Pink and Girly

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a New Challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  Ppinkydolls is our sponsor and we would like to thank them for providing the design team with images that we LOVE!

doodlebug 6X6 Paper Sugar Shoppe
doodlebug sprinkles - love assortment

These little images are so fun to color up. I had fun with the pink and girly too, lol.  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!  

Is it Sunday yet? lol.   Counting down for Super Bowl!  Should be a great game.  

I think I will work on my "January" Scrap Page this coming weekend as well.  I really do want to get 12 layouts made this year, at least.   Oh and I'm still walking!  Almost there.  I will be honest, the main motivation here is to not have to start over again, lol.  My leg and behind muscles are begging for a break, lol.   After a short break, we hope to be able to resume this as a daily habit whenever possible. 

Thanks for popping in today.

Love Stories

Hi Everyone,

It's a Holly-Day Monday, time to show you some Inspiration over at Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog.   Did you enjoy the blog hop over there yesterday?  Didn't know about it?  Go read about how Laura is giving away a $20.00 gift voucher each month!  It's also the last day to play in the "B" Challenge for other prizes.

Here is my inspiration today.

I'm on a bit of a count down for Super Bowl Sunday.  This has been a bit of football withdrawl for me, but nothing compared to waiting for foot ball season again, lol.   It will be good for me not to be tied up in 3+ hour games, lol.   Plus I will have more time to spend on other things, like my New Years Resolutions.  Yeah, how are those coming for you?  I'm doing okay, 24/30 days done on my 30 min for 30 days challenge.   But about that scrap page layout each month, lol.  I still have time!!! lol.  

Anyway, I hope you have been inspired to create something fabulous and I hope to see you for tomorrow's challenge as well....

Thanks for popping in,

Moose be your Birthday

Hi All,

Jumping on here real quick to share a card I made today for the Sugar Pea Sketch Challenge and the Sugar Pea Birthday Challenge.

I finally got my hands on this Moose Set, Merry Christmoose, they were sold out for forever it seems, lol.  I thought this cute doodlebug paper - Happy Camper would be perfect for him with the Moose in the background.  I took the Sugarcuts notched heart journal die and used the hearts from it and added some glossy accents, thought they are hard to see in this picture.  

Okay that's all from me.  Thanks for checking in with me. 


Also playing in the Simon Says Challenge - Hearts.

Today's Challenge is brought to you by the letter "B"

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Laughing at this Challenge today, "The Letter B".  It reminds me of the Sesame Street saying, "Today's letter is brought to you by the letter B."  lol.   Shall we break out in a B Song?

So this Bugaboo Boy, called Gus Tidbits, he was printed with printer Black Ink.  I used my new Black Chalkboard ink and put it on so thick it began to sink.  I used Blueprints one for the vertical line and a Big Donut instead of a sign......   Can any one finish this song for me? lol.

Thank you so much Bugaboo for providing the design team with images we got to pick out!  I love these images and the sentiments that accompany them are always a lot of fun to use. I thought  this coffee break paper would be perfect for this image and now I think I need to hoard it away for later, lol.   I love it.

I hope you will play along with us at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week and show us your B's.  You will also want to check out the New Items in the store that Laura has added.

Thanks so much for looking in on me and your kind comments,

I Heart my Puppy

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's my Holly-Day Monday to show you some Inspiration over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog.   Today I have used a cute new MFT Birdie Brown set that is coming to the store soon.

MFT Birdie Brown - You Have My Heart
MME 6X6 - Cupids Arrow

OMGosh I just love this set of stamps!  They are total cuteness.  And I do love all three of my puppies, lol.  Archie Bunker, Lucky Day and Kracken Up AKA Fatso.  So I can't wait to play some more with them....maybe even do a scrap page layout with them as well.  I did make this for someone in mind though, who is crazy about her dog and has been especially awesome lately, so I cannot wait to give it to her.  

I colored this image up with Copics and dusted off the air brush machine for the air and grass.  I also colored the grass die cut.   

Be sure to check out the New Items in The Loves Rubberstamps Store! 

Thanks so much for checking in on me.

No Black Ink

Hello Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a New Challenge on the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  This week we want you to show us, "No Black Ink."  No black ink?  ackkkk.  I always stamp in black, lol.  How about Flannel Gray, do you think I cheated? lol.

I LOVE this little mad scientist, lol. And inking him up in Gray was a bit better than black, that way his crazy hair stands out more, lol.   You cannot see the clear wink of stella shine in the bottles but it's there.  I was thinking if a lab exploded, there would be goo dripping from the ceiling.  Laura has all kinds of cute Paper Smooches in her store.  And the wise dies are coming soon.  I used the Copic W's for the glove and pants, as well as the shirt and the C's for the hair, The B's for the bottle and speaking of the bottle or beaker or whatever it's technical term is, (used to know in College but I forgot), does this picture remind you of it?

Well that's my interpretation and I am entering the paper smooches challenge, lol.  
I'm also entering in the Simon Says New Challenge. - New set of stamps for me. 

I hope everyone is having a great week!!!

I love you "this much"

Hi Friends and Stampers,

I want to welcome and thank all my New Followers!  I'm so excited to see that number go up.

Today is my day to post on the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration blog.   Here is what I came up with.

Simple Stories 6X6 Paper - A charmed life

I just love all these cute Pure Innocent images.  They are so fun to color!  I also love paper piecing them and adding just a touch of color to the clothes for shading.  

I hope your week day goes by really super fast and that you have some time to get inky!  We have one more day of the Anything Goes Challenge and I will be back tomorrow with a new project for the New Challenge.  

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments.
