365 Cards: Day 331 - Word Wednesday

Did you miss me!?! lol ;) This is the last card I'm doing today. I'm just so wicked excited about 365 Cards! Can you tell?!? lol

So this is the final card for today:
This is a Dilly Beans image called #531 - Ginger Set. Truth be told, I won this and two other sets from Dilly Beans, I think, maybe, back in January. I've been so busy what first with school, then illness, then becoming DT Coordinator for Fitztown and then DT member for DigiStamps4Joy, plus GD for Beccy's Place and House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenges but most recently, feeling wicked sorry for myself and having a heap of pity parties and not wanting to invite anyone, I've been keeping to myself and crafting to make myself feel better. Sometimes it works... sometimes it don't. So anyway... I colored these images months ago but didn't get around to putting them together until recently. Isn't it a wicked cute set!?! Of course, image is colored with Copic markers and the paper is from my stash but the ribbon is newer. It's a silk burgundy ribbon from Raisin Boat. I LOVE their silk ribbons! :) This is for Day 331 - Word Wednesday and the word is Thankful. I'm cutting this one kinda close cause Mr. Linky expires in THREE days! :-|


I am a follower of this blog and I have my badge here. I'm gonna have to study the blog a bit more. I read something about prizes for weekly super stars or something like that. I like prizes! :) Who doesn't, right?!?

Thanks for stopping by and this is gonna be it for me... for today anyway. :)

365 Cards: Day 352 - Word Wednesday

Boy howdy! I wish I'd paid better attention to this awesome challenge blog I finally got to reading about last night! I'm talking about 365 Cards! I've always meant to post a card a day to my blog but I tell you... it's just not as easy as it sounds! lol ;) This challenge blog has words to inspire and even sketch challenges! I think I'll be playing along with them lots more after today! :)


So here's my next card:
This is another JadeDragonne freebie I got off from her FB page... but like I wrote earlier... it might have been from her DeviantArt page, too. My chemo has fried my brain! :-\ The challenge is Day 352 - Word Wednesday and the word of the day is NEW. I took this to mean new beginnings or new items. The image is colored with Copic markers and most of the supplies, believe it or not... are NEW! I bought these feathers recently for another project. The flowers and keys were recent gifts from two different friends. The ribbon is from my long hoarded stash and the sentiment is from Raisin Boat's No Loss for Words clear stamp set. 

I am a follower of this blog and I have my badge here.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

365 Cards: Day 354 - Me, Myself and I

I'm back! ;) lol So this is a challenge right up my sleeve! It's all about me! I love it!


Here is my card:
This is a JadeDragonne freebie I got off from her FB page... but it might have been from her DeviantArt page, too. I done forgot! lol Me and my fried brain. I think this card has lots of ME in it! It is colorful! It is expressing affection and love. It is happy! If that's not me all wrapped up in one, I do not know what is! ;) lol As always, image is colored with Copic markers and all supplies used are from my long hoarded stash.

Again, this is for 365 Cards Day 354 - Me, Myself and I challenge. I am a follower of this blog and I have my badge here.

Thanks so much for stopping by again! ;) lol

365 Cards: Day 360 - Anything Goes

You know, let me tell you, I don't even know how to get started with this! lol I've often wanted to play along with 365 Cards but I didn't ever really take the time to read the guidelines. From the get go, I kinda just thought it was a daily challenge and I would only get one day to make the card and post it. Imagine my surprise last night when I saw on the Mr. Linky gadget... if that's what he's called... cause that's what I call him! lol I saw that for this challenge I had six days so then I scrolled on further down and I saw that on the rest of them I had like 30+ something days. At first, I thought it was a mistake! But I scrolled further down and I saw that several read like that. So... I'm gonna give it a try and see what happens. :) lol Wish me luck!

Here is my card for this challenge, which is one of those awesome challenges we all love! It's an Anything Goes:
I'd colored this image up during the summer but did not get the opportunity to put it together until recently. It's a Whimsie Doodles stamp called Lollipop Girl. Of course, she's colored with Copic markers and all the supplies used are from my long hoarded stash.

