StampTV CSS Alumni Spring Has Sprung

Hello it is time for another StampTV CSS Alumni Blog Hop. This time our theme is Spring Has Sprung.  I don't know about you but it is gorgeous here today!!  We are having the best weather that we have had in 8 months.  You should have arrived here from from the wonderful talented Betty.  If you get lost along the way you can find the complete blog hop list on StampTV.  Here is my card.

I used Birds and Blossoms illustrated by Theresa Momber.  Sorry the photo is a little washed out.  I have the hardest time with yellows and blues.  No matter how many photos I took or times I tried fixing it in photoshop I couldn't get it any better.  I will keep this very short as we are having internet outages in our area today and I don't know how much longer I have before we lose it again.

Your next stop is the fabulously creative Cheri.  Thank you for stopping by.

Still Hot

Hello I hope you week is off to a great start.  It is Monday so that means it is time for a new Greeting Card Challenge at The Outlawz.  This week our challenge is to DIY patterned paper. Check out our sponsor this week.

I used Still Hot from Bugaboo Stamps.  I created the background by sponging pink on white paper and then stamping pink flowers on it.  I did the dame for the "wallpaper" behind the image.  Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team. I am also entering this into Just Us Girls Challenge to use the colors pretty in pink, so saffron, regal rose and certainly celery.

Blue Angel

Hello and Happy Monday!!  I am excited to say that a few weeks back I was ask to be a guest designer for Through The Craftroom Door Challenge.  Of course I said yes!!  I love their challenge and enjoy playing along.  The design team is uber talented and they always offer up such beautiful inspiration.  The challenge is Anything Goes!!  How cool it that?  I want to thank Sandi and the rest for the design team for choosing me for this opportunity to be their guest designer. 

I was provided with a beautiful image Charity Angel from Michelle Perkett Studios to work with.  Oh I did have fun coloring her.
To give her more of an angelic look I desided to add feathers behind her.  I also used a glitter pen to add some sparkle to her halo, wings and details on her dress.  Make sure to check out the design teams gorgeous creations and all the details of the challenge.  I hope you can play along.  Thank you for stopping by.

Learning to Dance In The Rain

Hello I want to start off saying that I am deeply saddened by the explosions today in Boston.  I can't even comprehend  the evil and anger that must harbor in the heart of beings that do these types of crimes.  My thoughts and prayers are going out to all of the victims and their loved ones.

Okay time for something happier.  It is time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Greeting Card Challenge.  This week the challenge is April Showers.  You know what that means?  May flowers are just around the corner and with them much nicer weather.  This week Eureka Stamps is sponsoring our challenge.
I used Dance in the Rain from Unity and colored up this cutie with copics.  Added some glossy accents to the boots and used the sketch I created for last weeks CSS blog hop.  To create the rain drops I used the brush tip of copic marker BG000, it makes prefect little tear drop shapes. This card is also going to be entered into Simon Says Challenge, April Showers and or April Flowers. I hope you can play along with us this week.  Thank you for stopping by.

Happy Hour

Hello I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It sure has been nice having some time off work which has allowed me to catch up on some Spring cleaning and DT commitments.  I have a card that I whipped up this morning for a couple of challenges.
