Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge

Hello crafty friends!!!  Happy Hump Day!  It's time for another Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge at The Wild Flower Patch!  Jen released some oh-so-cute images last week...if you missed it, you'll definitely want to head over to the Shop and see them all for yourself!  :O)

This week's challenge is a color challenge.  You must use BLACK, LIME & VIOLET.  Phew!  This was a rough one for me.  My lime transformed before my very eyes into a olive shade, but I really did try!  LOL!  I used the sketch from SFYTT over at I (heart) 2 stamp too!  Join us for this challenge for a chance to win goodies from the Shop!

Check out what the other girls on the DT did too...links are on the sidebar!  :O)

Sneak Peek & Sketchbook Wednesday

Good morning everyone!  I'm here again with another round of Sketchbook Wednesday at The Digi Shack!  This card contains a little sneaky peek of one of the new images from Brian Lock that will be released on Monday, July 5th!  What a silly kitty!  I just used a standard card base since I have made an A10 size twice in the last 2 weeks.  I'm not sure if you can read the sentiment or says "you know what they said about curiosity..."  Very simple card for me this week.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT to see what they have to share...links are on my sidebar.  Check back at The Digi Shack on Monday to SHOP TILL YOU DROP!!!

Hello all my crafty friends!  Today I wanted to share a digital layout of my Dear Daughter, Ariel.  She and her Grandma Debbie had a girls day out and this was one of the many wonderful photos I got from their trip.  What better time to use one of my favorite digital stamps?  "Jewel" from Wink Wink Ink was used here...don't you just love this dragon?  You can purchase her HERE!  I used the digital kit Happy Go Lucky by Shabby Princess.

Wild Flower Patch BLOG HOP!

***This is my second post today...if you were looking for my The Digi Shack post, please scroll down!***

Welcome to the Wild Flower Patch Blog Hop!  
If you arrived here from the very talented Angela's blog, you are right on target!  (If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Wild Flower Patch Challenge Blog.)  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stamper will win the entire new digital release!!  And when you're done hoppin', be sure to head over to the Wild Flower Patch Store, because ALL the new images are NOW available.

As you have might have seen from yesterday's preview,  Jen has created the most gorgeous summer digital images that include Beach Ivy, Sandcastle Violet, Surfer Reed and something special for those of you who are shivering on the other side of the world..Winter Dahlia. 

Today I used Surfer Reed for my challenge card.  He's a handsome little dude!  Our challenge this week is to use a unique fold in our creations.  I made my 2 pocket card by simply folding 1 sheet of 8.5x11 double sided dp.  Pretty cool, eh?  It reminds me of how we used to fold up our notes in school before we passed them off to our buddies.  ;O)  I have included a shot of the back as well as the card without the "tags".
Jen is also releasing some very special digital images to celebrate the release of Eclipse, Edward and Bella images that are a part of her "Twilight" collection.  You know I lurrrrrve these!  I made this card just for could I not?  I tried out a new way to color her hair...I'd love to hear what you think about it.  I think I like it.  :O)

I hope you enjoyed my cards!  Now it's time to hop on and see what amazing creation Risa has in store for you!

The Digi Shack's Release Day 5

Happy Thursday everyone!  I'm here with another of the fantastic new releases over at The Digi Shack.  Our new artist, Brian Lock, has really outdone himself!  What do you think of the new images so far?

Today's image is one I really love.  I can see it being used for so many things.  I just wanna squeeze him all up!

Be sure to visit the other members of the DT to see what they created...links are on my sidebar.  Don't forget to stop by tomorrow's the last day of our new releases and you'll be so happy you came by!!!

It's Wild Flower Wednesday!

Good morning all and Happy Wednesday!  I'm here with another sketch challenge for you.  Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge #19 is a sketch by our fearless leader, Jen Shults!

I made this card for my parents-in-law for their 46th anniversary.  Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad Pierce!  :O)

I used the digital images called RYE and VIOLET to make the happy couple.  My DP is one from the Madeline line by this paper!  I used nesties to cut out my couple and add the scallop around them.  I colored them in with my Copics and used some scraps of card stock from my stash.  Brads are from Doodlebug and CTMH, flower is by Prima and the border punch is a slim line called Parisian Edger by EK Suucess.  I used the same border punch to add a little decoration to the inside of the card along with a computer generated sentiment cut out with my nesties and colored with Copics.

Join us for a chance to win some goodies from the Wild Flower Patch Store!  :O)  Check out the rest of the very talented ladies on the DT to see their takes on the sketch too...links are on my sidebar!

Sketchbook Wednesday at The Digi Shack!

Happy Hump Day all!  It's time for another Sketchbook Wednesday at The Digi Shack!  Not only do we have a sketch for you, we are also on day 4 of 6 for the Brian Lock new releases!  This image is another firecracker...perfect for July 4th cards!  I got all bumfuzzled and used the wrong image...AGAIN!  So you get to see another round of skinny chicken!  Be sure to check out TDS Blog to see today's image.  ;O)  Here is the sketch and my take on it...

Visit The Digi Shack's blog to get all details on the sketch challenge and to link up to your creations!

Can I Get a Hoot Hoot?

WOOT!  Happy Tuesday again!  I'm back today with another cute creation featuring a digital stamp by Wink Wink Ink.  He is called Owlfie and you can find him HERE!  I layered 2 of the pre-colored images in Photoshop and printed it out.  I colored it a little more before I added it to my card.  The sentiment is computer generated and came from a t- shirt one of my son's friends has.  I figured since I was asking for 2 hoots, I better have 2 owls as well.  ;O)

Check out the other super cute images in the Wink Wink Ink Store today!  :O)

Had One of Those Days?

Hello all my crafty friends!  Welcome to day 3 of the new releases by Brian Lock at The Digi Shack!  This is one of my favorites so far.  :O)  Doesn't this guy look like he needs a hug?  He's had the worst of bad days! I know the feeling!  Gah!  I made this card originally for LAST week's Sketchbook Wednesday...only it wasn't to be released until THIS week.  As I sit here writing this on Friday the 11th, I see I messed it up again.  The skinny chicken is for TUESDAY, not WEDNESDAY! least I have plenty of skinny chickens to show off!  :O)
Here is my card AND the sketch from last week that I used!
