Apple of my eye :)

Woohoo I am so excited, today starts a new theme with Paper Issues!!
Think back to school my lovelies!
For this awesome theme, I colored Teacher's Pet Tia from Some Odd Girl with my copic markers. I also finally broke into my Crate Paper Farmhouse paper, added in some twine from The Twinery and cut out part of the sentiment with my Cameo Silhouette.
See that cute apple on the inside of the card?
I originally wanted that on the outside of the card, but it just wasn't working there.

We're hopping with Paper Issues.. check out what the other lovely peeps made for your viewing pleasure.. and for a chance to win this fab Fit Kit prize!

Happy Friday my blogging buddies!
I am so thankful the weekend is here. Hoping to catch up on some much needed sleep Saturday morning.

The Summer Challenge that is happening RIGHT NOW on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog will end Tuesday at 12am.  So, if you haven't gotten your creations uploaded don't forget...we can't wait to see what you create! Also, there is some important news Melissa is sharing there in regards to the Tinkers.. check it out, as well as the fabulous inspiration the rockin DT has shared to spark your creativity this weekend!

I am excited to share my sweet little Tiddly Inks Happy Bee Day card with you.
There comes several fabulous extras with this digital stamp, but I forgot all about them when it came time to put my card together I totally spaced. ;)
I'm not gonna lie, the week has been stressful as all get out and I'm really taking today to focus on all my blessings. It makes me happy to do so, and helps me feel a lot better too. :)
Hope your weekend is shiny and happy!

Peacock Kaylee in the house!

Good morning my friends, it's Steak-N-Gravy Thursday as my daughter Samantha likes to call it. She so looks forward to this day because school lunch consists of pork steak, gravy and mashed potatoes, and a roll. her absolute favorite day to eat at School!!

You'll have to forgive my photog skills, I was using my daughters Camera, and could not get a good pic with these releases this week. My 18-55mm lens on my camera died so now I'm left with only a 75-300 lens and the 50mm lens... gotta put the 50mm lens on and get used to taking pics with it again. :/

I've jabbered enough, ready to meet the exquisite

Peacock Kaylee?

When I colored this image the first thing I did was google peacock feathers, as I wanted to gain a good understanding of how they were colored. And wouldn't you know it, my Cameo had a peacock feather in the store, so I cut that out for my card. 

I printed Peacock Kaylee out on Copic Xpress it Paper and colored her with my Copics.
Skin: YR0000, YR000, YR00, YR01, R21
Feathers/Clothes/EverythingElse (sorry, must have been too excited to actually keep the details straight on where I used these colors, lol)
B26, B29, FBG2, B00, B02, B04
FYG2, YG06, YG09
FY1, YR21, YR23, RV32, V20

Go check out the stellar creations the other Odd Girls made with Peacock Kaylee on the SOG Blog!!!
Hope your days is beautiful!

Unicorn Mae

It's Wonderful Wednesday!
The halfway mark in the week, gaining momentum for the weekend ahead!

All the kids had a great first day of School yesterday, and Katelyn already had a pile of homework... and so the fun begins! :)

Ready to meet the mystical Unicorn Mae?

She is my favorite from the new releases...

I had a hard time getting a nice photograph of this card, but I cut it out on my Cameo Silhouette using a couple of design files from the online Silhouette Store.
 I loved the wish big cut file, and I used one of my copics to slightly outline the sentiment.
Here is the card opened up.

So, what do you think?
Are you loving the new releases this week?
 What has been your favorite so far?

Meet Kitty Tia

Good Morning friends!
Tomorrow starts the first day of School here and I am just not ready for it this year. The early mornings, packing lunches, making sure everyone has brushed their teeth and hair, all whilst trying to feed them and gulp down 12 oz of coffee to wake me up. :)

On a fun note Some Odd Girl has 4 new digital stamp releases this week!
I love them all sooo much.. each one holds a special place in my SOG heart.

Good morning friends and welcome Oddies to our first Blog Hop of the new term! We are thrilled to be showing you some new sets that I really think you’re going to enjoy.

Here's the hop order.
Some Odd Girl Blog
Anna Maria
Leah C<——————-YOU ARE HERE

Be sure to leave a comment on each stop as we’ll be giving away our Preppy Pups 4×6 set AND our Kaylee’s Closet Wardrobe set!

Kaylee's Closet and Preppy pups were debuted at CHA-S this year, and were a big hit!!
I adore Kaylee's Closet, because.. well, it's FUN! This is the base set, and there are so many clothing/accessory choices to create with. Then there is the decision... color or paper piece? There's no wrong answer here folks.. I LOVE this set! LOVE it!!
:) :) :)
 Preppy pups have their own magic going on as well.. check out the cuteness with these pups... add in the party hat and sentiments.. you can create quite a bit with these little darlings!

I decided to share with you a little card out of a set I made with preppy pups using the pug! I tried to color this little cutie similar to my pug, Ooxie.
Here's my Ooxie standing up
pretty close, right?
ok.. not really, but it still makes me smile from ear to ear. :)

You have thru the end of the day on August 5 (midnight EST) to hippity hop to each stop and leave some love. Next week we’ll announce the hop winners on the SOG Blog.

Next on the hop is Indah!!

Exciting news!!

Good morning friends!
I know I have been a bit scarce here the last couple of weeks.
Adding a new person to the home takes time to adjust. I really need to work on my time management skills, as the one thing I can't seem to keep up with is my crafting/posting right now. With that said, I have most awesome news to share...
Digital stamp Super Tobie from Some Odd Girl

I am staying on another term with Some Odd Girl!!!
Go check out the blog to see who else has made the team, I'm so excited to be working with such talented people!

Are you signed up for the SOG newsletter or Facebook page?
You get first hand sneak peeks of upcoming releases and information before it goes live on the Some Odd Girl Blog.

Super Tobie was colored using copic markers on xpress it cardstock for the August Sketch Challenge at SOG!

I finally realized clean and simple is how I roll anymore, although I wish I had the card making skills of some of my friends across the web. I'm secretly hoping it rubs off on me in the near future... hehe

Go join in the sketch challenge this month at Some Odd Girl, and look out, because we will be blog hopping tomorrow, Aug 3, and there are fabulous prizes to be won!
