Here is another entry for the Metallic Color Challenge category in the Moxie Fab World.  Aren't those color so pretty!  Here is my take.
The cardstock is from DCWV, Recollections and Bazzil.  I used an organdy ribbon along with some seam binding that I colored and a prima rose in the center.  The punches are from Martha Stewart and EKsuccess.  Last but not least one of my favorite sentiment from PTI.  If you want to play along with this challenge you have one more day to do so, click here to check it out!

January Papertrey Ink Bloghop

Hello!  This months challenge was to use a PTI stamp set that has yet to see ink or maybe collecting a little dust!  I bought Vintage Picnic last year and I love the set but for some reason I have only used it once so I got it out yesterday and here is what I created for the hop.
I plan on making a few more cards with this set while it is still out!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great one!

Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday - X's and O's

Here is my take on this weeks challenge!  I recently purchased the Critter faces from Peachy Keen and have been looking forward to using them!  I used my Gypsy to hide the eye contour but I couldn't hide the mouth due to the placement on the fish so I stamped the eye and then I stamped the little nook at the end of the smile.  I thought it was a cute idea to have the X's and O's used as bubbles coming from the fishes mouth.  If you want to play along this week click here to be taken to the challenge.  Have a great day!

Moxie Fab World: The Bright and Bold Challenge

So I have been spending the last few days trying to find color matches in my stash to match all of the colors in the six different color challenges on the moxie fab world.  Here is my take on the first color combo.

I love these bright colors!  The colored cardstock is from PTI as well as the ribbon and stamps. The white cardstock is recollections,  I took a pre made card and trimmed it to the size I needed.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great night.

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #16

This weeks Circle challenge is a sketch challenge. The theme this week is babies, so this was a fun one because I was able to get out some older photos of my baby ( he is now 6)  and make a layout of his 1st Birthday.  Here is my take on this sketch! 
The cardstock is Bazzil and the pattern paper is from Echo park, Sassafrass and Nikki Sivils.  I used Graphically Speaking for the "one" border cut and I used Sweet treats for the hat.  I punched a square and stamped the bow image and then added a button.  The stamp is from PTI.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

Cricut Circle challenge15

Good Morning! Here is my card for this weeks circle challenge. The guidelines for this week were to use white paint, metal and a snowflake cut. I used Accent Essentials and A Child's Year for the snowflakes and then I painted them with a white metallic shimmer paint which is kind of hard to see in the photo but in person it looks great! As I have mentioned before my husband is in the military and we moved from Mass. to Louisiana this last year. This was our first Christmas ever without snow! Today here in Louisiana we are getting freezing rain, sleet, and they say that it will change over to snow later today so I am really looking forward to a nice day at home watching the snow fall! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

My Pink Stamper DT submission

So The Pink Stamper is having a challenge on her blog for 2 open spots on her Design Team for 2011. I have never been on a design team and would love to be on one so I made a card to submit. The Challenge was to use your favorite cricut cartridge and her favorite colors which are Pink, Brown and Green. I love all of my cartridges so I don't have any favorites but I thought that this cute frog with his arms out was perfect for the sentiment stamp that is one from the "Everyday Life" set by The Pink Stamper. The other products used were cardstock from PTI and SU, Pattern paper from PTI , stickles and glossy accents. The ribbon is seam binding that I colored on my own. I also stamped the green paper using versamark. Thanks so much for stopping by and Have a great day!!
