Thinking of 2011

With 2010 almost at a close it is time to look forward to the next year. 
I used the Friday Sketchers Challenge sketch #134 and
am entering it into the challenge,
also going to enter it in the Creative Inspirations Challenge #92

The magnolia image was colored with copics.
She is just sitting there thinking special thoughts for 2011! 
My MS butterfly punch produced the pretty butterflies:
punched out of silver Spellbinders
premium craft foil and embellished with pearls.
The printed paper and gold paper is from
DCWV Mariposa Stack.
The gorgeous flowers are from
Wild Orchid flowers and the ribbon and
silver glitter is from my stash. 

Happy New Year to you and best wishes for 2011.
Thank you for stopping by!


Guys Relaxing

Hello there, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge #130
to create this with the guys in mind.
Everybody has to have down time and this is the result ....

This wonderful image is from Sugar Nellie and appropriately named "Fore!"
We are just entering the Christmas season but it makes me want to get out
on the greens and chase that little white ball around. 
It would help to wear off all the extra goodies
we tend to indulge in at this time of year.
Ingredients:  Stampin Up printed paper,
heavy gold paper from my stash,
coloured with my copics,
edged with stampin up scalloped punch,
image is cropped with deckled nestabilities and scissors,
filigree charms and brads from close to my heart.

This is what the inside looks like to write a special sentiment.

Have a great weekend,
 we are going to shop, decorate the house and put up our tree this weekend. 
 My two days off will go by in the blink of an eye and I will be back at 
work before I know it and wishing for one more day off.  (Sigh!)
Best wishes .... Katheleen
