Retro Sketches # 153

Still playing with the same stamp set - I'm in love with these little guys.  My next card will be the cute bunny.  I got the paper a little too wet using water color pencils but decided that this little pooch just has some terrier in him to account for the texture!  The CTMH stamp set is discontinued but the fabulous UV coated paper is the Close to My Heart Fundamentals and still available. 

I played along over at Retro Sketches #153

Friday Mashup - Tuesday Morning Sketches - Color Q

Goodness the combo of these three challenges was extra fun!  Everything I used I have had for quite some time.  The stamp set is an adorable discontinued set from Close to My Heart.  I have to laugh at the Friday Mashup, farm animals and bling? Who would have known that would actually work well and be so fun??  The DT and card entries are GREAT in all these challenges!!

MOJO 384 & colourQ #278 + CTMH Brushed, Have a Happy Day

I REALLY needed a break from the dusty dirty work I've been doing the past few days, you know the whole attic & garage cleaning yuckiness - bleh.

At first I was completely stumped and uninspired - the challenges I checked out tonight were great I just think it was my toothache affecting me - got a crown this afternoon.  Well....I got started, had some fun and my tooth feels better.  Pretty neat how a little creative time (and Tylenol) can make a difference.

The color burst pattern from the Studio Calico Brighten Pier collection was the perfect start for the colourQ#278 challenge.  It paired quite nice with Close to My Heart Brushed paper kit, Sunset cardstock & Chevron embossing folder along with thick twine + "Have a Happy Day" and "Just Sayin'" stamp sets which are available on my CTMH site.  I followed the MOJO 384 sketch - it's always fun to play over there.  

Oh BTW,  I'm pretty proud of the fact that I pulled a good "quit hoarding" move by using almost an entire sheet of sparkles :) are you still hoarding?  Join me in 2015 & hoard no more - use your stash and make room for new fun goodies!
