SC289 - Congrats!

Hi All,

Tonight I'm bringing you the card I created for SC289 over at SCS. I actually struggled with this sketch ...ME? yes me, but I was determined and I'm happy with the final result. The struggle was my first attempt I went off memory and apparently that is not good thing to do HA. I re-tried (looking at the sketch while I was working this time) and it worked out fine. I decided to ink up my Cosmobella. I love coloring in Bellas, but today I went with my Copics. I currently only own about 12 Copic markers, but by the end of month My Birthday Fairy will be giving me a large set. *COUGH - COUGH* hint to my Birthday Fairy lol.

I used small mirrors for the top of the card. I purchased these from Hobby Lobby :) I also used Glitter on my Background DP to step things up for the Party. I didn't glitter all the circles, just a selected few. You can see them better in the closeup below.

Here is the original Sketch I followed from SCS.

The great thing about these sketch is that there is never a deadline, and you can submit yours at any time. I hope to have time in the future to go back over some older sketches that I missed.

Thank you for visiting!!!

SC288 - Sittin here thinking about you

Hi everyone :)

I recently placed an order with All That Scraps, and went a lil' overboard (hehehe) ordering stamps during the big sale they just recently had. I have always loved C.C. Design Stamps - the Pixies and Sugarplums. Well, I took the big dive and ordered a ton of them lol. Today I decided I had to ink up Swiss Lady Bug Nora. Isn't she just the cutest thing!!

I used sketch SC288 from SCS

I used both Copics (for the skin) and my Prismacolor Pencils for the coloring. I also used tons of stickles on this project (I couldn't help myself) :) The sentiment stamp is from AmyR's Underwater Sentiments, I love this set so much and so glad I got it while it was on sale.

I even stickled the Prima flowers lol and added a chipboard flower to the center (that I colored with my Copics)

Thank you for stoppin' in and visiting!

Sketchy Saturday and a lil Soccer

Hi Everyone,

My Latest card is for the Club Anya's Sketchy Saturday. I'm on a roll with the Anya stamps :) Actually I have family visiting starting tomorrow, and I won't be free again to make a card til next week :( PURE SADNESS, so I rushed this last one in while I still had the time.

Isn't she just the cutest of all cute!? This is actually an Anya Digital stamp, and I shrank her a lil cuz I wanted it to look like she was standing on one of the soccer balls. I love how versatile the Digi's are. Here is the Sketch I followed created by Pam over at Club Anya. As soon as I seen it, the Soccer balls just popped in my head lol.

Hope you guys like it and Thanks so much for stopping by.

Christmas in July ! and first time ever using a Sewing Machine

Hi everyone!

The first part of my post is a BIG BIG thank you to KelliJo over at SCS. I currently collect Anya stamps from the Greeting Farm, and the only stamp I did not have is the Elf Anya. I wasn't stamping when it first came out, and I was in NY caring for a very sick Mom who was recovering from surgery when it was re-released for Christmas of 2009. I missed it both times, and I was sure I would never see this beauty in my stamp collection ever. Out of pure desperation (haha) I posted on SCS, and KelliJo sent me the stamp and asked for nothing in return. How amazing is that!!!! It seriously brought tears to my eyes. The kindness involved in an act like this is beyond words. So I had to ink it up right away. With it being the 4th I was too busy with family - so I have been wanting so badly to use it, and I finally did today - YAY for me :)

Today the card I created for Farm Fresh Friday at the Greeting Farms :) The challenge this week is to SEW..akkkk. For those of you that know my Cards, also know that I do not Sew - not even a little bit lol. I understand the challenge says you can faux sew, but it got me thinking. I purchased a sewing machine about a year ago, but I haven't ever used it. I also have NEVER used a sewing machine in my life before. Well this challenge got me pretty determined to try and so after several hours of wrestling with my new machine lol - I did!!!

Here is my first sewing card, and the first time I have ever used a sewing machine in my life...

I think it came out incredible for my first time ever sewing, and I have been walking around beaming about it all day LOL!!!

Hope ou guess enjoyed this one :) Thank you so much for visiting and sharing in my very proud moment!

I am loving the Wild Card Wednesday Challenges over at Club Anya. I did this weeks challenge that was created by Jess over at the Club :)

And Kelly made a card as well - A FIRST CARD ever using the same sketch of course.

How awesome is this for a first card. I couldn't believe how great it came out and I had pretty much no say in any of it lol.

Hope you guys enjoyed -Thanks so much for visiting !
