Pink Balloon

Hi There - When I saw the challenge at Case This Sketch this week I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I always loved watching helium filled balloons go up into the clouds, so magical, especially when I was a kiddo.

All dies and the Tickled Pink stamp are from My Favorite Things, I just love the MFT dies and stmaps - And lately I love PINK :)

Here's this week's sketch:

So glad you're here; beautiful day in sunny Colorado today :)

Foxy Thanks...

So, I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and tried some mixed media (I know just a little bit of mixed media), but still I tried it.  I bought a brick stencil, glitter paste and a little spreader knife and put this shiny brick wall on my card.  I like it, I'm gonna do this some more :)

I'm entering this card in the "anything goes" challenge at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

Wishing you a wonderful day :)

Cute Birds in Boots...

Just added this cute bird in boots stamp from Whipper Snapper to my stamp collection.  I saw these cute little birds and knew I had to have them.  Just so happens this week's challenge at City Crafter is "polka dots" and the bird on the left has polka dot boots.  The raindrops and heart are polka dotty in their own way too :)

I used Stampin' Up watercolor crayons to color the images; just love these watercolor crayons, so easy to use and get varying shades of colors.

Here is the image City Crafter gave for inspiration:

Glad you stopped by :)

thinking of you today....

I made this little card for the challenge at The Card Concept called "Floral Radiance".  My card is clean and simple (CAS), just a layer and a lot of open space.  I used the colors in the challenge for my flowers and the tub the flowers are in.  Here's the photo we were given for inspiration:

So happy you stopped by today.  Spring is not too far away, yeah!

Warm Birthday Wishes

Using the sketch from this week's challenge at Case This Sketch, I made this birthday card for my friend, Ingrid.

I recently added some "pearl" paper to my ever growing paper stash and love the shine to this pretty paper (hard to see in the photo).  And, I'm still loving my new Zig clean color markers, I used them for the 2 tone flower and the multi-color flags.

Here is the sketch for the challenge:

So glad you stopped by today.

Our Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50!
Life just doesn't get much happier than this :)
