Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Week 17

I hope your tummy and your heart is full after Thanksgiving this year! We had a fabulous time with all four of us children together at mom's with all of our children! So many good times when we are all together. I am so grateful for a loving family. It is so fun to watch the little ones play with cousins the way we used to when we were the little ones! Good memories remembered and being made!

Anyway, now that the leftovers are in the fridge let's get geared up for Christmas. I tried really hard this year to not get to Christmas-y before Thanksgiving. BUT, Thanksgiving is officially over and it is finally the Christmas season. This week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle the challenge is anything Christmas! A card, an altered item, a layout.....ANYTHING Christmas! Here's what I created.

The sweet little penguin image was a freebie that I got from PollyCraft. I just couldn't wait to get him on a card. He's colored with copic markers (man I just love these markers). The paper and sticker is from Creative Memories. I used a sketch from CPS to get me going. Let me know if you like him or not!!! AND, get creating and link up for a chance to win free files from The Cutting Cafe (Regina has some great Holiday files!!!).

November Guest Digital Image Designer at Paper Popsicles

I was so absolutely thrilled when Melissa contacted me to let me know that I had been chosen as the November Digital Image Guest Designer at Paper Popsicles! I cannot tell you how honored I feel to have this opportunity. I have been playing with my images and after being sick last week, finally have my projects ready to reveal. I hope that I have done the Cheeky Radish images justice. Let me know what you think and head on over to the Paper Popsicles store to get your hands on these wonderful images and other fun stuff too!!!

First up are two cards that I created for Thanksgiving.

Both cards were created using the same fall page kit from Paper Studios. I colored the Cheeky Radish images, Tom Turkey and Give Thanks, with copic markers.

Next up is a shaker box card I created with the Cheeky Radish Snow Globe image. Thanks to JenC for the tutorial on the Paper Popsicles Message Boards. I had a blast trying this and think it turned out ok for my first try.

A few weeks ago, Melissa offered up this little house card file as a Friday Freebie. I couldn't wait to use this Through the Window image with it. The paper is MME and I colored the image with copics. I added Stickles to give the snow some bling.

And finally, my favorite project of them all....a layout featuring the Cookie Platter image. I've been waiting to get these photos onto a layout and into an album. This image was just the push I needed to get it done. The paper used on this LO is from Creative Memories. The Cookie Platter image was colored using copics, cut out and pop-dotted on the page. I love how this page turned out! Please click on the image to see it larger!

I am so very thankful to Melissa for this opportunity to showcase the amazing Cheeky Radish images! Please check out the store....I know there are some great deals going on!

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Week 16

I am so late getting this posted but I have been feeling really terrible this past week. I am finally starting to feel back to normal today. This week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle, the challenge is to create a flower pot card. These cards are so cute and are really easy to make. Here is a link to a tutorial that shows how to create this great little card: Stephanie at Splitcoast.

Here's the card that I came up with. It didn't take me very long at all! The paper is Creative Memories with a touch of Glitter Foam Paint. The felt flowers are from Li'l Davis Designs. I created the centers of the flowers with a circle punch and epoxy stickers. Create one of these flower pot cards and link it up at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle for a chance at free Dustin Pike images!
