Sweet Shop Sketch Challenge

Hi :)

I have a new card for you today.  Lately everything has been so stressful.  Lots of stuff going on in my personal life and I feel like I haven't been crafting unless it is cause I have to.  I finally have made something because I was inspired.

I found a new challenge sketch blog call The Sweet Shop Sketch blog. At first the sketch was a little intimidating but then it all clicked.  So here was the sketch....

 And here is my project.  I really like how it turned out. The dragonfly is a stamp I picked up last year and colored it with prismacolors.  I added liquid pearls to the wings. I went around the edges of the dragonfly with stickles. I took prismacolors and colored around the edges and blended it for some color around the edge.  The eyelets are from Eye-lets Etc. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs set Winged Things.
 I am also going to enter this in the Simon says stamp challenge anything goes

I also want to tell my winners from my 100 follower giveaway I am sooo sorry.  I am still packing up your items.  I have started all of them, but I can't decide what to give you all. Plus with everything going on it has been so hectic.  I am so sorry and I promise to get everything sent out this week and I will throw a little extra in with everything because it is late.

Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge.

Good Morning or Afternoon,
Depending on where you are.  So I guess evening too :)

This week for the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge we were challenged to make a Pirate or Fish Themed card. To me that equals Mermaid :)  i am also going to enter this at CAS-ual Fridays which challenged us to use a pun.
The mermaid is by Zenware Designs and you can get it at MyGrafico  The paper is from a pad I got a few years ago.  I colored the mermaid using Prismacolor Premier pencils. The eye-lets are from Eye-lets Etc.  Notice the fish ones. I love them!!  The cool thing it looks like a tag but it is a card.  I added some liquid pearls and a sentiment from K Andrew Designs  It is from Splashtastic Summer.
