Wow, Thursday already! Time for a new mid-inspiration post from Aud Sentiments! The challenge this time around is "Birthday". You can never have enough birthday cards!!

Aud Sentiments is a bi-weekly challenge with a theme. The one special thing to note is you MUST use a sentiment on your card to enter our challenge.

I have been guilty of just using images on cards myself so I love this idea. :) This week's challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio and Stitchy Bear! As always, fantastic and generous prizes are up for grabs!


Here is my project, featuring Rainbow Brite Sassy.



That's it for me! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!

Simply Papercraft #16: Anything Goes (Post #2)

Happy FRIDAY, my lovelies!!! I'm so happy the weekend is here! Today I'm sharing my latest card for Simply Papercraft. Our bi-weekly challenges are ALWAYS "Anything Goes". I love this! Makes it easy and fun to combine challenges and really show off your best work. This week's challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and Stitchy Bear! I made cards with images from BOTH sponsors, so I'm blogging them in separate posts. As always, fantastic and generous prizes are up for grabs!

For my project today I used "Chemistry" digi stamp from Stitchy Bear. Papers are from Basic Grey. Dies from MFT, punches from Stampin' Up, colored with Copics, I created the sentiment on the computer. Wiggly eyes stolen from my kid's stash of crafting supplies. ;)




And here is a tilted view so you can see the wiggly eyes I added over the top of the drawn test tube eyes.


I played along with a sketch on today's project (VLV October #4)

Kitty Bee: October Spotlight

Hello everyone, and WELCOME to the weekend! I think it's almost impossible not to be happy on nice fall weekend...although it got CHILLY here in Wisconsin! So far, I'm surviving, and I made it to the weekend for my monthly spotlight for the FANTASTIC Kitty Bee Designs DT. I am SO in love with all of these little sweeties. If you are new to Kitty Bee, you HAVE to check them out. Seriously. They are adorable and awesome to color; the shapes and designs lend themselves to all kinds of color and sketch combos!

Check out my Kitty Trumpeter. I adore him! My DS#1 is doing trumpet this year for introductory band, so I had to play with this sweet image. It's part of the Jazz Kits collection from KBD. He's printed out, and colored with Copics.



I played along with this awesome VLV October sketch for Mr. Jazz Kitty today...

I hope you've been inspired by the projects you've seen so far along the hop. You're almost to the end so let's finish strong! Here are my projects:

Colored with Copics, of course, using PaperTrey Ink white cardstock. Dies are from Paper Smooches and Lil Inker, respectively. Loose glitter applied with Quickie Glue pen on the pumpkin card.

Creative Knockouts #110: Thankful Thoughts

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start!  For my post today, I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#110) where the challenge is....Thankful Thoughts! This week's sponsor is Fred She Said and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!

Here is my project, featuring "Hydrangea Bouquet" from FSS. I made this card to give to someone, and I had a brain fade with my photography. I decided to keep the front panel simple and let the image speak. Since I had already written my note, I did not photograph the inside. I used a "thankful we're friends" sentiment on the inside along with is. I chose to use the pre-colored version for my card today (there are all different colors in the bundle). My sentiment is from Paper Pretties. Dies from Verve and MFT. Paper and brads are Basic Grey:
