Ellen Hutson January Pin-Sights Challenge & the 30 Day Coloring Challenge


I have a card today for the Ellen Hutson January Pin-Sights Challenge.
There is so much in this month's inspiration to love. 

My card is also for another day in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Today I used Copic markers to colours the flowers from Essentials by Ellen Rustic Botanicals designed by Julie Ebersole. Today I am colouring along with my friend Ardyth Percy-Robb. This colouring challenge is a great way for us to encourage each other to improve our colouring skills and complete the challenge. We will both be using the same sets.


I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add a Sentiment.

Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try #56


I haven't played along in such a long time which is crazy because I am crazy for Reverse Confetti.

The last few months have been very difficult for me recovering from my collarbone break, and as I write this post I am back in my sling again. This time to protect me from myself? My bone has healed and was cleared by my doctor to go about my life but to be cautious as the soft tissue damage may take some time to heal. After a month of feeling really good I have managed to put too much stress on my arm and I am back to being in quite a bit of pain again. The movements that we do but don't think about are the most painful. So no woe is me, I just have to slow down and use my sling as a reminder to take it easy and heal. Thank you for all the well wishes.

Here is this month's sketch.

...and my interpretation of it.

Muse #249

It's time for Muse Challenge #249!

This week I doubled up and created a card for my son's 23rd birthday and also for this week's inspiration at Muse! I am really having a hard time believing that my boy is a grown man, but of course he will always be my baby--lol. I had to use this fun image for my snowboarding boy. The background was created by smooshing some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink selectively on Bristol Smooth cardstock to create a windy snow hill. I adhered the snowboarding penguin with an action wobble (video clip below) so the whole scene becomes a wild ride. The panel was completed with the sentiment white embossed on a black cardstock strip and then I added white fun foam to the back of it to add even dimension.

I can't wait to see how you interpret this week's challenge.
See you over at Muse!
