Playing with the Pals ...

I have not played with the Pals Paper Arts in a while so thought I would participate this week.  They had a fun sketch to get you motivated ...

I wanted to use some cardstock that I don't use often.  I looked through my stash and decided on Pool Party.   A pretty color but it is not one I use much.  Here is my finished card ... very simple ...
Stamps:  Flower Fancy (SU)
Paper:  White, Pool Party, Not Quite Navy (SU)
DP: Pool Party
Ink:  Always Artichoke, Pool Party (SU markers), Tea Dye (Ranger)
Accessories:  sponge dauber, blender pen, pop dots, baker's twine , scallop border punch, polka dot embossing folder (SU), oval and scallop dies (Spellbinders), Stickles
One of my flower petals has a white spot on it.  That would be because of operator error ... I stuck my finger in the Stickles before it was dry ...not once, not twice but three times.  I even heat set it but kept sticking my finger in it to see if it was dry.  Guess I would be one of those that has to touch the paint to see if it is dry even though there is a sign that says Wet Paint...
Thanks for stopping by and as always ...
Have a great day!

Just a note ...

A real quick post as the deadline for entering this card into Tuesday Morning Sketches is in a couple of hours.  Here is the sketch ...

Here is what I created ...
Stamps:  Love From Cocoa (Sweet 'n Sassy)
Paper:  Early Espresso, Whisper White (SU), Lime Green
DP:  Recollections
Ink:  Memento Black, Early Espresso (SU)
Accessories:  Copics, square and scallop dies (Spellbinders), sponge dauber, label punch (SU), ribbon (H.L.)
As you can see this card will be going to Bethany.  I thought I would hand write a little something so the paper wouldn't look so empty.
Thanks for stopping by and as always ...
Have a great day,

Fall festivities ... already

Thought I would break out an old set and do a little Fall/Thanksgiving card.  I went to one of my favorite sites, MOJO Monday-The Blog to get the juices flowing.  
Here is the finished card ...

Stamps:  Always Thankful, Loads of Love Accessories (SU)
Paper:  Black, White
DP:  Simply Delightful (My Minds Eye)
Ink:  Memento Black, Tea Dye (Ranger)
Accessories:  Prismacolor markers, sponge dauber, button, pop dots (SU), ribbon (H.L.), rectangle, circle and scallop dies (Spellbinders)
This card is actually 5 x 7.  The image looked too big for an A2 sized card with the layers. 
Thanks for stopping by and as always ...
Have a great day!

MOJO 300 celebration ...

This week Julee, vervegirl, over at MOJO Monday is celebrating her 300th sketch.  How awesome is that!  I love her site and had to participate in this challenge.  Here is what she drew up ...

This is my take ...

Stamps:  Woof You (Sweet 'n Sassy), bone (All Night Media)
Paper:  White, Black, Melon Mambo (SU)
DP:  Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise (SU)
Ink:  Memento Black
Accessories:  rectangle and scallop dies (Spellbinders), corner chomper (WRMK), ribbon (H.L.), polka dot embossing folder (CB), pop dots, Copics

Bethany just started her new nursing job at the UAB trauma and burn ICU.  Being in her first apartment by herself, she decided to get a Maltese puppy.  This card will be going to her from her puppy, Ellie.  Yours truly is actually keeping the puppy until she gets her fixed schedule.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always...

Have a great day!
