Maki a Wish

   I'm joining in on the sketch challenge over at Sugar Pea Designs, one big plus of doing a 30 day color challenge is that I've got a bunch of images all ready to put on a card and using a sketch just makes it that much easier!!

I used the Rice Rice Baby stamp set from Sugar Pea and this time used distress ink and watercolored the image, also stenciled the background, the orange enamel dots are NUVO Crystal Drops and are SO much fun to play with.

Well, I hope you like my card, I loved making it and that stamp set is so cute.....also, I just adore penguins!

You make life MAGICAL!

I played with another sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things and used images from the Magical Dragons stamp set.  I colored with my copics, the embossing cloud background is colored with copics as well and is done using an embossing folder from Darice.  

I just love dragons and have since I was a young girl, I love anything in the fantasy genre and what could be more magical than sitting in the clouds with a dragon!! :)

Another book....


I am a sucker for any images that include readers or books and have been gathering them up whenever I can find them.  This is the latest book/reading themed image from Lisa Bloobel, you can find her ETSY shop HERE.  If you are looking for different, unique and quirky, that's a great place to start! 

I made myself another bookmark, colored with copics and created the fun background with copics and colorless blender, added some fun bright pattern paper, some tulle and twine and laminated it for sturdiness.  

.
A fun little side note...I found this floral frog when I was cleaning out some of my mom's things, she passed about a year ago and worked as a florist in my grandmothers shop for many years. I had seen others use similar items to prop their cards and had wanted one but never got around to finding out where to order them or even what they were called.....so it was a happy moment for me when I found this among her things!

You're my Penguin

Whew, it's been awhile and I actually felt like making a card today....lately my mojo has been gone and I don't feel like doing too much of anything crafty.  I've been coloring, but that's about it.  Today I was browsing for some inspiration and came across an easy sketch over at My Favorite Things and since I've got several new stamp sets from MFT, I decided to play.

The stamp set is Penguins in Paradise and this is the sketch.
                                                

and my card.  I colored with copics, the pattern paper is all from the Doodlebug Fun in the Sun pack, the sun and clouds are dies from Taylored Expressions.  I cut out a white oval and tore it to make the sand using Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain distress ink for color, the coconut is the Nuvo crystal drops in Walnut.

Chip n Dale

No.....not Chippendales as in the extremely hot male dancers.....  I'm talking Disney's Chip and Dale!  BIG DIFFERENCE!! ;)

It's been about a year since I took my kids to Disney, Ash wanted to mommy/daughter trip for her high school graduation and this was about a year later but we finally made it and we grabbed my son Jordan to go with as well.

This morning Ash and I wanted to search for characters to get as many pics as we could and these guys certainly were characters....they were so very funny and probably the best ones as far as personality!!


Everything I used was from Echo Park's Magical Kingdom kit which I purchased from Stamps Alive, forgive the crappy picture, just trying to get it done!  I also used the sketch from PageMaps July 2012. :)
