It's a new challenge over at Some Odd Girls and this month we have a color combo for you! It's a fun one too - anything with browns and pinks is fun. :D Be sure to head on over to the SOG Blog and check out all the other DT inspiration!

The image I used is Foxy from Some Odd Girl. Now I know foxes are normally red but brown foxes do exist and I wanted to give this cutie and new look. :D So I reached for my E40s and colored away.

For my project I created a tag and I decided to bring out some fabric to add to the mix. Then I used a Whimsy tag and layered it with a Make it Crafty chippies, painted in black. For the embellishments I sprinkled some dragonflies and gems and finished it off with ribbon. I'm getting a nice stash of tags and can't wait to start using them on gifts.

As a final project, I wanted to share a project from my oldest daughter. She took one look at me stamping Foxy and exclaimed that she wanted one too! Plus she wanted me to stamp a few other stamps that were hanging around on my desk. :D Here's her project and she even got to use my Copic markers - ah, what a day!

Hope you've enjoyed today's inspiration and thanks for stopping by. Cheers!


  1. Beautiful tag, Barbara! I love your daughter's project - so creative.


  2. Your daughter's card and your tag are both fantastic! Great coloring and design on both!

  3. Oh my Barbara - what a stunningly adorable tag. Love the cute Foxy and your daughter's project is super. That's the danger (or wonder) of having daughters who like crafting :).

    Hugs, Mette

  4. Love the two projects. You're daughter sounds like a right cutie, lucky her for getting to use your markers, ey! :)

    LOVE your tag, I love your little disclaimer about the brown foxes, as if you need to explain to us!! I love your colour work - rocks my socks!!

    Thank you so much for sharing. xo

  5. Wonderful tag! Very cool!

    And I love that you share your daughter's creations too. Mine is taking a little break from coloring but I know she'll be back to it soon! LOL!

  6. Barb, this is so cute! Love the way you color foxy.
