Digi Sketch challenge time!

The DT gals are whooping it up over at the Digi Sketch challenge blog with Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor! The theme is 'Make Me Laugh' which is easy to do with Bugaboo. So many great digis to choose from

Here is my card

Because my craft room is being packed up I had limited supplies on hand-perfect for a CAS card! The sentiment just kills me and thought it suited the digi perfect. Coloured her up with my copics and added washi tape and a button for detail.

The challenge runs for one week, I do hope you'll join us. Don't forget there is a theme and a sketch you can chose to do one or both :)  

Melonheadz Friends-challenge time

Well I'm up to my eyeballs in packing, PTA meetings and I went back to work after 7 years. I almost missed making my cards this week but managed to squeeze them in while my kids were bathing-phew!

There is a challenge at Melonheadz Friends this week called Fancy Folds.
Here is a treat bag I made

Super quick and easy to put together using all scraps. In fact the embossed flowers are from a project I started a while ago but never finished. See my procrastination helped me this week-lol

This bag is a perfect way to give a gift card, use a bigger bag and you could put anything in it.

I hope this inspires you to join us. The challenge runs for 2 weeks and if you are new to Melonheadz you can grab a freebie or two at Nikki's blog.

Have a super day :)

Penny's challenge time

What a week!

My kids aren't normally sick, but just days before school started we were battling with pink eye in one child, and high fever in another. Thankfully they were  'cured' and ready to go for school. Now the 3rd little monkey is home sick :(

Thankfully I had made this card a head of time for the challenge at Penny's. The challenge is 'spots and stripes' and one of the sponsor is StampArt by Kathryne :)

Here is what I made

Isn't he just the cutest? I coloured him up with my copics ( E35, E37, R20, W1) I added a little tag that I will fill in once I know this cards destination.

I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge. It's pretty open ended so sky's the limit for your creativity.
Pop over to the blog to check out the other gals cards and to see who the other sponsor is.

Penny's challenge time

It's time for another challenge at  Penny's Challenges! 

The DT have been embossing like crazy, creating some fun cards for you.

Here is mine using one of our sponsors

Not the best picture to see detail. I glittered the flowers, embossed the white card base, and added a ribbon for detail. It was fun to colour up and I tried to be as neutral as possible in my colour choices.

Penny's challenge runs for one week, I can't wait to see what you'll create :) Have a great week!

Melonheadz Challenge

I cannot believe the leaves are turning....well, actually I can since we seemed to have skipped summer. Lol.

The challenge at Melonheadz Friends is perfect for this changing weather 'Colours of Autumn'.
Inspired my my surroundings, here is what I made

I added the 'count your blessings' in word before I printed the coloured image. Then I simply found my scraps and started punching out little hearts. I added a burnt orange ribbon and attached it to a gate fold (?) card. Easy peasy!

Thanks for popping by. The challenge runs for 2 weeks and you can use any image to play along as long as you follow the theme. But..if you want to use a Melonheadz check here for links to Nikki's personal blog (some freebies) or her Etsy store.

It's time to get well at the Digi Sketch Challenge!

Hello :)

It's been bitter sweet having the kids go back to school. All their teachers are wonderful but I do miss the little side hugs I get as they walk by during the day.

It does however leave lots of crafty time!

It's time for another challenge at the Digi Sketch Challenge Blog. The theme is 'get well' and of course there is a fab sketch to go with it. Determined to use up my scrap box I didn't follow the sketch, I made this instead...

The fab sponsor is MelJen's Designs. She recently has updated her shop, have you scene it? You can check it out here

The challenge runs for 2 weeks, can't wait to see what you make :)
Thanks for stopping by!

It's Lacy Sunshine time

Oh boy do we need some sunshine. It's really, really rainy. Not your typical rain but a solid down-pouring. Hopefully it will let up soon or my basement might flood-eek!

Anywho, the challenge at the Lacy Sunshine blog is -include a window.

Here is my entry

I coloured it up with my copic markers and used lots of buttons for dimension. A sentiment and bow was added to finish it off :)

Thanks for popping by :)

Alas, we won't have much gardening left but I really like the image :) I kept the card pretty plain as the image was printed so large.

Woot, woot, it's another challenge at Penny's Challenge!

The theme is Anything Goes and the sponsor is one of my favs-Lacy Sunshine

Here is my card using   Winter Johnny Sweet Urchin

He so cute. The sentiment I printed off my computer, in hind sight I'd make it a bit darker.  I coloured him with my copics and added glitter to tone down the colours I used. Gotta love the bling!

It's time to Clear it out!

Head on over to the Clear it out challenge blog and join us in clearing out our stash. The theme is anything goes, so it's a great time to use stuff up!

Here is the card I made using the sponsor Bugaboo Stamp image

I love this image :) I coloured her up with my copics and added a string of pearls at the bottom. My stash item is the grey flowers. I have had those over 5 years..actually the Stampin' Up purple paper I've had for years too!!

The challenge runs for one week and the winner gets 7 images from Bugaboo-can't wait to see what you create :)

MelJen's challenge

Well, I've been a busy bee today! This is my third posting for today.
To see my Melonheadz DT post click here, to see my Digi Sketch DT post, click here

MelJen's is having a sketch challenge and I thought I'd join in !

Here is the card I made

I coloured the dog with my copics (bv20, bv23). The banners and paw are from a paper pack that is actually for cats. Don't know how I acquired that, I'm not a cat person-lol. However, I think it works well here. The sentiment 'happy' is a rub on from Making Memories I've had for about 8 years. Yes, I have a probelm-lol
Thanks so much for stopping by,
