cQc #260 ~ Hello There!

Well hello there!! Here we are at another Tuesday and that means a new color palette at the ColourQ! 

I wanted to recreate the plaid from the shirt, but my navy blue ink was no good! So I went with the orange an yellow using my DeNami Design three line border.  This cute little lion is from Stamps by Judith and of course the pretty trio of sequins are Pretty Pink Posh.

Okay I'm off but I'll be back in just a bit for a new release blog hop at the Precious Remembrance Shop! See you then ~Lisa


Precious Remembrance Shop ~ Design it Monday!

Enjoy your day ~Lisa


CCC #133 ~ It's the Simple Things!

As autumn knocks on our door the days have given way to chilly mornings where the warm sunshine gradually brings the day to a pleasant temperature. The skies are the most beautiful shade of blue and the evenings turn cool shortly after dinner. This is my kind of weather and just perfect for long walks with my sweet little Max. I took a moment after one of those very walks to make a quick card for the latest CASology challenge where the cue word is grass.

I immediately thought of this long grass stamp I have from Impression Obsession. My inspiration was drawn from one of my husbands beautiful photos. Is my guy talented or what!!! My little bird faces in the opposite direction, but I think you get the idea! The sentiment (also by IO) is something he always says to me when I have a silly goof up of some sort!!

Thanks for stopping by, I'm so happy you did! ~Lisa


cQc #259 ~ Sending a Hug!

Well hello there and a happy Tuesday! It's that time of week again, a new challenge is up at the ColourQ. Time to get inky and play along!

I have to admit that this card took me MUCH longer than I would have liked! I couldn't get the right balance with the colors. I had light pink centers for my sunflowers (PTI) to begin with and everything just looked dull. Once I added the deep purple everything else started o make sense! The icing on the cake was the addition of my Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins (4mm & 6mm). They truly brought this card to life!

Hop on over to the CQC blog and check out what the team has to share. I sure do love working with this talented group of ladies! Have a great day ~Lisa


RS #132 & CC ~ I'm Here for You!

Hi there! So much happening these past few days. One of my hubby's sisters had back surgery and another of his sisters will have back surgery in a couple of days! My brother had to have his family dog of 15 years put down. Poor little thing. They new she had a couple of teeth that were bothering her and needed tending to. But once they got to the vet last week, it was discovered she had cancer of the tongue as well. The vet told them they really had no choice, a dog can not live without their tongue. I think the card I'm sharing today would be suitable for any of the three of them.  

I designed this one following the newest sketch from Retro Sketches and will enter it at the Catered Crop as well, they're having a good medicine challenge. I just adore this little lady by Stamping Bella and haven't used her in quite some time. I'm so happy with the way my coloring turned out today! Sometimes getting the skin just right is difficult and the details in her snazzy little boots could make a girl go cross eyed!

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Ours wasn't a total downer. Hubby went to a nearby airport for a small air show and got some nifty photos despite the drizzle on Saturday. And yesterday our son and daughter-in-law bought the mommy to be a new car! Baby girl Elton will have a new chariot to ride around in!!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~Lisa


Just For Fun!

Hello sweet bloggy friends! I hope your week is gong well. Mine seems sort of frantic! I have a long to do list and I'm  running around doing all sorts of errands. But when I get home and start marking things off my list, it doesn't get any shorter or look like I'm getting anything accomplished. Craziness I tell ya!!

To give myself a calm moment or two I sat down to make a card. Did you ever want a stamp set really bad, it's forever out of stock and then when you finally get it you have a mental block? That's what happened to me with this darling Mama Elephant set. I finally managed to pull this little number together. But I really want to play around with these sweet images some more, love them!

I have lots of Pretty Pink Posh goodness on this card too! I layered up three of the zig zag Borders I Dies onto the tag from the Stitched Duo I Dies. I stamped and colored my images then added a bow made from yellow Chevrons Twill Ribbon ~ love that stuff! Finally some Mossy Green (4mm & 6mm) sequins as accents! I must admit I've been hoarding this October Afternoon paper for a long time. There's just a small piece left, but I do love the way it looks here! And you see my card base? It's Bazzill: Watermelon cardstock. I picked up a big package at Tuesday Morning for $2.99, great deal huh and I love the color!

Well I guess that does it for me. This is a just for fun card, couldn't find a challenge for it to fit into, but that's okay. I was a great way to relax! ~Lisa

**Well blow me down!!! Thank you my sweet friend Darnell my frantic head didn't register that my new stamp set and new paper actually qualified for her NBUS challenge!! Off I go to link this up!**
