Digi Haven and would love to see you play along. Our theme this time is Green - Use Three Shades of Green (at least). We're being sponsored by Beccy's Place who also provided the images for this challenge. Check out our blog for all the rules and all the wonderful inspiration from the DT. Of course there's a prize package for the winner too.
I used Crocodile Baby for this card along with some patterned paper from "somewhere". As far as green......no telling how many shades are on here but I do know there's more than three. He's colored with Intense pencils to give him more of a gator-ish look and then I added faux stitching and twine to complete. Take note of those pink toenails on Mr. Gator - or actually I should say Ms. Gator with the pink bow and all too!
I'll enter this in the challenge at Pinspirational Challenges (inspiration photo) and Cards in Envy (Think Green Challenge).

Y'all really thought I was talking about The Cat in the Hat - right! Nope, today we have the cat in the egg! She's from Deedee's Digis and if you played along last month in the progressive challenge you've already received this image. If you didn't play along, it's ok because you can purchase this adorable set and enter this month - and then next month you'll receive a free image! This set not only has the cute cat but also a little hen......plus they not only have the line version like I used but also the pre-colored ones....plus sentiments galore. Are there enough "plus's" to all that! Stop by Deedees Digis and you can find the challenge and the shop all in one place!!! We'd love to see you enter this month!
Instead of using the pre-colored one this time, I decided to use the line version and color it myself in Copics. I also added a little strip of rhinestones to the egg and then used the Wink of Stella pen on the pink polka dots. She's framed out in a Lil Inker die and then popped up on the polka dot patterned paper. This will go to one of the granddaughters for Easter since it's loaded with pink and the rhinestones.
Not sure if I need to clean my computer screen or not - but all that white is motley looking to me! Reflection, dirty screen, bad photographer, or what! If you're seeing what I'm seeing I need ideas on how to fix that one!

Another challenge begins today at Tuesday Throwdown. Our theme is "tent topper card". We're being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who also provided the images of our challenge. Be sure and head on over to Tuesday Throwdown to see all the inspiration from the DT and enter for your chance to win a wonderful prize package.
I'll have to admit I've never made a tent topper card and was even a little unsure about what it was. I guess this is what it is though - and if not, it's done just the same. I used some old SU paper for them and then framed out the little bird in a Lil Inker stitched circle die. Matted that with a nestie and then added some white dots with my gel pen.
Looks like Spring is on the way now!!!!!!!
Be sure and check the Tuesday Throwdown blog.......and thanks for stopping by.............

Thought I'd squeeze this card in the middle of what's going to be a very busy week - card wise - for me.
In hindsight I see all kinds of things I wish I'd done different with this card - but what's done is done and it is what it is. I recently purchased some small feather dies and had to play around with them a little so smushed out some distress inks on my craft mat, misted them down a little with water, and then ran the feathers through it. I originally had three small feathers on here and it just looked funny - then had two small ones and that looked a little weird too......so ended up with one big and two little. I didn't want them to take away from the image too much and to just add some color. The big metal brad is from SU I believe and it reminded me of a battle shield like the Indians used to carry at times. Did you know that they were mostly made from buffalo neck!!! This one, however, is nothing but metal since I didn't have a buffalo handy so Jim could whip up one for me!! LOL! The image - from Mark's Finest Papers - is called Bold and Free. This was stamped in Momento and then I did some doodling around the sides (and may have gotten a little carried away with that)!
I'll enter this at Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge (Metal) and at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

This is a quick little card to give to Jim - just because. Since I dropped from the number 1 spot to number 2 spot around here when we got Rambo I figure he'll like it!! Ah, such is life I guess! He'll probably hang it on the wall so he can look at it every morning when he wakes up!
This actually was for a Retro Sketches challenge - last week. As always I'm about a day late and dollar short. I used a stamp set and die from Taylored Expressions, sponged in a few clouds, added a snip of "grass" and twine, popped up a heart covered in the Wink pen, and then mounted it on Kraft card stock.
I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) and Crafty Sentiments (love).
Hope everyone has a great weekend........and thanks for stopping by.............

I just love this little rabbit from Paper Smooches! He's definitely got the "look". I think he's cute for Easter, Valentines, Love, or just because I want to do a rabbit.
This one will just be a little love card. The image and sentiment (A Little Lovin) are from Paper Smooches and the paper is from a Simon Says Stamp kit. I punched out the tiny heart on the rabbits belly and then used the Wink pen over that for just a little shine. Last but not least - I couldn't resist and HAD to add the googly eyes!
This is for the Design's Draft (Sketch) challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks.
