Sketch Saturday #74-Happy Birthday Mouse

What a great sketch this week over at Sketch Saturday. This week we're up Challenge 74. I am glad I was able to play along since I'm still working overtime even put in a few hours yesterday, so I only get to catch up on the weekends and lately those are jammed packed as well. At first I didn't like how the cake came out, I was trying to match the paper, but now it's growing on me.

The colors I used are below. The Ciao is B60 which I finally ordered the sketch for. That and a few others should be here tomorrow... Can't wait for Mr. Postman...

As always, thanks for looking

Copic Challange # 14 - Black-Emma Cow

This was done for the Copic Creations Challange, this weeks color is black. This is a bi-monthly challange which can be found on my side bar. I've learned so much from this site it's unbelievable. Suzanne Dean gives some awesome video tutorials, since I am a visual person this is right up my alley and of course each time I watch, I order new copics. So I now have the Grey "C's" on there way. So this was done using the few grey's I have.. can't wait to get the new ones to really give this a try.. So thanks Suzanne for those wonderful tutorials that you make for us novices.

Cute Card Thursday-82-Spook Fest & Just Magnolia #27-Bright & Zingly

Wow, two challanges in one card.. I think this is a first. Over at Just Magnolia the theme is Bright & Zingy, well I think the greens are bright enough to cover that area, and over at Cute Card Thursday challenge # 82 is Spook Fest. So I used this adorable Tilda as my inspiration

The copics I used are above. Hopefully next time I'll get a clearer image, I'm trying and will get this right eventually, At least there not upside down this time

Penny Black Sketch - Buttons & Bows #70

This was done for the Penny Black Challenge. This week we were to use buttons and bows, I choose just to use buttons, I have tons and tons of them, and sad to say, I couldn't tie a bow no matter how hard I tried, I'd still be working on the bow. But maybe, the bow on the candy cane counts... It's a stretch, but it might just be enough. Anyway, this is an older image from Penny Black. An oldie but a goodie

Papers: Papers are from Heidi Grace
Extras: Frame from Heidi Grace, Buttons, Prima Flowers, Martha Stewart Branch Punch

Cheerleaders Rock

One of the girls at work asked me to make a cheerleader card for her god daughter who made the cheerleader squad at school. I lucked out since I do own a cheerleader stamp. This adorable image is from Whipper Snapper. The squad colors are green and white. Hope she likes it...

I will try and take a picture of the copics I've used. I see fellow bloggers do it and I know it comes in handy.. Next time though, I'll make sure all the colors are facing the right

My Adorable Faries

My birthday was a few days ago and Tammi made me a stunning Mini Accordian Folder. Inside were these adorable images. OMG!!..I've never fell in love with images the way I did with these.. aren't these the cutest faries you ever did see. I couldn't wait to use them and made two cards right away. This is for my BFF's birthday which is on Monday.

Simon Says Boo

Isn't this image adorable, I think it's an Ollie. I am not quite sure of the name since I received this in a swap. But finally took him out and put him to good use. Still have a few more Halloween cards to do. So hopefully I'll be able to crank them out this weekend.

Another quick post before I head off for work. Couldn't blog hop yesterday, so will try and catch up today. I didn't have internet for over 24 hours, they came to fix the problem only to recreate another one "No phones" Technician was at my house for at least 7 hours trying to fix the problem. Guess he needed OT. But now that they replaced Everything, and I mean Everything. Hopefully I will not have to go through this again. This was the 3rd incident since I upgraded to FIOS... and hopefully the last.

Thanks for looking

This week over at the House Mouse Blog the challange is to use buttons on your card. So I decided to use this image to get a start on my Halloween cards. I also received a package of goodies that I ordered earlier in the week and couldn't wait to use my new nestibilitie dies. There are so many possibilities with these. I used some left over Stampin Up Designer Paper, my Martha Stewart Craft Punch and my trustie Cuttlebug embossing folder.
