Bigsby on a unicycle

I just love this image! This is Bigsby, from Karen's Doodles. He was a freebie image but isn't available anymore...but keep checking the store, she might have him up for sale one day!!!

I used up some paper I had that I loved, and went with that for the colour scheme. I added yellow sparkly brads from Doodlebug (available at Simon Says Stamp). The card base is Navy, and the red layer is Real Red, both from SU. The image is popped up too. Inside it says "Hope your birthday is as fun as you are!"

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you have a FUN day!!!!

Simon Says......Easter or Spring and some glimmer!

The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is Easter or Spring and some GLIMMER!!! Yes, we mean shiny, shimmery sparkly things!

My first card is a cutie Easter Tilda from last year. I painted the flowers with copics to match the paper, and spritzed them with Glimmer mist (juneberry). Tilda is sitting on a very glittery egg too!!!

For my second project, I chose a cute House Mouse stamp that I got from the Simon Says Stamp Superstore, and made a 2-4-6-8 box (got the instructions AGES ago from Splitcoast Stampers!) Inside the box are some yummy chocolates for my Secret Easter Bunny exchange at work next week.

I spritzed the blue paper with Glacier Glimmer Mist to give it some shimmer...I really wish it had photographed better, it looks so pretty!!!! The eggs have stickles on them to make them sparkly too!!

I hope you will join us this week - the prize is another $25 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp can you NOT enter??? What a GREAT prize!!!! Also, if you enter this challenge and come back here on Friday, you can enter to win my Fabulous Friday Freebie....always GREAT prizes here EVERY week!!!! All you have to do is enter the SSS challenge!!!! How easy!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Easter or Spring

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy Designs is being sponsored by Donna at LIL DIVA STAMPS. You can find her images here: Stitchy Bear Stamps VERY cute images, go check it out!!!!! This image is Sally, isn't she cute? She looks ready for Spring!

I coloured her with Copics and added stickles to her flower and her hat! The sentiment (Inky Antics), charm & ribbon are from my stash! This is a Scrapling card so I used all scraps that I had. The scrapling measures 3 1/2 x 5 - and it is usually the bit you cut off when you make a 5x5 card.

I hope you will head to the Incy Wincy blog and check out how the other Design Team members used Sally!!!!! And, since we all have Spring Fever, now is a GREAT time to make a Spring or Easter card for our challenge!!!!! We'd LOVE to see what you come up with!!!!!
