Friday Coloring Challenge and Exciting News

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend! On Sunday, I will be watching the NE Patriots hopefully win the Super Bowl! It should be an exciting game!  Anyway, I am here now with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "anything goes" with an option to add a Christmas twist.   I also have exciting news!  I was invited to be a Guest Designer for the new challenge in the Art by MiRan FB group!  The new challenge starts today and the theme is also "anything goes"!  Many thanks to the team for inviting me! 

Here is my card for the challenges:
 

My card base and mats are SU Blush Blossom and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market Street 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Lillian from Art by MiRan, of course.  I colored in soft colors with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some pearls, lace and a few Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Little Miss Muffet Challenge #103

Good morning!  Happy Thursday!  Hope you've had a good week so far!  Thinking of my family and friends in the Northeast that are starting to dig out from the big storm. Thankfully, our weather here in AL has been calm, although on the cold side. Amazingly, it's Thursday again and time for my Little Miss Muffet DT post.  We have a brand new challenge starting today and the theme is "all you need is love".  What could be more perfect with Valentine's Day just a couple of weeks away? Your project doesn't have to be about Valentines' Day, though.  Anything to do with love works!
 
Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Riding Hood Red and the patterned papers from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Polka Dot Pals Romeo from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I colored him with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few hearts punched from glitter paper finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
 

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet blog and check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the Little Misses and our wonderful Guest Designers, Cinni, Lou and Nic!  We hope you will play along!  You have until Tuesday, February 10th to enter.

Hug In An Envelope

Hi there!  Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend and your week is off to a great start!  It was chilly and windy here today, but I can't complain given what many of my friends and family are bracing themselves for up North!  I hope everyone stays safe from this massive storm.   I am here now with my DT post for the Digi Bells blog.  It's my turn today to share some inspiration with one of the wonderful images in the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Crumb Cake and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Uncommon 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Holly's Happy Mail from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A die-cut lacy border and a double-loop taffeta bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
