Mother's Day Portrait

I'm a bit sad today.  This will be my last post for A & M Memories.  Angela will be closing her Etsy shop at the end of the month.  You will still be able to get printables until that time.  This little lady may be a digi you want to grab before it's too late.  This is Mother's Day Portrait -


All I have to say is that endings often result in new beginnings.  I'm am praying for all good things for Angela in the future.

Aloha, 
Brenda

Sketch Saturday #510


We have another sketch for you over at Sketch Saturday.  Claire has come up with a wonderful, versatile sketch for us to play with this week.


Our sponsor this week is Star Stampz


I took a few liberties with the sketch this week to accommodate the sweet image, Spring Bumble Bee.   


Please head over to the Sketch Saturday blog to see what the rest of the team has created - and to link up your own take on the sketch!

The Sasayaki Glitter Fairy

It's my turn on the Sasayaki Glitter blog and I'm so happy to be sharing The Fairy (#121).  When I saw her, I immediately loved her.  She looks like she should be hiding under these mushrooms/toadstool that have sprouted in our yard, it's been very rainy lately -


Here she is, The Fairy -



Check out the Sasayaki Glitter Etsy store for more wonderful digis like her.  

Wishing you a weekend full of sunshine and blue skies.

Aloha,
Brenda

COUS for LRW

Leave it to Janice to come up with something clever like COUS...cards of unusual size.  That's what she is challenging us to make this week at Little Red Wagon.  It could be anything but the standard 5.5"x4.25" or 5"x5" card.

I had a scrap on my table that was 4.5"x 4.5" and an already colored up image that would work perfect with that size.  This is what happened -



I really loved making this smaller card.  Now I am inspired to make a really small card so stay tuned.  Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own COUS!

Thanks for taking a look!

Aloha,
Brenda

Sorry I was a Brat

Here's more from the Fun with Food release from Frantic Stamper. This card uses 2 new die sets, Hot Dog (FRA-DIE-10432) and Soda/Beer Bottle or Can (FRA-DIE-10441)-


For this card, the heart on the bottle was heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The "brat" was given a bit of depth with my very ancient Decorating Chalks -


The sentiment is from the Hot Dog Sentiments clear stamp set (FRA-CL-097) and the heat embossed heart is from SodaPop/Popcorn Sentiments (FRA-CL-094) -


For a look at the inspiration from the entire release, here's the June video featuring all the design team cards.  Thanks so much for looking today.

Aloha,
Brenda

Anything is Popsicle


More goodies from the newest Frantic Stamper release, Fun with Food.  I had great fun making this card.  The popsicle itself uses the Large Popsicle die (FRA-DIE-10436).  The paper is used was created with alcohol inks that just seems perfect for a yummy popsicle. 

                                            


The punny sentiment is from the clear stamp set, Popsicle/Sundae Sentiments (FRA-CL-091).  Dots mimicking the popsicle colors were added and this CAS card is ready to mail!

I pray your weekend has been rich and full of all you love!

Aloha,
Brenda
