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!
