Mom - It is time for new challenge as Crafts 4 Eternity and Alphabet Challenge Blog! Crafts 4 Eternity's challenge is Mum and we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs. The prize is 3 Digi stamps.

The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is D for die cuts. I used a SB border die for my card. I love the dies for cutting the edges of cards.

My stamps are SU and my sentiment is hand written. I can't believe that I don't have a single Mom stamp in my collection.

I finished off the card with some tiny pink pearls.

Magic - I have been traveling and got back just in time to finish this card. It is my DT card for Creative Card Crew. Our challenge for this fortnight is animals. 

My DP is Hearts and Clubs,Guy's Life by American Traditions Designs.

My cute little mouse is Whiff of Joys Henry. I think he is adorable and colors up so easy. I colored him with Copics and I kept the lid on my Stickles, they are just to girly for this little fellow.

I did get some bling in with this black, sparkly embossing powder. The stamp and punch is SU. The sentiment is HOT OFF THE PRESS.

Elven Princess

Elven Princess - We have a new sketch up at Seems a Little Sketchy. This challenge lasts for 2 weeks, PLUS we have future sketches up as well. See the future sketches tab at the top.

Here is the sketch that was designed by Lauri.

My DP's are MME, Honey.

My image is Elven Princess by our sponsor, Aurora Wings. These are some of the most gorgeous images that I have seen in a while. Aurora Wings has also just started an Aurora Wings challenge blog, and the first challenge is anything goes and you don't have to use one of their images to play along. So even more chances to win some of these beauties or some not so beautiful (LOL) images in the Macabre style.

I colored her with Copic's and added Stickles to some of the dew drops and some pieces of her jewelery.

My flower is Pizzazz Aplenty paired with a MB die. the calendar pieces were cut from the papers.

Tongue - The star of this scrapbook page is my sweet granddaughter Kaylee. When I seen the below sketch for Crafts 4 Eternity, it just called to me to do a page with it, instead of the usual card.

Designer Paper by DCWV, Christmas Made. Only the snowflakes were not part of the paper.

Crafts 4 Eternity sketch!

Don't you just love the tongue?

The snowflakes were cut with SB dies on kraft card stock. I layered them with foam tape and added a red gemstone to the top of them. 

I inked all papers with distress ink. I believe I used Vintage Photo.

Eye of the Tiger

Eye of the Tiger - The new challenge at Creative Card Crew is to use a "lucky" charm in your project. We have 2 wonderful sponsors for this challenge, Delicious Doodles and Marianne Designs. Delicious Doodles is giving out 4 digi images and Marianne Designs is giving 2 die cut sets

Teri, at Delicious Doodles has these amazing images of eyes. I have been wanting to do one for ages, so I was thrilled to "need" to do one of them. The reptile eye looks like it would be really fun to do to. I could see it with some haunting highlights.

I went CAS simple using kraft cardstock with a Chicken Wire embossing folder (CB.) I tied some hemp cord and attached my orange crystal charm to it.

Opps! - This weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is spots and stripes. I went with a really simple 1 layer card for my project. I used a stencil and Wild Honey distress ink. 

My sentiment is SU.

My husband commented that this is one of his favorites. Maybe for his next birthday card, I can just spill some ink and he will love it. What a great husband I have!
