Double trouble [wink]

So I've been playing again.  Had this image sitting 'round in my 'puter for quite awhile and got an idea I wanted to run with t'other day.  A slider card.  A DOUBLE slider card with "Hubby Birthday" appearing from the top and the "tasteful reveal" of bare legs and bottom lol.

So here she is.

I followed (well tried... it's a speed video.  Argh) this tutorial.

All supplies are current Stampin' Up product (cardstock, paper, balloon and bow punch...).

Butterflies are free to fly

I thought of the song right away.  I don't know why that is.  I'm not particularly musical but words or images will just pop into my head and lyrics from songs automatically "appear".  Just like butterflies when we need them.

You can never have too many butterflies and I just love this image.

Splish Splash...

Here's Puddle Jumping Angela.  How cute is this image?!  She'd be great for Easter, Spring Birthdays, maybe Baby or Wedding Showers?, for your sweetheart "you are my sunshine...", feel better/under a cloudy sky type cards, you'll be there rain or shine, coloured with a rainbow behind and a "shower of blessings"... so many possibilities with a little imagination.  I'm always trying to "morph" and use "one off" images for another reason/occasion.

Happy because the March release is now available at Angels Hearts and Memories (AHAM)!

I get to show you Springtime Suzette.  I saw her as more than just an Easter card.  So her Happy is for: Happy Easter or Happy Birthday or Happy Spring or Happy Mother's Day...

Wouldn't she just be absolutely perfect for all those occasions and more?!

You can get your own Springtime Suzette here or you could take advantage of the specially priced (it's a steal at $10 for all 4 images).

Gotta go now 'cause I just have to go play with the rest of the set so stay tuned.

It's Friday!

No it's not lol.  I'm posting on a Sunday.  BUT this image is by Simply B Stamps and titled It's Friday.

I couldn't resist her.  Then we got into a conversation in our FB Group about traditional and non-traditional colours.  I am very much a "traditionalist" in my go-to colours (and life lol).  But challenged myself to break outta the box and asked for some input on colours.

So, may I present my project.  Colours thrown out were green, turquoise, purple and someone wanted tie-dye.  Ya really.  So I had to accept that challenge lol.  I'll try for some wild red hair another time.  One wanted dip-dyed hair (I must admit, it was a choice I offered up but can only do so many "choices" on one image lol) so I quickly printed off 3 images (yes, I know the toe got cut off but it was only for doodling lol) and practiced.  But my final piece is the "carded up" one with green hair.
