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!

Time to Clear it out!

Head on over to the Clear it out challenge blog for a Clean and Simple challenge.

We have 2 sponsors but had the privilege of using digital stamps from DeeDee's Digis

Here is what I made using the Daniels' Tree.  I think he's just ducky! Lol.

I had such a hard time trying to do a one layer card. I think it turned out okay though. I coloured it up with my copic markers and added sparkle to the snow. To add 'snow' to the tree I used my white gel pen. I finished it off with red twine and a punched snowflake.

The challenge runs for one week.

Thanks for stopping by

Lacy Sunshine challenge

Here is my card for the Lacy Sunshine 'Under the Sea Christmas' challenge.

It's a progressive challenge so if you play along you get the next digi for free :)  There is a whole lot of new digis out at Lacy Sunshine-you should check them out!

I coloured him up with my copics and used a sentiment I had in my stash (maybe from last Christmas?) Pearls, a bead and twine were added to finish it off. There are a lot of Christmas in July Challenges and I'd like to enter this into

Quirky Crafts-use a die cut/punches (circle and scallop punch for sentiment, corner punch)

Thanks for stopping by!

MelJen's challenge

It's challenge time at the MelJen's challenge blog. The theme is a colour challenge and I used the weekend freebie to make a card.

I have a friend who is struggling to lose some weight and it breaks my heart to hear her so sad. She is such a beautiful person (inside and out). I knew I was going to make a card for the Facebook challenge but was't sure what I was going to make. I thought making her this card would bring a smile to her beautiful face.

I coloured it up with my copic markers and added some glitter to the clouds. The heart button I've had in my stash forever, and printed the sentiment of the computer.

Thanks or stopping in, have a super day :)
