Guest Design at Tiddly Inks

***Scroll down below to see today's SASSY CHERYL's DT creation!***

Hey, friends!
This is my last creation as a Guest Designer for the month of November over at Tiddly Inks!
I had a blast inking up for Christy using her awesome and ever amazingly adorable images.
It is another ANYTHING GOES theme challenge.
So, I decided to use Wryn and the Bake Me Some Love digi stamp.
Here is my creation:

Adorable, right?!
And since your here...check out my other two creations I made this past weekend using:

And...a newly released image-Dino-Mite
Let me just extend a BIG Thank You to Christy and the DT team for allowing me to guest design this month!!! 
Okay...that is all from me.

Sassy Cheryl's Winter/Cold Weather

The week before Thanksgiving break is always crazy busy!
 First, it is American Education Week, so there are many parent/meet-the-teacher activities planned all week long!
Second, it means that tonight and Thursday, I will be volunteering in the evenings as a judge for the Interscholastic Reading Competition. There are 3 rounds and it goes late into the night.
It's all good though...it makes me appreciate my Thanksgiving break all that much more.
Anyways, today's the start of a TWO week challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's.
For this theme, I colored in the adorable Noah the Helpful Elf.
Here is my creation:

Mo Manning~Challenge #210 Christmas or Winter Holiday

Mo Manning's newest challenge is Christmas or Winter Holiday.
I made two cards for this challenge.
I am trying to re-build my card stash back up.
Here are my two creations using Mo Manning images, of course.
First, is one of the three images from Valerie in Winter.

Second, is Bella and Bronte Skating:
I know it sounds unbelievable, but I haven't been to the craft store in a while now...just trying to use up all the goodies I have. My crafty corner is stuffed to the max so, I am trying to create in order to get rid of it all.
Then, I can purchase new. :) He-he!
Thanks for stopping by!

Sassy Cheryl's Favorite Holiday Colors

And the new Sassy Cheryl's challenge #192 is to use your favorite holiday colors. 
So, I went with red and green...and since blue is my favorite color I had to use that somewhere on my card as well.
Here is my creation using Candy Cane Love:
I colored this candy cane lover in with Copic markers and the paper comes from a 6x6 pad from American Crafts called Peppermint Express.
The sentiment reads: 'Tis the Season!
I kept the card plain and simple with no embellishments so that I could mail it out to an adopted soldier. I am finding that even the enamel dots are causing the envelopes to tear when it is run through the postage machine.
I made another Christmas card, too using another Sassy Cheryl image.
I'll share it here:

Have a great Tuesday!

Mo Manning~Anything Goes

A new challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge Blog
This week's challenge is Anything Goes! 
My favorite kind of challenge!!
This week, I colored up the adorable Odette. 
Here is my creation:
The paper comes from Crate Paper~The Pier. Of course, I used my Copic markers to color her in and the sentiment reads: inspire.
 It comes from a wooden rubber stamp. 
It's funny how unbelievably giddy I get when I buy a new stamp. Even in today's digital world, I still very much like my rubber stamps... especially sentiments. The only problem is storing them...
So, this weekend I am scheduled to relax and color. 
No, really. 
I am!
Stay inside and be warm! It is so cold here! I have resigned myself to the fact that I must break out the winter coats! Blah!
Have a great Saturday, my friends. 

I am also submitting this card to the Sister Act Card Challenge #32

Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday

Here is to a Wonderful Wednesday where I get to share my creation...
My Kraftin' Kimmie card I made this week!
I used the Holiday Lulu and Libby set from Cheryl Alger. 
The sentiment accompanies the set and it reads: Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!
The paper comes from Studio Calico Magical Collection. 
Tomorrow is Wednesday and it is Parent/Teacher Conferences so it will be a loooonnnnng night!
Happy Wonderful Wednesday, my friends!

Anything Goes at Sassy Cheryl's!

Sassy Cheryl's newest challenge is Anything Goes!
So... here is my creation for this week's challenge using the rubber stamp: We're All Ears
Here is my creation:

This image is so sweet.
I used the accompanying sentiment: I'm all ears!
I colored this using my Copic markers and I tried using a different hair combo that I normally do not use. This combo is E11,13,15

Eh, I really like my go-to hair combo but when you have a 16 -year old who thinks it is funny to hide your markers, you must resort to other alternatives!

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday, mt friends!

Tiddly Inks Guest DT

I am Guest Designing with Tiddly Inks today!!! 
So exciting!! 
Here is my creation for the new weekly challenge~Anything Goes!
For this challenge, I used Bad Medicine. 

I used my Copic markers to color in this cutie.
 The paper comes from a 6x6 paper pad from American Crafts that I purchased at Target. 

The sentiment accompanies the digital stamp and it reads: Wrapping you with my love! Feel better soon!

This image was so fun to color! Fortunately, I don't have a need for a lot of get well cards but this is perfect for just those cards! 

Click here to check out the DT creations and then it is your turn to link up a new creation for the Anything Goes challenge!

Weekend Wrap Up

I had an enjoyable weekend making cards! 
I took off work on Friday to take my son Alex out to Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. He got new "ears"! And for those of you who may not know, Alex was born deaf and he hears with the amazing technology called cochlear implants. So, I guess you could say he has been "upgraded"!
There was a Tiddly Inks release on Friday as well! I was soooo excited to print out the newest images and start coloring! 
Here is a quick look at some of the creations I made this weekend!

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge  at Send a Smile 4 Kids
This time the challenge is Happy Holidays 4 Kids. Create and link any Christmas or December Holiday card for a child and you could win one of the great prizes. It never hurts to start early, so you can brighten a child's holiday in the eight children’s hospitals SAS4K serves. 
And...how nice  would it  be if they could choose a few more cards for friends or family they are missing while they spend the holidays in the hospital. 
You do not have to send in your card to participate in SAS4K challenges, but the kids sure hope you do. Keep in my mind that cards must be received by early December to allow enough time to sort and mail to the children’s hospitals. 
 There are three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Scrapping Memories is giving their winner 10 free files of the winner’s choice! Bugaboo is giving their randomly picked winner 7 digis of their choice! And QKR Stampede’s winner gets 5 digis! 
TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.
Here is my creation using the sponsor Bugaboo...Rudolph--Stars.

Come join in!
