Penny's Challenge #574 Anything Goes

 Sometimes you create a project/card that you just don't want to use or give away.  This project is one of those.  So happy with the way it turned out.  Come along and see.  First though the sponsors.






Two very generous sponsors.  Love to work with each of them.  Please go show some love and leave a thank you also!

My project is from Odynetika are is named Lily Lady Sakura. Here is my creation.

The card base is a pretty pink.  I found the Japanese arch under
coloring pages on bing.  The green DSP has gold dots.  I used
light pink card and a die of cherry blossoms I bought some
where.  For Lady Sakura, I colored the hair, skin and the
umbrella with my Castle Arts colored pencils.  I did a fabric 
piecing.  Cut out the fabric piece after printing and adhered
heat and bond to the wrong side.  Then on a very low iron 
(no steam) I applied it to Miss Sakura.  Happy spring is printed
on vellum.
 

I have used green dsp, another Japanese Arch and another Cherry
Blossom bunch.  The little saying is common for a spring time
card like this.


The back.


Here is the envelope.  Forgot to show this first.

This card is going to a very special person.  I hope she likes it.  So that's it from my neck of the woods.  I'll be back in a fortnight to give you inspiration to come join the fun!

So from my heart to yours,

Stay healthy, Stay safe and know you are blessed.

Penny's Challenge #573. Anything Goes

 Hey everyone!  Short and sweet today.  Here are the sponsors.






What a joy it is to work with these sponsors.  Please go show some love and give them a thank you as well!

My project is from Paper Nest Dolls and it titled Birthday Owen.   Here is the final result.


I colored Owen with my Prismacolor Pencils and my Arteza
Pencils.  Did a print and cut.  The background papers are part
of the package that you get when ordering most items from
Paper Nest Dolls.  I will be using this paper a lot.  The cardstock
is embossed paper I got at Tuesday Morning.

The back.

I am sorry this is so short.  It's good weather in Oregon and I am outside completing projects I just didn't get done last fall.  So from my heart to yours,

Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and know that you are blessed.

Penny's Challenge #572 Anything Goes

 Hello everyone!  I hope that you all had a fabulous Mothers Day!  Since my birthday is only a couple days from Mothers Day I always have the two combined.  My girls got me a beautiful redwood planter/trellis.  Then they planted it with honeysuckle, clematis and petunias.  It's quite beautiful.  So on to the challenge.  Here are the sponsors.






I am so lucky to be able to use images from these two sponsors over the years.  Love it when I don't have to do anything to an image for print and cut or just to color.  Please go show some love and please thank them for being a sponsor.

My image for this challenge is from Last Minute Manda is is from her Sloth Coloring Book.  Here is my card.


I needed a masculine card.  What better use of the Graphic 45
paper collection called Safari.  I have used my Prismacolor
Pencils and my Castle Art Oil pencils to color the cute sloth.
The card base is an olive green bazzil.  Stripped paper G45.  Solids
are bits and pieces of my scraps.  I have had the gold colored brads
for eons.  

The inside has the same papers plus some tribal plastic disks.

That's it!  Short and sweet for this challenge.  Can you believe that our next challenge is in June?  Time flies so fast anymore.  So until the next challenge, from my heart to yours,

Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and know you are blessed!
