Simon Says.....All that SPARKLES!!!

This weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is ALL THAT SPARKLES - so BRING ON THE BLING!!!!!

I used some Shimmer paper from PaperMania that my DT Sister LOLS gave me for my birthday - it is sooo shiny and shimmery I HAD to use it for this challenge!!!! The sentiment is from SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS - a Simon Says Stamp exclusive set which is my ALL time FAVE!!!! The tutu stamp is from another SSS exclusive set called "Heather's Dance Ballet Tap Jazz" which is GREAT for all those little dancers in your life!!! I have 3 neices that all take dance so this set gets used a LOT!!!!! The ribbon is lilac organza and I added a charm, some stickles and some rhinestones.

We hope you can join us this week for this challenge!!! I KNOW there are lots of you out there that LOVE the BLING!!! How can you NOT love all things that sparkle??? Come on, join us!!!!!

Three.... Three Challenges in One!!!!

LOL..ok, I have NO idea where that came from...was it a commercial or something???

Anyway, I managed to combine THREE challenges into one card....yahoooo!!!! I surprised even myself!!! LOL

Here is my card:

And here are the challenges I am entering it into:

1. BEE CRAFTY - the theme is DISTRESSING (I did distress all the papers - hard to see, but honest...I did!!!) and to use a Digi image

2. DARE U 2 DIGI - the theme is NO squares allowed - has to be a shaped card, and use a Digi image

3. WENDY'S DIGITAL DOODLING - the challenge is to use Cupcake Tilly (a FREEBIE!!!!!!) and to tell you all about Digital Doodling. So, here I am.....enabling...I mean...telling you about another GREAT blog!!!! I stumbled upon this blog through a new friends blog (HI LIZ!!) The Tilly images that Wendy has are ADORABLE!!!!! The sad part is, she isn't selling these images... YET!!! IF she gets enough interest she might sell a few of them...sooooo, pop over to her blog, take a peek and leave her a comment telling her you'd love to buy her images!!!! I know I will!!!!

Now, about the card:

I cut the base with my Circle nesties, then layered the 2 DPs on top (both Basic Grey - Sugared) and popped Tilly up. The image is from Digital Doodling and I coloured her using Copics. I added stickles to the cupcake to make it look like sprinkles and added a little Sakura Stardust gelly roll pen to the flowers in her hair! Isn't she cute??

THAT wraps up my card - for THREE challenges!! Wheeee!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by again and again & for leaving comments!! I LOVE reading them, they truly make my day!!!! THANKS!!!

Have a great weekend!!!! Happy Halloween!!!!

Ohh boy, this will be hard! I have LOTS of favourites!!!! LOL For this card I used Prima flowers and rhinestones!

Also, this weeks challenge is sponsored by Tracey at FRED, SHE SAID. WOW, I don't know how I missed these cute digital stamps, but am I ever glad I found them!!!!!! HERE is Tracey's blog, and HERE is the link to the store!!!

Tracey has also very generously given the Design Team an image to work with - how cute is this?? This is Rosie with Flowers.

After reading her blog, I noticed that this Rosie is actually her new puppy!!! VERY VERY CUTE!!! I spent a long time browsing her store, she has some VERY VERY cool things in there that I want to try!!! Doodle Dallions, paper piercing templates, floral digis and paper packs are some of them...and she has some really neat decoupage kits too!!! Off I go - shopping time!!! LOL

Two... Two Challenges in One!!!

Well, today I had some time to craft as Tim went out "racing" - his new hobby is racing RC (remote control) cars & trucks. So, he is gone most Sat. & Sun. nights so I have a quiet house to craft!!!! Yaaaaa me!!!!! I was able to combine 2 challenges with this one card:

The first challenge I am entering this into is the HIGH HOPES challenge, which is ALL ABOUT KIDS. They have some GREAT kid stamps, and I thought this little fairy would be perfect for my niece's birthday in March (planning WAY ahead!!! LOL)

The second challenge I am entering this into is the STAMPS and SMILES challenge which is to use this really cool sketch! I couldn't wait to try it!!! Head over to the blog to see the sketch!

I used Elegant Eggplant CS, the DP is from a paper pad from Daisy & Dandelion and the image is from High Hopes. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella (I think!) and I coloured the fairy with Copics and added lots of glitter!!!! The card does open up too, and inside it just says "Birthday Wishes" but I really like the front pocket - you can put anything in there really - a gift card, a book mark, or a tag like I did!!! The options are endless!!!

Thanks for looking!!!!! I hope you all have a GREAT week!!!! I sure hope mine is better than last week!!!!

Corrosive Challenge ... make a SHAPED card

The challenge this week at Janet's Corrosive Challenge blog is to make a SHAPED card, something different, heart, star, circle, oval, etc. I used my Baby Girl Dress template and made another baby card! I traced it onto cardstock and the front piece onto DP then adhered it. I sponged all the edges, and added ribbon and flowers to make it girlie!! This is for my Sister in law who HATES pink and purple but she just had a baby girl...LOL

I'd love it if you joined us on this challenge - I love to see shaped cards, they are so fun to make and to give!!!! Head over the the Corrosive Challenge blog now to see what the other DT members have made!!!!

Have a great week!!!!
