Somebunny Loves You

Wow..only a few days left until Easter and if you can believe it, we still have snow here in Calgary.  **sigh** Seven months of winter is just too long. :(  We have a sketch challenge for you over at Lollipop Crafts for this week's challenge and our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish!  Make sure you check out all the deets here.

This is my card this week and I really love how it turned out.  I colored my image with copics of course and then chalked it after cutting it out with my nestiblities.  The DP is just from my stash andso is the ribbon.  I made a little border with a new punch I got and the little bunny stickers is from the $$ store. The stamp set is from My Craft Lounge which I picked up recently.  I really like how this card turned out!

All Things Girly

Good Monday morning!  A couple of new challenges for you today!

On the Lollipop Crafts challenge blog, our theme this week is All things Girl..this should be an easy one for you! I've seen lots of girly stuff all over blog land.  Our sponsor this week is Inky Impressions

Make sure you stop by the challenge blog to get all the details on the challenge and this week's prize!

Here's my DT card this week, using one of Inky Impression's great images.  (I see these all over blog land too, so you know they're popular!)



So I finally used up one of these pre designed cards that I picked up at Michael's years aso.  I added a little DP from my stash.  The image was colored with copics.  I added a couple of different ribbons from Savvy & Sassy.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment before attaching it to the card.  The brads are from my stash, as are all the flowers.  I hope you like it.

Box it, Gift it

Hey there.  It's another new challenge on Lollipop Crafts this week and we are looking for your boxes or gifts.

Okay..this is not something I normally make but I did have a good time doing it.  A big thank you to Angie Kennedy Juda aka Chicnsratch on Youtube for her tutorial as that's what I used for my project this week. You can check it out here..very simple and easy to do! Thanks Angie!  Her blog is here

You can check out the DT projects here as well as the details for this week's challenge.



Our sponsor this week is Meljean's Designs..



Oh I love her stuff.  I just used some orange cardstock I had and stamped it with the stars of my Stampin Up basic backgrounds stamp.  The image was colored with copics and then chalked.  It was then put on a border cut from my spell binders and the die cut stars were from a swap I did on Club CK.  The stamped sentiment is from my Stampendous sentiments set.  I hope you enjoy this and look forward to seeing what you come up with on our challenge this week.

And here's my card for this week's challenge.


I've had this image FOREVER so I finally decided to use it.  I just colored with my copics, added some DP from my stash and a border I cut out using one of my fun punches.  The big flower was from Walmart in the wedding section and I just spritzed it with a little glimmer mist.  The smaller ones just from my stash.  A few brads and a bit of bling and we are done! I hope you like it.
