TTPH DT: Crafty Sentiments Inspiration

Hello Everyone!

Just showing a little card that I made for TTPH with a Crafty Sentiments digi called Tess Summer Fun

Thank you so much Crafty Sentiments for sponsoring our DT this week. 

This week we are working with an inspiration that you'll see as you scroll down. 

 I colored her with Copic markers, 
used a banner spellbinder's die and a die from My Creative Time. 

Down below is the inspiration photo. I tried to pick up some of the colors from the feathers.
Furthermore, on the inspiration is my lovely crafty friend BreAnn McFarland who was
diagnosed with a rare and serious illness called Pulmonary Hypertension as a child and
needed to have a lung transplant. The color Periwinkle is the official color of 
Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness but varying purples are often used.
The phrase "Just Breathe" is one of the sentiments I like to use for her cards or cards inspired by her.

Happy 5th Birthday Xzavier Luigi Style

Hello My Crafty Peeps!

Just coming in for a few minutes since I have house work to do... you all know how fun that is.

Well tomorrow is my son Xzavier's 5th birthday. He loves Luigi and he loves the color green. He is will be starting kindergarden soon and he is just so excited about everything. :D

I made him a card using:
  A Journey  rubber stamp set and Fairy Princess clear stamp set from The Greeting Farm

The step card is from the silhouette store, the grass is from My Creative Time  and the rest I created myself with the Silhouette D.E.

Here is my card:
As you can see this card was totally inspired by Mario Bros. Luigi character. LOL  
I colored my images with Copic markers. I didn't have any other little boy TGF stamps
with overalls so I kind of made them into overalls by drawing a line near the chest and coloring it blue. 
I created a little Green Toad by cutting a toadstool and cutting up a fairy. 

I know my son is going to love it! Well I'm hoping anyway. He has been counting down the days for his birthday to come... OMG all he does is count numbers all day and math problems all day. He drives me insane sometimes he has a thing for numbers but I still love him. 
Anyway, I hope you all liked my little birthday card too. :)

Thanks for stopping by,
