“Eat More Ham”…

…Can’t you just hear him saying bleating that?  I sure can.  I really felt for him when I saw this image for the first time and just had to have it for a Thanks Giving card.  I have some very quirky friends who will love it.

I made this card for our current monthly “Just-For-Fun Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.  We always have some nice sketches to follow.

The image is a digital one by Boobel and is named “Turkey”. He is priced at only $1.50 right now. I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers, a few Prisma Colored Pencils, and I highlighted him with black and red Sakura Pens. I also used Color Box Chestnut Roan Ink to highlight the image. I fussy-cut and popped him with foam tabs, and I couldn’t resist giving him some Google Eyes.

The papers are from a Cloud 9 Stack called “Speciality Papers” and is quite old. It’s a great stack because it covers all 4 seasons.

The letters are cut from the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The assorted Sequins, which come in several boxed color sets, are also from MFT. I also used 2 of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square Dies because I can never get them all cut the same size! LOL.

A Hug 4 – U

This is my Design Team Post for The October “Crafty Awesomeness” Monthly Challenge. The adorable image is a digital one from Sasayaki Glitter “Midsummer night’s dream”, which I colored with Copic Markers.  It’s available here. I thought it made a perfect Christmas Card.

I used a  pre-made card base by Recollections from Michaels. All the patterned papers are from a Christmas Stack that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby and is called “Snow Day” by The Paper Studio.

The small letters are from the Bottle Cap Dies from Die-namics by My Favorite Things and the number and larger letter is by Momenta and was purchased at Hobby Lobby.  The “Wonky” Ovals are also from MFT.

I also used my Corner Chomper and some Foam Adhesive Dots to pop my embellishments.

Ladies and Gentlemen….

It’s Friday and we have a new Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge Image for you from Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delights. This is also from her Circus set. The image is a choice of “Word Art” to be used with her Circus Images.

I chose “Ladies And Gentlemen” to go with my Ringmaster image.  My image is colored with Copic Markers and placed against a background made from an assortment of papers and images cut from the “Le Cirque” Paper Stack by Graphic 45.

I have highlighted her hat band and some of her clothes with Ranger “Star Dust” Stickles, and I also used Zig’s “Wink of Stella” Clear Glitter Pen and Silver Glitter Pen.

Memories Of You….

This card’s adorable image is from “A Day For Daisies” and has been sitting in my colored pile for quite a while.  I thought I’d finish the card before I get into more of the Fall/Winter/Christmas Cards.

It’s basically a very simple card which I colored with my Copic Markers. I did choose to round the corners and put some lines across the bottom with my Martha Steward Minnie Score Board. I also used a Zig Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen, but it’s very hard to see if the photo.

I also added some die cuts that I had recently bought.  The word “Hi” is by Die-namics by MFT, the Sea Horse and Circles are by Memory Box, and the Coral is From Gina Marie Dies.

Thanks for looking, Dee




This is a card I made for the Crafting Circle Monthly “Just For Fun Challenge.” It’s Sketch #4.

The papers were all in my stash as were the wooden buttons.  The “Hello” Die is Die-namics by My Favorite Things.  The bigger leaves are from a Gina Marie Die and the very small leaves were punched from an old punch I had by “Family Treasures.”

The Sequins are from “My Favorite Things” and so is the “Gift Box Cover-Up” Die.

I was not pleased with how the Vellum worked for a shaker card and next time I will use some kind of Acetate.
