You're a great catch!

I found more plaid paper so I could enter a second card into the plaid challenge on one of my groups.

This fun raccoon is from SugarPea Designs and the stamp set is called Great Catch. I used my Zig Clean Color markers to watercolor him. I think I'm getting a bit better with the watercolor but still have lots to learn. It sure is fun though!

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges~

Goodbye Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop!

It's never easy to say goodbye. Never. But today we are saying our goodbye to a favorite stamp store, Sweet Pea Stamps. I absolutely loved Sweet Pea Stamps for the huge variety of stamps and artists that Lynette, the owner, had. That brings us to Lynette herself...what a wonderful person! I had the pleasure of being on the design team for awhile and she is so giving and wonderful. I wish her nothing but the best in her future!

You can see more of my Sweet Pea Stamp creations~ HERE!

This hop is from a loyal group of Sweet Pea stamp fans who want to let Lynette know that we appreciate all her hard work bringing us the wonderful stamps in both rubber and digi format over the years.  Thanks so very much for all the wonderful images we have collected from you!

There are some random prizes along the way, as certain blog owners, myself included, have decided to include a prize, so please leave some comments along the way as you see everyone's gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamp creations.

Also, the store closes at the end of the day on the 25th, so if you see some wonderful stamps on this blog hop, today is the last day to get them, so please drop by the store!

For my card today I used a sweet digi by Conie Fong called Feeling Fabulous. Isn't she adorable? reminds me a bit of Cinderella.

You should have started the hop at the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog, if not, hop back there so you don't miss a thing. If you've been hopping along you should have arrived from Susan's blog! Next you should hop on to Denise's blog!

Happy hopping and have a wonderful day! And again, Lynette, I wish you nothing but happiness and smiles!

Autumn Marci

Normally I color my image and then find the papers I want to use but today I did the opposite and boy did it challenge me! One of the groups I'm in has a challenge this month to use plaid. Sounded easy enough until I tried to find plaid paper!! I found a few different styles of "plaid" so hopefully one will work for the challenge.

Once I found my paper then I picked out my stamp. Autumn Marci from La La Land Crafts (she is sadly retired) hasn't been inked up so I thought I needed to fix that! 

I'm entering this card into Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge~ Anything Goes.

My layout is based on an older Sweet Sunday Sketch~

Have a super smiley kind of day!! Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for always being there

Sometimes I just get so giddy when I color up stamps and make a card! I just love the process, love seeing it come together! This was one of those cards! I didn't know what direction to go when I started this but it just came together easily and I think it turned out so cute!

The cutie pie is from Whimsy Stamps, the Wee Stamps Collection and this is Dolly. The sentiment is also from a Whimsy set called Frame of Thanks. The die, Mini Picture Frame Die, is also from Whimsy.

I'm entering this into the following challenges~
