Renew - Some Odd Girl Nouveau Girl!

Hi ya everyone!  I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  We had a nice dinner last night with friends and we are hoping the sun comes out. 

As I was looking at my completed project files I realized that this card never got posted!  Which is terrible because this beauty is part of the new Nouveau Girl release at Some Odd Girl and she's my favorite!!! Meet Renew!  Isn't she beautiful!
I used some paper from My Mind's Eye, but the sentiment is from the set that has Renew!  There are a number of beautiful sentiments that come with her and a few flowers too.  Check it out HERE!
Head over to the Odd Girl blog and check out all the exciting things we have going on!!!

I LOVE elephants :)

Hi ya everyone I'm so excited to share a little A2 sized box I made for my sister's upcoming birthday for my project at iCopic Lover!  I used the NEW Wild Rose Studio Clear Stamp called Bella with Presents.

Oh my gosh - isn't he/she the cutest ever!  I love this stamp and new right away I had to have it.  There are a number of sweet Bella images in the Wild Rose Studio selection at iCopic (I want all of them - hehe).  I stamped Bella with Presents in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (which is back in stock!) on Curious Cryogen White paper.  I am loving this paper, almost more then my X-Press It.  Here is a picture of the top of the box. 

I used My Mind's Eye paper for the lid.  I also used a bit of Kraft paper for the base as it's really stiff and sturdy. 
I used my fabulous Copics to color the image too.  You can see them listed below.  I love the R02, R05, and R08 blending group as well.  The color is a perfect salmon pink and it blends perfectly.
Wow and don't forget about our fun RV challenge this week.  If you haven't gotten a glimpse of Kelli's GORGEOUS card you must see what she did with the mermaids tail!!! WOW!

A Tiddly Thank You!!

Hi ya everyone!  It's a good think I work ahead, otherwise I would have nothing to show you today.  I love Tiddly Inks and thought I was going to have to miss a challenge.  However, I always have back up images colored and I was able to finish this in time!  I used the adorable and CHEAP image called Take a Bow.
I hope you'll join our challenge at Tiddly Inks this week as I think saying Thank You is important and that's the challenge a thank you card or note!

Inspiration Time at Tiddly Inks

Hi ya everyone! 
  It's Tiddly Tuesday!! YAY, one of my very favorite days every week.  This week we have an inspiration photo.  I realized this weekend I had to get a few Easter cards made - nothing like the last minute right?  So I used the photo inspiration challenge to help me out.  Here is the photo from the fabulous Va-Voom Vintage
For the challenge you just need to use the photo as inspiration.  So the bold colorful stripes pulled me in so I decided to do the same with the image above called Bunny Q!  Her egg was a perfect place for me to show you the inspiration from the photo.
The card is fairly simple but I just got this ADORABLE paper from We R Memory Keepers.  Look at those bunnies...stinkin' cute!  So I just used the new Thickers you can peal and add glitter too!  That's it...easy and I had a fairly simple but pretty card for Easter! 
Join our challenge at Tiddly Inks!

iCopic Weekly Challenge #77 - Greens


Hi ya everyone!
Today we have a color challenge at iCopic - us your green Copics!  I created this little gift bag with adorable stamp from Stampavie by Penny Johnson called Little Tobie Watering the Roses.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped on Curious Cryogen White paper.

The image was colored in the following Copic markers: Click on the image to enlarge!
The Curious Cryogen White is a fabulous paper to go with your markers as the paper has a great sparkle!  It adds the perfect little touch to a project.  Honestly - I really liked coloring on this paper too.  It seems just a bit more absorbent then the X-press which could be a good or bad thing depending on your coloring style.
The sentiment "Spring has Sprung" is from the new My Craft Spot stamp sets!!! I LOVE them all and you will too!!!
Please join iCopic for our Green challenge!

Still Hanging Out with Tiddly Inks Today!

Hi ya everyone! I have another Cutey Patootie to share with you today!!!  Check out this FABULOUS Wryn - Hanging Around!  I just love her long flowy locks and sweet little outfit!  This is a perfect image for the upcoming summer for sure! 
We are still celebrating at Tiddly Inks with new images and some ADORABLE freebie frames!  Speaking of frames today is my day to share with you!  Hubs and I both created a frame to share!  Make sure to click on it to make it larger then right click to save!  I thought it a bit rustic and maybe fun for this image or Wryn - Howdy Cowgirl!!!
My sweet hubby wanted to share a little something too!  So he drew up this fun and whimsical frame!
 I hope you have fun with both frames and don't forget to go to Christy's blog to find the other freebies AND the challenge blog has a few special guests joining us!! Please go by there and leave your love!

Another NEW Tiddly Image!!! YAY!

Hi ya everyone!  Second post for the day! I've been a busy crafting beaver lately...so if you came to look at my Some Odd Girl feature scroll down!

Now on to the cutest girl on the block - Meet Wryn Happy Heart!  Isn't she the CUTEST???  I had such a good time coloring that huge smiley heart!!!  I used the adorable frame that team mate Arabella drew.  You must check our Inker Marlena's free frame creations too!!  First, stop by the fabulous Christy Croll's blog and see how you can get all the frames for free!!!
Adorable right?  I love this image paired with the adorable frame!  Also, a small hint about my letters I used to write out Smile.  They were very light pink Basic Gray Letters from a paper set.  The color wasn't fabulous for this card so I simple took my Copic R22 and colored them up to match perfectly....I did the same to the coral/pink flower in the bottom.  I then took my white gel roll pen and added some white dots and ta-da perfect letters for my card.  Love Copics for this reason...they can make anything a perfect match!  Now, head over to Christy's blog and find out how to get your free frames and LEAVE a comment and you could win some images!!!
