Challenge 17 for Squigglefly

Hi- I know I have missing in action-but finally the garage sale is over, and so is the workshop! Both were fun, but I am glad they are over! This weeks challenge over at Squigglefly was to make a shaped card. Here is my take on the challenge. I printed the image on cardstock, and then printed it again on DS paper. The DS paper is from SU. Added a quick sentiment out of a SU set, and a ribbon, and I have a shaped card-oh I did color some with copics too. Hope you like it Kim! Ohhhh....and don't forget to watch for Squigglef's special news coming in September, and make sure to check out all the awesome DT cards this week here.

Double digi card

Hi Ya'll-well I got a little bit of card making in between customers of the garage sale. It has been super slow today because of the weather-it has been raining all day and is quite cold for this time of the year! Here is a card I have made with digi images from two different places-the sentiment is from squigglefly and the main image is one I found on this site-called Mo's Digital Pencil.
I have also used some new SU Papers and a scallop punch with my big shot. Also lots of stickles. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Stef's color challenge!

Stef has set out a color challenge! I had lots of fun doing this one, as these colors are magnificent together! The image is a new one from Squigglefly, I won it last weekend-thanks Holly, Stef, and SF!!! I added losts of glitter-just for Stef-as you know she is the "glitter babe"!! The challenge was to use Bermuda Bay, soft suede and Dusty Durango.
I got the cutest card from Holly today-a magic card-and she sent along directions, so once I have all the materials, I will give it a try-and let you know if I was succesful!
On another note-any of you ever feel you really needed to change jobs, or at least transfer to another store/station other than the one you work at? I am at that spot right now, and am so frustrated that I don't know what the right decision is!!! Anyone have a crystal ball?

Flower wishes and Angel kisses

That is the sentiment I put on the card that I finished tonight. Here is a look at it-and then you know why! Isn't she GORGEOUS!!! I love this image, so sweet and innocent! You can find her on the squigglefly site here.
The awesome little angel I have added to the card-I purchased from Dawny-her blog is here and she is so very talented, and sells these little yummies at a very fair price!! Check out her blog!! Here is a photo of the rest of them -they are a little easier to see when not on a card already!

wanna see my card for the next card contest???

Well, this is another image from Squigglefly ! I love it!!
The card contest needed to involve 'WATER" so I figured this image would be perfect! The artist of this one is the very talented Lynne Stansberg! I love all the detail in her images! This took a while to color-but was well worth the time! When the cards are entered in this contest - you don't get them back-as they get sent to someone. I will definately have to make another of these ones for me!
I colored with copics, and the cardstock-ds papers, ribbon are all SU-
sentiment was done on my computer, and the flowers and brad are form my stash! I also added some stickles for the "waves". Hope you like it!

With sympathy/ and some GREAT NEWS!!

My cards today are sympathy cards-I dont like doing sympathy cards-but I figure that is probably one of the most important times to send a card to someone! Most everything is SU - the cardstock-ds papers-and embellishments! I have embossed with a sU stamp sentiment-"with sympathy".

Now for the GREAT NEWS!! I am so excited again today-but for a totally different reason!! I have got down to my "Next" goal as far as weight loss goes! I am very thankful and feel much better! I know I can keep it up now-I havent' been this low on the scale for years!!! Yahoo!!! Have a great rest of the day!
Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the Squigglefly Challenge # 14!!!
Gotta go work on a couple cards for our big digi day event on April 14th-don't forget to mark it on your calendar!!!

I got all of this stuff, the first pic is the garage sale stuff-and the 2nd and 3rd the new loot I found!!! AND....another great thing is that in a couple of days they will let me know how much my items in the garage sale went for, and then I get to go pick out itmes from the store for that amount!!! Yeah!!

Hi everyone! Well, it seems this is a super busy time for everybody-I for one am ready for summer to wind down and get back to having some time to craft! I have a card to show today that I have made and need to get out as it was already a "belated" birthday to begin with! I have used another image from squigglefly-this one is called Dancing Denise and is by the artist Lynne Stansbery!! isn't she so much fun! She is just ready to PARTY!!!! So since she seems to be a little on the wild side, I have colored her up in some wildish duds and used some snazzy papers for behind her! I hope the gal she is for will like her!!

REMINDER to mark your calendars gals!! There is a ton of fun coming your way on August 14th -7-9 pm! You will want to be included in this -so bookmark this addy-

Hi yall! Todays card is made with an image from the very talented Tracey! You can find this wonderful image over at Squigglefly!! This image just screams "lots of color-Please"!! A super fun image to color up! I used some SU cardstock and ds papers are from the new "June Bug" paper pad by basic grey! Some really cool papers in that one! Some flowers and brad from my stash-I colored with copics and used my computer for the sentiment, I also used a few stickles on the sun! Punched out sentiment with a SU punch.
Did you see all the cool cards over on the Squigglefly BLOG today? If not, try to get over there-it is really neat to see how different the cards can be, all made with the same image! Thanks for stopping by-and I would love to hear what you think!

Squigglefly challenge time!

Well it is time again for our weekly challenge over at the SQUIGGLEFLY BLOG! This weeks challenge was to use this gorgeous reindeer! The artist who drew this one is Chesney Young-isn't it adorable! You can't really tell in the photo but I have added flocking to the antlers and they are nice and fuzzy! Cardstock and sentiment are SU and ds paper is from the christmas glitter stack by DCWV. Colored with copics, and I used the SU scallop oval and snowflake punches as well. Some flowers and a christmas brad from my stash, and I'm all done!!

Hoot Hoot!!

Hello again! I am back with another card tonight! This is also an image from squigglefly called Hooty Who and the artist of this one is Nina. I like how this card turned out-I used Holly's technique on how to add the sentiment right to the image-Thanks Holly!!


Yahoo! I got to make another card today!! I don't know if it is only me-but ya know-I start feeling really grumpy when I don't get my time to make a card! I guess I feel like deprived or something! Anyways, todays card is an image that I have had for a while and jsut getting around to making a card with!! I love it! Isn't this just too cute-I can just imagine a little kitty really suggling up in a stray boot! Yesterday I started telling you which artist drew the image, and I will try to remember to do that-they deserve so much recogniton for giving us such joy coloring and creating with their drawings! This image is by Pam West and can be found here. Papers are from (I believe) Su and the ds paper is from "the crafty stack" by dcwv. I must admit I am addicted to papers-that is by far the item I most search for when out and about craft shopping! Then I hate to use them! But yet-I keep buying more....Have you seen the new Basic Grey-Lemonade and June Bug? SO CUTE!!! Well, hope you like this cute kitty-Have a super duper rest of your weekend!
