Hippity Hoppity..

Easter really is on it's way, and I have barely made a dent in my Easter cards for this year...gonna have to get it in gear, huh!! I am still super sick, so I am gonna keep this short! I made this card for the last Paper Pretties release party. It was part of a challenge that Charmaine gave us, to make a card that was inspired by a cartoon character. I chose to use Winnie the Pooh as my inspiration. My Bunny Hop Sophia image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Gina K. White and then colored with my copics. I then layered it with Riding Hood Red and So Saffron. The DP is from the Washington Apple DSP from SU, as are all the embellishments(except my pesky spiral clip). The sentiment was cut out with my Round Tab punch from SU, as well as it's layer. The buttons are part of the Bouquet and Latte buttons, and all have white taffeta tied through them.
Well, that is it for me now...I am off to stamp..or maybe sleep...we shall see, LOL!

Ready, Set, Go!!!!

Today's Limited Supplies challenge was a super fast one, so I decided to I am beat and I don't want to upload...nice. I am forcing myself to though, and then, I believe I will take the longest nap EVER!! The challenge was to make a card in 30mins. or less, mine only took 19mins. from start to finish...woohoo!! To top that off, it is an SU only card, woot!! Incase you are wondering, I have felt bad for a long time about not using my SU stuff as much as I should. I am FIERCELY loyal to their ribbon, card stock, embellishments, and inks, but I know I neglect their stamps. I am trying to do an SUO card at least two or three days a week...often times it has been more, but that is my goal. Unfortunately, I slip a lot of the time and add something that isn't SU, or use my Nesties. I just wish SU would get it over with and carry them, oh what a happy girl I would be!! Anywho, I started with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I used my new favorite DSP(ya, I know I say that a lot, and tomorrow I will have a new one, but for today, FAVORITE), Parisian Breeze. I paired it with my Friends 24/7 set. The bird was stamped in Chocolate Chip, as was the sentiment, and then I used an aquapainter and my Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze ink pads to highlight it. The ribbons are from the Valet Ribbon originals, and the brads are from SU as well. I did a slight amount of sponging and it was done.
Well, that is it for me now, for real. Back to the couch!! Have a great day!!
