Graphicat Sketch #9: Terribly Late...Naughty

Happy Memorial Day!! This is the kick off to Summer and what a beautiful day it is. But let's put a pause on all the B-B-Q'ng and Pool jumping for a minute and give thanks to all the brave troops that have fought for us and for all the ones that continue to do so.

Today is also the beginning of a new sketch over at Graphicat Sketch Challenge. Here is my take on the challenge. It may seem like it's not there but I promise that it is, just peel off the layers of flowers. Lol. 

I, again, used my favorite Hatter from Tickled Pink Stamps. He comes from Lil Perfect Match line, which by the way is 40% off. I was inspired by his top hat, which is why I added on to the front and one to the inside. The sentiment I used on the front, is one of my favorite lines of the movie. It's in the scene when Alice is arriving to the Tea Party. (This is not a digi, I typed it up myself).

For the inside of my card, I used one of Hatter's famous quote. This sentiment digi is called "Why Is A Raven" and can be found at the Graphicat Store.

Not Too Shabby for Tickled Pink Stamps

Happy Sunday! This week Tickled Pink Stamps is proudly sponsoring The Corrosive Challenge where the theme is "Not too Shabby - Shabby Chic or Vintage Style" . We hope you head on over there and join in all the fun and you'll have a chance to win some Tickled Pink digis too. In the meantime here's my inspiration for the challenge.

I went for a Shabby Chic look. I'll always been a little lost as to what constitutes Shabby Chic or Vintage but I found a trick to it. Find a stack that you love that could pass off as that look, I chose DCWV Preppy Princess then add pearls and lace (I couldn't find my lace so I substituted) and voila, you have tricked yourself into a shabby chic look, lol.

For my image I used Party Pinkette Coraline, one of my favorite Pinkettes. She's great for all your birthday cards and once you cut off the balloon, for other projects as well. Make sure you hop on over to the Tickled Pink Stamp Shop to check out the Lolitas, Lads and Pinkettes. Also, make sure you hop on over to the Tickled Pink Blog to see some gorgeous Pink Lady creations.

Little Sheriff

Hello!! I'm here with a Little Sheriff card featuring Wild West Ian, The Greeting Farm. I ran with the idea of creating a lasso for him and then just throwing it all over the card. Kind of like his little lasso went out of control. lol

Happy Thursday!! It's going to be a very hot and nice day today. Hopefully the weather is warming up on your side. So onto my cards, I'm here with a few generic cards featuring my beloved Greeting Farm stamps. It was time to dust off my stamps, I had been ignoring them :( lol. These will be great for when I'm in a bind and  need a Birthday, Thank you or Whatever card.  Plus, I'm really trying to make a dent in my scraps. I've accumulated a smile pile on my table and I just want to get through all that, I need my space back. :)

SOG Fun with a little Tiddly Love

Happy Saturday Night!!! How are you enjoying your evening? I should be organizing and packing but instead I decided to create a bright and cheery card using Roller Mae to play along with Some Odd Girl. Today was a special day of Facebook Funday for SOG where discounts, tutorials and lots of SOGgy love were found.

I used the Sketch from the SOG Sketch Challenge

I also have a little Tiddly card inspired by the Mom's challenge over at Tiddly Inks. This one was made for my mom from her little princess, who is no longer me, lol! I've been replaced by my niece, oh well circle of life. Hehehe.  
Image Used: Everyday Princess by Tiddly Inks  - I accidentally cut off her scepter but its ok :)

Graphicat Sketch #8 with a TPS Sponsor

Happy Monday! It's the start of another Graphicat Sketch, #8 to be exact. This one is has a lot of possibilities, so hopefully, you play along. 

Here is my take on the sketch. I used one of my favorite Tickled Pink Stamp images, Lil Little Lolita Ivy, who is currently on sale. In case you haven't heard, Tickled Pink Stamps is having a blow out sale where all rubber stamps must go and digis have a 25% off. Sadly Tickled Pink will be closing down, which you can read about it HERE, but in the meantime all images are still available for purchase so make sure you get yours. 

This week, TPS is sponsoring The Corrosive Challenge, where the theme is Flowers, Doilies and Bling (use at least 2 of the 3).  I used all three items, how could I not, I just looooooove me some flowers :) 

Sentiment: Graphicat Designs

Fantabulous Cricut Guest Spot

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend . This week I am the Fantabulous Monday Guest over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. Shocking, I know. Lol. But I still do use my cricut machine for my shapes and card bases, and the occasional image.

The theme for this week is: Mother/Special Lady using her Favorite Colors. I created this card with my Mum in mind. She loves green so I choose this soft green from an old DCWV stack (name unknown as I tore off the front cover way back when I bought it).  My image comes from Kates ABCs. I just love that cart, I think its the cutest thing ever but I hardly use it. To be honest, the thought of finding the right DP for all those layers puts me off. Lol. So I decided to give the cartridge my flair. I used the Cri-Kits to draw out the image and then I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. I probably take longer coloring then gluing the layers but this is more me :)

So now its your turn to make your "Mami" her special card. A HUGE Thanks to FCCB for having me as their special Monday Guest. Please hop on over to Fantabulous Cricut to check out all the wonderful cricut creations the DT created and to play along.
