Sketch Saturday Challenge

I have decided to make a few more Easter Cards.  I came across some darling Digital Images at Whimsy and Stars Studio.  I purchased several images and today I decided to use the Dancing Egg and Chickie.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then found this great sketch on Sketch Saturday
This is my card.  I used felt to make the rolled flowers and leaves.  I love the little egg charm and thought it would complete the card.
So enjoy the card the check back because I have some more images that I am having fun with.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Every Easter I pull out this stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms called Hey Chickie.  They are just the most adorable images.  I went to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for some inspiration in making this card.
This is the sketch that I was to follow.  Here is my card.
So one Easter card is complete.  I feel like I am ahead of the game this year.  Well we will see if I get any more completed.

From the Heart Stamps Sketch Challenge #54

Time again to make a birthday card.  I am loving the cute little birthday candle birdbrain chick that is sold at From the Hearts Digital Stamps.  They are just adorable images.  I noticed their latest sketch challenge and decided to give it a try.

Here is my take on the challenge. 

You even get the sentiments when you buy the digital stamp.  I have decided it is the way to go.  Makes storage a dream.

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps

Now that Valentines Day is over, it is time to start thinking about Easter cards. 
They have a beautiful Cross stamp set at Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  I decided to use a clean and simple design for this card.  This is one of the New Release Sets that I have really enjoyed. 

It is never too early to start thinking "Easter".

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Time again for another challenge at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge today was to make something other than a card and the twist was to use chipboard.  You will see my chipboard was the scallop circle.  What fun it was to dig in my valentine pile of scraps and come up with this chocolate treat holder.
Be sure and check the blog for other creations by the Design Team.  I think they really outdid themselves with this challenge.

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps

Time again for another card from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.


The images I used were "GG0193 Heart Grass" and "EE0185 Always will circle". I also use a pink embossing folder for another one of the circles.  I then cut each 1 1/4" circles out of my cardstock and glued the images behind .  Be sure and check out some of the other new stamps from the new release from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Also check out what the rest of the design team came up with today on PPRS Blog.

Happy Birthday Debbi

Well today is my sister, Debbi's birthday.  I wish her the very best.  She is the most generous person you will ever meet.  She has a heart of gold and always put others first.  She is also my paper crafting buddy.  We have had so much fun in the crops we have been together on.  I guess it makes up for all the times she was mean to me as a kid.  LOL!!!!  Some day I will have to tell you about our cow incident. 

She is always the life of the party so I thought this card would be perfect for her. 
I decided to use the sketch above for my card design.  I used the digital stamp called "Stella - Life of the Party"  by Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  Her stamps have such personality.  You must check them out.

From The Heart Digital Stamp of the Month

Can't believe I am posting twice in one day.  But anyone from Kansas will know that it is snowing tons and I had a half day of work so Yippee, I get to work in my craft room in between shoveling 10 inches of snow.

Today's card I used From the Heart Digital Stamp of the Month for February.  It is called Birthday Candle Birdbrain.  I love these birds because they have such little personalities and so easy to color with my copic markers. 

Twisted Tuesday Challenges

What a fun challenge today is over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge was to see a sky represented in my creation and the twist was to see something that flies in the sky.  Of course I would pick butterflies.  I just can't get enough of butterflies.

Today was my first attempt at trying the brayering technique.  Well the right way anyway.  I got the tutorial from the brayering queen Michelle Zindorf.  If you have not checked out her blog, you must.  She makes using the brayer look so easy.  And I was amazed at how well it looked once I used her technique.

Thanks for checking in.  I hope to try this technique again soon.

FTHS Challenge #51

Still working on a few valentine cards.  Of course I love the Digital stamps that are designed at From The Heart Stamps.  I find that I am liking the digital stamps more all the time.  This is the sketch challenge #51.
This is my card that I designed with this sketch in mind.

I chose to use the image "Free Kitten and Heart"  because it reminds me of the 2 yellow cats I have at home.
I colored the image in with my copic markers and then stamped the sentiment on the gray designer paper.  I even added a little sewing around the long strips of paper.  I love this valentine paper.  It is from MME Lost & Found Heirloom. 

I would like to enter this card in a couple other challenges.
IDIC - Valentines Day Card
That Craft Place - Valentine
The Paper Players - Valentine card or 3D Project
