I'm a Little Behind

 Good morning everyone and Happy Easter to you!  I'm here with a quick post for Doodle Dragon Studios and Pike's Playground.  Our next challenge is once again birthday themed...the twist this time is that you must use 2 colors from the DDS website.

I used the adorable "Under Bear" along with yellow and blue for my card.  I do so love this card and I hope you do too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to check out Dustin's blog for more fab creations from the DT and to get all the deets for the challenge!  :O)

Doodle Dragon Studios Blogiversary Hop!

Welcome Dustin Pike fans to our second blog hop!  This is a party you will NOT want to miss.  If you have arrived from my fun lovin' teamie Ginny, you're right on track...if not please start back at Dustin's blog so you don't miss any of the fun (or chances to win)! 

We are delighted to share with you some of the amazing images Dustin has recently come up with.  Today marks Dustin's 2 year blogiversary and we, the Doodle Dragon Crew, want to show you some of the fabulous Blogiversary images you can get for a fantastic price!  You can locate these images HERE, as well as many more.  200 images plus for ONLY $20.00 USD during the blog hop ONLY!  See Blog Hop details below.

Here are a couple of fun projects I made using some of the blogiversary images...enjoy!
A digital layout of my son playing basketball...Dudley loves b-ball so much that even his skin has taken on the texture of a basketball!  I colored and "pieced" Dudley in Photoshop CS2.

A super cute new baby card using the duck and bubble frame.  I colored the inside and added the sentiment.  My original thought when I saw this image was that it would make an adorable photo frame for a baby bath layout, but I didn't have any pictures to suit.  Colored with Copics.

Next up I used the little lamb from the farm  collection...this little baby is so sweet!  I colored this one with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.

My last project for you was done with one of the utterly adorable hippos.  This one's out for an afternoon of sand, surf and sun...not to mention fun!  He's colored with Copics and the sentiment is a rub-on by Fancy Pants Designs.

Flying By To Say Hi!

Good morning, bleeps!  I hope your Tuesday has started off with a bang...figuratively, of course!  I'm here with another challenge for Anita Be Stampin Challenges!  This week we have another fab sketch by none other than Jen Shults of Deconstructing Jen.  She is beyond amazing and I'm glad to call her my friend!  Please hop on over to the blog to see all of the challenge deets and join us!

I have used the lovely and sexy rubber stamp called Broomhilda.  Everyone uses a witch for Halloween cards, but I'm here to say that witches can be used all year round!  ;O)

I hope you all like my card.  Thanks so much for coming by today!  :O)

Good morning and happy Saturday to you!  All is quiet here in the Pierce household this morning.  It is colder than a witch's...well, never mind that.  It's just cold!  Since it is and I have buddies that are being showered with snow as a type I thought I'd share a card I made back in December.  Yes, that's right...December!  I'm a slacker.

I used the adorable digi image called Snowman from Mo's Digital Pencil.  This is one of my fave images!  I had a blast coloring him up on kraft card stock with my Prismacolor pencils.  Woot!  I hope you like it and that you're nice and warm today!

Have a super weekend and thank you for stopping by!

I Love Your Smile!

Good morning, people!  I hope you are all doing better than we are over here.  My dear daughter is sickly...again.  We had her at Children's Mercy urgent care on Sunday...egads!  Turns out she has a urinary tract infection...she's miserable and I am too.  :O(  She felt a bit better today, so I'm hoping for a full recovery by tomorrow.

Anyway...I'm here for another fun challenge at Anita Be Stampin Challenges.  Today is a color challenge from our teamie Tracy.  :O)  I love it!  I used the Love Monsters set...aren't these little guys so sweet?!
