You're In My THoughts and Prayers



Hello Fellow Crafters,

Hoping you are all well and starting your new year with good health and exciting goals.  I just had my final Christmas celebration with my Grand Daughter so I am feeling excited about starting the New Year and am ready to rock and roll.  My main goal is to eat healthier since I can't exercise. I gave up coffee about three months ago and started on healthy fruit smoothies made on my new NutriBullet900. It has helped calm my Crohns disease some and even took my levels of Cholesterol and sugar levels down. I am so happy about that.   I hope to find more types of healthy drinks to make and move forward with a healthier lifestyle.  Every bit helps...because I love to eat.


Now to share with you a new My Besties digital image498 by Sherri Baldy I got to play being on the My Besties Facebook Design Team. 

Until next time this Shabby Chic Grannie is out. Be blessed...be safe and smile Jesus Loves You.

Can You Bag it Please...

My Besties/Sherri Baldy Pre-Colored digital image Scan0001
Hello Fellow Crafters,

I hope everyone is doing fine and settling after the holidays. I am still celebrating Christmas this weekend with my Grand Daughter. So I am stepping out and Posting this decorated bag I made early for her Birthday. It looks so pretty in person. I put bling on all sides of the bag and am featuring this Pre-colored adorable pink haired My Besties/Scan0001 in the front. She has a "B" on her crown which led me to think she is the Birthday Fairy but her official My Besties digital number/name is "Scan0001" and is available in Sherri Baldy's Etsy Shop as a Precolored printable digital image. I just printed her 5 times and made her into a 3D decoupage image. I printed her quite large a whole five inches tall and she is gorgeous. I added some glitter to her crown, dress, flowers and wings and liquid pearl drops to her dress.
I hope you love her as much as I do.  I had premade this card I am sharing below with her and later realizing it would be great to make a pretty gift bag with her in 3D. For the card I cut her out from the printed copy.  I would like for you to see.
My Besties/Sherri Baldy Pre-colored Printed digital image - Scan0001
I would like to enter my Gift Bag into the following Challenges.
My Besties Pretty PreColored Printables Challenge - Anything Goes with a Besties Printable
C.R.A.F.T. #293 - Not a Card

Until next time...Be Safe. Be Blessed  Hugs,

Ducky Smiles

My Besties Digital Image 4972 - Designed Sherri Baldy
Hello Fellow Crafters,

Sharing my fun play with this adorable My Besties/Sherri Baldy digital Image 4972. Available here: I fell in love with the cute duck and attempted very hard to color it. I looked at a couple of Youtube Spectrum Noir Videos on Animal and blending coloring. And then gave my whirl at it. I am happy how the yellow's blended. I know with practice I can do better since this was my first try at it. I did practice blending the yellows on plain paper and choosing the ones I felt were going to work for the cute duck.
Card Recipe:
Digital Image: My Besties Image4972

Until next time.  Live, Love, Laugh,

Meet Me at The Scrappers Corner

Hello Fellow Crafters,

The Christmas holidays are near and we are all busy with preparing the house with Christmas love and music in the hopes of capturing precious memories and quality time with the ones we love.  This is also a tough time of year for people feeling lonely missing their loved ones no longer here or those that just don't have anyone to be with. I hope our Thanksgiving holiday sentiments of gracious times spreads throughout the coming days.

Today I am sharing some sweet memories on a Scrapbook page with a Photo of my Grand Daughter. I added a My Besties/Summer Swing digital image I colored with Spectrum Noir and hair with Derwent pencils. I thought this image was perfect as my Grand Daughter is laying on her tummy swinging cheerfully smiling.

What inspired me to get into putting my scrapbook layouts together is the December Monthly Challenge over at ''Meet at the Scrappers Corner'.  THEME: Scrapbook layout+Photo+My Besties image.
I have had this particular Anna Griffin album for a few years when it went on sale and now I am finally going to start filling it. So I will be sharing  several scrapbook layouts throughout the coming days and/or months. I love all of Anna Griffin products. She inspired me to add more is more with her beautiful 3D flowers. stickers.
So here you go my sweet memory of the this particular day me and my Grand Daughter had while were at the park.
I would like to enter this paper project into the following challenge:
Scrapbook Stamp Society #56 - anything goes

Bells, Baubles and Beads on A Cone

3D digital Image-Winter Wonderland skater/ My Besties - Designed by Sherri Ann Baldy

Hello Fellow Crafters,
Today I have the fun of sharing with you this adorable  Shabby Chic Decorative Laced-up Cone hanger. First I must share and say I got the idea from a talented, fabulous and gracious crafter Bibiana who shares her lovely how-to crafts on her Blog-Stamping with Bibiana. She had created a Victorian style cone.  What is so fabulous about gracious Crafters that share their How-to's is you can tweak to your creative touch. Bibiana does give you the instructions I am adding a few suggestions on mine for those that want a little more detailed measurements to go by. It was a fun paper project not very hard.

I chose to make this Shabby Chic Decorative Laced-up Cone to showcase this precious 3 D Decoupage -My Besties/Winter WonderLand Skater  which is pre-colored digital image I had won on one of my entries into My Besties 3D Decoupage Challenge.  And guess what...I am going to enter this one too...since they inspired and tickled me to create something using Bells, Baubles and Beads. I invite you to go visit their Challenge Blog their Design Team creations are always amazing.

 These would be great for birthday party cones or just for a special someone.

Items Needed to make your own Decorative Cone:
- two 6x6 cardstock Design Papers
- ruler, scissors, hole punch, tape, glue
- ribbon or string or rope or tulle, or hemp( whatever you choose to use as handle)
- Embellishments of your choice

My Card Recipe:
3D Decoupage Image: My Besties/Winter Wonderland Skater
Design Paper: Bassill
Embellishments- Hobby Lobby/Feather, baubles, beads, bells, pearl spray
Ribbons and Lace my stash
Paper Ruffle-Petaloo
Aleene's Tacky Glue, Clear tape

Here are some pictures of how I started. Forgive me for not taking pictures of where I made markings to make sure I punched holes for proper spacing.







-Choose a 6x6 Design Paper with the side you want showing outside if you happen to use double-side DP like I did
-Choose 1 corner/2sides of it glue down your decorative edge
-Place/Tape handle on the Top side of the decorative edge
-Place/Tape decorative item you want to hang on bottom of Cone.











- Add a  1 1/2 inch strip of cardstock to each side where you are going to punch hole to lace your ribbon/string on for strength
-Choose your Design Paper to show from the inside to glue down.

The inside measurement of the new square to be covered is now 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
- Measure 1/2 inch in to start punching holes
- Punch holes in 1 inch increments

This 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 Square will cover the handle strings and bottom decoration and will make your Cone sturdy.

Get you a clap/big clip ready...to clip top ends together for lacing.






Once you have smoothed down and let all the adhesives dry start to mold your Cone with your hands to make the ends curve into each other. You can't see the holes I punch very easily with my design paper but they are their. I embroider so to make it easier for me I used 2 needles to thread my ribbon downward.

Here is my completed Shabby Chic Decorative Cone.


I hope I tickled you into giving this a try. I am once again so grateful for Bibiana tickling my creativity.
Here is another picture where I placed this precious paper project on my tree...here she is. As you can see the baubles and feathered decorative piece on my Cone are used throughout my Christmas tree decorated with love.
I would like to enter this paper project into the following Challenges:
My Besties 3D #21 - Bells, Baubles and Beads
My Besties Dutch - Anything Goes Winter(Used My Besties/Winter Wonderland Skater)
Scrapbook Blessings #34 - Anything Goes
