Thinking of You

Hi All!  I've just got a quick little post tonight :)  I'm in love with the Perfect Matches line over at Tickled Pink Stamps and I've got Lil Lad Eric paired up with his Perfect Match Christina on my card today- aren't they so cute?  They are so much fun to color, which I did with my Copics, though I have to admit Eric's hair was not at all how I planned it, in fact I wasn't even sure that I was going to be able to keep the image at one point because it was looking so bad, but thank goodness for happy mistakes because I ended up really happy with how it turned out!  All I can think when I look at these two paired up is that if they were a real couple they'd be so cute I'd probably hate 'em just a little...thank goodness they're just stamps :)

Butterfly Smiles

Hi All!  Well, you know that saying 'Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug'?  Lets just say the past week or so I was not on the winning side of that equation :)  But things finally calmed down and I got to spend some quality time in my craft area which has definitely made things a lot better!  I was able to purchase some of the new stamps from Tickled Pink Stamps in digi form when their digi week started on the 15th and I couldn't wait to color up Lil Little Lilith- she is definitely a new favorite- with my Copics and then it was killing me that I hadn't put her on a card yet so I paired her with some butterflies that I cut out of some DCWV matstack papers from the Mariposa line so I can enter Tickled Pink's Challenge for 'Cute with Butterflies'.  As I started out I wasn't sure about how it was all looking but it actually came together pretty well by the time I sat back and looked at the final product- thanks in no small part to a cutie of an image :)

A Fairy Happy Birthday

Hi All!  I've got a first to celebrate tonight...it's the first challenge over at Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge which I'm super excited to enter!  I love sketch challenges because they always push the boundaries of my creativity and force me to stretch my 'style'...and this challenge is even more inspiring because of the awesome DT members that are heading it up.  All that inspiration in one place is pretty mind blowing!  I hope my card measures up :)  I've paired papers from a new paper pad called Uncommon made by Authentique with the Fairy Kira stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps.  Matched up with those are some of my favorite things- some flowers, a generous sprinkling of bling and a Tim Holtz metal embellishement...when all these things end up on the same card you really can't mess it up too bad- at least that's what I tell myself  :)  Hope you enjoy!

It's The Simple Things

Hi All!  I know you're shocked that I'm doing two posts in two days but I told you I had lots of crafting time this weekend :)  I've been eyeing the sketches over at Deconstructed Sketch and I finally got my bum in gear in enough time to get one entered.  I flipped it on its side and left off the sentiment just because I'm not sure exactly what I want to use it for yet.  I may use it for a birthday card to fill an order or I might just keep it for my own stash mostly because I really like how the coloring on Pippa from Tickled Pink Stamps turned out this time around....she's so much fun to color and every time I just like her more!  So here's another card from my crafting whirlwind...hope you enjoy :)

You Make Me Smile

Hi All!  Thank goodness for 3 day weekends :)  I finally got some good coloring/crafting time in and boy did I need it!  I can't say I'm looking forward to going back to work tomorrow but I am way more recharged than I was before.  One of the cards I can't wait to share is this little beauty.  It's no secret that I love Kenny K images and this one called Download Diva is a particular favorite of mine...she is so much fun to color and you can really do so much with her.  I paired her with a new paper pad I picked up by Lilybee Designs called Picket Fence, I just love the pretty lavender papers in it.  To challenge myself a little I decided to try a new sketch challenge over at Graphicat Sketches and I encourage you to check it out...I fell in love with the sketch when I saw it and I still loved it when I got done with the card which doesn't always happen for me- all because I can't figure out how to use it to its full potential of course :)  And I've got one more place I want you to check out- if you like my ticket sentiment you have to stop by the MMDesigns blog and take a look at the free digital stamp sentiments there- they are totally awesome!  Well, I guess the only thing left is to say I hope this card makes you smile :)
