Sweet Baby

Hello crafting friends!

I have a cute little card to share today.  Once again I'm posting in the dark so pictures are a little dim.

 The image is 'Tiny and Supersaurus' (with only Supersaurus showing) by Sherri Baldy and coloured in with copics.  Isn't it just the cutest!  I don't have many flowers to play with so I have rolled some up with paper to match the card.  The bow is made from sheer patterned organza ribbon.
Dies used:
Quickutz nesting circles
Quickutz Antique Doily

The tags are from the Creative Tags stamp set by Inspired by Stamping.  The sentiments on the tags are also from the same set and reads "sweet baby" and "big hugs!".  Love this stamp set.

That is all from me today.  Hope you all like my card.
Thanks for visiting my little blog.

You, Me & Coffee

Okay, it's been forever since my last post.  Haven't had time to do much crafting lately, but over the last week I have been working on and off on this card with whatever time I can spare.

The image is 'Latte' by Krista Smith.  The backing paper is a digital paper with tiny white polka dots (I have forgotten where I got it from).  I have typed and printed a bunch of coffee names on the digital paper to create the background.  The cityscape is cut out from a DP by Cre8tive (from the Street Life pack)

The sentiment is also typed and printed on the digital paper.  It reads You, Me & Coffee {the perfect blend}.

A close up of Latte.  She was coloured with copics and tiny rhinestones for her earrings.

So glad I finally completed this card.  Would love to jump out of my hectic world and into the crafty one for a few days.  Hopefully I will be able to manage a little more crafting in the coming weeks.
Hope you liked my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Would like to put this card to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge - Colour - I used copic markers to colour my image and used distressed ink to sponge the edges of the backing paper.
Sweet Stampin - Buttons, Bows, and Polka dots. - A bow made of twine, a blue heart button and the digital paper used is covered in tiny polka dots.  Hope you can see it.

Bunny Zoe's Crafts April Challenge - favourite colour combo - My current favourite colour combo is tan and blue.

Quickie Birthday card

Hello Blogland!

It's been forever since I got to sit down and make a card.  I've been away from home and couldn't take my craft table with me..sob.  But I'm back now and could not wait another moment to play....even though I sort of don't have much time.  So I very quickly put together this little card.

It's been over 2 weeks since I've crafted and tonight just jumped right in with my copics and coloured this cute little bear without warming up.  As you can see, the colouring is a little shonky.  But I had to do it.  Was getting withdrawal symptoms.  The image is from Crafty Sentiment Designs.  I was so strapped for time that I didn't even print out a proper birthday sentiment for my card and just wrote it in freehand.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  I promise to sit down and spend a little more time on my next card and post.
