Victorian Beauties

I am trying to diversify my creative field...branching out you may say...
and make some ornaments!
When I saw these little beauties from Scrapper's Delights I knew I had to have them...
and have them I Blue, Red and Greeen!!!!
What I am showing you today is the blue ladies.

These kits come as regular sized and as tagger...
I used the tagger, shrunk them down a bit,
added my drop shadow and put them right on a bulb I had in my digi stash.
I added some clear star for the twinkles and on the bulb tops,
cut them out and backed them on dark blue card stock,
then added the stretchy silver ribbon for the hanger.

Here is a close up of the images:

Now for some other news..................
Scrapper's Delights is having a DT call for the creative team!!

It's Another Fabulous Freebie Friday!

This week we have another fabulous image BUT
she is only available for 24 hours, so you better hurry!

This weeks challenge theme is Give Thanks!
What are you thankful for?
Well, for all that I wonderful husband,
fantastic kids (for the most part), and any day I wake up with out a headache! LOL
Here is the card I made:

I kept it pretty simple...wanting the image to stand out...
the paper came from one of my Taylored Expressions kits...last October I believe!
the ribbon was from a roll I bought about 5 years ago
and the inside sentiment and leaf is from TLC...I just added them together.
I colored the image with copics.

Can't wait to see what wonderful creations you come up with!

Christmas Challenge with a Wreath Twist!

This year has gone by so fast and what a year it has been!
This will be the last Guylou's Inimitability challenge for 2011!
 But we will be back and raring to go in 2012.
On December 3rd we will be having a blog hop!

It's my turn to host the challenge
I figured that since the lovely Sara picked Thanksgiving and a turkey twist....
I would choose Christmas with a wreath twist!
If any of you are anything like me, you are way behind on
your Christmas card list....(when you see my project you are going to laugh at that)
So this challenge will most definitely help you out!
Now I started out knowing what images I was going to use,
got my paper and stuff together and made my base card...
when it got time to add my images...I did not like it....soooo

I turned it into an ornament!

My step-son just got a puppy and I think I may give this to him!
I used "Sundae and Her Bone" along with one of GI's wreaths.
You can't tell in the picture but I popped parts of the wreath up to give some dimension.
I will tell you it was a lot of coloring to make two wreaths.

You have until 10:00pm on December 1st to link your project to the InLinkz on the challenge blog. Please make sure your project matches the requirements before you link it. One entry per participant.

Guylou is offering a $10.00 gift certificate from her online store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on one of our challenges in 2012. You can enter only one project, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries. If you don't have one of her digistamps and your budget is tight; please check her online store where several freebies are available.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Roxann
Roxann was the winner of our recent "Breast Cancer Awareness" Challenge and was invited to join us this week. She used "Roger and Leah - Christmas 1" to make her festive and beautiful card. We are very happy to have Roxann playing along with us! Thanks Roxann!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

2 posts!

I have 2 new posts
One for Guylou's Inimitability Challenge
One for the Fabulous Freebie Friday!
Make sure you check out both posts!

"What's Cooking!"

It's time for the next challenge at CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge!
This time the theme is "What's Cooking"
I got to use the cute "Bailey With Honey" image from Sew Many Cards!

Because I am in a harvesty mood I went with more fall colors...
even though this is actually a b-day card!

I colored the image with copics, added some flowers from Oriental Trading Co,
paper from my October Taylored Expression kit,
brads from my stash, and cut up leaves from my Martha Stewart punch!
Here is a close up and a picture of the inside. The sentiment is also part of the freebies this challenge!

I hope you have fun and cannot wait to see what creations you come up with!
See you on the flip side!

but we are finally starting a new week!

I have been working on a few Christmas projects using
I decided to take two of the poses and sit themon ornaments...
Here is what they came out like:

They are both completely digital (except for the snowflakes on the card and the stars on the pixies).
I used copics to color in the skin and stickles for the stars but used PSP for the rest.
Scrapper's Delights is having a new Christmas Challenge!

Also check out the store because Janice always
has freebies and massively fantastic sales!
I must apologize for being so far behind this month!

And what better way to present a bottle than it having a one of a kind tag!
On the back I can add a label with name and/or a nice sentiment.

The picture did not come out as nice as I wanted it to!
