makin cards again...

Oh, it has been a while since I have visited my own blog, my own Etsy store or my colored pencils.
Again, we have had some life changes around here and it's all for the positive this time! Jan-March of 2014 had me getting crafty for my daughters wedding shower & the main event at the end of March. I have been planning the takeover of her room, for about a year and the day finally arrived. {happy dance} I purchased a new/old round table for my craft room and it sat in our living room until I got the bedroom finished. {by finished I mean, painted walls, new carpet} While the table was in the living room, I did sit and color a small stack of images, putting the table to use.
I now have my creating area set up with a sewing machine right across from me. No more sewing machine sitting next to my feet, I just need to switch chairs. {happy dance #2}

Now before you get excited about that small stack of images I have colored up...they are not cards, yet.
I decided that I needed to make a few cards using the NEW 'A Beautiful Day' set by Stacey Yacula & found over at Purple Onion Designs! I can't resist Stacey's artwork. 
Here are two of the cards I have created...
'Jackson & his bubbles', possibly a girl card, but I tend to think of him as a boy card. {a small amount of glitter and no pretty bow} I just love the soft green shade that I colored him in, not the expected brown, is it. I tried to capture the iridescence of bubbles and they have a few layers of clear Glaze pen on top. 
Then, we have this sweet little mouse. {would I ever call a mouse sweet, if it was running around my house? yes, if it had a cute clothes on.} 'Wishing' is a one piece stamp and also from 'A Beautiful Day' set. I really wanted a pale purple dress and my paper stash has hardly any purple in it. {used it for shower  decorations} I picked out a couple pieces of Memory Box paper and went from there. Soft pastels and a plump pink bow. {thank gosh I made a decent bow...it seems like forever}

Both cards will eventually be available at my Etsy store. Time to get that stocked up again!

If you like what you're seeing, then head over to Purple Onion Designs for the release and a sale on the entire 'A Beautiful Day' collection

Love them! Why would I never think to colour the bear green. It's too cute. Glad you finally have that craft room. Hopefully that means many more posts.
