A little orange, black and purple!

Purple is not my favorite color. I will put up with it, but when I was younger I had huge purple flowers wallpaper on my wall in my room and my mom's favorite color was purple and well, she and I just didn't hit it off too well the last few years of her life and so the big joke now is Becky hates purple!! LOL So anyway, I digress, Crazy 4Challenges blog's challenge was to use orange, black and purple. Ok, I don't have any purple paper! But wait, my niece Chrissy gave me all her scrapbooking stuff a while back and lo and behold there was purple. So, I stamped Hazel designed by Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps. I used some stamps called Swirls by Autumn Leaves on the purple and my Spellbinders Fleur de lis Nestabilities. I tied a little ribbon sideways!!

Monkey Toes!!!

At Unscripted Sketches this week was to use their sketch and also do a piggy back challenge which was to add movement to your card. I have this sweet stamp called Monkey Toes that I got from Whimsey Stamps and Monkey Toes is a Meljens Design stamp. So I cut a square out of the front of my card and decorated the front, so as you see the card, you see the monkey,
Then, when you open it, the monkey toes pop out!!!

Clean and Simple Kitchen Challenge at OCC

This weeks challenge at Our Creative Corner was CLEAN AND SIMPLE KITCHEN - to make a CAS (clean and simple) card or project featuring something you would see in the kitchen. I had pulled out my pickle jar stamp a couple days ago to make two cards to send to my two nieces who just announced that they are both expecting, so it was perfect for this challenge. I used my cuttlebug swiss dots folder and then some ribbon and 3 brads to offset the image. Of course, we don't know what either baby will be yet, so I used the green but as you can see I just had to get that little bit of pink in there with that one brad!!!

A couple of fun cards!!

Here are a couple of fun cards that I have done. Both are already in the mail and one has arrived at its destination. Splitcoast Stampers had a tutorial a couple weeks ago for a Twisted Circular Easel Card, so I decided to make one.
I used Whimsy Stamps Suzi with Bunny stamp, My nestabilities Tear Drop Circles, Die-namics Fancy Florish from My Favorite Things stamps and recollection papers from Michael's. Another card was for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I used Pure Innocence Cowgirl stamp set with my teardrop cirlces, Die-namics Country Charms, Recollection and My Minds Eye papers and twine from Ribbon Carousel.

So, I have this friend, who likes to do cards too.....

So, I have this friend, Emily, who likes to do cards too and she posted a card a week or so ago, here on her blog about a challenge from designed to delight and it was to use this one image of a cute owl sitting on pumpkins with the moon and Emily's was so cute, you can see it here, that I decided to use it myself and created this card.
The bat papers are from Carta Bella's All Hallow's Eve that I got from this great place called Pumpkin Spice. It is a sweet online shop here in WA and she also has a blog that I am really liking. I used my fleur de Lis Rectangles on the backside of the bat paper and my Scor-pal to make it look like a fence! Then I did the goofy grass and popped the image up on pop dots. I hope you like my card!! Thanks Em for sharing!! LOL

A few cards. . .

I have been making a few cards, but just haven't had time to upload them. So I thought I would share a few today.
Cissy picked this boot stamp up when we were at Michael's a while ago. So I think this sketch was for a challenge but I am not sure. I really like the look of this boot.
I used the Hazel from stamp by Sylvia Zet that I got from Whimsy Stamps. to make another candy box for a little girl for Halloween.
This cute Little Wizard Owl by Meljen's Designs Collection I also got at Whimsy Stamps. I used one of my new nestibilities that I got with my birthday gift card called Fleur de lis Rectangles. I added a couple start brads to it just for fun!! I will be back sooner with some more cards!! B
