Puppy Love

Hey there!!! I hope you've all been enjoying the Labour Day weekend. It's so nice for me to get my days off back to back so I'm a happy camper :-)  As soon as I saw this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, I knew I had to play. Of course, I couldn't leave things alone so I made it vertical rather than horizontal.  For the image, I have used the fun image from Stamping Bella called Butch and Mimi. I used a valentine's line from this past year (not sure of the line, sorry).  I kept a sentiment off the card so that I could figure it out when I actually give the card away. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Nothing but a tutu....

I keep looking at this fabulous image from Stamping Bella called Tallulah in her Tutu and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with her until I noticed the pink tulle ribbon sitting on my desk and I thought perfect!!! I wanted to keep my card relatively simple so rather than colouring the entire image I decided to only colour the crown and the balloon, both of which then got doused with Diamond  Stickles!! Gotta love stickles. 

It just goes to show that you don't always have to colour your images and they can still pack a punch :-)

Time to Relax

Hey there!!! Another Friday which means Bellarific Friday!! This week we had a nice simple sketch to work with :-) 

With summer quickly coming to an end... BOO!!! I decided I wanted to use the Uptown Girl called Sandy and her Sombrero. She has been stamped with Archival Black ink and then colored with Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol.  I changed up the sentiment flag a little bit to make it a little easier (In other words, I couldn't get my flag to fold right... LOL). The sentiment comes from a set called Little Umbrella that is currently out of stock. OOPS!!! 

Next week's challenge is "Paper Piecing". Make sure you paper piece something on your card. Perfect for those fabulous Uptown Girls!!! 

Make sure you get your card in to Emily at by Thursday evening at 10EST.

Say Cheese

Hi there!! I had a bit of fun last night playing with some of the journalling sets from Stamping Bella. For some reason, I have had this one brewing in my mind for awhile. For my card, I have used the sets called Blabbity Bla and Life Documented. I placed them on a large stamping block all over the place and then stamped with Archival Black ink. I then added a wooden veneer Polaroid frame to highlight the Say cheese sentiment. I'm kind of wishing I stamped that particular sentiment in a different colour.... Oh well....

Inspired by Ice cream

Another week and another fabulous challenge at Stamping Bella for you guys!!! This week we had an inspiration challenge pic which are always my fave because there are so many things you can do with them. 

I loved the colours from the image and thought it looked youthful so I decided I want to use the Mo \Manning image called "Lacie with her Ice cream" and who doesn't love ice cream in the summer time right? LOL!!! The layout for my card is a recent Sweet Sunday Sketch

Next week's challenge is a sketch!! Make sure you use a current image and get your card into Emily by Thursday at 10 EST.

On the swing

Who doesn't love a good time on a swing? I remember it being one of my fave things to do when I was younger. This week at Stamping Bella, we have a fantastic sketch. Check it out!!! 

For my card, I decided to use the image called Matilda on her Swing. She's been colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to match the DP. 

Next week's challenge is an inspiration pic!!
