Thanks a Melon


Good morning!  It's Freebie Friday at Bugaboo Stamps...our "freebie" for the week is Watermelon Butterfly Bear...isn't she adorable!

I went with a bright and cheery color combo...both colors are long retired from SU!...I used to use the combo a lot...I love pink and green together!  The image is colored with pencils and I've added touches of glitter.  I've embellished simply with a snippet of ribbon and a button.  Sketch is from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.

#OMGOSH


Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight I got to choose the challenge.  I love when it's my turn!  I went with "Humor"...I hope you will pull out your funny images and play along!

I used this week's From the Heart Stamps Sketch #109 and a Birdbrain.  She is colored with pencils and of course I had to glitter up her eyelids and tummy...that is part of the fun!  I pulled out some fun birthday papers from my stash and went with one of my favorite color combos...yellow and pink.  I embellished simply with a button/twine.

HB2U


Good morning!  I have a card to share using this week's From the Heart Stamps Sketch #108...here it is:


Great sketch!  I made an A2 card instead of a square though.  My Birdbrain is colored with pencils and accented with some glitter.  Don't you just love the expression on her face?  She looks how I feel when I have another birthday!  LOL  For embellishing, I've used my QuicKutz hand tool and "Metro" alphabet for the sentiment.  I like how this one turned out...the patterned paper is one of my favorites...I will be really sad when I use it all up!

Bugaboo...Anything Goes!


Good morning!  "Anything Goes" is this Saturday's challenge at Catch the Bug.  I needed a "Get Well" card so I went with that theme...and Dottie.  (FYI: I do have to say that I dress a bit more conservatively than Dottie!)

The image was printed and colored with pencils.  I've added some banners and twill for embellishing.  Clean and simple!

Along with a great sketch, we have a great sponsor...A Day for Daisies...I love the images!  I have colored this one with pencils and accented the wings with glitter.  I kept the background plain to focus on the image, I just added a bit of sponging for definition.  I've embellished simply with a bit of bling.
