2-IN-1 CHALLENGE: Cute Card Thursday #105 & Sketch Saturday #96

Time for another Challenge. I put these two together thinking that they went well an came out loving the results. I just got this image from Mo and I think she is adorable. I went with the typical pink for the first one, I will mix it up later.
The two challenges that I did were for CCR which was to use Dimensions. Not to hard for me because I use them all the time. I popped out the sentiment here. I guess I could have done more but I like this. I also am enting in the Sketch Saturday. This will be my first entry with them. I love working with sketches so I am looking forward to doing a lot of them.

Hope you all like it. Have a good day.

KLSNS Challenge #22 - In a Box

Hi everyone...Here is my entry for this weeks KLSNS challenge, In a Box. We were asked this week to create a box and decorate it. I am not all that great with boxes. First off I have no kids so the use for them is minimal. I know that you all use them for school treats and such. I also have trouble making them. Usually they are off in someway. I did however make one yesterday from a pattern over on SCS and it was great. IT WAS JUST TO SMALL. I couldn't decorate it with any of my cut stamps from KLSNS. So I resorted to this one that is from SU. I got a pack that you punch out. Yes, ladies I cheated there. I did however do all the decorating myself. I almost couldn't fit this stamp on, but I think it turned out cute. I am going to use it as a ...just because box for a friend. I hope you like it.

Just a quick shout out for my DT. Remember to look up all their great work too. Everyone loves to get people to see their blog and to comment. There links are on the right.

Now don't forget to come over to KLSNS for the challenge. Maybe you can show me how it is done. Remember your entries need to be on Friday, April 2 at midnight.
There are new challenge details on the design team blog for KL Stampin N Scrappin so check it out by clicking here!! Come on and join the fun for a chance to win a surprise Easter package this week worth $15-20!!

Reminders: Only a few more days left to use the March code, and if you haven't already -- sign up for the mailing list to get special offers at Kelly's store that aren't always announced here on the blog. :)

I will be back on Saturday evening to fill in the details for my box. I am off on a day off today.

KLSNS Challenge #22 - Stitching

Well, here is the great new challenge over at KLSNS this week. We have been given the challenge of "stitching". Yes, I thought....wow an easy one. I love to stitch and I know how to use a sewing machine...I have been sewing since I was 10. I have made cloths, pillows......you name it. I have even done a few cards. I am ready. Well, not this time. Seems that each time I get on the new sewing machine that I got for Christmas something comes up. This time I wanted to use some of the great unique stitches that this baby has to offer....I ended up breaking a needle...oops. Then I thought I broke the machine when I couldn't get the needle to stop hitting the pressure foot. Low and behold. I figured it out. Took longer. Used simpler stitches. BUT I got it done. I hope you like this little patriotic card.

Ok, on to the Challenge. You will have until next Friday, March 26th to come over to KLSNS and enter your wonderful stitched card. (remember the sewing machine is your friend.) Please join us we, the DT, love to see what you create.

I also noticed that Kelly is looking for anyone interested in joining the DT. This stint is for 4 months and she is now looking for the next group. If you are interested come on over to KLSNS and see what you need to do to apply. I can say I have had so much fun I wish I could stay for another term.

Papers: SU real red, night of navy, Generic pattern paper
Embellishments: Dew Drops, Sewing
Copics: E00, Y21, YR23, R29, N3, B91, B93, B95, N5

Just Magnolia #46 - Sketch

Well, this week it seems I have more time and I am feeling better so I decided to do a few challenges. The first is this lovely sketch from Just Magnolia. I try to make it over there to do challenges but seem to fall short at doing them each week. I love Magnolias and I am going to try to do better.
I got this cute Tilda around Christmas time, colored her and being I had my Christmas Cards done, left her. Now I though this would work for this sketch. I also thought she would be ok as something other then Christmas.

Paper: SU Night of Navy, Curry, DP-SU
Stamps: Magnolia-Christmas Morning Tilda, SU sentiment

KLSNS Challenge #21

Well, another week, another challenge. This one from KLSNS is a sketch challenge from me great DT mate, Jacilynn. I changed it up just a bit to fit a smaller card but other then that I think I stayed with the basics. This is one of my new stamps that is from KL Stampin' N' Scrappin'. I have noticed others using her and think she is great so I had to have her myself. I chose some different combinations of colors here but I was trying to get the feel of the Japanese paper I used. I made this card for my friends Birthday on Sunday and she loves the Oriental look.

Remember to come on over to KLSNS this week and give this sketch a try. If you have never done a sketch or challenge....try one they are fun and addicting. You will have until Friday, March, 19th to enter and if you are "ONE OF THE CHOSEN ONES", you will get a great blinkie to put on you blog.

Friday Sketch #92

ok, I said I would be back and I almost forgot. I wanted to enter this card for the Friday Sketch Challenge so I just uploaded it right away...now I have more time to talk about it. I just got this great stamp for Kraftin' Kimmie and had to use it. Isn't she great. I wanted to choose different colors and saw this great pieces from MME. I think they work out wonderful for the Pirate image. I did not have the correct copic colors so I used some combinations of them and I think they worked out better then If I had perfect colors. The pants I used BG72 and went over it with YG91, it really gived it the old washed look. Anyway this one was fun to do. Hope you like it.

Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie
Paper: SU Sage, Mustard, DP-MME
Embellishments: eyelets, gems, SU-ribbon, brad

KLSNS Challenge #20 Buttons

This weeks Challenge at KLSNS is BUTTONS. We are asked to use buttons on our cards. I chose this cute image from CC Design that is available at the KL Stampin' N' Scrappin' store. I also used this glass glitter that Kelly has in the store also. I love the great way it shines but I would color the balloon beforehand next time. I think it would work a bit better. I am amazed at how this stuff looks and works.

Come on over to KLSNS and try this great challenge. It is open until next Friday, March 12th at midnight.

Stamps: CC Design, Party
Papers: SU Barely Banana, Tempting Turquious, Basic Grey
