Super Chunky – The East Wind Card

Hi There,

This sweet little image is from The East Wind called Super Chunky. They were offering it as part of the celebration going on at Kit and Clowder.

There is also a contest, which I will be entering the 10,000 Party – Colouring Challenge TEW on Kit and Clowder Facebook page.

Loved this image as soon as I saw it!!! Reminded me so much of my sweet little girl “Boo”.  As many of you know, I make cards for my vet for practically every occasion from “Boo” and the staff and vet love receiving them. (They’ve actually kept every card I’ve made for them and display them!!!) LOL! Does make me feel really good though! Thought this would be perfect for a Thanksgiving card this year from her, resting after a nice big meal.

I coloured this image using Spectrum Noir Markers and then added in a few shadows with PrismaColor Premier coloured pencils.

Bee Tag

Hi There,

Sharing a tag I made for the Challenge at JessicaLynn Original called Challenge #5 – Create Your Best Tag.


I work with a lady who is a beekeeper. I thought this would be perfect to give her the next time I purchase some more fresh honey. MMMMM, it is sooo good!!!

To make the tag, I used the bee from JessicaLynn Original Big Fat Bumble Bee digi. I sized it multiple times and arranged their position using Microsoft Word and then printed it out to colour.d

Used Spectrum Noir markers to colour bee and then added a little yellow texture with PrismaPremier coloured pencil.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Just Because” Stamps for “Buzzing by….” and “to say”. (I covered up the “hi” with tape before I stamped it.

The sentiment “Thank You!” is from My Creative Time – Hey There Little Lady.

For the tag, I used the tag die from SpellBinders “Tags and Flags” – S5-095 and shortened it.

Coloured around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed and a little dauber.

Finished it off with some black and yellow ribbon.

Hope you like it!

Carousel Card

Used largest die from Marianne Design CR1236 to make doilies for joining papers to make the carousel.

Here a few different views of the card.
