Happiest of Happy Turkey Day to You!

Well hello and thank you for taking the time to waddle over to your computer after a HUGE turkey meal to take a peek at my little card! I do hope your celebration, big or small, has been one filled with happiness and love!

 
Isn't this little guy just the cutest thing?? He's one of the many wonderful KBD images. I colored this little guy with my Copics. I added some great patterned papers from my still too large stash, ribbon and bling and there he was.... all ready late for the football games cuz he had to clean up the kitchen 1st!

The current challenge over on the Kitty Bee Design Blog - Aloha Friday Challenges - is all about being thankful! And its just perfect for me, especially for today! You should to go over and check out the DT inspiration, entries and the wonderful challenge sponsor, All Dressed Up.  I do hope you will head over and add your card to the linky! See you there!

Happiest of Happy Turkey Days to you and yours!

Scribblin' Up a Little Christmas

Ho - Ho - Ho-wdy!

UGH - I've gotta stop doing that, cuz this one, this one is really bad! LOL But I really wanna share the great challenge going on at Scribbles Designs. We are focusing on non-traditional Christmas colors and have I got a wownderful color combo for you!!

 
Images I've used: Snow Kisses
 
I would've never thought of varying shades of blues and purples together, but it worked out great I think. The absolutely wonderful pattern paper I've used is from Bo Bunny, the ribbon is from Joann Fabrics and the paper is from Office Maxx and Michaels. And like usual, my inks are Copic.
 
This month's sponsors...
Top Scribbler receives $10 worth of digital images, winner's choice

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...
Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles & Hugs!
