"Under My Umbrella"-Inspired by a Song

Hey gang! Happy Friday-right now I'm on my way to the city with my class and the whole school to attend the yearly "Festival du Voyageur". We'll be outside all day doing traditional/cultural activities of the Fur-trader era! HéHo! At least there are warm-up tents if we get cold. Our first activity is snowshoeing-can't wait-haven't done that all year!

Okay- now on to more interesting stuff-this week's challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays is to make a creation inspired by a song. I used this super-cute Raindrop image and my original song inspiration was by the Eurythmics/Annie Lennox "Here Comes the Rain Again"-but I wasn't feeling it, cuz it's really about love and stuff, so my sister suggested Rhianna's "Under My Umbrella", which focuses on being a true friend to others when they're in a bind, which I have relied on lots these past few months and I hope I have returned the favor as well-plus this song is much more hip and current! LOL! I used Liquid Glass onrer umbrella to make it look wet and I colored her completely in Copics! Holy Moly! I'm entering the following challenges: Paper Shelter Challenge (Red), Sisterhood of Crafters (ribbon and brads), and Copic Creations (Use Warm colors).
Have a great day! xox, Trish :)

New Digi Release at PCS-Meet the Knome Family and an Annoucement!

Hey there! I'm very excited to announce Pink Cat Studio's newest digi release of these darling knomes. Melissa had gotten some suggestions from some customers, due to the huge popularity that the new movie Knomeo and Juliet is getting, and so, she created these super-cute images! Iused Lulibell with her furry animal friends and Finnbert. The sentiment on Finnbert's card is from Whimsy stamps.There's such a variety with this collection and they're so darn cute!

Also, there's a contest to enter-Melissa has created a new blinkie introducing this knome family, so if you load it on your side-bar, you can enter to win the whole collection of digis! Go to the blog to see more details!

Now onto my announcement: These were my last cards posted as a design team member for Pink Cat Studio. I'm starting to take some courses in the city twice a week, and I'll need to focus my attention on my studies, and making half-hearted cards isn't an option for me, and so I'm stepping down. Designing for Pink Cat Studio was a dream of mine and I realized it!

Thank you Melissa for granting me such a wonderful opportunity and thank you to the lovely ladies with whom I designed. I was very priviledged to work with such talented women! I will miss you, but will keep in touch!

I'm entering the Flutterby Wednesday challenge (include a fairy, butterfly or creature with wings), Digital Tuesday (use a punch), Crafty Creations (In the Garden), Forgotten Scraps (Spring or Flowers), Lil Red Wagon (Animals) Hope u like and God Bless! xox Trish

I'm entering the following challenges: Just Magnolia (Love You), Magnolia Down Under (Distressing), Incy Wincy Designs (Use punches or dies), Let's Ink It Up (No Digi-Romance/Valentines) Magnolia Stamp Lovers (use pastels) and Scrappy Frogs (Love).

Kennedy's 100th Day Creation!

Hey gang! No card today- but I wanted to share this creation that my daughter, Kennedy, made for their 100th day of school celebration, which was supposed to be held last Friday, but school was cancelled due to the icy snow storm we had. When I told them we had no school she said "Well now I have time to make something good- I was just bringing these!" She showed me a ziploc bag full of my grandma's vintage buttons!! NOT! I just about freaked!! So, this turned out to be a great idea-she even made one for our Prairie Fairy Roberta! She's Kennedy's idol! They were celebrating today and she's very proud of her wreath-she even added 100 little gemmies! Hope u like! xox Trish

A card and Tag Set!

Hey all! I'm a little late with my Saturday post, so please bear with me!! My dear friend, Roberta has been trying to fix my blog and has literally copied my pics, text, etc.. out of my posts, and re-entered them to a new post, but every new post reverts to this left and right stuff. Blogger help says I need to change the "a" at the beginning html stuff, but I'm not comprehending their lingo, so if anyone has tips, let me know! Thanks!!:) This week's challenge at DCD's Christmas Club is to make a card and matching tag set! I used this cute image from Pink Cat Studio-his name is Hootie Pie. Colored him up with prisma pencils. I also incorporated pre-made tags from Hallmark (split the snowflake one in half, which became the top of the tag) and recycled the sentiment from an old christmas card! I'll try to find some challenges, but there doesn't seem to be too many Christmas ones lately. Hope u like! xox Trish

Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair!

Happy Friday! Boy, was I glad to get home in one piece yesterday- I saw one car slide into the ditch yesterday on my way home from the city-they just skidded once sideways and ploof into the ditch! 5 minutes later, there was another car nose into the ditch and the tow truck must have been taking the driver home or to meet someone else, but I followed it the whole way home. Thankfully I was less than a half hour away, but talk about white knuckling my steering wheel! Now, onto a better topic-this cute rapunzel image from Pink Cat Studio. Melissa made a whole bunch of free sentiments that go well with the Fairytale theme, but I used my chipboard letters- I think I've found a new obsession-using chipboard! LOL. I'm entering the following challenges: Paper Crafting Journey (Anything Goes), Sassy Studio Designs (Use a Punch) I used my Martha Stewart edge punch, Hope u like! xox Trisha
