Party Time Tuesday #23-Anything Goes.

It's another open challenge at Party Time Tuesdays. Kinda hard to believe we've had 23 challenges now! I used Sneaky Tilda for my card today. My sweet friend, Tammi, sent me a few images to play with. She's so stinking cute! Love when Tilda has long curly hair! And look at her socks, stripes! Love it! I followed a sketch on Friday Sketchers. My sentiment is from TAC. Trying to use up some papers. This sketch was perfect for scraps, and every sheet on here was a scrap. The papers are from Basic Grey's Sultry.

Anyhow, hope you play along, and join us. Make sure you link up your birthday card, with sentiment on the front of your card back on the PTT blog. While you're there, check out what the other DT's came up! You won't be sorry you stopped by the blog!

Other supplies: SU cardstock, SU ink, stickles, copics, Martha punch, nesties.

Mojo Beanie...

Ok, this has got to be the cutest image! My sweet friend, Tammi, surprised me with a few images. I seriously gasped when I saw her. I wasn't expecting them, and she was so sweetly cute looking! Anyhow, tried my hand at a circle card tonight. It's the Mojo Monday sketch. I had grabbed this pack of K and Co Christmas paper last week. I love the colors in it! Festive and fun! All came together to make an adorable card! She's colored with stickles. I cut out my circles using Sure Cuts A Lot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Turkey Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving. I made this card for a contest for TAC, sadly, didn't win, but the card is so darling, I had to share it today. I used Emma paper pack. I love the colors in this paper pack. Cardstock is from the Mimi collection. Sentiment is from a different TAC set, and the name is escaping me at the moment. I followed a tutorial on Color Me Copic on making grass. Anyone planning on going out in the crowds for some Black Friday sales tomorrow?

Party Time Tuesday #22: 1, 2, 3 Challenge.

Hi-Dee-Ho-Stampers Go! I've been listening to a ton of Full House on ABC Family lately. The phrase is actually Hi-Dee-Ho-Ranger Joe, cuz ya know, Joey got that fun job doing the show with his chipmunk puppet. See, I didn't lie, I've been watching too much of it! LOL!
I had to use a boy image today, as it's my older brother's birthday today! So, I'll be thinking of him all day! I hope he has a wonderful birthday!

Today's a challenge day at Party Time Tuesdays. It's easy as 1, 2, 3! All you need is one image, 2 papers, and 3 different types of embellies. I don't do this often, but was searching for some ideas for my card, and saw this card on The Greeting Farm Blog, and totally fell in love with her sketch. I thought it worked perfectly for the challenge, so I cased it! Not normal for me to do that, but it's a fantastic card she made! So, thank you Ms. Tangii for some wonderful artwork! My cute papers were happy mail from my friend, Debbie! I love this paper line, it's called Hopscotch from K and Co. Such fun boy papers!

I hope you play along with us! Make sure you check out the Party Time blog to see what the other DT came up with, or click on their names to the right hand side of my blog roll call. They always have some inspirational work to show off! Be sure to link your artwork on the Party Time blog so we can see what you've made!

Magnolia Angels.

I've been a total crafting mood lately. Busting out some cards! Have to hit while the moment strikes, right?! Anyhow, played along with Just Magnolia's Sketch Challenge from Friday. My daughter's name is Gabrielle, and always makes me think of angels when I think of her name. Thinking of her makes me think of hot pink, cuz the kid just loves that color. With all that in mind, I went to an older Christmas stack from DCWV. I've had it for a few years now. It's full of fun colors, which I like because I'm pretty matchy matchy with clothes in my scrapping pages, and Gabi's always in pink. It's a perfect holiday stack because it has papers with colors both kids are most likely wearing. This card just screams Gabi. Bright fun colors, and glitter all over! LOL! Loud card, huh?!
I love the new angel sitting on the side like that. So cute! I wish I had switched my two panels, cuz I loved the snowflake paper, but its pretty covered up with the snowflakes now.
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies: Magnolia kit stamp, Magnolia sitting angel, DCWV Christmas stack, SU cardstock and ink, stickles, nesties, copics, Martha Nordic punch, and snowflake punch, nestie snowflake die cuts, EK punch,

Not Even A Mouse, TAC Hop

Joined in another TAC blog hop on Savvy Projects Blog. This one for winter projects. My MIL recently purchased this darling mice set from TAC, called Mice Day. I stamped off some images before mailing them to her.
These cute mice kept screaming "The Night Before Christmas" to me, so I had to make a card with them using that sentiment. There's another image with a darling mouse asleep in a mitten. Both just seem perfect for Christmas cards.
Didn't have a sentiment for anything from the book, so I computer generated a verse for the card. I embossed my green sheet with the snowflake cuttle bug folder and dusted the paper with Versamark Frost pad to give it some shine.

Hope you join in the fun using your TAC products. Than you can link them back up to the blog hop on the Savvy Projects blog. You can see other blogs using some TAC products as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies: Mice Day, Reese SWIC, Elizabeth buttons, copics, nesties, stickles, brown scrappers floss, Reese Ribbon, Martha Punch, distress ink, Glossy Effects glue,

Fluttering Birthday.

