You're So Sweet With Lawn Fawn .......

Hi everyone!! 
Happy Wednesday! 
I am back today to share the images 
I colored for Day 3 of the coloring challenge. 

It took me a bit to decide what I would be coloring today ...
I can't tell you how long that part took me. 
I need to plan ahead if I want to get my photos taken with
the correct light, lol! 

I went with the super adorable Sweet Smiles stamp set 
from Lawn Fawn (I don't think I've used this before). 

I was inspired by the colors of the Doodlebug Sweet Things paper pad. 

I used Copics to color my images in. 
For the red areas, I used R89, R46, R27, R17, and R05 with a bit of R02. 

For my pinks, I used RV19, RV55, RV63, and RV00. 
For the mint areas, I used BG34, BG11, and BG0000. 

I then created a card and turned the little gumball machines into 
shaker tags. 

I hope you enjoy my projects for today, thank you so much for stopping by.
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day! 
GOD bless you.

Super Happy to Be Back....

Hello everyone!!!! 
I have missed you all so much! 
It feels amazing to be back in my craft room 
creating! I hope your New Year is off to an amazing 
start!!! I took a bit of a step back temporarily, and as sad 
and hard as it was for me to come to that decision I came to realize that I was not balancing 
my time out fairly. Most of my day was spent in my craft room aside from 
cooking and taking my boys to and from school. I still love crafting and I truly 
understand how fast time flies when you are doing something you love. But...I was not
doing a great job of family time. I am super happy to still 
have the love to create and I will be, but I will also be conscious of the time I am spending 
doing it. I hope you understand my absence and I look forward to sharing more 
creations with you. 

I am joining the 30 Day Coloring Challenge 
hosted by the wonderful Kathy from The Daily Marker.
I used the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals stamp set 
for my coloring. 

I began by coloring the little monkey images which I had stamped
all over to create my background. I used my Copic markers. I started 
with the E47, E57, E55, and E31. For the lighter areas, I used E21, E51,
and E50. 

For the bananas, I used Y38, Y35, and Y15.

I then decided to create cards with them. 
   I was going for a non-traditional Valentine theme.
The monkeys and the bananas go perfectly together! 

I can not thank you enough for taking the time to stop by and visit me!! 
I pray you each have a wonderful and Blessed day!!!
