These papers are so pretty and they are from a collection called "Flirty little secret". They are 2 sided and some are shiny! Oh, and some are even sewn!! You can check them out at the ODBD store! And ..did you know that EVERY SUNDAY Kelley puts a different product on sale for the new week!! have a chance to purchase something different ALL WEEK long ON SALE from the ODBD web store!! YAY!! :)

It is called "Grow in Grace" and it is a set of 5 stamps, 4 sentiments and one flower image. I stamped one sentiment and the image for this card.

InStyle stamps...Suzie Q...

I really love these Instyle stamps ..too bad I dont have as much time as I would like to be coloring them all day! In the mean time I whipped this one out and colored it with my copics the other night. The ribbon I found at my lcs and I knew I had to use it with this retro stamp! DP is lime rickey from BG and I dont remember where I got the hairdryer brad..had it a very long time. Oh, and the shopping bags are painted with shimmerz even tho it is hard to see. TFL!

Copic Creations...coloring wood...

Hey...check out the new challenge over at Copic Creations! This time Unity stamps is sponsoring the challenge! I used the perfect image that came to my mind almost immediately when I read the challenge....Ask, Seek, Our Daily Bread designs. I used

Sand E33, Sepia E37, 0 colorless blender , E29 burnt umber and E04 lipstick nat. The light shining under the door was Y26 and Y08. Oh, and I colored the "brick" with C1, C3 and C5.

After attending a Copic certification class I HIGHLY recommend reading Marianne Walker's blog for MUCH information when coloring with copics! Thanks for looking and dont forget to check out what the other dt members did!!

Time to thankful..and brag a little... :)

It is a gorgeous sunny day here in little Hinckley Ohio and we are getting ready for mass and then a grad party this afternoon at my sister's house. My sister had TRIPLETS 18 yrs ago and they are graduating from high school ! It was a long road for her and these kids turned out just wonderful!! Ofcourse in my busy life I was sitting here last night putting a card together for them! I downloaded a pic from my email and pulled out this grad dp scrap to make this card. The pic is a little dark,..but ok I hope. I cut grad sentiment from the paper, used Primas, MS punches and EK success. Brads are BG. BTW...Their names are Patrick, Philip and Annie....... Love em!!!!! College bound to Wittenberg University, close to Dayton, OH.tfl!

Janlynn and ODBD...Welcome little baby!

Here is a card I made with a really cute combo of a border stamp from Janlynn called Garden Flowers and a sentiment from ODBD, Children of God.

DP is Creative Imaginations and I used my copics to color the flowers. The dp actually has a print saying "a blessed event". A different baby card that can be used for a christening or new birth. tfl! Also..if you havent checked out the Janlynn site yet...the big sale goes thru the end of June! :)

ODBD...another look...:)

Here is one more look at the Ask, Seek, Knock set from ODBD. I think this makes such a statement on its own that it doesnt need brite colors or papers...the door is awsome and the verse pulls everything together..tfl! (dp is blue awning) :)

QUIET WATERS...Our Daily Bread designs...

I am crazy about this blue and yellow paper for some reason..Fancy Pants designs. I wanted to do SOMETHING with it so I put together this simple card using one of the new sets from Our Daily Bread. Normally, I dont do simple too well, but I guess I like this because of the colors and the clean look yet not as predictable as most cards. Gees...does that make sense?? tfl! :)

Ask, Seek, Knock...Our Daily Bread designs...

I totally LOVE this door in this new set for June from ODBD. I used my copics to color it and then I whipped out this cool dp from DCWV called LA CREME matstack. It is all black and white..and it. I found the black flowers in em! BTW, I was told that this MEMENTO London Fog ink pad is awesome...VERY TRUE!!! I used it here to ink the edges of the verse.

A Birthday Wish....Sugar Nellie- Leanne Ellis design

OKAY,...I got my first stamp (Leanne Ellis) from Sugar Nellie and I am totally in love....I saw this image on the Sketching Stamper blog and fell in love with her card! Okay,..I fell in love with ALL OF HER CARDS... I cased hers and I am sure mine isnt as gorgeous but here it is. Didnt even mean to ink the little dots around the angel but I dropped a spot and this is what happened! I made this birthday card for a friend of mine and I know she will love this image because she has this same color hair! he he he..The dp is wisteria, BG and I think I just cant get enough of this stuff. Have a great weekend! I am on my way to deliver this card and a gift to the birthday person...(something I brought her back from my trip to New Mex! ) tfl!
