Oh look, it's a cupcake!

Hi Everyone,

This is sweet little Cupcake Trevor and he is offering me a cupcake!  Isn't that the sweetest thing?  Good thing it's paper, lol.  For my Friday inspiration post, I kept with the same these as the challenge.  It's an inspirational photo and a great big yummy cake.

Have you made your challenge card yet?  There are free stamps to win!!!   I do hope you will have some time to join in our challenge and fun.  I love to see what you are making. 

So again, this is Cupcake Trevor and I cut him out with my Spellbinder Ovals.  I used a new MFT die-namic called double dot border and Laura is ordering in the morning, so head on over to the Loves Rubberstamps store and pre-order yours now.  I can see a lot of possibilities with this die.  I also used Simple Stories Summer Fresh and I think Laura may have one or two of these left in the store as well...... I love this paper so much, I thought about buying another one to hoard away, lol.   But alas, there is so much cute paper out there, that I have to remind myself that I can let go and move forward. lol. 

This sketch is from MFT's Weekly Sketch Challenge from last year, MFTWSC27.

and now on to the winner of this stamp set........lucky #5 Shelby!!! 

congrat's to Shelby, email me at with your address and I will stick this in the mail on tuesday for you. 

Okay, so that is all from me today, hope you are having a fabulous Friday and have something great planned for this weekend!  Let me know what you are doing.

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.

Martha Stewart Cake Challenge

It's time for a new weekly challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  Doesn't this cake look yummy?  I so want to eat it, lol.  Do you have a favorite cake place in your town?  There is a shop called, Sweet Surrender, and I love their cupcakes and cookies....a little too much if you know what I mean? lol.   I've been on a new life style plan for about 6 weeks, have lost some weight and all I can think about are those fabulous cupcakes and how I am going to treat myself just as soon as I reach my first goal, lol.  Isn't that awful?  Sad but true.  I'm so obsessed I used cupcakes in this post, I will on the next post and the post  Just kidding, that is a coincidence.  Okay so on with my card.

I was inspired by the blue background with the pinking rickrack.  I used my MFT's pinking die-namic to cut the white edges and the red edges.  I am so excited that Laura has added die-namics to the store.  If you haven't ordered yet, please do so she can grab some more with each order.  I also used Vertical Greetings II, neither of these are in the store YET, but if you want them, make sure you email Laura and she will add them if she can.  I was also inspired by all those wonderful little flowers, so I used my WoodLand Park by October Afternoon dp and added a few extra flowers with the punches I had.  The image is CC design CupCake Emma, which is in the store, along with a lot of other cute CC designs and dies.  Go on over and check them out here.  I colored her with my copics and paper pieced her cupcake.  I love paper piecing, and hope to see that challenge back soon. 

So this is an inspiration photo picture, you can be inspired by anything you see and join in on the fun!  There is a chance to win some free stamps and who doesn't love that?  I know I do!!!  Speaking of free stamps, there is only a couple more days to get in on my blog candy, so if you love the set be sure to comment on that post, just click on the picture on the right hand side.

This sketch is from last years MFT's Sketch Challenges, MFTWSC8 

Okay that's all from me today, Thanks so much for Looking and your kind Comments.

Bookworm Ruby

This is what I came up with when I combined the Sparkle Creations color challenge with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.

Bookworm Ruby!  lol.  I know I have used this paper a couple times before, but I love the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 pad and when I looked at the colors, they were all on there, lol.  I used the last sketch of the four on the picture.  I added a few more Pearls.  I colored up some S.U. pearls with my copic marker R29 and the little dinkins would stick to my finger and so then I would have to press down again which left tiny smudges of red! lol.   Not big enough for a redo though, lol.  Sparkle has so much detail on each and every stamp she has and it's fun to color and try to challenge myself, lol.  The hair color again came from Shelby over at The Color of Happy.  She has some mad coloring skills, so check out her blog.

In a rush tonight to go spend a few minutes with my guys.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I also wanted to mention how well this would go with the current challenge going on over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge!  Have you played?  There's still a couple more days!

Thanks for looking and for your kind comments.


