My Little boy

Hiya Peeps,

No card today.  I came across this photo taken of my son about a year ago.  I just had to share this with you.  

Isn't this the one of the sweetest, cutest photo's you have ever seen.  Every time I look at this I just want to go give him a big hug.  Mommy's little angel....At least at night when he is sleeping!

Mayzy Art

Hiya Peeps!!

To all my friends in the US living on the East coast expecting / experiencing Super Storm Sandy, you are all in my thoughts.  Please keep yourselves safe.  I truly hope that this storm will soon pass and not be as severe as they predicted.

I have so many colored digi images, and decided that it is time I started using them!  So hopefully I will be able to make 2 to 3 cards per week with them, so that I won't feel so guilty when I color another one!!

Here is my card:

I used a Stamp around the Page Martha Stewart Punch, ribbon from my stash, flaback pearls, Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers, the stamp is from Mayzy art called - Looks like rain Xandra, The Design Paper is from BasicGrey - Dasher collection (I have had this for ages!!!), and the Card Stock is Bazzill.

The image was colored with Copics, but as this little lady was colored ages ago, I cannot remember the exact colors I used!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

That is it from me for today!

Happy Crafting

Elisabeth Bell Blog Hop!

Hiya Peeps!

Better late than never!!  For those of you who visited me yesterday for the new Elisabeth Bell Blog Hop Digi - I am sorry my post was not up!!  I do have a really good explanation!  I was busy editing my photo to upload it to my post, when a severe wind and rain storm hit us.  Our power went off.  We are only 2 houses on this specific power grid, so I phoned them.  They said they would investigate.  An hour later I phoned them again, and the dude said the power lines are broken, it'll take about 8 hours to fix.  I thought, are you serious!!!  But I seriously think this guy was taking a chance!  When we phoned him later in the evening, he said the problem was actually that some sort of switch had broken on the sub-station, and that our power will only be back on early today (Saturday).  My personal opinion is that this technician was just too lazy to go out in the weather and check out the problem!!!  It's only 2 houses, so what does he care!!

Ok.  So now that I gave my explanation, let's move on to the HOP!!!

If you hoped on over from the super amazing color artist Rosie, you are in the right place!!

The new digi's name is :  Bella Donna and Hoot

And here is a preview :

Here is my card:

Two lucky people stand a chance to win this brand new super digi from Elisabeth Bell.  All you have to do is leave a comment on the Hop!  2 Comments from 2 random blogs will be chosen and those 2 peeps will get the new digi!!!  You have until 9am, the 26th of October (Arizona Time) to complete the hop!  Good luck to you all.

Your next and last stop is : The Digi Bells Blog!

Have fun hopping :)
