Kit and Clowder is celebrating 15,000 followers on Facebook, and gifted us a number of freebies.  I had some fun today coloring one of them today : )

  I have to admit, I went to the Etsy store and colored the image similarly to the one on the site.... I love the colors!  The image is by Sasayaki Glitter- a free digi given by Kit and Clowder this past week : )  The sentiment is SU.
  I used very few markers to color the image- all C's and low R's. The ribbon was pink, but I colored over it in R02 and viola- a match. The Guava color is SU, the gray is Coordinations.

Verve Coffee

I made another card for the Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop : )

 Mind you, I do not drink coffee, maybe I will make a tea card today!  LOL  I am also trying to color everyday for the 30 day marker challenge.

 My fall colors are More Mustard and Ruby Red. I used a digital stamp for the hop from Verve, that would be the cups and the sentiment on white. The Mocha/Java/Joe sentiment is from Red Hot Rubber. The whipped cream is colored with Copic W 3 and I painted on shimmer using a Spectrum Noir brush. The card was too plain, so I stamped on background dots using Ruby red and black.

How 'ya Bean?

I made another card for the Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop- so fun : )  I am digging out older stamps that have not seen love for a while!

 Image is an older SU set inked in SU Ruby Red. The sentiment is the center of an Embossing Arts image from I Brake for Stamps. I took the lid of a jar on my desk and inked up Close to Cocoa and stamped the corcles.

I used a Sketch (Paper Play Sketch 51)that is now closed, but it worked for the card. The cup is by SU and the sentiment Embossing Arts from I Brake for Stamps.

Sip away!

I am coloring for the 30 day challenge, and this card is for the Fall Coffee Blog Hop as well.

 The image is Stampin Up. The background text is Embossing Arts which is from I Brake for Stamps. The Sentiment is My Favorite Things.

I used Close to Cocoa SU ink. I watercolored the image with Close to Cocoa then Pumpkin SU inks. I popped up the sleeve and put a Pumpkin sticker on it. The cup lid is colored with E50 Copic marker.

 The beautiful ribbon- I won in the spring Coffee Lovers Hop from DL Art Ribbon.

Faux Sunflower

I know, the image is really daisies, but I colored it as though it were sunflowers.  Do you think it will pass???  LOL  Day 13 of 30 days of coloring challenge

The image by Technique Junkies HERE is so easy to color in, and I am doing the daily coloring challenge for 30 days,- so very happy to get this image out and ink it up!!!
 The coloring is done with Copics, and I added just a smidge of shimmer using a Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear shimmer pen.

Challenges: TBA

Village at Wintertime

It is day 12 of the 30 day coloring challenge- Wahoo!  I am keeping up!

 I have so many of these beautiful Starform sticker sheets! This sheet has 3 different Christmas scenes- it is on sheet 8502. You peel the sticker off the sheet and attach to cardstock. I applied double sided adhesive first, then the Glitz Glitter, and colored right on top of the glitter using Copic markers.
 The red is embossed with a retired SU EF that looks like poinsettias.
