WOW! How exciting is this? The cutest release ever just in time for summer. This image "At the Horse Show" is from the fabulous Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition #4 for SCACD.

You should have arrived here from the very talented and creative Carolyn's blog. If not, please go back to the beginning to the fabulousy creative Aud's blog. The Design Team and the Guests have created projects that are over the top.

Before I start describing my card, I would like everyone to know I appreciate the emails I have received since I have been absent for a couple of weeks. I have been taking care of my Mother and getting her health issues taken care of. She is hanging in there even though she still has alot of pain.

Now, to the card. It is pretty much self explainatory. I colored this image using my Prismas and Copics. The flowers were a lot of fun. I used some of the new VIVA DECOR from SCACD. Susana has in so many NEW PRODUCTS. She now has the Viva Pearl Pens and Paper Pens in numerous colors. There are several videos on the store site on the many different ways to use these pens. You must watch them - you will be totally amazed.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Flowers
Practical Scrappers - Buttons
Sophisticats - Make a Card for a Child
A Spoon Full of Sugar - 3D Something
Creative Card Crew - April Showers brings May Flowers
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Girly card with Flowers
Our Creative Corner - Blossoms and Flowers

I was trying to capture the sparkle on the flowers. They were sprayed with Tsukineko psst Sparkle Shimmer Spritz. This stuff is so easy to use and it only takes one spray. The Gold pearls in the center were done with the Viva Decor Gold Pen.

Now from here you will go to the super talented Jacquie's blog.

Thank you for stopping by and I will be back soon.

Hi Everyone!!

Isn't Little Anki the sweetest little thing ever? She has the sweetest looking face. This is one of the images from the Spring Collection by Victoria Case for SCACD.

The challenge for the DT this week was to emboss. It could be heat embossing, dry embossing or whatever embossing we wanted to do. The side border was embossed by running it through my Cuttlebug and then I inked it. I used the Floral Fantasy embossing folder. I used the new VIVA DECOR PAPER PEN on the hearts which give them a pearlescent 3D look, when it drys it looks like pearls. This is the most AMAZING PRODUCT. With this pen you can make your own pearls. If you go to SCACD there is a video showing the different ways these pens can be used. There are alot of colors. Susana has alot of new products in stock. Check out the new Primas, Zva Creative and all the other new goodies. Have you seen the new My Kraftin Kimmie Stamps?
They are so adorable. Susana now has them in stock, as well, she has added more "selected" styles of Spellbinders to the Specials Area.

Now on to the card. I colored Little Anki with Copics and added some stickes on her dress and shoes. The fantastic bow was made using the BOW EASY. Yellow and Pink are not two colors I would normally put together, but they actually look pretty good together.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Corrosive Challenge - Texture
Practical Scrappers - Glitter and Bling
Paperplay Challenge - Shiny Happy People
Raise the Bar Challenge - Let's Spring For It
Stampin For The Weekend - Ribbons and Bows

HI - TIOT Color Challenge

Good Morning,

I hope everyone had a blessed and wonderful Easter. YAY!!! Spring has arrived. Little Danni with Flutterby from the Spring Collection by Victoria Case for SCACD is a perfect image to celebrate Spring.

Our wonderful DT leader challenged the team to a color challenge using the colors - Violet, Yellow, Red, and Hot Pink. I also added a little green. Little Danni and Flutterby are colored with Copics. I used a little stickles on the flowers and on Flutterby for a little sparkle. The larger butterfly was made using my MS punches and then I added pink rhinestones. Check out Susana's stock of the new ZVA CREATIVE products. There are also pearls and flowers. While you are at the store checking out all the new products be sure and check out the new VIVA DECOR products. The yellow pearls in the corner of the card were made using the yellow paper pen. These pens are soooo cool.
