Fall Fun

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!  I'm a bit late with this post, but better late than never, right? :)  Things have been a bit crazy around here, I have a jury trial on Tuesday of next week so I'm super swamped at work (for those that don't know, I'm a prosecuting attorney so I try to put the bad guys away :) ).  I haven't been able to stop by any of your amazing blogs either due to work, but after next week, I plan to stop by and admire all of your amazing work! :)  Anyway, it's Friday so that means it's my day to post over at the Inky Impressions Inspiration Blog.  Here's my card for today:


For my card today, I just had to ink up this adorable image called Lili Playing in Leaves and she was a joy to color.  I of course colored her with my copic markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Curiouser and Curiouser

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! :)  I hope you are all having a fabulous week.  It's Wednesday so that means the new challenge is up over at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is anything goes with an optional twist to use alcohol markers.  Here's my card:


For my card today I just had to ink up this adorable image called Alice in Wonderland by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I inked the image up with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped it onto Copic Xpress Blending Card.  I then colored my image with Copic Markers.  Here are the colors I used:

As you can see, I went with nontraditional colors for my Alice :)  My cardstock is from SU and my DP is from DCWV.  I added some die cuts from Memory Box Dies and then added a bow and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I always use Scor Tape to adhere my ribbons and flowers, it holds perfectly.  The sentiment comes with the image.  Here are a copule more pictures:

Everyone Deserves a Fairytale

Hi everyone and Happy Friday :)  This is my second post today, if you are looking for my Inky Impressions post, please scroll down to the post below this one. 

Last weekend, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps had a huge celebration over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog.  Not only was it World Card Making Day, but it was also Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Birthday! :)  There were lots of challenges to celebrate but the one that really caught my eye was the Birthday Challenge because by entering this challenge, you have a chance to become a permanent Krafty Girl DT member, which would be a dream come true for me! :)  If you've been around my blog for a while now, you know I LOVE Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps :)  I use them as often as I can :)  So, I just had to enter this challenge and give it a shot.  Without further delay, here is my card :)


For my entry, I just had to ink up this amazing image.  She's called Lucy and she has got to be one of my all time favorite images (although I say that about all of them :) ).  The challenge is to create a birthday project.  Well, in my household, the best birthday gifts are books so I thought this image would be perfect for the challenge :)  Growing up, I always asked for books for birthdays and holidays and my mom was wonderful at picking out the best books :)  My husband got me a Kindle one year for my birthday . . . best birthday gift ever! :)  Anyway, I of course colored my image with copics.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Shirt: R81, R83, R85, R89
Shorts: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

Books: R35, R37, R39, R59; E23, E25, E29
Shadow: W2, W4, W6, Blender

I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from My Mind's Eye (Blush collection).  The die cut was made using a Memory Box Die.  I added a ribbon and a jewel bling (from Michael's) to the center of the ribbon.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment comes with the image, I cut each word out for a different look.  Here are a few more pictures:



What do you think?  Well, I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed :)  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day! :)
