Fish You Were Here!

Hello sorry it's been a while since my last post, I have been busy with family matters, nothing to worry about just the kids activities! Well it's the last of the month, boy where has this month gone, way too fast in my opinion!!

I have a few cards to show you using stamps from Marks Finest Papers March release.

My first card is using African Veldt stamp set, I went with a birthday theme card. I colored this image with my good old Prisma colored Pencils!

My second card is using Fish You Were Here stamp set, I wanted an I miss you card. The background craft paper was stamped with small fishes and then just glued some vellum paper over it. Love this foggy look. This image was colored with Copic Markers.

My third card is using Grandma's Boudoir, I love this sentiment that comes in this set!! This image was colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Thank you for swinging by and for your sweet comments!!

In The Doghouse

Hello it's my turn to post on the Sunday's With Crissy Challenge blog, this month our theme is *Stitching*, I love stitching on my projects, I feel it gives them an extra pretty touch, now it could be faux or real you decide!

There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

I used the Digi image In The Doghouse by Crissy Armstrong available at Whimsy stamps, I love this cute dogie just waiting in his cute house! I colored my image with Copic Markers, I stitched all around my papers following this month challenge. You still have a few days to play along, so hurry and whip up a card!!

Your projects can be linked up on SARAH'S POST...just look for the little blue Inlinkz frog at the end of her post. Thank you and have a blessed day!!

Hello thanks for peeking in, Today I want to share two cards I made using the stamp set "Just Dandy" from Marks Finest Papers. I have always loved Dandylions and when I saw this set my jaw dropped. You really have to check it out!

These two cards were ready in no time, using this set you can get cards done in no time. Sometimes we need a greeting card right away and this is a great stamp set to get them done quickly.

I embossed the image with white embossing powder and then I just rubbed slowly ink all over my image for that cute look!

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments!!
