Always on my mind

This cutie is from Whimsy Stamps and bonus, she is on sale. Hurry on over and get yourself a copy of her...I'll wait!
I ordered her and a few dies just a week ago. Let me tell you that is fast since I live in AK, everything takes forever!  I couldn't wait to play with her.  I used bic markers and some pencils to color her. The sentiment is from an old set I have...it's called Hello Sunshine, sorry I don't have the company's name.  But I kinda think Gina K....
I used an old OWH sketch for this card and a clock face brad.

Have a good day and remember "you're always on someone's mind"

Hugs,

Scrappers Delight

This cute little guy is one of Scrapper's Delights images.  He is toadly (I know, cheesy) fun to create with! I encourage everyone to go check out their store. To get this guy for free you have to comment on their FB page.
I used Bic Ultra Fine markers (I'd like to have the whole Copics set but it is just not in my budget). I did some watercoloring for the background and then used SU Work of Art stamp set for the dark green lines.  I added some flowers and punched some "leaves" from the Martha Stewart punch.  My frog is holding a heart...I think he just found l.o.v.e.!!

Hope you all enjoy him as much as I did.

Hugs,
Shirley

New begginings

WOW it has been a long time since I blogged.  So this is all about new/different beginnings.
I now live in "the Valley" AK. I've been a AK resident for four years and love/hate it. I love the summers, even tried my hand at gardening last year. My zucchini and cucumbers did awesome. My tomatoes not so much!  This year I will be gardening in the ground as opposed to container gardening I did last year.
I have added to my family by two. Two fur babies..Prissy, a 7 year old rescue cat. She's a lover and likes nothing better than sleeping in my lap. She can not stand it when I am speaking on my phone via the speaker or watching You tube videos on my iPad.  And then just this week I added a husky, Bridgette. She is 4 years old and was given to me by a co-worker. She is such a good girl and wants to play so much with Prissy (or does she want to eat her???). Prissy is having none of that and hisses if Bridgette even looks at her. I hope someday she will at the very least learn to tolerate our new girl.
So a household of all girls!  Update, sadly Prissy is no longer with us.
I still make cards but on a smaller scale. I have a new computer and am figuring out how to upload photos. I'll get there!

Hugs
