Day 25: do it yourself: i have sparkly pearls on the chicki'es coat!
Day 24: terrific ten: there are 10 pp squares there!
and now off to nap befor my drive!!!
This card is for 365, day 22: Movie Monday. Here is the poster I used for inspiration:
AND...in honor of my new gig at the Pixie Cottage, I threw in a Pixie cottage stamp!!! It was perfect for this challenge!!!! It is the actually 'pixie cottage' stamp...love it!!!
Lot's more blogging to do, but I think I'm gonna take a break and actually make something now!! Will get the rest posted later!!
thanks for stopping by
Here is the SSC challenge:
This next card is for 365 Day 27: Im touched. If I am understanding the concept, I am supposed to have 8 elements on card that overlap with at least 2 other elements...I hope I did this right, as I made a bunch of trees that all overlap with each other....does this cover me? LOL! The colors are from Simply Scrapping's Color challenge 4...yellow green, peach, and white! Yes...another kind of unconventional Christmas card, but, well, I'm determined to get them done early this year!!!
that's it for this post....more to come!
I made this card for Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog...challenge 3! The challenge is to make a fancy folded card! I have always wanted to try out an easle card, so, this was fun!!! Oh....and this card has a home in mind too...one of Alexis' classmates had to have her tonsils out, along with some other un-fun stuff for a 5 yr old....so we are going to send this to her....I hope it makes her feel better!!!
Now off to Alexis' soccer game! I hope she doesn't get sick today :) Thanks for visiting my blog!

Fashionista Friday #28 is up and running over at the Shoe! This week we are going GREEN! Find those hidden treasures around the house and recycle them on your projects! I turned around in my scraproom to the massive pile of boxes I have and ripped off part of one for my card base, I love the distressed look it gives!!! Oh...and I also was inspired for my card from a card out of Papercrafts magazine's 2010 Stamp It issue. Page 46, designer Kim Hughes used cardboard as a base with a piece of PP slanted over it...I loved the look and had to give it a try!! I don't know where to find Kim, but, well....credit where credit is due when lifting an idea on a card right? Thanks Kim!
Now remember to head over to the Shoe and go GREEN with us!

I made this card for 365 Day 23..Stencil it! I cant' find my stencils, so I decided to grab some grungeboard that I had used, and well, use the leftovers as a stencil. I used twinkling h2o's to paint the flowers through the 'stencils'. they looked great....until I added them to this card...then it just all went wrong! It is what it is...they can't all be perfect right?

Yes...I know, almost same title, but I actually had a stamp with that on it, and used it on this card!!! I almost forgot to post this actually, I had a horrible headache and went to lay down and well...almost was out for the night!!! I made this for 365cards, Day 20: Let's make some noise. Mine has keys dangling that jingle together for noise! I'd also like to enter this in blog my BFF showed me called Gingersnap Creations for their GC47 Color challenge: Copper, Ginger or Rust. I did my best to incorporate these colors into my card. Anyways...hoping this headache goes away, I think it is lack of caffeine, I haven't had any in 2 days....I did just make a pot of coffee so we shall see the verdict on that one soon! Thanks for visiting my blog today!!!
