Hey Dude


I was recently invited to join the Challenge Blog Team at My Whimsical Little World & this cute little dude is my first creation using Paola's images. The image is called "thumbs up" & you can find it here. The background is a Sissex embossing folder & the "grafetti" is a digital image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I used copics to colour both images. Why don't you head over to MWLW & join in the new challenge....let's see what you can create!

Hugs, Renee

This sweet image is "Celebrate Joyfully" from Tiddly Inks.....isn't she adorable! If you want to have her for your collection of digis you can find her here.  Christy has a whole collection of adorable images to choose from. This card is for my DIL's birthday & her favourite colour is blue so, blue she got....blue dress, blue flowers, blue ribbon, blue papers! I only had white flowers so I tried my hand a colouring them with my copics & I think they turned out pretty good. The card design is from this weeks Sketch Saturday.  Thanks for stopping by!

Shellina

 
..
Oh boy, do I ever envy you bloggers who manage to post every day! I know I could never do that but I am full of good intentions to post once a week....somehow life always gets in the way & even once a month seems to be a challenge these days! I'm on a quest to improve my blogging....wish me luck!

So, this beautiful image was a freebie from Zoe at Make It Crafty. Her name is Shellina...isn't she gorgeous! Zoe had a little challenge going with Shellina & that was to use aqua/turquoise when colouring her. I used copics # BG10, BG11, BG13, BG53 & BG57; her hair is BV02 & Y00 & her little seahorse buddy is coloured with Y11, Y18 & Y38.  It isn't noticeable but the fin of her tail is stickled. The sentiment is also MIC.  I'm not sure what those little "bubbles" are called but they are from Bunny Zoe Crafts.

Always and Forever!

 
Oh how I wish the colours on this card showed up properly....the pinks are just not right....they are a lovely soft pink but in this photo they look very washed out. I guess my next step needs to be photography lessons! I am writing this post as we are on our way to Penticton, BC for the wedding of our nephew Brett to his sweetheart Jenelle on May 16th. The wedding colours are pale pink & grey & when I went to pick out my supplies for the card I found this gorgeous Recollections heart paper & matching shimmer grey CS. The image is Mo Manning which I coloured with copics & then fussy cut. It was then mounted on the shimmer grey CS that I had stamped with "itty bitty dots" by Stampin Up & embossed with winter wonderland embossing powder. The beautiful corner die & the flowers are Memory Box while the hearts & edging are Martha Stewart punches. I found the perfect satin ribbon & the little pearl ribbon slide to finish things off. The wedding should be lots of fun as it is the first time in 12 years that our family & Bill's brother's family have all been together...can't wait!

Love You More Than Chocolate!


Spring has sprung here in Manitoba so Bill & I have been busy raking leaves & cleaning up the flower beds to make room for the sprouting new growth. I haven't been making a lot of cards but had to create a special one for my beautiful daughter's birthday this month. This is another adorable Mo Manning image "love you more than chocolate".  Check out the size of that chocolate heart....would love to sink my teeth into that!  And  that face....is she not just so sweet! She is coloured with copics. The DP, burlap flowers & the pearls are all from Recollections; the CS is Prism;  the hearts are cut from kraft paper using a Martha Stewart punch. Now, I am off to start on a birthday card for our grandson Tristan who is turning one this week & a wedding card for our nephew Brett who is marrying his love Jennelle in 3 weeks. Have a wonderful, crafty day!

Erin Go Bragh!


Meet "Erin", one of the new images from Mo Manning. The minute I laid eyes on Erin I knew I had to have her & I even had the perfect DP just sitting in my stash begging to be made into something sweet.  This was my first time colouring a red head & I am quite pleased with the results. By the way, Erin go bragh means Ireland forever. The DPs are by DCWV & the CS is Core'dinations. The shamrock embellishments are stamps that I cut out & popped up on foam dots.
Copic colours: YR02, YR04, YG13, YG17, YG63,YG67

Birthday Train


Isn't this little birthday train adorable?  It was a freebie over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps to celebrate their 4th birthday....each train was "custom" made....you just had to let Barbara know if it was for a boy or girl, age & the # of cars. Mine is going to my grandson Tristan for his 1st birthday next month. The train is coloured with copic markers & I used glossy accents on the window to make it look like glass; DP is Dina Designs & Colorbok & the ribbon is from my stash. It doesn't show up in the picture but I "stickled" the flame on the candle & all of the sprinkles on the cupcake. Thanks for having a look!
