Enjoy life's moments!


First ~ I want to wish all my fellow crafter's a Happy Halloween and keep safe!

Here is a quick post to share before I wait for my contractor's to arrive to do some home improvements to my living and dinning area of my ceilings... We have open beams and I don't like those popcorn ceilings so they are going to insulate and put pine wood.. Can't wait to see how it's going to be when it's completed..
Well here's another digi image from Scrapbook Stamp Society (Fairy Dust) and will be sending this off to a dear friend who is going through some hard times.  She's exotic in her own special way and love those whimsical images and this was right up her alley and I also used her favorite colors too..

Recipe for my card:
Papers from K & Company
Spellbinders label seventeen
Spectrum Noir & copic markers
Stickles, sentiment from Kaiser Craft

Enjoy your festive evening~

Bethany's Birthday!


I finally got all my projects done for Bethany's birthday coming up in a couple of weeks.  Yes, I started early it took me almost a week to finish what I had to do.  I will have to do (3) different postings on it since it goes with one of my DT posting that is not due yet... So for my first posting I did her card & bag,  I initially did her card first and went ahead and colored the image using pinks / black until I found out later that the birthday girl wanted her theme in red / black.  Mommy said okay she will be fine with that so whew I thought I had to re -do the whole card.   
My digi image was a freebie that I got from FB  Sherri Baldy Designs ( Eleanor and Pickles Back to School).  Sherri is one talented designer she has some awesome digis in her etsy store. 
So on to my card / bag, I used Spectrum Noir and copic markers, spellbinders labels seventeen, balloon die from C.C.Designs, computer generated sentiment, EK punch (lattice chain), twine nd Quik Kutz embossing folder.   For the bag it was using (1) sheet 12 x 12 cardstock, Spellbinders same as card, and large red eyelets for the handles.   I also did the hair in two different shades to give it a little class to it...

So do you think Bethany will like it so far?   Stay tune for the rest of her  goodies that goes with this set.

A Double Rainbow!

400 Follower Blog Candy Here!

Happy Sunday everyone~
I just opened up my blinds in my craft  room and how weird was this double rainbow, it was like  right there in my neighbors guava orchard.  It only lasted like (5) minutes and it disappeared..   I have two big picture windows in my craft room so I have lots of light that shines through.  My boundary is up to where the cleaned trimmed hedges are.  My craft room sits in the back end of my house so it's very peaceful back there .  I have a one acre parcel so it's humongous for me to upkeep!  LOL!

Be back later with another posting....
Enjoy your Sunday~
