I love Lolita. She is another awesome Digi-stamp from Guylou.  You can find her creations here. Guylou's Store .  Her digi-stamps are only $2.00 each.  The inside of this card says "You're getting better."  It is for a friend of mine.  On this card I tried to give her a little darker skin than usual.  The Copics I used are here.
Thanks so much for browsing my Blog!! I love to have visitors!!!


This is the latest image by Guylou.  Her name is Lisa.  I absolutely adore this image.  She can be found here at Guylou's Store .   I am so excited to be a part of her design team and spreading the news about her amazing new images.  One of my fave parts about coloring with copic markers is coloring skin.  Getting the shading right.  And Lisa has lots of skin!!  The paper used is from CTMH as is the You are an Original Stamp.  The Copic colors I used are below.  Thanks for visiting my Blog and stay tuned for some Blog Candy coming up soon!!!!

I just love this image by Guylou.  This is Jessica.  Don't you just love her little rainboots and matching umbrella?  The patterned paper is some Fancy Pants I had left over in my scraps, so is the ribbon.  The cardstock is Bazzill.  The sentiment inside the card says, "Others just get wet!"  It is a set I have from CTMH.  I had these cool water drops that were designed for school books and stuff I found on clearance in the office supplies!!  I appreciate you visiting my blog.  
The image can be found here oneguyloublogspot

Copic Colour Challenge #51

My card for the Copic Colour Challenge this week features this adorable image from CC Designs. You can't tell I have been on a CC Designs kick lately, can you?  I just love these cute little images and can't seem to get enough!!! The cardstock is from Bazzill, the patterned paper from DCWV.  The "Sweet" little charm is from CTMH.   I did not have R-29 so used R-27 in its place.  That is the beauty of copics, there are so many of them you can substitute one close to it if you don't have it.   Thanks for stopping by.

Java Great Time Birthday Card

So I have a friend that has an addiction to coffee somewhat close to my own!!!  So for her birthday I made her this card using another CC Designs image that just may be my fave!! I love her in her robe holding a cup of coffee, with rollers in her hair.  I used this coffee paper from my scraps and this funny stamp I got off of Ebay.  There are some great funny stamps from the seller rivers2fish. He is super fast on shipping and great customer service!!! And of course I used my copics!!!


I just love this image of the Cottage Cat that I recieved via a new digital store by my friend Guylou. You can purchase your very own image here. 
So in looking for the sentiment to go with this image I found a stamp set I got from Hannah stamps and thought this little sentiment hits a cats attitude just purrrrfect!!! I used all scraps for this card and the edger punch from EK Success and of course colored her with my copics.

Valentines with Peighton

Yesterday I spent the day, seriously the day!!!! with my granddaughter Peighton making valentines.  Peighton is 3 1/2 and has some mad coloring skills!!!  She wanted to do cards like Grammy so I stamped out some of Rosalie from CC Designs and let her color. She brought along her gel pens to play with.  Sorry but no copics for her yet, those are mine alone!!!  We added ribbon, she picked out her papers and ribbon and colors and I helped with the adhesive but I would say her cards turned out pretty cute!!!  What a blast, can't wait til she is old enough for her very own cuttle kids machine!!!

Copic Colour Challenge #50

The colors for the Copic Colour Challenge were a challenge for me this time!!  OK, well they are often challenging.  They were E-18, E-42, and E-77.  In the place of E-42 I used E-44 as I don't own it yet!! Darn, I need to buy more copics!!!  I used a Valentine Magnolia from last year, she is so darling!! I cut out the heart basket with my Tags, Bags and boxes cart on my Cricut Expression.  Thanks for looking!!

Copic Storage

I have been looking for the perfect storage for my copic markers for forever!!! I saw the X cubes on line but have not found them anywhere in stores.  So yesterday while hubby and I were at the store I found this winerack on Clearance.  Down to $20 from $50. I would never have paid $50 for it, but I love it. Am thinking I may need a 2nd one if I get all the Copics I want!!!  OK, I need!!!
