Looking Forward

Hello everyone!   I've been spending the wee hours of the morning doing a bit of online shopping.  I don't usually get out much to go to the local craft stores...probably will go around or just before the Christmas season to see what they have to offer.   Anyway.. before I get too carried away... the store I tried this time around is   A friend of mine told me of the beautiful lace they have to I couldn't resist. ;)    And speaking of lace.... I have a stash of my own stuff... that I can never seem to find when I'm crafting.   So, I am trying to do my best to get a little more organized.  Wow what a job! ;)     Here's what I've done so far with the ribbons for easier access -  Just put those all in one tote.   And this is what's left to go through.    This will take some time...but it will be worth it. We are looking forward to our upcoming August 15th Challenge - Are you

Encouragement from the Heart

From my heart to yours... Psalms 29:11- "The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace."

June is about here... and something just for you

I am posting again after a long absence.   Since the other post was a bit gruff sounding, as if I was totally fed up with blogger....and I was at the time, and still am to a certain degree.    Before all the happenings around our house, I was in the process of getting everything changed over... but at this moment... I feel that I'm in a holding pattern so to speak.  Which simply means that I will wait until I'm fully sure that I will be making that trek to a new "blog home".    I just want my followers and visitors to know that I did not jump ship.  I would not do that.... I would let you know should the ship be sinking... and currently the ship is sailing just fine.    This next paragraph is totally off the subject... just didn't want the reader to become confused.**   To make a clearer statement... After we returned from a very relaxing trip we came home to find that our washing machine decided to fail, turning my entire load of laundry into a greasy speckl

New additions

Here's an example of a designed card using one of the new images. We appreciate you, our visitors. ♥ Have a wonderful day.

Victorian Lady *Update*

I think this turned out pretty well... had to think what would work for this Victorian lady.   This time I cut the image out.   Colored in with Prisma watercolor pencils.   Added a pink and teal flower (that I made).    It would have taken me a month to look through my entire lace and ribbon collection.. so I settled on this white ribbon with lace.   Let me know what you think.   Honestly, I feel that I do a better job with creating drawings and digital artworks.   Sometimes I don't feel that I do a very good job in creating pretty cards.  But at least I do try.   I'll give myself a pat on the back. :) Here's the picture:    And here's another angle to see the face more clearly.  ta-da! Now, I didn't realize how small the printing of the picture would be so... it took some careful attention to detail to make sure I colored in the eyes just right.   And still, it looks like I could have done just a tad bit better.    Well anyway... these are just samples of

What a processor can do....

When the old computer decided to kick the bucket... hubby thought I could possibly have fun creating with the processor.  Hmmm...  so, I just happened to have just the right size block for it.    And this is what a processor creates.... Lots of tiny background dots. 😃

Hello!  Today starts another week of Color Challenges over at  The Outlawz  !!

I've got good news!  In the coming days ahead, my friend Millie Mouse and I will be hanging out in our new home...  Createful Heart Digis ... and because we got to know some of you... we can't wait for you all to come by and see us.   But first, like any new store... it does take time...from what we've been told... so as you're are reading this so quietly.  We don't want to wake up you know who...  Good day to you. zzzzzz Hettie Hedgehog ♥

Carley on the beach card

Good Morning, yes, its getting to be habit with me to stay up extremely late.   The creative side of my brain starts kicking in around midnight...don't ya know!  :)    Well, here as promised... a card with my newest digital image, Carley on the beach.   Which you'll find, just click on the link..  Createful Heart Digis   at our Etsy store.     I always use prisma watercolor pencils.  And this time I used a blending water brush to help with the tinting of the water that surrounds the beach. I just love how this image turned out.  Carley is my favorite, with the Sunny Day Swing following in a close second!   Thanks for visiting... and if you like, leave a comment! ♥ Mary ♥

Hello and Howdie!

Hello, to all my fellow followers and visitors. ♥ I'm still here.   Yes, I am.   I have been "nursing" my leg due to injuring it about a week ago.  Ugh.    About all I could do was keep it elevated, keep the heating pad going.    I'm not really sure how it happened... all I know is that my muscles had a "twisted" feeling.     Thank the Lord, it's finally on the mend.   Now, my lower back is feeling the pinch.    And this is bad because, I sit at my desk quite often, either working on my laptop or drawing.     This evening, I've been drawing....   I'm currently working on something in the background {so to speak} that I'll be able to share with you all, at another time.  Until then,  have a good morning... can't really say evening... as I have stayed up rather late again tonight... ♥  {I mean, morning!}  LOL Mary♥

Rose Serenade

"Rose Serenade" Happy Friday! Here's my digital stamp.   Hope you'll want to use it for Valentines Day cards or just send it to someone special. Mary ♥ * I plan to make a card using this image, it will be posted later. :) Here is the finished card. :) I wanted a card for my Mother. "Just Because" Originally thought it could be used for a Valentines Day occasion.. but whatever the reason its nice just to let them know you care. ♥ Materials used: Base card stock is peach Also a medium green Pastel peach was used for the front. Sizzix folder  The rose was colored in using Prisma water color in carmine red. The leaves and stems were a combo of greens, tan, brown. Butterfly cut-out  Tombow glue & glue dots Folder was lightly touched with chalks.

Cat's at Play

Good Morning!    I wanted to create something for those of you that like cats.  They are such playful creatures... as you will see in this image that I have for you.     "Mitzy & Gracie" Here's the card I made.   I wasn't quite sure what color the curtains should be but it really doesn't matter... as this is just an example.  I have used prisma pencils. Cream, red, grey card stock. We have a cat, he's 15 years of age...raised him from just a tot, at the age of 6-1/2 weeks.  Fed the little fuzzy thing with an eye dropper.   He was such a cutie pie. We named him, Mudpie. :) As long as my husband and I have been married, we've not ever had 2 cats together.    We've had just a cat.  I was raised up around kitties.   And used to have such fun watching them at play!   I still remember this... and wanted to capture some of those memories.♥ Thanks for dropping in... Have a good day! ♥ Mary Here's Mudpie.

Best Friends ♥

Here's my newest image "Best Friends".   I will be creating a card using this image as an example.      Hettie Hedgehog & Millie  This is just an example. Added a bit of lace and flower. ♥♥ Mary
