Inside Out Challenge at Your Next Stamp

I've used Rosie Rabbit Gift from Your Next Stamp for this simple pull slider card.

The inside was kept very quick and simple by just stamping the main image on the bottom corner of the inside and using the second sentiment stamp.

Happy New Year with a Pay it Forward Challenge

What better way to get the creative juices flowing than with a challenge/labour of love?

I "fell into" the Facebook "Pay it Forward" challenge.  No hardship... just a perfect excuse to create something for someone and maybe personalize it and send it off to brighten their day.  One of my favourite things to do.

One of my recipients is a lovely lady and "mom" to not one, but two big Great Danes (one being a young, brindle pup).  As soon as I saw the Jess and her Great Danes image by Digi Doodles Studios I knew I HAD to have it (of course I couldn't decide this during their sale lol) 'cause it would be perfect (even tho' my friends' dogs' ears are "au naturel" rather than cropped).

Coloured with my Copics.

Anniversary Card with Tiddly Inks

I needed a perfect image for my parents' anniversary coming just after Christmas so chose Tiddly Inks Garden Wedding.  Love colouring up these images and so glad I have time again in my life that I can just colour for fun.  

Coloured with my trusty Copics and decorated with old, retired Christmas (shhhh, don't tell my parents 😉) paper and dies from my stash.

I'm looking forward to being able to colour up more Tiddly Inks images and glad that I'll still be able to... 1) 'cause I've got quite a few in my "arsenal" now haha  (and of course most of 'em are printed and ready to colour) and 2) much as Christy is closing her large website, she's not going anywhere.  There will still be an awesome FB group and some of the favourite images will be moved to a smaller Etsy store and will be added to from time to time.

There is one last challenge on the blog so I thought I'd enter this card. 

Hope my parents like the card.

Ice Hockey

Here is a card I made for a friend who loves hockey.  Wait... I love hockey and am always on the search for a good hockey image I can colour up and this one was just perfect! 

Coloured with my copics of course.  Papers are digital papers purchased on Etsy

Image is from The Paper Shelter and called Ice Hockey.

I am entering this in the Christmas Break - Anything Goes Challenge at The Paper Shelter.

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I can post the card now that my husband has received it!

When I saw this image I knew it "needed" to be monochromatic with a touch of colour :-) .  So here is Bugaboo Stamps, Love Monsters on a very big card (full sheet of cardstock scored in half).

Coloured with copics.

I am entering it into the "Love is in the air" challenge on the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.

Thanks for looking!

Peppermint Betty

This pretty image is Peppermint Betty, the February Progressive Challenge at SBS Friends Facebook Group.

The challenge was to use at least two decorative papers (see those two little pieces lol?  I really didn't want to detract from the cute image), the sentiment, an embellishment and NO red.  Ohmigawd how hard was it to not colour Candy Canes with the traditional red?!  I started out thinking I'd go monochromatic with the Warm Greys and maybe a pop of colour (the Candy Canes and maybe the heart) but... I got sidetracked lol.  I like the blue and green combination but totally not what I'd originally intended.  Might have to play again :-).

Thanks for looking!
