This is my design card for Sketch Challenge #38. I used a cute little digi from Mo's Digital Pencil for this Valentine. I used both copic markers as well as watercolors for the painting of this cute little girl. Papers were by Bo Bunny and Bazzill. I am also entering this card in the Pixie cottage challenge. This week the challenge was to create something in pink or red.

Free Wink Wink Wink Digi Kitty


While I was out blogging this afternoon, I came across this cute free digi from Wink Wink Wink Digi's. I just couldn't resist and had to make her into a card. I used copics and watercolors for her coloring. I used spellbinders to frame her and a sponging technique for some of the shading.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me comments about my work! It is really appreciated!

Hello everyone, look what we have here! This is called a "YOUR CHOICE" Sketch challenge. We've noticed in some of your blog post when we visit, that you mention that the sketch was difficult for you, or some of you like a Clean and Simple Design. Well, we have listened to you and are presenting here for you today a chance to do our sketch challenge and you make a choice of the one you prefer. Either the CAS style or a more "Detailed" sketch for those of you who are accustomed to our ornate style. Why not enter one of each this week. We want everyone to play and have fun with our sketches-so we are offering you this as a trial.

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

Sweet Scrap Deal

Thank you Charlene for your sponsorship this week. Here is her write up.....
"After getting laid off last summer I decided to follow a passion of mine, scrapbooking. I love to scrapbook and shop for scrapbook products! My desire was to be a business owner and bring the best deals out there to scrapbookers and card makers. I began this online store with a vision of "one deal a day" but it has grown into so much more! You'll find that everything is on sale all of the time! There is also a clearance section with items that are priced so low, you can't afford not to scrap!I love being able to supply all of you with sweet deals on quality scrapbooking goodies. One thing that sets me apart from other online stores too, is that I offer scrapbook classes. I hold meet-ups in the local Roseville/Rocklin, CA area where we get together and work on 12 x 12 layouts, mini albums/books, original scrap/stamp projects and cards. I will soon be posting these layouts and projects for sale in my store as well. The kits will be adorable and easy to put together! My favorite brands to sell are Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts, Hero Arts, Fancy Pants, Sasafrass, Prima Marketing, Hampton Art, Unity Stamp Co, and well, there are too many to list! For more information on my store and all the classes I offer, please visit my website at or my blog . I look forward to serving you and your scrapbook needs!"

Valentine Card


This is a Valentine that I made using Faith's free digi's. Just under the wire. I actually have several projects in the works! So many stamps and digi's and so little time! I am looking forward to someday not working full time, so that I have more time for making my cards and projects. I just received in the mail today, wonderful templates for making treat boxes. Just in time for Valentine's day! So now I will have to find the time to actually use them!
