Peachy Keen challenge 29 Teddy Bear Picnic

Good morning friends! Today's Peachy Keen Challenge is to make a recipe card featuring a favorite picnic/barbecue side dish. The size of my recipe card is 6" x 6".
I created a pocket to hold the recipe. Since we were asked to make a picnic/barbecue recipe card I chose to make a scene using the stamp sets PK-034 Oh Baby, and PK-249 Honey Hugs and Bugs. I used the teddy bear stamp from PK-034. The picnic basket was cut from a Sizzix originals die. I used gingham patterned paper for the "tablecloth", not the traditional red and white checked. I stamped the bear onto a light brown cardstock and cut him out. Inked the edges with brown ink and added a little color to his cheeks. He is all set with his pot of honey for his favorite picnic dish, and no picnic is ever complete without a healthy dose of honey hugs and bugs. This was a fun challenge and you will be dazzled by what the rest of the DT have created. Click here for some awesome inspiration! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join in the fun and play along!

Whimsie Doodle Anniversary Blog Hop and Card Contest

Here is a card I made for Whimsie Doodle Anniversary Blog Hop and card contest. The image I chose is called Puddle Jumper and can be found in the Whimsie Doodles Store. Isn't she cute? I printed the digi image onto patterned papers and cut them out. I glued them onto a white image. I drew and colored the background scene with my copics, then used a white gel pen to put highlights on the curb and street. Thanks for taking a peek.

Peachy Keen challenge 28

Good Morning everyone! Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge! Today I used Pk-240, Say It With Flowers. I really enjoyed making this card for my MIL for Mother's Day! Red, white, and black is one of my favorite color combinations! I went with a more elegant card rather than my usual cutesy. I used copics to color the flowers and added a little glitter. Angelica provided us with a wonderful sketch. Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope you will play along. Peachy Keen always has a fabulous prize for one lucky winner. You can see what the other DT members have created as well as all the details for the challenge by clicking here.

Bird in the House

Hi Everyone!
Here is a bird house I made for a swap that I am in. I created this template and have used it before for an ice cream stand, (personally my favorite),but I thought it would be cute to make my birdhouse. The house stamp is by CTMH, Close to my Heart. The base of the card was made with an 8 X 11 piece of cardstock. You can see my amateur tutorial here. If you ever want to try it, please mention template copyright by Janice Wilson. Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits are always appreciated!
