~ Watermelon Ellie ~

Hi everyone,

Sorry it has been a while since I posted, but I went back to Indiana to help my mom take care of a few things.  You gotta help your momma, right?!  While we were away, a water leak decided to occur in my craft room right over my desk, ugh, what a mess.  Luckily our daughter caught it in time before it became a total nightmare.  Coloring this adorable image, Watermelon Ellie, from The Paper Nest Dolls is just what I needed to take me away from dealing with the fact that my craft room is in total disarray along with the family room and dining room which is where everything is going to be for the next few weeks.  The Paper Nest has the cutest images!  Watermelon Ellie was so much fun to color and I look forward to coloring more of these cuties!!!

~ Jingle All The Way ~

Hello my fellow stampin' peeps,

Can you believe it's time to start making Christmas cards already?!  I decided to use this adorable stamp from Make It Crafty called Floppy and color him using non-traditional Christmas colors.  I love how these colors really make the image POP!

~ Scaredy Cat ~ Who Me??? ~

We are excited to announce the third release from By DIEzyne Dies and Doodle Dragon.  We are celebrating this weekend on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group and C.C. Designs Facebook Group.
We are kicking everything off with a really big blog hop! 

This Scaredy Cat stamp from Doodle Dragon Studios just cracks me up!  He reminds me of our cat, Tiger, who is scared of everything including his own shadow!  So I thought it would be funny to make a scene card where the cat is afraid of the mice; which would absolutely be our Tiger if he ever saw mice in real life!  I used the Pierced Half Circle die set from By DIEzyne to make this easel card and curtains and then used my Tonic Distress Tool to make it look like the cat clawed up the curtains when he saw the mice.  I ended up having to color the image after our daughter's cat, Lola, since Tiger is an orange tabby and his coloring didn't match the paper I chose to use (sorry Tiger).  I colored Scaredy Cat exactly like Lola right down to the pads of her paws.  She has the cutest pink and black padded paws!  However, she isn't scared of any critter.  She is even our resident scorpion killer so I don't think mice would scare her one bit!  Scaredy Cat is on an Action Wobble so when the card moves so does the cat!  I hope this card gives you a chuckle and brightens up your day!

To see all the goodies I used to make this card see below.
