Yep you guessed it I'm in a Thanksgiving mood! I have been wanting to color this sweet little gal ever since I got her last month. I love Sylvia Zet illustrations, she is one talented lady! I just want all her stamps. I do have quite a few, but every time  I see her stuff I just can't decide what I want. I have a fun little Christmas one that will probably  make an appearance here soon and her name is Holly so you know I had to have that one :)
Hope you had a great week and enjoy the weekend! It's suppose to be a wet and windy one around here this weekend so I will hopefully get some more coloring done and staying dry inside. Good night!

Fall is here!

Hi All,
I think it's safe to say that fall has finally arrived here in Oregon. We had such a great run of the sun, but alas our good friend rain has returned. It is nice to finally wear fall clothes, love my boots! But I will miss you sun, see you in June/July lol
I was asked by Christine at Papernest dolls to color this little sweet image up just for fun, she's adorable! Love the cute french theme. I wish I could pull off a beret, I would totally wear one hehe
Thanks Christine for letting me color her up, I had fun with her. Please check out Christine's website and have a go yourself. Have a wonderful day!

My Daughter's Art

My daughter did such a great job with her coloring that I wanted to post this on my blog. She is very proud of it and I think she did such a wonderful job with colors! She is turning out to be such a great artist and it makes my heart happy to see her loving Copics as much as me. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

CC Designs DT call

It's Friday!! Yippee, love the weekends. I especially love weekends when we don't have a ton of stuff planned so we can sleep in(hopefully hehe) and lounge around in the mornings and just enjoy hanging out as a family. I am excited for Saturday evening though, we are going to go and see Anne of Green Gables theater production. My friends oldest daughter is going to be playing Anne, it will be so fun to see her in this role, she's got the perfect red hair!
Anyways I am very excited to be applying for the CC Designs- design team. Exciting!! I always get so nervous applying for teams, but it's also so much fun! I have used an old favorite of mine from CC Designs- Miss Darby and Dazzle. They are the cutest! I had so much fun coloring these guys up and using some cheery colors.
Hope you will join me in the CC Designs DT call. They have a ton of great stuff on their site so check them out, everything from stamps to dies, paper, the list goes on!
Have a great evening!

Trick or Treat

I really love this time of year, it's quite beautiful and we have had the best weather. We are still getting quite a bit of sun and warm weather, we don't get that here very often so we are living it up. I love the crisp sunny mornings and of course pumpkin lattes too!
I am still in a Halloween mood so I had to color this fun image up! She has been calling my name for awhile so I was happy to print her out and give her some fun Halloween hair. I just recently discovered this company called the Paper Shelter, they have so many great images.
Hope you are enjoying the fall season and getting to do lots of fall activities. Talk soon and enjoy the day!
