I got my stamps from Elzybells today and just had to play with them. I colored them with my Prismacolor Pencils. I made two of the ducky cards, but will have to remake one of them because Dylan ate half of it. I think my boy is part puppy. The sentiment inside the princess card is "Celebrate your inner princess." I love that!

Here is my card for Bill's Sketch Challenge. I used Imeldabella from Stamping Bella and DP by CTMH called More to Adore. I got the ribbon at AC Moore and the three strands on the side are Hollyhock Sassy Strands by CTMH. Have fun playing with the sketch and I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I was asked to design two cards to try-out for a ribbon company's design team, so these are what I came up with. These are cards three and four, as cards one and two didn't quite measure up. The first card uses Key Lime and Buttercup CS and white grosgrain ribbon. I used a button as the center of the flower and then used Waxy Flax to string beads from the holes of the button. The ribbon along the bottom says Spring. The second card is woven with hot pink and green gingham ribbon and white satin ribbon. The image in the center is Kinibella by Stamping Bella. The CS is Ocean by CTMH. I did a lot of research to see how to use ribbon on a card and it seemed like everybody used the same techniques, so I decided to step out of the box and make the ribbon more of a focus. It was kind of fun to let my imagination run wild. I will post the two rejected cards later. Even though they did not make the cut to send in, they really are cute cards.

I know several people who are pregnant right now so I thought I would play with this image. The stamp is Teddybella by Stamping Bella and the paper is Sweet Harmony by CTMH. I made another card with this paper today too, but will have to wait for the glitter to dry before I can post a picture so check back tomorrow.

This has been a busy day online for me. I joined a new Yahoo group for Magnolia stamps and started my own Yahoo group for Sugar Nellie stamps. I am looking forward to playing with both of them when the arrive from the UK and the Netherlands. I am discovering so many different stamping companies lately and it is fun to see something new. I am such a stampaddict!
