Monday at Simon Says Stamp....doodle, doodling....

I used a card from Suzy's doodle prints that I colored with my zig markers....

I put a little instant pack of coffee inside for a special treat....

Happy Monday!

Wednesday Challenge..Texture

Whew, I forgot to post last wednesdays card...the theme was texture....

I made this coffee cup card, and I added nuvo drops for some added "texture"

How fun is that!

The cup stamp is from CTMH and the saying is from Stampinup.

The Color Throwdown #488

This week's colors are Green, Yellow and Aqua.


I had just received Hero Arts April kit and it had these fabulous little inks that blend, so I took the teal and yellow and went to town blending a nice yellow, green, aqua background. I grabbed the Flora and Fauna stamp set-under the sea and colored some images, cut them out and popped them on the card, I tore a little piece of paper and colored it to look like sand, I really like how this card turned out. the banner stamp is from the April Hero art kit as well and the little "Time to relax" stamp came from a random set with no name....

Happy Color Throwdown day #488

Mythology/Inspired By A Story Monday Challenge

Simon says stamp challenge is really cool this week...

A card that is inspired by a myth, fable, story.

I love the Aesop's fables, so I went with the "Fox and the grapes" fable.

A very thirsty fox was trying to get to some grapes but he just could not reach them, he finally gave up and said "those grapes were probably sour anyway!
The lesson is : just becuase you don't get what you want does not mean what you wanted was not any good. Don't bad mouth something you can't have.

I used the Fiskars wine stamp set and the fox came from Colorplay stamp set.
I colored the grapes and fox with alcohol markers then I watercolored in the background with blue.

I hope you liked today's card and I hope you learned a nice little lesson about being happy with what you have and not talking bad about what you don't have.
