You Go Girl!


Sooooooo, I know I ALWAYS color the cutesy, sugar & spice type of images for my cardz  …  but lately I’ve been seeing so many cool cardz with these gorgeous Kenny K. images, that I just HAD to give one a try!!  

Let’s just say it brought out that inner diva in me!  hehehe    (diva grandma, that is!)     I’m definitely hooked ~ they’re so much fun to color!    

And, of course, I had to color my first one with my all-time favorite technique ~ yep, another monochromatic card!   I probably should start a separate blog just for these cardz to save those of you who are getting tired of black and white!!   🙂



And, another new thing for me ~ I made this card for TWO challenges!    Wow, huh?      It’s funny to see so many people who are clever enough to make one card for lots and lots of challenges ~ not me, it’s hard enough to concentrate on one!    This was a definite first!   

The monochrome technique is actually for a brand new fun Copic challenge called Color Me Copic with a great group of designers on the team;  AND, the sketch used is for the Kenny K’s Krafty Girlz challenge, which also incudes a super talented group of ladies!  


Thanks for visiting AGAIN today!    Hope you have a great weekend!!

Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ Stitching


Happy Friday!!    Time for a new challenge at Phindy’s Place Challenge blog ~  STITCHING!!!

Soooo, if you visited here before, you may know that I have some real issues with a certain item called the dreaded sewing machine!   My DS (sister) is a pro at sewing, she’s won awards and makes the most awesome quilts and embroidered items. . . which makes it even more depressing that I can’t sew a straight line to save my soul!    When I read about our challenge for this week at Phindy’s Place, I was bound and determined to sew with this machine!!     I was amazed that I actually did it!!    So, this picture is for my sister  . . .  hopefully she’ll be reading my blog post today!!    


Now for the card!   Some of you may also have heard about my recent happy news ( See pic of new grandbaby!  )   so I couldn’t resist this adorable Big Sister at Work image by Phindy!    



The image was stamped three times – once onto the main background shape, the second one was colored and cut out and the third one of just the book ~ which was cut out and popped up.   Since it doesn’t show too well in these photos above,  here’s one last photo to show you a little of the dimension of the little book.      



Thanks for stopping in today!   And thank you for your always wonderful and inspiring comments ~  I truly appreciate them and YOU!   Happy weekend.
