HA Big Owl in digi form!

This Hero Arts Big Owl stamp has been on my wish list forever!!! So how happy was I when I saw that it is now available in digi form!!! So here's my card for Lucy's Glitter Challenge.

I used my copics to colour the owl and distressed him a bit....don't know why I think he's a boy....and better yet..why did I use pink??? ;) I added lots of glitter took Lucy's tip about using glossy accents and it really does lock in the glitter!! I also used one of my favourite Hero Arts stamps...the clouds stamp. The sentiment is also Hero Arts. Some sewing action would be awesome on this card and my mother in law gave me her sewing machine.......I don't even know where to do you even get the string in there??? ;)

I also wanted to share this card that the talented Mariana created using my digi stamp CUTE and COLOURFUL is this!!! just LOVE it!

Remember to go here and leave a comment so you have a chance to win my latest digi stamps (Babushka dolls -  Olga and Sasha) that are available at Squigglefly.

Have a great day and thanks for popping by!!

My father bought me stacking Babushka's when I was little and I just LOVED them...hmmm what happened to them?? Anyways, my talented DT once again did their magic with my simple doodles so please go and check them out!! (once again please remember the time difference).

And please go and see what my talented Guest Designer
....drum roll please............

created with this digi stamp.

sneak peeks revealed...and owl template

I was hoping to have a card to share but with my kids sick it's impossible to get any work done....poor babies!
And that is why I am so appreciative of my design team who take the time out of their busy scheduels to turn my digi stamp into magic!!



Aren't they just YUMMY!!

Tomorrow more digi stamps are being released at Squigglefly and you'll find my latest digi stamps there (a set which includes a cake, cupcake, pie, banner and three sentiments (in my handwriting).
Be sure to check out...(remember there's a time difference between us so you might have to check a little later for some the blogs) 

And Sanne has an ADORABLE card using Sherman.

Also I thought I'd make it easier and post the owl template so you don't have to email me...just click on the template and save...hopefully that'll work!

Leave a comment and I'll randomly pick 3 to win my latest digi stamps (that will be released tomorrow).

It's all about Valentine's and friendships at Hero Arts and here's a friendship card I made with this GORGEOUS Hero Arts cling (CG107)......I didn't know what to do with it for the longest time because you just don't want to do anything to's so pretty!!! (sorry about the photo...don't know what wrong with me...can't get a clear shot!!)

click on photos for a close up

The friendship sentiment is Hero Arts (CL342) and it actually reads 'thank you for your friendship' but I only inked 'friendship'.

I made friends with some AWESOME ladies that love Hero Arts too.....too many to mention but I'm sure they know who they are...

Moxie Fab World is also having a challenge...bringing the outside in....or is it the inside out! ;) So I stamped that gorgeous Hero Arts Cling stamp using versamark ink...cut it out and put it on the inside along with the same senitment (that's on the outside).

Thanks for popping by and I was really pleasantly surprised at how many of you wanted my owl template!
Have a great day!

Moxie Color Play Challenge

Edit: If you'd like me to email you my owl template please email me...I can't find some of your email addresses. You'll find mine right under my photo on the side bar. ;)

Did I ever have a hard time taking a picture of this card....I couldn't get rid of that glare...took pictures inside and outside.....
I LOVE colour challenges and Moxie Fab World is having one!!..... but I did make a mental note....MUST buy more cardstock and INK, INK and MORE INK!!

I used my handy dandy owl template that I drew and traced on thick cardstock and cut out. It's a great way to use up your scraps but you can also print the template right onto cardstock or pp.
(click on the photos for a closer look)

I used some embossing powder....can you tell I LOVE polka dots!!! The belly is a scrap left over from another project (I made my own pp using one of PTI's background stamps). I added some glossy accents on the beak.

If anyone is interested in my owl template let me know and I'll email it to you although I'm sure you can whip up your own owl template in minutes!
Have a great day and thanks for popping by!!

material - stamps (PTI), sentiment (Hero Arts), cardstock, buttons (PTI), embossing powder, string, embossing folders (polka dots)

Such a cute sheep.... love the card - great distressing.

Congrats winners..........please email me your addresses (for the buttons) and emails for the digi stamps!!!

I thought I'd share a little........this is a picture (not out of my's from one of my art encyclopedias) I started drawing when I found out my father had cancer. I often love to look at my art books for inspiration and when I came across this drawing I connected with it! It was a very lonely, sad and stressful time in my took me a long time to finish because at one point (when my father was at his worst...before he died) I couldn't work on it..........a few months after he died I started to work on it was my mother in law framed it for me and it hangs in my living room....and it's comforts me. I coloured it with very cheap pencil crayons I bought at the corner store!! ;)

sorry about the could see my living room ;)!

This is another I drew (not from my head)'s by one of the artists from The Group of Seven...can't remember his name....I just really really liked the colours and mood of this painting.....I used oil pastels.

 Anyways...........this post is way too long...sorry about that! Pop by Squigglefly and check out the latest releases including mine!!!
Have a great day and thanks for popping by!!

I stamped tiny soft yellow hearts (can't see it too's a very rainy and gloomy day today) on Sherman's body using PTI's Heart Prints. I distressed everything using PTI inks. The sentiment is also's my actual hand wrtiting which I don't like but there you have it! I'd like to thank Clare for she gave me this idea and as a thank you to her I'll be sending her this image for free!! Thanks Clare!

There are several challenges going on......Embellish Magazine's challenge is all about hearts and a colour scheme (pink, red and black to be exact)....I'm new to this site and I'm loving all the inspiration and talent shown's like the InStyle of cards and stamping!

Nichole is having a little 'use your scraps' challenge....lots of cool tips and major inspiration there! So I used some of my scraps to make my tag.......I love making tags...this is new to me!! lol

the pink hearts pp is from a digi kit PupPEA Love by
Anne Langpap

Hero Arts is also having a Friends And Valentine's theme this month....they made some great changes that you can read about here. I used a Hero Arts heart stamp to make my own pp....I stamped it a bunch of times in rows and coloured it in with a red Copic marker.

roses....take 2

Happy Sunday!
I wanted to give you a sneak peek of Alice's and Jane's cards using Noah's ark..........they turned out AMAZING!! Looking forward to the rest of the team's cards!

I made another rose last night and I managed to make this one flatter (as flat as I can without smooshing...that is a word!). Not bad.....I'm pretty sure after a few I'll get the hang of it.

I'm working on two images that could be used for Valentine's Day so hopefully by Squigglefly's next release date (which is next Saturday) they will be ready!
Thanks for popping by and have a great day!
