Wild Flower Wed.A.C.&C Challenge / Quixotic #15 1-4 the Boys

Hi Everyone, happy Friday.  Hope this finds all doing well. I would first like to Thank the girls over at Wild Flower Kids for my in the Top 5 win of last week.  Check out their new releases (see sidebar) And if you haven't heard Lori Boyd will be releasing her new line of stamps via Claudia & Co..  They started last night with a Blog Hop @ Claudia & Co. it is for the whole weekend (see sidebar) so come join us. 
 Now for my entry.
 Another New Release this one a Diane Duda over at Sugar Nellie.  I would have done my entry in different colors  so that the frog in the pocket would have shown up more. But since one of the challenges called for Aqua, Choclate & cream. I went with this. I got three of her new boy releases. They seem to catch the spirt of the 3 boys we have(one of the 3 is my Dad)in the family. This one made me cry.  All finished with the boys, working on the background & I let the sand color area in the right side of the picture get away from me.  So that took hours to try and fix.  So that caused me to have to add more to the background than just a little color.  I must have been having an out of body exp. because I have no ideal what the things are in the background.  So before anyone thinks they see the devil or some kind of symble in there.  The only thing they are a symble of is that I was tired.  Now I will let you go.  So you can go check out all these New Releases.
Thank You for considering my entry this week.
Happy Weekend!!!!!

DCRU Challenge #27 Left Over V-Day / CCT Challenge 101 Ribbon

Hello Everyone,
Hope this finds all doing well.  . I do not have any V-Day papers. So I thought this image would work for the challenge. By covering up  the shears with the ribbon & by coloring the Lg. hearts the color of puppy treats it could be used for any type of card.  So I hope this works for V-Day left-overs. I just love this (Freebie). I first saw her on Lori Boyd's blog.(use badge in sidebar to get to Lori's blog)  I have not been doing this long so I'm still having trouble getting the hair right.  Lori if you see this I was not trying to copie your colors and I can not believe that the shirt turned out the color it did.  I was trying to use distress ink.  The color I used was worn Lipstick (Pink) and this is what color I got.  I know I should have tried it on scrap paper first.  But even though it did not come out the color I was going for, it turned out to match ribbon I had.  Over all I'm happy with it.  And I guess in the end that is what matters. 

And I just love how it turned out on the back.  I could almost have used it for the front ,but not everyone goes for this effect. So I thought I would play it safe & use the front for the front. I actuly like the way puppy turned better on the back.

I love how the inside of this card turned out.  One thing I forgot to redo before I took the picture was to put "Puppy Treats !!!" under puppy.  This is what Savannah does when she wants her's.

 Now I will get on with my entry post.

My Entry

I resketched sleeping puppy to get a sitting up to beg puppy

Sassy C4C#25 / Wildflower Kids Think Green Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Hope this finds all having a good start to the week.  And that all had a good weekend. Even though it looks like my entry (for last week) below did not manage to take any prizes I just wanted  to Thank You  for all the kind comments that you left. This one still holds a special place.

Now for this weeks Post.
 I had started working on this image Sassy Hatter for a St. Patty card for my husband.  I was not feeling well when I started looking for a image to use.    The color image was done in green so my head went with St. Patty.  It finly registered after seeing a comerical for the Disney Alice movie comming out that she was the mad hatter. I thought it was strange that she was doing tea.  I know the title for the image is Sassy Hatter but like I said I was sick things weren't clicking too well at the time. And I couldn't help myself I had to put in a picture with my Belleek teapot that hubby got me when we went to Irland and went to the Belleek factory.  Ok, I know you all are busy so I will get on with my Entry.

My Entry

Image is from Sassy Studios Designes-Sassy Hatter
Coloring done with Copic markers & Prismacolor Pencils
Papers are from Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug embossing folder & Spellbinders Nest.
Ribbon,brads & buttons misc. that I had at the house

Gold Stickles It wouldn't be a St. Patty card without a little gold.
Thank You for considering my entry this week.

TPE Challenge #54 Ribbon/DCRU Challenge #26/Flutter By Wed.#97/CCT#100 Metal Mania/Quixotic #14 Something for Mum

HI Everyone,
I hope this finds you all doing better than I have been.  If it wasn't bad enough that I had the whole teeth thing to deal with, last night my belly started up & has not stop.  So I'm just  getting this in under the wire.
 My Entry this week:
The Image that I used is hand sketched by me. It is based  on a Diane Duda/ Sugar Nellie Stamp. I have the stamp ordered but it has not had time to get to me.  So I thought that I would try my hand at sketching it.  I hope that I have not broken any of the copy laws. Any way I  used mixed mediums Copic Markers & Prismacolor Pencils. I wanted to be able to remove the image so if someone wanted to frame it they could.  I used Photo Corners & then I used acetate to cover.  I used 3 BoBuny I Candy brads from the Melody collection.  The paper, ribbon & button are all extras that I had around the house.  
Thank You for considering my Entry.
Happy Weekend to Everyone!

Sassy DCRU #25 Love Challenge / CCT #99 Name of Love/ TPE Challenge #53

Hi Everyone.
 I hope that this finds all doing well.  I'm recovering form having 2 teeth pulled ,2 filled & getting my first  partial.  This all happened on Thur. So I'm moving a little slow.
 Now for my entry.
The orig. Digi Stamp is from Sassy Studio (Baby it's Cold Outside) I had Knitted & Felted this hat so when I saw this stamp on Lori Boyd's site I had to have it.  I have made a few changes.  I changed the Hat,scarf & Hair.
Paper I used is from DCRU Feb. Kit along with the buttons.  I can't believe that the colors I used match the Feb. Kit so well.
I used Copic markers & Prismacolor Pencils to color 
Cuttlebug to emboss card base & misc. ribbon
And since we have been having soooo much snow I had to add just a touch of snow.
Well, my teeth are starting to hurt so I had better go.
Thank You for considering my Entry.
Have a good day.

C4C #23 Be My Valentine Challenge

Hi Everyone,
While home(Mom & Dad's) I got back into my Knitting.  I was in one of the yarn shops & it was filled with Sheep.  They were hiding every where.  The shop owner was very kind & threw in some extras.  So I wanted to send her a Thank You Card.  So when I got home(Savannah's & My Home in Ky.) I went  sheep hunting & found this little one at Pink Petticoat. I love the cards that she does.  They remind me of Fondunt(not sure that I spelled that right)you know the stuff that they put over wedding cakes. Any who, when I printed the image I did the one with Valentine by mistake so I thought it would work well for my hubby. Since we will not be together for Valentines Day I went with the Thinking of (Ewe).  Him being Marine Corps. I'm sure the first thing he will say "What did you call me????? Do I look like a female sheep ect." For those of you (not Ewe) who don't get that.  It's a line from the movie "An Officer And A Gentelman" .  Well, I have gone on long enough.  Better get to my entry for this weeks challenge.  Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
My Entry:
Image is from Pink Petticoat :Image Stamps with Heart
I think this is the smallest image that I have done.  Coloring was easier than I thought.
I used Copics:C1 to highlight the sheep, Face & Ears R20,YR00 & E93. Heart Flower R32&R20
Paper:Bazill Basics Blk Dotted Swiss,rest of the cardstock is no name that I got at a local shop.  Spellbinders Nest. #9 (I think? If not 9 then #5) Cricut: Thinking Of You (I cut off the You)George & Basic Shapes. Cuttlebug Swirls folder. Stickles Star Dust for the swirls on the sheep. Ribbon is from a box I got like you find at the store when they try to make it look special to go along with that special price.
Thank You for considering my entry.  Have a nice week!!!
