Saturated Canary challenge card....another one for fun!!!

Yahhh ME!!!! LOVING the time I have to create just for fun!!!!  I am entering this card into the Saturated Canary Challenge - which is ANYTHING but Square or Rectangle.  I have used my Grand Calibur Nesties (Labels One) for the base of the card & the layers, and made a fun shaped card using a freebie image from a few weeks back.  You can check out the ADORABLE images HERE!

The CS is Melon Mambo (SU) and the DP is from my stash (an old TAC paper pad that has lost its cover!) I coloured her with Copics, used my flourish punch and some rhinestones.  Now that I look at it, I almost think it needs something else....but not really sure what?!~?!?!  Any suggestions??

Anyway, wish me luck on this one!!!
Have a GREAT weekend!

A challenge card just for fun!!!

I had a little time today in between appointments so thought I'd peruse the challenge blogs and see what I can find and try to enter a couple.  I really liked the challenge at Cute Card Thursday (Winged Things) and I liked the sketch at Dutch I coloured up this adorable image from Emerald Faeries, and set to work!  I used some bits of scraps that I had from a previous project sitting on my desk. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusive set, and the bling is from my stash! 

So, I'm entering this card into those 2 challenges, wish me luck!!!  I am thrilled to be able to make some cards just for fun!!!  And I was running low on Anniversary cards too, so this is perfect. 
Have a GREAT Friday!!!

Winter blues.....challenge card

I was perusing the challenge blogs and one challenge in particular grabbed my attention - it was Tuesday Throwdown with Winter Blues - which I definitely have!  We've had a pretty mild winter so far, but I'm so ready for my capris and sandals!!!

So here is a card I made for my Brother in law's birthday last Saturday.  The image is from Kenny K and the sentiment is made on the computer.  I added a button and twine to keep it masculine! It unfortunately doesn't follow the challenge on Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge, but that's ok!!!  I had fun making it!  The CS is Brilliant Blue & Basic Black from SU.

Love to Create - Pink, Navy + 1 other colour

Please scroll down to see my other post for today! THANKS!

For our third challenge at LOVE TO CREATE CHALLENGE BLOG, we have a colour challenge for you - PINK, NAVY BLUE + 1 other colour! 

Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking & More, so be sure to check out the other DT girlies creations and join us!!!

Here is my card for the week! 

And a side view so you can see the dimension of the butterflies.

My "other" colour is the green branches.  I wanted to give it an "outdoorsy" feel, and the image is intended to look like a black & white polaroid...not sure I did it justice, but its kinda cute! I just hand wrote the sentiment as if someone would do that on a photo.

I have used paper from my scraps bin, so not even sure where they are from, although I'm pretty sure the DP is from SU.  The butterfly is my new EK Success BUTTERFLY LAYERING PUNCH that I got from Simon Says Stamp.  The other punch is from Martha Stewart

Head on over to the challenge blog to check it out!!! HOPE to see you joining us!!!!!

Incy Wincy Challenge - Birthday!!!

This week Incy Wincy Designs Challenge blog has a great challenge for you -

FUN hey? I hope you'll join us!!!

This week we are being sponsored by... KnK Designs

The DT were very fortunate to be given a few sets to use!!! Be sure to go check them out if you haven't already!!!!

Here is my card for this week:

I have used KOLAR'S BIRTHDAY image & sentiment.  Cute eh??
MY CS base is SU Melon Mambo and the DP is from my stash.   I coloured Kolar with Copics and used my Colorless Blender to try to make him fuzzy.  I saw a tutorial on it a couple years ago, and couldn't find it again, so I just "winged it"...Not sure I like how it turned out, but it does look better in person.

Have fun and good luck!!! I hope you'll join us this week!
