Stella is at it again

Hi there everyone,

Can you believe it is the end of August. Bring on the fall. Well it seems within the next week if not already the kids will be back in school.

It is time for another challenge over at the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz. I hope you will join in. This is the last chance to enter to try and win our prize from our sponsor this month Guylou.

This is a easy challenge. We have twist to the challenge if you like. It is an anything goes but we also have the new calendar available for you to use. We are winding down.

Today I bring you my calendar page for September. You got it Bugaboo Stella. She is just a hoot.

I have colored her in with my copics. The paper is from DCWV. It is a very old pack and I think this was the last piece of the blackboard type of paper. I am bummed about that.

I can't wait to finish our calendar and make a slide show of it. I have been having fun making it.

Don't forget to stop by and pick up your calendar page and join in on the fun.

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments on my cards and videos that I post. I appreciate you stopping by and having a look.

New Video

Hi there everyone,

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by

Diva Mermaid

Happy Tuesday,

The week is moving right along. Today brings another challenge over at Through the Craftroom Door Magazine.

We have a lot of changes going on. If you have followed us for a while you will know that we now have two DT teams. So we will have new inspiration up every week. And our newest change is one that I am sure many will like. We are now going to an Anything Goes format. We already had our cards made up for a Diva theme before the change was decided so your card can be Diva or Anything Goes related. Please make sure you follow the rules to participate in the challenge.

On to my card. I am using one of our sponsors this weeks image. Crafts and Me is our sponsors this week. This cute mermaid is one of their images.

I have colored her with my Copics. I also got to use my new Cameo for the pretty lacy background. I love it!

The little embellishments are puffy stickers from our local dollar store. I thought they fit very well.
Let me tell you this sweet image had a lot of hair to color, good thing I like coloring hair LOL...

I sure hope you will join in on the challenge this week. Below are our sponsors. Please stop by their shops and have a look around.

Happy Sunday,

It's a rather blah day here. Clouds and raining a little. But all in all a great day for crafting. I am going to work on some project today that I have been wanting to get done.

So this Saturday bring a new challenge over at MayzyArt. Yup this will be a fun one. It's Fluffy. So you interpret how you feel is best. I am using Halloween Cat. I kind of modeled her after the Broadway show Cats.

I was really happy with out her leopard outfit came out.
I have colored her with my Copics.

The die cuts were done with my Slice and the Spook Alley card. However my card is not longer working. I have only had it a couple of months. I have tried contacting Making Memories but have not gotten any kind of response. What a shame. I like the card but I now have a Cameo, so I will be using it instead.

My papers are by Pink Paislee in the Phantom collection.

I hope you will join us for our challenge and have some fun with it.

Back to School

Hello everyone,

Can believe it! Almost time for the new school year to start. It may have already started for some. So with the new challenge over at Through the Craftroom Door Magazine. You guessed it the theme is Back to school use number or alphabets. Now you will see things a little different because we are now broken up into two teams. This way each team will be posting each week rather than all twice a month. I think this is going to be fun doing it this way. Still great prizes to win.

Let me tell you a little about my card.

My card is made using a Bugaboo image. Bugaboo is one of our sponsors for this challenge. I chose this digi because it had the chalk board and allowed be to put the magazines name in there.

My papers are from a paper pad I got from Michaels, it had all kinds of papers in it for just about every season. One of the sheet had a bunch of rulers on it so I used that and cut up strips of the ruler and layered on to the other papers.

I colored the image using my copics. I little ABC are glitter stickers.

A little bakers twine for some texture and I thought it came out cute.

I mentioned that Bugaboo is one of our sponsors but we also have Floppy Latte as well. You can click on the links below to check out their shops.

Silly Dance

Hello Everyone,

I am re-posting this as the challenge is up on MayzyArt blog. Due to an unexpected family loss with Mayzy she had to delay the challenge. But guess what you check all my fellow DT gals fun creations over at Mayzy's blog. Mayzy we all love you are so very sorry about your loss.

Today bring a new challenge over at MayzyArt. The theme this time around is Silly. Hummm what could you do with that. Me, well I saw the Halloween mummy and thought of The Bangles song Walk like and Egyptain. So I copy the image three times and lined them all all.

Now the hard part was coming up with some papers that would go with the image. Never fear I found some digi papers that worked.

Trying to get the right color for the mummy cloth was kind of weird but I ended up using a warm grey then went over it with a very light E color to give it a little more of a dusty/dirty look. I distressed the edges of the white card stock to match that dusty/dirty look.

I didn't want to do too much because I didn't want it to take away from the color and sash I did in a gold tone.
I hope you will join us at MayzyArt. Mayzy will choose one winner by and another winner she will choose herself from any entries that have used one of her images. She just keeps adding more and more images to her shop. Oh did you see she has added a Christmas image for anyone wanting to get a jump on starting those Christmas cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.

It's a Circus/Carnival

Hi there,

Can you believe it's August? I guess the kids will be back in school soon.

Do you have any Carnivals in town? How about a Circus?

Over at The Outlawz Copic/ProMarker challenge it is just that Circus/Carnival. So give us your best Circus or Carnival images colored with your Copic or Promarkers.

Today I am using one of MayzyArts images. I really thought this was a fun one. The papers are from a DCWV pack I got at Michaels. I thought the flags and banners were perfect as the background.

I have colored my image with Copics. I added a bit of glossy accents to balloon.

A little bakers twine which I haven't used in a while to add a little more color to the card.

This month challenge sponsor is Guylou. Stop by her site and check out her large line of digital stamps.
I hope you will stop over and join in on the challenge this week.

Tic Tac Toe

Hello everyone,

It's time for our first challenge of the month. This month we have Guylou as our sponsor. She is offer a gift certificate to her store to our winner.

The them this week is Tic Tac Toe. You pick 3 items in a row on the Tic Tac Toe board and use them on your card. My choices were die cuts, glitter and pearls.

I have colored her with my Copics. My die cut is from Cherry Lynn. I wanted to give it a little more girly look to it so I added some lace that I colored with my little air brush set for my copics. I think my can of air is running out.

I added glitter to her dress underskirt and her one shoe
My pearls are from

I put a little glitter pen on her hair bow.

I hope you will join us this week. Thanks for stopping by.
