Kitty Bee Designs challenge-#91 Spring Cleaning

Welcome! Today is the start of Aloha Fridays challenge #91-Spring Cleaning (Kitty Bee Designs). We want you to dig out old paper, stamps, embellishments, etc. and use them for a project.

Here is my project-



This has been one of the rainiest winters I've seen in Oregon, and that's saying something! As I write this, it has rained all night and our "lake" in the back yard is rising! I may have to put water wings on the dogs!

Here are the materials I've used for this card-
  1. Image: Hootie-Rain, Rain Go Away (Crafty Sentiments), colored with Prismacolor pencils (hardly used since I've gone to Copics).
  2. Paper: light blue, light teal, white cardstock (stash) cloud cardstock (Bella Blvd, Park Play).
  3. Stamp: sentiment (Studio G, hardly used!), Versafine Onyx ink.
  4. Dies: banner, rounded rectangle (My Favorite Things),  scalloped card front (Cricut Artiste) banner pole (Spellbinders key that has been modified).
Thanks for visiting, and I'm hoping to see the sun soon!

SoSS Stencil Challenge

I was so thrilled to see this challenge at Sisterhood of Snarky Stamps-S is for Stencils! I've had the stamp, the clip art, the stencil, all ready and waiting to put this idea together! Yeah, a year later and it's done-ha!

Here it is:


For Christmas, my hubby got me the PERFECT little compressor for my Copic markers. The stencil is from The Crafters Workshop and is a 6 x 6 size. I used R37 and a YR 27 for the flames, and Y08 for the internal flames and the sentiment box. B000 colored the sky.  I found the roller coaster on the internet somewhere (it was a while back). The sentiment is by Riley & Co., which besides being funny is also all too true! My friend Reva is complaining about hot flashes, so she'll get a big kick out of this card!

Thanks for stopping by.
