This is one of my favorite images to use.  It’s an older  one and honestly I am not even sure that you can get it anymore in the store, (but who knows it could turn up as a freebie posted by me;) ).
I wanted a simple thank you card.  Now normally I am not a pink person, but I wanted to use some pink scraps I had found and so I decided to give it a whirl.
Almost everything on this card is from my stash.  I did emboss the one panel using my hearts Cuttlebug folder.  The ribbon is SavvynSassy.  I just colored the image with my copics, did a bit of a doodle border and the added a bit of bling in the corners.   The stamped sentiment was sent to me in a swap.   (I apologize for the bad picture..)
I’ve entered into the following challenges:
Charizma Cards: Anything goes
Paper Shelter: Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious: Rocked up Pink (use mostly pink)
Creative Card Crew: Anything Goes
I also wanted to share with you just for fun, some other older AIF projects that I did with the same image
and this one
Enjoy! and don’t forget to hop!

Sarah Hurley Challenge #45 Colouring

It’s a new challenged at the Sarah Hurley Challenge blog today and this week we are being sponsored by

Yay! Robyn has graciously donated

5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 digital paper set of their choice.  A very awesome prize to be sure.  Here is my project this week using Robyn’s best friends bunnies

I cut the tag using my cricut and added a punched border, some inking, my baker’s twine (from my Whisker Graphics win on FB) a button flower, paper flowers and some jute.  The image was colored (since this is our theme after all) using my Copics!  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to stop by the blog to enter your own colored project to win.

If Friends Were Flowers

I had thought that I had autoposted this yesterday but looks like I had only saved it as a draft. Yikes

You can find all the challenge details listed here on the blog.    We are being sponsored by Di’s Digi Downloads this week.  The lucky winner will win 5 (five) of Di’s great images.Here is my card this week.

The DP was part of a swap that I did.  My c/s is Bazill.  I colored with my copics of course.  The bling is from the $$ store and the sentiment was sent to me as part of a swap for one of the facebook groups I’m in.  I hope you like it and I can’t wait to see your challenge project this week!  The ribbon is savvynsassy (the light pink) and my stash (dark pink) and the button was sent to me in a swap as well.

Bling it!

It’s challenge day at Lollipop Crafts. Sorry for the late post but I have a sick little boy.  😦  Our sponsor for this week’s challenge is Digi’s with Attitude! Oh they have such cute stuff!

The theme Kris picked this week is to Bling it! You’ve got it and we want to see it. Anything that sparkles and shines, rhinestones, glitter, stickles, whatever! Any project will do, you don’t have to just create a card, you can do an ATC, a 3D project, altered art …it’s limitless

Here’s my card for this week’s challenge.  I have been working on some circle journals so I decided to use the scrap paper I had left over to create my challenges this week.  It was fun to see what I could come up with.

The paper is an old Prima line that i have had forever.  I added some rhinestones and stickles from my stash to bling her up.  Colored of course with my copics!

Flutterby, Butterfly

Oh wow! I am so sorry, I forgot to post my challenge yesterday for Lollipop Crafts and we have such a good one!  Robyn’s Fetish is graciously sponsoring this week’s butterfly challenge!  I’m sure you’ve seen her images all over blog land and she has such cute ones too!  We would love to see butterflies on your project!  It can be the main focus or a cute embellishment as in the case of my card!  Make sure you stop by the challenge blog for all the details and to win some great images from Robyn!

Here’s my DT card this week:

I colored my image using copics of course.  Cut out with my shaped nestiblity.  I added some flocking for the grass and a few brads for some added dimension.  The butterflies are just ones that I picked up at the dollar store ages ago and not used yet.  The paper was sent to me as part of a paper swap on (if you like to do swaps, check it out!)  I hope you enjoy it and make sure you stop by the Lollipop challenge blog for all the deets on this week’s challenge and also to see all the great creations by the DT this week!
