Hi all!
Here's my DT project for the current challenge at Inspiration Destination where it's always anything goes!
 Click on the images for a closer look!
Image is Coffee from Mo's Digital Pencil. It comes with its own sentiment but I had printer issues so I used this sentiment from a stamp set at Krafin' Kimmie Stamps called Angie. That awesome coffee bean paper I got from one of my most favorite places to shop, Paper Wishes years ago and I've been hoarding it! Ha! This card was bittersweet to make because I used up the last of the awesome paper! All other supplies are from my long-hoarded stash.
I'd like to share my card with these challenges:

First Father's Day

Here's a little something I whipped up for my future son-in-law for his first Father's Day. I have to admit... I am completely lost when it comes to stuff like this. You see... I was raised by a single mother and I was a single mother. More than anything in the world... I hope my daughter broke that cycle. Also, none of my brothers or sister's husbands were involved fathers. This is a new generation and I see that today's young families have the father changing diapers and feeding the baby. I am so grateful to see James take on a hands on attitude. I'm left feeling speechless when I see him doing this and I am so grateful for him loving my daughter. To hear my daughter speak of him... he's a good father and will be a good husband. I pray for the both of them every day.
This is A Chip off the old Block from The Paper Shelter. Papers are from Echo Park Rock-a-Bye Baby Boy. I've colored the image with Copic markers and Colore coloring pencils. Ribbon, star chipboard and rub-on sentiments are from my stash.
Now to write something meaningful that will express my deep gratitude and admiration for James. Easy, peasy, right? lol I purchased this stamp on Monday. Then on Wednesday, my daughter sent me this picture. I think this card was meant to happen! I mimicked the pillow case pattern! lol

Total Beach Babe

Hi, all! :D
This is my DT project for Challenge 348 Summer Time at My Time to Craft Challenge Blog. I think we're having the perfect weather to be running around like this! lol It's been hot and when it's not been hot, it's been hotter! Yuck! But I guess this heat is better then being knee deep in snow! lol
The image and both sentiments are from Beach Babe Zahra at Faery Ink. I've colored the image with Copic markers and accented the shades and her eyes with Glossy Accents. I used a daisy punch from Michael's Recollections line. The oval die cut is from Darice and I lined it with Stickles Glitter Glue in Crystal. Pattern paper is from Echo Park Summer Party

Thinking Hard

Hello, everybody! Long time since I've been able to pop onto my blog but here I am! In case I've not shared this with you all, I'm a new gammy! lol I'm overwhelmed with it all! *sigh* :)
This is the newsletter freebie from The East Wind for the month of June. Isn't it awesome? I had to print it out immediately and color it! I just love the look on her face. I was trying to find a funny question to use a sentiment but time got away from me. I was thinking of using something like "Why do they have to eat dinner every night?" or something like that. I saw the question on FB once and how it made me laugh! lol So, I really think I need a funny question like that here. What do you think?
This is Thinking Head from The East Wind and I've colored the image with Copic markers. This is such a powerful image, I kept it CAS. Her face says so much!

Down on the Farm

Hey all! This is my DT project for Challenge 347 at My Time to Craft. The theme for this challenge is Down on the Farm! I. Love. That! Here's yet another chicken card! lol :p If you've visited my blog before today, you should know I am a HUGE chicken fan! lol
I've had this stamp sitting in a basket collecting dust for I don't know how long, but at least since I'd say, maybe 2013!?! For shame, for shame! :p lol It was one of the last rubber stamps I purchased before I discovered digital stamps! :p 
This is Birdie & Eggnus from Art Impressions. Don't you just LOVE their stamps? Who doesn't, right? lol If I'd known I'd be such an addict... I'd have bought stock in the company years ago! lol :D
 I've colored the image with Copic markers and colored pencils. Before I could stop myself, I painted that white chicken like a hoochie mama with blue eye shadow and if I thought I could have gotten away with it I'd have added red lipstick!! lol :p Who am I kidding!?! The brown chicken is wearing purple eye shadow! Ha! 
Printed card stock is from The Paper Studio paper pad at Hobby Lobby called Farm Fresh. The straw pattern paper was a gift from a friend. I only received the one 12X12 page and I've been hoarding it! lol Buttons and twine are from my stash. The banner die is from La-La Land Crafts April 2016 monthly kit
