A Sassy Studio Fairy Tale

Good evening, hope all is well with you. Tonight I have a card made for the Sassy Studio Designs challenge. The challenge was to make a fairy tale card using any image from them. I chose to use the free image that she gave us. Isn't it beautiful?! I love this gorgeous mask. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. The CS is Bazzill Bling, and the DP is DCWV Once Upon A Time Stack. The ribbon is from the Dollar Store, and I added some pearls to the bottom. I colored the image with prisma pencils and baby oil, and added some stickles. The card also qualifies for Simon Says Challenge, which is distressing, and the Dare You To Digi Stamp Challenge. Woo Hoo!!! Four challenges in one card-how cool is that! So if you haven't visited any of these fun blogs, please do. Sassy Studio Designs is having a new release tomorrow, which is their Fairy Tale Collection. I can't wait! Have a wonderful evening!

It's Squigglefly Day!

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is Squigglefly challenge day, and Rhonda has given us a sketch to play with. I have to say that sketches are my favorite. I used the image called "Beach Baby", and it can be found here. I absolutely love this image, it's one of my all time favorites. I finally tried coloring with my prisma pencils and baby oil. I have to tell you that I LOVE this coloring technique. I did try it once before but got frustrated and haven't tried it since. So now back to the card! All CS is bazzill, and dp is DCWV. I used the square scallop nestie to cut out the top squares. I'm not sure where the clear buttons are from, I got them in a secret sister thing. And it's finished off with blue fibers. So thanks for looking, have a great day, and don't forget to go to the Squigglefly blog to play along for a chance to win a prize!!

TCC Feature Friday 4

Good morning, hope all is well with you. First I must apologize for not having this up sooner, and for not posting anything all week. My back has been out, and it was everything I could do to get this project done. And I just couldn't sit here anymore. But I'm back and with my project. So, today is the 4th week of Feature Friday for TCC. It's of course also the fourth week for the Work it Wednesday over on TCC's blog. This week for WIW, Tesa gave us a tutorial on stitching. So, I figured I could do this, doesn't look that hard right!? Yeah, right!! As you can see mine looks nothing like hers, and of course it's not straight even though I used a ruler, but oh well I did try! I used the Flower Ziggy image, and made a notebook. I colored my image with copics, and tried something else new-outlining the image to make it look like it's shadowed. I like it, what do you think. I most definitely like it better than the stitching(lol). The CS is Bazzill, and the DP is MM. The ribbon is from Michael's. And the flowers are primas with jewels added in the middle. Oh, I did add stickles to her wings. So, now for the business. We've started having a guest DT on Friday's and this week is Verda, if you go to this blog you will be able to meet her and see her gorgeous card that she made. Of course please visit the other DT's blogs to see their fab creations this week. Also don't forget that if you participate in the WIW challenges, leave us a link on the blog and you could win a prize and be our next guest DT. If you upload to SCS please use TCCWIW4 in your upload so that we can find it. You have until Thursday the 28th at 12 pm EST to be eligible for the prize. If you don't have a blog you can email your submissions to So have fun, I can't wait to see what you create.

The Character Cafe Release Day and a Blog Hop

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is the 2nd Blog Hop for TCC. So if you came here from TCC's DT page, then your are on the right track. Now from here you will go to Mary's blog. From there she will have a link to where you go next. Remember you have to go on the hop in order to collect the code. Everyone will have 1 piece of the code and you have to have them in order. The code will be good for 30% off. And don't forget that one person along the way will have a "freebie". Don't forget to leave a comment for all the wonderful work along the way. Now, onto my card. I'm using the new release called "Ty the Lemonade Guy". Isn't he such a boy! I love his little frog in the jar, totally reminds me of my son, Jesse. He' s always bringing something home to keep in a jar. I gotta tell you that this card was a lot of work for me. I don't usually do boy cards, and now I know why. I think I just need to go buy some boy paper, it would probably help alot! I'm sure my husband will love that-lol! Anyway, I colored him with my copics, and added some ink around the edges. The CS is bazzill, and DP is DCWV. I added the buttons which totally made the card, in my opinion.

Now, my piece of the code is the number "8", and don't forget you have to have them in order for them to work. There will be drawings for prizes also, but you do have to leave a comment on every blog along the way, and at the TCC blog as the last stop. So have fun, and get some great new images!

Cupcake Craft Challenge and Mojo Sketch

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you. I'm having a very relaxing day, ALL of my kids are gone to their cousins house to play all day!!! WOO HOO!!! I'm so lovin this! So, this card is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge and the Mojo Monday Challenge. I just received my first Magnolia stamp from a ss swap on SCS. I cannot tell you how excited I was to get this. At first I didn't like these stamps because of the whole no mouth thing. But they keep growing on me, and I finally decided I wanted one. Although, I did not ask for a stamp, just some images. But, my wonderful ss sent me a stamp-yay me!! I can't tell you the specific name, because I can't find one on the pkg. The red CS is bazzill, and the DP is DCWV fun in the sun glitter stack. I colored her with prisma pencils and blender pencil. I used a MS butterfly punch, with a flower on the bottom. The ribbon is from the dollar tree. I used scallop scissors for the edges. The challenge for the cupcake craft blog is blossoms and butterflies. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

The ribbon is from my stash and either from Michael's or Wal-mart. I used prima's in the corner and the jewels are from Michael's.

