Love You To The Stars And Back



Mandy has a very fun challenge for us this week at Little Red Wagon.  It's a perfect opportunity to use one of the many fab techniques to create you very own galaxy or night sky.  I would think stars and moons would be cool to use too.  I decided to use distress ink, water and embossing powder to create my sky.  I even managed to get it a little Northern Lights effect and added a few tiny PPP stars.

Here's my card using Mama Elephant's Bear Hugs -



I certainly hope you'll have time to play along with us at Little Red Wagon.  Seeing what the Girlfriends have created would at the very least be suggested.  You know their stuff is going to be worth taking a look at.

Happy Hump Day, thanks for stopping by!

Aloha,
Brenda

Oh, Baby!


Hi, everyone.  Happy weekend!  I'm kicking off my Saturday by sharing a couple of baby cards I made with the new June Frantic Stamper release, Summer Carnival Fun.  When I saw this little Performing Lion, I could just see him sitting in a baby's crib all cute and cuddly.  Here's what happened -




I couldn't stop with just one and made another card using Performing LionStitched Rounded SquaresDouble Stitched Fishtail Label and the sentiment is by Mama Elephant.  

Thanks so much for coming by.  I pray your weekend is full of all the things you love!

Aloha,
Brenda

#468 Playful Kitty


Happy Saturday!  If it's Saturday, that means we have a great new sketch at Sketch Saturday.  Gloria created this rather CAS and definitely fun design -


Our generous sponsor this week is -



Here's my take on the sketch using a darling freebie (yes, really, it's free, check it out) from our sponsor, Playful Kitty -



This is such a wonderful sketch and such a sweet digi.  I colored the kitties up with Copic markers to resemble by beloved, Shammy Cat, a lilac point siamese I dearly loved.  The papers are by Nitwit Collections and the double bow was tied using my Bow-It-All.

As always, I hope you will have time to join us this week.  You can go here for more details on the challenge.  Remember there is a prize up for grabs from Scrap N' Dipity.  I also want to remind you of the DT call and encourage you to give it a try.  This is a great, easy going team with fab sketches and wonderful sponsors.  Check here here for more information.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lilikoi


It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to share you favorite.  Use your favorite fruit or let the color inspire your creation.  Don't forget to tell us why it's your favorite fruit.

This week our sponsor is:



You may be wondering, what in the world is lilikoi.  It is a wonderful fruit found here, in Hawaii, better know as passionfruit.  The blooms are beautifully unique...here's a picture of one we recently planted in the yard -


Our fruit is not ready yet, but here is a pic I Googled from My Lilikoi Kitchen -


I love the wonderful unique flavor of lilikoi.  Fresh squeezed lilikoi juice is so flavorful and refreshing.  I also love lilikoi butter which is absolutely delicious on hot pancakes.  It makes my mouth water to think of it.  Lilikoi is also used to flavor cheese cake, shave ice and lilikoi bars (like lemon bars) are so ono (Hawaiian word for delicious).

Here is my card inspired by the color of this magical fruit -


We would love for you to check out the AYLI blog and link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  Don't forget now, we want to know what your favorite fruit is and why it is your favorite.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well!

Aloha,
Brenda
