Photo Inspiration @ Stamp Fairy

Good afternoon, my crafty friends!  I wanted to pop on and share my latest find with you!  I found a new digital stamp company called Stamp Fairy...the owner's name is Gerda and she has some of the cutest little bears ever!  I fell in love when I spotted Lenny!  I am joining in their current challenge at Stamp Fairy Challenge with this card.

I used the digi called Lenny Flowers 2 to go along with this week's photo inspiration.  I colored him in with Copics, of course!  I hope you like it!  :O)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Lots of love to ya!

Good morning everyone!  I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.  I'm here this morning with another round of challenges at Anita Be Stampin Challenges!  I do hope you'll join us!  We have some fun changes that will be implemented starting this week too...regarding prizes.  Come on over and check it out!

I used the adorable Celebration Cooper for my card today.  The sketch was fun and created by our very own teamie, Jen Shults!  I used some BG Olivia paper and I just love it!  :O)  I tried to get a good picture of the ribbon since that's where my sentiment came from, but I didn't do a very good job capturing it...satin ribbon is apparently not my friend.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I love it when you do!  :O)

The Burtonesque Dolls

Good morning, my fiendish friends!  I am doing a little guest spot over at The Burtonesque Dolls this week.  Do come over and see all the deets and join in the new challenge!

I have used the new image called Jack.  He was paper pieced for my card.  The sentiment is funny to me, but I am lucky enough to NOT have any gray "hares".  Who will get this card, hmmmm?  Muahahahahahaha!  I hope you like it.  :O)

Hope is like a Butterfly

Hello everyone!  Happy Friday!  I hope you're all as excited as I am!  I get date night with the hubs and I couldn't be happier.  :O)

Today I came by to show you the card I made using the freebie image over at Wink Wink Ink called Valentine Butterfly.  Here's proof that it doesn't HAVE to be used for a Valentine's card.  ;o)  I colored it using my trusty Copics.  I added some sparkle (better picture of the sparkle at the end) to the wings by using embossing powder.

Thanks so much for coming by means so much!  MWAH!

TOAD-ally Fabulous

Happy St. Patrick's Day to one and all!  I do hope you're wearing green...I've already pinched my dear son today for lack of the color!  ;O)

Today Dustin Pike has put up a huge sale of 52 digis for just $10.  What's better than that?  If you order TODAY and today only he will include a special extra 14 images!  WOOT!  Get your booties on over and check out all the deets!  

I used the frog frame for my sample card.  I printed out 2 of the image and cut out the head and hands and popped them up for some added dimension.  The frame is blank in the middle and I added the sentiment into mine.  The Divine Twine is called Green Apple and can be found RIGHT HERE!  :O)

Thanks for coming by today!

Boy, Oh, Boy!

***Please scroll down for my Anita Be Stampin Challenges post!  Thanks!***

Spring kiddos are on it all week.  Would you believe it SNOWED yesterday?  UGH!  Really!?  Lucky for me I live in a place that the weather changes 12 times a day.  Our 2 inches is melted and gone already!  Weird!

It is time to play at Pike's Playground again.  Make something fun using "Spring Showers" as your theme.  This could be wedding showers, baby showers, spring, rain showers with Dustin's adorable images...use your imagination!  Check out THIS POST to see all the deets!

I used an older image for my card and went with a baby shower card.  My coloring didn't turn out so hot, but the awesome LIGHT BLUE WRINKLED RIBBON from Really Reasonable Ribbon more than made up for it!  It was so lovely to work with and man, oh, man!  Have you seen all the yummalicious ribbons over there???  Heaven!  The current challenge (that is being sponsored by Dustin Pike) is ONE FOR THE BOYS.  Bonnie sent off some delish ribbon assortments for a couple of Dustin's DT to play along and I loved being one of them!  Be sure to follow the RRR blog and shop till ya drop, people!

Thanks for coming by today, loves!  Hope to see ya again soon!  Mwah!

Rainy Day Friends

Good afternoon all!  I hope you're all well...I have a sick baby in the house today.  Ariel has come down with something already.  We think it's strep throat since there have been cases at the school.  Poor girl!  She's had lunch, medicine and is now all snuggled up in her bed watching Twilight.

I wanted to share I card I made the other day that I never got around to posting.  It's one of the new images from Wink Wink Ink called Rainy Day Friends.  I used the pre-colored version since Melanie did such a fabby job on it.  There is also a freebie sentiment to go along with this image!  It made for a quick card and I love the way it turned out.  :O)

Have a wonderful day everyone!  :O)

Thanks a Bunch...

Hey, hey!  Good morning everyone!  It's time for another challenge over at Anita Be Stampin Challenges.  Welcome March...the first Tuesday of the month means a color challenge!  Anita gave us a very sophisticated color combo this week.  Come on over and join us!

I used the cutie patootie cling mounted rubber stamp set called Bears and Bunches.  He is so sweet isn't he?  I also used some Divine Twine from the ABS Shoppe.  I colored it with my Copics to match the cream colored card stock.

Thanks for coming by today!  Check out the ABS Challenge blog to see all the other amazing projects from the DT!  :O)
