Good morning blogging buddies.
I do not know where my brain has been lately, but I totally spazzed on  telling you about the fab new challenge up at Tiddly Inks this week, Inky Critters.

It's simple.. color up a Tiddly Inks critter and create something wonderful with it!
I chose the sweet Wryn and Mo for this tag.

My house has been invaded with 7 crazy kids the last 16 hours for my sons birthday party.. sure makes it loud. lol

my furry valentine

I'm waking up a bit late today as we played D&D last night into the wee hours of the morning.  I kicked some butt and had mine kicked a little too. *geek moment* haha

This morning, I wanted to share my last creation using Creating Made Easy February kit!

There is actually a cute story behind this layout.  Hamburger is my daughter's cat, and he had been stealing Ooxie's dog bed (the pug) for a couple of days.  Ooxie would run up to her dog bed and the cat would already be in there.  Hamburger would stare at Ooxie and she would end up walking away to find somewhere else to sleep.

This goes on for a couple of days when finally Ooxie had had enough of not being able to sleep in her bed, and decided to climb in despite the smug looks she was receiving from the cat. Hamburger put up with the pug in such close quarters.. notice his foot pushing against Ooxie's head above. lol

These kits are amazing and are just packed, I absolutely have loved everything I created using this months kit.  Head over to the blog and check out all the other DT creations, I think you'll be inspired!

I have some blog candy coming up too!!
join me back here in the next couple of days and have a lovely weekend!!

I am yours mini album

Hey craft friends! Today I wanted to share a mini album I created with Creating Made Easy February's kit. This is going to be given to the parents of my baby cousin who I watch during the week... I think they will love it.

This is a 6x6 Acrylic album. For the cover I applied a mascil and dropped alcohol inks all over it. I let it dry (took about a minute with heat gun applied) and then lifted the mascil up. It created this raised texture finish that I love.

I edged the acrylic pages with a metallic silver paint pen to make them pop. Since I've had this little sweetling with me since she was just crawling, I've used photos over the last year in this album.

I have a feeling little miss Gabs will love looking at this album too. She is really into having books read to her, and her mama and daddy now, which is just so sweet.

and there are shots with my kiddo's in there too.. she's like our little adopted child for four hours a day, or getting Doug and I ready to be Grandparents.. haha
On the back page I am going to let miss gabs color on the sticker to make her mark, and she'll be giving it to her mama and daddy for Valentines Day next week.

I share more on how I made the album on my blog post on the Creating Made Easy kit club blog here.

Hey, will you do me a favor and go like the Creating Made Easy kit club page on facebook? You could tell them I sent ya and it would just make my day.

Hope your week has been going great!
See you tomorrow with a cute banner.

Shy Fairy

Good morning my friends!
Happy hump day.. I love Wednesday's because it's the middle of the week and I know the weekend will be here in a snap!

How have you been liking the new release Fairies from Some Odd Girl this week?
Total must have amirite? :)

Today we meet Shy Fairy
Isn't she a knock out?? She doesn't seem that shy to me, more like a sneaky little Fairy or a keeper of secrets Fairy! What do you think?

While I was coloring Shy Fairy, I kept envisioning a butterfly card, (#dontaskmewhy) with the body of the card being her body.
Is it weird? 
Ok.. maybe it is weird, but yet, I like it still.

Here is how the card opens up.
I created the butterfly portion in Silhouette Studio, cut it out, and adhered it to the card panel. Then I popped Shy Fairy up on pop dots in the center. 

Shy Fairy was printed on Crafters Deluxe cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.
Skin - E000, E30, E21, E00, R21, RV17
Dress - G20, G24, B24, B26, B29
Hair - BG11, BG13, BG15
 I love her little toe nails!
And the sentiment is a little piece of paper I found in my Pebbles Sunnyside 6x6 stack, it says, "Your wings already exist, All you have to do is Fly"

There you have it, the newest digital stamps from Some Odd Girl!!

Head on over to the blog today for a chance to win Shy Fairy, as well as seeing all the amazing creations from the DT using her.  You remember Some Odd Girl is looking for their next DT right now, right?? Hop over, and apply people. I've been on the team for a little over a year now, and it is SO FUN!

happy Wednesday hugs!!

Fairies, do you believe?

Happy Monday crafty peeps!

After a roaring Superbowl game last night and plenty of overindulging in the snacky foods we prepared, I found myself to have overslept this morning and the hubs wanted to stay home. Could have none of that, there is a busy day ahead and we all have to do our part.... except for the kids, those little gremlins have School off today. ;)

So, I asked in my subject, Do you believe in Fairies?
I sure do when it comes time for new Fairy releases with Some Odd Girl!!
That's right, 3 brand new digital fairy releases this month and I'm the lucky girl who got to color them up.

Today, you'll meet Pixie.
ahh, isn't she a sweetie?
She has hypnotizing eyes and a sweet tooth if I had to guess. ;)
Pixie was colored on Crafters Deluxe cardstock with Copic Markers
Skin - YR000, YR00, E11, E04, R21
Hair - RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17, Copic Opaque White
Dress - BG11, BG13, BG15
Eyes/Wings - Y02, Y06, Y08, Y38
Leaves - G14, G16, G19
I added Ranger Liquid Pearls to her little berry piece in her hair, but they did this merge thing and well, it doesn't look as pretty as I had imagined, but she seems ok with it.
I cut out the base of the card with Bazzill using my Cameo.
Pattern papers are My Minds Eye, add more liquid pearls from Ranger, and some flowers from Prima, a Jillibean soup label for the sentiment, and this card is ready to mail.

Fancy seeing the rest of the fairies in the shop early?
Head on over to the Some Odd Girl blog to see what other beautiful creations were made with the ever so sweet, Pixie!

Wish me luck, I head to the dentist this morning for a chipped tooth and to see about other unhappy things in store for my mouth.

SOGgy Sketch Goodness!

Welcome back friends!
If you missed it, I posted a fab friday card below using a cutie pie Tiddly Inks image. ;)

Today, I am also sharing the fantastic new Challenge Sketch for February from Some Odd Girl!!
I love Kristy's sketches. ^_^

Here's my take on it
The resemblance is kinda there.
I cut the card base using my handy dandy Cammie (Cameo)
and the heart in the bottom right corner is actually a pocket. Sooo cute!!

I used In Stitches Tia from Some Odd Girl, it's such a sweet Clear Stamp set.
The paper and buttons are leftovers from my February Creating Made Easy kit featuring Basic Grey's True Love Line.

I stamped out the spool from the Tia set and wrapped twine from The Twinery around it.  It makes the perfect embellishment!

In Stitches Tia was colored using Copic Markers
Skin - E000, E00, E02, E11, R32, R21
Hair - E15, E17, E18, E19, E08
Clothes - BG10, BG11, BG13 (shirt, shoes, hair clips); E40, E41, E42, E47 (pants)
Heart - R81, R83, R85
Background - R21, V20, C1, C3, C00
It makes me smile, and I hope it does the same for you!
Go check out the beautiful creations the SOG DT has created for you.. and join in on the challenge!!
