Clowning Around

Hi all,

I was playing around with this digi stamp that I picked up awhile ago. I colored this one day while on vacation actually. We were in San Diego and in the evening while we are just hanging out at the hotel ususally watching tv at that point, I pull out some images and start coloring until I get sleepy. I pulled out this one and loved all the purple. I thought it turned out really pretty. I finally sat down to create a card with it. Here is what I came up with....

I added lots of Stickles to make it sparkle and I think that made the card.

I entered this card into the following challenges:

Daisy Doodles- Challenge is Anything goes with a Digi

One Stop Craft- Challenge is Ribbons and Lace

Sketch and Stash- Challenge is the sketch

Hope you like it....Have a great day! Julie

Fairy Tales

Hi all,
I saw the preview to the Snow White based movie called Mirror, Mirror, I can't wait to see that. It looks sooooo good. Julia Roberts plays the bad witch. Has anyone else seen the previews? What do you think?
Anyways, a good way to kick off the "Fairy Tale" theme of this card. I chose this cute little frog just waiting to be kissed by his princess..... the sentiment says "Once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything". I thought it was kind of fitting since the frog is waiting for his princess to kiss him to become a Prince.
I entered this little guy into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter- challenge is Spots and stripes
Our Craft Lounge- challenge is Fairy Tales
Card Positioning- sketch challenge
Hope you like my little prince, lol.....
Until next time.

Dear Santa.....

Hi all,
The holidays are coming so fast. Are you starting to get your Christmas cards and shopping done? I am not, I figure this year I will be pretty far behind and stressed, lol. Oh, isn't that every year????
I made this card for the Wags 'n Whiskers challenge. The challenge is Black with ribbons or pearls.
On the inside of the card it says "All I want for Christmas". I love this Santa stamp....
Hope you like it. Hope you are getting a good head start on your holiday planning.

Fall Inspired "Home" Embellishment

Hi all,

I was inspired by all the "Fall" colors and festivities going on around town. This is a new town for us and we ran into a temporary outdoor ice skating rink set up at the mall. It will be there until Feb. I thought that was the coolest thing....they never did anything like that in Arizona.....

Anyway, I put together this nice little fall scrapbook embellishment or it could be a card topper. With a simple title of "Home". I think this would look awesome on a scrapbook page for a new home.

Embellishment is for sale here.

Hope you all enjoy your day....Julie
