I colored my image with my copics. My papers are by Provo Craft. I used silver beads in the corners of my image and pop dots to pop it all up! Very simple design, but it really allows the image to take center stage!!

I hope you had a great week!! I have funky sinuses again. UGHHH!! I have been miserable for the last few days and extremely busy so if I haven't made it to your blog this week, I will be trying to catch up over the weekend. We are currently having our second Nutty Nutshell's Challenge!! We are so thrilled with the response that we had to our first challenge!! Thank you for visiting us and playing along. We love to see your wonderful creations.
For this week's challenge, you should go out and find yourself a sketch challenge that is currently running (Mojo Monday, etc) and make a card using that sketch and ANY line of stamps that we sell in our Nutcrafter's store!!! That makes it nice and easy for everyone to participate!! If you have never visited the Nutcrafter's store, you really should. Go on over to Nutcrafter's and see our selection of stamps from lots of different companies such as The Greeting Farm, Stampavie, Magnolia, Ladybug & Friends, High Hopes, Buddy Bear and Sarah Kay. You can also get out Nutshells, Harriet Hurst and our Digi Image Pink Frosting - our Breast Cancer Awareness set. Which is too cute! I'm sure that you have something in your stash that you can use and you can order something new for next time!! We also sell lots of supplies as well and Katie and Colette are the best!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I am a Guest Designer for YNS for the next couple of months and I am loving it!! The team is so talented and easy to with and I love their fabby images!! This week's challenge is a Shape Card Challenge that Lana has for us! The only rule for our challenges is that you use a YNS stamp for your creation. Remember that YNS limited edition digital Halloween stamps are only available until Oct 31st so hop over to the Your Next Stamp Store and pick up your set today! The Starlets cards are really awesome so be sure to check out our challenge blog for some inspiration! Please also stop in on each Starlet and leave them some love!!
For my card, I used the Fhiona Loves to Skate set. She comes with lots of little snowflakes, birds, hearts, and a sentiment. She is a cutie!! I cut out a mitten shape for my card and used Basic Grey papers. I used a nestie to cut out my pretty eyelet circle in the center and used ribbon from my stash. I colored my image with copics, popped everything up on pop-dots and used Glossy Accents on my ice to give it that "frozen" shiny look. I also used it on her headband to make it look like plastic. I love these colors and this image is adorable. I'm happy with how this turned out!! I hope you are too!

I know it's not Friday, but you can still grab this adorable FREE Image from DIGITAL DELIGHTS to have for your very own! This is Billy with Bat Balloons. Isn't he the cutest! He was quick and fun to color so if you need Halloween cards in a hurry this may just be the image for you. For my card, I was able to enter lots of challenges (yay) which I have listed below. I used the Friday Sketchers #74 for my card. It's a fun sketch and I thought it would work wonderfully with my image and it did!
I simply followed the sketch and used K & Co papers and a Quickutz die for the letters "boo". I used my cuttlebug for some embossed texture and distressed it with black ink. I used cute little spider 3-D stickers because they were cute!! I also machine stitched around all of the elements with my sewing machine.These are the challenges I was able to enter with my card.
My Time to Craft - Quick
Papertake Weekly - The Dark Side
Cute Card Thursday - Spookfest
Don't forget to visit our Delightful Sketches Challenge Blog. We always love to see your work!!You can also visit us at Papercraft Planet or SNR Card Universe. We have prizes and challenges happening in both of those communities too! Don't miss out! Thanks so much for stopping by today. It's always nice to read comments on my cards. I've been a little slow this week visiting, but I hope this week will be better. Maybe my sinuses will settle down and behave. I hope.

Today is Christmas Stampin' All Year Long day, which means that we are going to be one more card closer to being done with our cards for this Christmas!! Yay!! I hope you'll play along with us this week. This week our fearless leader Maria has provided us with one of her fabby sketches to use.
For my card today I used this adorable Pink Cat Studio's Digi Stamp. Have you been to Melissa's new Digi Store?? If not you have to check it out!! She has the most adorable images. She has been making cuties out of 'rubbah' for a while and now she's doing some digi's!! I used my nesties to cut out my shapes and I colored my image with my copics. I used a glue pad and a Basic Grey stamp to stamp the pretty snowy flourish in the bottom left corner. I glittered it after I stamped it with the glue pad. IRL it looks really amazing!! My patterned paper is by Best Creation, Inc. and is glittered. I have had the worst time trying to photograph glittered or shimmery stuff lately. I don't know why, but I just can't seem to make it work!!
Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. Again, we'd love for you to play along. Just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to leave me a comment so I can return the favor! Don't forget to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you. I have been a busy little bee lately!!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!
I hope you are doing well today! Wow what a busy week so far!! I have been truly blessed as I have more wonderful news to share with you!! I have been asked by Karen to be a Guest Designer for October and November for Your Next Stamp. These are the cutest images ever and I am so excited to be a Guest Starlet for the next couple of months.
At Your Next Stamp we are having our very first challenge!!
The challenge is a colour combination!!
PINK & YELLOW!!
We have 1 rule...you must use a YNS image on your entry... so Karen has launched some limited edition DIGI stamps designed by Fhiona for those of you who don't have any YNS stamps yet! They are for sale starting today and are available until the end of the month!
So hop on over to the Your Next Stamp Store to get yours now so you can enter our great challenge!
My card for the challenge uses the digi ghost image and the Happy Halloween digi sentiment from YNS. It's a very simple card but my pink and yellow is in the ribbons tied on each side of the ghost. I decided to be a little more subtle with my pink and yellow!! I used Reminisce papers, little tiny bat brads from my stash and ribbon from my stash. That's it! Simple but showcases the digi images perfectly!! I hope you like it!
Hop over to the Your Next Stamp blog for all of the details about the challenge and prizes Karen is giving away for our first challenge!!! I hope you'll play along with us and be sure to grab a challenge blinkie and spread the word.
We look forward to seeing your entries!! Good luck! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!
