Here we go folks, this week’s challenge is up and ready to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Ok, a great sketch for you to play along with!

Since we are heading into St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to dip into my green bin and came up with this little card. I used some scraps of green and I added some stickers. For the main sentiment, I put the sticker onto some black cardstock and then popped it up with pop dots.

Head on over to the blog and see the great DT projects to inspire you and don’t forget to play along with us!

Giraffe in Green

Happy Friday one and all!  Today is a new challenge on the Kitty Bee Designs blog!  Our theme this week is a really fun one – SAFARI ANIMALS!  Lions and Tigers and Bears oh my!

I’m using a fun image from our sponsor The Paper Shelter.  It’s Giraffes on Holiday and it’s these really adorable giraffes during different holidays in the year.

I know it’s early but I really wanted to do the St. Patrick’s day one… Eventually I will have to jump on the Valentine’s Day bandwagon, but not quite yet.   I chose to go with a pre-colored one for my card and just added a few items from my stash.  I don’t have a lot of St. Patrick’s day stuff so I just pulled a few things from a bag that I add to throughout the year that I think might work.


I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us this week.  We can’t see what wild safari animals you find in your stash!


Go Green

Hello all….

Green is my favorite color so I love ST. Patrick’s Day.  However, I don’t have a lot of supplies for the day so I don’t make a lot of cards.

I did give it a shot with some old stuff I had in my holiday box.  The paper is from Reminisce and some Imagination Project from 2005.  I don’t even think they are around anymore.

The image is a freebie that I got from Miss Kate Cuttables called Happy Pot O Gold 🙂  I just did a flatten in my design space. The ribbon is just from Michaels and the stamp is from Stampin Up (Greatest Greetings)

I created this for the Paper Play Sketches challenge this week.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s all about the green this week at Creative Corner Challenges.  It’s my month to host and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up my challenge this week is Go Green.  You have to have something green on your project.  An easy challenge to be sure, so I hope many people sign up.  I’m even offering a little prize this week.

Here’s my card for this week’s challenge.  green

Surprisingly, with St. Pat’s being one of my favorite holidays (purely for the green factor) I don’t have a lot of St. Pat’s stuff.  I had green paper but nothing to go with it.  I printed off this image from Bugaboo Stamps as it was offered as a freebie although now I think it is for purchase in the store, thank goodness and the shamrock i cut out using my Cricut.  This is a really simple and flat card because it’s doing double duty.  Not only is it for this challenge but I need to mail it out for a St. Patrick’s day swap on  The paper was all from my stash and I colored the image with my copics.  I hope you enjoy it and please stop by the blog and play with us this week.

Vintage St. Paddy’s Day

Hey there…so my last tag challenge as the Tag Diva for Challenge Masters, is to create a green can be any subject as long as it is mainly green…you can check out all the deets here by the way…

So this is the one I created.  I colored my tag using Pine Needles, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Inks with a little Vintage Photo thrown in.  I had printed off a vintage pic from the internet because I really don’t have a lot of St. Patrick’s Day images.  I used the vintage photo on it as well and then the rest of the tag was just made using some bits and bobs from my stash. The DP is some BG I’ve been using for other projects..The flower I inked up a bit to blend it with the tag and same with the lacy ribbon on the bottom (it was originally beige).  I hope you like it and stop over and join our challenges this week as well!
