Hey all! Well, I finally caught my first back to school cold...ugh...was actually surprised that it happened this late in the month..usually I get one after the first week back in school-LOL!! Ahhh, the perks of being a teacher!!!
It's time for another Inspirational Monday over at Lalaland Crafts and the theme is to use Fall colors in your creations! I've used Sitting Marci as my image and the papers are from Basic Grey and were a gift from my good friend Prairie Fairy. I love the warmth of these colors and I also used this awesome crochet lace that I received for my B-day from my good friend, Lori. Thanks gals!!! The little leaves are from Dollarama-I bought those last year at Christmas time on sale-lol!
Marci is colored with Copics and Prisma Color pencils. here is the list: Hair: E13, E25, E29, E59, E49, Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20; Prisma Color Pencils: 1028, 1031, 1027, 1088.
Hope u all like, enjoy your week and take in all those magical Fall colors outside, it's truly my favorite time of the year!! xox, Trish :)
Hey all! Just wanted to share this card that I made last month at my son's request. He saw this adorable image from Pollycraft from the Swings and Slides collection and insisted I buy it and make a card for his soccer coach. He told me "Coach won't like girlie stuff, so make it manly!!" I just about burst my sides from laughing so hard!!
I'm only going to give it at the end of soccer season, as they're only having their first game tonight after the summer vacation break. BTW, I think this image totally looks like my son-shaggy hair right now and big brown eyes!! Hope u like! Enjoy your day! xox Trish :)
Hey all! Yes, it's Monday again and that means it's time for another theme this week over at Lalaland Crafts. The theme this week is to use a doily in your creation. I got this mini pack of Pyress Papers from Basic Grey for my B-day and I love the color scheme!! Thanks Bertie!! :) Then, I used this super-cute image, called Cheerleader Marci and she is colored with Copics. Here is how I colored her: Copics used: Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20, BV0000
Well, I'm off to work now, the kids are so eager to learn, must be a sign that they truly enjoyed their summer and want a new challenge!! ;) That's what I'm going with ... Enjoy your day and week! xox Trish :)
Grrrr! Hey all-has anybody else been having a love/hate relationship with Blogger or is it just me and my computer!!!! Happy Labour Day to all, and it saddens me that I have to see my Summer holidays end and re-enter the world of the working class tomorrow...ugh. My kids are excited about starting school, so I guess that's a sign that they've had their fill of Summer and are ready to hit the books-LOL !!
So, today is Inspirational Monday over at Lalaland Crafts and the challenge this week is to make a creation other than a card. I used Pumpkin Marci and just used her head to fit in this super-cute bookmark that was made for me by a friend.
Last week's challenge was to add some real or faux stitching to your creation. That post was impossible to publish...it just kept saying Error!! I used my machine to sew around the card, but u can't really see the stitches, unless u zoom into the photo...ugh!
I used the Mermaid Marci image for the second creation and she is colored with Copics. Here's a list of how I've colored her:
Hair: Y21, Y23, E31, E33, Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20, Scales, starfish, bathing top: BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02.
Enjoy your week, I know I will try to cherish every last bit of today!! Hope u like! xox, Trish :)
