Hey Farmer Crow!

Happy Thursday everyone. Guess what, it is NEW RELEASE DAY over at Meljen's Designs. Check out these fabulous images (which can be purchased along with the rest of Meljen's fabulous images, at the the BRAND NEW Meljen's Shop).

A new release means a NEW CHALLENGE over at Meljen's Designs. This week's challenge is a COLOR challenge:   RED and GOLD

For my card this week I chose to work with Farmer Crow. I am still without a camera so this is from my cell phone. Here I used some craps of  paper that I had in my bin. The yellow with the scallopped edge is from the Fall DCWV stack from last year and the birdie paper is from my one and only trip to Archivers last summer. Mr. Crow is al colored up with my new Copics and so is the doodling on the edges. I topped the card off with punching some eyelets in the scallops and threading some twine through. Probably one of my fave cards I've made in quite a while.

Now head on over to the Meljen's Designs DT blog so that you can check out this week's challenge along with all the fabulous DT cards. FYI, the challenge gives you a chance to win free images. Also don't forget to grab this week's FREEBIE while you are there.

    Trick or Treat

    Hey everyone. I hope you are all having a great week so far. I have a new card I want to share with you. I made it for the current challenge over at the Card Makin Mamas Challenge Blog. The current challenge is HALLOWEEN.

    Our wonderful sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and they gave us some fabulous images to work with. I chose to use Scene it Halloween Witch. I found some fun papers in my scrap stash, the dotted paper is from My Mind's Eye and the striped paper is from last years DCWV Fall Stack. I followed this week's Deconstructed Sketch. I added some bling and the Trick or Treat sticker for dimension.

    Again sorry for the blurry pic, my camera issue still isn't resolved.

    It's Mr. Bones


    I am here to share yet another fabulous Meljen's Designs image with you. This is Mr. Bones. Isn't he great. As soon as I saw him with last week's release I knew that I had to create something with him. Then I saw the current Deconstructed Sketch and then the wheels started cranking in my mind. All the patterned paper here is from the DCWV Fall stack from last year.  I added some glitter spiderweb ribbon and google eyes.

    Sorry the pic quality is icky, I had to take this with my cell phone because apparently my camera decided not to like the USB cord.

    Friendship card

    Since this morning was late start for Wyatt I thought I would take advantage of  the extra time by making a card. Sorry the pic quality is icky, I had to take this with my cell phone because apparently my camera decided not to like the USB cord.

    I was inspired by the colors of the current challenge going on for the I {Heart} Papers 3rd Birthday challenge. The colors are geren, pink and blue, which are the colors of their logo. I used several variations of the colors as you can see. The DP isn't actually DP, it is the front of a store bought birthday card I got this year. I love the print so I decided to repurpose it. I then found some teal cardstock and the green stripe paper (Imaginisce) in my scraps to use. The image is a sentiment freebie from Paper Makeup Stamps. I finished it off by using some teal eyelets, hot pink cording, and layering flowers.

    Roger the Reindeer

    Hey everyone and Happy Hump Day to you all. I was unfortunately absent from Blogland over the last several days due to some very sick kiddos in my house.

    Sadly I had to miss posting this card for it's intended purpose which was the Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop. This little guy is Roger the Army Reindeer and was created by Meljen's Designs specifically for this Hop.

    Roger was super duper fun to color and use for this card. At first I wasnt to thrilled with the color of his fur so I took an eyeshadow sponge and swiped it across some brown ink and then sponged it lightly along the body of Roger. The result was definately worth the extra effort IMO. I used Core'Dinations cardstock and some Christmas paper from last years DCWV stack. Topped it off with some scrap christmas ribbon I had.
