Time for a Special New Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns!

 What a trifecta of blog hop goodness!  The Cherry Blossom Mer-Ween Hop by our favorite designer, Leigh!  My offering tonight was created in Procreate on my iPad and can I say what a wonderful program Procreate is for a very reasonable price!  I love it lots!  I do still prefer to create something I can hold in my gluey hands at the end of the day but there are times when health issues prevent me from sitting at the craft table.  Knowing I am not the only one with this issue, I am quiet happy to show some creations made digitally with Leigh's gorgeous New Releases, too!

I bought the Cherry Blossom Digi Stamp Collection Bundle which comes with 2 fantastic little geisha dolls with sentiments, cherry blossom branch (which I used on the project above) and three cherry blossom frames PLUS a free Japanese clouds digital stamp (also used above!)! 😻  I used one of the sentiments from Parasol Geisha Doll and these were all included in the collection!  I colored and layered each layer, trying to get some shadows behind the cherry blossom branch and the sentiment.  I added rain with the gorgeous cherry blossoms falling as a final touch!

That is my day one entry to the slendifirous blog hop!  All the links to the details and linky party are below!  Come join the fun! 
P.S.  There is also a a Cherry Blossom SVG Mega Bundle out with the New Releases!  This includes all the above items PLUS gorgeous Print and Cutz sets that are amazing!  Next on my wish list for sure!  All of these are also available in individual sets, too, so have a look around in the shop!

This is a stress free month long progressive hop which means new makes featuring any of the 3 themes, Cherry Blossom, Mermaids and Halloween, can be linked up daily but players are free to play when and as much as they want throughout the month following the participation rule.  On the day(s) you decide to play please make sure to visit all the makes linked up on the same day(s) and leave lots of love, including on this post too please, as you hop along and enjoy all the fabulous creativity!

Good Vibes Kitty for SUYP Challenge April!


I colored this little kitty up in January and he has sadly been tossed about and had things piled up on him since then.  His fur got a little bit our of hand and I had never colored a balloon with markers so I wasn't thrilled with him.  As I realized April had gotten away from me and I hadn't entered Ike's Show Us Your Pussycats Challenge, I decided to stamp a sentiment on him (park lane clear stamp) and give him the bright colorful background he needed to soar in!  He has grown on me! 😽  The cutie is by Polkadoodles and he is a freebie!  Purr-fect Wishes!

Ike’s World Challenges Midway April Post😊

 I don’t know about you all but life needs to slow down just a smidge so I can catch up!  My azaleas and wisteria have bloomed and been washed away before I could even get more than a quick pic of them!  Oh well,  it is mid-April and time for me to show you the cutest dang image in the world by Ike’s Art πŸ₯°.  This set is Gnome’s Beach Set!  This took me back to my 12 year old self and grabbing these little suckers at the fair!  I got this set last November? maybe, and although I have NOT wanted to rush our cooler weather away, I was eager to use this one!  So here they are all dressed up (well, you know what I mean!) and ready for Ike's World Challenges #143 Springtime/ Anything Goes!

Started out all markers until sooo many of the Spectrum Noirs were dried up so fast track to acrylics for most all of the background and markers for the gnomies.  The sentiment is from Park Lane at Joann’s  and I just snagged it today for these guys spring break photo!
Now come on and get busy creating some fun makes for the challenge this month!  We are on challenge number 143 Anything Goes/ Springtime!  I skipped right to summer cause it is hot as blazes here!πŸ’₯
As I was typing away at this I realized my project can be Anything Goes or Sringtime! (the spring break photo part cleared that up in my head)   I know my mind is a terrifying place to be most of the time!  See ya soon!

International Bat Appreciation Day Blog Hop~

 I really can't get enough of the Batleigh Bats aka Bram, Grimm and Betsi!  I found the blog hop last night so I could only muster one new project but I thought I would reshare the drama of the bat signal being answered guessed it- The Batleighs!

International Bat Day Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns!

 The faBOOlous Batleigh trio by LeighSBDesigns is out to try their best to spook us!  Watch out!  Grimm, Bram and Betsi Batleigh have the light of the bat world behind them as they swoop into our homes!

I used a Halloween lantern cut file from Dreaming Tree that was a freebie!  Sadly no vellum was to be found in my stash so parchment paper it was colored over with a yellow marker.  Then it was all up to a bit of glue, some fussy cut out Batleighs, and some twinkle lights stuffed in the lantern! 

I am ever so late to the party but I am off to post my lantern at the International Bat Appreciation Day Mini Blog Hop presented by LeighSBDesigns!

March 24th Spring Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns!

 Well, I am officially a year older since Monday but in this past year of uncertainty and worry I am wearing this birthday like a badge of honor for sure!  Spring is coming in like a lion here in the South and I do hope it goes out like a lamb!   I haven't played as much as I wanted to at the Spring Blog Hop hosted by Leigh;  time just is not slowing down a jot around here!

I am still playing with my marker classes.  This was a bonus lesson from Kit and Clowder.  Each month if you are a member of the pencil or markers (or both) classes you receive a free bonus lesson.  This was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I have a very few of the greens in Copics.  This will look good in a frame I think! :)

The Spring Blog Hop linky party is HERE with all the details on how to play plus the Hop Rules! The hop closes at 5 minutes 'til midnight pacific on March 31st.
