What a Wiener!

Good morning everyone!  Just a very quick post this morning, as I am VERY close to heading out on my road trip with my good friend, the CHA Super Show!  WOOT!  Wish us luck since we both seem to get lost going around the block.  ;O)

Today's card is made using Doxie by Wink Wink Ink.  What a cutie this dog is!  My sister has had a dachshund for years...when I say "a", what I really mean is 3 or 4.  Long hair or short, that is her dog of choice.  Luckily, this doggie doesn't bark!  I felt the need for a snarky sentiment when I printed this out the other day.  Just wait until someone is being a wiener...they're SO getting this card!  ;O)

Sketchbook Wednesday at TDS...

Good morning peeps!  It's time for the last weekly sketch challenge over at The Digi Shack.  This one is a doozie and I had a blast making this card!

I used a brand new image that will be released on August 7th from Brian Lock.  Isn't he the cutest little dude?  Love him!  I tried my hand at making a banner...this was my first try and I have to say, I think it's pretty cool!  What do you think about it?

Oh, just in case you hadn't heard...The Digi Shack now has a group over at CDAC!  Join us at our newest hang out for fun, inspiration, chit chat and maybe a freebie along the way!

Summertime Memories with ATS...

Hello everyone!  Just a quick post this afternoon before the storms hit {again}.  This week's challenge at All That Scraps is to make anything but a card.  Easy peasy!  I made a digital layout...are you surprised?  LOL!  I used the digi Butterfly Nora on my page.  I colored her in with Photoshop and even paper pieced her dress.  The adorable girl is my niece, Caysi...along with her Nanny's 3 Bischon's. 

Hope you're all having a fantastic day!  :O)

Bad to the Bone!

Good morning all!  It's Friday!  Woohoo!  This time next week I'll be in Illinois at the CHA Super Craft Show with my great friend, Anita!  How cool is that?

Today I wanted to share a ROCKIN' card I made using a Kenny K's downloads image.  She is called Rock Chick.  This week at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz the challenge is a sketch.  I turned it upside down and made it standard sized instead of square because I REALLY wanted to use this DP from Basic Grey...I didn't have enough left to make a square card.  :O)  I am pleased with the way it came out too.  I colored some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts black and sprayed them with some Smooch Spritz, though you can't really see it very well.  What do you think of this latest creation?

Have a great day, people!  :O)

Going Old School with Wild Flower Wednesday!

Good morning, yet again!  Another fabulous Wednesday post for you today.  Wild Flower Wednesday at The Wild Flower Patch this week is a fun one!  Use LACE and SPARKLE!  I decided to go old school on you...I made a shaker box for my card!  How long has it been since you made one of these babies?  LOL!  I'm not sure if I'm impressed or appalled by my creation this week...I'll let you be the judge.  BE NICE!  ;O)

I used the Heart Fairy Daisy digi for it.  I colored her with Copics.  The flower is a Prima that I sprayed with Smooch Spritz...I used it to add a little sparkle to the corners as well.  I got the lace from Jo-Ann's.  What are you thinking about it?

Check out what the other talented ladies on the DT made too...links are on my sidebar!

I'll OWL-ways Love You!

Good morning all!  Happy Hump Day!  It's time for another fun sketch at The Digi Shack!  Will YOU join us this week?

I used one of the Brian Lock images today...this owl looks SO amused, doesn't he?  He's a sleepy hoot owl, but he still loves you!  :O)  I flipped the sketch, just to be difficult.  He's colored with Copics, DP is Basic Grey, sentiment is a rub-on from Making Memories, Martha Stewart border punch, twine from my stash.

Keep a look out in the next couple of weeks for a BRAND NEW RELEASE from Brian Lock!  :O)

Tilda Teams Up with Wink Wink Ink!

Good morning everyone!  I'm here today to show off a little creation I made using the fancy couch from Wink Wink Ink.  This particular couch can be found in the Grandma's Parlor Set 1.  It made the perfect sitting spot for Tilda!  How cool!  Who says you can't use digital and rubbah all at the same time?  I really love the way this turned out.  I did have to make the couch pretty large, so it took me forever to color...well worth the time in the long run!  I hope the recipient enjoys it...she sure does deserve it!  :O)

Don't forget to join us at Crafter's Digital Art Center!  It's a neat place for all of us who love digis to get together, share, chat, enjoy challenges and freebies!  Come join Wink Wink Ink's Group today...there may be freebies in it for you!!!  WWI challenges have moved to CDAC as well...we have 2 winners every month.  Are YOU next?

"Deer" Friend...

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic day today.  I'm a little late getting this posted...I had the best intentions to post this earlier this morning, but I got distracted.  ;O)

I made this layout using a digital image from Wink Wink Ink called "Deer Friend."  Perfectly named, this is what I used for my layout title.  This is my buddy, Niki.  I got to see her the 4th of July weekend...after 14 years!  Awesome visit with an awesome chick!  You can purchase this image HERE!

New Find and New Challenge Too!

Good afternoon everyone!  After a restless night's sleep I'm finally here to post a new card I made last night.  It is from a new digital stamp company called Kenny K's Downloads.  Kenny makes the most adorably sassy digis!  I missed the DT call, but I'm hooked already!  Yesterday started their first challenge as well...Kenny K's Krafty Girlz.  This week's challenge is to use pastels.  I used the stamp named "Troublemaker"...very appropriate for me!  I also used last week's Mojo Monday sketch.  There are so many entries into the challenge already, I'm sure I won't be a winner...I just don't care!  How CUTE is this image???

Good morning again, crafty peeps!  Happy Hump Day!  I want to take a second to wish my Dear Hubby a very Happy Anniversary!  It's our 6/3 year anniversary today!  6 years as a couple and 3 years happily married.  We were lucky enough to have our 3rd anniversary on a Saturday...which happened to be 07.07.07!  Vegas will never be the same, people!  WOOT!  Here's a couple of fun photos to share.  I love you, Kenton!

Welcome to the next edition of Wild Flower Wednesday!  This week's challenge is to channel your inner Tim Holtz...GRUNGE!  Tear it, distress it, grunge it up!  This one was particularly hard for me...I don't do cards like this for a good reason.  I hope this works for the challenge!  I did my best.  ;O)
