 It's my day to post on the Art Impressions blog!  I am using one of the Ai Girlfriends sets today: Picture Perfect Set (Sku #4130).  I did a little paper piecing, and made a die cut frame for one of the three sentiments that comes with the set:

I am posting on the Art Impressions blog today.
It was my husband's birthday a few days ago, so I made a fun Shake Your Booty card for him using the Bummer Set (Sku#4241)
While I was at it... I made a spare:

Java Love Challenge

We have a fun new challenge starting on the Art Impressions blog today: Java Love!  We want to see your coffee themed creations, either a stamp set, a great coffee quote or you can even use coffee colours.  I've used the fun Girlfriends set: Girlfriend Blend (Sku#4132)
You don't have to use Art Impressions stamps to participate in the challenge, however the design team came up with a list of over 20 Ai stamps that would work - so dig into your stash and see what you can come up with!  Be creative!  There are always wonderful prizes to be won, so we hope you'll play along.

Gutter-ly Incredi-bowl!

I am posting on the Art Impressions blog today.
I have two cards to share, using one of the Ai People sets: Incredibowl Set (Sku#4530).  They're both pretty similar, I just tweaked the designs a little, and tried two different skin tones:

Freshly Made Sketches #168

A very quick card today (yay!) - mainly due to the fact that I had coloured this image up several months ago, and just never got it made up into a Christmas card.  So when I saw the current Freshly Made Sketch, I knew I'd probably have something ready to go that would work.  Since I coloured it up with these papers in mind, all I had to do was grab them, add a little die cut, and we're done.  I love this layout, either straight up like the sketch, or tipped over like I've done - so I'll probably pull it out in the future:
Patterned papers are Merry & Bright, Carta Bella; Stamp is Jolly Snowman Set (Sku#4315), Art Impressions; Ink is Tuxedo Black, Memento; Copic Markers; Joy Script Die, Memory Box.
