Karen's Doodles USA Challenge card.....

This week the challenge at Karen's Doodles USA Challenge blog is a sketch. Here it is! I think this sketch works great with Karen's really showcases them!!! LOVE it!!!!!

And here is my card:

It is for my nephew who is having his Confirmation at the beginning of May, so Karen's Confirmation set was PERFECT!!!! You get 5 digi images (3 girls, 2 boys) for only $12! GREAT deal!!!! I also bought the Holy Communion set because many of my students have their First Communion this year so I thought I would make them each a bookmark using the images!
I am also going to use these images for the invitations to the Sacramental Lunch the school puts on for all the students who have had a sacrament in the last year!!!

The card base is black, with a Brilliant Blue layer. The Cross (Verve Stamps) was stamped on black with gold ink. I tried to cover it with Crystal Effects but it looked this is the THIRD cross I stamped and cut out..ugh!!! LOL I am really happy with how it turned out, it is simple but perfect for a 10 year old boy!!! Inside it says "May God bless you on your special day" (SU) I coloured the boy with Copics and it took me a long time to get the hair colour right! It is still a bit too blonde for Brody, but that's ok, I am SURE he won't notice!!!!
Thanks for popping in!!! Wish me luck!!!!

Simon Says....Let's go to the movies!!! and Dry Embossing

This week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is "Let's Go To The Movies" and DRY EMBOSSING ~~ I don't know about you but I love going to the movies! Too bad it is sooooo expensive!!!!! The last movie we saw was Hot Tub Time Machine - it was funny but not worth the $23 we spent to go to it!! LOL The BEST movie I've seen so far that WAS worth the money, was Avatar!! OMG, that movie was AWESOME!!!!! Anyone else see it and LOVE it? Anyone hate it??

Anyway, on to my project for this week!! I have used a LOT of Tim Holtz products this week!!!
I made a card and a gift card holder. The stamp set I used was a Tim Holtz set called "At the Movies" is GREAT!!!! I also used Tim Holtz film strip ribbon - which is really neat! It feels just like real isn't soft like "ribbon" is TOTALLY cool stuff!!!! I distressed using Distress Inks (Walnut) as well. The D'vine swirls folder for my Cuttlebug is used on the gift card holder. I of course had to add Tilda, so she could showcase the movie ticket!!! LOL You can get ALL of the stuff I used at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!!

Karen's Doodles USA Challenge card

This card is being entered into Karen's Doodles USA challenge. The theme is something old, something new! I found this rose charm that I have had FOREVER, I think it was from a charm bracelet I bought at a flea market!! The something new is the designer paper I just got....which I love cuz it is my favourite colours!!!! This image is Rosie Loves to Dance, and I coloured her with Copics. The sentiment is from a Clear Dollar Stamps set called Cute Critters.

Off to dinner with the have a great evening!! THIS is my SECOND post for the day, so please scroll down to see the other post!!! THANKS!!

The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Textures

This weeks theme at The Corrosive Challenge blog is TEXTURE!!!! I love texture, and my first instinct was to do dry embossing but decided to try something different. So, I dusted off my bottles of FUN FLOCK to create a fuzzy dog!!!!!! I hope you can see the fuzz!!!! LOL

This image is by Mo Manning. I coloured it with Koh-i-noor pencils and Baby Oil Gel, added some stickles and a heart shaped rhinestone for the dog's tag. The papers were in my "too pretty to throw away" box so I used them together on top of Razzleberry CS (SU). The ribbon is from PTI.

I hope you will join us this week! Can't wait to see your textures you create!!!! So many fun ones to play with......have fun!!!!!
