2 Cards, 1 night... AGAIN? (2nd)

I actually made this card for the same friend... Who just bought her first house! What an exciting time. :)
Again, without my Thumb drive, the digi artist shall remain nameless... And I feel terrible about it. (and will edit, as soon as I get the name - I SWEAR!)

I am entering this card in 3 Challenges as well!
Friday Sketchers - Sketch 107
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Ice Cream Flavours
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Doodles

I also coloured the picture with my BRAND NEW COPICS!!!
Took a few weeks to get here - but I am soooooooo in love with them!!

2 Cards, 1 night... AGAIN? (1st)

Just wanted to make a Thank you card for my dear friend - who came swimming with me and my baby girl, Every week, for 10 weeks straight. Not that a card is near enough for how much I appreciate her - but it is a start!

I am a terrible digi owner, and left my thumb drive with the names of the artist at work... but I promise to give credit, as soon as I get it back... oops!!

So for the following 3 Challenges:
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Monochromatic and Wings
The Cuttlebug Spot - Embossing
Cute Card Thursday - sketch

2 Cards in 1 night? (part 2)

This is just a quick card for Mom's friends birthday.
I was inspired the following blog, where my card will be entered. (hopefully it is okay that I didn't make a Father's day card... (Since my father has long passed...)

Rosie Dee's Challenge Blog - Something blue and options are fish or fishing.
Whoopsie Daisy - Ribbons and Bows

Used my paper, some of the CC Designs stamps from my mermaid set, and Cricut Cartridges Stretch your Imagination, and Pagoda.

2 Cards in 1 night? (part1)

Yup... that's right.
Tonight I am a card making machine... because I pulled out the Cricut, and oh how I missed her...

So mom needed a card for her friends birthday... and I needed a card for a friend.
And that is how it all started.

My Princess card is below...

It will be entered in:
Priscilla Styles - Sketch (turned sideways)
Kaboodle Doodles - Anything Goes with a dash of purple
Meljens - fibers, ribbon or lace
Whoopsie Daisy - Ribbons and Bows

Just used Paper, and ribbons from my collection - and the Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge. :)

Hope you enjoy - and please feel free to follow me. :)

Orange & flowery...

I am not a really girly girl... Not complaining - Just saying - I would rather decorate a piece of paper, than make myself up. I was going to put this card in the Floral Delights at A Spoonful of Sugar - but I missed the deadline...
But I gave it a shot anyways.

This will be entered in:
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Sketch, Challenge 12
Crafty Angels - My Favorite Stamp
Creative Card Crew - Thank you
Whoopsie Daisy - Ribbons & Bows

My new Digi is from Bugaboo Stamps.

And as always - feel free to follow me! :)
I love feedback!

The best intentions...

So first let me say... I really really reall wanted to make a card for Lisa's sister and have been thinking of a plan.
Tonight, when I go to piece it all together... I accidently cut my toe on a blade... (don't ask!) and got ink on the 90% finished card. (although I did find a creative way to fix the corner... here's hoping no one notices. LOL)

This card will be entered in:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Pleats
Friday Sketchers - Sketch #105
My Time to Craft - Wild things
Pile it on - Quirky!
Stamp Something - Digi Day Challenge
Stamped Art by Lisa - RAK event for my sister

There was a Free digi of a frog given for the challenge, by Crissy Armstrong, (One of Whimsy Stamps Artists). I used a couple other stamps, that I am unsure of the artists. :(

Wow - Look at the June Give-away from "All Scrapbook Steals - The Blog" in my side bar. That is A LOT of Candy!

You have all month to enter - and check out their website for some GREAT steals!

Black and White with....

I know I am still really new to this, and by all means not nearly as talented as most of the other cards I see... But I keep trying, and as soon as I saw that Black White with a splash of Red Challenge at Crafty Creations I just knew I had to try it.
Also didn't hurt that I came across a number of Free Digi's and have been wanted to play with that aspect of 'stamping' for awhile.

The finished projest looks like this.

The Digi's are from MyGrafico and designed by Sarah Paris (Birds) and Mujka Design Inc (vintage swatches).
The Rub-ons are from My Mind's Eye

Stamp is CC Designs - Kiki la rue
(There are a couple other unknown stamps and some cardstock in there too! lol)
