A pocket full of Sunshine

Hi Everyone!

Did you have a nice weekend? I hope you all are getting some warmer weather :) Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Peachy Keen Challenge 13-17 :: Sketch Challenge.  When I first saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I used the circles as inspiration and used three images instead. The pocket, the sun, & the clouds. Here is what I came up with. 
I used the PKSC-14 for the face on the sun (cac). The pocket is actually a card liner from the Wild Card Cartridge.

Make a Wish!

Hi Everyone!

Just popping in to enter a card in a few challenges.  Peachy Keen Challenge 13-16 :: Anything Goes. So much fun inspiration! I chose to use the new release PKSC -16. This release had a great variety of images and faces.

I stamped the jar on water color paper and then cut it out.  Next I stamped the two butterflies and then colored with a mix of copics and color pencils. Lastly, I added stickles.

I wanted to keep it really simple.  I added a cute sticker I found in my overflowing sticker drawer and there you have it!

Circles, Buttons, & Scraps

Hi There!

I don't know about you but my scrap files (yes I file them - in color order) are busting at the seams literally.  I had to buy a new file holder this week for my blues. So I just had to figure something out.  So here is what I came up with. What do you think?
I used a few challenges for inspiration. I just pulled out as many blue patterns that looked okay together and started die cutting.  I used the MCT circle die and the MCT button die. 

I then added some twine from My craft spot & Ribbon from LSP. I ended up making 15 cards with various colors but I think this one turn out best :) and... I can snap the file folder now :)

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Hi Everyone!

How was your week? We had such a great time on our little getaway, we had beautiful weather and lots to see! It has been a little hard to get back in the swing of things :) 
I did put off the laundry and house cleaning to make a card for the Peachy challenge. This week its a photo inspiration challenge. I chose to use the colors and the flower as my inspiration.
I used the New release PKSC-16 for those pretty flowers and used a mix of copics and colored pencils.

Here is the Photo - such a pretty palette

The sentiment "Happy" & "Joy" is from PKSC-15

Over the Moon

Hi Everyone!
I'm so behind this week. We have had so much to do this week. Class day, Field trip, Jog-a-thon, family picnic - boy they sure packed it all in one week!
Did you all see the challenge over at Peachy keen stamps  it's a fun one! Make a 3D object with a baby theme.  I think I mentioned I have a couple friends that are expecting so this little gift bag will come in handy very soon.
 Wow, I got out the ol' paper crimper for this project :) I also made a  bead charm and added it to the bow.
I used PKSC-14 for the moon and Sentiment.  The clouds and flag die are Lil inker designs dies. The buttons are MCT and the twine is Liz's paper loft.

I filled this with a gift card and just crimped the top and bottom. So easy and I LOVE how this little bag turned out!
Hope you all have a GREAT day!
