A lil bit of Christmas and more

Hi  everyone!

Hope you are  all  having  a great crafty  day!

As most  of you I have  been  extremely busy  with my  big move.... and  finally  yes I can  seee light  at the  end of the tunnel. Only  a few more  boxes  left. Yayyy!  It's been  an adventure  and  so  worth it.  Here  are some  photos,  which I  have  promised to share with  you. Even including  a  photo  of my  drawing  inspiration room  before it's makeover.  The  completed photos  of my   new  studio drawing  room   will be coming real  soon.

My   before the  makeover  drawing inspiration room photo.
I  so  love the master  garden jacuzzi  tub.  Perfect  for  relaxtion.

  So   this  is  why I have been   a  little MIA.   One  thing  for  certain..  I   am  loving   my new   house and   so   are  all my   fur babies!  They are  having a blast  chasing  each other  thru  all the  rooms.  The are    not   too  thrilled with  the   construction/remodeling noise in  my   downstairs  studio  area   but  only  a  few more  days   and that will  all be completed.

Now   let's  change   gears  and  look at some  amazing   Winter and  Christmas  creations  featuring some of my new  digis by  some of my design  and  creative sunshine girls. Also  check out my  store  for more  new  digis I  just  listed today.  Yes I  have been  a very  busy  girl(wink) and of  course I will  have more new  digis  coming out over the  next  couple of  days!

Hugs, Heather

Molly’s Gone Fishin’

Happy Thursday to everyone out in cyber space. I have a very special project for you today creating with Heather’s Molly Gone Fishin’ digital image. Heather has a line of red rubber stamps and digital images exclusively through Sweet Pea Stamps.

For my cute little Molly (Do you think she is playing hooky?) I colored her with Copics and trimmed the colored image. I then layered her with two colors of cardstock.

Copics used:
E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, & R20
Hair, stump, andpole:
E25, 29, 31, 50
Grass, pants, and eyes:

B12, 14, 16, 18, and
YR21, 24, 27
B12, 16, 18
W00, 0, 1, 2, and
B12, Y18

To complete my piece I added several Cheery Lynn dies for the flowers and the butterfly. After attaching these to my card I added some Liquid Pearls to the centers and the body of the butterfly. The final embellishment is the grosgrain ribbon for the two corners.

My complete recipe:
  • Molly Gone Fishin’ digital image
  • Copics (see list above)
  • Stampin’ Up! cardstock in Pacific Point and Crushed Curry
  • Designer paper from Gina K. Designs Shabby Spring collection
  • Cherry Lynn dies: Embellishment #1 and Exotic Butterfly Small #1
  • Spellbinder’s dies: A2 Matting Basics A & B
  • Liquid Pearls: Cantaloupe and Royal Blue
  • Ribbon: Blue Grosgrain from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

That’s it for me until next week. I want to invite you to our Lacy Sunshine Facebook group. Heather has lots of little contests that go on all the time. We also have a Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. This is a progressive challenge, so I know you will want to check that out.

See you again soon!

Sammi Boo Caroling

hi everyone, caroline here. My turn to blog today hopefully all goes ok as our internet not playing nice at the moment.
I have used Sammi Boo Caroling which can be found Here in the new section of the Lacy Sunshine shoppe, she is such a sweetie. I have colored her with graphit markers. Around the edges of the image i have embossed with Fran-tiag. shabby white. The lamp i colored some acetate with the graphit markers and stuck behind so it looked like the light was on.
The die cut corners are by memory box, The holly and christmas rose decoupage is a sheet i bought years ago but could not find a name on it. I have also used glamour dust on the tree to give it a nice glittery feel. I also used flower soft snow around sammi boo's feet for the lovely wintery look.
Why not take a look at all the wonderful cards on the lacy sunshine challenge blog and also join us at our facebook group, please keep coming back here to visit to see what the next creative team posting will be.
Thats me signing off till next time, hope to see you all soon

( in  particular order)

My parents for their love and support.

My  two new little shih tzu puppies.

My  life. Which I   am   so  thankful  to God  for all his  blessings.

My  amazing talented  and supportive fans.

My  loving friends.

The  individual who  finds   my  work so inspiring  that they  must  copy  my  characters at every turn.

The  world in  all it's glorious beauty.

What  amazes  you?

 As   you can see  I  am in  a  very  thought provoking  mood  today:)

It turned into  a  nice  summer  rainy day and just been  doing  alot of   thinking and  soul searching. Sometimes, its nice to  sit  and  reflect on  your life and  all around  you. Sometimes its  just the  little  things, thoughts and  actions  that  really  inspire me and bring a  smile to my   heart:)

Anyway...   before I   end this  post  I  want to  share with you several  beautiful creations that have been  created  with  one of my  Rory  Digital Stamps.    A  few  weeks  ago, Tiets, one of my  creative  team members, asked if I  could  create  a  Rory  digi  for her   crafting club.  She   asked for  one to  work well with  a  gorgeous  lighthouse.  And  well here is the original digi  I  created. Rory Sailing.  (By the  way this image is  registered  with the copyright office).  As of   today  this  adorable  digi  is    now  available to  all my  fans. So please  come  visit my  Lacy Sunshine Crafter's  Candy  Shoppe  to   get this  precious  stamp  now.

Now  enjoy   some  gourmet  crafter's   eye  candy  featuring  the original  Lacy Sunshine Rory Sailing.

Have a  great day  my  fans and  friends!
