Hi Friend/ Amy R's Friday Sketch #55

Hi there! Today i have a card i made for Amy R's Friday sketch #55. I used my Tilda with tag stamp that i purchased awhile back and hadn't inked yet. Once i got her home i thought I have no sentiment small enough to fit in her tag and my own handwriting doesn't begin to rate, so I was bummed and she just sat in my drawer. Then yesterday while i was making my card for my last post i used Amy's Friends Sentiments from C.C. Designs and thought it was small enough to work here too -and it did!! This is why i love Amy's sentiment stamps! :0) I hope you enjoy this little cutie! Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting. :0)

I was tagged by my Sweet Blog buddie Mandy. I am supposed to select the 4th photo in my 4th folder, so here it is! I tried my hand at growing these beautiful roses in my yard. I just had to take a picture because where we live the wind blows so hard that one day my rose bush looks like this and the next they are gone!!!

Life's a Jungle/ Amy's Friday Sketch #54

Hi Again, Today i have my interpretation of Amy R's Friday sketch #54. This weekend was the start of my girls Spring Break so we took them out of town for a mini vacation and one of the stops was the Phoenix Zoo. of course i had to find an appropriate paper packet to scrapbook their pictures so i found one from Die Cuts With a View on sale and boy is there ALOT of paper!! so that pretty much decided the theme for this sketch. I used Close to My Hearts Life's a Jungle acrylic stamp set. I stamped the lion twice and cut the mane from one and pop dotted it to the other lion image for more dimension. Hmm i may just cut off the other side of the card and make this a panel for one of my scrapbook pages. My little lion was colored with copic markers that my Sweetheart of a husband bought me this weekend at the stamp expo for my birthday. He bought me 5 sets of copic markers. I am soooo EXCITED!! I've never used them except for flesh tones so i will have so much fun practicing. Well Thank you for visiting, and i hope you all have a Wonderful Day!! :0)

Amy's Friday sketch #53

Hi there Everyone!! Today's card was made for Amy R's Friday sketch #53. Can you believe it, i actually left her sketch the way it was meant to be!! I took this picture outside to show all the sparkle on the butterfly. Don't know if that was a good thing or not, but here it is. I stamped my butterfly and then used the Art Glittering System glue and Glitter and glittered the whole butterfly in different colors. Pretty time consuming but a lot of fun and if your a sparkle lover you will LOVE the end result. Thanks so much for taking a look! Have a GREAT day!! :0)

Friday Sketcher's #42

Hi there! Today's card is for Friday Sketchers #42 sketch. This sketch was made by Murmur of France. I had alot of fun with this sketch. The image i used is Pink Cat Studio's Enchanted Lily. As usual i can never leave the sketch the way it was intended and this one was no different, I had to flip it on it's side to fit my Lily image. My dp is from Basic Grey, I used my Swiss Dots and D'vine Swirls embossing folders for my mats. I colored Lily's wings and antenae with the stardust glitter pen and colored in the lady bug's circles with a black glaze pen. Well, that's it for today, I'm off to go see my daughter play in a basketball tournament. Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Have a Wonderful weekend. :0)

AmyR's Friday Sketch #51-Thanks for being you

Good Morning! Here she is again! the cutie patootie garden fairy from Two Scoops Rice Designs. I wanted to use this Digi image again so When i saw AmyR's Friday sketch #51 i thought they would pair up great. Of course, I can never leave well enough alone and had to turn the sketch on it's side to fit my fairy image. I also couldn't stand to put my emporium creative basics paper from Ctmh away and had to use it again for this sketch. I added lots of glitter for lots n lots of flash. It looks so much better IRL though. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder to give my brown mat texture. I used the scallop and circle punch from SU! to mat my sentiment. Well i thank you for stopping by and visiting. Thanks so Much!! Have a SUPER Day!!
