Southern Girls #6

Hello everyone! It's time again for another challenge over at Southern Girls. This week we want to see you use your Favorite Color. Our sponsors this week are Make it Crafty for our international crafters and The Scrapbook Outlet for our New Zealand/Australia crafters.
The design team were lucky enough to be supplied some images from and I chose this cute little mushroom house. My sister just bought a house so I thought I'd make her a house warming card. I've kept it pretty simple since I had to finish this up while on vacation and I couldn't cart all my punches and things with me :( I took my already colored image...least i got that done b4 I left the craft store and sought out paper and this is what i came up with. I think the papers are a good fit, just with there were a little more going on there. Sorry, don't remember the brand of papers, but I've colored this with copics and the foreground and background are done with chalk. The flowers are wild orchid...managed to sneak a few of those in the car with me, lol. Guess that's about it. Make sure to stop by and see what the rest of the DT has come up with, you won't want to miss them. Hope you all have a fabulous week and I'll be back into the swing of things around here after Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

Lexi's Creations #27

Hey all! It's time again for another challenge over at Lexi's! This week we want to see projects with traditional Christmas colors. Our sponsor this week is Letraset.

For my project I've created some cute little tags with one of Lexi's new images that can be found here. The tags were cut with my circuit and the images were colored with copics. That's it, easy peasy, and now I'm that much close to being ready for Christmas!

Make sure you stop by to see what the rest of the DT has to show you and to check out the rest of Lexi's new images that were showcasing!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Hello all! It's time for another challenge at Creative Inspirations. Our theme this week is anything Christmasy/Wintery. This weeks sponsors are The Crafty Pad with a Christmas stamp and Softpencil with a $10 gift voucher to spend in her store. Without further ado here is my card...

Elizabeth from Softpencil kindly gave us some images to work with and I chose this adorable boy and girl with a reindeer...who I decided to make frosty:) Sorry for the shotty picture, but I was getting ready for vacation(which I'm on now)when I took this and I didn't have time to set up a spot by my ott lite. Anyway, I've colored this with copics on my new express it blending's gonna take me a bit to get use to coloring on that, but I think I like it! I've used icicle stickles to make it look snowy at their feet and the papers are old SEI I think...had them for ages. The snowflake was cut with my circut and covered with stickles.

Well, I think that about covers it. Make sure you stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has made. As I said b4 I'm on vacay right now so I won't be around tons, but I'll try and pop on every now and again. Hope you have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!

Sugar Nellie Fairies

Hello all! Got another Sugar Nellie for you today! I do so love these images...can't wait to get some actual rubber! This one's just for me, no DT stuff to go thru, so here's the card...
I've been working on coloring this up for a while now and today seemed like a good day to get it finished up. I think there's like a day left in the current Sugar Bowl challenge (sketch below) so I'm entering that to.

If I told you how long this simple sketch took me, you all would laugh at me! That's the price you pay for not paying attention to how large you're printing your image I guess. Even with that simple sketch I didn't have a whole lot of room to work with.
Here's a close-up of the couple. It took me forever to decide what color those wings should be and in the end I just kept adding colors til I liked it, lol! The blue part of the background is Copics and idk if you can tell but around the outer edges I went into the blue with yellow chalk. The green at the bottom is also done with chalk.
Well, that's it, decided to keep this one simple so even a man could appreciate it, lol. Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!

Lexi's Creations #26

Hello Everyone! It's time again for another challenge at Lexi's! This week's challenge is an easy one as 'Anything Goes' I find these challenges to be a good time to do something I've been wanting to try out. So, here's what I came up with...

I made a bookmark! I've been seeing these corner bookmarks everywhere lately and have soo been wanting to try one out. The in-laws were here this past week and didn't leave me much time to craft, so it all worked out great! I even gave the bookmark to my MIL who loves to read! The image I used is called Fairy Dust Butterfly and can be found here.

Here's a close-up of the awesome butterfly! I've covered it with diamond stickles. The flowers are bobunny ... with a little diamond stickles. Rhinestones are from my stash and the papers are DCWV .

This weeks sponsor is Joanna Sheen with a 10 voucher to her store! Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the DT has come up with. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a fabulous day!
