Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 26....

It Sassy Cheryl Tuesday.. Yippie!!! Head over for another fabulous challenge at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is "Polka Dots". FUN!! We had a bunch of fabulous entries last week again. Love all the different ideas. This week I thought I'd go with a Halloween theme. Isn't this image CUTE? His name is "Crab Apple".

I swear it takes me longer to find the name of the image then it does to make the card some times. I need to remember to write it on the back when I print it out. Luck for you I linked it.. :O)

I also made up the saying again and thought I'd share that with you. Click on the link below to go to my account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like it. Thanks!

What do you think of the Butterfly border? Cool right! It's a new EK Success border punch. I think it's my new Favorite. It punches that cool border strip and all the butterflies and tiny flowers. Ok I didn't save them, but I wanted to. I have enough saved stuff.

The cool saying is from TLC. Love going there. Hope you have a great Monday... Friday will be here again soon... :O)

Simply Betty Challenge....

Happy Sunday everyone.. Hope your having a fun filled weekend. While blog hopping I came across a new challenge that will be starting Sept. 15th called Simply Betty Challenges. They are currently having a DT call for their challenge site. So I thought I'd give it a try. I've seen these cute images around blog land but hadn't picked any up until now. Really cute!!

I have also used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. They always have wonderful sketches to try. The prize this week is a $10 gift certificate to KLM Designs. Having been on their DT before I know they have super images!!

I think I'll go watch some Dexter before it gets too late. Oh and maybe something to eat breakfast was a long time ago. Have a fabulous day!!!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge #42...

This week's challenge is "Your a Star, Baby!" over at the Kraftin Kimmie Blog. Since I already had this cute image of  Aurora already colored thought I'd give it a go. She was actually my test glitter project for an up coming class at MOT, but I couldn't get the tail right. I finally resorted to stickles. That's not what I wanted but it really sparkles. So much for embossing powder and glitter. I couldn't get that to work at all. Although it does have a nice texture too it.

I made up the sentiment with PSP and thought I'd try sharing it this time. We'll see if I set the whole thing up right... Click on the link below to go to my account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like it. Thanks!

Hope your having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by..

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 25....

Happy Tuesday everyone.

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is "Stitching" faux or really. I thought I'd try some really stitching this time. Not to bad for the first time. I usually just grab my pen it's so much faster, but hey even I can try something new on occasion.

My image is called "Dancing Mr. Santa". Isn't he cute? His big butt in the air and all. I found those great snowflakes on my scrap pile I must have gotten them out for something else and never used them. Love that. Using something up. Even the paper was left over from my weekend watercolor class.

Hope your having a great day and you'll find some time to join the challenge this week. Thanks for stopping by!!

Magnolia Stamp Club...

Wow don't you just love the Magnolia stamp club? So many stamps for a cheap price I think. I've used three of them on this card. They were all super cute! I think I've only missed getting a couple of the kits since I found out about it. I usually forget about it until they send out there reminder newsletter saying hey you better go get one before it's too late.. :)

I'm still sort of patiently waiting for the new Bon Voyage collection to arrive at my local store so I can pick those up. Hopefully soon.. I've been saving up my class money for those and the new Spellbinder dies. Those are super cool too!

Hope your all enjoying your day. Thanks for stopping by.. Wish me luck at work today.. YUCK!!

In The Summer Time....

Thought I'd join the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge again this week. This week happens to be "In the Summer Time". Pretty fitting with all the sun we are currently having. At least here on the Oregon Coast for now. I have used one of the girls from the Glam Gang called Uptown Angel. Isn't she a doll? I have a bunch of the new Goth Angles colored but they didn't seem to fit the theme at least not the way I colored them. Maybe next time.

I had the beautiful sunny paper in my scrap pile. Love that!!

I'm of to play some more. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 24....

Hey everyone sorry I'm late posting today. Hope your having a fabulous day! Thank you for stopping by today. We have a wonderful new challenge for you over at the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog. Hosted by Cathy. It's a Color Challenge "Black & White with Pink embellishments". Thank you Cathy for a great challenge. I rummaged through my scrap pile and found all this pretty pink and I'd already colored my cute image. "Flower Child". So it all went together pretty quickly.

Cheryl has had some request's to make some of the girl image into boy images so you can find some of those this week. Pretty cool!! I have this week off from work so I'm off to get next month's card classes ready, then off to Eugene to Michael's to see if I can't live with out anything.. :)

Well hey everyone. Thanks for stopping by!!! My husband and I had a Rockin time last night watching Billy Idol. Super fun. Fun two night in one week. WOW!! Today I'm just relaxing and cleaning up my scrap room a bit. I finally managed to put my Magnolia wedding collection away in the binder. Those have been sitting out forever and taking up space. I think I need to go through some of my stuff and have a sale or stop shopping.. ?? Ok that will never happen the shopping part. I love all that new stuff I see at the stores and on line too. So I guess I need to organize some more. Maybe throw out the million and two magazines I have they take up a whole shelf. We'll see.. But not today...

Thought I'd use of some left over scraps from yesterday class on my card today and join a couple of challenges. I've had this image colored forever, but haven't had time to make him up. So today was the day when I seen the challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps was "It's a Boy" and I can use him in the Tickled Pink Stamp Monthly Challenge. Since you can now use any stamp from a line they sell. Even if it's not in stock.Which Jack is not because they are having a sale and he's gone for now. The challenge over there is a sketch this time.

I'm not to sure I like the whole thing, but I just couldn't bring myself to added some flowers and butterflies.. :) It's suppose to be for a boy.. So have a great day I'm off to color some more and maybe watch a movie.

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog # 23....

Ok how did you all do on the challenge last week over at the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog? How did you like stumping Cheryl? Pretty fun right. Did you guess them all right. I tried but it was really hard. Here is the card I made... Was this the one you guessed for me? If not that's ok I don't mind.

This weeks challenge is to make an altered notebook. When I got ready to make this on Sunday I had no notebook. So off to town I went to pick one up. Of course the scrapbook store was closed so I had to do with a cheap one from Freddie's. Of course that's not what I wanted. But oh well that's what I get for not paying attention to my supplies.

Isn't this a fabulous image? It's called "A Crabby Surprise". I love that crab. Cute!! Hope you'll find some time this week to join us!! I'd love to see your notebook...

Lil Lolita Challenge #8...

Happy Sunday everyone... I don't know where the time went to this week. It just kind of slipped by with out me getting any crafting done. Oh well I'll get caught up again I'm sure. I did manage to get this Lil Lolita image colored so I could play along with this weeks challenge over at the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge. I have used one of the new cuties 20's Evie. Another fabulous release of new images. This weeks challenge is Christmas in July. Fun! I can mark another Christmas card off my list.

The fabulous sentiment I picked up at Elegant WordArt2. It wasn't a freebie but a Christmas set of saying. I'm sure I'll be using the rest in the future. I have more Christmas cards to make that's for sure.

I'm off to see if I can get some more stuff colored. Maybe one for the Kenny K challenge. Using one of there new releases called Gothik Anglez. Super Sassy & Sexy.. I have to color one of those for sure..

Have a fabulous day!!!
