Thinking of you

Hello! I'm back with another challenge card for Artful Delight's Birthday Celebration. The third challenge is to use kraft, pink, and white. I went with something CAS, the sentiment is from Verve, the flowers are from There She Goes, and the background panel is embossed with an embossing plate from Spellbinders. Pretty quick and easy. Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great week! :)

Happy Birthday

Hi! I'm back with a quick card. Leeanne over at Artful Delight is having a birthday bash this weekend. I'm playing along with the second challenge which is Tic Tac Toe. Here is the board:

I chose to go diagonal and use: kraft, at least one button, and light pink. I love pink and kraft together so I knew immediately that's what I was going to do. My son needed a card for his boss, and this came together so quickly, I love when that happens. The sentiment is from JustRite and that beautiful background image is Anna Griffin. Can you believe that I picked it up for $.99? What a deal!

Ok, that's it for me today, thank you so much for popping by!! :)

A joy to me

Hi there! Miss me, lol! Wow, feels like forever since I blogged! My mojo has been MIA. With a very ill family member (on the mend now, thankfully!) and my temporary layoff seeming to be permanent (we were hoping to rent a larger house by Thanksgiving, with me out of work that's not happening) I just have been kinda down in the dumps. But what can you do, I am just trying to go with it. Anyway, enough sad talk, I finally got a card made! This is for week 2 of this month's Viva la Verve. Here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
I used some new to me MME Stella and Rose papers, love them! All stamps and the mini tag dies are from Verve. Well, that's it for me today, I'm going to see about getting another started for the 3rd sketch, also, Leeanne has fun hops with challenges and prizes going on this weekend, gotta find time to play there too. Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous weekend!! :)

There She Goes Paper Doll Birthday Challenges

Ok, so my last post I made a paper doll for the first of the There She Goes Stamps Birthday Challenges. Other challenges this week were to take your doll out on the town, the great outdoors, in the spotlight, and at a party. So yeah, me and my little dolly had some fun!

So we did some running around, errands, shopping, and here is my little doll helping me get some gas at the end of the day for the out on the town challenge:

For the great outdoors challenge, she played hide and seek with the girls, and fairies are very good at hiding! Suzy had a hard time finding her:
Dixie on the other hand, sniffed her out right away!

For the in the spotlight challenge, my paper doll put on a little show!

And the party challenge, she had a tea party with Hello Kitty!

Thanks for sharing my little paper doll's adventures, and thanks Jessica for the fun challenges. Happy birthday There She Goes! :D

There She Goes Paper Doll Challenge

Hi there! This month is There She Goes stamps 3rd birthday, and they will be having all kinds of challenges all month long. The first challenge is to make a paper doll. I used this darling fairy from The Fairy Best, isn't she cute! I made here a little fairy house too! They are both colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, and of course I added glitter to her wings, what fairy doesn't have some sparkle ;) There some other challenges this week like taking your doll out and about on the town, so I'll have to get some shots in and post later. Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day! :)

From our family to yours

Hi! How's your weekend going? Nothing exciting here, hubby is watching college football, and I wanted to play in this month's challenge over at the Flourishes forum at SCS. It is the Christmas Spirit Challenge, time to get a Christmas card done! Look at this gorgeous photo for inspiration:

I love it, so fun and festive! I used Amber's fun sketch this week. I wanted to keep the feel of the card pretty clean, so I decided to just use red ink and no coloring. I did add some glitter to the fruits, I really like the way it turned out. I used this beautiful wreath set from Flourishes, it has a large and small wreath and a couple of sentiments, I looked and I think this set is retired. :( The little decorative element on my label is a small stamp from the Wedded Bliss set, it fits perfectly! That's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
