Cousin Carly with a Sweet Sketch

Here's a card I made for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 68 and A Spoon Full Of Sugar 123 Spots and Stripes. I colored Cousin Carly by Di's Digi Downloads a while ago so I don't remember which Copics I used on her. I do remember that I colored her to use with this pattern paper from My Mind's Eye So Sophie Graceful Collection. The colored card stock and ribbon are from SU.

Thanks for stopping by. I am trying really hard to get back into creating. Hopefully soon I will get back to posting on a more regular basis than once or twice a week.

Embossing With StampInsanity

Good morning blogging friends. Today there is a new challenge over at StampInsanity. SISC 28 is all about embossing. I used this sentiment from the Henry's Snowman available at the StampInsanity Store. I kept things simple and let this card be all about the sentiment and embossing. 

Totally off topic here, just wanted to say WAHOO I have 100 followers. Thank you I appreciate all of you.

2 Cards for Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge 19

Happy Friday blogging friends. Today I am sharing 2 cards for Fussy and Fancy Challenge 19. Our current theme is Christmas Colors. I wasn't sure if I wanted to make a Christmas card or a regular card. I decided in the end to make both. 

This first card features Cousin Carly by Di's Digi Downloads. I love the way she turned out. I colored her to go with this Pink Paislee's Cupid Paper.

The second card features A Letter To Santa, also by Di's Digi Downloads. I paired this image up with Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Pattern Paper. I added some Polar White Flower Soft on the trim of the Santa suit and hat. I also  added some to the ground and the top of the mailbox.

SISC 27 One Layer Card

Yeah, it's Thursday! I am so happy it's Thursday because my hubby will be home sometime today, he has been in Vegas since Friday. Today there is also a new challenge over at StampInsanity. SISC 27 is One Layer Wonder. When I first saw this challenge I was discouraged because I am not a one layer kind of girl. I spent a few days thinking this one over. Final I had a light bulb moment and I envisioned these foot prints going across the card. The hardest part was lining up the feet since the stamp only has one set of human feet with half a set of wolf feet (see stamp sheet below my card). It took a few tries before I got this set of prints. This first picture is what I first came up with. After taking a few pictures, I thought there was a bit too much white space. 

Otherworldly Loves by StampInsanity

I pulled out this charm from Artful Inkables. I put it on a cell phone charm holder(I'm not sure what it is called). I then looped it around the ribbon and slid the knot a bit to the left. I'm still not sure which version of this card I like best. What do you think the first one or this one? 

StampInsanity is having a DT call. If you are interested in being one of the Groovy Gurlz check out the details here. You have till Friday September 24th to apply.

Thanks for stopping by, please go see what the rest of theDT created.

SISC 26 It Happens In Threes

It feels like I haven't blogged in such a long time. Sorry, I was on vacation with the family. I'm home now and will slowly start getting back into the swing of things.

This is a card I made before I went on vacation for SISC 26 It Happens In Threes. My threes are the card stock colors (green, purple and orange), pattern papers and the bling.
