I Love You my Friend

Hello everyone. Wow does it seem that the weekend gets "shorter & shorter". I hope that you are enjoying it no matter what. I am showing you a card today featuring another "Baby Bud" stamp... I LOVE these stamps.. I Really mean that too, as I was coloring her I was thinking to my self . "I sure could color a ton of these and find "New styles" for them Every time.. I just purchased this one from the Esty shop over at Baby Bud... If you R new to these you should check them out..:0)
This weeks challenge over at "The Pink Elephant" is a color challenge of Red, Pink & Brown. The best part is that it is being sponsored by "Baby Bud" so I can use it in that challenge as well as the Monthly challenge over at "Baby Bud as well and their theme is "Friend ".

This card was just soo fun for me to make.. Look at my gorgeous DP paper. I got it from "Target" in the $1.00 bend. They had some really cute ones so I picked up a few and will be making cards with them ,, I can't wait :0) and again only $1.00 for a pack of 8. I did the "pleating ribbon" technique ( if that's what's its called?? (   you can see it better in the first pic. ( I got that ribbon from Wal-Mart... I used my Martha Stewart Heart punch boarder in both red and brown card stock. My Flowers I made with the scraps from my DP using my EKsuccess punch and my Martha Stewart leaf punch ( I have had that for a while but don't use it much.
I colored her with my Prisma & OMS. and for her "super sweet head band I used my "Red Sakura" gell pen, and stickles for her ruffles/and shoes. of course she had to have some sparkle :0). also added some bling in my flowers. Used my Nest Tag and distressed the edges with  Tim Holtz "Worn Lipstick" ink I love you Sentiment is from my "Puddle Jumpers" Ella mini set. (I love it) and stamped with Memento Rich cocoa. Then every thing was popped up with tons of pop dots. I hope you enjoy her and have a blessed day.

Making My card Pop!!!

Hi everyone.. Wow it's been a few days since I last posted :0(.. Sorry I had to take care of a few "persona" stuff!!.. But I am back and ready to play and share. Today I want to show my card for this week's challenge over at The Greeting Farm FFF.. This week is to make your card "Pop" with a 3D effect. I choose Miss Anya  Collection-Shopping. I Love this set and even though I have had it for a while this is my "first" card that I have made with any of the stamp is this collection. 

I cut her out 3 times and then popped her up on each other. To make it even more soo I "paper pieced" her shopping bag ( truly a Lady after my own heart.. hehehe.

I  did NOT use any coloring on her clothes or Shoes.. I only colored her skin & hair and of course added a little "stickle" to her gorgeous bow. ( My little DD colored a picture last week for a card she made and she did pretty much the same thing. Only she colored her clothes and hair and left the rest  and it was soo "cute" that I wanted to try.. It's funny that I had to look at my 5 yr old for some inspiration.. :0)

Now for little EXTRA something special. For my DP I used Nikki Sivils 6x6 paper pack of " Ellie's Day Out".. Which went soo perfect with Miss Anya. What makes it special is that Tomorrow (Wed) one of my cards will be "Featured" on Nikki's Blog . I did a card a few weeks back where I used ONLY Nikki Sivils DP and one of the DT saw it and she asked me can she feature my card for her "Monthly" spot light on projects that she finds around Blog land that have at least 80% N.S. on it.. "Are you Kidding me" I asked her over and over again.. between her laughs she said she was NOT and that she "loved" the card and was for certain that she wanted to show case.. YES!! YES!! I said soo if you would like to see it Again (or for the first time :0) Please stop my and leave some LOVE .

3 In 1 with SOG

Sorry if my Post are getting a little "Longerrrrr and Longerrrrrr" just have lots to say these days!!!

Ok here is my 3 "n" 1 for the first challenge over at SOG.. Take one image and use it three different ways. This was a Lot of fun and a great way for my to challenge my self.  (ok this is only 2 soo far!! :0)... I made a card and "detachable" bookmark using Kaylee. I found the tutorial here. I used my very first SOG image.. I think it was 1 year ago that Kristy first gave out this sweet little girl.(Thank You !!!
For the front of the card, I copied Kaylee twice and flipped one soo that it looks like their standing side by side.

Sorry about the bad lighten. I also decorated an envelope to go along with the card.(This is my 3rd..I cut out half of Kaylee with my nesti. you will see that she is not colored just as on the book mark. ( I learned this technique thru a challenge at ??? where else blut SOG (SNR digi day:0))))))) I only wanted to focus on the heart. You will see them colored the same in all 3 images. I said that I challenged my self with this one and I did.. But was it ever soo fun to create, and that is why I love this creativity that I never knew was in me let alone possible.. Anyways!!!!!


Here is a up close view of the from of the card and the bookmark. And please have a look at my flower. Yes I do so love getting a chance to make these and showing them off. And I found my "own" and yes I mean "own" way of making them and when the "nervous" take their correct place I "will" post a.. do I dare say "tutorial".. heheheehe ( just makes me giggle just saying it.. hahahaha. Images was colored with "Prisma Pencils" and OMS. oh and this  was my "first" time coloring Blond hair too... ( I usually only do brunette's and black hair.. But I gave it a try.. not too bad right?? Card stock: can't remember the name right now.. ( did get it from Joann's.. Black car stock: PTI & Bazzil (bookmark). DP, more of my Target paper that I got last year.Flower (me and my Cricut, bling also Target Ribbon: (from a gift set that I won.

This is the Card and the bookmark. Which can be detachable because I used my "perforator"... I love making things besides cards and to combine the two.. WOW.. I have done a "bookmark" card before, but not his size which measures 41/2 x 4 1/2.. so it's just the perfect size for that special friend.. My daughter has already "calmed" it..
