Aurora Wings Challenge #65- Sprite Delight- Using "Coffee Sprite"

Image may contain: drawing and text

Hey Everyone!!! This years Sprite Delight Challenge project won't be as epic as last year... so sorry about that! LOL We have been so insanely busy!! I started working 4 days a week back in the fall, 2 of which are lunch shift (1130-230) and you wouldn't think those would totally be your whole day but they really are!! By the time I get the big one off to school, the little one fed and dressed, maybe a load of laundry done, its time to take the little to a Grandma for the afternoon. Go to work, pick the little back up, boogie back home to get the big one from the school bus and its 4pm already!! By the time I feed them, bath them and put them to bed its 8pm and I AM EXHAUSTED!!! I thought by now I would have adjusted and that my 3 days a week off would be able to be spent doing the crafty things but sadly no!! I keep thinking after this happens or that happens it will calm down.... I'm still waiting!!! LOL And now we are getting into planting both the fields and the garden and camping season followed by harvest and then the little one goes off to kindergarten!! Whew!! It feels like graduation is right around the corner!! LOL Anyone out there have any time saving tips to help this mama earn some more crafty time??? 
I did sneak some crafty time when hubby and I ran away to Canmore, AB about a month ago. I managed to color this image in 1 sitting!!!! 1 sitting ya'll!!! I don't remember the last time I was able to do that!! And neither do the 3 unfinished images sitting with my markers!! LOL
I turned "Coffee Sprite" into an adorable little bookmark. I've amassed a small collection now waiting for me to have time to do some more craft sales (BAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAH) or for the Christmas rush I guess. One way or the other these little bookmarks have been a great way for me to sneak moments of coloring in and not get rusty with my markers!! (Or have I?) 

My handy Cricut Explore made the back for me. My mom says I should add "and Baileys" to the bottom lol 

I'm really happy with how this little cutie turned out!!! It was such a pleasure to get to color!! Maybe next time I will do a pattern on the cup!! A little challenge for anyone out there... ey? Any takers??

Next month I have a big 3D project planned for you guys!! Its been so long since I had time to do anything big and fun like that!! We are done skating for the year and soccer doesn't start until May so maybe just maybe that extra couple hours a week in April will give me time!!

No automatic alt text available.
For me I used: Glitter, Die Cuts and Layers

I have been having so much fun working on bookmarks, I hope you don't mind seeing more bookmarks from me cuz they are just a fun new way to use my images!! I have something else coming for you in a couple months that's going to be soooo fun!! 

This month I played with Dragon Babies available on Etsy and AuroraWings.com
I really had so much fun coloring these up to represent me and the girls. I'll explain why in a few!! It was just a sweet little image to color and I have a feeling my youngest is going to steal with bookmark before I ever have a chance to sell it LOL

Here's the back:
I love the added touch of the soft gold glitter paper! I was just going to add some Wink of Stella to the dragon eggs for my glitter but I love how this turned out!!!

Now for a bonus! I used this image on my new business cards!! 
That's why I colored them in our colors. The teal is my favorite color right now, the pink the bigs and the purple the littles. Turned out super cute I think!!

Now I'm off to go get ahead on my projects ;) and I will see you all next time!! Have fun with this challenge!! It really is so much fun!! Thanks for popping by!!

Aurora Wings Challenge #63- Anything Goes using "Dragon Lore"

Welcome back!!! How was the holiday season for everyone? We have been crazy busy around here!! But finally settling down back into a routine!! This month our challenge for Aurora Wings is "Anything Goes" so I made this lovely dragon book mark to share with you using "Dragon Lore"
Isn't she stunning!! I have always loved this image so I was super excited to work with it this month!! I would love one day to color her larger than 3.75" x 2.5" though!!!
I added a lovely little rub on down in the corner when I matted it. I think it adds a delightful authentic touch!
Here's the back for you!! I am totally loving this quote!! It might go on my list of favorites!! I also added some nice oriental flower border rub ons to the back to keep the feel going.
The I slipped it in the bookmark sleeve and picked out a tassel to match!
Such a fun project!!
