Thinking of You!

Hi, my card here is for Cheri's challenge over at Stamp TV. She wanted us to make a card or project using Gina's "Dropped Shadow" technique. I made mine a little different instead of using a solid stamp, I used this Butterfly from Theresa's "Whimsical Spring" by Gina K. Designs. I actually made both butterflies out of it I just cut them in half. I liked how it looked so went with it. Like getting two for the price of one. Hee, hee.

I also used Theresa's "Little Critters" and the sentiment is from "Dogwood and Butterflies" by Gina K. Designs.
I sponged the background with Memento ink pads, the card stock is from GKD and the DP is Basic Grey. The butterflies were colored with Copic's.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes #157

Good morning!! Today is a beautiful spring looking day!! It is suppose to be in the seventies in the valley today!! WOW!! For this weeks challenge Mona has ask us to make a bookmark using a image from Flourishes. My Lilac tree has buds on it. So I thought of this set from Flourishes would the perfect one for my book mark. The set is "Lilac Set". I used the smaller Lilac image and stamped it twice on Ivory card stock from GKD. I colored the flowers with Copic's and sponged with Grape Jelly Memento. The DP is Basic Grey.
You can find the tutorial for making this bookmark here.

Here is a photo of it on a book page. Mother's Day is coming fast and I think my mom will love this, she loves to read and loves flowers. I can see I didn't have it on the page, oh well you get the idea!! I really enjoyed making this, it was easy I may do more this week.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

Some news and a Challenge

Hi, sorry I haven't posted much lately. Last week I was scrubbing a spot on the carpet and my ring finger got caught back and I torn the tendon . It made a loud popping noise and I thought I had broke it. The doctor said not broken but a torn tendon. Now I have to wear this gorgeous (not) metal brace until I can get it repaired. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to color at all but I was able to, just a little awkward .
Now on to much better news, you may have heard that my daughter Theresa Momber made it on this years DT on Spellbinders!! I was so excited for her. Congratulations again Theresa!!! You rock!!!

Here is the card I made. This is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #156. Beate has ask that we make a card and use some red on it. I used Flourishes stamp set "Sweet Violets" and colored with Copic's. Die is by Spellbinders and the punch is M.S. DP is by Basic Grey and card stock is GKD.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to Stamp TV's CSS Alumni Sketch Blog Hop for February . Today's gorgeous inspiration challenge photo is provided by Karen Knegten.
You should have arrived here from the very talented Joy.

For my card I was inspired by the boats and the colors. I used Gina's "Enjoy The Sunshine" and Theresa's " Aloha" stamps, both are by Gina K. Designs. Card stock and ribbon are from GKD. The images were colored with Copic's. Sponging was done with Memento on pure luxury CS by GKD.
Now doesn't this look like a place to be?

You will want to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (February 14), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!
The next stop ON THE HOP is the ever so talented Cheri. If you came here without stopping, you can start at STAMP TV.

I'm also entering my card in CPS anniversary celebration, day #7.

Hope you enjoy the hop and GOOD LUCK! Thanks for stopping by.

More Challenges

Hi, today I decided to try something new. I saw this over at SCS, how to make a word card. The tutorial is by Dina Kowal and Beate has a video. The words are a free print download. Not one of my better cards but I guess it's okay for my first try, I now know not to use really heavy CS. LOL
If you are wondering why the little flower looks like it is just stuck on the lower part of the I, I kinda cut in too far and popped the flower on to cover it up!! Better than just tossing the whole thing. Right!!

I used Theresa's Purr-fectly Delightful" for the kitty and "Dogwood and Butterfly" both sets are by Gina K. Designs.
Here is a closer look of the kitty. My DH and looked at some cats last week-end, I think we are about ready for one after the loss of our beloved cat.
Sorry this really looks better in RL but just couldn't get a good photo today.

Thanks for stopping by.
