DICC #37: Sponsored by Doodle Garden

I cannot believe it. It is officially September 1st. Summer is over, my kids (plural!) are going to be going to school soon. And I will be at home crying. Literally. Thank goodness my daughter only goes in two times a week! Yeah, the quiet time will be nice for me, but man! I am going to miss my babies so much!
So since it is the first of the month, I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you. This itinerary was created by Suzi. We have been sponsored by Doodle Garden this time around.


  1. Plaid/Tartan
  2. Books
  3. Pens & Pencils - as embellishments or to colour with!!
  4. Alphabet
  5. Numbers
  6. Apple for the Teacher
  7. Something New 
  8. Let's Play
  9. Anything but a Card
  10. Bright Colours 


I used numbers 3, 4, 6, 7, and 10. I made this for my Girl. I know she will love it. And, as is often the case, Phoenix helped me choose the colors for her outfit. Which is totally something Rhiannon would wear. He knows his sister's taste so well!  

I colored this cutie with my watercolor markers and my Copics. And my squiggle background was done with a Fiskars texture plate and Crayola pencils. Hell yeah! I went old school! But not for nothing (and I have said this before) Crayola pencils rock. They are awesome pencils. 

I didn't want to get too fussy with this card. I thought simplicity was better here. It's very Rhiannon. I know she will like it. And I hoe she loves school as much as I think she will. She already adores her teacher, so that's a huge plus. Ok....before I get all sniffly and sad, go and visit the rest of the DICC gals to see what they created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
