Book is the inspiration "word" this week at the CASology challenge blog.  A home can never have too many books, they are the window to the world.  I have a few stamps with books and I chose this little stamp set from Stampendous for the challenge.

I used watercolor pencils, a pop dot for the apple and scorred a few lines in the top of the banner.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you're enjoying the book you're reading :)

Back to School

Back to School is the challenge this week at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge, check it out HERE.  I stopped at Hobby Lobby the other day and they were having a big stamp sale, I was so surprised to see a nice set of Graphics 45 stamps and snatched them up right away.  I used one of the stamps from the set for my card:

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon :)

Happy Birthday!

There's a Happy Birthday challenge over at Mo's digital challenge blog, OH! my mistake, over at Bronte & Bella's challenge blog, check it out HERE.  They are also having a call for 2 guest design team members - hop on over and check it out. 

This is without a doubt my favorite digital stamp from Mo, it's so fun.  I sing with my dogs all the time and little Bronte howling to the Sax is just so darn cute.  Here's my card:

I added some gold stickles to the saxophone, used watercolor pencils to color the image and added some gems and polka dot paper.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Now, go ahead and get your "SAX" on!

A Number Card

I made this card today for the challenge over at the Less is More challenge blog.  Unfortunately, the challenge is for a One-layer card with numbers and I didn't realize that when making my card, so it isn't exactly one-layer.  Oh well.  I like this card so here it is, won't be entering it in the challenge just wanted to share it here :)

I used paper from the Simple Stories 6X6 pad and a Hero Arts stamp with some of the verbiage blocked out so I could just get the "friend". 
Thanks for stopping by, Friend :)

Fusion Hypothesis #15

I'm playing along with the challenge, Hypothesis #15, at the Fushion Blog this week.  I took inspiration for my card from the photo half of the fusion:

Here's my card:
I've had this little stamp set from Crafty Secrets for a long time.  Hope you like my card.
Thanks for stopping by today :)

Did someone say BUBBLES :)

Penny Black stamps, what's to say, they are so nice.  I recently added this little "Bubble Girl" from PB stamps to my collection and knew the perfect challenge would come along to put ink to her; and it did not once but twice - 2 challenge blogs  Inkspirational Challenges and Simon Says Challenge are featuring the challenge "Anything Goes" this week, so here's my card with the sweet, little Bubble Girl:
I added some stickles to the bubbles, coloring with watercolor pencils and the birthday wishes circle is a Hero Arts stamp.
Have fun this week-end and get yourself some BUBBLES!!
