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'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!)

I am a follower of these blogs and I have all my badges in alphabetical order here

Thanks for stopping by! :)
