Clear it out-Halloween orange

Head  on over to the Clear it Out Challenge blog and join in the fun. This week is the last week for the current challenge Halloween/Orange.

Here is my card using an image from one of the CIO sponsors QKR Stampede

This is actually 2 digis from QKR ; Jack o Lantern balloon and Skeleton balloon holder. I used up some Basic Gray papers, orange stickers that I added Stickles to. I finished it off by using a white gel pen to line the edges.

QKR is just one of our sponsor, go check out the blog to see what else you can win :)
Thanks for stopping in!

It's Digi Darla Day

I've been M.I.A. as I haven't had a camera to post my pictures, but that's about to change! I used up all my Optimum Points (from Shopper's drug mart) and bought a camera-yahoo! Now all I have to do is figure it out-lol

Today at Digi Darla's Challenges the theme is : Fright Night:  Monster Movie Madness

Here is my card using Lil' Witch

Isn't she cute? I printed the sentiment off on my computer, added ribbon and gems. I used the 'spotlighting' technique which I think worked well with the moon :)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to play. The challenge runs for one week and if you win you get 5 free digital images. You can use any image to play but if you use a Digi Darla one you have a chance to win 3 digis, cool!

Can't wait to see what you create :)

It's Digi Darla Day!

Go ink up your Digi Darla digis because it's time to play!!

The challenge this week is to make a card that celebrates the passage of time. Here is my card using Janessa and Kitty-love this line of girls!

(Sorry about the poopy picture. I think I've narrowed down my choice for a new camera-now to convince the hubbie-lol.)

I masked clouds and sponged to make the background. I made the grass by following a tutorial I found on youtube. I think I went a little heavy on the dark green so I may go back and add a medium green to it. Anywho, thank for stopping in and taking a peek at my cards.

The challenge runs for one week and you can win 5 digis! Can't wait to see what you create!

Too cute to spook challenge!

It's challenge time at the Clear it Out Challenge blog. The theme: Halloween, the stash item-use something orange.

I used the image Lil' Witch from Digi Darla Designs. You can find it here.

Isn't she cute? I broke out my Stampin' Up inks and sponged the sky. I used a post it note to make the moon. The sentiment I made on the computer and I added orange gems. My scanner made them look weird but I assure you they are orange-lol. The technique I used to highlight just one part of the image is called 'spotlighting'. Cool huh?

This challenge runs 3 weeks so there is plenty of time to join in. Can't wait to see what you make :)

Happy Thanksgiving Day

Happy Turkey day to you! Here are my thanks....

Today I am thankful because;

 I am the daughter of the King,
 I  am a wife to a funny, kind man,
 I  am a mother to 3 adorable children,
 I am a sister/daughter of a crazy, loving family,
 I have (albeit not many) friends who I love as my second family

Today I am thankful that God has given me so many blessings in my life.
We have food on our table,
We have shelter over our heads
We have love.

I wish you all a Happy Turkey Day, but mostly I wish that you all take a minute and really think about the blessings in your life. I'm sure it will bring a smile to your face :)

Think Pink at the Digi Darla Challenge Blog

Hello blogland :)

Today is Digi Darla Challenge day, woot woot!

Our theme is think pink-sending an encouragement card.

I used the digi called Angel Up. I think this is a perfect digi for these types of cards.

(sorry about the pic still working on getting a new camera)

I coloured her with my copic markers and added stickles to the wings. The flowers were from my stash and I added a pearl gem to them.

Head on over to the challenge and join in, it runs for one week. You could win 5 images of your choice. You don't have to use a Digi Darla image to play but if you do, you can win 3 images!

Good luck, see you next week :)

It's Clear it Out Challenge Day!

So I missed my post yesterday for the Digi Darla challenge, but I do hope you will click on the link to see the awesome inspiration the DT has left there for you :)

Today at the Clear it out challenge blog we are so Thankful and that is our theme! We are also to use up a left over sentiment. As I've written before I tend to fill empty space when printing my digis with sentiments I will use in the future. And then I don't....

So here is my card using a left over sentiment and a great digi from Lacy Sunshine.
Please pardon the picture-my son broke my camera so I will have to scan them for now :(

Isn't she gorgeous? Love, love, love this one!
The challenge runs for 2 weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create! Good luck :)
