Update: I am pleased to announce that this card won the September Sketch Challenge on the OCL message board. Yay!!!! I am just thrilled. I won a free stamp set of my choice and they asked permission to base the October Sketch Challenge on one of my other cards. So, if you get a chance, stop by the OCL forum and play along with one of their great sketch challenges. They are a fun group of girls!

Hi guys! Have a card for ya today! I played along with the sketch challenge over at Our Craft Lounge. It was a great sketch to use. They have a few from the last few months of challenges that are worth taking a look at too. Here is my card...

The inside of the card is blank except for the coordinating stamped image...

My print paper is another lovely from My Mind's Eye Abbey Road. I mentioned before that this collection is fabulous. I just love these papers! I printed the sentiment on my computer and colored the images with my Copics.

I have to hurry again today. I still have not updated my supply list from a few days ago but I promise I have not forgotten. Have a great rest of the weekend!

Sketch for You to Try

Hello, hello! I have a quick one for you today. I played along with Jen Del Muro's Sketch for You to Try. It is a cute one this week. She always gives us fun sketches to try though. So take a look...

I used the adorable little set called Winter Warm by Stampendous. I never get tired of snowmen and snow flakes. I must have 30 different snow related images. It is ridiculous! I just love them though! My papers are Bo Bunny's new holiday line called Tis the Season. I really like those too.

My supplies are below. I need to run so I want everyone to have a great day. Bye for now!

Bubbles + Monkeys = FUN!

Please note: I posted very late in the day yesterday after being away for several days so please don't miss yesterday's post. Scroll down to catch both posts. Thx!

Hi there! I'm back today with a new card using some cute stamps just as promised. I mentioned yesterday that I picked up a new image while on a work break over the weekend. Well, the image is one of those that you might see the first time or maybe a 50th time and it does nothing for you and then one day, you see it used in just the right way. It catches your eye and you not only like it, you MUST HAVE IT. Please tell me I am not alone and this happens to you. The image is from a series that I actually *hated* until seeing the image that I used for today's card. So, without further mystery...

The image and sentiment are by Stampendous and they are from the Changito monkey series. Up until this particular image, I just could not stand those darn monkeys. I don't know why. They come in every pose and theme known to man. I generally like cutesy images to a point. What is it about the Changito? Who knows but with the exception of these bubble blowing darlings, they are just not my cup of tea. Well, it turns out that Stampendous has released a whole new line of unmounted, deep etched rubber images. They come attached to EZ mount and they are very easy to use not to mention that I love being able to buy a single image and related sentiment without investing a fortune for a set of stamps that I only want to use one from the group. The new release has several Changito images that would have changed my mind if the bubbles didn't do it for me. You may see more if/when my PayPal account ever recovers from its current state of poverty.

So anywho...about my is a little one, 4.25 inches square. My papers are some of the brand new My Mind's Eye Abbey Road line. I bought one sheet of this paper and made the most of it with the duplicates I made this time around. I made 9 copies of the card and I don't have even one sliver of a scrap left. I will be buying more! The Abbey Rd stuff is too cha-cha for words! I like them all...A LOT. Every one is more gorgeous than the last. MME has had some real winners this year. I have always liked their stuff but each collection seems to improve in some way. They really are great products.

I'm off to the rest of my day. It looks like our recent flooding may be getting better which means my county is back to business. Kids are back to school, roads are open, and hopefully, the poor souls that suffered damages are getting assistance. All this means that my errands can't wait another day. So you go and get busy too. Have a great day!

Papers- MME Abbey Rd Lucky Me "Hello World" Lucky Lime; misc CS; SU ultrasmooth vanilla. Stamps- Stampendous cling Changito Bubbles & cling Bubble Over. Inks- Memento Tuxedo Black. Tools- Coluzzle ovals. Embellishments- American Crafts ribbon; Favorite Findings mini naturals buttons; DMC #6062 embroidery cotton. Pens- Copic (E44, E42, W5, RV13, YG13, YG25, B0000); Zig baby blue; At You Spica clear.

Boo to You!

Hi folks! I'm back after a little break. A little blogging break was far from a break in activity. My part time job started again this weekend. The fall selling season is upon us. I had planned to blog at night after work but alas, I was pooped! And then yesterday, I ended up having my kids home from school due to some awful weather here. We had rains of "biblical proportions" and our county had so many road closures, the kids got the day off and they are home today as well. Well, enough about my about a card? I have another delicious little Halloween greeting to show you. I might never get tired of the new fall digi-images from All That Scraps. Wanna see it?

