4 Ways to Color......

This is for the challenge at 365 Cards Day 40 - 4 ways to get colour onto your stamp.  So I started with a digi stamp - chick border - I'm sorry I have no idea who to give credit to for this digi stamp - it is very cute - I printed it onto patterned paper; used copic for the beak and grass, I added glue on glitter for the wings, which I then coloured and used the iRock for a gem in the flowers - the background blue paper is from provo craft, I've had it forever.  I used my fav bazzill card stock for the base and for some detail border punched under the chicks - Happy Spring!

Super Sketchy Sunday Day 41....

Today is the day at 365 Cards that you have to follow the sketch that Pam posts - the sketch is there for you to follow or as in my case I guess just be inspired!  I somewhat followed the sketch...didn't I? hmmm....ok well maybe I was inspired to use the color purple!  ....Here is the sketch from Pam and here is my card -

Funny thing about the sketch - you can turn it which ever way you want - 
Hope you had a terrific weekend - thanks for stopping by!

Getting Back On Track

Well this past week I made a commitment to myself to work on being creative. For many reasons I just could not get to work on anything creative ~ I've hardly taken any pictures or even opened up photo shop; I've only made a card or two because I absolutely needed one and was too lazy to head out to the store to buy one. We relocated from the mild climate of the west coast to the cold, dry snowy climate of the Alberta foothills, not only did we relocate but moved twice in 5 1/2 months. 
For my own sanity, I need to be creative....all work and no play ~ well you know how that goes! 
Wish me luck as I start back - I hope to get back to one of my favorite places 365 cards.   
Thanks for stopping by!
