I Knew When I Met You~

That an adventure was going to happen.

I love that sentiment.

Almost as much as I love the Petunia Gets A Piggy Back image that accompanies it.

My card~

Bee Friends

You just have to smile looking at those two together.

A close-up~

Bee Friends Close

It reminds me of a certain little girl running around my house. He he.

It’s A Piggy Polaroid!!

Sometimes you work on a project and it just makes you happy.

That’s exactly how I felt working with this adorable little piggy from the My Favorite Things The Whole Herd stamp set.

In fact, I think I giggled the entire time.

My card~

Piggy Close

I simply stamped three of him on a sheet of Post It paper and cut them out to use as my mask.

Then I would stamp my pig, cover him with one of the masks and repeat until I had my entire Polaroid area filled with adorable piglets.

This was a great way to play with various Copic pinks and practice blending them, since I wanted several different shades.

As an added bonus my little piggy polaroid was spotted and featured on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog!

And that makes me squeal with delight.

I Like Big Mutts~

And I can not lie.

The family and I saw that phrase on an animal clinic sign the other day and laughed about it for the rest of the day.

Of course, I had to explain it and the song to the kids. Sigh.

It also meant I had to use it.

My card~

Mutt

I used the adorable two sided hanging puppy from the My Favorite Thing’s You Make My Tail Wag stamp and die set.

A close-up~

Mutts

Not only is my puppy peeking at us from the front, but when you open the card you see his big…

Mutts-Inside

He he.

And the sentiment~

Mutts-Sentiment

Silly I know, but it makes me laugh.

However, probably not my best idea since my five year old is now singing the song repeatedly. Sigh.

Hello Friend~

So, the 30 Day Coloring Challenge is over.

For now.

But, I loved every minute of it.

Especially since I learned a few things.

Like different methods for masking your stamped images, so  you can add more stamps to your card or color backgrounds like I did here.

My card~

Hello-Friend

I stamped my little girl image, masked her with a simple additional cut out of her and stamped my sentiment.

After I colored her, I re-masked her and used my inks and sponge to color the background sky.

A close-up~

Hello Friend Close

In the future I’ll be brave enough to create a mask of my sentiment or perhaps get a tad bit closer to my little girl, but for now I’m good.

Remember I have the cutting skills of a five year old.

He he.

Put Some Oomph In it~

Would you believe me if I told you I made this layout way back in February at the Doodles Retreat?

All but the finishing touches.

It’s just been sitting waiting for me to blog about it and add it to my Disney 2014 album.

Since I’ve been spending the month of June coloring, I haven’t had time to even think of starting a layout.

So, this is the next best thing.

Right?

My layout~

IMG_6837

My Prince Charming is trying to pull the sword out of the stone while the kids all ride the carousel at Disney World.

Isn’t he handsome?

Which is good since he wasn’t quite strong enough to get that sword out and become the ruler of England.

A few close-ups~

I used Simple Stories Say Cheese I and II Collections to make my layout.

Now I’m hoping to find a moment or two to work on a layout.

Hopefully, I’ll have better luck than Travis did.

He he.

Happy Father’s Day!!

This little guy just makes me smile.

Meet Milton from Stampingbella.

My card~

Favorite

I colored him for Day 19 of the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker.

30 Day Color Challenge 2

For whatever reason I thought he’d be perfect for my Father’s Day card for my Dad.

A close-up~

Favorite-Close

Especially when paired with my sentiment.

The inside~

Favorite-Inside

Funny, right?

At least I think so.

My sister, Amy, might not agree.

I saw the phrase somewhere online Friday.

I think it might have even been a stamp, but I can’t remember where I saw it or even find it now.

So, I simply used Photoshop and my printer to create my version of it.

Underneath Milton is a printed paper from Simple Stories I Am collection which lists many of the qualities that I think my Dad instilled in me.

That makes my card a little sweet and a lot sassy.

Just like me.

Hello Graduate!!

I can hardly believe that our good friend’s daughter has graduated from High School.

Where has the time gone?

I can still remember the day she was born.

Aww…I’m getting all teary eyed just thinking about it.

My card~

Graduate

I used a Wryn Graduate digital stamp from Tiddly Inks that I colored to match Morgan’s actual gown and sash.

Luckily I had just watched a Sandy Allnock video on coloring white images.

A close-up~

Graduate-C

Not too bad I think.

Except for where I thought her hair was the stash and colored it blue.

Sigh.

Anyway blue hair or not I know that this graduate is going great places.

Just to note that it’s Day 20 of the 30 Day Color Challenge.

Amazingly enough I’m keeping up.

Yippee!
