I received an award

I received this awesome award from Jennifer. Thank you so much! I'm not sure how this works but I believe I am to pass this award on to some of my blogging friends that I think have a lovely blog.
Well it was hard for me to pick because I follow so many blogs that I love and it would take me forever to list all of them. I narrowed it down to 4, not sure if there is a limit but oh well if I went over :).
First person who I'd like to give this award to is... Reno Digital Creations, when I learn how to digi scrapbook I want them to look like hers.
Second person is... Samantha, she has so many ideas on her blog.
Third person is... Jen, she is super talented and loves Twilight just as much as I do.
Final person is... Sparkle, she makes beautiful cards and shares some great stories in her posts.

Here's a quick card I made for SPCC #21. These color combos seem to always pull me out of my comfort zone, but in a good way. It is nice to try color combos that I would have never done otherwise. I have never used Bravo Burgundy or Creamy Caramel but I love the way these colors look together. I went to one of my favorite stamp sets, Happy Harmony, to make this card. I'm actually pretty surprised how much I like this card. I've spent so much time coloring images that it was nice to make a simple stamp and go kind of card. All supplies are SU except for cuttlebug emboss folder.

Doraline & Dexter under mistletoe

Here's another Christmas card. I used this cute stamp from Motivet called Doraline and Dexter under the mistletoe. I colored this image in a while back when I first got my Copic Ciao Markers. It was waiting to made into a card. I found this sketch at Card Patterns Sketch 38. It was the perfect sketch for this image. All supplies SU except copic markers, the button and main image.

Ivy the Angel

Oh my, isn't she the cutest little angel you've ever seen. This little cutie was designed by Jen. She created a blog for her new line of rubber and digi stamps called The Wild Flower Patch. This angel's name is Ivy and she is part of the 'Tis The Season digi set that was just released earlier this week. You can only purchase them here. I love all Jen's stamps but sadly can't get them all :(. I LOVE angels so this little one was a must have. I colored her in with my Copic Ciao markers. I used the sketch from Delightful Sketches #10.
Supplies: SU Cardstock, ribbon and sentiment, DP is from a stack I bought a few years ago, Copic Ciao Markers, Dazzling Diamonds, and Cuttlebug snowflake emboss folder

Sarah's Birthday Party Invites

These are the invites I made for my daughter's Birthday Party next month. We will be having it at a local bead store where the girls will make a bracelet. After that she wants them to sleepover. That is why there are only a few invites. Too many girls can be a handful.
Anyways I realized last night I needed to send them to school today. Good thing I had already colored the Miss Anya's the day before. I had planned to make bookmarks as part of the invite, but I lost track of time so I threw these together.

Supplies: SU Cardstock and sentiment, Miss Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm, Copic Ciao markers, and oval and scallop oval nesties.

Twilight Tuesday Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome, you should have arrived here from Jennifer's, if not please start at the beginning here. I am extremely excited to be a part of Twilight Tuesday's 1 year Anniversary. I can't say I've been with them since the beginning, because I didn't start reading Twilight till February of this year. I'm kind of glad I got into it late because I could not imagine having to wait for Breaking Dawn to come out. Oh my, I would have been extremely impatient, lol. Anyways, along the hop there will be some awesome blog candy from Stamp Happens Shop, Stamp Insanity Stamps , The Greeting Farm , Unity Stamp Co. , Die Cuts R Us, Sassy Studio Designs and Stars Fall Designs so make sure you visit everyone.

This card I made for TTIC #5 Which Team Are You? Well obviously I am Team Edward (although I may be Team Jacob after the movie, lol) The Charm and stamp are from Artful INKables. I colored the image in with copics, then put Crystal Effects over the heart.

This is for TTIC#1, Rosalie Hale. To me the sentiment goes with what she was trying to tell Bella. I thought this Miss Anya made a good Rosalie.

This is for TTIC 11 A Very Cullen Christmas and TTIC #4 Alice Cullen. I got the sketch from Unscripted Sketches #28 but I flipped it.

Anya images are from The Greeting Farm.

Hope you all enjoyed your stop here but now it is time to move on to Steph.

Her Anniversary is on Halloween so it makes sense right. She is giving away awesome blog candy so go check it out! I found this awesome image for FREE at Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

Other supplies not mentioned above: SU Cardstock , DP is from K & Company, Copic Ciao markers, and the sentiment from The Angel Company

Miss Merry Anya

This card was made for Mojo Monday Week 109. Playing in their challenge is kind of intimidating because they have a huge following. It is also where the big girls play, and here I am a wee one trying to play with them, lol.
I used one of my Miss Anya's from The Greeting Farm. I colored her in using my Copic Ciaos. I need to get busy making more Christmas cards, cause it is going to get here faster than we know it. I'm glad I've gotten a few done already.All supplies SU except for Anya Stamp, Copic Markers, Basic Grey DP, and circle and scallop circle nesties.

