For Fun Challenges

With Easter hopping along soon, I joined a Bunny swap over at Rubber Stamp Chat.

The bunny that I chose is too funny! He’s part of the DoodleFactory sets at Starving Artistamps. I flocked him and used my new grass border punch for the fun stuff at his feet. You can’t help but smile when you see him right?

Sweet Fiona having fun with her clovers all around!

She’s perfect for a Good Luck, St. Patrick’s Day or March Birthday Card!

I’ve colored her with glitter for a sparkly touch adding a little magic to the card. The green colors are for this week’s blog challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio. Check it out and enter for a chance at some free digi stamps! Click on the picture for a bigger version to see the detail.

I just LOVE Whimsie Doodles digital stamps! They are super cute and I love coloring them.

I watched some Copic coloring videos on YouTube recently and tried some of the new to me techniques on this little guy. Not too bad! I still need some practice time, but the results are better than before I think!

This is for this week’s Whimsie Doodle ‘Get Well’ challenge. Hope you like him!

I have a lot of fun every Monday doing the Ippity Stamp blog hop! Come by and take a look at my sister blog, Ippity Stamps 4 You.

It’s amazing how versatile the images are and how they really match well across the sets or with Unity stamps.

Here’s what I’ve been up to these past weeks with Ippity!

I’ve long been a fan of Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. The style is flowing and somewhat whimsical with a vintage flair. Such detail and beauty in each image!

This image, Bird with Floral Trail, is wonderful for card making. It’s a great size for the front of a card. I’ve heat embossed it here with P K Glitz embossing powder for a little extra dimension.

Otherwise known as a “RAK”.

Have you ever received one? I have and it’s a great ray of sunshine when you open the mailbox to open a totally unexpected card from some random person!

There are lists that you can get on to give and receive these RAKs, in fact, we have one on the FL Stampers Yahoo group. It’s fun and makes you feel good to send one along to someone when they least expect it.

Here is one such RAK that I’m sending to the Mom of a teenager on one of the Yahoo groups that I’m on. Her Mom is actually on the list, but recently came to need some urgent care. So, the daughter has put out a request for a ‘card shower’. Isn’t that a cute thing to do?

See, there is still hope and good will out there!