Squigglefly Challenge #10

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is the 10th challenge over on the squigglefly blog!!! Rhonda was the hostess with the mostess this week and gave us the challenge of using 1oval, 1square, ribbon, and glitter. So much better!!!! For this weeks' challenge I used the image called "flowermice". Isn't it the sweetest! I colored with my copics, and cut around the image-there was too much white space for me. I used my nestabilites to cut the rectangle, and the ovals. CS is bazzill bling, and the green dp is DCWV, and the polka dot is MM. I cut the corners with my circle punch, and the ribbon is from Michael's. I added some stickles and voila' it's done! If you haven't been over to squigglefly lately, run, don't walk!

Squigglefly Challenge #9

Good evening, hope all is well with you. This post is for the Squigglefly Challenge #9. Kim was in charge of the challenge this week, and let me tell you it is a doozy!!! She gave us the challenge of making a one layer card with only one embellishment(holy cow)! I don't know if I've ever made a one layer card, so this was definitely a challenge for me. I decided to use a sentiment which did make it a little bit easier. The sentiment is of course from Squigglefly, and called "bee happy". I just inserted it into microsoft office and from there could re size it. I colored with my copics and added some polka dots to the word "happy" with my gel pen. I added stickles to the wings and along the trail of the bee. I finished it off with some polka dot ribbon with knots on each end. The ribbon is from Michael's. So if you really like challenges I suggest you try this one. Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful evening!

The Character Cafe' Feature Friday Week 3

Good morning, hope all is well with you. WOW! I just realized that I haven't posted anything for a whole week. We got so busy with the holiday and family that it just got away from me. But today I have a card for you from The Character Cafe'. This image is called FairyBelle, isn't she adorable!!! The Cs is Bazzill bling line, and the dp is all from my stash(sorry)! I colored this little fairy with my copics, and addled a little stickles for accents! When you buy this image it comes in pdf format also, and that one has the extra wings on it that are slightly larger than the image. I used those behind the image and bent the actual wings up a bit. Hope that made sense, it's very late, and I'm tired(haha)! I popped her up on dimensional pop dots to make her look like she's floating through the air! I added some dew drops and pretty ribbon and voila', there she is! Don't forget that The Character Cafe' has Work It Wednesday, which is a tutorial done by the DT and also a challenge to go along with it. There are prizes, and of course it's lots of fun! Also make sure you check out the other DT members blogs for their projects for today!

TCC Feature Friday Week 2

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is the 2nd week of Feature Friday at The Character Cafe. I have used the Princess Ally image. She is the cutest! When I decided to use her, I immediately thought of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. So, this is my interpretation of it. All CS is Bazzill, and the CS is DCWV Fairy tale stack. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday. The flowers are from my LSS, and the ribbon is from Michael's. The sentiment is computer generated and cut out and matted with my nesties. I'm not sure where the little jewels are from, I found them in all of my stuff. I colored her with copics, and added the gold glitter with a spica pen. Make sure you check out the other DT's projects for today. And don't forget about the Work it Wednesday feature on the TCC blog. Thanks for stopping by today!

Squigglefly Blog Hop Day 2

Good morning, and welcome to the Squigglefly Blog Hop Day 2. If you've arrived her from Holly's blog then your on the right track. If you didn't then you need to go to Amanda's blog to start the hop. So, business first! If you haven't checked out Squigglefly lately, you need to get over there. They've released lots of new images. And they've started two new things. First, for the month of July they will donate 50% of sales out of the "animals" category to the ASPCA. Second, starting very soon they will be doing a rewards program. For every 15 dollars that you spend, you get to choose a free image. It can be any image you want, no restrictions! How cool is that? And of course since this is a blog hop, their are prizes. Squigglefly will give 3 images to one person that leaves a comment on all of the blogs today. (they did the same thing yesterday).

Ok, now that all of that is said, onto the card! Today's card uses the image "A surprise from Sara". I immediately fell in love with this image for 3 reasons. First she has my name, even spelled the same way. Second, she looks just like strawberry shortcake-to me. Third, she reminds me of my youngest daughter, Sabrina. I colored her with prisma pencils and blended with the prisma blender. I added some diamond glaze to the sun and clouds. The CS is Bazzill, and all dp is DCWV stack 5. The ribbon and bling is from Michael's. I did add a little bit of stickles here and there. I used the sketch from card patterns. So, hope you like it and thanks for hopping along with us. Now, you need to go to Shelly's blog for more fun!!!
