LOVE

Hi all,
It's Monday so that means it's The Monday Greeting Card Challenge over at The Outlawz.  This week's theme is Anything Goes. Always love those!  So I chose to make a Valentine card with a digi sentiment called LOVE from Oak Pond Creations http://www.etsy.com/shop/OakPondCreations I found this sweet image in my Valentine stash from Crafty Secrets I bought a few years ago. The DP is new from Pebbles called From Me To You and paper from LY from Crate Paper called Fourteen.  Flowers are from my stash, Twinery twine, hearts from Jolee's Boutique and heart clip from Pebbles. Colored the digi sentiment with Copics:
R00, R11, R20, R81, R83, R85, BG11, BG13, BG15.

I am entering this card in a few challenges this week as follows:

Friendship Never Melts

Hello there,
Thought I would share a super quick and easy card I made today.  Yes, I'm STILL working on Christmas cards for local people so I still have time to send them.  This card was done with Authentique's Glistening paper collection!  Love this paper.  Picked it up in the 12X12 size.  I wanted to do a tag card so so I covered the tag using one of the corner's of the paper already had this image on it then added chunky white embossing powder to look like snow and to add a little texture.  Added a few snowflakes cut from white glitter paper.  Memory box Giovanna Snowflake, Memory Box Jingle Bell border, tag and ribbon from stash, sentiment is from stickers from same paper collection, bling Kaisercraft.  So I really cheated on this one, no stamping or coloring!  Easy.  I am entering this card in a few challenges this week as follows:

Paris perpetual calendar

Good Sunday morning,

It's Time once again for the anything goes challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.  This week's challenge optional theme is to make a mini or perpetual calendar.  Our sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies http://adayfordaisies.blogspot.com
 I chose to do a perpetual calendar.  It's made from a metal piece I bought at Goodwill for a couple bucks. I painted the edges black, added the paper and calendar from Graphic45 and then went through my stash to make the magnets for the days.  The digi I chose to use is called Skirt of Flower's.  I colored it monochromatic hoping it would match the calendar.  This was a fun project and now I have a great Paris calendar for my craft room!
Copics used:  E11, E21, E23, E27, E30, E34, E35, E50, E51, E93, YR15, YR16.

I am entering this project in a few challenges this week as follows:
