Every day is Special! ❤️

Wow!  It's another special day here at Mistyblues Creations. ❤️. My youngest got engaged on her birthday.  Her and her boyfriend have been together for 10 years and it was a surprise to us all....even my daughter.  So with them in mind, my DT inspiration this week for Digi Choosday, I chose another designer sheet from the Winnie Fruit Punch CD collection.


Just look at all the lovely printable elements there are?  You will get lost in all the wonderful images!

There are just so many to choose from...this week I went with For You.

When there is so much going on in your life and you need a card for an occasion that is coming up or something unexpected......this is the way to go.  Go into the CD and print out a designer sheet, cut out and craft away.  What a beautiful make in a short amount of time. 
 I folded up the wings on the butterflies and the petals on the flowers.
Used dimension dots to elevate the presents, used the designer sheet background and added a heart bit of bling.  And here she is ready for an envelope!


❤️ Don' forget....all blog comments will be entered into a random drawing for a Digi from this fabulous collection. . ❤️  Winner will receive a Digi from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection!

Winner will be announced on July 8th.


What a fabulous collection...would you like to explore the store?  There are many collections to choose from and just for you today you can grab the discount code here.

Sunshine in the Garden

There is nothing better than hanging your laundry out on a clothes line.  Don't get me wrong, I do love my dryer but the smell of laundry that comes in off the clothesline brings back memories of my childhood.  
This week for Julia Spiri Challenge Blog Anything Goes with a Twist....Garden, add a tree, flowers, etc.  For my DT entry I used Nursery art printable Girl hanging out the washing.  I set her clothes line out in the yard behind a fence and under a lovely flowering tree.

Taking a peak over the fence you can see that she is on a platform with a bit of grass inside and a cute puppy and cat are sitting there watching her hang the laundry.

Image was colored with copics.

Birds of a Feather....Flock Together!

There is nothing more beautiful than watching a bird soar thru the air.  Catching a draft and soaring, floating, drifting.  Lacy Sunshine has a fabulous collection of Tangled Gems Bird Collection now in the store.  I must admit this is the first time I colored a zentangle and I must say it was so much fun creating with my own colors. ❤️. I chose Flower Owl and found it to be so much fun.



She/he was colored with SN markers.  I got so carried away in coloring that I did not take WIP pictures.  I also did not keep track of the colors that I used because there were only about 20 markers left that I didn't use out of a complete set!
  I have to admit that if you want to learn different coloring techniques you should try one of Lacy Sunshines coloring classes.  The choices are amazing and you learn techniques that will amaze you.  You can find her classes here.

Thanks for. I siting today!  Know that I do read all comments.

Hugs, Jane ❤️

Do You Know I Love Vultures!

Haha....you know now! ❤️. I am a Long Island, New York girl.  In 2007, I moved to PA. To my husbands family farm.  I didn't work, so one day when I was watching out the window, I saw these amazingly large birds sunbathing in the field.  Goodness they were huge....their wingspread was at least 6 feet!  No lie.  They were beautiful.  That was the day I fell in love.  
Well yesterday Heather Valentin from Lacy Sunshine sent me this beautiful vulture to color from her Tangled Gems collection For me to color up.


This beauty was colored with SN markers.  Too many to list.  Lol. Really, I used 45 different markers.
He is on a sparkle sheet background waiting to be framed!

Hugs, Jane
