Autumn Hues

Hello and welcome to my  blog, comments are most welcome.

This is my DT inspiration card for the new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons, the theme this time is Autumn Hues.  This was an easy theme for me as it's my favorite time of year and I love all the colors of Autumn.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Tiffaney Doodles where you will discover a wonderful selection of images.

I hope you'll come and join the challenge sharing your creations with us as I get inspired visiting your blogs.

I took a sheet of cs and sponged with various Distress inks (peeling paint, firebrick red and wild honey), sprayed with gold  Shimmer spray which isn't showing very well if at all in the picture, the leaves are punched with a Marvy, dragon fly is from a Sissix die, sentiment is from Great Impressions, made a bow with hemp yarn, for the life of me can't remember what the background fabric is called I've had it for years.

Under the Sea Christmas 2

This is my DT inspiration for the new challenge at the Lacy Sunshine challenge blog with the theme Under the Sea Christmas.

My project is a gift bag where I'm using I'm using Shelby's Sea Mint from the  Lacy Sunshine online store.
Colored with Copics, added Flower Soft Fine Sand and a little Distress glitter, some pearls, crystals,  I've also colored the ribbon with my #46 Copic and added glitter to it, the snowflake is from a Martha Stewart's punch.

  In the lower photo I'm using a brand new image called Anenome as a gift tag, colored with copics. She is a very new image so I'm not sure if you'll find her in the shop yet at the Lacy Sunshine online store.

I hope you will come on over and join in this challenge sharing your creations with us as we so enjoy seeing them and maybe this time you will be one of  the winners.
If  you visit her online shop you will find a wonderful collection and fabulous variety of Heather Valentin's the (artist and owner)  creative images, Shimmer Sprays, digital papers along with lots  of creative inspiration.

Little Ballerina's

Hello thank you for stopping by today.  This is the 2nd challenge with the theme "Girls, Girls, Girls beginning at the Julia Spiri's challenge blog.

I fell in love with her wonderful images the first time I saw them they are just so adorable and charming.  I'm using Little Ballerina, I flipped one to have them facing each other, then did the fussy cut of them to have them a little more of a 3D. You can find her and many more charming characters with such lovely details at Julia Spiri's Etsy store.

 I hope you will come and join in this challenge to share your creations with us.  There is also Julia's Facebook group where there is a monthly challenge.

Rather than a card I did a little wall hanging for a little girl's room who takes ballet.  Colored with Copics, layers of cs, music notes punched, embossed with Sissix musical note embossing folder, added some gems, ribbon, lace and the background is sprayed with various colors of Shimmer Spray by Lacy Sunshine.
