September Free Image and New in the Studio!

Happy September!
The kids are back in school and summer is winding down.  You will have to excuse me, I've been a bit "blog lazy" during the summer months.  September is the most wonderful time of the year.  I have time to get back in to my studio, create fun art and I am fortunate because I have been chosen as a featured artist by Through the Craftroom Door Magazine.

I've featured two cards over at TTCRD.
Hoppy Day features Benedict Bullfrog.  I've added color to Benedict and his lily pad with Copic markers
Magic Card Features Bartholomew Bat.  Bartholomew and his "twin" are flying through a hazy sky at dusk created with the help of my Copics
You're the Best Features Oak Pond Creations Rooster.  You can see that "Georgie" (as I affectionately call him) was super excited when I grabbed my Prisma pencils and added color to his gorgeous self.
I've sketched two new images for the studio.
The first is Whimsy Flower.
And next up: Oak Pond Creations Thirty One
These two have been sitting in my sketchbook for a LONG time.  I just needed a bit of September weather to get me motivated to finish sketching and get them in the studio for you.  I hope they get you motivated to get crafty and create something fabulous!
Don't forget to grab your September freebies over at TTCRD and as always, hugs and happy crafting!

March is WICKED and Full of Dr. Seuss! Free Digital Stamp & New in the Studio

Happy Friday!  This month I want to share a couple of cards I made for family and friends.

I was a lucky lady to get invited to the coolest Dr. Seuss birthday party for two special little boys.
This is Thing 1 birthday boy with his Poppy Steve
...and Thing 2 birthday boy with Grandma Jeni
Look at all the yummy Dr. Seuss goodies!
These are just some of the clever creations made by the
Boys' mommy, Savannah and Grandma Jeni!

 I had such fun putting these two cards together for the boys!

All paper was from recollections, EK ABC punch and spellbinders.  I made the letters with my cuttlebug alphabet die from dinosaur days.

After eating my green eggs and ham and Lorax cookies, I journeyed to the land of Oz and created another card.  My awesome, fun loving sister took me to the Durham Performing Arts Center in Raleigh, NC to see the play WICKED.
(L to R) Sister Donna, Me and my beautiful niece Beth
Copyright laws prevented us from taking any photos during the play but WOW was it fantastic.
For a thank you to my sister and niece I made them both cards with an Oz theme:
 All Oz stamps are by Clear Art Stamps.  I added color with Copics.  Gears are from a jewelry collection I found at Michaels and the flowers are also from Michael's. 
All paper is Graphic 45's An Eerie Tale collection.

New in the Studio.
