On the Farm

Hello!  It’s time for another challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  This time our theme is Shaped Cards (not square or rectangular).  Of course we have a generous sponsor for the challenge, and this week it’s

Melonheadz Doodles

I used elements from the Wash Day set for my card. I merged the cow and the barn, then printed them off “card size”.  After coloring them with my Prismacolors, I carefully cut it out, so the card was actually the shape of the image 🙂  I hope you can join us, and show us your shaped cards this week 🙂

I’d like to enter the following challenges with this:

Creative Moments – #128 ATG/World Smile Day

Inky Chicks – #89 Anything But Square

Kitty Bee’s Aloha Friday Challenge – #105 Kiddy Cards

Not Just Cards – ATG

Good morning 🙂  It’s time for another challenge at C.R.A.F.T.,  the last one for September, can you believe it??!! The time just seems to fly faster and faster as winter approaches.  We have a fun theme for you, this week.  “Out of this World” – so let your imagination take flight!!!  Bad pun, but I couldn’t resist 🙂  Our sponsor this time around is Scrap N’ Dipity, and Alisha has tons to choose from in her store!!

I colored up Astrology Doll Leo with my Prismacolors, using some fiery colors (Leo colors, trust me, I’m one of ’em), then had a ton of fun with the background 🙂  I used this sketch:

from Sketch Saturday, as the inspiration for the layout.  The background is plain black CS, that I added glitter stars, and dots to.  I was so happy to find the star trim in my stash, as it was perfect for the “band” element of the sketch.  The sentiment is one that I made up on the computer.  A little more glitter to edge the main layer and it was ready to put on a card blank 🙂

I’d also like to enter this in the following:

Hi there!! It’s hard to believe that another week has gone by, and we are already officially into autumn!! It also brings us to a new challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  Our theme this time is Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving….a broad selection for all your fall makes 🙂  We have the very talented Nikki Burnette as our sponsor this time 🙂

I colored the beautiful image, Taryn, up with my SN markers, having a lot of fun making the background with the glowing moon 🙂  For the background, I embossed a piece of dark blue CS, after inking the embossing folder with black ink to give the pattern some definition.  I added some birch tree die cuts, in black, for a bit “extra”.  Everything is matted in a green, and I used some orange sparkly alpha stickers that I had in my stash (and amazingly had the right letters for!), for the sentiment.  A few sparkly bats finished this bewitching card off 🙂

I would like to join the following with this card:

Crafty Catz – #384 Halloween

Good morning!! Today brings us to another challenge at the C.R.A.F.T. challenge blog, and it’s time for another Christmas themed challenge!!  We are being sponsored by two wonderful companies this time:

Digital Delights


Oddball Art

I have used the adorable image Snowy, Slippy and Flurry from Digital Delights, and have colored the cute trio up with my SN markers.  I had a bit of fun with my white gel pen on the word, to give it a bit of oomph! After it was all colored, I matted it with a coordinating blue CS, and placed it on a background that was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I added some die cut snowflakes, cut from the same blue CS, and added some little blingies in their centres 🙂

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

ABC Christmas Challenge – S for Sketch, T for Trio….I used the Trio option (Snowy, Slippy and Flurry)
