Super Challenge Saturday

Good Morning!

Happy Saturday Challenge day! I am so excited to be hosting this round because I have lots of NEW to share with you.


Here's my card. Are they not the cutest fairies ever! Oh my goodness, these little girls are so sweet. They came from Renae at Two Scoops of Rice. What a wonderful blog this is. Joni - The Queen of Enabling found this blog and well, I was hooked. I pre-ordered the set Garden Fairies and as a gift she sent me this free digi. If you head on over there, tell her Melissa and Joni sent you.

Here's the challenge. I found this sketch while playing on the computer one day. This is from Sketch Lovers and I believe this is a fairly new site, she's only got a few sketches, but they're fun and sometimes having that little bit of inspiration is all we need to get the creative juices flowing. I'm sorry the picture came out sort of small, it's how it saved.

Back to the details of my card and all the new stuff! First of all, the image. I already told you about that. The background paper was one of the GinaK release party freebies. I'm pretty sure you can still download them for free and that is totally cool! This is from the Rich and Shabby collection and it is fabulous! I am loving this whole idea of digi-paper. You get to make as much as you want, you don't have to worry about Michaels not being open at 11:00 pm when you ran out of the paper you were using! And it's GORGEOUS!

I colored these little girls with my new Prismacolor Markers. Be sure to visit Gabby's blog, she's got two awesome tutorials on there for how to color with these fabulous markers. They do take a bit of practice, but they are really cool!

Lastly, the ribbon slide... is that neat or what! It's a stamp! My friend Jessica sent this to me as part of a prize for doing so well with my card kits I sent for her swap. These are from DRS Designs and they have lots of these stamps that create these slides and they are so much fun.

OK do I sound like an info-mercial now.

NOTICE - Please do not leave your spam here.

I've deleted two comments that I know weren't from my readers, but someone being mean and horrible. The message was complete nonsense, it said nothing, but looked like huge bingo card. To whomever left that, please do not post here.

So sorry about that Mel. :( I had spam recently too (and not just the edible kind - lol!). Back to SCS - I love these fairies! They are so fun to color in and I love how you did two different ethnicities. ;) Love this sketch, it is so user friendly!
