My Best Friend!!

Hello friends & Artists!! How is everyone's weekend going?  I swear I might need to build an ark with all the rain that Ida has brought here to the East Coast--ugh!  I hate rain, I hate dreariness & on top of that it's friggin' COLD--ackkkkkk!  But tonight we're off to a friend's Wine & Cheese Cocktail party so I'm looking forward to some socializing with friends!  And I am sooo sleeping in tomorrow--we had 5 girls for a slumber party last night & they were up till 3 AM--omgoodness, I'm tuckered out & a nap might be in order for me today!  5 almost 14 year old girls shrieking thru the house---sigh---my poor aching ears, LOL!  And then tomorrow I have more work to get done, hee hee, but will hopefully be well rested!

Mo's Digital Pencil

Today I'm sharing a fabulous new digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil called "You're The Best"--isn't she a cutie (she also has this one in a Boy version and an African American boy & girl).  I had to have her cuz' my daughter has a bunny that she's had since she was a baby & she still sleeps with it (she will die knowing I told you that, hee hee)--but it just reminds me of her when she was much smaller :o)  I paired her up with this cheery dp from SU--I just love these colors together! The image was colored with Copics then I added glitter to her hairbands & buttons--diamond glaze on her shoes!  The perfect sentiment is by Kim Hughes "Pet-tootie Sentiments"!  The flowers were made with my MS Hydrangea punches---love them!  Hope you love this cutie as much as me!!

Next up are some elegant CAS holiday cards I made using a Lockhart Stamp Co "Quilt Block #4".  I wanted to use this stamp to make an elegant card, no cutesy or country feel this time!  So I embossed the image with Stewart Superior Filigree gold EB powder (it is the BEST for fine line embossing I tell ya) right on the Memory Box dp (Spice Berry).  I kept the colors simple, cream and red with gold accents.  The sentiment is from PTI's "Holiday Wishes" set onto cream cs and then backed with gold mirrored cs.  Easy to assemble & create--a few of these will be going out to my friends & family this holiday season!

Hope you've enjoyed my projects today & maybe take a little inspiration away with you today!  I'll be back tomorrow with my Copic Creations Challenge card and another Lockhart project for ya!  Have a fab Saturday!

  3. Great cards! I just love Mo's stuff, her images are so fun to color. I just participated in her #6 challenge, although I don't think the Mr.Linky's is not working because I can't add my link to it? Anyway, I love your blog! Can't wait to see what you come up with tomorrow!

  4. Your cards are always to die for. The bunny reminds me of my granddaughter. She carries a puppy around. Thanks as always for sharing your talent with us.

  5. Hi Suzanne, I love both your cards today. They are just so beautiful...I also love the CUTE story about your daughter and her, could not help it. Seriously, your cards are great. Have a wonderful time at your wine and cheese get together. What fun. Sending sunshine your way, Lisa G

  12. Susanne, I LOVE your work and enjoy getting your updates every day in my email! Just to let you know, little Noah's mom posted, on their CarePage for him, a request that cards & gifts stop... You have to be a registered member to see their page, so I cut & pasted her post "Wow!! Thanks! Please STOP!!!! (Posted 2 days ago)
    Wow! The outpouring of love and concern for Noah is just amazing! Scott and I never in a million years thought that so many people would want to send Christmas cards to Noah. However, please note: We did already celebrate Christmas LAST Sunday -- November 8th.


    Noah is very ill. He is not getting out of bed and it's time for Scott, our families, and I to concentrate on our son. His time is very short and he needs us.

    Scott and I would like to say thank you so much for the support and continued show of love. However, we are asking that everyone please stop sending cards and gifts.

    Also, everyone please post the stop order on Facebook and any other websites or organizations that you belong to. We need the peace right now.

    Thank you for your understanding in this request."
    Just thought I'd pass that along. Have a great day! Carla M in NC

  14. Suzanne, love your cards. Fantastic colouring of Mo's very cute image. Your Christmas cards look very elegant. I love heat embossing though haven't done much of it lately. Will probably do some on come mass-produced Christmas cards if I run out of time. LOL.



I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
