Sweet and Pink
Hello! I hope that you are starting your week with a bang!!
Mondays always seem so hum drum, don't they? 
Let's make it the best day of the week!!
Grab a cup of joe and lets get our craft on, shall we?
Today I wanted to share with you a very sweet tear bear that I made.
I've missed doing what I love tremendously. Being on a paper piecing design team didn't leave much time to do my own thing. So, now that I've resigned I can get my groove back on. LOL.
I made this sweet little girl from extra thick, acid/lignin free mulberry paper. She is so soft, pink and cute!  She is holding a cardstock panda made from a Lshd file. Don't you just love the little gingham bows she is wearing? I think they are so darling.
To complete her I chalked and added my penmanship to her....my doodle.

Here is a close up of her pretty lil' face.


Pretty in pink! What would you do with her if you had her?
She is for sale on ebay and can be found HERE.

I'll share one more pic of her and then I will close. Check out the little heart...isn't it darling?

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping in to see me today.
I always appreciate visitors.

Blessings.

Day 2 of the Bouncity Bounce Bloggity Hop

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the HOP!
I hope you are enjoying visiting each den. Everyone has done a fantastic job on this Bouncity, Bounce Bloggity Hop.

Let's give a big kitty "MEOW" to our Alpha Elsa for organizing this event for us. She is a super sweet den mother.

Make sure you continue to hop a long with the rest us. I am giving away a set of Easter paper piecing of a boy and girl. Girl is holding an Easter basket and little boy is holding a bunny. I'll try to post a pic later, once my camera recharges.

Leave a comment here and join my blog to be eligible to win.

I made an Easter bunny tear bear from cardstock and extra thick mulberry paper. I think she turned out adorable.
 Next I wanted to share my little cardstock bears that were made from patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs where I am a Design Team member.
I actually colored them with my pro markers and then outlined them in black. Adding cardstock stickers just makes them pop all the more!

Last and probably one of my faves are these little spring blue birds. Pattern is from TBD.
I absolutely love them and I hope that you do to!
 Tweet, Tweet

Thanks everyone for visiting my den. I appreciate the opportunity to share my Katiness...I mean my craftiness with you.
Here is the rest of the line up:

Blessings and Happy EASTER!
He is Risen....He is Risen Indeed!!

Here is my first project for the day. 
I made this as a DT project for Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. With having the blog hop in mind for Easter I created this cute Easter frame. You can buy these cute frames at Michael's for $1. 
Pattern that I used is Decorating Cookies from LSHD. I added some cute Easter paper, ribbon and those sweet bees to finish it up.

Isn't this just the milk in the bowl? 
My little boy when he was 2 yrs old. We had just gotten him and this was his first Easter with us. Look how small and cute he was. Can't believe he is almost 7 now!

Here's a close up:
