 The challenge this week is sponsored by
PIP is offering a 
$10 Gift Certificate from 
Here is the Inspiration for the
5th Monday Challenge.

Here's my inspired card.😀
I used a variety of stamp companies to 
create this card. I can't remember 
all of them...bad memory. ugh!! Anyway,
I know the palm trees/frame/sun is from 
Gina K. The "water" is from Stampin'Up...
Flip flops...and die...and sentiment...
I'm drawing a blank.
This card is sort of self explanatory. 
I used Copic markers and MFT inks.
Guess that's it for now. Time for me to 
put on my flip flops and go outside!

PIP Challenge 2329

 A brand new challenge over at PIP Challenges.
This week's sponsor is SheepSki Designs
 Without our amazing sponsors the 
challenges wouldn't happen. 
SheepSki Designs is offering the 
random winner THREE DIGIS!!

Here's my card for this week!
This image from our amazing SheepSki Designs 
is "Butterfly Curl" and it's so pretty! I used
the PNG image and placed it on a digi
paper from We Are 3. The butterflies were 
colored with Copic markers and I used a 
sparkle pen to give them pizzazz. I colored
another butterfly and cut it out to raise it's
wings for some pretty dimension. The 
sentiment is from My Favorite Things. 

The image is so lovely and it certainly 
created a beautiful creation!

PIP Challenge 2328

 The challenge this week is sponsored by
The prize will be a 
$10 Gift Certificate from 
Here is my project for the challenge...
PIP is proud to sponsor this week's challenge.
Since the prize is a certificate from MFT I
decided to crack out my MFT stamps, and I have
bunches!! A dear friend of mine has a 
birthday this week so I came up with this idea
for her. Then I went to MFT and checked out
their challenges and decided to enter...

Both of those helped me create the card.
The images were colored with Copics and
I used my Scan n Cut to cut them out, plus
multiples for additional cards. I added some
sparkle pen to the butterflies and raised them
up with a bit of mounting tape for some
added dimension. I used the following sets.
Spread Your Wings (retired)
