have been very busy, but I have to make time for me.  Crafting is my outlet, my peace of mind and my joy.  Over the last few days I did get a chance to play with a new stamp I got from Bluemoon Scrapbooking, used some of my unbranded dies and the most fun was creating a "Crazy Cat Lady" Prima doll.  Does anyone else still get pleasure out of playing with paper dolls?  Anyway, here is what I have done and I hope you get inspired in some way to do what makes you HAPPY too.  Peace

FOURTH OF JULY

Hello Friends.  Been away to Punta Cana DR.  It was fun and nice to get away, but there is no place like home especially if that is where your craft stash is.  I really needed a fix after 7 days.  I broke out some of my prima dolls and got busy creating a couple of tags for a couple of my FB friends just because.  I chose the 4th of July theme since it is upon us.  I love these dolls and have so much fun playing with them.  It brings out the kid in me.  Oh well, you are never to old to have fun.  Thanks for stopping by.

MALE BIRTHDAYS

I'm back.  Did anyone miss me?  LOL oh well, I will pretend you did anyway.  Just to catch you up, I had a birthday on May 23 and turned 40+.  My bff's husband sent me a flight to come visit her in Dallas on the 24th which is her birthday.  On Friday we hooked up with Roz Davis, who is another online crafty friend, and drove to Oklahoma for a weekend of crafting.  It was a wonderful retreat house and the 5 of us had a great time bonding and crafting until Monday evening.  I will definitely do this again.  After returning home on a Wednesday, I had a few days before heading to the White Mountains in Pinetop, AZ.  I had never been but lived in AZ all my life.  Me and my friend Bernie hit every casino on the way up.  Unfortunately, we left our donations there.  Next up and last trip for this summer is next Wednesday.  Me and my sis are headed to Punta Cana, DR for 5 days.  I look forward to this get away.  Well, enough about my adventures, I did come to post a couple of cards.  I rarely make male cards as it does not come easy for me.  I got a request for one so I just made two.  I like how they came out.

MOTHER'S DAY 2017

Hello, it's me.  Yep, I have been a slacker when it comes to this blog.  However, I have been creating on a regular. Got orders for about 15 cards.  Mostly Mother's Day, but 3 birthdays and one graduation.  I love to create unique cards but sometimes it is a challenge to stay focused and get things done.  I have three more to complete then I am done for now.  Here are 5 of the Mother's Day cards.  Peace out

LA LA LAND #2

Hello people, it has been awhile.  That does not mean I have not been creating, just forgetting to update sometimes.  Today I am sharing 2 cards I used with my second La la Land stamp I purchased at Bluemoon Scrapbooking this week.  I had been eyeballing it for a couple of weeks as it appeared to be something I wanted to create a card for one of my coloring class friends grand daughter who is terminal.  She has been released from the hospital but only given a few months to live.  Bless my Embrace Your Art ( Scraps of Color) friends , as many have sent cards as well just to brighten her day.  While I was at it, there is another lady who spends most of her time care giving her child.  She needs a smile also, so I made her an Easter card which I am entering into a challenge over at Embrace your Art.  I remember when I was in her position and feeling like you had the world on your shoulders.  You become Super Mom at these times.  Anyway, hope I have sparked some creativity in you or perhaps get you to thinking of someone who might need some cheering up.  Catch you later.

NEW IMAGE I FOUND AND LOVED.

Hello bloggers and friends.  I was on Pinterest and came across this cute digi image that I had to purchase from ETSY.  It came with 4 images that were African inspired.  This one was my favorite so I did her three times.  Hope you like her as much as I did.  Thanks for stopping in.

TAG YOUR IT

Hello crafty people.  Hope you are taking time to get in some crafting since it is National Craft Month.  I myself try to get it in whenever I can as I am obsessed with creating. Last night I created a couple of Prima doll tags.  One is for a friend who shares his birthday with St. Patrick and the other I was just playing around with an Asian themed tag.  I used Adam and Marisol dolls.

Thanks for stopping in.

NEW PRIMA COWGIRLS ANNIE AND CASSIE

Hello ya'll.  You know I love me some cowboys and cowgirls.  As soon as Bluemoon got in the new Cassie and Ann dies and stamps I was there to get mine.  These girls are so much fun to play with just as all the other Prima Dolls.  I made Annie into a door hanger and Cassie is on a tag.  Sharing with you and hope you get inspired to create some happiness.  Thanks

ALTERED FRAME

Hello, thought I would do a little bit of playing with altered art this past weekend.  I bought an unfinished wood plaque from Aaron Brothers and painted it black.  Next I printed a Prima Princesses color book page to fit the open space.  I used copic markers to color her in some earth tones.  After fussing cutting her I mod podged her to the wood.  Added a wood "Sweet" and some flowers.  I liked this so much I think I will make another one soon.  Thanks for stopping by.

GIVEAWAYS

Hello people.  What a nice week we are having here in Tucson, AZ.  Gonna be in the 70's all week.  It is a struggle deciding to craft or go out in the sun.  Good thing I am balanced because I can do both and enjoy it.

Today I am sharing some giveaway cards that I completed.  I like to share my work with others so from time to time I post some kind of giveaway on Facebook.  Last week I gave away a tag, but felt generous and wanted to give some more so I had 3 alternate winners of whatever I wanted to make.  I used the same image that was on the tag and made them all the same with different base colors.  I also made a card for my February Facebook Friend. This was an app I did on FB that showed your 2017 calender of friends.   She loves her Basset Hound so I went with that.  Thanks for stopping in .

MORE COLORING PAGE CARDS AND A BOOK MARK

Did anyone fall in love with the images in the Prima Princesses books?  Well, I am still loving them and I was told that they are releasing some of them in stamp form soon.  Bluemoon Scrapbooking just ordered 9 of them.  Hope they get the ones I like.  I completed another African style one, an Asian persuasion and a book mark.  The book mark needs to be completed then I will give it away on FB.  Thanks for letting me share.

PRIMA COLORING PAGES

Hi Folks, anybody that knows me will tell you I am not into the adult coloring book thing because they are just to busy for me.  However, if you add something girly and pretty, I am all down for it.  If you have not seen the Prima coloring books, you should check them out.  Particularly the Prima Princesses one.  It has the most beautiful coloring images of all races.  Of course since I am primarily a card maker, I had to shrink them to fit my needs.  I got started coloring these and could not stop.  I think you will like this book.  Peace out.

ALL ABOUT THE FACE

Hi peeps, while at Micheal's last week I picked up a Jane Davenport face stamp.  I know it is a mixed media item, but I figured I could do something with it.  I am not really into mix media.  I will dabble with it just a little sometimes.  However, I love to be creative with things and found a fun use for my new face stamps.  I think I did pretty good making it mine.  Your opinions are welcome and appreciated.  Love,. peace and see you soon.

This is what I started with:
and got these as a result:

LOVE YOU MOLLI

Hi peeps.  For the first time since I have been card making, which has been about 8 or nine years, I purchased a La-la Land Crafts stamp.  I have always thought they were kinda juvenile until I saw "Love you Molli."   I purchased her from Blue Moon Scrapbooking store and thought she would make some cute Valentine Day cards.  I was right, she did.  Check them out.  LOL, thanks for allowing me to be ME.

IT'S A NEW YEAR 2017

Hello friends and Happy New Year if I did not already tell you.  My, time seems to be just passing us by.  I tried not to make to many promises I could not keep this year.  I will just strive to do the best I can at whatever I do.
Thought I should start that off by updating this blog.  Hopefully I can learn some new crafts and techniques this year to enhance your browsing enjoyment.  I love my crafty peeps.  Yesterday I crafted all day with my Wine and Dine ladies.  We don't always get much done in 10 to 12 hrs we are here, but we have fun.  My friend Lupita provided us with a great meal of tostadas with the works.  We gotta eat and drink to fuel our creativity.  Anyway, I did complete 4 cards that I will share.  Thanks for stopping by.


 This is the closed and open card.  I love this die, it is so versitile.
