Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning,

I am a late poster this morning! Good grief!! Let me just say that having a teenager sometimes throws things off a bit.

I have a great image to share with you from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. I also participated in a few challenges along with it. I hope you like my card.


First off, the image, this is Owl on Branch and is available for purchase here. And great news!! Remember Lindsay was running a sale last month, spend $5 get a stamp free? Well it's going to be sticking around awhile! Whoo-hoo! What a great way to build your collection of awesome digi-stamps quickly and saving money.

I colored the image with prismacolor markers (Buff, Cinnamon Toast, Light Olive, Avocado, Dark Umber and Goldenrod). I used primas and bling from K&Company and cream colored ribbon to embellish. The sentiment I made up myself, corny, I know.

Don't forget to visit the other design team members, they are all linked in my sidebar, one of us has a free digi and it is a great image!

Now for the challenges I participated in...

1) Sweet Sketch Wednesday - it's speaks for itself. Great sketch!
2) Digital Tuesday Challenge - a digi of course, but add some bling.
3) Color Throwdown - this was a challenge for me!! Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, Blush Blossom and Basic Gray. Colors I use, but never together. They worked.

Thanks for visiting me today. It's always a pleasure.

Wow 3 challenges! You go girl! I know what you mean about late posting. I got in bed last night at 11:30 and realized that tomorrow was thursday! Oh crap! I totally let the week slip by. So I got out of bed, made my card and posted it at about 1:00am. Yawn! Great looking card! I love that owl!
