This was a Sketch Challenge found here: Challenge #1. I used Wild Wasabi, Sparkle Green, Cameo Coral and Whisper White. I used the Gina K. Make A Wish stamp set. It's just a very simple card........but I DID add some bling!!!!
This was a Color Challenge found here: Challenge #3. We were to use Soft Sky, Taken With Teal and Pumpkin Pie. I like those colors together!!!! I thought of doing something Boho.........but I don't have any of those stamps...............yet!! I used Gina's Tag, You're It stamp set for this.......and, of course, my Nesties!!!
This was for another Sketch Challenge found here: Challenge #4. We were to make a scene!! Now.....my first (and very smart-alecky self) wanted to make a toddler throwing a tantrum on the card.........but I had no such stamp!!! So..........a scenery scene it is!!! LOL I just love this Hippo!!!! I used the Gina K........Melanie Muenchinger Just So Hippy set. I colored with Prisma pencils and used Gamsol. Then I cut her tail out to make it 3D so she could actually hold the basket of flowers!! And why YES!!! You noticed the stickles??? Yep!! She's a girly hippo here!! And has toenail polish and her tooth glistens and her blue eyes shine!! Oh and so do the butterflies!!!
Now...............guess what??? I also won some Blog Candy!!! Melanie had posted about a fellow blogger, Wendi, who's nephew was shaving his head to raise money for Children's Cancer research. Anyone who donated was entered into the contest..........and let me tell you...........some amazing prizes from all kinds of stamp designers, etc. Go check it out!! I won a CD full of Erika Martin's own artistic creativity!! As her blog is an absolutely amazing place with FAB, FAB, FABulous projects and designs.........I can only imagine how I will treasure this prize!!! Thank you Wendi and Erika!!!!! I'm a happy, happy girl!!! And, even more so, happy and proud to see teenagers that are awesome being recognized and standing up for wonderful causes!!! Go Jeremy!!! And now his brother Zach!!!!
