Sketch Saturday, Sisters and a Fairy

One of my favorite sketch challenges to participate in is Sketch Saturday. I went looking for a sketch for one of my images and imagine my surprise when I saw they were looking for some new design team members! They hold a very near and dear place in my heart because I was so honored to be their first Guest Designer! How exciting it would be be back there on a regular basis! Here's the sketch they put out:



Here's my sweet Bildmalarnas, that Summer at Roses on Paper is now carrying:



I love these new sweeties and can't quit coloring them up! This is Tosse Flower and I think this sweetie came out so adorable! I colored this cutie with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, added a bit of Stickles, Glossy Accents and some Kaisercraft Rhinestones and think this baby came out adorable! The paper is from the Lemonade collection from BasicGrey and the ribbon is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my card. I'd love the opportunity to work with the ever talented stampers at Sketch Saturday again!



"Sisters, sisters, there were never more devoted sisters..." Isn't this sweet stamp, Sister by Belles N' Whistles, just adorable? Me and my sister are so close, but back in the day we were more into picking on each other than the sweetness of this loving pair! This would be us now though! It's just amazing what you learn with time!

I colored these sweetie girls with copics and used GinaK Luxury paper. I had to use some stickles on their sweet tops and on the big sister's cap. I used some ribbon around the card and added some Prima Flowers with spacers and pearls and some Dew Drops in the corner.



I love Glossy Accents and added some to the ribbons in their gorgeous hair and around their cut tops. Aren't they just precious? And now for a bit from the fairy world!



These fairies from Mo's Digital Pencil are just too vivacious for words! I love the maturity and fullness of these these cuties! She is colored with copics and I added a lot of stickles to her and to the gorgeous Wisteria paper from BasicGrey.



Doesn't she just look like the happiest, most serene pixie? I just love the versitality of Mo's images and have a lot more to share with you!

It feels good to be back to posting on a more regular basis. I've missed sharing with all of you and thanks so much for hanging in there with me during this past summer. It means the world to me!
