Pink Cat Challenge HOOT HOOT HOORAY!

Jun 30, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

If you are just checking in this is post #2 for today! I have 2 samples below this one 😀

Today I was due to post a bit of a challenge card for Pink Cat Studio.

Valerie issued us all a sketch challenge 😀 Love the sketch!


 I didn’t print it-I just “thought” I had is memorized, and away I went creating.

Well now that I have done that and uploaded them together, you can see just how loosely I interpreted it!




This set isQ.T. Hooty. Be sure to check all the other DT member blogs for their take on the challenge. You can find each one in my side bar. Also check the Pink Cat Studio Blog later today for the collection of samples 😀 Oh and the guest design team member contest 😀

SOOOO……..Instead of scallops I used flowers. My ribbon didn’t run across the bottom (OOPS) And in place ot a saying (mine is in the wrong spot), there is a flower border.

Now what did we learn form this lesson?

1) Print your sketch. Don’t rely on memory :C

2) Sketches can really be a starting point for inspiration for a whole new look! LOL!

That all being said I would LOVE you all to play along! I think if you could use this card as a COLOR challenge that would ROCK! If you have any Pink Cat Studio stamps then try to use those. If not go buy some! LOL! Kidding (sort of). Use what you have and send us a link here so we can see your take. For a double challenge try the sketch AND color combo.

NOTE: there is no time frame for any of my challenges. My goal is to INSPIRE you to stamp, not stress you out. OK!

The colors are like-white, teal, sky, and coral (or guava).

I look forward to seeing your take 😀

Be back tomorrow where I think I have 3 posts!! WOW! Don’t miss those.

Fly into summer

Jun 30, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

Boy is it HOT here. Off to the pool we go again today!!! The kids just love it. I need to get a summer pass I think. I also need to get them all into swimming lessons. Its hard because the times they offer interfere with me getting Alexa from summer school and so I may need to do a night class. It freaks me out that they can’t swim. I have awful fears about kids and water. So hopefully I get the info I need to get them signed up.

Thanks for the love on my ice cream come favor. I wasn’t sure I like it! I almost didn’t even post it! LOL! I was like “Is it bordering cheesy?” But I guess not 😀 So thank you. I love that MFT Heres the Scoop set! I am guessing you all do too.

Well my class yesterday  rocked! My class girls are awesome, and so make my day. I am so happy to keep seeing some familiar faces each one I do 😀 Makes me feel like they actually like me 😀 They are all hoping I will swing a class for July but it just might not work. We will see. I really like to make the summer fun for my kids. Since I cut back on DT work I may be able to do it, but am not pushing myself. I want to keep it FUN!! If inspiration strikes, then we are a go. I know people are waiting to see new class kits from me too-so again, I will see 😀 I’m sure I will have plenty for holiday gift ideas 😀

OK I have another Storage Unts, Ink & More sample to share today. If you haven’t entered the MOTHERLOAD of GIVEAWAYS-LAST DAY!!! So run 😀

Tomorrow is the BIG release. We all agreed that this release was too long to make everyone wait 😀 So next month will be shorter.

Here is a super simple card using Butterfly Garden. I kept it clean, and let the dragonflies just float off the card section.

Colored with Copic’s and a little bling on their wings 😀

I love the summer colors. This is the Core-dinations paper in the Reflecting Pool, Mediterranean Pool & Artic Pool. You would NOT believe how many colors this company has! HOLY amazing.

Now Coredinations is different because the center is a lighter shade. Weather or not you tear, its still a cool paper, with great texture on one side, smooth on the other.

You may just give them a try.

Now one more with Butterfly Garden


This is a pull out tag 😀 I wanted to show the paper torn.


This is the Thimbleberry, Vavavoom, and Pansy Purple. Paper is American Crafts 😀

I used the Art Glitter, acetate, and glitter technique for this (yes again I love that technique, and told you that you would get sick if seeing it here).

Note: there are other pretty butterflies in the set! I just am so in love with this particular one.

Tomorrow I think I have THREE posts I need to do! WOW! Lots of eye candy this week!!! Keep checking in. And people wonder why Im not online chatting all the time! LOL!

So that is it for this post, off to create another, so be right back~
