oh my it's totally FREEZING here today... -22 Celcius so -7.6 Farenheit... I totally want to hibernate!  Which would probably be a good thing for me right now lol

Anyway I'm here to share with you a card that I made for the fabulous Corinne Jones who has lost her best friend.  It's an image from Simply Betty that was done specially for this friend.  You can find the image here.  It really makes a fabulous Sympathy card which I find are the hardest of all to make.

I kept the card super simple.

Dachshund Valentine

I'm here with a very short post before I run out of time to enter this great image in the progressive challenge over at Gerda steiner designs.  I didn't have much inspiration so I used a sketch to help me along.  I also used only scraps from my stash so I was super happy with that!  I really need to use those more...

Doodle Pantry - Daily Devotion

Hello everyone.  I'm super happy to report that my cat Max is feeling better!!!  I got really scared yesterday when he had been vomiting for the past 2 days... but now all seems better after the vet visit and he's started to eat again!!!

So I'm here today to share with you a fast little card that I did.  I know... I do the fast ones these days but I can't seem to concentrate much yet on anything... and crafting is better than nothing at all right?!?

For this post I'm using a fabulous set from Doodle Pantry.  I really love this set because it comes with precolored images so just perfect for those fast cards.  I find that sympathy cards are so very hard to do that if I can do one fast it's pretty good!

Here's the set Daily Devotion:
Daily Devotion

And here's my card with it.  I kept it really CAS

Little snowman

Oh my... were does the time go?!?  It shows I haven't been feeling all that good because there's much less post this year than last year!  And I'm almost late for my post for the progressive challenge of From the heart stamp.  And since I so love those images I didn't want not to play....

So I went super easy and followed their great sketch.  I didn't even use DP only some washi tape which is pretty fun since I never use them.

What's New Pussy Cat - Art by Mi Ran

Hello everyone!  Hope you are all doing good it's my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran inspiration blog.  I'm here to share with you something a bit different that I did :)  I figured it would be fun to share something other than a card.

For this make I followed the theme of the month which was to use 3 of the same elements and I decided to play with the super cute What's new Pussy Cat.
Digital Stamp - What's New Pussycat, Digi Stamp, Coloring page, Printable Line art for Card and Craft Supply
Here's my little calendar page.  I figured she was perfect for a back to school image when your cat doesn't want you to go back to school!

Simply Betty - Tuesday solo release - Market Betty

WOW there's a brand new release over at Simply Betty and this time around it's Market Betty!

Such a fun image to color as are all the great Betty's image.  I just thought this one was perfect for a retro look :)

I had this idea in my head and just had to go looking for all the right elements for this.  Lots of stuff from my stash that was just waiting for the perfect image!

Digi Choosday - Cool Blue

It's already time for a new challenge over at Digi Choosday.  And this time around it's about Cool Blue.

To me cool blue totally meant I could get another Christmas card done ahead of time!!!  Yes I know... it's early but you know Christmas will be just around the corner before we know it lol.  The image and the great paper is from the Work and play 5 - Festive Hollybobs collection.  You can also get the great digi Snowball here.  He's just soooo cute!

Cuddly Buddly - Rose Collage

I'm back for another card and this time it's for Cuddly Buddly using Rose Collage such a gorgeous stamp set!
I love the elegance of this image.  I didn't do all that much except stamp it with some Tuxedo Ink 
The paper that I used is from Ooh la la by MME.  I added some vintage lace and some pearls.  I used my Lacey square, grand squares from Spellbinder.  The flourish was made using my Johanna Sheeen curly flourish.  I colored the image using my copics.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Amusing-challenge - Anything goes
  2. Fairy tale stamper - Flowers
  3. Glitter n sparkle challenge - Pearls and swirls
  4. Pile it on challenge - Hearts and/or Flowers
  5. Allsorts challenge - Lace and pearls
That's it for me!  Hope you have a great day.  I have to go and see the doctor again!  But the good news is that I'm slowly getting more sleep... so I'll make it through!!!!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway here for the chance to win some great dies.


The east wind - Twisted venus Beautiful

It's time for a new release of images from The East Wind this new one is called Twisted Venus - Beautiful.  It's a semi nude woman but sooooo gorgeous.  I just HAD to play with her because I had the perfect friend to send this to!!!

You see I have this GORGEOUS (and I totally do mean gorgeous) friend.  She's gorgeous inside and out.  But all she sees is the stereotypical view of herself and she doesn't see how stunning she is.  It's sad that there's so much emphasis on being a tiny woman now.  It hasn't been this way through all the ages.... and it's sad... because not every woman is made to be skinny... some like my friend are just GORGEOUS the way they are!  And don't get me wrong I get that you need to be healthy.  But I do think you can also be healthy and heavier than what we see in magazine.  And being a full woman I think can be truly sexy.

So enough said, when I found my sentiment on Ginger's house I just knew I had to create this!

Meljen's inspirational post - Night time bear

Hope you are having a good week it's time for my inspirational piece for Meljen's design blog!  I'm here with a different little inspiration piece.  I made this for my little nephew to go with his Christmas present.  I figured when you are 2 and 1/2 it's really magical to play with one of those little globes.

I figured that this little guy would be perfect for this make Night time bear
Meljen's Designs Night Time Bear digital stamp
So here's my little snowglobe

The east wind - Lucy loo Punk

Faery ink - FB challenge - Analogous colors

There's a new challenge over at the Faery ink and this time it's about Analogous colors.  I had no clue what that was but Amanda provided a link were we found the information.  It's about using 3 consecutive colors in the spectrum chart.  One as a little accent and the other for the base.  Here's the chart
For my make I used the fabulous digi Sweet Heather.  For my make I went with the paler blue, darker blue and the violet in small accent.

