Deconstructed Sketch - DS24

Hey Everyone!
I have another Deconstructed Sketch for you!  Yippee!!

I really enjoyed Jen's sketch this week!
I bet you will too!
I completely forgot to add the 3 little somethings up on the right hand corner of the card. Bummer...especially since I love candy dots and brads! Oh wee, at least I got to color and boy was it fun.  I colored Krista Smith's Image: Lolita, A Ragamuffin Waiting for the Fairies. You can find her and her friends HERE in Krista's Saturated Canary Digi Shop. I also used a sheet of My Mind's Eye designer paper out of their MME Happier 6x6 Paper Pad.

Colored Saturated Canary

Ok, so if you frequent my blog then you know my favorite part of Paper Crafting/Card Making is COLORING
I LOVE to color!

I have had these sensational images by the AMAZING artist, Krista Smith for a bit now, but have been struggling to find time to get the card constructed, so I decided...
why not show you the colored images pre card application!!?!?!?
I mean the colored image is the BEST part of the card anyway!

So here goes...

Please meet Pink PunketteBaby Jake,  Copica and Stroppy Beth (who to me...looks so so much like my Ella)
Not necessarily, the pose although she does pout, but the image itself, her hair, her eyes, her lips...that sweet lil' face...this little girl looks like my Ella!

Be sure to head over to Krista's Etsy Shop for more Saturated Canary Images!

Katie's Miracle - Another chance to HELP!!

I am writing this morning about and for Katie Renz you can meet her HERE on her Card blog and HERE on her Family Blog. 
Many of you may know that she has a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful little boys, that she is a super Mommy and way talented crafter...she also has Stage 4 Gastric Cancer.
Today, her husband wrote an update on her blog. This is so sad, my heart is broken and my thoughts have been consumed with her and her family. I am continuing to pray for Katie's Miracle!!!!! 
I hope will join me!

I was asked at the start of the year to design a stamp for Katie, I did and ended up getting an email from her telling me how much she loved it. Thank You Katie!  She said it really was her boys. She was so very very sweet and very appreciative!  Sooooo, I wanted to do a HUGE push of this image for her babies!!  I told her we were going to do this and that forever this stamp would be theirs!!  It just so happens that her 2 little guys have a birthday on the 19th of November and her big boy has one on the 1st of December. I would LOVE to bless them with a wonderful birthday and Christmas, so that Kevin and Katie do not have to think of worry about that!!


or if you'd like to donate what you wish:

_________All donations will receive a random image__________ 


If ANY of you would like to help spread the word on EVERY forum, blog, etc etc you can think of then the proceeds will go to The Renz Family...I and I know they would be so appreciate that we are helping to wrap her boys with our love and care.

I also wanted to ask  everyone to make a card with their image and mail it to Katie (her boys), so if you would like to...the address is below.  This what she wrote on one of my posts about a card I made:

Katie Renz said...Hi Lori,

I absolutely adore this image! It is one of my absolute favorites of all the donated images :) Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I also wanted to let you know that I've received numerous cards with this image and they have all been so cute!

so I know she would love it!!

P.O. Box 5913

Bellingham, Washington


THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for supporting and loving Katie and her Family!
