Twisted Sketches #57 - Happy Mother's Day

Hello my friends!

It's time for another Twisted Sketches card.  This weeks twist is: Shine - any how, any way.  For this weeks sketch challenge, click HERE.

I'm really digging how my card turned out.  I used this weeks Color Throwdown (#139) and think these colors are really great together.  For the "shine" part in my card, I die cut a transparent butterfly that I sandwiched between the twine bow and Prima flower.  It's very pretty in real life. 

My fellow design team friends have created some amazing cards for your viewing pleasure today.  I do hope you'll head over to see what they've created.  Always so inspiring!

Have a wonderful day!

CIC #108 - Birthday Wishes

Happy Easter to all!

I hope that you have a blessed day with family and friends, and are enjoying the day.  I apologize, but this post will be a bit short as I will be headed out today with friends for brunch. 

This week we're sponsored by Wild Rose Studio.  This company has some adorable images, and we got to use some of them in our projects this week.  I hope you'll head over to their site and check them out.  It's worth a trip.

The images we were to use this week paired very nicely with this weeks inspiration photo.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

Isn't it the cutest?!  This would be perfect for a princess themed birthday party.  I love the purple and green together as well.  Below is the card I created, using this photo.

I wanted a purple dinosaur.  Most are green, but I was in a purple mood.  I used Fergus with Cupcake and think he's absolutely adorable!  I don't normally use purple this much, but for some reason, I was really in the mood to keep piling it on. lol

I hope you'll head over to see what the other Sweeties have made today, and check out our fabulous sponsor.  Both are fantastic!

Peace my friends!

CIC #107 - Happy Mother's Day

Hi everyone!

It's a beautiful weekend here in the DFW area and I have enjoyed laying out with my roomies, chatting the time away.  I'm going to have a nice tan soon and I'm thrilled about that.  What have you guys been up to this weekend?  Anything exciting? 

I have another Cupcake Inspiration card for you today, and we are being sponsored again by Prairie Fairy.

There is a sale going on, from what I understand, so you should head over there and check it out.  This weeks lucky winner will also receive a prize of 5 images of their choice.  Talk about lucky!

Now onto this weeks inspiration photo.  Check it out.

Oh my goodness!  I was so excited when I first saw these.  I love the Asian theme, and the colors are wonderful.  I think I might just need some of these at my next birthday party. lol  Below is the card I created using this photo.

I think I may have found a comparable spot to take my photos at the new house.  The colors may be a bit off, but it is the best photo I got, so far.  I used this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch (#104) and like the results, for my first card in three weeks. lol 

You should head over to the CIC blog to see what the other Sweeties have created for today.  They're absolutely amazing!

Have a wonderful day!

Twisted Sketches #55 - Mom

Hello my people! :)

I've missed being crafty, and visiting all of my "blog friends".  I'm happy to report that I am unpacked, and getting settled into the new place quite nicely.  I should be back to posting on a more consistent basis again.

I'm excited to bring you my Twisted Sketches card for today.  I absolutely love Anam's sketches.  The twist this week is: Green - any how, any way.  I'm sorry if the picture is a bit "different".  I'm still trying to find the best place to take my photos here.  For this weeks sketch, click HERE.

I'm in full Mother's Day card mode right now.  This year just about every person in my office asked for at least one Mother's Day card.  Talk about pressure, lol.  I love the pop of yellow my butterfly brings to this card and I love the papers. 

So, that's it for me today.  Are you ready to be inspired some more?  Head over to the Twisted Sketches blog and check out what the other designers have created for you today.  As always, they're amazing!

Unscripted Sketches #100 & Blog Anniversary!

Hi ya'll!

I'm SO excited to bring you today's Unscripted Sketches project.  We're celebrating not only our 100th sketch, but our 2nd blog anniversary as well.  There's tons of fun stuff happening at the US blog today.  You should head over there to see what's up.  Now, if you're visiting from Suzanne's blog, you're right on track.  If not, you can go to the Unscripted Sketches blog and start from the beginning.

In honor of our anniversary and 100th sketch, this week we have a fabulous sponsor.  Our sponsor this week is Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  These images are just darling, and they were nice enough to let us use a couple for this weeks challenge.  You should head over to their store to see the fabulous stamps they have to offer.  One lucky winner will receive an SCRS rubber stamp.  Hurry, go check them out!

For my project this week, I used Celebrating Chloe.  I love anything Chloe, so it was a no brainer as to which image I was going to use.  Here is my card.

I did a couple things differently this time.  I actually paper pieced the balloons, and I masked her off so that I could stamp the background.  Now, ya'll know I'm not one to fussy cut hardly at all, but it was quite fun, and I love my results.  I think she turned out great!  I embossed my background, added coordinating strips of paper and a sentiment banner and was done.  Very easy to create and very bright and cheerful.

So that's all for me today.  Your next stop on the hop is SarahKaye's blog.  And, before I forget, my clue for the word scramble is C.  Now hop on over to SK's blog for the next clue and to see her fabulous project!

Have a great day!
