More Exciting News...

Hello!  I have MORE news to share...   I was asked to join the Clear Dollar Stamps Digital Design Team!

And that is not all...  My friend Lisa Lara has designed her first digi stamps, and they are available with the new releases TODAY!!   I have been fortunate to have some of Lisa's original doodles, and am so happy that she is finally able to share her talents with everyone!  Congrats, Lisa!!  I'm so excited for you!!!  You can see all the new releases today on the Clear Dollar Stamps Blog.

So, of course I chose one of Lisa's cute images for my card today!  This one is from the set called "Cheeps".

I paper pieced the bird image, and colored the branch with Copic markers.  The papers are from Everyday Flair and Dilly Dally (My Mind's Eye).  The sentiment was hand cut...  just followed the curve.

Thanks for stopping by today!  We are enjoying an unbelievable stretch of 70 degree days here in Minnesota.  Almost unheard of in March!!!  I hope you get to enjoy a beautiful day wherever you are!

Hambo Challenge

Hello Everyone!  

I am sharing a card today that I made for the Hambo Hoedown Challenge.  It is a sketch challenge this week:

Here is my card:

I used the digi stamp called "Monster Weights" from Hambo Stamps.   I printed the image in two sizes.  I wanted to exaggerate the size of the dumbbells, so I printed it about twice as big as normal.  If you look closely, you can see the normal size dumbbell shows...  I colored it to make it look like a spot!!  

Cardstock: More Mustard, Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive (SU), White, Vanilla (PTI); Copic markers, Star punch (SU); Paper piercer (SU); circle die

Thanks for visiting today!!
