~Birdbrain Hula Chick


We had a wonderful weekend in Edmonton for Kirsten's last skating competition of the season. She placed silver and is so delighted with that!  She really has had a fabulous season. She is such a dedicated, hardworking young lady that I am so very proud of!

So now into some crafty goodness!  We have a super new sketch with a tWiSt for you over at From The Heart Stamps. The tWiSt is to make anything but a card.  I didn't use the tWiSt this time around as I made this card to send to the wonderful people whose condo we stayed in while we were in Maui.

The set is called Birdbrain Hula Chick. I have used some fun papers from CTMH called Footloose and a wooden star shape that is from CTMH as well. 

I hope you'll play along with us this week, you can use the sketch and the tWiSt or just one or the other is fine too. You do need to use an image from the FTHS store but that's easy enough because Faith has a ton of new images available right now, not to mention a store full of fabulous oldies but goodies! You'll even earn $1 in the FTHS store just for playing along!  

Have a look at the fabulous inspiration my teammates have created for you!

Hugs and happy crafting!

~Mixed Bouquet


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We had the first of 2 skating carnivals that Kirsten is in and it was great!  Alice In Wonderland was the theme and everything was fantastic!! Next weekend is our club's carnival and then skating is almost done for the season!  She has 2 competitions left and is very excited for both of them!

I'm happy it's Monday because that means I can share with you our newest sketch with a tWiSt from over at From The Heart Stamps.  Not only do we have a fun sketch to share with you but also a tWiSt that you can choose to include or not.  You can do the sketch, the tWiSt or the sketch and the tWiSt!  
This week our tWiSt is monochromatic colors. 


This kind of tWiSt is definitely not my strong suit (I kow I snuck the yellow flowers in there, but stayed monochromatic with my papers:-) but I wanted to play along anyway and use both the sketch and the tWiSt!  My image is called Mixed Bouquet and my papers are from Echo Park- This & That and CTMH CS in Hollyhock and Blush.  

Here is our sketch this week as well.


As always, every participant will receive $1 to the FTHS store just for playing along.  You are now required to use an image from over at FTHS, but Faith has a library full of wonderful images for you to choose from, so I know that part won't be hard!!  Be sure to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my team mates on the FTHS blog too!!

Hugs,

~Spring is in The Air Blog Hop with FTHS


http://fromtheheartstamps.com/community/blog/

It's blog hop time again and this time we are celebration Spring is in The Air!  Well I hope it is right around the corner for most of us but with our weather lately...I'm not so sure!  We have a wonderful hop for you today featuring fabulous springtime creations from the From The Heart Stamps DT!

And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store!

Here is my project, using Hamlet PigWit Thing Spring. 
This fun digi is also the Stamp Of The Month so be sure to check out that challenge as well!


I tried Prismacolor pencils this time as Copics were giving me heck...user error I'm sure, but I was having a hard time with the pinks, then I went to the grass and my marker was dried out so I printed it for the 3rd time and went with Prismacolor pencils:-)  I have used this week's sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for my layout and paired it with Country Drive paper from Echo Park.  It was from a Taylored Expressions kit from some time ago and I used the CS that came with it so I am not sure of the brand.  Buttons are from CTMH.

 If you have arrived from Kathy's blog, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.
