A sweet heart!

Hello friends.  I hope you are having a great weekend.  It's another beautiful, sunny and warm day here in Florida.  These aren't the colors I had planned to use when I made this card, but I'm glad I changed my mind and did something a bit different.  The digital image is a beautiful freebie from Sugar Creek Hollow.
I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, chalks and my clear Stardust pen.  If you look closely you can see that I embellished the heart with approx. 63 tiny pearls and one of the beautiful pearl stick pins, which my sister sent me. I added a dragonfly punch and Prima flowers to the card itself.

This is a fun set of Q&A from my friend, Bri's blog.  Feel free to copy it and use it on your blog, if you'd like.

Do you have any pets?
I have a sweet, little Maltese/Yorkie mix dog named Princess, who was a gift from my sister.  My nieces named her Princess and she has lived up to her name.  The household pretty much revolves around her. lol  Most days I watch my grand-dog, Caesar, who is a darling little Lhasa Apso.  They are great company for me.

Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
My laptop, my blanket, the phone.

What's the weather like right now?
Sunny and warm!!!

Have you ever been in a car crash?
Yes, it lead to my becoming disabled.

What time did you wake up this morning?
6:00a.m. because I forgot to turn the weekday alarm off.  Silly me!  But, after convincing the dog that we weren't getting up, I went back to sleep. :)

What was the last movie you saw?
Letters to Juliette.  It was so-so.  I'm glad it was only from the $1 rental box. lol

What does your last text message say?
I don't text.

Have you ever been to a different country?
Yes, I've been to Canada a number of times. It's beautiful!

Do you like sushi?
Haven't tried it.

Where do you buy your groceries?
Publix and Walmart

Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?

Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?

Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Glasses - can't wear contacts.

Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Wrap some packages to mail. Work on some cards.

When was the last time you cried?
I'm not sure.  It was when we watched something touching on tv.

What is your perfect pizza topping?
I can't eat pizza due to food allergies, but I like black olives on it.

Which do you prefer - hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
I have an occasional turkey burger - no cheese.
Have you ever had an all-nighter?
Sometimes I'll stay up most of the night laughing and talking with my daughter. :)

What is your eye color?
Hazel. The eye Dr. says I have a perfect ring each of green, blue and brown, but they look green.

Can you taste the difference between (diet) Pepsi and Coke?
Definitely!!! Diet Coke tastes best. :)

  • The first rose of the season bloomed on my hubby's rose bushes. Beautiful!
  • We watched the space shuttle launch safely the other day.  A plane load of sky divers jumped at the time of the launch, so that they could watch it from the air.  Wouldn't that be amazing? We had quite a show with the space shuttle and the sky divers. :)
 Have a wonderful day!!!

Inky hugs!

O Give Thanks!

Happy Thursday friends!!  Wow! It can't get much better than it is here in Florida right now.  We seem to be having an early spring and I'm really enjoying it and am so thankful for it.  My wall hanging has a verse about giving thanks.  The verse is a digital stamp from Deedee's Digis. Visit the Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog to see a great new project every day.  The ribbon is a $1 roll from Michaels, the gems are by Darice and everything else is bits and pieces from my stash.
Maybe in this close up view you can see that all of the papers are sparkly.

Stop and eat the daisies!

Good morning, friends!  I made this card for my DT post on Crafting with Deedee's Digis.  I used the new release set, Seize the Daisy.  I love the sentiment, plus I wanted to use googly eyes on the goat. :)  It's such a fun set.  Check out the rest of the new release sets at Deedee's Digis.  Remember, you get 50% off your order this week in celebration of the Grand Reopening!  Use the special coupon code found here.
I colored the image with Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I used some burlap paper to add to the farm feeling and faux stitched the edges of it.  I popped up the daisy in the goat's mouth, added a popped up daisy to the sentiment, and gave the goat a shiny nose and googly eyes.
  • The Jacaranda tree out back is starting to get leaves.  It's a warm weather tree, so I'm hoping this is a sign of spring. :)
  • I won blog candy at Holley's Blog!!
  • It's a gorgeous, sunny day!!!!!
Have a marvelous day!!!

Inky hugs!
