I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Wonderful Days!

Yikes! Talk about doing something outside your comfort zone. I have not picked up my Prismacolor pencils in years. YEARS! I forgot that I even had the collection that I do. :D

What brought this on you may wonder? I decided to play along again with the "Follow the Recipe" challenge at the Catered Crop blog. I did  FTR#7 and had fun putting all of the ingredients together. (I used that card for my mom's birthday card and she loved it.) So, one of the ingredients for FTR#8 is Prismacolor pencils. After hunting them down in my closet, I gave them a try and colored this cute, cute Mo Manning image. No doubt that I need some practice, but, maybe not too shabby in the end. Some of the other recipe ingredients are patterned papers with small prints and stripes, greens, blues, browns for colors, spring and child/animal themes, stitching, shapes like ovals or die cuts, embellishments like pearls, flowers, and buttons. There are a few others. For a complete list of ingredients for the FTR#8, check out the Catered Crop blog.

I've used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #110 for the layout. Unlike Jen, I like these angled panels a lot. (Check out Jen's blog here for a good chuckle, and a gorgeous card). Anyway. . . here's my final product:

Stamps: none, my image is a digital from Mo Manning called Wonderful Day
Card stock: SU early expresso and neutrals white
Patterned paper: SU and Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Printer
Other: Prismacolor pencils, sewing machine, pink flower brads, SU pink felt flower and leaves, Kaiser pink pearls, SU oval punch

Have a great Sunday afternoon. Thanks for looking in,


  1. Colleen - Not too shabby at all! I'm so glad you dug up those pencils because, darlin', this is adorable. Love Mo Manning and love what you did with this. Thank you for sharing it with us at Catered Crop.

  2. So pretty and sweet. I like the angled panels too - though I flipped mine around. :)

  3. Soooo sweet! Thanks for playing along at Catered Crop!!
