Third Time is a Charm!

I think that's how it goes... right? Third time is a charm? lol I don't know... but this is the third time I am attempting to do more than one challenge with one card... AND... there are three challenges with this card so... :)

This card should fall into place for Some Odd Girl's (SOG) January Challenge... this involves a card sketch and an SOG digi... I've got both covered. :)

The Corrosive Challenge Challenge #165 - Out with the Old calls for using old stuff... well... I think I've written that I am on a hell-bent... excuse the foul language... streak of ridding myself of all my stash... if I have it... I'm using it! Card stock (CS) and printed paper (PP) have been with me since about 2006 - 2007ish... LONG overdue for a card! I KNOW I bought the CS and PP in New Hampshire (NH)! We left NH in the spring of 2008. :-O 

Finally... Artistic Inspiration has Challenge #24 - Anything Goes! Gotta love those! :)

This is the card sketch for SOG's challenge:
I used 70s Kaylee from SOG. I colored the image with both EK Success coloring pencils and Copic marks. I used the coloring pencils for the oranges and purples. The remainder of the image is colored in markers and these are the colors I used:
Browns: E18, E15, E13
Reds: R20, R46, RV69
Yellows: Y13, Y19
Greens: YG41, YG43
Blues: B00, B04
Blacks: N8, N6, N2
Grays: N00
Skin tone and eyes: E00, E11, R20 and E11, E13

Here is the card:
As I wrote earlier, all the CS and PP is from my long-hoarded stash. The sentiment is from a clear stamp set Gals on Flashback Lane from Raisin Boat. I used a Lucky 8 Mini Vine Punch from We R Memory Keepers to make a mat for the side of the card. Aren't these super awesome?!? I love them! These are my newest favorite toys... beats dragging out the Spellbinder and the dies. Love this punch! I'd like to buy all six mini punches but these are $107.94... if you buy these through the Paper Wishes catalog with their special discounted price. I have a thing or two to say about PWs and their discounted prices but I'll tell you about it when I show you my Spectrum Noir markers I recently bought and received yesterday. It's a story that needs telling but not with this post. :-\ 


  1. Wonderful. Can't wait to "hear" all about the new markers & your thoughts on them.Card is real cute- love the coloring. Like I said elsewhere- guess I need to check into that punch.

  2. Super cute card your coloring! Thanks for joining us this week at ARTistic Inspirations~Wendy, DT

  3. Way to multi-task! Love it when one card can cover a couple challenges! lol! This is super cute! Love the smiley faces. Thanks for joining the SOG challenge!

  4. Those happy smiley faces are perfect for this card. Love the colours too. Thanks for playing at SOG. x
