I based my card on sketch #77. I used the free digi Wednesday image available from http://stretchnbubbles.blogspot.com/ for my card. I shrunk the image down to the smallest size I could get it down to then printed it out three times. I then colored them in with my copics to give them just a hint of color. I inked the edges of my papers with a distreesing ink. My cardstock and DP and sentiment are all from PTI.

Here is my entry for this weeks Mojo Monday. I used my little Chick A Dee from Stretch N' Bubbles. Isn't she cute! She is a digi image that Alison has created and is available over at http://stretchnbubbles.blogspot.com/ . I printed her out on some patterned paper from PTI. I then cut out her flower from a duplicate image and colored that and her nose and feet in with my copics. I added coordinating papers and ribbon (also from PTI) along with a flowery button to match her flower. Have a good one!

Hello! Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at the Play Date Cafe http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/ If you haven't given them a try you really should this week. Allison is sponsoring this weeks challenge and she has some really cool digi images over at her blog http://stretchnbubbles.blogspot.com/ even some freebies to try. This is one of them. I love this little tree I cut out the heart and the star and popped them out with pop-ups. I gave the star some shine with liquid gloss and sprinkled some glitter on top. I wanted to make this card look just clean and simple. My sentiment is from PTI's Winter Swirls. Have a good one! :)

Happy Snowy Afternoon!
Well I loved the sketch and just had to give it a go! All papers and stamps are from PTI. I cut out my poinsettias and used pop-ups for dimension my sentiment is also from the same stamp set (peaceful poinsettias). I like taking pictures in the natural light my cards look so much better! It's so dark out and inside because of all the snow we are getting! Anyway hope you like my card! Have a good one!

Its been about a week since I posted anything I was working on another project that required my full attention for a bit. Then I went to Boston for the weekend to visit my friend we had so much fun and now it's back to the grind and Christmas is only three weeks away! Yikees!
I found out while I was away that my card was chosen for "chic of the week" over at http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/ YEAH! and Wow! I was so happy :). Anyway... here is a Christmas card I made with one of my Tim Holtz stamps I just stamped him with Dark chocolate from PTI onto Kraft card stock and framed him with an EK border punch that looks like a postage stamp and layered him over a background paper I made. I love how it looks vintage. Have a good one!

Well this is my entry in the Just Us Girls color challenge and yes it is a challenge for me! I would never think to put light blue with orange and Terra cotta. You know what? It actually looks good together. LOL! That's what I like about a color challenge it forces me to step outside my box. Anyway all my papers and stamps are from PTI. The new terra cotta ink stays wet awhile so I was able to emboss it with the clear filigree embossing powder. My punches for my sentiment are from Stampin' Up. I hope you like it! Have a good one!

I used the Signature Greeting for my sentimnet My bow what can I say ...I really can't tie a bow to save my soul! LOL! I just ordered a bow easy and I hope it helps! Anyway I used a stamp from Guide lines two and heat embossed it with clear filigree embossing powder then added a few snow flakes in purple to create my patterned paper.

Well I made my first easel card ever! That is the challenge over at the Secret crafters Saturday challenge. I couldn't find a good tutorial for one so I made my own after a little trial and error. They can be made any size just gotta get it to fold right LOL! My computer is so gosh darn slow!!! My card still measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 I just scored my 4 1/4 x 11 inch paper at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 so when it folds down its at a length of 5 1/2 so it still fits in a standard envelope. This is another digi image that I got from All That Scraps. My paper is last years Creative Memories x-mas paper. Have a good one!
