Today I had a wonderful day. My class and I had fun learning a new song for the Fine Arts Week happening in April. We are doing the song, "I Will Survive!" The children loved it and I must say, it was a lot of fun! The weather outside was glorious this morning and then by 2pm, it changed. It was blustery, cloudy, gray and miserable...but somehow it was still gorgeous. I wanted to capture the sky and the silouhette of the trees with this card. The "trees" are embossed with black embossing powder and a heat gun. The sky is brayered with Going Grey ink on glossy photo paper. Then I used a shiny black satin ribbon for the sentiment to go onto.
Ribbon: Satin ribbon from Walmart, Pink Heart Brads (got them on sale after Valentine's Day)

I actually was at a local crafting store last week and saw a Happy Birthday stamp that I immediately loved but of course, didn't buy it!! It was an Amuse Stamp. Just little and kinda pricey. So I withheld. Now I wish I had bought it. Of course! LOL!
Once again, I used the sketch challenge from PCP. It is so simple and I love the layout. Now I need to make some baby cards. I am going to try to use the layout on Cindy Haffner's blog. I have an idea for it!! Hope it turns out like I hope it will!
Bought some great ribbon today. A local SU! rep was selling some of her old stock and so I picked up a DSP pack of paper (the mini 6x6 pad), some ribbon and an old stamp set. I am going to use that stamp set for the baby card!! Oh! The ribbon will also be put to use!!!
Have a fun day! Can't wait to see all the wonderful creations out there!

Sketch Challenge on Paper Craft Planet.
Here's the sketch:
The best part of this colour challenge was being able to stamp on Kraft, rather than on white!! This was a bit scary for me!! LOL! But I took the plunge and went for it. I actually do not own the SU! Kraft, so I used a knock off variety I bought at a little store. I hope that it ok!! I hope you also notice that I added some more bling!!! These Making Memories "Sabrina" gemstones are great!! Hard to tell, but I put some "fairy dust" on her wings!!! In real life, she glitters and gleams.
Supplies:Stamps: Pink Cat Studio
Ink: SU! Markers-Real Red, Summer Sun, Basic Black

Here is one card I created with the wonderful Pink Cat stamps. I think all their sets are adorable and the best part is that they are made locally! In Vancouver!
This layout was from the Splitcoast Stampers website. It was a challenge for me. I started with flower images and then found the scraps of DSP and that brought me to this little owl and the christmas card.
Thanks for looking!
