You Can Do It!

Hey Everybody! I cannot believe how quickly the summer has flown by. My poor blog has not seen much activity from me, as I have been trying to hang with my kidlings as much as possible. But, I do have a new card to share with you today. Since my children are young, one of the newest Simply B Stamps collections really appealed to me. It's called 1st Steps. And I really saw my kids in all of these images. Today's card features "Think, Think Jude."

I colored Jude with my Phoenix in mind...right down to the mismatched socks. Let's just say that some things are pretty tough for my little man to deal with when it comes to the toilet. So, this card was to give him some encouragement. I also printed the image out super huge so that he can color it and make it into a chart to record when some of the things he needs to "do" gets done. I will spare you the dirty details. :)

I colored Jude and his toilet with my watercolor markers and Copics. The sentiment was stamped using a teeny alpha set from Inkadinkado.

I even added some glittery stars and ribbon, since Phoenix loves all that stuff. He was pretty stoked about the card. I hope it really helps him. A little encouragement can go a long way!
Just a little reminder, today is the last day to sign up for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop that is taking place on Wednesday. It's Bombshell's 5th Anniversary, so we really want this hop to be huge! So please sign p and play along. Go HERE for all the details. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love this card!:) And I can totally relate to the potty issues. Went through it with my daughter, and now I get to deal with that stuff with Xander.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
