Hello, Happy Monday! For those of us in the States, today is Memorial Day and we take this day to remember and honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. My Gratitude goes out to my husband, father, brothers, father-in-law and brothers-in-law for their sacrifices for me and our great country.
Today I'm sharing the adorable Boba Tea digital image from Not 2 Shabby. This image is part of the Bes-Teas Digital Release for May 2022.
I've colored the image with alcohol markers, fussy cut and adhered to a card panel that has been ink blended with a Catherine Pooler ink. The die cut star and sentiments were in my stash.

Hi Crafty Friends and Welcome to Friday! I hope this is the beginning of your weekend and you have something fun planned. Today begins a new challenge at The Colour Crazy Challenge Blog and our sponsor this fortnight is Ching Chou Kuik. For my project, I've used the Keep in Faith digital image to create a page for my Art Journal.
I still have the People and Country of Ukraine on my heart and in my prayers so this page was created with them in mind. I think the sentiment describes them perfectly.

Hello And Happy Sunday! Today is forecast to be another stormy day here in Central Florida so my plans are to stay in and be crafty. During the rains yesterday, I created a birthday card for a 96 year old who loves flowers. I hope she also appreciates my "mixed media" background.

Hello and Happy Sunday! I hope you're well and enjoying your weekend. Today I'm sharing a card created using the Stamp and Coordinating Die Set of the Month from Not 2 Shabby This month's set is titled "I Pick You" and features an adorable strawberry loving Gnomie couple!
Hello Crafty Friends! I'm on the Kat Scrappiness Blog today with a Birthday Card that features a mixed media vibe and one of the newest stencils. Before we get to my card, I want to remind everyone of the 50% off All Clearance Sale that is currently on offer at The Kat Scrappiness Shop. Stop by and check out the Clearance Category, now is a great time to get your hands on some crafty items!
Now for my card! I love stenciling on projects and have been active in my Art Journal so I've been "Mixed-Media" minded lately. This birthday card has a stenciled and inked background that is similar to how I break a blank page for my Art Journal.
To finish off the design, using the sentiment shadow from the Birthday Kisses Sentiment Die, I've die cut from the panel, cut the wording from silver mirror card, adhered all together and popped on craft foam for dimension. Lastly, Pretty Pegasus Dual Colored Pearls and a doodled frame were added for additional interest.
That's all I have for you today. Have a wonderful day and until next time, Happy Crafting!

For My Hop project, I've colored the amazing and gorgeous Stargazer Lily Floral digi image. The image is so lovely and I wanted to keep the design Sweet and Simple, so I've created a Mini Slimline Card.

Hello Everyone! Today is new digital release day at the Not 2 Shabby Shop and the theme is Boba Tea. I have to admit, I did not know what Boba (also called Bubble Tea or Pearl Tea) was so I had to look it up.
"Bubble tea is a tea-based drink that originated in Taiwan in the early 1980s. It most commonly consists of tea accompanied by chewy tapioca balls"
My card features several of the Bubble Teas, all hand colored with alcohol markers and placed on a stenciled background.

Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed their Mother's Day yesterday and if you're not in the US and celebrated Mother's Day yesterday, I hope you had a lovely day anyway. My eldest son took me to lunch and then for ice cream afterwards, it was great to spend time with him and enjoy his sense of humor.
Today begins a new challenge week at Pammie's Inky Pinkies with a theme of Anything Goes. Our generous sponsor this round is Jan's Digi Stamps and I've had the pleasure of using an image from the Awesome Chick Digital Set for my card.
This chick just makes me smile, I think it's the adorable eyes and face. I've colored the scene with alcohol markers and die cut the focal panel with a frilled edge die from Crafter's Companion.
