Beautiful -- GD for TTCRD

I'm super excited today to be guest designing for Through The Craft Room Door Challenge blog!  TTCRD is an online craft community, challenge blog, and online magazine.  They have a little bit of everything and you can spend hours there.  Plus, there are lots of helpful people and friendships to be made.  If you're not already familiar with TTCRD, you owe it to yourself to check it out!
I had a great time making my card for today.  I used a digi from Anne's Digital Art.  Flowers and butterflies -- two of my favorite things to color!

I colored the digi with Copic markers, then sponged two shades of Tim Holtz distress ink on the edges while it was still in the Spellbinders die.  There's another Spellbinders die cut behind the image.  Some Cheery Lynn butterflies and half pearls from my stash finish off the card. 
Thank you to Through The Craft Room Door for this opportunity!  I had SO much FUN!

Season's Greetings, with Bling! for Eureka Stamps

It's Monday, and time for a new challenge at Eureka Stamps. The theme this week is "Add some bling".
I've been trying to make a Christmas card here and there, and I used a beautiful digi from Eureka Stamps to create this one.  

I colored the Season's Greetings Cardinal Card with Tim Holtz distress markers and a blending pen, using watercolor paper.  The card stock and glitter trim is from Close To My Heart. The bling is from my stash.
Cardinals make me happy.  I love their song, and their beautiful colors.  We had 5 of them at our bird feeder a couple days ago and it still makes me smile whenever I think of it.  And, I smile knowing I have another Christmas card to add to the stack!

Boo? For Whoopsi Daisy

It's Monday, and time for a new challenge on the Whoopsi Daisy Challenge blog.  The theme this week is "Use 2 or more Designer Papers".  I love to mix and match my papers, so this was FUN!


They may be a bit hard to see tucked back there behind that frightening(?) witch, but I used 3 designer Halloween papers from Fancy Pants that I've had fOrEveR!  I also used some American Crafts glitter paper.
That adorably scary witch is Whoopsi Daisy sheet 607.  I colored her with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company. The diagonal striped ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM -- it's brand new in the store.
Do you love working with designer papers? Come join in the challenge at Whoopsi Daisy!

Get Your Groove On! For DigiStamps4Joy

It's Sunday, and that means new releases at DigiStamps4Joy.  This week is no exception -- there are some fabulous new releases to check out!  I chose to work with the new release called "record player."  It took me back to the 70's:


I printed the "record player" digi 3 times, sizing it so I could use a 1 1/4 inch punch.


The papers are called Sarita.  They are retired, from Close To My Heart. The wood and pewter elements are also from CTMH.  I thought they had that 70's feel to them. The sentiment is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
Check out the rest of the creations from the DigiStamps4Joy design team.  And, if you're interested, there's a DT call going on right now.  It's a wonderful, extremely talented, supportive team.

 It's pumpkin time at QKR Stampede.  That's our theme for this week's challenge -- pumpkins! Fun!

A Thankful Heart -- for Timeless Twine

It's Monday, and I have the privilege of posting today on the Timeless Twine blog.  I come to you today with a thankful heart.  I don't take enough time to really look at my life and count my many, many blessings.  Some things happened over the last few days that made me do just that.  This card reflects my thankfulness for many things, including you, my loyal blog readers.
This month, at Timeless Twine, we are using this for our inspiration:


I used the photo and the twine colors to create this:


I used some watercolor paper, distress inks and a water brush, and used a Stamp of the Week from Unity Stamp Company. The sentiment is part of the stamp set.
The designer paper is Close To My Heart Pathfinding Collection.  The chipboard leaves are from UmWow Studio.
Twine colors used:






I hope you're heart is thankful and grateful this Monday, and throughout the week.  Happy Fall!
