Crafty Girlz Challenge 1

There's a new challenge blog in blogland-Crafty Girlz!  Challenges start on the 15th of every month and are monthly.  The challenge has a theme or you can play anything goes!  So no excuse not to join the fun.

Our theme this month is April Showers/Anything Goes.  We're sponsored by Rosey Hearts, Lacy Sunshine, and A Day for Daisies this month.  I shouldn't have favorite sponsors, but this is a pretty great lineup-right?!

I used "Rain or Shine" by Unity Stamp Co to make a bridal shower card.


Supplies: Paper-K&Co, Stamps: Hero Arts and Unity, Coloring Medium-Spectrum Noir

Hope you join the fun at Crafty Girlz!

CLBC Challenge #2

Happy April!  It's time for another Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge.  As always the theme is anything goes.  We have 2 fab sponsors this month.  Stitchy Bear and Oddball Art.

I used Butter Blue by Barbra Jensen Designs for my first card.  With a name like that, obviously this fairy needed to be colored blue.

Supplies:  Image-Stitchy Bear, Coloring Medium-Spectrum Noir and Prismacolor, Paper-DCWV, Embellishments-Chatterbox

I also made a bookmark using Bonnie Bookworm by Oddball Art.


 The quote seemed perfect for the image and for a bookmark.

Now I really want to go to the library. 

Can't wait to see what you come up with.  Be sure to link to Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Creative Ladybirds Creations March Challenge

It's here!  It's finally here!  The Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenges start today.  The challenges are monthly and the theme is always anything goes.

We're sponsored by 3 different digi companies this month and there is tons of inspiration on the challenge blog.  So check it out and enter HERE.

I used Birthday Monsters by Bugaboo for my first card.  Those fun monsters were just asking for some bold fun colors.

It was so much fun to color that I just couldn't stop, so I added lots of sparkle with my Wink of Stella glitter pen and some shiny balloons, eyes, horns, and teeth with Glossy Accents.  Here's an angled close up in the light.


For my second card, I used Cowboy from Ike's Art.  I've loved Ike's digis ever since I was part of her design team and it was a real treat to showcase her fabulous work.

Image-Ike's Art, Paper-Paper Studio, Coloring Medium-Prismacolor, Brads-Making Memories

It's a simple card, but it took me hours to shade that horse!  I might send this to my husband's grandmother.  Her late husband was a rancher and this image looks like a picture we have of him on his favorite horse.

Can't wait to see your projects this month!

BIC #60

It's time for another Be Inspired Challenge by The Alley Way Stamps.  Here's the inspiration photo:


I was inspired by the tree in the upper left of the picture.  I loved the contrast of the white tree with the bold red and green.  I also was inspired by the snowflakes in the opposite corner of the photo.

I just purchased TAWS's Chick Magnet stamp set.  The expression on the chickens crack me up!  I wanted to use it, but wasn't sure how to make it a holiday card.  Then I thought how I always make a tangled mess of lights when setting up the tree and realized that chicken's surprised expression probably matches mine in a holiday light mess.  I used Jolly Holiday for the lights and sentiment to make a hilarious Christmas card.


I'll probably have a few more holiday cards posted before the 25th.  Have you mailed your Christmas cards yet?  Mine are still in a pile on my craft desk.  Better mail them soon.
