A Busy Weekend

I spent the weekend cleaning and organizing my studio. Well I still have a lot more to go and a bigger mess than when I started. I did get a few cards finished and I started a layout. A lot of the weekend was spent in and out of the forums at Paper Craft Planet. At Bugaboo Stamps there was an impromptu Challenge and it was our first week together as a Design Team so it was a lot of fun and I had a chance to get to meet other members of the team and see old friends as well as new . I am so excited about these Stamps.
I made a card for the Inspirational Card Sketches this week. This sketch is fantastic. And check out this adorable image by the Digi Stamp Boutique. This is one of the images from the New release this month. There are 5 of these little cuties. Go check them out soon there is a sale going on right now.
This is for the challenge this week over at Digital Tuesday Challenge.We were supposed to make a Valentine for a loved one. I will give this to George this year. After 27 years of marriage we don't do things like give Valentines. WE should change that. I did this adorable card using an image from Shirleys2Girls and papers from the dollar bins at Target and I colored the elephants with Copics and then I put a coat of Rock Candy Crackle Paint on them for that wonderful elephant hide effect. The hearts are filled in with Stickles in different colors.

Close up of the skin. So Cool!

I bought this image from the Stamping Botique Sat. morning and this was the first thing I worked on. I just happened to have the perfect paper sitting on my desk. My Minds Eye. And how cute is that wonderful flower paperclip? The buttons I picked up Sat. Morning while doing my grocery shopping at WallMart. I just had to take this photo of my desk when I was finished with my card. This happens with every project. Then I clean off my desk and start all over again.

This was the Friday Freebie this week at Bugaboo Stamps. We ended up having an impromptu Challenge also and I think it was a great success. You should also check out our group at Paper Craft Planet. It is a great group of gals and we are just getting started but I think you all would like it if your not already a member. I used a lot of shiney stuff on this card. I used Crystal Effects on the tulip and tulip hat. Stickles on the stem and and rabbit and dots on wings. Liquid Pearl on the wings.

I will be back in the morning with my sample for this weeks Challenge by Tamara.
