Kiss My ....... Donkey

The title of this about sums up the entire deal here.  I'm afraid you'd have to insert something other than donkey though!   I'm trying out this new Blogger business and am completely lost.  As far as liking even one little thing about it........oh please!!!!!  I may never figure it all out and if I don't  I guess I'll know what I have to do.  In other words, if I just disappear off the face of Blogger, you'll know why.  I'm way too old to learn new tricks - and yes, Blogger is tossing out a new trick here.  

This little donkey was in a set of stamps that a friend of mine sent me not long ago.  It'd make a cute image for a baby boy's card too I think.  Anyway, all I did was color it and add some patterned paper.  In fact, there are THREE different pieces of patterned paper there.  Using up scraps!

Ribbit - ing Into The Weekend - and Summer

Check out the look on this little guys face.  This is exactly how I felt a couple of days ago when we hit 100 degrees here once again!  It's like he's saying - Say What!!!!  It's not even really summer yet or I didn't think it was.   Or maybe he's got that side way glance since he saw a good looking female frog pass by.    Just check her out. 

The image is from Art Impressions. Having a little trouble getting good pictures for some reason, but I'm working on it.........inside!

Coming Soon.........Summer - Jan's Digi's

Those dog days of summer are approaching so fast now.  It's already started getting hot around here and I know it'll get a lot hotter before it's all over with.  These next three months will be a scorcher for us I'm afraid......But, sure beats shoveling snow (although I wouldn't even know how to shovel snow)!  Anyway.........

I'm back here again because I just wanted to remind you that we still have our Anything Goes challenge over at Jan's Digi Stamps - and would love for you to play along for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Jan.

Jan's images come in black and white and also pre-colored.  I actually colored this one but love her images that are pre-colored too.  This image is a new one in her shop called A Boy and His Dog. 
I colored the image with Copics and then added two different pieces of patterned paper and some twine.  I dabbed a little distress ink on the image background too.  The sentiment comes with this set of stamps.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Artsy Stamper Challenge - its a guy thing.

Birthday Girl - PIP Challenge

Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge is back again starting today.  It's an Anything Goes challenge so be sure and come on over and enter your card or project.  Our wonderful sponsor this time is Polkadoodles, who also provided the images.

I did a very CAS card using this little birthday girl.  When you have two granddaughters here and they pop in at least once a week asking for a birthday card for a friend, you have to make sure you have plenty on hand.  This one will fit the bill nicely!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure an head over to our challenge and enter.

Butterflies from Somewhere

Weird things going on with my computer lately.  I did all the cool stuff you're suppose to do before getting a photo on here and posted the picture above - and it was upside down.  Ok.  Used the one without a watermark and's right side up.  I'm not even going to question any of it.

Next problem is where did these butterflies come from!  The digi image is in my folder for QKR images.  All is fine and good except I can't find it on the QKR store site.  Maybe it's been discontinued or maybe it's from somewhere else......Or maybe it's just the computer being weird again.  No idea.....but it was printed out, colored, and a sentiment from TE added.  I actually made several like this with different sentiments.  The image is just so pretty and it's a very simple card but I love butterflies and love the image. 

I"m going to enter it in the challenge at QKR Stampede.

One Leg-er

Another fun birthday card.  I love flamingos and how they can stand on one leg like that.   All the zoos are closed right now with the 'stay at home' order but I did see a virtual tour of one the other day.  The flamingos looked so happy without everyone glaring at them.

I used a stamp set from Newton's Nook for my card today.  I stenciled a little with some oxide inks in the background, colored the flamingo, and then popped him up.......added the sentiment and it was a done deal.

I'll enter this in the Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook. (Color Challenge)

May Flowers - Jan's Digi Stamps

Time again for another challenge from Jan's Digital Stamps.    It's always an Anything Goes challenge and we'd love to have you come over and enter for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Jan.

I've actually colored my image this time!!  It's so easy to use the pre-colored ones from Jan since they're already colored beautifully but I decided to color this one myself and used pretty much the same colors Jan did on her pre-colored one.  Anyway, it's called Flower Cart is so pretty.  I made a very simple card by cutting the oval in the colored card stock and then mounting the image behind that.  The sentiment is from another set of Jan's digi's.  I tied a bit of twine around it and added some clean gems and called it done.

Thanks for stopping by.........and check out our challenge.


Sending Smiles - PIP Challenge

Once again we have an Anything Goes at Pammie;s Inky Pinkies Challenge - and would love for you to stop by and play along with us.  Our sponsor this time is Gerda Steiner Designs!  Come on over for a chance to win a wonderful prize package!

The image was provided by Gerda Steiner Designs and is so cute.  Love the smile on this little bear.  After coloring it I attempted to use a cloth and the blending solution to give it that furry look.  As you can tell, this didn't work out so well......however, he's still a cutie.  The sentiment I used is from an old Mama Elephant stamp set.

The Mouse - 2 CCC

It's that time again.......time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  It's always an Anything Goes challenge so come on over and enter your card or project for a chance to win a wonderful prize from our sponsor Fabrika Fantasy - who so graciously provided the DT with images to use.

This IS a mouse, right?  Or maybe an overgrown mouse that turned into a rat.......Whatever he is, I love him.  Kinda makes you want to give him a hug......almost!  I used a pre-colored image , added a die for the base background, some patterned paper, a little embossing, and a bit of twine.  The sentiment is an old one from Stampin' Up.  Think this will make a cute birthday card.
