Sassy Cheryl's Thinking of You Challenge

Wow two posts in one day! This one is for Sassy Cheryl's Thinking of You challenge. This card is also for a dear friend that I don't get to see enough of!!! Every Christmas we say on our cards let's get together for lunch! Well here is the inside of the card says "Shall we do lunch?".

The card itself is of course one of Sassy Cheryl's digital stamps and I used the Torn Frame as well as the Whisped Frame.

Thanks again for stopping by and have a great weekend...I hear there is a new newsletter on Technique Junkies (where both my techs came from) so I'm off to check it out. DH works tomorrow bonus stamp day!!!



Bloggers Challenge 162

Here is my card for the Bloggers Challenge 162. The challenge this week was to use Black and White with one other color. First when I think of black and white I think silhouette therefore my image is a silhouette. This was a freebie but I'm not sure what company it was part of a set of four images, heads of women. Then I think red...

Everything on this card is digital. The background paper is by Bugaboo and also was a freebie. (she's having a 50% off all stamps and today is the last day). Missing You computer generated.

Easy card once I got everything together.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Gingersnap Challenge GC64 Red, Yellow, Orange

Good Afternoon...another hot muggy day here in RI...So I might as well stay cool and play in my craft room. Too hot to do housework and told DH that and he just rolled his what if we have air!!!

Well here is one for Gingersnap Creations...and I'll tell you I had so much fun making this. All it started with was a Hot Air Balloon and colors red, yellow, orange. I transformed it into this masterpiece!!! LOL I'm going to enter it in two the GC 64 red, yellow, and orange, and the GC 61 heat seeing as it has a sun....okay so I'm stretching it but it sure is hot here because of the sun!!!
Digital Stamp is by Birds Cards and was a freebie. The papers came from (striped) a package of Halloween paper (cover long gone) same with the background but I'm sure that they were purchased at Joann"s
That's it for now!!! Have to go clean the kitchen so I can cook supper!

Monday Lunchtime Challenge 132

Okay let's see if I can do better this week. I had everyone confused including myself last week. I had the two challenges listed on this group mixed up...not once but at least two times.

This week I printed out the challenges and hung them above my crafting desk!!! This challenge is on Techno Stamper. I love this sketch and I hope you all like the card I came up with. To see original sketch go to

This card uses a Technique Junkie technique for the first layer. The second layer and image layer uses a free digital stamp. I wish I could remember by what company but when I first started collecting digitals I didn't realize the companies don't always list there names on them. I had accumulated quite a few. If anyone recognizes it please let me know and I will add it...I really want to give the artist credit.
The image was colored with watercolor crayons on watercolor paper. Flowers are a punch by All night media.
Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

Get Well Card

Today's card is going to cover two Challenges Techno Stamper's Lunchtime Sketch, TSSC131. Sassy Cheryl's Cut Out Challenge, Challenge 21. It might also pass for TJ out of the box!!
This took a long time to make but was worth it in the end. The image is from Sassy Cheryl's images and it is called Healing Hands. Now all I need is for someone to be sick!! NOT!! The layout using Penny Lane papers same as yesterday...can you tell I like it? These are two of my favorite color combinations. Also it was on sale and I bought a ton of it! Well maybe 10 pcs 12 x 12 all they had left.
Coloring as usual is Copic Markers and the punch is by Martha Stewart.
Hope you all like it.
If you visited my blog lately somehow the word identification got turned on (probably with the upgrade) and hopefully it is turned off now. If it is still on for any reason please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by again I am really blessed to have so many friends stop by so please leave a little love so I know you were here!!!
word for the day: God is great and greatly to be praised!!!

Today's Challenge

Today's challenge is a new one for me. I've been going to do this one for a long time but never seemed to time it right.

This one is a sketch challenge and it is brought to us by Techno Stamper (Mary Jo), this is my first time to play here. If you wish to see the original sketch you can find it here. .

The stamp is a digital from Digital Two for Tuesday and here is where you can find these digitals. they offer great freebies.
Background papers are by Deena's Penny Lane. Used TJ Whisped Frame (one of my favorites) on both image and flowered background. Technique Junkies can be found here. . I also used Inkssnetials Glossy Accents by Ranger. It really shows up in the scan and is quite cool giving the card a little dimensions.
Well guess that's it have a great Tuesday and a blessed week!!!

Squigglefly Challenge 58

Hi Everyone,

I'm in the mood for challenges this week. This one is for Squigglefly Blooms Challenge #58. On TJ they had a tech called Whimsy Background where you highlighted, with white gel pen, around the image. This is a take off of that. The flowers were way too dull so the gel pen gave them some pick up!!!

The gladiola stamp is part of a set of flowers on Squigglefly, they have a beautiful daisy in the set too!!

Background technique is called Faux Handmade Paper it is really pretty IRL, it has a metallic gold shine to it.

That's it for tonight watch for tomorrow for another challenge. I am hoping to do one each day. So far I've done three and tomorrow's post will have my third card and what challenge it is. So join me again tomorrow!!

Gingersnap Challenge GC62 Markers

Hi Everyone,

Here is a cute image by Sylvie Ashton that I used for color with Markers, a challenge on Gingersnap Creations. This was a fun one to color. For the Flower I cut out a flower from the background then attached it to some card stock and curled the edges. The small flowers are made with the faux felt Technique from TJ Junkies. The Whisped frame is another Technique from TJ Junkies. I used pearls from Memory Box down the right side and on the small flowers I used Gold Pearls from Liquid Pearls. For the large flower used a small gold flower from my stash.
For the coloring I used Copic Markers. Background paper is from Hot of the Press, Paper Pizazz- Retro.
Thanks once again for stopping by and I really appreciate all the love you all have left on my previous card!!!

This weeks Challenge 19


This was made for another challenge for Sassy Cheryls. This weeks Challenge 19. I had to do a 4th of July card and I had started it when I saw this weeks challenge. It is a layout. What a cool layout too!! Check out Sassy Cheryls blog to see all the great artwork and of course check out her store .

This of course is another of Sassy Cheryl's digis. It is called Patriots Remembered. This is also for a swap for July with a dear friend and I have one more to make for another friend...I also got Cheryl's I Pledge Allegiance and I will post that one here when it is done. I want to do the same layout I think... ADD SECOND CARD 7/7/20

This one also was colored with Copic Markers...Love those markers...would love to own them all but the cost is out of I have learned to blend the colors I have.

Once again thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have a great and blessed week!!

Another Challenge

Good Morning,

Well this challenge is for Sassy Cheryl's and it is the very first I have done for her. She has the neatest stamps and I have a few...Although I never have done a challenge I have used her digital stamps several times. She is having a sale right now 20% off...I have to go shopping myself after I post this!!! This stamp is called Dance Partners..the saying I generated from the computer. I thought the saying was perfect...I did this as a card but now I'm thinking of framing it and using it in my craft room as a reminder!

The challenge was to use blue, peach and beige...beige came out a little darker but it goes so well with the peach because it has a pinkish tone. Colored with Copics and the punch I used is a Martha Stewart punch.
That's my story for today!!! Hope all you wonderful stampers have a great weekend and a stamping one!!!
