From The Heart Stamps

Since I have been having so much fun with digital images, I have decided to do a monthly challenge with "From The Heart Stamps".  If you continue each month with their challenge you get the image free every month.  Their digitals are just adorable.
This image is called Hogs and Kisses PigWit.  I decided to do a watercolor background and then fussy cut out the pig.  Isn't he adorable?

Can't wait to see what the image is for March.

Exciting News

Since Two Paper Divas decided to close their store I have been looking for a stamp company to design for that works with my style.  I was so happy to be selected to be on the Prickley Pear design team.  I will start in March so be watching for some of my cards starting next week.  I was amazed at all the stamps they carry.  And very reasonable.  Be sure and check them out.

Ribbon - Burlap Twine and Red Flat Ribbon by "Celebrate It"
Buttons:  Heart by "Dress It Up - Love Potion"

New Design Team

I am excited to announce that I have been selected to be on a new design team.  It is called Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  I will start this new adventure in March.  I can't wait.  You should check out their challenges in the mean time.  They always have a sponsor who sells digital images that offer up a great prize for each challenge.  I have came across some new digital companies that I was not familiar with.  I am thrilled to be selected to be on this team.  Be watching in March for designs from me.

Crafters of Faith

My poor little blog hasn't seen much action in a few days.  I have lots of cards to share, just need to get them on my blog.  Today's card is for a group that I am in on Splitcoast Stampers called Crafters of Faith.  We have a theme each month.  This month the theme was Love.  How perfect for a Valentine's Day Card.
I used a Stampin Up set for this card called Filled with Love.  I thought the gray, black and red really worked out well for this card.

Be sure and check back this weekend because I have some exciting news to share.

PIP Challenge #1705

I have enjoyed doing  Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges because I always go to the store that is sponsoring the challenge and find some fun digitals.  The company sponsoring Challenge #1705 is Sami Stamps.  She has some really cute digital stamps.  You can purchase some of their images
on her blog or at her etsy store.

 The image I purchased is called Frost and Whisker Friends.  I colored the image with my copic markers and then found a sketch that would work to highlight this adorable image.  The sentiment is from a Stampin Up set I have.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Be sure and check out Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.

Challenge Your Stash Group

Well today's card is from another group on Splitcoast Stampers.  Our challenge for this group is to each month have a different challenger and they will come  up with a challenge for the group.  The challenge for this month was a color challenge.  We were to used Black, White and Silver.  Since I am still in the Christmas mode and started my goal of 100 Christmas cards for 2017, this is my card.
I took a piece of black cardstock and stamped the image (Snow Day Background by Taylored Expressions) with versa mark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I then cut out a few snowflakes from Yvonne Creations called Holly Jolly Snowflake and Star.  I loved this challenge.

I still struggle with my picture taking and this picture below shows one of my issues.
Someone wanted in the picture.  Enjoy the card.
