A very sweet image from The East Wind Challenge Blog which I have coloured with copics.  The DP are all from Teresa Collins.  The die cut out placed over the image is from my stash. The flowers from Forever in Time.   The sentiment from Making Memories.

Just saw this blog yesterday, became a follower and purchased this image, only to find out it was the freebie for signing up for their Newsletter which I had done..

Very windy here yesterday, but some what warmer.  But I gather next week is going to be very cold again.  Some of  our snow has melted causing large puddles everywhere, but we still have lots of snow banks left.

Vintage Golfing

I am dating myself, but when I first started golfing one Sunday we went to a course not far from where I lived and found out that they would not let women on the course on a Sunday.  And I know that there were still a few courses that would not allow women to golf there at all.  Thank goodness everything changed a few years after that. And no, I never wore a long skirt golfing.

Anyway, I think that this is a very striking lady golfer - image from Two for Tuesday, paper pieced and coloured with copics.The DP is from DCWV and the border from Recollections.  I paper pieced the suit with cardstock from Recollections.  The flowers are from Prima. Lace from my stash.

Roses & Butterflies

This sweet little lass is a stamp from Lilli Of the Valley  coloured with copics.  I framed her with a scrap which I had die cut the centre from for a different card.  The various cardstocks were all scraps from my stash.  The corner circle was a sticker from Basic Grey which I enhanced with a copic marker.

My inspiration for the card was from

Tweet Birthday Girl

I belong to a great card group and we meet every Thursday taking turns as the hostess.  Morning coffee, and lunch with juice and or a drink along the way.  Always have a great time - you tend to forget about anything that's troubling you and enjoy their company!

This card is for one of the women in the group, I didn't have a great deal of time to make it, so didn't get into any embellies, thought after I could have added some stickles to the chicks, but it was after I had given it away!  Anyway the girls had fun deciding which chick they would be!

The image and the sentiment is from From the Heart I needed 6 chicks so just repeated the image.  Coloured with copics.  DP from my stash.

Girls Only

Well, the snow keeps falling and the plows are making higher and higher banks of it.  But at the moment the roads are clear and it was a sunny day!

This cute little girl is an image from Digi Stamps For Joy And I have coloured her with copics and used a Spellbinders die to cut her out.  The DP are from Recollections - the Patterned turquoise one and the yellow dot one, both are quite glittery but is does not show up on my blog.  The plainer turquoise is from Paper Pizazz and I edged it with a Martha Stewart punch.  The upper left corner is a die from Marriane  Design.
The flowers are from Forever in Time.

I always like to make cards for younger girls, but next time I think I will pick out some papers before I colour the image, it might make it easier!

It is still very cold outside below zero and you do have to watch where you are walking as there are still many icy patches.  We are suppose to get another snowstorm tonight so don't know what we will wake up to in the morning.  Had a good morning at curling to-day we started a new series which means a whole new team. We did manage to win the game in the last end.

This image is from Janey Digi Designs. I have coloured the image with copics. The DP is all from K & Company , the Butterfly and the sentiment stamp are from my stash.

A close up of the flowers:

I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday but I turned it on its side.
