Sunday Was My 1 Week Anniversary...

of being an official BLOGGER!
All in perfect timing... I became a Design Team member
for the Pixie Cottage that same day~a wonderfully creative way to celebrate!
The celebration continues as I get to share with you what I whipped up
for this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge.
Based on the following sketch by fellow Pixie Cottage Design Team member

And after oh so subtly inquiring with my best pal on eBay, 24 hours ago,
"What are your 2 favorite colors?"
Eileen; one of the Pixie Cottage Illustrators, and known as 'craftyemg' on eBay~
replied, "pink & purple."
Armed with that information,
a super cute
Molly stamp
Eileen illustrated~ (available at the Pixie Cottage)
and the urge to show Eileen
just how SWEET I think our friendship is
I created this...

I couldn't help but think to myself,
"Who knew I was a card maker!?"
I had so much fun coloring with my Copic markers
and adding just the right amount of confection to the cupcakes and lollies!
I used a real lolli stick on the lower right "floral image" lollipop from the sketch.

When I see 'candy' in 'paper art' I think of
the eBay group I belong to
As in most of my work parts are as shiny as Rudolph's nose!
The scrapbooker in me is evident here in my "creative blend" title...
"my"- Making Memories Stickers
"sweet" - k i Memories Color Theory
"ami" - Paper Studio ala Hobby Lobby

The pattern paper that is raining candy is by Scrimages 'Candy #165'

A duplicated oval on the inside for a hand written note...

And a closeup of the tasty treats...

Thank you for browsing at my first ArtishtiCard :)
I can't wait 'til the next Pixie Cottage challenge.

Eileen, I hope you loved your 'Sweet Molly'
with a touch of Artish.
I am so grateful one simple question on eBay
has led to years of being Sweet Amis!
