Aug 28 Birthday Cow

Well, Well we are in the last week of August already.
I can't believe that summer is on it's last legs so to speak. I am really hoping to get a long warm autumn. That would be so nice , to have the leaves stay on the trees and have all the warm fall colors embrace the harvest time.
I have been busy coloring a lot of the new great images by the fabulous designers at Whimsy stamps the last couple days. They are some beautiful digital images. Sunday is September 1 already so you know what that means Whimsy's blog hop will take place, I hope to see you stop by again on Sunday and check out the great card designers by the Digital stamp team using the new September images from Whimsy Stamps.

This is my card for this weeks post I'm hoping that it inspires you to be creative.This image can be found at Whimsy Stamps and is created by crissy's digi's. It's called Birthday Cow, a super cute image to work with. I hope you enjoy and hope to see you back on Sunday Sept 1.

A closer look at the colored image, I also made an attempt to make the balloons look see through. It turned out pretty good being my first attempt and all.
Supplies: Copic markers, Bazzill cardstock, Stampendous sentiment stamps Memory Box Die cut Quinn Flourish, Offray ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by
Hope you have a fabulous day!

Inspiration card Aug 15

Great to see you again!
I have been busy, busy again. It seems that things go bursts of busy in my life. That I won't be busy or doing to much in a day then all of a sudden it gets super busy with a million things that all have to be crammed into a couple days. I had planned a little get away for a couple days with my daughter, then a unexpected appointment came up so things got rearranged. It all worked out but changed a few plans, nothing major. Our get away just happened a bit later that's all. Crazy how stuff happens. So I get a couple days away with her, I am glad everything has worked out. I'm hoping that things get a little more organized and less chaotic from now on for a little while anyways. Ya right, LOL. 
I have been coloring some really great images from Whimsy Stamps and now will be making some inspiring creations to share. This cute little image is called Big Love from Marika Collins. I tried doing something a bit different with the image I tried using a glaze pen for a different effect, it turned out ok but the photo had a lot of glare cause of the glaze. I tried retaking the picture but could not get the clarity that I wanted.
So this is my inspiration card for this week, I hope you  can be inspired to create something different and wonderful today.

I tried something different using a sewing zipper to make a flower. I like the effect that I got. I've never tried this before it was easy so I'm sure I'll use this technique again.
Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, Spellbinders- Label Eighteen, standard circles, Large inverted scalloped circle, Memory box Fresh Foliage, Penny Black sentiment eloquence, Tim Holtz bricks embossing folder. 

Have a super wonderful day
Thank you for stopping by.

August Challenge card.. Clean and simple

Welcome back to my blog!
It's raining here today and suppose to be that was for a few days, hopefully not to long cause July zoomed away. I would really like to enjoy August before we get into fall and thrown into winter again. Time zips by so darn fast.
So the next few days will be a perfect day for making cards and crafting cause you really can't do to much outside on days like this.
The challenge at Whimsy this month is clean and simple. 
What is your take on clean and simple, some people add a few things just not as many as they typically would. I think clean and simple is not to much for patterned paper, no embellishments, and clean lines. So this is my challenge card for clean and simple, very faint patterned paper with one piece of ribbon and a bow. This card to me could have a ton more stuff on it. If you have seen my work before you will know what I mean, and is you haven't been here before thank you for stopping by. I love the detail of flowers and embellishments. So I really hope that you decide to make a card and put it in our challenge this month at Whimsy for a chance to win some terrific stamps from Whimsy.
This stamp is from designer Marika Collins and is called Summer. If you would like more information about the details of the stamp click here. You should click here and jump over to the Whimsy inspiration blog to join in on our challenge clean and simple for this month, or to just get inspired to create something wonderful today.

A bit closer look at the image "Summer"
Supplies: Copic markers, Kaiser patterned paper., Bazzill cardstock, Offray ribbon.

Not a very big supply list!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Anything Goes
Creative Moments Challenge: Sea/Seashore/anything goes
I also added it to the Make it Monday Challenge

It was wonderful to see you again
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happiest.
