Lacy Sunshine Challenge

It's challenge time at the Lacy Sunshine blog. I used this adorable ladybug image for my card because she looks so much like my daughter, crazy curls and all.

I chose this one as my little peanut is considered a 'ladybug', being in senior kindergarten. Last year she was a bumble bee. And when she moves on to grade one, they are called butterflies. Cute right?

I have found some really fun things for her this year including this adorable paper at Michaels.

Here she is...

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

One for the boys

It's a boy challenge at Penny's Challenges. 

If you haven't been entering into the challenges you are missing out! There have been some fab sponsors and this time is no exception.

This week I got to play along with an image from Crafty Sentiments

Here is my C.A.S. card

I made the sentiment and you can have it to :)

I coloured the image with my copics and changed the font colour in Word to match it.

Penny's challenge runs for one week. Go check out the blog to see what the DT has created and who the other sponsor won't be disappointed ;)

Animal Challenge begins today!

Head on over for an 'animal challenge' at the Clear it out challenge blog.

Our super cool sponsor is MelJen's.  If you a newbie starting out, I highly recommend her digis. Melissa always adds lines to indicate where shadowing should go. This helped me out a lot when I first started :)

Here is the card I made

I had a lot of fun making this little guy :)
To make the background I cut out 2 scallop circles and used the masking technique to make the clouds. The rest was coloured in copic markers.

Head on over to the challenge blog to find out the stash item and don't forget to use it so you can win ;)

It's an Easter challenge...

Head on over to the Melonheadz Challenge and join in the Easter fun!

The DT have made some super cards for you to enjoy.

Here is mine using Australian Bilby Easter Bundle. I love all the images in this one :)

Every digi on my card was pre-coloured. You can chose to get them black/white as well. This card came together super easy. I printed the chick twice and popped it up. The flower I've had in my stash for years.(like maybe 5 or 6). I layered all the images in word which was pretty easy to do.

The kids were out on the weekend doing an Easter egg hunt so it was super easy to get into the spirit. I love seeing them so excited :)  But wow, did they ever bring home some chocolate! I think the Easter bunny can skip our house this year-lol

The challenge runs for two weeks and the winner gets a to chose a bundle from Nikki's Etsy store.

Thanks for stopping by :)

It's challenge time at Lacy Sunshine

The flowers are starting to come out of the ground so this is a perfect challenge for Lacy Sunshine!-add flowers.

I used a cute little digi that looks soooooo much like my daughter. I had other plans for this digi when I got her,but I think it works well here too.

Isn't she cute :) I am not a fan of orange and pink but in the spirit of clearing out my craft room I stumbled across this card base and decided to use it. I coloured her up with my copic markers and added a flower and sentiment to finish it off.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by, enjoy your weekend :)

Penny' s Challenge-All things new

It's challenge time over at Penny's Challenges and the sponsor is the fabulous Lacy Sunshine!

We were allowed to select an image to use and I picked Haley Hydrangia.

I love Spring. It is the beginning of all things new. It's the season of the resurrection of Jesus.

 When I saw it, it looked like Haley was coming up out of the pot, new, blossoming. I knew what I wanted to do.

To me this card represents dying to self, kneeling at the cross and following Jesus. The dead leaves represent the old, the bright flowers represent the new. We are all works in progress. I even thought about what she is looking at. To me the butterfly is the perfect symbol of a person coming to Christ. I think this would make a lovely Baptism card.

Some of you may look at the card and say 'nice card' and not understand what I mean. That's okay, I just wanted to explain how this card came together :)

Penny's challenge runs for one week. The winner gets 3 Lacy Sunshine images.
