The Stamping Boutique "Inspiration" Challenge

We were asked to make our cards based on inspiration from this picture:
I can't grow a plant or a flower to save my life but I sure appreciate everyone else's gorgeous lawns!  Here is my card:

This is one of my favorite images - it can be used for so many different types of cards.  Colored with Copics.  Stop in and join us for our latest challenge.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I'm exhausted today and can't wait to go to bed!!

Bright & Sunny

This cutie is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.  Colored with Copics, the flowers are all from Wild Orchid.  I've watched a marathon of Law & Order Criminal Intent while crafting today so many episodes I've never seen!
I'm entering this is the CMC Copic Challenge "Yellows".  Happy Friday!

Lili of The Valley

This is an older Lili stamp but so cute!  Colored with Copics, flowers are all from Wild Orchid.  I'm entering this in Lili of the Valley's Diamonds & Pearls challenge and Wild Orchid's Spring Is In The Air challenge.
I took today off and the weather is awesome!  I'm enjoying my craft room with the windows open!

The Stamping Boutique Anything Goes (With A Twist!!)

The latest challenge is up at the Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog!  This week it is "Anything Goes" - for the design team we all had to use the same image.  Great seeing how everyone works with their own style.  Here is mine:
The paper I think I've held on to in my stash for years but I thought it was a perfect bright, cheery DP to use.  Colored with Copics.  I finally feel like the house is becoming a house again.  Just about done unpacking and starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I haven't spent hardly any time in my new craft room which is starting to stress me out.  I'm off with my daughter on Friday so I'm hoping to get some craft time in!  Hope everyone is having a good week.

The Stamping Boutique Challenge

Distress it!!!  That's right...wrinkle it, scuff it, tear it - distress it!  I do a lot of distressing when I do scrapbook layouts but rarely do it on cards so this was fun.  Check out the latest Stamping Boutique challenge here
As you can tell I'm a huge fan of the AJ and Audrey images - I think they are just the cutest.  Colored with Copics, this is actually the first card I've made in my new craft room!!  We are finally starting to get settled, got some pictures up on the wall which is nice and curtains in most rooms.  What a pain moving is lol!  Hope everyone is having a good week.

Stamping Boutique Pastel Challenge

So we are in the new house!!  House is still a disaster but I'm working on my craft room today (most important room of the house right?).  I was without computer for five days and it was killing me I missed so much.  The Stamping Boutique's latest challange is Pastels.  Used this cutie digi and colored with Copics.
 Paper is Close To My Heart, flowers Wild Orchid.  Hope everyone is having a good week.  I had a few days off but have to go back tomorrow would rather stay home and work on my room!
