Kenny K's Challenge #3

Here is my first challenge with Kenny K. I love this sketch from Donna that I had to try it. I have found that I really like these great digitals and can't wait to see what is next. I know they are coming out with some new designs this weekend.


Kraftin Kimmie Challenge/Saturday Sketch Challenge

This week Kraftin' Kimmies challenge is a monochromatic card. I used a bit more in color for the skin and hair but I think she turned out great. I also use the Sketch provided for the Saturday Sketch but I did change the orientation to fit the type of card I was making.

Hope you like it.

Friday Sketch Challenge #112

Hi everyone,
Well, I am making my way back. I did some cards this week. Yes!!! This week I am hoping to get to some great challenges and I am starting with this one. I Thought I was being clever and combining a challenge with my DT project for the week for Nutshells, but I forgot that they have a challenge this week which is anything but a card. I made a Well, I have another item I made after this and will post it next. I used my new cute princess stamps from Nutcrafters. I wanted to use a bit different coloring and I though this worked. I also followed this great sketch from Jeanette for Friday Sketch.

NutCrafters Fun

Well, it seems that I have just been "out of it". I haven't stamped in about a week and a half and I am away for the weekend. I hope to get back on track next week and do some challenges and start hitting and visiting some blogs. I have been fighting with what I thought to be strep throat and now have found out it is some kind of nose think. Hopefully the, very strong, drugs they put me on will do the trick. I made this card about 2 weeks ago for my neighbor. She has a grandson that just got his divers license. Hope you like it. I ended coloring his hair brown. I waited til I know the color of her grandson's hair.

Nutshells Challenge #20

This bi-weekly challenge, USE A MOJO MONDAY SKETCH, is a fun one. I hope you like it. I used one of the Mojo Monday sketches from last week. I got the dates mixed up and thought I needed to get this one out last week. I still think it will work. I really liked the sketch but I did modify it a bit because I turned it into a A2 card instead of a square. I LOVE the square cards but I know that it will be cheaper to send this way.
I used my new stamp from Nutcrafters that is not even out in their store yet, so if you like it keep looking back it will be out soon. It is from their Ice cream collection. I love ice cream about you. Great for a card to the girfriends.

Stamps: Nutcrafters, Lizzie Anne
Papers: SU Pretty in Pink, black, DP-basic gray
Embellishments: ribbon, copics

Just Magnolia #62 Criss Cross Card

Hi all, this weeks challenge over on Just Magnolia is to try a Criss Cross Card. Now I have seen these around alot and have been wanting to try one but have not done it yet, so I thought...this is the time. I started by selecting my image and coloring. I then made this great card using SU Perfect Plum cardstock and dp. I found that the image fit better by turning the card. I added a tab, flower and Bella drops. The flower was a white flower but I used my inkpad from SU and painted it. I think it turned out great and will use that tech. again.

Stamp: Magnolia Bridesmade Tilda
Paper: SU Perfect Plum
Embellishments: Stamping Bella, White brad, flower
