Color Me Creative Turns 3!

Happy Friday and Happy 3rd birthday to Color Me Creative! To celebrate we are kicking things off with a hop! If you are already hopping along you would have arrived here from Shannon's blog

Color Me Creative (CMC) is the online coloring resource site of one of my close friends Suzanne Dean. She had a BRILLIANT idea when she came up with the idea to not only have a place to learn but to meet and interact with other crafting enthusiasts. It is such a fun place to hang out online. 

Saturated Canary is helping us kick off the birthday bash. Click here to go to the Saturated Canary blog  and see more amazing images like the ones you will be seeing today. On my card I used Nevaeh- she was a 'I must own her' image as soon as I saw her!

I used the following copics: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R01, YR12, YR14, YR16, YR18, E23, E25, E27, E29, BG10, B32, B34, B36, W1, W3, W5, C3, C5, C7, C9. 

I also used a white sharpie paint pen to add some detail. Suzanne got me addicted to those hee hee!!

We will be celebrating with lots of fun activities over the next few days and Suzanne is also having a BOGO sale on the online copic classes she offers! Click here to go to the CMC site and if you haven't joined yet now is a great time...and it's free to be a member!!

Okay, I need to stop yakking and let you get on your way. Next up on the hop is Michele and while you are hopping along don't forget to leave a comment at each stop of the way for your chance to win one of two craft gift certificates!! 

Happy Crafting!!

Unity Thursday- Time for a New Challenge!

There are card and scrapbook layouts for you to work from
but this colour challenge SCREAMED for me to play with it first!

I stamped up the fun border stamp from this month's KOTM
in the ever so trendy Ombre style
I had fun finding out just how many green inkpads I actually own ha!
I then used this awesome sentiment from March's sentiment set:

Now off to the Lovely Eryn who has made a beautiful Challenge inspiration piece!!

High Hopes Stamps brings some Spring Flowers

As a self confessed girly-girl I do love making cards with all the frills. And I can't get enough of Teal with pink or peach! I coloured up this image from High Hopes stamps called 'Garden of Life'
I love how this image has a 'doodle' feel to it
I added lots of flowers to frame the image and continue with the colour theme. One of those feel good making and giving kinda cards!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Springtime Inspiration...

Spring...oh how I love thee!
In Ontario we are finally seeing the first signs of Spring
I don't know about where you are but here we were starting to doubt it was ever coming!

In searching for Spring Inspiration on Pinterest
I came across all these vintage Ferris Wheel pictures filled with soft pastels
and like that...Inspiration hit!

I LOVE when that happens!

I used the Ferris Wheel image and matching saying from the set 'What I know'
It is the August 2011 Kit of the Month
Sooo addicted to my KOTM's!
(you can still purchase this kit, click the name to find out more)

I found papers in my stash to match the colours I wanted
A doily, splash of white ink and some film strip
done in 15 minutes
that is REALLY good for me lol!!!

I hope these pictures inspire you today
just pick anything out of the images that captures your fancy
and let your imagination fly....

Unity Itty Bitty New Release Hop!

Someone got their crafty mojo back just in time for this fun release and sale by Unity!

This week Unity is releasing Itty Bitty's from previous KOTM based on popular demand. 
I am so glad the ice cubes were chosen...seriously how hilarious are they!
Plus this card took me 5 minutes, not counting the time it took my glaze to dry.

Don't forget while hopping around that not only does Unity have a release today
but it's Thursday so that means sale time!
Lots of images deeply discounted
PLUS for every $8 you spend you get a free stamp!

Next on your path is the sweet, talented and adorable Eryn!!
