Spring

Happy Saturday friends!  Just popping by today to share this lovely bloom.  I don't know about you but I am ready for spring and this pretty peony from Essentials by Ellen (designer Julie Ebersole), really puts me in the mood.


For this card I used my Zigs and watercolor paper to color the boom and leaves.  Once done I fussy cut it out. You might have thought that would be totally eliminated from my life after getting the Scan n Cut, but nope, I still like to do it now and then.  I used The sentiment from Avery Elle.  The backdrop is a piece of Vellum that I ran through with a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder.  It looks so nice with the white background, the color jumps off the page.  Then of course some enamel dots.

Wish upon a star


Happy Sketch Saturday to you!  We have a really fun and challenging sketch for you this week!  Are you ready? 


The sponsor for this Week is Crafty Sentiment Designs. 




Here is my take on the sketch.  Pay no notice to the fact that my slant is misaligned...lol. 



Do you remember wishing upon a star?  I remember wishing soooooo hard, I would squeeze my eyes shut.  Well that is what sweet little Harriet here is doing.  She was super fun to color.  I cut out the flowers and butterflies, which would be perfect for another card.  But this card is made for a little girl who's birthday is coming up and she looks a little bit like Harriet here. :)  I used my copics, SU! paper and some sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas. 

OK, that's all.  Please head on over to the Sketch Saturday blog and check out what everyone cooked up.

So Sweet


Love comes in many shapes and sizes.  One of my fave shapes is Yeti shaped....  



Are you still doubting they exist and that they are the embodiment of love?  I think not.

This sweet guy from MFT is so cute colored so many ways.  I used some of my Lawn Fawn Christmas paper for the backdrop.  One of my fave bits is the embossed circle behind this guy, it looks like there is a snow storm behind, and yet, love endures.

Now who should I give this sweet guy to?

3 years young

Did you know Winnie and Walter turned 3?!  OMG time flies doesn't it.

I was over there the other day and they have a whole slew of challenges going on right now for their birthday bash.  So why not play along?

It was really hard to figure out which one to join, but in the end I picked this Mood Board one... at least to start...  Here is the inspiration photo:


Here is my take on the challenge: 


I picked up on some of the textures, colors and the flowers.  I love Gerber daisies and his was my first foray into no line stamping and watercoloring.  Not to shabby.  I love the way this bloom looks.  The sequins and LYB sentiment are the perfect touch.  I hope the W&W folks like it too. 

Thanks for the visit!

2016 Misses- 3

Back again with more!  Might have you wondering why I didn't publish all of these.  I guess I get tired after work and don't always have the energy.  So, I had a little spurt of it the other day and put all these misses together.







Isn't this a fun pack of cards?  I made this set for my Mom so she could gift them as she needed.  They all feature Mama Elephant Stamps, Copics, various SU! paper and Dear Lizzy DP.

Thanks for stopping by.
