Green and Grey Hum!

Just as in the title Green and Grey was the inspiration for this card.  This card was created for two Challenges 1 was a sketch and the other was to create with Green and Grey.  This is the card I designed to fit both Challenges:

The stamped image I have had for a long time there was no name or information on the stamp.  I think I bought it at a Big Lots or Dollar Tree, I colored with Copics.  The papers I used are Deja Views-Wedding and Heidi Grace Jolly and Bright. The tag is from K & Company-Yuletime.  The green and grey combo was the hard part, for Cute Card Thursday #191.  The sketch part was kind of easier for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #130 the choice was mine...

This card was a Challenge, I gave it my best shot.  I did have a good time designing this card.
Thank you for stopping by.

Tumble Wrealth

Good Evening, I have been busy working on Christmas Cards.  I have finally found some time to play and make Cards.  Thanks to challenges it gives me the extra boost to work on cards.  So this time I am entering in Three challenges with this card:
 Sketch N Stash #74  a sketch challenge with a twist must use something new or neglected.  Mine are the background papers.  I have had them for over a year.  Here is the sketch 

Digital Tuesday Challenge #137  Christmas Time but must have something digital on the card.  I used Merry Christmas it was computer generated.

Creatalicious Challenge #28 Christmas and make it Sprarkle, I tried my hand at this challenge.

I colored the House Mouse Tumble Wreath with Copics and Touch Markers.  These markers work great together, the Touch Markers have a stiffer nib than the Copics. 
The bg papers are form Memory Box Mistletoe and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
The stars and frame for image were cut out with the cricut. 
Thank you for stopping by and I love comments.

Cuddly and Warm

I enjoy coloring Amanda & Muzzy in  "Cuddly and Warm"  from House Mouse, I used Copics and Touch Markers.  I also flocked their hats and the snow, the first time I tried flocking.  The BG papers are from Creative Memories and DCWV Christmas Combo.  The lace and ribbon is from my stash. I used the Cuttlebug with Spellbinder Label 8 to cut out the image.  Here is a closing look at the stamped image:
This week while I was blog surfing I found a wonderful Sketch Challenge.  The sketches are done by a 13 year old girl, they are wonderful, I had to give it a try.  You can find this challenge at Sketches by Carly #44.

Flowers with the Cricut.

As i mentioned in the last post I have a cricut. I have been having a great time learning and trying new things. I made these flowers using Flower Shoppe Cartridge. I also purchased the Gypsy to go with the cricut. I love the Gypsy you can edit the original design kind of and save all your work for later uses. I don't know what took me so long to give these tools a try. I am in love. Below is a closeup view of the little rose...
These little flowers were very easy and fun to make. I am off to try something else with the cricut. Thank you for dropping in please take a second to leave a comment.

HoneyPop Collection and Cricut!!

I have been very busy this summer as most of you are also. I have been gone camping and playing. But I did purchase a Cricut so I hope to have a post soon with something I used the cricut to make. So far I have been trying it out and I am waiting for the Gypsy to be returned. I purchased a Gypsy and after talking with help desk we realized the Gypsy did not work, so I returned to Provo Craft and waiting patiently for it. I have been playing in the cricut craft room, a free download to redesign the designs on the cartridges that you own. Check out the link.
Hoping I will have more time to blog and visit other blogs. I have really been enjoying all the beautiful work of art everybody has been creating. My creating juices are flowing.
I have also have been playing with HoneyPop Collection by Inky Antics. This card was made with the stamps and honey comb paper from the collection.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek. Check me out again soon to see what is happening new.
