Where does the time go ?

Hello Friends, How are you? How is your week going???
I can't believe that it's the middle of another week and time for another Simon Says Challenge. This week the challenge to design a Birthday card & you can get more of the details here plus see what the DT has created to inspire you. As you may know each week a random winner is selected to receive a $50.00 gift certificate. :)
Happy Birthday
I was lucky ...so lucky to score this NEW Spellbinder called " Floral Doily Motifs " This is something I recommend to put on your wish list and you will be able to purchase it here any day once the new release arrives. I use Spellbinder "nestablilties" so often that I can't live without them.

Happy Birthday
This  Valentine stamp called "Owl Be Yours" is perfect for a wedding card, birthday card or an everyday card. I inked up the parts of the stamp with the corner of my ink pad on some white card stock that was cut from the doily die cut. Stamp another owl, heart and leaves to cut out. Color your cutouts with some browns and blues listed below in the thumbnails *they will take you directly to the store*
Distress your cutout doily with Worn Lipstick distress ink & stamp with this paisley outline stamp. You will find it easier if you have a craft mat and a distressing tool. (Have you ever seen my distressing background tutorial? If not here it is)

Add some wood-grain lines with a black marker to your branch and color. Add lots of dots with this gel pen..it never fails me. For the eyes I added a layer of white enamel and once the eyes dry add another layer of black enamel. The enamel really makes the eye POP in person. Add some gems and my NEW favorite ribbon and you are finished.

I almost forgot one more detail that I added to my card. I backed the distress doily with some white paper and added some paper piercing. Normally I would skip this step but, recently I purchased the right tools so it's so easy to add these extra touches. I used this mat and this safe, handy tool by ranger.
As always I am incredibly grateful for you stopping by my blog. Many Thanks, Kathy

P.S. Scroll down to see Penny Black's new weekly challenge for this week. Did I say glitter??

It's Easter Week at Penny Black

Hello Friends, This week on the Penny Black Blog you find Easter cards all week. I hope you will find some inspiration to make cards for the special people in your life for the Easter holiday. Today my card is the feature at the PB blog :)

Sending Happy Thoughts
To create this little scene I stamped the grass with some green ink and colored the blades of grass with some Copic markers. I used a piece of paper to mask off the grass then added the distress ink to create a dirt road appearance.

Sending Happy Thoughts

I stamped the wheels and eggs on some scrap paper then cut the eggs off of the cart. Once you cut the eggs out turn them over then add a lot of glue and lots of glitter. Wrap with ribbon.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Use a blade to cut out the inside of the wheels. Just draw a jagged edge on one of the eggs for the crack. The sentiment is from SRM stickers and the ribbon is from May Arts.

Hello Friends, Today I have a quick share for you. These are two cards that were in the spring Penny Black catalog.

I adore this stamp. Don't you love a blank canvas like this chef's hat. I used my favorite paisley background stamp on it to give it a fun spin.

B.D. dreams
I used a combo of Copic markers and Tombow. I like the warn look on the VW. For the sentiment bubble I traced a sticky note to get the fun shape. I added Glossy Accents to the head lights and the hub caps.

Many of you are asking me where you can purchase these stamps. If you click on the thumbnails they will take you directly to a store with wonderful customer service.
Have a great week! Hugs, Kathy
