As mentioned in my post yesterday; last weekend I facilitated a two day crop. This is another one of the cards I assembled from a card kit.

Our Crafty Critters Blog Group had an "Are You Green" challenge. You could spruce it up for St Pats Day or celebrate any way that you Go Green. So I decided to use this precious digi image from Stretch and Bubbles; his name is Steve Go Green.
My layout I used the sketch from my Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. Hop over to enter to win a Surprise Give A Way!!
The DP is DCWV and the card stock is SU!. I used my Copics and Prismas to color Steve. The Go Green logo is computer generated. The brads are misc brads I used from my stash.

I hosted a Cricut swap on SCS a few months ago. An SCS friend, Nancy, offered to take this round off my hands and enjoy hosting a round herself. I was happy to wrap these up a few days ago and thought they turned out cute. This was not my original layout that I was going to do but when I purchased the Child's Year cart for Christmas I knew I wanted to use it for this swap.

This was a first for me, I joined a recipe exchange swap. The theme was "One Pot Dishes." We were to create a recipe card as a 6x6 page. I'm excited to start a fun little recipe book with the recipes I get back.

Here in PA we have gotten 30+ inches of snow within the past week. Even though its causing a lot of delays and cancellations in our area, the winter white sure is beautiful.
I thought today I would ink up this sweet little Sugar Nellie images for the first time. I used Sweet Sketch Wednesday for my sketch inspiration and La-La Land Crafts challenge. La-La Land's was to use no DP which was a really fun challenge.

So today I got my first order in and could not waste one second. I cut this sweet image out and mounted it so I could quickly ink it up. This image is called Steal A Kiss.
On top of all of this, today they had a release party. So hop over to their blog to check out all the action. (click here for blog)
The color combo (pink, blue, and yellow) was inspired from Character Cafe

This images, Mimo with Roses, captured my heart the moment I laid eyes on him. I love his sweet little face!! I also love that this line of Bildmalarna images has little boys. With having two boys of my own I'm always in search of adorable boy images to make cards and scrapbook pages with. Paper Jewels has such a wonderful line of images that I just adore.
I also prepared this card for Creative Belli Blog, Creative Inspiration's Blog, and Little Red Wagon's Blog Challenges. The challenges were to use ribbon, use left overs, and use the color red. Check out their blogs to play along. You know we all just LOVE challenges!!!

This card was created for a double challenge. First is for Paper Jewels which is where this sweet little image is from. The challenge for this week (and the first challenge on the new blog) was to create a cute and girly card. I don't think you can get any more cute and girly when you use one of these sweet images. Click here to hop over and play along in their first challenge. There is a prize to be won!!!
The second challenge was for 2 Red Bananas. I just stumbled across this blog and am loving it. It's so super cute!! The challenge for Sunday was to create a card that you used stamping as your back round instead of patterned paper. This was a great challenge for me because I often do not think outside of the box when it comes to using different color inks. Click here to hop over and play along.

This card is for our second challenge for our Crafty Critter VSD2. The challenge was to create a card that had something old, borrowed, blue, new. The baby in the image is my something new, the borrowed is the actual image, it was given to me by a friend. The new is the paper and flower embellishment and the blue is quiet obvious. Awesome, fun challenge!!
Our first challenge for our VSD2 was to create a card that only used 1 piece of card stock and gave the illusion of layers. Not sure how great I did on this one but here its.

During our snow storm this weekend I'm enjoying our time in. I have some swaps I need to play catch up with so that is my plans for the next two days. WHOO HOO!!! This is a border set I created for a swap that I'm actually hosting on SCS. It's a title border swap so whatever title you choose, that title needs to be on one of the borders you create. This was fun and simple!! I used my Cricut to cut out the apple, start, and scalloped square. The images is a digi from Sweet and Sassy. I used stickles to accent the leaf on the apple.
