Summer Trainers - All Dressed Up Release

Hi and welcome to the new release at All Dressed Up digi stamps and another month with four beautiful new images. Below is a pic of all the new images which are available for purchased in the store now:
Aren't they fabulous!
I was given the Summer Trainers to use and to be honest, I did gulp when I saw the image but I took a deep breath and dug in.  I do wish I had not chose to use the Copic C grays for the shoes because they ended up being very dark.  Still, for being my first pair of shoes, I think they are ok.

While you are there, take a peek at the current challenge where the theme at the is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image.

Be Mine - Tiddlyinks

I made this card especially for our granddaughter who had her heart set on getting a hedgehog.  She enlisted me to try to help convince Mom & Dad they should get her one so part of my contribution was this card.  (To date, the hedgehog is still in the pet store).
I did a search for Hedgehog stamps and this wonderful free digi image from Tiddly Inks popped up so I scooped it and did up a sentiment on the computer.  It was perfect for the occasion but alas, it did not sway the parents.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Three Room Studio Sketch Challenge

Time for a new challenge at Three Room Studio and this week the theme is a sketch.  I think I overdid it on the black on this one and should have opted for a few more lighter colours but what's done is done!  Sometimes it's so clear when you see it on your computer screen and usually just before you post it!
 I used the new Yay set and this set is one of my favourites with the large sentiments because it is so versatile.

Honeybear Stuffy - Stampingbella

Hi and I hope you are enjoying the summer.  Sometimes it seems difficult to get up the motivation to make a card and I don't know why.  In these strange times where it seems I rarely go out, it's hard to get up enough steam to go downstairs and craft.  The next day it's like my shoes are on fire, I can't get down there fast enough.
I was going through my basket of Stampingbella images (yes, it's a basket and not that small either), I found this sweet little bear image that I've always liked so today was the day to put some markers to it.  It's a great stamp and quite large, perfect for the 5.75" cards I like to make.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!

That Bites - Avery Elle

Hi there and I hope all is well.  It's good here, summer has finally showed up and everything is green and growing.   My card today uses the cute and fun That Bites from Avery Elle.  I've had this set and matching dies for ages and since it was one of the grandson's birthday, this was a perfect opportunity to use it because fishing is his passion.  He turned 12 and a good day is one where he can spend the day at the lake and fish.  
Thanks for stopping by and stay safe!

Wedding Balloon - All Dressed Up Challenge

We have another challenge at All Dressed Up stamps for June and my card uses the Wedding Balloon  digital image.  I never seem to have wedding/shower cards on hand so this seemed like a good time to get busy at one but who knows if there will be any weddings to attend this summer.  Things are slowly opening up here but there are still plenty of restrictions and of course caution is important.

The theme for the challenge is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image. If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team.

I used coloured pencils for the ribbon and lettering.  It's dangerous for me to attempt colouring something as small and fine as the lettering and since it's the last items coloured, I opted for the safety of pencils.

Believe in Fairies Colour Challenge - Three Room Studio

Hi and welcome.  Today's card is for another challenge over at Three Room Studio on Instagram. I did mess up a bit and my colours aren't true to the photo of colours because I was in a time crunch and I had this one on hand.  I used the Believe in Fairies set and the sentiments are from the Yay set.

It's a Ponderful Life - Three Room Studio

Hi there and welcome to another challenge at Three Room Studio and this week's theme is Anything Goes.
I chose to use the frogs from the It's a Ponderful Life and kept the card fairly simple.  To make the water, I sponged some Tumbled Glass distress ink onto the paper and then followed with a spritz of water and blotted with a paper towel.
