April Showers

I have a fun little card to share today. I used the latest image from Faith Skrdla called "April Showers", available at Designed2Delight digital stamps. I love this cute image! I tried something different with this card... I colored the image digitally in PSE (Photoshop Elements). That is AKA "the lazy crafter's coloring method"... hehe

The papers are from a grab bag by Plum Dumpling Designs that will be released tomorrow at ScrapMatters, and the sentiment is from Krisi's Kreations. It is also being released tomorrow at SM.

I am heading off to a field trip to see the movie "Oceans" with my twins and their 4th grade classes. They both made the honor roll, and their school does an honor roll field trip every quarter. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by... have a great day!

Beary cute card...

I just finished up another card for the latest challenge on the Designed2Delight blog. This image is called "Bunches", and it is available at Designed2Delight digital stamps. The papers are from a digital kit called Sunday Afternoon by Trixie Scraps and Sarah Bennett.

I had to laugh when I came upstairs with this card to photograph it. I was in a hurry to finish it up before the deadline, and I colored it downstairs where the lighting is not very good. I thought I could see okay at the time, but when I saw my card in good light, I realized the bear looks pretty bad! lol Oh well, if you squint he looks okay. I will have to try to do a touch up later...

Thanks for checking out my card.... have a great day!

Spring Peep

Hey there! Just stopping by to share my latest creation...

I really LOVE this adorable image by Faith Skrdla called "Spring Peep"! You can find this image and more at Designed2Delight digital stamps. I colored the image with a blender pen and the following Stampin' Up ink colors: So Saffron, Old Olive, Pink Passion, Soft Sky and Bashful Blue.

I also used the following digital supplies... Sunshine and Daffodils (elements), Sunshine and Daffodils (papers), Watercolor Papers and Snipettes: Springtime, all by Sahlin Studio. If you are into digital scrapbooking or hybrid papercrafting, you have got to check out Krista's store. She has so many gorgeous digital goodies!

Only a few more days left of Spring Break. The kids have enjoyed their time off school, but we sure have had some strange weather in the past week! Last Thursday and Friday, the temp got up into the 80's... highly unusual for Michigan in April. Then on Tuesday morning we had pouring rain and a thunderstorm with marble sized hail! There was flooding all over the place. Now today as I sit here and type this post, it has started snowing twice... but it only lasted a minute or two each time. Talk about strange! But that's Michigan for ya!

Have a great day!

Spring Break is here...

Just a quick post today.... my kids are all home for Spring Break this week, so it is very busy around here! I managed to get this card done for the latest challenge at Designed2Delight. This image by Faith Skrdla is called Light of Life, and you can find it at Designed2Delight digital stamps.

I colored the image with my Prismacolor colored pencils and sponged in the sky with Soft Sky ink. Unfortunately, the colors look a bit washed out in the photo.

The digital papers I used are all from the Enchanted Sea kit by A+ Designs and Pixie Perfect Designs.

It is fairly simple, but I think it makes a nice masculine birthday card. So that's all for now... hope you have a great week!
