Hello Friend -- Outlawz Progressive Freebie

Hello, friend!  I have a quick post, using the Outlawz progressive freebie for this month, a new release paper from We Are 3 Digital Shop, and the current sketch at the Outlawz:
This is Nadia, by MMedel, and is the current freebie at the Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge. I colored her with Copic markers.

I used the current sketch at the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge to create this card.  Here's the sketch: 

Papers on this card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  They are the Watermelon papers, and are a new release this month. The sentiment is also a new release.  It is one of the Itty Bitty Summer sentiments

That's it for this post.  I'm off to make supper, and enjoy a family stroll -- Shaun, Winter (the Golden Retriever), and myself.

Wine O'Clock Birthday Wishes -- for Sasayaki Glitter

It's the 15th of the month, and that means it's time to feature Oldies but Goodies at Sasayaki Glitter Stamps. We're re-visiting The Boys this month, and I chose to color up and create with Wine O'Clock



Wine O'Clock reminds me of that saying, "it's 5 O'Clock somewhere!".  I colored Wine O'Clock with Copic markers, and fussy cut it,  then set out to find some wine related papers to create with.  I found this wine glass paper at Pixel Scrapper.  The wine glass die cuts are a die from Technique Tuesday.  The tag behind Wine O'Clock is from Close To My Heart.  The banner that I stamped the sentiment on is from Diamond Press. 

There will be other Oldie but Goodie boy images featured today at the Sasayaki Glitter Blog, so I hope you check it out here.  You'll find even more great inspiration in the Sasayaki Glitter Facebook Group

Hello Summer -- for Di's Digi Designs Challenges

It's Saturday, and it's time for a new challenge at Di's Digi Designs Challenges.  The theme for the next 2 weeks is "add a sun".  That's a great theme for so close to the start of summer!

I used the darling Poppy Mouse to create this:

I colored Poppy Mouse with Copic markers.  I used several sizes of Spellbinders dies to create the card base and layers.  The sun paper and ombre shades were found at Pixel Scrapper.  The 'Hello Summer' sentiment is a new release at We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of the sentiments found in the Itty Bitty Summer sentiment set. There are 8 sentiments in the set.

The crinkle ribbon is from a company that is no longer in business  -- 3 Girl JAM.  Fortunately, I still have quite a stockpile!

I cut out the sun on my Silhouette Cameo with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store. That sun is spreading warmth and good cheer to that adorable Poppy Mouse

The current challenge at Di's Digi Design Challenges run through June 28, so I hope you find time to join us!  I'd love to see your sunny creations, and we've got the cutest digis you could win for prizes -- like this one!

Hello Friend, Hello Friday -- for Bugaboo Stamps

It's Friday, It's Friday, It's Friday!  That means there's a new freebie available at Bugaboo Stamps!  I love coloring flowers, so I really like this week's Freebie Friday!



This is Flower Pots, colored with Copic markers.  I used a sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday sketch to construct this card.  Here's the sketch: 

Papers for this card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  I gathered from several different collections.  I used 32 papers from Bird's View  (shades of blue and green). The pink paper is from the Peonies Ballet collection.  The 'Hello Friend'  is part of the Itty Bitty Summer sentiment set.  The metal dragonfly is from my stash.

Summer Rose -- at Catch the Bug

It's Oldie but Goodie day over on the the Catch the Bug Blog, and I always enjoy posting on Thursday, as Bugaboo Stamps has enough wonderful Oldie but Goodie stamps to keep me going for months -- probably years!  I found this beautiful Rose Watering Can that I just had to color up in celebration of summer. 



I colored the Rose Watering Can with Copic Markers.  Isn't it pretty?  I just love a rusty watering can.  It looks just like one I have here at home.  

The papers and sentiment on this step card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  They are both new releases in June.  The papers are from the Cone Flower Love paper collection (I used 3 of them on this card), and the sentiment is part of the Itty Bitty Summer sentiments. 

I hope you have time to check out what the other designers made for Oldie But Goodie Thursday.  Then, come back to the Catch the Bug Blog tomorrow for Freebie Friday.  You won't be disappointed!  Pick up the freebie and enter it in Saturday's challenge!  Visit that Catch the Bug Blog everyday for inspiration and fun.  Don't forget about the Bugaboo Stamps Fan Group on Facebook, too!

Hello Friend -- for We Are 3 Digital Shop

Hello, Friend!  Did you know today is National BFF Day?  It seemed like the right day to make a card that celebrated friendship, so that's just what I did!

I've been looking for an excuse to color up the beautiful Coneflower image found in the We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of this month's New Releases.  Coneflower comes in a black & white version, a pre-colored version, but also a faux metallic version (looks embossed).  I colored up the black & white version and paired it with the new Coneflower Love papers to create this: 


I used Copic colors on the Coneflower image that would match the Coneflower Love papers, but I think the Coneflower image could be colored in many different color options.  The sentiment, also a new release this month, is from the Itty Bitty Summer Sentiment Collection

I used the sketch from this time's sketch at The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge to help me with this card.  Here's the sketch: 

As you can see, I followed it pretty closely.  I like to work from sketches, and often play at The Outlawz.
