SugarPea Designs and The Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for two challenges!  One of the challenges is the SugarPea Designs sketch challenge and the other is the Linky Party over at The Challenge.


 
I used the adorable Hot Diggity Dog stamp set from the SugarPea Designs March release.  I love this stamp set, it has so many sweet images and sentiments!  I colored the image with copics and then finished it with some colored pencils. 
 
 
 
 
In addition to the SPDSS23 challenge, we're having a Linky Party over at The Challenge, where we're celebrating a One Year Anniversary!  There are some fun changes being announced at The Challenge this week and we're being sponsored by SugarPea Designs, so be sure to stop by for all the details!
 
 
You can find the links to the DT's fabulous projects over on the SugarPea Designs Blog!
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Anita

TGF Farm Fresh Friday - Easter Time


 
Are you ready for a fun new challenge?  Today we have a new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge on the TGF Blog and the theme is "Easter Time".  So it's the perfect time to pull out your TGF stamps and finish up those Easter cards!  

 
I used  Easter Bean - digi to make an Easter card for my granddaughter.  She's only 15 months old but I think she'll think it tastes pretty good ... you know everything goes in the mouth at that age, right lol?  I think this image is so adorable - I love all the little TGF Bean images!  I colored the image with copics and used some cute papers from Echo Park.  I used the Fence Die and also the Tulip Border Die to create the row of flowers.     
  
Be sure to stop by the TGF Blog to see what the rest of the team is sharing today for our latest FFF.  I hope you find some time to get inky and play along in our challenge.  The random winner receives a $25 Gift Certificate to the TGF Store!!!   

There are only a few simple rules to play along in the challenge:

- You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image

- Entries must be uploaded to the TGF Blog no later than April 2, at noon CST

Easter Basket Ian

Hi all!  I thought I'd pop on and share a card I made for the TGF Blog today.


This little cutie is Easter Basket Ian, a digital stamp from TGF.  I colored Ian with copics and kept the card fairy simple.  I added some enamel dots and some grass under the basket.  I'm giving this card to my grandson for Easter.  He loves receiving my handmade cards and keeps all of them together in what he calls a "special box" ;-)  If you need an image for a girl, you can check out the adorable Easter Basket Anya.  

Please stop by tomorrow because I have another TGF card to share for the new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day!

Hugs, Anita

Good morning everyone!  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend so far.  Today is Feature Day over on the Your Next Stamp Blog, which means that the team is sharing some new samples featuring the YNS stamps and dies. 



I used the Sprinkles - Happy Easter clear stamp set and the coordinating Sprinkles - Happy Easter Die Set to make my card.  I love this little bunny stamp set - it's sooo cute!!!  I also used the Circles Die Set and the Stitching Marks Die Set - Circles for the circle behind the bunny.  I used the Whatknot Seasons Die to cut the banner for the sentiment.  Be sure to check out the other stamps in this set in the photo below.  I know I've used this set a lot recently so I hope you're not tired of seeing adorable bunny cards ;-)

Time For Tea Designs - Sweet Flower Fairy

( ** Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp, Greeting Farm, and Anyas, Oddies and Others! posts ** )
 
 
Wow, this is certainly a busy day on the old blog today!  I promise this is my last post for today ;-)  I wanted to share a card using one of the latest digis from the Time For Tea Designs shop. 
 

 
This little cutie is called Sweet Flower Fairy.  She can be used for so many occasions ... wouldn't she be fabulous on a Mother's Day card?  I colored her with copics and then added Glamour Dust to make her wings sparkle.

Anyas, Oddies, and Others! March Linky Party

( ** Please scroll down for my Greeting Farm and Your Next Stamp posts ** )
 
 
 

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful week.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Anyas, Oddies, and Others! Linky Party.





I used the adorable HG Classy from The Greeting Farm.  Isn't she just a little cutie - love this image!  I colored her with copics and didn't use a sentiment so she can be used for any occasion.  My only embellishments are a small bow and a few enamel dots. 



This sweet image is called Cute Flower Fairy from Time For Tea Designs.  She's colored with copics and then I added Glamour Dust to her wings for sparkle.  The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp and I added a few pearls by the sentiment. 

The challenge this month is anything goes so I hope you find some time to link up to the Anyas, Oddies, and Others! Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

TGF Farm Fresh Friday - Spring Colors

( ** Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp post ** )




Are you ready for a fun new challenge?  Today we have a new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge on the TGF Blog and the theme is "spring colors".  So, go pull out your TGF stamps and get inky!!!


 
I used Anya Celebrates for my spring colors card.  It's been been awhile since she's seen any ink and I think this is such a pretty stamp so I thought I'd make a quick and easy birthday card with her.  We always need birthday cards, right?  I colored her with copics and then used just a scrap strip of dp with some pretty colors.  This little piece of dp is from Doodlebug Design and I love the colors in it.   
  
Be sure to stop by the TGF Blog to see what the rest of the team is sharing today for our latest FFF.  I hope you find some time to get inky and play along in our challenge.  The random winner receives a $25 Gift Certificate to the TGF Store!!!
