Hello everyone! I am so glad you are here today because I have a fun card to share with all of you today. The Pink Elephant blog is hosting a really fun challenge this week. All you need to do is to design a card using these fabulous colors: red, blue, and green.  Here is my take for this challenge!

This week we have such a fabulous sponsor ~ Tiffany Doodles digital stamps.  This is such a cute image and I had a lot of fun coloring it. This one is called “Let them eat cake!”  Don’t you just want to eat it? It looks so yummy!

I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. After I colored the cake, I added little dots on it with my liquid appliqué. Then, I sprinkled some light green glitter on the tiny dots.  Oh, did you see the little cherry on top? That is just a small red peal ~ it was white, but I colored it with one of my red copic markers.  Oh, yes! The papers are from October Afternoon.  

Okay girls, my time is up! Hope you can play along with us this week at The Pink Elephant blog. Here is the link so you can stop by and see all the beautiful creations by the rest of the design team!
Thanks for stopping by… Have a wonderful day!

Thanksgiving Day Greetings!

Good morning everyone!  Just popping in to share a special card I made for all of you ~ my sweet blogging friends and followers.  As we all know, this week we will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day.  

ETA: This card made the top five at  Cupcake Inspirations  challenge blog.

This time, I wanted to try something new by making a vintage card. I have been saving this vintage image for a while and now I had the chance to use it. To decorate the card, I used a lot of my favorite embellishments!!  You all know how much I love lace, gems, glitter, and lots of layers on my cards. 

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
7 Kids College Fund ~ Give Thanks
 Cupcake Inspirations ~ challenge # 86
 Paper Pretties ~ Thank You

Thanks again girls for visiting! Have a wonderful and a happy Thanksgiving celebration …tons of blessings for each of you and your love ones!!! 

Have a terrific day everyone!

Change a Life - Teach a Child!!!

Good morning sweet friends!  I am so happy to be back at my blog and share with all of you the card I made for our new challenge over at The Pink Elephant blog.  This week’s challenge is to create a card using the following colors: red, yellow, and blue.  Here is what I made, I hope you like it!

Today’s card uses the beautiful image from Claudia and Company ~ Puddle Jumpers School Time Landon. This sweet and fun image was designed by our super talented friend Lori Boyd.  As usual, I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

The patterned papers I used on it are from the back to school collection by October Afternoon.  To finish my card I added a button, tied a piece of twine, and sprinkled a little bit of glitter on the sentiment matting.

Okay girls, I think that’s all for me today!  Now it is your turn to create a card and join in the challenge.  
Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to write your sweet comments, I truly appreciate your kind words!
Hope your day is full of beautiful surprises for you today…!!!
