Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge with some Fun in the Sun!!!

Hello Friends!  Happy Tuesday and hope everyone's enjoying their Summer so far! I know that it's going by so fast and I don't want it to end!   For my favorite season of the year, we've been trying to get our fill of going to the beach every chance we can and we are having so much fun!   Summer session of Jr. Lifeguard just ended for my boys Ryan and Noah, but they were so lucky to be able to go to the beach every day for this program.  They had hard daily workouts but also had lots of free time to play in the sun and enjoy water sports.  Here's a pic of them from their last competition at Carpenteria Beach just recently!

So with all my talk of the beach and Summer, it seems the perfect time to introduce our new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week and that is Summer Fun!!!

Our fantastic sponsor for this week is Kenny K!!!

Here is my card:

My card features a fun digi called "Racy Roxy" by Kenny K!  Kenny K has such great images and this pretty girl was so much fun to create with.  I colored her up with my Copic Markers and added my Wink of Stella in clear to her shades and the checkers on her outfit.  You can't really tell on the card but it looks very sparkly where I added the pen.  I decided to go with a background made using my Faded Dots Stencil  by Tim Holtz and some medium sculpting paste which I mixed in some Lindy Stamp Gang starburst spray in Cotton Candy Pink.  I also die cut a stitched circle  embossed with some polka dots for Roxy to sit on.  To finish off my card, I added some twine and sequins.  The Hello sentiment comes from a set called Contemporary Roses by My Favorite Things. Love the font on this!

Here are some other supplies used on my card:
Picked Raspberry - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink

Loves Rubberstamps Saturday Inspiration Day: Happy Birthday with Balloon Kaylee

Hello Friends, It's my Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration day!!!

I've been on a roll with making birthday cards and here is another one to share with you...

 This summer has been filled with so many birthdays!!!  In fact, we are celebrating my youngest son, Ethan's birthday today! We also have another birthday on Sunday and one next week.  I'm not exactly sure who will be getting this birthday card but it will definitely be given to a birthday celebrant soon!  The cute girl on my card is called Balloon Kaylee.  She's so adorable and I colored up her hair and skin with my Copic Markers.  I ended up paper piecing pretty much everything else on her.  The fun papers I used for this as well as the background are from Doodlebug Designs called Sugar Shoppe.  These papers are so perfect for birthday themed cards.  To finish off my card, I added some sequins and some twine.  The sentiment is also from this same cute stamp set. 

Here are the Supplies Used:
Balloon Kaylee - Some Odd Girl
Sugar Shoppe - Doodlebug Designs
Black Tuxedo -Memento Ink
Be sure to stop by the Loves Rubberstamps store to see the items used on my card and all the fun SOG stamp sets.   

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

TGF Farm Fresh Friday Challenge: My Reason to Smile!

Hello Friends and hope you've all had a fantastic week!  It has been so super busy and hectic for me between work and home and I'm so excited to have today off to watch my 2 oldest boys, Ryan and Noah in their Junior Lifeguard competition at the beach!  I love this program and each year my boys just really impress me with how much they've improved with their swimming and endurance skills!  I'm definitely looking forward to enjoying some fun in the sun in this warm weather we've been having lately!

So this week's  Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is a color challenge picked by DT member, Lysa!  Here is her inspiration photo:

Here is my inspiration card....

I do love this color palette and had so much fun creating this card and using the adorable Anya from the My Sunshine set!   She is so cute and perfect for paper piecing which is what I decided to do.  The pretty papers are from my Mind's eye from a Kate and Co collection called "Cambridge".  Such beautiful papers!  For the sentiment, I used some new sparkle embossing powder from Ranger and you can't really see it in the photo but it came out so nice and shimmery.  To finish off my card, I added a doily, some pink jute and some cute little Prima flowers I had in my stash!

Please check out The Greeting Farm blog to get the details on this challenge and to see the other amazing projects from the rest of the DT!  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
