30-Day Coloring Challenge: Day 9 – Spring blessings


Hello! I can’t believe I managed to fit coloring in today.  I am really happy I did and each day, I know this will become a habit that will really take me to the next level of crafting. Day 9 – check!

day9aThis is a digital image from A Day For Daisies stamps. They have the most whimsical stamps that are just flat out dreamy to color.  This one I have been wanting to color and never got around to it. My  color palette was inspired by a paper pad from the dollar bin at Target.

day9bWhenever I have pretty paper that I use with dies or my Silhouette, I take the scraps and punch a bunch of butterflies, hearts and little flowers and put them in little bags. The butterflies came in handy for this card. I added some Queen&Co pearls to the top of the butterflies for more shine.

Definitely will be making another one of these.

Happy coloring! See you tomorrow!


30-Day Coloring Challenge: Day 6: A Cup of Thanks

challenge_graphic-4-revisedToday was a bit of a struggle to get to my coloring. Appointments and errands filled a large part of my day and then homework help when the boys came home. So I had to squeeze this in before dinner time.


This is an old stamp from Flourishes. They are no longer in business but they had the most beautiful stamps. Again I love teacups so thought in honor of all the cups I have had this winter, I might color up a little cup of tea.  I was rushing so much that  I didn’t color tea in the cup!  But if it was my cup that’s how mine would look (almost empty).

I used washi tape on this quick card and realized that it wrinkled on the bottom. Well that just gives this card some character right?

I’m just happy that although not my best, I did squeeze in 20 minutes of coloring today.

Have fun coloring!


30-Day Coloring Challenge: Day 2 – BEEn missing you!


Hello and here we are at day two. Today I actually have a finished product. I used one of Mo’ Digital Pencil’s images. I think her images are so amazing and this little bee girl is so stinking cute.

day2aI used Stella clear for the wings and tapped the copic lightly to give a furry effect on her tummy.  Yes, that is my tea cup, way too close to my work. I have a standing policy in my craft room – no drinks on my craft table ever.  Obviously, I was feeling daring today.

day2bOk so I think I have officially made Leao think I’m nuts, because I keep saving all of the plastic like this above to use on cards when I make shaker cards or in this instance a window. See honey, I am using it!

day2cI got this cute cut file for my Silhouette from Birds Cards. As soon as I saw it, I knew I could make it with this digi. So today I tried it and really like how it came out.

day2dYou can’t see in the photo but I put the plastic behind the opening behind her head.  I am definitely going to make more of these.

Happy coloring!!


Card: Birthday Kisses Card

bernibdaycard1One would think that being that I own an online craft store selling cards and other paper goodies that I would have a great stash of Birthday cards available to send to friends and family.  Well I hate to bust that illusion out to space but, that is not my reality.  I tend to wait until last minute and put together something. A little stressful yes but that’s what I do.


So yesterday (on my sister’s birthday) I made her this card.  I used Simple Stories ‘Happy Day’ paper that I have horded like forever. I love the rich somewhat muted colors. They make me think of fall.  I added some bling and colored up a Saturated Canary digi.  I added a little Wink of Stella to her lips to give her the lip gloss look. I like using my digis in multiple ways. This one was meant to be a Valentine image but I thought it would be cute as a birthday so I added the words in Silhouette and print and cut her out.

bernibdaycard3I pulled out a kraft envelope from my stash (Thank you Ashley for getting me to order bulk with you!) and sized the card accordingly.

bernibdaycard4The inside I used coordinating paper and left it simple so I can write a clever message in it. Possibly begging for forgiveness for m tardiness.

Well I am off to do some more crafting. I hope you all have a blessed day!