Teacher Knows Best - Inspiration Friday

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday!  TGIF!  For sure.  What are you doing this weekend?  Have you made a card or project for the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge?  Now is a perfect time to start, you still have a few more days to make it and get it uploaded to the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge, where you will in the running for a great prize.

To inspire you and also keep with this theme, I chose Miss Information by Kraftin' Kimmie.  I love the Kraftin Kimmie stamps.  They are so much fun to color and have such a deverse collection.  So you will see a lot of Kraftin' Kimmie on this blog.  Along with a multitude of other stamps that I buy from Loves Rubberstamps, lol. 

So again, I used Miss Information and colored her with my copics.  I drew in the lines with my Copic Multiliner pen and airbrushed in the chalkboard, wall, and flooring.  The sentiment comes with this cute image.  The other one that comes with it says, "You make the grade."  I wanted to have a nice card to give my son's teacher.  I used PTI yellow-orange and blue cardstock, report card from October Afternoon, (again - because it was sitting on my desk, lol) and added some twine and brads. 
Copic list: E0000, E000, E00, E37, E35, E33, E31,E30, E25, E21, C5, C6, C3, BG10, BG11, BG32, R29, R27, R24.

This sketch is from MFT's sketch challenge last year MFTWSC41.

I cannot wait to see your fabulous creations on the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.

Oh Boy!

Oh Boy!  It's the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge and this week is a sketch and I love those!  I got this cute little boy set called Snips and Snails from Loves Rubberstamps and went to town.  I love his little shoes. I used Die-namics from MFT's for the arrows.  I'm so excited that Laura from Loves Rubberstamps, has added more Die-namics and will continue to add more and more as time goes by.  Currently they are on pre-order so head on over and take a look at this fabulous collection.   I use die-namic dies on my cards, more than any other dies, I just love them.  The paper is, Note to self from Echo Park.  I have seen these dies and that paper used together before, but cannot remember which blog I saw them on, but I did love them together and wanted to try the combo myself. 

I wanted to thank Shelby from The Color of Happy, for sharing these great hair colors with me.  I'm always searching for new hair color combinations with the Copic Markers.  This combo is E35, YR23, Y23, Y21.  I also used: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E93, R29, R27, R24, R22, W0, W1, W4, W5, W6, W7, B000, B91, B95, B97, B99. 

Okay, that's all from me today.  I'm currently on a 10 day working stretch, so posts may slow down unless I think I don't need enough sleep, lol. 

Thanks for Looking and for your Kind comments.

Birthday Bash Blog Hop

It is Miss Christine’s Birthday and we decided to have a party! We are doing a blog hop just for her. You may start here at the All That Scraps blog. You don’t want to miss any of this party. :)

Happy Birthday Chritine, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Christiiiiiiiine, Happy Birthday to you!!!  How is that for blog singing?  lol.  Trust me, it's a better version than I can do vocally, lol.  Hope you are having a wonderful day today. 

Please visit all my fellow All That Scraps friends to share in the celebration! Next one on the hop is Deanne

The inside reads: "Let's Get Wild.....It's your Birthday"

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 165 and flipped the sketch for this card.  I also used a new image by My Favorite Things, while I do love Christine's adorable creations, I thought she might like to have something different for her birthday. 

Thanks for coming!

School Days Theme Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday!  It's time for another challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps!  Whooo Hooo.  I love new challenges and Laura puts up a great one each week.  Now I don't know how recently you have looked in the Loves Rubberstamps store, but Laura is constantly adding new companies and stamps.  So head on over and take a look at the store before you stop on over to check out the details of the challenge, on the challenge blog.

This weeks Challenge is, "School Days Theme."  That leaves a lot of room open to interpretation, so I really like the freedom.  I went through my stamps and had to narrow it down to my Greeting Farm Annika.  Isn't she cute?  If you don't see her in the store, be sure to send Laura an email and ask her when she can get this little cutie pie for you.  But if you are like me, you will see plenty of others calling your name, lol. 

