Entry Number 2...



for the DigiStamp Boutique April competition. Since I don't know when I'll have this much time to devote to being online again, I best post this now! This little cutie is part of the Easter Collection, which is chock-full of 8 images (boy and girl versions), and is on SALE right now! I'll wait while you all run to pick that up now...

Have you made it back? I hope I didn't enable you "too" much! LOL The dp this time is from "The Spring Stack" from DCWV. Looking at it now, I think I may have used a few too many different ones! Ah well, live and learn! The image is colored with PrismaColor markers, and I had fun doodling around the edge using the next size down in the Spellbinders Large Ovals as a guide. Another lollipop flower, this time done in two different pinks, with Cotton Candy Stickles around the edges, and a green button in the middle. The sentiment is from the same set as before, Greetings, from TPC. It is actually Best Friends, but I just masked the "best" out of it.

Well, thanks for having a look, and take care!

Easter card and entry one for DigiStamp Boutique April challenge






Greetings all my friends in blog-land! I hope you are all doing and feeling well! I am getting over a cold , which really wreaks havoc with me singing along to songs on DISH. Right now I am listening to "The Bridge", whose tagline reads "The Softer Side of Classic Rock". *happy sigh* It's like re-living my early years! At this moment, John Lennon is singing "Starting Over". LOVE IT!!! Ooooohhh, it just changed to Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown"!!!




Anyway, onto the reason for my post...to show you one of the Easter cards I made, which is also my first entry in the DigiStamp Boutique's April challenge. I really love the images Sally-Ann draws...so cute! This guy was the freebie she gifted us with in January, and hopefully he is now in the hands of a good friend of mine from World of Crafters! :) The dp is from a 6x6 paper pad from MME, "Ooh La La". Cute stuff! The lollipop flower was sprayed with Martha Stewart's Tiger Lily pearl paint mixed with water (OH MY, does it have awesome sparkle!!). I edged each piece with Spiced Marmalade distress Stickles, and glued a small orange button smack dab in the middle. I gotta tell ya, these flowers I have been making are so much fun to do! AND addicting! The little guy himself was colored with PrismaColor markers, and a pink Crayola for his ears. I added just a smidge of sparkle on the carrot with Gelly Roll pens. The sentiment is part of a set from The Paper Company called Greetings.




I guess that should be all anyone would wanna know about this card. Take care while Sir Elton John serenades me with "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".....

JB12:07, Happy Hybrid Holiday



Hello all my friends in blog-land! Long time, no post! I just haven't been taking the time to get online at home much, since we have diiiiiiiiaaaaaaalllllllllll-uuuuuuuuuuppppppp. And it's sooooooo sloooooowwwwwwww. LOL Really, it just takes forEVER to do anything productive. But enough dribble, I'm sure you'd all really rather see a card!

This is the card I've concocted for the latest prompt over at Jingle Belles, to use a digital image on your card/project. No problem for me, I love digis and have TONS...but I am always collecting more! This cutie comes from Meljen's Designs, and he is called Snow Bunny. Melissa draws the most ADORABLE animals, doesn't she?? I guess I went pretty traditional with the colors on this image. I had fun adding puffy paint to his hood and sleeve trim! And of course, I snazzed up the snow mounds with some Stickles. Lately, I have been experimenting making flowers out of dryer sheets. Mostly I was just die cutting them with circles and scalloped circles, but this time I decided to try using the Flower Layers Sizzix die. Worked like a charm! The sheet was first sprayed with my own homemade glimmer mist, I let it dry, then die cut it, and added gold Stickles around the edges before assembly. I also crinkled up the layers first too. I'm rather pleased with my results! I haven't added a sentiment yet, just because I didn't take the time to! :) Well, that's it for this long winded post. Take care! :)
