The Sitting Ballerina

Another sweetheart of an image from Digi Stamps for Joy, Artist - JenLee.   It takes a lot of Girl Power to get up on those toes and stay there!  I have colored her with copics and cut around the image leaving some white.  The die cuts at the top are from Joy Crafts.  I used my coluzzle for the two ovals.  The sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  The cardstock, ribbon and the charm are from my stash.

Stella ICU

Stella a nurse from Bugaboo - Isn't she just the most comical looking nurse!  A get well card for one of the women I play cards with who was in hospital for two weeks.  She is now recovering at home.  I colored the image with copics.  Used a EK Success Punch down the side.  The DP is from My Minds Eye. The flower, leaves and the gem are from my stash.

Golf Swinger

A sporty image for a masculine birthday from Digi Darlas called the Golf Swinger.  I have colored the image with copics.  There was no background so I copied the background from another image from Digi Darlas, but her grass on the bottom looked much better than mine.  He does look like he is definitely standing in the rough on the side of a hill!  The sentiment is from Forever in Time.

Love summer I golfed yesterday morning, it sure was hot so I took a cart with my friend Carol.  The course we play on is very hilly, so on a hot day it is nice to be in a cart and catch the breeze when you are driving.

The Blue Goddess

This image is just one of a series of four that I purchased from TLC.  I was wondering what I should use as a sentiment on the card when I received a thank you for another purchase from TLC which included the lovely rose sentiment which I think is just perfect for this card!  "The ROSE reserved for goddesses".

The colors are based on The Inspiration Progressive Challenge at CDAC from this photo:

This challenge runs April 1st – June 30th (midnight PST).
The Challenge Inspiration is...

The image is colored with copics.  I cut around the frame of the image and mounted it on colored cardstock layers.  I added some lace and a ribbon flower from my stash.  I colored the beige flower with my copics to try to match my other colors.

Every year in June I go golfing with a group of friends, I think there will be 12 this year to Forest, Ontario.  On one of the holes there are several Wild Rose Bushes that are just like the roses on the image above, except they are a nice shade of pink rather than the blue that I colored them.  I am going next week for three days, so hope they are still there.

Ruby is a sweet image with lots of  flowers from Wee Stamps.

Had a great day so far - managed to finish planting the flowers in my garden to-day, though I usually add more during the season.  It has rained quite a few days lately so it was half finished until I could get at it again.

Ruby is colored with copics.  The yellow butterfly is emblossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The Edge punch is from EK Success.  The Die Cut for the image is from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from Nettys Cards.  The ribbon from Michaels - the lace, and DP are from my stash.
