Hamlet Pigwit Being Shy

Hi All, Here's my take on I {heart} card sketches with a twist #No 106.  This week's twist is to use a two word sentiment.  For my card, I combined two From the Heart Stamps -- Hamlet PigWit Being Shy and Spring Fence -- to create the garden scene. The two word sentiment is a die cut. 

I paper-pieced the fence with grunge wood digi paper from Doodle Pantry.  Both paper-piecing and coloring were done digitally.

I will also be entering this card in the following fun challenges:
Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge #212 -- National Garden Month

Many thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Flower Ladybug Love

Just a quick post tonight to share the card I made to enter in Bugaboo's April Bingo Challenge.  I used the bingo items listed in the first row across:  flower theme; a button and a Bugaboo image.

The cutie patootie image I used is Bugaboo's Flower Ladybug Love.   I colored the image digitally and added an anniversary sentiment.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Rubber Boots

Hi everyone!  Every spring when the temps warm up and we get lots of rain, tiny sugar ants manage to find a way into my craft room through the weep holes in the window tracks... I'm not a big fan of ants except for the fun digi kind!  So after a morning debugging the area, I was inspired to create a spring card using two Doodle Pantry sets -- Rubber Boots and Ant Accents Color.  

The rubber boots image was paper-pieced and colored digitally.  Although not visible in the photo, the flowers were glazed and sprinkled with glitter for added sparkle and shine.  

I will be entering this card in the following fun challenges:
The Paper Girls Challenge #64 -- April Showers Bring May Flowers
Pile It On Challenge #65 -- April Showers Bring May Flowers

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a fun day!

Warbler and Magnolias

Hi All!  I'm back today with my take on this week's i {heart} sketches with a twist No. 105.  I turned the sketch on its side and kept my design very simple to allow the beautiful image to take center stage.

I used a new From The Heart Stamps image called Warbler and Magnolias.  I merged the image on top of grey dotted paper and colored the image digitally.  Then finished my design with a daisy embellishment.

I will also be entering my card in the following challenges:
Creative Moments Challenge 66 -- Anything Goes/Spring or Easter
The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge TT041615 -- anything goes/optional twist is CAS

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you are enjoying a wonderful day!

Monkey Peeps

Hi all!  Today's card was a fun card to make and much easier to put together than it sounds in my description.  To make the fun scene, I combined images from the following Doodle Pantry sets:

The monkey image is from Monkey Peeps.
The palm tree I used is from the Lil Gorilla Jungle
The sand is from the Palm Tree set. I cropped the sand from one of the images, resized the sand portion, and added texture to create a new 'larger' sand base.
The tropical fruit and flower image is from the Aloha set.  

To create the scene, I first pasted the palm tree in a Word document.  Next, the"new" larger sand base was pasted on top of the palm tree. Then the monkey was pasted behind the palm tree.  Finally, I placed the tropical fruit and flower on top of the sand.  After all the images were merged/grouped together, I added the sky background behind the images.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter; I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend.  This cute image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is called Flower Critters -- Bunny. The image was colored digitally. I combined the image with a sentiment from MDS by SU!; and embellished the card with a handmade flower.  

I will be entering this card in Catch the Bug April Anything Goes Challenge.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Ants in My Pantry Digital Challenge 4

Happy April!  Today starts a new Ants in My Pantry Digital Challenge (AIMPDC4) on the Doodle Pantry Blog.  The theme is anything goes and is not limited to Doodle Pantry images; you can use any company's image as long as it's digital.  The challenge runs through April 24; and the random winner of the $15 Doodle Pantry gift certificate will be announced on the 26th of the month. 

With Easter this coming weekend, I thought I'd share one of the Easter cards I made using a maze from the Doodle Pantry's set, Mini Mazes Spring.  I just added a fuzzy pink nose and layered the bunny maze on top of digi paper from Easter Fun Digi Paper Pack.  The sentiment is from another DP set, Easter Egg Ants.

Thanks so much for stopping by; and to those of you that celebrate --  Happy Easter!
