Coffee + Friends = Perfect Blend

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am loving these new papers I got from Graciellie Designs. I have never used digi papers before but I am LOVING THEM! I was inspired by the White Rose Crafts Sketch Challenge (see below) and Your Next Stamp Let's See Some Smiles Challenge! This is just such a cute little coffee cup!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What image or saying is on your coffee mug?
A: Me? Mine says "Exercise Is My Drug" and I have another one that is kettlebells and another "runner girl" are you sensing a theme?

You Are Mermazing with Ariel & Flounder

Hi Crafty Friends,
Who doesn't love DISNEY? Especially Disney Princesses! I decided to color this amazing Tiddly Inks Mermaid like Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Then I colored the little fishes surrounding her like her best friend Flounder! (see bottom of the post to see what I used as inspiration) I created the background blending distress oxide inks and splattering it with water. Then I finished if off with the "Mermazing" sentiment and 4x "I Am Roses" Flowers to match. This is my second entry for the Tiddly Inks Design Team Application because I have SO many favorite Tiddly Ink Images! Wish me luck! And click the link below for more information.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite Disney Princess?
A: Me? I love Cinderella! My Prom dress looked exactly like Cinderella I even reused it twice to dress up like Cinderella for Halloween!

I Love You S'More

Hi Crafty Friends,
Who says Valentine's Cards have to be all cuddly bears and cupids? I think PINK Penguins are PERFECT for Valentine's Day! Wouldn't it be amazing if Pink Penguins existed? I had so much fun with this S'more Love stamp set from Reverse Confetti. The background is a NEW die cut plate from Birch Press Designs called Cherish Layer B and I took the pink hearts from the inside of the die and POPPED them up! Then finished it off with the sentiment on a banner die from Kat Scrappiness! Hope you have someone special this Valentine's Day to share S'MORE LOVE!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: If you could make any animal PINK what animal?
A: Me? My favorite animal is a Panda so I would make a PINK and white Panda!



Supplies:
Copic Markers
