LMMS - Davor

Howdy LMMS friends!!
 
Welcome back for some more great inspiration !
 
At first I was "shying" away from coloring this newest Polka Dot Pals Davor. Not quite sure why - but I am so glad I 'forced' myself to do it. I still have ALOT to learn about coloring with my Copic markers, but I think is one of my best colorings to date! I am SO happy with how it turned out!
 
I borrowed a little inspiration from fellow teamies Vanessa and Kathy.
I have always loved Kathy's coloring talents. And Vanessa's creating of the background in her use of this image is wonderful! Although my grass and sky don't compare! But I think it turned out pretty good!
 
I hope you like it!

Hi there crafty friends!

This weeks challenge is: 
Challenge # 382
Anything Goes
 
Sorry if it seems I was "AWOL" last week, but was having some issues with getting my images, computer problems, etc. Plus the holiday weekend. And then - this week image was a little late getting to me as well. But I have ironed out the wrinkles and I am back with this week post (be it a little late)
 
This weeks image is from All Dressed Up. And with the school year coming to close, this would make a great card for that Number 1 teacher!! I found some 'school' stamps I had laying around and randomly stamped them across the page. To kind of look like a paper you would doodle on in school.
 
Hope you like it!!!
 
 
 
Image: Best Teacher
Paper: ArtC "Paper" stack
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Glossy Accents, Wink of Stella Clear, Hero Arts CL141 (letters & numbers), TPC Studio I Love School (stars, school days), Stampabilities (notebook paper stamp), Memory Box Stitched Rectangle die

LMMS - Tazanna

Welcome back LMMS fans!!
 
We have some more wonderful inspiration to share with you today!
Tazanna is one of the newest Polka Dot Pals to join the lineup. She was added a couple of weeks back and I couldn't wait to 'play' with this image.
 
This kind of brought back memories of when I was younger. I remember a couple of rainbow shirts and baseball caps in my days. She has that "tomboyish" charm about her :) And I really didn't 'label' the front of the card with a sentiment, as to leave it open to whatever occasion I think it might work for!


 
 
Paper: Your Next Stamp Geometrics Paper, Simple Stories SN@P Color Vibe
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Simple Stories You Are Here Enamel dots, Spellbinders Fancy Edged Ovals dies, Distress Ink Old Paper, Spellbinders Die D-Lites Party Banners, Wqink of Stella Yellow

LMMS - Jr Hatter Shower

Hello LMMS followers :)
Glad you could stop by today!
 
I couldn't wait to share this cute card with you today. Can you believe it's the "official" start to summer this weekend- Memorial Day!
 
Hope this card and image put a smile on your face! She is just to adorable with the hearts flowing out of the garden hose. And I tried to go w/some fun spring/summer colors.
 
When I cut out the butterfly punch on the white paper, it just looked a little 'boring' to me. So I got out my Distress Oxides and did a little blending. Then cut out the butterfly border. I LOVE how it turned out!



Here is a close up so you can see the 'sparkle' of the water coming out of the hose. Along with the wet look of the hose with the Glossy Accents applied.

LMMS Inspiration

Hi everyone!!
 
Back to share a quick post with you from
 
 
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I love cats! I have 3 - a girl named Abby, and 2 boys Sniffles and Burdock!
Abby was a Christmas present from my husband and son many years ago. As luck would have it - we couldn't find any kittens at our shelter that Christmas and had to wait until Mother's Day.
Abby is now approx. 16years old and my still my 'baby'.
 
Our boys were both strays we happened upon while living out in the country. Sniffles we found out was sickly a lot when younger, so the guy down the road had named him Sniffles. And it just kind of 'stuck' :)
He is approx. 16 years old as well.
 
And then our not so little lil guy Burdock. He came to us full of burdocks from the fields around our house. We had to literally cut them out of his fur. So we thought that was a fitting name for him! He is approx. 10 years old.
 
SO..........enough about my cats! Here is my card!
 

Image: Feline sitting
Paper: White and cream cardstock
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Memento Ink-Rich Cocoa, Dovecraft-Paw prints, Inky Antics Cute Cats #2-Sentiment, Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers die, Enamel Accents white, Wink of Stella-Clear

I made my own quick background using my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect and the paw prints. And I wanted a quick CAS card for a nice little "Hello" or "Thinking About You" card.
 
Well, I hope you didn't mind me rambling on about my cats :)
 
Please make sure you check out what the rest of the DT has been up to. They have some pretty amazing cards out there!!
