Delightfully cute . . .

This is a darling image from My Besties, which I've colored with my usual prisma pencils and gamsol. As you can tell, I love my diecuts, as I've cut the foliage border, butterflies and frame.

Still summer and ice cream . . .

If there's ice cream left, then it's STILL summertime, right, and never settle on just ONE scoop - haha. Actually,I think ice cream is a year-round treat. This sweet little miss comes from Digi Doodle Studios, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, adding stickles to the ice cream and her glasses for a bit of glitz. Since I couldn't decide on my main colors, I just went with a rainbow array. The stars were die cut and then mounted with foam tape for dimension, and the gems added to complete my card. Now, you're excused to go get your own double dip (or more)! I've entered these challenges: Colour Crazy - AG; Colorful Options - rainbow; Crafty Catz - AG; Digi Choosday - AG; Digi Doodle Studios - add metal/sparkle; Double Trouble - 3-2-1 recipe; Pammie's Inky Pinkies - AG; Rabisco - AG

Bubbles galore . . .

I was delighted to be asked to be a guest designer this month for My Besties Brasil, and this was the bubbly image I chose to work with. She's been colored with prisma pencils, and stardust stickles added to the bubbles for some glitz. You'll notice a lacy doily tucked behind my framed image, then flowers, diecut foliage, butterflies and a bow to top it off and there you have it. Hope she brings on a smile.

I couldn't resist making this little piglet into a happy card. All it took was a bit of layering, a diecut fence, flowers with gold gem centers, a bow, and a pun to sum it all up -- haha.

These are the challenges I've entered: Colorful Options - beautiful brown; Double Trouble - AG + pig + pun; Polkadoodles - AG; Rabisco - AG; Through the Purple Haze - use a ribbon/bow

Rise and shine . . . or not

It was time to dust off a couple of my old wooden stamps (Art Impressions)to create this card. I colored with prisma pencils, and sponged the blue sky background. A bit of layering, and the addition of some die cut clouds and this is ready to head on to the Bring Smiles To Seniors charity, to make a nursing home resident happy.
