Good morning! A long weekend..

But I met my goal for the day LOL  Today it will be getting those posts ready and doing some coloring!

Isn't she beautiful!!  I colored her with my copic markers. I added all the different blooms, some silk leaves. The swirl die cuts are from Memory Box and the one around the image is a Spellbinders die. The circle card was cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I LOVE THAT THING!

Anything Goes @ Delicious Doodles

Good morning and Happy Friday! I got to work from home today Yay! Just in time for a nice long holiday weekend!! I love that!! So, Kevin and I went to a movie today.. we went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy. I really liked it a lot! We watched it in 3D and I thought it was one of the best 3D movies I have seen. Very funny.. very clean! Loved it!!  I'm going to let the kids watch it this weekend if they want to!  Other than that.. home and coloring! I need to get busy! LOL

Today is Challenge #103 at Delicious Doodles and we are on an Anything Goes Challenge. For this challenge I tried to get another Christmas card done :)

For this one I used Holly Fairy which you can find in the Delicious Doodles Shop. I colored her with my Copic markers.. although I almost wish I had used my pencils. I find that the smaller detailed art I tend to color better with my pencils LOL  But here she is in Copic. I decided to color her with differently colored skin. No decoupage this time. I added the red glitter around the edge of the Spellbinder circle die cut. I added white glitter to her wings. All of the papers are from my scraps from last years paper. I also distressed some of the papers edges. The Merry Christmas is a Paper Smooches stamp.

Cuddly Buddly

Good evening everyone!! I am posting this evening a card that I finished today for a DT Call. The DT Call is at Cuddly Buddly. They are looking for a Design Team and the call closes September 1st. Here is what I came up with:

For this card I used Flower Birds by Karen Middleton which you can find at the Cuddly Buddly Shop! I added some flowers and butterflies from my stash. The image and the blue cut behind it was cut with a My Favorite Things Die. I cut feathers from the blue and the feathers are a Spellbinders Die. The other items I added were the lace, gems, pearls, stitching around the edge. I did a bit of decoupage on the image and I tried to take some photos of that as well. The image was colored with my Copic Markers! I also distressed the pink papers.

Winners and DT Favorites and Midway For Challenge #17 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun

Good morning everyone and Happy Saturday!

This morning we have posted the winners and DT Favorites from Challenge #16 and this afternoon you will find the midway post for Challenge #17 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges!  Our theme for Challenge #17 is Last Days of Summer. They surely are the last days too aren't they! Summer is pretty much gone! We have some FANTASTIC Sponsors for Challenge #17... but then we have some great sponsors always!! :)  Here they are:

They are fantastic, aren't they! I love our sponsors.. please be sure to share the love! If it wasn't for their generosity, these challenges would not be as great as they are!

For this card I used an image from our wonderful sponsor KennyK. The image is Inner Tube Girl. I colored her up with my copic markers. I did a bit of decoupage.. I popped the inner tube and rounded it to make it really look round. Then I popped her leg and arm over the edge of it to give it that little bit more depth. The inner tube is covered with Diamond Glaze to give it that shiny plastic look. I added the pool line sticker at the bottom and the water drop stickers as well. These are from my stash from forever ago. I couldn't' even tell you how long I've had them. I added one line of stitching ... you can see it next to the ribbon. All of the papers are from scraps from another card I did. These papers are from Club Scrap. I used some negative butterfly cuts that I had in these papers on the outside and inside. I added the crinkle ribbon, the die cut flowers and gems. The  stamp... well... I have no idea where that stamp is from LOL I think it was a Club Scrap stamp. The leaves are die cuts as well. The flowers are My Favorite Things and Spellbinders... the leaves are Spellbinders. The butterflies are spellbinders as well... I think?  LOL And that will do it for this card.
