Critter Easel Challenge

I'm so awful at anything other than a normal size card or scrapbook page. But I decided to take a challenge with my Critter gals. Our challenge was to create a easel card that had layers, something that glitters (my blue paper), ribbon, layers, and 4 different colors. We were also to color in our image. My frustration started because for some odd reason (never happened before) my Copics were smearing my ink. I use the same ink and paper all the time and this was a first. I'm not sure if it was because the image has more black lines than I'm used to or what.
Along with this I also followed the Critter Sketch Challenge blog's sketch (link to the right sidebar.) The blog is having it's first blog hop right now with tons of great give a ways. You have until Wednesday at 10am EST on Wednesday to play along.

Fabulous Friend

This is another fun card we created at the SU! class I went to on Thursday night. I love how simple this card is. I always try to think of how I can spruce up a card with embelishments but I think this is cute just sprucing it up with stamps.

With Sympathy

On Thursday night I went to a SU! class. It was the first in a long time and I loved it. I missed going to these classes. This is one of the cards we created. I love this tree stamp set. I was sad to find out that it is discontinued. My Aunt and I decided we are going to try to make one class every other month, I sure hope we can stick to that. ;-)

Sugar Nellie

This is another Easter card I created to send out to a family member with my boys pictures. I know it's a little different than a normal Easter card but I just love this fun, sweet image. I followed CCEE Stampers challenge for this week.

Happy Easter

I took my boys on Saturday to have their pictures taken. Not really Easter pictures but more like 2 year old and 4 year old pics. So of course I bought way more than I intended but this is really the first that they have both been in such great moods for picture taking.
So on Sunday I decided to start putting together some Easter cards to send to family members with their pictures in. Here is a picture of them together that was taken. I did not get any of these printed but it is a cute one. So for this Easter card I played in three challenges:
Then of course this is the inside of my card because of course God's love for us and Jesus dying on the cross for our sins is the reason we even get an Easter holiday.

Happy Day

I love the challenges I found for this card. The first one is a SplitCoast challenge to use the color orange. This was fun for me, I normally only use the color orange in the fall so this was a fun "out of the box" color to use this time of year. The challenge is WT258.
The next two challenges were Friday Sketchers #94 and Stamp Something, distress challenge.
Of course I had to use my new Greeting Farm image. I bought this great little set from Stamp and Create. It's called Happy Day and comes with 2 images and 3-4 sentiments. I just adore GF images and I love buying them from Stamp and Create because Lacy has such amazing customer service.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a great day!!

Happy Monday!!

Are you feeling lucky???

Are you feeling lucky? Well this weeks Doodle Dragon Studio Challenge is exactly that. To create a card showing luck using a Dustin Pike image. The great thing about this image is that it's a freebie digi image.

Of course I just had to play along in a few other challenges as well.

CCC22 and MTSC64

Our Crafty Critter Blog Group is working on its 22nd challenge. It's so awesome to think that we have been together as an awesome group for this long. ;-) I love these girls!! Thank you Melina for giving us such a wonderful inspiration challenge.

Were were to use this arrangement as our inspiration. The twist was that we could not use flowers anywhere on our creation.
I drew my inspiration for the sketch from Lord Have Mercy, MTSC64.

Puppy Love

I have been MIA from my blog this week. I have been busy trying to wrap up a border swap I'm in so my card making has been put on the back burner for a few days. This is a border set I created for another girl in our SCS swap.
Our instructions for the swap were to come up with a theme of borders we would like to receive. Then everyone in your group would create that theme of borders for you. One of the girls in one of the groups I'm in wanted puppy borders so I made this Puppy Love set for her.
Hopefully I'll be back later in the week with some card creations.

Hey Dude

This fun image is a Greeting Farm image. Today I played in two challenges. The first challenge is a color challenge by Easy Breezy "Kew" Colour. This challenge was exactly that, a challenge. I would have never pictured these colors together but it really made me think outside of the box. I already knew (before knowing the color combo) that I wanted to use this image. As it turned out, this was a perfect color combo for a boy card. Click HERE to play along in the challenge.
The second challenge was a sketch challenge with my Crafty Critter girls. ;-) Love ya girls!! Colleen gave us this sketch. The twist was to use dots and the color brown. My dots are my brads and the brown is in the shoes. Thanks Colleen for a fun challenge.
