2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Lovely La La

Happy hump day to all my friends and family ~  My Wednesday starts with coffee at my Sisters in-Law's house with the twins . . . I can't wait.  Gotta love age 3!  Never a dull moment.  LoL

On to my simplest piece of greeting art this week.  Darling Marcy is from the La La Land Digi pre-colored collection.  As it is getting really close to my next craft show, I need some of these quick but unmistakeably adorable cards to build up my inventory!  And the blog challenge is send them ALL your La La projects so the more entries the better chance.

Don't forget to hop over to Dragon Designs Challenge Blog for inspiration and a challenge I would love to see your creations.


INGREDIENTS:
Bazzill stock , Spellbinders Nestabilities die cut, and my hand made DP with a stamped oriental flower image from an undefinable source (the label is gone) sorry
Sentiment is digi from Crafty Sentiment

entered into La La Land Challenge ~ All your La La's

MEDIUMS:
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tim Holtz Lipstick on background and Antique on Nestie
Water color paint orange, red, yellow
White Sharpie for freckles, and B000 copic for eyeshadow

EMBELLISHMENTS:
Tulips from Wild Orchid Crafts - original white hand painted w/water color
ribbon, tied with my new Bow-easy, from stash
Stickles is added to lips and shoes for that girly touch

The inside is covered with simple white paper.  This card was 15 minutes from start to finish TOPS!  Great fun and quick gratification.  Sometimes it's fun to have that quick fix lol (you know what I mean) *hugs*

Also, a card much deserving recognition, my monthly class with ScrapGirl Angie Hunt was both fun and educational this month. I've learned how to create the look of a silver platter with copics, how to keep a portion of the image outside the Nestabilities die cutter, the 5x5 half image card design and the bow-easy with distressed bias tape.  I shopped for product inventory and enjoyed every minute with some wonderful ladies in attending her class.  The design, once again, is all hers and the coloring is mine.  If you are a local Michigan crafter and need to learn some great techniques, I highly recommend this class as Angie is a real gem.

INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Do what TRULY makes you happy . . . you are the only one that will!
Thank you for visiting,

  2. Love how you've used Marci for your card. Terrifik handmade background paper. I like to do that every once in a while too. Thanks for sharing your card with us in the LLLC Customer Gallery. ;)
