Creations by Penny - my first Design Team cards....

I made a couple cards on the weekend using some new images from CREATIONS BY PENNY, my newest Design Team venture! I was so excited to play I had a hard time deciding which ones to use first!!!!

I made this little 3x3 card for my DH - for part of his scavenger hunt to find his big gift!!!! I coloured with my koh-i-noor pencils & baby oil gel, then covered the whole heart with Crystal Effects. The DP on both these cards is Basic Grey (not sure which pad it came was in my scrap bin! Euphoria maybe?!?!?!)

This card is for my BIL's birthday in Jan. Inside it says "catch all the fun you can".....he is an avid fisherman so I couldn't resist using this Whimsy Fish by Penny!!!! Isn't he cute??? He makes me giggle!!!! He is coloured with copics & covered with Crystal Ice Stickles! The card is actually white, but I put the pink paper behind it so you could see it......I normally photograph my cards with a white background! After I took this picture I added 3 green rhinestones after It's your day... cuz they got cut off with the word window punch!

Head to Penny's store HERE to check out all her great designs!!! And she has a lot of freebies too, so go check it out!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Easel calendar

I cannot for the life of me remember if I posted this calendar or not...if I did, bear with me & SORRY! If I didn''re in for a treat!!! I bought this easel jewel case calendar kit at a small LSS 2 summers ago & it sat in my tub of "things to alter" until Oct. Crazy eh? I finally decided to make it & sell it at my first craft sale way back in Nov. It sold really quickly - I only wish I had bought more!!! I only know it is from Pine Cone Press & not even sure which store I got it from!!! Boo hooooo!!!! Anyway, here it is:

Front view

Side view

First 4 months decorated

Next 4 months decorated
Last 4 months decorated

It is a neat idea, and I'm sure it could be made with CD jewel cases - if anyone knows how, let me know!!! I might give it a try one day when I have some time!!!

Thanks for popping by! Have a GREAT week!!!!!

Corrosive Challenge - BLING it on!!!!

This weeks challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog is BLING IT ON!!!!! So, I made a sparkly Christmas ball card. I cut the circles with a Creative Memories circle cutter thingy that I borrowed from a friend - I think it is 6 inches in diameter. I attached them at the top with the little hook circle, added a ribbon, a button and some gold thread. The DP is some retired SU Holiday paper I had in my Christmas bin! The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set.

Head on over to the blog to check out the other DT's projects & to see what the prize is this week!!! Janet always has something great up her sleeve!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a great week!!!
