Slaying the Birthday - 2CCC


Time once again for the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  Our sponsor for this month is The Paper Shelter. Come on over and join in on our challenge.  All you have to do is have some type of critter on your card or project.  The winner will receive a wonderful prize from our sponsor.

I used My Little Dragon that was provided by The Paper Shelter.  I colored the image with Copics.  Actually I colored it TWICE with Copics.  After completing the coloring the first time I got the bright idea to do a little sponging around the oval.  Looking good.......until my hand slipped and distress ink waxed out the entire image almost!  Ugh!  So, grabbed the Copics and started all over again.  The brown paper behind the image looks like it has a black design......actually it's gold foil and really pretty.

Thanks for stopping by.....and have a great day.

Chicken In - 2 CCC

Time for another challenge a 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  We're being sponsored this time by none other than QKR!  Cute, cute images!  Create a card or other project with a critter on it and come on over and enter for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from QKR!

I used this cute chicken image from QKR for my card.  She just sorta looks like we all feel on some days.....  I used some Kraft cardstock along with patterned paper in a wood grain look.  Inside the circle was stamped with a chicken wire background stamp.  The image was colored with Copics.

This chicken looked like me last week after coming out of the dentist office.  Not sure if I was up or down - pretty sure it was mainly down though - and a WHOLE LOT poorer.  I still have my original teeth though so there's always that!     I guess I'm actually "chicken in" again too since I haven't been over here since last month.  I'm still on my blog break and enjoying it.  I'm staying busy and believe it or not, I haven't been arrested for bad behavior even one time.  Pretty proud of myself for that one - for SURE!   I'm missing all your wonderful creations though.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and have fun entering our challenge.  I'll see everyone next month for the October challenge.  The year is flying!

Frogs are So Cool - 2 CCC

It's time again for another challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Come on over and enter for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from our sponsor for this challenge, Sheep Ski Designs.  All you have to do is to create a card or project that includes a critter on it.  FUN!  

I have used this cute, cute frog from Sheep Ski Designs on my card today.  I colored him/her in Copics and Polychromo pencils.   I sponged in a few clouds and then used a very old Simon Says Stamp sentiment on it.  

The entire time I was coloring this little guy, I was wishing that I was out on some remote pond just floating away on a lily pad with not a care in the world.  Not that I'd really fit on a lily pad - BUT you get the message anyway.  

How about with a yellow flower too............. 

Be sure and come on over and enter our challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Bear-ly Here for 2CCC Challenge

It's that time again..........time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  We're being sponsored this time by Jan's Digital Stamp Shop.  Come on over and play along for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Jan's shop.  (By the way.....Jan has a sale on Christmas images going on in her shop right now.  Be sure and check it out!)

This is a bear.......a bear for Christmas - or actually just any kind of bear.  I used mine for a Christmas card though.  Added a little embossing, some Christmas patterned paper, a couple of tags from a Newton's Nook die and a bit of ribbon.  I also used the Pre-Colored version of Jan's image.  

Now, the reason I'm saying I'm bear-ly here..........All is good and I'm "here" just fine, but.........I'm going to be taking a break from blogging.  This will be the only DT I'm staying on (mainly because I'm co-coordinator and Connie said I wasn't allowed to leave just yet)!  I did drop the other design teams and am sad about that because both Pammie's Inky Pinkies and Jan's Digi's are both wonderful design teams to be on.  I just feel like I have to take a break from it all right now and it wasn't fair to ask Pam and Jan to let me disappear for a while.  I've been feeling like everything I do lately is looking the same so guess I'm a little burned out now and need a break!  I'm sure I'll be back soon and also probably having all my cards look alike once again!!!!!  Oh well............
But, I will be back on the first of each month for my card for the 2 Crafty Critter Crazy Challenges so it's not like you'll never see me again.  Otherwise I just won't be around in Blogland.  I will probably be posting a few cards on Instagram so check over there ever so often and you may see me.   

Thanks for stopping by........

Smiling Plants - PIP Challenge

I don't know about your plants, but the only time mine smile is when they get water and sunshine.  Of course, I smile then too.  

Time again for a Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge and we have something a little different for you this time.......A Clean and Simple challenge!  Come on over and enter your clean and simple project or card for a chance to win a wonderful prize from our sponsor, Newton's Nook!

I'm embarrassed to say how many times I had to take this picture and it still looks a little funky to me.  After getting an actual pain in the neck from it all, I called it a day and said it is what it is.  I used an older set of Newton Nooks stamps called Newton's Day Dream.  I stamped, colored, and added twine.  The little bird was stamped, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals.  

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and enter our Clean and Simple challenge.

Happy Flowers

I probably went a little overboard using this stamp from Simon Says Stamp, but I was having fun!   I bit the bullet and bought a set of watercolors from Altenew - and I'm in love!  I don't know if I'm any better using watercolors but I'm trying and actually even liked the looks of these cards using them.  Here's a couple of cards I've made so far.  I'm still a work in progress........

 The strip sentiments are also from Simon Says Stamp and they're already done - you just cut them apart and pop on the card.  Easy!

Thanks for stopping by............
