Angel Marcie...

I apologize for the long lag in posting - dealing with some family medical issues and my time has not been my own and likely won't be for a while, but I am going to try to be better, I promise. Lots of things to show - little time to type!

We can all use more angels in our lives! This is Angel Marcie from La-La Land Crafts and I really like her. She was one of the cards for a Christmas class this month (everyone likes making cards all year). I decided to use some non-traditional colors. She is colored with Copics and then mounted to a cocoa brown card, adorned with some pinky-orange layers and trim.

Have a wonderful day!

February Calendar Cat...

It's almost Valentine's Day and I decided to post the February cat calendar page in honor of the holiday. Little Bucle is peering around a red package - something she loves to do - hide behind things then poke her little head around. I cut the picture out with a Spellbinders heart die and added a scallop heart under it. Then I punched a bunch of hearts out of pink and red and added them to the layers.

Stay warm for the rest of the day - that cold air from Canada is coming down and making it quite brisk here in the Northeast!

Mimi the Mermaid...

Little Mimi is a mermaid and swimming with some of her little friends! It's always nice to think about sun and warm in the middle of winter - even though our winter here has been pretty wimpy. I stamped Mimi with black Memento ink and colored her with Copic markers - lots of them! I layered her to some Tink Pink Bazzill cardstock, then to some BoBunny Double Dot. I pie cut out the waves and added those over the top, then stamped a happy birthday saying and punched it out with a circle punch. Add some little punched flowers to make it girly!

Thanks for coming by!

In Honor of the Super Bowl...

Yes, it is Super Bowl Sunday here in the US - a day when most people's attention turns to the big game - this year in Indianapolis. I made this quick card in honor of the big game using Football Riley as my main image. He is colored with Copic markers and cut out with a Spellbinders circle and then layered with a couple more Spellbinders dies. I used a vanished cardstock from Bazzill as the main background and cut out and layered a couple football images from a DP from TaDa called "Game On." Those are popped up with foam tape. So, whomever your team is for tonight - ENJOY THE GAME!

Joe Cool...

I used Jen Del Muro's February Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) to create this card with Snoopy as Joe Cool. I do love the Snoopy images - we all grew up with Peanuts and they always make fun cards. You can view Jen's sketches on her website: Join along and link your creation to her site. I stamped Snoopy with black Memento ink and colored with Copics. I added a black circle to accent it and then a blue layer with another Spellbinders die. The base card is Bazzill with DP from Kaiser. I added the 2-color stars (also a Spellbinders die) down the edge. A fun card that also works for guys.

Thanks for stopping by!

January Calendar Cat!

I forgot to post the January 2012 calendar cat! Dora sent me an email to remind me that is "her month" and I had better get it posted. Someone brought the stamp that says "The dog did it!" to the last yard sale and I scoffed it up - knowing exactly what I would use it for. So I got Dora to lie on the floor with some crayons in front of her some time ago and thought that the saying was perfect for this!

More CHA stuff later - we're packing for the airport!
