Sunny Day

I think I need a Tiddly Inks 12 step program!

My newest card is a shaker card using Wryn Sunny Day digital stamp. I love sunflowers so this image was quite fun to color.  I colored Wryn with my Spectrum Noir color pencils and the large flower I used my markers. I think it makes the perfect shaker box. Fussy cutting Wryn was a bit challenging but I was happy with the final outcome.

Cupcake Diet!

Now that winter is finally over, it's time to get rid of those extra pounds that somehow seemed to creep on during the long, harsh, cold winter.  So what better way to diet than with cupcakes?

OK, not really, but I did use this cute little cupcake image from Newton's Nook Designs Love a la Carte set to participate in their Inky Paws Challenge #20 - Sketch Challenge  I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it and knew I HAD to play with it.

So here is my bright and happy card, complete with a no calorie cupcake!

Oh ship!

So I was tasked (again) with making a card for a co-worker's birthday. No big deal, right? Except, it's a male co-worker.  So my "cutsie" girl and animal images weren't quite going to work.  So I had to put on my thinking cap!

I dug through my stamps and found this great stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

Even though I didn't technically forget his birthday, I figured the ship was a great masculine image. Using the sketch #267 from Sweet Sunday Sketch as my inspiration this card came together quickly and easily.
