OLW 64: Color It and Less is More 33

This week's OLW challenge by Susan is to COLOR IT! Stamp an outline image and color it with your choice of color medium. I chose this image from Stamps by Judith and colored it using various Copics. My paper of choice for a Copic colored one-layer card is Gina K's heavy weight card stock . . . wonderful stuff!! 

I'm also entering this card in the Less is More Challenge #33, Anything CAS Goes! Chrissie and Mandi have a goal to reach 1000 cards by the end of this week. Go, go, go!!!

Thank you for the visit today. Comments always welcome *wink*

OLW63!!!! Welcome Back!!!

I'm so-o-o-o happy that OLW has resumed its weekly challenges.  Wednesdays just weren't the same without it =)

Jennifer is hosting this week and the challenge is to create a one-layer baby themed card. Using a Sizzix die, an Impress polka dot border and sentiment from Stampin' UP!, my card is done! Well actually it wasn't quite that easy. My plan was to use a gingham background, but that just didn't work out on paper like it did in my head . . . sigh. Anyway, so happy to have time to play today. Life is just crazy lately.

Thanks for stopping by.

Colorful Thank You

Last year at Stampaway I purchased a stamp from Red Lead with tiny polka dots closely spaced primarily for the purpose of creating my own polka dotted embellishments. It's taken a year for that idea to come to fruition, but here ya go . . .

I used Stampin' UP! card stock and separated the layers for a more layered look without the thickness. The background stamp is a "Ditto" dittie (*snort*) that I found on clearance at Michael's. Sentiments are from Papertrey Ink.

A very happy, safe Labor Day to my US readers. I'm looking forward to cooking out with the kids and grandkids.

As always, thank you for stopping by.
