Well everyone, Halloween is here and this is my last card for this holiday. I am entering it in to Your Special Delivery Challenge and Stamping For The Weekend Challenge. My image is a freebie from the challenge called Franny and I colored it with my copics. I used my Halloween stacks that have great backgrounds. I found a cute Halloween bag by Jolee's and also flocked spider web lace by We R Memory Keepers to use as embellishments. I also used a little glitter glue for some sparkle and Fiskars zing your things dots for my corners.

Happy Halloween everyone! I have a really cute card for today that will be entered in to a few challenges. Stamp Something Challenge asked for something cute and fuzzy so here it is! Friday Sketchers has a sketch to follow. I found a couple of new sites. Sophisticat Challenge wants us to use the colors pink & brown and also use flowers. The Cuttlebug Challenge theme is "Your Favorite". I love to sing in the rain and the shower... Well I think I covered the themes for all of these challenges. My papers are from K&Co and my images are from Peachy Keen Stamps. I colored my image with copic markers and added some glitter. I used two of my Cuttlebug embossing folders on two of my papers for texture. I made some paper flowers and also used two Prima Flowers. A few pearls, a piece of ribbon, a heart pin and some Dream Girl yarn completed my creation. What do you think?

Well, I just finished another card and this one will be entered in Michelle Perkett's Challenge and the La La Land Crafts Challenge. My papers are from various stacks. I used my new snow globe stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps and added an image of a fairy by Michele Perkett. The La la land Challenge said to use ribbon. After coloring my images with copic markers, adding glitter and a sentiment, I made two slits in the base of the snow globe and created a pretty ribbon sculpture. I also added a couple of satin ribbon flower bows and some paper flowers. A few flower rhinestones in the corners completed my creation.

Hi everyone. It is Friday and I am looking forward to the weekend. I just finished another creation and this one took some time to complete. I am entering it in Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge. The theme is to create something using a fancy card fold. I used a stamp that I just purchased of a Snow Globe and added an image of Bronte & Bella skating. This was my first pop-up card and I had a lot of fun with it. As my card base I used metallic card stock from DCWV. I used some papers from A Country Christmas stacks. I used my Cuttlebug to cutout and emboss on the front of my card. I added some paper flowers with pearl centers that I made to the front of the card. I used the Let It Snow verse but changed the last word. Take a look to see what I mean. On the inside I finished the verse and created my pop-up. I colored my images with Copic markers and added some glitter glue for sparkle. I made my own icicles using Scribbles 3D paint called glittering crystal and added 2 snowflakes. So, what do you think?

Here is a card that I am entering in The Peachy Keen Challenge. I made this card last week but it fits the theme perfectly. The theme was to use a haunted house, a bat, a ghost and a Halloween saying. I used papers from my Halloween stash. I found a great haunted house image online and colored the background with my copics. I cutout the ghost from my card stock and added a little glitter glue for some highlights. I used foam squares to make my ghost pop off the paper. I used a couple of stick on sentiments, a handmade flower with a stamped spider and a few color contrasting pearls. I think it looks pretty spooky, what about you?

Hi everyone. I just finished another creation and this one is for The Just Magnolia Challenge and The Color Dare Challenge. Just Magnolia gave us a sketch to follow and Color Dare gave us three colors to use on our creation shown here. My papers are from various stacks and I used a couple of my Cuttlebug embossing folders for texture. My image is Tilda and I chose her because she looks so sweet holding a rose. I used layering with my image and colored her with Copic Markers. Two of my flowers are Prima Flowers and the other is a silk flower with a metal flower embellishment in the center. I used my Martha Stewart Lace Punch and added a little glitter to complete my card.

The Pink Elephant's theme is black, hardware & distressing. I added some purple and white along with black. Simon Says Challenge is All That Sparkles. Cute Card Thursday's challenge is drinks or cocktail theme. My grape image is from LucyGardens.com and my wine glass is actually a real picture of a glass of wine that I converted to a drawing in Photoshop CS4.

Hi again everyone. I found two new Challenges. One on Paper Craft Planet and this one is for Michelle's Enchanted Inspirations. This is a new challenge and Michelle, who is so talented, provided a freebie digital image of a fantasy witch. I also found another challenge called Crafty Creations Challenge and they are looking for a Halloween creation. I decided to make a Trick or Treat Bag using Michelle's image. My candy corn bag was found at www.InternetFamilyFun.com . My image was colored with my Copic Markers and glitter glue. I attached it to my bag and added some curling ribbon along with some candy and my creation was done. So what do you think?

Hi everyone. I finished another card last night and this one is for The Simon Says Challenge. The theme is Get Well and it so happens that I was going to make a get well card for a friend.

Hi everyone again. I just finished another creation and this one is for The Winter Wonderland Challenge and also Mo's Digital Challenge. The theme for Winter Wonderland is Christmas Stocking and for Mo's Challenge it is anything but a card so instead of a card I made a Christmas ornament. I found chipboard in the shape of a Christmas ornament and covered it with papers from K&Company. The image I chose is from Mo's Digital Pencil called Hanging Stockings so I thought this fit the theme. I colored my image on the front of the ornament with my copic markers and cut it out. I added some flocked lace called Christmas Snowflakes by We R Memory Keepers. I also added a Christmas Tree and stocking stickers by Jolee's. On the back of the ornament I used a stamp and added part of the Night Before Christmas story about the stockings. I used two more stickers and a little glitter glue to complete my ornament. This can be hung on a tree or in a window for the Holidays...

Good Morning everyone... Today so far I have a creation that I entered in "There's Magic in the Air Challenge". The image is a freebie from Nina and the challenge is to use the image provided "Harvest Geese" and use pop dots or foam squares to make a 3-D element on your project "pop" and use the theme Fall. My papers are from K&Company. To make my images pop I used foam squares under the cutout pumpkins and two fence sections. I punched out some fall leaves from watercolor paper and colored them with Color Box Chalks. I also use a Cuttlebug embossing folder with swirls to give my leaves some depth. Then I wet them and shaped them a little so they were not flat. I used my Nestabilities die to cutout the frame around my image and added some velvet leaf ribbon from Making Memories. I used sandpaper around my papers and turned over one corner and added a small brad to secure it. I little glitter and my card was complete!
