Look what I won

Hey everyone. I am so excited I just had to share. So a great blog Tinker & Co. had a contest to name one of their new image characters. I saw the cute little Rooster and I felt he needed a good ole countryboy name so I suggested Hank and guess what. Jo loved my suggestion and named him that. Because she chose my name I won this fabulous kit.

Please everyone go check them out here You will love them as much as I do. She has some amazing images and papers. The May freebie is a great set of papers.

Mother's Day card

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had a fab weekend. We had my son's 3rd birthday party and wow was that entertaining.

Here is my card I managed to make in and this card fits 9 challenges. OMG thats alot. So here we go.

1. I used the sketch challenge at Inspirational Card Sketches to create this card. I felt it worked with the image and the papers I was planning on using. This sketch was great and I will definately be using it again

2. Nutshells , Kaboodle Doodles , and Whimsical Wednesday are all challenging us to make a spring themed card. Well I figured Mother's Day and flowers are pretty Springy.

3. Twisted Thursday #54 and The Pink Elephant is asking us to make a card for Mom. Well this card is actually going to be going to my Grandma and I hope she loves it.

4. Cute Card Thursday's challenge 110 was to "make your own". Well I made my own flower out of ribbon & a button. Its a little larger than i had anticipated but I still like the way it turned out.

5. Totally Gorjuss is challenging us to do stitching. I used a green glitter pen and faux stitched around all the pink bordering.

6. Anyone for Anya is asking for lots of layers. I think this fits that from the semi-circles to the image and the sentiment and dont forget the flower. There are quite a few layers without going overboard and making it look to busy.

Card Details:
Image - Miss Anya Love - the Greeting Farm
Coloring - Bic Mark-its, Copics, and Stardust Glitter pens
Paper - Core'dinations Cardstock and Making Memories DP
Accessories: vintage button, ribbon from Target's $1 bin, and Pop Dots.