And the inside of the card...

I used the adorable "mummy trevor" digi image. I was worried the image wouldn't offer enough of a visual punch because it wasn't full of color but I think he works well anyway. I chose some papers from my stash. They are really old but I think they come together to accent the image well. My sketch came from the 3rd challenge offered by the girls over at Crazy 4 Challenges. So far, they have given us 3 great weeks of fun sketches. I can't wait to see what they come up with in the future. I love their card examples too. They are a super talented group of girls for sure!

I think the rest of my card is pretty easy to figure out. I'll list my supplies below. Be sure to pop back in tomorrow because I have another cute card to show you. When I worked over the weekend, I dropped by my favorite scrap store and splurged on a tiny little unmounted stamp and the sentiment to go with it. I played with it last night and I think you'll like the results. At least I hope you will! Have a great day and I will blog at ya soon!

Papers- ScrapEase Spider Web; Daisy D's Antique Black Gingham; CS by Bazill. Stamps- ATS mummy trevor digiu image; Hero Arts Ghostly Greetings. Inks- Tim Holtz milled lvender distress ink; plaid wisteria pigment ink. Tools- Cuttlebug halloween 3x3 die; EK circle punches. Embellishments- Favorite Findings mini naturals buttons.

You Are Bewitching, Ma'Dear!

Hello, hello! I can't wait to show you today's card. It is a challenge card and it uses another adorable digi image from All That Scraps. I'll just go ahead and show you and tell you about it in a minute. Take a look!

And the inside...

Isn't she darling?! I am having such a good time with all these precious fall images. Every one is cuter than the one before it and I still have a couple I haven't even used yet. I can't even imagine how cute the Christmas and winter images will be!

So, down to business! My card uses sketch #SC245 from Splitcoast. It is a really nice sketch for a tall, somewhat narrow image. This card also fulfills a challenge. Verve stamps has a new release coming up this Friday night and they have offered up 5 different challenges for all of us challenge junkies. Each one is hosted by a different person and they offer something for everyone to play along with and enjoy. The one I played with first was Jackie Pedro's distress challenge. I used a couple of Tim Holtz distress inks and added a little around the edges of the rust colored panel as well as the witch image panel. See below for the colors I used.

I printed my sentiment on the computer but I don't remember where I got the idea for the wording. It might have been from the ATS fall sentiments set which I don't own yet but my notes didn't have a source (oops!) and I forgot to go look before I started writing here. As long as you know it is not some little jewel that flew out of my brain creativity puddle, I guess we are cool, huh?

I think I'm off for now. I start back to my part time employment this weekend and it is time to get ready. Have a great day!

Papers- MME Boo to You Monster Mash & Midnight Stars; Daisy D's Traditions Antique Black. Stamps- ATS witch emma digi image; Hero Arts Halloween Greeting. Inks- Tim Holtz black soot and tea dye distress inks. Tools- MS emb zig zag edge punch; EK circle punches. Embellishments- favorite findings buttons; DMC #6139 embr cotton.

Pick of the Patch

Good morning! Super quick post today and I will drop in later to update my supply list. Today's card uses another one of those adorable ATS digi images from their recent release. Take a look...

My sketch came from the Friends of Flourishes blog and is #FTTC32. They had a great prize drawing with this challenge but I didn't get mine posted in time. Too late once again! It is a great sketch to work with though. My DP is a really old pattern paper by Lucy Rigg. Talk about blast from the past! I printed my sentiment on my computer but the idea came from ATS's fall sentiment set which I will be buying very soon.

I'll be back later to give you my supply list. Have a great day!

A New Challenge in Town

Happy Saturday, folks! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I got SO much done today. I love those productive weekends. Why don't they happen more often? I figured before I sat down to stamp my night away, I would show you the card I made yesterday for the very first challenge hosted by Crazy 4 Challenges. They gave away a great prize for cards posted before 8pm last night but alas, I was too late to get in on that action. I still had fun playing along though! Here is my card...

