Emmie Lou

Hello, Everyone!    I would like to introduce you to my newest image, Emmie Lou.  She is just too cute, cuddling with her favorite kitty!   I had fun putting together a tag, using background colors and spritzing with a little bit of water.  Giving it a watercolor effect.  Then adding a spritz of glimmer mist in canary yellow.  I finished it with a bit of lace, and sentiment.    You can find Emmie Lou in my Zibbet Shop.  Emmie Lou   Thank you for visiting, leave a comment.  Have a great day!  Mary

Hello, everyone!  We are having a FB Challenge going on right now!  You need to be a member to join in the fun.  Here is the link:  Createful Heart Design FB Challenge Alright, to start off with I was asked to be Guest Designer for this month's challenge.  And I am honored.  Thank you, Miss. Robyn for asking me. :)  This is what I have created for this month.  I am using the image: Paige,  I decided to make a tag.  She was a lot of fun to design and to color in... I used Prisma coloring pencils in shades of browns and wine.  To give her outfit an Autumn look. Here is a closer look. Paige The designer paper for the background was given to me, by a friend.  Thank you!   The flat lace, and little flourish of flowers at the top are from Cindy's Laces .  If you've never tried her laces you should. They are pretty awesome!   The other embellishments are from my stash.  That's pretty much it for this post.. We sure do hope that you will stop by and

Now on Pinterest!

Christmas Bell

Have a great day! Mary ♥ Here's Christmas Bell made up into a card. :)

Going Back in Time Magnets

Hello!    here is a project that I made using some materials from my Zibbet shop.  These are cards for junk journals, but since I don't make those kinds of journals, I decided to use them for magnets.  I thought they turned out nice.   See what you think.    Below you will find a sampling of these junk journal cards that I have designed to use in your projects.  And when you make a purchase from my Createful Heart Design Shop, you'll receive them for free, if you would like them!    Here are the two I used in my project for the magnets! Did I forget to mention you'll get the set for Free? And the "card" below was designed to be used for notes or shopping lists..etc! So, there you have it!  I hope you'll come by the Store today!!   Createful Heart Design Thank You for coming by today, please leave a comment. :) Mary
