embellishments match.

I never understood the game of golf. Don't get me wrong I know the rules, and how it is played. I just can not stand the heat. So I think that makes me avoid the game. My Darling FIL is an avid golfer, me not so much. I could probably be someones caddy but that is the extent of it. {smiles}

Tuesday Template 7/27/10

Hopefully this weeks sketch will be a little more challenging for you. Please be sure to post your comments and let me know if you were able to play along.
My sample card is done with the new Mice Day set from the New Inspiration Catalog. I also used the fancy curles for one of the background layers. Then I impressed the impressibilities die with the snowflakes. I colored him with my new copics and finished by cutting the image out.

Wishing you all the Joy in the world.

I struggle with collages but this card we made at seminar is just wonderful. I, of course, was scared to try it since I feel this is my weak spot but it was really easy.

Have you ever noticed that when you have kids you start talking different. Like everything ends with a

y, horsey, doggy, beddy, and bippy. Seriously, who are we kidding? If our kids grew up talking like that we would seek professional help. LOL!

Well, this is my notey..... Oh, well I just can not break the habit. Hopefully my kids will never talk like me.

I paired this cute spring friend with the Just like Dad Wing it collection. I wanted to use this paper so I coordinated his tye to match. I also borrowed a sketch from the New Angel Company Catalog.

Birthday Wishes

I think this guy is terribly cute, even if he is a alien. I used prismacolor pencils to color him and paired him with Miss Moxie soar with it collection. Do you have any stamps that are only cute to you? Or maybe I just have it wrong maybe everyone thinks this guy is cute.

Boots - Seminar Make n Tak

I do not know about you but the stickles on this card are my favorite. I would have never thought to use them this way, but by scoring two lines and placing them inside it is just stunning. This is another card we made at seminar.

Sketches cards have been on the simple side lately. Sorry, if I have not challenged you. Simple cards come with ease, it helps me focus on what I am trying to highlight. :o)

This week I wanted to highlight the Hip Hop FWIC paper collect. I love the rich colors and fun spin. I paired this up with an image of a frog, of course. This image and sayings comes from the Joy, found set. Check it out here. I used my copics to color the image then the blender to lighten the color.

Fibi or Lilly?

I am not sure if this is Fibi or Lilly but I know that it is one of my favorite new Mabelle sets. This just one of the cute images in this set. Mabelle was unable to make it to seminar so she sent us this set, isn't that nice. I mean this women is just the kindest person. I wish everyone had a Mabelle in their life.

August Yet?

A little something set is for everyone, it has it all. It includes images, sayings and a background stamp. You can not beat the value in this one.
This is another card we made at seminar.

My Son

I had to share both of these pictures. The first is to show you that my boy is a sweetie. See his Dad was installing a ceiling fan in his room. And he knew that I was trying to take pictures to post on my blog. So he got a light and came into my stamp room to help. Now, I want to tell you he is 5, and he thought of this all on his own. Sorry, but makes this Momma happy. {great big grin}.

Now, here is the sample that I took after dh got the electric turned back on and I had some light.

Funny how kids think.

Greatest Dad was a featured set in April, now if you missed it you can order it from the new catalog. That is right it made it into the catalog. I love sets like this since I always need more masculine cards.

I think I might actually start to understand Photoshop. LOL! I have only been working with it for over a year. I really is not my favorite program, but the layers are starting to make sense. {smiles}

Here is another card done with my favorite new set Blossoms and Blessings. I love how easy it is to color this image with the Copic markers. I really thing these markers could make all work look awesome.

Christmas in July

In keeping with the Christmas in July theme here is another sample. I just quickly colored him using copic markers, layered and punched the flower. Simple, Smart and Sophisticated.

Alien - Strange Encounters

This little Alien is so uber cute that I can hardly stand it. I mean I have a hard time layering him since I do not want to take away from him. LOL! I know I obsess about my stamps a little too much. But really don't you just have to have him?

Cowboy Trades

Trades are such a hard thing for me to do. I want to wow people but then I get overwhelmed and fall flat. Here is the trade I did for seminar in June.

Non Traditional Christmas Card

The Emma SWIC is a pretty accent to this simple Christmas card. We made these at seminar and I love the look of them. I would not normal associate these colors with Christmas, but it gives me a vintage feel.

What do you think?

Roses or Weeds

I have been diligently working in my stamp room, trying to decide what stays and what goes. Here is the dilemma I keep running into... What is a flower to one is a weed to others.
What I mean is.... I may think that this or that has no use but others may find a need. Then it makes me think that we live in a society that wastes too much. Then I end up keeping everything. ARGH!
How do you handle getting rid of your pretties? Especially, when your kids are saying renew and reuse, mom.

Here is my sample:

I was thinking of my dear friend Melinda when I created this card. See she loves dragonflies. I think they are pretty cool too, they fly around my yard at night so I get to see them dance in the breeze. Ahhh! summer.

Christmas Place card

In keeping with the Christmas in July theme, here is a cute little place card. We made these cuties at seminar. You can fill them with a flower or candy, for a fun treat at your next get together.
We colored it with Prismacolor pencils then blended it with Oderless Mineral Spirits and blunts. Again this is using the Emma SWIC, which is my favorite.

Blossoms and Blessings

This is a close up of the double sided new collection from the Angel Co. it is called Emma. It is so luscious, I have paired it with the new cardstock collection the Caboodles set F. I used ribbon and scrapper floss to highlight the two sided cardstock.

Here is the where I used Copic markers to color the flower and leaves. I love these marker, you can really shade and make the images come alive.

The flowers from this set are simply gorgeous. I can not wait to play more.
