Cute Stuff Sketch Challenge

Back today from HOT Phoenix, Arizona!  It was a good trip, other than the 111 degree temps, I really liked Phoenix.  The people are so nice and the city is so clean.  The girls played well, kept working hard to the end!  I am very glad to be home though, Hawaii is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.  Will be glad to have Kelly home tomorrow.

This card is one I did for the Cute Stuff's sketch challenge.  I took this picture after Lianne put it on the board, sorry, it is kinda crooked.  The DP is My Mind's eye, cardstock is DCWV.  The flowers were made with the Die-namics Rolled Daisy (LOVE IT!).  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.  Check out Lianne's Facebook page, Cute Stuff Hawaii.  Details on the challenge are posted, you still have a few more days to create for a chance to win!

I have one day to rest up, then back to work.  Hope you are having a week full of good stuff!
Aloha,
Brenda

Greeting Farm's Owl

I love this little owl!  He is in a Greeting Farm set I recently purchased.  I made this card for a co-worker who loves owls.  I think she is gonna likey!  Other details;  My Mind's Eye DP, DCWV cardstock,  MFT rolled daisy Die-namic, Darice Hemp, Hero Arts Birthday Wishes and a Sizzix embossing folder.  The image is colored with Copic Markers and the background was chalked.

I will be away for a little over a week.  I will be going to Volleyball Festival in Phoenix with my daughter and her team.  My first visit to Arizona, and I am looking forward to it.  My only regret is I probably will not get to visit any stamping/scrapbooking stores.  On the bright side, we do have a visit to Trader Joe's scheduled!

Aloha,
Brenda

NOMO still holding me back!

I am still struggling with whatever this lack of creativity is.  I sometimes think it is just that life is so hectic that I am having a hard time taking the time (or having the energy) to enjoy it .  I am however, still motivated by caring for my loved ones, thus the creation of this card.  I am sure I got the sketch off someone's blog.  I think it is another SFYTT design, sorry I can't remember.  Whose ever it is, it's a keeper!  I used a Whippersnapper stamp, DCWV card stock, Cosmo Cricket  DP (love it!), Die-namics rolled rose done with felted wool, DMC thread, EK success border punch and ribbon from my beloved stash.  This card is for my dear cousin, Brenna.  It will be late but none the less filled with love!  With any luck I will post another card I did tomorrow!  Hope you have been able to enjoy Dad's Day with a Dad that is special to you!

Aloha,
Brenda
