Celebrate the Occasion

As if I don't have enough to do, I decided to participate in the CTO Challenge #60 - Happy Birthday (must use ribbon).  Just dropping off a quick card I put together for one of our musicians at church.  I love the color purple, and apparently so does our drummer!  LOL. 

Hope he likes it.  TFL

Keeping Hope Alive Pays Off!

Greetings Fellow Crafters,

As some of you may remember, I applied for 2 design teams back in March; but did not make either team.  I was sad, but not totally discouraged.  It gave me incentive to push myself to be more consistent and "out of the box" with my crafting.  Well, another opportunity presented itself; and I am now a member of the Jackson Digital Expressions Design Team!  So, no more days of "no crafting" - LOL!!  I have tight schedules and deadlines to meet.  LOL!  I'm grateful to the DT Coordinator for giving me another chance to be a part of the JDE team. 

Here's my first submission for the "Clean and Simple" Team. 
Theme:  Family Matters
Image:  Robert Jackson
Coloring:  Copic Markers - E21, E23 (SKIN TONES), E37, E39 (SUSPENDERS, BABY'S HAIR); BG13, BG15, BG18; W10, W05 (DAD'S HAIR)
Paper:  DCWV - The Guy Stack
Label:  Nestabilities Scalloped Oval
Thanks for stopping by.

JDE Sketch Challenge #1 - Join Me

OK - Those that have known me for a while know that I have a difficult time when it comes to using sketches.  So, this challenge will be a challenge for me!  LOL. 

JDE Sketchy Color Challenge - Use Pastel Colors

Here's my take on the sketch.  I think I'll use this one for the challenge over at Oozak, too.  TFL.

Submissions are due by Sunday, April 22 at  11:59pm (EDT).
NOTE:  If you use a Robert Jackson Image, your project will count as TWO entries.

Thanks for stopping by.

JDE Blog Hop - I Won!

Hello from the land of paper, scissors, and adhesives!

I occasionally participate in blog hops.  I believe my hesitation, in the beginning, was based on the fact that I didn't have a blog.  Then I hesitated because I was not consistent with my updates or I didn't feel my projects were blog-worthy.  Well, I recently participated in the JDE blog hop, and I actually won some blog candy on one of the sites I visited!!  Yippee!!  I won an adorable Robert Jackson digi from FranCine.  I'm so excited!  Be sure to visit JDE, and join me in completing this week's Sketch Challenge #1.

Jackson Digital Expressions Blog Hop and Launch

Hello Crafters,

I created this card earlier today for a guest speaker who ministered at our Women's Fellowship today.  I also decided to use this card as my submission for the inaugural design challenge at Jacskon's Digital Expressions.  Please feel free to join me in celebrating the launch and blog hop, which will introduce Robert Jackson's art work as well as the new DT members for the blog.

I used:  DCWV Rustic Stack; Robert Jackson digi, Yellow stickles, yellow ribbon; and Copic Markers (Y11, Y13, Y15; E21, E25; 100)

Thanks for stopping by.
