Pink isn't just a color!

Pink isnt just a color This one is for Glitterbabe (Stef's ) Challenge at Squigglefly. She is having a color challenge and these are the colors.color15orangepinkturq

The image I used is from Squigglefly and it is called "Rahrah Rhonda Cheerleader". I sewed around the edges of my layer cards as you can see I'm not a very good at sewing. I will keep trying and maybe I will get a little better. The saying I used is from "The Angel Company". I added a little ribbon. Few flowers, and bubble dots (that is what I will call then).

I want to Play!

Come play with me.

This is an image from Meljen Designs. She has so many wonderful images. I needed to created a card for a stamping club I belong to, so this is it. When I copied it I flipped the image so I would has him going both ways so when I did the card I did not like him the other way I flipped him with the card going this way so I did the another card just a little different.Play.

I did them pretty much the same, just a little different. I colored them with my copic markers. Added a flower I made and a couple embellishment and I was done.



I thought I should make a card for fun challenges also. I pretty much did as I did my tutorial. I do hope everyone learned something from the tutorial or I was able to help some to learn how to do this. If you did not try it, really it is not that hard and the cards turn out so beautiful. My time to Craft is having a challenge for a manly card and these make beautiful men cards.

I think I will just sit back and relax.

I reaaly was not sure how I was going to do this little guy but he is so cute and I really wanted to give him a try. So at first I started to just color him and I have been making my own I guess you would call it Styrofoam Fluff in all kinds of colors and I added glitter to all the colors I made. I got thinking how about trying the back I made, I bet it would work great for the Panda so I used my C07 copic and colored most places I thought would be dark and then added the black Fluff. I used Glossy Accents to hold it on and it worked good. I also have some real Flower Soft and it like a mix of wild flowers and I used that for the ground. I even put wiggle eyes on the Panda. The images I used is from Maljen. She is has a new site on PCP and I love her images if you would like to see more of her images just click here. I'm sure you would be glad you did. The image I used is called "Happy Panda". The Happy Birthday stamp is from The Angel Company. I added some black ribbon and some black dots. I hope you had a wonderful week end. Cute Card Thursday is having a chellange and it for CELEBRATIONS and Kaboodle doodles is having a HAPPY BIRTHDAY challenge.

Off I go...I'm going to a Birthday!

I am going to a birthday. This is one of Sassy Cheryl images. She has so many wonderful images to choose from. The one I have here is called "Patsy Birthday". This week is a sketch challenge. Sometimes I have a hard time sticking to the sketch because I think of this and that, I tried real hard this time.

If you would like to check out Sassy Cheryl's Challenges you can click here and if you would like to check out all her wonderful images you can click here.

My card is 6 1/2 by 5 and in next layer is 6 1/4 by 4 3/4 and in the back I put ribbon. My under layer is 2 3/4 by 5 and the next layer is 4 3/4 by 2 1/2 and my top layer is 3 3/4 by 3 and that worked for the card sketch. I made the flowers and put rime stone on them, used them for where they showed the stars. I colored Patsy with copic markers. For the field of flowers she is walking in the is Flower Soft. At the top I really wanted to add something so I put some butterflies. I hope you enjoy my card.

After I was reading and found out that Charisma Cards had a challenge going and it had to have a butterfly, also flutterby had a challenge, your card had to have a butterfly, fairies or angels. Cup Cake Challenges your card had to have flowers. So that was a added plus.

Prayer Cards

I made these Prayer cards for my Mother-in-law. These are images from The Stamping Boutique. I merged the praying hands together with the recipes cards. I was surprise it worked and I was really glad it did because I had promised my mother-in-law I would make her some prayer cards. She visits a lot of sick people and leaves notes of encouragement with them. What I did with the other image is I had a Stampendous stamp for writing in scrapbooks (I'm not a Scrapbook person) so I used the stamp and masked around the image, to give her some place to write her messages. I tried to add just a touch of color (copics). I mailed then to her on Monday so I hope she likes then. I did not know what one I like the best so I thought I would let her choose and I can make her more for her friends.

Comes in all kinds of colors.....

I did it, I did it! This time I did not wait to upload my card. It might take me a couple of times to learn, but I did it. Just for you Stef... This is for Stef Challenge at Squigglely. It started Feb 25th and ends Mar. 11th, so there is still time if you would like to join us. The colors are RED, PINK AND GREEN. I named my card They come in all colors. I colored everything with copic markers. I layered my card stock. Punched the edges out with one of Martha Steward border punches. I tried one Daisyd's it is like a tape runner for the edges and it looks likes like a zig zag stitch, personal I'm not to sure on that yet. I also tried a rub on by Bling it on made by Basic Grey, that is the two flowers with the rime stones. Cost was not a lot. I thought it turned out really nice. Thanks for stopping by.

Aiden My Engineer...

Happy Monday and March to everyone! I hope everyone had a great week end and are ready to take on the coming week. I had wonderful week end. We took Aiden and Emma Ice Skating for the first time. Of course I took all kind of pictures. Grandma watched. They loved every minute. Now they have what is called a bucket you take with you. This is there first time on skates. They did not have buckets when I was little. I loved to ice skate, we lived right next to the ice rink when I was growning up. My son and my daughter-in-law really did a wonderful job.
The challenge for The Cards for Men this time is Paper Piecing. The sponsor this month is The Stamping Boutique. If you would like to see any of there images click here and check them out. You need to go to Card For Men and sign up with Mr Linky and you can do that by clicking here. Once you do that your card is do March 14.

Also ABC Challenges is having a challenge for Paper Piecing. If you would like to check what is going on over there click here.
I used a scrapbook paper I found that looked like an out door scene and lined up my image "train" to print where I wanted it to print. I printed it out several times on different colors of paper and cut the pieces of the track out and the train and glued them over the printed areas. I did the same with the "engineer". I did go over the colored paper with some of my copic markers to give the colors a little shading. I used Gelly Roll Pens and At You Spica Pens to give a little sparkle. I also sprayed some glitter spray from Flora Craft. The punched out the bottom border with Martha Steward train punch. Used a RR Sign, butterfly sticker and the 3D train on the top was a sticker also. I add to really small buttons to Aiden pants. The Raccoon is a button.
I hope you enjoy my card. Have a wonderful week.
