Isn’t this little girl the sweetest?  Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs released this back in August but it reminds me of Spring.  It is called “Blowing Bubbles”.  You can find your own by clicking on the link.  The March choose your challenge is still going and will be going for 9 (nine) more days so you still have time to enter.  I chose to use the sketch.

Dragonfly Dreams March Challenge Sponsored By Imagine That

This month the challenge at Dragonfly Dreams is sponsored by Imagine That.  The theme is Up, Up in the Air:  clouds, birds, kites, balloons, butterflies.  If you are like me you are ready for Spring!  Here is my card:

Psalm118-24--ImagineThat--DragonflyDreams

 

Here are the items I used from Imagine That.  I used the Birds in Spring kit specifically Psalm 118.24.  I also used the Spring in Bloom Digi Papers specifically Leaf Floral, Dotty Blues, and Cherry Blossoms coral.  I loved this set.  I used my Copics to color the image.  Here is the list of Copics that I used:  B-0000, BG-01, BG-34, E-23, E-25, E-27, E-29, R-20, R-24, YG-23, and YG-25.  I used Spellbinders Grand Label One to cut out the image.  I hope that you will join us at Dragonfly Dreams for a fun challenge.  Please go visit Kris at Imagine That and look at all of the really nice images that she has.  I was not aware of her site before now and perhaps you weren’t either.

Please go to Dragonfly Dreams and check out the wonderful cards that the rest of the DT made as well.  They are a very talented group of women.  Until we meet again…Ciao…

I am so excited to share my project with you.  My card features the NEW DIGI
CUTIE BUG LOLLY from this month’s release
CutieBugLollyFBDFeb10
I used the fluorescent Copics FB-2, FRV-1, FV-2, FY-1, FYG-2, and FYR-1 for the lolly.  I used C-1, C-6, C-9, R-27, V-12, V-15, and V-17 to finish the project.  I used my lavender Stickles to go around the shape.  The paper is from the “Lovey Dovey” collection from the Oriental Trading Company.  And the tape is American Crafts Purple Glitter Tape.  I wanted the image to stand out so I tried to keep the background from taking over or distracting from it.
As much as I hate to see you go, it is time for you to BUZZ on over to my
friend  Rhonda’s blog to see the adorable  project she has prepared for you.

“The Power of Love” from Stitchy Bears for Dragonfly Dreams

That's The Power of Love--StitchyBears--DragonflyDreams

For Dragonfly Dreams second challenge we were to use our favorite song.  We were blessed enough to have Stitchy Bear Stamps sponsor us.  I was able to use “The Power of Love” digital stamp.  Now I knew ahead of time that Luther Van Dross,  Huey Lewis, and Celine Dion sang songs with that title.  I had forgotten about Jennifer Rush singing it.  Also the songs are all different, at least the first 3 that I mentioned.  Now while I was making my card I sort of vacillated between singing Luther’s version and Huey Lewis’ version.  Apparently I wound up singing Huey Lewis’ version at the end because it is the one that says, “That’s the power of love.”  I had the paper and the ribbon in my stash.  I colored 2 of the digital stamps and I popped up one of them.  I hand wrote, “That’s The Power Of Love…” with a white gel pen.  I used my copics to color my images.  Here is the list:

B-24. B-26, B-28, B-32

C-6, C-7, C-9

E-00, E-21

R-24, R-27, R-29, R-81, R-83, R-85

Y-18, Y-19

YG-23, YG-25

Please be sure to go check out the rest of the images that the DT did.  You can see them here.  They all did a beautiful job.  And please go visit our sponsor, Stitchy Bear Stamps!  They have all kinds of great images to work with.  They have great images to work with for this challenge!  I hope that you have found some inspiration here.  Until we meet again…Ciao…

Fresh Brewed Designs Valentine Girl

ValentineGirl--FBD

 

Hello on this Saturday morning!  I chose to use Fresh Brewed Designs’ Valentine Girl for my card today.  I also chose to use the sketch that Fresh Brewed Designs has had for the month.

ed0ba-janchallengefbd

I received the watercolor crayons that I had ordered and so that is what I used to color the Valentine Girl.  I didn’t write the colors down.  It is a little difficult to get the watercolor crayons in such tiny spaces.  But I was very happy with the final results.  The paper and brads were in my supply already.  I hope that you will go check out what is going on at Fresh Brewed Designs.   There is always something fun going on over there.  Go check it out and find some inspiration here as well at Fresh Brewed Designs.   See you soon.  Until we meet again…Ciao…
