It isn't what they Say about you, - Aud Sentiments #165

Thursday September 29 - October 11, 2016
 
 
I am now retired... I am so excited and so glad I don't have to go to work each day. I can be home with my hubby and 4 legged girl..
I will have more time to craft and get back into quilting and fun things that work didn't give me time to do..
 
 
It's time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments # 165..
'
The theme is Anything goes + a sentiment
 
 

This is my card and I used an image from The Greeting Farm.. I have quite a few of  their images and I love when our DT lets us use what we have/want... So I chose to use this little girl called Monday.
I found this sentiment from Club scrap and thought it fit her attitude she is displaying.
I hope you find time to play along..

Wednesday September 28, 2016
 
This is the second card for the Guest designer spot at Crop Stop challenge #20 where it's ANYTHING GOES.. Thank you for having me for the month and it's been fun creating my card to share.
 

This is a fun card. I loved coloring the ladies and bringing them to life. These are some of the products that Crop Stop carries.  Art Impressions ladies and sentiment, Petaloo flower, bazzil brown paper, Memento ink and Spellbinder die. The other paper is DCWV and Sakura gelly pen I don't know where the pearl brad came from I've had it for years..
I used my copics to color the fancy ladies and the dots on the green dress is the 0 copics and the white dots on the blue dress and bracelet are from the gelly pen. I am loving this card. I always have loved the Art Impressions images and sentiments. I hope you head over to Crop Stop and play along.

Wow end of September.. I only have one more month to work and then it's retire time.. I am so ready and looking forward to a relaxed, fun, exciting new chapter in my life.
 
Well today is another challenge at
 
It's always ANYTHING GOES.. SO grab those anything projects and play along
 

Our sponsor for this card is Aurora Wings
 

This is my card using Whimsical ladybug sprite.. I love ladybugs and so this was a first choice when I saw what we could use.. I added a die cut behind as I thought it went well with the ladybug feel. I added a die cut tag with the sentiment and some black ribbon and my cloud template. I kept the card simple as the image spoke volumes.

Many miles apart..... Guest Designer at Crop Stop

Wednesday September 21, 2016
 
I am the guest designer at Crop Stop Challenge #20 and the theme is ANYTHING GOES
Thank you Crop Stop for having me for the month of September. It's been fun creating a card for this challenge.
 

This is my card using a lot of the products that Crop Stop carries. I used the Clovis house die, My favorite things sentiment, Cuttlebug embossing folder and Ranger inks... I also used Simon Says heart dies, and Taylored Expressions fence. The papers are scraps and my cloud template.
This was a fun card creating a little neighborhood scene. These houses are just too cute. I added the little hearts to go with the sentiment. I embossed the back green hill to give texture and more interest. I would love to live in this neighborhood--- if the houses weren't so close.. Living in the country I love the wide open spaces.. But I love this card.
I am sure you have some products that Crop Stop carries so I hope you play along with the challenge. Thank you Crop Stop.

This is my card using the image called Time is running out.  That is why I chose this sentiment from Tech. Tuesday. It went perfect with the image.

Live your life in Color - Inspiration Destination #104

Wednesday September 21, 2016
 
Welcome to another challenge week at Inspiration Destination.. This is challenge #104 and as always it's ANYTHING GOES
 

Our sponsor for this card is Karleigh Sue
 

 
This cat is called El Gato Dia Des Les Muertos..I guess it's best it's not a dog cause I don't know how I would call a dog with that long name.. I don't have a cat.. do you call cats in or do they just come in when they are good and ready..
I wasn't sure how to color this cutie but started with a light warm gray.. then did the other colors and when it was done I wasn't liking the lighter gray so I went two warm grays up and I like it better. I have this awesome sentiment that went perfect with the image from Reverse Confetti.. I used the color letters from a die from Lil Inker.. colored them with copics.. I also added liquid pearls to the dots.. gives a nice look in person.. I also used two colors when I stamped the sentiment I used blue then just a little offset I added green.  I felt I needed to add more but wasn't sure what.. There is so much going on with the cat that adding sequins or flowers or??? would of been too much.. What do you think?
 
I hope you play along at Inspiration Destination.. it's ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES

Sunday September 18, 2016
 
It's time for a new sketch challenge at Catch the bug SSS #414
 

Below is the sketch for you to follow. You can turn the sketch if it fits your idea better.
 

This is my card using the images Dog Block #3-4-5 and 6.. I colored each dog different and gave them spots. The are so quirky I love the looks on their faces. I used some dog paper from Basic Grey and some twine and a button to carry over the teal.  The sentiment is from a company that I used to buy a lot of their stamps from many many years ago.. Rubber baby buggy bumpers.. Are they even around anymore???
