Cute Birthday Mouse

 Hello and welcome to my blog!
Can you believe we are on the last Thursday
of January. Now, some people
think that this month has taken forever to disappear
but to me it has just flown by.
January is a month with so many birthdays
in it family and friends.
It has been so much fun celebrating
them all!
This month has also had so many people
pass away suddenly and that has been really
hard on so many people.
My thoughts are with them all.
Now let's get to why you are stopping by.

Today, we have a brand new challenge up over at
Challenge #335 - Birthday Wishes
our amazing sponsor is
They have kindly let me color up

I used some of my favorite colors,
red, pink and brown.
The image is colored using
Copic Markers
Gina Marie Design Dies were used to highlight
the image on both the white and early espresso paper.
Rose Petal dies were used for the Happy Birthday
A Stampin' Up punch for the banners and white/early espresso paper and pearls.
The pattern paper is from Little Darlings Paper

A Sailor Is An Artist...

Hello, Hello, Hello
and welcome to my blog!

Today, is what I consider my Project Bin Monday.
Do you know what stamp set this is?
It is called Anchors Away
It has 5 really awesome sentiment stamps!
sailing, nautical stamps, clear stamps,, stamping, paper crafts
The perfect inspiration stamp set
and it can truly be used for anyone.
My husband has always wanted to sail
and when I saw this, it just makes
me think that on the water he would be that
artist, using the wind and water to create
a masterful design.
One day, I hope that Rob is able to check
this off of his bucket list.
The is retired Stampin' Up pattern paper and I used
their oval stitched dies.

Come join us over at The Project Bin Blog
and see what my fellow team mates have created for you
each week day!

up with this layout for the purrfect kitty cat :)
