I coloured the image with Copics and then I went to town with my Flower Soft! On this image I used Polar White for the tail; in the grass I used Spring
and in the wheelbarrow, Fuschia. The sentiment is an old stamp I had around here, not sure of the Company. Flowers by Prima and Button and Pearls misc.
You should see what the FS DT have been up to! Jen, Jeanne, Linda,

Hey! I've reached over 250 followers............do you know what that means? Yep! I'll add some more goodies for your sweet tooth! Stay tuned for some pictures of the next lot of loot!
This week The Stamps of Life Design Team Challenge is to use a Bow on your Project! This was not a huge stretch for me, as almost everything I do has a ribbon and a bow!
The first card was made strictly with Brushes from the Eggs4Easter Set. Talk about a quick and easy card!!! All I did was add a bow and glitter!
This little card was also made with Brushes from the Eggs4Easter Set. I just added some extra dimension with a punched border, some colouring and a little ribbon of course!
If you'd like to play along, you can load your creations here into the Stamps of Life Gallery. Just use the keyword TSOLDT07
Now hop on over to Jeanne and Deb's Blogs to see what they've come up with this week!

I coloured my main image in copics and used some Flower Soft to fluff up the sheep! The lawn is coloured in sold green (YG11) I added strokes of green for grass, in addition to some Glaze Pen dot's to create a little bit of flowery goodness to the lawn. The Flowers are also coloured with some glaze pen to give them sheen. The little flower and Brad are accessories that Amy is now carrying at Paper Romance.
Well, better run, off to work I go

I used Cappuccino Pippen! I love the chubby little cheeks on this furry ball of sweetness and had to add wee bit of Cappuccino foam (liquid applique) to it's nose!!!! I coloured Pippen with Copics....don't know where the heck this DP hailed from, but I sure do think it fit my theme this week! Other than that, not much more to say 'bout the card! But be sure to follow the links on my sidebar to check out the "crazies" creations! You WON"T be disappointed~

I coloured the house image with Copics and added Flower Soft Fuschia Mix to the window boxes and along the base of the house and the top of the lawn to create flower beds. I stamped the sentiment in black leaving some on the main image and then I Adirondack Stream Acrylic Paint to define the border! Make sure you check out the Lounge this week to see some more sweet samples!

I coloured the two with Copic Markers. I would list the markers that I use in a project, but I have a tendency to have about 15-20 markers piled on my table by the time that I am done! Using the new Basic Grey Origins line, I hand cut my Egg, sponging the edges with brown and used a scalloped Border Pundh (EK Success) to create a "grassy" base for the egg to sit on. Base Cardstock is Saffron Yellow and the Blue is a shade of Periwinkle. The sentiment "Happy Everything" is also available over at Stampotique!

If you are a follower of all things Tilda, you may find my card a little barren in terms of Embellishments! I tend to have a fairly clean style with my main concern and focus being the image. I am pretty disappointed as to how the orange ink on her dress photographed. In real life the lines are softer and the contrast gradual. I didn't seem to be able to capture this on film, nor with editing. But anyway, as I look at her on my desk, she's REALLY pretty! I love this new Bo Bunny Spring Paper, which was the inspiration for her dress.
Then I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Brown ink and Tied a big old yummy May Arts wide Polka Dotted Ribbon around the middle of the card! Make sure you head on over to the Totally Stampalicious Blog to get all the details for this Challenge!

So I created my card with Christmas Stamps from The Cat's Pajamas!!! I love their stamps. My Design was very simple. I cut an oval out of a nestabilitie and created an oval pattern on the white cardstock by softly sponging in Saffron Ink. Then all I did was stamp on the Bird and the sentiment and them added some gold dots to enhance the frame. Oh yes, if you look closely, you can see bells stamped in Brilliance Gold Ink. I added the paper Pointsettia (sp?) with a gold brad........easy peasy!