Had more time to play today. Trying to keep my mind off the stresses of life. I don't think it's working though. I'm feeling pretty stressed! LOL! I saw the challenge at Flutterby Wed was to make a window card. I haven't tried the tent card, and after seeing Danni's card, I just had to try. So much fun to make! And so cute, too! I think they are about as much fun at making an easel card! I followed the tutorial she put on her blog from SCS. Very easy to follow. Another challenge this card covers is All That's Scraps Wed challenge. Their challenge was to make a birthday card. Gotta say, I love how this card turned out. So bright and cheery! Perfect birthday card!
Thanks for stopping by.
Supplies: Copics, nesties, stickles, SU cardstock-cool Caribbean, melon mambo, SU Cool Caribbean ink, Verve Birthday sentiment.

Tickled Mercy.

Tickled Pink Stamps had a new release of their character named Cherrie. She's so cute. I had to grab two of the new digis they released. Played along with Mercy's sketch at Lord Have Mercy. Used some older papers that I've had for scrap booking by DCWV. I covered her tights in Smooch.
Thanks for stopping by.
Supplies: copics, nesties, stickles, SU cardstock-Cranberry Crisp, retired green, Cranberry Crisp ink, DCWV Christmas stack, gems,

Party Time Tuesday #20

Moring, party go-ers!! Ready to party again today?! Today's a challenge day at Party Time Tuesdays!! Woo hoo! I love challenges! There's a stunning photo for you to pull inspiration from, and you'll be hard pressed not to find something to move you! I loved the colors in this cake! It was so pretty! I can't get the photo to show up right, so make sure you peak at the Party Time Tuesday's Blog to see a nice clear photo of it! While you're peaking at the photo, make sure you check out what the other DT's made-or click on their names to the right of my blog. Also, they are holding a Design Team call on the Party Time Blog. You can find out all the information about that by clicking HERE! You have until the 30th of Nov. to apply!
Since the colors grabbed me next to the musical theme, I went with that fabulous Mariposa Die Cuts With a View stack. This stack is so pretty! This is the smaller stack, 4.5x6.5. Perfect for cards. I didn't want to cover up that pretty butterfly, so I angled the other DP paper to let the butterfly show off still. Than I used some roses I've had lying around for far too long. I used my Verve Big Wish set for the sentiment. The butterfly in the sentiment is from TAC.
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies: nesties, SU cardstock, ink, stickles, DCWV Mariposa stack, primas, TAC butterfly, Verve stamps,

Sketching All That Scraps.

Had some time today to play. Gotta love that extra hour, right? So, I decided to play the Wed. Challenge at All That's Scraps, and I used the Sat. Sketch 128 from this week. The challenge at All That's Scrap is to make a Christmas project not using red and green, or a theme with being grateful. I grabbed the digi version Darby the other day when it was released. Such a sweet image! I added flock with glitter to her hat, pompoms, and boots. Had to bling out the boots too. Gabi will love them that way.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pile It On #44, Furry Holiday Card.

Today is my last post with Pile It On Design Team. I can't believe I've been with them for two terms already! I've had a blast playing along with them on the Design team for the last six months! They were my first design team, and appericate them letting me join their team. I know I'll be back to play along with them, because I do love to pile on the challenges on cards!

On to my card. We had a sponsor today, Shelly's Images. I choose to play with her beautiful Sleigh Ride image. I had a lot of fun adding glitter to the sleigh, and singing to myself while I made the card. Crazy to think Christmas will be here soon! Time sure does fly!

Mojo Silent Night.

I just got this new punch, framed dots, yesterday from Martha Stewart at Michaels. Saw the sketch at Mojo Monday, and thought how perfect it would go with the sketch Monday. Totally cool punch! I'm dying to see what winter punches they'll have. Saw some stamp any where on the page ones. But the winter ones weren't up yet at Michaels. Pulled out a pretty winter set from Verve stamps that hadn't been broken in yet. I think the card turned out so pretty. I sprayed my image area with Frost Shimmer. Used my Copic clear glitter pen on the big star. It's very sparkly in person. Than topped the smaller stars with gems. My papers are from Cosmo Cricket Jolly something or other-can't remember off the top of my head. It's last year's paper line.
Other supplies: Sage Shadow cardstock and ink, River Rock ink.

Party Time Tuesday #19, Anything Goes.

It's another day to Party! Today's anything goes at Party Time Tuesdays! And there's a new prize up for grabs, so make sure you play every week, if you missed out on the fun prize last month. We love to see what you come up with, so make sure you link your creations back to the PPT blog so we can come by your blog and see what you've made. You can see what the DT came up with popping over to the PPT blog, or clicking on their names to the right of my blog.

My cute card today is made with TAC papers and image. The birthday sentiment is from Hero's Art. Cardstock is from SU. My sketch is from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, #131. She's colored with copics, and topped off with stickles. Oddly, not a lot of embellies on the card. It looked so nice by it's self, I didn't feel the need to add more to her.
Supplies: TAC image, Angelee SWIC paper, SU cardstock, and ink, Martha punch, nesties, stickles, copics.
