Beach Wagon

This beach wagon makes me want to go to Hawaii & become a surfer! There are a few problems with that dream....I can't surf for one & I don't like being in deep water....ah well, another dream down the tubes!  I made this card for my son's birthday (he has been to Hawaii & can surf!) & he loved it. The image is from Paola at My Whimsical Little World & you can find it here. This is the mid way point in this months challenge at MWLW. You can join in using any image you want but if you use one from MWLW you will be entered into the draw 3 times. The challenge is always anything goes. So, what are you waiting for....colour up something beautiful & head over to the challenge blog here.

Happy Place!

One of my favourite places on earth is a beautiful little place in Northern Ireland called Caslterock. I spent many happy hours in a "caravan" there with a very dear friend. So when I saw this image of Paola's it brought a flood of happy memories to mind. It has been over ten years since I have been back to N. Ireland but I visit there regularly in my dreams!
This cute image is called Happy Camper & you can find it here.  Hope you will join us in the August challenge at My Whimsical Little World! The challenge is always ATG; you can use any image but if you use a MWLW image you can enter twice.

I Love Moo!

I made this card for my Hubby for our 44th wedding anniversary which is today. I have wanted to use this adorable Mo Manning image called "Moo" for ages & this seemed the perfect occasion. Just look at the soulful eyes on her! The verse inside reads "It's a good thing we still have each other 'cuz no one else would put up with either of us!" tee hee.....I actually think that statement is pretty accurate! As usual I chose a CAS style & coloured the image with copics. The CS is Prism cranberry & the DP is Doodle Hearts by the Paper Studio.

Favourite Little Nerd!


 For my second post as a member of the My Whimsical Little World Challenge Blog team I picked this adorable little "nerd"....the only thing missing on him is a pocket protector full of pens!  If you want to colour him you can find him right here.  I used copics to colour him & glossy accents on his glasses. The argyle DP is from Pebbles Inc. & the stripey one is from my stash & is a few years old so I have no clue of the company. (sorry)  Just add some argyle ribbon & a button & there you have it! Why don't you create something amazing & join us in this months challenge. It is always anything goes & you can use any image but if you use one of MWLW's images you get 3 entries in the draw.

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

Make a Wish

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 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!

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.
