I joined a challenge this week at the Outlawz. It's been a while since I've been on there, truth be told I couldn't for the life of me remember my password-lol.

 Here is my ATC -which was only 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches EEK! I had to cut it down a few times to make it fit that size.

 I used a Karleigh sue image and coloured it with my copics. The sentiment I made in word and then I embellished from there. Hope you like it :)

Melonheadz challenge time!

Are you ready for a giggle? Well you would have been if you had seen the mess I made with this new challenge at Melonheadz Friends 'try something new'.

I thought I would try and make my own background. I thought I could use a gold spritzer I hadn't used in a while......

Enter flying gold particles, golden fingers, baby wipes and finally inks and a stipple brush. Check out the result

I am happy with the background, not so much with my craft space. Apparently the spritz nozzle can get jammed up if you leave it for too long and didn't flow quite the way I had planned. Imagine me looking down at my paper trying to spritz and out of the corner of my eye I see it shooting across the room. Yep, that happened :(

The good news is you can try anything that is new to you-a new fold, new technique, etc.

Looking forward to seeing your cards. The challenge runs for two weeks

Melonheadz Time!

Howdy folks! It was so nice to have the hubbie come home for the weekend from his work. Gave the kids happy hearts and this momma a much needed break!

This week the challenge at Melonheadz Friends is 'Time for school'.

The card I made was a snap to put together as the image was pre-coloured. It is from the We Love Frogs bundle you can purchase at the Melonheadz Etsy Store. You get 11 images for 7.00.

Here is my card

This one is going to my little guy that has been extremely anxious about going back to school. He is graduating to the 'big side' of the school. His main concern is the new portable they added to the yard over the summer. I called and asked and he will not be in it. When I told him he says ' Phew, oh mom that is great news. I just don't think I was ready to be in there! Teehee, he's so cute.

The challenges at Melonheadz run for 2 weeks and I'll be popping by to check out your creations.
Thanks bunches for stopping in

I'm alive!

So here I am...barely. I've been battling the flu and a wicked chest infection so I haven't had much time for anything let alone crafting. The hubbie has been away on business and of course I have been ordered by the Dr to be on bed rest. I don't know how that is possible for anyone with children :(

Anywho, on the plus side I was able to do some colouring and made the perfect card this week. Both for how I'm feeling and for the Lacy Sunshine challenge.'something weird and different'

So here is my card and a pretty accurate self portrait right now ;)

Thanks for popping by. I've been up colouring quite a bit so stay tuned for more posts in the next few days!

Digi Sketch Time!

It's time to get your 'man' cards going and join us for a fun challenge at the Digi Sketch Blog.

You can follow the theme, sketch  or both. I chose to use both this round

I coloured this fun 'geeky' dude with my copic markers. He is from SLS Lines. I added the word awesome to his t-shirt ;) I matted him and the other sketch elements with brown cardstock from Stampin' Up. ( not sure if they even still sell this colour)

Anywho, you have 2 weeks to play along. I hope you'll join us. The winner gets 3 single images ( up to $10)

Have a great week, see you next time.

It's Melonheadz time

It's a 'Bright' challenge at Melonheadz Friends this round.

Here is a Christmas card I made using a Santa Digi

I coloured this cutie up with my Copic markers and added him to a primary paper background. I layered that on yellow then red to tie in the colours. To finish it off I added clear green gems to the corners for a little shine.

The challenge runs for two weeks. If you use a Melonheadz Digi your theme is anything goes. If not, you must follow the theme.

Can't wait to visit your blog and see your creations. The winner gets a digi pack from Nikki's store.

Until next time..