I am a follower of this blog and I have my badge here

I'm off to get a couple more done! See if I'm right or there is a typo. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by! :)

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #160 Use Silver / Gold

Boy howdy! Are you into your Christmas cards yet? I always tell myself I'm gonna get started early. I always fail myself! :( I'm gonna stop telling myself that! lol 

Here's ONE of my Christmas cards:
This is for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #159 Use Silver / Gold. I've used Warm Reception House Mouse (HM) stamp. I colored the image with Copic markers. The silver is in the ribbon. I colored the lantern silver and also colored the sky a grayish silver looking snowy day sky. lol You know what I mean! I lived up north for many years and this is how I remember the sky looking on cold, snowy days. 

After all that, it is with a heavy heart I'm letting you know this is my final project as Guest Designer for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. 

To be honest, before creating my first project with a HM stamp, I've really just used them for decorative purposes! lol I kid you not! I purchased these because I loved the images and had every intention of using them. As it is with all hobby enthusiasts, I got carried away purchasing ALL sorts of other stamps. Once they overtook my office space, I unmounted all other stamps but not my HM mouse! These made for such a pretty display. I've had some of my stamps for many years! It wasn't until this year that I decided to use the Bewitching Pumpkins because I thought it would make a great Halloween card for a friend and I was right! :) 

Now that I've used FIVE of my HM stamps, I've got to keep the momentum up! Especially since of late, I've mainly used digital images because I'm a DT member on some design teams for digital stamps. Using the HM stamps was even more fun because it involved rubber stamping! I hadn't done that in so long and had forgotten how much fun it is!

So with a sad heart, I bid adieu and hope to see you on a future HMFMC challenge. I plan to keep playing along with them! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Release at DigiStamps4Joy

Here is my super, happy Sunday Release card from DigiStamps4Joy. I love this image! It's called Ms. Pop-up and I think she makes for a great "Hi, how you doing?" kinda card! I can't wait to send her to someone.
Here's my card:
I've used a paper pad from Cosmo Cricket called Material Girl / Garden Variety Double Deck. I love this paper pad! The colors are so happy and cheerful. I like it so much, I've made another card with this same paper pad but I can't show it to you till December 11th. haha ;) The lime green silk ribbon is from Raisin Boat. I colored the image with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment with an unknown alphabet stamp set and thought these could mimic the "popping" up being being thrown on the card randomly. I think it came out superb! ;) lol

I'd like to enter this card into these three challenges:
Challenge #7 - Anything Goes (I couldn't figure out how to link directly to the challenge. The blog is pink on pink and this old lady could not make out some of the links! :( Gosh, I hope this doesn't mean I've got to throw in the towel and quit playing in challenges!) at 4 Krafty Girlz / Crafty Girls Challenge (I'm not sure what they call themselves. On Paper Playful they are listed as 4 Krafty Girlz, as is the web address but on their blog, the banner and badges read Crafty Girls. I'm confused by it all! It's finally happened! :'( I'm becoming an old ditzy woman!)

Sassy Studio Designs Progressive Challenge

I made this card for the Sassy Studio Designs Progressive Monthly Challenge #6. That's weird! I thought last month's challenge was number six but oh, well! This was for a CHALLENGE! Use non-traditional colors on a white on white. I have a super hard time with white on white. Non-traditional colors was a cinch but then that was pretty much it for this crafter. White on white is just not my cup of tea! :( But I gave it my best shot, because isn't that what a challenge is all about? 

Here's my card:

All paper supplies and pearl beads used are from my stash and I hand wrote the sentiments. The holly leaves are from a Spellbinders die cut. I dabbed these with Stickles Glitter Glue in Diamonds to make these pop out a little. White silk ribbon is from Raisin Boat. I colored the image with Copic markers. This is Santa Pin-up from Sassy Studio Designs. It's this month's freebie for the progressive challenge over at Paper Craft Planet but I told you that already. :) lol

Thanks for stopping by!

You really don't have to add much more to the card! I did use some football-textured BG paper because I. Had. To! HAD.

Gingerbread Release at Beccy's Place

Here I am with my final post as a GD for Beccy's Place. What a bittersweet post. I'm saddened that it's my last but I've had such fun with the sets I've used and I especially liked this one!

I immediately remembered a project I've had in mind for years and I thought this set fit the project perfectly!

