With a Little Help

Okay, where on earth do the days go?  It is hard to believe that another month is soon ending and the fourth month is just around the corner.  Between coloring, planning card making classes, studying medical terminology and now a new grand fur baby to babysit, my days are flying by.  

The weather here in southern Alberta has been exceptional, no snow to be seen and some people are saying that the plants are starting to peek out of the ground, so the days of warmer coats is coming to an end, but I fell in love with this gorgeous Art Impressions image and had to color it up.  This is Bench Set available here at One Crazy Stamper, that I have colored with Copic sketch markers and then cut and matted with a Spellbinder die.  The dp and ribbons are from my stash, and the sentiment is one of three that comes with the image.

Thinking of You

The sun is shining, the small amount of snow we received on the weekend has long disappeared and spring is back, so thoughts turn to gardening.  The coming season is celebrated in today's card.

This beautiful image is Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Winnie Peeking out the Window and is available at One Crazy Stamper here.  I have colored the image with Copics, added Flower Soft to some of the flowers, fussy cut it and then adhered it to a Couture Creations embossed card front.

The Bad News is .....

Time for me to show you my latest creation, and today I have one of the hilarious Stamping Bella Senior-itas - love these stamps and the sentiments that are included with the image!

This is Senior-ita Dolores that I have colored with Copics, then mounted on paper from my stash.  I used a old tool, the paper crimper, to make the strip of cardstock behind the image, then added buttons and twine.  The sentiment is the finishing touch.
There is still lots of time to enter the challenge this month to win a fabulous prize, so get busy, and create a awesome project to enter the ANYTHING GOES theme at One Crazy Stamper.

And They Call it Bunny Love

I know that this card is a little early for Easter, but before you know it the season will be here, and I love Mo Manning images, sooooo..............

This gorgeous image called Bunny Kisses is from Penny Black stamps and is drawn by Mo Manning - you can buy it here!  I have stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic Xpress It cardstock and then colored it with Copics.  The image was cut with the Spellbinders Label One die and then the surrounding frame is also from Spellbinders.  The dp is an oldie from Prima Marketing, and the ribbon and the sentiment are from my stash.  All of the edges of the papers were inked with  Memento Toffee Crunch ink, and to finish off the card front I added three pearls made with a Viva Décor Pearl Pen.

Laughter is....

“In Like A Lion, Out Like a Lamb”
How is your month of March coming in?  Growing up we always used to say that if March came in like a lion, it would go out like a lamb, but if it came in like a lamb then expect it to go out like a lion!  So how is your month of March shaping up?
Since it's a new month, it is time to start a new challenge at One Crazy Stamper, and this month we are asking you to create an ANYTHING GOES project to enter and win a great prize.

My card features a wonderful Art Impressions image entitled Laughing (single) that I colored with Copics then cut and matted with a Spellbinder die before layering on older Basic Grey dp.  A great sentiment from my stash and three pearls made with a Viva Décor red pearl pen finish the card front.
