Well all I could think of was frogs for this challenge but having no digital stamps that were frogs I had to really think and then I found this stamp by Mo's digital pencil of a girl hopping and well Eureka I had an idea. The papers are the june bug paper pad from Basic Grey and is colored with copics. Thanks for looking. This challenge can be found here. http://digitaltuesdaychallenge.blogspot.com/
I love eskimo's and I suggested at Mo's digital pencil for a kid eskimo stamp and I was so suprised when she e-mailed me a week later with this great eskimo digital stamp. I had to move the sentiment from the original sketch because it didn't fit. I thought these clear sparkly flowers looked like snow flakes. The paper is by basic grey their eskimo kisses line. Colored with copics of course. Thanks for looking this challenge can be found here. http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/

On PCP I am a member of the SCACD (Susana's custom art card design) group and this was a sketch for the august challenge. It was also a color challenge which I usually find very hard but I found the colors needed. Colored with copics. The girl and doll are by SCACD and the sentiment is by Daisy bucket. Hey this is my first button that I have used on a card. Got some buttons and string last weekend. The paper that I embossed is by Cordenatations called white wash. It is then lightly sanded. Thanks for looking.

I won this stamp set from Shriley2girls about a month ago. It is a larger stamp so it was hard for me to come up with an interesting layout but I guess it came out OK. The Simon Says challenge gave me a reason to pull this cute stamp set out and play. This challenge can be found here http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ As a little tiny blog candy the first person that leaves a comment saying that they have a young lady headed to college that they would like to send this card to I would like to send it to you as I really don't have a need for this card just made it for the challenge. Thanks for looking.

I really liked this sketch. My husband just got our printer fixed so I found these digital images at Lily-Boo's and thought it would work well with the circle. You get a set of six girl circle images for around $3.50. She is colored with copics. I used my sewing machine again and this is the june bug paper that I have fallen in love with. This challenge can be found here. http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/ Thanks for looking.
Well I used my sewing machine again. I really like the look of the sewing. I was just challenged on threading the machine but now that it is threaded (for now) I am enjoying the sewing on my cards. I got this paper at the CK convention last week. It is called June bug and I LOVE IT. I colored this little owl with copics. I believe it is by Cornish Heritage Farms. I got it in an image swap. You can find this challenge here. http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ Oh and this is the birthday card for my sister who is turning 24 on Saturday:)

This week Cute card Thursday and The pink Elephant both had a summer theme so I combined the two challenges into this cute chantigo card. I got to use my new labels 5 nestabilites and my tag trio two set and some new ribbon which I got all of these things at the CK convention this weekend. After I layed out the stamped image and ribbon the sides were so bare I decided to add these white flowers. They seem to be the right touch without overpowering the card. Cute card Thursday is here http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ and the Pink elephant is here
http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/ Thanks for looking oh and the chantigo is colored with copics.
This is my first entry in this challenge and you know I love the copics. I'm sorry you guys have had to see this My Grafico girl and cat image so much. Maybe some of my Secret Sis's will feel sorry for me:) The heart circle was cut with a fiskars round punch. The girl is stamped (printed) on a nestabilities 5. The flower was handmade by me with chiffon and I hand drew the hearts with a gel pen and of course the girl is colored with copics.

I really enjoy this digital stamp. I have recently used it on another card so sorry about this rerun of image. This is for the sketch Saturday challenge. The nestabilities are my new ones labels 5. I really also like my new white gel pen. This challenge can be found here http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/ Now looking at it I should have added some ribbon on the border but too late now. Thanks for looking.
I usually do not combine challenges but this card took me awhile so I felt OK doing so. The theme at Penny black saturday challenge was stitching Week 63 http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ I rececived a sew mini for my anniversary last year and just haven't got the hang of it but I keep thinking about it and today I was determined to get it out and try again since the Penny black challenge was stitching. This is my first card that I have ever made with sewing. The Simon Says Challenge this week was Christmas in August. I received this stamp last week and was just dying to use it so this challenge was perfect. The Simon Says challenge can be found here http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ This stamp is by Penny black. I added the dots with my new white gel pen that I got yesterday at the CK convention and the image is colored with copics and the color copics that I did not have I used prisma color pencils blended with a copic blender marker. Thanks so much for looking.

This week at midnight madness not only did they have a cool sketch but they have an AWESOME tutorial on how to make these flowers out of chiffon. I saw them and just had to make a trip to Joann's to purchase some fabric. This is just wonderful and I can't wait to start adding them to my projects. This is my first card using the new flowers. The image is by Penny Black and colored with copics and prismacolor. I need more copics:) Secret Sis's are you listening LOL. This tutorial and challenge can be found here. http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/

I saw this free image at My grafico and I just fell in love with it because it so reminds me of my daughter who just loves to hold and squeeze our kitty. Our printer doesn't work right now so one of my good friends at SCS printed this for me I just had to play with this. Our cat is really black and white but I went with the orange. This is my first time using a digital image. Hopefully when my printer is fixed I'll start looking at more. This challenge can be found here. http://digitaltuesdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ The sentiment is by inkadinkado.

I really had a hard time at first with this sketch because I was trying to figure out how to add the one circular part freehand but then I thought hey print it out and make a template (this was at midnight last night) my printer only prints color but I got it to work ok. The image is by bella it is the ivy ketto. Colored with pencils and copics. I also decided to make a matching post it note holder. Enjoy and this challenge can be found here. http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/

This was a recipe challenge... 3 brads, 1 flower and decorative paper. I pulled this domestic challenged diva out of my drawer who I have had a long time but it has never seen ink. I enjoyed coloring with copics. I like how the colors worked together. This challenge can be found here. http://thepinkelephantchallenge.blogspot.com/
Well better late than never. I have been so busy this week that it has almost been a whole week since I upldated my blog or even have stamped. I broke my rule of card making on this card. I usually pick the image and build my card with colors, paper etc from there. I did this one backwards and it took me forever to find the right image. I do not know who this image is by. I bought it several years ago at a stamp convention. Hope you like it. I think it kind of looks asian although that wasn't what I had intended it to look like.

Hey I got to use this stamp again. The theme was summer for this week's PB challenge and this is the stamp I thought of. I also got to use my new martha stewart loop punch. Colored with copics and prisma colors. The only thing I don't like is the little girls shoes are too dark but it was the last thing I colored and I wasn't going to do it over. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking. This challenge can be found here. http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/

This is my first entry in this challenge. I really LOVED this sketch and it was fun to work with. The stamp is by Stampa Rosa so that tells you how long I have had it. Colored with prismacolor pencils. Oh the stamps on the little orange strips that you can barely see are by Inkadinkado. This challenge can be found here http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/
I'm sorry if you don't like the orange and green earthy tones because obviously I am back in that mode. I bought this stamp in Branson a couple months ago and hadn't used it. It is upstairs in the art room but I think it is Impression Obsession. I love owls. This stamp is much larger but I just used a portion and colored with copics.. The owl punch is by Martha Stewart. You can find this challenge here. http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/ Hey also I found a blog where they are giving away 72 copic markers found here http://charmedcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/07/another-blog-candy-with-twist.html
