Challenge #111 At Papercutz

I think I know why they call these challenges! This was one that was really hard for me. This weeks challenge at Papercutz is called Shake, Rattle and Roll. You are to make a Halloween card, layout, or papercraft using a digital, stamped, or cricut image of a skeleton or skull and crossbones, but make it CUTE not Spooky!!! Not sure how to make a cute skull and crossbones, but this is my card this week. I used the cartridge Rock Princess for it and I used paper from Hobby Lobby and bazzill cardstock and pearls and gems from Kaiser Crafts. Join us this week and let us see your cute creations!!

I got a new set of stamps I love!

I had to have this cute set of stamps from over at GinaK's called Holiday Basket! It has some really cute flowers to add to this adorable basket! I just had to do a couple quick, and I mean quick cards. Not much thought just wanted to play a little. I used colored pencils and blending pen for the coloring. Sorry pictures are not so great, my lighting is not good today for some reason.

Got a little crafting done

This has been one of those weeks you do not wish on anyone. My brother-in-law passed away suddenly at age 46 in his sleep and it has been very emotional for the family. I like to deal with grief in a positive way by crafting and was able to do a few projects this week. I have a friend who is a local priest and he loves when I give him cards to send and he let me know that he needs some more cards, so I am busy making him some. Love that I can use scraps and not waste anything. Here is some things I made the the last couple days.

Challenge #109 at Paper Cutz

This week at PaperCutz, the challenge is to use a digital or cricut image of a ghost using only the colors of white, black, orange and purple! I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge for the box and the tag and the ghost are from PaperDolls. I am loving the new CTMH and it is such a great cartridge and well worth the money for all that comes with it. If you would like to have this cartridge and I have a great friend who sells CTMH and will have her get in touch with you. I plan on making some of these for some special little people. Great for your kids school treats too. Join us this week so I can enjoy all those cute little ghost projects you create!!!

Designers Challenge this week!

Happy Friday, y'all! This weeks challenge over at Papercutz is a Designers Challenge and I am lucky enough to be the DT member that got to pick the challenge for this week. My challenge is to make a zoo related card, layout, or papercraft using at least 2 animals, dimension and bling! My project is a page for my granddaughters first trip to the zoo. I do have the second page started but was not completed when I prepared this post. I made the heads on the animals dimensionized and added bling and stickles to the title. I used Animal Kingdom and Create a Critter for my project. I also used new Bo Bunny papers and bazzill cardstock. Please join us this week and let the wild animal in you take over!!!
