Happy Birthday Bailey Bug Boggs

Hi everyone.  Today I am back with another challenge from Corrosive Challenges.  Our current challenge theme is Cute and Creepy.  Our sponsor is the awesome Dilly Beans and I decided this would be the perfect chance to make my great niece Bailey's birthday card so here it is.

I used Isabella Fairy from Dilly Beans as the focal image for this card.  Even though my little Bailey Bug is only turning 5, she already has a style and I think I have totally captured it...CUTE & CREEPY.  Her mother is a huge Tim Burton fan and loves Nightmare Before Christmas.  She has passed her loves on to Bailey.  Her birthday is November 1st and she wants to have a Halloween themed party.  She picked out a Frankenweenie cake.  She just loves that kind of stuff.  Here is a picture of Bailey last Halloween.

Isn't she a doll?  Now back to business.  I colored Isabella with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on SU dimensionals, except the wings.  I taped those behind her for more dimension.  All the solid pink paper was done by using a Copic marker so it would match Isabella's hair.  The main background paper is from Bo Bunny.  The others were from my box-o'-scraps.  The sentiment and the punches used for it are all from SU.  

Robin and Bianca came over today.  Robin worked on one of her cards while I worked on this one.  We had a great time.  Bianca, not so much.  She had to clean out the bird cages today.  The birds appreciated it very much as did I.

Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy Birthday Rhonda Sue!

Hi everyone.  I am back with another fabulous challenge from Corrosive Challenges.  Our current challenge is Mother, Maiden, Crone...all you have to do is make a project containing a woman.  We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles, one of my absolute favorite companies.  I was provided with this amazing image called Angelique.  Isn't she gorgeous!!!  I decided she was perfect for my little sister's birthday.  She is totally Rhonda's style.  I hope I remember to mail it.  I actually still have my sister Robin's card from last year that I never gave her.  We laughed about it a few days ago on her birthday.  I did actually did give her a card this year though.  Rhonda's birthday isn't for a few weeks so for once, I am ahead.

I colored Angelique with Copics.  She is popped up on SU dimensionals.  I added some glitter glue to her wings, eye shadow & jewelry.  She used to have a snowflake by her hair but I messed it up so I added a circle with a gem piece from Prima to cover it up.  The background paper is from Paper Pizazz.  The ribbon is leftover from a party favor kit I bought last year.  The green and orange paper was colored with Copics so it would match the coloring on the image.  I did the corners with my corner chomper.

Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of the Design Team has done for your inspiration.  Then join us, won't you?  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Here Comes Fall

I feel like I have been gone forever, but I am back now with another great challenge from Corrosive Challenges.  We are getting ready for fall and would like you to join us.  For this challenge, all you need to do is make a fall themed project.  Simple right?  We are sponsored by Meljen's Designs and I was given this adorable Pumpkin Crow image to create a little inspiration for you.

I used Copics to color it.  I cut it out and popped it up with SU dimensionals.  I stained the paper behind the image with some coffee and then ran it through my paper crimper.  The designer paper is from Authentique.  The orange paper actually wasn't that orange so I colored it with a Copic marker to match the pumpkin.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used to be in their monthly ribbon club but had to drop out for a while.  I am trying to save some pennies where I can.  Christmas will be here before you know it and I have great neices and a great nephew to spoil.  That makes me sound really old doesn't it?!

Anyway, please head over to Corrosive Challenges and join us for some fun.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day.
