By the Sea

My son has a birthday this week so of course I had to make him a card. I went to Pinterest to get some ideas and ended up making this card. I’m entering it in the following challenges: Lemon Shortbread - Anything goes;

Flap Card

I saw this idea on Pinterest and really liked it. It’s called a flap card and you only use a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2” piece of card stock for the base. Your message is under the flap. I have some beautiful decorative paper but I love to color too so this card gave me a chance to use both. Fortunately I already had colored the flowers and it was in my stash drawer. 😁 I’m going to enter this card in #1931 pammiesinkypinkieschallenges.blogspot.com; lemonshortbread.blogspot.com

Hanging around

I really like my Tim Holtz window die and was delighted to find a way to use it in a fun way. The digital stamp is from Gerda Steiner Designs. I’m entering this card in #1930 pammiesinkypinkies.blogspot.com and pinkgemchallengeblog.com.

In the Pink

I made this card for a friend who is a quilter. The image is from Sassy Cheryl and I colored it with my Lyra colored pencils. I shaded the background with a make up brush I bought from Amazon.

A Tweet Card

When I went to the convention in Kissimmee a couple weeks ago, I bought a square shaker window template by Art Gone Wild. I’ve had a lot of fun with it. The birds are from an old Stampin Up set and this new paper from Stampin Up is perfect for it. I kind of overdid it with the bird seed I took from Happy, our 25 year old cockatiel. 🙀 I’m entering this card in #1928 pammiesinkypinkieschallenges.blogspot.com

Christmas in July

Here’s another Power Poppy design that I purchased recently. Guess I’m in a rut, but what a good rut to be in. I think you will agree. I’m entering in the following: #1927 pammiesinkypinkieschallenge.blogspot.com and Powerpoppy.com

Weary me...

I had a wonderful day at Stampfest in Kissimmee, Florida. When we got a parking spot at the front door, we knew right away it was going to be a good day. 😁 This card was not made with anything I bought today. Tune in next week for that. This is an image from Stampin Up “Good Morning Magnolia” to which I only added a little color with my Lyra colored pencils. I’m going to enter it in #1926 pammiesinkypinkieschallenges.com and lemonshortbreadchallenge.blogspot.com Lucky me! I won first place at pammiesinkypinkies.com!

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

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
