Hot Cocoa, Anyone?


Our theme for the CAS challenge this week over at Splitcoaststampers is CHOCOLATE.  Mmmmm!!  I just love this cute little monster from Your Next Stamp ready to dive into his cup of hot chocolate.  Isn't he fun with the googly eyes??  I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and added some gel pen accents and I followed this week's Sketch challenge for the layout.  I cut the card about 1/2" narrower than normal so the patterned paper could hang over the edge, but the card can still fit in a normal envelope.

Thanks for stopping by!! :)

Pink and Main Love is In the Air

Hello friends!

I made a card with my new Hummingbird set from Pink and Main to play along in their "Love is in the Air" challenge.

I think those flowers are so pretty!!  And the hummingbird is fun to color, too.

I hope you'll play along!

Pink and Main Birthday Owl

Hello friends!

I need a few birthday cards for next month so I decided to play along with a challenge or two. :). First, Little Red Wagon where they are asking you to choose a company you love and feature their stamps.  Oh dear!  There are WAY too many to choose from, so I decided to feature an image from a  new favorite of mine - Pink and Main, and a sentiment from an old favorite - Verve.  Maybe next time I'll do Your Next Stamp - or Craftin Desert Divas - or Power Poppy - or one of my favorite digi companies...  this list could be endless!! :). I also used a favorite paper pad from Doodlebug, my go-to markers - Spectrum Noir, and my white gel pen - LOVE!

I used a sketch from Tuesday Morning sketches for my layout...

Thanks for dropping by today!



Good morning!

I was feeling overwhelmed by all of the Valentine cards online yesterday, so I decided to make a spring card instead!!  I am looking forward to spring!!  I used the sweet Phoebe with Wagon set from Your Next Stamp to make my scene and used designer paper from Doodlebug's Bunnyville line.

Have a splendid day!

I was able to pick up this sweet girl from Stamping Bella when she was on sale at the beginning of the month.  I adore her huge pencil and the ... "hi".  That's about all I can think of to say when I write a letter (or a blog post!), too!!!

I watercolored the image with my Distress Markers and added a few gel pen accents.

I'm playing along with the Stamping Bella challenge to use dies.
Thanks for looking!