I can't seem to make up my mind whether I want to make fall or winter cards so I guess it is a good thing that both are on their way, huh? One thing is for sure though...this sketch is a fun sketch! They gave us a great one for their first week. My image is from the Stampendous set called Short Snowy Stacks. What a versatile set! It comes with several mix & match portions of holiday figures like elf suits and reindeer feet. They can be combined in lots of different ways. You can make a snowman wearing various hats or even a reindeer in a Santa suit. I went pretty conservative today I guess. My snowman isn't too adventurous of a combo but he sure is cute! And of course, these images color really well. I have to be able to color with my Copics dontcha know! I used an older Cuttlebug folder that I bought on clearance back in the spring. I can't seem to find the exact name of it since it isn't being sold anymore. It looks like a snowflake quilt in the background of the card. The snowflake embellishment at the top looks white in my photo but I promise it is punched from shiny, metallic silver paper. In real life, it shows up much better.

Well ladies, (I assume, LOL!), I am off for a night in the scramp room with hubby. Before I do that, I have an appt with my daughter and an Easy Bake oven so I better skeedaddle. I hope you enjoyed my card tonight and if you think of it, hop over to the new Crazy 4 Challenges blog and play along. The new sketch for the week is up and ready as of this morning. Good Nite!

Papers- Paper Studio winter blue words; misc CS. Stamps- Stampendous Short Snowy Stacks. Inks- Memento Tuxedo Black. Tools- CB snowflake (actual name ?) emb folder; MS snowflake punch.

I'm Diggin You

While you might expect a very groovy post after my 70's-esque title, it is really just a lead in to today's card using a stamp set that has really gone to the dogs. OK, enough puns and about a card? I want to show you one that I worked on a little while ago and just never got around to posting. I have another in progress on my desk but it won't be ready until later so here ya go...

I used a favorite set by Our Craft Lounge called Pat the Bad Dog and for the sentiment, I used Pat the Dawg House. I love how all those Pat the Dog sets work so well together. It is one of those simple cards that could be used for a friend or a significant other. My kids even got a kick out of it so kids would enjoy it too. On the inside, I left it without any more wording but stamped one of the coordinating border stamps of a dirt bed that had obviously been "dug."

My paper choices were some oldies from my stash...more of me trying to use up my copious amounts of printed paper. I colored the images with my Copics. For some reason, I color Ole pat the same way every time. He is just too cute as a brown dog! I need to branch out and make him a Dalmatian or something. I think he may be bored with brown LOL!

I think that's it for me today. I hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend. I will be doing the housework thing and hopefully stamping a little while the hub watches college football. Even though I am NOT a sports fan, I do love college football season because that means while the hub crashes on the couch for as many games as he can manage, I am at my stamp desk in the same room playing happliy with my toys. The best thing we ever did was move into our current house with our lovely bonus room that holds his favorite flat screen TV and a leather loveseat as well as my scramp stuff. I happily share my craft space with him so that we may peacefully coexist. He has a TV and a computer and I have my toys so there is never an argument about how much time one of us spends at our favorite pastimes. We are together and occupied with an activity we love. Who could ask for more? Happy Friday!

Papers- Imagination Project Woof!; Bo Bunny clover dot. Stamps- OCL Pat the Dawg House; Pat the Bad Dog. Inks- Memento Tuxedo Black. Tools- EK (1 3/8 & 1 1/2in ) circle punches; Michael's ribbon.

Friends are the Family...

that you pick yourself. Isn't that a sweet sentiment? Well, it is the basis for today's card. I am back in a "no hoarding, just use it up" phase and I found some things that I had forgotten about... an older Doodlebug photopolymer stamp set and a DSP pack from several Stampin Up catalogs back. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and this week, I even checked to make sure I was using the current sketch. Yay, me! Here is my card...

And the inside...

Cute, huh? I thought so anyway. I tend to gravitate towards bright, fresh colors when I stamp floral images but the bolder colors of my papers, from the Darling Doodles DSP series, were appealing to me for this card. I have always loved these papers but I ended up "saving" them and if I don't use them soon, I just know they will seem to dated to me and it will go unused. The stamp set I used is called Doodlebug Friends. It was one of Doodlebug's first clear cling sets. I love all of their stuff. Their images and papers just jive with my style of scrapping and since my kids are still young (and the photos I am scrapping are of them even younger LOL), they really work for me.

I have friends coming over for a day of scrappin and yakkin so I am off in a hurry once again. Check out my supply list below for anything I didn't mention. Have a great day!

Papers- SU Darling Doodles DSP; SU CS (purely pomegranate & wild wasabi). Stamps- Doodlebug Friends. Inks- SU craft brocade blue; memento tuxedo black. Tools- BB swiss dots emb folder; EK circle punches. Pens- Copic G24, R39, B34, R02, B32. Sketch- Mojo Monday #103.

Ooh! New Digi Images from All That Scraps!

