Bellarific Friday

Good Thursday Morning!

This is my card for the Bellarific Friday tomorrow, it's a sketch!  I made the card for a coworker who is expecting her first baby *how exciting!*  I hope she likes it.  I'm happy with how it turned out - love the purple paper.  It's from my DCWV Nana's Nursery baby boy stack.  Although it's made for boys, most of the paper is very versatile for either a boy or a girl.  The purple ink that I applied around the edges of the images is a little subtle, I think next time I'd add a bit more colour so it can pop.  Here's a look:

I love her pants...  I wish I had some pants like this when I was expecting!  Mind you, I never looked this glamorous when I was pregnant.  Te he he.

Here's a closer look at the image.  I added some sparkle to the accessories and a bit of glaze to the rattle.  I did some shadding, but I think this comes off a little subtle too.

This image makes me want to go shopping...  But alas, I'm off to work.  :(

Have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday to ya,

I've had quite a busy March Break week.  Most of our family was sick, in fact four out of five of us were sick on the same night - all within 1 hours of each other.  We just kept dropping like flies.  One minute we were fine, the next...  Not so much!  We spent most of the week cooped up in the house.   Everyone seems to be on the mend now, so it's back to school and work tomorrow. :(

My card today was inspired by the Kraftin Kimmie challenge #22 - An eyelet here, an eyelet there.  I used my favourite KK stamp named Charlotte.  The paper and accessories are all from my stash of supplies.  The sentiment, which always makes me smile, is from Stamping Bella.

I tried using some beads like glitter.  I don't think it has the same effect.  Maybe next time I'll try to use these like drops of water.  Not sure if you can see?  Here's a closer look at the beads and the eyelets.  The middle eyelet is a flower, but it got a little flattened in the process.

We took the dogs to the dog park this morning. It wasn't as muddy as I expected, which was nice.  The dogs are happy now, so we're off to do some errands and get some lunch.

Thanks for stopping by.

Luck o' The Irish

Hi Everyone!! 
St. Patty's Day is coming fast.  It's time to break out the green!  My card this week was inspired by the challenge at Cute Card Thursday: Challenge 102 - Lucky Green 

I've used my awesome Moonlight Whispers by Kraftin Kimmie Stamp called Lillith, with some of my green paper, green ribbon and green gemstones from my stash.  I used a white base and some purple cardstock to accentuate.  The sentiment is quite old, which is to say that I have no idea of the brand.  I coloured Lillith with my Copic markers and I used some Stickles on her white lace.  I paper-pieced the bottom of her dress with the same paper as the card background although it's hard to distinguish it in the picture.

Here's a look at my card:

I had a little "Stickles" mishap when applying it to the lace, so I had to adjust the location of the gemstones.  When I look at the card, I really want to move those stones over to the edge of the cardstock, but they're covering up a goof - so I just have to "green" and bare it.  LOL

How cute is that look on Lillith's face?  I think my daughter knows how to make that exact same face.  I think it's a gift that all teenage girls assume.  Only she would never allow a frog on her head.  Although I do have a picture of her with a rat on her shoulder!

Good night... and have a pleasant tomorrow!
