Cap'n EJ

I had the awesome opportunity to make a birthday card for my friend E.J. who turned 5 on Thursday.  He's is all about Pirates and Supermen and just being a great Super kid. So Happy Birthday E.J. Hope you were blessed beyond measure this year.

I used Mo's image called "Captain Hugh" and can be found here on her site. The background papers are all digital, the ribbon from my decreasing stack of SU Ribbon. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz ink and used a little Glossy Accent on his telescope. Of course colored it up with copics and will update with the recipe later on today. (I forgot it at home)

Happy Birthday Sara

Hey Today is Sara's Ament's Birthday Everyone. Sara was the co-founder of Paper Creations Ink and we are surprising her today with her very own blog hop, so follow along in the fun and enjoy all the creations just for Sara.

My card for Sara is from Sweetpea stamps called Moonlight Siren by Ching-Chou Kuik. This is one of my first tries with Sweetpea stamps and WOW, they are wonderfully intricate to color.  I used the following copics...

Skin:  E0000, 000, 01
Butterflies & Sun:  R35, 32, 30 & Y000, 00

Final Challenge #24 In The Garden

Well Ladies what better way to end our time with Paper Creations Ink but with images from our own Miranda Van Den Bosch. The winner from this challenge will win the three (3) digi's used in this Challenge.  So go to PCI's blog, check out the details and come join us.

It is with much sadness that we need to say goodbye to PCI as Sara and Michael worked so hard to birth this great adventure for all of us to take. I will be ever grateful to them for the opportunity to grow and learn from not only them but from all the wonderful ladies on our team. You all have gently pushed me to step outside my boundaries of comfort and try new and fantastic things. I have become a better person by knowing each and every one of you and I thank God for bringing all of you into my life. I know it's not goodbye forever, but just a temporary time to regroup, catch our breath's, figure out new strategies and then move on to better and bigger things.  So until then, take care everyone, love ya and I will be watching you to see what new and exciting things that you all are up to.

I have used for my card an earlier digi from Miranda and brought the two together as this fairy needed to be a wood nymph :0)  Everything is digi from the image to the background papers and all from my stash.  The sentiment I believe is an older SU set and the polka dot flowers were given to me by a friend.
