Another Sugar Nellie Challenge!

I had this card done and mailed out over a week ago because it was for a Halloween Birthday. I haven’t supplied the deets for this card yet because unfortunately I have been under the weather for weeks now and just can’t seem to kick it. Anyhoo, I do want to try to participate in a few challenges and I just love the Sugar Bowl Challenge. All of the deets for this card are written down for me to add later, but I did use Stampin Up Cardstock, K & Co DP and Copics for coloring.I hope to participate in more challenges soon since I have a nice collection of Hanglars going on along with my Maggies but I just don’t feel like I have the ability to compete out there. I feel like a wee one with all of that talent floating around~smile~
I hope you enjoy my card…the 10 year old boy who got it loved it:-)

My Sugar Nellie’s Came Today!

I have been waiting for my order to complete my card for Challenge #45  at the Sugar Bowl and when it finally came today I fell in love with this stamp!!

I had ordered the whole set of Sassy Girls figuring that I would definitely use one of those….waiting on pins and needles when they come on the very last day of the challenge, right, but I really had to use one of the stamps from this set since the theme was Autumn.


I guess I’ll use one of my girls next go round. Here is my card, hope you like it.  I will be back later with all of the deets on it.  For now I have to go fix dinner.

House Mouse – Red-Orange-Yellow

Just a quick post today for a very quick card I made last night.

The House Mouse Challenge is Red-Orange-Yellow and I wanted to participate this time.

Then last night around 9pm I remembered I had to get my brother’s birthday card made for Monday….yikes! Yes, I knew it was his birthday but I have been sick with “Acute, nasty, bronchitis”. This was the doctor’s official diagnosis, lol, but I really do have to agree with him.

I put this card together way too fast, and it shows, and my brother is stuck with a mouse, with these colors and this layout so that I could enter 3 challenges with one card.  Sorry Chuckie)-:  Sure hope he likes mice.

The cardstock is Stampin Up Dusty Durango, the DP was in a little gift pack so I don’t know but sure wish I had more. Colored with copics E00, E33, E35, E37, R20, C8, Y15, Y18, YR15, YR18, YG63 and multiple spicas. The ribbon is just from my stash and the bling is from K & Co.

The challenges I would like to enter this card in are:

House Mouse & Friends Red-Orange-Yellow
CPS Card Sketches
Lexis Creations Yellow & Orange (looks like I missed out on this one)

I’ve never entered multiple challenges before so I hope I have done it right…if not somebody please let me know….I appreciate any and all help with my card making.

My First Easel Card & Vintage Too

My first easel card…yeah for me. I came across a blog candy that I wanted to enter and I had just over an hour to make this card, take pics and post.

Okay….I got my card entered so now I can edit this posting.  The blog candy is on Angie’s page where you had to make an easel card using brown and red.I tried to get decent pics but I was having a hard time with this for some reason.Anyhoo, these are the pics I decided to upload.  You know how you take 20 pictures and then narrow it down to just one or two views, LOL, I so hope I’m not the only one that does that.

This card was made with the Stampin Up Winter Post stamp set; Stampin Up cardstock-choc chip, ruby red and very vanilla.  I used close to cocoa ink along with a little choc chip and old olive.  It was all basic cuts except for the MS punch for the leaves with the flower (they were colored with copic G99).  I then just rolled the edges a little bit to give it an old time look.  Last I added three Basic Grey opaline perles to hold the card up.  The flower was from my flower box so I have no idea where it’s from.

That’s it for my first easel card….boy was that quick!!!  I hope you enjoyed this post.  Let me know what you think of my first easel.  I’m definitely open to any and all suggestions.

I would like to add this card to Bunny Zoe”s challenge where this month it is vintage!
