B-I-N-G-O!!

I just love Bingo, don't you?

But hold on there Skippy, there's a whole new way to play and it's super fun! Sandy of Scribbles Designs decided to make the last challenge of the year a fun game of Card Bingo. If you haven't played a BINGO challenge before it is a pretty easy concept to follow.  Simply create a card or other kind of project using any 5 items listed below in a row--across, down or diagonally, it is up to you.  Just as long as you follow the standard 5 in a row using those elements to create your card you will be just fine! Here's Sandy's Bingo board.


I decided I'd had enough Christmas cards for the year, already made, signed, addressed and mailed my cards for this year, soooo, I came across this  GREAT image set - super funny.


Images I've used: When Crap Happens

I decided to use the center row going down from the bingo card and I used bling, pattern paper, ribbon, twine and my doily was the freebie. I pulled out my old crimp-er thangy too. It's pretty cool I must say - haven't used it in a long time!

This month's sponsors...
Top Scribbler receives $10 worth of digital images, winner's choice 
Top 3 receives $3 worth of digital images
So, now it's your turn to come up with a wonderful take on an age old fav - BINGO!! Remember to follow 5 items in a row from the card above and boy oh boy, I can't wait to see it! Be sure you go to Scribble Designs Challenge blog and add your card to the linky. I'll see you there!

Kitty Bee Christmas part 1

Hello my friends! So glad you are here to hear about the brand new challenge for Kitty Bee Designs ~  Aloha Friday Challenges! The theme is just perfect for this time of year, can you guess?? It's Christmas! yeppie
 

I decided to create a card that was just a little more special as it's just a wonderful time of the year - it's a double wiper card! I used this tutorial I found here. I simply adjusted to have two wipers. It's much easier than it looks, I promise. I adore these two little giraffe images from Kitty Bee Designs! BTW - if you are in the Etsy shop and don't see the image you'd love and have seen before, just let KBD know via a message thru Etsy shop.


My pattern papers are from SU, the ribbons are from Joann Fabrics and the white cardstock is Neenah. So, now it's your turn to add your Christmas inspired creation to the challenge - get your supplies out, get craftin' and I'll see you on the Aloha Friday Challenges page!

I hope you and yours all have a wonderful, safe holiday filled with love, happiness and joy!

Thankful thru the miles

Hello again KBD fans! I'm here again to share my latest cards. These are for the challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenges. I already showed you my little honey bear perfect pair and today I have these little bears to share...


I used Stitchy Bear digis for both cards. I added some fresh fall patterned papers, a little bit of ribbon, some Copic ink and there you have it. Two wonderful "thankful" cards to send out to my family to help celebrate Thanksgiving even though we are all so far apart.


If you add your "perfect pair" project to our linky, you could be chosen to win the wonderful prize being offered by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet! So, go on and make a project or two and head over to Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenges! See you there...

My perfect pair

As a child I collected 3 things: teddy bears, clowns and dragons. I was always drawn to the pitiful little bears that were missing an eye, an arm or just looked like they needed my love more than the others sitting around him. Silly, but I still find myself still drawn to the underdog animal. And I still collect bears, dragons and have added sea turtles over the years.

Today I wan to share this little card. I created it for the challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenges. How much more of a perfect pair can you possibly get than the love a bear has for honey?!


 I used gray cardstock for the base adding some gray ink splats using a Stampin' Up set. I added few strips of coordinating ribbon I purchased at Walmart & Joann Fabrics. I really love this burlap ribbon, I picked up two different widths!

So, you really should pull out all your supplies and pull together a great card show casing your take on "perfect pairs." If you add your project to our linky, you could be chosen to win the wonderful prize being offered by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet! Be sure to go on over to  Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenges to read up on all the details! See you there...

A little fancy foldin'

Hi again my friends!!

We have a really fun challenge going on at Scribbles Designs right now. It's time to reach into your bag of tricks and pull out some old school fancy folding or special shapes.

 
Images I've used: Too Moose, Foxy 2, Acorn , Little Tree 2, Owl
 
I decided to do a double diamond fold. I used a standard 8.5 x 11' piece of cardstock. PLEASE note, I am not an architect, so my drawing is not to scale. Please follow the numerical measurements cuz they are correct! Here's a drawing of my score lines:

 
You can look at my card to figure out how to fold it, or check out You Tube. I reworked the measurements to be able to use a standard psc of cardstock instead of having to use a 12x12 psc and wasting tons of paper. =)
 
This month's sponsors...
Top Scribbler receives $10 worth of digital images, winner's choice 
Top 3 receives $3 worth of digital images

Now, after you've decided on which fancy fold or special shape you are going to create - head on over to Scribble Designs Challenge blog and add your card to the linky. I look forward to seeing your super fun creation!

Oh So Suzy!

Oh so happy -

I've been working on a few very special projects  this month and I can finally share the exciting news with you!

Squeeee - I'm over at So Suzy Stamps Blog today as a guest DT! I'm a big fan of all the great products she offers in her store here. There are stamps with matching SVGs, embellishments, sentiments and recently she has started offering classes, stamp clubs and COPICs!!

So Suzy's blog hosts wonderful monthly challenges and this month, she's asked for some super scary goodness - Halloween inspired projects. If you hurry, you still have a bit of time to add your creation to the linky...

