Fall colors

Hi Everyone,

What a wonderiful day today, starting to get cool at night now and the change of seasons brings great fall colors. So this week at CMC we have a new challenge that is Anything Goes but must be Fall or Halloween colors!

Our sponsor for this challenge is CMC you can win a free copic class of your choice (which is awesome). I have taken them all myself and love everything about them, they are so informative and easy to follow along. Or you can choose a $20 Gift Cert to SCACD. Either way is great.

Here is my card

The image is a digital stamp from Kenny K Downloads. The sentiment I believe is from Graphicat. The tree is a Sizzix die, the cat is a Spellbinders die and the fence is a Memory box die.
 I colored her with copics:

Dress:  YR18, YR16, YR12
Hair and boots:  C9, C7, C5 and 110
Skin:  E11, E00, E000, R20

I hope you will enter something fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by.

Fancy Folds

Good Morning,

Today at Sweet Stampin' our new challenge is Fancy folds. Now this is anything with more than one fold. I have to say I was a bit intimidated by this one, but once I did a little research I had fun with it. So go on now and try it out.

We have some fabulous prizes from our weekly sponsor

Also our monthly sponsor.

This is what I created with an adorable stamp from Mo's digital pencil. I colored her with copics.

So I hope to see your creations at our challenge this week!

Life is what you make of it!


Hope everyone with children still in school, got them off without a problem. I miss those days with my girls. I used to love school shopping with them, getting the new school supplies, new shoes, etc. My youngest one I had to scrub clean of all her temporary tattoos she used to love and my oldest I had to get her nails clean as she loved to play with nail polish long before she was actually old enough to wear it hehe!

But we are at a new phase in our lives where they are all grown up and my oldest is a high school reading teacher and my youngest works in digital media advertising. So fast it all goes by, so whatever phase you are in right now love it!!!

Here is an adorable fall card I made using this sweet image from Mo's digital pencil.  I colored it using my copics. This card took forever because I had no idea where I was going with it. But it finally came together after many attempts.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

DP2 challenge:   Anything goes with a Mo's image
Digi Galore:  Anything goes
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge:  anything Goes

Disco Fever

Hi Everyone,

Today at CMC we have a new challenge:  Retro Fun. Our sponsor this challenge is Digi My World and they gave us these great images to work with. So come on and join the fun it can be any era of retro, you know 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's etc. I am not going to share which era I grew up in but I will say the 80's were my favorite because a lot of my major life milestones happened in the 80's.

Here is my card:

I colored her with Copics:

Hair:  E29, E25, E33, E50
Shirt:  B04, B02, B01
Shorts: R89, R85, R83, R81
Skin:  E11, E00, E000, R20

I used Stickles on her shirt for some sparkle, the die behind her is from Memory Box and the flowers are a punch.
I hope you will join us in this fun challenge. You have two chances to win as we also have a monthly winner.

Just remember to use alcohol markers or colored pencils while coloring.
