Thinking of... Twinkling!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Well it is certainly going to be a busy week for me, but I am uber excited about it! Today and tomorrow I am doing sneak peeks for Pink Cat Studio with the release on Thursday and later in the week I will be showing some sneak peaks for SUINK with the release of some new stamps for both SUINK and Club Anya on the first! OMGoodness I am so excited!!

Personally it is going to be a busy week as well. I am actually babysitting this week. Yesterday I watched Izzy's friend Melaina all day and will be doing it again today. The girls had the absolute best, best, best time together! It was so, so, so much fun! They played outside, went and got all sorts of toys out, played in the play kitchen it was too cute. I have to tell you this story though. Izzy and Melaina were both kind of doing their own separate things, with Izzy in the play kitchen and Melaina going through the stack of books. Well somehow, Izzy started to play with the door in her house. Usually when this happens I say, "Knock, knock," so she will open the door and come out. So I did and Melania happened to be on the other side. Izzy saw her and said, "Hi!" OMGoodness they both burst out laughing. They must have done that routine for twenty minutes, each one of them giggling hysterically every time. I so wish I could have caught it on camera, but I was laughing to hard to get a good picture. So to make up for it, I have a picture of Miss Melaina hamming it up!

Well, today is Tuesday and you know what that means!!!! It is Twinkling Tuesday time!!! This week we are back to a sketch challenge! Yay!!! You know how I love me some sketches!! But since Madelynn is on vacation this week, she has graciously asked another "Temporary Twinkie" to fill in for her! This week our special guest is none other than my friend Cathy's 9-year-old daughter Brittany. She did such an amazing job this week!! I just love her sketch and can't wait to play it over and over again!

See what I mean! I know I say this every week but I am totally blown away by the talent of these young people! So, so exciting. Anywhoo, I started this card by coloring up this amazing Sugar Nellie image called Daisy that I received from my awesome friend Danni. I then cut it out along with some black and pink card stock using my nesties. Following the sketch I layered on green and black card stock along with some DP from Bo Bunny to create the background. For the ribbon across the top and bottom, I used two pieces of black satin ribbon and placed a strip of small teal ribbon down the middle. I added pink pearls to the four corners and tied on my sentiment. My sentiment was created by stamping "Thinking Of" from For a Friend by SU! on white card stock and mounting it on green. To complete the card I added faux stitching around my image and sentiment and popped them both off. A fun spring card.

Now check out the rest of the teams' creations! They are incredible!! And some more great news, please join me in welcoming Heather Lee-Reppen to the Twinkling team!

Maria said...

Melaina looks like she's begging you for something. . .either to stop taking photos of her or some cookie. She's a cutie!

Wow, such a cute image, Janna! I mean supa cute. I wanted to buy a whole bunch of those images but I need to relax. . .I buy too many stamps! I can't even get to working on half of them. Too many choices!

Your coloring is fantastic always and your cards are so fun to look at. You always do fantastic work!!

What an awesome sketch! Brittany did a wonderful job! Your card is breathtaking! I absolutely LOVE this image from Sugar Nellie - it's my FAVORITE! Your coloring is out of this world - I never do black hair because I am HORRIBLE with the black Copic and blue jeans are another struggle for me. I'm so going to save this picture for inspiration and guidance in coloring!!! Have I told you lately that you are AWESOME???? :o)
