Javablu Challenge

Happy Holidays
I have to Say that for the past couple of days, I have totally lost my mojo. I have sat at my desk for hours just staring at everything I need to create and I have just been stuck at this roadblock, soooo, I was surfing around and went and checked out Javablustamper and what did I find? A vary cool challenge and I love the colors that needed to be used so much that I went to creatin. If you are not a member of Javablustamper as of yet then go on over and check it out. It's not a vary large group but I think that it will be soon! Vary creative ladies over there and vary, vary sweet. With that being said, Here is my challenge card. The challenge was to use the colors Blue(bashful blue is what I used) & Brown(close to cocoa is what I used) and the kicker to this challenge was to also use 2 sentiments.
The image I used on this was a Magnolia image, I received this image from a friend so I am not sure as to what her name is and the sentiments I printed off of the computer and punched them out with my Stampin Up! word window punch and added brown brads to each end of the punched out words. I also used my Cuttlebug EF(snowflakes) and just added a few rhinestones . My finished card size is 5.5 X 5.5. I hope you enjoy my creation and hopefully I will have some more to share with you all real soon. I am on Winter break for 2 weeks so I am so looking forward to playing and sharing some more with you all!
Big Holiday Hugs to you all!

Just a couple of Bellas


First things first, I just recently received some images from an RAK partner that I had this last month and she sent me some Bella images that I dont currently own, I say currently because I intend on purchasing them after the holidays, so I couldnt wait to color some of them in and make something just lovely with them. Ok, I am not one that uses the word lovely but I just couldnt come up with another word, so anyways, I just love the bikerbabeabella and I had so much fun coloring her in.
The cardstock colors that I used are Rose Red, Blue Bayou,basic black & whisper white. You cant really tell from the picture but on the bottom I used itty bitty eyelets, I needed to add a little something and thats what it was.



This next one is called "Ipodabella" and she is equally adorable. I used the same patterned paper on her and the same color scheme as the Biker card but I added a little bling in the corners.
I hope you enjoy my creations, It's late and I think I need to go to bed. Brandon and I are getting up early tomorrow to go into San Francisco so I have to get my shut eye! More tomorrow night!
Hugs to all my sistahs out there in Blogging land!

More Christmas cards!!!




Hello all my cyber friends, Well I have been busy busy making my Christmas cards, For starters, here is one I made just tonight with "Wreathabella" I really like this one. I used Rub ons from Stampin Up! for the sentiment and I colored her in with my watercolor pencils and my blending pen. Isnt she darling?


This next one is one where I used a retired Stampin Up! set "Yule Bits & Borders. I also used my cuttlebug EF "swiss dots" The sentiment is used from the background stamp in the same set. Really cute and really easy!


And for this final one for the evening, I once again used Wreathabella, Pretty in pink,close to cocoa and whisper white cardstock. Also, The sentiment I used is from the Circle of Friendship stampin Up! stamp set. I added dazzleing diamonds glitter to the santa hat and the balls on her boots, also heat embossed the sentiment with a glitter EP.

Well thats it for me tonight, I have to get up bright and early for work tomorrow but I will be adding more during the week!

Hugs to all my Sistahs out there!
