Pretty in pink

WOW it is Sunday and I have only made one card today. Usually that is my stamping day but I did get some stamping done yesterday so I guess it evened out. This card I made using a digi stamp by The Stamping Boutique. I did something different my nestie wasn't big enough for the image and I had seen this technique where you leave part of the design out of the nestie. I cut in a little too far on the design but it worked out OK. I love these flowers I think they are flooradoodle. The paper is Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. The sketch is the Friday Sketchers and the pink is for the One Stop Craft Challenge Thanks for looking.

Chelsea in Brown Critter Sketch

I made this card for the Critter Sketch challenge I had been looking at this sketch all week and then I decided to do kind of a rock theme and got out some papers and the monochromatic look just kind of fell into place. I never do monochromatic so this was a different look for me as I usually am using very bright colors. The stars were cut out with my slice. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Two cards Green and Yellow

This card was made for the charisma challenge which was the sketch

This card was made for the
High Hopes challenge to add texture. I cuttlebug embossed the side panel
Paper Sundaes to distress something I distressed the embossed paper on the cordenations paper
Crazy for challenges was the sketch
OK I really don't do green very often but one of my Secret sis's got me 3 of the dustin pike High Hopes dragon stamps so you might be seeing some more green unless I decide to color the dragons pink which is a possiblility but this dragon is green. Now the second card is a freebie from polycraft a new to me digi company. I kind of regret my colors of the baloon but with black you can't change it after it is done so it is the way it is. I think I would have rather it be green. Anyway Thanks for looking.

There theme this week was to use plaid and so I went with this new plaid paper that I got today at Michael's.

I like the colors. I like the image. I don't know it just didn't wow me but hopefully it will bring a smile to this little girl. Thanks for looking.

Michelle Perkett Love Blog Hop

I am really excited to be part of the Michelle Perkett blog hop. Michelle gave us this great image to use and we were to also write a love letter to someone near and dear to our heart. You should start the blog hop here This is the beginning of the blog hop.

I made this little box for my dear daughter, Alyssa. Many of you know her because she has her own little stamping challenge. She is eleven years old and the center of my world. I made the template for this box myself because I needed the box to be rectangular and I hadn't seen a design for one so I just made one myself. I glued prima flowers around the perimeter of the box and added rhinestones. I colored the image with my copics and bordered the image with my martha stewart loop punch. Inside the box I made ten tags. Each tag is numbered and says one thing per tag of what I love about my daughter. I know that she will love this little box and I will give it to her for Valentine's. Thanks for looking and now you are off to the next blog

Two new Cards using my New Slice

This first card is made for the Spoon Full of Sugar sketch challenge and for the Designed To Delight progressive challenge You still have a few more days to pick up this owl freebie. This card is also for Stamp, Scrap and Doodle which the challenge was to use no red on a Valentine card Colored with copics and I added a paper heart doily from the $1 spot at Target. The sentiment and heart were cut with my slice.

This next card was for the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge which the challenge was to use torn pieces of paper in your creation. It is also for the Inspirational card sketches for the sketch that I used. Colored with copics. The paper is sugar rush by Basic Grey. The embellishments were cut from my slice. Thanks so much for looking.

I don't really have all the kinks worked out of my new slice but I've been playing with it for a few days and am ready to add a few slice embellishments to my cards.
