Luck of the Irish

I am not Irish, but like most folk, I enjoy the traditions that go along with St. Patrick's Day!

This is week two of the "Lucky You" release of images at A Day for Daisies!

Here is my card using "Lucky Boy" from A Day for Daisies:
What a fun little guy to color!  If he isn't one of the "wee folk" I bet he is just as mischievous!
The bottom of the card was cut with the rectangle die: A2 Locking Loops

Are you familiar with the A Day for Daisies Club?  Check out the details HERE. It is a fabulous way to get A Day for Daisies images!

Poppies in Winter

Have you been over to the Rubbernecker site lately??
There are some WONDERFUL new images!  LOTS of florals which help me escape the "polar vortex" outside my window.
One that really caught my eye was Poppies (727-04)!

This first card also uses the "Peanut Butter" sentiment and "Horizontal Chevrons" background:

This card uses the verse "Trust in Him":
This one also uses two backgrounds: Grid and Horizontal Chevrons.

I made my own glitter mist using a spray bottle, Tim Holtz Distress Ink reinkers: Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass, and Perfect pearls.  I used the spray after stamping with the grid on the paper; and I used the spray on the Horizontal Chevrons stamp prior to stamping.

The poppy image on both cards are colored with Copic markers.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

May Your Wishes Come True

Today I got to play with on of the multi-step watercolor stamps from Rubbernecker!

This card uses: Watercolor Wish.
For me, it works best to stamp the stems, first, then the large blossom stamp, and finally the small (inner) blossom stamp.
For this card, I applied the Stickles (glitter glue) by putting a small dab on the flower centers stamp and stamping on the flowers.  It worked very well.

It is so easy to get these beautiful blossoms!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, today!!

I Dig You

Hambo Stamps has the cutest little critter in the Digi Shop!  Miner Mole!

Normally, moles are not my favorite animal.  They have gone condo in our front yard and I have heard they have approved plans for a mall and a new freeway.  Construction begins as soon as the ground thaws (IF it ever thaws).

But this guy? THIS guy, I like:

He just DUG his way right into my heart!
AND I happen to know he has chocolate under his helmet!!

Inspiration for the layout of this card came from Retro Sketches #100:
Thanks, Arielle, for the WONDERFUL sketch!
Thank you, too, for stopping by my blog, today!

Card Details:Image: Mole Miner, a digi stamp from Hambo Stamps;
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers;
Paper: white cardstock from Georgia Pacific, red cardstock from Bazzill, and designer paper from Pebbles, Inc.;
Accessories: buttons, Spellbinder die, heart punch, snap stamps, twine, foam tape;
