Card from Candy

Hello everyone.  I just wanted to show you what came in the mail.  I got a card from my fabulous cousin Candy!!  Here it is:

Isn't it adorable?  But that's not all I got.  Candy just opened her own craft supplies store.  You can find it here.  She also has a blog here which has a link to her store on the side.  She is just getting going and I hope she grows quickly.  Look what I got from her store:

I can't wait to start using these wood sheets.  They are so cool.  If anyone has an idea for me, please leave a comment and I will give it a try.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

KennyK's Challenge #170 - Stars

Hello everyone.  We are seeing Stars over at KennyK's Krafy Krew.  Our new challenge is Anything Goes with a Twist...Stars.  If you incorporate the twist, you win more digis!!!  Woot woot!!!  I am using Sweet Melissa from KennyK for my project.  She reminds me of my niece.  (If any of my nieces are reading this, please leave a comment guessing which one of you this is.)

I used a variety of star dies to make this.  Unfortunately, I was too lazy to write it all down so I could add it to my post.  I also used star gems from Darice.  The paper is from Bo Bunny & Basic Grey.  I colored with Copics.  The ribbon was part of a cheap pack from the dollar store.  I used Glossy accents and my Wink of Stella glitter pen (my new love).

We hope that you will join us for this challenge.  First, head over to KennyK's Krafty Krew and check out what the rest of the design team has created for you.  All the details are posted there for you. Happy creating.

Corrosive Challenge #197 - Pretty Pastels

Hello everyone.  It is time for another Corrosive Challenges challenge...Pretty Pastels.  This sucker was really difficult for me.  I am not a pastel fan. I love deep, rich color.  My little sweet baby Sydney headed up to the studio to give me support while I tried to struggle through this one.  Happily, I survived and am pretty pleased with the result.

Our sponsor this time around is:

I colored with Copics and used Stampin Up paper, McGill punch, Sizzix oval die, Anna Griffin embossing folder & gems.  I am pooped so this is going to be a short post.  Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of the design team created for your inspiration.

Corrosive Challenge #196 - Show Us Your Metal

Hello everyone.  It is time for a new Corrosive Challenges challenge.  This time we want you to Show Us Your Metal!  Our sponsor is:

I love love love Delicious Doodles.  They have something for everyone.  I prefer the ones with a bit of a darker side to them.  I am using Gothicka.  I colored her with Copics and cut her out.  If you look closely, I layered up several different parts of the image with SU dimensionals.  I also used several different types of glitter pens on the image.  This sucker took forever to color but I enjoyed every minute of it.  I just wish my photography skills were better.  There is so much shimmer and shine to this card but it didn't come through on the photo.  I wish I lived closer to Kathy so she could take pictures for me.  She knows I love her pics.

Now please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what my fabulous teammates created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

Challenge #194 for Corrosive Challenges

Hi everyone.  I am back with another challenge for Corrosive Challenges.  Our current challenge is Animals.  All you need to do to participate is to create a project featuring and animal.

Sponsor:  Meljen's Designs
Prize:  4 (non-colored) Digis

I know this project isn't really me.  I think my mojo is on vacation.  I am trying desperately to get it back as it has been missing for weeks.  My sister is just kicking my but lately in the craft department and I just can't have that continue.  (A little sibling rivalry is good right?)  She is the oldest so I have to win at something.  Did I mention I am also the middle child?  Am I gaining any sympathy from you guys?

Ok, enough whining from me.  Please head over to the Corrosive Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
