The Sugar Bowl #61 Kiki's Sketch

Hi! It's been a crazy time. I've been to Oregon with my mom-in-law, we celebrated her 99th birthday end of May. I am in Florida until the end of June when we are going to go pick her up (she has a caregivier with her) and bring her back to FL mid-July. Then I should be here. I made this card for my husband for Father's Day. The theme of this week's Sugar Bowl was love/weddings. No weddings coming up. But I wanted to express my love to my hubby as the father of our children. I used this adorable image from Sugar Nellie, colored it with Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol. I cut the image out and popped it out with foam circles. The hearts are also popped out. The paper is from Basic Grey Mellow (wanted a masculine paper). The hearts and flower are also from BG Mellow. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp. The brad is also from BG. Inside the flowers are from Prima flowers, the two rhinestones are Kaiser Craft, and the brads are from my stash. I cut the circles and inside with Nestabilities. The base blue paper is from Stampin' Up. Guess that's it. Thanks for lookin'!

PWCO #70 Sketch and Tuesday recipe

I made this card for two of Paper Works Co challenges: Sunday's sketch #70 and today's Tuesday recipe. I colored this adorable image by Rachelle Anne Miller with my Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. The flowers are Prima. The striped paper is from my stash (don't know company) and the floral paper is from The Paper Studio. I used a ribbon from my stash to seperate the dp's. The sentiment is from Flourishes. The yellow cs is Stampin' Up. I cut the image out with Nesties labels.

That's about it. Thanks for lookin'!

FTTC 99 and Mojo Monday

This card was made for Florishes Tuesday Challenge... their 99th challenge. Be watching for their 100th next week! I didn't plan to make two purple cards back to back, it just sorta happened. This paper is Basic Grey's Wisteria. I love this paper. The cs is SU. The rhinestones are KaiserCraft. I colored the cute spring image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The sketch is from this week's Mojo Monday. That's about it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Marlene's Sketch #50

I love the stamps/images from Sugar Nellie. I had noticed that most of my stamps are spring/summer! I need to broaden my collection! This stamp is "Planting Some Love". I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and cut it out with Nesties. The paper is DCWV Nana's boy. The pearls are KaiserCraft. The ribbon is from my stash. The cs is SU. I sponged around the image with chalk. That's it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

New Beginnings

Spring and flowers always signify new beginnings for me. So I chose this Gruffies stamp with the Wheelbarrow and potted plant to signify New Beginnings for spring... even though it's still a long way off! I colored with Copics. The paper is Making Memories English Garden and the ribbon is also MM. I used the sketch from Sketch N' Stash #52. I used my Nesties Oval scallop to cut out the image and popped it up on foam dots. That's it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Happy Birthday Kathy

Hi! I made this card for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kathy. Her birthday is the 7th. This is for Whiff of Joy's 94th challenge. I like Kim's sketch for this challenge. I used SU cs red and Basic Grey dp. The flowers are Prima and the pearls are KaiserCraft. The ribbon is Offray. I colored the image(s) with Copics. I Stamped Willow then covered the image and stamped the chair using my Stamp-a-majig for the very first time! (I've had it for months) I used the stiped paper to look like wallpaper. I cut the stripes out using Nesties Label 16 the largest one. I cut out the chair and Willow and popped them up on foam squares. Think it turned out ok.
Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
