I'm on a roll....a few challenges in one post!!

Seriously, on a ROLL!!! I went through my Google Reader & picked out a bunch of challenges to do & started doing them!!! All my DT committments were done, so I thought I'd play in some this week!!!!!

The first thing is being entered into the Fab n Funky Challenge blog which is an easy one this week - make anything for any occasion!!! So, I made a coupon book/holder thingy!!! LOL I bought a coupon holder from the dollar store and covered it. I added Kitchen Tilda and a jar (both from Magnolia) and am thinking about adding a notepad or post it note pad on the inside - what do you think??

Here is the front piece (I might add the note pad or post it note pad here?!?!?! What do you think??)

And here is the inside, with labelled slots to put your coupons in so they are easy to find!

This next card I am entering into 3 challenges. The image is Snow Dog from Designed2Delight, a new digi store I just discovered! Faith has very cute images, go check it out!!! The paper is from my Christmas scraps bin, and the snowflakes are punched out of the swirly vellum. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Here are the 3 challenges I am entering this into:
1. CPS which was to follow this sketch (which I turned on its side):

2. Bee Crafty which was to use a Digi image and make a Thank you card

3. Scrapbook Trends magazine which is to use snowflakes

This third card is being entered into The Pink Elephant challenge which was a recipe this week: 2 Designer papers, 3 buttons and snowflakes. I used another digi image from Designed2Delight cuz this snowman is just too cute!!
And lastly, this fourth card is being entered into Digital Tuesday Challenge which is Valentine's! Guess I better get a head start on those so this challenge is perfect!!! I used a digi image from Karen's Doodles - another digi company I just discovered & fell in love with! How cute is this beaver???

Well, that is all I have for you today - I know it was a lot & I don't normally show 4 cards in one post but they all had deadlines right around the same time, so thought it was best to post them all together!! I hope you made it through the whole post!!!!! THANKS if you did!!! LOL
Have a great day!!!

High Hopes Challenge #57

And another challenge I managed to finish & upload in time!! Yeahhhh me!!! LOL This week the challenge at High Hopes Challenge blog is to use this sketch with a High Hopes image. And I have always loved my High Hopes stamps, so any excuse to pull them out, I am ALL OVER!!!! LOL

I used Timothy Tiger so I could make another GUY birthday card to have on can never have enough of those!!!! The cardstock is Really Rust & Old Olive (SU) and the DP is from Basic Grey (Indian Summer). I coloured Timothy with my Koh-i-noor pencils and Baby Oil Gel!

Thanks for hanging out at my blog!!! Have a great day!!!

Creations by Penny - Gumball machine

(this is the 2nd post for today, please scroll down to see the other! Thanks!)

This gumball machine is a new release from Creations by Penny! Isn't it cute? You can do so much with this!!!

This first card I went with the "gumball" look, circle DP (SU), giant brads, and sparkley brads. I covered the glass of the machine with Crystal Effects to give it dimension, then added the sentiment (SU - Teeny Tiny Wishes). The ovals are cut with my Nestabilities.

I used the same DP pack (SU) for this second card, but the sentiment is from a Gina K set I've had for a long time!

And, here is my card - it is Shy Hilda.

I used some papers from a TAC pack called Frutti Fusion because they were bright and vibrant & matched the colours on her dress! I coloured her with Koh-i-noor pencils and Baby Oil Gel. The ribbon is Plum Pudding from PTI and the flowers and rhinestones are from my stash!!

"These are a few of my favourite things" - Corrosive Challenge #45

THAT is a great song, from a GREAT movie...but it is also the challenge set by ME at The Corrosive Challenge blog this week!!
Use TWO of your favourite embellishments on your card or project!

It was hard to pick TWO only.....and I kinda cheated and added more - but it's sooo hard!! LOL I have SO MANY FAVOURITES!!!!

The DP is from a paper pack from TAC called Gentle Beginnings and the image is from Hambo Stamps. I coloured it with Copics and added stickles to the water, crystal effects to the glass and to her sunglasses. I added At You Spica gel pens to her flip flops and umbrella. She looks so comfy on that inner tube, makes me LONG for summer time!!!! Only 4 more months of winter!!! LOL

My favourite embellies on this card is the charm and the rhinestone! I LOVE my rhinestones and my charms!!!! Even though there are other embellies on here, those are 2 of my VERY favourite!!!!

I hope you will join us at The Corrosive Challenges blog this week for this fun challenge! Head over there to see what the other DT members have created for you!!! AND there's PRIZES!!!! So, get going!!!!