Here's my thought on that:
A closer look from the front:
A closer look at the images:


One word... seriously... one word... SWEET! :) 

Winter holidays are the only time of year my Hershey joins me in the kitchen. She needs recipes as did I when I was a younger cook. We usually prop up the recipe cards here and there and almost always lose our placement but not this year! 

I've seen this project years ago but kept putting it off. When I saw the Gingerbread Set I received from Beccy Muir, I knew exactly what to make with it. 

I made the mistake of putting off painting the cookie sheet till the last minute and then we had a cold front come in. That sidelined the painting idea really fast. So I did my next favorite thing to do. I Mod Podged. :) lol I used tissue paper because I thought it would make more of a snowing looking background. What a nightmare! It sticks REALLY well! But as I've often written, my momma didn't raise no quitter so I kept at it until I got it done. :)

Trying to photograph the project was a nightmare in of itself. I used matte Mod Podge but I could NOT keep it from having a glossy look to it every which way I photographed it! I was about to toss in the towel and print up the images and make a card. I make cards so much better! ;) Hershey and some of her girlfriends arrived and squealed and oohed and aahed the project, I had to keep it. She actually took it home with her! I didn't have the heart to tell her I meant to use it here when we cook our Thanksgiving dinner. We don't really do Christmas. Long story!

So this is how I put my project together:
Copic markers to color the images
Organza white frilly ribbon from Hobby Lobby
Rhinestone tape from Michael's Craft Store
Silk red ribbon from Raisin Boat
Tissue paper and Mod Podge and lots of it! ;)
Unknown gingerbread buttons 

I'd like to "Show It Off" at Create with TLC's Show It Off Sunday! I list all my badges in alphabetical order here

I sure do hope you will hop on over to Beccy's Place and see what the other girls made with the set! I'm sure there's GOBS of ideas you will see that may inspire you to run out and get your own set. I am actually printing some images off again to make those cards I thought of doing earlier. I want to use non-traditional colors, like pink and turquoise. I've a hankering for these colors. ;) lol

Thanks for stopping by! 

FitzTown Challenge #14 - Monochromatic

Am I spelling that right? Monochromatic? I suppose so! Spell check didn't kick on! Ha!

FitzTown Challenge Blog (FCB) is kicking off their Challenge #14 - Monochromatic. I. Love. These! They are so easy to pull together! It's ALL shades of ONE color! Love! It! Did I say that already? ;) lol Just in case... llluuuuuvvv it! :)

Here's my card:
Fabulous right!?! lol ;) I'm getting pretty full of myself, I'm afraid but lately, my cards have been coming out just as I have "Ema-gined" them and they usually don't! :-\ So I have good cause to be happy about how they come out! :-D

So I've colored the Fae 6 image with Copic markers and it's easy to tell you the colors I've used! It was V01, V04, V05, V06, V09, V12, V15, V17 and BV000. I threw that last one in just to shake things up a bit! Ha! You can find the image here. I used a silver gel pen to highlight her earrings. The sentiment is from Fairy Wishes from StampArt Design by Kathryne at Whimsy Stamps. I dabbed Stickles Glitter Glue in Crystal on anything I could because we all know, Stickles makes EVERYTHING so much prettier! I matted the image with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles SM. BG card stock is from StoryTellers Club. You know, they call this paper patterned paper but it's thick! I call it card stock and that's probably why some gals look at me like I'm a nut when I do this because it's PP! Until today, I didn't know that! I'm still gonna call it card stock and have people look at me like I'm a nut! ;) lol Everything else, organza ribbon, rhinestone and flowers are from my long-hoarded stash.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:

I am a follower of these blogs and I have badges displayed in alphabetical order here.

Hope you'll come join us for the current challenge at FCB! We'd love to see what you do!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Release at DigiStamps4Joy!

