Whiff of Joy Project!!.

Good morning everyone!!  I feel so behind on everything!!  Kevin made my extra wheels for the scooter. Okay.. Its a Suzuki Burgman 650.. more of a motorcycle than a scooter LOL  but it is considered a scooter. Kevin had to add a three wheeler to it.. so he welded a frame, added two wheels.. and now he has made it all nice and more finished. He is amazing!! So talented!! Anyway!!! LOL  So, every chance we get we are out and about. I'm having a blast on it!!  I'm just too short to ride it two wheeled. But now I feel like I'm playing catch up now. But this weekend we are sticking to home... he is going to make sure all the welds are good and make some little changes and I'm going to craft LOL!!

Okay.. enough of my rambling!!  Today is my post for Whiff of Joy. Our project for March was to make an Easter basket. I made this cute little paper basket:

 This is the front of the basket... The image is Friendship Ride from Whiff of Joy. I colored the image with my Copic markers. I added stitching all over the basket. The papers are Reminisce Happy Easter. I added flowers from my stash.

This is from the side.. just used a different paper on the sides.

This is looking down from the top. I added the grass.. I thought the color was perfect! :)

The image is on both sides.. both colored the same. I used a Spellbinders die for the pink behind the image.  And that is what I came up with for our Easter Basket Project :)  I thought it was a pretty cute basket and really fun to make! :)

Whiff of Joy Christmas.

Good morning everyone!! Today I wanted to share the Christmas card that I made for March. I still need to make one up for February! I used an image from Whiff of Joy - Cookies For Santa. I love this image!!

I colored him up with my Copic markers. I fussy cut him and popped him off the wall. I added the Cheery Lynn swirl at the bottom of the image. The papers are from a Doodlebug 6x6 paper pad. The "Believe" stamp is Paper Smooches. I also added the thick ribbon, the gems, stitching around the papers and the papers are also distressed. It is such a great image! I had a blast coloring him.

Good morning everyone!! Today I made a little something for the Left of Center 1st Year Anniversary!!  I made this using Fire Woman from Delicious Doodles.

I colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils. I fussy cut her because I wanted to show her flowing hair. I created the background with several different sprays. Then I added a little bit of Embossing Enamel around the edge. I think she turned out okay.   I hope you like her!!
