Back from the dead....Me, not Riley

Sorry for not posting lately, I wish I were laying on the couch eating bon-bons all week like my friend, Riley, seen here but instead, I had fever, chills, a stuffy head, sore throat and killer headache - otherwise known as the flu!! ..oh yeah, and a cute little 3.5 yr old boy at my side during the day -

Okay, Okay, enough about me and onto the card!
These Riley stamps are so much fun to color.

Excuse my attempt at sewing on a card, I am still trying to get the hang of it. This sketch came from Leigh O'brien's blog - the link can be found my Be My Valentine post.

Here's a shot of the copics I used.

Supplies: Riley couch -Hannah Stamps, Yum - Stampendous (cupcake set); Paper - Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Basic Grey - Bittersweet; Ink - Memento; Accessories - Copics, 3-D foam tape, Nesties, sewing, ribbon - creative impressions, corner rounder, slot punch - SU

Valentine - Double Challenge!

Happy Thursday!! The kids are off school tomorrow, so I am gettin' my scrap on tonight!! :)
This little Valentine cutie was made for two SCS challenges!!

Just Call Him "Timmy"

Okay, so I managed to stay true to my word - no pink, no green!! I promise it has nothing to do with the Gators win over OU last night...neither does the blue and orange color scheme....LOL!!

This cutie robot from the Stampendous Love Robotz set! I picked him up last weekend on my shopping trip to LSS. I made this card for my neighbors little boy. He is having his 4th party tomorrow and my boys are going to make s'mores along with the other kids! What a cute party idea! I stamped him on Whisper White and colored him using my PrismaColor pencils and Gamsol - a technique I am pretty new at, but I do like the look.

Supplies: Stamps - Love Robotz - Stampendous, sentiment - savvystamps; Paper - Pacific Point, Whisper White, Only Orange; Ink - Memento; Accessories - Nesties, ribbon - ?, CB folder, Gamsol, Prismacolor pencils

New Challenge for me this weekend....

To make a card that doesn't have the pink & green color scheme!! LOL! I was looking back at my blog entries and good gollie, I love the pink & green combo - I need to branch out and do some color challenges. Look for new stuff this weekend!! :)

Have a great weekend!

Well, it's a chilly 57 degrees here in N. FL (I know that is HOT compared to some places, but it's chilly for us!!) So after running a few errands, I came home and colored this little fairy with my copics and added some stickles (fairy dust) to her wings so she could fly! Anyhoo, on to the supplies...
