PPA 228

Don't forget your sunglasses!  This was an easy sketch for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  I chose one of my favorite stamp sets, Endless Wishes Birthday.  I used Blendabilities to color in the cake.  I pulled out the Sweet Sorbet dsp.  This is a BUSY pattern, but I love the colors (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight).  I thought the white cake panel would cut down on that.  I then decided it was too white and added the dots from the Endless Wishes set.  After stamping the sentiment,  I cut out a couple of stars with the Itty Bitty Punch pack and then I added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen.  You probably can't see the sparkle too well.  I do love these pens!  Anyway, thanks so much for your comments!  I hope I am back to crafting by the time this is posted.  I scheduled several out before I had surgery.

PPA 227

I love this color combo for the  Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge 227!   I used the stamp set from the October Paper Pumpkin.  Love the sayings in this little set!  The outside is hard to read from this angle but it says, "There's no such thing as too much pie."  The inside says "Holiday Calories Don't Count."  The little feathers are also from Paper Pumpkin.  I put the panel of Very Vanilla to cut down on the color, and then had to add Gorgeous Grunge with Early Espresso ink.  I just felt like it needed some brown in there.  Hope that's okay.  This will be my dad's Thanksgiving card.  Thanks for commenting!  (Sorry, coloring is way off here and I can't fix).

PPA 226

Back to regular crafty postings...
I made several cards prior to surgery and scheduled the blog posts.  Cannot wait to have use of my right arm so that I can play in my craft room again.  Unfortunately that'll be at least a couple of weeks.  PT eval is today and dr tomorrow for staple removal.

I love this mustache framelit!  It's an easy add on to an order because it's very inexpensive.  I love that you can use it for a regular card stock or dsp mustache, a stamped mustache (Well Worded Mustache)  and also with the Santa Stache stamp set (see products below).

I made this for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  I truly love doing the challenges on PPA because it makes me use colors and sketches I wouldn't normally use.  I ended up liking this color combo but I would never have picked it!  This will go to our friend in Maine for his birthday.  Thanks a bunch for leaving a comment!
