I decided today I was gonna make some Easter Cards!! I dug out some old stamps I got MANY YEARS ago from D.O.T.S. ( now known as CTMH), inked them up with StazOn and watercolored them. My favorite colors are purple and yellow....can ya tell? LOL These were super EASY layouts and were both made in about an hour...it takes time for Watercoloring to dry.
I will be back in a bit with yet ANOTHER Purple Creation. I am gonna make a card for the Guest Designer Challenge call at Clear Dollar Stamps!! I ADORE CDS, and I would love NOTHING MORE than to be one of their guest designers.... See you soon~

I have been entertaining teenagers all day....( 4 girls, to be exact) so I haven't accomplished too much. But I did manage to get this little basket put together. I saw this little cutie patootie on Claire's Blog. She has some of the cutest little baskets and boxes that are her OWN patterns, and she so generously shares her templates!! Go check her out!!
This was a super simple little project...using the template, I just printed onto the backside of the PP and cut it out. She even gives great tips on how to make them work smoother!! I did the blue liner using the same template, just turned it inside out...my PP was only one sided, so I had to do a liner....darn! Mine isn't anywhere near as cute as hers, but I am happy for my first attempt!
Well, as soon as the girls disperse ( goodness only knows when that will be...they have been here since dinner lastnight) I will get to work on a couple of Easter Cards I have had bright ideas for...LOL! We have a NASTY storm a'brewin', so if it gets bad, I will not be back til tomorrow!! Stay safe, and have a wonderful evening!!

This is the sketch for this week...I like things that are off-set, so this one appealed. I finished it up lastnight, and here is the card For MM#79.
It is storming here this morning....so I am off the puter! I would DIE if my puter died...LOL!! Have a great day, and I will see you all later!

I have SO been playing!! This is a card I made just because...
SHOCK! I got this gorgeous stamp set from The Angel Company, and I mean it is GORGEOUS!! I stamped it with Versamark and embossed with Black EP. I have been trying to work on my use of watercolors and watercolor crayons...this was done with the crayons and a AquaBrush. I am totally thrilled with the outcome...
I got this sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping, a blog I have been stalking lately. There are so many neat ideas there for FAST cards. This took all of about 20 minutes this morning, and that included the painting and cutting!! It is a 4.25" X 4.25" base that is Cuttlebugged. I rarely do cards in other sizes, but I like this one square. I used my Coluzzle, which I hear is being retired...OMG I have to get some blades for my knife!!...to make the circles, and scalloped the Black one. The sentiment is from the SU set, Embrace Life. It is stamped and embossed with Versamark and Black EP. Just put it together, and voila~ I have a few other ideas from the C&S blog I am gonna try today...hope to be back later!!

Doesn't he have the sweetest little behind? Well, I thought so...LOL! This is a little guy from TAC's I Love Easter. I stamped him in StazOn and colored him with watercolor pencils and a blending pen. The rest is PP by The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby. This is the Splitcoaststampers
SCS219 which I actually got to do!! The little flower brads are actually a lavendar punch with a flat-top eyelet. I like how it just finished the card off!
I really don't have alot more tonight...I am tired and gonna relax in front of the TV for a bit. ( Dunno how I can be tired, I had a nap after dinner...LOL!) Have a great evening, and I will see you all tomorrow!!

I did this in 3 pieces...the topper, which is cut on the fold, and the pot ( cut 2) and adhered to the topper. I wanted to use this pretty paper I got at Hobby Lobby by The Paper Studio, so I hunted through my stamps for something that I thought co-ordinated and found this from the retired SU set, You Are My Sunshine. Colored the flowers and pots in the colors of the PP and put it all together. The sentiment is from TAC's Tag Tid Bits.
