CONGRATS Ann!  I'll credit your account this morning.  If you all didn't get a chance to check out her post and photos, be sure to do so!  It's definitely worth the click!

Well, I'm still a work in progress with my project, but I do have a little snippet for you.  I know, I know. . .I'm not being nice again.  Oh well, you'll get over it. . .SOON!  Hmmmmm.  I wonder.

So, get busy and start snapping those photos.  We can't wait to see.  You'll have until Feb. 6th to link up your blog or photos to be entered in the random drawing for the FREE image.

I tell you what.  I say it right often, but I seriously have NO IDEA where this week went.  Honestly.  It just totally slipped away from me.  I'm having a good week though and I hope you are as well.  It's been pretty cold here in Virginia and they say perhaps some snow tomorrow.  I hope not.  Unless it doesn't stick.  I don't mind watching it fall though. .. .that part is really beautiful.

Well, enough about that.  Let's get to the fun part.  I want to once again thank everyone who participated this past week. All wonderful and fun posts and photos.
Now for the winner.  The winner of the FREE image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop is. . .
Pillan. . . again!
Girl. . . .you're on a roll!  That's two weeks in a row!!!  Congratulations!  I'll get that FREE image credited to your account this morning.  Thanks for playing again.  Your Magnolia card was super sweet!!!

What am I working on you ask?  Well, I'm working on a little something, but I can't tell you just yet.  Haven't made a final decision, but this is a little snippet of my 'thoughts.'  :)  
I haven't had a chance to actually work on anything new, except for my sketching, so I apologize for the non-stimulating photo.  But I bet it has you guessing.  LOL

Now it's your turn.  What do you have up your sleeve this week?  We can't wait to see.  You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, January 30th to link up your post or photos to be entered in the random FREE image giveaway from Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.
Well. . .don't just stand there. ..

This week has totally flown by for me.  I am so glad that the weekend is upon us.  I usually work over the weekend some, but it's a little more relaxing, so I'm really looking forward to it.  They are calling for snow her in Richmond, Virginia this evening.  Not looking forward to that, but they are only calling for about 2-3 inches, so that isn't too bad.  We'll see.  What are your plans for the weekend?

Thanks to everyone who played along in the SMThursday fun last week.  A great bunch of posts and photos.  I always enjoy seeing what you all are doing, whether it's a crafting project, cards or just day to day activities.  It's nice to get a sneak peek into what everyone is doing.  Thanks for sharing.

So, who was the winner of the FREE image to the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop this week?  That was. . .

Congratulations!  Thanks for sharing your adorable card with us.  Just drop me an email and I'll get that credit to your account.  Hope to see you play along again next week.

And what I have been doing you ask?  Well, if you've been following me over on the Illustrated by Cheryl, art journaling blog, you have a pretty good idea.  But I don't share everything. :)  I have been tweaking this image from my On a roll. . . entry, back on January 9th.

It's changed quite a bit and I eventually felt happy with the final illustration.  Sally, Bella and the sweet little bird will be in the shop, sometime today with the title:
My Favorite Kind of Weather.
So, whatcha think?  Is she a keeper?

Now that I've shown you mine, you need to show us what you're working on this week.  Remember, it doesn't have to be anything crafty, it can be whatever you have going on this week.  We REALLY do want to see.  So grab those cameras. . .it's time for

Are you sleepy?

** If you're looking for the SMThursday fun, scroll down one post of click here. **

Well, you might be, and maybe even a little under the weather once you see the newest stamps that I created for Kraftin' Kimmie this month.  I think in all the time that I have been working with Kimmie, these have to be my favorites.  Especially the Sweet Dream set.  And then Kimmies Design Team comes along and makes them look even MORE adorable!

I always like to showcase on the DT's cards and this time is no different.  This beautiful and oh so stunning card was created by Jenny Peterson, who just happens to be on the amazing Kraftin' Kimmie Design team.  It certainly is a jaw dropper, isn't it.  I was FLOORED by it.  Perfect from top to bottom!!!

And of course, since I don't make cards, and oh how I wish I did, I am sharing the sweet little illustration that I colored up as an example of Lulu and her adorable little Teddy Bear sleeping on the moon.  I sure hope she doesn't roll off.  :)

Here is a preview of both sets.  Sweet Dreams and Love is the Best Medicine.  All with your favorite characters, Lexi, Lulu and Lucas.   

So pop on over and check them out. And be sure to leave the ladies some loving!  You might even win one of these fun and whimsical sets!
Until next time!

It's Thursday already?  Why didn't someone warn me that the week was just going to fly by?  Gee, thanks!  Way to look out for me.  I see how you are.  Who's week was it to keep me straight?
Yes, I am full of myself today.  So what else is new?
I'm just really feeling happy today.  Ever have one of those?  Well, you should join me.  And no, I haven't been drinking!  It's only 6 AM!