This week's Sunday Release image from DigiStamps4Joy is called Agent Alexis. I took that to mean "Secret Agent". :) lol So I went with that type of theme. Since she's into top secret kinda documents, surely, she's crumpling paper if not shredding it and then getting blown up or shot at! So here's my interpretation of a secret agent card:
Ha! When I attached the last metal eyelet, I realized, these don't look like bullet holes! They look like what they are... sunbursts! lol I thought they might could pass for bullet holes. They still do in my "Ema-gination"! Ha! I've had the song "Secret Agent Man" stuck in my head all afternoon! :-\ Really, "Secret Asian Man" because when I heard this song originally, I swear that's what they were singing and for years that's how I sang it! lol You know you did too! ;) haha Well, actually, I've had the song stuck in my head since Friday afternoon because that's when I picked up the image. Please, pity me! lol I thought it would make a good masculine card. Maybe even one for a secret crush! Now to find me one. ;) haha

I'd like to enter this card into these three challenges:
I am a follower of all three challenges and have their badges displayed here.

Digi Darla's Challenge #89 Copy Cat with a Twist

I found me another freebie challenge blog! lol *blush* I'm shameless I tell you! 

Here's my card:
This is for Digi Darla's Challenge #89 Copy Cat with a Twist. I'll be honest. I cannot figure out what it means about "Copy Cat". I've read over all there is to read and I just don't get it. I guess I must have it explained to me like I'm a six-year old! :-\ I do know, it cannot be a square so I got that part down cold! ;) lol Nonetheless, this cornucopia was the freebie and I really like it! So I had to jump on it! I hope I win! I saw some adorable images I'd like to have!

I've colored the image with Copic markers. I used a We-R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Mini Flower Punch to create the base of the card. All the other supplies are from my long-hoarded stash. I've been using nothing else and let me tell you. I'm sick of the stash! lol I've got a LONG ways to go before I finish it too! :( The Autumn Blessings sentiment was a freebie from StampArt Design by Kathryne about a month ago. :) 

Thanks for stopping by!  

Creative Freebie Challenge November 17 - 30

This is my card for the current The Outlawz Challenge November 17-30. It's a beautiful image! It's a butterfly so I HAD to fussy cut and add wire antennas. Had! To! :)
Here's my card:
The BG paper is from Bazzill and for the life of me, I cannot remember the name of the collection. :( All other supplies are from my stash. I colored the image with Copic markers. It's photographing orange but in real life, it's more of a tannish brown and matches the background paper! What can I tell you? I've got some super crummy lighting and no camera. I have to use my iPhone and it doesn't do justice to my cards. I sure do hope Santa will bring me a camera this year! :)

Thanks for stopping by! 

Kite Cards

Just wanna share some cards I made for a swap on FB with some... what I like to call... imaginary friends! ;) lol These are online friends and I talk to them, feel for them, they are part of my life and I know they are there but I never see them. Get it? ;) lol No challenges, no links to share other than where you can get the images. This is all about the cards and me. :)

We're doing an alphabet swap. We're up to the letter K and the theme was kite. Here are the cards:
 This image is from Some Odd Girl and called Kite Flyin' Mae.
This image is a freebie from Tuesday Coloring Pages called Kite Flying.
Images are colored with Copic markers and all supplies are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Rick St. Dennis November Freebie

Are you noticing a theme? Yup! I like freebies! lol I think it's only polite to make a card when offered a freebie. I don't always get to follow through but I do my best!

So here's today's final card:
Isn't she the cutest mouse? I love the image! This is Priscilla Pilgrim and you can find her at Rick St. Dennis Digital Stamp store on Zibbet. This card is for Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St. Dennis EDT Blog. I'm participating in the November Freebie Challenge. All supplies are from my long-hoarded stash but you should know that by now! ;) lol I colored the image with Copic markers. 



Thanks for stopping by and this is it for today. I did make five more cards on Saturday but these are for future posts. :) So be sure to come back! ;) lol

Gerda Steiner Fifth Freebie Design Challenge

I'm back! Did you miss me? ;) lol Here is my third card:
This is for Gerda Steiner's (GD) Fifth Freebie Design Challenge. So long as you are signed up for her newsletter, you will receive a freebie to participate in the challenge. I think that's how I remember it works. Anyway, this is this month's freebie, adorable little snowman image! GD calls it Cute Snowman but I think he's adorable! Sweet image but it makes me go brrrr... ;) lol I'm nowhere close to ready for winter. I'm struggling with the cool temps of the fall season! ALL supplies I've used are from my stash. I punched snowflakes and layered them to give the appearance of flowers. Ha! I liked the idea! :)

Thanks for stopping by... again! ;)

This card is for the monthly challenge at From the Heart Stamps. Faith Skrdla will gift you a digital image for each month you participate in the challenge. Isn't that way generous of her?!?

