2 Crafty Critters

Challenge # 53 is up over on the 2 Crafty Critters blog and this month we are being sponsored by Sheepski Designs!

Something a bit different this month.  We’re partnering with Double Troubleand here’s a bit about their theme which runs from August 1 through August 19.Challenge #90 

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker – says, “Cleo, my purr-ty furbaby, is excited that August 8th is International Cat Day.  She’s “feline” that purr-haps it’s time for us to do something claw-some.  Cleo wants to celebrate all of her fur-ends by creating a project that includes any baby animal, e.g. kitten, puppy, chick, elephant.  She thinks this challenge is a paw-sibility, it’s purr-fect and will be pun for all.” 
You can paws here… OR … use Twisted Sister’s optional twist for an additional chance to our random draw.     


Thing 2:  Double Trouble
says, “Is this fur real? Let’s paws… I think I need a cat-titude adjustment. As long as mew have included a cute or baby animal, do not fur-get to enter your project HERE at 2CraftyCritterCrazies. I’m sure they will also like to see your claw-some projects.”  Don’t paws here but,  check out Cleo’s ‘Mew and Your Paw-some Pet” additional Special Random Draw located after the Design Team’s inspirational projects.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister says, “Paw-don me, are you kitten me?  This is hiss-terical!  I am purr-ple with laughter.   Let’s see if mew  can come up with a pun for your baby animal or feel free to use one of ours.  Have some pun with this optional twist.  
And you’re already entering at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies so pop on over to Double Trouble and enter their challenge, too.  If it fits ours, it will fit their theme!  😀

I’m using the SheepSki Designs Image ” Dragons Fly”. I thought it would be fun because I don’t have any dragons!

Ya, you’re not seeing things. That’s some Echo Park and Doodlebug in there. Just when you thought it was gone! I colored the image with my copics and then cut them out and popped them up . I also added some Nuevo drops and some random word stickers I had.

Come play along with us this month. You have until August 25th to enter!

Get Well Soon

Hello again! Two posts in one day…wow! Going from not so busy to busier than a bee.  We have a new challenge over at Penny’s Paper Crafty this week which is being sponsored by multiple sponsors, one of which I am highlighting this week…Dustin Pike.

I am sure that you’ve seen these adorable dragons all over blogland.

I decided to make a get well soon card as I’ve not done one in awhile and you just never know when one comes in handy (like for your son’s preschool teacher who’s home sick 🙂 )

 

As you can see, I used the Basic Grey offbeat papers again.  I thought they were kinda upbeat and cheery for a get well card.  I paired the image with just a great stamp from Michael’s that I got, again in the Spiced Marmalade ink.  I added some ribbon and a border punch as well as a little heart button from my stash.

I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to enter our buttons and/or ribbon challenge at Penny’s today for your chance to win one of several great prizes!

New Cards

I had to make some cards for a swap in my Just Cards and my Crazy Card Makers groups on Yahoo. 

The theme for the first one was fantasy, so some kind of fantasy creature..I chose a dragon digital that I had found and colored it with my copics.  I also used some of my older K & Company paper that I have had forever (I’m trying to use up old stock)

Next theme was just a spring card, remember, I’m still learning how to use my Copics.  I didn’t at the time have the right color for faces but I tried the best I could.

and finally the theme was  an ‘X’ card..so I chose ‘xoxoxo’
