"Seas" the Day ~

Monday, March 31, 2014

Well it's Monday ~ are you ready?  I'm not either, but seeing this pretty mermaid and
dreams of the ocean are a pleasant thought for me, so I hope they are for you too!

This one is for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge, (hello SSW2 Divas), and the twist this week is to use Mermaids or Fairies.  I used Sketch 204 (rotated).

Hearts on a Cupcake ~

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Isn't she pretty? What I wouldn't give to have hair like that...well and the rest of that body too if I'm being truthful!  I found her at Bugaboo Stamps and I just knew she'd make a cute and girly birthday card!

This is probably the biggest card I've ever made.  It's 6 1/4" x 5" and it's part of my "use what you have" campaign.  I don't even know how many years ago I purchased these but they came with the envelopes, so I figured why not use them.  To go along with the theme I'm using some vintage Stampin' Up paper too ~ Go Me!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Turtle Slippers ~

Monday, March 24, 2014

Are you ready for a new week yet?  I think Mrs. Comfy here is still thinking it's the
weekend!  I love everything about this image; her clothes, her turtle slippers, the kitty, and she's drinking coffee and eating chocolates so what's not to love, right?!
Happy Monday!

Calories on a Cake Stand ~

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I could eat my way around this cake stand easily, is my explanation as to why I titled this one the way I did!  But wouldn't it be some delicious fun?  I printed out 4 of these images (not planned), so I guess I should get to making 3 more!

Have a very sweet Wednesday!

Pinch Proof ~

Saturday, March 15, 2014

I could just squeeze this little ginger!  She is from Phindy's Place, who just happens to be going out of business so if you want her, or any of the other darling images she has, you'd better run over and scoop them up.  I also got some of the Mrs. Comfy images, they crack me up!

I watched some YouTube videos about using pastel pencils to add depth to skin and clothes, so I got two of them to try them out. While I'm happy about the skin, I'm on the fence about the shading of the clothes.  Maybe more practice and I'll feel better about them, or maybe just a different color is needed.  What do you think?

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Well we made it to Friday-Eve and Day 4 of our pre-St Pat's Day celebration!  I have to
thank TracyMac on Splitcoaststampers for the idea to make shamrocks out of the hydrangea flower punch.  I never would have thought of it, and I love the idea!  The pink and green combo has always been a favorite of mine too!

Top 'O the Morning ~

Monday, March 10, 2014

Since St Pat's Day is next Monday, how about if we celebrate here all week!  I had
a great time doing a scavenger hunt for green paper, but of course it wasn't too hard to find really.  It seems almost all of my paper packs have some shade of green in them.  So stay tuned, and I hope you enjoy my wee bit of Irish week!
