Mmmmm- Cupcakes!

The inspiration for this card came from "Cupcake Inspirations" (Go Figure- LOL!)  Cherries happened to be the focus of the cupcakes and I had just the stamp!  It's an oldie but a goodie in my collection from Lili of the Valley.  I haven't clored it in awhile, so I thought it might be fun to have another go with it!

I don't see this actual stamp on their site anymore (there are a bunch of other really cute mice stamps though!!!!) , but the sentiment stamp can be found here if you are interested.

The papers are all My Mind's Eye, but from two different packs- Stella Rose and Collectable.  Love, love, love them!!  The card was colored with Copic Markers and Glossy Accents was used on the frosting while red Peal Pen was used on the cherries.  Tim Holtz Distress Ink was used around the image and sentiment.

Here are the details on the Copics:
Mice E31,33,35
Frosting/ Cherries R21,22,24
Cupcake Wrappers BG13,15
Cherry Container Y21,28
Conveyor Belt W0,2,3,4

Bestie Bee

I know, I'm posting a bit, but like I said in my first post of the year, my MOJO was zero for 2014... Look out 2015!!  

This cute image is a Bestie digi- she's a cute little bee holding a basket of love.  I just sent this card out last week for a friend's birthday.  Sorry I'm not posting any specific info. about the card- I colored this eons ago before I started writing down Copic colors.  The papers are three different companies I know for sure- they are all from my scrap stash.  I do know that ribbon came on from Talbot's- yes the clothing store (I save ribbon that could potentially be used on a card).

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Two posts in the same month? Now that's UDDERLY amazing!  LOL!  Another Bugaboo digi for you today- can you tell I purchased a few over the holidays?!  I really love the images that I chose- they are super fun!

There are some different elements going on in this card...
 The image colored with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils: 
C5,6,7 (Black Pencil)
Glossy Accents were used on the stars and the mouth portion of the cow was printed a second time, colored, cut out and reattached to give it a 3D look.

 The base paper used on this was Echo Park Times and Seasons Collection
 (Love, love, love the colors in this pack- I should have bought two,
 but how much paper does one need?
The strip going across the middle and top and bottom are all scraps from my stash.

Red eyelets were used in two of the corners (honestly I can't remember the last time I used an eyelet on any project sooooo I'm kinda stoked!)
Twine was used to give the card a country feel.

My Mojo Returns in 2015

Life got a little crazy in 2014 and I had to take some time to step away from my blog to concentrate on things around here.  I pretty much lost my Mojo in 2014 and I'm looking forward to posting again and trying my hand at some new creations and contests.

I recently purchased this cute piggy from Bugaboo Stamps- there are some adorable images over there! This card is actually created for the troops and Operation Write Home.  If you don't know what that is, click on the link and check out how your card making can help our troops!!!

I started with a pretty simple design- in fact, I think the papers really made this card image pop!  I colored it up with my Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  

Here's what I used:
Pig- R20,21,22 Prismacolor Sienna Brown
Sign W0,1,2
Shirt: Well, how do you like that?  I forgot to write that down...hmmm...B something
