Have a Great Day!

Good Morning! It's been a busy week here, the kids start school tomorrow and we squeezed as much fun into last week as we possibly could. So I don't have anything new to share, but I did find this little guy that I had not posted before. These little "Spunky Sprite Boys" are so fun and easy to color or paper piece. They are darn cute too! All stamps and papers are from The Angel Company. I hope that you are having a fabulous day today!

August Angel Art Blog Hop- Autum

Fall is coming, soon the the trees will all be painted in beautiful colors, the days will be cooler. Before we know it Halloween and Thanksgiving will be here too, some of my favorite Holidays!
 So for this months blog hop I created a fun little Halloween card using "Fall Fibi and Lilly" and "Background Soup" from The Angel Company, of course. I just love these cute little cats! I created the swirls with my stardust gel pen, and the sweet kitten is colored with Copic Markers.
Thanksgiving is also a favorite holiday, as a kid I think it was my most favorite. My Mom always made a fabulous feast, and pies are a specialty of hers!! The whole family would come and  it would be so crowded, and chaotic, and so much fun.
I just got this set of little "Thanksgiving Sweeties" and had to color some up, so cute!

Please check out all the other Angels and there fun creations, there should be lots of inspiring ideas!

Just a little reminder about my Copic Coloring  101 class next Saturday, August 21, at The Crafters Mall. We will cover all kinds of information on the use and care of these wonderful markers.

Home Again, Home Again!

 Home again! It's nice to go places and see things, be with family you don't get to see all the time, but it is also nice to come home again and be in your own space too!  This has been a whirlwind summer filled with lots of little trips here and there, but I think we are finished. School will be starting soon and it's time to resume a more "normal" schedule. *sigh*  I am not a big fan of the "normal" schedule, and I think I am one of the few Moms that likes having my kiddos home. Summer is just fun and I am sad to see it coming to a close so fast.

This is another fun little card I put together to show off some of the new stamps from The Angel Company. I used  the set "Oh No She Didn't" for this card. I didn't intend to use these colors together, and they are not really colors I would normally put together either (Well the orange and green yes, but not with the aqua),  but I am really liking them together on this card.

So what do you think?

What I used:
Stamps: Oh no she didn't, thinking of you
Ink: Momento tuxedo black, Palette burnt umber
Copic markers, E00, R20, YG03, YG17, Y38, YR16,YR09, BG10, BG15, BG18, 0, E33, E25

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Fibi and Lily At The Beach

 These are the cutest kittens, and they are having a much warmer adventure at the beach than I had this year! This is a new set from The Angel Company called "Summer Fibi and Lilly", there are three different sets that include these cute kitty cats, all of them are adorable. So much fun to color too, here I used Copic markers, but these little gals are just as lovely colored in pencil or water colored. The sentiment is from another TAC set, "Brighten Your Day". 

I hope that you are having a wonderful Summertime day, thanks for stopping by!!

August Stamp of the Month- Delightfully Spooky

Can you believe that it is August already!? I just wanted to share some samples that I made up using "Delightfully Spooky" the August Stamp of The Month from The Angel Company.  Such a cute set and so much fun to color. I made this card using a card sketch from Heather Scott's blog, every week she offers a sketch to try, along with some wonderful creations that are sure to inspire. If you have some time go take a peek.

This next card uses the same set, with a $30.00 purchase you can get this set for $10.95 this month! It will still be available after this month, but at it's regular price of $15.95. I used a cuttle bug embossing folder to create the web, after it was embossed I rubbed it with some black ink to make it show up better then I added a little shimmer with my gel pen to make it pop.

I hope that you are having a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Delightfully Spooky T3348
Paper:  Miss Moxie SWIC(first card), Bazzil card stock, Bo  Dot kiwi (on witch card) black and cream card stock.
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Colored with Copic Markers

Summer Fun

It has been a crazy busy summer this year, my family and I just got home from a short camping trip on the coast. It was really cold and foggy this time, but we had fun and enjoyed being together anyway. Today is my daughters birthday, it seems like we just brought her home from the hospital as this beautiful tiny little baby. She is still beautiful, but tall and leggy. She is amazing and I am so thankful that she is my girl.
Just before leaving to go to the coast, I found out that I had won a contest with The Angel Company!( Every month TAC has a contest with several different categories, if you are a demonstrator you can enter to win stamps or paper!!)  I was so excited because now I can get some of the wonderful new sets that are in our latest catalog! Here are a few pictures of the mini album I sent in for the Summer Sensational category.

I used one of our matchbook mini albums, "Rockin' Roxie", it comes with the cover all the pages and a whole bunch of die cut accent pieces.

I also used the stamp set "Summer Boys", and the coordinating "Miss Moxie" card stock, lots of ribbon and some buttons too, to decorate this fun little album.

I love how this one turned out, and to be honest it was kind of hard to part with it, but so worth it to win some new stamps!!! Congratulations to all the winners!

So what do you think?

All supplies from The Angel Company
What I used:
Rockin Roxie match book mini album
Miss Moxie cardstock
Summer Boys, Date Disks
Nestabilities circles and scalloped circles, edge punches(not TAC), ribbon, buttons, scrappers floss.
Copic markers for coloring
Momento tuxedo black ink, Palette burnt umber ink
