Oh What Fun!

Oh What Fun it is to find such a cute image all dressed in PINK playing in the snow with her own little snowman!

That's what I have today to share with you - This new image from Whimsy Stamps by CC Designs named Snowy .  
As with all digital images she can be flipped, rotated or resized to fit your card size needs.  

After printing her on 110# card stock, I used Copic markers to color her outfit in Pink and Grey's with cute brown boots to match her hair coloring.  I used several miscellaneous dies to make the background snowy hills and dome shaped sky with large sparkly snowflakes falling.  The sentiment 'Oh What Fun!' was taken from the Whimsy Clear stamp Collections "Oh What Fun" (SWSD244) by Deb Davis. The completed project is mounted on a white 5 1/2" square card base ready for mailing. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will click over to Whimsy Stamps and see what's new there, especially in the digital product line.

Where's the Mistletoe?

One of the special card challenges this month was in honor of a special friend who loved Gone With the Wind.  Of course not many of our card groups have stamps for that particular theme and we're thankful that google could provide a few free images. 

Since it's close to Christmas, I decided to add a little twist to my card, especially since my colored image got lost on my desk for several hours...wonder what these two were doing?!? 

It was a fun image to color and I have to admit, I sure wouldn't have touched all those 6 shades of Copic red a year ago. (Thanks again to my Canadian mentor.)   

Thanks for stopping by to enjoy a little humor from an old familiar classic story.

Here's to Laughing...

My little group of ex-working girlfriends gathered last weekend to celebrate an upcoming birthday (11/18) for the last of our group that is still working full time.  As you know it gets harder to coordinate time together when you retire, move, or just start other interest. But our girlfriend time is so very important!  

For her birthday I wanted one of Art Impressions funny friends card - so I picked Live Laugh Love (AiCS15). Here's what I came up with and the instructions follow for those that would like to make one on their own.

Art Impressions stamps designer, Bonnie Krebs, captures women who seem to fit the women we all know.  So many of our friends could easily be found in this stamp.  It may have been months since we gathered, but we picked right back up and the conversation was filled with a lot of laughter and sharing.

The AI Stamp was quite large so I had to offset the standing lady so that it would all fit on the standard 6 x 6' card base.  The ladies were Copic marker colored and mounted on red card stock mat before mounting on the purple card base.  The sentiment is from the same package and is die cut and mounted from a coordinating scrap paper along with a Happy Birthday fish tail tag. I added several deep purple enamel dots to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today - Give Ms West Virginia a big Happy Birthday hug if you happen to see her.
