2 More challenges! Yayyyy!

Here we go ladies and Gents, I completed 2 more challenges. A sketch challenge from The sweet stop, Sketch challenge Blog & Color Throw down. Oh how fun.
The image that I used is "Missmatched Ketto" From Stamping Bella.
I have been using this image quite a bit. I just love the "Ketto's" from Stamping Bella. To me, they are really fun to color in and I can get them done really quickly. Not to mention, they are totally adorable!
So, onto the creation. I used DP's from Basic Gray and all of my Cardstocks are from Stampin Up! I also use my Nesties in the scallop oval and my Embossing folder in Swiss dots. The stamp sentiment is from "Whimscal word" from Stampin Up! For my final touch, I added some flowers from my stash, I don't work alot with flowers but I like the touch that they add so I may be purchasing more to work with! So, Let me know what you think, I always love to hear my friends comments. Off to create some more so I will be seeing y…

Good evening all, It is now 11:30pm. on Tuesday evening. I am such the late bird. I feel at my most creative late at night, I dont know why. Well, anyways I needed to put together a Birthday card for my sister as her birthday is on the 23rd. and she lives in Virginia so that means I shpould get it out in the mail to her like, hmmm, today? oops, I guess it will be going out in tomorrows mail so I hope she gets it on time.

These are the supplies I used:

I'm on a roll, 2 more!

Woo Hoo, 2 more challenges this week, That makes 4 for me. Yayyyy! I really really love the challenges. Sometimes I get so stuck that the only thing that saves me is a color and/or sketch challenge. For the first of these 2 challenges, It's a color challenge from "Just for fun Rubber stamps" and the colors to use are Red,Kraft&White. Easy Peasy It definitely gave me some practice with my Copics. I used only 2 shades of red on The Greeting Farm Image that I used. They are R39 & R22. I paper pieced 2 of her shopping bags and the other I colored in with a red Spica. Aren't Spicas great? I am all about the sparkle!
For the sketch it is from "Sketch Saturday" . I just love the sketches from Sketch Saturday. Always fun! I added some prima flowers from my stash just to add a little something and I like how they look. I also added lots of red brads. some shinyness(is that how you spell it?) Hmmm? Well, anyways, here is my creation, I hope you enjoy it and I…

2 more challenges, Yayyyyy!

Happy Wednesday everyone. Well, I am trying to get in as many challenges as I can before the weekend. Craig and I are going camping and spending the weekend going to the areas swap meet and yard sales. You know I find lots and lots of stamping supplies at yard sales. Really, You would be surprised at the things that people get rid of. One time I bought a brand new Carl Cutter still in the box for $2.00. For that weekend, that was my best find. I have found some really good deals but shhh, don't tell anyone cause I don't want any competition. LOL!

So with that being said, I wanted to post my creations before the weekend. The first challenge is for "Color Throwdown" and the colors to use are Elegant eggplant, Always artichoke & Soft suede. Once again, Not my normal colors that I would use but that's what I like about these challenges. I am using colors that I wouldn't normally use. The other challenge is from CPS-Cardsketches. You can see my creation below. …

2 more challenges in 1! WOO HOO!

Hello everyone, Well, another 2 challenges in 1. I kinda like doing them that way. I feel like I am getting more done! The sketch is from Mojo Monday and isnt it such a great sketch? The color challenge is from Color Throw down. As far as the color Throw down challenge goes, I was going way outside of the box. These are 3 colors that I never work with so I was totally at a loss as to what to create so I went out on a limb and made a total layered flower out of the 3 colors which are Summer Sun, Old Olive & Tangerine Tango. I used the Stampin Up! Bigza die flower, Daisies #2 and just kept layering. I also die cut the little butterfly from Stampin Up! and added some orange glitter to it. I used my D'vine swirls and swiss dots embossing folders and the Stampin Up! Scallop trim border punch on the white(you can barely see it) For the finishing touch I got into my stash of misc. buttons and added it to the middle of the layered flower. I am really happy with the way this creation…

2 Challenges in 1

Here I have 2 challenges in 1 for you tonight. The first challenge is from "Colour CreateChallenge" and the colors are Hot Pink, Warm Orange & Saffron. Really pretty colors when they are put together. The sketch challenge is from "CPS" Card sketches. I didn't use any stamped images on this one so Sometimes if I don't use an actual image as my focal point, I find it difficult but this was pretty easy. I really liked using my Martha Stewart daisy edge punch. I just love daisies so when I saw this punch, I had to get it! I think it fit rather nicely into this sketch. What do you think?

Well, I am off to work on another challenge so come back soon to see what I have been up to.

A little of this & a little of that

Hello all my blogging friends. I have been quiet busy with a few different projects. Between selecting all of the Wedding photos that I want and birthdays and concerts it has been such a great summer. Busy but great! We go back to school on August 26th. So I am trying to pack as much in as I can before I have to go back to work. So, for my first project, I blinged out my ATG adhesive gun. I didn't even know you could do that until I discovered You Tube tutorials. Thereis so many things to do on You Tube. So check it out, This was your average red ATG gun. I am so happy with the final result. I still want to add a little more bling but I wanted to share what I had done so far. Onto my next project, I had to make a Birthday card for my niece Lexie. She turned 12 and Iwanted to make her a really special card. For the image on this I used one from "The Greeting Farm" I used my Copics and also Paper Pieced her shopping bags. I used my Spicas on her bows and added scrap ribbon…
