Good Morning!

Here is the new Color Palette and my card for this week's color challenge at the Outlaws.  I used my Creative Memories cutting system to cut a round card for the "Anything but a square card" challenge.  I am not thrilled with the outcome of my design, but to quote my sister, "It is what it is"!  My embossing folder is by Cuttle Bug and I used my Spellbinders Nestibilities leaf dies to make the leaves.  The flowers are from Prima and the little butterflies are a small punch.  My sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Hope you will join us this week!
The TTCRD "Anything Goes" Challenge is up!  Team A has some lovely inspiration cards posted using our sponsor, Sandi Samples images. 

My card using one of Sandi's adorable images.  Hope you will find the time to join both of these awesome challenges and share your creativity!

Busy and Outstanding Week

It has been quite the busy and wonderful week for me.  My daughter gave us a new beautiful granddaughter two weeks ago and I spend the week up with her and my SIL and adorable grandson.  I didn't get any crafting done needless to say.
Welcome Little Lucy
With big brother, Dean
At the Outlaws, the color challenge was picked by Laurian.  It is a beautiful photo and the colors are just delish. 

I made my big flower on the bottom right with a small leave punch.  I punched out many of them and glued them in a circle.  I put a ribbon fabric flower in the center and added a gem.  The ovals for my sentiment were cut with Creative Memories circle cutter.  This is my fave product of theirs and I use the system often.  I used some tiny letter stickers and attached some leaves.  The falling leaves were also punched with another small leaf punch and I embossed the background.

Color Challenge and TTCRD Challenge

 Hello friends!  This has been a busy week.  The Color Challenge is up at the Outlawz and TTCRD's "Anything Goes" Challenge is awaiting your creations.  I used our sponsor, Anji's Antics, to create my Color Challenge card.  It is my week to host, and I just love the colors and the inspiration photo.  I hope you like it too and it inspires you to make a project.  You have three choices in the challenge this week.  You can use flowers, veggies, or fruit on your card or project.  I used some tiny stamped flowers from an older Stampin' Up collection.

I used a sheet of Creative Memories gray mottled paper from their gray collection for my background and I colored my image with my Copic Markers.  I stamped my flowers on the paper and colored them with Prisma Pencils and added gems to the centers.  I added some acrylic rain drops and made my puddle with Glossy Accents.  My clouds were cut out from a 12 by 12 sheet of paper that came in one of the big packs of paperwith 180 sheets.  I stamped my sentiment using another Stampin' Up stamp.  I love this digi from Anji!  It is so adorable.
Team A, Anne, Sandi, Berni, Penny and myself welcome you to the "Anything Goes" challenge.  Our sponsor this week is Fitztown.  They have some beautiful images for your coloring pleasure.

I chose their beautiful Ballerina that I colored and cut out.
My border punch is by Fiskar and my flowers are a Tim Holtz die cut.  I wet them, "scrunched" them,  then stacked them and secured them with a heart shaped brad.  The paper is from Creative Memories and the sentiment is a stamp by Ippity.  As always, I used my Copic Markers.  Come on over and join us!
