Under My Umbrella..

Happy Thursday everyone. Hope your all having a fabulous week. It's actually sunny here today. Lucky us. I have been sitting out on the deck soaking up some rays. This adorable image is from Stampavie by Gillian Roberts. It's called Under My Umbrella. I picked it up at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time when it first arrived. It's taken me a while to ink it up. Glad I finally did.

The flowers are Marvy and Punch Bunch Punches. The saying is on the new Spellbinders Die called Ribbon Tag Trio Three. I cut the ends off.. Never thought of doing that before but seen someone else had so what the heck thought I would too. I never seem to get any of them on to ribbon any ways. I've colored her with my Copics...

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your having a great day. Don't forget about the challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's.

Dreaming Geraniums...

Happy Monday everybody. Hope your having a fabulous day. I picked up this cute new Penny Black stamp at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time Friday and thought it would be perfect for my next water coloring class. Isn't it adorable? I stamped the image twice and cut a few things out to pop up. Like the little bunny, I made him so he seems bent. The border punch is called Flower Burst by EK Success. I also found that on Friday. They have so many cool punches now. This is also my water coloring class for next month.

Hope your all having a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by.

What's Cooking..

Hey everyone. How's everything going? I'm having a lovely Wednesday. Have you seen this cutie available over at Mo's Digital Pencil? It's called What's Cooking and you can buy her for only a $1 if you register at Mo's new store. ALL proceeds are going to help Japan. She's already raised $500 isn't that wonderful! So help spread the word..

Do you have any punch bunch punches? Or any other hard to make work punches? I know I do. Well I've seen this little gadget at my local scrapbook store a while now and was like how great can it be? So Michelle gave us skeptics a demonstration the other day. OH MY GOD!!! you barely have to push on the handle to make your most difficult punches work. I literally have this one punch that a would have to set on the floor and step on to make it punch.. No more stuck it under the circle gave it a little push and ta da punched like slicing through butter. Well worth the $80 I spent on it with all the punches I use... Highly recommended!!

Off to play some more. Hope your having a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by.

Sweet Blossom..

Happy Saturday Everyone. I found these wonderful new digi's over at Wee Stamps and had to color a couple of them up right away. This one is called Sweet Blossom. Isn't she cute? The paper is the new Bo Bunny Garielle. It's lovely paper although I think I like the back of the papers best. That's one of the good things about double sided paper you can always turn it over.

I have used Ranger distressing ink Walnut Stain on all the paper edges to grudge it up a bit. I whipped up a sketch in case you'd like to give it a try. I have to figure out how to make a scalloped mat and some leaves, but until I do this will have to do. I know you get the basic idea. I lost all that stuff when my computer crashed.

I'm off to water coloring class. Hope you have a fabulous day. Thanks for stopping by!

Card 2...

Happy Friday everybody. Hope your having a great day. Ready for the weekend I hope. Here is my second card for my Copic's class next month. Isn't she adorable? Love those Tilda's. This on is called Tilda with Lace Jeans. She from the new Butterfly Collection that should be out every where pretty soon. The paper is some of the new Graphics 45. It's pretty colorful. I wasn't to sure about the mustard yellow, but I think I made it work.

I'm not feeling very wordy today, so I'll say good bye. Plus I need to come up with a water coloring card. Hope you all have a fabulous day. Thanks for stopping by!

Waiting Tilda..

Happy Thursday everybody. Hope your having a great week. I've been coloring away. Thought I would finish up my Copic's class for next month. I like to be prepared. If I wait until the last minute I might not come up with anything... My local scrapbook store Memories of Time is having a 40% off sale on Christmas paper so that's what I used. 40% off is 40% off, beside you can barley see that Christmas ornament at the bottom. I didn't put to many embellishments on it because I wanted the image to be what everybody looks at. The image is from the Magnolia - Your So Special Collection: Waiting Tilda & Romantic Window. I masked Tilda and then stamped the window over the top. The windows have Ranger Glossy Accents on them. Looks really cool!

I'll be back tomorrow with the other card. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Ben in the Rain..

Happy Wednesday everybody. Hope your all having a fabulous day. We are drowning in rain today. YUCK! It's coming down in buckets full. I'm not outside enjoying it quite this much. Little to damp for me. But doesn't this cute Whiff of Joy image Ben in the Rain look like he's having fun? I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the puddles & rain drops to make them shiny. Looks pretty cool.

I dug out all my H2O's now I need to get me some cutting boards so I can organize them like Katharina has done in her post HERE. They are a pain to figure out which one you want when they are all thrown in a bucket. Organizing will help I'm sure. Then I will actually use them. They look really pretty when applied.

I have colored my image with Ranger Distressing Inks: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass, Black Soot, Fired Brick, Shabby Shutters, Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Aged Mahogany on Canson 140lb water color paper.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great day!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #54...

