What's Up?




Good morning!  I have a card to share that I made last week...yes, last week!  How does time get away like that?  Doodle Pantry sponsored last Thursday's Creative Knockouts "Furry Friends" challenge; while my card was posted on the D.P. blog, I hadn't posted here yet.

I used an adorable pre-colored image called Jiggles Giraffe; the set includes outlines, pre-colored images, sentiments, and patterned papers.  I paired the image with some paper from my stash; I wanted to highlight the pretty bow, but wanted a bit of yellow too.  (The third time is a charm...that's how many tries it took to get this right!  LOL  I kept picking out color combos, cutting the papers, and then deciding "No, that's not it!")  I printed an extra bow, cut it out, and popped it up for a little extra "oomph"; I added some mesh and brads for embellishing.

Good morning!  It's New Release Tuesday at Bugaboo; I have a card to share using a fun, new image.  The sentiment is colored with pencils and I've added a touch of glitter for some sparkle.  I went the clean and simple route and paired it with some text paper and added a few layers.  I think this would be perfect for my 15 year old daughter to give to a friend.

Do I look warm and fuzzy?


Good morning!  We have a new challenge for you at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Valou has chose our challenge and she would like to see "Ladies" on your projects.

Hmmm, when I think of a "lady", I think of a "proper lady" but I don't have a lot of those in my stash....  After checking with my teamies to make sure it was okay, I went with a "sassy lady"...Stella!  I love her!  LOL

Stella is colored with pencils and accented with a bit of glitter.  I used some fun Easter paper from my stash and embellished simply with a sentiment and mini brads.  Sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

Mushroom Talk


Good morning!  It's time for a new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches; this week our sponsor is Sami Stamps and I picked the lovely Mushroom Talk to work with.  Thank you, Sami Stamps!  Here's the sketch:


The image is colored with pencils and embellished with glitter; super sparkly for the wings and subtle for the dots on the mushrooms.  For embellishing I've put my dies to work and made some tiny felt flowers and adorned them with pearls before scattering them on a leafy vine die cut.
