Christmas card challenge week 12

Happy Sunday!!
Hope you all had a great weekend.

This weeks challenge is Paisley...
and let me tell you it was a challenge for me.
You can go here to play along.
The only paisley thing I own is a couple of stamps
so, I made my own background paper...
and this is what I came up with.
Not really loving this card...
I may try it again using a couple of different techniques.
All the stamps used are CTMH.

Hope you join us for this weeks challenge!
would love to see what you all create.

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!!
Hope you all have a fabulous day
filled with lots of love!

Here is a card I made for my Husband...
I have had this cute little image from the Greeting farm
for a while now and never inked her!
I think she is sassy cute!

And of course, I tried out a different
technique for coloring her hair.
I am getting used to and loving my black copic!
I used a few scraps to make this card.

Enjoy your day and Happy crafting!

CHA - fun

Happy Monday!

I finally got around to coloring this cute image...
I didn't get to make her at CHA. I was lucky enough to
get a kit to bring home and make (thanks Leanne!)
Isn't she cute!? I think I'm going to order her.

I don't know what paper line this is...everything was
in the kit cut and ready to go all I had to do was
color and put together.

I have been playing around with coloring black hair...
I have been trying different techniques (I need lots of help)
I am starting to feel a little more comfortable with
my black copic!!
I am really loving the way her hair came out on this
card (I wonder if I can do it again?!)
I will be trying this technique again...I have one
more image to color from CHA that I didn't
finish (it was a cute little milk carton...the
carton didn't make it home! so I will be
using my image for a card)

Enjoy your day Happy Crafting!

Finally a two page layout!

Well, I finally got around to scrapbooking!
I seem to have lost all my mojo!
I've sat in my scrap room the last two
days...trying to be creative.
I've have a lot of projects going just don't know
where to start and no mojo!
I pick something up and put it down and move
on to the next and the same thing!!
What do you do when/if that happens to you?

This layout is for my nephew...his birthday was
a few weeks ago. He wanted me to make his
cupcakes (loves my cupcakes)
He plays soccer so of course we went with that theme.

I used some old CTMH sports paper.

I used my cricut to cut out the stars and the banner
across the bottom.

I am hoping to find some mojo!!
PLEASE send me any extra mojo you may have laying
around that you are not using.

~Hugs, Pat

Christmas card challenge week 10

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

This weeks challenge is create your own background.
You can go here to play along.

I was lucky enough to go to CHA this year with
Sparkle Creations rubber stamps.
(thanks a billion Sparks!! had a GREAT time)
I purchased this cute little polar bear and sentiment
stamp from Art Impressions (to be released soon)
the snowflake and Christmas tree are from CTMH.

I created my background using the snowflake stamp and
three different color inks. I stamped the tree
on white card stock and cut it out the polar bears are
pop dotted (you can really see the detail in this photo)
and of course colored the images using my copics.

Have a crafty day!!

~~Hugs, Pat
