Hot Hot Hot


Good morning!  We have a new challenge for you at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Caz has chosen our challenge and it is "On the Beach".  Sounds fun!

I figured I couldn't go wrong with Bugaboo's Margaret!  She's colored with pencils and her (not so) teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini is embellished with glitter, along with her glasses.  The layout is the Deconstructed Sketch and I've used vellum clouds, a sparkly sun, and beads for embellishing.  I only hope I look this "Hot Hot Hot" (or as my 15 year old daughter would say "Hawt") when I hit the local beach!  LOL

Daisy Butterfly Tag



Good morning!  It's New Release Tuesday at Catch the Bug and I love the image I am using today...it is so elegant!

I've printed the image on patterned paper and added a coating of glitter to the outer border.  The daisies are embellished with pearls and I've tied the tag with fibers.  The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches; I finished the card with some pearls.

Merry Christmas


Good morning!  Today is the last day of Bugaboo's Christmas in July celebration; our challenge for today is to use the Freebie Friday image and something that starts with the letter "C".  You can find this adorable freebie here.

I've colored JJ with pencils and went with traditional Christmas colors.   Candy canes are the "C" element and I've embellished simply with a sentiment, ribbons, and brads.

For the Bride


Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches; our sponsor for the week is My Besties; the image I used today was a free one from Facebook.



Here's the sketch:


I've colored the image with pencils and paired it with a soft, pink floral from my stash.  I've matted it in dark gray to accent her eyes and the dots in the paper.  I've embellished simply with ribbon and beads.
