All Cracked up

Hi there!!! I'm sneaking in with one last card for this month. Whew!!! I broke down on Saturday and bought some DP which has me inspired to create. Who knew new paper could get your mojo flowing again? LOL!!! As soon as I saw this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, I knew I had to play. For my card, I have used the Huggabugg from Stamping Bella called "Cracked up Huggabugg". I love how bright and fun the card feels.  

I'll be back in the next few days with a fun new card for you!!

The inner artist in you

Apparently I didn't pay close attention to my blog and the fact that my Bellarific Friday post didn't actually post.. Oops!!! So needless to say my post is a couple of days late. Yikes!!! This week we had a fantastic sketch to work with so I decided to ink up one of the new Uptown Girls called "Abigail the Artist".  I stamped the image with Archival black ink and then colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. 

Next week's challenge is a fabulous inspiration challenge. Check it out!! 

You have until Thursday night to get your card into Emily at

Keep moving

Hi there!!! I had a little bit of free time to play yesterday so I decided to whip up this clean and simple card in hopes that Spring might decide to make an appearance. Most of the card has been made using a variety of dies. I then stamped the sentiment from the Stamping Bella set called "Flora the Cyclist". 

Easy peasy, quick and easy!!

All about Babies

I had a bit of free time over the weekend so I got busy and decided to start a stash of baby cards.  Stamping Bella images to the rescue!! For my first card, I have used a Mo Manning image called Spit Happens. The image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Easy peasy!! 

My second card uses the Uptown Girl called "Brynn and her baby shower". The layout for my card is last week's Mojo Monday sketch. 

Don't forget you still have a couple days to get your cards in for this week's Bellarific Friday challenge.

Congrats Bellarific Style

Hi there!! Another week, Another Bellarific Friday!!! I've made a few cards this week and realized I haven't posted any of them so you'll be seeing more of me the next few days. This week's Bellarific Friday challenge was a great sketch which I'm sure I'll use again.  For my card, I have used the Uptown Girl called Ava Loves to Celebrate. I've coloured her with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I then paper pieced Ava's dress.

Time for Wine...

Hi there!!! This week at Stamping Bella we had a fantastic inspiration pic to work with. I was not only inspired by the fabulous colours in the image but I wanted to somehow incorporate the seating. And voila!!! Reilly needs to relax to the rescue!!! I stamped the image with Archival Black ink and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. The chair was stamped and paper pieced. 

Talk about fab inspiration pic eh? 

Next week's challenge is a sketch!!! So get those ideas going!!! 

You have until next Thursday to get your card to Emily at!!!!
