Ok, I figured if she was gonna start doing challenges and sharing her creations, that she could have her own blog.
Go, leave her some love!!
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.

This is the first challenge I have finished on the SOA site. It was fantastic, SOA reached their goal!!!! What a great cause! I'm happy to be part of it. The image is one of the Victoria Case for SCACD.. FOREVER FRIENDS. The paper (isn't it yummy???) is Airy Fairy from Kaisercraft. I also added some flower soft to the flower centers.

Victoria was the sponsor this week over at Sketch Saturday. Their sketches are great and are the perfect boost when I'm in a rut.

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

HOW CUTE ARE THESE?????
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. If you choose to play along and don't use a Whimsy image you will still have a chance at the prize. 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...

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.

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.

We were given specific images to use on this challenge, but got to design it "our way". I think this lil girl and her bird are adorable. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey Euphoria. The flowers are from Prima. The sentiment is one from Toodles & Bink. Oh yeah, there are some Bella Baubles on there too. They are fun!!!

This is such a wonderful combination. Victoria has designed 9 stamps for SCACD. They are beautiful designs. I think you will love them all.
I'd like for you to meet Belle...
And this is Tea for Two!

The background paper is from Basic Grey Euphoria. I colored her with copic markers and added a little shimmerz to her wings and the stars. The nestabilities are the curved rectangles.
The theme this week on the Whimsy Challenge Blog is FLOWER POWER. I used this darling Emma stamp. The paper is from Adornit! The flowers are from my fabulous Prima Pillar I bought on a recent trip to Anchorage. I use my Nestabilities, too.

Better hop on over to the Modern Sugar Blvd. blog and check out the 'sweetness' there. Here is a card I did with one of the Mamas. Isn't she chic?
Saturday, May 09, 2009
Here is mine. I used the new Doodler Image called I'M HERE from MSB. Isn't she sweet?! Colored with copic markers. Layers created with Nestabilites and the patterned paper is from Adornit. Also added a few flowers and a pearl center.

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

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.

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