It's Penny Challenge time!

Welcome back to my blog :) 

I am busy preparing a week full of Sunday school lessons for camp next month. I am so hard on myself, worrying if I have enough things for the little ones to do. I usually over plan and of course with little ones you never really know what journey they will take you on. This year I am focusing on the parable of the Wise and Foolish Builder. 

Anywho, back to the task at hand! It's time to play along in Pennys challenge. The theme is anything goes and there is a new sponsor this week

I had oodles of fun colouring this one up. If I could pick a picture of my bestie and me in 50 years, this is what we'd look like

We'd of course have on our sensible brown shoes, but other than that we are so different. She is a professional and therefore mostly wears practical outfits. I love fun things to wear like polka dots. That being said on more than one occasion we have bought the same outfit or shoes-lol.

I coloured this with my copics and made the sentiment on my computer. The flower and button I've had forever and I added twine to it. The grey adhesive ribbon was added to break up the paper and the gems where added at the bottom just because...okay maybe not really. I thought we had to add sparkle so I glittered up the gals shopping bags (and one hat) and added the gems.

If I wasn't so consumed by my Sunday school project I would have realized the sponsor was Sparkle N' Sprinkle. Not that I had to add sparkle to my project!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you will join us. The challenge runs for one week

Clear it out challenge time!

It's a yellow challenge at the Clear it out challenge blog!

Head on over and see what the gals created with our sponsor

I used the adorable image Macy Boo for my card.
I really wanted to play up the yellow so I busted out the copic markers and made this

I made the starburst pattern and went from there. I added flowers from my stash and then added a star. It just needed something in that corner. The sentiment is from my computer.

When my children were younger they each had a specific song I would sing to them. For my daughter it was 'you are my sunshine'. I love at almost  6, she still crawls in my arms and asks me to sing it.

Anywho, the challenge runs for one week and since it's a random draw, anyone can win!

I hope you'll join us

It's an anything goes challenge!

Head on over for an anything goes challenge at Penny's challenges!

I love this type of challenge, because if you make a card you could win from our sponsors. No rules, no restrictions, just be creative! I'm good with that :)

The sponsor I got to work with is Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet

Here is the card I made

I had a lot of fun colouring up my brown bear with my copic markers. I just love how the copics blend
The stars were punched with an SU punch and I added the banner and my saying in word before I printed my image

Penny's challenge runs for one week. You can check out all the details and the other DT fab work here

It's time to Clear it out!

It's challenge time at Clear it out and we are cleaning out our glitter stash.

I was recently at a friends house and she had 2 containers full of glitter. Unopened. She had so much, she didn't know what to do with it all. It just accumulated over time. My first thought-make some Christmas cards!

I love sparkle in all my cards, I could own shares in Stickles-lol.

Here is the card I made using an image from the Stitchy Bear Outlet Store, (our sponsor) it's called Elf Secrets from Stitchy Stamps

The DP is old, old Stampin' up paper, as is the scalloped border. The snowflakes were punched out and a pearl added. The red glittered ribbon is self adhesive and I added more glitter to the elf's hat. She was coloured in Copics. The sentiment is a stamp also from SU (Stampin' Up)

The challenge runs for one week, thanks so much for stopping by.

Melonheadz Friends-come play along!

It's a 'things with wings' challenge at Melonheadz Friends! 

Follow the theme or use a Melonheadz image and chose your own theme to enter.

Here is a card I made to showcase Nikki's lovely images

I found the cute background paper at Michaels on sale for .25 cents (or something cheap) but I thought it worked great with this image I coloured up with my copic markers. The sentiment I made in word and punched it out with my SU punch. I added a ribbon and Stickles around the clouds to add some bling.

There are lots of images to chose from at the Melonheadz Etsy store, or browse the blog for a freebie or two. Either way, there is two weeks to play along. I hope you'll join us :)

Digi Sketch Challenge

Hello folks, welcome back to my blog :)

Today I am posting a card I made for the Digi Sketch challenge. The theme is 'Pretty Pastels' and there is a sketch to follow as well.

The sponsor for this challenge is Pink Gem Designs and I had the privilege of using their digi for my card.

This digi came pre-coloured and I added lots of glitter to make it sparkle. After all, Christmas cards should sparkle right?  I followed the sketch and added a giant snowflake to the top corner. The sentiment is actually a sticker I've had in my stash forever!

Thanks so much for stopping in. The challenge runs for two weeks  :)

Anything Goes at Penny's!

Wowie, where has this month gone? The kids and I have been super busy playing during the day, soccer at night and chillin' somewhere in between.

Today there is a new challenge at Penny's challenge blog
The theme is anything goes and one of the sponsors is

Often people thank my hubbie with little gifts because he does an excellent job in his field. That got me thinking....I don't see very many cards thanking people in the service industry. (I'm thinking teachers, dentists, hairstylists, construction workers,etc.)

Well here is my card that could work for so many people

The challenge at Penny's runs for one week. Check out the blog to see the other DT cards and who the other sponsor is :)
As always, thanks for stopping by!
