Fun-Filled Friday Challenge Announcement

This week it's my turn to challenge Jen again. I decided we should make something using our ScorPal. She has been getting alot of practice with this lately on her blog. I haven't used mine much except to crease my cards.

I hope you decide to play along I would love to see your ScorPal creations!

Happy Crafting,

Hoppy Easter!

This weeks Fun-Filled Friday challenge was to make an Easter card. Here is what I came up with :

I did a couple of different things with this card. I stamped my image on watercolor paper and used my SU! inks with a water pen to color in my bunnies. I think it turned out pretty good, especially for a first try. I also used my SU! piercing template I got for my birthday. It makes paper piercing so easy!

Here is a close up of my coloring:

Supplies :
  • stamp Happy Hoppers by Stampendous
  • paper - watercolor paper by Archivers, card stock by The Paper Company
  • miscellaneous - Prima Flowers, SU! paper piercing template, SU! inks, SU! Photo Corner Punch, brads by Joann Craft Essentials
Well, I hope you are all getting ready for a nice Easter. I unfortunately have to work this weekend and Sunday will be a 16 hour day for me - YUCK! So have some candy and hunt some eggs for me:)

Happy Crafting,

Technical difficulties

Sorry my FFF post is going to be a bit delayed. My hubby was playing with our camera the other night and it's in sepia mode. I have no clue how to change it! I can't find our manual either - so I will have to wait until he gets home tonight to put things back to normal. Maybe I should take some camera lessons - ha ha.

Stay tuned!

Happy Birthday

I had to make a Masculine Birthday card for a friend of ours. I always have such a hard time with these. I make my hubby ok it before I give it out. If it's too "girly", then I try to come up with something else. Here is what I came up with this time :

So what do you think? I had fun with this one. I colored it with my Prismacolor markers and tried to stick with blues and greys for the rest of the card.

Supplies :
  • stamp - Beerafella by Stamping Bella
  • paper by DCWV Latte stack
  • miscellaneous - Stampin' up! inks, Stampin' Up! tag corner punch, black VersaFine ink, brads by Joann Craft Essentials
Well, I hope you are having a nice week.
