The Sweet Stop Sketch 106

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I have been up late a  lot this week with crafting deadlines and a sick baby so I apologize but this is going to be a fast post.  I do want to say thank you for all of the nice comments and I will be visiting everyone's blogs as soon as I can.  If you would like more details just leave a comment and I can get back to you. I have to say, I am really happy with the way this card turned out.  I love this adorable new digi from Wee Stamps- Spring Bringer and the colors on the paper just seemed perfect for her. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley Inspirational Sentiments.  This sketch is a great one and I hope you will play a long with us at The Sweet Stop this week.
 I am off to get a little sleep before a very busy weekend begins...I hope you have a great one!!

Sweet Peeks Day 5 Tiny Yawns

Happy Friday to everyone!! Today I have another Sweet Peek for you from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I used this cute set called Tiny Yawns to create this door hanger. This set and all of the others will be available May 1st and I know you are going to love them.

I found this wooden frame at Hobby Lobby painted it with Acrylics added felt clouds that I cut by hand and then doubled up the image for dimension.  The paper is from K & Company and the ribbon is from the craft store.  There you have it... an easy and special baby gift.

There are more peeks over at The Sweet 'n Sassy Blog so please stop by and get inspired by the rest of the talented design team.  I will see you again tomorrow with another  great sketch from The Sweet Stop.

Inspiration at My Partner In My Crafting Crime

Good morning!! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, my girls got over their bug quickly and luckily the rest of us stayed well, yippee!! Maybe this week I will get some extra crafting done.  I am working on making a hair color chart to share with everyone. I have one I made quickly for myself by putting together different Copic combos that I have either come up with or collected over the past year.  It makes it so nice to use as a reference.
It is time for another fun challenge over at My Partner In Crafting Crime this week we want to see how you are inspired by this beautiful photo.
 When I saw this photo I immediately knew I wanted to use this pretty Tulips Digital Stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy. I also tried to keep the wedding theme by using a lot of white and lacy elements.
Paper- Cryogen White(my Favorite for Copics), Bazzill
Accessories-Sizzix Snowcap Embossing folder, Flourish #10 and #11, Pearl Swirls Recollections and colored with R83, Ribbon from the craft store,Corner rounder, Stardust Stickles Layered Ovals- My Time Made Easy Cornice Trimmed Oval 
You have two weeks to join the challenge and we would love to see what you come up with.  Please stop by and see how the rest of the wonderful PCC Design Team was inspired too.

And last but not least I had to share the cards my littlest, Addison (3yrs) made while I was working on my card. She loves monkeys, flowers and lots of glue:)
Have a wonderful week and I hope you find time to get crafty.

His Timing is Perfect and The Sweet Stop Sketch 104

Happy Saturday to everyone!! I am sorry I haven't had anything to share this week but I have had a couple of sick kids and a super busy week with school home work and projects. I did manage to get my card done for The Sweet Stop Sketch.  This week there is a spin, Winged Things which also means a prize to be won I love this sketch and I must say, I am pretty happy with my card as well.  The style is different for me but it has one of my favorite things, butterflies.  I have been waiting for the right project to use this paper from DCWV Mariposa stack.  I bet I took 50 photos and couldn't get the back layer to show up well, it is so much prettier in person.  I used this fabulous digi set from Sweet 'n Sassy called New Creature and you can find it HERE.

I colored the butterflies twice to make them look more realistic and give some dimension.  The edges were distressed and I then added Walnut Stain Distress Ink over them. The punch is from EK success and the leaf branch and circles are from Recollections.
E41, E42, E43, E47, E57 
My Riley has made a card to share so please take a look at the post below, she is even entering a couple of challenges so PLEASE show her some love.
Have a great weekend and I will see you Monday!!

My five year old, Riley has made a beautiful card to share with everyone and enter into a couple of kid's challenges so I had to give her a post of her own.  She said she wanted hers to be like Mommy's butterfly card above but with more gems:) She used Sweet 'n Sassy New Creature Digital and the paper is from DCWV Mariposa.

Thank you so much for taking a peek at my special guest designer's card.

The Sweet Stop Sketch 103

Hello friends!!  I made this card in honor of my baby boy Sawyer...ok not so much of a baby anymore but when I saw this stamp it so reminded me of him (see the picture below).  I couldn't resist any longer and I had to get some Lili of the Valley stamps this one is called Hanging Around and the sentiment is from the Boy Oh Boy set. I am totally into making clouds these days, he had to have a sky to fly in.  This weeks Sweet Stop Sketch worked out perfectly with the papers which I have had forever and have no idea what they are (who knew I would need to know these things before I started a blog?)

Hair-E50,31,YR20 Clothes-B97,95,93,91 YR23,21 R08,05,02

See what I mean? He loves this swing.
Now please stop by The Sweet Stop and check out the Sugar Babies fabulous creations HERE.  Thank you so much for visiting me:)
