Speedy Fox and Friends - Tissue Paper Challenge

Here is the last Speedy Fox Challenge for 2012.    We have been challenged to use tissue paper.   My first thought was to do this shopping bag with tissue paper and then I realized how perfect it would be to pair it up with the "You've Got Style" stamp set, that was just released last week over at Mark's Finest Paper.      Once I got my bag done, I decided the bag would look cute with a tissue paper flower.
This is the first one I have ever made and it was pretty fun.  I like how it fluffs up so easily.   Please come over to our blog and play along with us this week.  Someone always wins a nice stamp set.  You do not have to use Mark's Finest Paper stamps, but your name will be entered in the drawing twice if you do.

I am wishing you all a very Happy New Year.  What is the tradition in your area for cooking on  New Years day for prosperity?   Ours is to cook beans so our menu usually consists of  corned beef, beans, fried potatoe's and cabbage.

Santa Snow Globe

Here is the last Christmas card for 2012.   I had this snow globe cut out and ready to make a card with it, but somehow did not get around to it until now.  I started out wanting a blue sky with dotted white vellum.  The Santa did not show through it very well so I changed it to this one and I I like it much
better.   The Santa is a Mark's Finest Paper stamp,  the template is from Cutting Cafe, I used liquid appliqué,  paper studio paper and colored with copics.

Thanks for coming by today.   I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Speedy Fox and Friends - Clouds and Sun

Yee Haw,  here we are again  and it is time for the Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.  Today we are making projects with sun and clouds.  I chose to use the Mark's Finest Paper stamp set, "Hey Cowboy".  I used a template to sponge my clouds.   I wanted to make the sun to have rays coming down from it so I used a piece of paper to sponge the edge and kept moving it around the sun to create that look.  I know this is a busy time for everyone, but I do hope you will join us for our blog challenge.

Card for my Veterinarian -Squigglefly Challenge

Holley's Hobbist's are giving the challenge over at Squigglefly today.   The theme "Tell Me Something"means you can make a card of your choice as long as you put a sentiment on it.   I chose to use this cute "Christmas Beagle" by Marla Shega.     I love this adorable pup.   I made this card to send to my veterinarian.     I thought the animal print was a perfect choice to pair up with this image.      Holley and her team would be happy to see you link your card up to this challenge.   Okay, I am off
to link up my card.   What are you waiting on, come on over and join the fun.

Penny Black - Elf Mim

Here is a card I made today with a Penny Black stamp "Elf Mim".    I received this stamp for my birthday from a friend.   I finally got to ink her up and I really like the way she turned out.    I put glitter on her hat and  I bet I am wearing some on my face, too.   ~smile~

I hope you are getting all your preparations done for the upcoming Christmas holiday.

Squigglefly -red and green

Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals over at the Squigglefly Blog are giving the challenge this week.  They have challenged everyone to make a red and green card.   It does not have to be Christmas although when I think of the red and green color combo that is what pops in my mind.  I used the  new  Squigglefly image called "Winter Clothes" by Fawn Palmer.   I hope that you will come on over to the Squigglefly Blog and join us for our challenge.   You do not have to use a Squigglefly image and you just might win a free Squigglefly image if you link your card up to Mr. Linky.

Amaryllis Definition

I made this card for the Queen for the day challenge over at Splitcoast. Pam MacKay is the queen.  I used a new stamp set that just came out this week, called Amaryllis Definition, by Mark's Finest paper, colored with copics and the paper is color bok Flea Market.  Seems like I have been on a blue kick with my cards, but today I am back to making the pink ones.  I definitely like the pink and brown color combo.

Thanks, for coming by to check it out and for the nice comments.

Sand Dollar Sketch Challenge

Here is a card I made for the Splitcoast sketch challenge today.  I have an over abundant amount of blue scraps and I wanted to do the center of the sand dollar in blue so I was in luck when it came to a mix of dp's to go with it.    The papers are all from Paper Studio.  The sand dollar is one of Mark's Finest Papers stamps.  The sentiment is also a Mark's stamp from the set " ATrip to Lancaster".
I colored the image with copies B91, 000, E30, 00, 000.

Winter Wonderland-SFC4812

The challenge over at Squigglefly is given by Holley Hobbists today and they are doing a winter wonderland theme.  I chose to use this pre-colored Inger Harding image.   I love the pre-colored images.  It is so easy to make a card when time is limited.  My DH is still on the mend from his surgery so I haven't had a lot of time to dedicate to card making so this was a perfect image for me to work with.   I added some stickles on the snow and that was all I did to the image.  Easy peasy.  I thought this
October Afternoon paper was perfect to use with my image.  Due to limited time, I used this card for the TSC challenge, too.

Have a great day and I will see you again soon.
