Pink Cat Studio --Mariska's challenge:-)

I had waited for my order for my Pink Cat Studio stamps to be able to be in Mariska's challenge/Pink Cat Studio...
I decided to go with a baby boy card since I'm the mom of three boys I felt comfortable with the blue papers/theme:-)
I used howdy little partner and the baby boy with the cowboy hat on from my new Pink Cat Studio set . I used Bazzill CS in Apricot, The DP is from Little Yellow Bicycle called Baby Safari.
I colored the image with my copics on neenah paper, used my Momento black ink for the image, and momento summer sky ink.
I had masked the baby image and sponged the sky with the blue momento ink, and a green SU ink for the grass.
The Howdy partner is cut from my nestabilities and I popped it on the card, I also stamped the baby image a few times and also on the DP to layer the hats, and I cut out the baby's hat/head and popped him onto the card, the little bears hat is popped too:-) I was having fun layering at this piont:-) the little bees are Pink Cat Studio too and I cut them out colored them and added dimensional glaze and popped them onto the card, I did sew on the orange DP but you can't really see it, but It's the first time I got to pull my Janome mini sewing machine out to "play"
I used a small piece of PTI cardstock and ran it through my cuttle bug folder to emboss in the circles and ran over it with the blue ink.
The photo corners were from the DP pad Baby safari I thought it just added a bit to the picture so I left them.

Off to finish another card .....

Basic Grey Challenge


Today's card is for the Basic Grey Challenge @

I'm really enjoying getting involved in the different challenges, kinda forces me to look around and pull things I have out to use that I may not have thought of:-) and I feel like I am part of something, weird I know but trust me it's just what I need right now:-)

So I used their Porcelain DP as my something of the Basic Grey line for my card and I used Ivy Bazzill card stock, Martha Stewart Border punch for the end, A Leanne Ellis design by Sugar Nellie for the image stamped in Memento Ink and colored with my copics, I ended up turning the sketch sideways for the layout and I used a 5x7 card format:-) I'm done, I love it, and now off to make dinner!

Flutter By Wednesday

Ok I deceided to join in the fun of Danni's Flutter By Wednesday Challange! The Challange is to not use DP on the card, so I got my cuttlebug folder out and used three colors of PTI cardstock, the stamp is an outlines stamp, the saying is by "My sentiments exactly" I used my nestabilities scalloped circles, I colored the Butterfly with my copic markers and added stickles to it! I sponged the edges with Versa Magic Mango Madness:-) and I had a blast today having "fun"!! I hope everyone likes my first attempt at a challenge:-) I had a problem with the lighting and my camera and it's the best i can do right now.