Just Some Lines Monthly Challenge - Add 3 Embellies

I'm here today with a heap of posts! This is the first of four, I think. 

I spent all day Saturday from 8 AM to midnight, yup, that's ALL day at a crop with my friend, Maria.com. I like to call her that because we met online. ;) lol Anyway, we, or I should say, she was invited to an all day crop by her husband's co-worker. Of course, she dragged me along. Not that I kicked or screamed too much. Just a tid bit. I'm not 100% myself these days but I thought the time out would maybe help a bit. I did have tons of fun and of the 10 projects I hoped to complete, I finished 9 of them! Woohoo! :) Five are for future posts but today there will be four of them!
Here's the first one:
This is the monthly freebie from Just Some Lines (JSL). JSL is having their monthly challenge and a freebie is offered to play along. I was lucky enough to have won at a past JSL challenge and I have the most adorable image! But I also liked this one and I thought I'd save the image I won for a challenge I really need one! :) The monthly challenge asks for using three (or more) embellishments and I did. I used a pom pom ribbon, rhinestone butterflies and flowers with beaded centers and these are all from my stash. The paper is from Fancy Pants Designs Celebrate by Michelle Coleman line. I LOVE this paper! I'd been hoarding it for the longest time but it occurred to me, it might be best to use the paper so I can buy new paper I can hoard! ;) lol I colored the image with Copic markers. For the life of me, I cannot remember where the sentiment is from but it is also a digital image. So sorry about that! I hate visiting blogs that won't tell me where they got the stuff they are using so I try my best to tell you where I picked up the stuff I've used but I cannot find the file in my thousands of digis! :( 

I do thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll leave a comment so I'll know you were here! :)

HMFMC #158 My Favorite Things

Hey bloggers! This is my project for the current House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge (HMFMC) #158 My Favorite Things
The card SCREAMS my favorite things... all things autumn... rhinestones... and House Mouse Stamps! How much better than that can it get, I ask you? This is Turning Over a New Leaf and shouldn't EVERY day be like that?!? ;) I've colored the image with Copic markers. Printed card stock is from StoryTellers. Oops! That's another favorite! I love their printed card stock! Ribbon, plain card stock and rhinestones are from my stash. The sentiment itself is the way I love to approach life as well. Each day might bring on a little trouble or burden but so long as you remember what brings a smile to your face and peace in your heart, it's all good! 

I hope to see you over at HMFMC for their current challenge. We'd love to see what all are YOUR favorite things!

Thanks for stopping by!

Creative Freebie Challenge November 3 - 17

This is my first time to join in on the fun over at The Outlawz Challenges! I'm playing along with the Creative Freebie Challenge. I received two images and my plans were to make one project with each image but as it seems to be the case for me lately, I just ran out of time! I did color both images but was only able to get one of them onto a card base and I love how it came out! When don't I?!? lol ;)


Here's my card:
I think I went a little crazy with the flames! Ha! I still like how it came out though. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Progressive Monthly Challenge #6 at SSD

I made this card for the Sassy Studio Designs Progressive Monthly Challenge #6. Perfect, super cute image for an autumn theme. Love it! I think it makes for a great belated fall birthday card. Doesn't she look like she's embarrassed about getting caught doing something wrong? Forgetting birthdays is just WRONG! I should know! I do it all the time! :-O

Here's my card:
All supplies used are from my stash and I hand wrote the sentiment. I colored the image with Copic markers. This is Scarecrow Honey from Sassy Studio Designs. It's this month's freebie for the progressive challenge over at Paper Craft Planet but I told you that already. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Fitztown Challenge #13 Paper Piecing

Hi all! This is my DT card for Challenge #13 Paper Piecing at Fitztown Challenge Blog (FCB). I love paper piecing! It allows me to add so much more detail to the image!


Here's my card:
Check out all the detail! I used flocked paper for the tree. I then used embellishments to mimic the ornaments on the design. I love how it came out! The image is Winter 4 from the Winter Collection at Fitztown.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
