Stamping for fun on Saturday!

Happy Saturday!  Hope everyone is having a terrific weekend!  I've got another "just for fun" card for you today! 

I played along with 2 challenges this time:

CPS Sketch Challenge

Creative Card Crew punches challenge

The stamps and scraps from my last card were still sitting out on the table this morning so I figured I might as well use them.  The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I just absolutely love this line of designer paper (you'll probably see it again in the next week or so because I left it out on my stamp table).  The sentiment stamp is from the Paper Pretties set "Sealed With A Kiss".
I punched the edges of the brown cardstock with a Martha Stewart border punch and then finished it off with some Prima flowers and Zva Creative pearl flourishes.
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

What is this world coming to?

Can it be...FIVE blog posts in one week.  I can't remember the last time I had so many cards to share.  I've been stamping for fun this week, just trying to get back in the stamping groove.
For today's card, I played along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #97.  (I enjoy stamping so much more when I just stamp for requirement, just stamping because I love to stamp!).

 For my card I used the super fun Paper Pretties set, "Sealed With A  Kiss".  This set has sentiments perfect for Anniversary, Valentine's Day and more.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Flutterby and more!

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a great week.  Today I have another card to share with you.  I used inspiration from 3 different challenges to create this one.

Flutterby Wednesday Challenge:  Purple, Orange and Black
Cooking It Up with Katie:  Girly, Lilac and a Bow
Midnight Madness:  Sketch challenge

For my card I used Paper Pretties Garden Fairy Katie.  I think she is the sweetest fairy image I have ever seen.  I fell in love with her the second I laid eyes on her!

Because the sketch didn't leave a lot of room for a sentiment, I even decorated the inside of my card!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you all have a terrific weekend!

Challenge Fun!

Happy Thursday!  Hope everyone is having a great week.  I found a little time to play in my stamp room this week.  I have been having a blast playing along with some of my favorite challenges!  As crazy as this sounds, I have made 5 cards in the past 2 days.  I'm spreading out my projects and only sharing 1 a day though, so that my poor neglected blog feels the love, LOL.

For today's card I played along with this week's SCS sketch challenge #304  and with the Color Throwdown color challenge #116 for this week.  I absolutely LOVE Pirate Cooper.  I think he is the cutest pirate around! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I have lots more to share this week so be sure to check back!  I hope you all have a terrific day!

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are all having a great week!  The Paper Pretties challenge this week is about about being square!  Make a SQUARE card or project.   We'd love for you to play along. One random challenge participant this week will win the Paper Pretties set "Game On". You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! Please be sure to mention our challenge and link back to the Paper Pretties blog in your project posting. When uploading to SCS or PCP please use keyword PWC125. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of the challenge post on the Paper Pretties blog!

For my card, I used the newly released set "Tis the Season Sophia".  I think she is absolutely adorable.  I just recently got the basic Copic airbrush tool.  This image was the very first one that I tried it out on.  I definitely need a lot of practice but it is a fun little toy to play with.  I've never been very good at sponging backgrounds so hopefully I can learn how to get the same effect using the airbrush.   I will definitely be playing with it again very soon!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a great day!

Paper Pretties Monday Whatnots...What's No To Love!

Happy Monday!   I hope everyone had a terrific weekend!  It is Monday so that means it is time for Paper Pretties Monday Whatnots ...What's not to love!  We have 2 new ARTish digi images this week:

Go Go Gordon (Isn't his candy corn car just adorable!)

Both of these adorable new digi images are available in the digi stamp section of the Paper Pretties store!

For my card I used Go Go Gordon!  I LOVE the candy corn car!  Totally adorable!  I paired Gordon up with the Happy Halloween sentiment from Wiskers Sophia.  I used the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
