Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Here is another challenge that I completed tonight from "Sweet sketch Wednesday" the stamp set I used is "Love 2 Hug" from "The {stamps} of life. I am a member of her monthly club and it is so worth it. I get a new stamp set sent to me on the 1st. of every month and the shipping within the US is only $1.00. Sweet deal for some sweet stamps. This set is a 39 piece set and is perfect for Valentines Day. Which is my favorite Holiday. I totally love all the pinks and reds. So pretty!
Anyways, My colors scheme was tempting turquoise,a dark purple and the DP is from the $ spot at Target called "Tweet Hearts Collection" Totally cute papers and some of them even have glitter and oh how I love glitter! I also used some Ric Rac from Doodlebug design, Inc. called boutique trims in the swimming pool assortment.
Well, I am off to hopefully complete another challenge. So, I will see you all real soon!

Mojo Monday #118


Happy day after Christmas everyone. I hope Santa was good to you all and you had a wonderful day with family and friends. I had a pretty busy Christmas as we had to drive all over the bay area to visit our families. It was so nice to see everyone!
So, onto a challenge. This one is from last Monday(Dec. 21st.) so there will be another one from Mojo Monday in 2 days so I thought I had better get this weeks up quick. As you can see, I turned mine but kept the sketch the same. This one I did rather quickly as it was pretty easy for me once I got my image all colored in. Isn't she just adorable? She is from Sugar Nellie. from the website Funky Kits,The home of adorable stamps I just love any and all of those images. Totally cute! I colored her in with my copics and used a pink Spica for the flower in her hair. The DP I used is from "My minds eye" and my color scheme is Rose Red, Close to cocoa and white. The sentiment is from Stampin Up! Circles of friendship. Well, I am off to do another challenge which I will share with you tomorrow!

3 Challenges in 1

Hello friends, Wow, It seems like I have been away forever. With all the shopping and wrapping and trying to make sure I get my Christmas cards sent out I haven't left much time for challenges. Well, They are all sent and I have completed 3 challenges in one. I am so excited about this one. First, We have Mojo Monday, You can see the sketch above and this one was quiet easy for me. I finally got to use my New Dahlia Nestie that I won in Wendy's awesome October Breast Cancer awareness Blog Candy. (Thank you again Wendy!!) Anyways, The next Challenge was the Splitcoaststampers color challenge # 249 which was Melon Mambo, Mellow Moss and So Saffron. And the 3rd. and final challenge was from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog and it too was somewhat of a color challenge. We were to use nontraditional colors for a Christmas card. Although I did use Green(Mellow Moss) but that isn't too much of a Christmas color, Is it? Hmmmm, Maybe it is. Lemme know what you think. I feel like I had a pretty productive stamping night and now I am pooped. Only 3 more days until winter Break and I am off of work for 2 weeks,(can I hear a Woo Hoo?) I am ready for the break. From work that is (wink wink)!
See you all real soon!!
