You Are My Sunshine

I got to play with a LittleDarling stamp today.  It is beginning to be summer here in Arizona and its time to get things planted.  I thought this little sweet girl would be perfect on a card.  I added the sentiment  "you are my sunshine" from the Everyday Sentiment set to finish her off.  I hope summer is right around the corner for you too!

You can find her in the store HERE

You Taught Me to Bloom

Mothers Day is coming and I know we all have had a mother even if you think you have hatched from an egg (like me).  Whether its biological, or adopted or just someone who took you under their wing, you have had that one special someone who has been there to give you insight throughout your life.  The person that gives you advice of which many times you ignore, only later to go back and tell them that they were right.  You know what I am talking about don't you?!  Now is the time to thank them!

I have used this new digital release from Power Poppy to create this card.  It has some wonderful sentiments too.  You can find it through the links below.

Oh, Hello

I don't know why I rarely color Saturated Canary images because they are soon amazing, probably because I have so many images to color up already.  This is an absolutely stunning stamp to color and you can buy her through LittDarlingRubberStamps.  I decided to play a little with Zoe's No Line Stamping technique that she discovered eons ago.  I love the softer look it gives an image.  For this stamp I just stamped it two different times and colored the "second generation" image.

I am So Lucky

Do you feel lucky?  I know I do.  It is so much fun entering the challenges and getting such amazing inspiration from the design team and the queen herself, Zoe.  I am apart of such an amazing talented group I am beside myself and blessed.  This month we all get to play with "coloring hair" challenge and Zoe has some amazing images to practice on.  I chose one of the new Meadow Girls that were recently released.  Her name is Lucky Tara and can be found HERE.


 For this image I used the BV's for her hair instead of the C's to resemble black hair.  I think it matches the image style better.  Here are all the Copics I used to create this little cutie-patootie, Lucky Tara below.

Ride, Baby Ride!

I challenged myself to a clean and simple card this week.  Of course I had to try layering it on colored paper but in the end decided to stick with my personal challenge and put it on a white card base.  I thought this image from All Dressed Up fit my mood.  It is starting to feel like spring and a bike ride is in my future.  Now just so you know I do not like to ride bikes but the dear husband decided that we should start getting out.  Have I mentioned I am 45 and have no desire to ride a bike?  Well he is not being persuaded and got us bikes...mine has no basket or ring-a-ding-ding bell thank goodness.  We will see who falls off first.  Anyway I hope you enjoy this cheery image from AllDressedUp and can have fun coloring clean and simple too!

Join in on some fun and win yourself an image by joining in on our challenge this month.  Anything Goes and all you have to do is use a ADU image.  you can even go grab a free one.  All the details are HERE on the challenge blog!
