Gid-ee-up!

Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope you've had a good week so far!  My week has been very busy since I got back and the rest of the week is going to be even busier.  I really need some downtime to spend in my craft room!  Anyway, I am here now with my DT post for the Digi Bells blog.  Today, it's my turn to share some inspiration using the adorable images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Night of Navy and the patterned papers are from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 pad.  The darling image is Giddyup Pony from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few big button with Baker's Twine bows and a leather cowgirl hat sticker finished my card. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Elphine House Australia Challenge #61

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday (at least in Brisbane).  It's still Tuesday night here and it's time for me to share my DT card for this month's Elphine House Australia Challenge.  The theme this month is "recycle or re-use something" for your project.  That leaves it pretty wide open, but please remember that you must use an Elisabeth Bell image.  It can be from any company that carries Elisabeth Bell designs.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Summer Starfruit and the patterned papers are from the Kaisercraft Botanical Odyssey 6.5x6.5 pad.  The sweet image is Emma's Gift of Love from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  My recycled/reused item is the doily in the background.  I lifted it from under a dessert dish at dinner recently.  I actually do that whenever they are still in decent condition.  You never know when a used doily will come in handy  for card projects!  The scalloped border is a diecut from the same paper pad.  A few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored-image:

Sketch Saturday #323

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  As I mentioned yesterday, I am away for a couple of days and this is a pre-scheduled post, so I hope it goes off as planned.  I am here to share my DT card for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts who are offering a £10.00 GC to their online store.


Here is this week's great sketch from Alex:
Here is my card:
 

I did a little tweaking by flipping the sketch and moving the sentiment a little.  My card base and mats are SU Kiwi Kiss and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Jasmine die cut pad. The sweet image is Fairy Faye Catches a Star from Tiddly Inks.  I colored her with my Copics awhile back during one of Alyce's Kit and Clowder color-alongs.  I finished coloring her and added some White Paint Pen accents and Goldenrod Stickles to the stars. The sentiment is In The Dark digi From QKR Stampede.  A few gold stars punched from glitter paper finished my card.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  It will be happy for me if you see this post on time!  I had to go out of town for a couple of days, so my next two posts will be pre-scheduled.  I won't have much internet access until I'm back home, but I will try to check in occasionally.  Today, I am sharing my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to recognize the color palette on your creation.  You can now use any coloring medium you'd like for the challenge, but you must still have a colored image as part of your project.

Here is the color inspiration, courtesy of Design Seeds:


Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Rose Red and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Plum Seed collection.  The adorable image is Jacque With Lily from Art by Mi Ran.  It was generously shared as a freebie when the Facebook group reached 600 members.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some White Gel Pen and Ice White Pearl Pen accents.  The banner was cut with the Party Banner die from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Two wooden butterflies and a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished my card.
