Oh I am so happy it's Friday because it's been a long week and I finally had a small chunk of time to make a card...feels so good! I'm so sorry that I haven't visited any of your blogs. We have workmen 24/7 in our house and I can't focus or concentrate on anything. I made this Thank You card
for the author of this book.
Her mom sent me a copy and it's such a treasure! It was great to reach for some of my SRM stickers...so speedy and
such a time saver.
Supplies: Hero Arts Birds and Branch # CL337,
Soft Blossom Ink, Grass Chalk Ink and the butterflies are cut from HERE
One thing I have been doing is walking with my lovely neighbors in
the morning and making these green shakes. I was surprised how yummy this is. So light and refreshing too!
Here is the recipe:
1 1/2 Cup coconut milk or water
3 large leaves of kale
Some fresh cilantro or parsley
1 inch piece of ginger root
Put in a blender liquids first. Then mix away. If you make it I would love to know if you love this too.
I hope you all have a lovely and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Hugs,Kathy
The challenge this week is to create a bookmark and I think it's a great idea. My mom is an avid reader so I took this opportunity to create one for her for this Mother's Day. The image was easy...I have a digi fairy that drops these awesome images in my inbox every so often so I get real excited to create. You can get this image designed by Jackie Mathews at Squigglefly HERE . The challenge details you can find on Squigglefly's blog HERE .
Hero Arts: Friendship Definition #CG125 (background on petals)-Screen, K5107 (on flower pot)-Starburst Lace, S5317 (on bottom of kraft)-Happy Mom’s CL334 (sentiment) -Punch EK Success Open Scallop-Ranger Distress Inks
I had fun coloring this adorable image. Yes, you guessed it...I used Copic markers, cut the leaves, stamped them and the flower pot then glued them onto another image. The first paper I made a long time ago with some color washes. I love how the ribbon fit right into the loopy boarder and I added Glossy Accents on the ladybug and eyes. The punch is from EK Success. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Kathy
Just a fun quick share.... Can you see the little guy's golden tooth?
I wanted to let you know that today is the second day of SRM and Bo Bunny's Bunny Hop HERE are the details. If you didn't hop on Thursday you might want to consider it because there is chance to win a SRM Stickers Prize Package. Also they will be choosing a random
Hopper from each day and a card sketch challenge with another chance to receive a prize package. I hope you have a wonderful weekend !
The bird stamp is from the Paper Source, background and branch is from Hero Arts and Bo Bunny Paper.
I'm so happy you are here and I bet you just came from the oh so talented Amy's BLOG . Just in case you missed the details for the hop it's pretty straight forward. What's required is to hop to each blog and return to SRM
Stickers BLOG and leave a comment that you have completed the Hop. A random commenter
will be chosen from each day's hop participants to receive a SRM
Stickers Prize Package!
I really LOVED working with my Bo Bunny papers, gems, buttons, ribbon and chipboard! Look at this yummy chipboard flower
Did you know you can color chipboard? I added some color with Copic markers and many white dots with a gel pen. I also traced the outlines with a black pen so the colors would pop more.
I loved this paper so I decided to cut out the brown scallop shape and add pop dots to frame the flower and give the card lots of dimension. Did you know these big yummy gems are from Bo Bunny too.
Here is the sketch challenge for the hop and my interpretation .
All the sentiments on these cards are from same sheet of SRM stickers and they can be purchased HERE . Notice this chipboard.....it looks just like a firecracker to me so I thought it was perfect to combine with the July 4th stickers. All the words in the background are from the same sticker sheet.
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you have found some inspiration. YOUR NEXT STOP WILL BE the talented (and digital designer) JEN MARTAKIS .
