Remember roller skating?

I do...well I remember falling on my behind more than I made it around the rink! Ahh the good times. IASC has two new images out today and I have made some cards playing with those awesome images...here they are.

She is colored with bic markers for the most part. I used a star vellum paper over a very light yellow to bring out the stars on the image. I'm not thrilled with the way I did these stars, though. I need to learn the motto-less is more!







The second image is just a fun to play with.


I love how this card turned out. I copied the sketch from another blogger named Jan. I love her cards. You will too if you check out her blog.
I had to research how skates were/are colored...hmm I just aged myself, didn't I? LOL  Anyway I love tan and turquoise together. I hope you enjoy it also.


IASC blog is here and to get these awesome images they are here in the store. There is a sale on some of the discontinued images for a short time. Go check it out!

3 new challenges

I have three challenges for you today, all so different and all so much fun to do.
Lets start with MelJen...the challenge #54 is to use 3 colors (check), 2 different dp (check) and a ribbon (check). I just love this little image. I sparkled him up a bit with some stickles and glossy accent on his heart.
The next challenge is for Scrap-Creations:Going Grey. They have a sketch to follow. Pretty neat sketch, I'm sure I will be using it a lot.
And lastly Dude Time Doodles has another freebie (Jethro Jug) and challenge. What a hoot is this image. If you haven't grabbed it yet, ya better before it's gone. I did a google search for "hillbilly" sayings. Fun! hmm I might be a hillbilly! :)

In case you don't speak "hillbilly" ...
"yont-tu= You want to
"shindig"= party
"spell"= for awhile

Oh my...yep I'm a hillbilly!




Hope you enjoy all the cards. Go check out the challenges while they are still going.

Dude Time April Sketch challenge

There's a new challenge at Dude Times...for a few more hours. It's their April sketch challenge.
I choose Rough Night Rodney for my image, also a BDD image.

For their challenges you can use any image you want as long as it's for the Dude in your life or another dude...my card will go to OWH.

But really we all can relate to this one in one way or another! I know I can...coffee first then conversation.




Here's the sketch they had to use;

April Showers

Fantabulous Cricut has a new challenge-April Showers, use an umbrella or a hat in your project. Well I only have nine Cricut cartridges and out of all of them only one had an umbrella. Several had peeps with hats...but I wanted an umbrella!  So I used the Cricut lite Jolly Holiday cartridge.  Some cute images on there. The cloud on my card is from Microsoft word, inserting a shape. The puddle is free hand drawn. I was going to pop the cloud but forgot cause I got xyron "happy"..oops. I'm not super happy with the rain drops but I guess I leave them.
Sorry about the poor photo.
