bsc#39 here is my card for the sketch challenge #39 papers are CTMH, as are the ric rac. I used copic markers, my first ever time with copics!! they color nicely, but I have a lot to learn ablout shading them. her pants and 1 bag are paper pieced. overall I like how she turned out!
We took the kids to portrait innovations yesterday. these are a few of the 101 pics they took. lol Man they sure do take a lot of pics. I was happy with them. We had them taken yesterday, because this morning, Taylor had to have 6 teeth pulled out. They put her to sleep to have it done. She did really well and does not have much pain, but, I have kept her on the tylenol. She is asleep on the couch right now.

We also stumbled upon a wii fit yesterday. It is so much fun! you know my abs actually hurt today from doing the hula hoop. I recomend this if you don't have it yet. It is so funny you step on it for it to weigh you and it says in a soft high voice... ohhh. Like she cant believe you weigh that much. lol
Well I think that is all for now. We are just going to take it easy tonight and tomorrow and hopefully taylor will feel up to getting out on Fri for a bit. thanks for reading this book I just wrote. have a great day!

BSC #9


taylor and I did the Bella sketch challenge number 9 together. I cut the paper for her but she picked it out and did all the coloring stamping and adhearing. I think she did a good job.

Mine is the one made with the Latte Bella. I used CTMH papers and ribbons. Flower stamps are also CTMH. colored with prisma pencils and gamsol.
thanks for looking and have a great day.

Another Quiet Saturday

Well it is going to be quiet around here again this weekend. Tay stayed with a friend last night, and Bradley stayed with my mom. Tonight they both have big plans to stay with people too. Dave is working so I am having another quiet night alone to create!! I have made several cards for birthdays the last few days and forgotten takes pics of them. I need to make it a habit to snap a a pic as soon as I am done with a card. Well, I will have some pics to post tonight for sure, so check back later to see what I have done.

My friend Amy came over tonight and we played Bella's! It was fun to create with someone. this first card is the one Amy did. It is bubblebella, done with all CTMH papers and ribbons. we used prisma color pencils and mineral spirits to color them. she also added frosted lace stickles to the bubbles.
This one I made, it is Emmybella, I love this one, I used all CTMH papers, prisma colors and stickles also. Embelishments are also CTMH.
Thanks for looking, have a great night!
