It's Rather Blue

Good afternoon! It's a bit soggy here today. That's ok, though since my house is in desparate need of cleaning! I guess I'd better get moving on that;)

I was looking through my card kits I had colored images in, and I found this little mouse (too cute, right?) I love the papers too, and I seem to be needing too many get well cards already this fall. I thought he would work well.

I used the sketch from Papertake this week.

Supplies are from a card kit, but I added SU Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel cardstock, a Cuttlebug Paisley embossing folder, clear ice Stickles, and Pearls from Kaiser. Image is colored in with Prismacolor pencils.

Competeting Princesses #3

Morning! Nothing much to share today. My head is in a thousand places at once lately is seems. But I want to share this card I made for our Paper Princesses monthly challenge. AnnMarie sent out the kit for our group this month. She rocks the punch art! She put this little doggie together for us using just punches!

I used SCS sketch 222.

You Rock...Again!

I told you I've been working on boy birthday cards:) Here is another one. This was for my cousin's 18th birthday the other day. I used the rest of the supplies from a card kit (thanks, April!) I had in my stash. I used SCS sketch 16 for the layout.

Besides the card kit supplies, I added SU cardstock in Real Red and Going Grey and DCWV white core black paper. I also used some black stickles for details on the swirlies around the guitar, and colored some detail in on the guitar with a Copic marker.

Birthday Candles

Hello! Here's another card I put together this week. I'm short on boy birthday cards, so I needed to add to my stash:)

I had fun putting this card together. The supplies are from a card kit, and I thought it was really cute! All I added to this was the cardstock (SU Old Olive and Certainly Celery) and the Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I used the sketch from Card Patterns this week. It's a neat one!

Fall Fun

Good morning! The sun is shining and it's going to be warm again - yay! I'm not sure exactly what we're going to do today, but that's ok. I have to recover from the weekend - my sink shows it too:)

I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Supplies are image from Whimsy Stamps colored in with Copic markers and highlighted with clear Stickles. Cardstock is SU Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Close to Cocoa, DP is DCWV from an old Fall Stack. Circles were cut with Nesties. Pearls are Kaiser from the Paper Jewels store.

Critter Monday

Good morning! I am so excited to be part of the Critter Sketch Challenge Team! What a talented group of crafty gals! Be sure to pop on over and check out the sketch for this week - it's a fun one created by one of our own - Michele. The sponser this month is Whimsy Stamps, and the more you play along with us, the more chances for a prize.

Here's my take on the sketch:

Supplies are SU cardstock Really Rust and More Mustard, and the brown is DCWV white core. Not sure where the DP and image are from, but the image is colored in with Copics and highlighted with clear Stickles. Sentiment is PTI stamped with Memento brown ink. Embossing is done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. All embellies are from a card kit.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Altered Paper Clips

Hello! I thought I'd sneak a few minutes to share these altered paper clips I made. I found these plastic paper clips at Walmart and thought they would be perfect to add on to - and turns out they are easy! I just used my circle punches and used those for my base, and then hot-glued them onto the clips. With the holidays quickly approaching, these would be a quick teacher gift or for anyone else on your list:)

Supplies are SU paper in Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Creamy Caramel. Stamps are from the dollar bin, colored in with Copics and accented with clear Stickles and SU Crystal Effects. Paper clips are from the office supply at Walmart.
