Fussy and Fancy 27 Time To Celebrate

 Wow, I can't believe it will be one year since Fussy and Fancy launched our first challenge. Our first challenge was on Jan. 1, 2010 so for this challenge we wanted to do something BIG. Well we have lined some awesome sponsors that are going to be giving our participants some fabulous prizes. Please hop on over to Fussy and Fancy to see all our sponsors. Our challenge is for you to create a card and 3D gift for a Celebration. This can be any kind of Celebration from birthday, baby shower, wedding to any other reason you celebrate. 

I made a card and frame for a wedding. At the time that I made this I was thinking this might be the first card I add to my Etsy shop. Well in the last few days I discovered a few people I know I getting married in the next couple of weeks so I think I will be using it as a gift. The image is called Bride and Groom by DigiStamp Boutique. The sentiments I used are from the Zeke and Maddie Rubber Stamp Set by StampInsanity. I used my new pattern paper from Echo Park Paper Co called Be Mine, you will be seeing a lot of this paper.

SISC 40 Sparkle

Good morning, today I am sharing my card for SISC 40. The theme is super easy this week, all you need to do is share your sparkly projects with us. 

My card features Katie from the Katie for a Cure. I colored her with Copics to go with this beautiful Be Mine pattern paper by Echo Park Paper Co. I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the ribbon she is sitting on. There is also some sparkle on the white strip of paper that came from a DCWV Glitter stack. Thanks for stopping by, hope you can join the Sparkly challenge at StampInsanity.

Here are a few Christmas cards I made last week and forgot to add to my blog. The first two cards are featuring Candy Cane London by Simply Betty Stamps. I used Everybody Loves Christmas by Echo Park Paper

 This card features Hugging Snowman by Di's Digi Downloads. The papers and sentiment are from SU. 

These last 2 cards feature this sentiment from Morgan's Star stamp set by StampInsanity. I used Wintertime pattern paper by Echo Park Paper.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 

Fussy and Fancy 26

Hello my fellow blogging friends, today I am sharing a couple of cards. The first is for Fussy and Fancy Challenge 26 where the theme is Snow. I used  Love This White Stuff by Di's Digi Downloads. I didn't use any pattern papers just a couple of cuttlebug folders on white card stock. 

Sketch and Stash 51- Your Choice(pick one of the past sketches) I chose Challenge 40, the new item is the brad

This is my second card, I used Christmas Wishes by  Di's Digi Downloads. The pattern paper is Wintertime by Echo Park . The sentiment is by SU.  I love the way this one turned out. It's a simple layout but the image pops.

Hey everyone, I'm a bit late with this post again. This is my card for SISC 39 Holidays Your Way. I used the adorable Morgan from Morgan's Star Rubber Stamp Set (this set is still on sale for only $8.50). I used this gorgeous Everybody Loves Christmas paper by Echo Park Paper Co.

Back to my card, I colored Morgan with Copics and added some Kaiser Rhinestones to the tree. The sentiment and punches are from SU. Thanks for stopping by.

Fussy and Fancy 25

Good morning, this is my second post for the day. If you are looking for my Digi's With Attitude! card, please scroll down. 

This is my project for Fussy and Fancy 25- Anything But a Card. I made this ornament for my hubby's cousin's baby. On the other side it has her name, the year and First Christmas. I decided to make a matching card to go along with the ornament. This adorable image is God's Little Angel by Karen's Doodles. I thought it was perfect for a Baby's first Christmas.

Good morning my blogging friends. Today I am sharing my card for DWA Challenge 10, Anything goes as long as you use a digi image. I chose to use Angry Anabelle on my card. She kind of has an I'm sorry look on her face to me so that's how I used her.

SISC 38 It's All About Me

Here is my project for StampInsanity Challenge 38, It's All About Me. Ok first off I totally misinterpreted the meaning of this challenge. I thought I was suppose to create something for me. Well I was suppose to create something that embodies me. I need to pay better attention next time so I don't goof again. 

For the challenge I made an ornament for the Christmas tree. I used one of the Maddies from the Holiday Princesses Digi Set. The sentiment is from the Morgan Star Rubber Stamp Set which happens to be on sale for half price right now. Check it out here. I used paper that came from the Winter Mat Stack by DCWV. This paper is kind special to me because it belonged to my sister in law. This time of year is difficult because it was her favorite time, she was one of those people that wore a Santa hat the day after Thanksgiving. Yikes, I'm getting all sad and sappy on you. Well I hope you like my little ornament and check the rest of the gurlz projects.

Simply Betty's 12 Day's of Christmas

Well, since I have done all my DT work for this week done I thought I would give this one a try. Day 7 is to use a Christmas Emo with the colors lime green, purple and turquoise.

SISC 37 Luscious Lace

Oops, I'm a bit late for my post for SISC 37 Luscious Lace! The Fabric of Our Lives. The challenge is to use lace on your projects. I used this lovely pink lace that Jennifer was kind enough to give me. I used as a frame around my image, I totally copied this from something I've seen Mindy do. This image is Elfin Magic Morgan she was colored in with Copics. The pattern paper, card stock and sentiment are from SU.
