Molly Friends:


Good morning all!  As I said last week, I took the week off. And by off, I didn't mean some tropical beach vacation.  Instead I spent time doing things around the house: painting walls, renovating, and going to work.  Pretty much everything the same minus crafting.

But I am back :)

I purchased another 30+ Prismacolor pencils - they were on sale for 83 cents each.  I now pretty much have the complete set and am SO excited to use them.  Prismacolor, you have changed my life!  My poor Copic markers have now been collecting dust since January, I am almost considering selling them.  Never thought that would happen!

(See?  Told you I was back...  with my snoozeville banter...)

StampFairy is sponsoring Love to Create's Friendship challenge.

I haven't done a blonde Molly for a while, so I sharpened up my Prismacolors and made her a fair-haired cutie:
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, My Mind's Eye papers, Bazzill and Recollections cardstock,  Prismacolor Pencils (email me for complete list), Circle Nesties, Martha Stewart bakers twine, Dress It Up buttons.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made Miss Molly for the following challenges:   Sentimental Sundays - frame it w sentiment, The Poodles Parlour - circles, Delightful Challenge - stitching, Simon Says - May flowers, Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch 149:



It was also StampFairy's New Release on Friday:  meet Barry Fishing -




Thanks for the visit!  Have a wonderful Monday.

Hi Deanne, I haven't even thought about using Prismacolor pencils. It sure would be alot less expensive. I need to pull mine out and give them a try. You certainly do beautiful work with them. You have beautifully blended your colors on this image. It is gorgeous. I love your cute spring papers and adorable image. It is so nice to have you join us.
Hugs, Nancy SSW

Wow Prismacolor pencils is the trick, huh... I've nevered tried using colored pencils on my images yet.. But yours is just so pretty...love the color on this cute image.... And what a bargain at .83 cents each, I'm sure here on Hawaii it must be an arm & a leg for one pencil, LOL! I will have to go and check if we even do have it on the Big Island....
TFS!

Annette said...

I'm addicted to my copics, and have tried pencils (a uk version of the prismas) but have not got on so well with them. Certain colours blend ok for me, but I struggle with others, which limits my range!!! LOL
Your creations are consistently gorgeous though. I've been trying my stitching again this week, and always think of how much I love stitching on your cards whenever I sit at the sewing machine! You're my inspiration, although I think I have a lot of practice to go before I get as good as you.
Thanks for sharing the sweet card.
It's adorable as always.

Oh heavens Deanne, did you really say you're done with your Copics!!!!! Your use of the pencils is amazing - wish I could achieve this when i use them :) It's so good to see you back here at SSW. You have such a flair with the bright fun colors - always creating such cheerful cards and this is no exception. Really great job and your stitching looks terrific! Hugs to you and thank for playing along with us.
