High Hopes Motherhood

Well here is the card I promised you on Tuesday you're just getting it a few days late!LOL!! Man what a week I had! Tuesday night my sis and I went to see the new Tyler Perry play. OMG!! I have NEVER laughed so hard! It was AWESOME!! Wed I had a teacher want a set of 30 all occasion cards that then on Thurs I had a teacher want 36 baby shower invites so I've been busy stamping this week just not stuff to share on my blog.
Okay onto the card with Spring approaching I pulled out all my springy sets with of course includes Easter and Mothers Day sets. I pulled out this adorable HH image I ordered last year that never got a chance to see ink. I had to have this image since of course I have 3 kids but several of my friends and family also have 3 kids so I knew I would get alot of use out of it. I tried using the feathering technique on the bunnys for some fur texture. I think it turned out pretty good but I definitely need more practice on it. I used Karens sweet Sunday sketch for my layout but of course its last weeks sketch. One of these weeks I will actually load a current challenge!LOL!! I do love this sketch though and do you see that?!...4 pieces of dp on my card! Yayy for me!! I rarely can make using lots of dp work (2 is usually my limit!) on my cards but this sketch was perfect for it. The inside of the card says "Motherhood can be a hare raising experience" Hope you have a great day!!
Stamps: High Hopes-Motherhood and sentiment
Paper: kraft, choc chip, BG bittersweet dp
Ink: memento black, copics, antique linen distress ink
Accessories: sponge dauber, nesties, choc chip grosgrain ribbon, pink dew drops, dimensionals

TGF Dino Boy

I adore this image!! This so looks like my little boy about 2 yrs ago! He was so into dinosaurs. All we watched was Land Before Time movies!LOL!! My hubby accused me of watching WAY too much Friends when I was pregnant with him and had turned him into Ross!LOL!! Since then we moved onto to cars and then superheros.
So of course I made this card with Bray in mind. I used BG Lime Rickey dp. I love the blue piece from a distance it reminds me of scales like would be on a dinosaur. Of course Dino boy is colored using copics and I did a little blue shading with my copics and I dont like it so I will be sticking with my prismacolor pencils for shading. Oh and my son informed me the color I colored his shirt looks like a girl shirt!LOL!
Well thats it for me today. I have a card to share with you tomorrow and guess what?!!.....Its not a CC designs or TGF image!! GASP!!LOL!! Ive been so stuck on those lately!LOL!

Nurse Nora

Can you believe I used a white card base?!? I cant even remember the last time I used this much white on a card!LOL!! I just usually cant seem to pull it off to satisfy me. I colored this adorable Nurse Nora and just couldnt help giving her some black hair. As a little girl I used to love my Grannys jet black hair!LOL!! Hopefully I'll be able to pull off the look as good as she did when I need to cover these stubborn grays she and my Mom have so generously passed down to me!LOL! Now that I finally have a scanner I will try to scan a pic of Granny in her uniform that was my inspiration.
The dp I paired with Nora is from two different mat stacks from DCWV. I know the red is from the citrus stack but Im not sure which stack the argyle print is from. Its hard to see in the pic but the red dp has little white lines that reminded me of a candy striper so thats how it ended up on the card!LOL! Oh and I do love how my bow turned out on this card!! Have a great day!

My Valentine Baby

Hope you all had a great Valentines day yesterday filled with lots of love! We spent the day celebrating my valentine baby who turned 9 yesterday. This is the card I gave her yesterday and she loved it. Very girly!LOL! She is starting to get kinda girly so we had a very girly day Saturday together. I took her to lunch then spent the rest of the day shopping, getting manicures, and getting haircuts. She got her nails painted lime green and they put some hot pink and black lines on her nails!LOL!! She might be turning punk rock instead of girly!LOL!!
Okay now onto the card. The dp I used is some my Mom gave me so I actually have no idea where it came from or whose it is! Thats alot of help for you isnt it?!LOL! I think it came from Treehouse but I will have to ask her and make sure. I colored Rosalie with some of my new copic colors I got right after Christmas. Ive been playing around with some skin tone colors since Ive gotten stuck on the e50's for skin tone and they are still my fave but I do like to change it up some. I also got some of the e70's for hair. I LOVE how they look! The sketch I used was a new sketch challenge for me. It was last weeks Sweet Sunday sketch but since Im just posting this today Im thinking Im a little late!LOL!! Well that's it for me today. Have a great one!

ATS Valentino

Man was today a long day or what!?! Of course any day 20 kids in a class that havent been able to go outside for a full week and add sugar to the mix makes for a long day!LOL!! We had our class Valentine party today since tommorrow is a student holiday which means I have to work and Im praying we dont get the snow they are prediciting!! Im from So Ga so I have no idea how to drive in the snow!!!LOL!! AND add to that Im so not a morning person and Im not fully awake at least until 9 am!LOL!! Okay so enough about me onto the card...
Im trying to get all my Valentine cards posted before Sunday so this card is one my kids gave to their teachers. I used this adorable Valentino image from All that Scraps and paired him with some BG bittersweet dp. I also used someones sketch but I cant for the life of me remember whose sketch it is!! I of course had to add some sparkle to the heart! I also made a little chipboard heart with my MS punch and some leftover cardboard from one of my dp packs and I used my dew drops that have been collecting dust. I was crazy about dew drops when they first come out but I havent used them in a long time I've been using the self adhesive rhinestones and pearls so much they have been neglected!LOL!! Okay well that's it for me today! Have a great night!! PS I also used my first piece of prism cs on this card and Im really liking it!

Sketch Ruby

Im back today with another card I made for another challenge that never got posted!LOL!! I think I made this for the Anyone for Anya sketch challenge a couple of weeks ago. I love how the coloring on her hair turned out. Kim was my inspiration for her hair. I love how she colors Anya etc images hair and eyes. I used some MME bloom and grow dp and for some reason this card just did not photograph very well!
Its a yucky rainy reary day here! Hope you see some sunshine where you are because I know in So Ga we are sure tired of this rain! Have a great day!

TGF Princess Ava

Hello to all my stamping I've missed you!! BIG {{{HUGS}}} to all my sweet blogging friends for their cares and concerns during my blogging absence! I am happy to say that things are slowly getting back to some normalcy here. During my hiatus I have sat down and colored up some images but they just haven't made it onto cards yet. I decided today to finally COMPLETE a card!LOL! I had this Princess Ava colored up for a color challenge (I think!) from TGF but she was just laying there waiting to be put on a card! Doesn't she just look the sweetest?!? I needed to get some Valentines made for the kids since its next week! Can you believe that?!! So I decided to play along in today's fs challenge on SCS. I cased Babara's card here. I changed the colors/dp and image. I kept the layout but left off the border punch on the middle panel since I embossed it with SU texture plates which is hard to see in the pic but it looks great with the polka dot dp.
I think this will make a great Valentine for my little princess especially since she adored the princess and frog movie and has been asking if we can go see it again!LOL! Hope you all have a great day!
