Just A Little Something!

Happy Thursday!
Here is a quick little something that I put together tonight. The saying that I used is a rub on I had from TLC.
I used my watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color in Jammybella. I havent moved into the world of Copics as of yet, So until then I always use my watercolor Pencils. For the skin color I use pagedoodlers from cock-a-doodle!
Stay tuned on Friday night, I am going to be offering my 3K hits Blog Candy not to mention I will be adding some more creations throughout the night! Stampin Friday night for me!

2 Challanges in 1


Happy Friday all! I am so happy to finally end the work week. The weather is getting cool and there are clouds in the sky. I love this time of year, It always feels so cozy cuddled up in bed on a chilly saturday morning knowing that I dont have to get up at dawns early crack(That was a funny!) Also, It also means that I can complete some challanges. Tonight I have 2 in one. First, Beates WSC #62 and then I have the Bellaholicsanonymous color challange which is Purple, Black and cream. I love those colors together so this was kinda easy for me!

I also used cruisabella and heat embossed it in black. I added purple square eyelets in each corner. The sentiment is stampin Up's! Very Punny. The card size I used is a little unusual. It is 5X 7 1/4. I received about 300 greeting card envalopes(a friend is a Hallm*&% Rep.) and so she gave me all of these envies so I thought that I would try and use these envalopes so that is my reason behind the size of the card. If you want any of these envalopes, When I hit 3000 hits, I am going to include a bunch in some Blog candy, so keep your eye out for that! Anyways, Enjoy my creation and dont be shy and drop me a line and let me know what you think!

Bella buttons & bows embellishment challenge


Here my friends is another challenge and some cool Blog candy. This one is from Mile High Stamp & Scrap. The challenge was to use any Stamping Bella Image, buttons and bows or ribbon. In my case here I used Silver cord as seen in the buttons. This is my first Halloween card this season(I am kinda laggin) but I think I like the way this one turned out. I have tons of buttons and to tell you the truth, I have never used buttons in my cards. I have every intention of using them when I buy them though. So here was my chance. The image I used is witchybella. I had to search high and low to find the right sentiment to add to the card, and this one I found in Stampin Up's! Taggers Dozen. I thought it was totally appropriate. "Queen for a day"! The spider web background paper that is used is from "Diecuts with a view". I also used my most favorite punch from Stampin Up! Photo corners. So let me know what you think! So go on over to Mile High Stamp & Scrap and check out all the cool stuff goin on over there.

A spoon full of sugar challenge!

Hello all, Well here I am doing another challenge! Go on over to Spoon full of sugar and not only do they have some very inspirational projects over there but they also have a challenge every Tuesday and this weeks challenge was to use the colors Pink and Green. It's so funny, I have been working on this card for a couple of days and then I came across spoon full of sugar. I was pretty excited! Well now onto the specifics. This stamp I bought about 6 months ago and this is the first time I have used it. It is Beetle by Penny Black. I just love her stuff! I added buttons onto the tires as rims(Pink of course) and the Pink and green ribbon I stapeled on with Pink staples. The cardstock is all SU! in colors Green Galore and basic black. The paper I used I just purchase last night at Remember When In pleasant Hill(I love that store!) and it is called Kitty Whiskers by S.E.I. It is double sided so the pink is the other side of the stripes. Isnt is cute? The stamp I used is also from Stampin Up! and is the giggle from the "Warm Words" set.

cute little 3X3 Holder





Hello all my blogging friends! Hope everyone is well!
Tonight I was on a mission to make those cute little 3X3 card holders, well, I only ended up making one and this is the finished product. In one of my earlier posts I showed you all one of these that my awesome Stampin Up! demo, Gina made for me for my birthday, well I fell in love with the cute little things. I got the tutorial from Becky over at Inking Idaho( Thank you so much Becky for the template!) I have to say, I think I went thru 5 pieces of cardstock before I scored and cut at the right measurements. I am really bad with measurements, Yikes! Anyways, I finally put one together! I made this one for my Bella Sistah, (Shhh, dont tell her) It is in her fave colors. Teals and browns. and the little notecards are also in those colors. I used a retired Stampin Up! paper, I dont even remember what the name of the paper is and I also added a brown,pink and white ribbon in stripes.
So let me know what you think, I love to hear feedback and also, if you get the chance, go on over Becky's Blog and check things out!
