Edwin with Stolen Heart

Is anyone a Backyardigans fan? Well, I've been having fun with some Magnolia stamps and colored a few of them to resemble the Backyardigans characters! LOL So this first one is Tyrone the moose and I used Edwin with Stolen Heart which was perfect!

All I had to do was add some antlers and ears then color in the face to look like Tyrone and the rest was easy... Edwin had the perfect shirt on and the face came naturally. :D To do this, I first drew in the the extras with a light pencil and just before coloring it, I erased the pencil marks as much as possible.

Check out that cute face... isn't he adorable?! Tomorrow I'll have a short tutorial on how I colored Uniqua so you can see how easy it was. I ended up coloring all five characters and made a gift set out of them for an elementary school teacher. So what do you think? An acceptable conversion?

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Pattie's Creations Challenge #40 - Anything goes
Phindy's Place Challenge #98 - Animal planet
Simply Magnolia Challenge - Anything goes

Welcome back to the Alice in Wonderland Chibis previews from Simply B Stamps! Today we have the wonderful Alice - she'd be perfect for the upcoming holiday especially holding that bunny. Isn't she cute?! Make sure to drop the SBS Blog for more inspiration using this image and tomorrow we'll have a blog hop featuring our final image when all these images will be released. I wonder which character it will be?!

There have been some wonderful guesses in trying to figure out what this banner will say! You're almost there with only one more day left before a winner is chosen. That's right, today is the last day and tomorrow I'll announce the winner who will receive all four Petite Dames from Little Miss Muffet Stamps in digi form!! Whohooo! Isn't that wonderful?! He he he.

Here is your next and final clue... "N"! So far, the letters are "DOERN" and if you're still wondering what it could be then here are two hints... the letters are mixed up and it's been part of the file names. LOL Ok, ok... I'm practically giving it away but most of you have already guessed correctly. ;D I wonder who will win.... but you'll have to check back tomorrow to see who it is! Good luck and thanks for dropping by!

Agent Eclair

I've got a little surprise for you today... it's a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and we even have a freebie for you to use!! But before we get to those details I want to show off my project first. :D Our theme for this fortnight is Silhouettes - that's right, we want to see your silhouettes and shadows!

For my project I merged three silhouette images to create the background... Agent Éclair Dropping, Agent Cupcake Descending and Treehouse Headquarters. The card came together quickly but in the end I decided to add a bit of color and added Agent Éclair in the foreground. The saying on the metal embellishment is "Possibility begins with imagination" which I thought as perfect for these girls. :D

All the Silhouettes were released last week from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and even the rubber stamps are available in silhouette digi form!! It's a steel of a deal too... any three silhouettes for just $3.00 - so head on over and start browsing for some ideas. :D

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time Challenge #105 - Girly
Pile it On Challenge #12 - Up in the Air
Sentimental Sundays Challenge #94 - Metal
That Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge - Sentiments

Now for that FREEBIE! Head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog and pick up a cute little silhouette that you can use in the challenge! It will be available for a couple days so don't miss out. (And who knows, maybe the counterpart will show up for Easter next month!)

The White Queen

Everyone knows who the White Queen is, right? To be honest, I didn't even know she existed because, um, well, you know... the Disney version didn't include her in the cartoon! LOL Then I grew up and learned all movies come from books and the books contain thousands of more details that never make it to the movies! Hence, my education began. :D

This project uses the White Queen in the Alice in Wonderland Chibis Collection from Simply B Stamps and is our second image of the week included in the new releases! Don't forget to head on over to the SBS Blog to catch all the other projects and see what the DT has created.

The letter "O" is your second clue in trying to figure out what this banner will say - can you guess it? Read about the prize and details in The Tweedles post and feel free to leave your comments here. :D Good luck!!

The image I used is The Tweedles, from Simply B Stamps, and in true sibling fashion they are bashing it out to see who is the best. LOL I made banners for each of the characters so you'll get to see one new one every day. :D

Grampa Grumps
