Sketch Saturday #337

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Well, yesterday turned out even nice than I thought!  It was in the mid 60s and sunny all day! It was nice Fall day and very welcome after the chilly days all week.  We'll see how today turns out.  Right now, I am here with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps who are offering the lucky winner 7 digis of their choice from the Bugaboo Stamps shop!


Here is this week's sketch, designed by Debra:
And here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Festivus 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Snowglobe Ava from Bugaboo Stamps.  I colored it with my Copics and then added sparkly glitter to the snow, the trim on her hat and the baubles on the tree.  The sentiment is part of the digi stamp.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  The weather has improved dramatically here and we are back into the 60s, at least during the day.  It's still cold at night, but that's OK.  We may even get some much-needed rain on Sunday, which is fine as long as it doesn't come with the severe thunderstorms that are predicted. Anyway, I've got a busy day so I will get on with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the overall color palette on your project.  And don't forget, you can use any coloring medium you'd like as long as you have a hand-colored image.

Here is the color inspiration photo, courtesy of Design Seeds:


And here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Lost Lagoon and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste "Charm" 6x6 pad.  The image is Aurora Daisy from The East Wind, our sponsor for November.  The DT was generously provided with a digi to use and this is the one I chose.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few opaque gems is aqua and deep purple finished my card.

Little Miss Muffet Challenge #99

Good morning!  Happy Thursday!  Hope you've had a good week so far!  Other than being very busy and it being pretty chilly here, my week has gone pretty smoothly.  I've got a lot to do today, but before getting on with that, I am here with my DT post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  We have a brand new challenge for you today.  The theme is "clean and simple".  Sometimes CAS is harder for me than lots of layers where I can use my patterned papers, but I did my best to keep it true CAS.

Here is my card:
 

I printed the adorable Swings 'n Slides Little Miss Christmas on heavy white coloring cardstock and colored her with my Copics.  I also printed the sentiment directly on the card.  It is from Whimsy Stamps and was generously provided as a freebie recently in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration Facebook group.   A bit of doodling around the border and that was it!  I rarely do CAS, but this was kind of fun!

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet blog and check out the fabulous CAS creations from the rest of the Little Misses and our wonderful November Guest Designer, Paola!  We hope you will play along!  You have until Tuesday, December 2 to enter the challenge.

Elphine House Australia Challenge #64

Hi again!  I'm back with a second post for today, although that's because it's already tomorrow in Brisbane, Australia and it's time for another Elphine House Australia Challenge.  The theme this month is "favorite colors".  It couldn't be easier than that!  Please remember that you must use an image designed by Elisabeth Bell (any company) for your project.

Here is my DT card:
 

Those who know me know that these aren't my "real" favorite colors.  They are only my favorites this time of year when I love the warm colors of Autumn.  My card base and mats are SU More Mustard and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Forever Fall 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Daisy Scattering Love from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I cut out the "thankful" sentiment with my Cameo.  A simple bow and a few gemstone leaves finished my simple card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
 

Thanks for stopping by again!  Be sure to check out the new Elphine House Australia challenge and feat your eyes on the gorgeous creations from Lynda and Julie.  We hope you will play along with your favorite Elisabeth Bell image and favorite colors!

Winter Wonderland

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is going well so far!  It has been a cold couple of mornings here.  It's only been in the low 20s and even the highs have only been around 40.  Crazy weather for Alabama, that's for sure.  At least we are not getting the snow that many of my family and friends are getting up North!  Anyway, I am here now because it's my turn to post some inspiration over on the Digi Bells blog

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Snowfall 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Frosty The Snowman from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I colored it up with my Copics.  I added some snow glitter to the trim on their hats.  I also added some snowflakes punched from glitter paper with tiny gems in the centers.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A button and some Baker's Twine finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Digi Bells blog every day where you will find wonderful inspiration from the DT and GDT with the darling images from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.
