Jr. Hatter Kimberly

Head on over to Little Miss Muffet Stamps for an Anything Goes challenge!  This is your chance to show any kind of project you're creating this week.  :D.  I've created this card using Jr. Hatter Kimberly.  The Jr. Hatters all have smiling faces with closed eyes but I used some creative color placement and opened up her big brown eyes.  This can be done with all the Jr. Hatters, which is why I like to color them that way.  Oh yeah!

Cheeky Cherry Pie

I am so excited to be on the farm as a guest this month and want to send out a huge thank you to Rosemary and Marie at The Greeting Farm!  I've been meaning to get out my TGF collection of rubber stamps for a while and have actually had a few on the side of my desk calling out to me.  So I am super excited to actually ink them up and add some color.  Oh yeah!

This is Cheeky Cherry Pie from The Greeting Farm and I thought she would be a perfect November project with her yummy baked pie.  I wanted a harvest theme so I chose papers from We R Memory Keeper that had a good color autumn theme.  However, I didn't want everything to be browns and yellows so I added some green for a splash of color. And what color of hair goes best with green?  Well, red hair of course! 

I cut one of the paper sheets down for the frame she is in.  That took a little finesse but I think it was worth the outcome.  Then I stamped and colored the Knife and Fork stamp (from Magnolia) for her to sit on.  The leaf embellishments were fun to created too - I used a leaf punch and colored them with Copic markers to match.  I punched them in the same paper I used to color Cheeky Cherry Pie so the coloring blinded well.

Mystic Unicorn

Do you ever have one of those projects that just doesn't come out right?  This is definitely one of those projects for me.  I usually color the image after I have selected the paper.  When I do, the project turns out better and when I don't, well, it looks like this.  I guess there isn't anything horribly warning but the colors work for me.  Maybe that's just me. 

I colored this Mystic Unicorn, by Whimsy, a while ago.  In fact, I colored two at the same time, one black and one white, because I couldn't figure out which I wanted to use on my journal page.  (You can see the other Mystic Unicorn HERE.)  You can spend more time looking at that one, in my opinion, and just pass this one by.  Move along . . . nothing to see!