I don't know when I have been so excited about a release in the stamping/scrapping world as I was to see the new releases from All That Scraps. I thoroughly enjoyed the blog hop of sneak peeks and those talented girls on the design team did a beautiful job of showcasing the new images. Last night when they went live, I was there with my credit card in hand, ready to buy as many digi images as I could manage. I still want more but unless pennies fall from heaven, I am waiting a while. However, the ones I did buy are already made into cards which I will be showing you this week. Today's card uses one of the cutest. Take a look...
The last photo is of the inside of the card as you could probably figure out for yourself. LOL! I apologize for the blurry shot on that last one. I didn't check my photography until I had lost my good outside light. Oh well! You get the idea I bet. So, whadaya think? That kitty colors like a dream, as do all the CC Designs images at ATS. I used a new Bo Bunny Halloween paper for the background. I was worried about the weird shades used in that line of paper but Copics made it easy to color my image to match just right. I decided that the kitty's bat costume needed a splash of color for this card (after coloring one in all black) so it is lined with what we will imagine to be green satin. Haha! That great ribbon came from some of the new fall ribbons at Hobby Lobby. I was tickled to see both a green and an orange with black polka dots just in time for Halloween projects . Since you can't beat their sales, I bought them both.

My sketch is another great one from Mercy Kerin. I have been having a lot of fun with her Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenges. I just started noticing them a few weeks ago and they are always great sketches to play with so it is no accident that I am posting cards using them 2 days in a row. Sometimes, I see other sketch challenges that are a little "out there" and I wonder just how much the designers are trying to stump us. Not the case with Mercy!

Since this is another late night post, I am leaving you with my supply list and a smoochy good night kiss. Have a great day tomorrow. It's hump day dontcha know!

Papers- Bo Bunny Boo Crew Goblins. Stamps- ATS Halloween candy Kitty digi image. Tools- QuicKutz polka dots emb folder; MS cornice edge punch; EK 1.25in circle punch; spellbinder blossom die.

Playing Along with Mercy's Sketch but Just Under the Wire!

Hi Folks! Happy Labor Day! I know I never post this late in the day but I want to show you a card that I worked on just in time for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #37. With the holiday weekend, I just had way too much to accomplish and not enough hours to do it in. So, how about I show the card and give you the deets after you have seen it. Deal?

I'll be quick! The gumball image came from Clear Dollar Designs and the sentiment did as well but it came from my Everyday Jar-gon set. It was so much fun to color! I used my Copics and accented with a Sakura Jelly Roll silver pen. It was a really fun sketch. I think it would work well with a variety of images. I am always partial to circles in a sketch too.

Since it is late, I am going to leave you with a friendly goodnight. I'll be back tomorrow with another new card. I worked on several this week. Have a great night!

Papers- MME Check Him Out & Dotty Dude (Just Dreamy). Stamps- CDS gumball machine; Everyday Jar-gon. Inks- Memento Tuxedo Black.

Another Challenge with a Few New Stamps

Howdy, y'all! I have a cute (in my opinion!) new challenge card to show you and I used a new stamp set to make it. I am so excited about this new set. I think it is very versatile and it is tons of fun to color. More about it in a minute though. I have to tell you that today's card is also my offering for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #81. I love their stamps but I haven't gotten the opportunity to order any just yet so I used what I have to play along with them this week. How about a picture first and then a few details? Here ya go!

It is a little card...4 1/4 inches square. This is that fun little size that makes it possible to use standard A2 envelopes which saves on extra postage. It makes such a fun little greeting! My sketch, as I mentioned above, came from Taylored Expressions. Now, about my stamp set! It is a newer set from Clear Dollar Stamps and it is called Everyday Jar-gon. It includes tons of adorable images that can be used together. I promise you will be seeing me use it again. There is a jar with several lid options as well as various "fillings" that go in the jar like gumballs, cookies, and even a gold fish! The sentiments included are perfect for the images and I have to say that I just love the font they are written in. They can be used with several stamps that I already own too. Yay! I used Copics to color my image and I even tried one of those yummy new colors. The top of the jar, above the water, is colored with the new pale blue Copic, B0000. It is fantastic for coloring glass. It gives just enough shading to mimic a glass item. I have played around with reflections and shadowing and it is great for that too.

