A Couple of Ratty Looking Cards

Well Rats!!!!!!!!  Pretty ratty looking cards for you today.

 Even I can't believe I'm finally playing along in the Twofer Challenge!  The theme is critters and critters is one thing I have plenty of in my stamp collection.  I've had this stamp set from  Katzelkraft for a while and just haven't inked it up until now.  So, it's the first time using the set and the first time playing in the challenge!

Both are very clean and simple and pretty well self explanatory as you can see, so I won't go into everything I did (or didn't) do. As I said - the rats are from Katzelkraft,  The sentiment on the one of the right is from Taylored Expressions.  Not sure where the sentiment on the left is from.

So anyway.........there you have it - a couple of rats!

Raking it Up - Not In

I think if I post more cards for fall or autumn, the weather will change and we'll start having cooler temperatures.  Don't want snow like some places are actually having now, but a little chill in the air would feel good.  Raking the leaves like this little guy is getting ready to do wouldn't feel so great though.

I used an image and sentiment from Darcie's and it's colored with Copics.  A little layering of papers, some twine, and it was done.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Cute Card Thursday (Autumn) and Pixie's Crafty Workshop (Snippets).

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

I'm so disappointed because you can't see this STUFF on my card!  Bummer!!!! 

I'm now considered a "city girl" since I live in a city now I suppose.  Not sure you can take the "country" out of me though.  Anyway, one of the advantages of living here is that a couple of the big box craft places are right down the road.  I've never had that luxury before so it's a little different knowing if I run out of something, I can just run down the road and get it.  Before I'd make about one trip every couple of months to the city and stock up on things. 

ANYWAY.......back to business........I was in one of the places the other day and found this STUFF.  I'm sure everyone reading this has a can of it and has used it before but I'd never even seen it.  I guess I was so busy trying to stock up on things I never even noticed it.  

Glitter Dust!!!   Oh my!  That stuff is wonderful.  I finished my very, very, VERY simple card and decided I'd try it.  Took it all outside and sprayed away (Rambo looks like he's ready for a night of partying with glitter all over him too)!!!!!!  Even though you can't see it in the picture, it really did make it shine. Nice!  

As far as the card goes..........the usual..........distress inks, sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, some clear sequins, and that glitter dust.

A Little Boo and Fantastic News!

First of all -  FANTASTIC news!  I was asked to be on the design team at Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge blog and of course said a big YES! It's a wonderful challenge blog and I'm so excited and honored to be part of it.

We don't have a sponsor this time but PIP will be offering  a wonderful prize in the form of a gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil.    Fabulous images to choose from  as you well know.  It's an Anything Goes challenge and we'd love to see what you create.

Halloween will be right around the corner, so I've used one of Mo's images for my card today.  It's colored with Copics and the sentiment is from MFT.  I added a little patterned paper and twine and the card was done.

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and enter Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge.

A Couple of Horses - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

It's that time again - another critter challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  We'd love to have you join in on our challenge - just make sure you have some type of critter on your card.  We're being sponsored this month by QKR who also provided us with some wonderful images.

First up  - all in grays and blues.  I LOVE this image for a masculine card.  I didn't even attempt to color it because I think it's so dynamic looking just as is.  I did run a little bit of green over the grass but that was it.  It's framed out super simple and the large silver circle star was added with some twine.

I'd like to enter this card in the QKR Stampede Challenge - Anything goes

Since I'm still trying to do more than one card with either a stamp set or an image, I have this pretty horse framed out with some green plaid and solid green paper.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  Guys need to be told they're fabulous every so often I think.

That's it for today, but be sure and check out 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and enter your card or project.

Penguin Happenings

This is not your typical little  "happy feet" type guy I'm afraid.  He reminds me of the day after Christmas when you're not even sure how you made it through the last two weeks - and wondering what exactly you're suppose to do next.   Or maybe he's just thinking about all the money he spent at Christmas and realizing he's going to pay for it all now!

This cute image is from Rubbernecker Stamps.  Isn't he the absolute cutest penguin ever!  The sentiment is from MFT and the snowflake from Lawn Fawn.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches where they're celebration their 400th sketch!  I'll also enter it in Rudolph's Day Challenge for August.

Summer's Done?

I'm not sure if this gal is heading to the beach - or leaving the beach!  If she lives in Texas, I'm sure she heading that way though.  Way too hot here (we hit 109 the other day) to even think about anything other than a little sand and surf.   I know winter is coming, but we still have a few months to go around here.

Lots of layering on this card for whatever reason. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is colored with Copics.  I just wish I could get a tan like that!  As it is, looking at me in a bathing suit is like looking at a ghost - and it not even being Halloween!   Anyway........a fun card to give you a smile.

I'll enter this in the Tuesday Throwdown challenge - stripes.
