Gypsy - New Release

Today is New Release Day at Flowers, Feathers and Fairies.

Sabrina has created a beautiful Gypsy girl for us and you can find her on the Etsy store

I created my first journal page using the Gypsy. I was brave and tried a new skin color combo. Hope you like her as much as I do!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #415

Good Morning Friends,

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! I had a fabulous time with my hubby and the kids. We took them to the city and visited the science centre. So much to do there, we'll have to go again this winter to explore more of the exhibits.

Our sketch this week is...

Tuesday Morning Sketches is our sponsor this week.

And here's what I created.
I used quite a few older products from my stash on this card. The DSP is from Stampin Up, paper flowers are spritzed with biscotti Perfect Pearls Mists, the gems are random, added some silver foil tape from Close to my Heart. The top part is water color paper with Tim Holtz distress paint weathered wook and distress ink cracked pistachio, and Heidi Swapp Color Shine Tropicana Teal. 

Check out what the rest of the team created....

Tuesday Morning Sketches #414

Good Morning,

I just wanted to thank everyone who joined us for our birthday celebration in July. So many fabulous cards were entered!

This week we have another fantastic sketch. I struggled a bit this week (human error) My first card was a vertical card with a unicorn, sadly the photo I took didn't save properly and the card went to the birthday party before I realized. So back to the drawing table I went... and then I remembered I had received the One Day Fae this month from Faery Ink and it would be perfect for this sketch.

Our sponser this week is Pink and Main.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #413

Good Morning friends,

Today I have another Tuesday Morning Sketch to share with you #413.

And the theme this week.... Use your stamps!  Pretty easy, right?  But to be very clear, your focal image must be stamped.  No digital images or die cut focal images.

Our sponsor this week is My Sweet Petunia.  Yep!  One random winner will win the choice of an Original MISTI or Mini MISTI!

Everyone who linked by 8pm EST at the close of each challenge is eligible to win.  Because I couldn't get the link tool to merge week 1 with the remaining weeks, I will be renumbering everyone, but if you've participated all 4 weeks, your name is "in the hat" 4 times. 
I changed up the positioning of the oval and changed the ribbon to an embellishment of a sun burst.
The stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie called Beach Blanket Bingo! I stamped him with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored with various copics, used an oval and scallop oval die cuts. Teal cardstock from my scrap bin was cut and embossed with swirls, added the sunburst (cut out using my Cricut Explore) Added some twine and a real red button to finish this card off.

I would love to add this card into the following challenges.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge 306 - anything goes (Sunburst is cut using Just Because Cards, contouring used to remove the smiley face)