I also want to mention that I used the Spellbinder Blossom die to cut the blue flower shape under the green Prima flower. I have had it for months and have not used it yet. How crazy is that? I am very happy with that shape. It looks great nested with other sizes or used with plain circles. It is really versatile. The stamped image panel was cut with the new Spellbinder's Labels #8 die set. I have been saving my pennies so I could order the Stampin Up Bigz Top Note die but I am pretty glad I waited now. This set includes 6 sizes of basically the same shape as a top note which makes it much better for matting images.

One last thing I want to point out is the ribbon I used. Pretty, huh? Well, it was free! A few weeks ago, it was a free gift from Archiver's during a big Make & Take weekend. They offered a free ribbon sampler made by American Crafts exclusively for Archiver's. It came with 40 feet of ribbon and they are all delicious. My only complaint is that you only got 4 ft of each ribbon. Now, I am hooked but can't buy any more just yet, if ever. I just hope that these ribbons will be sold at some point in the future. Four feet each is just a tiny taste!

I think I have jabbered enough today. Lots of details in this post! Anything I didn't mention is listed below. If I have forgotten something, drop me a note and I will be glad to tell you about it. Have a great Sunday and enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend. Buh-bye!

A Mojo Challenge Card...It's Been Awhile!

Hello! I was very happy to get a card made using a Mojo Monday sketch. I am pretending that it is just fine that it was last week's Mojo though! I haven't had the time to play along lately and I lost track of the current number. So, I planned out my card and referred to my lovely sketch, not knowing that if I had just turned the page of my sketch diary, I would have seen the latest sketch for this past Monday. Oops! Oh well, a new card is a new card! You wanna see it?

And the inside of my card...

It uses Mojo Monday Sketch # 101. It is no secret that I love square cards so the sketch caught my eye. I tried several different stamps and papers and finally arrived at the combo above. I love the paper because it is so happy and cheery! I ordered it a while back and finally got around to cutting it. My image is from a fun SU set called Wagon Full of Fun that was in a spring mini catalog if I remember correctly.

Well, thanks for visiting. I promise to pay close attention to next week's Mojo and try to keep my numbers straight. Have a great weekend!

Papers- Bella Blvd Treats & Sweets; misc CS. Stamps- SU Wagon Full of Fun; Hero Arts You Deserve the Best. Inks- Graphite Brilliance.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hello folks! Happy Friday! I have a really cute card to show you but it will be a super quick post. I have to hurry off to the rest of my day so let's jump right in. Shall we? Today's card uses a Cosmo Cricket paper that I have loved since the minute I saw it. I love the whole collection as a matter of fact! Take a look!

I am so ready to start playing with darker fall colors again. I loved all the cute summer images but the richness of the autumn palette is my perennial favorite. The image is another great digi image. I found this freebie at Cocoa Studio. There were several images that coordinated with it as well. It is perfect for coloring. And on the subject of coloring...this collection of Cosmo Cricket is very easy to match to the Copic line. There are several exact matches and shading was a breeze. That always makes for an easier project!

I think the card is pretty self explanatory so I am off like a prom dress. Oops! Can I say that here? That is getting a little racey for my little G rated card blog huh? Can you forgive me? ;) Anywho, my supplies are listed below if you are wondering about anything. Have a great weekend!

Papers- Cosmo Cricket Farmers Market and Apron Strings (both from Early Bird series). Stamps- Cocoa Studio free digi image. Inks- Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters distress. tools- EK circle punches; Nestie scalloped circle die; Marvy scal circ punch; EK sm 5 petal flower (inside decoration). Embellishments- 7/8in persimmon grosgrain ribbon from Michael's $1 bin. Pens- Atyou sand spica; Copic (R27, YG63, YG03, BG75) Bic Tranquil teal. Font- Tempus Sans ITC 16pt.

More Back to School Fun

Hello friends! I have a little something new to show you today. I made another back to school card and I used one of the adorable new C.C. Designs digi-images available from All That Scraps. They have introduced an adorable little girl named Kiki La Rue and she is wayyyy too cute. There are 3 different styles of Kiki images and today's is Shy Kiki. Have a look-see...

And the inside of the card...

I played around just a bit with the image after printing and added a stamped apple from another set to make her more "schoolish." I absolutely love her little skirt and her chacha braids. Isn't she precious? I came up with several ideas for this image so you will be seeing her here again real soon. The sentiment is printed on my computer.

I thought this would be a great card for a sweet little girl starting back to school this fall. I had my little princess in mind but she is already back to school so I will listing this card in my Etsy shop very soon.

Well, our week is more than half over. A weekend is just around the corner. Yay! Everyone have a great end of the week. Thanks for stopping by!
