My Notes...



Hello everyone... Today I have a new creations for you and this one is for the following challenges:
Sweet Pea Stamps Challenge ... Theme is "Anything Goes".
SP Color Combo Challenge ... Theme is a Color Combo.
Flutter By Wednesday Challenge ... Theme is "Open Challenge".
Simon Says Challenge ... Theme is "Going Dotty".

I used a blank notebook that I bought at Michaels as my base and papers from my stash. The image is from Sweet Pea Stamps by Ching-chou kuik called Fly Butterfly. I stamped the image and then saved it as a digital image. I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks CS4 and added some glitter. I cut out a butterfly from my Mariposa Matstack by DCWV. I used dotted brown ribbon on two corners and added a sentiment and dots. I think this will make a nice gift for one of my friends.

Happy Birthday Stephanie...



Hello again... I have a new creation that I want to share with you and it is for the following challenges:
I decided to make a birthday card for my daughter Stephanie. Her birthday is August 31st and she is expecting a baby around the same date. I used papers from my stash and my image is from Michelle Perkett called Amore Fairy. I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks and added some color box chalks for highlights. This is my first Joy Fold card and it was very easy to make. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and some of my Nestabilities dies. I added a dragonfly gem, a few pearls and two other gems. My sentiment is inside the card.

Happy Birthday Cowgirl...



Hi everyone... I have a special creation today because I am using one of my very own digital images. Pattie Boop Cowgirl is my creation and is copyrighted. I plan on selling my images in August. I will post more about this once the date is near.
My creation today is for the following challenges:
Well to start out I used my very own digital image called Cowgirl Pattie Boop. I colored Pattie Boop using Adobe fireworks CS4. I made my own template for the cowboy hat and punched holes around it to look like stitching. I made my own paisley design paper and cut it out with one of my scallop oval Nestabilities dies. I used some of my Color Box Chalks to highlight some edges. I created my own sentiment in Photoshop, added a red bow with a cactus charm and added some glitter for sparkle. What do you think?

Miss You...




Hello everyone... I have a new creation today and this one is for the following challenges:
I had so much fun doing this creation. I started out using the sketch from Crafty Catz and my mage from Sweet Pea Stamps called Serene Night by Ching chou-kuik. I colored my image using Adobe fireworks CS4 and cut it out with one of my Nestabilities dies. I mounted my image on blue glitter paper. I used the Ink, Spray and Smash technique found at Just Us Girls and added some glitter to the ink. My corners were made using white pearlized paper and one of my Sizzix dies. I added some Prima flowers with pearls and a sentiment. On the inside of my card I added a smaller version of my main image, more of my paper that I created, a butterfly and two pearls. What do you think?
