Sorry I have not been around but we have been a little busy here and had some thing to take care of and now that things are done I should be around more. The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge has stated today and the twist for this week is ANYTHING GOES. If you can stop by and check out all the wonderful cards the designers have done they have out done themselves. Our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo and the image I choose to use is called Kidz punky topper.
You really need to be proud of me and you might ask why???? My scrap ben is getting very low, all the cards I have been making I have used my scraps and even for most of my die cuts. I do have to say for my solid scraps I do still have a lot but my pattern papers is so low. The spellbinder used to cut out the image is called labels 40, for some reason I really like this one and it is a good size for a lot of my images.
You can see here that it is 3D and I see in the upper left corner it says MEOW and you really can not tell, sorry!
The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations sunflower stamp and Heartfelt Creations sunflower die cut. The flower center used some earth elements texture. The greenery is Martha Steward Branch and Fond.
How do you like my mouse? I found him with all my kitty stuff and how fun was that! This is the inside of the card. I know I went a little crazy with the kitty theme but I was having so much fun. The sentiments on the inside my friend made for me, she works at a trophy store and these are the scraps they put in the garbage. She is such a sweetheart to do this for me. I found this pink ribbon and I loved it so I had to add it to the inside. Pink works? right? The kitties down on the ribbon are buttons and I cut off the backs. I can not forget my kitty brad I got them at the convention this summer and though they where so cute.
These are the copic markers used to color the image.
The close up of the image. I added glossy accents. Copic opaque white.
I guess I got a little chatty, sorry about that. Thanks for stopping by. Have a super week end. We are having such beautiful fall weather hope you are also. Get sometime outside and enjoy it.

The frame is a Spellbinder card creator Branching Out. I did add some glossy accents to the pumpkins eyes, mouth and nose.

The kitties are a punch from Creative Memories. I think the frame looks so good for this kind of theme.

I do not know if I ever shared these with you but thought it would be a good time with fall coming and school here. It might be fun to add some pencils to your cards. posted this card last year or so. But did not share how to make the pencils.
How to make Tiny Pencils to add to your cards for an embellishment
Notice the little pencils on the card. I did a tutorial on how to make them.
These are the copic colors I used to color the tooth picks. YR15, R05, black and E39, You need round tooth picks, cut in half, and a silver pen if you have one. I have a pencil here so you can see one.
I used a clipper to cut them in half.
Then colored the just the middle with YR15.
Carefully make the led by adding just a little black to the pointed tip of the tooth pick. Making sure you leave some tooth pick not colored between the led (black) and the YR15.
On the other end file it down a little so it is smooth and now add the R05 for the eraser end. If you want to add some silver ink between the R05 and YR15 as you can see the silver on the pencil. All done! Small embellishment to add to your card.
Sometimes you feel like a NUT, Sometime you don't!
Template and my card. If you click on the picture you can save as and copy the template.

Hello to all my wonderful followers, it is a steamy hot day in Southeastern Wisconsin and that is unreal for this time of year, it’s in the 90’s. So good time to make card. It’s time for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and the twisted for this week is to add layers to your card/project. Our wonderful sponsor for the month of September is Bugaboo. They have the most darling images and so many to choose from. My images is called Bugaboo Brat Bugs. She has all kinds of special going on all the time and a FREEBIE every Friday. If you sign up for the NEWSLETTER you will fine out all the specials.

Stop by and see all the designers cards they did a beautiful job. The Spellbinder used to cut out image is Lacy Square. I know it is hard to tell but I did add some Wind of Stella ink glitter, it sure is pretty when you look at the card. I used mostly clear a little green. On the corners put some orange ribbon from Hobby Lobby. Sponged the outer areas with Brilliance ink color sky blue.
The sentiment is from TLcreations. They have so many free sentiments. The paper used is from Heidi’s flower/strips décor flocked cardstock. This fancy font is a little hard to read it say “Life is like a Butterfly it goes where it please and pleases where it goes”.
Nothing fancy on the inside. Used a corner punch called flower decorations 3 D/5. Left the inside open for a sentiment or a written message.
These are the copic markers I used to color the image.
