Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Pretty Papers

It's time for another Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and our hostess this week is the wonderfully talented Jackie, who chose the theme Pretty Papers.  How fun is that.  I love dp and what a challenge to pick just the right one for Samantha Cops an Attitude

I love a kid with an attitude, unless she is mine LOL.  I colored Samantha with copic markers  and combined blues and greens for her dress and wanted her to have reddish hair as some of my favorite girls have attitude and reddish hair :)

The papers are embossed with sparkes and glitter and I love the colors.  Combined with the blue and white checked paper I think it adds just the right touch or pizzaz to this little "Really" girl which is exactly what the sentiment says punched with my label punch and mounted in layers, yeah, and notice, I even matched the checks....!!! it happens....LOL My perfectionist tendencies are here to stay.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations and see what pretty papers they have chosen to showcase their Sassy images.  Sassy Cheryl has been busy creating and
 " coloring" some of her images and you can purchase them  now too. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--In the Dog House!!!

Thursday means the end of my work week and time for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Woot Woot!!! The challenge this week is,  In the Dog House, and Mo has this awesome dog character called Bronte who is wonderful so I chose this image with Bella and Bronte star gazing:

The image was colored with copic markers and airbrushed for the night sky.  The stars on the image were highlighted with  Atyou  Spica pen and the sky really sparkes like a milky way.  The stars were cut with my cuttlebug from tin sheets and MFT dies, pretty cool huh. 
A pretty silver photo corner and a silver ribbon and my Star Light Star Bright ....make a wish with Bronte card  star gazing card.

A  Love Ya Lots sentiment says it all.

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Fancy Borders

Happy Tuesday, it's time for Sassy Cheryl's  Challenge, and my super talented Sassy Sistah Judy  has chosen Fancy Border's as the theme this week.  Oh the possibilities!!!

I chose an older Sassy Cheryl's image called Special Stork Delivery Girl  as I needed a baby card in neutral tones.  Isn't this stork just the cutest guy with his fun party hat and carrying such a darling Sassy baby that if I had really thought about it I might have changed the colors  to the yellow at the top of the blanket, looks like the fear of flight may have caused an accident LOL.  Just kidding, it is a beautiful. hand crafted baby blanket and don't let anyone tell you any different!!!
The image is colored with copic markers and highlighted the stork feathers with white gel pan.  I do feathers like fur, love it.

The fancy borders are the edging created with a MS punch on the white lower layer and the scalloped twist frame showing off the new arrival which was cut with my cricut from the Fancy Frames cartridge. 

You can find the darling Special Stork Delivery Girl image in the 2 dollar bargain Bin so if you are needing any baby cards or just a  fun bird card, ( you could erase the baby and have a Flying by to say hi card...wouldn't that be cute???)  Hey they are digi's, they are versatile...Stop by the store and grab a couple.

Be sure to stop by and see what the DT has created for your viewing pleasure and check out the new images Sassy Cheryl has in the Store.  I heard a rumor there is a new Tween kid in town and she is just as Sassy as the rest of the kids LOL. 

 Thanks to everyone who played the Summer Fun Challenge I loved seeing all of your cards :)  Thanks for playing and grab a Sassy Cheryl image and play along this week too!!!

Hope you are staying cool, it is hot here in Omaha so good time to stay in the craft room. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day....

Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge-/Dancing or Singing and a GD Call !!!

Thursday is here and that means it is Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge time WooHoo!!! This week the challenge is to make a card or project with a Dancing or Singing theme.  I chose to create a Birthday card using Penelope's Party Wagon

I loved coloring this sweet Birthday image, gotta love that hair, and little frilly dresses are so fun to color since I never could get my girls to wear them LOL.  Colored with copic markers and sponged with distressed ink.

The main image corners were softened by rounding the corners as were the corners of the music layer behind.  Both were mounted on the pretty flowered dp behind.

A Happy Birthday sentiment with 2 cute blue buttons was mounted in the upper left corner and a beautiful border of Tim Holtz organdy rosette flower ribbon was layered at the bottom and accented with a single blue button.  

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations this week on the Challenge Blog and when you enter the challenge this week and for the next 3 weeks if you are interested in becoming a Guest Design Team member add GD behind your  name on the entry to be considered. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week!!

Tuesday means Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and I am the hostess again :)  I chose the theme Summer Fun and chose this awesome new Sassy image called: Sassy Sally and Bella Head to the Beach

I loved coloring this image and added an ocean with white capped waves, sandy beach and  the beautiful airbrushed sky blowing in fun scrabble tiles.   Can you tell I had a lot of fun creating this card???

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Anything Goes!!!

Woo Hoo, I am the Hostess this week for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge  and I decided it was time for another Anything Goes Challenge.  Here is the card I created using Avery-Plain 'ole Avery

Isn't Avery just the cutest demure little sweetie???I decided to color her in shades of purple and teal.  I seldom use purple, just not a color I gravitate to :)  Colored with copics of course and the I cut the image out with a Friskar's circle cutter and then I cut the scalloped circle with my Cricut.  Have I mentioned I love that toy LOL.

The grosgrain ribbon is tied into one of the scallopos and the edge of the double sided dp is tacked down by the circle on one corner and a corner punch highlights the other.
The flowers are tissue paper flowers which started out white and then were airbrushed to match the color scheme :)  Love that toy too, couldn't live without my air compressor and air brush.

Sweet little Avery and I want you to check out what the rest of the DT have created for you to see and then be sure to check out the Huge 25%  OFF  Sale Sassy Cheryl has going on from now until  9PM Thursday so head on over to the Sassy Store and grab some digis while they are on sale, I know I will. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful and Safe 4th of July for my American friends and a wonderful creative week for everyone!!!
