Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Sketch Design!!!

It's time for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge, and our wonderful Hostess Jackie has chosen one of my favorite Challenge themes, a sketch, it takes half of the work process out of the challenge for me :)  Gotta love that!!! I chose Wind up Santa for my card:

I love the colors of Christmas they are so bright and inviting. Red and Green.  I love to add polka dots for a visual bit of interest. Have I mentioned that I also LOVE snowmen!!! The image was colored with copic markers and airbrushed the sky and ground for highlights.  I used ruffled ribbon instead of bands for the cross bands of the sketch.  The brad and mistletoe punch were added to highlight the cross section of the ribbon. 

I inverted the brads in the upper left corner instead of having them as shown to match the contour of the dp, you gotta do what you gotta do with the paper you are working with, a little diversion from the sketch is okay, it still had 3 dots....that's my story and I am sticking to it :) 

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards to see what they created for the sketch challenge.  To play along with us, grab a Sassy image, the one I used is in the bargain bin for under a dollar, so no excuses and Cheryl has several new Christmas images perfect for your Christmas cards, yes, it is time to get busy on them!!! Once you have created your sketch card enter it in the Challenge for a chance to win 2 images in the random drawing, remember you must now use a Sassy Cheryl's image to enter. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great creative day!!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challengle--Give Thanks/Food

Time for another Sassy Cheryl's Challenge//Where does the time go!!! Jeni is our hostess this week and the theme is Food or Thanksgiving.  I chose the cutest Sassy Sally's Fall Pumpkin

Isn't Sassy Sally just the cutest little gardner, carrying this pumpkin for Grandma to bake into a pie for Thanksgiving dinner?  I created a plaid skirt for her fall wardrobe.  I airbrushed the sky and grass while the image was still in the spellbinder die.  The image was mounted on a pretty paisley dp from my stash and I love the beautiful fall plaid ribbon.  I will be so sad if I ever run out of this roll :(

The ribbon is a large rolled spellbinder rose and it holds the sentiment oval that says how grateful Sally is for her grandma.

Be sure to drop by the Challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT cards and see what they are thankful for or want to eat LOL.  We hope you take time to play along this week during your holiday time.  Use a Sassy Cheryl's image for a chance to win 2 images of your choice in the random drawing.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, for my US friends and for my International friends, have a wonderful week and week-end.  Those traveling, drive and travel safely!!!
For my friends still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Sandy I hope you are safe and that you are with friends and can enjoy a Thanksgiving with your family and friends, and thankful you have each other.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Belated Birthday!!

Perfect Challenge for me this week at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge.  Jeni, our hostess with the mostess, must really know me LOL.  The challenge theme is, Belated Birthday, for which I chose: Sassy Sally's Triple Layer Cake.

I love this sweet image of Sassy Sally with her wonderful cake. I colored the image with copic markers and shaded to help make her stand out a bit.  Cut the image with spellbinder dies.  I used the double sided dp and when I had cut the layer I flipped it over and staggered it over the opening to look like a totally different piece of dp.  I added some buttons,  brown and pink stitched ribbon, and a Spellbinder fancy label die for the sentiment which I stamped (yeah I do have stamps ) Sorry I forgot....Again!   The story of my life...I never fail to get the cards made in time, but never seem to get them mailed in time.  I am so bad :(  I still love you !!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards and see their Belated Birthday cards and thank you to everyone who played along in the challenge and used a Sassy Cheryl image. If you have not played in the challenge for awhile the rules have changed and you have to use a Sassy Cheryl's image to play...The random drawing is for your choice of two images and have you seen the two new snowmen in the frames !!!??? I am in love...

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Masculine

Yippee, it's Tuesday and that means it's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge time.  Our hostess this week is the super talented Dawn, and she has chosen the theme, Masculine.  I chose to use Noah's Tire Swing:

I chose to create a scrapbook page instead of a card using the image which I enlarged and colored with copic markers...I love the way it turned out.  The base is 8 1/2 X 11  the handsome young man is my grandson, Hayden, with a soapbox car and basketball pictures they shared with grandma :) 

I love using digital images to enhance scrapbook pages and then adding a couple of photos and I used some lettering created with my cricut.  Have I mentioned I love my Cricut LOL. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations and remember that starting this week you MUST use a Sassy Cheryl's image to participate in the Challenge...The winner of the challenge random drawing wins two images of their choice so grab an image, Sassy Cheryl has tons to choose from and there are so many boy images, Who can resist Noah, or a card for a boy/man would fill the challenge too if I am not stretching the challenge...one of my strong suits. LOL. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Total Cuteness--New Edition to Edgar Family!

The newest edition to the Edgar Family was born healthy and I believe happy :), I haven't heard anything to the contrary.  Contrary to most Edgar babies, he has a ton of hair.  Here is a pictures of the handsome man the night he was born:

and the newest one posted on Mindy's facebook page along with 13 others today. 

Just wanted to share a little Grandma happiness for my little week out baby who I am sure is meeting his big sisters this week-end. Should be fun for all. 

Just wanted to share these pictures, which I have been meaning to do all week, but then I just had the one so aren't you glad I waited :)

Have a great week-end and spend some time with your kids and grandkids.