This is a fairly long post, so lets get right to it.  I want to say thank you to everyone who played along this past week. It was a fun ride.  And who was the lucky winner of the FREE image from the shop?  Well that was. . . . .
CONGRATULATIONS girl!  That's two weeks in a row.  Boy, you'd better be picking up a lottery ticket this weekend!!!!!!
Did you all have a chance to see her card?  It is scrumptious!  It's definitely worth the click!
I'll get your account credited this morning.  Have fun shopping. . . .you lucky thing you!

Now, I have two things to share with you.  No, actually three.
First up, is one of the newest images that I did for Kraftin' Kimmie!  This is sweet little Lulu sleeping on the moon with her teddy bear.  It must have been a really rough day for them.  There is a sweet little boy image as well.  So be sure  to check them out and leave the DT some love as you will be entered to win one of the fabulous NEW Kraftin' Kimmie stamp sets.

Next up, is the newest image that will soon be added to the shop.  Yep.. . . . possibly even today. So Judy, now you don't have to ask or get bossy!  LOL  If you're good, perhaps even this morning sometime, but I need to finish my coffee and take Bella for a walk.  Then I need to take a shower, do some laundry, clean the house and go grocery shopping.  Just kidding!  I wouldn't do that to you. 
Isn't Bella sweet though.  She doesn't seem to really be interested in looking at the clouds like Sally is.  Or is Sally day dreaming?  I know.  I know. . . .she's thinking about the day she meets Prince Charming.  Yep, that's it.  Who knows!  She may even be thinking about how good that triple layer chocolate cake was that she had last night.  Use your own imagination!

**Update:  She is now in the shop.**

And finally.  Most of you who follow me and are on the PCP group know that I recently starting daily sketching in an art journal and am now blogging daily about it.  This little tidbit of information is for those who don't know about it.  I hope you'll pop over and join in the discussion . . .and add your creative  ideas and suggestions in the comments section.
This is the entry for yesterday. . .but if you want to see the newest one, I guess you'll have to pop on over and have a look see.  :)

That's a WHOLE lot to take in. Isn't it!  Well, I've said my piece. . . .now let's see and hear from you.  You'll have until 5 PM EST to link up your photo or blog to be entered in the drawing for the FREE image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.
What are you waiting for?!?!?!?  Get busy!

Well, that's the first thing on the agenda. . . .right?  Hard to believe that Christmas is over and we are into a new year.  Haven't been in the stores lately, but I would almost bet you that the Valentines candy is out and the swim suits are hanging in place of the sweaters and winter coats.  Am I right?  I'd venture to guess that I am.  BRRRR.  No bathing suit for me just yet.  I just want to make it through the winter without freezing my toes off.  UGH!  Come on spring.  And yes, I'll be saying that until it arrives!

I'm hoping that each of you had a blessed and wonderful Christmas and a Fabulous New Years Eve/Day!  I'm certainly ready for what 2013 will be bringing my way.  I can't wait!  So glad that you all had two weeks to play around and share your photos.  ALL of them were fabulous.  Thanks for taking the time to play along!

Since we this was a two week SMT challenge the winner will receive TWO FREE images from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.  And who was that lucky winner  this week?  That was none other than. . .
Did you all have a chance to check out the post and read about her GORGEOUS CARD! Carolyn, I'll get your account credited this morning.  Have fun shopping.

Now, as most of you know, back in October, I added a new member to my family.  A sweet and very sassy and mischievous cat, Bandit!  He is the sweetest thing. . . .and he certainly loves Bella, but boy, does he give her 'what-fore'!  Jumping on her head and then running away.  He's a card and I laugh just about EVERY day at something that they do.  They are partners in crime too. . .getting into all kinds of trouble.
This is the day that I brought him home.  Super cute!  Who wouldn't fall in love with that face!!!

And here are Bella and Bandit tearing up my Rubbermaid box that I was going to take out to the recycling bin.  Didn't take it out quite soon enough.  Came out of the office and found Bella chewing off pieces of the cardboard and Bandit, playing with them.  Yep . . . .they had a little tag team action going on that day!
So . . . .since I have a Bella character, I thought, why not a Bandit character as well.  I've been thinking about this one for a long time, and he isn't quite completed yet, but here is one idea that I'm working on.  Whatcha think?  Look for him in the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop. . . .as SOON as I figure him out.  :)

SO, what are you doing this week?  Perhaps taking down the Christmas decorations?  Practicing your new years resolution?  Cleaning?  Organizing?  (Just throwing some ideas out there.  LOL)
It doesn't matter.  We just want to see!  So give us a 'look see'!  You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, January 9th to get your photo or blog linked up to be entered in the random drawing for the FREE image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop!
  We can't wait to see. . . . 
AND. . . 
HAPPY 1st week of 2013!
