For all the kids who wish they were in Montana right now

I know - late in the season for a sled card, but this is such a cute image, I couldn't resist. SEI paper again with black and tangerine. The ovals and circles were done with nesties. The image was colored with copics and stardust (to accent the snow).

Martini, shaken, not stirred...

OK, I'm a chick...I don't watch James Bond movies. So, I had to go looking for a quote and "Martini, shaken, not stirred" was one I found. Well, my dad told me a joke...what did the duck say when he went into the bar? Put it on my bill. So, the inside of this card says: "Martini, shaken, not stirred. Put it on my bill."

This is another new stamp from Where they're having an awesome sale right now. This is Duck, James Duck. Too funny, huh? I paired him with one of my old loves that I've rediscovered - SEI DP. The ribbon is ribbonfx paired with a charm that I was lucky enough to have onhand. The sketch is from this week's sketch over at splitcoast.

Stamping - how I have missed you

OH - I have missed stamping! I colored this frog last week and put the card together this evening. I colored him with copics and sakura glitter pens. The paper is k & co. I used chocolate chip, wild wasabi and an unknown lemony colored yello. The sentiment - dedicated to my future prince charming, wherever he may be - was printed on the computer and punched with two sized oval punches and a label punch. The background for my prince was done with my nesties. The flowers are paper studio, ribbon unknown and charm unknown.

Another new stamp from Dog Gone Dogs!

That's right - it all started out with a few sketches of pups, but Dog Gone Dogs has more than just dogs. This beautiful stamp was just released. I stamped it with black ink and colored it with primas for a change - it just seemed to cry out for a lighter touch. I wish you could see the glitter on the wings! The card base is pirouette pink layered with wild wasabi and another layer of pirouette pink, stamped with a script background stamp. The flower girl is mounted on a curvy rectangle that I inked with a meadow scene, layered with wild wasabi and purely pomegranite. I stamped all of the flowers with the same script background and added a center of dew drops.

Bring on the Spring!

I love this little girl. My "little" girl, who is about to turn 16, used to wear pigtails and hulahoop! This is one of my new stamps from I used some previously hoarded su dp with wild wasabi, bashful blue, only orange and real red. The flower is a silk flower that I disassembled and paired with a polkadot prima. The eyelet is from We are Memory Keepers. It was kind of a muted orangey color, so I colored over it with an orange copic - just one of the great things about alcohol based markers. The eyelet says "You are my Sunshine". My dad used to sing when he shaved in the mornings and he often sang this song. The quote is part of the dp set and is by Ghandi. Come back soon and check out more of the cute new stamps I'm going to be creating with over the next few days!
