Some Odd Girl Sketch

I used Duck in boots. I just think this just a super cute image. I colored than ink around the image and put some ink on the boots to represent splash of water. It is for the May sketch challenge and Trash you Stash challenge.  I decided to change the circle to a square. I used some Authenticate DSP and Stampin card stock.

Melonheadz Challenge

Welcome to Melonhedz challenge! This time our challenge is to create a Father's Day card. I know mine might not seem like a card that fits the challenge but before we had kids our dog was our child. I thought this would a fun card to give to my hubby or brother. The set is called Jessica's lab bundle. I used the colored version for the card so it was quick. I used DCVW Indie Chic and some Stampin Up papers for this card.

Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude

Welcome to Inspired Stamps Gratitude Sunday! This weeks ATC uses a lot of different techniches. For the base I rubbed different inks on it then took another piece and inked it with different colors. I then punched the butterflies. It may be bigger than ATC since I added the scripture to the side but I like the distress look with brighter colors.
The scripture vers for this week is 1 Corinthians 13:13. This is something I need to learn to do more. I know this is hard for me because I can't do all that I want to do so I tend to be short sighted.

Inspired Stamps ATC

Welcome to 52 weeks of Gratitude with Inspired Stamps. This week we are using Mark 10:27. This scripture is really what I need to lean on. I had my son's college graduation last week, other big events this weekend and next and then my daughters high school graduation. I know I can get everything done but having to remember that God is in control. I can't do as much as I like since I still am learning how to deal with foot/hip problem. They are never going away. They may get better but it just takes time. Praying for everyone and that we may remember that ALL THINGS are possible with GOD. We just have to let him take control.

Polka Dot Umbrella

This card was fun to color and to make. The image is from Some Odd Girl. The bunny was a gift from my hubby. I love it because it sings and moves it's hat. I used Glossy accents on the image to give the effect of rain. The dsp was embossed than rubbed with ink.

Welcome to another week of Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude. This week we are using 2Timothy 1:7.  I am having a blast making these ATC's. They are so easy to make and I think I am going to make either a set of cards with them or a Scripture book. The butterflies were embossed and then inked.

Inspired Stamps

Welcome to this weeks Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude. This week we are focusing on Mark 10:27. I really need to lean on this scripture as this is a crazy month for me. I just swiped some ink across the paper then inked the edges with a darker ink. The buttons have liquid pearls but it sunk in so I will fix that later just not sure.

Bee Happy

The liquid pearls got messed up while taking photo. I will cover that up later with buttons later on. I just had to share this using the Sweet Stop Sketch using this cute set and some dies. The panel behind the bear is kraft with the gold swirls. I added the green oval with ink.


The challenge at There She Goes stamps is April showers bring May flowers. I choose to use flowers. I stamped the flower image on the DSP using You're a Hoot stamp set. The small flowers are from my stash.

I am playing with papers that I found while trying to straighten my craft room. I seem to be making more of a mess than cleaning. I treated my self to these dies and love them. The sketch is from Chic Challenges. The colors are Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz and Chocolate Chip.
