Stampavie Cutie

I've had this stamp forever and struggled for some reason figuring how I wanted to color it.  Pretty happy although I think I might have something a little different in mind! 
Colored with Copics, added Stickles to the flowers.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid, added some pearls.  The paper again was a small piece from my "stash" will be trying to use those scraps up forever I think!  We finally have some sun today after about two weeks of rain it's so nice.  Happy Wednesday this is a really looooong week so far.  I'm entering this card in Spoonful of Sugar's "Things With Wings" challenge and the Paper Shelter's "Anything Goes" challenge. Hugs

Bugaboo Digi

I just love these little bonnet girls they are so cute.
I was happy with the color combo, colored with Copics.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I'm still trying to use my stash of bits and pieces of paper and had just enough of this paper to do this card.  I'm determined to use up my pile of "pieces" lol.  I keep telling myself I don't need anymore paper but then new patterns come out and I'm doomed.  Hope everyone had a good weekend, I'm hoping we will eventually have nice weather again it's been almost two weeks of clouds and rain here.  I'm already whining about going to work tomorrow!  Hugs!

Teddy Bo Digi

This is the first digi I have bought from Teddy Bo isn't he cute?  So I made the card was happy with the coloring and paper choice (Close To My Heart) and then I put the ribbon on and I thought oh my gosh I just ruined this card!  I hated it.  So I dug through my buttons and decided to throw some on there figured it couldn't look any worse and I have to say I think the buttons totally saved it and I was happy with the end result.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend, it's miserable and rainy here but I'm lounging on the couch watching the race.
Thanks for stopping by!!

First Magnolia Stamp!

I hadn't bought any of these...ever...wasn't sure I was crazy about the "mouthless" thing lol.  When I took Suzanne Dean's class last month one of the images she had us use was a Magnolia and I realized I really like them so I bought just one from my LSS Inspiration Station and here she is
I really didn't want to like these because I don't need to "need" another line of stamps and there are so many of these!  Colored with Copics, these flowers are Prima's that I found on clearance at Michael's.  I missed my mail carrier today who was trying to deliver my newest box of goodies from Wild Orchid and now I have to wait till Monday to go to the Post Office argggghhhh!!  Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Penny Black Birthday Card

I made this card for a co-worker for his wife.
Not a great pic I took it last night in the basement!  I'm entering this in two challenges both using distressing, I don't distress much but I did the image and then put some Close To My Heart ink on the edges, I also did the pattern paper and the outside purple piece.  Glad it's Friday!!!

Wild Orchid Challenge

I made this card using a new Wee Suzi digi, they are the most adorable images!  The challenge was white plus two colors with a twist.  I'm hoping this card was what they were looking for!  Colored with Copics.  I've been using the Cryogen paper getting better at it, I was applying to much pressure (used to different paper) and it was bleeding around the edges but I think I have it under control!  Background paper was a half a sheet I had left no idea whose it is but I'm sad I don't have more!
Added two Wild Orchid roses and some pretty lace ribbon from Michael's.  Sorry the picture is kinda crummy I don't have a good place to take pics in this house!  No good light and the sun is setting here.  Need a good lightbox.  Hope everyone is having a good week almost Friday!

High Hopes "Anything Goes" Challenge

I love this little girl, I can't wait for warmer weather!  Everytime I think it's going to stay warm for a bit we get another round of ugly, rainy, cold weather.  Oh well pretty soon I will be complaining I am too hot!!
I wasn't sure about the red/green combo not one I use often but I really like how it came out.  Colored with Copics, added some Prima flowers and ribbon.  Just placed another order from Wild Orchid can't wait till those arrive!  Happy Wednesday everyone!
