Bugaboo Stamps sponsors us over at Come and Get It where "flowers" is the Theme!

No automatic alt text available.Just looking at this image from Bugaboo Stamps puts a smile on my face!  She's called Kidz Flower Basket and the theme over at Come and Get It Challenge is "Flowers".  I've got a daughter all grown now with blonde hair that has always shared my love of flowers.  And as Daisies are her favorite flower, I colored this beauty like I remember her.  Love all the details on a Bugaboo Digital Image and the images are so clear-makes it easy to color.  Used a very Spring like paper and complimentary assorted flowers on the front panel. One the inside panel I always like to finish it off so used an oversized polka-dot print and a KKS sentiment which is always perfect!  Hope this puts a smile on YOUR face too!

Cherry Blossom Geisha Girl Get Well Card--a Sherri Baldy image!

Having a bit of fun this weekend, mounting a Sherri Baldy  image I colored up with copics a while back--she's a Geisha called Cherry Blossom and can be found in Sherri's Store.  It's wonderful just coloring when you have a moment and then always having an image on hand!
I used Glacial Blue Wink of Stella on her flower beads hanging off of her flower cluster, and added a shiny silver corner accent with gem on the matted image as well as a hanger over the Get Well sentiment.  I've been saving this parasol paper sheet forever for just the right card-was so excited that it worked out for this one!!  On the inside, I used a creamy yellow crackle paper with a great KKS sentiment stamped on the inside. Hope my friend will thoroughly enjoy it!  Thanks for stopping by!

All Dressed Up Challenge is continuing through the month--new images available!

Hello Dressy Fans :)

It is again time to see what new All Dressed Up beauties Wendy has created for us, and you won't be disappointed.  These new images are just perfect for your Summer cards!
They are now available in the Etsy Store -}here 
I Chose to use the image called Day Dreaming and, as I have  a teenage Granddaughter, I gravitate towards these especially!  Wendy Burns has many of them in her Etsy Store.  Green and Purple is one of my favorite color combos-I needed a contrast color in order for the background treatment to show up properly so chose a warm vintage brown copic color.  In order to achieve this whimsical effect, it's made with using rubbing alcohol and Q-tips!  Mounted on a creamy yellow crackle paper, accented with metal button brads, using a vintage stamp design paper and stamped with a clear sentiment on front,  I love it!
Remember to pop over and buy them from our Etsy store and don't forget we have two challenges running right now - 
ending on the eve of the 14th 
ending on the last day on the month. 
The current theme is Stars and/or Stripes.
I am sure you will agree that Wendy has produced another four absolutely gorgeous images this month.  We'd love to have you come over and take part in the Challenge that's still going on through the end of the month-It's a great way to expand your digi library because the prize is an image from the store!

Polkadoodles is the Sponsor at Come and Get It! Theme is to use 2 or More Designer Papers~

No automatic alt text available. Over at Come and Get It, we've got a Challenge going on with the theme "Use 2 or  more Designer Papers" with any image.  The DT is using images by Polkadoodles and I'm so thrilled with her "Darling Bud" series!  The one I used is called Crocus_the Darling Buds. 
I probably should have used several different Crocus colors but I just love the color combination of pinks and greens.  There are so many beautiful images to use at this site-check it out!  After coloring her with copics, I mounted her on foam dots for dimension, found 2 different design papers and then started creating the cluster of flowers.  Before starting hot gluing them on, I placed 2 larger foam dots in the corner so I would have a base to push the stick pins of the green bird and pink enameled heart into.  I used a combination of paper flowers and rose buds in pink & white.  I added some white paper lace on the side of the image and 3 small pink epoxy dots in the bottom right corner.  On the inside, I found a complimentary paper, and stamped a KKS sentiment stamp on a die cut scalloped oval.  Come on over and check out our Challenge and hopefully yours will get picked by the DT to win some images!

A very whimsical Summer- like card for that friend's Birthday!
