Sketch Challenge

Good Morning!

This week's challenge over at Creative Stamp Friends was a sketch challenge. I couldn't wait to do this sketch - it had so much versatility and was right up my alley! I knew right away I wanted something bright & colorful for summer. This weekend I'd gone to the Great American Scrapbook Convention and came home with this adorable chicken stamp. I just loved this fluffy gal out getting "cooked" in the sun! I colored her in with copics and had to try to make it look like she was lying her towel down in the sand. My cardstock is all from the Citrus Stack by DCWV and my pp is also DCWV and it's actually from the Nanas Kids stack. Prima flowers & star brads in the center (the orange flowers reminded me of bright sunshines). My sentiment is a SU stamp. Hope you'll come visit our blog and join in!

New Blog!

Good Morning! I have not posted in quite a while. Life has been so hectic. Not that it has slowed down much, but I'm excited about the new blog I am designing for. The Just Christmas and Birthday Cards Blog is gone, I'm afraid to say :( BUT - there's a new blog being run by Andrea (from JCBC) and I think you're gonna love it! Be sure to check us out at:

The first challenge was a color challenge. You need to use the colors brown and pink - such a gorgeous combination! So I pulled out some of my favorite paper from CTMH and a new (to me) Tilda stamp and got to work!

All my papers are CTMH. I colored my image with copics as usual - I love the soft colors. I used Distress Inks and a blender tool to set my background, which was cut with a nesties. The swirl is cut from a Sizzex Die and the flowers are primas with the leaves from a MS punch.

Hope you enjoy this weeks challenge and I look forward to seeing *your* card posted! :)

Have a great one!