I colored her with my copics, and drew in some lockers behind her.  I airbrushed the background and the flooring.  I cut her out using the out-of-the-box technique with my Spellbinder's Oval and then framed her with a Spellbinders Labels 11.  I used October Afternoon, Schoolhouse and Echo Park dots and stripes.  I added some MFT's photo corner die-namics and used the wonky scallop die-namic for the polka dot border.  I added some star brads from my stash and I was done. 
Copics used: Y11, Y17, Y18, Y19, Y21, YR23, N0, N3, N5, E31, E50, E0000, E000, E00, E21, E93, RV11, RV10, RV00. 

I used a sketch from MFT's sketch challenge last year: MFTWSC5.

I can't wait to see your creations with this Challenge!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments


P.S.  Since I've designed this card and had this blog post already scheduled, I need to add really quickly that Laura has a added MFT's dies to the store as a preorder!!!!!  Whooo Hoooo.  And if you do not see a die that you want, just email her and see if she can get it for you.  How cool is that?!  As she gets more and more orders, she will add more and more dies to the store.

This is my submission to the My Favorite Things Guest Design Spot for September.  Here is the sketch:

I paired this sketch with my new A La Mode 80's girl and some Basic Grey Clippings and this is what I came up with:

I think I might have been the only one at the release party that didn't know what, "word" meant, lol.  And I was so totally an 80's girl.  Dunno.  I am hard of hearing, so maybe that one escaped me, lol.  I love this daisy die-namic and will use it at any possible time I can.  I like that the flowers are flatter and you can send them in the mail easily and they make such a beautiful flower ever time.  I also used my retro square border, again, lol.  I cannot get enough of this one, I love it!  I also used my tabs quartet die-namic again.  These are the perfect sized little tabs for just a word or two.

I remember the 80's well.  I had a boom box and was playing my cassette tapes in style.  I had upgraded from my 8-track and felt very modern. lol.  30 years later, here I am with my I-pod and I can watch movies on it to boot!  Wow.  Technology has really come a long way.  I so would have been texting and on the phone all the time back then too if I could have, lol.  I had a few pairs of leg warmers and I wore them over my Jordache Jeans that I had to lay on the bed to get into and at times required assistance to get up, before I could go to school.  Is it no wonder I refuse to wear tight things now? lol.  My poor innards didn't like that very much. 

Stamps: MFT A La Mode - 80's girl
Paper - Basic Grey - Clippings
Card stock - S.U. brown and Kraft.
Die-namics - retro squares, daisy and tabs quartet
Copic colors - face and skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, E93 (sometimes I add some BV0000 but not this time)
hair - YR24, YR 23, YR21, YR20
Leg warmers and tunic - RV69, R59, R56
Bangle's - YR 27, YR 24
Boots, skirt and undershirt - E27, E25, E23
Boom Box - T6-T0
Ink - Memento black
Glue pen, paper piercer, brads (either JoAnnes or Michaels)

Thanks so much for Looking and for your kind Comments.


Loads of Love

Okay it's a wednesday stamp club that I have all week to make and upload, lol.   I do love MFT's weekly sketches and their stamps and dies.  I am so excited that Laura from Loves Rubberstamps is going to be carrying the stamps soon and already has a multitude of dies on pre-order.   Go check it out

Here is this weeks sketch:

Having spent most of my Sunday cleaning and doing laundry, I could so relate this little P.I. and I decided to use my new paper from Jillibean Soup, Grandma's Lima Bean Soup. 

This actually is more green than yellow, but my camera decides what it wants to do and there is no arguing with it sometimes, lol.   I used a multitude of die-namics on this card: new retro-squares border, Scallops, poesy flowers (I think), and a mini tabs from the quartet.  The little P.I. is called Loads of love.  I used SU blue and green card stock and SU pearls that I colored with my YG23 Copic marker.  I also ran my poesy through a S.U. lattice embossing folder to give it a bit of texture, love how that one came out. 

Copics Used:

E21, E00, E000, E0000, E93 - face and skin.
E02, E08, E17, E18 - hair
B99, B97, B95 - for the apron and shoes
YG25, YG23, YG21 - for the basket. 

I'm always looking for the perfect hair color combinations on everyone Else's blogs, so I thought I would list mine again, lol.  I got this hair combo from Irina at her LaLa Workshop.

Thanks for looking and your wonderful comments.

