A Day for Daisies - Showcase

This is a showcase week for A Day for Daisies.  This image is called Berry for Dinner.  It's the first time I've ever colored a squirrel!  I went on the internet and looked at some squirrel pictures, which helped me make decisions.  Mine are gray squirrels rather than brown.  One of the reasons I love being on the ADFD DT is for weeks like this that push me to develop my coloring skills.  Neat and Tangled's sentiment was perfect for this sweet image!

 (By the way, there's a free image bundle being offered with an $8 purchase.  Tree Top Dreams, seen below, is on sale for $2.00)  There's still a week to play in the watercolor challenge on the ADFD Blog.

Sketch Saturday - Sketch #388

We're back with a new sketch for you at Sketch Saturday.  This one was perfect for the leaf I embossed on watercolor paper (a year ago) and added the embossed sentiment to for a sympathy card.  I colored the leaf with a variety of old SU! markers and watercolor brush.  I decided to keep the card CAS, so back in the scrap drawer, I noticed a discarded embossed card back, and used the debossed side of embossing folder in the background.

Stop by the SS Blog to check out the DT inspiration and play along for a chance to win this week's prize from sponsor, Bunny Zoe Crafts.

CASology #173/ - Cue word: Pretty

Creative Knockouts #115 - Something to Say

This week's Creative Knockouts challenge is "Something to Say" - we'd simply like you to add a sentiment to your card.  Image That is our sponsor.  They have an assortment of already colored images and black line, so you can do your own coloring.  I'm using Joyous Reindeer from their collection.

Sketch Saturday - Sketch #386

Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor this week.  I decided to use their image, Glass of Wine A Day as a birthday card for a wine-lover I know.  I wanted to keep the glass big, so I made Debra's sketch into a long card, created a computer generated saying, and popped the glass out with Stampin' Dimensionals.   My friend likes to wear sparkles and bracelets, so I created a bracelet from some small rhinestones and used a gold Gel pen on her shirt and some of the flowers in the background paper.

Stop by the Sketch Saturday blog to see the fun ideas the DT has for you this week!

They are so versatile and can be dressed up for any occasion! I was so inspired by my other Teamie's use of watercolored backgrounds, I had to give it a try myself.  Many thanks to Freshly Made Sketches for the card design idea.
