  3. Twine: American Crafts grey and white bakers twine.
  4. Paper: Wausau Pewter shimmer paper, white cardstock, background white shimmer and grey trellis David Tuttera (It reminded me of fencing!).

SoSS L is for Legendary Creatures

At Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, the sisters have decided we need a challenge all about Legendary Creatures. I looked through all my stamps, rubber or digital, and didn't see anything I could use!

So I looked on the internet for a Legendary Creature.

I searched and I searched.

And finally, thanks to photo editing software, I got my image.

Here is the Legendary Birthday Fairy-

Do you ever write stuff down hoping to use it one day? That's what I did! I found it looking for other things and the whole card came together from there. The "spotty memory" has been quite frequent lately, and it's like Christmas every time I search for something I've lost-I find treasures I've forgotten about. *sigh*.

And I am entering this at SoSS Legendary Creatures Challenge.

Thanks for visiting!

Easter Challenge at Aloha Fridays!

At the Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge, it's an Easter Challenge! You can win some great images from our sponsor-


I used the Marilyn Bunny from Alica Bel to make this card- 

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils, and I used a decorative corner punch from McGill to dress up the plain square. Another McGill punch was used to make the grass. My Favorite Things Fishtail banners were made with the scraps of dark yellow (computer generated sentiment) and green scraps. I've had the egg paper for so long I have no idea where it came from! I'm on a real mission to use up as many scraps and papers I can because I have too much of both!

Thanks for visiting!

Brown Challenge at MFP

The challenge at Mark's Finest Papers is to have brown as the main color.

Here is my card:

The image is an MFP stamp from the Spring Flowers set, colored with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps "May Hope sustain you" set. The papers are from my paper and scrap stash, and I used Spellbinders Edgeabilities for the yellow strip at the bottom.

A friend of mine just experienced a real tragedy. This past Saturday was her birthday, and her husband passed away that same morning unexpectedly. This card is for her.
