A Flower for You

Are you tired of my orange and blue colorway yet?  I'm thoroughly enjoying this MME Stella Rose and Gertie paper pack!  Here's a Whimsy and Stars image today and the sentiment is an old Studio G clear set from Michaels.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Another Ducky!

I colored this particular little duck during Copic certification last year.  I just love those colors! The sketch is this week's "Card a Day" sketch from the Savvy Projects blog, the papers are MME Stella Rose and Gertie, and ... ummm... something else I had on my desk??? and the images are all retired TAC stamps.

Have a blessed day!

So Sweet!

Another KnK Designs image today!  All together now... "Awwwww, how sweet!!"  The papers are all the scraps on my desk. :-)  You'll see some of them on different cards this week and next. :-)  The sentiment is from Stampin Bella.  Love it!

Adorable Duck

A couple of years ago, TAC had this adorable set of animals on a Spring special, and I missed it!!! Grrr. A friend sent me a few of the images to play with, and I've been hoarding them up until now, but this was a perfect fit with the Sketch of the Week on the Savvy Projects blog!  If any of you Angels happen to have this set, though, I'd love to get ahold of it!!

The sentiment is from Singing Praises, another of my favorites!   After being inspired by Marisa, I've been enjoying sending out a lot of my cards, so I'm trying to put sentiments on my card that make them very versatile and this one is just perfect!

Have a blessed day!

Doesn't Mabelle have the cutest images in her Whimsy and Stars Etsy shop?  This adorable little nurse makes a perfect card for someone who needs a little TLC!!

KnK Designs Release Day!!

It's release day at KnK Designs today!  Yippee!  In case I haven't told you, my daughter, Katlyn, has started a digi store - with adorable images and fabulous prices, I might add!  I hope you'll drop by the store and the blog and give her some love today!!

For my card, I used the new Little Teddy set and some new MME paper.  I colored the teddy bear with copics and used an "old standby" layout, and some eyelets... another old standby!  If you stop by the KnK store, be sure to scroll down to see the get well stamps.  They are some of my absolute favorites!

Thanks for stopping in today!

TAC Chalk Hop

I'm not sure I can remember the last time I had my chalks out!  But today's blog hop over at Savvy Projects is to make a card using your Angel Company stamps and chalks.  Check out all the inspiration!

For my card I stamped my flower and leaf image in VersaMark and then rubbed the chalk over them with a q-tip.... the old "Poppin' Pastels" technique.  I then stamped in some swirls and speckles to fill in my background.  The Friend stamp is from the Singing Praises set, which is current.  All of the other stamps are retired, I think, sorry!

Here's another Angel Company card that I made the other day, following this week's sketch challenge... mostly. :-)  It uses the hostess set "Thanking God" and the set "Showers of Blessing".

Thanks for stopping by!

Flowers for Mom

I used another of my favorite images from the Whimsy and Stars release to make a quick notecard with today's Sweet Stop Sketch.  I adore this little girl's pigtails!!  Somehow my picture looks like I can't match colors... but they do look better in real life, I promise!

I won't be on the computer much tomorrow, so HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the Moms out there!  I hope your families spoil you!

A Card for Today

I changed my card up just a little from the TAC sketch for the week, and rotated it, but most of the sketch elements are still there.  This little bird from the Singing Praises set is so much fun to color!  I colored him with copics, and sponged in some pink clouds to go along with the free "Robyn" digi paper that I used for the background.  You can get the paper free on the TAC website.  I printed one 8.5 x 11 sheet of each pattern and I've really made quite a few cards from it!

Thanks for stopping by!


Birdhouse Girl

Today's card still uses TAC's Week One Sketch as its starting point, but has a totally different look and feel from the other two that I've done this week.  This time I used the Whimsy and Stars digi "Birdhouse Girl" and chose a soft color palette.  The swiss dotted blue "ribbon"is actually a piece of cardstock that I drew dots on with my white gel pen.  Nifty, huh! :-)

I'm entering this in the Shelly's Images  challenge -  Sugar & spice, girly & sweet.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lucy's Christmas

Over on The Angel Company's Savvy Projects Blog, they are having a "Card a Day in the Month of May" challenge.  There is a sketch for each week and you use the same sketch all week long.  I'm going to try to play along, as much as I can, mostly using my TAC stamps, but probably with a few of the Whimsy and Stars digis in there, too... since she illustrates for TAC as well.  In fact this Lucy set is one of her stamp sets!

This card is my card for the 1st.  I was out of town yesterday, so I'll have to try to make two cards today. And I need to place an order today, because the Stamp of the Month is the Sunflower one that's on the TAC homepage and I love it!  I found one of my projects on the TAC home page too!! :-)  How fun!!  I feel *special*!!!!!!

If you need to place an order and don't have a TAC demo, let me know and I'll hook you up with someone!!
