Another Card!

There is a lot of birthdays this month and next, so I have had a lot of cards to make. This is one I made for my niece's 8th birthday! It's a Saturated Canary digi stamp and I colored her with Copics and Bic mark-its, since I only have six Copics (all skin tones).
After I took the picture, I added my niece's name to the dotted paper on the base and Glossy accented it to make it pop! I am really happy with it! I have to admit though that I have practiced a bit more with the copics and can do better hair! I'll have to make another card soon with the other Saturated Canary digi I have colored, so I can back that statement up!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Poodles Parlour (anything goes)
The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge (Bright and Cheerful)
Color Me Creative (Anything with a girly twist)

I'm a Winner!!

I was the lucky winner of the #103 Kenny K's Challenge!! I get to choose 5 awesome digis and also some Copic markers from Being Scappy! Now I just have to figure out how to add this winner badge to my sidebar! It seems pretty straight forward, but I can't figure it out! Anyone out there who can help this newbie out??
I've tried adding it as a picture url, but it doesn't like it :(

Well, I guess I'm gonna have to keep joinng Kenny K's Challenges, since I will have some cool new digis and new copics to color them with!! Whoohoo! Until later!! 'Night!

One Card Tres Risque!

I just discovered Kenny K didi stamps! OMG! They are awesome. So I used the last of my craft allowance for the month and bought me an image! And this is what I came up with! It goes along with Kenny K's challenge of "Strawberries and Cream". I also used black cardstock for the Creative Card Crew Challenge!

I think I am gonna like this Challenge thing. It really gets me motivated to make stuff!

I really gotta figure out how to take a decent pic. Although they are done with my phone, so I can't complain too much!

Any who! How awesome is that image! Very naughty! On the easel card, it reads "I've got the Strawberries if you can bring the Cream" My husband loved it; my sister thought it was a little much. But, it goes along with the strawberries, right?

I would like to link this card up with the following challenges: (black cardstock) (strawberries and cream) (anything goes with a girly twist)
Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
Dream Valley (summer) (I have strawberries!)
Papertake Weekly (make your own) ( I made my own sentiment!)

Oh, and its my Birthday! Happy Birthday to me!!

It's been awhile...

Wow! I can't believe how time flies. I've done lots of crafty stuff but haven't taken the time to blog it. I figure I better just do it, so I can get the hang of it. That way it won't take two hours for a post!

So I am now into scrapbooking and card making and everything else paper! I am making a pledge to myself to blog several times a month, preferably twice a week. We shall see!! So the first post back will be some cards!

This one I made for my mother in laws B-day next month. We went to lunch one day at Mimi's and I pocketed some doilies from my soup dish and hers! So, on her card is one of them! That's my circle and my new item. I really like the look of the doily and I have several more where that one came from ;) I added some Wild Orchid Craft flowers and butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch and dotted them with some Liquid Pearls!
I would like to link this card up to the following challenges (if I can figure it out): (something new- doily) (Happy Birthday) (anything goes)  (anything goes)
Card Makin Mamas (1,2,3)

Well that"s it for this post! Bye!
