Show Me #97

Does anyone know what time it is?  You know you know. . . .It's SHOW ME THURSDAY!!!!!!  YIPPEEEEE!  I love this post.  Probably my ALL TIME favorite day of the week.  Except for Friday! LOL  I know you all enjoy it too, or at least I hope so!
I've been busy, busy, busy taking care of stuff that REALLY needs to be done and enjoying my new found adventure.

Thanks to everyone who played along and shared their posts and photos last week.  You can tell by the photos that you all have been having fun creating and I see that fall that is also definitely in the air!  Thank goodness for that!

Cynthia
Girl, you are on a roll.  You won the illustration yesterday too!  Man!  You should definitely play the lottery this week. . . and if you win, you have to share with me, since I gave you the suggestion.  :)
I'll get that FREE image credited to your account this morning.
CONGRATULATIONS!

So, what do I have to show you this week?  Well, not much of anything. . .and least not anything new in the sketch front.  This week and next are super busy for me, so it has been difficult to find time to do any serious sketching, so I just keep compiling a list of ideas.  ;)  That's better than nothing, right?!
But I have been working on a little blog that was born from many, many emails commenting on my new found love of REAL coloring.  I REALLY do appreciate that you admire my coloring.  I am humbled by that!  Thanks. . . . 
So. . . .that is what I want to share with you this week.  I was going to share photos of my apartment, but didn't have time to get the photos. . . so I guess you will have to take what you can get.
So, pop on over and let me know what you think. . . .or leave a comment here.  Either way, I'd love to hear from ya.

So. . . .what are you doing this week!?!?!?!?  I, or should I say. . .we want to see!
You'll have until next Wednesday, 5 PM EST, October 31st. to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random FREE image give away from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop! What are you waiting for!
BOO. . ..did I scare ya.  
See ya next week!

Kraftin Kimmie winner!

Well . . . . .it was quite a ride on the Kraftin Kimmie hop. . . .and there were some gorgeous cards from the Design Team.  I still need to pop around and comment on them.  I have been sooooo busy lately that I've let life bet in the way.  Gotta stop letting that happen.

Enough.  Right!  Thanks to everyone who took the time to join in the fun and leave some love for me as well as the DT.  You know we appreciate all of your sweet and lovely comments!  Thanks bunches!

There were 29 wonderful comments left on my blog and I chose the winner by using the TRGenerator. So, who was the winner of the colored illustration?
That was none other than Lucky #29, Cynthia!  Sometimes it does pay to be last, doesn't it!
Congratulations Cynthia!  I think I have your address correct from your SC account, but just drop me an email to confirm that I do have the right address.  
Thank you all again for being so generous.  
Have a great Wednesday. . ..and we'll see you next time!

Show Me #96

Well, I certainly hope that you are having a fabulous week!  I spent last weekend with my family and had such a great time.  Many of them had colds and 'knock on wood', I'm hoping that I don't get that as I still haven't completely gotten rid of what I've had.
By the looks of the entries last week, you all have been busy, busy, busy. . . .having fun creating fabulous fall projects and getting ready for the upcoming Christmas holiday as well.  I loved ALL the posts and photos.  They were wonderful!  Thanks to everyone for taking the time to play along.  I look forward to it each week!

So . .. .who was the lucky winner of the FREE digi from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop last week?  That was the one and only.. . .
TRACY!
Did you all see her wonderful photos of these cuties that her husband took!  They were ALL adorable! But this one was probably one of my favorites!  Tracy.  Congratulations. . . and tell your hubby that he is one awesome photographer!  I'll get your FREE image credited to your account this morning. Thanks for playing along!

This is a very different post for me as I'm going to share two sets of photos with you.  The first is a sneak peek of a brand new stamp that I did for Kraftin' Kimmie.  I love this little guy!  I colored him up, not long after I drew him for Kimmie, but I had to 'sit' on him, because she wasn't releasing them until this weekend.  And of course, I have more of these sweeties up my sleeve too, but you'll just have to wait each month to see them.  So . . .whatcha think?  You can check them all out HERE!


