Some of our friends tied the knot a couple of months ago and I finally remembered to post the card! They are a great couple and I really wanted to make a special card for them. Congrats Thomas and Tiffany! Enjoy!

Today I'm sharing a sympathy card I made for a friend of ours. He lost his mother last week. I really struggled with this card but I think it turned out pretty good, not too girly or happy. Hope everyone is having a good day. 11 days until our craft fair, CRAP!!! :)

S2G Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the 1st S2G Members Blog Hop sponsored by Shirley's2Girls! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at the S2G Challenge Blog.

I made my card with a digi image I picked up from the girls on Digi Day on SNR. I colored the image with my Bic Mark Its and added Stickles to my muffin and my plate. Be sure to check out their other great images!

How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a free stamp from Shirley’s2Girls. The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the SNR S2G Forum.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Gina's blog.

Twisted Thursday Challenge

Here's another challenge! Over at S2G Challenges, you had to use their sketch and the twist was to use a metal tag or something metal on your card. I used a metal Christmas tree embellishment and stuck it on some cardstock and made a little tag for my ribbon. I liked this sketch so much, I think I'm going to make a few more cards with it. I also used my new paper and my new ribbon AND my new stickers! I love new stuff! I have to make something with it right away or it just eats at me! :)

Let me know what you think!

Inspiration Needed

My friends and I are doing a craft fair in November and I need inspiration BAD!! :) So, I've decided to participate in all of the challenges I can find. That way, I get my cards made and I might win something! So, I made this card for the challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers. The challenge was to use their sketch and any colors, so I did Christmas. The image on my card I got from End of the Day Crafting on Etsy. I bought some smaller images from her and she threw one of these in too! So, I will being buying some of these because I love them, and they were a great price! Let me know what ya think!
PS: If you find a fun challenge, let me know! :)

Quick post!

I just wanted to post this card, then I'm off to play with my new goodies from Hobby Lobby! I got a ton of new paper and ribbon, 50% off, I couldn't help it! :)

This image is from Nina for her weekly challenge. I colored it with my NEW markers! This my first time ever to color with these markers and I think it looks just plain AWESOME!! Keep your Copics, I got 24 markers for 12 bucks! I'll make due for now! Anyways, I made this for my Granny. She asked me to make her a Halloween birthday card, so this was just perfect! I love it so much I almost didn't wanna give it away! :) Let me know what you think!

I "heart" Bic Mark-it Markers!!

...and NO, no one is paying me to say that (I wish!) I just got the 24 pack and I LOVE THEM!!!! A few posts ago I told you about the tutorial on Nina's blog that I watched, well it was awesome! It really dumbed it down for me, which I need!!! Go to down to the "Pink Christmas" post on my blog to see it.

I have colored my first image with my markers and I think it looks great! I haven't finished the card yet so I won't post it yet, but I hope to finish it tonight and post it tonight! Have a wonderful day!

EHWCMD4 Challenge at the CLASSroom

And last (maybe) but not least for card for Julia's challenge to put on the glitz! I love all of her cards and this one was no exception! I couldn't wait to play along! (more Stickles) I also used a printable from etc. so cute! Now, it was in color but I didn't have a color printer so I printed it on pink paper and Stickled it up!!! I just love the way it looked!
Let me know what ya think!!

EHWCMD6 Challenge at the CLASSroom

Second card for the night, also for the CLASSroom! The challenge was to use robin's egg blue, dark brown, and vanilla/cream. Here's my take! (more Stickles!)
Let me know what you think!

EHWCMD7 Challenge at the CLASSroom

First up is my card for a challenge at over the the CLASSroom. The challenge was to make a card using the upcoming holiday season! Tough one I know! Here's my card, hope you like it!
If you'll notice, I used a bunch of Stickles on this card! I just love them and that's what I love about making holiday cards, it's perfectly acceptable to put them everywhere! :) And, if you read my next few post, you'll see that I did!

WCMD Challenges!

Okay guys I'm fixing to start posting all my cards and entries for the various contests I'm entering so there will be quite a few posts and they should be short since a little person I love won't let me be on here for long! :) I hope you enjoyed your WCMD, I know I did!

It's World Card Making Day!!!

Yay! Sounds like a perfect holiday to me! There are tons of games and challenges going everywhere and I can't wait to play! I'll be playing today over at Limelight Papercrafts! Sesame Street is on and I have a fresh cup of coffee, let the games begin! Hope everyone gets to enjoy all the fun or at least make something!


Pink Christmas

Who doesn't love a pink card?? I do! So I decided to use this pink paper to make a card for Limelight Sketch #31. The challenge is to use texture on your card. So, I added some burgundy Stickles to my candy cane for a little texture! I also used another digital stamp on here and I have to say that I think my coloring is getting better! I watched this tutorial on Nina's blog "There's Magic in the Air" for Bic Mark-it Markers (which I will be purchasing soon!) and I just adapted it to color pencils. I have a hard time understanding how to shade but I'm learning! Let me know what you think!
