Year End….

Hi everyone.  This is my newest card and it’s for the “Bloobel Progressive Challenge” for May. Having several Teachers in our family, I thought it was a perfect card to send to one of them.  By this time of the year I thought that they all must feel this way, not just the students! Don’t you think so?

The cute digital image is by Bloobel and called “Bored at Work.” He’s been colored with my Copic Markers, White Gelly Roll Pen, and Prisma Pencils.

I used a Spellbinger Die for the basic background shapes and then used the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Speech Bubble and Sentiment are both computer generated.

The Pattern Papers are more “Oldies” that I dug out of my 8½ x 11 drawer. Sorry, but neither had a name on them. The Red Cardstock was a scrap.

I hope you were able to grab this free image and enter the challenge.  If not, sign up so you can get the Free June Image when it’s released.

Thanks for stopping by.

Graduation 2017….

It’s the 15th of the month and time for our May Bugaboo Crafty Challenge.  I picked this adorable “Ava Grad Diploma” image from the Bugaboo Digital Stamp Store.  It’s a most appropriate image for this time of the year, plus I wanted to make a card for a family member who is graduating from Kindergarten this year.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a White Gell Pen. I really dug through my old papers and came up with one that is from one of the very first Paper Books that I bought made by Paper Pizazz.  It has to be close to 30 years old! And speaking of “very old,” you can add these “School Days” Stickers by Francis Myer, Inc., to the list.

The Dies I used are the Bottle Cap Letters and Numbers by Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.

I hope you can join us this month and share your creation with us….You could be the winner!  Also remember that the Bugaboo Store has been revamped recently and if you haven’t been there lately, you might have to set up a new sigh in.

Have a great month!

Hello Ladies….

This card is for the “Crafty Awesomeness” May Challenge.  The featured artist this month is Digital Artist Rick St. Dennis. I chose this saucy lady called “Morning Goddess Edie.” I loved all the cats gathered around her feet and meowing for their breakfast! How many of you go through the name thing each morning?

I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and dotted the background with a Gray Copic Marker and with White Opal Liquid Pearls. The Paper I used is from a stack called “Animal Prints” by America Crafts.  I had just picked it up on sale at a Beals Outlet and thought it would go perfect with the cats.

I used the Stitched Scalloped Oval Dies by Gina Marie and also the Bottle Cap Letters by Die-Namics by MFT.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you grab an image and play along with us this month.

HELLO….

Hello everyone.  This card is for the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for April.  The Digi is part of a set of flowers that Lisa did and one in which we could pick out the image we wanted to color for this month’s Challenge.  I chose “Arthur Aster.” Check them out and see which one you like the best.

I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers.  The papers were all from my scraps folder.  The “Hello” die is by Momenta and bought at Hobby Lobby. The Cloud and Banner die are Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. The Corners are done by a Fiskars Corner Punch.

I hope you were able to get your image in time to enter this month’s challenge. If so, you are eligible for next month’s free digi.  If not, you can buy it and enter.

Being Earth Friendly….

Our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge this month uses one of the awesome Bundles from Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  These great “Stick Figures” can be used for so many things.

I’ve finished two of the set here and will add others during the month. These are all concerning being “Earth Friendly” and will eventually end up being a set of cards that I will be sending to a friend who is a great advocate of Recycling, Planting Plants and Trees and generally making the Earth a better place for our children and grandchildren.

These images are colored with my Copic Markers and tied with Twine from my stash. I also used my Martha Stewart Score Board to make some lines along the bottom of the card. I used the Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper on the bottom corners of the card.  The Cloud and Letters are Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.
