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 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.

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
Anna Griffin - lace die, Carmen lace die and Embossing edge
Sentiments: Stampabilites
Coloring: Spectrum Noir
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Besties International #1 - Faux Sewing
Crafting From The Heart #41 - Anything Goes
Crazy Catz Challenge #260 - Anything Goes

Hope I encouraged you to get out your comfort zone and give coloring a try. I know I still have a lot to learn.

Until next time.  Live, Love, Laugh,
