Thinking of You

I thought I would try the Trigger Tuesday over at Moxie Fab World this week for my project of the week. And how could I not resist as it has my ultimate favorite color in it 'turquoise'! The picture is your inspiration and the colors to be used are Turquoise, White & Soft Suede.

I went over and grabbed the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for Jan 18th.

How Ewe doin?

Another great sketch for Mojo Monday designed by Julee Tilman. Once again I went into my collection of hoarded designer papers and this time I grabbed two sheets from my 'blue' container.

This was a free digital image from Whimsie Doodles; How Ewe doin? I've been getting pretty good at coloring with my Copics. On this card I watched a couple tutorials on coloring a fence with your copics. I'm finding I'm getting more of an idea as to what shades everyone is using to color different objects with than following them step-by-step.

Live, Laugh, Love

It's the first Monday of the new year 2010 and that mean's MOJO Monday. A very cool sketch designed by Teresa Kline a very talented paper crafter who's blog I just love to follow.

I pulled out some paper from pads that I have been hoarding. And as part of my 'Friendship Contract' goal for this year is... ~ too use what I already have~.

I have been in Valentine's mode for the last couple of weeks. I love seeing it, the cheesiness behind it & just plainly love it itself. Not that it is any help that I have been working in Christmas for that last 5+ months. Hence the joy of working in a craft store!!! But never the less it's time to move onto the next season :)

Winter Tree

Happy New Year 2010! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and welcomed in the New Year with great friends and family...

The new year brings us new goals and challenges and hopefully we can fulfill each and every one of them. And once again where I live we are in a deep freeze of -23C. with a windchill of -45C. A blizzard warning is in effect, what a stark way to start the new year!!!

A quick card using the SU! TopNote Die cut, I CASE'd this card from Gone INKognito. My version is a birthday card for a birthday in January. I love the colors that are in the SEI, Winter Song paper stack. You can never have enough turquoise! I have the feeling these are going to be big wedding colors for this year.

INK: SU! Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze
RIBBON: AC Brown Gingham
