Digital Tuesday Challenge

Another week has come and gone...where?...I'm not really sure! I sure filled last week up with about as much as I could! LOL!
We have another great challenge for you at Digital Tuesday Challenge. You are to use your scrap paper. I know most of us have a huge pile!!! :) Squigglefly is giving away 3 images to the winner, so you don't want to miss out!
My card was made using the sketch from Sketch Saturday. The image is from Cuddly Buddly! So cute! I also remember that my scraps are from K & Company...pretty good, huh!?!? The flower and brad are from Spare Parts!Thanks for stopping by...

Also, be on the lookout for blog candy...

Judy gave me my first blog award! What an honor!!!

Thanks a Bunch!

(I have no idea why Blogger is flipping the picture...it doesn't open sideways @ home...grr!!)

WOW! It is super rainy & gloomy here today, so my picture is a little dark. I do love to hear it rain, though...makes for good sleeping! LOL! :)
I made this card for 2 challenges: 1) High Hopes-Circles (on my DP) and 2) A Spoon Full of Sugar-Sketch
The image is one from High Hopes. She just looks happy! Used my Copics to color her. Added lots of stitching around the card, too.

Bugs 'n Kisses

This week at DTC, we have a recipe for you to follow: brown, blue, & bling!!! The DT has created some super cute projects and we'd love for you to come check us out. Remember-we are a digital challenge blog using digi downloads. I love them! Takes up less space and are cheaper! :)

I used another image from Pink Petticoat. The snail is definately sportin' some bling! LOL! Just made it a cute little notecard size. I actually made a set of them.

Our sponsor of the week is Doodlepalace. We'd love for you to come play!

Flying By

All my mojo is "no-go." Ever feel that way?

This is going to be my FIL's Father's Day card. I am 99.999999% positive that he won't check my card blog. :) I find it difficult to make a manly card because I like to use all those frilly's!This is a Digital Stamp Oasis digi download.

ABC Challenge

Roses is the theme at ABC. I used an image I received from a swap at SCS and I believe it's a Sugar Nellie. Isn't she beautiful?!?! So innocent looking!My roses are Prima's. Finally was able to get some at Michaels and use them.I just did the colors theme and sketch on my own.
Thanks for looking!

Just Magnolia & Friday Sketchers

I actually did get this card done on the day both challenges went out, but my computer went coo-coo and I didn't get it uploaded.

The challenge over at Just Magnolia was to paper piece. I love doing this, but forget to when I'm coloring. I paper pieced her socks too, but you can't hardly see them.I kept the card fairly simple and used the sketch over at Friday Sketchers. I'm not sure how, but it turned out a little "fallish."

The brads are Spare Parts and the flowers are some more handmade ones.Hope everyone has a terrific Saturday!

High Hopes Challenge

I've had this poor sick dragon colored up for a few days and I love the sketch from High Hopes this week, but it's taken me awhile to get it together. Such is life! LOL! :)

I'm really pleased (been saying that a lot) with how I got the Copics to blend this time! I absolutely love to color, but I love it even more when it looks decent! HA! :)The flowers are a couple of the ones handmade by my Aunt-in-law. Only a few more left of them. The pretty brads in the middle are Spare Parts.

I machine stitched around the edges and distressed them.

The middle green paper is also embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.

A Spoon Full of Sugar

This week's challenge @ ASFOS was to use butterflies. I just got a new Cricut cartridge so I put it to work and used the butterfly that came with it. Added some Stickles and gems for it's flight path. For the main image, I used a Gorjuss Girl I received in a SCS swap. Just love those...
Decided to use purple for my main color-something I don't usually do. Love how it turned out! (Flowers are a yard sale special!! :P) The image's background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then inked over with a brown.

Digital Tuesday Challenge

This week's challenge was to create a bag or box. I decided to go with a bag and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. It took me awhile to think of what to do, but once I got started, I had a lot of fun making it. I used a digi image from Cuddly Buddly...so cute! The paper is from BasicGrey.
We'd love for you to have a go at it! My Grafico is giving away an entire set of digi stamps to the winner.

Mojo Monday

I love the sketch this week at Mojo Monday! (I can't believe I'm actually getting in a challenge on the day it was posted!) I went with an image from Digital Stamp Oasis! Love these birds...and I'm not usually a bird lover! I just shaded them with a light blue Copic marker and I like how it blended right in with the paper. The paper is from BasicGrey, and get this...I got a brand new pack of it at a yard sale! I was so excited! The big brad is another one of Spare Parts'.
