Love Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik Misty Moon with CTMH Something Magical Workshop Your Way


Hello friends!  I hope everyone is having time to craft and having fun doing it.  I am the happiest when I can create something for someone I love.  I wish I was able to craft day and night; but for some reason, I have to sleep, do laundry, cook, clean house, etc.  LOL!

I have been buying Ching-Chou Kuik gray-scale digis for a couple months now; and hadn't tried coloring one of them yet.  I decided the newest one was so perfect that I had to try it.  I was pleasantly surprised that it was easier than regular coloring.  It was easier for me than when I color a normal image without the gray-scale look.  I am not sure why; unless it shows more shadows; therefore allowing you to make more mistakes.  LOL!  Has anyone else colored CCK gray-scale images and found them to be easier to color?  

I made this card for my daughter; because it made me think about her.  Jenny is a hair dresser and colors a lot of hair.  I have always been impressed over her coloring her own hair over the years; even when she was a teenager and it wasn't approved by her mother.  LOL!  The only way I will ever color hair is with digis.  LOL!  

I made this card thinking of how much I love my daughter; and how proud I am of her.  She has had a difficult adult life; but she perseveres through every challenge.  It may be with lots of upset; but she is an amazing woman, mother, daughter and fabulous friend.  I know she will feel my love for her when she receives it.  

I felt like this image was both magical and mystical; and the sentiment needed to use the word magical in it.  LOL!    This gorgeous image is on sale right now through Feb. 17th; so get yours now.  You receive two of these images.  I used the lighter one for this creation.

Calendar Card Using CTMH Chelsea Gardens Paper, with Stamp and Dies

Hello friends!   It has cooled down here to the 60's; which is cold for Southern CA.  I like the cooler temperatures; spring like weather; but not the cold weather many of you are having across the US.

I had created my sister, Alice a calendar card; then realized I couldn't give it away.  I needed to keep it for me.  LOL!  I gave her other options; so this is the calendar card that I have created for her now.  She was just as excited to get this one; as it takes up less space; which is what she needed to be able to display it for the year. 

I have created several of these calendar cards; and probably have a few more to create.  LOL!  I found the general instructions from a Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers; after I had already bought some little calendars from Ebay.  This tutorial provides you a link for a free calendar that you can print and cut yourself.  I used the calendar on five calendar cards that were white backgrounds so far.  Everyone has loved them.

CTMH Chelsea Gardens Paper, Stamp and Thin Cuts
Thin Cuts are no longer available; but the stamp set is available
You just need to fussy cut them; which isn't hard with these images.

Love Calendar Card Using Conie Fong Susie Sunshine with Balloon Right Digi

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is doing well.  I have been having all sorts of pain in muscles and joints; but worse in my left arm for almost two weeks; and don't have a clue what is causing it.  Hopefully it stops soon.  

My friend Vannessa Hasty created several calendar cards over the past couple years and she peaked my interest in creating some for my family and friends.  I found the general instructions from a Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers; after I had already bought some little calendars from Ebay.  This tutorial provides you a link for a free calendar that you can print and cut yourself.  I used it on another three calendar cards that were white backgrounds.  These colors are very hard to photograph; but I did the best I could.

This is another fabulous new image called Conie Fong "Susie Sunshine With Balloon Right"It has 4 images with it.  One with balloon, one without balloon with each of these facing both right and left.  Stay tuned the other version coming later this month.
