A Sketch and Something Cute

Happy Friday!

Boy what a long week this has been. It was a suppose to be a short week with the holiday on Monday, but then we had a snow storm and the kids were out on Tuesday too. And then a late start on Wednesday due to ice and now it's snowing again! Ahhhh, winter!

Today is new challenge day over at both Just Magnolia and at Stamp Something. I hope you will stop over to the blogs and check out the samples from my fellow teammates and give these new challenges a go!

First up is my card for the challenge at Stamp Something. This week we are sponsored by Sugar Nellie Stamps and so we thought lets go with "Cute Somethings" seeing as all of their stamps are super cute! They kindly donated stamps for our team to work with this week too, but I couldn't resist purchasing one of the new Simply Adorables digital stamps! TOO CUTE!

I printed the image on Neehah cardstock and then colored with Copics. This image was fun to color as there are "cheat" shading areas that really help with where the colors should go. Then I used some new papers that my sweet friend Crystal sent me recently. I love the gingham prints and the pinks and yellows together. I've embellished with ribbon, a charm, and some flowers.

This card also fits at:
Creative Belli  - anything beginning with "P"  - pink papers
Penny's Paper-Crafty – anything goes
Karber Weekly - DIGI STAMP and Ribbon

Next is my card for this week's Just Magnolia challenge. This week we have a fun sketch from our lovely Donalda, who we all missed while she was away. Welcome back sweetie! This is a sketch I know for sure I will be using again as it would work with so many images!

For this card I used two different pieces of paper from the BG Hopscotch pad which were also a gift from Crystal! I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The images were colored with Copics and then I cut out Tilda and popped her on the cupcake with foam tape. I've framed the images with Lacy Circle Nesties and then embellished with ribbon, sticky pearls, flowers, and some glitter.

This card also fits at:
Freshly Brewed - love or Valentine's themed
Simon Says Stamp - choose 3 items in a straight line from the BINGO
Paper Take Weekly - Ribbons and Pearls
Pollycraft - Pastel Colours

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!
