Fresh Snowfall

While my kids were cleaning their room today so they could go trick or treating I threw a card together. I used Jens sfytt for my layout. LOVE this sketch so you will probably see it again this week! I was going through some of my dp and pulling out some old Christmas dp to use and came across this SU parisan breeze (I think!) and thought it would work for Christmas too. I colored (with copics) up this fun Whipper Snapper snowman called Fresh Snowfall to match the dp. I actually got a second card made I will share with you tommorrow. Yes it takes my kids THAT long to clean their room!LOL!! Poor Alana cleaned her room and then got sick 15 minutes into us trick or treating. So I had to bring her home and Daddy had to take the other 2. Hope you had a happy Halloween!

Bettys Turkey Ride

I love having images colored up so I can actually post something to share with you! Today Im sharing a card with you I made for Mercys Tuesday sketch challenge. I love doing sketch challenges and Mercy always has a great sketch! I dont usually make Thanksgiving cards but when I saw this adorable image from Pink Cat studio I had to have her...along w/several others!!LOL! I paired her *again* with the Recollections dp from Michaels. I promise this is the last card for awhile using this dp!LOL! I colored Betty using copics and added some shadows using prismacolor pencils. Im really liking the slate gray for shadows with this dp! Mercys sketch had a layer for borders so I thought this MS zig zag border would work since it matches her hat!

Jolly by Golly Vivi

I colored up this Vivi elf image over the weekend at Mamas I used the colors from the cosmo cricket dp. We had a great time and I got a few images colored up! Last night I sat down and tried to make a card using the Anyone for Anya sketch and it just didnt happen. I couldnt get my card they way I wanted so when I saw todays sketch challenge on SCS I decided to give it a try with the dp and image I wanted to use. Thankfully it came together so easily! Love when it happens like that! I think she looks so cute and fun paired with this dp!

I am so tired today! We had a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch at the Prek and it was a LOOONNGGG day!LOL!

I paired her with my fave fall paper Recollections from Michaels. I cant wait to see their Christmas paper since I enjoyed using this fall paper so much! I used Julees Mojo sketch and as I was linking it I realized I left off a layer so we'll just pretend the ribbon is that layer!LOL! Hey its Monday and I work with 4 yr olds all day!

Indian Summer Bella

I made a card today! But I had LOTS of help!LOL! I started with the FS challenge. I chose this card of Rachels to case. She used Indian summer dp and mine just came in the mail last week so I had to use it! I was trying to decide what image to use when I found this card by Linda I had bookmarked. I LOVE how she colored Bella in this and decided to use her card as my coloring inspiration. I used Jens sfytt for my layout. I also used a buttony bow I saw on Joannes blog. See told ya I had lots of help!LOL!
Im so glad to be back to stamping!! We got my new desk put together since I was w/out a computer and cable we decided it was a good time to get everything moved around. I love my desk and we finally have our kitchen table back!!LOL! Now I have my computer at my stamp desk so I colored up some images last night while watching some episodes online I missed while we were without cable. We were are heading to Mamas later to play and color up some images! Hope you have a great Sunday!

Broken break

Well my fall break has NOT turned out the way I planned!LOL!! On Friday my car decided to leave us on the side of the road on our way to Albany for a shopping trip with Mama. So its sitting in the yard until Monday when the shops open. Thankfully my Dad was back in town from his vacation and tow it for me. We got home to find out that in a lightning storm Thursday night lightning struck our cable/internet modem so we also have no tv/internet until Monday! I feel like I've gone back in time!LOL! What did we ever do w/out vehicles, tv, and internet!LOL! Well at least my house is clean since I didnt have anything else to do!LOL! Im at Mama's right now for our birthday dinner. Hope you all had a less eventful weekend than I did!LOL!! Hope to be back tommorrow!

