Koala Bear Love ~ Sherri Baldy's Beautiful Image

There are so many uses for this image!  One of Sherri Baldy's Big Eyed Besties, cuddling up with 3 adorable Koala Bears!  I just love how her red hair turned out!!  Sherri always has such beautiful cascades of hair on her images -love 'em!
I colored her with copics-am still not very good with animal fur so often resort to little dots for some texture.  Love the ombre blue hearts against the red shiny hair.  The backside of this P e r f e c t  design paper is a washed blue so it made a perfect complimentary mat for the image. I've been wanting to use some of the lace appliques I recently purchased online, cutting them apart to make them fit the space.  Think they make the cards oh so feminine.
On the inside, I used some paper in the same blue with some script that looks like Love Letters and is accented with blue hearts!
We hope that you'll visit Sherri's Store to find just the right image for your special gift or project!

March 2019 New Release Over at All Dressed Up!

 Hello Dressy Fans!

Wendy, our artist in residence, has been working hard to bring us a fabulous selection of new release images this month. 
As ever, she has not forgotten that Mother's Day (Mothering Sunday) is celebrated in the UK , the home of ADU, on 31st March and there are some new designs that will be perfect for this occasion. All these beauties are available now in the Etsy Store

The Image that I'm using for the new release is called Busy Street and there are so many variations of the same image being highlighted on the blog.  I used copics creating different store fronts-like coloring your own town!
There also a navy satin ribbon & bow that runs under the image.  On the inside I used the purple and black harlequin paper again, using a celebration stamp with some bling. 

Don't forget we have two challenges running right now -
ending on the eve of the 14th March where it's always "Anything Goes with an All Dressed Up Image"
ending on the last day on the month. 
The current theme is "Girlie Girls"
***Please remember your creations must use an
 All Dressed Up Image***

I hope you visit the All Dressed Up site and see all of our lovely creations!

Using Little Miss Muffet image by Sherri Baldy as a Get Well Card!

 This cute "storybook" character is Little Miss Muffet from Sherri Baldy's Digital Collection found in her store.   I had to "girly up" the spider as I'm not a big fan of spiders...and here I am using one!  But with blush on her cheeks I think I will live..  After coloring her with copics, I mounted her on green cardstock to make her pop on the page (as well as some dimensional pop dots on the back of her picture).  Found the perfect designer paper in my stash which continues to grow when I'm not looking-don't know how that happens!  I ran a grosgrain blue ribbon under the image, tied it off in a bow and added blue "twinkle goosebumps"  made by Queen & Co. on the corners.
On the inside I used a rubber stamp I found in my stash and turned this into a Get Well card-the sentiment says "Heard you caught a Bug"  Perfect!
 Thanks for visiting and I hope you will become a follower of my Blog and get inspired by cards for all occasions.
