This is the card I made using the image Ice cream girl... she is so cute letting her cat taste her ice cream.. I used some birds for the background as it's an outdoors looking card.

It's Challenge #83 at Inspiration Destination.. Where it's always Anything Goes


Sponsor for this card is All Dressed Up

 I am using this darling image called A time to share.. I think they are so cute and I wanted to use some fun colors. I colored them first then went looking for a designer paper to use. (( usually find papers first then color).. boy was I lucky.. I found this right away. I always seem to go to my basic grey first and there it was.. Truthfully I could of found it and many more within the color range in my large stash of papers. I am not a hoarder but oh my I have so many paper pads in so many sizes.. Enough about me.. This card is so cute and I am loving coloring the blackish hair.. I always go with the browns and tried the blonds but I am not liking my choice of copics.. so I need to find a good blend of copics to get the blond.
I hope you play at ID where it's always ATG

With Mother's day just around the corner I figured it would be a great time to make a card. My mother has been gone 8 years and I miss her so much.. I think she would love this card.. She'd love any card I made. I remember after she passed and I was going through her things she had a box of cards and letters I wrote to her dating way back, even before I got into making cards. Warms my heart. Any how this is the card I made using Robyns Fetish image Spring girl. I cut her out because I wanted to use this Designer paper (?)  with the XO's on it.. I added some pearl swirls. Bright fun card.
I hope you play along at Inspiration Destination.. it's always ATG.

Wishing you happiness - Inspiration Destination # 82

Wednesday April 20, 2016

Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #82 - where it's ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES


Our sponsor for this card is The East Wind


This is the card I made using the image called Flower Goddess.. I wanted to give the card an Asian feel and I used an Asian coin that I got from Monika Reeck in Germany.. She is at Creative with Monika  I have been waiting for the right card to use it and this is the card.. I added some cool yarns I have to the coin. This is the first time I have colored a black/gray looking hair and I do love the look. I really am not one for low cleavage so I made it look like she has a sheer top under her awesome dress.  I added some white gel dots to the center of the flowers on her dress so they looked like flowers vs. globs.. I hope you find time to play along at Inspiration Destination.. It's ATG always.
