Anyhoo, lets see what Lisa has been doing with her Soft Pencil Images this week!!!! I have been a little under the weather this week, sinus drainage in the back of my throat has given me a sore throat (so much for my tonsils being taken out, haha), and a little bit of dizziness. I have been doing my best to rest as much as possible, but this is why I am so late today with my Soft Pencil post! Please forgive me everyone! We DT members got to work with an adorable new image called "Happy Sailors". I thought this image just screamed out Friendship! I colored the image mostly with my Stampin Up markers, but the sailors hair and rope were colored with a prismacolor marker. I remembered having some button embellishments of a nautical theme in my stash, so I added those to the card. I only wish they were all the same shade of blue, but I love them! I had so much fun with my Navy polka dot paper that I used on last week's image, I had to use it again! Hope you like it!
Next I have a Soft Pencil extra to share with you! I asked Elizabeth if she would make a Fall image of Michu jumping in a pile of leaves, and to my delight, she did, and offered it for free over on the Soft Pencil blog. I am also going to go load it up over on the Splitcoast Stampers website for Elizabeth, so you can pick it up there as well. Just go to the forums link at the top of the home page. If you have any trouble finding it at either location, feel free to click my email link requesting a copy.
Now, I colored the leaves with my Stampin Up Pastels (chalk), and Michu with a prismacolor marker. The strip of card stock is all I have left of that pattern (sniff, sniff) My fabulous friend and fellow DT member Kerry sent it to me. The card stock base is SU Crumb Cake, the rest is from DCWV. The ric rac is unknown from my stash. Of course the brown sticky gems were from Michael's. That sums it up for today!
Now, hop on over to the Soft Pencil blog and store, because they are having a big sale for the month of November, and then after the first of the year, Elizabeth will be opening a brand new store with lots of new images and other products for your crafting endeavors!!!!!!!! We DT members don't even know what all will be new! No fair!!!! I can't wait!!!!
Until next time.....Blessings, Lisa

It is hard to see, but I used some white opal Liquid pearls on the snowflakes in the sky, and the ground all around the little house and tree were painted with SU's white shimmer paint. Unfortunately, I am not sure if they still carry it or not, but I do know that they are selling some Smooch Spritz this year that is shimmery. The navy polka dot paper is some retired SU dsp, and the white organdy ribbon is from Michael's dollar bin a long time ago.... Just a small bit of info on how I tied that bow, I actually cut a slit at the fold of the card base so feed the ribbon through, making it so much easier to tie the ribbon! Now, hop on over to visit the other DT members and see what cute creations they have come up with for today. Then....go visit the Soft Pencil store, as Elizabeth is offering an awesome sale for the month of November!!!!
Until next time....................Blessings, Lisa

I colored the image with my Prismacolor Pencils except for the wings, they are covered in Stickles diamond. The blue behind the angels is a polar blue from DCWV, and I cut the image out with a Labels 6 di-cut from Spellbinder's. The pearls and lace are from Michale's, and the button is again from DCWV. I hope you like it, and I also hope you go visit the other DT blogs and the SND blog, all of which can be found as links over on my sidebar.
Until next time.............Blessings, Lisa

I had a small clipboard from the Target clearance section laying around waiting for the perfect alteration project. So, I went to work on it! I also brought my image up onto my freebie photo editing software called "Gimp", made two copies of it. This way I could keep the original in it's original form. I trimmed one copy to show only the calendar, and the other to show only the kitty image. Then I copy and pasted them both into separate Microsoft Word files, and changed their size to suit my needs, then printed them out onto some card stock. I cut each monthly calendar out, individually so that I could stack them on top of each other, and the year date to mat and place on the clipboard by itself. I covered the clipboard with some retired Stampin Up Designer paper, using my extra tacky tape, as the clipboard had a really slick surface to it. Next I covered the edges of the clipboard with some Purple Pigment ink that I had laying around. Pigment Ink takes forever to dry, I hardly ever use it for that reason. My daughter was laughing at me in fact because I had to wipe purple ink from my hands three times while I was working on this. All that was left was to add my elements to the clipboard. The Butterflies were cut out with my SU/Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies embosslit and retired Lovely Lilac Card stock. I added the Purple Satin Ribbon bow to the top with my foam pop dots, and voila, it is finished.
