Page Maps Make Your own stamp challenge

A fun challenge to get you thinking and using supplies you wouldn't ordinarily use.  For this challenge you had to make your own foam stamp. FUN!  You also have a choice between making a card or layout with the provided sketches. The prize is Doodlebug's sweet collection from Fruit Stand collection.  Line HERE to this challenge which ends May 26.

Here are the sketches:

I chose to do the card sketch for this challenge and once again I rotated the sketch.  I used my cuttlebug and cut out this Tim Holtz heart using foam. It cut nicely. :)

Then I chose some of my favorite Paint colors. 

The foam painted and stamped nicely. 

The heart is more the color in the above image. The big tag I used is a clothing tag
from my stash of recycled products.  Love re-using products instead of throwing
them in the garbage.  :)

Sparkle and Glitter challenge

May Freebie Contest at Sparkle and Glitter.  I love this image, perfect for a Mother's
Day card. :)  The image is free and you can win some free digi images.  :) Check out their blog
for all the details and requirements.  The contest closes May 24, still lots of time to check it
out and play along. :)  This months image is "Paris Hi Fashion Hat lady".  

Here is my card using the image. I wanted to keep it simple but
elegant so I went with a black and white theme for colors. I added a 
feather to the hat that covers the feather in the image.  I also added some
gems for her ear rings and stickles for the buttons on her collar and 
of course a ribbon bow. :) 
I used a copic liner pen to darken some of them lines on the image
to make it stand out more.

Mojo Monday card sketch challenge

Another fun Mojo Monday sketch. :)

Here is my take on the sketch.  The mushroom and fairy

cut them out, sitting the fairy on the little mushroom. :)
