So I'm bringing along some green grass and blue sky - as well as this little penquin guy with his gravity defying Easter Basket. I figured Abner would feel at home with this ice loving creature and wouldn't feel so nervous about all the new colors he was seeing!
My card is also for Fran's Doubledog Dare Challenge to us this week - to make a 1-2-3 card - I used one ribbon, two little gems, and three designer papers!
And finally - it's for the TCP Tuesday challenge to use The Cat's Pajama's springtime stamps on your card -

So I'm bringing this lovely chaise lounge to help decorate Belassiz's villa so hopefully Bodacious will win her hand. I added a soft comfy pillow and a matching teapot and cup to make it more versatile! (see the Teapot challenge for clarification of this sentence!)
The chaise is paper pieced and the wood part is colored with a copic. The teapot, cup and pillow are up on foam dimensionals.
Thanks for coming by today!

I used the colors for the color challenge to use celery green, teal and hunter green (the big button IS really hunter green but looks black in the pic!) - It was from my dear MIL's button box and has some decorative groves on the top half of it.
And I used the Grid Technique on the Bazzill card stock which was Charlene's (Lilluvsstampin) Doubledog Dare Challenge for us this week.
Going shopping makes me happy and that was Francie G's DDC challenge to us last week to make a card or project showing what makes you happy!
AND the Mudder's back (YAY!!) with her Tuesday Teapot challenge. We're all going to Dodge City to help Miss Kitty find a new man - I thought that she could use this pretty purse when she hits the streets for the nightlife - appropriately enough, the teal brad on the button is from the Urban Prairie set by Basic Grey!
I think Miss Kitty will put her little silver derringer in here in case she needs to ward off any unwelcome advances from certain gentlemen!! It will be cleverly concealed until she has need of it!
I found the tutorial for this cute top note purse here
Thanks for stopping by today!

You can find the tutorial for crayon resist in the resources over at Split Coast here
First I stamped this great skull image from the Stampin Up set called From the Crypt with black ink on glossy white paper -I let it dry (actually hot gunned it dry!) - then colored the skull with a white crayon. Next I sponged over the image using bravo burgandy and so saffron inks. I wiped the image with a paper towel and it stayed white where the crayon had been colored. I apparently missed a few areas on the skull with my crayon and it got colored burgandy - but I like how that came out!
The framings are cut with the Labels 3 Nestabilities and the background spider web is a Cuttlebug Folder.
You can find the Doubledog Dare Challenges in the Split Coast forum here or on my sidebar.
Inside my card I stamped this very fun witch and BOO! from the Waltzingmouse Stamp set called Halloween Party.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

1) The Color challenge on Split Coast this week was to pick a color of card stock then use bleach to stamp your chosen image - and use the resulting bleached color as your second color for your card,
2) the Tuesday Doubledog Dare Challenge from jdmommy was to have an out-of-the-box element on your card - in this case the flower is cut outside the 'circle'.
3) AND I finally got to do one of Mothermark's Tuesday Teapot challenges!!! Yippee!!!
My main color card stock is Stampin Up Vintage Violet and when I stamped this cute Stampendous image with bleach - I ended up with this lovely cream color. So my second color is PaperTrey Ink Vintage Cream . I embossed the violet panel with the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder. I thought it looked a little bit like a honeycomb.
These Bees are happy because they are on their way with the other swarms of bees to visit Uncle Beeford in Booneville, Mississippi - wouldn't you be happy too!?!?! You can check out what that's all about on Cindy's glob (as she calls it!).

And now onto my card -
I made this card for the sketch challenge on Split Coast this week as well as the DoubleDog Dare Challenge I do on Tuesdays with a group of SCS friends. Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) was the hostess this week and her challenge was to make a Mr. Do Bee card (from Romper Room fame for those of you old enough to remember that kids show!)- something teaching a child about manners - and to include a bee!
I love this Petite Cherub DP by Rusty Pickle - the little kids on it are so cute! I zig zag stitched around the edge and inked the edges with PTI Chai and Chamomile Dye inks. The key is Tim Holtz grunge board that I inked with Chai dye ink and Gold pigment ink.
You can join in on the DDC challenge just add DDC to the keyword when you post your card.
