and the sentiment. It was a great help and way 
to spend time together.

the coloring below her eyes and the freckles.
It was a true collaboration with my girls. Thank you so much.

Sweet Cocoa

Happy Thursday!
Today, is another very smokey day
with all of the forest fires from B.C. and Alberta
it is effecting our air quality.
Our thoughts are with everyone that is dealing
with these horrible fires.
We are praying for gentle rain for our B.C friends.

Another week has flown by
and so that means
we have a brand new challenge up at Creative Knockouts Challenge
Challenge #259 - Sparkle N Shine
Our wonderful sponsor this week is Sweet N Sassy Stamps.
Thank you so much for letting us highlight your wonderful images.
The image I used is Sweet Cocoa
Prize: $10 gift certificate for digis
The card above was colored using my Copic Markers
The dies circle dies are from Gina Marie
The word jolly, dazzling diamonds and all the paper is from Stampin' Up.
It is hard to tell because my paper in the picture is dark
There is Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, sparkly paper (hee hee)

It was hard to get the right colors of the papers
not sure if that had to do with all of the glitter and sparkle.
It was super fun breaking out this sparkly paper
and the dazzling diamonds that was used on the snowflakes
on the cup. I do love me some hot chocolate.

Baseball Bear

Hello, Hello and welcome to my blog!
How did we get to the first Thursday in August already?
Kind of feeling like July only took about 5 minutes.
We have had the pleasure of camping with our grandson, our son 
and his girlfriend this week. The only thing missing was our
other two kids.
Here is to hoping our camping will become a family tradition with
Emery every summer.

Today, is Thursday and you know what that means...
a brand new challenge over at Creative Knockouts
Challenge #257 - For The Kids
Our sponsor for this week is 
Prize: 2 images
Thank you so much for being our sponsor
and for letting us highlight your images.
My image is called Baseball Bear
Isn't he just adorable.
I colored him up using my prisma pencils
which I am still working on my blending but they are so much fun to use.
The dies are from Gina Marie Designs x-stitch
and the embossing folder is from Tayored Expressions (will double check this one for you).

We would love to see your creations
