Got my order from StampTV yesterday and this card is one of the sets. Love's called A Beautiful Life by Melanie Muenchinger. She's such a talanted designer! I did this for a color challenge using violet,green and white colors. Added a touch of black around the edge and for the "bee" tracks. I'm looking forward to seeing the bumble bees in my flower garden. I love setting on the deck and watch them dig for nectar in the flower petals. Last year we had one that would buzz around our head anytime we came outside as if he was questioning what our motive for being out there was!
Thanks for stopping by..see ya next time!

Happy Birthday Mark! I have a wonderful son-in-law and is well deserving of all the happy birthday wishes he gets! He's an avid fisherman so I thought this card suits him! I used SU Blue Bayou, Pumpkin Pie and white CS and velumn over the fish. The fish image is from the new set by Asela Hopkins called "By Your Side". I colored the fish with copic markers and placed the velumn over it so it looks like the fish are in water. The background stamped with versa mark is from Northwoods. I got it at the Enchanted Cottage in NC a good while back. The sentiment stamped in Memento Ink I think I got at ACM. Got a busy weekend good night everyone!

Happy Birthday Brooke

Hi again! This has been a busy week and I almost forgot this little girl's birthday which is today! This was a quick and easy card..using SU lavender and certain celery cardstock. The dp I picked up at Joann's and the little girl image was given to me by my dh's cousin last spring. I colored her with copics and backed her with the certain celery cs so she would pop. My next post will be a card for my dear son-in-law who's bday is next week.

Sketch challenge GKDMAR10LM

I really enjoyed the release party and all the beautiful samples of the new stamp sets...can't wait to get mine. I had made another card for this challenge and hated back to the drawing board! The cardstock is Stamping Up So Saffron, White, Blue Bayou. The image is from Nina Brackett's Lovely Shelf. I used nesties on the squares and cuttlebug dotted swiss on the white cardstock. I cut out the rose and vase and paper pieced the vase from a scrap of dp.

I wanted to try the thumbing technique so I used SU elegant eggplant and whispering white. The dp is a freebie from stv. I used Tombow markers 025 and 606, and Marvy green. The ribbon is from SU and the brad from my stash. The image is from SU petal prints and sentiment from SU Warmest Regards. I think I need to PRACTICE this technique a LOT!

Spring Has Sprung..just looked out and saw some daffodils blooming! Hurrah! I found this dp at Joann's Fabrics. The Cs is SU Barely Banana and whispering white. I used the dotted swiss folder in the cuttlebug, then used oval nesties. Colored with copics and added some yellow ribbon from my stash.. Added stickles to the flowers, but you can't see them. The image is from Nina Brackett's Lord of the Season.

My second post!! How am I doing? I did this card for the Monday green challenge on STV. It's on Certain Celery CS by SU with SU dp. The images are the tree from SU's Lovely as a Tree and Warmest Regards. The little deer is from Theresa Momber's Life is Good. I watercolored the tree and grass. I'm just getting a few of the wonderful stamp sets from Gina and other designers..Hopefully my collection will grow. Well, I'm off to see the oral body attacked my eye tooth and this is day 2 in the dentist chair..Ouch!
