This week's challenge is "Digital Get down". we are challenge break out our TGF digital stamps. ( These one just happened to be 2 Gorgeous Freebies that where given to everyone that follows. How "Koool " is that..

This one shows the sparkle and glitter in her bow and ribbon

1st  up is our little Miss Anya peeking out of her little basket. how sweet is she!! I used my PTI "Egg Hunt" paper pack .. and How Gorgeous are those PURPLE butterflies LOVE IT!!!!! she is colored with my Prisma and OMS. I colored her Bow and  ribbon and added LOTS of stickles to the entire Ribbon.Sentiment is from PTI. stamped with Memento Rich coca. I used some "diamond dimensionals" from Jolee's and my Butterfly and that beautiful sheer "purple" ribbon has been in my stash since CHA of last year. Love that I used up a lot of my "older" supplies.

Celebrate Easter

Hi everyone I wanted to share a few Easter cards that I have been working on.. The first one features my sweet little "Easter Anya from.... Yes!!!! you guessed it The Greeting Farm.. Isn't she happy with her basket full of Easter eggs. (that she found all by her self hehehe)

I used the sketch from last week's Crafty Ho's sketch challenge.. I thought it was  a great sketch and would be perfect for my card.

I colored her with my Prisma and OMS and added lots of stickles to her little "bunny ears", so that it could really stand out. I used lots of PTI for this card.. Including the Card stock the DP is from there "Egg Hunt" collection paper pack. ( had it since last year. but still Love it and can use it again and again.. Ribbons from Michael's (I think???. Stamp sentiment is from "Craft Lounge" Pea-Nut Bunny set. that I stamped with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink. and my little "eggs" embellishment is from "Jolee's Boutique.

This week's challenge at TGF WOW ( Which One Wednesday) challenge is to NOT use any Pink.. So I went with "Orange". I think that is the hottest color for this spring and summer. ( Lots of the kids at my DD's prom where wearing Orange/Peach and it was just Gorgeous.

My Daughter had her Senior Prom this weekend, so you know just how busy and Crazy thing have been around my house for the last few weeks.. It was soo amazing being a part of that with her. and seeing the excitement and joy from her when she was all put together by her team of "glam squad"... But I am  happy to have thing back to normal again.. I have a few weeks left until her graduation.. But for know I am too happy to be back in my little scrap area..

Anyways.. want to share my card with you today.. This is Ebony from The Greeting Farm.. Ebony has been on the TOP of my wish list for a long time.. and so when she was available for a great price of $5.00 at the Farmers Market a few weeks ago I was only too happy to snatch her up before she was all gone.

Don't you just LOve her in her little Skirt and super cute t-shirt and converse tennis shoes.. and leggins.. Soo in style with her out fit. and not to mention her very stylish hair cut. She was colored with Prisma and OMS.and I added stickles to her headband and skull on her T-Shirt.
 I wanted to play along with the color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe whom are being sponsored by TGF.. ( Two for the price of one hehehe).
I made this Circle card with kraft card stock from PTI. I got to use some more of my Gorgeous paper from Cosmo Cricket- Early Bird. Ribbon is from Michael's. Pearl is "Basic Gray". Flower is from Jolee's Boutique. (I got them from Wal-Mart) and pop dots to make Ebony really stand  out.

Time for This Week's Thursday Challenge with BLD

Good Afternoon everyone... I have been missing in action a lot lately..As to why I am a  little late with my post for this week's challenge over at BLD.  I have been doing a lot of running with my Daughter with helping her out because she is having her "Senior Prom" this weekend. eeehhhhhhh SO EXCITED :0))))
We got everything already from her "Dress" to her Shoes and hair and make up (we have been trying out different looks). I have to pick her up from school to get a few more accessories for her and then I think we should be set !!!!!!

OK so back to our regular schedule program. hehehe; here is this week;s color challenge and my card using "Puddle Jumper Kyle". I was really excited with this week's color challenge because I got to use this "super" cute new DP that I got from Michael's last week. It's by  Amanda Blu I believe this pack is called "Bonnie Blu".. It's has some fabulous papers in there including Flocked, foiled and flat, I LOVE them all and I got it on clearance for $3.99 ( Love Clearance don't you ;0).

I colored "Kyle" with my Prisma and OMS. Lori has a technique where she leaves the hair with No colors and it's always awesome to me .. Sentiment is from my TGF stamp set I stamped with Memento "Rich Cocoa" .

Card stock is PTI, I used some twine and a button from my stash. Had these large gold bards and thought they would bring out lots of the colors in the DP, ( Did I mention that I really love this paper.. look at that plaid.  Hope you like it too..

A few weeks ago I was the Lucky winner over at La La Land crafts for the month of February and the prize was a  stamp of my choice. Soo I was soo excited when I got the little "cupcake cutie" in my mail yesterday.
Say hello to "Sugar & Spice" Marci.  and in case you are wondering she is in Rubber But you can get her in digi format from the shop also.

Is she not the sweetest. just look at her little face she is "sugar & spice and everything nice.  and I think that Yellow is most defiantly her color hehehe. I colored her with my Prisma pencils and OMS. and added LOTS of stickles to her headband, socks and her yummy cupcake.

Card stock is PTI, I knew that my DP would go perfect with this stamp. its' "Echo Park" Little Girl Collection. they are some gorgeous paper in this sample 6 x 6 pack which you can purchase from Claudia & Co.  This is one sheet double sided soo it was perfect I just love the cupcakes on one side just as much as the gorgeous yellow hearts on the other. Cupcake brads are from K&Co. I found those at Wal-Mart. and the sentiment is from a stamp set that I got a while back but thought the sentiment was just perfect for the card and image. and of course lots of pop dots to make ever thing pop.

Something New with my Guy Ian

Hi Everyone.. It's Wednesday, boy!!! this week is just getting away from me "pretty fast". We got home yesterday from our 'weekend visit of family, friends, and lots of good times. We left LA 4:00 am yesterday soo that our kids were able to make it in time for school. So I was "jet lagged or should I say "car lagged yesterday and much of today.. I did spend the afternoon catching up on a few cards so I want to show your my card showcasing. "My Guy Ian" from The Greeting Farm.

I was soo Happy when I saw March's Farmers market over at  TGF. Once a Month they have a "farmers" market where a few stamps ( never know which one until the day of ) at a special sale price, And that is where I purchased him (he came in a set of Two and 6 sentiments)...and several others that just soo happened to be on the top of my  wish list.. Soo Make sure you head over to TGF blog and see when the next Farmers Market will take place.. I know that you will see some new or favorite stamps that you will want to "snatch" up.
Back to my card and this week's challenge over at TGF Farm Fresh Challenge which is "Something New". So My Guy Ian is my newest stamp set. and it is the first time I got to stamp him on my  PTI white card stock stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. and of course I colored him with my Prisma pencils and OMS.
I used this week's schedule from Crazy 4 Challenges

I wanted to keep it very simple because it is a "Masculine" card. My DP paper is from "My Minds Eye"-Fine & Dandy True Blue Collection" I just love this paper pack. soo versatile and "gorgeous". Card Stock is from PTI. Buttons from Walmart. I used my EKSuccess small scallop punch. some brads. Sentiment is from stamp set and lots of pop dots to make everything pop.