La La Land Workshop

Hi All,

I was lucky enough to attend one of Irina's La La Land Crafts workshops.  She actually came to Bakersfield to one of our local craft stores, Andies.  This is one of like 6 or 7 projects.  I cannot believe I just got the first one finished, lol.  The thing about the workshops is that there are amazing projects and lots of them.  I highly recommend you take pictures, ask a lot of questions and just get all your kits together, which means cutting out a lot of dies.   And don't even think about getting anything completed unless you are a super speedy crafter, which I am not.  I like to take my time with everything, make sure it's well put together and everything is balanced and looks right.  And it took an additional couple hours just to color up the images, lol.  I know, slow, but I do enjoy my time.  Irina had all the images ready for us, but I had to color one little thing on each of them before I could leave with them.  So bring your E0000, because there is no way you are going to color all these images in the last two hours, lol.  Especially if you are like me and just get these two colored in two hours, lol.

Irina does have a a flyer with a picture for reference and all the colors she used listed.  I tried her face colors and mine just came out too dark for my taste, so I did change those, otherwise I did stick to her colors.  Love her hair colors: E02, E08, E17, E18.  She also taught us how she colors the little roses on the dress - free hand.  And while hers are amazing, mine will pass for some nondescript design, lol.  I picked up one of these flourish leaf dies, we used them a lot and I could see myself using them on many different projects.  I resisted the fence die and then had feelings of remorse that I did not pick that up too, lol.  The roses are also one of her dies, as well as the butterfly.  The more intricate the die, the more you have to run it through your cutting machine to get it to cut out completely. 

This is Irina's trinket box design and she designed the top and bottom cut, so darn cute!  This is Tea Time Marcy and the Tea Set.  More of these to come as I get them finished up, lol.  I have been working on stuff this weekend for future posts. 

GOOD NEWS for Loves Rubberstamps Fans and Customer's, Laura is going to be adding La La Land to her on line store in the near future.  She continues to add things here and there, so keep looking!  If you see a company that carries something you like, but you do not see it in her store, just shoot her an email and ask, chances are she can order that right up for you. 

Okay, now I have to go and clean my house a little before getting started on my next project, lol.  I know, such a waste of time, but it HAS to be done now, lol.

Thanks for Looking and for your Wonderful comments.

Men In Black at Work - Friday inspiration post

It's my day to post an inspiration post for Loves Rubberstamps.  Oh boy do I love that on-line store, lol.  So many cute stamps in a one stop shop, makes me happy.  I picked up these Wild Rose Studio Men stamps, this one is called DIY Legend
I stayed with the theme of this weeks Photo Inspiration Challenge.  Have you made your card yet?

Remember, you don't just have to use Black, Yellow or Turquoise.  I just chose to.  And using a texture from the photo inspiration is a bonus. 

I used a sketch from Tuesday Morning:

It just seem to fit with my Man.  Hop on over to the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and read all about the Challenge and the PRIZE!!! 

For this card I used: Versamagic Midnight Black, DIY Legend by Wild Rose Studio, SU black and yellow cardstock, Brads from my stash.  I MFT's fishtail die-namic.  And the dp came from MME The Bright Side - One. 

Thanks for looking and for your kind Comments.

Sitting Pretty

Hi Friends and Family,

If you are family, you are wondering if I got a stamp made that looks like I did when I was little, lol.   Hair disheveled, dress all a mess and "Where are you shoes, Holly?"  I am not sure how many pairs of shoes I lost over my childhood, but I can tell you, quite a few.  My poor parents, I had to have the Buster Brown wide ones too, lol.  So expensive!  I would be thinking to myself, "I wonder if anyone will notice if I pop all these buttons off this chair?"  lol.  I was a mess.

This cute little Mimosa is called Mimosa bare feet.  I picked her up at Loves Rubberstamps Store and paper pierced her little dress, the chair (which will be in Laura's store soon-shhh it's a secret) and colored her with my copics.  I used October Afternoon Sidewalks, PTI blue, and SU brown.  I added some Elements Brads. 

I found this cute little sketch over at "Seems a little sketchy"  And I love that name, lol.  I did shorten the middle pattern though, it balanced the card a little better with my big images. 

A couple reminders.....

