Freedon Isn't Free Quilting Bee

How many of you know Holly from AnySoldier.com? - Holly Hasper, her husband Andy and their new daughter. Amelia was born on 10-1-12 at 27 weeks gestation. She weighed 2 lbs 2 oz and was 13 inches. She is currently battling an intestinal infection and a heart defect common in micro preemies but over all is doing pretty good. When Mary Anne sent Deni the squares for the baby quilts a couple of years ago, she had some left over waiting for another military baby. She believes God wants her to make one for Amelia. I agree full heartedly.  Above is the quilt with one of the squares I had submitted for the quilt. Isn't it just precious! Along with the quilt I hope each of you reading this says a little prayer for Amelia's full recovery!

Make it For A Man- MIDWAY

It's MIDWAY time at Digistamps4Joy! Midway means this is the half way point for our challenge!

The man in my life likes to fish so I am always drawn to images for men that relate to his passion. Then the wood grain paper, my husband was a trim carpenter for over 20 years and now owns a cabinet shop. So I had him in mind when making my card for the newest challenge at Digistamps For Joy which is themed, Make It For A Man. We would love to see what you create for this challenge so come on over to the Digistamps4Joy challenge blog and show us your creativity!

Sketch Challenge at Stamping Dragon Designs

Today begins my first challenge as a designer for Stamping Dragon Designs! I am so excited to play with these outstanding digis! For this weeks challenge it is a sketch and I decided to paper piece my digi choice "Ellie" and stick on a jiggly eye with lashes to give her that extra feminine touch.

I know a couple of little girls that adore elephants and the these colors together. I had them in mind when I was creating my card.

I hope my card has inspired you to go take the challenge at Stamping Dragon Designs! There are many more wonderful cards created by this very talented design team! Come play along and enter for your chance to win some amazing prizes!

Here Lil' Piggy!

Oh my goodness I just love this little fella I was given from the Crafters Digital Art Center's Progressive Challenge! I loved Charlotte's Web as a kid and this little piglet reminded me of the story in which I adored as a child. As soon as I seen it I thought he's perched for some reason  and instead of Charlotte the spider, he's perched for a butterfly that has landed on a Quilled flower. He also was the perfect rounded shape and space I needed to practice for my Copic Class 1,the light source with my Copic Markers. :)
