Special Thoughts

I am playing along with my Stampin Up! demos blog, The Rubber Redneck Stampede, with a sketch challenge. I haven’t joined in on her challenges for quite some time, and it was quite refreshing! I placed an order through Holly a little while ago, and received from her a thank you gift of papers, ribbons, and buttons, that I have used on this card. My materials list is below. Stampin Up! is having some big changes coming up in the new catalog, and cannot wait until June to see it! I have about 6 years worth of idea books, and still anticipate the new ones!! Check Holly’s site above if you’d like to purchase any products, and do check her blog too, as she always has the cutest projects! And if you want even more, you should really check out her youtube channel, she has many videos that I just love to watch(and learn!) Thanks for stopping by!

Black and White

Our theme this week at the 2 Sister’s Challenge Blog is black and white with a touch of color. Our sponsor is the Digi Garden, and I chose to use this image called Lucy. She is really cute! I have paper pieced her dress and shoes, something I haven’t done with a digi before, and am very pleased with it! I had to print her off in reverse onto the back side of the black patterned paper so I could see the print lines. Worked like a charm.  I’ll have to do this more often, as I have many digi’s now!! And I punched out a red heart for my touch of color. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. I hope you get to join us for this week’s challenge!

Friends With Flair Day!

That’s right! It’s Friday! Time to share projects on the Unity blog! Make sure you get yours uploaded for all to see! My card today features a Phyllis Harris for Unity itty bitty called You are My Main Squeeze. Phyllis has the most adorable images! So sweet! She is colored in with my watercolor pencils and blender pen. Enjoy your journey through the Friends With Flair hop, and have a wonderful weekend!!

Rain or Showers

That is our theme this time around at Get Hippity with Ippity! Seeing as how I don’t have any Ippity stamps that show rain, umbrella, etc., I had to get creative with this one. My clouds are actually the thought bubble from the set Sweet Thoughts of Spring, and left off the trail of bubbles. And the sun was made by stamping the Gurnsey Gingham background stamp, then punching and cutting out the shapes. I used watered down ink and a paintbrush to splatter on some rain for the background. And the sentiment is an Ippity itty bitty called Happy are Those. There is only a few days left to enter our challenge!! Thank you for stopping by today!

Wednesday Inspiration

I’ve made a second card for our Wednesday DT inspiration at 2 Sister’s Challenge Blog. Our theme this week is to use a digi, now how simple is that?!! One of our sponsors is Robyn’s Fetish, and this is one of there images called Heloise Garden Gal. She is colored with my pencils, except for the skintone, which is marker. The ovals were cut out from my Creative Memories Oval Patterns, used up some scrap papers, stitched around the edge, added some gems, and the sentiment I believe is from Unity. That’s it from me today! Thanks for stopping by!!

Ba Ba Black Sheep!

I’ve always thought of myself as the black sheep of our family. Not in a bad way, just different! 🙂 So when this image came up for us to use at 2 Sister’s Challenge blog, I just had to use it! The theme this week is to use a digi , and our sponsor is Robyn’s Fetish, and this image is called Love Ewe. So cute! So I colored him black with my ProMarkers, and tan for his face, legs, and ears. The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set, and thought it was quite appropriate for my little black sheep!! The papers are from Lily Bee Designs. Thanks for looking in, and I hope you’ll join us and go check out what my other DT mates have done!

Flight of the Butterfly

The butterfly’s are just flying around everywhere here! Some may be a type of moth, but they are pretty just the same! These papers are from the new Pink Paislee’s London Market collection. A very soft color palette they have. I am following a sketch from the Chick Challenges {with ippity} blog below. The scalloped edge of the card was made with my Creative Memories Jumbo Scallop Circle pattern. I stamped the flowers from the Ippity set Friends+Flowers=Priceless set, and fussy cut them out, and the sentiment is from the New Season New Wonder Ippity set. I am also linking this to the Unity Friends with Flair. Thank you for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
