Two, Two of a Kind

Winnie & Walter are celebrating their 2nd Birthday a little late and they have a bunch of fun challenges up to celebrate with all their fans.

Today I’m sharing a card for the “Two Challenge with Shay”.  For this challenge you have to make a project using the number 2 or two, two colors, two patterns, two layers, two embellishments, two photos, two words or two stamp sets (and so on)...really anyway to incorporate two into your project!

So here’s my “TWO” card…

My card features 2 stamp sets, “The Big, the Bold & the Happy” and “The Big, the Bold & the Extras”, 2 shades of green ink, 2 shades of blue ink, 2 shades of pink, 2 flowers, 2 spot clusters, 2 different leaf stamps, 2 words and 2 layers!  I think that’s enough two’s don’t you?!?!  LOL!

Thanks for checking out my card creation today!

Switch Up Your Shades!

TGIF everyone!  It’s a new month and so that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Power Poppy! Today’s it’s my month to host!

Your Power & Spark challenge is...
This month I want you pull out a coloring medium that you don't use that often.  So if you tend to use Copic Markers for instance, pull out your water color paints or your colored pencils instead!  Let's see you use up some of those not-so-used mediums this month.

For further challenge details, visit the Power Poppy Blog here.
Today I'm also joining along with Kathy Racoosin’s “30 Day Coloring Challenge” over at Kathy’s blog, “The Daily Marker”.  And my challenge falls in perfectly with Kathy’s challenge too! For more about Kathy’s challenge visit her blog here.

So if you follow my blog, you all know I LOVE my Copic Markers so in keeping with my theme of using a colouring medium that I don’t tend to use a lot, I picked up my Derwent Colored Pencils.

Plus, I also printed out the newest digi stamp released TODAY called “Magnolia Sunshine” and sunshine indeed!  Isn’t it darling and sunny?!?  awwww!

Marcella always makes the most amazing bouquets to colour!  She took inspiration for this beauty from all of her Mama’s favourite flowers…

My simple circular sentiment is from the “Azalea” stamp set!

Derwent Colors used:  Sun Yellow, Sherbet Lemon, Apple Green, Felt Green, Iris Blue, Fuchsia, Chilli Red, Sienna Gold, Baked Earth 

Now, off you go and check out what the amazing Bloom Brigade has put together for you today using these five new beautiful stamp sets…

Day number 4 for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge over on Kathy Racoosin’s blog, “The Daily Marker”.  #thedailymarker30day

I’m still working on getting my Valentine’s cards done and in the mail so I decided I was going to play around with some cute Purple Onion Designs stamps today and using my Distress Inks to watercolour with…
I had fun building my little scene using “Bobby” the larger beaver fella, “Timber”, the little beaver, the “Sweet Shop Set” for the hanging hearts and the “Winter Sign”.  Bobby really should have a longer sleeved shirt on since there's still snow on the ground!! LOL!

Thanks for stopping in!

A Little Pizza Love

I’ve been trying to keep up with Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge that began on Monday!  Yesterday I had fun colouring a cute little chef image from SugarPea Designs called “Pizza My Heart”…

I used a simple stencil to create the back ground!
