....'Bedtime Snuggles' and she should be available at Funky Kits today! Oooo I just love her, isn't she just adorable?? As you can see I decided to go a little different route this time around and I've made a little wall hanging. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with it yet, maybe someone will buy it or maybe I'll decided to keep it for my daughter, we will see.

I didn't do a lot of accenting on this as I love this pic and my daughter in it and I think this paper is gorgeous all on it's own. You will notice a few gems on there and I cut out the word on my cricut.
Here's a closer view of the gems(look there's even on in her hair!!) and the word which was actually cut out three times...the under paper, the center is chip board, and the top layer which was also stamped...which was more grayish until the modge podge got to it lol. Oh' well, I still like it.
Any who that's it, short and sweet today, make sure you stop by and see what the rest of the Dt has made for you and check out our awesome sponsors Wild Orchid(Int) and Artfull Crafts(Aus/Nez) and I almost forgot there's a mini Dt call going on at the mo so be so to check out those deets here if your interested.

Hey all! It's time again for another challenge at Creative Inspirations! This week we want to see some distressing. We also have two fabulous sponsors this week. Our monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp with a $10 voucher to their store and Stitchy Bear Stamps has also donated a $10 voucher to spend in their shop. Stitchy also gave us a few images to work with and I've chosen this.....
...image called 'buddies'. For whatever reason i dicided I thought this image would look cook in black and white, so I gave it a shot. I haven't done full b&w before, so I wasn't too sure about the colors, but I think it turned out ok. The papers are from two different stacks and I distressed them all with my Tim Holtz distressor. The words are actually stickers from yet another stack and I put them on paper so I could distress them as well.
Here's a close-up of the couple. Then, I guess that's it, clean and simple today. I think left like this it can be given to a boy or girl.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the DT have come up with.

So, here is 'I give you my heart' in all her glory. My husband loves fishing, so this one's a little for me and a little for him lol. I colored her with copics to match the papers I used
Here is the full card closed. Not lots of fru-fru stuff, I know, but my husband just wouldn't appreciate it and I intend to take it to him at work(he's and ARMY man) and I don't want him to get teased to much :) Anyway, I think these pretty papers are K and Company, sorry, can't remember for sure...they came in a pack and I threw away the wrapping. Also, you can't tell very well from this angle, but the third layer is actually up on pop-up dots so at least I could get some dimension...I have a closer pic of that below.
Here's a close-up of the right side where you can see my little box holds a special treat! My hubby is a junk food junkie and especially loves m &m's so I know he will enjoy those!
Here's the dimension. The box is 1/2'" tall and was quite easy to make. In order to the the card big enough to fit over it I cut two pieces 6"x 6&1/2" and glued the half inch sides together.The box actually doesn't have a bottom, just sides and a top and two half inch sides to glue to the card. The drawer is 1/2" and I cut little half circles out of the ends to make it easier to pull out.
Lastly, here are the copics. Boy, can't believe I used more than I had room for..there must be some blending in there I don't remember, lol.
You have been TAGGED and want to participate? Then create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image. You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award. You can then choose 3 - 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged....
The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers. As always, the hardest part is to pick who to pass this on to, there are so many bloggers I could give it to, so . . .the 3 I have chosen are......

Hey there all my lovely followers and visitors! It's been a few days since I've posted, but I have been working. I've got lots of pic today, so I'll get on with it.
The decorative top is actually a tag...I'm very proud of myself for this one, lol! It seems like everyone else is always using beautiful tags on there creations, but I never know what to do with them. This one just fell into place, and I'm quite happy about it...I feel like I've joined a club,lol.
Here are your copics, there was lots of shading on this one, but if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
