A birthday card

For my friend, Glenda. And another Power Poppy Image colored with my Faber Castell colored pencils or was it the Lyra pencils.. I just switched back to the Fabers, but now I’m not sure it it was before or after this card. Either way, I like them both so I guess it doesn’t matter. 🙄 I’m entering this card in the following: #1925 pammiesinkypinkieschallenges.blogspot.com, #467 craftycatzweeklychallenge.blogspot.com

Where does the time go....

If you find out, please let me know. I’ve been busy coloring some of the Spring Blitz new digital stamps from Power Poppy. Hope you have had the opportunity to check out the beautiful images. This image is called Lavender Sachet; I colored it with my Lyra colored pencils; the grunge is from a Stampin’ Up set called “Beauty Abounds.” I’m entering it in #284 Josscrapshack.com and #95 Lemonshortbreadchallenge.blogspot.com,craftycatzweeklychallenge.com, pammiesinkypinkieschallenges.blogspot.com Yippee, I got honorable mention in last week’s pammiesinkypinkies challenge.

The Old and the New

I was inspired to get out a Stampin’ Up set I bought a long time ago, and my new Buffalo Check stamp. It’s so rewarding to me to use something I’ve had for a long time. It’s like using a new stamp set. It originally was on a wood block but not anymore. I’m entering this card in #1920 pammiesinkypinkies.blogspot.com and #282 josscrapshack

It’s hard to believe

Who’d have thought it!

For years my favorite colored pencils were Faber Castell Colored Pencils. Then two weeks ago I took a class (something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while) with Janelle Johnson, and she introduced me to Lyra Polycolor Pencils. I am now a proud owner of 72 Lyra pencils. 🥰 I love the way they flow across the paper.

March Color Challenge

Bugaboostamps.com aka Catch the Bug had a color challenge for us this month. We were to use the following colors on our card, grey, black, two tones of blue, red and pale green. I did my best to do just that although it can be hard getting the exact hue. 🙄 I’m entering this card in the following challenges: Catch the Bug, #1912 pammiesinkypinkieschallenges.blogspot.com, #274 joss rap shack.com, #423 penneyschallenges.blogspot.com.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

It just so happened that I have green in the background of my card, so why not post it today for some challenges. This is a new digital stamp from powerpoppy.com. Of course I colored it with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I "love to color" with these pencils.

Thank you, Stella 😘

Stella Says Sketch of bugaboostamps.com is a good way for me to create a card with a different layout. It helps me to get out of my rut. I made the following card using a bugaboo image, and as usual, colored it with my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.

Temptations abound at power poppy.com

And I, in my weakness, succomed. Who doesn’t like a sale, right? And who, in their right mind, doesn’t take advantage of good buys. Please note “buy” being plural. 🙀 Enough said. I made this card and have finished it just in time to enter the power poppy challenge.
I’m also entering this card in #1909 pammiesinkypinkies.blogspot.com and I won honorable mention. Yippee.
