The new challenge over at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog is to use fruit on your card/ can be part of your DP, your image, or even your embellishments...
I have used it as my main image....these little cuties oranges are from the Squigglefly store set called:  BIRTHDAY SET by Michelle Bertuzzi. This amazing set comes with 13 images for only $4.00!!!

I would like to enter this into the challenge over at Docerela Creations as well....which is to use yellow or orange with ribbon.

Dots, new stamps, and a couple challenges....

Whoooohoooo!! I received my new stamps from Craftin Desert Divas tonight!! (Which was amazingly fast, as I only just ordered them on Saturday!!) Tara just started selling stamp sets....and I used one of them on my card tonight. The image is a digital image from Squigglefly....Easter Bunny and Eggs (which comes with 4 eggs, but I only used one of them). The sentiment I have used has came from the Craftin Desert Divas stamp set: PUNNY.  The sketch I followed is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Blog.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I have used DP from Simple Stories-Vintage Bliss
Images colored with copics and glitter glue added from Studio G. 
Elegant Edges & George cricut carts (for the flower and for the scalloped circle and circle that the bunny is sitting on). 
EK Success circle punch 
Dots on my bunnies ears and tail were added with a Gelly Roll Pen.
Gem from K&Company
SU Strawberry Slush Ink
Sentiment was stamped on a die-cut from My Creative Time (Just Simply Live)

Hi all!
I got a card made today for my hubby's Dad's birthday....I used a digi image that I had in the folder named "Dustin Pike"-so I am hoping that is correct, and think that is where is it is from...

The "happy' and "birthday" are from a couple of MCT stamp sets. 
( Honey Do List-and Choclolate Greetings)
I have colored up with my copics.
                                                     Hope you all have a great day!!

Quick Squigglefly Birthday Card

Hi all, just real quick wanted to pop on my blog and share a Birthday card I made.....I have used a digital image from the  SQUIGGLEFLY Store. The image is: ROOSTER by Angie Davis.

I have colored this gorgeous image with my copics, and tried to add in some depth to the feathers-I guess it worked a tad bit...but I really need to work on my coloring skills! I have used a sentiment "down on the farm" from CardzTV's stamp set "Country at Heart" and the Happy Birthday is from a SU stamp set called "Teeny Tiny Wishes". The tab for the "Happy Birthday" sentiment is a die from My Creative Time "Stitched Tab Die". I added a couple of gems, and some Tim Holtz Tea Dye inking around some of the edges.
Thanks for stopping by today, I would love to hear what you think of my Birthday card!

I would like to enter this card into the Crafty Desert Diva's Birthday Linky Party.

So lucky....

Hello! I am so lucky....for so many things, and that is part of the sentiment on this fun St. Patrick's day card! I have used The Cutting Cafe's -  4 Leaf Clover Shaped Card-Template- it comes with two circle sentiments, one of which I have used on my card. I didn't use the template for the card- just the extra pieces to make my 4 leaf clover. I printed it out a couple of times, then cut the pieces out. The sentiment "Happy St. Patrick's Day" is from Docerela's stamp set Mix and Match 3. I added a bit of twine, and a couple of gems as well.

I think it makes for a sunny, bright, good luck charm card!!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges....
