Jumpin on the Bloglovin Train

Just when I was happily going about my business, bloggin away, finally had things figured we've got some changes.  Ugh...Not quite sure about all the changes going on, but from what I understand, come July 1, Google reader will not be used anymore.  Alot of people are jumping on over to Bloglovin and so am I.  I would hate to lose any readers and if you would like to continue following, please click the Bloglovin button at the top left sidebar.  I hope this change is a good one....I'm not too fond of change in certain areas...and anything to do with techy computer stuff is one of those areas! Ah well...they also say that change is good ......right??  I hope so!!  :)

On to my card...I colored the image with copics, used pattern paper for the matt and border punch, used some lace and had a chipboard corner that I painted and then stickled, also used some pearls.  Hope you will come check us out and join in the challenge at Sunshine Mail Foundation.

Sketchy Friday #11

Here is my card for Sketchy Friday Challenge 11.  I used this darling fairy (you can find her HERE) and colored with copics, the papers are from MME Reunion 6x6 pad.  I added some butterflies from MS punch, some gems, stickles and twine.  The sentiment is a Unity rubber stamp and I thought perfect for this card!

Chase the rainbow....

makes me want to go get some Skittles!! :D

Here is a quick card I made for the challenge over at +All That Scraps. I've used the Meoples Lucky Rainbow set and the challenge is paper piecing, which I pieced together the rainbow using Recollections dot paper.  I colored the girl with copics, used some die cut clouds from Miss Kates Cutables and stamped the sentiment with letter stamps from a small set I got at Wal-mart. 

Hope you all have a happy Sunday!

Sunshine Mail Challenge

For this challenge over at Sunshine Mail we are being sponsored by 2 Cute Ink and our theme is birthday.  I used this adorable little kitty with a cupcake and made a little treat bag.  I got the template for the bag online ( I will put up source when I get home) and used some older pattern paper, ribbon, washi, primas, bling and twine. I colored with copics and put two of the smaller lotions from Bath and Body works in there, they fit perfectly!  You could also put some treats in a cute cellophane bag or some smaller sized candy.  I made several of these bags, they are so cute and easy, plus they are perfect to have on hand.  A gift certificate would go nicely too!
A little reminder and gentle nudge to come play with our challenge, it's not just for fun, we really do need your help to send in cards for children in difficult situations, to bring a smile to their sweet little faces.  Please check out the website for more info.

A Wonderful Time

 I made this card specifically for a couple of challenges.  I used the Lil Lolita Ivy image, colored her up with my copics. Used my Unity clock stamp and embossed with white zing powder on the background paper. The black and white stripes are from a stamp that I've had FOREVER, I just stamped several and added for a frame.
I used some paper flowers, primas, brads, bling and stickles.  The stickles are on the flower center that I made by hand (I need to practice on those handmade flowers....what a pain!)  I made the sentiment that would be used for a trip to Disney or a birthday.  Hope you like it! :)
