~* My Besties Card *~

Aloha!
I'm sharing a card that I made with my new My Besties digi.  Isn't she adorable?  I colored her up with my Copic markers and added Stickles.  I used Colorbok textured cardstock and matted the designer paper from the K and Company Watercolor Bouquet paper pad.  I used a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts products including trellis rose, wild roses, fabric butterfly, heart beaded spray, open rose, cosmos daisy, baby rosebuds, seam binding that I tied in a bow, and flower lace.  I also used velvet flowers and paper/velvet rose from Petaloo.  There is a pretty bead and a heart earring that I took off the backing from.  The paper flowers are all covered with Stickles in Star Dust.
I'm entering this card into the following:
-My Besties UK Challenge Blog Challenge #25 - Anything Goes and Something Old Something New - I am entering in both.  This is anything goes and I am using "old" Wild Orchid Crafts flowers that I have had in my stash for awhile and am using a "new" digi image by Sherri Baldy that I have not used before.
-Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog Challenge #48 - Anything Goes + Option Vintage - Just participating in the anything goes portion
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha,

~* Quick and Simple Lotus Flower Cards using Derwent Watercolour Pencils *~

Aloha Friends!
Life has been really busy these days!  Just had a baby!  We are doing well :).
Wanted to share with you some cards that I started awhile ago and just finished up with Stickles recently.  They are thank you cards.  I wanted to make them simple, but sweet.  I used my Derwent Watercolour pencils to color in the stamped images.  The images were stamped on watercolor paper.  Thanks Ira for the info on the Derwent pencils!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day :)!!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)

~* XO gorjuss girl Card *~

Aloha!
Trying to keep my mind off some things right now...so I made a quick card.  I just used a bunch of goodies in my stash and wanted to play along with the August Challenge - Something Sweet! at Jamie's Facebook site, Scrappin Stampers.  The challenge is for her store: www.zibbet.com/not2shabbyshop
Here is my card using a gorjuss girl that I colored up with my Copic markers.  The cupcake is from the Melissa Frances Sweet Life collection.  I used Wild Orchid paper flowers and heart flourish and butterflies, Prima paper flowers, Hobby Lobby organza rose and bling, May Arts lace, Webster's Pages trim, a glassine bag with red chevron and an XOXO post-it.  
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day :)!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
