Birthday Bear

Isn't this bear cute? And his sign is blank so you can add anything you want!!! AND, he is a digi so you can get him RIGHT NOW!!!!! He is Penny D's creation and you can find him HERE at Creations by Penny!!!

I coloured him with my koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil gel and just kinda went with a layout on a whim! I don't normally do that because they usually turn out horrific, but I kinda like this one!!! It is simple, but it showcases the bear well!!! The sentiment is from Stampin Up!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!!!

Owly bookmark......courtesy of Dustin Pike

Dustin Pike is at it again!!! He is asking for our help to send cards to a little girl who has leukemia. That man has a heart of gold!!! He is also offering 3 Owl digis for us to use because she likes owls!! Go check it out HERE!!!! CUTE eh?? Anyway, I thought I would make her a bookmark, hoping she likes to read!!! I coloured the owl with my koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil gel and used some little epoxy stickers & alphabet stickers to personalize it! I used stickles on the paint palette and crystal effects on his eyes for dimension. It is in the mail today, so I hope she likes it!!!! If you can help send a card to cheer up a little girl, go check out Dustin's blog!!

Thanks for popping by!!!

Simon Says....Happy Hoppers Blog Hop & RECIPE CHALLENGE!!!!

WHAT A GREAT week this is going to be!!! Have we got surprises for YOU!!!!!!
First of all, this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is to use a "recipe", I'm not asking you to BAKE!!!! LOL I don't bake at all, but THIS kind of recipe, I can handle!!!
On your card, you are to use 1 image, 2 designer papers and 3 DIFFERENT types of embellishments.

Here is my card:

I used 2 papers from a K&C company stack of paper I've had FOREVER! The card base is Vintage Violet, a retired SU In Color which I love and have hoarded for about 4 years!!!! LOL The 3 different embellies are flowers, rhinestones and a button. And my image is a House Mouse image I got from Simon Says Stamp. I kinda cheated but the sentiment isn't really considered an "image" ... is it??? The sentiment is from Inkadinkado & I got that from Simon Says Stamp too!

A happy hello

I made this quick Scrapling card to send off to a friend who was having some job issues. It is a Shy Bear from Squigglefly - doesn't he look like he is up to no good?? LOL It is a very simple card & I used up a bunch of scraps!!! The Yo Yo Yellow was scrap & so was the DP!!! The sentiment was in my extra images scrap bin too, so I really lucked out!!! LOL I coloured it with Copics then added Crystal Effects to the fish bowl!

Corrosive Challenge Blog - SEWING

This weeks challenge at The Corrosive Challenge blog is to SEW on your card or project. It can be hand sewed, machine sewed or faux sewed!!! I thought I would be adventurous and try hand stitching. This took a really long time....I had to line up the holes, punch them all the way through, then sew (I used embroidery floss)! The corners were a little wonky, which is why I added the flowers!! LOL Shhhh, don't tell!!! The angel is from CC Designs and the sentiment is from a sentiment set from Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you have a chance to head over to the challenge blog to see what the other DT members have done, and to check out the prizes!!!! Have a great week!!!
