I have one sweet little card to enter into two challenges. First challenge is OWH, mid-week throwdown and the second is Do you Stack Up.  I found this second challenge on Yolanda's blog. She has some awesome cards and ideas, go check out her blog and perhaps become a follower. :)

bugs and more bugs

I have a couple creepy bug forwarned, they ARE creepy, crawly bugs...probably not for the faint of heart!
Okay, they aren't THAT creepy, still they are bugs. I got the image from Boni, here. The sentiment about "my wife" is also from here. The shoe is a freebie I got, sorry can't remember whose other than I got it from here.

January 3rd

It's the first Monday of the year. What did you do today?
I made 4 cards so far. I ran out of adhesive so I had to make a trip to Hobby Lobby, only craft store in town. I promised myself, adhesive only....RIGHT! I did pretty good considering where I was at. Two packages of adhesive, 3 single sheets of cardstock, some Christmas ribbon and stickers at 80% off and the H/L scrapbooking magazine.  Not bad, actually very good. NOW had the boyfriend not been home, I'm sure I would have come home with much more. I really shouldn't be allowed to go in that store alone.  Oh, I forgot I got a Paper Creaser also.
So I'll share my cards I made today, all images came from CDAC. The have new challenges and free images every two weeks. If you miss the challenge/image you can always visit each individual store and pick up the image there.


Okay, well I don't like the lay out of this post, but it has taken me
three tries to just get these photos added. SO I'm leaving it as is.

Happy Crafting,

cupcakes and roses at D2D

Hi all,
I've got another image from Designed2Delight for this weeks challenge over there. If you haven't gone there yet and checked out their images and MUST! Very sweet images and it's always fun playing along.
Girly Birthday
The cupcake and roses were colored with copics. I added some, okay lots, of Glossy accents to the roses and the candle flame. The roses were calling for glitter, but I'm planning on passing the card on to OWH and it wouldn't be safe to have glitter going there. I added a couple buttons and ta da....done.

Challenges also entered with this card are;
Moving Along with the Times-Birthday and Circles
Crazy4challenges C4C68-Celebrate Something

OWH sketch #50

I volunteered to do a future sketch at OWH and was given that opportunity. Below is the card I made with the sketch I was given. The image is from here, she has so many cute images. I colored him with Copics and Primsacolor markers. The dp is from an old stash, not sure the company name. I add a bit of ribbon and a button. Hmmm, in retrospect maybe ribbon and bling isn't good for a boy card. I've learned a lot since I made this card. But I still like it, love the colors together. Below is the sketch I used and the completed card. Enjoy
