A Red,White, & Blue Cutie

Hello everyone & Welcome to the Weekend--YAY!  I just love weekends, don't you?  I get to sleep in a bit, no real schedule and catch up on all those things that didn't get done during the week, well maybe that part isn't so much fun, LOL!  We have a flower bed to finish up and I have like 10 projects to work on as well so I can get ready for all those looming deadlines!  Alexa is sleeping over a friend's house tonight and then they're going zip-lining at the Massanutten Ski Resort tomorrow--I'm sure she'll come home grouchy & exhausted, LOL!  Riley is off to a friends house as well, so SADLY it'll be just James and me and date night--don't you feel sorry for us, hee hee--NOT!  YAY!  We'll probably both be so tired that we will only make it to dinner like we usually do :) but we'll have fun!


-I have two Copic QuickBitz Videos and they are embedded below my project at the end of this post--they're both on hair coloring with different colors and each are under 7 mins.  I tried to get them both in one video, but that darn 10 minute limit just kills me each time,  LOL!  Hope you like them---they will also be on my other page which can be accessed at the top of my blog under the Tutorials/Templates tab!

4th of July Cutie

Today's card uses a cute & NEW Victoria Case stamp for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design called "A Puppy is Love"--and it has doggies in it so you know I LOVE it (aren't they cute?)!  The sketch I used is from this week's SCS Sketch #283 and I used the colors of this week's TIOT Challenge which were red, white & blue (see challenge details here--you can win a prize)!

I used some new paper from " for the background of this card and then embossed the red cardstock for extra texture.  The double bow was made with my Bow Easy and I hung a tag I made using a sentiment from PTI's set "Handwritten Notes".  Along the top & bottom I used Bella Baubles (in oyster) in the center of each plaid-X for some bling!

This cutie is colored with copics (blues: B39,B37,B34,B32/reds:R27,R22,R20/hair: E25,E31,E50)!  I used some Viva Decor Glitter Liner (in holographic) on the white parts of her shirt and then diamond glaze on all the eyes and the baseball.  I think she's such a cutie!  Hope you like her and enjoy the videos below!
