Make It Colourful Challenge #14

Hello everyone!  Just popping in to share two cards I made for the Make It Colourful Challenge #14.  The challenge was to use ball point pen or other medium you don't typically use.  What I love about MiC challenges is that they really do challenge you.  They are unique challenges that I find inspiring!  Here are my cards.
 For this card I used Gnomey Peter and a Bic ballpoint pen.

For Tress Dancing I used several colors of Bic ballpoint pens.

There is still plenty of time to join the challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Happy 50th Birthday Lorie!

It's a special day today!  It is Lorie's 50th birthday.  I met Lorie several years ago at Peachy Keen Stamps.  She is one of the nicest people I know, loving, gracious, talented, just to name a few!  She has twinkle in her eye and a smile that will light up a room!

Lorie I wish you a very Happy Birthday and many, many more!  Enjoy your day!

Love you Lorie!

TTCRD challenge June 24-30

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing my final card with you as a DT member for TTCRD.  I have stepped down from all design teams to focus on family life, but will continue to post cards here and there, as time permits.  When I saw this beautiful poppies digital stamp by Aurora Wings I knew I just had to have it.  Poppies are some of my favorite flowers!  Here it is.

Colored with Copics.  Sentiment is from Stampin' Up and the punched butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch.

Hugs and smiles,

TTCRD Anything Goes Challenge June 10-16

Hello everyone!  Time for another anything goes challenge at TTCRD.  Click HERE for all the details.  For my card today I have used the clown from the newest release from Peachy Keen Stamps, PKSC-30 June 2014.  Isn't he the cutest clown?  A lot of people think clowns are creepy.  Well these clowns are not creepy.  They are the cutest clowns I have ever seen!  You can check out the entire release HERE.  Here is my card.

I colored the clown with copics and used a spellbinders die to cut it out.  Mounted it on polka dot paper from Penny Black, Madison designer paper pad.  This was a quick card to make and I think it's cute!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
