November challenge card more than 1 image

Welcome back to my blog!
Great to see you again, I have been a wee bit quite the last couple weeks sorry about that. I had an injury to my shoulder and had a hard time using my arms tons, you don't really realize how much you depend on certain body parts until they don't function properly. LOL
So I'm much better and have been able to craft again so I have created this super  cute card using a couple of Whimsy images.
A couple of images cause the
  challenge this month at Whimsy is more than one image.
 This challenge was a little harder than it seems, to put 2 images on a card and make them compliment each other. I think I was able to accomplish this using 2 wonderful digital images from StampArt Design. The first Image is called Owl-ways thinking of you this includes the sentiment. The second image is Owl-Ways Winter. Its hard to see in the photo but I popped up the front owl sitting on the branches to give my card some dimension.
So make sure you make a creation and put it on the Challenge this month at Whimsy for a chance to win some great digital images from the Whimsy Store. Or at least hop over by clicking here to check out the wonderful creations from the digital designers.

A wee bit closer
Thank you for stopping by
Have a simply Fabulous day!

oct 23 autumn crow

Good Morning!

It's a crisp fall morning here but the days have been pretty nice so far. Sure can't complain the days seem to warm up in the afternoon. I haven't posted in a while sorry about that, sometimes things just happen in life that make it hard to do the things that you love and have a passion for.
 I truly love being able to loose myself in artistic things, cause those artistic things consume you for the good and give you a creative outlet. Your mind just focuses on what you are doing or creating. I have poured myself into that aspect of my life last couple nights so I will be sharing some of my creations a lot in the next little bit.
Here is my newest card, using a adorable image from Whimsy Stamps designer Miss Rach. This image is called Autumn Crow.
I made this card in all the fall colors and gave it a Halloween theme cause the little ones will be out trick or treating next week already.

A bit closer look at the colored image, I never did it as black as crows are but I didn't want to loose the detail in the image.

Thank you for stopping by:

Remember to give yourself some you time today, loose yourself in a couple minutes of what brings you joy.

Snow Friends

Hi good to see you!
Just finished this cute card and thought that I would share it with you. I know its a winter image but I guess given that last week here in Alberta we had a lot of snow come down. It was crazy, for sure way to early for that silly stuff. We definitely need to have fall cause that white stuff stays around far to long anyways. 
I made this card using an image from called Snow Friends from designer Kathryne at 
StampArt Designs from Whimsy Stamps. This file also comes with a bonus of a sentiment file.
 I colored him using copic markers and added a lot of snow flakes and the ribbon to give a whimsical look. Kind of magical like a snow fall can be.
I hope that this inspires you to loose yourself in the magic of creation.

A bit closer look at the image colored.

I love being able to share my creations with you.
Have a magical day.

sept 10 inspiration card

Good morning!

Well we have been getting snow already ugggghhh! Really way to early for that stuff, especially after the mountains of snow that we were blessed with last year. Do you sense a little sarcasm well you interpreted that one right. I've happened to go away for a few days and well the amounts of snow that parts of Alberta is getting is crazy. Where I am it's just a bit windy with a bit of a chill to it but no snow.  This is the time of year where the leaves are suppose to be most majestic in autumn colors and canning fruit and jams are suppose to begin. Well this year not so much..... but it made me think of this super cute image that I colored but never got around to creating a card with so... well.. here is my creation.
I used this wonderful image from Lia Stampz vintage collection called Strawberry Girl from Whimsy Stamps. I decided to follow along with the colors of the strawberries and autumn and  make it red. I also added some glossy accents to her glasses to give it that shine, also a little bit on the strawberry seeds.

a closer look at the vintage girl.

Have a fantastic day!
