Happy Friday! So glad for the weekend. It’s a long weekend here in Canada but since I’m working and DH is on call, it’s not really a celebration for us.
It does mean that we are celebrating a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week. Our challenge for you~ Inspired by a Song~. This is one of my favorite challenges…..I chose a song that is also one of my favorite movies as well PRETTY IN PINK
I’m such a sucker for 80′s flicks!
Here is the card that I created for the challenge this week.
DP-stash (no idea who it is by as I’ve been trying to use up stray pieces)
Image: our wonderful sponsor Bugaboo!
Ink & Stickles: Tim Holtz (both are spun sugar)
Ribbon: from my stash
Eyelets: from my stash

Morning all. Survived another Monday and I’m one day closer to Cuba..woohoo.
Well we are back to work at the Use it Tuesday blog and we have a new challenge for you. We want you to sparkle and shine. Show us your projects with sparkle..so it could be bling, gems, pearls, stickles, glitter, anything that stands shiny!
Here’s my project for you today. It’s a wedding card with a matching envelope. I went to town with my smooch spritz on this one. The Mr. & Mrs. is cut with my Sweethearts cricut cartridge (I believe) and the pearls are from my stash. I actually cut it in half because I have a love/mostly hate relationship with these big blingy things..they never work for me.
I hope you like it and stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT have for you this week.

Hey everyone! Here is my card for this week’s inspiration post at Digital Delights. Meet Eddie the Elf!
He is such a cute little Christmas image that you can find in the store here and comes in both colored and b&w.
This is my Christmas card for you this week.
The DP is some left over Echo Park and Basic Grey that I had used for some other projects. I colored him with my copics and then added some stickles for some shiny fun. The swirly diecut is from sizzix and the bling and brads are from my stash. I colored the die cut with Eddie using some chalk. The sentiment is one from the store called Circular Merry Christmas I hope you like him and please stop by the blog to see the rest of the great inspiration for you this week.

ABC Christmas challenge: U is for up to you aka anything goes Christmas
Just Keep on Creating: anything goes
So last week I had posted a layout I did for a kit of the month challenge on CanadianScrapSwapChat. That was part one. Part two was to create another project using the same kit..it could be card, altered project, tag etc. I really like the die cuts in this pack so I made a cute little baby tag with it.
It’s a bit fuzzy so I hope you’ll forgive that. I basically just used up some of the scraps and then added the diecuts and popped them up. Nothing fancy here. Just a little ribbon to match. Pretty clean and simple I think. I hope you like it. I have a friend who’s newly pregnant and so I can’t wait to put this on her present for her shower! I hope she likes it too!

Oh I love her stuff. I just used some orange cardstock I had and stamped it with the stars of my Stampin Up basic backgrounds stamp. The image was colored with copics and then chalked. It was then put on a border cut from my spell binders and the die cut stars were from a swap I did on Club CK. The stamped sentiment is from my Stampendous sentiments set. I hope you enjoy this and look forward to seeing what you come up with on our challenge this week.

I did this card as part of a card tag on the Scrapshotz forum and wanted to share it. I was quite pleased with how it turned out.
I used some scrap DP that I still have in my stash (I really need to clean it out at one point and just get rid of it..LOL)I added some ribbon from my stash as well as the flowers. I went over the flowers with some walnut stain distress stickles for a vintagy look. The sentiment was from a set that I bought and I wish I remember who made it but I took it out of the packaging and just put it all into my big Christmas box…I distressed all the edges and gave it a once over with some Walnut Stain distress ink. A couple of shiny brads and we are done. I hope you like it.
