PNDC#7 - Animal Love

Happy Monday Everyone!  It's time for another challenge at The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog.  This one is super easy.  It's all about Animals.  Create a project featuring an animal.  Here is a picture of the's loaded with goodies.

For my card I used the adorable image "Teddy Girl".  She is colored using promarkers.  I've been asked what colors I use on my projects.  For the bear I used Chestnut, Burnt Orange and Ginger.  For the inner ears and bottom paws I used Antique Pink and Salmon Pink.  For the bow and heart I used Burgundy and Red.  I will try to do a tutorial on how to color using promarkers.  I will keep you posted.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye - 6x6 paper pad - On The Bright Side.  "Love" these papers.  The crystals are from Zva Creative and colored with promarkers.  The flowers are from I Am Roses.  The button is from My Mind's Eye.  The floss is from Jillibean Soup and last the lace ribbon is from Webster's Pages.  TLF!

Now head on over to The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge blog for the rules and while you are there look at what the rest of the team did.

PNDC #6 - Summer Lovin'

Happy Monday Everyone....

It's time for another challenge over at the Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog! The challenge is Summer Lovin'.  I don't know about you but here in Quebec, Canada summer is taking it's sweet time to get here.  We have had lots of rain.  With the rain came lots of flowers though.  I have always associated summer with sun and lots of flowers.  Which inspired me to go a little outside of the box and create something with flowers.  The lucky winner for the challenge will receive this batch of goodies!!!!

For my card I used the image "Hippie Chick Ellie".  Isn't she super cute?!?  I loved coloring her with promarkers.  The papers are from the 6x6 paper pad - My Mind's Eye - Mabel.  The little flowers are from I Am Roses and the super big one is from Prima.  TFL!

Now head on over to The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge and see what the rest of the team did and while you are there take a look at the rules on the sidebar.  Happy crafting!

Welcome to Avery's Sixth Birthday Blog Hop! We're so glad you could join us.

Avery is one of our dolls and she has just happened to have a birthday! In honor of her sixth birthday, the design team put together a hop to share projects made with the brand new "Avery's Birthday Surprise" stamp now available in both digital and rubber!

What a fun stamp! Avery was sure excited to see it. :)

Now onto my project for today...
For my card I used the 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey - Olivia.
The image is colored with Promarkers. The gems are from Zva Creative but I cut out random swirls.  My sewing machine which has been collecting dust added some finishes touches in a zig zag pattern.  The sentiment is from my trusty canon printer.  TFL! And enjoy the hop! :)

And of course we have some super fun blog candy to thank those who come and hop with us!
