Sketch Girl 19 meets MFTW

No, it is not a mirage, a miracle maybe :0) !! But yes, I have posted a new card! It seems like FOREVER . . .

This card was inspired by two separate challenges;

Sketch Girl
The new Sketch Girl 19 challenge is up today! It is being sponsored by Sew Easy digital stamps. Click on the link on my sidebar to take a look at all of the challenge details - with the opportunity to win a gift certificate to Sew Easy and DT inspired cards. ETA: Oops! Looks like I'm further ahead than I thought - Sketch Girl 19 goes live tomorrow (May 30th).

Paper Makeup Stamps Makeup for the Weekend challenge this week is a color challenge. I took the liberty of "tweaking" the Bayou Blue color to more of a tealish blue and squeaking in just a peek of the Summer Sun and Perfect Plum (A.K.A purple). Click on the link on my sidebar to hop over to the PMS blog and take a look at the challenge details there!

This card uses image and sentiment stamps from PaperMakeup's May release. At least I'm ahead on ONE thing, I've got a Father's day card done!! Gotta love those monsters :0) For the vertical element in the SG19 sketch, I used ribbon to mimic the shape of a tie to coordinate with Papa monster! It wasn't as wide as I would like but you still get the idea don't you?? I haven't tied to many tie's in my lifetime and had to put the ribbon around my neck to get it just right :0)

I hope you get a chance to play along with one if not both of these challenges. I know the weather and the long weekend are keeping many away, but SG19 goes on for 2 weeks and MFTW is up and running until next Friday!!

Have a fabulous weekend - no matter what your plans are!

PMS Release Review

It's a week in review over at the PMS blog. Today we are reviewing Monsters and Moody's!!

Here's the new Dragonfly Moody . . .

If you like coloring, you'll like these Moody Girls!! They're also great for practicing your Copic skills (which I'm still working on). I think if I was this girl, however, I would be ripping those flowers out of my hair as fast as I could. I hate bugs!! Especially flying ones in my face!!

You've still got time to use that coupon code on the new release, so go check them out. The shop also has cards linked up to the new releases for lots of great ideas!!

Have a Happy Hump day!!

This is Caliope in the tub! She was originally available as a digi, but now all of her cuteness is availablein rubber too. I thought this would be a cute Mother's Day card accompanied by a spa gift card!!
