sandstashsm

Good Morning All !!! Seems like evening to me. This Old Gal got up with the chickens this morning I just couldn’t sleep so thought what better way to occupy my time than playing in the stamp room.

I used some of my new Sugar Nellie images that I got this week and they are all available over at Funky Kits to buy now so I know you are going to love them so go check them out lol

My first card is for the Sketch N Stash Challenge Blog  where there is a beautiful sketch to follow. My ol so neglected items that i have used are my papers and my sentiment. The papers are from Moxxie I got years ago at my local scrap store and the sentiment is from Alota. I have used the cutie Cow Girl from Sugar Nellie and she has been colored with my copic’s.  I used some of the gorgeous ribbon I got from The Ribbon Girl Oh so delicious and used a ribbon holder in the center of it. I also used some button brads I had in my stash along with some charms I had in my stash. I am also entering this into the challenge over at Paper Sundaes where the challenge is to use a metal charm.

Hello my dear friends!!! How is everyone’s weekend going?? I do hope you all are enjoying it. I have another quiet weekend with my grandson gone to his mom’s so I finished some cards I had been working on this week.

First I have this adorable Mimosa image from Bildmalarna I tell  you these images are so darling. I have colored her with my copic’s and have used some papers from BG. I used the SU ticket punch for the edges of the image and added some spacers and brads. I then had this chipboard wording so thought it looked pretty good. Then this adorable ribbon !!!!!!!! OMG I got my package from The Ribbon Girl that I won and I tell you what folks this ribbon is awesome.  I am so loving it and have used my ribbon on several cards I have made. I am defiantly going to be getting me some more of this gorgeous ribbon that is for sure. I also added a BG button to the front of the bow.

Now my next card is an adorable Lily Of The Valley image. Aren’t these girls such cutie pies?? She has been colored with my copics and I added some glamour dust to her necklace. Again I have used some of the gorgeous ribbon from The Ribbon Girl  this one is the seam binding and it is so yummy my papers are from The Paper Studio . I added some sizzix photo corners and I used the sketch over at Create 4 Fun Challenge Blog. And the theme over at Lily Of The Valley Challenge Blog is to have circles on your card.  Then I also made this for another challenge where there is a color challenge.

I played almost all weekend.

funwithshapessm

Well I am having some major issues trying to upload this post so am trying to type it all up again.

I spent all weekend most playing. Dyllon was at his mom’s and my Design Team package finally came from Sugar Nellie it had gotten lost but finally made it so I wanted to get caught up on some of them so used some challenges to get some inspiration.

This first card was really hard for me to do for I made it for a dear friend of mine that just found out she has 2 months to live. She has cancer and had been fighting it for awhile but now the hope is all gone. So this was really hard to use but I used this gorgeous image from Sugar Nellie  she is called Grace and I colored her with my copic’s. Papers are from Cloud 9  I used a sentiment from Lily Of The Valley and the flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts with the MS branch punch. I used the sketch over at Fun with Shapes Challenge Blog for there gorgeous sketch and Creative Inspiration for there theme of Plain and Simple.

Now this is one of those darling images from Bildmalarna and I won 2 images from the last challenge I was on cloud nine. I so love these cuties. This is Mimo and I have colored him with my copic’s and have used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.  The papers are from MME and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  I used a swirl bling  and a Maya Road pin on the card also. I used the theme over at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog

Now for my last project I used one of the new images from Leanne Ellis over at Sugar Nellie and have used an effects technique from Nancy Curry to make a coaster.  I used all kinds of household goods to make this  coaster. I did use some alcohol inks with it and colored the edges with a Gold Leafing Pen that you can see in the next picture and added some felt under it.

My favorite Colors

lotvsm

Happy Weekend Everyone !! I hope you all are having a great weekend. I have a very busy weekend planned and it is full of play time.
My grandson left for his mom’s this weekend and Friday my long lost package from Sugar Nellie finally arrived. I was so excited to see it and that means I have lots to catch up on so you know where I will be all weekend. lol

 

But before I get to working away I have a card to show you that I had made for Lily Of The Valley Challenge Blog where the theme is to use your Favorite Colors. Well everyone that knows me knows Purple is my favorite color and I really have 2 color combo’s for my color purple so this time I decided to use the Purple and Pink for this darling image from Lily Of The Valley. Aren’t these images so adorable???

She has been colored with my copic’s and I used some papers from SU.  I added some glamour dust to the necklace of this image. I used a MS border punch and the leaf is a die from Magnolia. And the flowers are from the famous Wild Orchid Crafts along with the MS branch. I also believe my ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts too. I added a butterfly to the top of the card from MS and added some flat bling to it.

 

I used the gorgeous sketch from Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog so will also be entering this card there.

Good Day all my dear friends !! Well we are half way through the work week !! Yippee !!

I have a couple of cards to show you today that I made for a few challenges. First up here is this cutie from Bildmalarna and she is called Tossa with flower. She has been colored with my copic’s. Isn’t she just the cutest??? I have used some papers and punches from SU on my card (my favorite color lol) and the wording is a deformed sentiment from Magnolia. Now why in the world would they do this to a stamp is beyond me (so wish I would of noticed it better before I bought it). I used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the branch is from MS. I cut out a heart and added some PennyWise glass beads to it for the challenge this month over at Bildmalarna Blog  is to add a heart to your card. Then my ribbon is from my stash.
