Hippo Love

Well...We made it to Friday!  TGIF!  I have had this fun Hippo from Polka Doodles all colored up and just laying around from a long time ago.  I decided to fussy cut her out and make something with her.  This is Helga Hippo - Fairy Princess.  I used a gold Shimmer Pen from CTMH on the wings and star and some Stickles on the center of the flower on her head.  The letters and heart were cut using my Cricket.  I added a flower, bow and some gems.  Just for the heck of it, I added some Glossy Accents to her eyes.

Crazy Birthday

This card was made for this week's Bugaboo OLDIES BUT GOODIE post

Hello!  Almost through another week!  Seems the older I get the faster times flies!  Is it the same for you?  The only time things go slow is when I'm work when I don't want to be!  LOL  Speaking of time, and getting older, I made this fun birthday card using a sentiment from Create With TLC and a Bugaboo image called JJ Calendar May.  I stuck with the red, white and black colors for this card.  Though it was good for the 'lady bug' look.

Beautiful And Unique

This card was made for this fortnight's ATG challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs.  With the two sponsors Jans's Digi Stamps and Cute as a Button


This card was made using an image from Jans Digital Stamps called Pansies For Mom.  I stuck with the purples by adding a purple flower and using purple cardstock.  I used my Cricut to 'fussy cut' the images.

Dream

I went to a little store called Tuesday Morning yesterday and found some super fun die sets.  I used one image from the three sets I purchased (dog, bike girl, Eiffel Tower).  I cut the floral from using the Cricut.  The sentiment itself is from a paper pack.  I actually found a similar layout that inspired me on Pintrest and sort of copied the idea.  I added four bows, some flowers, pearls and Nuvo Crystal Drops, these were supposed to be dots, sadly I bumpped a couple and smudged them, so I just did a strip, doesn't look as good, but, better than tossing the project and starting over.  LOL

Birthday Frogs

Today I decided I wanted to create a scene...it isn't a current challenge anyplace that I'm aware of, but it was recently and made me start to think.  I used 4 images from QKR, I used 3 different frog images (the dragonfly above the girl frog is from Message Bottle 24151), the boy frog is Frog and Dragonfly 2304, the girl frog is Bikini Frog 8204, the fish and all of the bubbles come from Tropical Fish 2303.  I colored the images using chalk and sharpies.  I used a few different Shimmer Pens fro CTMH, the glitter gems are also from CTMH.  The sentiment was cut using my Cricut, the coral was cut using a die.  I used one of the sketches from Sweet Sketch Wednesday that looks like this:

Don't worry Bee Happy

This card was made for the current Anything Goes challenge over at Patties Creations.


This card was made using an image called Honey Bees and Hive.  I stuck with yellows and black with the exception of a small touch of blue.  I cropped a couple of the bees and made them larger to add onto the card.  I drew the dots all around the shapes.
