SS 398: Best Fishes

Good Morning Peeps.

It's Saturday and that means it's time for another Sketch over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We have a fun new sketch and the return of a favorite sponsor: it's Tammy from A Day For Daisies.  Tammy is providing our winner a voucher for $12 to use in her shop.

I gotta say that I adore clean sketches.  They allow the images to really shine.  I'm using one of my older ADFD images: Birthday Mermaid.  It's not in the shop anymore (but I bet if you were to ask Tammy nicely, she could find it for you)

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations and give them some love. I hope you will give the sketch a try!

I'm also joining in the "Pretty In Pink" theme over on Dragonfly Journeys

DP: Fab 'n' Funky Sponsorship


This is my second post of the day.  If you are looking for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 post, scroll on down!!

Hey ... guess what I woke up to this morning?  Blue skies!!  Yes (insert fist pump here)!! We got 2 feet of snow in all and now the process of digging out begins.

Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Fab 'N' Funky Challenge blog.  Their theme ... All Creatures Great and Small.  I used the Doodle Pantry image: Too Sweet Turtle to make my card.

I'm using the sketch from over on the Catch The Bug challenge site except that I rotated it ... and moved the image ... and added some brads and a sentiment.  Yep, it's EXACTLY the sketch.

SSW2-82: Wishing For Warmth


We have a SERIOUS amount of snow, about 18 inches of new snow.  And it's STILL coming down.  Ugh, the thought of plowing (again) makes me cringe.  I haven't left the house in three days.  I not gonna lie, I miss Starbucks!

But the better news is that it's Wednesday.  That means it's time for another challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  This week we are sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique.  Sally-Ann is offering our winner a £10 voucher to her store.

I'm using the DSB Cute Woodland set for my card.  This fantastic set comes with 8 images and 7 matching phrases.  The gigantic area of Sally's sketch gave me room to try making a bit of a woodland scene.

We've changed our timeline for challenges.  You now have TWO weeks to join in the fun.  We hope that you DO join in.

DP: G'day to You


Check out this sweet little koala!  Each month I keep saying that I'm going to "be more organized" and finish my DT obligations early aaaaaand it never happens.  I'm finishing everything with less than 48 hours to spare (and technically, I have ONE more card to make so it's ready to post by the first of NEXT month).  Ugh.  Next month I promise to be more organized (but I wouldn't hold your breath)

My cute koala is from Doodle Pantry, the Aussie Critters collection.  Laurie makes her digital images in both line art and the colored versions.  Since I was behind schedule, I chose to use the pre-colored version.  Such an easy way to catch up.

I'm using the sketch from The House that Stamps Built blog.  So cute.

Challenges:

Just 4 Kim


I needed another card.  A friend of mine is getting out of the hospital and I wanted to have a card waiting for her at her house when she rolls in.  So I set aside my Valentine stamps and pink papers to make this for her.

I love this little hippo.  He's from Gerda Steiner.  Just a reminder that she's looking for designers for the month of March.

I'm using the sketch from over on The Paper Players blog.  It was cute and worked perfectly with my image.

Hope your Thursday is GREAT!

TMS 336: Holy Cats Batman, more cute kitties


I just got a haircut yesterday but two days earlier, in a fit of anger, I cut my own bangs.  I can honestly say that this is never a good idea!  Now, I look like I'm six years old because my stylist had to cut so much off to even out my own "trim."  Ugh.

But what IS cute ... this little kitty from Gerda Steiner.  He's the freebie this month.  In exchange for using it, I will get the next month's image for free.  Yay, free stuff is good!!  And, other news from the GSD site, Gerda is looking for Guest Designers.  If you like to color really cute images, this might be the challenge for you.

I'm using the sketch over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches site.  It was also super cute.
