Sharon used that fabulous red and white checked paper again, and paired it with a fun cowgirl-riding-a-pig image (hee hee):

We have a few more tropical ATC's to share with you this week, and I'm certainly feeling the theme this week.  I love my new home in California - the weather is 80-85 degrees every day and no clouds to be seen.  Heaven.
Anyway - here we go, my first ATC uses this sweet Saturated Canary image, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits:

My next ATC uses a digi stamp is from The Angel Company, colored with Prismacolor markers.  I used purple gemstone stickers and the "HAPPY" word is a sticker:

Denice made this delicious-looking tropical drink ATC, love the fruits hanging over the edge:

Sharon's gorgeous Michelle Perkett mermaid image looks even prettier with those gemstones in her hair:

AND we have our fabulous guest designer Jen with us today, who used our sponsor's prize image, Michelle Perkett's Leilani:

I just adore that sand and blue sky!

Wicked Wednesday #31 - Totally Tropical

Hi everyone - happy Wednesday!  I literally JUST arrived in California late last night, after driving for four days all the way across the country.  So I apologize for posting this late.  The drive went smoothly and I love our house.  But let's get to business!

The random winner from last week, who wins their choice of one of the Heather Ellis images that we played with, is...
Congrats, San Hoogland!  Please send me an e-mail to with "WW #30 Winner" in the subject line and I'll get your prize out to you.
And our top 3 for last week are:

(I really hate when people do this and I swore I never would, but you're going to have to check back later for the top 3, as I have an entire moving truck of stuff to unload and my family is already glaring at me waiting for me to get off the computer and help!  LOL)

Now let's get on to this week's challenge, our sponsor this week is:

And our new theme is:
Totally Tropical

One random winner this week will receive their very own Leilani image from MPS, the same image that myself and the DT are creating with.

I used some DP from Stampin' Up! that I have had in my stash for a very long time (like at least 8 years - holy cow!), and colored my image with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits:

Chelsea used the text from the image in a cool strip that she layered across the ATC - how clever:

Denice's ATC just screams tropical, does it not?

Megan's bright colors and pink flowers are so pretty:

Sharon kept the focus of her ATC on the beautifully colored image:
Thank you so much for joining us again and we sure do hope you'll play along with us and link up below!  Peace.

Saturday Reminder - Spring Fever

Hello everyone - I take off for California today with my family, moving from the East coast to the West!  Wish me luck!  :)  Before I go, here's our Saturday reminder post for your enjoyment.

We used some more of our sponsor's sweet images (Heather Ellis digi stamps), my first ATC is done in purples with a pretty sentiment from TLC:

And my next ATC uses a word digi image from Just Some Lines:

Denice gives us some fabulous humor this week, and I love how she kept most of the images uncolored, it just looks so cool:

Chelsea's beautiful coloring is all that's needed to make this ATC beautiful:

 Megan has a way of coloring that just makes me so envious, love her shading and the white lines she uses:

Sharon used this beautiful bird and nest image to make her Spring ATC, love that quote:

Hope you'll join us and link up (post below) your Spring Fever ATC!  Peace.
