Dare You, Shirleys2Girls, and Whimsie Doodles

I really enjoy participating in challenges when I have the time. This one is for the "Dare You to Digi-Stamp" Friday challenge, using C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies Heidi digital image:I used Stampin' Up! cardstock (So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Whisper White) and designer series background paper (I used this to paper piece her clothes and boots, too), Stampin' Write markers, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings, around the edge of the square that she's stamped on, as well as all over the sentiment.

Then I made this one using C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies Gretel digital image and the same colors/papers:
Another challenge I like to try to participate in is the Shirleys2Girls Twisted Thursday challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch, and the twist was to add sparkle - here's my interpretation of it:
I used Missmatch Ketto from da Stamping Bella, SU! circle punch, SU! Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, SU! Circle Ice rhinestone brads, SU! cardstock (Certainly Celery & WW), and SU! background designer series paper.

Then I decided to make some cards with the freebie digital image I got from Whimsie Doodles, This Bud's For You. I just love love love this adorable turtle. This first one is for a good friend whose birthday is next week:

Changed up the colors a bit, using Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst & WW:

This one uses Stampin' Up! cardstock Old Olive, Taken with Teal, WW, and Rose Red:

We had one day of sunshine yesterday and I took full advantage. I pretended to be at the beach - I went and bought myself a beach lounge chair and a few magazines. Plopped my butt down in my chair and just soaked up the sun (with my sunblock on, of course) for several hours. It was glorious. However, today when I woke up the clouds and rain were back and it was almost more depressing after having a day of sunshine! The only positive to the crappy weather is that my card stash is really growing! Hope you all have a lazy, happy Sunday. Peace.


  1. LOVE that first czrd especailly! Great idea to use the patterned paper for boots and clothes too!

  2. Thanks for playing the TT challenge. Adorable card!

  3. Wow!! You've been a very busy girl!! Every single one of your cards is darling. But I must say I'm especially partial to your sample for the Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday challenge. Love how you cropped Mismatched Ketto to fit the sketch - very clever!! Thanks so much for playing! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work!

  4. Wow so many cards and they are all lovely! Great card for the DU2DS challenge. Love that image.
