HMFMC #173 Anything Goes

Happy Monday Morning - I'm here today with a card for House Mouse & Friends Challenge found here.
Our fabulous team mate Lorraine picked our theme as Anything Goes which makes it very easy to come up with a card for this one.  No pressures at all.  Here is my card.
I've had this stamp titled "Bunny Bath" for a while but I haven't been doing much coloring of late so I could not wait to get started coloring this one up.  It is colored with Copics and I made a line/dotted backdrop for it. It is cut out with SB dies as you can see. The paper is from a long time retired SU paper pack.  My sentiment is from Gina K Designs and the corner treatments were made with a punch by SU.  The flowers were punched out a little punch that has no name on it.  A couple of pearl drops in the center of the flowers and I called it a day.
Won't you stop by and join in on the fun over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. We'd love to see your cards or projects.

OWH Challenge Sketch #230

Good Monday Afternoon.  Hope you are all having a fantastic day.  Experiencing another perfect day here in the Northeast.  I'm here today with my entry for the OWH Sketch challenge found here.

As you can see I deviated from the sketch a bit, but what else is new for me?  All the papers are from the SU! Sweet Sorbet packet.  The sentiment is from a Cuttlebug die and the gems are from Recollections.  This was a pretty simple and quick sketch  for me and I loved working with it.   
That will do it for me for today.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon .

Stay Cool

Good Wednesday morning.  It is suppose to be very hot and humid here today so I thought I'd make a card to depict our weather.    

  I used a pre-colored image from Deedee Anderson that you can find here at Deedee's Digis.    This amazing set comes with both pre colored and lined versions of a couple of darling images as well as sentiments and digi papers.  I needed to make quick card so I just printed out both the image and sentiment mounted them on black card stock and b/g paper from my stash, punched the bottom with a MS punch and added a few gems from Pizzazz Aplenty .  Nice, quick and easy!!!!!  Thanks for your visit. I always appreciate the company.  Wishing you a great day.  See you soon.

Hi there, wow two posts in two days.  I'm on a roll!!!!!  I wanted to share a card I made for the June ODBD Challenge found here.  They have asked for cards using punches or dies.

I used a Sizzix heart die twice and layered one one top of the other. As you can see I did emboss the green heart with a Heart folder.   The paper was from my stash and the sentiment is by Studio G that I picked up at Michaels a few years ago.  I just added some back gems and a rhinestone and I was done.
I love these kinds of cards that I can get done quickly.  I see multiples of this one coming in the future.
Thanks for taking a peek here in my little corner of the world and I'm wishing you a wonderful day.  Hopefully see you soon.

OWH Sketch #229

I have been MIA for a while but I finally got a chance to make a card for this week's sketch challenge over at OWH.  Here is my card.

The flower stamps and the punches are from SU! and the background paper is from The Christmas Tree Shop.  I did a very simple coloring job with Copics.  The sentiment, which I divided, is by Simply Stamped.  I've had this stamp for probably 5 years and only used it one other time before today.  I chomped the top corner and I was done.  I liked working with this sketch very much so I think I'll be using it often.   Wishing you a very nice week ahead and I would like to thank you for taking the time from your day to stop by for a visit.  Hopefully I'll get back into making some cards soon.

Deedee's DOM challenge

Good Monday Morning.  I'm here with a quick post to let you know that Deedee's Digi Of The Month Challenge for June begins today.  If you played along last month your have already received this set and if not no need to worry you can buy into this progressive challenge for a tiny bit of money this month.  I'm posting this card I made, but I plan on making another one during the week because I just adore this set.

This was so quick and easy to put together because I used the pre-colored image from the "Life's A Beach" set.  You've got to check this out, it is just fabulous.  My printer is acting up on me this week, co I had to add a bit of color because everything I print is coming out dull and we could not have this pretty little lady looking dull now could we?  The sentiment is also from the same set.  My paper is from my stash and I just punched a piece of card stock with the Word Window punch from SU! and cut it in half and adhered three stickers to each one and I was done.   Won't you stop by and join us?  We'd love to have you.

Thanks for stopping by today -  I'll be back later on today or tomorrow.  Whatever you have planned for today, I hope you enjoy.

W2SB - Oh, The Places You'll Go

Good Sunday Morning to all of you.  It promises to be a beautiful day today here in southeast Ma.
I'm here this morning with my card for the Words 2 Scrap By #6 Challenge  titled "Oh, The Place You'll Go"! which is the titled of one of Dr. Seuss's books.
I picked this new pre-colored image and sentiment by DeeDee Anderson  at Deedee's Digis, my papers are retired from SU!  I sponged the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.   It was a nice quick card to put together.    It picked this image  because Hubby and I just took our first little vacation of the summer and we went camping, so I thought this was perfect for this challenge. The Dr. Seuss book's focus is on the journey and maybe some problems that may occur along the journey, which is fine.   Hubby and I are now both retired so we purchased a motor home  (our new beginning) to travel to different parts of this beautiful country so I have to admit we did not camp in a tent this time. We love tent camping and have done it for years but our bones are getting a bit too old for that so we upgraded.  LOL
Our first journey was one pretty close to home (Hubby called it our shake down cruise) to see what we may have forgotten or needed.  I have to tell you that I only forgot two kitchen items, a whisk and a folding stool, both of which we did fine without.   I will take a minute and tell you I was quite proud of myself this time, usually I forget tons of things, which always makes life interesting for us and gives us something to laugh about.  I really enjoyed the theme for this challenge and ask that any of you visiting me today head on over to W2SB to support Bobbi & Sybrina and maybe enter a card there.  You won't be sorry, I promise.    Thanks for popping in here and wishing you all a fabulous day.
