There's an Angel Among Us...

... Ivy Angel that is! :) This is one of Jen's super adorable digis from her, Tis the Season line. There is a whole slew of cuteness in this set. I would encourage you to go check them out! :)

When I set out to make this easel card I wanted Ivy to appear to be floating and angelic looking. I did this by popping her up with strips of cs and making her gown light and airy looking. If you click on the picture you will see that I used two different color families. I used C1 for the over-all gown and outlined it in Vooo. I used Shimmerz butter cream on her wings. The flame on her candle my Spica pens were used; trying to give it a "glow-y" look. For her halo all I had was regular gold art glitter that I glued on speck by speck. Lastly for the snowflakes I printed out some snowflake outlines chalked them and then colored them with my Sakura Souffle pens and punched them with my 1" punch. Last night I was wishing that I had those snowflake die cuts, but I didn't so I had to improvise.

Here is a side view for you to see.

And lastly here is the "flat" view.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to let me know.

My Guy Autumn

Hello everyone!

Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving?? I know I cant! I have not even prepared in the least bit let alone Christmas. Can I tell ya a secret??? I'm SO ready to put up my Christmas tree! Ha! Yes!! I have not took the plunge yet, but I see it happening really soon! When do you put your tree up? You may be thinking, "girl Thanksgiving hasn't even arrived", but let me tell you that I know of a few people who put their tree up on Halloween! WASSUP with that?!?!?! Did I just really say, "Wassup"?

Let me tell ya, I fought myself and fought myself to use this sentiment on my card today. I'm so not the "wassup", "yo", or "wudup" type of girl, but for whatever reason I felt this sentiment was fitting for My Guy Autumn. What do you think?

Isn't he a doll? I really liked the way he came out.

Well, I will not keep you here any longer. I really do appreciate each of your visits here and being so patient with me on my journey! Much love to you all!

If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

Welcome Autumn Anya

Here is a sweet little digi that I purchased from the Greeting Farm.

Last night I decided to work with a sketch instead of "winging" it. Ha! I'm a slow learner. Better late than never is what they say.

Here she is sporting her cute Winter wardrobe! After making this card I "picked" it to death! You know all the, "I should of done this and I should of done that". Welp, there will be a next time! You will see her again real soon I'm sure. :)

Hope you all stay nice and warm in your neck of the woods! Happy crafting!!!

Recipe: Papertrey CS, Copics, Sakura Souffle ink, Pebbles Metalic chalk.

Inkin Isabella

Good afternoon ladies! Hope each of you are having a fabulous week!

Here is a super sweet digi image that I received from Die Cuts R Us. Her name is Inkin Isabella. She was a ton of fun to color. I love this girls shoes, which I used my Spica's on; so they are "blingy"! :)

Christmas is just around the corner and what better gift to give the crafter in your life then a cute little gift bag or box with this fun image popped up on it? You can fill the box/bag with some cute little embellies or a gift certificate that you can also find at the DCRU store!

Why not head on over to Claudia's, the amazing owner, shop and take a peek at all the great deals going on! You really dont need to wait for a sale to visit her shop, because her prices beat any other store that I've personally found online.
