Springtime Chickie

For my Whimsy & Stars Studio DT post this week, I played around with the adorable Springtime Toadstool image again.   I love this little chick.   This time I added a little Fun Flock to make him fuzzy.

To create the clouds in the background, I tried something new.  I used the cloud template created by Bev Rochester and this tutorial from Jan Hunnicutt.  Check out the blogs of both of these talented ladies.  I like the way these clouds look and it was much easier than some of the other techniques I have tried.  

Be sure to stop by the Whimsy & Stars Studio store to check out all of the adorable spring and Easter images.  

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

This sure does say spring time with that cute little chick and all those wonderful bright colors, just like a country kitchen with a pie in the oven. OK probably should have had breakfast before typing, but really love the card.

Hi Cheryl! What a great card, I needed to see something so happy and bright on what is an overcast day in my neck of the woods. This just screams happy to me, I love the vibrant colors, the image, and the way you set off the image with those pretty flowers!

Berry the Snowman

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
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.
