I just had to ink up this cutie from Bugaboo Stamps - Circle Sentiments - Pumpkin Season 
 Isn't he CUTE?  I think he is just as cute as it gets!  Plus I love everything pumpkin.  I made a frame using SugarPea Designs SugarCuts -  Zig Zag Stitched Circles.  The fun paper on my card base is Fun & Frolic Paper Pack from My Favorite Things.

Next, hop on over to see the watercolor and sentiment beauties on Amy's Blog.


I just could not resist playing with the SugarCuts Heart Beat die and fun little monkey 
from Caring Critters.  I used the die to cut from my patterned paper then cut from black cardstock to outline it.  So fun. I cut a matching little strip for the bottom.  I stamped the monkey and used the SugarCuts Caring Critters die to cut around him and popped him up on the front.  I chose this sweet sentiment from Kindness Matters and it fit just perfectly under the heart beat.

How could I not play with all of the Caring Critters?
I cut out the SugarCuts Polaroid Journal Card then stamped and masked my critters and colored them up.  I layered two of the Polaroid frames for a little dimension then added this beautiful sentiment (love the fonts) from Caring Hearts.  Behind my Polaroid I used a piece of the Countryside Charm patterned paper.

I just cannot stop playing with this new release.
I just had to ink up these envelopes in the Caring Hearts set.  I stamped them around the sentiment from the Kindness Matters set, colored them up then stamped a heart on each (I very carefully cut apart the two hearts so I could stamp them separately).

Coloring Outside The Lines - Let It Be

Power Poppy
I am playing in Power Poppy's Power & Sparklette Challenge 
 Marcy is challenging us to color up a Power Poppy image doing something different to us.  So I colored in the leaves simply (no blending) which is unusual for me and I really wanted to blend those colors, I did.  But I wanted to keep it CAS so I used a light color and then a darker along the lines in the leaf.  Then I went around the edge with a light blue and it was different for me because there is noguideline.  I felt a little anxious wanting to get it even.  So this was fun to let go and try something different from my go to coloring technique.  Plus I layered up a little with dies rather than my one layer creations. 

I chose to use the Power Poppy Freebie Digi
