Friends are good

Welcome back to another post featuring Polka Dot Pals Fern and Polka Dot Pals Faces. This was one of the images I colored Live on Facebook and I’m here to show off the final result. I created the card using a bunch of different dies but also the Party Animal Balloons to bring the color out from the center. Those balloons really love to party!!

Polka Dot Pals Fern is now available as a pre-order! Orders will be shipping early next week.

Enjoying the flowers

I’m pulling out some oldies but goodies to create this card and I want to focus on two of my favorites … the first is the Polka Dot Pals Faces which can be used on any of the Polka Dot Pals plus anything else you want to add a face too. LOL The second are the Flower Tiles which I have really enjoyed using on their own or as accessories to other stamps.

Polka Dot Pals Fern is now available as a pre-order! Orders will be shipping early next week.

You’ve seen this gal all week if you joined in on the Live Facebook coloring sessions and I’m excited to show you the cards I made out of them. I had loads of freebies available and now I’m going it again this week. This week will be a new time (8:30pm Central) and a new location (Sproatmeyer Colors on Facebook). Thank you everyone who did and will participate – good luck and many blessings. 😀

Shout hello

This Hello Word and Shadow die set is one of my favorites and it’s so fun to color! I like to color each letter and decorate it a little different then pop some of them up with foam tape. It adds so much to the card and helps feature the image too. This is Polka Dot Pals Fern (is now available here!) and she’ll be an exclusive here on my blog but for now you this card features the Polka Dot Pals Faces that I’ve used. You can use these faces on all the Polka Dot Pals so if it isn’t in your collection then I think you should add it to your cart. I colored this gal Live on Facebook a little while back. Which reminds me, we have some winners to announce! Stay tuned for another post later today…

Ready for school?

Ready or not, here it is! Two of my kids have already started school and the third is set to start on Monday. So we have to say goodbye to our lazy summer days and get back into a more rigid schedule. However, perhaps the more relevant question is are you ready for Halloween? Whimsy Stamps kicks off their Halloween celebrations with their mini release starting tomorrow and I have an adorable card to show off. If you’re not already, be sure to subscribe on the sidebar to get notifications of new posts delivered right to your email box.

The elements on this project were from my Live coloring yesterday on Facebook. I’ll be doing more Live coloring so be sure to follow my page to get notification of when I start.

Enjoy the little moments

This is Polka Dot Pals Eileen and even though she lives in the city, she’s found a nice quiet park to read her book. This set and the other school-themed set, Polka Dot Pals Delia, are both on sale right now. These are some of my favorite sets and I enjoy using them for more than just school days. I used the same color scheme (mostly) as yesterdays card. I colored this gal live of Facebook so after adding these cuties to your shopping card, be sure to come on over and watch.

Back to school

Are you ready for the kids to get back to school? Maybe you’re looking forward to quieter streets during the day or less chaos in the living room. Personally I love summer and having my kids around so back to school is a mixed bag for me. But this card isn’t! I had fun creating it using Polka Dot Pals Delia and a few (ha ha more like many) metal dies to create this scene. (She’s currently on sale too so don’t miss out on this adorable gal.)
