Second Saturday challenge......

I am entering this card - an ATC turnaround - for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog-challenge code HMFMC130

 I made the ATC first, then mounted it on Green Galore so it popped from the DP.  I coloured the image using Copics then coloured the water with chalk. I think this is the first time I've inked up this image...OMG that's BAD! It is sooo cute!!! He looks so relaxed!!!!


 Have a Great Day!

Squeaking in another one for today.....

I made this card for the Catch the Bug challenge - which is a photo inspiration challenge. When I saw the photo I immediately thought of farms and  harvests and I adore the colours in the photo. SO this is what I came up with!  

I used Bugaboo Cowboy Fence for this birthday card for my brother! The DP is from SU - it was Wild West or something like that, from AGES ago..but I found one little piece in my scrap box! Wheeeee!!!! I think the twine totally sets off the "farm" feel! 

Thanks for popping by again.......I promise I'm done for today! Maybe tomorrow I will have more for you!!!!  LOL  

Another challenge entry.....

Good morning! ME AGAIN!  I am entering this card into the Color Throwdown Challenge - blue, white, olive and yellow! All of those colours (plus pink) are in the DP so I hope this qualifies!!!!

I am also entering this into Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - which is GIRLS!!! 

This is a stamp from MAYZY ART STAMPS which was a freebie awhile back!  The sentiment is from a Gina K stamp set I've had FOREVER!!!!  I thought they worked well together!!!

Thanks for stopping by! HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! I am hoping I will get some crafty time today - after my visit to the Doctors!

Another challenge entry

Ok, you're all probably wondering "What has gotten into Chris?? Why, all of a sudden, is she entering all these challenges??"  Well....let me tell you!  Last Wed. about 2 am I woke up with unbelievable dizziness - it felt like I was in a blender with no end in sight.  I fell back asleep, and at about 4 am, woke up again, with even worse dizziness.  When I got up in the morning the nauseousness hit, I was shaky, dizzy and generally felt like total crap all around.   I stayed home Thurs. and on Fri. went to my family Dr. who told me I have something called "Labyrinthitis"  - go ahead..laugh! I DID!  Basically it is an inflammation of the inner ear that causes severe dizziness and nausea - many know this as Vertigo.  AWESOME!  I'm a am I supposed to deal with that AND teach  8 year olds???  The last thing my Dr. tells me is that I can't drive (OMG) and I can't work, for at least 3 weeks...........WHAT?!?!?!?!  In between dizzy spells, I feel fine........but when the "dizzies" hit....look out!  So, I've spent a good part of the last 5 days, colouring like a mad woman.  Watching TV makes me nauseous, reading makes me nauseous, and I can't go whats a girl to do?? LOL   So, in between dog walks and dizziness, I colour & make cards! I'd like to get a good start on my Christmas cards! Sooooooooooo, you might be seeing a LOT more of me on here in the next few weeks!!!! :)

I am entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge - their letter this time around is U - Up to you
and at Crafty Sentiments Designs, the theme is Bows or Ribbons. I am entering this card using a Digi Garden image called Peppermints Present.  Cute eh??
The card base is white and the DPs are from a Christmas pack I've had forever - from Paper Mania. The silver ribbon is from my stash! 

Thanks for stopping by - have a GREAT day!!!

Entering a few challenges......

  I have made a little box using a House Mouse stamp that I've had forever...can't remember the name of it off hand!   The box template I purchased from Taylored Expressions & I filled it with little chocolates for a friend.  I kept it very simple with the same image on both sides of the box. 

 This week the challenge at Addicted to Stamps is ANIMAL FRIENDS.

 Penny Black and More challenge blog has an Animal Magic challenge this week.  

A new challenge blog I found, Challenges 4 Everybody is having an Anything Goes challenge this week.

Another new challenge blog I found in my travels is Eclectic Ellapu - and its their first challenge and it is also Anything Goes!  Congrats on your first ever challenge!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!
