SBS DT: Brighter Days for Friends: Vicky

Hi Everyone,

How are you doing today? Hope all is well and some friends here I know have health issues or feel sort of gloomy for personal reasons... I know that sometimes in the crafting community some can get a little dramatic but in most cases most people are here to uplift your spirits to let you know that you did a really good job, to check on you, to be  your friend, to appreciate you... and many more positive things. We have many friends like that even if we've never met in person. I had a special friend, BreAnn that if you follow me on my blog then you'd know she was very special to me as well as Tanja, Corinne and few more. It is important to let them know you care for them and appreciate their friendship as often as you can... you never know when they may be called to leave this Earth....

Anyway, today we are going to cheer up our bloggy friend Craftin' Vicky. I first met her during our DT time at, although there is no more DT there, the blog was left open for all to enjoy the work we all created. JDE was my first DT and I believe it was hers too. Vicky has always been ready to join on in all projects, always eager to learn and participate in as many projects or teams. I see her as a Vampire... girl you don't sleep... lol or simply put Super Craftin' Vicky. LOL

So here is my card. I hope you like it too Vicky and I hope that the girls and I have "lifted up" your spirits. Have a blessed day :)

I colored Vicky with Copics. I chose a bright bright pink for her dress and umbrella. 
I fussy cut  some DCWV papers from the Street Lace stack
and colored the butterfly and flowers to match. 

Slight close-up. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Slinky Tart DT: Golden State of Mind

Hey Everyone!

Back with a DT project for Slinky Tart today I'm using We Like It Dirty.

So I've had this image since last year and I even had her printed out and hadn't even colored her up... shame on me. Finally I get to do a project with her and I wanted a sun kissed skin, with golden hair and highlights. I wanted everything to represent The Golden State. I found this stamp set called California Lovin from and Dude, they ship super fast!!! Well besides that they are in California like me... there are many others that won't ship as fast as they did. LOL Just sayin...

So it's not that we like it dirty in that kind of way... but we are in a drought so we need to conserve water... but we're supposed to be good a recycling it too... but either way I love the weather here especially the Bay Area but I actually wouldn't mind a little bit more sun like in the Central Valley and this image went well with the theme if all of us had bodies like her and the weather is nice enough to wear something like that while we washed our cars..... hmmmmm.... LOL.

Anyway, on to the card. Here it is:

Made her into a Clean And Simple card
Used Copic markers to color her up
I used Martha Stewart embossing 
for the gold letters, state and stars

Well I hope you like it. I had loads of fun
coloring her up but I do need to buy some refills. 

Thanks for stopping by,

SBS DT: Are You Feeling Lucky?

Hey Everyone!

So back today with a fun and super cute image. her name is Kiss For Luck. You can find her here:

Ever since Betty came up with the drawing and showed us I knew what I wanted to do with her. She was so much fun to color. I colored up another one... well just the skin LOL but I finished this one. I still think I need to add a few butterflies here and there... but maybe I'll do it with the other image I started.

Look! Isn't she so cute?

You can find her here:

I  used Copic markers to color her. 
The Shamrock is from Silhouette store but I cut it up to make it look more wild, 
the flowers I just hand cut myself then shaped and colored them. 
The paper is from My Mind's Eye and I believe this one my crafty buddy
Roz sent me in a swap a couple of years ago. 

Here is a close up. 

I tried to give her that pucker up/ kissy face. I colored a rainbow behind her since
I knew I might mess up fussy cutting the thin frame but it works.
