Soft Pencil Tuesday

Welcome to Soft Pencil Tuesday! I received my stickers in the mail last week from Elizabeth, SP owner, and I could not wait to use them. These are high quality stickers, with gorgeous vibrant colors! Take a look at what I created with a couple of them:
The stickers come in sheets with a variety of images on them, you have got to go visit the soft Pencil blog and store to see them all. Click here to go see them. There will be a link at the top that says "shop", click on that. There are some new images being introduced soon, and myself and the other DT will be doing some sneak peeks to get you excited about them. Watch for those! I tried out a new feature of my Picasa photo software and this card photo called "Vinette", what do you think? Should I use it again? That's all for today! If you are looking for Stamp-n-doodle, please scroll down. I had that one scheduled to post this morning at 7am, but that didn't happen, so sorry, Blogger is having some issues with scheduled posts. Anyhoo, I fixed it, so scroll down and see that one too. Until next time..........Blessings, Lisa

Soft Pencil Tuesday? or Wednesday?

Yay, welcome back, and guess what? I think I found my crafting mojo! Lets see how long it stays with me. LOL. I am such a dummy head this week because Soft Pencil Studios is have their 3rd Blog hop and all of us DT ladies are to participate, well, I assumed that because we are hopping on Friday that we were not posting on Tuesday! Wrong! Please accept my apologies. So, I am trying to redeem my self with the following creation:

This is "Charmy", isn't she cute? I knew I had some adorable papers by Heidi Swapp, (not sure if I spelled her name correctly) that would be perfect with this image. There are little fairies, flowers, ladybugs, etc on them. Love it! Charmy is colored with a combination of Lavender Smooch paint, prismacolor markers and a copic marker. The sketch is based loosely on last week's Splitcoaststampers sketch SC380. I moved one of the circles though.

Now, please don't forget about Friday's blog hop, start out at the Soft Pencil Blog and go hopping from there! You will find wonderful inspiration, have fun and maybe even win a prize!!!!!

Until next time...........Blessings, Lisa

Stamp-n-doodle Tuesday!

Welcome to Stamp-n-doodle Tuesday! This week's challenge is to use bold Bright Colors, such as Red, Hot Pink, Orange, Blue, etc... I think you get the point. I had a difficult time with this challenge because I am more of a pastel or rich colors kind of girl, I hardly have any bright colors laying around my craft space, so I hope you like what I have created for your inspiration this week. I used the image called "Boy Watching". Love the cute little Chihuahua sitting next to her on the bench.

So, what do you think? Did I use bright enough colors? Can you tell I am very insecure about my creation this week? LOL Well anyhoo, please go visit the other DT ladies blogs and leave them all some much deserved love and then go to the SND blog and join in on this week's challenge you just might win some free digis. Remember that you don't have to use a Stamp-n-doodle image, but if you do, you get an extra entry.

Stay tuned for Soft Pencil Studios, that post will be up shortly.

Hugs, Lisa

Soft Pencil Tuesday!

Yay! Another Soft Pencil Studios Tuesday! Soon, Elizabeth will have her new stamps, papers, and more for sale! Yay! While we are waiting, she has already loaded her new Digi images in her store. So, here is a sample this week using the image called "Easter Chick". Love it! So cute!

Of course I had to use my favorite color combination...purple, yellow, green. I found an old stash of eyelets and brads that I have had for years and I couldn't resist using them. Of course would it be complete without some of the newest obsession here is the US....Twine? Nope, had to use that too! Twine is pretty cheep too, you get a lot of it for your money. I figured out that Doodlebug Design's price is approx. 12 cents per yard. Not bad, huh? It comes in so many awesome colors too. ok, now you know I am obsessed with it. Moving on.....lol.

Please go visit the other DT lady's blogs, I have links on my blog sidebar for you. Leave the ladies some much deserved love and then go visit the Soft Pencil Blog and get your own digi images, they are all way too cute for words!

Stamp-n-doodle Easter Blog Hop!

Welcome to an Easter Blog Hop from Stamp-n-doodle, you should be arriving here from Vickie's blog. If you haven't visited Vickie yet, click on the link that I provided and go visit her for the clue and inspiration that she left for all of you.

I used an image called "Easter Duck", so cute with the little human face inside that costume. I have to admit, I have been wanting to use that gorgeous flowery background paper on my card for so long, and after I colored my image, I realized it would be perfect for this card. A friend of mine gave it to me a couple of years ago, love it! The ribbon on the left is from the Michael's dollar bin, the button is from Doodlebug, the little Egg eyelets have been in my stash for years and the twine is also from Doodlebug design.

My Bunny Hop clue is EGG.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog, keep hopping, you should be visiting Anne-Marie next. Have fun hopping and have a great Easter Weekend!

Come back later this morning for Soft Pencil Tuesday!

Until next time.............Blessings, Lisa