Happy Tuesday everybody. Are you ready for another fabulous challenge over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog? This weeks challenge is "NATURE". How fun. That you can get from a lot of Cheryl's fabulous images. Just look at all the new Flowers she added last week or the cute boy and girl taking a nap by the fence. Adorable! I have used an old image called Bunny Chit Chat. Hope you'll find some time to join the challenge this week. Looking froward to seeing your wonderful creation.

The flower is a MFT die-namics die Upsy Daisy and the mat underneath is a new die I found at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time by Prickley Pear. It's really pretty. I colored my image with Copic Markers, but found it in my already colored pile so I don't have any idea what colors I used.

Hope your having a fabulous day!! Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Monday everybody. This Nora with Raincoat another Whiff of Joy image by Alison Acton. I think these are just adorable. I've always loved her stuff, but just haven't pick up any in a long time. You know how it with so many different lines to pick from you have to change it up every once in a while.

The paper I pulled out of the kit drawer and can't find a name on it. I must have thrown that part away the last time I used it. The clouds are a My Favorite Things die-namics die called Cloud Trio. The saying I found over at Create with TLC. I think she's really cute. I need to break out my H2O's to color her next time. I haven't had those out in a long time.

I have again colored her with Ranger Distressing Inks: Tea Dye, Tattered Rose, Stormy Sky, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Black Soot, Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans & Weathered Wood.

Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow for the new Sassy Cherly Challenge.. Have a great day!

Skater Ben..

Hey everyone. Hope your having a great weekend. Look what I picked up over at Whiff of Joy, Skater Ben. Isn't he great? I love the cartoon look of these new images. So cute. The flowers are the new Die-namics Upsy Daisy die By My Favorite Things. It even embosses the leaves and flower centers. Love it. I'm going to have to get another one though so I can cut out twice as many in one time. :o) I sprayed the whole card with shimmers. It's really sparkly.

I have colored him with Ranger Distressing Inks: Tea Dye, Tattered Rose, Faded Jeans, Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Forest Moss, Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters & Tumbled Glass. I made the clouds in the back ground with a template I free handed then cut out.

See you tomorrow with Nora with Raincoat another Whiff of Joy Image. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!!

Butterfly Collection..

Happy Wednesday everybody. Hope your all having a great week. I managed to get a hold of a few of the new Magnolia Butterfly Collection stamps over at Stamping Scrapping. They are really cute I can't wait until the rest is out. But then I think most stamps are cute. But come on isn't she adorable with her little rabbit? I even broke out a new Martha Stewart border punch called Garden Gate. It's really big, so I'm not sure if I really LOVE it.. We'll see.

The flowers are the MFT Flower & Leaf Trio. I couldn't find it on there site, so it must be out at the moment. I actually ended up getting two so I could cut out twice as many flowers at a time. Cheater that I am.

Hey thanks for stopping by. Hope you get a little inspiration. Have a fabulous day!

Hey everyone. Happy Monday. It's going to be a great week. I'm trying to be positive. Maybe the week will go a little better that way.. Todays card is Secretive Tilda. I colored her for last Saturdays class then didn't like the colors with the paper. I love all the flowers on this one. It helps having all the flower punches you own on the counter. I punched out a bunch of different kinds and started sticking them together.

The cherry border is a Magnolia Die along with the Rose Leaves. The other leaves are an EK Success punch. I of course Stickled every thing really good. The flowers are colored with my Spica Pink pen.

I wrote down the copic's I used since it was for class: Yeah!!

Tilda with Heart...

Happy Sunday everyone. I'm still laughing over the YouTube post below. Way to funny!! Michelle at my local scrapbook store Memories of Time asked if I could do another class next Saturday. Couple of the girls had to cancel. Lucky for me!! So I spent today coming up with some thing. It took a while. I had idea, but the coloring didn't go the way I wanted it to, so had to start over. I kept the one I didn't like. It was just to much brown for me. I'll change paper and make it up too though.

I used my new Zutter Electric Distressing Tool. Man is that thing is fun. I laughed every time I put a piece of paper through it. Makes this great ripping sound. Super easy. Makes a little bit of a mess, but not as bad as I thought it would. Expect to see more distressing from now on. I dug out a bunch of my flower punches so I could make up the flowers. I even found the cute Martha Stewart Butterflies punch at the bottom of the bin. I didn't even know I had it. Love the little butterfly. Of course added a bunch of Star Dust Stickles to everything. The saying is from Raindrop Echo Designs. Also forgotten. So Sad...

I'm off to work on my card for Sassy Cheryl's Tuesday Challenge now. I haven't even started it yet.. Terrible!! Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!

So Funny...

I was blog hoping this morning and came across this on Paper Pleasing Ideas blog. I have no idea what they are saying, but i laughed so hard tears were running down my face. I can totally see my two brothers doing this to someone or each other..
