Thinking of you

I made this card for my mother-in-law. I always feel bad because she doesn't have computer access like most of our family does and I kind of leave her out on pictures and updates and stuff so I sat down and made her a card, sent her a camera full of pictures, and wrote her a letter.
I used a Whiff Of Joy stamp I got when I was at the stamp convention. I love angels and I thought he was adorable.
Of course he's colored with copics and his wings are filled in with stickles for glitter. I used two brads from SU!
The paper is SU! except the DP which is from one of my DCWV stack packs. I also used some prima flowers and some Martha Stewart ribbon.

Crafty Critter Blog group Challenge 10...Ildi Co. day!

Okay, I think I got it right today! This is my challenge card for our blog group. Also since today is my Ildi day I decided to use one of their images. This is cuddles leaves. He/she is pretty darn cute huh!

Here were the rules for our challenge:

1. Use card sketch #246 from SCS.
2. Use the color purple.
3. Make it Fall themed.
4. Use at least 1 embellishment.

It's a fall's the right has purple in it....check....and at least one embellishment....check! Yes, got it right!

Cuddles was colored in with my copics and then for some know I love sparkle...I used some stickles on the rake and the leaves to highlight the colors of them.

I'm not sure where the DP comes from but it had purple in it so I thought it would make my life easier trying to incorporate that color. I used some brads that glitter and just some regular cardstock. Pretty simple!

So we had a great challenge that Melanie put up for us for our blog group. Here were the rules of the challenge:

1. Use card sketch #246 from SCS.

2. Use the color purple.

3. Make it Fall themed.

4. Use at least 1 embellishment.

Crap...why don't I ever read directions fully! This card totally doesn't fill all the qualifications. Dang it, I guess I will have to work on something and post it tomorrow.

Anyway, this is a card I made using the sketch at least!

It was a card I made for my friend for her birthday. She's not much into pink...I know...I hang out with someone that DOESN'T like pink! So I used mostly blues and just a pinch of pink!!! I love the bella image You are #1.

For Ms. Bella I colored her in using my wonderful copics and I paper pieced the number 1. I thought that was a cute idea. I know...sometimes I have cute then I add some sparkly stickles and that was that!

Thanks for looking....I'll be back tomorrow with my "real" challenge card and it's also my Ildi day so I think I'll combine them both!!!

Last night I worked on my card for Monday/today and here is what I came up with. I just love the cuddles halloween...he's so cute!
I used SU! in black for the background, then a piece from my DCWV for the DP...those dots are making me crazy....SU! orange and then I used an SU! stamp to stamp Happy Halloween, some eyelets, copics, stickles, and jewel embellishments.
