Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast

You can find the thread to this challenge here. I had a hard time with this card. I couldn't decide how to decorate the background. The challenge specifically said that you weren't to put any other panels of cardstock on the card besides the circle. It wasn't until I change the orientation of the card to vertical, that I liked what I was doing. I was excited to use my new Christmas presents, specifically my Cuttlebug (THANK YOU MOMMA!) and my circle cutter. (I was so good by the way. I had my gifts early and I waited until Christmas to open them and play)

Once again, I used my watercolor crayons to color my flowers. Honestly, I wanted to use my inks, but I needed to be downstairs with my boys and the thought of hauling all of my inks with me was not an option.- therefore, my crayons made the team. This is a set, Time Well Spent, that was given to Demonstrators from SU!. It is a hostess set, so if you want it I'll tell you how to get it.

Please Choose

Stamps: Time Well Spent, small sayings?
Paper: Kraft, Naturals White
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Basic Brown, Pixie Pink
Accessories: So Saffron and Green Galore brads, pink grosgrain ribbon, Coluzzle circle cutter, Cuttlebug with tag die cut, Watercolor Wonder Crayons-pixie pink, green galore, summer sun, pretty in pink

2008 Calendar

So this is a calendar I made for a friend of mine. I used an 8x8 calendar I found out here at our local craft store. It had 14 months and so that is why there are 2 pages for Jan and Feb. With how I uploaded the pictures to blogger they were out of order and that is how they will have to stay for now. But you get the idea without them being in order, right? I like the 8x8, a nice size for pictures. I had some of the cutest pictures to choose from!! I especially like the first January page picture. Such a sweet and good lookin' family don't you think? If you have any questions about what stamp sets or colors I used please leave a post and I'll answer you. Thanks for looking.
