Hearts and Whiskers

I found for me at least a new online stamp/digi store with a lot of beautiful images, to me so many mini art pieces all in one place.  This one is called Hearts and Whiskers from The Sweet Pea Stamp Store by Regan Kubecek .  I'm entering her into the One Sweet Pea challenge  - Scream for Green.

The digis is colored with Copics, die cuts from Memory Box, butterfly from EK Success punch, Glossy Accents, a few gems, the sentiment is from my stash of unmounts.

A Pressing Matter

This is Madye Pressing Matters, she is a Lacy Sunshine digi, I'm in love or addicted to these charming images, I did her on one of "THOSE" days that we all have.  I was refilling my Copics the refill bottle was stuck, then suddenly open all over me a nice reddish brown.  Then I overfilled a few of my Copics, I'd have an image 3/4 colored and all of a sudden there would come out a big blog of ink from the overfilled marker, usually in the face area.  Now I figure I'll just color for the heck of it getting some of the over fill out, well, none came. 

I just chose what I thought to be tacky colors after all it's house work let's make it bright at least putting little or no thought into this one, lo and behold I ended up liking her and look - no blobs.

I'm entering her into the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog - Anything Goes.  You might want to visit the online store Lacy Sunshine A Crafter's Candy Shoppe so many charming images to choose from, or go to their blog for some inspiration A Crafter's Delight .

She is colored with Copics which I'm sure you know if you read the above, a bit of Glossy Accents and glitter, layered to some embossed cs with my Cuttlebug.

Fancy Sun Bonnet

This week the challenge at Come And Get It is St Patrick's Day and is being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and what a very wide variety to choose from is what you will find by visiting their online store.  I chose to use Fancy SB St Pats Day, she is one of their adorable sun bonnet kids.
I paper pieced Fancy SB and the shamrocks for layers using 3D tape so she would stand out.  Then sponged in the background with Distress inks, (blue, pink, yellow) made the frame with Spellbinders die cut, the design paper is from Elka Romero, fence and grass are die cuts from Memory Box.   The butterfly that I think is so pretty is one a friend sent to me, added some Glossy Accents and a few gems.

Ribbon and a Bow

The theme this week at the Come And Get It challenge is Ribbon and Bows and I believe it will be hosted by Meighan, sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.  They do have lots of really nice images over there so well worth visiting and I hope you'll come join the challenge as well.

For this card I choose to use Peony Flower Pot Pretty from Lacy Sunshine, colored with copics, layered, some Glossy Accents on her eyes, the bow and flowers.  On the flower pot I covered with my Pearlen Pen  by Viva to give it some texture, a couple of die cuts and of course some ribbon, a bow and a very glittered butterfly with Crystal Glitter Ritz.

A Friend Is

These little darlings are from Mo's Digital Pencil named "A Friend is......." A cute sentiment comes with it :  A friend is someone who knows you and loves your anyway", I forgot to put it on the upper left of my card.  This is why I have a birdcage there as it was looking kind of bare and the bird cage came to mind.  Oh well just another senior moment for me I guess.

Now I'm off to enter it into the Bronte and Bella's challenge Anything goes with a Mo's image.

Colored with Copics, a little Glossy Accents here and there, embossed on my Cuttlebug, die cuts are from Memory box and a little pearl to top it off.

The Dark Side

This is Amelia Curiosity and this is my first time playing with a curiosity from Lacy Sunshine a Crafter's Candy Shoppe. Heather (artist and leader of the group) was kind enough to let the group choose a  free digi  for the contest at  Lacy Sunshine a Crafter's Delight FB group.  I'm not sure what I think of this card as usually I go for "cute" rather than the "dark side" but I had to at least give it a try and I did enjoy coloring her.  You can also visit the Lacy Sunshine blog here and the Lacy Sunshine Gang on FB

There are so many adorable, different characters in her shop it really is worth visiting.

Colored with Copics, die cut from MFT, sentiment is from a Tim Holtz stamp.

Two of my friends actually liked this card so I made a second so each could have one but I can't do 2 identical cards so wanted the comparison on here and here it be.

I found out I could enter twice so this is my second entry in the contest at Lacy Sunshine a Crafter's Delight FB

Sunny Florals

This week Shell is hosting the challenge at Come And Get It and she has chosen flowers to be the theme this week.  With the cold we've all had it'll be nice to see some nice colorful flowers hoping they will give us the thought of  a little warmth.
