Not to be outdone by his sister....

Bubba, my 6 year old son, decided that since his older sister had her own blog, that he needed to make cards to put on Mama's blog. Here is his Inky Antics Horse.

He is such a boy!!!!!!! That kid cracks me up.

Victoria Case Challenge #1 *whoo hoo*

This is our first challenge on our new challenge blog for Victoria Case Stamps. I really hope you will play along with us. The Design Team has been working hard, too.

Here is mine... please meet Willy the Worm. He is a free digi from Victoria. *haha free willy* (that still cracks me up) I added some crystal effects to his glasses to make them dimensional.

And here is another one using the same sketch...
My Jacob helped me with this one. He picked the colors and papers for me. We also added some glitter to make the ice cream cone glisten. This image is one of Victoria's new Monster Digistamps.

Carlie's Planner!!! I'm so proud!!

I *heart* my oldest daughter!!!! *giggle* She went on a tour of the middle school the other day and when she came home she was flabbergasted that they had to pay for their planners next year... $10. So she decided she would just make her own. She bought the paper (new Kaisercraft Bohemian Threads) and used a SU chipboard album to create this....

And here is the inside...

Monster Digis at Victoria Case


And such a value! You get the whole set (5 files) for only $5!

Create a card or project with a summery feel. Anything that reminds you of summer will fit this challenge.

However, if you do use a Whimsy image on your creation, which of course is what we would like to see, you will be entered into the drawing twice! So, no Whimsy image you get one chance but use a Whimsy image and you get 2 chances! Sound fun?! Be sure to check out the design team's creations...

Victoria will be hosting a new Challenge Thursday. These challenges will be found HERE. Every Thursday there will be a new challenge. I hope you will join us. The first one is this Thursday, May 28th.

Modern Sugar Blvd. Challenge #3

Here is the sketch for this week's Modern Sugar Blvd. Challenge...

Here is mine using the new digistamp called Cupcake Delight. This is a really fun image and could be used for so many things. That is one great thing about digis... you can resize them to meet your needs. I think a cupcake recipe book might be my next project. :) I'll definitely share that one when I get it completed.

I would love to see what you can do with this sketch. More information can be found on the Modern Sugar Blvd. blog.

New from Victoria Case

Victoria had a new digistamp release. You can see them HERE. Here is my sample. :)

I colored him with copic markers. Rectangle Nestabilities were used to create the layers. The patterned paper is some from Close to My Heart, I believe. The flowers and buttons are from Making Memories and the sentiment is computer generated.

Funky Fairys Challenge - Buttons & Circles

I really enjoyed this challenge. Our theme was Buttons & Circles. I have a big drawer full of buttons. I always forget to pull them out. The white bows are actually buttons, too. The paper is from Funky Fairys Papercrafts. The stamp is from Stampin' up. I used my nestabilities scallop circle die to cut the scallop card. The flowers are from the cutest Noteworthy jars (MM) that I got on Crop

Modern Sugar Blvd. Mini Release Day!!!

These two girls are from the "I love to" line of digistamps from Modern Sugar Blvd. I think this is my favorite line... along with the Mamas. This image is "So Charming" The glasses on her were a separate image. I also added small acrylic circles to give them some dimension. The patterned paper is a download from Funky Fairys Papercrafts. The flowers are Prima and the flower jewels are from Walmart, I think. The small rhinestones are from KaiserCraft. I colored her with my Copic Markers. And the sentiment is from Hanna Stamps.

This one is called "I love my PDA" LOL I *heart* my Blackberry and would be lost without it, so this image made me giggle. The patterned paper is some from my stash and I don't know who it is from. Again, Copic Markers. I added some buttons and a sentiment from Gina K. Designs.

Oh boy did I have fun playing tonight. I received a package from Susana yesterday with some my order of Lockhart stamps and Flower Soft. And tonight I had a few moments to myself to sit and play. This is what I came up with.

I am in love with the Lockhart Patio stamps. They remind me so much of my mom and her garden and flowers. I am making her a little something for Mother's Day with these stamps. :) I don't know if she reads this blog or not, but don't want to give it all away. *wink*

Stamps: Lockhart Patio Lavender, Lockhart Water, Weed, Wait
Paper: GP White, SU Basic Black, SU Lavender Lace, Basic Grey Euphoria
Accessories: Copic Markers, Flower Soft (Lavender), Tacky Glue, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Prima Flowers, Deckle Edge Rectangle Nestabilities, pop dots

Funky Fairys Challenge #15 - Get Well

This week our theme was Get Well. I used the downloadable paper from Funky Fairys called Funky Flowers. I love digital downloads! The stamp is a new Lockhart stamp I just received. I added some Sparkly fluff to the flowers and used the deckle edge rectangle nestabilites.

It was a happy mail day today. I got my Lockhart stamps from Susana and some flower soft. I cannot wait to play.

Doodle Palace - USS Ark

How stinkin' cute is this image??!? Doodle Palace has some fabulous digistamps!

Colored with copic markers. The patterned paper is from Funky Fairys Papercrafts. Embellished with Prima flowers and Kaisercraft rhinestones. I also used my cuttlebug swiss dots folder and my curved rectangle nestabilities. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Copic Organization

This has troubled me for quite some time. I have boxes A B C of the Copic Ciao markers. I am pretty OCD about them staying together in their box families. LOL But I really wanted something a little more accessible than having to go thru each box to find the marker I was looking for. So I thought...

I have a few Pampered Chef Tool Turnabouts on my workbench. I figured it would work to sort my markers by color family. I just followed the chart I printed out off of the Copic Markers site. I love it! Now to make a drawstring bag that I can slip this into and take them to work with me. I know PC makes one for the turnabout (for consultants, at least they use to) but I think I can come up with something.

Just had to share my lightbulb moment.

Modern Sugar Blvd. - Precious Prayers

This is one of the newest digistamps from Modern Sugar Blvd. Isn't she beautiful?!? But there is more to her than a pretty face! There is a story behind her... a story of an amazing little girl... KAYLEIGH ANNE.

All sales from Precious Prayer and from the Sweetnilla line will be donated on an on-going basis to Kayleigh and her family...
