Animals Challenge

Here is my inspiration card for the Come And Get It weekly Challenge.  Funny how this one came together, I had a couple of very nice visitors this past week who brought me the black, blue and pink cs as a gift, yep card makers and crafters too.  My first thought was I'll do a black and white, then I looked at my new card stock and thought aha I'll give these 2 cute little felines some color.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week All Dressed Up Stamps
where you will find a wonderful selection of images.  I'm using Purrrfect Together 
actually it's the same cat I just flipped one and it comes with the sentiment.

I hope you will come join us in this challenge and share your creations with us.

Late one night in June of 2012, Heather Valentin was on the phone with her best friend and was drawing, like many of us do when talking on the phone, and the result, the first Eleanor and Pickles image – Eleanor and Pickles Book of Spells. The first image of Eleanor by herself, was Eleanor Bookworm.

Now, 3 years later, Eleanor and Pickles make up the largest category of images created by Heather Valentin for Lacy Sunshine Stamps. Eleanor and Pickles along with various other character friends, like Tilly the dinosaur, have had many adventures over the past 3 years and Heather continues to draw new images of these delightful characters.

Over the next 2 days, the Lacy Sunshine DT gals will be celebrating Eleanor and Pickles 3rd Anniversary/Birthday with our Through The Years Blog Hop. Please come hop along with us to win some “Pickletastic” prizes and see some Heather’s favorite Eleanor and Pickles images. You can visit Lacy Sunshine Shoppe to view the entire range of images available for purchase.

The hop begins here at Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog then follows the order below. Make sure you stop at every blog on the hop and leave a comment. Don’t forget to leave a comment here too. Our prizes will be announced along with our New Challenge post on June 21st. Hope you enjoy the hop!!

So hop on over and join in the celebration!

Hello and thank you for visiting, this is my DT card for the new Challenge at Lacy Sunshine Challenge that begins today.

It's a fun theme
 this time around Wild about You and being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine.

I'm using the image Eleanor and Pickles Mammoth Ride from the Lacy Sunshine Shoppe and the blue designed paper is from Heather Valentin blue #3 created for this challenge.

I do hope you will come and join us and share your creations with us.

I have to say this is the first Mammoth I've colored in my entire life AND I had to google "mammoth" to see what they look like and what they are.  I found this to be my "challenge".  All is colored with Copic Markers, I embossed the background with my cuttlebug then sponged Distress Tumbled Glass ink on it.  I've added Stickles, Glossy Accents, gems and Distress Stickles.  Sentiments are 2 stamps from my stash.

Paper Piecing

Hello and thank you for visiting, this is my DT card for the new challenge at Come And Get It, we have a fun theme this week it's Paper Piecing.  I haven't done this in such a long time I forgot how soothing it is just sitting and cutting little things out.