1. There is still plenty of time to play in Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week, AND there is a Guest Designer Team spot to win, read all about it at Loves Rubberstamps!

2.  Do you see that cute stamp set on my sidebar?  There is still time to enter, simply click on it and leave a comment and you will be in the drawing to win. 

Thanks for Looking and for you Kind Comments!!!

Challenge Tuesday - Men in Black

Hi Everyone,

It's another fun Challenge Tuesday over at Loves RubberStamps.  This week we are asked to look at a photo inspiration and we must use Black, Yellow, and Turquoise.  Bonus of using texture from the color inspiration photo.  So to start off with, here is your photo:

Upon looking at this very elegant and classy room, the first thing I thought of was my Wild Rose Studio For Men image called Celebrate in Style.  I was also taken by the chevrons for flooring.  Love that!  And I found a nice clean sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches:

Now I must mention that this sketch challenge is over, but what a fabulous sketch for my Man!  So here is the card I came up with:

Now I could have added other colors to the black, yellow and turquoise, but I just loved all these together.  My Cheveron paper came from Echo Parks - yours truely, my yellow polka dot paper came from MME on the bright side one.  I used SU card stock for the Turquoise and Yellow.  The brads were in my stash and I colored them from white to turquoise with my Copic Marker BG05.  Once again, this image is from Loves Rubberstamps, Wild Rose Studio - Celebrate in style.  I also want to mention I used VersaMagic Dewdrop in Midnight Black and am so thrilled to have found out how well this inks up negative images, thanks again to Karen at The Paper Playhouse.

I look forward to seeing your projects and what you come up with from this Color Challenge.

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.

Oh Snap!

Wow, I love the sketch this week at My Favorite Things.  I just bought this cute A La Mode called Picture Perfect and wanted to ink her up for this sketch.  I also was lucky enough to pick up the last 8X8 of Woodland Park by October Afternoon at the LSS.  Here is what I came up with.

I also cannot wait to tell you all that MFT's will be in the Loves Rubberstamps store SOON!  Yeah!  And even better news is that I will be on the Design Team for another term.  So exciting!!! 

The card base and card stock are from PTI.  LOVE the heavy paper and the wonderful colors.

On a Journey - Fridays Inspiration

Hello and Happy Friday!  This is my Inspiration Post for Loves Rubberstamps.  I am using the other half of my cute, OA - Journey set by The Greeting Farm.  Laura does not have these in her store but we are testing the waters to see how many of you want these adorable stamps added to the store.  All you have to do is email Laura and ask her to order you up some and she will let you know when to expect them. 

I'm also going to remind you of the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge!  It's Bingo, three in a row time.  For details, head on over to the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  I also want to remind you that you do not need a blog to enter.  You can upload from any on-line gallery source, such as Splitcoast Stampers.  And if you are uploading on an on-line gallery please use the keywords LRSBC12.   One lucky winner will win a store voucher!  Free Stamps!!!  Whoo Hoo!!!

So back to my card, lol, I used Oliver and Amelia - Journey from the Greeting Farms
I used a Sizzix embossing folder - brick wall
I used brads from my stash
I used a Cheery Lynn grass die and a MFT's dizzy doily duo Die-namic
I colored with my copics - didn't write them down but the pinks are R85, R83, R81 and the reds are R29, R27, R24. 

The sketch is SC395 from SplitcoastStampers.

Sun Shiny Day

Oh Sparkle is having a sketch challenge for her biweekly challenge.  That is so great!  I finally got to use my Bicycle Chloe. 

I love these Simple Stories papers called Summer Fresh.  Every time I look at it, I get a whole new mojo going, lol.  It's been a while since I have sponged around my image, but it just seemed to fit here.  I used Memento Tangelo, Cantaloupe, and New Sprout.  I colored the image with my copics.  I added a Double Scallop Border from MFT's, cut her out with Spellbinder circle dies, and added some brads.  The card stock is S.U.

It's going to be 108.0 here tomorrow, no bike riding for the sane, lol. 

Thanks for Looking and for your Kind comments.


Fabulous Dah-ling

Hi Everyone,

I picked up this adorable Kraftin Kimmie stamp called Lana over at Loves Rubberstamps recently.  There are a lot of new stamps available and Laura is adding to them all the time.  Love that I can get a variety of stamps in one place.  And paper!  And die-cuts!  Whoo Hoo. 

