Critter Sketch Challenge #149

Hello my dear friends!  

How was your weekend? 

Saturday I taught a Cricut Class at A Memory to Scrap in Broken Arrow.  We all had a great time and I think everyone learned a trick or two.  I also worked on my cards for my February card class at Serendipity in Tulsa.  

As a matter of fact, I am posting one of them today for my Critter Sketch Challenge.  

I love the bright colors of this particular paper.  It it also from the Hopscotch collection from Fancy Pants.  

The flower is made from sheet music and Lemon Zest Dylusions Spray Ink.  I absolutely LOVE these sprays.  I am trying to incorporate them more and more in to my projects.  

We hope that you have had a chance to check out our fabulous January sponsors. They both have a wide variety of digital images that suit all levels and styles of crafters.  Please make sure you support them as they are the ones who provide the prizes we are give out every month.

Talk to you later... 

Until then...Be safe and Create!

FCCB Challenge #145 Sound of Music

Happy Monday!  I am so glad to be able to write this post to you today.  I have had the flu and am finally feeling better.  Whew I hope I NEVER get that again!  

Our challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to use something pertaining to music on your creation.  I was working on my cards for my class at Serendipity and decided to incorporate the music theme.  

I used the Hopscotch collection from Fancy Pants for the patterned paper.  

Also included are Coordinations cardstock, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Prima flowers and vintage sheet music.  

The base of the card was cut from CTMH Artiste cartridge and the music note is from Quarter Note.  

I hope  you take the time to stop by FCCB
and link up your musical creations.  

Talk to you later... 

Until then...Be safe and Create!

FCCB Challenge #143 - Tag You're It!!

Hello Bloggers!  
Here it is Monday again.  Those Mondays keep coming and we keep challenging you over at 

This week's challenge is to make a project with a tag on it.  Tags are really HOT right now.  Good thing since it's cold outside.....LOL (I know corny)

Here is what I came up with.....

 I have a confession to make....I can tell you a few details about this card, but I used so many products and techniques, I can't remember them all.  I kids will be putting me in a home soon.  The card base was cut from Artiste cartridge.

 I know I used Tim Holtz products, a lot of them.  
I stained the seam binding with Faded Jeans Distress Stain.  That is one of my new favorite things to do. 

 I also used a lot of Distress Inks.  Some Perfect Pearls, dry embossing, heat embossing and stamping. 

Another of my new favorite things are the Metallic Distress Stains.  Oh my goodness! Beautiful!
Don't forget to take a look at the rest of the DT projects.  I'm sure they will have many more details for you.  Also, link up for this week's challenge to win a prize from Vintage Street Market.
Talk to you later... 

Until then...Be safe and Create!
