Don't Go Bacon My Heart


This was a fun little quickie card.  I couldn't resist the image.  The digi is by Craftin' Desert Divas and colored with Copic markers.  I think I'll pass up the challenges on this one.  I'm back in homeschool mode for the summer.  Teaching math and German.  That's enough to make life interesting!

Happy Father's Day


 This is my DT entry for QKR Stampede's Friday Challenge Anything Goes.  I used QKR images All Tied Up and Tie Border.  I really enjoyed making this card.  This guy makes me smile! It is colored with Copics. I used burlap on the front of the card.  I have had it for years.  I think I will use it more often.  I really like the look.  I used a Paula Dean photo corner stamp to make all the corners.

Christmas Lights

This is my DT entry for The Holly and the Ivy Christmas Challenge.  I used an image from A Day for Daisies and colored it with Copic markers.  The paper was a leftove scrap from my stash as is the ribbon.  I guess this was a use up the leftovers card.

Sunflowers


 This card is my mid-month design team entry for A Place to Start.  I used an image from Power Poppy.  I absolutely love their images.  I think I have purchased almost all their digital stamps.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and used mineral spirits for blending.  I also used Tim Holtz distressed inks to distress the edge of the paper.The papers are from Stampin' Up.  I think it's time to hit their catalog again to see what's new.

For a Sweet Friend


I made this card for a very sweet friend.  I am truly having a blast learning how to use my pencils.  I can't believe I let them sit there for ten years.  My Copics are going to get lonely.  This is an image from Aurora Wings.  I went on a little digi buying binge recently and she was one of my finds.  I just got a new set of Prismacolor Portrait pencils for Mother's Day.  They came with directions on how to do skin.  I actually started out the skin with a cream and pale yellow.  Who would have thought?  Anyways, back to business.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.  The cardstock and ribbon are actually close in color to her dress.  You wouldn't know that from the picture.
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Sunburned Cutie


 This is my DT entry for Creations in Pink.  The image is by our sponsor A Time for Tea.  She is colored with Copics.  I called her Sunburned Cutie because I accidentally picked up the wrong marker to color her face.  Whoops!  What adventures we can have while making cards.  I really 
did not feel like printing her off again because I had already finished the paper piecing.  
So a sunburn it is!  I applied a spray glue to the doily and added glitter. 
 It looks really good, but doesn't show well in the photo.

Tri-Fold Card

This is the first tri-fold card that I have attempted.  I didn't particularly enjoy making this card fold.     This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored it with Copic markers and did a small amount of the shading with Prismacolor pencils.  I colored this image a few months ago.  I had made them blondes.  When I finally decided to use the image I wanted to make brown hair so I re-shaded  with a brown pencil.   The papers are from Stampin' Up.  I used a Spellbinder's die to cut out the image.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the edges.The sentiment is from Lili  of the Valley.  I put a ribbon around the card to tie it shut.

Li'l Cowboy


 Today is a heck of a day.  I went to see the surgeon yesterday and he manipulated my knee quite a bit.  Boy, is it painful today.  A good day to sit and craft.  This is one of my favorite Mo's images.  Although, to be truthful, there are many, many Mo's images that I consider favorites.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  My intention was to use pencils again.  Ha, not happening.  It was a disaster.  Sometimes things go right, sometimes they don't!

Angel and Duckling


This is my second attempt using my pencils and mineral spirits.  I am enjoying learning something new.  This image is by Morgan Fitzsimons.  I have quite an extensive collection of her images. I find most of her images quite challenging and I enjoy that.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  The paper is from K & Company. The first time I attempted this image I ended up putting it in the circular file.  I like this one better.

 I really enjoyed making this card for the QKR Stampede challenge this week.  The image is Praying Hands by QKR.  I have seen this image for so long and have always loved it.  I finally decided to give it a try.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I found the verse on Pinterest.
