Summer Butterflies

Hello Friends, Just popping in to post something and I'm sorry it's been so long . I hope you are have a nice summer with cool breezes.
It's your day
This beautiful butterfly from Penny Black came on vacation with us so I had the luxury of coloring it and taking my time. I used Copics and Tombow watercolor markers on white paper. That reminds me Simon Says Stamp is now carrying Tombow. If you give Tombow a try I think you will be pleased. The blending can be so much easier.

It's your day

The sentiment and the black fancy boarder (in the side) is one of SRM new 2012 stickers .....  I love them!! SRM blog is debuting more and there may still be time for the giveaway. Have a happy day and thanks for stopping! Hugs, Kathy

Lily Pad Palette Challenge

Hello Friends, I can't believe it's Friday and already the summer is racing by. Somehow the older you get the faster time flies. I wish I had more time to visit your blogs and see all of the cards in Flickr. I thought I would during vacation but, that didn't happen. 
Peace Baby
Every month I have the privileged of selecting colors for  the Lily Pad Palette color challenge.
I hope you like the colors this month and I am always open for suggestions if you would like to share you favorite combos with me. I think you will love what the talented Lily Pad design team created with this color challenge here.

I love to sew and find it so relaxing and I try to incorporate sewing into my cards with a gel pen, or a sewing machine or the "Sew Easy". Since I now own this mat and this tool I have been enjoying the look & ease of sewing by hand more often.

Don't you love this digi image? It's from Tickled Pink and this is the image I selected. After printing the image in "word" I colored it with Copic markers.  The sentiment was inked with Worn Lipstick and stamped. Sorry for the short post I must get back to stamping for CHA. Did you see the new Penny Black I am giving away?? Here it is or you could scroll down. As always I am so grateful you stopped by. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. Did any of you spot my card in "The Summer Card Camp 2011" yesterday??I would love to hear AND IF I oew you an email please be patient with me. Your understanding is so appreciated more than you know.

Giving away this NEW AWESOME set of stamps from Penny Black

Hello Friends, I hope you all had a nice weekend and my American friends I hope you had a bang of a 4th of July. Today I am so excited to show you this transparent set from Penny Black. If you were a "Penny Black Club Member" you have already seen this stamp set. If you don't want to miss our NEXT exclusive sneak peek you can sign up here and you won't miss a thing.
 Surf's UP
This Penny Black NEW transparent set is called "Fun in the Sun" and I think it's soooo adorable. 
The list to add your name to win this set is further down the post...after my card details .

Sorry to throw you a link and most of you already have seen how I create these backgrounds but, if you haven't go here for a look. These waves were really easy. Just cut a wavy piece of paper and distress away.

I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. After your first layer flip the paper over for the second color and repeat. Make sense???
When dry cut some of the layers apart so you can stagger them like this.
Surf's UP
For the last layer I added a double layer of dimensional foam.


This is how they look when you cut them apart. Distress your edges to finish them edge off nicely.

Stamp, color and cut your image. I used Glossy Accents on all of the beach accessories. This how I figure what layout will work for me. :)

Surf's UP

YOU MUST PUT YOUR  NAME ON THE INLINKZ LIST  TO WIN THIS TRANSPARENT SET. WINNER WILL BE NOTIFIED AND SELECTED RANDOMLY FROM INLINKZ NEXT WEEK .

I can't wait for you to see the new PB Christmas stamps...oh my they are amazing. Thanks for stopping. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I have photos of Copic storage but, posting will have to wait..so sorry but, I have so many deadlines now :( Thanks for your patience.

SUPPLIES: The new summer stamps are just hitting the stores any day.

Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop with PRIZES



With Love
Hello  Friends, How are you today? I want to welcome you today to "Young Crafters Unite" blog hop!  Two young gals, Britta & Marie have teamed up to join together all of the young crafters in the blogging world. I am not a spring chicken but, I can participate because I am young in theory. To start at the beginning of the blog hop & find out about all of the prizes I recommend that you go directly to "Young Crafters Unite" here.  If you are arriving from Tanya's blog you are in the right place.


With Love
If you are wondering what makes me a "young crafter" I am happy to share that with you. I feel that my love of coloring is what keeps me young and takes me back to the days when I was little!! When I was about seven I remember entering a coloring contest and I still remember the disappointment of rejection...or rather not winning :). I still love the smell of a box of Crayola crayons and I'm happy that 40 years later I finally feel fulfilled in a creative way. I am so lucky to have this forum to share my passion with you.

With Love


We encourage comments  throughout the blog hop because randomly selected commenters will have the opportunity to win a $20 from Simon Says Stamp (1), their choice of stamp set from Paper Smooches (2) or their choice of stamp set from Lawn Fawn (3) The Hop starts at 12 NOON. 


With Love

I used lots of yummy Penny Black stamps on this and great SRM stickers. Unfortunately, I have to post the supplies later. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience but, I have to finish getting ready for my sisters wedding.
The next blog to hop to is Natasha's blog here. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping. Hugs, Kathy


P.S. When I get home from vacation I will share with you my Copic marker storage since a few of you asked and an option for storage too. My twin sister is getting married today and I can't wait to share the flower tree we made yesterday with white paper and Spellbinders. Have a happy weekend :)
