Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Anything Goes!!

First of March Challenge means the theme for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge is Anything Goes, always a favorite with everyone.  I used Roxy, a great tween image:


I think I am on a polka dot kick right now, but I get there every once in a while, usually in the spring, which by the way needs to hurry the heck up here in Omaha LOL.  The coloring is of course copic markers and the embellishments are from my stash.  I just love the puffy heart.  I have several tween granddaughters that this image would be perfect for, they love to do their nails and fix themselves up to enhance the beauties they already are :)

Be sure to drop by the Mo's Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the DT cards or projects and while you are there be sure to grab a Mo image to participate in the challenge and note the changes happening.  The Challenge Blog will stay around but will be changing to a new challenge every two weeks, which gives you more time to create your projects for the challenge:)  A new group will be opening up on Facebook  and here is a little bit about that:

New Tiddly Inks Challenge--Green!

Once again I had just colored an image and the challenge came out over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog that allowed me to use the image for that Challenge....how great is that!!!  I thought this image was so cute when I was over getting some others and I thought it would be perfect for some boy Birthday cards:

Kind of simple but kids don't appreciate fancy.... but I think they will think Rocket Boy is just perfect!

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my little Alien.

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Anything Goes!!

Woo Hoo time for a new Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and because it is the first of the month it is Anything Goes!!!  Here is my card using My Favorite Kind of Weather:


Sassy Sally says the ground hog may have been wrong so she is trying to Sweet Talk Mother Nature into finally sending Spring.  It has been soooo cold in the mid-west that I for one am ready for Spring.  I used bright happy colors and pretty flowers a new die cut of circles and a sweet request from Sassy Sally and Bella to plead my case LOL.

Be sure to drop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT have created and while you are there, run over to the Sassy Cheryl's Digi store and grab an image or two and play along in the challenge since you can now enter more than one card in the challenge, but you have to use a Sassy Cheryl's image to play.  Remember, you have two weeks to complete you projects for this Challenge.  Also, the DT adds cards or projects on their blogs on the off weeks so check them out too.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Pigtail Gabby--Sassy Cheryl's

I colored the cutest Sassy Cheryl's image this week for the mid challenge preview and here is Pigtail Gabby:


I had a ball coloring this little cutie patootie.  I am getting into my Spring color pallette as I am so tired of snow and cold, it is snowing as I type this :(   Grabbed some of my wooden die cuts and embellished my little cutie.  Hard to call her Sassy when she looks so sweet and innocent here .

Don't forget to drop by the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and play along in the Add a Ribbon Challenge going on, you have one more week to enter that challenge, just use a Sassy Cheryl's image and you can now enter as many times as you want as long as you use a Sassy Cheryl's image on each card or project, how cool is that!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week.

Tiddly Inks Challenge--Primary Colors and Facebook Challenge use Two images

I am enjoying playing in the Tiddly Inks Challenges and the challenge this week is to use Primary colors.  I picked up a few new images last week and this one worked out well for this challenge :)


With several grandsons of skateboard age this will come in handy,  or I can give it to my daughter to use for the many birthday's that her kids get invited to :)  Left it rather simple, used a die cut I had that is similiar to the hexagon ones I have been seeing that I liked to much, it worked :) and used my cricut to cut the letters for the skateboarders sentiment.  The arrow and star were from my stash.

I also completed the Tiddly Inks Facebook Challenge where the theme is to use two images, which I had just colored two days ago, how funny is that...never happens to me.  Granted both images are from the same set but I think since I had to add them together it should qualify?!?


I originally colored the image to practice my hair and skin techniques for a class I am taking and also I tried out the coloring of folds, I don't think they turned out too bad :)  I like them for a first attempt.  The clouds are airbrushed in and a little light but if you look real hard you can see them.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week, hope you have as much fun coloring as I am :)

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Add a Ribbon!

Time for a new Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge and the wonderfully talented Lis, is the hostess who chose the theme,  Add a Ribbon.  Here is what I created using the new, Goodness image:


This darling image was created by Mo as a tribute to Shirley Temple Black who passed away a couple of weeks ago.  You may have known here as just Shirley Temple. I grew up watching all of her movies, good wholesome entertainment, she could sing and dance, she had a contagious smile, and a twinkle in her eye you had to love.

I have been taking a hair and skin coloring class, hope you can see an improvement, if not I am having a lot of fun practicing, means more coloring for me....you never outgrow your need to color :) I am working on folds now too, so expect to see some of that on my images too....fun fun fun.

Be sure to drop by the Challenge blog and see what Ribbons the rest of the DT have added to their projects and cards for you to see, I can't wait to see myself.  The challenge requires you to use a Mo's Digital Pencil image to enter the challenge and a random drawing is held after each challenge and for every 25 entries a 5 dollar gift certificate is given.

Big news is on the horizon for the Challenge Blog and it should be announced this week or next.....

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week.
