Heather Valentin from Lacy Sunshine has created some amazing new images, HobGobbis!  They are so much fun to color and design with.  This one is Tiny Eveninpuff HobGobbi.

I've colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  For the green stripe on the paper I used some red line tape and then covered it with green glitter.  The image is on pop dots and the tag is from Heartfelt Creations.

Little Miss Muffet

Hello friends!  We have another fun new challenge for you at Digitally Sweet Challenges.

Inspired by a Favorite Book


Our children used to love Mother Goose rhymes.  When I saw 'Miss Muffet' I knew she would be perfect for this weeks challenge.  I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and then scanned her back into Photoshop Elements.  I then used the gradient tool to create the background.

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

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Heartfelt Creations June Alumni DT Hop

Hello, sweet friends!  Once again it's time for our Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop!   

The winner of this hop will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations, you just need to email Emma Lou with "Winner of June Alumni Hop" in the subject line.  The hop will close on Friday June 27th at midnight.

 Today I'm sharing my July calendar page.  Originally, I was planning to do a patriotic theme but my thoughts kept going in a different direction and so I decided to follow my heart.  This page is dedicated to our daughter, Wanita.  Dec. 26, 1963 - July 2, 2013.

Each page has a pocket; this is the pull on the tag.  I will show all of the tags next time.

There's an amusing little story connected to  this picture.  When I realized my printer was out of ink I put several small pics on a 4x6 in Photoshop and took it to WalMart to print.  The saleslady took one look at this and said "This looks like a professional picture and I can't sell it to you."  I was completely shocked!  I tried to tell her that I took the picture, but she wasn't getting the picture, LOL!  But when I know 100% that I am right, I stand my ground!  And in the end, I got my picture.  Whew, she had me going for a minute!  (Maybe I should have been flattered that she thought it was a professional photo but I was a bit too upset to think about it.)

Take It Easy

Hello friends!  It's Friday and time for a new challenge at Digitally Sweet Challenges.



This cute image from Lacy Sunshine is 'Eleanor, Pickles n Tilly'.  With all the hectic scrambling to get our gardening done in between the rain, I think I was reminding myself to slow down and enjoy the summer.  
I hope you will hop on over to 'Digitally Sweet' and see all the awesome inspiration from the amazing design team and join us with your vacation projects!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

All For The Girls

Happy Friday everyone!  There's a new challenge for you at Digitally Sweet Challenges.

All For The Girls


We were given several beautiful images to choose from but the choice is always made easier when there is a little pink involved, LOL!  

And the gardening saga continues

I am so excited to have my own strawberries!  I know that we're not supposed to let them set fruit the first year but I just had to have a few to taste.

Doing a little companion planting, hot peppers with cabbage.  All that compost is producing some amazing plants!

And, of course, I just had to bring in some of those gorgeous peonies!  I work with a simple point and shoot camera and it is so color challenged!  Those irises are an amazing deep purple but the camera always sees purple as blue.

Hope you enjoyed a little stroll through my garden and that you will find a few moments to share your creative projects with us at Digitally Sweet Challenges.

Wishing you a blessed day!
