Weight Watchers & Wine

Happy Wednesday all!  It’s challenge day at Penny’s and to go with our anything goes theme, we have a couple of great sponsors again this week!

Our first sponsor is Oddball Art, who will be providing 3 images from their store for the winner this week!

Our second sponsor is Sparkle & Sprinkle who is also providing 3 images of the winners choice!

Sparkle N Sprinkle

My card today is using one from Sparkle & Sprinkle! It’s called Wine Friends.  It actually comes with 2 sentiments but this is the one that caught my eye when I saw it!

I did just some basic watercoloring for the image this week.  I used this week’s  sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The DP is just from my stash.  The sequins are from Stampin Up and I broke out my new Nuovo Dots in black for just a bit of an extra touch.

I cut the image/sentiment out using my CC designs die and my big shot.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and see the fabulous creations by the DT using images from both sponsors!  Jump in and play with our anything goes challenge! Can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy Mother’s Day

Wow! Friday already!  That means we have a new challenge for you at Brown Sugar! 

Our sponsor this week is Morgan’s Artwork who will be giving the winner 3 digi images of their choice!

What is this week’s theme you ask?? Why MOTHER’S DAY!  An easy challenge and I bet many of you are already working on projects for mom!

Using an image called Cameo 8 for my card this week. (sorry I don’t have a watermarked image for you on this one!)

I tried to give it a bit of a vintage feel…I used water color pencils and some water color paper for the image. I then went over the edges with some Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink .  The DP is just from my stash and I distressed it a little bit as well.  To frame the image I just used a die cut that I received in a swap and some little flowers that I have had forever in my stash.  A few little pearls around and we are done.  The sentiment with the little hearts is from Hero Arts – Celebrate Everyday set.  I hope you like it, and please stop by the blog this week and let us know what you are creating!

Life is Better With Friends

Hello all!  It’s the beginning of a new challenge week over at Penny’s!  Our anything goes challenges is up for you to play along and we have 2 wonderful sponsors this week!

Paper Creator is again sponsoring us this week, and we are also very happy to have All Dressed Up as well!

My card for this week is using this  image from Paper Creator called How about a Hug!  I just thought that the image was really adorable and it could, again, be a really versatile image.  I love that they are pre-colored!

I challenged myself this week to just use the things that were already on my desk!

so I paired it wish some textured cardstock that have these great swiss dots on them.  I also used the Spring  6×6 pack from Echo Park and some cute little Doodlebug sprinkles.  I added the sentiment just from some fonts that I already had in my computer.  I didn’t want to make this too embellished as I am sending it in the mail to a friend!

I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the blog so that you can see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with to inspire you this week!

I chose this really cute button flower bouquet because I thought it would be a fabulous versatile image…

I used mine for Mother’s Day, but you could use it for a Just Because card, sympathy, a friend..pretty much anything…

I used some Stampin Up paper that I had on my desk from another project.  I wanted to use it up and it was perfect for some simple layers.  The sentiment is from the Greatest Greetings stamp set also from SU.  I added a touch of bling from my stash and a little bit of glossy accents to make those cute buttons stand out more.  I die cut the images using a CC Designs die.

I hope you enjoy the card and remember to play along on the blog with this week’s Anything Goes challenge!  Remember, there is also a DT call out, so if you think you might like to join, don’t forget to add DT to your entry when you link up!

How cute is that bear!  I did some coloring with my copics but I also did some paper piecing for her dress.  I used a variety of die cuts on this card.  The little white leaves were given to me in a swap.  The ovals are from CC designs (I got the dies in a swap!) and the Hello is from Stampin Up.  A few little gems from my stash and we are good to go.

I hope that you will play along with us this week.  We are excited to see what you can create!

How fun is this guy!  I paired him up with the Summer Fun collection from Fancy pants that I have been trying to use up, so it worked perfectly!  I colored him with my copics and then cut him out.  It’s really hard to tell from the picture but his cool shades and his floaty both have some glossy accents!
