1506 Rainy Day Hippo New Sandra Caldwell Release

Happy Friday!

I'm really loving the Sandra Caldwell Digi images. Every Friday, she releases several new digital images. So we have another awesome release from Sandra Caldwell.  It is called 1506 Rainy Day Hippo.  Be sure to pop by the store and see the other new releases. 

I am guest designing this month for the  Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group. Be sure to stop by there and see the cards by the wonderful Design Team.

Here is my Guest DT card using 1506 Rainy Day Hippo.



I colored my cute hippo with Copic markers. I sponged the clouds using a scalloped circle die cut and my ink was Memento London Fog. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set called Sassy Salutations. 
the three coordinating papers in the background are also from Stampin' Up! but soon to be retired. I placed some nail art stickers on the yellow parts of the umbrella for some sparkle. We all need a little sparkle in our lives, especially on rainy days!!

I am going to enter my card in these challenges:


Colour Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes


Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!

"Bacon in the Sun"

We have a new challenge  at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 

The themes this week are Relaxing,  April Showers, Ho Ho Ho, and Farmer's Day. For my card, I chose the Relaxing theme.  Here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that is so cute! I colored with Copic markers. The image is Bacon in the Sun.


My card is pretty simple. The fun background paper really went well with my theme. I think I got the paper on clearance for a dime.

1501 Made a Cake For U New Sandra Caldwell release

Another adorable release from Sandra Caldwell.  It is called 1501 Made a Cake For U. There are several other new releases today, too, so be sure to pop by her store and check them out.



Isn't this a cute digi? I colored her with Copic markers and then found this great Kaleidoscope paper from Close to My Heart that coordinated so well with the colors I used for coloring. The paper pack is retired now. (Sigh.....................!) My sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set. My finished card size is 5 x 7 inches.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all who celebrate!

We have a new challenge  at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 

The themes this week are Easter Holiday, Rabbits, Easter Eggs, and Christmas Lights. For my card, I chose the Easter Holiday, Rabbits, and Easter Eggs.  Here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that is so cute! I colored with Copic markers.



I cut my image with my paper trimmer and mounted on some pink glitter paper and then mounted that piece onto some patterned Easter paper I got on clearance. It is always fun to look for papers on the clearance rack because they tend to mark down the holiday papers I have found.  Then I mounted that layer onto another layer of pink glitter paper. I think the glitter paper makes it really look festive!  No embellishments on this card. I did take my white Faber Castell Pitt pen and made some little white dots around the bunnies just for some added interest. Not that the image needed it! It is super cute just the way it is. And I put a few bits of clear Wink of Stella on some of the flower centers.

I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!

1474 Hippo Sunbathing by Sandra Caldwell

I am so happy to be guest designing for Sandra Caldwell. Her images are so fun and I can't get enough of them! Especially the hippos!

The Sandra Caldwell image that I got to play with this week is 1474 Hippo Sunbathing. It's Friday, so Sandra is releasing this image for the first time along with several other images. You must go check them out!!


To color my cute image, I used my Copic markers. The toenails were clear Wink of Stella as well as the glitter on her sunglasses. The beachball is actually a brad that I pulled from my stash and the papers in the background were also from my stash. My finished card size is 6 x 6 inches.

Spring Birds

There is a new challenge starting at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 


I chose the Spring Birds theme for my card. Here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that is a silhouette type of image. I really like silhouette images.



I used my Copic markers to create a green/yellow green background for my image called Silhouette Hummingbird Flowers by Bugaboo.  I cut out the circle with my Spellbinders Circles Nestabilities and then found this beautiful printed green paper in my stash of odds and ends. I cut out a banner with my Stampin' Up! Triple Banner Punch and then stamped the sentiment on the banner. I finished off with Stickles on the flowers and a couple of rhinestones for some more bling!

I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!

Here is my card. Hope you will stop by the challenge and see what my teammates have made with the beautiful image!




I colored the image with Copic markers. The embossed layer was embossed with an Anna Griffin embossing folder. The mint colored ribbon and the rhinestones are from my stash.

Taking Selfies

Ha! Thought my title may grab your attention. I don't take selfies because I always think I look hideous!  Haha! But my cute reindeer from Bugaboo seem to be enjoying it!! Santa's Reindeer is one of our themes this week at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge!


It's Friday and there is a new Festive Friday's Challenge and here is my DT card with a Bugaboo image that looked to me as if these cute little reindeer were having so much fun posing for pics!!


The coloring was pretty simple with my Copic markers and then I just let the background gift paper do all the work along with a green ribbon. Very simple Christmas card!  I made the Taking Selfies byline by using my computer and Word.


Bugaboo is always our sponsor for the Festive Friday's Challenge and is giving a great prize of 4 digital images to our lucky March winner! Please visit Bugaboo as they are so generous with their prizes and we simply couldn't have challenges without them!
