A Card And Some Exciting News!

First off I thought I would share a card that I made a while ago using a Stampavie Penny Johnson Design Stamp and some more yummy Stella & Rose paper. Its coloured with Copics and I've added glitter which of course only shows when you see it "live" they should really create some sort of fix for this. LOL!

Now on to my exciting news first off I won the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge yesterday Woohoo! So I get to choose some new digi's to play with from the Also have to tell you if you've never played over there before these girls are just so welcoming and friendly you really should give it a go!

That's not all that's new though, I've been waiting to tell you for a while now that I've been chosen as guest designer for the month of April for Deedee's Digi's.It's a little scary and a whole lot exciting!

They have an Inspiration Blog here which I'll I will be designing cards for and posting them on Wednesdays in April.

Just under the wire for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #93

Who's that sneaking under the entry deadline over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday? Oh Yeh that would be me, this one almost got away on me, where does the time go! Wish the camera had done this card justice it looks kind of faded in the pic, but it is actually almost turquoise in real life with a lot of sparkle.Arlana as usual provided a wonderful sketch and do check out the DT creations.

I'm also entering this in Christmas Stampin' all Year Long Challenge you can see right through that(use Vellum) because yes the sentiment is stamped on vellum.
Not the most creative use of vellum but then again me and vellum don't have that great of a relationship LOL!

Thanks for stopping by

Penny Black Saturday Challenge #143

Its been far to long since I've played over on the PB Saturday Challenge. This week for challenge #143 The theme is "Spring Is Sprung" and since we are having some very spring like weather it was easy to get in the mood for this one!

I havn't used this little guy before, but he sure is cute! I coloured him with Copics and added a little bit of stickles to the edges, flower, & watering can. The white layer under the flowers is made with the MS Heart Border Punch snipped and curled around to made a flower shape!

Make sure you check out the challenge and the DT creations!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and you get some nice weather to enjoy!

Sketch Saturday #146

So after a few weeks of doing sketch challenges following the sketch pretty much exactly I decided to try a little more interpretation on this "Sketch Saturday" Sketch for challenge #146. The Template for the egg can be found in this thread.

I really had fun with this card, nice to try something new but am glad that the sketch still shows through. Not much to really say about it the DP is older and I have no idea who made it. I tried to add some interest to the pink flowers as with all of the new flowers out there these tend to be a bit boring but I have so many of these flat looking ones I have to use them up. So I added a few stamens to the centers and it helped a little. Will have to play a bit more to get them right though.

Well its almost the weekend so hope everyone has a good one make sure that check out the sketch and the great cards the DT have created.

My Favorite Stampavie Stamp

This has to be be my favorite Stampavie Stamp. Its one that I never get tired of she's just to cute. I thought this time I would use her on a card for a friend that just purchaced a new home, so I paired her with my Magnolia houses. I love the little scene that they create together! Hope everyone has a great week, we are having some very spring like weather here! Hope wherever you are you are too.
