CLP #51

And we're back for another sketch from CLP Challenge Blog!  Ok Chelsea really challenged me on this one.  Phew!!  I had a hard time with the piece on the right hand side so I added the black leaves under my bouquet.  I've seen a few Halloween cards lately and that got me itchin' to make one myself.  I inked up this Kraftin' Kimmie stamp "Batty Princess", which hasn't seen ink ever and I bought it last year.  Oooops!! 

I just want to point out those wonderful hand made Glow Skullz embellies.  You can check them out here and many more amazing perfect creations for your Halloween cards.  Love the pumpkins!!  Thanks Glo!!

Sorry for the quick post.  Off to bed!!  Have a great long weekend everybody.  Unless you don't have one then I'm so sorry for you but have a great weekend anyway.  LOL!

OH AND PLEASE, if you get a chance stop by and see the gorgeous creations by my fellow teamies at CLP.  They are some talented!!

Gifts for you

Another cute LOTV image!!! I am on a mission to make sure that every stamp I order from LOTV, actually gets used.  Good thing I don't apply that mission to all my images.  ha ha ha!!  So when I received the 3 that I ordered, I colored them all up immediately and now this is card #2. 

I also noticed how making a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card was far easier then my normal 6 x 6 as this image is a bit smaller then some of the others I use.   Lots of little extra's (cuz that's different how? - LMBO) and some very pretty brown and pink paper that my sister sent me.  Thanks buddie!!  

I've made the card to enter into the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - Spots or stripes, well I couldn't decide so how about both?  LOL

Hanna and Friends - this sketch

Well that's it for now!  Off to work on a Halloween card.  I KNOW!!  I can't believe it's already coming around.  Jeesh!  Enjoy your weekend all!

Fall Maggie

I just LOVE this image!  Isn't she cute?  We had some really amazing summer weather but I think I am looking forward to fall now.  I haven't had too much just yet tho and I am NOT complaining since it seems like winter lasts 6 months nowadays.  LOL!

"Autumn Tilda with Broom" is what this Tilda is called and you can find her at Magnolia-licious where you can also find the rest of the new "Turning Leaves" collection.  Funny thing!!  After I colored her all up I have seen 2 more images colored with the same color combo!  Ahhhh great minds think alike! 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia challenge blog - Favorite image and for now this is mine.  It seems like my favorite changes with every new collection.  LOL!

Have a great week my friends!

LOTV - Message for You

Boy that LOTV company is kicking out some amazing images over the last few months.  I picked up this little cutie a short bit ago, along with a few more I hope to share soon.

Oh WAIT, then I ordered 5 more xmas ones only to find out there is ANOTHER release coming out.  DOH!!  Just when my money thought it was safe!!  BWAAAHHHH HA HA HA HA!  Oh who am I kidding.?!!  Doesn't this happen every fall/winter?  YES!  Love it!

The only thing I find with these images is they are a little smaller and I think I might have a tendency to have my embellishments overpower my poor little image.  But at least I give your eyes lots to look at.  LOL!!   I'll try a smaller card next time and see if that helps me out.  

I'm going to enter this card in 2 challenges:

Simon Says -Animal Antics
Mad for Markers - Anything Goes

So I'm coming up with some very interesting news soon.  Summer is coming to an end and so is my holiday and time to be creating again!!  I will share my secret soon!

Stamps:  LOTV "A Little Message" and you get the little sentiment too.
Paper:  Echo Park "For the Record - Table Cloth" paper

Some of you might find this card familiar and it's because it was in the DTC magazine but I had never got a chance to share it with you until now.  We had to wait until the issue had been out for awhile but by then I had forgotten.  LOL!!
