A Challenge Card

I love all the Challenges going on!! I always need a little inspiration to get my mojo on and the challenges seem to do the trick. So a special thank you to all who hold and sponsor all these challenges.

Today I made a cute little card for a couple of challenges. The first being Bitten by The Bug -
Caterpillar from Walk in My Garden. He's a cute little bug and I welded him to my apple from A Childs Year cart using the Cricut Craftroom. This is the base of the card, then I cut out layers and assembled.

I also done the inside to resemble the inside of the apple. This was alot of fun to make. Will also being entering him to the Cricut Craftroom - Welding Challenge. They have a really great prize for the challenge--the Sophie Cricut Cart !!
Come join in on the fun!!

Flower Pot Pocket Card

Good evening everyone!! I have had a fabulous Saturday playing with my Peachy Keen Stamps and my Copic markers. They say practice make perfect but I still need a whole lot of practice.
I made this adorable little card for the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge 01, Pockets. Create a project with a pocket! Whether it folds, tucks, or hides a treat,pockets are a fun way to add something extra!

I thought this was the perfect opportunity to use my Funny Flowers from PKS. They are the cutest. I am learning a little bit about my copics, I definitely need to invest in some better paper and I could really use a few more markers for shading, will have to save a few more pennies first thow.

I added glossy accents to my flowers and dusted them with glitter, wish I had left them as they were. Glossy accents makes it a little dificult to photograph, the shine was causing a glare.

My pocket holds a little card they can keep as a book mark. It's a two for one. Hope you enjoyed my card and maybe a little inspiration. Come join the challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps!!

Baby It's Cold Outside!!

It's cold here but no snow. Would like to see one good snow fall for the season!! I guess I really should be careful what I wish for. Hope you all are staying warm this winter season. That brings me to a great challenge over at Cooking with Cricut -- Winter Warmies Challenge. Make a card showing how you stay warm in the winter season. Well for me that means staying inside and crafting. I really had fun with this challenge, I even have window panes (my plastic off my cricut cartridges), I knew I would find a use for them. Here is a list of supplies I used for my card:

Paper - Close to My Heart and DCWV
Window cut-Cricut Christmas Cart
Little Girl-Sugar & Spice Cart her faced stamped with PKS640- Princess faces
Sentiment is Close to My Heart
Stickles and ribbon

Come join in on the fun at Cooking with Cricut challenge.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!! Ta ta for now.

Will you Be Mine?

Sorry I've been MIA for awhile lets just say I am on the road to being organized, WOO HOO!!
Now maybe I can play, have missed my crafting.
Today I decided to do my first Valentine. I decided on a window card with my main image coming thru the window. I just used my Spellbinder classic oval die and centered it in my card. Placed the image on the inside of the card.
I am new to Copic markers, have only colored a few items but really enjoy them. I will be entering this into the I Copic Lover challenge #65. The challenge -- Pull out those Copic colors you have been neglecting and use them on your project this week. Well since I'm new to coloring they have all been neglected.
This will be my first entry to Whimsical Designs Challenge "Anything Goes"!! They are full of crafty goodness you should check them out and come play!!
Will also be entering it into the Peachy Keen Linky Party. There is no theme to this challenge, just create anything with your Peachy Keen Stamps! Since I do not have any cute Valentine Stamps I found the cutest little Valentine Coloring image and removed the face and then stamped her with My favorite Peachy Keen Stamp set--PKS 450 Wide Eyed Kids, isn't she cute?
Items used for this card are:
Spell binders S4-110 Classic Ovals
PKS 450- Wide Eyed Kids
Indentz embossing folder
Xmas Red Stickles
Copics - RV13, R81, RV43, Y19, YR68, B00, R01
Sentiment -Kinderstampo- Vintage Love
Cardstock-Paper Studio
So glad to be back in my craftroom, now it's time to do a little organization in here as well. Thanks for stopping by and would love to hear any tips or tricks on coloring with my copics! And if anyone can tell me what type of paper to use with my Copics that would be great, thanks again.
