The Little Gardener...

Yep its another Pure Innocence Digi Image...I just think she is so sweet! On this one I cut out the images and popped up the girl and the seed packets...I found the seed package image online and resized them and then added an Elzybell flower stamp I had and a bit of white gel pen to the centers...The watering can was added to the ribbon with a jumper ring...I am so glad spring is here! I love it...Easter is just around the corner...Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Fan Mail...and Starsky and Hutch...

For the challenge over at SCS we were to make a card that was inspired by a childhood memory...I have always been star struck and had my share of crushes...When I was younger I had a crush on David Soul who played Hutch on the show "Starsky and Hutch". People at school use to call me Hutch...One of my teachers would even call on me when I raised my hand as "Hutch" I used to write letters to David Soul in hopes to get a reply...I finally got an autographed picture of Starsky and Hutch in the mail...Its funny my taste has changed I guess because if you ask me now I think Starsky is more my type...But I was young then so I guess I have changed, even though I am still a star struck person...Now I have to play a clip from Starsky and Hutch! LOL!

My husband loves to golf but doesnt get to very often...This would make a great card for Fathers Day or Birthday...for the guy in your life...I started to put a tiny white pearl over the golf ball for fun but I wasnt sure if it would look right since it doesnt have dents in it...maybe I will try it anyway...I added some silver sakura stardust pen to the golf club and it sparkles in person...I am hoping to get some blog hopping done this week I havent been on as much...I hope your having a wonderful day today and a great week coming up! Thanks for taking the time to stop by! Hugs...Cookie

Party Princess...

Hey! Hope you are having a great week so far...I having been playing around with copics trying to get the hang of them...I LOVE the saturation they have but I am far from mastering shading and blending techniques...On this image I added a bit of bling to her crown for fun! I really like the looks of orange and pink together so I went with that...Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hugs...Cookie

Ode to Julie...

Hey! Theres a great challenge going on over at the "A Muse Lounge" in honor of one of my favorite designers! Julie Ebersole! I was inspired by this cute card over at Paper Trufflez...I loved the way she popped up the cart on her card...I didnt have a grass punch and my grass scissors didnt quite cut it (no pun intended...) so I used the MS picket fence punch, paper pieced and popped up the awning, cut out the wheel and put a brad through it for fun, the inside reads "I'd pick you"...I hope I did her proud! Shes a tough act to follow! Love ya Julie!! Hugs...Cookie

Moxie Fab Challenge...

Theres a challenge over at Moxie Fab and I LOVE the happy springtime colors! The image in the middle really stood out to me with the pink and peach/yellow! I used my top note and made two different cut outs of paper cut them in half, tied some pretty ribbon to cover up where they meet and give it some softness....Then found some letters in my stash to spell out HI...a butterfly with a bit of bling tops it off...If you have a chance get in on the fun! Heres the link...Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger
Have a wonderful day!!
