Sketch Saturday- Purrrrfect Friend

Ready for some fun?  I am and have the perfect card for you.  Here is the sketch I worked with from Sketch Saturday

Here is my creation for this week. 

I love this sweet samp set from Jane's Doodles.  The kids with their big toothy grins are so cute. The kitty comes from another retired JD stamp set.  I used my copics to color, placed it over a circle and then a Journal Card from Simple Stories.  I added some paper strips and enamel dots from MME. 

When it made this it reminded me of a friend of I popped it in the mail.  I hope you like it! :)

I hope you like this creation and thank you for visiting!

Sometimes you just need a friend to inspire you.  I have a good friend who does that for me in so many ways. I recently made and sent this card to her to let her know how I felt.

This card is just too cute for words.  Specifically the cute Avery Elle Elephant coupled with the bubble paper.  It just reminds me of sweet little dumbo.  Anywho, I colored with Copics, I used another Avery Elle die to created the decorative corners.  The sentiment is from a Mama Elephant stamp set. 

So to my friend, you know who you are, thank you fro doing all you do.

When it's Dark- Sketch Saturday

Happy Saturday friends!  I'll start this day out by saying Happy Birthday to my sweet Mother (yesterday)!  She is an amazing woman and I can't imagine life with out her.  I am lucky enough to be spending the weekend with her as we speak. <3 nbsp="" p="">

Now while I have your attention, I want to share something else with you....

What a fun sketch!  I always love when there are interesting angles and flourishes.  This week's sponsor for SS is Sasayaki Glitter.

Here is my card for this week: 

Don't you just love this sweet image?!  I was recently introduced to Love Cynthia stamps by Ms. Toni Maddox (Frankiehelpscraft).   They are based in France but the purchase is oh so worth the cuteness! For this I used the same Gina Marie background starry sky die and then a Hero Arts circle die to cut it out.  Then I used my Ranger inks to distress and make the edges darker and then backed it with yellow paper.  Of course, I colored with copics.  Originally, I wasn't sure about adding the ribbon, but in the end it turned out just right. 

Head on over to Sketch Saturday to check out all the fun!

THD Challenge #10

Adventure is out there!  All you have to do is find it right?  Well this month's THD challenge will have you adventuring with your craft supplies, that is certain.  Get ready to be inspired!

Here is my take on this month's challenge:

For this creation I started with Neat &Tangled Origami Map stamped on  Strathmore Watercolor Paper.  I used my Zigs to color in the map with the colors from the inspiration photo.  Next I used a Lawn Fawn Journal Card die to cut out the shape I wanted.  The chevrons are also from the same die and I cut those out of black foam.  I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Hello Gorgeous set onto this soft green and used a circle punch to cut it out and mounted it with a foam square.  I hope you like it. :)

Are you ready?  Then put your lipstick on, buckle-up, whatever it is you need to do to create and join us for this fun challenge.  While you are over at the THD blog you can check out the other inspiration. 

Thanks for your visit!

Love Cynthia

OK, I have a new fave stamp company!  Well one among many to be honest...but the cuteness kills me!  Say hello to Love Cynthia's cute Life is Better in a Bikini.

Squee!  isn't she the sweetest thing?!  I love, love, love this sweet girl afloat on the lake and soaking up some rays. I colored her with my Copics and cut her out using my Scan n Cut.  The sun is from The Cat's Pajama's set and perfect for this scene.  The waves are done using an MFT stencil and two different Ranger Distress ink colors.  The plain papers behind, Saffron and Pool Party, are perfect to bring to this lake party. 

I hope you enjoyed this and thank you for visiting!

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.
