Sugar Bowl Challenge 20


This week at the Sugar Bowl there is a sketch challenge plus paper piecing.  I used the same paper from the background to make her dress.  I love this sketch!  I had trouble finding paper to co-ordinate so I used the solid other side of the polka dot paper and stamped the floral pattern onto it.  In place of 2 of the flowers I used 2 flourishes instead.

Stamps:  Sugar Nellie's Bear Hug, Pink Cat Studio's floral background stamp
Paper:  My Mind's Eye (from the stash!)
Medium:  Prismacolor with OMS

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #70

This card is uses the same image and papers as the last one but in a very different layout.  I think I prefer this one!  What do you think?



This card is for Challenge #70 over at A Spoon Full of Sugar.  I love this sketch layout!  I need to figure out how to get better pictures, the colours seem so muted here.

Products used:
Paper- Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses)
Image- Elzybells stamp from the Cold Nose Warm Heart set
Medium- Prismacolor pencils, OMS
other:  Lace, pearls

Elzybells Challenge #28

This card is for the case challenge over at Elzybells blog here.  The card I cased is by Steph, and you can find it on her blog.  I just loved the simplicity of the layout!  Nice and clean :)

I am also making another card using the same papers and image, I'm hoping to get it posted by Monday.  It'll be interesting to see which turns out better!

Details:
Image is from the Cold Nose, Warm Heart set at Elzybells
Papers are Basic Grey- Eskimo Kisses.
Colored with prismacolors, OMS, and stickles.
Buttons from the stash.

Card for Cupcake Crafts challenge:

I made this card for the Pearls and Swirls challenge over at Cupcake Crafts blog. I put teeny tiny pearls along the bottom of her skirt :D I think it could have used a second of the thinner blue ribbons right above the first.

Club Anya Sept VSN Challenge


I got this card made for the "Use Up Scraps" challenge on Paper Craft Planet forums, but since I had never joined there, I don't think I'll be able to participate. I'm still waiting for posting permission :( I'll post my card anyway, since I went through the effort! Since I only had 90 minutes to make it, and 2 kids to get to bed, it's not my best work, but overall I'm happy with it! I used up the scraps from my mum's birthday card I posted a few days ago.
I am on a blog candy roll!

Scrapbitz is giving away some awesome blog candy here, ending tonight.

Yes, 2 posts in one day!

This card is for my mother's birthday. She'll never see this, but Happy Birthday, Mom!

The layout is from a Sugarbowl challenge on their blog.

This also used a bunch of stuff out of my stash (it's endless!). Paper is Chatterbox (bought long ago). The stamp is a Sugar Nellie stamp called Bear Hug. This image is from a good friend of mine who generously lets me use all of her images, thanks Shana!!

This is a card I made for a Paper Makeup Stamp Challenge. I used their Bronto stamp, and a bunch of stuff out of my stash. Gotta love all those 25c sheets of My Mind's Eye paper from our local store's clearance bin!

I've got to figure out how to take better pictures of my cards.
