 Once again another fun  From The Heart challenge and image.

Other than the Happy Birthday sentiment all other images and sentiments are from Frog and Frozen files. The frog was colored using copics.
The fly image has 3 layers building the wings and eyes giving as much dimension as possible.  I also added Liquid glass to the eyes and wings give it more interest.

Life is like an ice cream.

Digi image called" Ice cream lineup" is the June image at From the Heart stamps. Buy the first image and when you join in the monthly challenge, you will receive the next months image free.  Sounds like a great deal to me. I also love the fact that most of the images come with sentiments to match.
Image was colored using copics. I used Spellbinder dies to frame and spotlight center ice cream adding dimensional tape to back. The red strips are embossed drywall tape.(one of my favorite staples)

Have a Mice Day!

  Digi image from From The Heart Stamps was colored using copics.  I decided to give the weekly sketch challenge a try using one of the free images. Who doesn't like freebies right?
I tried to keep the card very simple, however my grandaughter was krafting along with me and she unintentionally marked my finished project, so I had to do a little creative camouflage. LOL
I used I-rock studs as well as pearl pen to embellish my card.
