Stamping 411-photo frame

Good evening, I hope you have had a good weekend and I am sorry to say it just about over. Well this entry is for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge I have been wanting to use my new motorcycle stamp I got from the summer mini. Instead of making a card I made a LO to put in a 8x10 photo frame. I have to tell you why I love this stamp so much. My dad was a Police officer, not only was he a police officer but he was a motorcycle cop. He is no longer with us so I do so cherish anything that reminds me of him.

On this LO I used Gray, night of navy, sahara sand, and the new espresso CS. I colored the motorcycle with my blender pen and ink pads. I hope you like it. Thanks for stoppin by:)


The minute I saw this set I new you would love it or then I was wondering about if it was bad memories. Steph he is still with you only you can't see him but he still watch over you.
Take care. Love your frame .
What a wonderful tribute to your Dad. Thanks for sharing!!

What a great way to use the sketch this week! I love your layout - it's a fabulous tribute!
As a former police officer myself (and married to one still), I have the utmost respect for your Dad. Motormen are a rare breed - and so very necessary to the police mission.
Thanks for playing this week and sharing with us!

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
