Hello bloggers. I managed to make three cards today. This post is for a challenge site that is new to me; CMC Challenge blog this week's challenge is "frost/winter". I had a lot of fun and I think my copic skills might be improving just a little bit. However I do see a fun copics level 1 class over there as well at Scrapbitz copics that I think I'll have to save for and take very soon!

So here's my entry;

today's creation

Hello blog friends. Today I took on two challenges with one card. I'm not a big "stacker" of challenges, usually just do one at a time, personally I think it takes more brain power than what I have at the time of crafting to include more than one or two challenges. So without further a-du....

Entered into:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Label it

"Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop"

Hi everyone! Today is another first for me. I'm participating in the Tiddly Inks Blog Hop going on over HERE

I recently purchased these adorable Wryn images, how could I not? They are adorable! Of course I had to have the whole bundle of them ;)

Anyhow, the theme of the blog hop is Friends are the Flowers of Life. So I created a birthday card for my best friend Danielle, it's her birthday today!

Here's my creation;
I used two paper pads for the patterned paper (both older) one was Quite Contrary: Jack and Jill, the other was Origins by Basic Grey. I colored Wryn with my prisma pencil crayons and added a little bling to her hair clip. The ribbon is a generic but yummy satin yellow.

I'm a huge fan of AmyR and all her sentiment stamps, I just love how she does a little bit on the inside of her cards, so taking a page out of her book I've added a little something to the inside. Of course using one of her sentiment stamp sets helps.

Well that's it for me. Hope your enjoying the blog hop! I'm off to catch the ferry to go to Victoria, BC in an hour, better go pack!

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspired by #5

Morning Bloggers! Last night I was looking around at a couple of the challenges that I participate in and Laurel's Inspired by #5 was the one I settled on. It's a photo inspiration, pop on over and have a look on her blog. Here's my take.

The heart, the red and the chocolate brown are what stood out for me!

The adorable image is by Tiddly Inks

This time I tried taking my photo against a black back drop with my ott light helping out, learned this trick from my friend Rachel.

Valentines treat holder

Hello bloggy friends. Today's post is created for two challenges. My good friend Rachel has a Valentines treat holder challenge on our private message board and All That Scraps has a Wednesday challenge and this week is anything goes. To meet the Wednesday challenge requirements of use a stamp from the All That Scraps store I used a sentiment stamp from AmyR's Valentines set.

This was also my first go at making a box with my cricut tags, bags and boxes cartridge. Think it turned out alright :)

Thanks for stopping by.

A first Tuesday Morning

Hi. It's Friday night but I'm now finished my very first entry into Tuesday Morning Sketches. I've looked for a few weeks and finally found the time to play along.

Here's my entry, Valentines of course (cause I love love) :)

The two mini envelopes actually come out and have little pieces of paper in them that someone could write on. I work will a large group of men so I plan of having a basket of cards that they can purchase for their wives for Valentines Day :) Helping them all look good, it's what I do ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Treat holder

Happy New Year everyone!
So happy to have a few days at home to play with my scrappy stuff!
I was browsing about for challenges to get my Valentines mojo flowing and I found the Wednesday Challenge over at All That Scraps has a new treat holder challenge. I've created a little treat holder (I'll probably put a gift certificate in it) for Valentines Day. I used one of Amy R's sentiment stamps to qualify for the challenge. I love her sentiments, I think I've almost bought every set that All That Scraps has!

Ok here's my treat holder;

I had purchased a package of ribbon from Michaels for my Valentines creations and when I pulled them out I looked at the packaging and thought "well isn't that a handy little package" so I decorated it up and it's good to use!
Thanks for stopping by!
