TPE Challenge #287

Happy beautiful Monday, everyone!
I wanted to apologize for my post not going through last week,
I was so busy that I didn't even notice until recently.

But no sweat, because this week is a fun new challenge:


ANYTHING GOES

For my card, I used an adorable image from Saturated Canary:


I paired this Valentine bundle cutie with papers from Hobby Lobby {the Paper Studio}
and a rub-on sentiment from Pebbles.
And the bling is missing from the top right panel. lol!

Come along and join in on the fun!

Have a beautiful day everyone, stay safe and warm where you are. :)

TPE Challenge #285


Happy beautiful Monday, everyone!
It's time for a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant,
and we are celebrating the week of Valentine's Day with a theme:

BE MY VALENTINE


Today I am using an adorable image from Saturated Canary,
this sweetie is from the Valentine's Bundle:


This image makes me giggle out loud.
There's something about her awkward confidence that makes me smile!
(I am pretty sure she's that co-worker who wears Christmas sweaters during the winter. lol!)
I colored her with copics, lined her skirt with a white Inkadinkado pen,
and paired her with papers from the Paper Studio {Hobby Lobby}.
I found that cute sentiment on line and thought it was perfect with her curvy sweetness. ;)

Be sure to pop over to The Pink Elephant's blog
to see all the other AMAZING samples by the fabulous Design Team.
This is also where you'll link up your new entry for the challenge. :)

Have a beautiful day everyone, thank you for coming by to see me!

TPE Challenge #284


Happy happy Monday everyone!
Not only is it a new week, but can you believe we're already into a new month?
February is such a lovely time, I get so excited to see color. :)
And speaking of, this week we have a fun, new, festive challenge over at TPE:



Isn't that inspirational picture adorable? Candy, bunting, cupcakes...mmmm...
Here is my card using an image from Saturated Canary:


I copied the burlap panel and bunting, then added that sweet image found here.
Krista's Valentine's Bundle is well worth the cost - 5 images for $10! :)

I colored her in with copics, then added a rub on sentiment from Pebbles.
The bunting was done with a TGF stamp outline that I used on scrap papers.

Come along and join in on the inspirational fun!
All you have to do is interpret the first picture as you desire.
Be sure to pop over and see what Ella's girls have done,
and link up here at The Pink Elephant blog.

Have a blessed day everyone, thank you for coming by!

Shake it off!


Happy beautiful evening, friends!
So I am editing this post, because I failed to schedule this one on time last week. :(
This is my little shaker card for The Pink Elephant's challenge,
this cute Creeper is from TGF, named Monday.
(Yup, pretty much what I feel like on the first day of the week. teehee!)

I used some little micro beads inside of a Stampin' Up container,
that little bee happened to fall right in place from the cardstock. :)
The original rub on sentiment said "Be Mine," I just added an additional 'e' to it.

Now be sure to join us tomorrow for a new challenge,
I promise to have my post up on time! ;)
Thank you for popping in to see me!
hugs,

Black and Gold with The Pink Elephant!

Happy 1st Monday of 2015, everyone!
It's time to jump into those resolutions of getting crafty again,
and what better way than with a new challenge?

This week is a fun and festive one:


We want to see your cards using BLACK and GOLD (inspiration photo above).

Here is my card using an adorable image from Saturated Canary named May:



{This cutie is part of a 2015 New Year's Special Bundle from Krista found here.}

My resolution is to actually mail out these cards instead of keeping them in a pile,
and since I use plenty of birthday cards, this one came together quickly!
May is so much fun to color, her hair is just so beautiful and wispy.
I paired her with papers from Me & My Big Ideas Specialty Cardstock,
a gold charm, ribbon from Michaels, and a rub on sentiment from American Crafts.

Come on over and play along with us!
Gold and Black puts you in a glamorous mood. ;)
Hop over to the blog here to see the other beautiful samples by Ella's Girls,
this is also where you'll link up your work.

Have a wonderful start to your week, everyone,
thank you for coming by to see me!
