Sweet Sunday Sketch!

Happy Monday Friends!  I had the day off from school, so I squeezed in a little stamping time.  Over the weekend, I visited my sweet Blogging friend, Nancy Thomas' blog.  She used a wonderful Stampavie stamp on one of her beautiful cards and she inspired me to dig through my Stampavie collection.  I found this adorable birthday mouse from the Tina Wenke collection and decided that it was time to ink him up!  I used my Copic Markers (B23, B24, C1, C3, E11, E13, E15,G82, G94, R00, RV11, RV13, Y38, YR20, YR21, and the Colorless Blender) to color him up and then I fussy cut him up.  My other details include the Circle STAX Die-namics from My Favorite Things, the Fishtail Flag Die-namics from MFT, the Sentimental Strip Die-namics from MFT with a sentiment from an MFT Pure Innocence set, a button from my stash, some Shore Baker's Twine from MFT, the Seeing Spots embossing folder, and some machine stitching.  The patterned papers are from A Muse (gingham) and Simple Stories (green polka dot). 
I visited Karen Giron's blog to sneak a peek at her Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and this week's sketch was just perfect for my image, so I used that for this creation. 
Thank you for visiting with me tonight.  Have a terrific Tuesday!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

Happy Snow Day to Me!

Hello Friends!  How are you all on this wonderful Wednesday?  It is not only a wonderful Wednesday, but a wintery one here in New England.  Schools were closed because we had a good amount of the fluffery stuff.  I have always loved snow and when it works out so that the snow gives me some extra stamping time...I love it even!
I inked up this little cutie for today's sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  She is from the Box of Love set from the MFT Pure Innocence collection.  I colored her up with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, E27, E40, E41, R20, R29, R30, R32, and the Colorless Blender) and then I used Nestabilities dies for the ovals.  The sentiment is from the MFT set Something Special Just For You and then I used the MFT Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut out the sentiment.  The heart was made with the MFT Hearts A Plenty Die-namics and then I added an MFT Kraft button and some Baker's Twine from The Cat's Pajamas.  All of the patterned papers are from Crate Paper.  The Pure Poppy and Kraft card stock are from Papertrey Ink.  A little bit of piercing and some machine stitching finish off this card. 
Thank you for visiting with me today.  Stay safe and warm!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

A Little Birdie...

Hello Friends!  Ugh...I have been having a dickens of a time trying to post to Blogger lately!  Anyone else out there having troubles too?  I have been trying to do this post for the past two hours, and that was the same story last week too!
Here is my card for this week's sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  You can find the sketch on their blog here.  I used the My Favorite Things Mouse in the House set, It's Your Birthday.  My furry little friend is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, BG01, BG13, BG18, E23, E25, E40, E41, E42, R00, R11, R20, R29, R59, Y38, YR21, and the Colorless Blender.)  I used Nestabilities for the oval and the scalloped oval.  The Pure Poppy card stock and buttons are from Papertrey Ink.  A little bit of paper piecing and some machine stitching finish off my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit.  I'm off to watch Castle and then hit the hay.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

My Favorite Things Sketch!

Hello Friends!  I have been struggling all evening to get this card posted...ugh!  I hope it works this time around.  I have Math Assessments up to my eyeballs to correct, but I just had to take a break from all of those numbers and give this sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club a try. 
I kept things very simple...not too much layering, no sewing, and light on the embellishments.  Just a sweet image (Blessings from Heather Ellis' House Mouse collection from My Favorite Things), some pretty papers (My Mind's Eye), and a few favorite embellishments (Circle Stax Die-namics, Papertrey Ink Button, Baker's Twine, and some Ocean Seam Binding from The Cat's Pajamas.)
Time for me to head back to the numbers.  Enjoy the rest of your evening and thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
