Stamp Something Challenge / Your Favorite Sketch

Good Morning! This week at Stamp Something they have asked for you to use your favorite sketch, be it one of your own or one you like from another artist. This is one of my own. Here is the sketch I used.

Now here is the card I created from my sketch.

This card was made with Debbie Mumm's Noah's Ark Paper Collection and Bazzill textured papers in a baby blue and buttercup yellow. The image is "Edward Surfing" from Magnolia's Lazy Summer Days Collection. The Image is water colored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and the embellishments are Candy Dots from Pebbles INC. The sentiment is one I purchased from Bugawumps.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!

Secret Crafter Challenge #50 / One For The Girls

I found another blog this evening and I have the perfect little ATC I created a few weeks ago but have yet to get to post it. The Challenge this week at The Secret Crafter is "One For The Girls". So now you see why she is so perfect for this challenge. The image I used is an Elisabeth Bell from SCACD, the image is water color painted with distress inks on an ATC sized illustration board. The sentiment is from Fiskars and she has been over sprayed with perfect pearls and water to give the card a glow.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!!

Two New Blogs for Me "Stamp With Fun" / Autumn and Simon Says Stamp / Stitch it up

Well as promised I am back with another project and this time it is not just a card. I love this time of year, Autumn, Fall or whatever you may call it seems so peaceful for me. I love the changing of the leaves and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. So in celebration of Autumn and the coming of Halloween I have once again pulled out the Gorjuss Girls and created a Candy Canister and Card for a very dear friend of mine and fellow Paper Crafting Buddy Susan from Lonestar Scrapbook Company in Houston. This is also for the Stamp with fun challenge and Simon Says Stamp you can see the stitching on the back side of the canister.
