Lots of Sunshine!

Happy Friday!  Wow, 3 cards in 3 days!  It has been so hot this week that I have been hiding out in the only room with air conditioning working on cards!  The only time I leave my room is to take the kids to the lake for a swim or to make dinner!  I love summer!

Just Chillin’

Happy Friday!  I was playing around with another digital image by Dustin Pike yesterday and came up with this guy, I had so much fun just colouring, it totally relaxes me and makes me forget about all the other ‘stuff’ going on.

I coloured the image and background with Copic markers, and then added some Diamond glaze to the water in the bird bath as well as the water drops, but you can’t see it in this picture.  I pierced around the outside edge of the card and then used a white gel pen to do the faux stitches.

Lisa,   is supposed to come over today, she has a broken computer that she wants Lee to fix for her.  While he is doing that, we will have a chance to stamp!  I always have fun when she comes to visit!  I hope you all have a great Friday and as always, thanks for stopping by!


Mojo Monday on Friday

TGIF!  Happy Friday everyone!  I am so happy that the weekend is finally here and I can relax for a couple of days.  I made this card earlier in the week, but just have not had the time to post it until today.  I used the Mojo Monday  sketch #80 and some of my favorite paper right now, the Fancy Pants Delight line.  I am just loving the bright cheerful colours of it.

 Mojo Monday #80

I stamped the sentiment with and embossed  it with clear detail embossing powder.  I then pierced around the edges of the sentiment and card base before layering it all together.  Another quick and simple card!

Paper:Bazzill, Fancy Pants (Delight)   Stamp: Cornish Heritage Farms (motivational centers)  Ink: Brilliance (coffee bean )  Accessories:Prima flower, Bo Bunny candy brads, satin ribbon, clear detail ep.

I am going to find a sketch or two to play with this afternoon and just have some fun!  I hope you have a great day and thanks as always for stopping by!


Cuttlebug Challenge ~ Be Inspired #25

Happy Wednesday!  This weeks challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge is sponsored by Sheetload of Cards and their sister site ShortCuts, who supplied the Design team with a few of their fab regular acetate and frosted card blanks!

I embossed the base with the Bloom dot folder and then put the card together following the sketch provided to us by Alicia at Sheetload.  I have to say that I had a great time with this sketch, it was very inspiring!  Other than embossing the card base, it think the rest of the card is pretty straight forward.  If you have any questions I would be more than happy to help you out.

Paper:Bazzill, Fancy Pants (Delight)  Stamp:Stamping Bella (Cosmobella), CTMH (Say it in style)  Ink: Memento (Tuxedo black), VersaMark  Accessories:Imaginisce flowers, Peggy’s Pretties (clear), Cuttlebug (Bloom Dot), Clear ep, Copic markers, EK corner rounder (small).

I am off to play today, I have a few ideas and want to see if they actually work!  I also want to see what the other Design team members have been up to this week, and I am looking forward to seeing what you create!  I hope you have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
