I used the Basic Grey sketch provided over at Simply Scrapping in their Basic Grey lover's group...fought with this LO for a LOOOONG time! actually...kept moving stuff around and taking that i could pull it up on my screen and get a slightly different view of it! this is what i ended up with and i'm fairly pleased...if you get past the whole...pepto bismol look! LOLOLOL! Enjoy!

Well...when The Greeting Farm unveiled their newest relase...the Cheeky Cherry Collection...I just HAD TO have them! They arrived yesterday...and I got right to playing! It took me awhile to put this card together...I always find that I have issues getting the mojo going after a long week at work...but by this morning I was able to get moving! I used Friday Sketchers sketch #90 to put together the card. Enjoy!

I'm seriously having to face some addiction problems here. copics. two...anything from The Greeting Farm! This is for their Farm Fresh Friday (FFF 2/5/10) challenge, which was a sketch. It's a simple card...I fought the urge to really add much of anything to it...I used my copic air brush to color the pearls for a perfect match...and hit the fringe of her dress with some Stickles to make it pop and/or give it an idea or hint of possible beading...well...we'll see how long this addiction lasts...very weekend I will be at the Stamp Scrap Art Tour here in Columbia, SC!!!!  good chance i'll find some more goodies to feed my scrappy addictions!!! to color more!

This is another amazing set from The Greeting Farm...I know it's a little on the cheesy side...superheroes done up like Wonder Woman (one of my personal faves) and Superman (eh...ok...)...but it was what instantly popped into mind with these two! This started out as a random coloring practice (yeah...that's Superman #2) and came across this most fabulous card sketch at Friday Sketchers (Sketch #88)...and all just clicked (in my mind at least...a rare occurrence!). So here is my red, white and blue... a little early for July 4th...but you know how it is...gotta get ahead somehow!

Supplies: Paper - CTMH and SU; Cardstock - SU, Bazzil; Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black and CTMH Moonstruck; Images - TGF Amazing Duo; Stickles - Diamond; Copics - E000, E00, E01, R02, R24, R27, R29, Y15, Y17, B24, B26, B28, B29, E31, E53, E55, E57, E59; Ribbon and Brads unknown
