Happy Saturday Friends,
I've got two projects up today. First, is the newest Unscripted Sketch challenge card. This is a very versatile sketch. I can easily see it working for a scrapbook layout. The DP is from this year's Valentine's stack from DCWV. I will be sending this card to my Great Nephews (2 & 4 years old).
Stretch N Bubbles. This adorable tree is named Dotted Tree and you can get it for only $1.00 this week...then it goes back to regular price.
I paper pieced the tree rather than color it in. I printed the image twice - once each on green and brown. I did use some copic T1 around the edges to give the image some definition. The sentiment is from a set by Autumn Leaves named "Sentiment Circles." The hearts are Rain Dots from Fiskars. I dotted Glossy Accents on the tree berries and around the scallops for some added dimension

How's this for inspiration? I must say, I am loving the inspirational pieces that our talented DT members are designing. They are as beautiful as the projects!
This is the new challenge up over at Do You Stack Up? We have two sponsors this week. You can win 3 stamps from Pink Gem Designs or 7 digis from Bugaboo Stamps. Go on over and check out the gorgeous pink projects we created for this week.
Here is mine. I used the Giraffe image from Pink Gem. Isn't she adorable? I colored her with copics R81, R83 & R85. I used YR20 for the yellow. I added stickles for the sparkle. The flat back pearls were white until I colored they with YR20! I popped my giraffe off the page for added dimension.

Today's challenge up at Do You Stack Up is all about Distressing. That's the phrase --so run with it to create a project to submit to the challenge. There are some more great prizes to win this week! This image is from Whoopsie Daisy who designs some of the most adorable digis around.
I colored our little ballerina with copics and added some stickles to her bodice. Then I went a little heavy with the embellies, just everything I saw I loved and had to use. HAHA, it's hard to stop! Anyhow, I am pleased with how it turned out. My DT sisters used selected images from the Woopsie Daisy site. You will be amazed at the beautiful projects these images inspired. Please come over and check them out and DYSU!

We are expecting a huge snowstorm tonight. YUCK!! I really hate the snow. All it does is cause problems, accidents and bad backs. One day I am going to retire to Florida and never have to deal with snow again!! One Day...
Alison has a new dollar digi up over at Stretch 'N Bubbles. Isn't he cute hiding there in the grass? You can pick him up this week for only $1.00. He will only last for one week at $1.00, so go and grab him quickly!
Have a wonderful day and don't forget to visit the new challenge blog Do You Stack Up on Thursday for some great inspiration and prizes!!

Notice that this gal is wearing short shorts....well, that wouldn't do for my manager since she is not allowed to wear these at work! HAHA. I paper pieced the image and gave the heroine a skirt instead. In fact, all parts except her skin and hair are paper pieced. The rest is colored with copics. Just another way to show you the versatility of digi stamps!
I had the whole staff sign the card and she loved it!
Have a great day everyone...Stay Warm!!

Today is the first challenge at DO YOU STACK UP?
All the design team members are using images from Di's Digi Downloads. Each one of her images are absolutely adorable. My image is named Birthday Bear. Isn't he adorable? I made this card for my 2 year old nephew, Ethan. I colored him with copics and then added some stickles on the gifts for a little pizazz.
You have one week to submit a project to the blog for a chance to win. I just know it will be so much fun. Please go check out my DT sisters and get some inspiration from a group of fabulous designers!
Have a great day!! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate every one of you!!

The new year brings with it some new artistic challenges for me. This is my first post as a member of Priscillastyles new design team. I am excited! This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge which is presented on Priscilla's blog. It is a weekly challenge blog with loads of uber talented designers and great prizes. I hope you can find the time to check it out!
The beautiful digi image is named Angel Nights and can be found here in Priscillastyles store. I colored her with copics. Then added loads of stickles to her wings for some real glitz. I used Prima flowers and Say It With Pearls Swirls.

This is the newest Dollar Digi up over at Stretch N Bubbles. As you know, Alison keeps it up for about a week. I just love this image. This adorable little mouse is named Cheesy Cake! You can find him here in the store. Grab him for only $1 -- next week it will be back at the regular price.
The DP is from DCWV and I thought it was so cute to use kitty cats as a background for a mouse! I used a totally different color palette than I normally would use. This is pink, grey and green. It looks very nice in person...I couldn't quite get the photo to show it's true colors.
I colored the image with Copic N greys. Then added some stickles to his cute little ears, nose and feet. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.
Oh, and I know that it is supposed to be cheese, but I LOVE CHOCOLATE CAKE!!! So as the artist, I took some poetic license. LOL
Don't forget Thursday is the first DO YOU STACK UP CHALLENGE!!
Have a great one!
