Flowers for You

Hello everyone!  Sorry I’ve not been on much, lots going on behind the scenes in my house that I’ve had to deal with.
Today is a new challenge on the Color Crazy Challenge Blog on which I am pleased to be a guest designer.
Our challenge this week is sponsored by Creatful Heart Stamps
I used the poppy digi stamp for my card this week, but I really wanted to play around with colors so I added some blue to the red (yes in my world poppies are blue!).  I just used some DP that I’ve had in my stash, little bits and pieces that I’ve received from swaps.  I’ve added some Wink of Stella to give a bit of sparkle to the flowers and then some Nuvo drops.  The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp.
I hope you like it and feel free to play along.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

Scrappy Classes

I don't usually make resolutions but this year, the only one I made was to actually do some of the online classes that I had purchased over the last year or so.  I have 6 from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine!

The newest one - SCT-365 2018 is a monthly class where you can do a 2 pg layout as well as a card, designed by some of the biggest and best in the Papercrafting world!

I am so happy to be on track for this year...I've done both January and now February!   I'm slowly working through a bunch of photos and kits, the majority of which are from trips so you are going to see a lot of those in the upcoming months!

These classes are super easy to do - with pictures, detailed instructions, free cut files and exclusive sketches!  You can find all the details here!    Give one a try!  You won't be disappointed and you will be pushing through layouts and cards in no time!

Thinking of Fall


 Our sponsor this week for Penny's is Paper Creator  (the winner this week gets a £10 credit to the store)  and I just knew I wanted to use this fun image!

Noah's Autumn Leaves

 I don't have a lot of fall/autumn images and Noah is just too darn cute.  I also knew that I had some fun autumn DP in my stash that I received in a swap that I really wanted to use with it! Now this image is pre-colored because we all know my coloring skills leave a lot to be desired.


The sentiment is from a bunch of new goodies I received from Vicki Boutin.  They are from her fun line with American Crafts.  I punched out some maple leaves with my punch out of some of the DP and cardstock.   I also had a little yellow leaf that I got in a swap ages ago. I hope you like the card and be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Bright & Beautiful

Hooray for Friday!  Weekend! So sad that we are down to our final weekends of the summer :(
Ok it's my team's week at Brown Sugar and our sponsor this week is

We have a really fun color challenge for you this week! Look how bright this is!! Just perfect for your summer projects!

So for my card this week, I dabbled in some watercoloring.  I say dabbled because I'm not very good at it, but it was fun to play!  I used my Sakura Create watercolor markers as well as some copics and a few of the distress oxide inks!
My DP is from My Minds Eye - an older collection called Notable.  I also just added a few little sequins for that pop of red.
I hope you will join us over on the blog this week.  Play along, let us see what you can create with these colors and check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!

Today's challenge is sponsored by BUGABOO STAMPS who are giving away 4 digi imagesof the winner's choice!

and also another great sponsor DI'S DIGISTAMPS who will be giving the winner a $12 Gift Certificate for the store to do some shopping!

 Here is the card I created using a fun summer image from Bugaboo!

 How fun is this guy!  I paired him up with the Summer Fun collection from Fancy pants that I have been trying to use up, so it worked perfectly!  I colored him with my copics and then cut him out.  It's really hard to tell from the picture but his cool shades and his floaty both have some glossy accents!
