Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Time again for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  I love the challenge today because I think it just pops out.  The challenge is black and white plus one other color.  You will see the color I added is red.  I think there is nothing more beautiful the red, black and white.  What a wonderful color combination.

Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge

Since it is rainy outside, I am going for 2 posts in one day.  I wanted to use the monthly free digital designed by "From the Heart Digital Stamps" called Spring Medley.  If you play along with them every month, you will get a free digital.  Be sure and check out their blog because they have a very talented Design Team. 

I went to Tuesday Morning Sketches for inspiration for my card.
This is the sketch from the challenge and below is my card.

Freebie at Meljen's Designs

This weekend they have a freebie at Meljen's Designs Digital Shop.  It is this adorable apron.  Just think what you could do with it.  I went to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for inspiration for my card. 
This is the sketch I decided to go with for my card.  Here is my card. 
 I have noticed lately that alot of people are decorating the inside of their card.  I love these papers from Simple Stories called Vintage Bliss because they use my favorite colors so I used as many as I could.
I paper pieced the apron by printing it on 2 different papers and added a few pearls.  Be sure and check out Meljen's Designs Club on Facebook for more ideas and links to freebies in the store.

Two Paper Divas

I can't believe Easter is tomorrow.  The weather here is finally warming up and so nice to enjoy these beautiful spring days.  We have been painting the outside of our house and having beautiful weather for it.

If you haven't looked lately, Two Paper Divas are now carrying clear stamps and they are the nicest quality.  You get such a nice image when stamping.  I used the bunny and carrots and fussy cut them for my card.  I also used their jar stamp which is always so much fun. 

I love the digital bingo cards that they carry also.  So versatile and you can use them for so many different things.  Be sure and watch Two Paper Divas because I have heard they are coming out with new stamps soon.

Happy Easter everyone!

Twisted Tuesday Challenges

Time again for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge today was to used more than 3 patterned papers in you project and the twist is to use doodling somewhere on your project.

I just returned from a retreat and some wonderful friends helped me in the paper selection.  I just said I need some matching papers and these papers appeared.  I can't believe I went to a scrapbooking retreat and forgot to take my patterned papers.  But having great friends helps and they supplied me with these beautiful purple papers.  You will notice that I added some black lines all the way around the pieces.

Hope you enjoy my card and be sure and check out the other great projects the design team has come up with this week.

Happy Sunday

Today's card was image chosen by my secret sister in a group that I am in from Splitcoast Stampers.  We were to pick five words and then they were to send you a kit to make a project with. This is a picture of the kit I was sent.  The image is called A Day for Daisies from Daisy Window.  I have to say the first thing I did was eat up the yogurettes. Delicious.  I have to find some of those.

This is a picture of the card that I made using some of the embellishments above.  What a fun challenge.

This was my kit from February.  Now I need to work on my March kit.  I love this group because they always have such great ideas and are a bunch of very talented women.

March Challenge Card

I am in this wonderful group of ladies on SCS and each month we pick an image for our challenge.  March was my month and I chose Stampavie "A Bird on a Dogwood Branch".  I colored the image with my copic markers.  I don't think Bluebirds are that bright of a blue but it sure stands out. 
If you can get on to Splitcoaststampers, you can see some of the other images HERE.  What a fun card this was to make.

Twisted Tuesday Challenges

Happy April 1.  Spring is definitely here and I love April because of the flowers starting to bloom.  All the new scents and colors is wonderful.

It is time again for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  I must admit I had a hard time with this challenge.  The challenge today is "Make Me Laugh Foolish Jester" and the twist is to make you laugh.    Had to go out of my box a little bit.  We were provided this picture and asked to use it as inspiration.
I tried to find a jester stamp but did not have one.  I found this adorable little Jester at KaDoodle Bug Designs and it is called DS Jester Peeker.  I colred with image with my copics and found a flower pot die and thought he would be cute peeking out of there.  Not sure if this card will make you laugh but it definitely will make you smile.
