Raise the Bar Guest Designer!

Good Morning!

             I was so excited when I got my Guest Designer spot on Raise the Bar challenge blog.  I really like the sketch that Miss Joni gave me to do.  I really enjoyed it!  I did bright colors because my mom told me Miss Joni likes orange, so that led me to use bright colors.  I found this really funky paper in my mom's stash - it's really cool!!

Well, I hope you enjoy my card.  I want to thank Miss Joni for allowing me to be a Guest Designer.  Thank you for stopping by! See ya

Tuesday Morning Sketches #47

Good morning!  It's another Tuesday so it's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches.  My mom bought me this image from our sponsor Meljen's Designs and I think this turtle is soooo cute.  Here's my card.....

I colored the turtle using Prismacolor markers and used this really cool paper that was two sided.  I cut out the turtle and put him on the base with pop-dots.  I think I did really good using all the colors in the paper, too.  I hope you like my card and I hope you join us at Tuesday Morning Sketches - all ages are welcome.

Thanks for stopping by!

I {heart} Challenges

Hi Everyone,

Hollyanne is at school right now but I promised her I would post this card for her so she doesn't miss any deadlines that may be close.

I am really proud of my daughter for attempting color blocking.  It's not easy to get measurements right and she did a pretty good job for her first try.  She's participating in a couple of challenges with this card.  The first challenge, the sketch, was provided by Sketch Girl and the color combo is from Colour Create.  Her image is a digi image from Two Scoops Rice, I believe.  She found it in a stash of images that she has.

She added black which I think is quite striking.  The color on the bottom is the lightest color we could find that would still fall under Aqua.  I hope you enjoy her card.  Thank you for stopping by.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #46

Good Morning,
           Another Tuesday Morning Sketches card that I made to share with you.  The challenge this week is not a sketch, but to use your favorite color combo and glitter.  Glitter is one of my favorite things!  I kinda went overboard with it, but oh well.

I used a really cute fairy from our sponsor Busy Beauties Boutique.  As you can see my favorite color combo is white, brown and blue.  I hope you enjoy my card.

More Challenges

Hello Everyone,

I started this card last week when The Pink Elephant's challenge was yellow and buttons - but I never got to finish it and I forgot what sketch I was using - so tonight I was back to the beginning.  This time I used the sketch from The Pink Elephant and the color challenge from Raise the Bar (gray, yellow and white).

This was a fun card to make.  My favorite part is the frog.  But I have to admit that my Mom did help me with the idea of the lily-pads, water and sky.  I got my first Copics lesson.  I came up with the sunbeams and the idea of the button frame.

Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my card.  See ya later! :)

Hello everyone,
        I just got off school and my mom said I better get some of my stuff posted or I will miss out on the challenge.  I made this card for the Anyone for Anya challenge which was to put numbers on your card.

Is this not the coolest card ever?!  I think I did a pretty good job on it.  My mom didn't have any number stamps so I had to use pearls and I think the 4 came out really good.  I really like this challenge because I got to use Anya stamps which are some of my favorite stamps.  Hope you enjoy my card.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #45

Good Morning,
             It's that time again, there's another new sketch on my mom's challenge blog, Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The crosses in the back were kinda challenging - I guess that's why they call it a challenge.  But this challenge I really liked because I found really pretty paper that had crosses in the back and that gave me a great idea.  Check it out...

I really liked the image, my mom and I used the same set from There She Goes stamps, who is our sponsor this week.  I hope you join us!  Thanks for visiting me and leaving me comments.

Challenges, Challenges and more Challenges

Good Morning,
        I had a really fun time crafting with my mom this past weekend.  We went blurfing for some fun challenges to try - these are two of them that I did.

For this first card I played along with Just Cute Bears challenge to create a multi-fold card.  I watched a couple of You Tube videos on how to make a Spring card.  My mom helped me, but she kept getting irritated with it.  I think it came out really pretty.  I made this for my mom for Mother's Day.

This next card I made to play along with Just Us Girls which was to make a pocket card.

I made a diaper fold card following a tutorial on Splitcoast.

Here's the inside of the card.  The name is kinda weird but it does make a good card.

Thanks for stopping by!

A little boy named Morgan

Good Morning everybody.  Happy Mother's Day!

I had a great time last night hanging out with my mom in the craft room.  I made 3 or 4 cards for challenges.  The one I am sharing with you today is for a challenge blog that belongs to a 9 year old boy, Little Hands do Crafts.  His challenge this month is Nature.  So I went with flowers, I hope that counts.

I kinda went overboard with the flowers, but I think it looks good.  I was very surprised that a 9 year old can make so beautiful cards.  This boy is named Morgan, check out his blog, he's got a lot of good stuff.
