What a glorious day!!!  I worked out in the yard, mowed the grass and breathed in spring like there was no tomorrow.   I have a post for this evening and the sentiment that I used on my card is no small coincidence.    This is a stamp that I don’t store with the others….since purchasing it several years ago, it sits permanently on my desk to remind me that it really is all about today!

The flowers are by Magenta – so, so cute and quick to color up.  The ribbon treatment was something I had written down in my sketch book and I was tickled to put it to use.  I used Copics on the flowers and since I don’t have the a really light blue copic, I used a blue prismacolor pencil with OMS around each flower.


Stamps:  Magenta – Flowers; Hero Arts – Sentiment
Paper:  Making Memories – All Girl; Bazzill
Ink:  Black Brilliance: Colorbox Chalk – Warm Red
Accessories:  Tonic Punch; White Satin Ribbon; Paper Studio Button; Copic Markers; Prismacolor and OMS

Don’t laugh but I think I figured out something I didn’t know how to do on this blog.  If I’ve done it correctly, clicking on my picture should bring up a larger picture.  I have so much yet to learn!!!  Thanks for bearing with me.

    Beautiful! I love the ribbon treatment. And did you use an embossing folder for the dotted paper? It’s gorgeous!ReplyCancel

Today’s a busy day, but I have a quick post for a challenge that I worked on in between things.  The challenge is A Sketch for you to Try and can be found here on Jen del Muro’s blog, I{heart}2stamp.

Another classic layout that nicely showcases a single image.  I picked a cute Magenta flower that I’ve had in my stash for some time and colored it up quickly with my Copics. 

Stamps:  Magenta – Flower; Stampa Rosa  Sentiment
Ink:  Black Brilliance
Paper:  K&Co – Classic K Bailey, Bazzill
Accessories:  Offray Grosgrain Ribbon; Tab Punch, Copics

Have a great weekend!

    Oh my Gosh, I can’t believe that I didn’t leave you a comment on this one, it is beautiful. Gorgeous coloring, and love the layout.



I was in the mood to do a challenge, so the layout for this card is the Mojo Monday sketch at Poetic Artistry.


Now that I’m sooooo organized with my new Sketch Book journal, I’ve recorded a couple of challenges I want to do….this is the first.  This one went together very easily and is very straight forward.  I used by bracket punch to create a holder from the red panel that frames the friend sentiment.

Stamps:  Hero Arts
Inks: Color Box Chalk Ink – Warm Red
Paper:  DCWV, Bazzill
Accessories:  Brads, Offray Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!
