The Pink Elephant Challenge #29

This week The Pink Elephant challenge #29 was a great sketch and I happen to have some time to play along!

I had so much fun with this card...I got to use some new goodies. I used my Copic markers for the first time and all I can say is OMG! ...These little markers are addicting! Now I want more stamp sets that have images that can be colored. This could get very expensive!! I did use a new stamp set from Papertrey Ink that was super fun to color. The polka dots are heat embossed.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies (all Papertrey Ink unless otherwise indicated)
Cardstock: Rustic Cream, Scarlet Jewel
stamps: Autumn Abundance, Polka Dot Basics
Ink: Scarlet Jewel, Versamark
Other: Scarlet Jewel button, button twine, Nestabilities-Label 3, Clear embossing powder, Copic markers

Avery's new 'do!

I'm having trouble with my Facebook...all of the sudden I can't comment or upload photos. Ugh!! I hate computers! Anyway, Avery got her hair all cut off and I couldn't be more excited! She is not a morning girl and getting the knots brushed out of her hair before school was no easy task! So, here she is...4" of hair lighter:

How cute is she?? Love this girl!

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15

Here is my card for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15:

I loved the colors she choose for this challenge! They remind me of sherbet ice cream. Yum! I bought the Little Lady stamp set from Papertrey Ink to make Avery's birthday invites/thank you's for her birthday last year and haven't touched it since! I stamped the body in Vintage Cream ink on Melon Berry cardstock and then after it dried, stamped the spots with Melon Berry ink on top. I scored the ladybug down the center of the wings and bent them down and adhered it with foam dimensionals. I stamped the antenae directly on the Bitty Box paper so I didn't have to cut them out.
Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: (all Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Vintage Cream, Melon Berry
PP: Bitty Box
Stamps: Little Lady, Pond Life (sentiment)
Ink: Vintage Cream, Melon Berry
Other: Buttons, cream button twine

Just a quick post for The Pink Elephant challenge. The challenge was to design something with a fun summer theme!

We are having a Luau for Avery's birthday party this year. This is the invitation and party favor bag and table place cards, which I will make for each of the girls. The little "purse" is a MyTimeless Template from Papertrey Ink. These downloadable templates make such easy work of creating little favor bags. I seriously love them!! I have some other ideas, but this is all I could get together for the challenge deadline. Now for the mass producing...Ugh!!

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14

Hey everyone! Just wanted to pop in with a card for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14. I've been a little missing in action lately... My back is acting up again...ugh!! So, Tuesday I meet with my doctor again and go over my options. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that surgery isn't the only one...I don't think I can go thru that again. Anyway, here is my card for the challenge:
