Twinkling Tuesday Time with a Twist - Literally a Twist of Citrus that is!!!

A Tasty Bit of Fruit for You!!!!
O.K. so Janna and Jess if they make it out to my blog will recognize this card, but everyone else who sees it will probably see something new!!!!
.......
Our challenge this week for sweet 9 year old Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday's was this picture below.
.......
Well my Hubby has worked about 6 million hours the last few weeks and I just ran out of time to make a new card for these images, but I had posted this card I am showing you today back in the Beginning of January for Richard's Birthday and Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I made this card for the challenge before I was on the Twinkling Tuesday DT though so I thought maybe I could get away with showing it again!!!!
.......
Believe me I had this idea for this amazing Citrus Card and I really wanted to try my idea out on paper to see if I could make it work, but there was just not enough time. I had my monthly Stampin Up Stampers Club this weekend and spent my weekend crafty time Designing and making the 3 projects for that which by the way will be posted on Thursday this week. We made a 4th of July 3-D Purse, and a 4th of July Card, and a Summer Water Melon themed card as well.
.......
Saturday was Tuckers Birthday June 27th. My Baby is 2 years old!!!! How did that Happen????
We had a good weekend how about you??? I threw together very quickly a last minute Birthday Party for Tucker very small but fun I think, and then on Sunday I had Stampers Club but as Hubby was once again at work doing his Wheat Harvest Duties then I had the neighbor boy Henry come over and Baby Sit the kiddo's. As we rarely rarely have a Baby sitter come I think this is the first time I have left Tucker with a sitter other then before he was a year old and I still worked some and he went to Day Care 2 days a week.
.......
So anyway on to my Twinkling post. Below are the links to my lovely team mates and I hope you find time to stop by and see their lovely creations as well!!!!
.......
The "Twinkle Team"
.......
.......
.......
So here is my Card it is using the SU! Set Tart and Tangy and SU Card Stocks in Green Galore, Real Red, Only Orange and Yo Yo Yellow.
.......

I used the Cuttle Bug Folder Spots and Dots (I think????) to emboss the background of the card, and I distressed the edges of the layers using my trusty Kitchen Knife!!! LOL!!!!

.......

The layers going across the card are not ribbon??? What are they you ask??? They are actually Glitter. Bright and pretty, and sparkly Yellow and Orange Glitter. In person they sure do sparkle though!!!!!

Above are the 3 Fruit images I made Stamped using SU Markers.
Here is my Sentiment for the card. I used my SU Markers inked up the image and then hand wrote my Sentiment as well. I hope you enjoy the card this one was a fun one to make!!!!
.......
Well I am off I have a Hair appointment this afternoon for Tucker and Myself not sure how that is going to go taking 3 kids with me to the Hair Salon while I sit in the Chair for an hour and half or 2 hours!!! Can not be helped though as we have no family in town to help with the kiddo's and Hubby is busy in Harvest!!! Last time it worked well, but I went and did my appointment and then Marvin came as my appointment was ending and brought Tucker so we could get his hair trimmed then!!! LOL!!!!
.......
Ah the Crazy things we do as Mommy's right??? LOL!!!!!
.......
Have a Stampendous Tuesday and see you tomorrow for Flutter By Wednesday, then Thursday to share my 4th of July and Summer Stampers Club Projects, and then Friday is Featured Friday for the Character Cafe Team, and Saturday is Etsy Inspired Saturday!!!! Busy Week again this week!!! LOL!!!!

Etsy Inspired Challenge DT Sample - Last day to participate in Make a Wish Foundation and win a $20 plus prize from me.

Etsy Inspired Photo Prints
Happy Saturday everyone!!!!!
.......
Well good morning and Welcome to Etsy Inspired Saturdays here on my Blog!!!
.......
This weeks Etsy Shop has many different photographed prints to choose from for inspiration!!!
.......
Once you are done here remember to go check out my wonderful team mates totally creative creations too!!!!
.......
.......
The Etsy Inspired Design Team:
.......
.......
So this weeks shop was Tony Carlisle's Photo Gallery He has some great prints to sell. The winner of this weeks Etsy Challenge will win their choice of any of his 8 x 10 prints of their choice so if you have not played in a while this would be a great week to play again???
.......
If you are new and wonder how to play in the Etsy Challenge all you have to do is go to the shop pick out a inspiration piece or two, then make some kind of Card Scrap Book Page, or project and then link it up to Ashley's Blog by Friday at Noon PST. Kerry and De will pick a winner at the end of the week and that person can pick out their very own print from this weeks Etsy Shop.
So Here is my card for this week. When I saw this shop it immediately made me think of a Card I made for Flutter By Wednesday several months ago. So I got out the same stamps and made a card pretty similar to that card with some tweaks here and there.
.......
I can not tell you where the Butter Fly images came from as Danni from Danni's dreams sent me both stamps the Card Stocks are SU Only Orange and Yo Yo Yellow and Summer Sun.
The Butter Fly in the Background is from SU Flight of the Butterfly stamped up in Versa Mark Dazzle ink. I colored my image using my Copics the Butterfly is stamped in Memento ink, and I used my Scallop Square Nesties on the Whisper White and Only Orange layers.
.......
Today is the last day to participate in the Pink Cat Studio Fundraiser for Make a Wish Foundation in 4 year old Ethan Weimans honor and still be entered into the drawing her on my blog to win the FREE Pink Cat Studio set of your choice.

A Fluttering By Farm - in Honor of Ethan Weiman - Let's raise Money for Make a Wish Foundation!!!!

Fluttering for Ethan
Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
.......
If you have been to my blog in the last few days you know that I am giving away a $20 plus prize at the end of the week to one lucky person who participates in the Make a Wish Foundation Fundraiser in Honor of Ethan Weiman.
.......
Ethan was a 4 year old little boy who lost his 2 year battle with cancer on June 12th. Many of you in Stamp land may know of Ethan's Stamping Mommy Alicia Weiman who is also on Lauren Meaders Stamping DT. Alicia and I met several months ago and had several great e-mail chats. I had been following their story for almost a year by then through her blog. I just have a special place in my heart for Alicia and Ethan and their family that when I found out Melissa over at Pink Cat Studio was having a fundraiser to raise money for The Make a Wish Foundation over at Pink Cat Studio I just could not - not join in.
.......
I contacted Melissa and I am going to be putting every ones names in a drawing who go to Pink Cat Studio and purchase the Digi images that all proceeds go to the Make a Wish Foundation, and then post on their blog about the fundraiser to help us raise more money for this great organization, in Ethan's Honor!!! I will also be giving away a Bonus prize to another lucky person who does the above and makes a card using the images and post again about the Fundraiser by Saturday March 28th. Read more about how you can win these prizes and how to help with the fundraiser in my 2 posts about the Fundraiser down below today's posts!!!
.......
This week our Featured Member is Kimmie. The new Featured Member challenge we have is that member will be the one to issue each new weeks challenge. So our challenge this week that Kimmie issued to us and to you to you, if you choose to play along with us was to use a Outdoorsy theme on our cards. Remember if you participate with us go to Danni's Blog and Link up your creation in Mr. Linky and upload with Key words FBW!!!
.......
Now I had a totally different idea on what I wanted to do before this fundraiser came about, but once I saw the images over at Pink Cat studio I knew they would have to be for my Outdoorsy Flutter By Card!!!! These great images are only $6 for Cowboy Ethan, Cowgirl Ava, and 2 great sentiments!!! or for $4 you can pick up either Cowboy Ethan or Cowgirl Ava and the sentiments go with either one too!!!! All proceeds minus only the pay-pal fee and the shopping cart minimal charge go to Make a Wish in Ethan's name!!!!
.......
Please when you are done stop by and visit my TOTALLY Talented Team Mates creations and tell them I sent you cause I would love to let them know how much I love all their work even though I am soooooooooooo behind on letting them know through my comments on their amazing work!!!!

.......
Above we have Cowboy Ethan, and Cow Girl Ava printed off using Micro Soft Word onto Whisper White SU card stock. I colored them with my copics and the Barn is Also a Stamped Pink Cat Studio image as well.
The Card back is on SU Bashful Blue Card Stock and then I made the clouds using SU Whisper White Craft Ink, and a Baby Wipe to swipe the white and make the clouds!!!
.......
I took SU Card Stocks in Chocolate Chip, Close To Co Coa, and Garden Green to make the torn and layer grass and dirt. Each layer is popped up using SU stampin deminsionals. Ava and Ethan are popped up even further using excess foam and rubber from my stamps.
.......
The Flutter By's are SU Flight of the Butterfly Stamp colored up in Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Pretty in Pink, and Pixie Pink and stamped and cut out.
.......

Well we are off this morning to head out to the Summer Movie Series with my good friend Emily and her son and niece and Nephew then we are heading off to the Pool we belong to and eating a pick nick lunch there and swimming for a while before it is time to head back home for Nap time.

Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Challenge Blog

.......

So Here is my Card for Twinkling Tuesday, and Digi Delights first DT Release. The Image I used is Ridley Flying High. I also used a sentiment from the Releases set for tomorrow, but I only used part of the Sentiment. It is actually framed in a cute boarder that I cut down to use just the star and actual words in the Sentiment.

I took my Real Red SU Card Stock for the Card back, then I took some Whisper White SU Card Stock and tore it into strips to make the stripes on the Flag. Then I took some SU Card Stock in Night of Navy for the blue part of the flag. Last I took my SU small star punch and made the stars for the Flag!!!!!

I colored Ridley up with my Copics. The above picture is with no flash so if it looks dark that is why. I used B91, B95, and B99 for the Wings, I used R20, R29, and R35 for the red, and I used C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, and Black 100 for Ridley and the rest of the Plain. I also used Y11, Y13, and Y38 for the yellows.

.......

I added SU Rhinestone brads in Circles the Fire and Ice collection. The Yellow's are from the Fire collection. I actually used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the wholes and attach the brads.

.......

This sentiment is just one of many images being released tomorrow, and you just have to hop on over there because I can not contain my excitement about them when I saw them I just about fell off my chair they were so great!!!

.......

Well so much to do and so little time to do it!!! I also promised myself that today I would 1. Take the kiddo's to the pool we belong to. 2. Take some time to comment on my favorite blogs I never seem to get to visit any more, and 3. Get some much needed laundry and cleaning done, plus 4. Call my longest and bestest friend Lynn, we do not get to talk enough anymore!!!

.......

So I better head on out and get started on those things!!!

.......

Do NOT forget to come back tomorrow I have another Sneak Peak for you from Digital Delights by Louby Loo, and also my Flutter By Wednesday Post as well!!!!!

.......

Have a Great Tuesday I hope yours Twinkles and is very Stampendous!!!! Don't forget to stop by and donate to the Make a Wish Foundation in Ethan Weimen's Honor and pick up some free stamps from me, Lauren Meader, and Vicki Garret to boot while doing it!!!!

Etsy Inspired #41 DT Sample

We Love You Daddy!!
Well it is now Saturday Afternoon instead of Saturday morning, but as promised I have my Etsy Inspired Challenge DT post for you.

.......

I am not sure what is wrong today, but I am feeling very shaky and light headed so I am not getting much done very fast today!!!!

.......

Well Hubby has started Harvest the Farmers started cutting Wheat on Tuesday on Wednesday they had about 50 loads of wheat brought in, then on Thursday they got about 300 loads in, and Yesterday it was up to about 1000 loads, but today it rained and rained so that put a stop to Harvest for a day or two. Makes me wonder if he will get to be home for Fathers day. He has never been off on Fathers day the entire 10 years we have been together so that would be nice for the kiddo's!!! Harvest seems to always be different times in June and July, but it is always during Fathers Day!!!!!

.......

So this weeks Etsy Shop was so cool it is called the Potato Patch Shop. The make stamps with carved Potatoes and then stamp on kids shirts and onesies with the Potato's!!! Perfect for our Stamping DT right???

.......

So when you are done here if you have not already please go visit my team mates and see all their great creations this week too!!!

.......

The Etsy Inspired Design Team:
.......
.......
This shop had some really cute pieces to gain inspiration from and here are a few of them.

The particular piece I decided to use is this cute potato stamped Owl below. I knew he would be perfect for some of my images I just received from Louby Lou over at Digital Delights. I was asked this week to be on their new Design Team and these images are so so so super cute!!!

So this is the card my girls are going to give Daddy for Fathers Day tomorrow and they actually helped me make it!!!

I printed Hooty the owl in his great race car off and colored him with my copic. The car is R20, R29, and R35, the Wheels are c1, c2, c3, c5, c7, and B100, The Scarf is G20, G24, and G28, Hooty is also using all the Cool Grays and has B21 for his eyes. The headlights are Y02, and I used a Silver Metallic Shaker pen for the Metal parts of the car.

I used SU Card Stocks in Real Red, Garden Green, and KiWi Kiss DSP. I used my Mega Nesties, and my Ribbon Holder Nesties and cut out the shapes and the Ribbon Slider.

I had wrote the Sentiment on Real Red Card stock and then cut it out jagged like and used glue dots to adhere it to the Silver Shimmery Metallic Ribbon.

Above is a close up of Hootie. He was so much fun to color up and my girls loved him!!!! Yes Accckkkkk (I am crazy but I did let my 7 year old experiment just a tiny bit with me holding her hand and controlling the pressure she was using with my Copics) Yep I need to be committed!!!!

I gotta go lay down now as I am just not feeling very well, but I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday and I really hope you play in our Challenge this week. We are enjoying seeing more and more people playing every week, and all you have to do is go to the shop, and then Head on over to Ashley's Blog (Click on my Etsy Button Link in my Side bar to get there) and leave a link in her Etsy post to your project. If you do this by next Friday at noon PST you will be entered into the drawing for this weeks prize from the Etsy Shop which is your choice of one of the potato stamped T-Shirts or Onesies in the store!!!!!

Have a Stampendous Fathers Day Everyone!!!!
