Another b-day card to share today. This image is called, "Good Pony," I coloured it with Copics awhile ago (sorry, no colour list with this one) and finally got around to using it on a card.
Here is a close-up:
I hope you are all getting crafty lately! It is therapy for the soul.

Hope you are enjoying Spring! Yay that it is finally here!
I have an oldie but a goodie for you today - "Lend Me Your Ear," a rubber image I did awhile back.
This is stamped on water colour paper and coloured with good ol' fashioned water colour paints!
Image can be found HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! Be Blessed!

Hi Peeps! Good news! Whimsy is making it easier for shoppers on their website! They are gradually changing their black and white image displays to coloured versions of each stamp. It will be easier for you to envision the possibilities when you see the way colour brings them to life. The colour is also a suggestion as well, so that you can either copy the same colours you see, or, use them as a jumping off point for your own colour decisions. I have just begun the task of colouring all 148 of my images for them, and I wanted to show you some of what I have so far. These are three of my newly released images found at Whimsy HERE.
There is also a blog hop going on right now, and if you get this message on time (before noon on Jan 16, EST) you still have a chance to do the hop and get yourself entered into the draw for prizes! Just go HERE to start hopping. Thanks for visiting today!

Edited to add: The blog hop is on until Monday Dec 22 at noon EST.
To thank you for taking time out of this busy season just to do this hop with us, I'll be offering up three digi's (winner's choice) from my digital collection of images at Whimsy Stamps to one commentor. All you have to do to be eligible is leave a comment on this post. Denise has a prize handy too, so don't forget to visit the last stop as well!
Today the Whimsy DT members (plus Yours Truly) are hosting a friendship hop in honor of a special member of the Whimsy Stamps family, Simonne Clay. Simonne has been a fixture here at Whimsy for many years and we all just wanted to show our appreciation for all that she does for each of us and for sharing her amazing talent as an illustrator. Simmone has gone above and beyond to show support for Whimsy and to help out fellow members of the Whimsy team. Her presence will be missed by many of us here at Whimsy, but we wish her all the best in her new ventures. Thank you Simmone, for brightening up my life personally and for giving so much to our Whimsy Team! I will miss you!
I'll be sending this card to Simmone. I used, "Special Delivery Pup", one of my older rubber images. I stamped it on water colour paper and painted it with water colour paints. Die cuts are "Elegant Flourishes". Sentiments also from Whimsy.
The heart is embossed but it was a "repurposed" piece from a store-bought card! I thought it went nicely with the rest of the card.
Had to refrain from any sort of embellishing that would fatten up this card as it has to fly overseas. So no pearls, flowers, lace, pop-ups, charms or distressed edges. I kept all the embellishing flat. I'm hoping it works, even without all the extras!!
Be sure to pop on over to Denise's blog now, the last blog on the stop. Here is your blog list for your convenience:

Another one in my Jungle Bells series of images, this one being "Jungle Bells Two - Elephant" found at Whimsy HERE.
For a complete Copic list, please refer to THIS POST where I have used the same image on another card - both are originals, I just used identical colours.
I'd like to enter this card into the current Whimsy Challenge running for the whole month of December. Theme is "Anything Goes."
Thanks for stopping by!

I used "Christmas Turtle and Dove" on this card. Been itchin to make a card with this image.
Coloured with the following Copics:
Turtle: W1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, R20 (cheek blush), YG61, YRo9 and YR23 on dots, YG93 on seams between plates. I wasn't quite happy with it, I wanted him to be more green, so I went over the whole thing ('cept the dots) with G20, 21, and then I liked the colour. I also used Zero blender for some texture.
Hats: R20, 22, 24, 27, 29, 46, 59, RV99, Blender 0
Dove: C0, 1, 2, 4
Greens: G24, 28
Background, ground: E40, 41, 43, 33
Beak: E53, 55
White of hats: B000, 60, BV20, V95, C0

I did another card using Jungle Bells 1 Lion from my recent Christmas release in September. I will refer you to my September post for the Copic list if you need it, I used exactly the same colours.
And if you are interested in the type of fake snow I use, it is called, "Snow Tex" by Deco Art. But I also add crushed glass for the sparkle because Snow Tex has nothing in it to make that sparkly snow look. I do love the texture it gives though.
I'm entering the following challenges:
Hope you're being mightily blessed today!
Thanks for coming by!
