Another Week has passed...

Which means it is Softpencil Studios Tuesday again. I really wish I could find more time to blog. I've been busy crafting so when I finally do get time I'll have lots to share.  School is almost over so that should give me a bit more time.  Only 7 more days - no 5 day weeks!! YAY!!!

This week I used the digi image Charmy and she certainly is charming!!

The paper is all from the Taylored Expression Key Ingredients Kit - July 2011. 

Be sure to stop by the other DT gals' blogs and check out their beautiful work. You'll find them all listed on my side bar!!

Remember Softpencil Studios now has stickers, rub ons digi images, and clear stamps!! So no matter how you like to create you can find it there.

I would also like to remind you that the Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge #21 - flower with a leaf is still open. You might want to jump over there and get entered. Next month we begin our monthly challenge.  

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges -
Crafty Boots - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Anything with Wings

I hope you have a fabulous rest of the week.

Blessings and Hugs,

Softpencil Studios Day!!

I always look forward to Tuesdays and being able to share my Softpencil Studios creations. Elizabeth's images are just plain cute and so much fun to work with each week.  

This week I used one of the fun stickers from the Cupcakes Collection. I just love all the fun cupcakes on this.  It is awesome to have such wonderful stickers to use when I'm in a hurry to make a card!!

Please be sure to stop by my fellow DT members blogs. They are SO TALENTED!! You aren't going to want to miss a creation. They are all listed on my sidebar.

New Challenge at Get Hippity with Ippity #21

Happy Monday all!! It's time for a new challenge at Get Hippity with Ippity!! This is challenge #21 and our last bimonthly challenge. In June we will be going to one challenge per month!! So you what is the challenge you ask?

The challenge this time is to use flowers and a leaf!! You can create any project that you want to do - card, ATC, LO.  You also don't have to use {ippity} or Unity stamps but your name goes in the drawing twice if you do. The prize is any set of your choice from Aletha's sales blog.  There are so many wonderful sets that my list is still long and I already own lots of them.

Here's my card - 

I used two of my favorite {ippity} sets. The first set is the Now and Always which HAS to be one of the most versatile sets I own!! 

The second set I used is the Friends + Flowers = Priceless. Yet another favorite!!

All of the papers came from Taylored Expressions May 2011 Key Ingredients Kit!! I am not exaggerating that you can make a TON of projects from each kit. The only extras I usually add is one set of the card stock.  I have been subscribing since February 2011 and have only finished 1 kit and even then had a few pieces parts that I added to my stash!!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges -
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! May your week be filled with many blessing!!

{ippity} sharing

Just stopping by quickly to share!! Hope your week is off to a great start!! I know Monday's can be tough but it puts me one step closer to summer and that's just fine with me.

I found some {ippity} cards I hadn't shared yet so I figured I would share one. I buy all my {ippity} goodies from Aletha and she can be found here

For the first one I used a set I bought a while ago and haven't had time to use - Faith BEGINS.

You can find it here -

Softpencil Tuesday Projects

Time is flying by which means it's time for some more Softpencil Studios Tuesday!!! Today we are still focusing on Mother's Day images and projects.  Remember here in the States, Mother's Day is this coming Sunday!!

Well let's get on with my projects. The image on this one is Michu and Ratiny in a heart.  I created this box using the Disc-Covered template from My Time Made Easy.  It's made to fit a DVD but you could fill it with chocolates or whatever you'd like.  The butterflies are a Stampin Up Punch. I just realized that I must have lost the butterfly from the upper right corner when bringing it home from my crop. :-(  I also purposely didn't put Happy Mother's Day on the project to make it a bit more versatile.

Since I was at a weekend long crop last week, I was also able to make a card as well. For this I used Michu's Mom!! Guess I misjudged the size of "Mother's Day" but what mom will complain about that? :-)

All of the papers are from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients February 2012 kit!! Just love those kits. They are like the energizer bunny and just keep going and going!!

I'd like to enter the project into the following challenges -

Finally, remember that Elizabeth now has stickers, rub ons, clear stamps along with her digi stamps available in her Softpencil Studios store.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! 
Blessings and Hugs,

Mother's Day is Coming

It's been busy around here and getting busier every week.  I have found time to craft the past 2 weekends but no time to post about my creations. I can't wait for summer break to arrive in a little over a month,  

Anyhow on with my Softpencil Studios Tuesday. Elizabeth recently released some images especially for Mother's Day and as always they are ADORABLE. I used 2 this week -

The first one is Ratiny's Mom. I bought this little cupcake box from the Silhoutte store.  Have I told you how much I LOVE my Cameo? I am planning on filling it with my Mom's favorite candies - M&M's and giving it to her on Mother's Day.

For this card which is also for my mom, I used Flowers for Mom.  

I hope you like the projects and will head on over to Softpencil Studios to check out all the wonderful products Elizabeth has for sale now - stickers, stamps and digi stamps, OH MY!!

As always, thanks for stopping by!! 

Blessings and Hugs!!
