Saturday Sketch on Sunday :C

May 20, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Saturday Sketch

Sorry Peeps!

I didnt forget the Saturday Sketch I just got caught up in the shopping I did yesterday, and was busy “playing” so didnt get to post it. Then, I spent some time with the family today. Didnt want to upset them so had to do my MOMMY duty.

Anyway better late than never right?

My Peeps, My Friends

birdie friend

So here it is! Do ya love it? I think its so cheery! Just what I was going for. Love when an idea on paper “works” in reality.

Here is the original sketch.

This layout is especially great for those smaller images you may have collecting dust or tag style stamps. I used my stamps from Green Grass for this one. They are Lil Monsters and Card Greetings . You can also view my card here

The American Crafts ribbon helped me get inspired! I love attaching ribbon with brads, onto a card. Its “different” you know what mean. PLUS its great use of those scraps.

My colors are real red, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip and cool caribbean.

Used my prismacolor markers to color the image. I thought the birdie looked like he was lookin at the other birdie. I don’t know! I just like tha layout and overall execution of this. Of course, I used my Sprite Primas. If you dont have ANY of these you are CRAZY! They are awesome! Love them. The brads are by SEI.

So I hope you get to try the challenge. If so please link it here so I can view it and comment.

Try using your ribbon to inspire your colors. Id LOVE to see what you come up with.

Thanks for playing.

You Rock!

you rock

Thats how I feel about ALL of you!

And my New! Lizzie Anne Designs set.

So…….I made the mistake of going on  DONT CLICK IT!

Anyway too much money spent and 2 days later I got some AMAZING ribbon. I loved the colors in the ribbon tab I used on this card, and it inspired my colors here.

This flower is the Jolies Fleur from Lizzie Anne, and the sentiment is from Sketched Sentiments. Oh I just love them!!!! I of course used my Glue pad, and Martha Stewart glitter in black. I doodled the border.

The Fleur is colored with my Prismacolor markers. Lovin those too. Of course added some bling to the center of the flower. Have I told you I love this set yet? Well I’ll say it again! LOL! I love how it can be elegant, and funky! Lots a cool possibilities with this set let me tell ya.

Hope you like it!

The stamps will be available for purchase May 28th. If you need them NOW you can get them from Jacksonbelle’s EBAY store. Supah fast shipping!

Thanks for looking.

goodies from expo

WOW you girls sure do LOVE to enable! Thanks for all the cool suggestions. Be on the look out for some of the purchases Ive made because of you.

I learned about lots of things I now need to get! I did get off to a good start when I went to the CKU expo in Manchester on Saturday!

My friend Paulette and I, spent a HEAVENLY 5 hours shopping. This is a photo of what I got! Some of the paper is just stacked cause my table was just too small! LOL!

We had to go check our bags because they were too heavy. Many of the places we shopped at qualified us for FREE goodies cause we spent so much 😀 It was SO FUN!!! We then went to lunch at my FAVORITE place TGIFridays.

SO do you wanna hear what I got?

Twinkling H2o’s-never tried them and thought it would be cool-Ill let you know!

Several pks of Crate paper

SEI was like my FAVORITE! Got cool paper, ribbon, buttons, brads, and IRON Ons! Never tried those before. I have had the Heidi Swap iron for 2 years and never opened it.

I also got some white glue stuff that Paulette said I HAD to get, lots a various papers and ribbon for everywhere.

Some piercing templates, and a cool cutterbee piercer too thingy.

A set of Pink Cactus stamps that I ahve been drooling over for a year!

A couple A Muse images.

Velvet flowers and chipboard from Maya Road.

Cool tins (only 2) and wish I got more! LOL!

Some cool paper tape.

Heidi Swapp ribbon for $1! And a bunch of other “cool” stuff. So check in often as I will be doing more product must haves, and using my new goodies! LOL!

Speaking of goodies……..the Random winner selected was #50 Elaine. Email me your address and color choice of Martha glitter! Here is what she writes.

    I have that glue pad too!! OMG what a wonderful product!! I also love the new Martha Stewart line – glitters, stickers, punches – yay!! OK, the other thing that I’ve been hooked on lately is the new line up by K-ology at Michael’s…lots of themes and they have coordinating ribbons, brads (gemstone type), 3-d embelli’s and lots and lots of paper, and die cut chippy letters with glittah and flocking!! Be still my heart!!! Just too much fun stuff for my little wallet!!! I hope I get picked cuz I could use something shiny and sparkly on my doorstep!! ;)
