Early Bird....and some more news

Good Morning Everyone ! ! Hopefully you have sun where you are,I do not.LOL.It's cloudy and dreary looking.But there is warm weather on the horizon. 

Today we have a new challenge for you at High Hopes Challenges.
You can have flowers in your image, use flowery paper, or just add some flowers to your card or project.
Just remember that you MUST use a High Hopes stamp to enter the challenge.

For my card today I used Early Bird ..I couldn't help myself and not use this sentiment by AI . It just cracked me up. I also paper pieced the flower stamp,which for the life of me I can't remember the name of it. The papers are from Prima Doodle Deux again. Love this line more than I thought lol.

I used Glossy white and black enamel accents on the flowers and in the corner of the card.

Sure hope you can join us..and look forward to next week ! ! !
It's a NEW RELEASE ,we have sneak peeks and a blog hop for ya ! !

Exciting News...

Today I'm nervous and excited to share with you that I have been asked to Guest design for the next two weeks with  Stamp With Fun Challenges. I was so flattered when Andrea asked me.
 As my own worst critic I didn't think I was good enough to join but I did anyway.LOL. This is such a fun challenge blog so how could I say no. Their challenge today is a sketch challenge.I am a sucker for sketches,I just love them and this one is fabulous. 
I decide to work with a Kenny K image. Loooove her. I finally got around to using Simple Stories paper. The sentiment is actually stickers which I layered onto cardstock.My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The corner metal embellishments is from my stash. The background flourish on my main image is from Tim Holtz.

CLOSE UPS.......


Here's the sketch ...fab isn't it !
I hope you play along and enjoyed stopping by today.

OK I have got to show you this cutie...I fell in love with him immediately . He's a new character from Stampendous called Cowlik. Oh I just love the name too ! He was sooo quick to color as well.I love my copics but some days I just don't have time to spend an hour coloring an image. 

The papers I used are from Prima. I even used the chipboard accent pieces, wood ticket and bling. This was a more simpler card for me that is.I didn't load it up like I usually do lol,but I'm glad to say I like how it turned out .And I can make a quick card and be happy.
