Lets Celebrate!

Its that time again, OSAAT has a new challenge.  This week we challenge you to celebrate.  This weeks sponsor is Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Boutique.  Please stop into all the lovely DT's blogs and give them some love, we all so appreciate the comments.  So here is my creation :
 I "tried" to make a circle card using my cricut, it didn't work out so well, but here it is.  This lovely digi Teddy with Scarf, is from Stampin Dragon, avaiable at Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Boutique.  He is so versatile, he works great for Christmas but also he would be great on a baby card or maybe even a valentines card/layout.  I colored him with my CTMH water color pencils.  The noel stamp is also from CTMH.  The paper is new, but I didn't save the end that tells you who makes it.  SORRY!  The ribbon I got at Michaels. The pearls are from the local dollar store.   I did no techniques, nothing different besides trying for a circle card.  I will have to try that again.  
Don't forget to stop by OSAAT, and join in our fun.y

Halloween Card......The first of the season

So I got the stamp of the month with CTMH and it has this awesome skull.  And I  just had to used it.  Simply Bettys challenge for today is to use skeletons, and Digis with Attitude! has a color challenge going on, so I thought to combine the two.  I also used a old sketch fro The Sweet Stop.  The geen paper is embossed and all paper is textured.

Pink Birthday

Good Monday morning!  The sun is shining and it is suppose to be a beautiful day here today.  I am thinking that it might be a good day for the park.  But this morning I have been able to sneak in a few minutes to craft and this is what I have come up with.  Stitchy is sponsoring a  Sundays with Crissy this month and this is one of her digis.  Its called sweet treat, and you can get it here at Stitchy Bear Stamps and I did it creations boutique.  I have used faux stitching around the whole card.  The frame is from the Cindy Loo cartridge for my Cricut. The DSP if from DCWV Doodle Around Stack.  I followed the sketch from this weeks challenge over at The Sweet Stop.  Oh and don't forget to check out One Stitch at a time challenge blog this week as it is Embellish it !  how easy is that.  Thanks for stopping in, have a great day.

Embellish it at OSAAT

Good Sunday morning!  Hope that your weekend has been fabulous.  Mine is turning out to be grand!  The hubby and I are off to the tattoo convention today, I can't wait.  We missed it last year so I am hoping to come home with some new ink.  Cross our fingers.  Any how on to the really reason for this post.  Its Sunday and that means a new challenge over at OSAAT.   This week our challenge to you is to embellish it with you favorite things.  So here is my creation:
So this paper is a digital paper by JLJ Design, available here at Stitchy Bear & I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.  I have to tell you that after making this purse card I have a totally new respect for digi papers.  They are fantastic, when I messed it  up the first few times with the cutting I didn't have to decide on a new paper or run to the store to purchase another piece. I am so hooked now!  Just wish I had a 12 x 12 printer.  
I did faux stitching around the edges of the purse, and apparently forgot to do the bottom.  LOL.  I took just a black piece of card stock and glued it to the center then add some beautiful lace.  I used Velcro dot to keep the purse close.  I made the flower and used a button stamp for the center.  I added pearls all around the purse to give it that little bit of bling with out distracting from the gorgeous paper.  So there it is, hope you all have enjoyed my ramblings, sorry.  Have an awesome Sunday!

Christmas Card Swap

On October 23 I am hosting a Christmas Card Swap, kinda like a cookie exchange.  There will be about 20 gals gathering to make Christmas cards, eat, chat, and just have fun in general.  I have prizes and challenges to go on.  There will also be a Stampin UP! demonstrator there as well.  I can't wait!  
So here are a couple of my example to show the gals to help get there creative juices flowing. 

 This card I used a heart punch to make the wreath, some ribbon and a hand written sentiment.  That part didn't turn out so well cause I used textured paper.
 This is my non traditional card.  I love to used non Christmas colors on my Christmas card.  The sentiment is from Close to my Heart, as are the snow flakes. Really all product is.  I added a little BLING on the snowflakes to give them a little dimension.

Last but not least.  And definitely not last on my list of too do's.   This I think is my fave.  I stamped a couple of charistmas balls on to a sheet of paper then scanned them into my pc, so that I could resize them to fit my card.  Then stamps are both from CTMH as is the paper.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart.

Have an awesome night, and thanks for stopping in.

DT Call

It DT call time over at Paper Romance.  Its a 6 month "shift", all the details are posted on the blog.  The call ends November 4.

Off Sick

Hello everyone.  I hope everyone has been good.  We have gone on sick leave here for a few weeks, know I think we have finally kicked it.  Knock on wood.  So I have had a little time to scrap in the last few nights.  And here is one of my creations.

Look I even finished the inside!  So the digi is from Karens Doodles, a freebie I found.  I colored it with my CTMH water color pencils.  All the paper is from Shabby Princes as is the quote on the outside. I fastened it on with a couple of copper brads.   The quote on the inside is form on the net.  I used a sketch I got off a blog, but I'm not sure whos.  Sorry!  I made this card for friends who invited us over for Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.  EXCELLENT!  He is a chef, and she is a genius in the kitchen.  I love not having to cook when I am sick.  It has been so nice too be back, and I promise I will have a few more posts up in the next few days.  I am entering it into the following challenges:
