Challenge #212 Halloween Colors

 Hey everybody!  Well I have had some news.  My eyesight has been slowly dimming over the past few months.  I went to my ophthalmologist and low and behold I have cataracts.  So I am all scheduled for surgery and recovery.  I should be back up and running by the 2nd week of December 2020.  Wish me luck.

So this months challenge is 'Halloween Colors'.  Let's see who is sponsoring this month!

Prize~$10 Gift Certificate

LeAnn's World 101
Prize~2 Digital Images

Prize~3 Single Digital Images

Wow what a line up of fabulous sponsors.  If you haven't seen any of these artists work please go leave some love and have a look around!

This months creation is something I do on a regular basis.  I am a Happy Planner girl.  I try to decorate each month.  Sometimes I get this done and sometimes not. But this past week was special.  It was my daughters birthday.  So here are a few pics of my decorating!

This is my planner for 2020.  I just happened to 
find this at St. Vinnies on a treasure hunt.

(Pls click for a larger view)  This layout is for the
week of Oct 5-Oct 12 2020.  My daughters BD is
Monday and we celebrate all week.

My image is from
 LeAnn's World 101 and is called 'Punkin".  I colored
it using my Prismacolor Pencils.  I also mirrored the 
image so they would be facing each other.  The 
backgrounds are scraps and I used washi tape for 
edges and dividers.

Here is the other half of the week.  The new font 
is called Mahligai and was downloaded from  

Here is the finished layout.

My daughter and I had a Saturday of retail therapy and then I took them both out to dinner at a really nice brewery called Gilgamesh in Salem, Oregon.  The food was delish!  

So that is this months creation.  I am trying to get my projects for November and December done very early.  So until my next post, stay safe and healthy.

Brightest Blessings,

Crafty Gals Challenge #211 Fall Colors

 Hello and welcome to my blog.  For challenge #211 the theme is Fall Colors.  Pretty straight forward.  Wellllllllllllllllllllllll...

I got my themes mixed up.  I thought the theme was stripes and polka dots.  So my creation doesn't fit the fall colors but it's still pretty.  We have one sponsor for this challenge.

Prize~3 Digi Stamps

Can I tell you how much I look forward to coloring an image from Digi Doodle Studios?  I LOVE these images.  Please please go leave a little love.  Here is the link Digi Doodle Studios.

Now on to my project.  I colored up a wonderful image that can be used all year round.  Chef Cinnamon is her name.  Cooking is her game!  Let me show you what I came up with.

I love the way she turned out.  I found this back-
ground paper in a book I picked up when my
Tuesday Morning was going out of business.  The
paper pad is made by Jen Hadfield and is called
'My Bright Life'.  The Mmmmm sticker is foam.
The border was made by cutting a striped paper
against the stripe.  The polka dots are on the 
beautiful dress.  I colored her with a mix of Prisma-
color and Arteza pencils.

More foam stickers in the corners and the back 
ground paper is a scrap.

Back of my card.

Short and sweet post today.  May I ask a favor?  My beautiful state of Oregon has massive wildfires burning throughout the state.  Please pray for our firefighters and for much needed rain.

My crafty's stay safe and please stay healthy.  Bright blessings,

Summer Time Fun Challenge #210 Crafty Gals Corner Challenge

 Gosh where has the time gone.  It's flying by so fast.  I did the first chores of my Autumn/Fall (shhhhhhh Halloween) cleaning.  I love this time of year.  The weather is even cooperating.  Lows in the 50's and highs in the 70's.  I'll take it!  Now on to this months challenge.  The theme is 'Summer Time Fun'.  Here are the absolutely fabulous sponsor(s).

Prize~2 Digital Images

Prize~3 Digital Images

Twinkle Lane Designs

Prize~2 Digital Images &
2 Coordinating Digital Paper Sets

I am always amazed with the digital images and super prizes that our sponsor(s) provide for our monthly challenge.  My dear crafties, please go and leave some love for them.  They and I would greatly appreciate it.

Now on to my creation.  In my neighborhood, my neighbor across the street has planted a victory garden.  It is in what was the parking strip.  There is the biggest sunflowers I think I have ever seen.  So my image is from Twinkle Lane Designs.  I have used Sunflower Bouquet & Honey Bees Digital Papers.  So here is my Summer Time Fun creation.

I colored the image using my Arteza pencils.  Using 
my extremely sharp needle nose scissors I fussy cut
the Sunflower Bouquet out.  Next I printed out one
of the Honey Bees Digital Paper Sets.  With this on
the card, I attached the bouquet with pop dots and
added some ribbon and stickers.

On the inside, I used the same background paper
as the front of the card.  I have had this pink ribbon
for ages.  It fit the bill perfectly.  I added more 
stickers from the Garden Party sheet.

Here is the back.  I wanted to show you the new
label.  I really like the grand staff and the colors.

Here is a close-up of the sticker.

As always if you would like a listing of materials and pencils used just ask.  Thank you so much for visiting.  Next month I have a cutie to share with you.  

Take care and stay safe my friends.  Bright Blessings,
