Embellish Magazine Color Challenge....featuring birds!!

Here is my card for this week's EmbellishMagazine's Color Challenge
featuring the use of birds. I decided to use this great paper from a Cosmo Cricket tablet that I just that the colors were perfect for this challenge and that the one sheet of dp had birds on it!! Everything I needed right there together!! I created a crocheted rose using the new Chantilly 1/2 Crochet Trim from Stammpin Up....added a brown brad for the center and tied a knot to create the leaves....I added some ultra mini brown pearls for the eyes on each of the birds and stamped a Get Well Greeting....also from Stampin Up!! Thanks for stopping by to have a look.....get in on the fun and head on over to Embellish Magazine and play along!!!!

Cosmo Cricket/Let's Scrap Sketch/Soul Scrappers To Do List Theme

I created this page for the August CosmoCricket Challenge over at Let's Scrap....use any Cosmo Cricket paper and the sketch of your choice.

This is also for the Theme challenge over
at Soul Scrappers....we were to create a page representing our To Do Lists....okay that is not something I am good at. My hubby on the other hand is and he is always starting them for me......I add to it through out the day completely cheating the system....because my list usually represent things I have already done!! I know I know.....I should learn to be a list would save time and I wouldn't forget so many things.

Any way my page is so true to form for me.....write it down after the fact!! But hey I thought it would make a good first page for my 2010 family album...kinda like an index for what is to come in the following worked for me!!! So here is a bit about it....used Cosmo Cricket Coordination paper for my back ground...used some more CC to on my 2010 chipboard pieces....stamped a calendar page for each month...circled the month it represented and then listed the things that we did in the given month....added some canvas letters for our name and a few little embellishment to finish it off!!

Another Shaker Card......

After this week's 100th Color Throwdown celebration....I was not sure if they would be able to come up with a combo that would be as fun or exciting....boy was I wrong!!

I used this week's sketch from 2Sketches4You and I made another shaker card because I had so much fun with the one I did yesterday.

I pulled some Kiwi Kiss dp from my scrap pile....since I did not have kraft I used some Creamy Carmel....created my shaker box at the middle of the space ship and add chuncky blue glitter....I thought it looks pretty close to Baja Breeze....embossed my background pieces and added some ribbon to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

ColourQ Challenge

It is time for another Colour Q challenge....using these colors I created this birthday card. I also created a shaker out of his belly!! I filled the shaker area with some chuncky glitter.....I don't make these kinds of cards very often because I always make ans mess and I don't like the time it takes to complete it....but they are so much for kids and since I need card for a youngster I decided it would be worth the little extra effort that it takes. Smiles on littles one's faces are priceless!!!
I used my birthday embossing folder, Pun Fun stamp set from Stampin Up, markers, brads, and some satin black ribbon...the papers are from Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration tablet. Thanks for stopping by to look!!

Here is the prize for this blog stop: HodgePodge Hardware from Stampin Up!
Q & A:
Q: Can we enter more than one card?
A: Yes, you can but it won't increase your chances of winning since winners will be chosen from the comments left on the designers' blog. To be fair to everyone playing, you can only win one prize. If a participants name is randomly drawn as the winner on one blog, then their name gets randomly drawn on another, a new random number will be drawn.

Q: I'm confused about where we have to leave our comments. Is this going to be like a blog hop??
A: Yes, it is a "blog hop" of sorts, but you don't have to go in any particular order. We ask that you only leave one comment per blog. A complete blog list of the designers who have prizes to give away will be posted with the challenge on Wednesday. The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances will be of winning something!
