Stamp A Scene 2

Oh my... as a fairly new blogger, tonight I accidentally deleted all comments from 10-17 to 10-24. My apologies for those of you who posted a comment that is no longer visible. I promise never to try to organize things again! 

Another Stamp A Scene entry into the current Stamp Impressions Challenge. For this one, I used a die cut window, AI Annie ( front and back stamp set), plus sweet little butterfly images and sentiments from the Hero Arts Stamps& Cuts Butterfly. Used patterned paper for the wallpaper and cloudy sky. And, colored the Annie images with watercolors which I haven't done for a while. Was glad I could find my brushes! Did add a few highlights with my white gel pen, and black sharpie marker.  
Am also entering into a few other challenges, including A Blog Named Hero since I used the butterfly and two sentiments. (I wasn't sure if a butterfly is considered a critter. But, a few google sources said yes since critter means creation or living thing. So hope it is allowable!)

I love this new digi image from Bugaboo named "Puppy Love." I colored this puppy to look like one of our fur babies that we rescued from the shelter. Her name was Jinx. She crossed the rainbow bridge 12 years ago and we still miss her.

I am enthralled with the current challenge at AAA Stamps! Have had the most fun ever in creating cards that are inspired by a film. Since my sweet hubby and I love to watch movies and have quite a large DVD collection of favorites, I hardly know where to STOP in this challenge. This entry, which should be very easy to guess, even has glittery shoes!  The digi image is from Dearie Dolls ( and the inside sentiment is from TLC Creations (

My final card in this posting was developed for the current Bugaboo Bingo challenge. It features a Bugaboo image named "Thoughts and Prayers Candle" however, I turned it into an encouragement card by placing a Forever Friends tag over the sympathy sentiment. It meets the Bingo requirements from the top left diagonal: flower, players choice (bugaboo image), and ribbon. I also created it to fit into the Power Poppy Challenge (I made it a little under four inches square on black cardstock) plus the CAS-ual Fridays Think Pink and Calling All Sista's Photo Inspiration Color Challenge (which includes candles.) It's hard to see in the photo, but I added a circle of yellow acetate behind the candle flame to create a soft translucent halo.
