August 14, 2014 First day of School

Digi Image from Doodle Pantry, Cloud dies AMuse Studio, Washi Tape

I made this card to send to my sweet little chemo buddy that will be starting her first day of  school today, she had to delay her start a year because of her cancer but she is so excited  to be able to go this year.  I am going to get her some school goodies together to send in a little package along with the card.  The card was easy peasy - my favorite as the digi was precolored and I computer generated the saying and punched out some tiny stars to put under the words.  She is going to be just like a little sponge and soak up so much knowledge - can't wait to see how she likes school.  Challenges:

August 9, 2014 Congrats Happy Banner

Happy Banner Stamp and Die by MFT  die from Die-Namics by MFT- ribbon from my stash colored with copics

You think maybe I love this little Happy Banner girl from MFT - Pure Innocence stamp and die, this is at least the 5th card/project I have used her for.  I paper pieced her dress, hairbow, and socks then colored the rest of her with copic markers.  One of my chemo buddies graduated last week so our protocol is that we send a "congrats" type card a giftie and a note.  I thought this card was very appropriate for the occasion.
I so enjoy all of my chemo buddies from the little ones to the adults as well as the seniors.  I think I will be using this stamp and matching die again probably several times.

August 2, 2014 Skateboarding

Stamp by Stampendous, Spellbinders dies, colored with copics

I have a little chemo buddy that I am filling in for while his regular angel is out for a few weeks and I thought this little guy was perfect for a 5 year old.  He has 3 siblings so this week I made up a package of Koolade and some of those fun twisty straws,  and a couple boxes of skittles.  When the chemo buddies have siblings I often try and include them in my gifties so they don't feel left out.  Plus this fit in a nice padded envie so hopefully will save a bit of $$ on postage.    Challenges:

SU image, copics, basic grey dp, bling CTMH

A couple of months ago my friend Patti  and I got together for a morning of stamping and catching up and she brought me a couple of images to color, well I ran across them this past week and I colored them up - I have no idea what kind of flower this is but I made it red!!!  This may be the card I send to my chemo buddy that is graduating - love the sentiment.  Trying to use up some of my stash of papers vs. buying more - Good Luck with That right???

July 20, 2014 Happy Banner

Designer Papers The Paper Loft, Stamp/die cut MFT, Balloon dies Paper Smooches, twine and pink cs from my stash

I finally cashed in my gift certificate from Simon Says and I got some fun new "stuff" including this darling MFT girl which comes with her own die.  I love to paper piece so I colored her with copics and then paper pieced her outfit and hair bow.  Love how the designer papers from The Paper Loft  go together so nicely and I thought this selection from Truly Scrumptious was perfect for this card.  What fun this card was to make following Saturday Sketch (well almost).  I have two happy occasions to send tomorrow, one is to my chemo buddy who has graduated so I thought this image would be perfect - and then there was a special request for birthday cards for a sweet little girl so I am thinking this one will go to the little girl and I will work up another one for my graduation chemo buddy.  Challenges:

July 15, 2014 Evening in Paris

Design Papers from The paper Loft, stamped college Hero Arts, bling from Michaels, copics, Inktense pencils, distress inks

I am a guest designer this month for The Paper Loft and oh my their papers are just yummy.  I had some leftover scraps of Shades of Gray and I thought that set the scene for this ladies evening in Paris.  Colored her and then cut just the beautiful lady out so I could pop her up on the college, then distressed the rest of the college.  I had this cute Eiffel Tower bling that I had gotten at Michaels the last time I went shopping and I knew it was the perfect bling for this card.  I think I already know who is going to get this card for her birthday.  Challenges:
