Sketch Girl 15

Time for a new challenge at Sketch Girl! This week's Sketch is so fun and I think you'll love it. Here it is:

And this week our sponsor is:

Phindy's Place is a super adorable digi stamp store. Phindy's Place is offering a $10 Gift Certificate to the winner of this week's challenge.

Here's a little about Phindy...Phindy's Place digital stamps is a new venture for children's book illustrator Philomena O'Neill (aka Phindy). For someone who has always drawn a lot of young children and animals, drawing digi stamps has felt like a natural fit for her. As a professional illustrator, Phindy draws her stamps as detailed and fully realized images. She sees her digital images as a collaboration between two artists - her own imaginative line work art and the crafter's talent and vision in coloring and embellishing that art to create a finished card!

And here is my card:

I used the Easter Joy Digi Stamp from Phindy's Place; PTI Stamps, Ribbon, Button, and Sentiment; and Spellbinder Nestabilities.

Visit the Sketch Girl DT for inspiration:


And our Sketch Girl Guest Designer for the month of March is the very talented Deanne Kuntz.

Fun Week!!!

Can I have your attention please, I've got a couple of announcements to make : )


Now for a little card, but I have to tell you some background information first. I have a terrible miserable cold. I have sneezed at least 30 times today and I've coughed so much my back is aching. So last nite before bed I made a card using the new Papertrey Ink colors Hawaiian Shore. So when I'm sick I always have crazy dreams. Well all I dreamed about was Hawaiian Shore Cardstock...I'd wake up and go back to sleep and start dreaming about it again. I loved this color until I dreamed about it nonstop for hours of fitful I think I'll stick to pink next time! Here's my card:

I used Hawaiian Shore Ink, Cardstock, and wonder it's all I dreamed of!

Paper Garden Projects Challenge

Are you ready for a new challenge at Paper Garden Projects!?! This week's challenge is to make a card, project, or LO and use embossing.

Here is my card:

This is one of my favorite cards ever. It was one of those cards that just came together and you love the finished product....and believe me this doesn't happen often! I used the Cover-A-Card Small Paisley Background Cling Stamp available at Paper Garden Projects. Background Stamps are so fun to use, I suggest trying it!

First of all I stamped my paper using my background stamp. I decided to dry emboss because I stink at using embossing powder! I used my Cuttlebug and the Victorian Folder. I then ran a Papertrey Ink Spring Moss ink pad over the embossing. I love how the embossing looks against the background stamp. I handmade my flower and stamped some leaves and added my sentiment. I also used Basic Grey Origins patterned paper available at the PGP Store.

I used the beautiful Spring Cut-Outs, felt flower, and embossed butterfly from Sharing Memories Scrapbooking. They were the perfect touches for my card and made creating so easy.

DCRU Tuesday Challenge

Time for a new challenge at the DCRU DT Blog. This week's challenge is to make a card, project, or LO and create a paper flower to use on your creation. So fun since flowers are everywhere these days.

Here's my card:

And a close-up of my flowers:

This card is a bit more distressed and "messy" than I usually make. So I wasn't sure about it at first, but decided to stick with it. I used Basic Grey Origins Patterned Papers, Mays Art Ribbon, Dew Drops, Unity Stamps, and Spellbinder Nestabilities Large Scalloped Border. All of these products are available at DCRU.

Check out the DCRU DT Blog for beautiful inspiration from the DT!

I've also got 2 more cards to share. The first is an Easter creation that I just love using some new Papertrey Ink stamps:

And a simple "Thank You" card:

It has been beautiful in the mountains of Kentucky the past few days. And suppose to be near 70 degrees tomorrow, can't wait to spend time outdoors!
