Sandy, The Little Witch

This little witch will most likely be my last Halloween project this year!  
Created last night while listening to Hurricane Sandy's wind howl and rain pummel our house.  
She was quite the storm. Thus, I've christened my little witch - Sandy!  
Not that this little one would cause such havoc...she's way too sweet, don't you agree?  Maybe because I was treating her kind and gentle, she returned the favor?  As we were lucky.  No lost power, no damage...

Just a very soggy paddock.

I used a new product I've been playing with on this project...

Creative Inspirations Paint - Blue Ice.

It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but added such a nice shimmer to her dress and the lacy border (and a wee bit in the web on the tag)!  I can see myself going broke once again in the near future getting lots of awesome glimmery colors!

The little witch and "boo" is from the Phyllis Harris Unity Stamp kit, "A Tiny Witch" (such a darling girl) and the ribbon is a the 3GirlJam Crinkle ribbon, "Spooky Bundle".  Everything else, from the punches to the cardstock is Stampin Up! 

I used watercolor card stock and my Schmincke watercolors (LOVE these more than any other watercolors I've used!) and after it dried a minute or two, I painted her dress in strategic places with the Blue Ice paint.  The effect I was looking for was the shimmer that would naturally occur when walking in sparkles!  I think it worked.  Then I wanted to carry the shimmer forward...that's why I painted the lacey border (also watercolor card stock) with the same paint.  I believe all the added shimmer brought out the shimmer in the crinkle ribbon.  What do you think?

So, there you have it.  My stormy little witch (she really gets around, doesn't she!)

Straight to you from me..Drying out on the east coast!

Looks like we were thinking alike this week, but I like your witch much better. I've never heard of watercolor card stock. I'd love some info on that, if you'd be kind enough to leave a comment on my blog or email me again

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night! Enjoy.

Precious Boy

A quiet, misty morning walk in late March 2012. This little precious boy puts a smile on my face every time I look at him. I mean, really, who wouldn't smile like there's no tomorrow at this little guy?  I love him.  Every. Little. Thing. He almost (ALMOST) competes with my husband. My sweet husband with a similar expression.  What do YOU think?
