Sunday Sketch and Stamp

hello!!!  The SSS site was having technical difficulties, so the challenge is a bit late this week.  What a fun sketch!!!  I made a card for my brand new niece, Sophia.  The carriage is from an old SU set, buggies and booties, which is one of my all time favorites.  I then masked the carriage and stamped Life Defined from Whimsy Stamps over it.  The ribbon is the seam binding from SU which I crinkled with shimmer spritz.  The papers are from MME's girl pack.  I also added some distressed glitter to the edges and distressed them with scissors.  The flowers are from Wild Orchids.

Sunday Sketch and Stamp with a Whimsy Sneak peek!

Hi All!!  It's time for another fun sketch at Sunday Sketch and stamp!!   I used a new sneak peek image from Whimsy Stamps for my card this fortnight.  This is Brooklyn Babe from Kenny K.  Super sassy huh?  The sentiments are digi's from whimsy as well, created by Ann Vento.  The paper is actually ski slope or something like that from SU.  I stamped the orange layer lightly with classified ads also from Whimsy.  If you don't have classified ads yet, it's on sale for 7.50$ today, an awesome price for such a great background stamp!!!!

Happy Birthday!

Well it's a big month for birthdays around here.  Between family birthdays, kids birthdays and the arrival of twin cousins, I feel like everyday is a birthday!!!
This one os for my daughter's friend.  She was having a dragon themed party and loves birds.  So I used bubble dragon from Dustin Pike.  The papers are fine and dandy from My minds eye.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, birthday letter seals.  I also added lots of glitter to glitz it up a bit.  There are also some rhinestones, buttons and ribbon.

Jump Start on Easter!

Hello!!!  Well it's digi day on Stamp Something!!!!  I got to showcase Phindy's place digis this week and chose to use this little cutie to get a jump start on my Easter cards!  Easter may be a little later than usual this year but it always sneaks up on me!!
I colored her with copics and then added some stickles to her bow.  I added bunches of spring flowers and used Kioshi papers from basic grey.  I also added a little bow.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, the holiday circle postmark set.  Hope you can join us this week, just use a digi and have fun!

Daisy Butterfly

Hi everyone!!!  Hope your week is going great so far!!  I am waiting patiently for it to warm up and start melting the ice skating rink that is my driveway!!!!
I organized my digi stamps the other day and came across this lovely one from Crissy Armstrong.  It is called daisy butterfly and is available at Whimsy Stamps.  I masked the butterfly then stamped life defined, also from Whimsy, on top of it.  The final stamp is also from whimsy from the postage stamp sentiment set designed by Ann Vento.
The papers are from Stampin Up, bella blue.  I also added some wide satin ribbon, flowers and antique brads.
