Molly's Bit Catch - by Jill

Here's another card I have made with a digi from Lacy Sunshine designed by the brill Heather Valentin !
I wanted to make a valentines card that had a female image on but that was still quite masculine, really pleased with how this one turned out! I think it could double up as an anniversary card also! Here is Molly with her big catch!

The image was coloured with copics, ribbons were from my stash of bits, although I do remember the brown chiffon ribbon was rescued from round the top of a bottle of bubble bath or something like that!! lol papers were from a huge pack I got from Costco, uhh must be 6 years ago! I've barely used them so had a root through them and pulled these out, thought they matched quite well! I've added some pearls here and there and also a silver fish charm was threaded the ribbon before I tied the bow. The sentiment is a rubber stamp I bought from someone of a selling page on facebook! So don't know where it is from unfortunately, but you could easily make you're own to print in a word processing program on your pooter x
Copics used:

Skin : E000, E00, E11
Hair : YR21, YR24, YR27
Eyes : YG05, YG07, YG09
Waders : YG61, YG63, YG67, B93, B95, B97
Hair Bows and Top : RV63, RV66, RV69
Fish : C1, C3, C5, C7
Rod : E31, E33, E35
Water : B0000, B00, B02 
Fly : YR07, YG07   

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like her! Just wish I get my piccies to look better!

Best Friend's Birthday - Mandy

Hi!  Today I want to share with you a birthday card, gift bag and box I made using one of the new precoloured digis in the Lacy Sunshine range.  Now, I love to sit and colour in, but often we just don't have time, or we want to replicate an image a few times like I have here which makes a precoloured image just prefect!

You'll find this image and a few others in the "precoloured digis" section of the Lacy Sunshine online shop, and you can also buy all those b&w digis for you to sit and colour in to your hearts content!

Pickles....BE MINE! (by Deanne)

Here's a card I did today using the Caveman Pickles digi! Isn't he the cutest!!!

I used Copics to color Pickles. I used glaze on his eyes and his tools. The patterned paper is old stash of Scenic Route. The sentiment is also Scenic Route. I inked the edges and then created a lacy border using a border punch. I sewed on the card ,too! There are a couple of flowers and a glittery brad.

My Art Is My Life.

The scrapbooking world is rife with rumors, spread by people with nothing better to do than to propagate lies. I am an open book - if anyone wants to know if a rumor is true, just ask me, rather than fill blog space with conjecture. 

My art is my life - it always has been. I draw for joy and to put food on my table. I have no axes to grind, and I wish no one ill. It pains me to have someone say I copied the work of someone else. Please look closely at my images and you'll know the truth. If someone feels the need to copy my work, I'm sure that karma will set things right in the end.

Lizabeth, Key to my Heart.

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok and getting down and crafty!  :o)

I've been having a bit of a play with Heather's stunning Lizabeth, Key to my Heart digi, which is only available from her Lacy Sunshine store.  If you pay it a visit you might just see a whole lot of digis which are retiring so are on sale at just $1 each!  Wow...and some of them are only a month or so old!

Anyway, here's what I've come up with:

I know I shouldn't say it myself, and it's very rare that I'm totally happy with my work, but I absolutely adore this card!  I'm so proud of it and will be keeping this one!  

If you'd like further information on the sketch I've used for the layout, the papers or the colours I've used to colour the digi, you'll find them on my blog here and here.  

Hope you like it?

Take care everyone
Happy crafting!

Blooming Lovely!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all having a great weekend.

Today's card features another of Heather's new digis which is called 'Happy Lil Flowers' but I call it 'Blooming Lovely!' for obvious reasons.  It's available to buy from Heather's Lacy Sunshine store.

It's not the best pic, I'm afraid, as I have really bad lighting in this house and today's particularly dark.  Poor Pickles has come out very bright in the pic.  Also noticed that the sentiment had slipped (wet glue) when I took the pic but it's straight again now.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and there are more details on my blog if you'd like to know more.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Happy crafting!

Pickles - Sharing the Love.

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok?

I've been busy crafting today and have been having a little play with Heather's gorgeous 'Pickles - Sharing the Love' digi, which is only available from Lacy Sunshine.

I decided that just because he's a cute character that doesn't mean he can't have a 'pretty' backing, so he's got one here:

This is such a lovely digi and it's nice and easy to colour as well, so if you're just starting out then it's idea for you.  I've used my promarkers for this one.  For more details of colours use and the rest of the card please visit my blog.

Take care everyone.
Happy crafting!

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Today unfortunately, I need to make a brief business statement here once again. It truly amazes as to how desperate a company can be that they must mislead their customers, crafters and greeting card designers..... by informing them via newsletters and facebook postings that they will have new digitial stamps released from me! So once again, per my legal counsel, I am letting my friends, fans and fellow crafters know, that due to a contract breach on behalf of this company, I am no longer licensed or affiliated with any other scrapbook or crafting company. The only official and authorized home of my digital stamps... and yes even including my new 2013 designs, is my Lacy Sunshine Company. Anyone else distributing and/or selling my digitial and rubber stamps is in violation of my intellectual property which is registered with the US copyright office. 

 I want to let me fans know that I am very sorry I need to keep reiterating this fact. But a girl has to do what a girl has to do to protect her name and her artwork.   Thanks so much for being my loyal fans and loving my art so.  Now  let's  all get to  crafting!

Until next time......

Fishing for Love.

Hi everyone!

I've been busy again today and created a quick card using Heather's fabulous new 'Fishing for Love' digi, which is just perfect for Valentine's Day.  It's only available from the Lacy Sunshine store and is a lovely easy one to work with. 

If you pop over to my blog you'll see how I made it and the colours of Promarkers I used in case you wanted to have a go the same as I've done it.  Also...if you do go over to my blog, scroll down to yesterday's post as I've put up an image I've coloured which I will be using for a card tomorrow AND there are some big one concerning Lacy Sunshine!  So please stop by and take a look.  Lexie's Cards.  Obviously, if you don't read this today (January 4th) you'll have to scroll down a bit to find both posts, but well worth a look if you have time.

Hope you like this digi.  I think it's a stunner.

Take care & happy crafting.

New Year.

Hello my dear friends!
I want to take a few moments and wish you a happy new year! Now that the holidays are behind me, I have time to retreat to the quiet solace of my studio and fall into the rhythm of my art.
I want to turn the page on my new calendar and clear out the dust of the passing year. I'm enthused about making new designs for digis and painting what my inner eye imagines.
I'm inviting you, my friends, to follow me through the year and share creative adventures with me in my private world of color and texture and help me usher in a bright new year!
