Look at this fun gal, sewing seeds of friendship! The sentiment is a stamp from the SU set "The Fine Line". The flower is a Jesse James embellie from HL, which is where the jewels are from too. I colored the image with Bic markers. The ribbon is from Archiver's.
I used the new phone image from MSB to make a cell phone charger box. The DSP is from SU. I colored the images with Bic markers. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the back of the box for the phone cords.
Only one more day before the big event over at MSB! I can't wait. There are some crazy cute images being released! There's never been a better time to "go digital"! You can satisfy your sweet stamp tooth with all the amazing stuff going on at Modern Sugar Blvd!! :)

I colored the cutie image with my PrismaColor pencils and then pop-dotted him. The blue line along the middle is blue floss that I threaded along the curve. The orange dotted paper is from DCWV. The "W" is chipboard.

I was able to get a lot accomplished while my DS was napping yesterday. This challenge, my swap on SCS and a card for Post Pals. It doesn't happen very often, but sometimes I am actually pretty productive. :)

In honor of the event, I decided to share a card I made using a super cute MSB digi stamp. I made this card for a friend of mine who just recently moved into a new house. To be honest I never would have thought to make her a card until I saw this image. Here it is:I had to rework this card because my first attempt just looked a little "hectic", if that makes sense. Here is the original: It's hard to tell from this picture, but I had originally stamped the background with the SU set "Sprinkles". It just didn't look right to me. So, in true scrappractical fashion I peeled the image off and slapped it onto the back of the cardstock and started over!:)
I've been trying to get used to embellishing my projects more. It's not easy for me because I am a CAS kinda girl. I think it has to do with the fact that I don't like to spend days working on one card. This one is a good blend. It's embellished but it didn't take me long at all.
Now if I can just remember to mail it out! :)

Stamps: Wonderland (The Greeting Farm)
Cardtock: Black (HL), Purple (SU)
Accessories: Crystal (HL), White Gel Pen (Archiver's)
I just got this stamp set from TGF and I thought it would be great for the DTC. Since Ian is the mad hatter, a top hat card seemed perfect. I made the card shape using clip art that I traced onto cardstock. I had to tweak it quite a bit to get it to work for this project. I drew the white lines to highlight the card a little bit more. I colored the images with Bic markers. I drew/cut the flowers freehand and then distressed them.
Another challenge down and no end in sight! :)
