Beccy's "little" family

Today I have for you three of the Little family over at Beccy's! If you have been not been to her blog, you must go there! She is a very, very talented lady that is generous with her talent. I just love her images.  Beccy if you see this post, forgive my coloring of your images. :)

Meljen's challenge 46

Meljen's new challenge is to make a Birthday card. I made mine with her Holiday Bird image and her "it's a party" sentiment. I used red, white, and blue for the colors. It just evolved that way, once I decided on my bird color. I knew I wanted the star in the birds mouth to be different from typical yellow (typical for me). SO this is a birthday party, but it also can be used as a 4th of July card! It can also be consider a masculine card as there really isn't too much embellishments on it.

You're quite a catch

Hambo Pelican....what an interesting image. At first I didn't quite know how I was going to color/play with this image. However after reading what the Hambo challenge was all about, it all came together! :) Don't ya love it when that happens. Have you started participating in their weekly challenges? You should go check it out, lots of fun images....participate and you get a new one next week for FREE!
Here is my card;

I apologize for the poor photo on this card, it's early here and not light enough outside for a good shot. I bought the sand background paper just for this card. The white, beach paper I already had. I saw the sentiment on a store greeting card so I CASE'd that!


This will also be entered in the OWH mid week throwdown-masculine card and in Dudetimedoodle challenge, masculine with certain colors. hmm I have most here.

Two D2D images

Today, I have two images from Faith at D2D. The first image is Kaela and her bouquet, called  Kaela's Spring Bouquet. If you follow D2D weekly progressive challenge then you got the bouquet for free and an option to buy Kaela for $1...what a wonderful deal. I love blue and yellow together, so Kaela's dress is just that. See if you like;
  
The second image is Love you Sew Much.  Pink and green, yummy together. I used a Copic for the swirls (with a template)...don't do that, it bleeds through and I should have known that...but I think I fixed it pretty good by going over it with a Zig in a darker green. The edges look a bit sharper. Lesson learned! :) And isn't that just what be creative is all about, learning what you like and don't and how to get it!?

Hambo Eye monster challenge and others





WOW it has been a few days since I posted anything. So unlike me! But the "man" has been home for two weeks, so my crafting time has been cut....drastically! :(
I have a few challenges to list here in this post, so bare with me if it gets to be a long one.
First up, HamboHoedown2; I'm sure you have seen this little monster on a few cards, here is my version. I will be entering him in the OWH midweek challenge from last week! Yikes, I am behind!


Another challenge is this weeks OWH sketch #56 challenge, YAY, I'm more on time with this one. I used an image I got from CDAC for their embellishment challenge.
