...until we meet again

Just wanted to let you all know, that my family and I have had some very shocking news.  On Monday the 4th of February my Mother suffered a very bad stroke.   This time she was transported to the hospital in an ambulance.     And sadly, tomorrow she will be laid to rest.   Its been a very sad time for me and the family.   

The next blog challenge may be a little late, but we will still have it.   As my mother would want me to go on with my hobbies and to continue on with my business.    She always respected my time.   When I tried to tell her what all I do on my computer she would seem confused by it all... "never mind, I wouldn't understand anything about computers even if you tried to explain it all to me", she would say.   

So I hope you all will understand the reason for any kind of lag in me getting the next blog challenge up and ready.   

Thank you for understanding.     Until we meet again, Mary ♥

Is it Spring yet...??

Hello everyone!   It's Groundhog day here in the U.S.  and according to our lovely day here in Indiana, he saw his shadow.  We know that Spring officially begins on March 21st ...have a little ways to go yet.   To celebrate the upcoming Springtime season I wanted to introduce to you my newest image:  "Awesome Blossoms".. let me know what you think of these pretty flowers in the comments below.  ;)
And follow this LINK to check them out at my Zibbet Shop.

I did the first one without a background color.
Colored the image up with my new Ohuhu Art Markers!
Actually, these kind of resemble Peonies to me... but yet they look like Roses. ;)
I created the image and colored it all in late last night, I wont say how long I stayed up... let's face it, it was fun to use these markers, and I'm still learning.   Just received the markers yesterday in the mail.  

In just a few more days, we'll begin another Challenge..and as always we hope to see you all join in!   Our Theme will be "Flowers"... hey,..this image would look very nice done up in a card.  
These have not been done up in a card yet, I was just getting the feel for the use of these markers... this was done on regular card stock, not too thin or thick.  Not much bleed through either.  

Until next time, have a happy crafting day!

Snow Family Gift Box

We would like to Thank our December Guest Designer - Carol Math, for her beautiful creation using the Snow Family Image.  Instead of just coloring this image up and making it into a card, she took the design and made it into a Snow Family Gift Box!  Totally awesome, see the photo below. :)

So pretty!

Thank you, for being our Guest Designer!

We've got a Challenge....

Hey!  Don't forget this Tuesday the 15th of January starts another wonderful challenge, and we'll be looking forward to see all of your beautiful creations!    Remember - you may enter up 2 entries.  Make sure to make a link to the card you are entering and not the entire blog.    We'd love to comment on all of your cards, but sometimes that isn't always possible.  Please turn off the "I am not a robot" thingy.  This will surely slow down any of our DT Members from commenting.  

Flicker and Photobucket entries can be difficult for us to comment on, as we don't all have accounts.  So, if you don't see a comment.. you'll know why.  

We are a "G" rated & family friendly blog challenge, please make sure to read over our rules before entering.  

And one other thing, please be sure to "follow" our Blog, and we'd love to have you join in with us on our FB Createful Heart Design group!  ♥    Thanks so much - And the best of luck to you! 

Mary and the Design Team
