Guest Designer at Forever Friends

I was asked to be a guest designer at Forever Friends for the new challenge PASTEL COLORS. The challenge is being sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy. Stop by the Forever Friends blog to see the challenge details.

I have to admit, I messed up my project. For some reason, I had it in my head that it was a birthday challenge and I completely missed the pastel colors challenge. I’m not sure how I did that. I can only plead that I had too much going on and it made me a space cadet.

For my card, I used one of the adorable images supplied by Whoopsi Daisy and my card design was inspired by this card at Handmade Creations by Stephanie.

I hope you will join the Forever Friends PASTEL COLORS challenge.

While you are here, don’t forget to check out my Color Your World blog candy.

This is sooo cute! I bought the Copic Coloring Guide and I think I am already doing better, I now understand that you have to BLEND the colors together. I posted a Winnie the Pooh card that I made on my blog, if you get a chance will you stop by? It is no where are good as yours but ok for a beginner.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
