News, Challenge and a Tag

Hello All! I am here to share a tag, a challenge, and to bear some news. 

So first the news.
 TTT will now have terms for their DT members and we were asked if we would like to stay on the team for the first term then we would have to apply to keep our position. Now at first I thought I wanted to stay on this FAB team because it truly is FAB! But recent changes in work have taken me into a different direction. So I am sorry to share that I will not be part of Top Tip Tuesday any longer....sigh. Looking on the bright side of things; this is a great way to keep the blog active and renewed; so be on the watch out for a DT call!

 Now onto the challenge: TOP TIP TUESDAY current challenge is  
and so here is my creation!
 Here is a closer look at the gorgeous Fae Fairy from Delicious Doodles; I just had such a blast coloring her up and truly love how she turned out.
TIP: I have added Opaque White to the butterflies and also to her eyes as they seemed a little dark; I think it really helps to add that highlight.

This weeks sponsors are:

From Pink to Blue

Hello All today I will be sharing a card that I have made for Crafter's Companion Informational Blog.

I just love the way that this card turned out and am totally loving the chisel tip on the Spectrum Noir Markers. The markers are just so juicy which makes this technique super easy.

So here is my card:0) I have used one of the image from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Silhouette Grasses
 The main image is double matted and is popped out with dimensional foam.
 I have gone well outside of my image so that I could do the double matting for this card. I even had some extra left over which was used on the inside of the card.
 Here are the markers that I have used. I love how This gradient background goes from PINK to BLUE. SO pretty don't you think?

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Crafter's Circle -Clean & Simple, Inspire Me Fridays – Always Anything Goes, Crafts and Me - #94 Anything goes, Simon Says Stamp - anything goes,

Well that is all for me today:0)

Strawberries & Cream with Kenny K

 Hello All! Today I am here to share my card for Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge

the challenge this week is: Strawberries & Cream

I have made this card for my cousin who recently lost her husband due to a stroke. They were a young couple just starting out. So this is a great shock to the whole family. I wanted to send her a sympathy card but instead decided to send her an encouraging card. She needs to be strong for herself and her two kids. I really hope she likes it.

 Here is a close-up of Strong Island I have colored her with Copic Markers.
 I love that now I can make my own ENVELOBOX to go with my 6x6 cards. I use my Ultimate Tool from Crafters Companion. Seriously so easy to make!

This weeks sponsors are:
