If Friends were Flowers...

Hello again, thanks for dropping by. Today I've done some multi-tasking. I've created this card fulfilling two challenges. I love that! First I'll say, this is an image from Stamping Bella, called Ruby and Rose Lulu that I've never inked up before. That was the first challenge, use something you've never used. Secondly, this is the sketch used for Sweet Sunday Sketches Challenge #105.

Another thing that I like about this card is the fact that I used purple, I rarely use it. And the best thing? I used this PP that I've had for, wait for it, 11 years!! I feel so great about using it finally. It's too tempting to be running out and buying the latest and greatest papers. Believe me, all the papers I see on the blogs I regularily read are hard to resist buying. Even the ribbon is from my days as a Stampin'Up! demo, a long time ago!

Have a great Sunday and I hope the weather is co-operating. I'm off to see if I can get some new Joe Fresh workout wear.

Happy Valentine's Day (a few days early)

Hi! So, I wanted to make my sweet nephews a valentine, but I wanted to stay away from "girly" stuff, because I'm sure they would have something to say about me sending them a pink card. They are both hockey guys now. I came up with a completely non-traditional card for them and it came together in a snap! This is Cuppie, he's from "Love is Sweet" at Taylored Expressions. He's mostly paper pieced with some PP from my stash, I think it's from Chatterbox. I got to use my newest Nestie, the Lacey Circle too. I managed to add a little bling in the form of a rhinestone on Cuppie's cherry and a couple more in the corner for good measure. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day whether or not you have a sweetheart!

Fashion in Paper

Hi! This will be a really quick post, but I've been playing with my paper doll die cuts some more and thought I'd show you what you can do with all those little scraps of paper that you have lying around. All I've added is a little bling and voila!
Have a great day!

That's hot Wasabi!

Hehe, oh yeah, she's hot alright. This is the very cute Wasabi Ketto from Stamping Bella. It's actually the first time I've inked her up. I love these images though. I have a few more Ketto's that I'm working on too. This card was inspired by the PP that I've had in my stash for a while now. It has a real Asian feel to it, so I thought it was the perfect match. I really liked the colour combo too. I used some CS from Stampin'Up!; Chocolate Chip, US vanilla and confetti ( I think thats what it's called). I of course, used my Prismacolour pencils and I added some glitz with a black glaze pen in her hair and a black Atyou Spica pen on her dress (my photographic skills sadly don't really show this...). The flower trio (currently sold out) and Dainty Dots Border are die-namics from MFT. The brown glittery brad is from my stash.
It's snowing again today, but I've got some running around to do, so, time to get bundled up and go!
Have a great day!

Shovelling Miles is hard at work!

In honour of the weather that we've been having, I decided to ink up my new "Shovelling Miles" stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie. I love the expression on his face! My sentiment is also from KK, it's "Kimmie's Sassy Sentiments". I used some "Bashful Blue" CS along with US White from SU. The PP is scraps from my stash. I used a rectangle and oval from Nestabilities and the "Threading Water" punch from Fiskars. Also, my new Die-namic "Let it Snowflake" from MFT. I used my Prismacolour Pencils and OMS for the image and added some sparkle with some clear glitter. I found a brad in my stash that worked perfectly for the blue and some ribbon from a gift (thereby making it qualify for this week's challenge on KK!).
Let's hope the snow is done for a while...Enjoy!
