Ladybug Marci

HAPPY WEEKEND MY PEEPS!!  Well if you're around I am sharing a new card with you today!  I haven't played with red/white/kraft colors in AGES and it was kinda fun I have to say!!  And how do you like that honeycomb chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company?!!!  It's so easy to cut however you want it to fit.  LUV THAT!!! 

This cute little image is called Ladybug Marci from La La Land.  First time playing with these images and I think this was my 7th attempt.   ha ha ha!  I still managed to mess up a few things but I'm not going to tell you in hopes that you won't even notice.  LMBO!

OH AND just so you know, there is a giveaway going on today at the Kit and Clowder Facebook page.  You could win a $10 gift certificate to the store and this giveaway is in conjunction with La La Land putting on the same win themselves.  That's not all but visit the page to find out!! 

OH and one more pretty flourish piece from SRTC too.  This is one my favorites which I've used a few times.  Gorgeous huh?

Well when this posts I will probably be tapped out.  We are camping this weekend and I don't know if there is cell service.  OMG RIGHT?!!  It'll probably do me good.  BUT - let's not kid ourselves here.  I AM taking my Copics!!!  LOL!!

Southern Ridge Chipboard Company

Hello all!  I'm back with another cutie card topped off with some wonderful chipboard pieces!!   I've used all kinds of goodies from all over the place on this one!!

The heart border die is from Joy Crafts along with the single hearts that I cut and added over top.  The long stem flowers and grass are from Magnolia and there are Wild Orchid Craft flowers and Kort and Godt flowers scattered throughout.  My gorgeous laces and little present charm is from Live and Love Crafts, my favorite one stop shop store!  Oh I must also mention I bought my papers there as well.  Maja Design's "Vintage Spring Basics" and if you look you can actually see my paper this time!  LOL!

Southern Ridge carries some gorgeous butterflies but this is one of my favorites!!  I painted it up with a Tim Holtz dauber and then added some shabby chic white Frantage around the edges.  The number of this one is INS-082 and you'll find it in the Insects, Animals, Nature and Garden category.

I love this banner because it's etched to look like wood - ON CHIPBOARD!  So instead of coloring it, I just added my own paper sentiment then painted some Gesso around the edges.  This one is BAN-284 and found in the Tags, Banners and Signs category.

AND of course I colored this little sweetie "Daphne" from Wee Stamps, using Copics!

Kit and Clowder Celebration!

This weekend we are celebrating Kit and Clowder's 1500 members on the website and now over 1500 members on Facebook.  As a token of appreciation Alyce is doing a number of things over a 24hour period, which started yesterday.  If you join us on the FB group you'll catch everything.  Part of the giveaway is a free digi image from Krista's Saturated Canary line so I got to place with this image called "Ellie Awesome Sauce".  LOL!  I think that name is correct but it's "Ellie" for sure anyway.  I haven't had a chance to make a card like this for awhile. Just bright and colorful and nothing about vintage.  hee hee  That's for later today.  ha ha ha!

Always hard to do a closeup of flowers and anything black but I gave it a go anyway.  It's been so long since I've played with my Magnolia viewfinder dies and same with the Tim Holtz filmstrip.  I'm sure we all have some of that left over.  LOL!  My domino came from my stash so was happy to use that up! 

I used my Copics, of course and have listed the colors below.  I'm still working on my hair classes and some days almost feel like I've forgotten how to color hair!  Crazy!!  LOL!  I just had to add some Stickles underneath her feet and to all my flowers as well.

Anyway, I hope you get a chance to pop over to Alyce's FB group for giveaways and sales.  OH AND she is also having a sale on her classes!  If you haven't picked up anything for your mother, this just might be the thing!!  And if you are a mother, spoil yourself!  LOL!!  I can't tell you enough how in depth the classes are and Alyce gives feedback to EVERYONE!

Also, this month's challenge is MAY FLOWERS!  So easy to submit your project or card to the Kit and Clowder challenge.

This month's giveaway:

WOO HOO!  I just love these images so thought it was time to share!  It's also my way to thank those of you who leave comments but that I don't always get a chance to get back to.
  This month I am giving away a gc for Krista's online store for $20.  If you end up using a discount that she sometimes gives away, you could really stock up!!  If you have never seen these images (are you living under a rock? LOL!) you can view them on her store but check out the Saturated Canary blog too.  The DT is incredibly talented!  You could even join the FB group and share your creations as well!


That was a trick!  There are none!  hee hee  You don't even have to have a blog to sign up.

I would love it if you shared or posted my image on your sidebar but it's not required.  Nor is being a follower but if you like my work I would love to have you!


That's why I wanted to do the online gift certificate because then it's open worldwide and not just in Canada!

Good luck!!

Chi Chi Images

This month at Kit and Clowder we are using images from Chi Chi Memories and they are sponsoring a prize of a free digi and a 15% off coupon for their site.  There is quite a cute selection to choose from too!!

The theme is "MAY FLOWERS"!  It doesn't have to be a colored flower on your image, just any kind of flower on your whole card.  HOW IS THAT FOR EASY?!! 

I used paper from Maja Designs, butterfly from Memory Box, corner die from Noor Design, some rose ribbon from Live and Love Crafts and my square doily.

Here you can see my Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and spiral stamens mixed in with some more leaf dies and ribbon/lace from LLC.  The round die is from LDRS called "Lovely View". 

This cute image is called "FOR YOU" and I've colored her with Copics these colors:

  Hair - E11, 13, 15, 18
Skin - E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20
Shirt - BV20, 23, 25, 29
Grass - YG61, 63, 67

 SO!!  Thank you sooooo much for stopping by today!!  Hope to see you enter the challenge AND I'LL BE LOOKING!  (Cuz I get to comment on all entries. - hee hee!)
