Softpencil Tuesday - Sunny!

Good morning! I hope this finds you doing well...I'm trying to stay cool. We've had one heck of a HOT summer!! 100+ temperatures for days/weeks straight is starting to wear me out!! Plus I now have gotten some stupid summer cold! Oh well - you know who brightens my day? SUNNY of course!! Elizabeth released 3 new sunny images and I decided to use SUNNY AND A BUTTERFLY.

My Mom's birthday is this week so I made this card for her. I know Sunny will make her smile too! Check out the wonderful samples from the design team (their blogs are on my sidebar) and head on over to Softpencil Studios where you can pick up SUNNY AND A BUTTERFLY plus many other wonderful digital stamps for your collection!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheery Wishes

Have a birthday coming up? Well then this new digi, CHEERY WISHES is just perfect for you! How cute is she? And of course change the colors and it will be a perfect boy bear, too! I added a little Crystal Stickles to give it some bling. Since I'm just getting back into crafting after a 2 month hiatus, I decided to do a little sketch searching. I found this cool sketch over at RETRO SKETCHES...
It was fun to cut out my image instead of just having the "normal" square/rectangle/circle/oval shape I always seem to have. I used October Afternoon, Cakewalk paper. Hexagons are all the rage and I picked up a new Die-namic die at my LSS so I could be hip, lol!

You can pick up Cheery Wishes in Mabelle's Whimsy & Stars Studio Store today. While you are there check out her other new digi, Little Princess.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Softpencil Tuesday - Ratiny's Dad

I've been on a little break and decided it was time to come out of hiding by participating in Elizabeth's new digi release...I'd like you to meet Ratiny's Dad. He looks so good with his wonderful mustache!

One of my favorite sketch blogs is Mojo Monday so I decided to use one (#248) from a couple of weeks ago.

I wanted to make the card for my dad so I used blues, greens and a touch of yellow. Since my Dad has always had a mustache I thought it would perfect for him. Some people are so clever with sayings. Me, unfortunately, not so much. I tried doing a Google Search for mustache quotes but didn't get the fun quirky ones I was hoping for. So I just decided to write this...

You can get Ratiny's Dad in Softpencil Studios Shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm hoping to get back into crafting. My sister is having her first baby and I've been busy creating things for that as well as a first year album. SO much has been going on with family and I have pictures to share so hopefully later this week I'll get some time to set down and bring you all up to speed :D I have to say I've missed you all...and am looking forward to checking out all the wonderful blogs in blog land!