And then there is one other set of photos I wanted to share with you.  As many of you may have noticed, I've been a little lazy lately about posting, coloring and making comments on your blogs.  Well here is the reason why.  I've MOVED!
My husband and I recently separated.  Actually, I moved a month ago yesterday.  Now, before you start commenting and saying your sorry, etc., not that I don't appreciate that, I am doing fine and am very happy!  Without going into detail, believe me, it is for the best and I'm looking forward to a new adventure.  And I have a feeling, it's going to be a fun one.  Yes, I have my good and bad days, like anyone would, but it's mainly from stupid stuff that really isn't important that I let get to me, which then puts me in a 'funk'.  Been there, done that, even before all of this happened, so I tell myself to just get OVER it and keep moving.
Now. . . .with all that said, I wanted to share with you a few photos of my apartment, the first day that I moved in.  Trust me. . .it didn't stay looking like this for long and since I'm not a 'stuff' person, it is very bare in all of the rooms, except for my office. . . and that's the way I like it.
Now, w/o going into detail about each photo, I will just say this.  The first photo is the apartment empty.  This is the door to my office.  It is actually a HUGE two BR apartment, but this is the only photo that I had where it was empty.  The rest are self explanatory, except for the one with Bella on the bed.  She was EXHAUSTED by the end of the first day. . .but we kept pushing forward.  And now we are all settled in, with most everything the way I want it.  Still need a couple of more things to make it feel like home, but I'm not a 'must have it now' person, so when I find those items, they will be added.
I'll share more photos over the next couple of weeks, of what it looks like now, as well as pictures of some of the fabulous furniture that I purchased. . . .

Well, I don't know about you. . .but I'm tired from typing all of that.  So let's see what you're working on.
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, October, 24th to link up your photo or blog to be entered in the random, FREE image giveaway.  As you can see, by my post, it doesn't have to be crafty. . .it can be ANYTHING!  So get busy!
Happy hunting!

Show Me #95

Hip, hip hooray, it's time for another SHOW ME THURSDAY!  It's been a busy week here and I'm ready for the weekend.  The fall weather has finally set in and it so enjoyable having my coffee each morning.  Love, love, love the fall temps and I can't wait to see the leaves start changing.  Have they begun to change where you are? Ours probably won't be changing for another couple of weeks and I'm sure a nice long drive in the country will be in order once they do.

What fabulous SMT posts and photos you all shared with us last week.  Thanks to everyone who played along. They were all great.  And who was the winner of the FREE digi from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop? That was . . .
Miss Debbie
Did you all get a chance to check out her post and photos.  Make sure you check it out.  It's worth the click.
Debbie, just drop me an email and I'll get that free image credited to your account.  Thanks for playing along. . . .and I hope you'll share another amazing post this week.

Well. . . .my creative mojo has been MIA a little and I've had a difficult time getting motivated to sketch much. . . .but this little fun sketch is something that I was working on over this past week.  I haven't quite figured out what I want to do to make her feel 'finished', but she's getting there.  Any thoughts or suggestions?  I'd LOVE to hear them!

So, get busy, and get out those cameras and start posting.  We can't wait to see what you're working on this week.  Remember, it doesn't have to be craft related. . ..it can be ANYTHING!
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, October 17th to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random drawing for the free image.  
So. . . .what are you waiting for!?!?!?!  
Have a FABULOUS WEEK!

Show Me #94

Fall weather is on it's way. . . or at least that's what I keep hearing.  I certainly haven't seen much of it, that's for sure, because it's been warm and humid here this week in Virginia.  I'm hoping that the forecast holds true for this weekend for the temps to be much cooler and more fall like.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

Thanks to everyone who played along last week.  You all certainly have been busy, that's for sure.  Such fabulous posts. . . .I felt a little tired and lazy after reading some of them. You all are work horses! Well, who was the lucky winner this past week?  That was none other than.. .
Terri!
Congratulations Terri!!!  Did you all see her amazing recipe cards?  They are wonderful!!!!!
Terri, I'll credit your account this morning for the FREE image to the shop. 

And as for me?  Well, I did get two new images created for the shop, including the newest one, What's Up Turkey?  But that's about as far as I got.  So, you'll have to be satisfied with the plain 'ole boring picture for this week.  Nope, my life as an artist is not always glamorous.  LMBO!
I do have a few things that I am sketching on, but with the small bit of a headache that started yesterday afternoon, I wasn't able to get enough done for you to see. . .so instead, I quickly snapped this photo to show you what I had started working on yesterday when I still felt like working.  :)  It's The Loves Healing Hands, boy image that I'm going to be coloring up for my Etsy Shop.  As you can see, I didn't get very far.  

So, you'll have to be the exciting ones again this week and share your lovely goings on.  What do you have to wow us with this week?  Can't wait to see.
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, October 10th. to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random drawing for the FREE image to the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.  So get snapping. . . .
We're waiting!
Have a great week. . .and HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!