A Halloween Anniversary

I wanted to play along at SPCC since I missed last week's challenge. These colors really threw me for a loop. I knew I wanted to make a card for 10 Minutes In My Scrappin/Stampin Life's Challenge which was to make a Halloween Themed Anniversary card. She has some awesome blog candy she will be giving away so I suggest you go check it out. I have to say I am not entirely pleased with the card. I think it is because I worked with colors I never use and I don't have too many Halloween stamps. I did find a digi image that I will use to make another Halloween themed Anniversary card with, but I don't want to make another card using these colors, lol.

Edited to add Cuttlebug embossing folder BOO to You was used!

My First...

... card with a digi stamp. I haven't used digi's before because I never had the right medium to color them with. I decided I need to try out a digi but didn't want to buy in case I didn't like them. My copic collection is rather small but I had the perfect colors to color this cute image in. Oh by the way this image is free. I found it while blog surfing, at Joni's blog A Sticky Situation. I hopped over to Inktegrity and stumbled upon this challenge. I used the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches #38. I love the way this turned out.

Supplies: SU Cardstock, DSP, and ribbon, oval and scallop oval nesties, Hope, Faith and Love were printed off the computer, main image is from Inktegrity

Wow today is my lucky day. I have won blog candy from SPCC and Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. I need to play the lottery today, lol.

Picking Up The Pieces

OMG, this took me all to make. Yesterday I posted on Twilight Tuesday, the song that I thought would fit in to the New Moon Soundtrack. My pick was "Picking Up The Pieces" by Blue October. I really didn't want to do a scrapbook page, cause I don't scrapbook. Well, I couldn't come up with anything else so I caved and made a scrapbook page for Twilight Tuesday's FANDOM Friday. I found this picture by googling Twilight Bella. I am going to also enter this into Stamp Something Brown Plus Something Challenge.

Alice Before she was a Cullen

Here's another card using my new Copics :). I made this card for Twilight Tuesday Sketch 12 and I also made this For another Twilight Tuesday Challenge about Alice before she was a Cullen, but will just link it to one. I used one of the Miss Anya Dressy stamps from The Greeting Farm. I love the way she turned out. I'm also entering this card into Caardvarks challenge to use ribbon. Thanks for looking.

Christmas Hilda

I had to play with my new goodies I got on Friday. Who doesn't love to play with new toys, lol. First new thing I used were my Copics and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP that I got at the Scrapbook Expo. The other new thing I used was my Motivet Hilda stamp. She is so cute.

Penny's Kiwi and Chocolate Chip Shirt

Here's a quick card I made for Penny's Challenges Week #10 Be Inspired By her favorite shirt. Yesterday I looked at the challenge and knew I wanted to make something for it. So today I was flipping through the sketch challenges looking for the right layout. I decided Card Position Systems Sketch # 136 was the one to use.
All supplies are SU except for the pearls, they are from Queen & Co. Thanks for looking!

Skater Jack

Here is another one of Mindy's stamps, he is called Skater Jack and you can get him at 2 red bananas. I colored him in to go with Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #18. I am happy with the way he turned out. I figured I make a birthday card with him since I hardly ever make cards for boys. I'm sure I will need a boy birthday card soon and now I will have one already made :). All supplies are SU except for Skater Jack stamp and Cuttlebug background.

Sweet Doraline

I'm so excited, I managed to make cards 2 days in a row, lol. Yeah me! This cute Doraline stamp is from Motivet. If you hop on over to their blog you will see that they are giving away blog candy. Who doesn't like free stamps :)? I made this card for Inspirational Card Sketches #37. I haven't done one of their sketches in a while and I knew this image would work with this weeks sketch. I used my aqua painter and SU ink pads to color Doraline in. All other supplies are SU except for my oval nesties used to cute main image out.

2 sweet sketches

I usually don't like to put 2 different cards in one post, but I made both of these cards for Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch 17, there were 2 different sketches so I did both of them. The first card I also made for A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 72 Halloween. I used another cute little Penny designed be Mindy Baxter and can be found at 2 Red Bananas. I colored Penny in with my aqua painter and SU ink pads and markers. The Cardstock is SU, DP is from K & Company, and the ribbon is from the Dollar bin at Target.
In this card I colored the flower from SU with my SU Pretty in Pink marker (who says you need to do it with reinker). All supplies are SU except the Bling that I got from Michael's Dollar bin.
