Popcorn anyone!

Crafting with Deedee has a great sketch challenge this week. I decided to use her, What's Poppin image and sketch as one of the samples for my daughters birthday party invites. I'll have to blog about my other sample later, anywho, I'm taking my daughter and her trailer load of friends to a movie for her party. I think this may be the perfect card for the invites, I just have to get her approval on which one to use!

Bears Big Gift!!

I'm so very proud of the way I did this card. As you can see, I paper pieced the gift and bears boots. This is my first attempted at paper piecing, and I love, love, love it, it certainly was a lot easier then I thought. Mind you, I think I did it backwards, I cut out the ribbon first instead of cutting out the box, but it still turned out ok.

Faith's DT blog, Card Ideas from the D2D designers is having a Fabulous folds challenge, so I made this a gatefold card. This card is being entered into Faith's Delightful Inspiration progressive challenge. The image is...............that's right, Bears Big Gift, there are so many uses for this image. I used it and made it into a birthday card, also for a challenge at the new ning group The Outlaws.

Clowns Life!!

Oops almost forget this one! Catch the Bug's mini challenge Tuesday, was to use the free image provided and add bling, bling, bling. I just love this little clown, she has a great outlook on life, no matter how old you are, Enjoy it, or don't take yourself so seriously all the time. Aaahhhh, words to live by.

All week long they have given us mini challenges to complete, sadly, today is the last challenge day. We have until Sat. Jan. 22, 2011 by 6:00 am EST to have all our card or projects linked.

For you

Wednesday mini challenge at Catch the Bug is a sketch from Scrappy, here is my take on it.

Warm Hands!

This week over at Bugaboo Stamps and Catch the Bug, they are celebrating their birthday all week long. So, that means that they are having mini challenges from Monday until Friday this whole week. For Mondays mini challenge you had to use the colors blue and white. As you can see I added a hint of purple with mine. Jodi at Bugaboo stamps is also offering everyone a gift of 60% off your entire order until Jan. 22. 2011, just go here and pick up the code.
The challenge over at Card Ideas is to use wintry colors, blues and purples, I think this card fits right in.

Bee Mine!

I'm in the process of making Valentine cards for some of my family and friends. Here's one I made with one of Laurie Wilson's images from Doodle Pantry, I just thought this image would go perfect with the new sentiment I picked up from Michaels last week.
For my background paper, I used plain red cardstock and stamped it with, another new stamp from Michaels, Memento's Rose Bud ink and distressed it. I punched out 2 filigree hearts and the ribbon is from my stash.

This is being entered into the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Card Pattern - Sketch
Doodle Pantry Digital Doodle Challenge - Anything Goes with Image
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
One stitch at a Time - Anything New

Happy New Year!!

Just like yesterday, I'm starting the New year with the December Mingle card that Jean Sandford sent to me. Thank you ever so much for both the card and the goody's inside. I love all the glitter you added, such a cute card.

I'm hoping that the New Year finds us all in good health and strength and that we all have a very prosperous New year!

I'm also hoping to be more organized and consistent with the challenges that I enter throughout the New year. One can only try, with all the challenges and new blogs opening up it will be hard for me to do. I'd also like to try new techniques with my cards and paper crafting, maybe do another scrapbook album. Well, we'll see how it goes, after all I do still have to work.

Have a Wonderful and Relaxing Day!!