So poor Lana, I was more in a Liz Taylor frame of mind.  I was just thinking about the black hair and the violet eyes.  I used my Copic Markers to color and used BV01 and BV000 for her eyes, but in the photo they turned kinda grey, lol.  I also got a bit stickle happy here.  I rarely use stickles and I don't know why, I love sparkle and bling.  I also used some Rhinestones I had in my stash and colored those with my Copics, BV04.  I also just picked up some of this great MME Lavender.  I'm going to have to use this a few times, I love it, lol.  

This is the sketch I used.  I also used the out of the box technique, (her head with the oval Spellbinder Die), and framed with Spellbinders Labels 20.  I used my fishtail die-namic from MFT's.  This months Challenge over at Kraftin Kimmies is to use the out-of-the-box technique.  Which involves placing a die over the image for measuring, then finding the spot where you are going to go "out of the box" and cutting around that so that it's on the inside of the label.  There are better tutorials with pictures over on SplitCoastStampers.  But this is one of my favorite techniques.  lol. 

Thanks for Looking and for you kind Comments. 

Just a reminder, if you have not had a chance to play the challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog, there is still plenty of time.

Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge - Bingo!

This week over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog, we are playing Bingo.  Laura has a Bingo board all set up and all you have to do is complete one line that incorporates those elements on your card.  This messed with my head a little until I thought about it for a minute and I was like, "wait a second!  I do these things all the time."  And I whipped out one and got started on another, lol.  So don't over think it, it's all about having fun with your stamps. 

Speaking of fun.  Laura has recently added the Greeting Farms to her adding list of delicious stamp companies.  You will not find the cute Oliver and Amelia in her store yet, but if you email her with the stamps you want from the Greeting Farms, she can order those right up for you, (or let you know when they will be available.)  I loved that about her before I became a designer, she is so quick to get just want you want.  I also love that I can get some of these and some of those from a lot of different companies without having to order from each one and then pay separate shipping charges.  Loves Rubberstamps is a one-stop-shop. 

So here is my card for this challenge:

This is Oliver from the Oliver and Amelia set called Journey.  I used the Bingo Card as my guide and stuck with the right hand side.  I used: Brads from my stash, Seeing Spots embossing folder, and MFT's sun die-namic and Martha Stewart Grass punch.  The paper is from Echo Park, Hello Summer!  I colored him with my Copic Markers: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E93, B97, B95, B93, R29, R27, R24, E29, E27, E25.  The sketch I used is from MFT's weekly sketch challenge -last year, MFTWSC6.

I cannot wait to see your Challenge Cards this week!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.


P.S. as an even extra bonus, Laura is picking a September Guest Designer, see her blog for details.

Blog Candy - Admit One

Hello my Stampy Friends and Family,

I fell in LOVE with set not once, not twice, but three times.  The third time I was shopping over at Loves Rubberstamps.  When I saw this set again, I was thinking, "Oh I absolutely have to get this now, I've wanted it for so long."  And then something inside my brain made me stop and wonder if I had already purchased this Lawn Fawn set and I went to check.....sure enough, I've already got two! lol.  Does that ever happen to you?  Oh come now, I know I must not be the only one, lol.  So I was thinking in celebration of being chosen a Design Team member for Loves Rubberstamps, I would offer this set, Admit One, to one lucky commenter.  So just leave a comment on this post and I will put your name in the running to win this.  I will draw a lucky winner on August 31st and announce it with my Friday Inspiration blog post. 

And since I love it so much, I thought it was time to ink up my own set, lol.   I saw this wonderful sketch over on Karen's blog, The Sweetest Thing, Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 164.  And decided I would play along.

And here is what I came up with.

I colored the cute little ferris wheel with my copics: G20, Y8< Y6, Y4, RV13, RV11, RV10, N3, BG13, BG11, BG10, BG15, G46, G43, G40, RV32, RV25, RV21.  I also used my tag die from MFT's, some twine and bling.  The designer paper is Sidewalks from October Afternoon. 

Thanks for Looking and your kind Comments.
Good Luck to All.