Image used:  T-Rex

My little T-Rex is actually gray with purple spots, but sadly on this background he is kinda washed out a wee bit. This card is actually made using an acetate front. I added the grass, tombstones and sentiment to the front. And Rex, the tree, and the moon are all inside the card. I used my Copics to color the images and distress inks to color the background. The rolling clouds of fog are a bit hard to see, but they are there making the night perfectly spooky for trick or treating! And by the looks of his pumpkin basket, he's already hits some houses!

 Images used: Missing Person

For second card I decided to use this super fun "missing person" stamp. Thought I'd make a zombie hand colored with my Copics. I tried a new to me tech using tiny dots to create a great background. It was really fun to use and I'm sure I'll try it again.

 Image Used: Black Cats Prowl

My third card - I simply couldn't stop making Halloween cards with So Suzy Stamps goodies!! Anyhoo, I used this wicked sentiment paired with an image I cute with my Cricut. Clean and simple but striking I think...

Images used: Weird Stalker

Finally, my last card. My son is really big into Zombies so it goes in my life. So finally, I wanted to use this great sentiment to show just how versatile all of Suzy's stamps can be. I used some great papers and ribbon, and I used my Copics to add color to my sweet little Zombie girl.

Please be sure to stop over at So Suzy Stamps to see all of her GREAT products and check out her blog too as there are always wonderfully creative DT and Guest DT projects to keep you active and smiling!

Pass the pepper please...

Oooo - it's my absolutely, mostest, favoritest time of the year! (My English teacher sister will absolutilest hate that sentence!) And because it's my fav holiday, I ended up crafting two cards! When I saw these two little KBD kitties I just had to feature them for my "stand-in" DT spotlight. They are all dressed up and ready to head out to trick or treat.


AND, this is my 2nd card for this post. I used another  KBD image. I used my Copics to ink up all my digis. Added some great holiday papers, ribbons and embellishments and fell in love!


The current challenge over on the Kitty Bee Design Blog - Aloha Friday Challenges - is Halloween! Eeeek, its just perfect for me! You need to go over and check out the DT inspiration, entries and the wonderful challenge sponsor, The Paper Shelter.  I do hope you will head over and add your card to the linky! See you there!

Got Trick or Treats?

I do!

Today I am bringing you a new Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenges. My fav theme: Halloween!!  I made a really cute Origami treat bag, shaped like a paper lunch bag. I will admit I fiddled with this bag sooooo much, just couldn't get the size I really needed with the 1st (or 3rd) try!



I used velum to make the bag and the embossing was actually an afterthought. I used an image from The Paper Shelter. Love those little images. You really should play along so you can WIN some great images from this store!! Go here (Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenges) to add your project to the linky and keep your fingers crossed. The theme is super fun: Halloween which is perfect for this time of year. I hope to see you there.
 
Happy Halloween Everyone

Sew proud of you


When I was young, my Grannie made clothes for us, my mom did as well. You know, my daughter actually wore some of the clothes that had been made for me or my sisters! So it was natural for me to fall in love with sewing. I took every sewing related class while in High School and still am a very active seamstress to this day. I knew I had to find a way to use this most adorable Kitty Bee Design in a challenge. This challenge gave me just that chance!

Okay, Kitty Bee Designs is the home of Aloha Friday Challenges and our current challenge is all about animals. You can see how I interpreted this, I'd really love to see your interpretation!  Our uber cool sponsor this period is Bugaboo! They are graciously providing us with a super great prize!

 
I know you are heading over to the Aloha Friday Challenges page to add your project now, aren't you?! See you there!

Just a little crafty

Hello friends!

Oh so lucky me

Howdy All! We are midway thru our current challenge  at Scribbles Design Team! You still have plenty of time to whip out a wonderful creation to enter in the challenge!! Don't forget the current challenge is all about luck.

 
Before you jump to say "well Peggie Sue, that's not a very detailed card there hon" - lemme 'splain a little 'sumpin to ya... I have only just stepped into the world of the Digi (April of this year) I must admit, at 1st I thought "so what's the big deal?" I figured I'd really NEED my rubber stamps to hold and squeeze and love and tuck in at night. Well, 1500 images later - I'm so hooked.
 
But I can still hear you still asking "what's so special about this card??" It's cuz I printed the images directly onto the card base itself!! Before now I had to print then die cut or fussy cut the image out. I was frustrated I couldn't make a single layer card if I wanted to. BUT, using PowerPoint I was able to use the grid and then place my images to print on a 4.25 x 5.5 card base! Go me - Go me - (lol)

This month's sponsors...

Top Scribbler receives $10 worth of digital images, winner's choice 
Top 3 receives $3 worth of digital images


Donating: 7 digital images, winners choice
 
Now, after you stop laughing at me and my silliness, I just know you are heading over to the Scribbles Designs Challenges page to add your project now, aren't you?! See you there!

I was working in the lab late one night,

"When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise......"

I'mmmmm back! Gonna share this adorable Halloween KBD image with you. I used my Copics to ink up this little bat, BUT,  I couldn't have Frankenbatt be all alone in the night, now could I? So I found an uninhabited, yet haunted, mansion sitting on a little hill, already conveniently lite by a low moon. And now, I'm stratified that my little Frankenbatt will have a most wonderful home to live in.


So now I'm sure you would love to know about the current challenge over at Kitty Bee Design Blog - Aloha Friday Challenges - it's all about the music! Just like the song "The Monster Mash" helped me get in the mood for this card, I just know you can come up with a great song to help you! You can also head over check out all the great DT inspiration, other entries and the wonderful challenge sponsor, Kenny K.  I do hope you will head over and add your card to the linky! See you there!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs to you ~
