a rockin’ TIOT!

hi all!!!

my week is flying!  it looks like we might finally get some sunshine today!  i am hoping to go strawberry picking at this wonderful local farm with hubby & pez this weekend.  i have a theory on it – since it has been so rainy people won’t have been picking them during the week so if we get out there saturday morning we will get plenty!  now don’t ask me what i plan to do with them all….

Suzanne gave us a great sketch to work with for Try It Out T-days this week:

In addition i used the following challenges for inspiration:

Practical Scrappers – Patterned Paper
Papertake Weekly – Flowers
ABC Challenge – U=Unused Stash
Crafty Creations – Celebrations
Stamp Something – Celebrate

and here she is:

how fantastic is this patterned paper? it is from the Kioshi paper pad by Basic Grey – susana has it in stock in the 6×6 size. my little matching purple flowers started out as white – susana has lots to choose from – and i gave them a light spritz with some Smooch Frosted Grape instant matching flower. The yellow flower is a die cut made from Viva Decor Modeling Grass. i finished it off with a few little black Diamond Drops.

My image is Little Dianne from the Hearts & Hugs Spring Collection by Victoria Case exclusively at SCACD – doesn’t she look like she’s having fun? this is such a versatile image – it can work well for kids cards or thank you cards or my favorite – the ones you send just to brighten someones day so they least expect it 🙂
i stamped with memento black and colored her in with copics. i added some Spica glitter pen highlights here and there. my sentiment is a studio G stamp. i cut her out with the Labels 11 Nestibilities.
Have you checked to all the fun new things susana has been adding to her store? so much to play with! one of my fave new things – the Maya Road mini chipboard shapes! i can’t wait to get my hands on these! in addition there are some fantastic new 6×6 paper pads!
PLUS have you noticed the change to TIOT? not only have we split the postings up but we want all of you to join in!! so pull out any of the stamps you have that can be purchased at susana’s store – this includes both exclusives AND stamps that she carries from other lines such as kraftin kimmie, i brake for stamps, lockharts, our craft lounge (such a huge selection) – and show us what you’ve got! be sure to link your creation to this post using the same sketch we used for this week.
have fun!

better blog siggy
