New Design Team for ME!!

 The inside of my card!
 A closer look at my darling image!
I am excited to announce that I am now a proud member of The Creative Crafters Design Team! I love that each challenge is a "Anything Goes". We have no sponsors on this Design Team and so I can use any stamp I want! For my first design with the team I chose this darling squirrel who is busy getting prepared for winter. I want to thank Alyce from Kit and Clowder as I feel my coloring is improving so much from her classes.  I colord the image with my Copic pens, added a few pretty pebbles on the corners and some "Wink of Stella" here and there on the wings of butterfly and the centers of the flowers. A little liquid glass on the nose for depth and my card is finished.  
Please join "The Creative Crafters"  for a fun challenge!

A Card For A Child!

 A closer look!
 The inside of my card!
I made this card for my youngest grandson. Much to his big brother's distaste he likes the color pink. He is all boy in every way but he likes the color pink. So I made him a thank you card for being my 'helper' when he stays with me. I know he will like it and I also know his brothers will hate it. LOL! 
I used an older digi from The Paper Shelter called "Teddy Bear Picking Flowers". You can find it here! It is also time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter! This time we want to see your cards for a child. I know this will be a fun one for me to see what you come up with. Be sure and stop by The Paper Shelter Shop and check out all the cute digital stamps before you make your card! You will find something special I am sure!

My Song: Me and My Teddy Bear 
In the house next door right next to mine A little boy lives there At Xmas time dear Santa Claus Brought him a teddy bear He loves his little teddy bear He's with it all day long And the sweetest thing I've ever heard Is to hear him sing this song Me and my teddy bear Have no worries, have no cares

In the house next door right next to mine
A little boy lives there
At Christmas time dear Santa Claus
Brought him a teddy bear
He loves his little teddy bear
He's with it all day long
And the sweetest thing I've ever heard
Is to hear him sing this song
Me and my teddy bear
Have no worries, have no cares
Me and my teddy bear
Just play and play all day
I love my teddy bear
He has one eye and has no hair
But I love my teddy bear
We play and play all day
Every night he's with me
When I climb up the stairs
And by my bed he listens
Until I say my prayers
Oh, me and my teddy bear
Have no worries, have no cares
Me and my teddy bear
Just play and play all day


In the house next door right next to mine A little boy lives there At Xmas time dear Santa Claus Brought him a teddy bear He loves his little teddy bear He's with it all day long And the sweetest thing I've ever heard Is to hear him sing this song Me and my teddy bear Have no worries, have no cares

Halloween!****



 A Closer Look!
 The inside of my card!
It will soon be time for our little ghosts and goblins to come out! I know my younger grandsons are looking forward to a fun night of gathering candy.  I love the 'non' dark digital stamps for Halloween you can find at The Paper Shelter! They are cute and appropriate for anyone! The stamp I chose for this card is "Halloween Selfie". It makes me think of my daughter when she was younger and would dress up with her friends. I will send this card to her for Halloween! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges: 
 
My Song: Love Is Kinda Spooky 
In the cool of the evening when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy,
I call you up and ask you if you want to go and meet and see a movie,
First you say no, you've got some plans for the night,
And then you stop, and say, "All right."
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

A New Kid in Town

A closer look!
The left inside of my card!
The right inside of my card!
I was thrilled to discover a new artist (well new to me)  Grazia Salvo! 
When I first saw this I wanted to color it. This image is called "Christmas Angle" I will admit that the hair is a constant challenge for me but I keep remembering what I have learned at  Kit & Clowder is to keep trying and never give up. Thanks Alyce!
 I colored my image with Copics and really do have to credit Kit and Clowder for all I have learned in their classes. It is funny how a picture shows up all the flaws though! LOL! I added a Merry Christmas die cut and used a gel pen to add the polk-a-dots!  The pinecone die cut is from Stamping Up. Just a fun little Chirstmas card to add to the stash!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

There's A New Kid In Town (Alan Jackson)
We're looking for The King
The new Messiah
We're following the star
Shining brighter
Old man won't you help us if you can
He shook his head
But he pointed his hand
There's a new kid in town
And he's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town
But he's just another baby I suppose
Heaven knows
There's a new kid in town
Here in Bethlehem

My Song: A Home In The Meadow (The Waterboys)
Away, away, come away with me
Where the grass grows wild and the winds blow free
Away, away, come away with me
And I'll build you a home in the meadow
Come, come, there's a wondrous land
For the hopeful heart and the willing hand
Come, come, there's a wondrous land
Where I'll build you a home in the meadow
The stars, the stars, oh, how bright they'll shine
On a world the Lord himself designed
The stars, the stars, oh, how bright they'll shine
On the home we will build in the meadow
Come, come, there's a wondrous land
For the hopeful heart and the willing hand
Come, come, there's a wondrous land
Where I'll build you a home in the meadow

Watch The Lamb!



This is a card I made using a Precious Memories color book page! It was also for a young man in our church who was recently baptized! I wanted him to know how happy I was for him. I colored the image with Copics and kept it pretty simple with just a pretty yarn string and some rhinestones from Queen and Company! I hope you like it! 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Song: Watch the Lamb
Walking on the road to Jerusalem,
The time had come to sacrifice again,
My two small sons,
They walked beside me on the road,
The reason that they came was to watch the lamb.
"Daddy, daddy, What will see there,
There's so much that we don't understand",
So I told them of Moses and Father Abraham,
Then I said "dear children watch the lamb".
"There will be so many in Jerusalem today,
We must be sure the lamb doesn't run away",
And I told them of Moses and Father Abraham,
Then I said "dear children watch the lamb".

My Song: Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison)
Pretty woman, walkin' down the street
Pretty woman the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you, mercy
Pretty woman won't you pardon me
Pretty woman I couldn't help but see
Pretty woman that you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me

My Song: Make Me A Blessing
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/worship-songs-make-me-blessing-lyrics.html

Out in the high-ways and by-ways of life,
Many are weary and sad;
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
Making the sorrowing glad.
CHORUS:
Make me a blessing, Make me a blessing --
Out of my life May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.
Out in the highways and byways of life,
many are weary and sad;
are weary and sad
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife
making the sorrowing glad.
Refrain:
Make me a blessing,
Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.
