CTS#181 - Day Filled with SunshineI have  fun card to share with you today!  I have been trying to play along with the 30-day Coloring Challenge again.  I miss some days but I like that I think about taking time (even just a few minutes) to color….just because.  It also pushes me to look for inspiration and find some fun challenges in which to play.  I was able to do just that for this card.  I started using the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for the week as my sketch and also decided to join the Simon Wednesday Challenge.  The sketch is a wonderfully clean one that I hope I didn’t stretch too far.  The Simon challenge is to create a scene with a focus on Newton’s Nook stamps.

I used the adorable stamp set Newton’s Day Dream to create this little scene.  As usual for all cat things, my cat muse is my sweet little calico Kate.  I think in her perfect world she would nap with all these fun things flying about.  Or so she tells me when she tried to sneak outside and is caught.  *smile*  I colored using my Zig Clean Color Pens in the following colors:IMG_3591I really do love coloring with these pens so much!!  I cut the image panel out using my Wonky Stitches die to add a little more fun detail.  Just a quick post today.  I hope you have a lovely Saturday filled with sunshine.

FMS245 - Happy BirdsI am so happy to be able to share our adorable sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  This one is such fun and lends itself to so many things….DSP, colored panels, great focal images.  Should not come as a surprise that the incredible Jen Mitchell is this week’s sketch hostess!

I opted to focus on a fun stamp from WPlus9’s Happy Birds.  These birds still just crack me up!  I  colored him using my Zig Clean Color Markers (just two colored needed).  I chose zig-zag print from Pop of Pink DSP (SU) and cut it a using Border Builders die from Lil’ Inkers.  The focal panel was cut with a Stitched Rectangles die (SSS).  I chose a sentiment from Paper Pumpkin….I know….those seem to be my go-to lately but they really are so trendy and great!  I finally topped it with a few sequins.

FMS Final 245-001I hope you have a great time with this one.  Guessing the gallery will be just loaded with inspiration!!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a new card that has a Product Review for Splitcoaststampers.  It even included a video tutorial so I hope you’ll stop in!  See you soon!
