Pretty in Pink-ish ~

Thursday, February 27, 2014

I titled this one Pretty in Pink-ish because it's not quite pink I guess, and in hindsight I
probably should have chosen a different and more matching DP to use.  But....I already had it cut, and then realized after I colored the image in that it wasn't as matchy-matchy as I would have liked it to be.  Anyhoo - I went with it anyway, even though it's hurting the perfectionist side of my brain just a little bit.  Well ok, maybe more than a little bit...  :)

Happy Friday-Eve!!

That's What the Fox Said ~

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I'm using some new Close to My Heart products today, this fox being one from the February Stamp of the Month stamp set, and the sentiment is a separate stamp that I like that is just like the birthday stamp that I've used here, if you remember.  This is another of my favorite color combinations too!

Fluttering by ~

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Another cutie of an image and sentiment combo from Pink Petticoat!  I'll be honest and admit that those floating flowers were not originally planned but the clever disguise of a fingerprint of liquid pearls!   I will call it some artistic expression today, how about that?!

This is for Sketch Saturday No. 296.

You're still Hot! ~

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Another great new image that I got and one of the things that sold me are all of the sentiments that come with it, this being one of them.  I think if you're at around the same age as me, you understand this sentiment exactly!  And my camera/lighting worked out perfectly for me again too, yippee!

Turtle Carver ~

Monday, February 10, 2014

It's Monday which means I need to find something cute to help you smile, so I hope this busy guy does the trick!

I'm following the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge No. 474 and I'm so happy at how this all turned out.  Even the lighting for the picture looks good.  I'm doing a happy dance because the stars must have been aligned for this one.  I hope you like it too!

Oh...I'm going to be using all new digital images this week that I just got, and to justify it I'm going to be using old paper that's needed some love for awhile now.  I bet if some of you dig deep enough you may find some in your stash too!

Party Favors ~

Saturday, February 8, 2014

Hi there and Happy Saturday, or what's left of it!  I had another fun CTMH party today, and I thought I'd share the two party favors that I made.  The first one is based off of one that I saw on Pinterest, but turned out pretty cute!

The second one is a small 3x3 notebook from the .99 cent store, where I got 8 of them in a package.  I just prettied them up a little bit.

I hope you had a great Saturday, I'm headed for the couch now to watch some Olympics!

I like big bows & I cannot lie ~

Monday, February 3, 2014

Catchy title right?  I'm pretty sure this is the biggest card I've ever made.  I found these card/envelope sets while straightening out a cupboard recently, and in my quest to use stuff that's been around awhile today this was it!  It's 5 x 6 1/2 and the layout idea came from one I saw on Pinterest, of course.  There really wasn't much coloring involved, and I'm not sure it's one that can go through the US Mail's hands, but fun to make all in all!

Pansy Sundae ~

Hello! This one is for Sketch Saturday No. 295, and their sponsor is A Day for Daisies.  I decided to use one of their images called Pansy Sundae, since it would make another pretty birthday card.  I was hoping it would look like a waffle cone bowl, with vanilla bean ice cream and candied pansies on top....how did I do?
