Weekend Wrap-Up and OWH Sunday Sketch

First, let’s start with Operation Write Home’s Sunday Sketch #173
Here’s what it looks like:

Here is my take:

I colored up Some Odd Girl’s Mr. Pepper and Mrs. Salt.
I colored this sweet pair up using the following Copic colors:
Mr. Pepper:W1,3,5,7
Mrs. Salt: C1,3,5,7, R20
Aren’t they adorable?!
The paper is from My Mind’s Eye and the sentiment bubble is from Recollections.

I just wanted something easy to color up especially after I spent hours creating my next submission for Round 3 of Odd Idol. I mean hours! Phew!!!
That’s right! The Top 20 contestants have been narrowed down to 15! My card made Top 15! It is a blind vote and thanks to those who may have voted for me. Side note: I couldn’t even talk my kids into voting for me! 🙂
This was my card that I submitted for Round 2:

The theme was friendship.
So, my Round 3 submission is made and ready to be submitted. The challenge/theme is to color a SOG image the opposite of what you think it would normally be colored. I am realistic in thinking that I will not win the competition but I am ecstatic that I made it to the Top 15! It was fun playing along regardless. Plus, I spent all day yesterday making a nice BIG mess in my crafty corner. Now, I must go clean it all up.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends.




Tiddly Inks Challenge #110 is to use a Wryn!
That’s great…because I adore Wryn! She is one of my most colored and beloved digi stamps character. Just when I think I may own them all,a new Wryn is released. Ha! I must have her. It’s a Wryn addiction!
For this challenge, I colored up Close to My Heart Wryn.
Here is my card:

I colored Wryn using Copic markers.
Hair-Y00,21, YR23, E33
Other-RV02,04, C1,3

It really is a simple card that will be used as part of my Operation Write Home’s write a Hero Letter for everyday in May. Surprisingly, I have been up to date so far!
The rubber stamp sentiment on the front reads:LOVE

And the inside is stamped: is all you need

The card is from me&my big ideas Mambi Cards(size A6). They are neat! The Mambi cards are pre-scored and easy to use!
Well, that is all for now. I am off to color icecream Wryn!
Have a great evening, my friends!



Sunday Sketch

Operation Write Home’s Sunday Sketch Challenge 172 looks like this:

Here is my take:

Oh, you knew I had to fussy cut?! Of course! I am obsessed with fussy cutting! And you probably figured that I was going to use a SOG digi stamp?! Well, you know me too well!
I colored up Some Odd Girl’s Squeezey Hugs.
I used Copic markers to color this cute couple.
Skin -E50,51,53
Mae’s Hair-E53,55
Boy’s Hair-E44,47
Other-R35,38, C1,3,5

The circle sentiment comes from a rubber stamp heart that reads hugs inside.

Nothing fancy. Round 2 of Odd Idol voting is still happening here. If you have time, stop over and vote!
Finally, HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY!!!!! You would think that one of my 5 lovely children would have served me breakfast in bed. But….no! No breakfast in bed. I’m not bitter. Really, I’m not. Regardless, of my brood have a great one!


Banner Challenge

Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge #177 is: It’s a Banner Day! I colored up Pippa Popcorn.

I used Copic markers to color her up using the following colors:

Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps are quickly becoming my favorites! The popcorn was so fun to color up and the popcorn bags came from Michael’s.

The banner sentiment reads: You always pop up when I need you.
How cool is that sentiment?
We had one heck of thunderstorm blow through here tonight! Hail and trees knocked down. Flooding streets that forced me turn around and find an alternate route home. Not fun. So, I am a little behind in my cardmaking and posting.
Have a great weekend, my friends!!

Sketch Day

Is it me or does it seem like Sunday comes around so quickly lately? I can never seem to fit everything I have to do in one day. Also, I took the month of May write an Any Hero letter everyday challenge. Whew! So far so good!

Nevertheless, today is Sunday and that means Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #171
Here is the Sketch:

Here is my take:

I colored up Lily Lemon. She comes from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.
I colored up using the following Copic marker colors:
Other-G40,43, Y13,18
The sentiment reads: “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!”

20130505-104726.jpg I must be weird because I do not like lemonade!
The paper is from My Mind’s Eye. The little lemon embellishment is from Recollections.
I like the green and yellow color combo. It makes Lily’s pink dress stand out.
There is my take for Sunday’s sketch.
On another note: Remember my Some Odd Girl Odd Idol challenge:

The one I stressed over?! Well, the competition is getting h-o-t! First round took 68 submissions down to the Top 20…and guess who made it to the Top 20?! Oh yeeeaaahh! This girl! Round 2 starts soon. I already created my friendship theme inspired card. But I can’t share it because it is blind voting. Round 2 will take 20 contestants down to 15. How exciting! If you get a chance pop on over and vote!!!!

Have a great Sunday, my friends!


Mid-Week Throwdown

It’s Wednesday! Whew! And only 24 more days of school left to summer vacay!!

Operation Write Home’s Mid-Week Throwdown is Thank you.
I colored up Tiddly Ink’s Lilli Claire Bouquet. I will self confess that I am totally addicted to digital stamps and rubber stamps! I need a 12 step program to break me of my habit!
Here is my thank you card:

I colored Little Lilli with Copic markers using the following colors:
Hair-Y21,YR23, E18
Other-RV93,95, E31,33,37
The sentiment is of course, “Thank you”.

It is so beautiful here tonight. The first of May and the weather is just perfect! I sat in the fresh air coloring to my heart’s content! I messed up Lilli’s hair…oops. But maybe no one will notice! Ya think? And…as mentioned in previous posts, I continue to practice coloring pleats. What do you think? Too dark??
I hope you are all having a great week my friends!
