Sentimental Sundays Challenge #25

The new Sentimental Sundays challenge is black, white & another color of your choice. Since my daughter was invited to a birthday party for a friend that loves cats, I decided to make a kitty card and matching gift bag.

Sorry the 2nd picture looks a little strange. The gift bag did not fit in my light box and I was in a hurry to get the photo taken so we could leave for the party.

The kitty image is from Pink Cat Studios and is already colored black so you only need to color the bird and the flower. I used digital paper purchased from Sweet Shoppe Designs. I love the black and white design. For other projects I have printed it on colored cardstock for instant DP that perfectly matches my CS. The gift bag is a cheap bag ($0.49 from Target). I like to keep several of these plain bags around to alter or to have on hand so I don' t need to run to Walgreens at the last minute for a bag. (Not that I procrastinate or anything...)

I hope you will join the Sentimental Sundays "Black, White & Another color" challenge this week. You are free to create any kind of project and use any supplies as long as it is a new project and it displays a sentiment.

Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to download the free sentiment set from Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.

While you are out surfing the web today, you might want to stop by Whimsy Stamps to check out the new digi's available from Raindrop Echo Designs. Ann has created some really great new autumn & Halloween sentiments and some new digis designed to work with Spellbinders Nestabilities. They are really cool.

Have a great day! Thank you for looking!

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
