Monster Balloon


Good morning; I have another fun sketch to share with you from Sketch Saturday!  The adorable image is from 2CuteInk...thank you.  There are some adorable images in the Etsy shop...you can check them out here.

The little monster is colored with pencils and I've added some googlie eyes.  The patterned papers are actually Halloween!  I moved the banner up, and added a button/googlie eye for embellishing.

Happy Birthday


Good morning; I'm back again with a card using the From the Heart Stamps sketch...there are still a few days to play along...and it's a fun sketch!

I used some papers that I still had on my craft table from one of my last projects...I love the bright colors and dots!  I took a simple approach to this card...minimal matting, I just used the Corner Chomper to add interest to the corners.  The image is colored with pencils and the balloon is accented with glitter; I've embellished with ribbon and a button.

Love at First Sip


Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Vickie has chosen our challenge...it is "For the Birds".  Of course, that made me think of the Birdbrains!

I've used a newer FTHS image; it's colored with pencils and I've added some glittery "eye shadow".  I spent quite a bit of time searching my stash to locate the coffee bean patterned paper...I knew it would be perfect though!  The "coffee rings" and sentiment are from Verve, and I've used Bella Dots for embellishing.

Ink: Printer, Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Burnt Umber
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Baja Breeze and Poppy Parade, McRice Photo Pages Patterned Paper
