Scary Smiles

It's been so long since I've done a Fun Friday I forgot how to do one - Almost!!  Hope this puts a smile on your face today.

The little friendly ghost is from Paper Smooches and that sentiment from Riley and Company.  FUN card that will be sent out this year for Halloween!

I'd like to enter this in Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) and in Darnell's NBUS challenge, which could have been several things but I selected 'none of the above'.

Thanks for stopping by.........and have a great weekend!

Chubby Chipmunk

What's more fun than a chubby little chipmunk!  Um......can't thing of anything better to put a smile on my face.  This little guy is from Deedee's Digis.  If you played along last month in our progressive challenge you've already received this cute set - which comes with two images and some wonderful sentiments!  If you didn't play along you can purchase it in the store for a special price (here) - then when enter your creation for this months challenge, you'll receive another digi set next month for free!

I used the pre-colored image along with some fall looking card stock in Kraft, Chocolate Chip,  and patterned paper.  The sentiment was printed on Kraft and then the button and twine added.

I'm not sure if Fall will ever get down here in Texas but I'm ready for it if it ever does - chipmunks and all!  I'm not even sure if we have chipmunks in this area since I've never seen one.  We are pretty well overrun with squirrels though.  So, I'll say that this looks like Rambo after the pecans fall.  He loves those things and always has one in his mouth.  He even carries them in and tries to bury them in the carpet!  Maybe he's part chipmunk!!!

Squirts For Squirts

According to the dictionary, "squirts" can either be "to  eject liquid in a jet" OR "a small or young person". The liquid used was some Distress markers ejected with one of those Tim Holtz squirting thingy's AND this is for one of the grand children for Halloween.  So, we have squirts for squirts!

I used Monster Mash from Lawn Fawn.  After stamping and masking the images, I also masked off the rectangle in the center and squirted it down with the Distress markers in some orange, green, and yellow type colors.  The squirts were colored with Copics and then I added a tiny google eye to the center squirt.  A couple of enamel dots were added using the Paint Pen.  A little doodling was done around the rectangle and the sentiment stamped.   A one layer card for Halloween!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Lawnscaping Challenges - one layer.

Poppies and Scrapy Land

Today is the BIG day when we start the new and improved challenge at Scrapy Land!  It's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge and all you have to do is make a card or project that incorporates one or more dies from the brands that Scrapy Land carries!     This is so easy to do because we all have dies and Scrapy Land carries over 40 different brands.  The challenge runs for 2 weeks and the winner will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to the store!  They have great prices there and also carry stamps, Copics, and other supplies.

The poppy die that I used for this is from Memory Box and can be found in the store here and it's called Prim Poppy.  I embossed the background with a wood grain folder and popped it up on dimensionals.  The poppies were added and then a strip of patterned paper.  I then added another die ( A Little Thanks) from Memory Box for the sentiment.  This was cut out four times and stacked.  The red gingham ribbon was added and it was complete.

Be sure and check out our blog and see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT,  see the rules for the challenge at the Scrapy Land blog, and enter!

Sweet Little One

It's Tuesday Throwdown time again!  Our challenge this week is to create a project with the theme "Sweet Little One".  Be sure and check out the blog for all the inspiration from the DT.  On sponsor, who also provided the images, is Robyn's Fetish.

I used cute little Lucy from Robyn's Fetish.  Her outfit is paper pieced and then I added some gems as buttons.  Even though her name is Lucy, I made the card with several colors of blue - little (and big) girls like blue too!  The sentiment is from SU.

It's Your Pig Day!

Looks like someone is having a pig day!!!  A quick "git 'er done" card using an image from Simon Says Stamp.  No glitter, sequins, or enamel dots........just paper, image, and a sentiment.  I did add some Glossy Accents to the balloon - that's why it's all motley looking.  I still haven't figured out how to get a good picture when glossy accents are involved.

That's going to do it for today.
