My first Christmas card this year

Well I have made my first Christmas card of the season and it is done off the cute sketch created by Jack for the weekly Whimsical Wednesday: The Diedrich Dare challenge which can be found here:

For this card I used a brand new stamp by Harriet Hurst that I just won from the Nutcrafters challenge. I think this angel is so pretty and I really enjoyed working with it. She is colored in using Copics and Bic Mark-its. I also used diamond Stickles on her wings. The paper is from a christamas swap I recently took place in. The snowflake brads are something I had in my stash.

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a fabulous week.

SAS Challenge

OK so this is a card I made for the challenge over at
I had to make a baby shower card so I thought that this sketch would go perfect with the stork stamp that I have.

I used Copics to color the image. The house is made from the new Core-dinations cardstock that I just got. I had to add a shiny brass looking brad for the doorknob.

Thanks for looking.

So here is the sketch we were to use from the SAS Fresh Batch

A fall card for this Monday

Well its Monday everyone. I hope we all had a great weekend. I know I did, there is so much to do this time of year.

Well This is my first card I will post this week. I promise I will have more later.

This card was done for multiple challenges, five of them in fact. So lets get to it, the five challenges were the following:

Pile it on challenge - was to use a leaf or leaves.
Friday Sketchers - was to use the sketch provided.
The Color Throwdown - was to use the colors orange, a dark nuetral (I chose brown), red and yellow.
Cute Card Thursday - was to make your card sparkle (as you can see the leaves do that but so do several parts of Miss Dahlia)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - was to make a card for the theme of Four Seasons, you could pick a season or do all. Here I picked Fall.

So onto the card specifics. I used some patterned paper that I got in a swap and cardstock from Making Memories. The leaves I cut from some patterned paper that I had. The image is a Wild Sprout named Dahlia from The Greeting Farm. I colored her with Copics, Bic Mark-Its and some Starlight glitter pens.

Thanks for looking everyone and I hope you all have a great week.

Another Anya card

This week I made a card for my friend's birthday using two challenges. Both of which are new challenge blogs for me. I am so excited.

First I used the recipe challenge at . The recipe was to use 3 pieces of paper or cardstock, 2 buttons and one bow. Here I used the two different color cardstock and the patterned paper I got from a swap. I used the two teal buttons and the pale pink ribbon for the bow (although I am not to sure about the bow).

The second challenge was a sketch challenge over at . When I saw the sketch I knew if would work perfect with the recipe challenge.

Now as for the rest of the card, I used Flutter Anya for the image which I colored in using Bic Mark-its and Copics. I also used the Happy Birthday rub-ons from Making Memories.
