Back From Vacation

I made it back from our vacation to Disney World and we had a wonderful time.  We made a lot of memories including dinner at Cinderella's Castle, a pirate makeover and my son got to sword fight the Jack Sparrow on stage(he was in heaven).  It was a lot of walking and people every where but it went so well that I wasn't ready to come home.  I hope you don't mind but I wanted to share a few pictures of our vacation.

Today By Lori Designs has some wonderful inspiration by the Lollipop Girls.  Here is a card I made last week and forgot to post it with all of the excitement.  I love making cupcake cards and just decided to add some cute little flowers to make the frosting.  I used the BLD I'm One-Girl Digi image and paper from Lilli Bee's Hello Sunshine. 

There is also a new fundraiser bundle to help Katie Renz and you can find out all of the details right Here.  I hope you will keep the prayers coming for Katie and her family.

Have a wonderful week and I will see you in a few more days when I get caught up:)

Halloween Scene

Hello crafty friends!! I am so excited to be making my first post as and official member of the CMC Copic Challenge Design Team.  This weeks challenge is a fun one using those Copics to create a Halloween or Fall project not only is there great inspiration from my team mates but we have a wonderful sponsor Glitterbabe. The cute Boo Tombstone on my project is a Glitterbabe image.  Suzanne Dean has also added a new class that has many more Copic techniques and you can find all of the details HERE.
Making a step card has become kind of a seasonal thing for me.  I just love creating different scenes with these cards. Everything was colored with Copics (listed below) and after cutting out the images I used some cotton balls to create the fog.

Help 4 Katie

I am writing this morning about and for Katie Renz you can meet her HERE on her Card blog and HERE on her Family Blog. 
Many of you may know that she has a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful little boys, that she is a super Mommy and way talented crafter...she also has Stage 4 Gastic Cancer.
Today, her husband wrote an update on her blog. Although we have never met, her story touches me beyond words and my heart breaks for her and her family.  I am continuing to pray for Katie's Miracle!!!!! I hope will join me!

Lori Boyd at the start of the year was asked to design a stamp for Katie,and ended up getting an email from her telling her how much she loved it. She said it really was her boys. She was so very very sweet and very appreciative!  Sooooo, Lori and all of the BLD Team wanted to do a HUGE push of this image for her babies!!  Lori told her we were going to do this and that forever this stamp would be theirs!!  It just so happens that her 2 little guys have a birthday on the 19th of this month and her big boy has one on the 1st of December. I would LOVE to bless them with a wonderful birthday and Christmas, so that Kevin and Katie do not have to think of worry about that!

The link to purchase the stamp is not working so please go right HERE to purchase it.
or if you'd like to donate what you wish:

_________All donations will receive a random image__________ 

If ANY of you would like to help spread the word on EVERY forum,
blog, etc etc you can think of then the proceeds will go to The Renz
Family...I and I know they would be so appreciate that we are helping to wrap her
boys with our love and care.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for supporting and loving Katie and her Family!   
PLEASE keep Praying for Katie's Miracle!!
You can find out more information at the By Lori Designs blog including an address to send cards to her boys.

Did Someone Say Presents?

Hello crafty friends!1 You will be happy to know I survived the camp out with my five year old and the drought ended with some much needed rain so all is good here.  I have a lot of crafty news to share so let me get started with that.
Ink Spots
-The fabulous Suzanne Dean is going to be in San Jose , CA October 22nd and 23rd teaching her amazing Copic classes and there are still a few spots left and you can find all of the details here at www.cmcroad.com.
- The CMC Copic Challenge #28 Vintage and Distress coloring is currently running so I hope you will join us.
And finally Inky Impressions Challenge Blog has a new challenge this week and it is one of my favorites...a sketch and our wonderful teamie Marion created this one.
OK I have to say I am not a big fan of ducks.  I don't have a reason just not my thing but I have to say this little Deliah's Ducky Christmas from Inky Impressions is just a cutie and I had a lot of fun working with it.  I paired it up with "Did Someone Say Presents?" sentiment.
 I added some Diamond  Stickles to the ornaments but I just couldn't get it to show up in the pics along with the Polar White Flower Soft on the hat.  The papers are from Echo Park called Season's Greetings, love these!!  The branch  punch is from Martha Stewart and it was colored with Copics.
  This week the Inky Team A has a lot of wonderful inspiration to share with you right HERE so please stop by and visit.  Enjoy the rest of the week and I will see you again in a couple of days.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 128 and I Am So Excited

What a busy week it has been outside of crafting this week and I am so happy it actually rained one day...yipppe.  The ground was so dry it soaked it up by morining but it was great.  I have so much to share I don't know where to begin.  I am going to do a little Ink Spot Recap to let you know about some things but first by BIG news.
I have been keeping a secret and I can finally share it with you.  If you follow me you know coloring with my Copics is probably my favorite thing ever.  To me a colored image is my embellishment.  When I first got my markers I discovered I had no idea how to use them so I Googled and found tutorials from Suzanne Dean and shortly after that she started her on line Copic Classes at Color Me Creative Classroom and I signed up for class 2 and the improvement was amazing.  Here we are today and I can't even believe it I am now a member of the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Design Team:) To be on a team with the person who taught me so much and to be with an exceptionally talented and sweet group of ladies is a blessing.  So I hope that you will check out the challenge and the classes if you love Copics like I do and please visit the other wonderful team members I will have them on the side bar.
Ink Spots
And last but certainly not least this weeks
This month we are revisiting some great sketches from the past.
Now I have to say I goofed a little.. I wanted my iamge to be a bit more of a square but I printed one a bit smaller and then didn't realize until I was almost done it was the wrong one, oh well the elements of the sketch are the same.
 Yes, I found some more totally cute digi stamps from  Saturated Canary this one is Violet Ragamuffin and I love her!!  I will be using more to come because coloring these is so much fun with that great hair.