Paradise of Stamps - Winter

Hi everyone.  It's time for the midway post over at Paradise of stamps and this time around it's Winter that's the theme.

The East Wind - FB challenge - Alyce in Wonderland

Hello everyone!  There's a new challenge on the FB group of The East Wind and this time around it's about Alyce in Wonderland.  There's some great digis from TEW that can be used for this.  But to me this little one  called Aurora Daisy Kiss was just perfect.

For those of you that have been following my blog you know that I haven't been feeling well since the fall... .and there are days that it's really bad.  I thought this sentiment from Alyce and Wonderland would be totally perfect to reflect this.

Digi Choosday - Love and Romance

There's a new challenge over at Digi Choosday and it's just in time for Valentine's day!  It's Love and Romance.

I decided to go a bit different then the usual love and romance!  So I used the fabulous Opera boy that can be found here. And paired him with some papers that are in the great new set  Work & Play 8 cd available here or the download version available here.  I made a more masculine looking card.  The sentiment is also part of the set and I thought it was just perfect with this!

Path of positivity - Uniqueness - Midway

Hello!  I'm here to share with you my midway post for Path of Positivity, the challenge this time is about uniqueness.

The fabulous sponsors are

For this post I was pretty lucky because I had already a make that was perfect for this using a fab image from Ike's Art called Muse 3.  It's a tag that was done for a swap but that I had never blogged!  That's a good thing because these days I'm not making lots of crafty stuff...

And it was perfect to share with the uniqueness challenge.  I made this thinking that being normal is probably not the best... and that being different can have it's value :)  Right now I'm far from being normal... and unfortunately I really long for it lol oh well.

Little Poppets in love - Cuddly buddly

Oh man... having such a hard time making sure to blog... I was supposed to do this one on Friday but then went to see the doctor who wasn't there... and so haven't been sleeping more and now it's really showing lol... 

I see something pass by and my attention is totally shot I'm now focused on something else... and I've started to repeat myself and I don't even remember saying stuff... wow what will it be when I get old?!?

Anyway I'm here to share with you a make that I did for Cuddly Buddly.  It's using a new set called Little poppets in Love.  It's totally adorable!!!
And here's the card that I made with it :)  I went colorful even if that's not the way that I'm feeling right now...

Charlotte Chic Valentine - RSD

Well I hope you are not fed up of my calendars :)  I just have to share with you the cover that I made for my husband's calendar using a great image of RSD for my post of Sparkle and Glitter blog.  He complained that I had done one for my son's youngest teacher... so I needed to make one for him.  You saw the May page done using Sadie for the progressive challenge.

For this I thought it was just perfect to use the fabulous Charlotte chic valentine girl she seemed the perfect party girl to start off the year!

Scribbles design challenge - Winter wonderland

Hello!  It's time for a new challenge over at Scribbles Design and this time around it's Winter Wonderland.  I thought it was just perfect to make some Christmas decorations and give them out.

Here in Canada in my area it's pretty snowy just like this little globe.  I used the great image Snow-capped-tree

Karleigh Sue - The business

There will be a new challenge starting in Feb at Karleigh Sue Challenge.  This newest challenge will be perfect to share your sexy makes!  Yes there's no challenge out there that are perfect for pin ups!  And I don't know about you but I find those make fabulous masculine cards!

I just couldn't wait for the challenge to be live to share with you what I did for my husband's b-day card.  This is the outside and I will share with you the inside at the start of the challenge.  It really was quite a sexy card.  That's pretty easy to do with the very sexy and elegant images from Karleigh Sue Digis.

In this case I used the fabulous digi The Business.  Since becoming sick, I haven't felt very sexy... but at least my card could be :)

RSD Progressive challenge part 2 - Sadie

This is the reminder post for the January RSD Progressive challenge.  This time it's anything goes with a RSD image.  So that's pretty easy.  There are so many fabulous digis that the only issues you will have is to choose which ones lol

For my make this time around I used the fabulous Sadie and used her on the May calendar page that I made for my husband for Christmas.  I figured May is mother's day and this would represent mom pretty good!  His mom was always so elegant!  So this was just perfect.

The East Wind - Winter Blues challenge

Hello!  It's time for a new challenge over at The east wind and this time it's about Winter blues!

It's so cold around here these days that yeah... I get that you feel blue!  But with the great images from The east wind you can chase those blues away by coloring!

So here's my make with the fabulous Aurora Warm Wishes.  I thought this would be the perfect time to get some Christmas crafting done.

Happy Birthday Art by Mi Ran (Day 14) - Crafting Vicky

WOW it's been a Full Year since Art by Mi Ran started up!  Where does the time pass?!?  I have to say it's been a real pleasure to be part of this team since the beginning!  I really do feel quite blessed :)

I'm here to share with you the 1st make that I did as part of the team and the new make that I did with this fabulous image.  I still just adore the great 1920 Flapper
Digital Stamp - Flapper 1920's, Girl Digi Stamp, Big eyed Coloring page, Printable Line art for Card and Craft Supply, Art by Mi Ran Jung

So here's the 1st card that I did a year ago
And here's my make this year with her.  It's very funny that I chose the same type of color tones even though I didn't check the past card previously.

But you can see I have been taking classes in coloring because my coloring is not as chalky and pale as before!
