I'm jumping for joy...


I'm jumping for joy!  [insert jumps of joy here]  Why?  I’m so excited to announce that I have been selected to be a design team member for a new challenge blog, Triplicate Trials Tuesday.   This challenge is unique because it incoporates three parts: theme, color and sketch.

I'm absolutely stoked to be designing along side of some terrific ladies:

Thanks Rochelle for this opportunity.  I'm bursting at the seams and can't wait to get started. 

Be sure to mark your calendars as the first challenge will be May 31st.

Hello Mama Earth

Happy Earth Day!  This card is my way of inspiring awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. As much as I would love to take credit for that last lovely worded sentences, I can't as I just googled Earth Day and got something jazzy to say (from here).

To demonstrate a way of reusing, recycling and reducing waste, I made this card from a Best Buy gift card sleeve and other scrap materials.  I didn't use any new material to make this card.


This card participated in the following "earth friendly" challenges:

I'm not sleeping...I'm thinking of you

I haven’t played in a Mojo Monday Challenge in a couple of weeks. There’s no time like the present to rectify that mishap. So, this card is my take on the current Mojo Monday Challenge (186). This card has more layers than I usually have the patience for, but I managed to “bear” through it.


It may look like this bear is sleeping, but he is merely thinking of that sweet someone.

Smile

I never colored an image of a person, but I’ve wanted to use this digital stamp of Star Bright Tia from someoddgirl.com for some time now. They have adorable images.  When I finally got the gumption to give this coloring people thing a try, I came across the Card Patterns Sketch 109 and thought it perfect for this image.

I didn't too bad for a novice COPIC user. I’m excited to learn more about coloring with COPICS. The only thing I don’t like about the card is the ribbon as it kept fraying. I wish I could remember where I got it, so I won't ever use it again. Anywho, I’ve rambled on long enough.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend wherever you are in the world.

Squirt Life in the Eye!

I’ve heard variations of the sentiment “When life gives you lemons…”, but when I heard this version (on the card) I just had to make a card.



The styling of this card was inspired by the Case Study Challenge #33.
