Beee Mine

Hey there! :) So I had some time last night to ink up this adorable little Huggabugg and combine a couple of challenges, which is always a good thing! :) I used Amy's Rysavy's Friday Sketch #56 and the colors come from the Bellarific Friday Challenge that Em posted yesterday! You can use any color combo from the pic and the only thing you must do is include a flower! That's pretty easy...right?!?! LOL!!! :)

I stamped Beeemine Huggabug with Brilliance Graphite Black Ink onto White Daisy CS. I then colored her with my copics and added two Black Doodlebug Glittered Brads to her cute IRL! I used my new paper from My Mind's Eye Penny Lane Collection "Feeling Groovy" (love it) and added some stitching and a few White Daisy Bigger Brads and called it done! :)

Well that's it for me today! It's been a pretty busy week at work and I'm just looking forward to Friday and spending time with my family during the holiday weekend! :) I hope to be back tomorrow with some more eye candy, till then have a Happy Wednesday!!! ~ Jenn

Sweet Sunday Sketch #12

Good Morning! Is it bad that it's only Tuesday and I already wish the weekend was here again?!?! LOL!!! :) I've just been extremely exhausted lately and haven't felt the best...but I'm gonna push through it, because that's what I do! :) I have another Sweet Sunday Sketch card to show you this morning. Karen's sketches are so fun and I always look forward to seeing what she comes up with every Sunday!

I decided I would ink up these sweet little birdies from the Kim Hughes 'The Birds and the Bees (Love)' set! And I paired them with some October Afternoon paper that I just love! I'm almost done using all my scraps of this paper...I will be sad to see it go! :( The sentiment comes from the set too. It says Sweetie Pie, but I only inked up the Sweetie and stamped it on my card...I just love it! :)

Well I gotta run! I have a lot of work to do today and then off to Boot Camp I go! :)

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #3

Happy Monday!!! Did everyone enjoy their weekend?!?! I was busy searching for a new desk. My husband bought me a new computer and monitor, but I didn't want to set it up till I had the right desk. I knew exactly what I wanted and I searched everywhere for it. Thank goodness I found it at Target and I love it! This weekend I was able to work on Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Challenge #3. There were five colors in the challenge...Red, Berry, Soft Pink, Vanilla & Kraft! This card took me F-O-R-E-V-E-R to finish. I had trouble figuring out the best way to fit all those colors on the card...LOL! :) I think I did an O.K. job so here goes!

When I first saw Jessie's card, I just knew I had to get me some of these digital stamps from the Little Paper Shop. Isn't little Katie the cutest?!?! I just had to have her!

I colored Katie with my CTMH markers and layered her onto a base of Berry Sorbet CS. I then added some Stardust Stickles to the butterfly and some Kaiser Pearls and flowers from Making Memories for embellishment. Now that I look at it, I should have added some just feels like it's missing something! Oh well...too late to change that now!

Well I hope everyone has a fabulous day and I hope to be back here tomorrow with something new to share! ~ Jenn

Sweet Sunday Sketch #11

Hey there! Well I was finally able to take a decent pic of my card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #11. I've had it done since Monday, but we've had crappy weather all week and today is the first day that it's not raining (well we did have a storm come through this morning, but it' gone now) and the sun is brightly shining! :D

I used my Growing with Unity stamp for this card...that bird is so whimsical! :D I didn't do a whole lot to this card...just didn't think it needed too much froo froo stuff on it. So when I was done I just added some brads and a Prima and called it done!

Well I hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday! I had jury duty (thank goodness I didn't get picked) this morning and just got home from eating lunch with my hubby! :) He didn't even know I was coming to see him, so he was totally shocked! I even got lost when I was in Downtown Houston, but I wanted it to be a surprise so I couldn't call to ask him to help me!!! LOL!!! :) But I found my way around and all was good.

Well I'm off to get some laundry done, take a nap and then off to boot camp I go! So have a great afternoon and hope to be back soon with something crafty! :) ~ Jenn
