This card was made for OCCSC #30 sketch challenge and Color Create #52 to use pastels: Lilac, yellow and mint. I had this dp from Stampin'Up that was perfect! The image fit the sketch well. I love yellow roses, so that was a no-brainer! The coloring is with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. I used Nesties Ovals and scallop to cut and mat the image. I popped it up on spongs squares. The ribbon is Offray (isn't the match great!). The buttons are Basic Grey and the pearls are Recollections. The cs is also SU. The image is from my daughter's stash... I want to say Whipper Snapper, but I'm not sure. That's it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

This card was made for Friday Sketchers #117. I used a Whipper Snapper Design image and colored it with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. I cut the image out with a Nesties Oval. I used a Martha Stewart Border Punch wide to make the "trellis" look. The dp is from Karen Foster and the flowers are Prima and Recollection. The tan background paper is SU and the orange is DCWV. Very simple. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
I couldn't find my battery charger for my camera! I looked "everywhere", but it was not to be found. I even went to Best Buy to price their chargers... $42! So I came home and looked some more. I decided to check my husband's drawer, that he "had just looked in there." I scanned around the drawer, and low and behold! There it was. So I charged my battery, and now I'm displaying my cards that I finished last night.
This little card was made for two challenges: The Greeting Farm and Totally PaperCraft #31.
The Greeting Farm had a sketch to follow. This is what I came up with. I of course used a Greeting Farm image and colored it with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol, and cut it out with Nesties Oval and matted it on Nesties Oval Scallop. I used Basic Grey's LilyKate dp and SU cs. The yellow ribbon is from my stash and the pink is from Celebrat It. The buttons are Basic grey. The flower is Prima and the pearls are Kaiser Craft. I sponged around the image with yellow chalk.
The challenge for Totally Papercraft #31 was Plain and Simple. This is pretty plain and quite simple. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Second card of the night. I just finished this cute card for The Sugar Bowl's Sketch Challenge #42, Lilian's Sketch. Great sketch, Lilian! I turned the sketch so my image would fit. I used Sugar Nellie's Purrfect Playmates. this is the first time I've inked it up. I colored it with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol, cut it out with Nesties label and sponged the edge with chalk. I used Basic Grey's LilyKate paper and the cs is SU. The tiny 1/2 pearls are from The Paper Studio. I placed pearls on the "dots" of the MS border punch, and I also placed one on the center of the yoyo. A pretty simple card. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
Hi! It's Thursday evening, and a bit of thunder rumbling around. Rained earlier. Here is my take on Whiff of Joy's Sketch #86 by Jane. I've had this little pad of DCWV Nana's Nursery for boys for over 2 years, and was going to use it in a scrapbook. But I decided since I'm making cards and not scraping... why not use it?! I think it made a really pretty card. What do you think? I used my new Shopping Willow along with my new phrases, Fun in the Sun. I thought this one fit :-) . The image was colored with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol and totally cut out. I cut the circle with Nesties circle and scallop. Then I popped the image up on foam squares. The sentiment is popped up on smaller foam circles. The cs is DCWV. The flowers are Prima, and the ribbon is Offray. This was a fun sketch and a fun card to make. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
Well, it's already Thursday! Even not working the weeks fly by! I thought about this card a couple days and had it finished yesterday, but was in a funk, and didn't feel like doing much of anything. So, today it goes up! The challenge for this week's Belles n' Whistles was "anything goes". I love this image, but it's a bit large. It's hard to use with normal challenges. So I pulled it out and inked it up and colored it with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. I cut it out with my largest Nesties scallop rectangle. I then sponged around the image with chalk. The blue paper is embossed with Cuttlebug Swirls to look like clouds :-) and the green is from Making Memories. The flower(s) is the sun :-). The brad is from my stash. The 1/2 pearls are from Recollections. That's about it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'! Have a great rest of Thursday.

Hi, and happy Friday evening! I am uploading 3 cards tonight. I was a little slow on the down load for this card. I used last Friday's sketch for Friday Sketchers but didn't get it uploaded until tonite. Oh well...
This is House Mouse's challenge #76, to make a card using this photo as inspiration. It's too cute :-).
I didn't have a HM stamp with any kind of cupcake, so I picked this one up at our Hobby Lobby this week. It's Make a Wish 02 with Amanda and Monica. I colored it with Copics and cut it out with Nesties rectangles. The flowers are Prima and the cs is SU. The dp is from my stash. I sponged around the edge of the image with chalk. The button and rhinestone are from my stash. The ribbon is Offray. That's about it! Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

This card was made for the following sketch for Sunday's CPS sketch challenge, 180 part 1. When I looked at this sketch, I couldn't quite figure out what to do with it. But when I looked at the DT's fabulous samples, I knew what I wanted to do!
I just felt like doing a fall card, and this image from Stampin'Up was just the right size for the challenge sketch and perfect for a fall card. I haven't used this paper before although I've had it awhile. It is by Karen Foster Design. I just picked up these flowers Sunday afternoon at Michael's 4 hour 25% off your entire purchase sale. And two of the ribbons. The Flowers are Recollections and Prima. The ribbons are Michael's and Offray. The cs is DCWV. I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol and sponged around tht image with chalk. That stark white just didn't cut it! I cut the image with Nesties circle and scallop.
That's about it. Thanks for lookin'!

I made this door hanger for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge. It's the first time I've made one. It was really kinda fun! I used this sweet image of Melinda with flowers. I colored her with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol to match the dp (from my stash). The image is cut with Nesties Label 2. The ribbon is from my stash. The flowers are Prima and the 1/2 pearls are Kaiser Craft. The cs is from my stash. I sponged around the edge of the image with chalk. Simple and sweet! Thanks for lookin'!

Hi! Saturday is almost over, but I wanted to get this card posted. I made this card for three challenges: Penny Black #114, Feeling Fruity. I don't have any PB stamps with fruit on them, so I colored the frosting strawberry :-); Basic Grey #26 to use pearls. I used red Kaisercraft 1/2 pearls on the corners of the image and also on the little strip on the left side, top and bottom; I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday #116. I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol and cut it out with Nesties rectangles scallop and mounted it on the next size up rectangle. I used Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry paper and SU green cs and DCWV red cs. I think that's it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

This seems to be one of the most used Sugar Nellie stamps by Elisabeth Bell. I've seen her on many cards. I finally ordered her and this is the first time I've inked her up (new). This card is made using a sketch by Marleni and an optional theme to use something old or something new. I ended up using something of both. I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. I cut it out with Nesties circle. I used a Nesties flower to mount the image with. I separated the dp (Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry) with a white Offray ribbon. I used tiny 1/2 pearls from my stash on various points of the "flower". I used Prima flowers and nested red, white and red, with a white 1/2 pearl in the center (from my stash). The red paper is DCWV (I've had it quite awhile... old).

This card was made for my bestest friend (my bff) Jill, who lives in Colorado. I just love all of Elisabeth's B&W stamps! I'm gathering a collection :-) .This challenge for B&W was to use shades of purple. I also used A Spoonful of Sugar's sketch #29, Flati's sketch. The dp is BasicGrey, the cs is SU. The image is colored with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol. The flowers are Prima. The ribbon is Offray. The rhinestones are KaiserCraft. I stitched the larger pieces together then stitched the two other dps to the cs. I used a purple pencil to shade around the edge of the image cute with Nesties label. The image and flowers are popped out on foam squares.
That's it (I think). Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
