Unscripted Sketches. I used a new stamp from Whimsey Stamps Wee Stamps Collection Dandelion Girl. She is so sweet. I used Close to my Heart inks (sand, lilac mist and sweet leaf) to paint her with my waterbrush. I used CTMH Daydream papers and some Martha Stewart glitter and then I added FlowerSoft white to the dandelion seeds blowing away. The paper flowers were my actual first attempt to make them. I cut scalloped circles of the daydream papers, then cut them in a spiral and rolled them. I was pretty impressed with them for the first try!! The one I had to add some bling to, but I was still happy with them!

The last week has been filled with a little sadness and alot of allergies. Last Friday, my girls played their last game of fastpitch for their high school team. They started their season playing 2nd and 3rd bases, but due to the pitcher getting hurt, they moved Cis to pitching. Her first game of pitching, the catcher got hurt and so Catie became catcher for the rest of the season. Ali Edwards website on a share she had with Xyron. I got a 5"Creative Station, a sticker maker, a tape runner, a mega tape runner and a glue stick that has an edge for corners!!

Deconstructing Jen's sketch this week was a neat one. I used some stamps I have (Can't remember whose they are and there are no names on them) with CTMH Sweet Leaf, Garden Green and Sand Inks. The papers are from a set from CTMH and I used Cappuccino Bakers Twine from Ribbon Carousel.

Crazy 4 Challenges the challenge was to paper piece. I just got this stamp, Good Pony from Whimsey Stamps. I paper pieced her hat, kerchief, pocket, jeans, part of the saddle and the mane. I used CTMH More to Adore paper for the background, the star stickers are from a Debbie Mumm sticker set, and the Chocolate Bakers Twine from Ribbon Carousel. Yes, the boots are a crazy color, but they match the color of Cissy's cowboy boots and the pony is about the same color as Copper, Cis' horse!!
Unscripted Sketches challenge.

Moxie Fab World one of the challenges was Spectacular Spectacles. I knew I had some spectacles somewhere, so I found the three I had. The two cat eye ones were from Designs Ink'd and the round one is from Hearts IN Touch Collage It set. The sentiment is from CTMH Celebration set and I used three Black Jewel candy dots by Pebbles, Inc. Finished it off with some dot ribbon.
