Some fun!

Face it!
Blissful ATC swap
Stampsmith RAK:
Having had some minor "hand surgery" I havent stamped much- :(  Hope to change that!  It is a good time to show a couple of "fun" images I have and a rak I recieved.  This first card I made for a friend's birthday and I just LOVE the image called "Face it!" by the Stampsmith.  I used paper from an old BG pad and a time card someone sent me a while back.  I sewed the zig zag on my machine.  Arnt the faces hilarious? Next is an ATC I made for a swap using a stamp from a show I bought a long time ago, some rubbernecker inches and a few scraps I got in the mail .  Then last is a GORGEOUS rak from a Stampsmith fan using the image "Butterfly kiss" also available at the Stampsmith.  Sorry to say that the pic does not show really how absolutely beautiful this card is.  Thanks for looking- off to the "other job" now!  :)

My card for Thursday's S2G challenge is called "leg hug".  I colored with copics and popped up the image. The border punch is a new MS as well as the cute ornament.  The challenge is to use "leaves" on your card- and- mine are in the border!  This is a month of "thanks" over at S2G challenge blog- check it out!  I am thankful for all of you!  Blessings to you!

Copic Creations challenge by Tickled Pink stamps

Can someone please tell me where the time goes?  It IS Nov 15th already- :) This is "60s Willow" from Tickled Pink stamps and Kellie Winnell.  The new challenge over at Copic Creations blog is to shade on "paper pieced" images with your copics.  I absolutely HAD to pick this girl and those that know me KNOW why!  Her shirt, pant flowers and hair flowers are paper pieced and shaded with the "Cs"- 1, 2, 3, and 5.  The "peace" sentiment is from a little stamp store in New Mexico on the square in Santa Fe....................
miss visiting that place!  I was cracking up while paper piecing the bell girlfriends and I used to embroider on ours and then after my daughters were born I ALSO embroidered on their jeans! Those were the days!!  Go visit the blog to see the other great creations by the rest of our dt members and thanks for looking!

Time for week no. 2 of Shirley's 2 Girls "month of THANKS".  Here is my card using the image "Pilgrims" !  Count your Blessings!  I try to remember to count mine .  :)  Especially right 94 yr old FIL is in the Cleveland Clinic waiting to hear if he will qualify for a type of heart surgery.  People say...94?...He is a YOUNG 94 and we LOVE him to pieces!  Right now I am thankful for HIM!  Dp is this gorgeous pad I am crazy about and dont use enough, K&Co. Tim Coffey Tuscan Sunflowers.  I colored my Pilgrims with Copics and popped it up.  The twist over at the challenge blog is to use a pumpkin on your card.   Check out what the other girls did and enjoy the view!  There is always some good "candy" available when you join us for the challenge!

Back with the GIRLS! S2G!

Happy Thursday and I am posting for the Shirley's 2 Girls dt again!  What a great time to get back to these ADORABLE images!  With Fall in full swing and Thanksgiving JUST A FEW WEEKS AWAY, S2G and the dt wanted to do a little more then just share our weekly inspiration projects.  So, this week we are giving thanks to all of the blog participants and visitors.  Soooooo...START the Thanksgiving hop. You travel to each DT's blog to view her project for this week's challenge- (there will be a bonus here cuz the girls are sharing tips, tricks and tutorials along the way) :)  and there is a grand prize  (of course) and HIDDEN candy along the way! Just leave a comment on your way telling us WHAT you are thankful for!
Here is my card with the image "note of thanks".  I used BG jovial dp and colored  it with Copics , cut it out and popped it up. I am always in need of "thank yous" after the holidays and this will be one!   The leaves are from a Prima Calypso tin- Christmas flowers and leaves. My favorite "tip" to share is one I learned from a Copic dt sister-  when u cut out your image after coloring - take a black marker (NOT a copic) and go around the image to cover any flaws in your cutting!  This makes such a dramatic difference!  Love it! NOW...WANT to join us ??  Make a project using the word "thanks"! Link to the S2G blog and dont forget to start hopping!  If you came here via GINA you are in the right place!  Next stop is JUDY!  Feeling lost? Start at the blog for the full list!  Hey- dont forget to TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR! TFL!

"Make it Crafty" sponsoring Copic Creations for Nov 1st

Hi there- Copic Creations has an awesome sponsor for our new challenge !  Zoe from Make it Crafty!  The challenge is to use "browns" and second, if you wish, is to make a scene!  This was my first time to use an image from Make it Crafty and it was really fun!  I chose "open window" for my birthday card. This image was colored then cut out and put on BG dp. The sentiment was computer generated.  I used E53 -55-57 and 59 for my wood tones and if you would like to see more beautiful "browns" then check out what the fab dt did over at the Copic Creations blog! The prize donated by the awesome Zoe is some gorgeous brown Copic markers and images from her store!  Good Luck!  Happy November!
