Polka Dot Pal Eric

I have another Little Miss Muffet card to share with  you today.  This little fellow, Eric.  He was a digital image that is unfortunately no longer available but, you really need to pop in the Little Miss Muffet shop because there are plenty of other cute images available at deep discounts.

Here is Eric -


Don't hesitate, get them before they are gone!

Thanks so much for stopping in!

Pearls or Buttons


It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share your favorite, buttons or pearls.  Use your favorite on your creation and be sure to share why it's your favorite. 


This week our sponsor is:

Crafts U Love

Both pearls and buttons are great embellishments but I prefer pearls because they are so versatile and make for a bit less bumpy card to post -



Hope you'll stop by and play cards with us!

Time Will Tell #480



I love this weeks challenge over at Little Red Wagon! Kate is brilliant coming up with this timely challenge. She want to see clocks, watches, calendars, anything that has to do with time. I pulled out a favorite, but little used stamp for this one.

I love the sentiment that goes with this cute stamp, Time Out, from The Cat's Pajamas -

Sketch Saturday #546


Hi everyone!  We are now a couple weeks into the new year.  I hope if you make resolutions, they are going well.  If one of your intentions was to play more sketch challenges, we would love for you to join us this week at Sketch Saturday!  Kelly is our sketch designer this week and she has a good one for us.


Our sponsor this week is one of my favorites, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

This week, I used an image from my personal Bugaboo digi collection.  This is Balloon Unicorn which I could only find in this wonderful Birthday Unicorn set.  I stayed pretty true to the sketch as you can see -


I got out my Kohinoor to color this cutie up.  After he was colored, I added some Nuvo Shimmer which makes him look a little blotchy.  The sentiment is from a Wordsworth set I was very happy to pick up this summer in my travels.

I do hope you'll be able to join us this week at Sketch Saturday.  For more details, here ya go.

Aloha,
Brenda

Old Time Pick Up Truck

Hi everyone!  I finally got around to coloring up the Old Time Pick Up Truck from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I thought this would be the perfect Valentine's Card for one of my guys.  If you haven't heard, Barbara will be taking a sabbatical and her digital stamps are currently 50% off.  You need to grab those you want soon because after January 12, it will be too late.

Here's the card I conjured up for this lovely digi -


I colored this image with Copic markers and used sketch #302 from CAS(E) this Sketch to keep things simple.

Don't put it off now, head on over to the store to get those cutes you've wanted but never got.  After January 12, it will be too late.

Thanks for stopping in!

Aloha,
Brenda

Little Red Wagon #479



I'm so happy to let you know about our Little Red Wagon Challenge this week. I am the hostess and have chosen Mahalo Nui Loa as the theme.  This means thank you very much in Hawaiian.  I guess you've figured it out, we want to see your thank you cards/projects. I love having plenty of thank you cards on hand because there are so many reasons to use them.

Here is my card -



I loved using this Altenew layering stamp and coordinating Altenew ink.  They were some goodies I picked up during the after Christmas sales that were so abundant.


I hope this will be a challenge that will help you get some of your holiday thank you notes done.  If it's more inspiration you would like, be sure to check out the wonderful projects the Girlfriends have created. Then head back to the Little Red Wagon to link up your project.  I hope you'll consider joining us this week!

Aloha,
Brenda
