AuroraWings- Poppy Elf

Hi there Everyone!
It's been a looooong time!  I hope to be back to creating more often very soon but till then I do have a project to share with poor Momma's late birthday card!  

The awesome image is by AuroraWings and her name is "Poppy Elf".  Beautiful, isn't she?  She is lovely to color.  I have a few more of Mitzi's images (she is AuroraWings' artist) that I am really looking forward to coloring.  If you haven't checked out AW, you have to!  You'll soon be addicted!!!

AuroraWings has a Facebook Group (with challenges!) and a Challenge Blog.  Oh, and a Showcase Blog where Mitzi shows new drawings all done up by her Special DT, and also highlights projects like ours (we win a prize if Showcased!!)!!!  I'm probably forgetting something as Mitzi always has something going on!  I am entering Poppy Elf in the Facebook Anything Goes Challenge.

Here she is-

When I look at AuroraWings' images my coloring fingers start to itch and my stomach flops! Mitzi is sooo talented!!!  This is colored with Prisma Pencils.  Sure did stretch my coloring skills!!!  I learned so much and am excited to start coloring another beauty.  I hope you like Poppy Elf.

OK, that's it from me!  Have a bright and beautiful day!


Update- Poppy Elf was picked as one of the "Top 3" for AuroraWings' Facebook "Anything Goes" Challenge! I am soooo honored! New challenges have started on FB as well as the AW Challenge blog.  (Links are above)

Lacy Sunshine Anything Goes Challenge and New Releases!

Oh my goodness, Friends, it seems forever since I have shared a creation with you!  This is a fun way to start the New Year- a brand spanking new challenge at Lacy Sunshine with an Anything Goes theme!  New Release Valentine/Love images to boot!  Love is in the Air at Lacy Sunshine!

Here is one of the New Releases, Butterfly Princess-

A Gate-fold card-
A little close up of this wonderful image.....

Colored with Prisma Pencils.  I copied the little butterfly that is in the lower left corner and made it larger, then cut those out, added wire antennae, and covered with Glossy Accents.  To make the butterflies 3-D, cut 2 of each and glue the center body together.  Fold up the wings of your top piece.  That gorgeous butterfly pin was made by Karen C.  She sells them in her Etsy shop.

I hope you will hop on over to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog and have a peek at my oh so talented teamies creations and also see more of Heather's new release "Love is in the Air" images.  Those Sunshine Girls have such amazing talent and lots of inspiration for you!

Tidy up with Penny's and Saturated Canary!

Oh goodness, it's been awhile since I posted a card!  How are you my friends?  Busy with Christmas?  It's pretty quiet around my place at Christmas time.  Just the Hubby, the pup, and me.  It's okay tho.

A pretty simple card this go using Tidy Up by Saturated Canary.

She was very fun to color.  I hope you like Tidy Up!  And I hope you'll stop by Penny's and take a peek at my teamies work...lovely inspiration!  See you at the challenge!
