Coloring and Creating

Hello my lovely crafting friends. I wanted to stop by to share with you my latest card and tutorial that I created for my monthly posting over at SOC
For my card I used my New stamp "Anya Styles" from the Big Time Anya Collection from The Greeting Farm.
I stamped a sheet of card stock with Anya and wanted to practice my hair coloring. She has the best biggest hair for that and I knew I would have a ball coloring her up.

Birthday with SOG

Helllo everyone.. How are you, for those in the USA, I know that we are enjoying our warm and gorgeous "summer weather".. I have spent the last few weeks entertaining my two younger kids while trying to get things finalized for my oldest son who will be off to college at the end of August.. So needless to say I have been one very busy 'mamma' (like the rest of us right :)

Anyways I wanted to share a card with you all that I made for a friend of mine.. One of my bestie's asked me to make a few cards for some family and friends of hers, well first of all I was beyond thrill and honored that she had asked me to create the cards. You know that we are our worst critic soo I always feel like even though my work is good, will it be good for me to be able to actually give it to some one and they will like it.. LOL..  SOO this was the first card I made for her because the person's birthday was coming soon and she needed something right away!!.. 
For this card I went with "Gifty Gwen" from SOG!! I just LOVE and adore Kristi's images, and thought that Miss Gwen would be perfect! (plus when I asked about hair, and eye color she sent me a pic of the Bday girl and she kind of looked like Gwen, so I thought that was cute :).. So here she is after I had colored her up with my Prisma and OMS.. now if you notice after I thought I was all done; was when I realized that I had not colored her 'hair barrette'.. lol.. so I had to go back and finish that!!

Here is my finish card. I used some yummy paper from "MME" " Hootenanny' Card stock and ribbon from PTI, an embellishments are from recollections from Michael's. Sentiment is from Unity stamp co.

and here is the inside of my card.. again. My GF did receive the card and she Loved it!!.. she said even her Husband loved it and he thought that it looked like the BD girl  as well too.

So that's it for me for today, just wanted to get this uploaded while it was still fresh on my mind, or it might be several weeks again before I decided to sit down and do a post.

HAPPY Scrapping,

Bikini and Burgers Coloring Brown and Fuchsia

Ok. wanted to just show you some of my coloring.. I really have been slacked on my 'card making latley,, But Not soo with my coloring,, as I always state that coloring is such a therapeutic thing for me. So I will be showing more of just my coloring now. And if I happen to create a layout or project with on of my colored images, then of course I will share that as well..
 So. following up with my card that I just showed in my last post. "BikinianBurgers.. I will usually color my images twice, some times three times. especially  when I want to try several different hair colors and skin tones!! so here she is with "Brown hair and Fuchsia hair..
 for my Fuchsia, I went with just a slightly darker skin tone; I think it makes her hair color pop a little bit more.
and here she is with Brown hair.. She looks more "Latin".. which is what I was going for.. 

Hope you like them.. 

Happy Scrapping,

Celebrate with Bikini and Burgers

Happy 4th of July everyone.. Wow it only took me like 3 hours to upload this card.. My computer has it's moment, and with the heat it kept turning off right in the middle of me "editing my photo's" and then just as hard of a time when I came to my blog to post.. 
Anyways as you can see I finally got her up.. I had my images colored a few weeks ago, every since I picked her up, I think she was a 'freebie' for a while, from the always 'Fabulous Krista from "Saturated Canary'.. Just love her and her images. huge fan!!
I knew she would be perfect for a "4th of July or a Holiday theme card.. So when I saw that the challenge over at SC challenge blog was "Celebration". I thought it was a perfect fit. Say hello to "BikiniandBurgers".. She comes with this Fabulous sentiment which reminds us that we should love our self just they way we are!.. 
Here is a Close up of her and the sentiment, I think you can read it 'well enough'
I colored her up with my Prisma and OMS. Actually when I colored her up the first time I was going to enter another challenge for "Different hair color".. So I give her a bright' Fuschia color. and of course she is "celebration" the 4th of July in her Patriotic colored 'bikini'.. and holding her delicious burger. DP paper is from My Mine Eye's  Supper Splash".. Ribbon and Card stock from PTI..
here is a side view
and last here is the inside of my card.. 

HOPE you all had a Great 4th for those that are celebrating, and for the rest of my lovely crafter.

Happy Scrapping,

School is out!!

Hello everyone, I am back with another card and challenge!! 

I had several cards made and submitted for publication, but because the Magazine was bench  I have a few more that are just sitting on my laptop waiting for me to share them with my crafting community.. So when I saw the newest challenge over at TGF Farm Fresh Friday.  The Theme is "School is Out!! So my card was already done and just perfect for the theme..  For my card I used "Sunday" from the Creeper Crew!!.. I just love this image, we really don't pay attention to alot of  boy stamps and image, but when you have one as cute as Creeper Sunday, you have to share him in a lot of your layout and projects.
He is colored with my Prisma and OMS!!.. DP is from MME " School Daze. great paper pack, I just used a few of the sheets and cut out  all the embellishments that you see on my layout.
Here is a close up of  "Sunday".. I hope you like my little card, and please head over to TGF page to see all the great stuff they have going on over there.. You all know that they were my first love in stamps and stamping, and even though it's been a long time since I have participated or even posted anything from them.
