PWCO Super Saturday!

Happy Saturday, everyone!

It's a three-fer here today, so enjoy!

#1:  Birthday Parade:

Image coloured with Copics - Glossy Accents & Stickles on balloons; Stickles on confetti!  Thought about adding *something* else to the card...but was having a brain fart & nothing was cooperating... so, it is what it is!
Supplies Used:
PWCO/RAM:  Birthday Parade
Echo Park Paper - A Walk in the Park:  'Blissful Days Border Sheet'
Copic Markers
Glossy Accents
Stickles - Stardust

#2 - Have a Hoot on your Birthday!

The owl & tree are pieced and popped up on dimensional adhesive.  The sentiment strip is PTI's Double-Ended Banner Die, with a sentiment from Wise Owls (which continues on to the interior of the card).  A bit of Smooch Accent Ink on the edges of the banner for some definition... and a touch of orange Copic to the beak & toes of the little owl!

Supplies Used:
PWCO/RAM:  Happy Owl-o-ween
Echo Park Paper - Life is Good:  'Floral Dress'
Echo Park Paper - A Walk in the Park:  'Pathway'
Echo Park Paper - A Walk in the Park:  'Treetops'
Smooch:  Molasses

#3 - Today is a Gift!

Image coloured with Copics; Smooch on girl's shoes & bracelet - Glossy Accents & Stickles on bouquet.

Supplies Used:
PWCO/RAM:  My Valentine
Echo Park Paper - Life is Good:  'Happy Border Sheet'
Smooch: Molasses

Glossy Accents
Stickles - Stardust
It took forever to colour/piece these three images, so I really wanted them to be the main focus of the cards... Love Echo Park Paper's Border sheets - they make quick work of backgrounds!!
Thanks for stopping in!

Dreaming with Gauche Alchemy...

Hello, friends!

Created this for Gauche Alchemy today... It's a mixed media canvas, all spurred by the little red butterly from the Scarlet Fever Mixed Media Colour Kit!

Lots of goodies on there - various colour kits, ouchless cardboard (which is available in white now, too!), some wallpaper, and cupcake liners! (LOVE cupcake liners.... love.)

Make sure to pop over to the GA Blog & leave some of your love, too - each and every month, I pick a random commenter from that month's comments to win a GA Prize Package!  (The more comments you leave, the better the odds are you'll win!)

Versatile Blogger Award!

Hey y'all!

Just wanted to pop in & share this Versatile Blogger Award that I was given by Michelle. (Look, she picked me as #1 - I'm giddy with excitement over that!!  Thanks for the ego boost, Michelle - I was needing that right about now!!)

So, I guess the rules are:
1) Thank the blogger that awarded you.  (Check!)
2) List 7 things about yourself:
     a) My hair has been dyed just about every colour you could imagine - but my favourite was black with hot pink streaks.  (The pink was a real pain in the butt to maintain, though!)
      b) I have one tattoo - a pink star with a black outline.  I want more, but just haven't gotten around to it.
      c) I hate caramel, fruit, or anything else messing with my chocolate - and the darker the chocolate, the better!
      d) I have no will-power when it comes to sour candies.  I'm on a never-ending quest to find a sour candy that's the right amount of sour!  (So basically, if I walk past a package that says 'sour', I HAVE to buy it to try the contents!)
      e) When I was a kid, the only pet I ever asked for was a pot-bellied pig.  (And to this day, I've never had a pet! LOL)
       f) I've always loved big trucks.  If I ever won a ridiculously large sum of money, the first 'toy' I'd buy would be something huge & jacked up!
       g) The other 'frivolous' thing I'd do if I had a tonne of money would be to turn Sherrilyn Kenyon's 'Dark Hunter' series into a TV show.  (Wouldn't that be fun?!)

And finally, the third rule is to pass this award on to 15 other bloggers, but... I'm feeling generous.  I'd like to pass this award on to all of my followers, because you're all so awesome!

Thanks again, Michelle!
