2 Cute Penguin

I recently discovered 2 Cute Ink Digital Stamps- they have the cutest images & they recently celebrated reaching 5000 fans on Facebook with this ADORABLE penguin digi freebie!

I decided to join in on the fun with their Celebration challenge- I couldn't wait to color him :) & the Confetti Crush Challenge at Curtain Call Challenge too! Because what's a celebration with out some confetti (sequins!)?!

It's a bit had to see, but I popped each of of the flags and his hat on some foam tape for some extra dimension.

Farm Fresh Pastels!

Back again!

Did you figure out from my card yesterday that today's Farm Fresh Friday challenge @The Greeting Farm is Pastels???   I started coloring that Birthday Anya... but she ended up being a little too dark for the pastel theme so I scratched that idea and went with some paper piecing instead!  (working hard on those scraps I tell ya!)

I decided to go with Dollie w/Bow and found this cute pinkish/purply plaid paper in my stash I thought would look cute as a spring dress. I also added her pup hiding behind her leg! :)
Pastel FFF 4.18

I popped up her bow and pockets to add some extra dimension too.

& for those of you interested here are the copics I used:
hair: E25, E27, E29
skin: E000, E00, E21, R01 (E35, E37 for her eyes)
pup: E34, E35, E37
grass: YG91, YG95, YG97

Have a FABULOUS weekend- hope you squeeze in some crafty time! :)

Crazy for Cupcakes!

So it's pretty well known that I have a sweet tooth... (who doesn't?!) & I've been craving some cupcakes and cookies lately- may have to remedy that soon with some baking this weekend!

But in the mean time I made this card using Birthday Anya II because who wouldn't want this ginormous-sized cupcake? I colored this image with the intentions that I would use her for tomorrow's Farm Fresh Friday challenge, but changed my mind at the last minute... any guesses on what the challenge might be?

Crazy for Cupcakes

I'm trying really hard at getting better at using my scrap paper.. I'm a hoarder- I feel guilty tossing a piece of paper if I think I might use it later! LOL!  But I've been working on it... I'm in the middle of transforming what used to be our half office/half craft room to a 100% craft room :-D! Lots of organizing is going on and I can now actually SEE what I have to use it! Anyone have fun organizing tips to share?

Until tomorrow!

Carnival Time!

Sorry I'm late!

Popping in to share my latest Chi Chi Memories card...

This week I used the adorable Cute in Glasses girl- something about her made me think of going to a carnival or fair...

Carnival Girl

I pulled out these ticket stamps from a set, Life is a Carnival, from The Craft's Meow (unfortunately, the store is closed) to create my background and for some quick & easy embellishments!

& did you see Chi Chi Memories is having a DT & Guest DT call! Check out all the details on the blog!

AND don't forget to play along with the CCM challenge- hopefully you were able to catch the sweet freebie yesterday (if not you can find her in the store here!)

Thanks for stopping by!

FFF: Color Inspiration

It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm!!

This week Jodi is our hostess with the most-ess, and she chose to do a photo color inspiration challenge! The photo she found is just so fabulous and fun- I couldn't wait to create! Check it out...

I totally love this color combo! Especially since I've been on this bluish-aqua mode lately. I used Anya Celebrates and had to give her some fun PINK hair! :)

Make a Wish

I kept my layout pretty simple to play up the fun, bright & bold colors!

Please head on over to The Greeting Farm blog and check out my fellow design team's wonderful creations! (pssst... I'm not the only one that had pink hair! :))
