~Tubing Audrey~

Here is my card for today - HOW FUN IS SHE!  Now granted we don't do a lot of tubin' here in Alaska (a lil chilly) but back home, it was so much fun just hanging out with friends on the lake.
Now head on over to ANGELA'S to see her fantastic card!!

Here is the hop order in case you get lost along the way:

Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - Round n Round

The challenge this week at Pixie Dust Studio is Round n Round - include something round on your card... the card itself, a button, a brad  or a flower, etc.  I chose to do a round card.  This image is so much fun.  I cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals.  I colored it with copic markers and then dabbed the pocket with denim that I had spritzed with blender solution.  I also added a lil doodling around the edge of the card - to kinda mimic the stitching on the image.

I hope you will play along.  The winner of this challenge gets their choice of an image from Pixie Dust Studio.

Card class with Sherrie Siemens at The Stamp Attic

The night prior to our certification class we were able to take a card making class with Sherrie at The Stamp Attic in Anchorage.  It was so much fun!  
Here are the cards we made.  

I may have to hunt down this set, it is so cute!!!
** you can get this set at I {heart} Papers**
Hehe... I think the perfect sentiment would be "I'm toast without you!"

I love this design.  It is a gift card holder!

Fab Friday Challenge - MONOCHROMATIC

 This week on I {Heart} Copics we were challenged to make a card using colors from ONE Copic color family.  I chose this new image from Pixie Dust Studio - The Pearl Collection.  I used all E's (I think I really did use ALL OF THEM.) 
It was so much fun to do something like this. 

I had to refill about 4 of my markers too!  LOL  They sure need more refilling when there are two of us using them daily.  I don't mind refilling them, except when they burp on me!  hahaha!!  But I did learn that using the antibacterial gel will remove copic marker off your hands.  Now that's a handy tip!

Here's my Cap'n Jack!!!!

I love me some, Cap'n!!!!!!

This is one of the new PDS digis from The Pearl Collection.  
The paper is even called Cap'n Jack - from Rusty Pickle. 
This image is colored with copic markers (mostly the W's.)  
I sponged some distress ink and distressed the edges. 


I do believe that Pixie has a 'thing' for Johnny Depp (That and Edward & Bella), but anyway, this is the cutest set of digis!!!!!

The new images are so much fun!  You have to check out the DT's projects!  (I'll have mine up in a lil bit)
