Old Year/New Year Challenge

This is my first card done as a design team member for Jellypark Challenges. I used the Space rocket image to create with. The challenge is "something new, something old". My image is new and the papers are all old. The planet, stars and sentiment are from an old stamp set that I have had for a couple of years. The yellow frame around the border is actually from an old greeting card that I cut into the frame using a Nestibility die.
Go on over to Jellypark Challenges and see all of the wonderful creations created by the design team and then try your hand a the challenge. It's a great way to use up some of those dodads that have been hanging around on your craft table for a while!
I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Card Crafter's Circle Challenge #3 - Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles - Anything Goes
Fashionista Friday #98 - Use Up Your Stash
Fun With Shapes & More - Use a die cut/punch

Warm Winter Wishes

Another day closer to Christmas and another creation using images by Doodle Pantry! This time I combined the images from Christmas Wreath and Quirky Penguin) using the already colored images from those sets. I used the partial wreath from the wreath set and just played with it in photoshop until it looked like a crown on the penguins head! I love that the images come both as outline and colored so you can decide which to use. I am counting down to Christmas so I used the colored images for my card. So much quicker! Laurie has amazing images and great prices so be sure to check her store out. You will be happy you did!

A very Merry

Hi everyone! Well there are only 6 days until Christmas and I am not ready yet! How are you doing with preparations for the big day? I still have more cookies to bake, more gifts to shop for and then wrap and lots of other things to do!
Today's card was made using images that are already colored from Doodle Pantry. The colored images make it so easy to finish a card when you have lots to do and not a lot of time! I combined two different images ( Christmas Wreath and Quirky Donkey) by putting a garland wreath around this sweet donkey's neck.
Check out all of the wonderful images at Doodle Pantry and have a great day!

Naughty...or Nice?

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a card I made using a sentiment from Create with TLC and a House Mouse stamp. What box should he check for you?! Haha!
I used my Elegant Edges cartridge to cut out the shape for the sentiment. Some kraft paper and green card stock to back it with a little distress ink around the edges. My papers are from DCWV. The ribbon was recycled from my xmas ribbons last year. (It was too pretty to throw out!). My image was colored with Copic markers and I yused some glitter glue for the white part of the santa hat. All in probably took me longer to figure out the design then to create it! (Isn't that always the way it is?)

Challenge #93 at Critter Sketch

This week at Critter Sketch our challenge is a sketch:

We are sponsored all this month by Stamp Fairy and boy oh boy do they have some wonderful images! I chose to work with this cutie called, "Peapod 5". I don't think it was meant for a Holiday card...(probably perfect for a new baby card) but I wanted to try something different and I am glad I did! Check it out below...

Go over to Critter Sketch Challenge blog and give a "look see" at what the other DT members have created for you. I hope to see your creation soon...

12 Days of Christmas Gift

Here is my project that I promised you all yesterday. I used the colored images from Doodle Pantry's 12 Days of Christmas along with the circle sentiments to make my days. I used Elegant Edges cartridge to make the scallops which I have placed behind each image. My background paper is from K & Co. I then took the one sentiment from the 12 Days set and combined it with Laurie's Holly Image to place in the middle. This is framed in a glass front frame (12" x 12"). This will be a present for my daughter! I really love how it turned out! I hope she does too. ( Very hard to photograph because of the frame...sorry for the bad pic...really vibrant IRL)
Doodle Pantry does not have any releases this month but they are having a super sale so be sure to check it out!

CDAC Progressive Challenge...Round 8 !

The theme for this round of challenges at CDAC is "Animals Hold our Hearts". I love my puppy (She's a Weimeraner) but boy can she get into mischief!
My image is from Just Some Lines. I love this adorable puppy and knew that the sentiment from Create With TLC was just the perfect caption for the picture! I also used another sentiment from Create With TLC on my layout.
There are such cute images that are up for this challenge at CDAC so go on over and check them out! I love all of the wonderful creations by my fellow design team members. Such wonderful inspiration!
