May I present Mr. & Mrs Teddy....

Happy TGIF fellow crafters! Are you ready for the weekend? I can tell you I'm sooooo ready and can't wait to get my feet up and relax. But before I do that I like to show you another creation. It's a wedding card and I made it a while back. It was actually a custom order hence the color combination, image embellies etc. The lady who ordered the card (she approached me through my Etsy store) was very particular in what she wanted and then when I had everything ready she never got back to me nor did she pay for the card. I've never had any problems before with custom orders but unfortunately from now on I will only do custom orders that are paid for upfront - live and learn. I already un-customized some parts. The couples names were included in the front design of the card and on the inside was a personal computer generated sentiment added. Luckily I was able to remove all that and therefore the card is not a total loss. The image is a Whimsy stamp

Happy Sunday Everyone! For everyone in the US a Happy Memorial Day Weekend and I hope you all enjoy the long weekend :). Our weather down here this weekend is just beautiful with temps in the low 80's, sunny, humidity down and slightly breezy. Just perfect to sit outside in my favorite chair by the pool and reading my new Dan Brown :) The card I want to share with you today was supposed to be on my blog on Thursday already. But unfortunately due to an inflamed sciatic nerve I was not able to finish it in time for Whimsy's May Release Review Day Hop on Thursday. Since I'm feeling much better now and had the time to finish it up yesterday I can post it today :) The image I used is Bonnie from Whimsy's Elisabeth Bell collection.  I LOVE mermaids and there are four in this release alone :) I colored her with my Copics (Tail: B0000,B000,B21,B24,B26,B29, Shirt: YG18,YG13,YG11, Skin: E000,E00,E21,E11,R11,R20 Hair: E50,E53,E43,E57).

Whimsy Stamps May Release Sneak Peek Hop!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps May Release Sneak Peek Hop! Today some of the Whimsy DT will showcase a few of the new May stamps a day prior to the official release tomorrow. Of course there is also a prize hidden on one of the participating blogs so make sure you leave a comment on each blog for a chance of winning 2 new release stamps! YAY! :) For a list of all participating blogs please see the Whimsy Inspirations Blog or scroll down to the end of my posting. Here is my sneak peek creation: I used Naughty Puppies from Sylvia Zet and they were colored like always using my Copics. This time I did not make a note on the markers I used, sorry about that there was just not enough time. I made a little gift set consisting of a small round box and a handmade Post-it note holder. Papers I used are from an older Whimsy's Designer papers collection called 'Vintage Harmony' . The sentiment on the Post-it note holder is included with
