get well

It's time for another Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!
You can visit them HERE.
This week it's a sketch challenge:
I went very literal with my creation.
The black reminds me of in this case, the bugs are caught behind bars!
Here's hoping you don't get caught by any matter how cute they are!
Thanks for stopping by.

We've had lots and lots of rain this week,
so the code word SPLASH just fits right in!
Come join us at Addicted to CAS and link up the card that the word SPLASH
inspires you to make.
Here's what I came up with:
I used a silhouette stamp called Rain Dance made by Technique Junkies.
All I had to do was add a splash...ah, easier said than done!
I couldn't find a stamp of a splash that looked right, so I searched for clip art splash.
There must have been a million of I pretty much found a couple of splashes I liked and
came up with my own version that I drew on with my markers.
Only goes to show that you don't know what you can do until you try it!
The  word Rejoice just seemed to  express her joy and the funny thing is it's from a Christmas stamp set by Simon Says Stamp called merry everything.
The inside sentiment was printed  on the computer

Wednesday Challenge

Use your favorite technique is the challenge
My favorite technique is die cutting,
especially stacking up four layers deep
like I did in the word hello.
I used a little shading with a copic marker ( y-19)
and this card came together rather quickly.
 The daisies are  MFT Die-namics- Upsey Dasies
and the hello is a die by Simon Says Stamp.
Thanks for stopping by.

Over at Less is More it's a one layer card week
and the theme is HOME....
so immediately the saying "home is where your heart is"
came to mind and wouldn't you know it ...I actually found that I had
a little house stamp that had a heart in it! Love it when that happens!
The stamp came from Darcie's and I used washi tape to mask off the
horizontal and vertical white stripes . I used Mustard seed and
pickled Raspberry Distress Inks to do the sponging.
I  printed the sentiment on my computer in Word and then printed it out on
regular typing paper. Then with the help of a light box, I positioned  my
card front over top so that the words fell in the white stripe under the house and
then taped it in place with removable tape and ran the whole thing through the
printer worked!
Thanks for stopping in today.

Oh Snap!

It's a hot one out there today!
 I was ever so thankful to come home to air conditioning!
Here's my card that I'm entering in
the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.
The stamps are by Hampton Arts for the I-press...whatever that was.
I say was because these were on clearance for a dollar at Michael's.
I even found a 6x6 paper pad by American Crafts called Day Dreamer that
had this really cool grey and white camera paper. I couldn't resist using at least
 a little strip of it on the inside.
Funny... I've got a small fortune in copic markers and I make a card
using just the grey ones...go figure!
Have a great day!
