Peachy Keen Challenge 31

Good morning everyone!

Today's Peachy Keen Challenge is a sketch challenge. I was born and raised in WI and love the Packers. The large letter G was printed from the computer and colored with copics. I used some of the stamps from PK-25, Go Pack Go Snowman and PK-224 Mouse Gets the Cheese. The large cheesehead is retired.

I hope you will join in the challenge. You may visit the blog and check out what the other designers have created. You won't be disappointed. Thanks for stopping by!

And the WINNER is....

Hello friends! Sorry you all had to wait so long to hear who won PK-267 Happy Bird and phrases .

There were 160 comments. Kathy from PKS used pickrandom.com to choose the number. She helped me out, as I have never done this kind of drawing before. Mine were always, pick a name out of the hat kind of drawing. So the number picked at random was 43, which means Peekpu, you are the lucky winner. Please contact me so I can mail your stamp set. Thanks for all the wonderful comments. We had so much fun with the blog hop so there will definitely be more in the future. Come back tomorrow for another Peachy Keen Challenge.

Peachy Keen Stamp Set Release and Blog Hop and Prize update

Got Birds?

The stamp set at the top of the picture is the prize one lucky winner will receive. I will be away from my blog from Thurs to Sunday, so random.org will pick a winner and I will let you know by Monday, June 21. I just wanted to show the variety of ways you can color this darling little bird. I am making some gift tags for a retreat I am going to.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments. It is wonderful to know that you have inspired someone or taught them something new. I appreciate all of you!! I had fun on the hop and hope you all had fun too.

Good morning friends!
Today we have a special stamp release and blog hop. If you arrived here from Lorie's blog, you are in the right place. If not you will want to start at the beginning, the PKS blog. Kathy designed this stamp set and named it Vivienne and Friends. Viv is such a delight, with a wonderful sense of humor, and we all love her! In fact we are all one big happy Peachy Keen Family!

Now on to my cards. I made 3 cards. Isn't this little Viv such a sweetie? I stamped the image onto patterned paper and cut out the dress and bow for her hair. The background was colored with copics.

The card with the red polka dot ribbon was colored with Prismaolor pencils and gamsol. The 3rd card I had a lot of fun with. Little Viv was walking 5 little pups and got tangled in a web of leashes. To reverse the pups image I stamped it onto an acrylic block and put the paper onto the image being careful not to smudge it. After I colored the image I traced over it with a fine black marker. I added a little pink tongue to the puppy that has tackled Viv and is smothering her with kisses.

I have a prize to offer, PK-267 Happy Bird and phrases . Leave a comment for a chance to win.

On to the next stop along the way. Nikki
is next on the list. Her card is lovely. Make sure and stop by everyone's blog. You won't want to miss any of the projects and some have a chance to win a prize. Have fun!
If you get lost along the way here is the list starting with our dear sweet Viv!

Summer Postcard Swap

Here are a few summer postcards I made for a swap that I am in. I stamped the images onto watercolor postcards and colored them with copics. These were fun to do and it was nice to do a single layer for a change. I love those Peachy Keen seahorses. I used bright, whimsical colors. The postcard with the fish and crab was made with a clear dollar stamp set. Great images for a buck, don't you think? Now if only the weather was more summerlike. It is cold and rainy here.

Good Morning Friends! Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge #30

Good Morning! Today's Peachy Keen Challenge was to make a summer themed shadowbox. This picture was taken in 1991 in CA. Those cute little boys are my sons, Rob and Scott. I love the expression of sheer delight on Rob's face, while his brother plays along the shore. I am not sure of what Scott is holding in his hand. Possibly a water gun? They were always the best of friends and still are. Where does the time go?

I printed the image onto a full sheet of photo paper. I trimmed along the horizon and cut a strip from the bottom of the photo to create the waves. I used the shark and the fish from PK-952, the cute little crab from PK-950, and PK-790, Boogie Board Max. I used MSS-04 for the sun and clouds. The images were colored with copics. I hope you will play along for a chance to win. Peachy Keen always has wonderful prizes! As always thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visits. Have a great day! Oh and you will want to see what the other designers have created. You won't be disappointed!

Peachy Keen Love You!

I used PK-225, Happy Flowers and Cheerful Phrases to make this simple little notecard. Another fun card just to say Hi!
Thanks so much for having a look at my cards. I hope they inspire you to create something fun! Have a great day!

Peachy Keen "Hay" Chick!

Here is a card I made using PK-221, Henny Penny and PK-203,Simple Barn, Silo, Sun and Cloud. I used Copics to color the images and a white gel pen to draw and color the clouds. I cut strips of paper to make a bail of hay and hand wrote the sentiment, Hay Chick! I had fun making this card and I think it turned out kind of cute!

Peachy Keen Smile

Hello Everyone! I have a few cards I would like to post, using my Peachy Keen Stamps. I love Peachy Keen Stamps and I hope you enjoy my cards! Thanks for looking!
I used PK-243, Potted Happy Flower.
