Pile It On Challenge For 1-30

It is Challenge Sunday at Pile It On.
So the challenge today is to Punch It. I punched tthe Snowflake from several MS punches.  
I keep wishing for Spring but lets face it ...It is still a good month or two away. So with that, I have made another Winter card using a Digital Stamp Set by our Wonderful Sponsor {SCRAPORCHARD}. You can find this Digital Set Here and the Digital Papers I used Here.
 The sketch I used this week is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
 Challenges I will be entering this card in this week are:
Pile It On: Punch It
Do Yo Stack Up?:#4 Patterned Paper
 (snowflakes, pretty papers, cute images)
Fab & Funky Challenges: Use a Digi on your card
Copic Creations Challenge #42: Anything New
(New Digital papers)
Creative Belli Blog: The letter P ( for penguins)

Have A Great Week Everyone.

A New Challenge At Bugaboo.

Today is a Challenge Day at Bugaboo and this weeks challenge is to make an ATC.
 The Design Team has some great samples over on the Challenge Blog. I used  one of the Monkey Love Images for my ATC, the paper is Bo Bunny and I colored this with my Copics. this would be a perfect size for kids valentine. I thought I could convince my granddaughter to make hers for her kindergarten class when she was here today and she opted to make one for her teacher and forget the kids. There are too many kids to make them for. LOL!   

This is a card I made using the New Ava and Deacon Images. You can find a Freebie Here and the rest of the set Here. I used Basic Grey Papers and for the Image I printed it on Black Texture Cardstock and then colored it with Prisma Color Pencils. I also used a white gel pen.I like the texture paper. In Yesterdays post I used White textured cardstock to print the images and Digital papers. See That Here.

The Sketch for this card is from Friday Sketchers.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Friday Freebie time At Bugaboo.

I t seems like I've been waiting for this release forever. How cute is this Deacon? It is the Friday Freebie today over at Bugaboo and you can run to the SHOP and grab one for yourself. And check out the other adorable Images that are in this set.
The Design Team has some wonderful samples for you to see at the Challenge Blog so don't forget to check those out too.
For this card I used Basic Grey Papers and colored the image with my Copics.  There was a baby shower for my niece last Sunday and I used this for the card that went with her gift. On the inside of the card it reads
Mom and Dad Will Always Be There To Catch You!

I also wanted to share this card that I made the other day. It is one of the Stella And Gus Tidbit Images that were released last week. I so love Stella and her wit. You can find this set HERE. So this is another card I've made using Digital papers that I've printed onto texture Card Stock from Colorbok that I picked up at WallMart  ( I am so sorry I can't remember what company the Digis came from). I also printed Stella on top of one of the pattern papers (gotta love PNG files) and this paper works wonderfully for coloring on with Copics. I will be using this a lot.
Have a great day and I hope you stop by tomorrow.

A New Challenge At Chi Chi Memories

Good Morning All and welcome to a New Challenge over at Chi Chi Memories. I always love the sketches by Natalie that we get to work with and of course the Images are great.

I love working with this stuff.

Some New To Me Stamps

I was Blog Hopping (or should I Say Blog Commenting ) the other day and I came across this adorable Sugar Nellie Image. These little girls are just beautiful and I am so happy to have found them. You can purchase your own ( they have both Digi and Rubber in these) at Funky Kits and you can visit the Sugar Nellie Blog to see what all they have going on. I still have to explore and I'm sure I will have more stamps soon and cards to share. 
I had just bought some paper packs and embellies by K&Co at Michaels and they were perfect for these cards. The flowers are also by K&Co. and come in a punch out pad. So cool.
I just love the red hair on this one.
A close up of the Flower.
Here is another redish Blonde girlie. I embossed the piece of paper that is under her and inked the edges.
Beautiful Flowers

And the pack of Borders are great too.

This little sweetie reminds me of my youngest granddaughter a little bit.
This close-up makes it easy to see all the layers.

This will make a beautiful Birthday Card for someone.

The ink drawing and all the shadowing makes it so easy to color these images. You already have a map to follow.

This is one of the Birthday Greetings that came with one of the packs of embellies.

And here is another close-up of one of the flowers.
I hope you all have a great week ahead.
