Sweet Friend

It's Friday and that means a new challenge at Digitally Sweet Challenges.


Is there any image that could be more appropriate for me, considering that I'm spending most of my days in my garden.  And my garden is well watered!  We keep trying to work between the showers.  But that's a blessing; I don't have to water and everything is growing by leaps and bounds!  

But I digress, you're here to see my card.  The image is from Sparkle N Sprinkle and is called 'A Watered Garden' by Michelle Perkett.  I've colored it with Prismacolor pencils and then  added white and pink transparent glitter.  Love all the glitter!

And now I will share a few pics from my garden.  I've finally primed my fence, now I just need to choose a color.  One friend suggested periwinkle blue, another, purple, or how about yellow or maybe fuchsia?  I'm horrible at making decisions!  (that branch in the foreground is my curly willow)

love the fringe tree


peonies are just starting to bloom, the deep pink was a gift from a sweet friend
 So that's it for me today.  Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Sweet Memories

It's time for a new challenge at Digitally Sweet Challenges and our 

theme is a color challenge
Yellow, Blue, White


This photo brings back so many memories!  Christy was our first foster baby.  We received her at 3 days old and were blessed to have her for 2 years.

The sweet sunbonnet girl image is Fancy SB Beach from Bugaboo.  She is digitally colored using the gradient tool.  

I hope you will find some time to share your creative projects with us.
Thanks for visiting and wishing you a blessed day!

Happy Mother's Day

It's Friday and time for another new challenge at Digitally Sweet Challenges.


Both of these lovely images are from Lunagirl Images.  The rest of the LO are bits and pieces from freebies that I've collected over the years.  

Are you enjoying some beautiful spring weather in your corner of the world?  I have so many outside projects going that I barely have any time on the computer.

Sweet Little Angel

It's Friday which brings a new challenge at Digitally Sweet Challenges.

anything with wings


I used 'Alexis Cherished Wings'.  Can you tell I love sweet little girls colored in pretty pastel colors?  I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and then finished the LO in Photoshop Elements. 

So now it's your turn to show us your creativity.  

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
