Magnolia Challenges

***Later added note - I am such a moron!!  I actually did use the Sketch Saturday #73 challenge for this but didn't remember until after I went to bed last night!!  So, now I will go post with Sketch Saturday because I did like this sketch! 

Today I managed to make this challenge a muilti-functional card.  It's for 2 challenges as well as my sister's (my twin) birthday.  She's banned from my blog until she receives it in the mail!  LOL!!  It feels like forever since I've done a Magnolia challenge and that's just not right!!  :O

Just Magnolia - Bright & Zingy
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Easel card (which by the way is so easy!!)

I colored with Copics and her dress is RV000, RV21 and RV23 (my mom wanted to know).  The charms & spacers are from the Hobby House (UK).  I embossed the white paper with my Cuttlebug folder and then added Stickles for some nice glitz.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch, misc ribbon, Hero Arts gems,  Doodlebug DP and the new cherry Quickutz.  I used sparkle paper for all 3 different colors in the cherry.  It's so sparklie IRL!!  I really enjoyed making this card but if felt like it took forever then I realized I was just tired and had no mojo.  Must be the weather!!

Challenges All O're The Place!!!

I am so excited to say this is my first time putting together 5, yes I say 5 challenges!!!  I have really enjoyed making Halloween cards over the past month or so and wish I had time to make more but with christmas around the corner I better get my butt in gear and start making those ones. 

Today's card includes the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Spook Fest
Charisma Cardz - Distressing of any kind (inked around the edges of most layers)
Basic Grey - Sketch (I turned mine to the left) and I used BG DP
Stamp Something - Bling - BLING!!!  (bling in the upper r/h & lower l/h corner & flower centers.  I also have blingy bats as I used sparkle paper!!)
Copic Creations - Coloring Black  (her hat)

And now for the inside - yes, I did the inside!!  OH MA GOODNESS!  I still can't get over the ladies who do the inside all the time!  I'm slow enough.  LOL!

Sketch Saturday #71

I enjoyed making this little gal into a card.  I used Prima flowers, EK success leaf punch, paper from Everlasting Beauty, Upsy Daisy Designs, nesties, Martha Stewart border punch, misc brads and misc ribbon. 

The butterfly is from Prima's new Go Green Concepts called Say It in Pearls.  Love them!!


Last weekend ... no, wait almost 2 weekends ago, I made this bday card for my girlfriend who only recieved it yesterday!  SORRY!  I also used it for a contest on Splitcoast and the sketch was beautiful.  I didn't win but that's ok!!  I also used it for a Magnolia challenge that asked us to make our own flowers.  Ummm - ok sorry but I like storebought.  BROL!!  hee hee!!
