The flower "spokes" on the front and both wheel rims are colored with my clear sparkly gellyroll pen, and the muffler and other parts are colored with the grey sparkly pen...but that's so hard to see in this photo. Maybe if you clicked to enlarge it might show it. Did you notice my bow? Uh-huh... doin' a little "Melissa Bove" action there, LOL!!! Hey, I'm trying!!!

Okay, maybe not! Teeheee!! Stampavie has arrived at KL Stampin N Scrappin! This adorable image is by Sarah Kay and is called Picnic of Daisies (which is my favorite flower, btw). I watercolored her, and used my Nesties to cut her out. She's layered on various patterns of the new Basic Grey paper called Lime Rickey and boy do I ♥ this bright, fun paper!! The fun scalloped shape in green and dp is the Top Note die from SU! and the sentiment is a $1 stamp I got at Michael's. Well, that's about it for today. If you'd like to see what other new stamps are available for pre-order, please click on over to KLSNS.
Have a super day and hope you get to Ink Something!

The cross and sentiment is from the "Everyday Blessings" set by Papertrey Ink. The Nesties and pearls are from KL Stampin' N Scrappin' store (although she's no longer taking orders on Spellbinders Nestabilities--sorry). And the designer paper...??? not sure who makes it but I got it from our LSS before they went out of business.

My SBS4 group (Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers) recently did a Spring Swap and now that my sis got her goodies, I can share this with you! I decorated a tin can with this bright springy paper from DCWV. The dark coral paper has a design in it, but hard to see that here. I decorated 3 Magnolias and pop-dotted them in between the letters of her name, "JANE" --hi Jane!! I didn't take a picture of the goodies inside, but I filled it with mini brads, glue dots, buttons, white gel pen, her favorite candy, and then I also sent her a card and a bunch of stamped images of animals, as those are some of her favorite images to use (or at least I hope I got that right?) LOL.

I also thought I'd try something I've never done before--these curly que thingies I saw on Carolyn's blog. I loved this card of hers and think these unusual paper twisties adds such a fun element to the card... I likey!! ☺ Carolyn's another one of those extremely seasoned stampers...love everything she makes! Here's her blog: PMS, etc (it's NOT what you think!) LOL.
Thanks for stopping in!! Hope you find time to Ink Something!

- Pick a cuttlebug folder, a classic ink pad, and lighter shade of cardstock to use. I used Floral Fantasy with Tempting Turqoise ink, and Cool Caribbean cardstock (as well as Pink Passion and Pretty in Pink c.s.)
- Brayer on just one side of your folder. I inked up what would be the background so the flowers popped up are the lighter shade of cardstock. (see pic #2)
- Close your folder and run through the Cuttlebug/big shot or whatever machine you use =P
- Then I punched out my cardstock with a Marvy Butterfly punch that I bought at ... the Dollar Tree!!
- Go rinse off your cuttlebug folder under water real well so it doesn't stain :)
That's it!! I then punched out some solid butterflies out of the darker shade of cardstock and adhered the embossed b-flies with a rolled up glue dot just in the middle so that the wings could be "free." SO, you ready to go try it?!
**NOTE: Heidi's challenge does NOT have to include this technique, you just have to have a cuttlebugged accent instead of background. When you finish your card, please upload it on the PCP forum and put KLSNS04 in your key words/tags if you want a chance to win!! You have til the end of April.
Would you like to have a Guest spot on our Design Team?? Kelly's looking for someone to showcase each Thursday in May!!! Go check out the deets HERE.

I used watercolor pencils and aqua painter to color images, and paper pieced her robe on most cards. I also used different Spellbinders dies. The rest is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have questions, please feel free to ask! :)
My favorites out of the 4 are the 2 middle ones. SO...which is your fave??

The blue card base is scored on the left side--my ribbon covers the straight fold line ; P
I added some pink clear puffy hearts in varrying sizes to my cocoa satin ribbon--it just needed something there and I didn't even realize they go perfectly with the pink hearts dp until I posted it, lol!! I added a couple of paper doilies and used my oval scallop Nesties, as well as stickles and gellyroll pens (guess the lighting didn't pick that up?) Here's a close up:

Happy Friday!! Look at this amazing sugared egg that my 4th grader made at school!!! Her whole class got to make these and then brought them home yesterday. Of course they had help making those gorgeous flowers on top, but the whole thing is so beautiful!!
Here's a better picture of the top of flowers:

Oh, and I received this cute Fluffles card in the mail from Kelly also this week!! Thank you so much Kelly!! (I ♥ Fluffles)
Thank you everyone for all your wonderful comments you've been leaving me!! I'm still haven't quite a bad time with my allergies, but I doubled up on the Allegra and it got somewhat better tonight. I'll have to call my Dr. in morning and see what we can do. Hope you all have a great week!!
Hurray for Snail Mail!!

I've got 5 extra people coming over this Sunday for Easter dinner, so I went a little crazy and moved all my livingroom furniture around--ya know, trying to make more room! And btw...I'm one of those "Ta Da!" people, LOL...meaning that I like to get it all done before my husband comes home so he'll be so proud and ya know, *eh hum* cook dinner etc. SO, I ended up moving the piano (by myself), and stacking the t.v. stand on top of a bookshelf and I managed (with my girls' help) to get the t.v. on the top and now it's "hiding" (but not really) behind one of the couches. Do you feel sorry for me yet?!! LOL. I know you're asking...and yes! I'm sore tonight, and can't imagine what tomorrow will feel like. So I best get to bed...it's already 10 p.m. (oh ya, and in case you're wondering...yes, my hubby DID cook dinner--he BBQ'ed teriyaki chicken, YUMMO!!
Anyway, here's a larger picture of the pull out tag:

Sorry the video is so dark, but the lights had to be down for the video behind her to show up. (If you click the bottom button...2nd one in from right, it will fill your screen, although it loses quality)
**NOTE: If other clips appear after this video, please do not click on them.
I have no control over what YouTube attaches at the end. Thank You!