Swiss Pixie Sunflower

I promise I have stamps other than CC designs or Pink Cat Studio I just cant seem to use them right now! I keep going back to these adorable images. Im just a little obsessed right now!LOL! I really liked todays colors and thought they would be perfect for this new Swiss Pixie! I love sunflowers so this image was a must have for me! I used Mercys sketch challenge also. 2 challenges for me on the day of the challenge! Woo hoo! Havent been able to do that in quite awhile! It took me almost 2 hours to make this card since I didnt have the image already colored. Ive never been one to be able to make a card in 20 mins which is why I dont get to post everyday. I usually have time to color an image one night then put together a card the next. It doesnt help that as soon as I sit down at my stamp table my kids think of 50 things they need RIGHT NOW!LOL!! When I wasnt working I had plenty of time to stamp but was very limited on what I could buy. Now I can buy more stuff and dont have time to use it!LOL! LIFE huh?!? Im looking forward to next week since we have fall break and I will be spending plenty of time at my stamp table!

I did have time today to put together a card. For todays fs challenge I cased glowbugs card here. I changed everything except the layout and had to tweak it a bit since my image is larger.

Froggy Pumpkin Fun

Todays lsc is Simply "fall"ing. We were to make a fall type card using only stamps, ink and paper. We could use nesties as long as there was a stamped image in the center. Yes I think I cheated a little using the paper piercer but it just needed "something"!LOL! When I think of fall I instantly think Halloween so I used this fun halloween image from PCS. I just love these little frogs!! So cute!! I colored the image using copics and added shadows (which is not showing up very good in the pic!) using prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I sponged versamagic melon chalk ink to the top of the image while it was still in the nestie. A really quick one for today!

Stamps: Froggy fun-PCS digi
Paper: white, Coredinations orange and yellow
Ink: Copics, versamagic melon

Turkey Case

Im home today with sick children so after a Dr visit I put them on a cartoon and went to my stamp table. I had no idea what I wanted to stamp! Do you ever have days like that?! I didnt have any images already colored up so I went into my faves and found this turkey card. I colored the WS turkey with copics using colors from the dp and added some shadows with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I forgot how cute this dp was! Ive put myself on restriction from buying any dp (no matter how cute!!) until I go through some of my stash!LOL! Several people are making this very hard and you know who you are!LOL!! So I making sure to also decorate the inside of my cards to go through my stash quicker!LOL! Have a great day!

Itty Bitty Betty's not clownin around

We've had a great weekend here! Hope yours has been the same! We were kid free last night so we went to a friends house and had a blast. Since we've been gone almost all weekend I havent had alot of computer time so I hope to catch up on my fave blogs tommorrow after school.
Its been forever since I made a tent topper card so when I saw this card in todays fs gallery I knew it was the one I wanted to case. Congrats to Lois todays fs! I kept the same theme as Lois's card. I changed the witch image to this adorable digi image by Pink Cat Studio. I colored Betty using copics and used periwinkle prismacolor pencil for the night sky look around her. I used Recollections halloween dp and cut out some of the bats from the dp to pop up on the main image. The inside sentiment says Flyin by with a halloween hi! I think this turned out pretty cute!

Fall Emma

Happy World Card Making Day!! SERIOUSLY (said in my best Meredith Grey voice) its been Tuesday since I loaded?!?LOL! We had a super busy week and Im so glad its been us! Charmaine posted a Verve color challenge a few weeks ago and I LOVED the bold fall colors she picked so I colored up this cutie Emma image using the colors although I think Im a little late for the challenge. Copic Creations challenge is to color pumpkins so I think I will go with that one!LOL! Razzleberry is quickly becoming my fave new in color! Since I liked the colors so much I didnt want a fussy layout and I really like the flower embellie! I will be using this color combo again but I think I will use pumpkin pie next time instead of dusty durango (her apron). Of course since I colored this two weeks ago I have no idea what colors I used. Sorry! Ive got to get better about that! I do know I found a combo I like for Razzleberry R59 with V6 colored over it that I used here. Have a great weekend!!
