Sketch Girl 15 Sponsored by Phindy!


Good morning, hope all is well with you.  It’s time for another awesome sketch brought to you by Sketch Girl.  This time around our sponsor is Phindy’s Place.  She is an amazing artist.  She has been a children’s book illustrator and has branched out to digi stamps.  Her illustrations are adorable, and if you haven’t seen them yet make sure you head over there, you won’t be sorry!  The winner of this challenge will receive a $10 GC to her store, so what are you waiting for, get busy!!!



Here’s the sketch, and don’t forget that you can flip it, rotate it, just make sure we can see the original sketch in there.  I used the absolutely adorable image called Easter Joy.  I painted him with shimmerz and colored everything else with Copics. CS is by Bazzill Bling, DP is DCWV, and I added little bits of ribbon accented with jewels.  I used a scalloped square nestie behind the image.  I used blue ink around the image just to highlight it.  I punched out the flower and used fun flock with a jewel in the middle.  Make sure you play along with us and also check out the rest of the DT, to see their wonderful creation.

An Adorable Little Duck For Ya!


Good afternoon, hope all is well with you today.  I had an opportunity to play with a new image, and take in a few challenges.  This adorable little duck is from Lexi’s Doodles.  She is Lillie with Tulips.  The picture isn’t the greatest, and I apologize!  The weather here is horrible today, very dark and gloomy!  I colored her with prisma pencils and baby oil.  I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly.  This card also qualifies for Digital Tuesday  and their challenge is SPRING.  And also for Everybody Art Challenge and their challenge is Easter.  Thanks for stopping by and have wonderful day!

Mother Daughter Challenge by Karen’s Doodles!


Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  Karen’s Doodles now has a kids’ challenge blog.  When my daughter Sabrina heard about it, she was so excited.  This challenge blog is a little different, it’s for mothers and daughters to work together.  I totally love this, we had so much fun.  So that is Sabrina’s card.  This challenge was a recipe, 2 patterned papers, 3 brads or buttons, and something black.  Sabrina used 3 star brads to match one of her papers and a black flower in the corner.


Here is my card.  I kinda forgot about the something black until the end, so I used a sheer black flower.  The little angel is colored in shimmerz.   Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

An SSD Envelope Card!



Good morning, hope all is well with you.  It’s Sassy Thursday at SSD, and we were given the challenge to make a card with a pocket and flowers.  I decided I wanted to try something new, and found this on the Pixie Cottage challenge blog.  I loved it and decided that this is what I would do.  It wasn’t really hard.  It’s just hard for me when I try something new, so it took me all day, but I think it was worth it.  You can find all the instructions on the Pixie Cottage blog Here. Make sure you visit Sassy Studio Designs to see what the other DT members came up with.  Have a great day!

A Couple More Sassy Cards!


Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I have a couple more Sassy Studio Designs cards to share with you today.  My LSS holds a monthly challenge, where they give you the supplies, and you have to do a layout or project, or as I chose to do a set of cards.  The hinge card I posted last night goes along with this set.  I have one more, but I’ll wait and post that tomorrow.  My daughter Sabrina does this with me, and I’ll post her layout later also.  So, this one is done with Lucy Leprechaun and uses the sketch from Simon Says


And this little cutie is from the Little Honey line from SSD.  This is the younger version of Alice.  Isn’t she adorable!!!  I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious for this, because I had to use these BIG flowers, so I wanted everything else to be simple.  I love using flowers, but have never used any this big, and I kinda like them.  I just have to adjust everything else.  Well, I hope you like them, thanks for stopping by.  I gotta put some finishing touches on things before we go to the LSS.  Have a great evening!!

Here is another Lani inspired White Rabbit-LOVE her too!!  I used the sketch from Our Creative Corner(last weeks sketch).  And the sentiment is from SSD again. They are from the Specialty Alice Sentiments.


This absolutely adorable image is Chelsea and her Chicks.  I totally fell in love with this one(do we see a pattern here), one reason besides her being totally adorable is that my oldest daughter is named Chelsea!!!  I used a sketch from Friday Sketchers.  I just love the springy feel to this one!


And this little cutie patootie is the Lani inspired Mad Hatter(LOVE her too).  I made a mini composition book for Chelsea!  She just now started carrying a purse, so I thought something like this would be very cute for her, and she LOVES it!!!  Ok, so now that you’ve seen all of my creations let’s get down to business.

Like I said the hop is running for 2 days, we are chatting on the SSD party blog-see SSD blog for link to party blog.  There are 4 mystery blogs this time around, so make sure you leave a comment on all of them, because you never know!!  Also Lindsay will be hosting a special challenge today with a VERY special prize.  You will need to visit Sassy Studio Designs to see what the challenge is.  Ok, thinks that covers it, here’s a list of the DT members so you can continue on the hop.  See you later, for chatting, and lots of fun!!
