Little Wizard Cutie

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Once of my closest friends came to stay with us for a few days.  She lives in Florida (I'm in Connecticut) and she flies up a couple times a year and we go shopping!  So we did our part for the economy at the outlets in Wrentham, MA.  I was actually really good I bought three Christmas presents!  My daughter picked out a bunch of stuff for back to school.  We shopped, went to the races, ate out a lot and then I dragged her to a tattoo convention in Hartford.  We saw some amazing art work.  So it's been a fun week.  Back to cards!  This cutie is a Stamp Fairy digi.
Colored with Copics, don't you just love the little owl??  Happy Sunday!

Show Me The Presents!

The latest challenge is posted at The Stamping Boutique and it's all about the presents!!  We have new design team members so come check out their amazing work.
Here is my card with one of my lovely Audrey's!  Colored with copics.  Hope everyone is having a good week, I have a friend coming from Florida to visit at the end of the week, can't wait to see her!  We usually spend days shopping!  I'm sad that the Olympics are over they were amazing, thank you London!  The amount of talent the atheletes have is just mind blowing, I don't understand how they can do some of the things they do!  Everything was fantastic and the opening and closing ceremonies were just unbelievalbe.  My daughter was happy she got to see her beloved group One Direction.

I picked this stamp up at my fave LSS Inspiration Station.  I love Stampavie, their stamps will stamp such a nice clear image.  So I didn't get as many cards done as I thought I would today, I think I did 3 and then I re-arranged my craft table again.  At some point I will get it just where I want it.  My daughter and I headed out to run a bunch of errands.  It had been raining but no big deal, well, we were on our last stop and the rain was so bad that we thought we would wait it out a few in the car.  So I thought I'd check the radar and holy cannoli what a storm!  We had tornado watches so we decided to come home.  To say that we have had severe weather the last year and a half is an understatement so I was a little nervous.  The house was all good and we had power so I was happy!  So anyway back to my card....
Just look at these cute little mice!  Colored with Copics, flowers are all Wild Orchid.  U used one of my Pearl pens to make the yellow dots.  Hope everyone is having a good Friday!

Whimsie Doodle Cutie

Check out this cutie digi from Whimsie Doodles!
I have had this paper forever and as soon as I saw this image I knew it would be perfect.  I think it's from Queen & Co.  I love blue/green combos.  So glad tomorrow if Friday, I have the day off again and am hoping to get some crafting time in.  I'm running out of options of things to watch on Netflix I think I've exhausted the horror/thriller/mystery/zombie/viral plague/natural disaster selections!!  I am patiently waiting for the second season of The Walking Dead to be available on disc two and a half more weeks!  Can't resist anything zombie related lol!  Hope everyone had a good week!

Halloween Fluffles

Fluffles has to be one of my favorite characters ever, I think my first stamp that I tried Prisma pencils and OMS with was a Fluffles.
Colored with Copics, the paper and buttons is Doodlebug.  The web punch I just picked up at JoAnns the other day.  I'm tired today, stayed up to late watching the Olympics but I can't turn off the swimming or diving!
