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:-)

p.s. be sure to check out the Sugar Nellie blog where they have all kinds of new releases going on!!! I just can’t wait to get my itchy fingers on the new Simply Adorable stamps!


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.



Bellaholic Sketch Challenge #1

What a glorious weekend it has been here in Michigan.  The weather has been absolutely perfect and I can’t believe this…I saw gas for $2.75 a gallon today!  Wow!

Okay, on to more important things like cards.  I actually got to make a couple of cards and I though I would share them.  For some reason my camera is not taking very good pictures right now.  It has to be my camera because there is no way it can be me right~hehe~  Anyway, I tried my best with the camera and this is what I finally gave up with

This is my take on the Bellaholic Sketch Challenge #1 designed by Sarah Anderson.  Her design was great and excellent to follow.

My very first Sarah Kay card.  Ooh I love these images.  I received a few in a swap and I have been afraid to color them.  If I make a mistake I can’t just stamp out another one and try again…that’s the biggest problem with swaps and you only have 2 of the images you swapped, don’t you think?  Or am I the only chicken out there?

Yes, I have still been on a Halloween kick, but aren’t these too cute.

I was working on a couple of other challenges that needed to be posted by tonight.  Obviously so far they aren’t done but it’s only 9:30 so who knows what could happen.  I hope everyone else has had a great weekend with time to craft and wonderful weather just like I had.  I had 2 friends (actually cousins) come over yesterday and make cards all day.  It was quite fun and I hope we can do it again some time soon.  The only problem in a group is I like to watch what everyone else is doing and it gives me a great excuse to not do anything myself.  Ta-ta for now!

blog candy

Blog Candy Alert!!!

I have come across a new blog for Karin http://karinhoeve.blogspot.com/ where she is having birthday card and Christmas card challenges.  It sounds like great fun to me, even though I never get in on challenges.  I’m hoping it will motivate me to have some cards on hand when I need them.  Here is the sketch for her first card challenge and her take on it.  She will be posting her sketch on Mondays and if you enter twice in a month your name will go into a drawing for a small prize.  I hope some of you will join me and also decide to participate in her challenge.

Right now Karin is also holding a blog candy until Monday, October 13 for a wonderful WoJ holiday stamp along with embellishments and paper.  Good luck to all…but I hope to win ~smile~.

Well, these are the best I could do with pics of this card.  The pictures aren’t so great but I did try (it is almost 3:00 am too so maybe that’s part of the problem).  The card looks much better in person, which is why I took 2 pictures trying to show you all of the colors of polka dots on the DP.  Very cool paper…
