Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #42 - Anything Goes

Hello again my lovely friends - this is part two of  my Tuesday Post. 

It's also time for this weeks challenge at Tuesday Alchemy.  Once again our design team has made some great projects.  I hope you will check out their blogs as well as join in.  Listed below are the links to our sponsors for this week and each one is giving a $10.00 gift card voucher for one winner.  You can't be one of the winners if you don't join in the challenge so we hope you will jump in and show us what you got!!!  Think of how much fun it would be to do a little shopping.  



I made a small altered album this week.  Actually it was a special order for a young lady who wanted to give her hubby a little something something extra for their wedding anniversary.  She wanted it to be simple and with no fluff.  It was hard letting this one go - I really like it and wanted to keep it for myself.  Isn't that horrible?  :-)

This is a chipboard album and I cut out each piece and rounded the corners after I attached the cardstock.  All she has to do is fill in the blanks and add her own sweet touch.  I can't wait to hear his reaction and I only five more days to wait.  WooHoo!!









That's it for this project.  I appreciate your stopping by for a visit and treasure your comments as well.  Until next time....

Hugs and smiles

Twist of Faith Challenge #13 - Blue Skies

Happy happy Tuesday my lovely friends -

It's a new challenge at Twist of Faith and our theme this week is "Blue Skies".  Our sponsor is Stamp Art Design by Kathryne at Whimsy Stamps.  Our random prize winner will receive their choice of 4 images from her collection.  


Our design team has some great cards this week and we are just waiting for you to join us.  Here is the link to the challenge blog and we can't wait to see what you create to share with us.  All you need to do is create a card within our guidelines which is easy as 1.2.3.




It was a little challenging deciding which cute little bear to use from her new digital stamp set called New Little Bear Winter Fun.



  




I really love this background paper and just had to use it again with this card.  It makes a fun background and I can add glimmer and bling.  I colored the sweet little bear with Copics and created a snow border around the quote and on the hat.  And of course - the snow the little bear is standing on.  We are really looking forward to seeing what you create this week.

With hugs and smiles always

Let It Snow

Happy Happy Monday my dear sweet friends - I hope you had a great weekend.  For those of you in the U.S. hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving.  

It's time for this week's challenge with Tammy's Scrappin Corner.  This weeks theme is - "Let it Snow."  The design team has made some wonderful cards and I hope you will visit each of their blogs and leave a little love too!!  You can find their links on my side bar.  

Here is the link to Tammy's Scrappin Corner Challenge Blog

We have two great sponsors this week and they are:


BugABoo Stamps


Prize is 7 Free Images

QKR Stampede 


Prize is 5 Free Images

I had "snow" much fun making this card.  It sure took a while to put it all together but I fell in love with this image from BugABoo the minute I saw it.  His name is "Eggbert" and Eggbert stole my heart.  My goal for this card was to create as many different textures as possible.  I used some pom poms to create the snowballs.  I created the snow and then added a row of snowflake lace along the bottom of the card to add a different look.  I have been wanting to use this lace for quite some time.  I colored Eggbert with my Copics, added some snowflake buttons and of course some bling.


I sure hope you will join in this week's challenge and I can't wait to see what you create.

With hugs and smiles
