Down on the Farm

Hiya ya'll!

We have a fabulous new challenge at Creative Card Crew for you this fortnight.  The theme is Down on the Farm and we are being sponsored by the generous Scrapping Center who will be giving one lucky random winner a $15 gift certificate to pick up some must have crafty things.

I came across this adorable image called Egg-stra Special at Saturated Canary and thought she'd be perfect for this challenge.  Papers are from Maja Designs Life In the Country pack.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the blackberries are from Live and Love Crafts.  I used a ticket by Tim Holtz and wrote "you are egg-stra special" on it.  Stuck on a hanger paper clip, also by Tim Holtz, for whatever reason came across my mind at the time LOL, but I thought it looked rather cute. 

Hope you'll join us for the challenge this week!  Be sure to check out all the awesome inspiration from my teamies- such a wide variety that will be sure to get your farm creativity going.

Wishing everyone a fantastic week!

Butterflies at Stampin' for the Weekend

Hey everyone!

Hope you all have had a fantastic week.  It's been another busy one here.  Nick and Jordan left for Florida bright and early on Tuesday morning (don't you all just love getting up at 430 in the morning?), and I've been babysitting the 9- and 2- year olds all week.  Tomorrow is the last day... phew.

I'm popping in with my DT card for this fortnight's challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend.  We are being sponsored by one of my most fav digi artists- Krista at Saturated Canary, who so generously supplied us with images to work with.  The theme for this challenge is butterflies. 

I made a card for my sister, who is expecting her first baby; she is actually due two days before I am.  We've just recently found out that she is having a girl!  Yay for girls!  I'm so excited for her.

The image is called Butterfly Baby.  The gorgeous papers are from Maja Design.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the butterfly and butterfly paperclip are by Prima, as is the zipper with the baby heart charm.  I was so thrilled to finally be able to use my new butterfly edge die by Joy! Crafts.  Just love it.

Copics used:
Pink:  RV10/21/13
Purple:  V01/12/04
Skin:  E00/000, R20
Hair:  E53/43/47, Y26

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!

613 Avenue Create Challenge: use a school supply

Hey everyone!

I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by, and we are now down to the last lazy days of summer here.  I've enjoyed a few brief days with all my kids at home, but Jordan has been spending the weekend with her friend and then her and Nick are off to Florida to visit grandma for a week.  Two days later, it's back to school!  Wow, December and the new baby will be here before I know it.

This week at 613 Avenue Create, the optional twist is to use a school supply.  Our fantastic sponsor is Lacy Sunshine who has some of the most adorable digis- be sure to check them out if you haven't already!

I decided to make a back to school card for Jordan using Kenna Back to School.  She's a cutie for sure!

 I've used papers from her American Girl paper stack along with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.  The apples and white spray is from Live and Love Crafts.  For my school supply twist, I've used a flower paper clip by Maya Road as well as a page from her student planner with the day she goes back to school. 

I tried something different with her eyes.  Will have to play around with it a bit I think.  But not too bad for the first attempt :)

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Banner/pennant at Creative Card Crew

Hey everyone!

Popping in to share my DT card for Creative Card Crew's Banners/pennant challenge.  This week we are being sponsored by Stamp Fairy, who has some of the most absolutely adorable images!

Wishing you all a fantastic week!

Shape it up at Stampin' for the Weekend

Hi everyone!

Still working on getting my new craft area in order.  Can you believe I haven't even filled up my drawers or cabinets?  Such a great excuse to shop more LOL!

I hope this finds everyone doing well!  I can't believe it's Friday already- time sure flies.  And!  It's been two whole weeks since our last challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend!  The theme this fortnight is Shape It Up.  We want to see your cards in any shape EXCEPT square or rectangle.  Our fabulous sponsor is Rick St. Dennis.  You have two weeks to join in the fun- can't wait to see what everyone creates!

I chose to use Sandi... who I can't seem to find in his shop any longer, elsewise I'd link it up.  She just reminds me of Jordan playing dress up.  I used my Prismacolors to color her up, this is only the second time I've used them.  Going to have to play with them a lot more to get the hang of these, I think.  That reminds me though, I need to order some Gamsol (mental note inserted here).  The pink ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Pink roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, while the white gardenia in the center I made from my Cheery Lynn Gardenia Strip die.  The Hello and Friend sentiment dies are also from Cheery Lynn, as is the Rose Leaves and the other foliage.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
