12/31 CTMH SOTM Blog Hop

Well it is almost the end of 2010 and another year comes to a close. I had many ups and downs this year - but I was finally able to accomplish one of my 2010 goals - to make a "You Tube" video. So if you have been hoppin' along with us this time, you have arrived from Doreen's blog and have been inspired by her creativity! If you started with my blog, then just follow the links or go to Helen's blog where she has a complete list of all of the CTMH consultants participating in the hop.

12/29 My FIRST Digital Design challenge

I am branching out from my creative tree and trying many new ideas I said I would NEVER try don't say 'never'......:) I have purchased a few Copic markers and have played around with some digital designs from Design to Delight Digital designs. I must admit they do not take up as much space as acrylic or rubber stamps! Here is this week's digital design - Whimsical Cardinals

Assorted supplies from Fancy Pants paper pack, CTMH D1452 Find Your Style -"Soar", CTMH Cranberry grosgrain ribbon, R27 Copic marker, CTMH markers, Sunflower, Sky, Pear, plastic snowflake

As I sit here and freeze in Tampa, Fl (yeah right!!- you are thinking in my hometown of Jamestown, NY!), I can't help but add the snowman props to my photo. This is last week's design Valentine Snowman and Mittens that I was not able to post on time - oh well....
