Thought for the Day
When you walk with purpose, you collide with destiny.
Good morning my Crafty Peeps!
A little late, again, getting my posting done and up but I hope your Valentines Day was awesome!
My DH was at the firehouse so I spent the day with my son. Had lunch and saw the movie "The Kingsman". Awesome movie by the way ... a couple of unexpected violent spots, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed it and would see it again.
Today is the start of a new Clean and Simple Challenge at

For this week's challenge we are off to"Fantasy" land. Dragons, Fairies, Goblins, mermaids, elves, gnomes, you name it, we want to see them CAS style!
Here is my 5 x 7 card for the challenge.
Last year I ran out of Christmas cards (HORROR of HORRORS) and I did not have time to make more and I refused to purchased pre-made ones from the store. I am determined that will not be an issue this year.
The image called "Enchanted Holly" By Rubber Stampede is colored using Copics I bought last August when I visited my daughter in Japan, Every time I have used them the coloring has been atrocious, so I have been watching some videos and decided to take another shot at coloring. This is my second attempt, but overall I am happy with her.
I prettied up her wings with "Dazzling Diamonds" glitter from Stampin Up! which I like because it does not overpower any colors underneath it.
I masked off sections of the base layer and stamped with a swirl image from The Angel Company.
Added the sentiment and attached the image which is die cut using "Top Note", also from Stampin Up!
