Happy New Year

To All My Wonderful Blogging Friends

Reflecting on this past year has left me feeling so blessed because of you and your never ending support.  I'm so looking forward to sharing 2012 with you and reveling in all the inspiration from your blog along with the beauty of your cards and projects.

My wishes for you:
That the year 2012 fulfills your dreams and bring you more happiness than you can imagine.  That you have good health, love, prosperity, and peace.  That you win lots of challenges and candy. There are so many more but I'd be here all night.

Thank you for being here and for all your wonderful comments and inspiration.
Here's to 2012 and to you!

Fun Is Just a Tub of Bubbles

Most of you all have probably heard the saying, song, or whatever, "Life is just a bowl of cherries".  This song has been playing in my head the whole time I was putting this card together and I don't even know any other words to it....Hence, the cherry charm.  I changed the words to "Fun is just a tub of bubbles" to go with the image for a birthday that's coming up in January. 

I've had this Elisabeth Bell image ever since it came out and had it colored for ages.  Thought it would fit with a couple of challenges I wanted to play in, and they are:
Bells 'n Whistles - Warm Earth Colors
Elphine House - Around We Go (circles)

So meet "Duckie" by Elisabeth.  You can get him HERE.  Duckie is colored with Copics.  The DP is a combination of SU, Basic Grey, and Bo Bunny.  The sentiment is computer generated and I used SB circle and scalloped circle dies.  Ribbon is from stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Holiday Joy

Oh my, it felt so good and joyous to be back in my craft shack.  Couldn't find anything, not sure I got much mojo, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself playing with this new Elisabeth Bell Digi Image, The Littlest Angel, colored with Copics.  She is so sweet and adorable, I love her!

Here's a little peek at the inside.

I an entering this in the following challenges:
CMC Copic Challenge - Gold, Creams & White
The Digi Bells - Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.  Would love it if you have the time to leave me a comment so I will be sure to stop by and see what's new with you.

A Big Thank You to Sharon of Plumrose Lane

A big thank you to Sharon of Plumrose Lane for updating my blog to a Christmas Theme and for making me a button to put on my blog and share.  It's for sure I haven't had any time to do much.  This is one fantastic lady that works so diligently with her clients in sharing her talents and knowledge.  If you get a chance, hop on over to her blog HERE and see some of the gorgeous free blog backgrounds and buttons or some of the amazing individual blog designs she has created.  She used one of the images I had previously created on a card.

Wanted to pop in and say "Hi" to everyone today too.  Will be off to Kansas City in just a little bit to take hubby to see the neurologist again and then hopefully out to lunch before we come home.  Plan to get around later tonight to visit some of you to see what all I've been missing out on.  Still no time to craft yet and getting pretty antsy so I hope it's soon.

Have a wonderful week, enjoy the holidays and family.
