Sending Love Your Way

Hello! It's Made In Minutes Monday at MyCreativeTime. I used the Cartoon Cloud Background on my card base and on the heart. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies for my card base and panel. I used the Stitched Sweethearts And XOXO dies for the heart. I colored the birdie from the Tweet Me set and cut him out with the Tweet Me Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Tweet Me set on one of the banners from the Trio Stitched Banner Dies

Happy Easter

Hello, and happy Sunday to ya! I hope you've had a nice weekend. I colored this little cutie from the Easter Egg Words And Bunnies set by PeachyKeenStamps with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I did a soft wash of color behind him with distress inks and water. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies and the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies from MyCreativeTime for the panel. It's hard to see, but I used the Lattice Background stamp from PeachyKeenStamps on the card base.  The greeting is from the Hello Chickie set from MyCreativeTime

Hello Chickie

Hiya! I played with the adorable Sweetie Pie Peepers set from PeachyKeenStamps again today. Just too stinkin' cute! I colored the little chickie with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I added a soft wash of color for the scene with distress inks and water. I stamped the Picnic Tablecloth background from PeachyKeenStamps with Cotton Candy SimonSaysStamp ink. I swear it's pink in real life. The greeting is from the Hello Chickie set from MyCreativeTime. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More and Stitched Oval Dies from MyCreativeTime

I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday.

You make my heart sing

Hello! Happy Friday to you! I spent some time this afternoon coloring these sweet images from the adorable Sweetie Pie Peepers set by PeachyKeenStamps. I first stamped the little girl, and then stamped her again on masking paper. I covered her up, and stamped the Mama over her. This way it looks like Mama is snuggling her. :) When you want and image to be in front when masking, you stamp it first. The way I remember is Front First. :) Anyhoo, I colored them with Prismacolor colored pencils. I added a soft wash of color for the scene with distress ink and water. The greeting is from the Tweet Me set by MyCreativeTime

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Always thinking of Mew

Hiya and happy Wednesday! I made this card today to play along in the MyFavoriteThings Sketch Challenge. I used the adorable I Knead You set from MyFavoriteThings along with the Coordinating Dies. I colored kitty with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I used the little rounded square from the 4x4 Journal Die & More set from MyCreativeTime. I stamped the sky on it with the Cartoon Cloud Background from MyCreativeTime. I used mint julep Hero Arts shadow ink for the sky, and lime green shadow ink for the grass. For the greeting I used the "mew" from the I Knead You set and the "always thinking of" is from the new Tweet Me set from MyCreativeTime. The greeting is on the banner from the Vintage Labels set from MyCreativeTime. I embossed the bottom of the panel with a dots folder, and added two embossed lines with my scoring board at the top. I stamped the Candy Stripe Background from PeachyKeenStamps with mint julep ink...btw this stamp is one off my all time faves and is only 7 bucks!!! Better get it before it's gone! :)

I hope you're having a relaxing evening.

Congratulations

Hello! I made this card to play along in the MyFavoriteThings Color Challenge. Here it is...
My brother and his family recently got a new puppy. They named him Jax. I think it's so cool that you can add a name to the bone on the doghouse from the You Make My Tail Wag set from MyFavoriteThings. Anyhoo, I colored all my elements with Prismacolor colored pencils. That sweet doggy actually has his leg lifted up {about to do his business} LOL. But I altered my stamped image by cutting that lifted leg off, and sticking it behind the front leg. :) I added glossy accents to his nose, and to the bone on the doghouse. I inked my scene with distress inks. I promise my colors are really the challenge colors. Cruddy photo. ;) 

I hope my bro and his family like this card to welcome their new puppy. :)
