Scribbles Design Challenge Freebie Friday

Hello and happy Friday!  Today I'm guest designing over at Scribbles Design for Freebie Friday.  I had a lot of fun creating this card using this great little lock and heart key image.  I can't resist adding a little bling here and there.  I copic colored the image, then glossy accented the heart and sprinkled on my favorite distress glitter.  You could use just about any "lovey" type sentiment and it would work perfectly with this image.  

Thanks for visiting, hop on over to Scribbles Design to see more great stuff!

Sentimental Sundays Challenge #247: Single Layer Card

Hi Everyone!  Happy Sunday to everyone, I hope your week was wonderful!  

Today I've created a single layer card for my DT assignment over at Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog.  There is an AWESOME prize this week, so I suggest you play along!  Click here to play >>>> 

Before I talk about the card, I need to make a wee confession.  I have a problematic copic marker that somehow made it back into the pack.  This is the second time it's thrown up while coloring with it and I ruined the original stamped balloon (the last thing I was coloring on this card of course :))  Anyhow, I don't think I have enough colorless blender OR time to fix it, so I ended up having to die cut a balloon (Stamps of Life) and pasting over the top.  So I suppose you could say that my entry is not a TRUE single layer, but if not for quick thinking, I'd have had to start ALL over again.  So lets pretend it's the balloon that came with this stamp set.  For sanity's sake ;)

Speaking of the stamp set...ohhhh, can you stand the absolute cuteness of this one?  It's by Wplus9 and the set is called, "Unforgettable".  You can purchase the matching dies, for when you aren't making a single layer card! I've heard it's on backorder now, but should be back in stock soon.  I purchased mine from Butterfly Reflections, Ink, check out Vanessa's store and when they're back in stock, she'll hook you up! Butterfly Reflections, Ink. - Click here to shop

And for the finishing touches, that awesome sentiment is from SimonSaysStamp.  It's called "Handwritten Borders" and those precious enamel dots are my Doodlebug!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and please follow along on my blog, I'd love to have you join my page!

MFT Sketch Challenge #216

I have for so long wanted this image by MFT and I finally bought it!  So even though it's way past christmas, I needed to get this "Happy Christmas" set inky!  I also used the Stitched Hills by MFT to create the background.  The top blue paper is from the Doodlebug "Frosty Friends" collection.  I went a little sequin crazy, but that's easy to do!  I'm not sure who makes the clear ones, but the tiny 4mm blue ones are by Pretty Pink Posh (love)

I enjoyed coloring this image so much, I think I'm going to have to make another card with her soon!  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll consider joining my blog!

Sentimental Sundays #246 Paper Nest Dolls - Valentines for the KIDS Challenge

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge!  I hope you will join in the fun over at Sentimental Sundays.

I've been away from blogland for a while.  My family and I moved to our new home last month and my craft room has been slooooow to get up and running.  It's ok though, I've got all my basic tools ready to go!

So this week, I colored up this super sweet digital image by Paper Nest Dolls, I wanted the image to be the main focal point because she's so darling.  I used the Femme Frames Dies by Mama Elephant and enamel heart by Chickaniddy.  The sentiment was from an older Our Craft Lounge set, but just seemed to work perfectly. 

I hope you enjoy this weeks entry, thanks for stopping by, I'd LOVE it if you'd follow along on my blog, and don't forget to visit us over at Sentimental Sundays for some fun this week!
