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!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs to you ~

*Not* 2 Cute *for* Ink

Okay - maybe that's a bad play on words, but it's what I've been playing with lately. All these adorable images over at 2 Cute Ink. I've added some of my cards to the monthly challenges and some for my daughter's upcoming 20th -day.


I made this card for Em and colored the little kitten to look like her little Chemmies kitty. She turns 20 on the 25th. My 1st born and all I keep thinking is "where'd the time go?!"

 
 I put this card in for the monthly fall themed challenge.


This cute little chubby mermaid is a special digi for being part of the 2 Cute Ink Digi Club. Click on over to get all the deets and this cute club member only digi for freeee! Head over and check it out. The price is fabulous and the benefits many and great! Hope to 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

Spook-tacular

Hello -

I've missed you guys. I've had to take a break from "live" posts due to health, but I'm feeling much better now and will get back to posting more "live" and less just scheduled projects. I wanted to share you with a really cute card for Halloween using a Scribbles Designs image.

Image used: Cauldron

The papers are a mix of digi papers, Neenah and SU. The sentiment is from Craft Secrets, ribbon from SU.

Hope you are getting ready for all the trick or treaters!! I've been very busy the past few days coloring and creating, I'll be posting my creations over the next few days. Hope you are having a GREAT Thursday!!

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Halloween Treat Holder

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. I've been looking for treat holders to had out to family, friends and my son's classmates for Halloween and the rest of the upcoming holidays.

Thank you for being so understanding. ***

Just a little crafty

Hello friends!

I have just finished another Christmas card that I think may just be my fav so far this year. And, I have Angie from Chic n Scratch to thank for it! Here's the original card she made for her trip to convention.


I changed a few things for the card, but only because I don't have all the same products she used. I seriously love this card - thanks Angie!! =) Head over to her blog, she's always got such cute cards and projects! btw: al products here but the cardstock are Stampin Up.

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!
