"Anything Goes"

It's time for an easy challenge at KKKG's! It is an "Anything Goes"! Let your creative juices flow and use one of Kenny K's fantastic images and enter  your project to win a great set of prizes! Michelle's Scrapbooking Store is offering a $15 gift certificate to her fabulous store and Kenny K is giving you 5 digi images. It is win, win, all the way around. I decided to do a Birthday card. I get a kick out of this image she just looks like she is doing a fair amount of flirting! I colored the image with Copics and added a little Spica pen to give her a bit of sparkle. I also added a little liquid glass to her boots and sunglasses. I think it added much more dimension! I punched the paper lace with a Die-Namics die. I also used a Lifestyle die to give the framing edges more interest. Some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and fern leaves finished off this card. You can enter your cards at

Friend to Friend

I don't know why the yellow looks so intense in this real life it is a very soft buttery yellow. LOL! I loved the sketch at "Mojo Monday" this week. It just went together so nice for me! Today I was reminded how blessed I am with my friends. Just a sample of who touched my life today, Elaine, Donalda, Glenda, Amanda, Janie, Shirley, Patti Sue (the other one) and a local friend Glenda. Each brightened my day in a different way. I had to stop and say a prayer for each of them as they are such a blessing in my life. I think each of us should practice reaching out to others, don't you?
Now for my card. I colored my darling little Maggie image with Copics. I used one of my new Spellbinder dies to frame her, all of my dp paper is from my scrap box. I added a lovely ribbon (a gift from Amanda). I just love how it sparkles and the swirls are embossed. My sentiment is from an old SU set and framed with a Spellbinder label die. I added half pearls and a rose from LOTV. I used a McGill punch for the fern and a MS punch for the lace edge. A little flower soft added a soft fuzzy tail to the bunny and finished off my card.  I am entering this card at the following challenges:

"Happy Birthday Logan"

I just fell in love with this little 'Cowboy'! I think he is so cute and makes the perfect birthday card for my grandson. (Actually for any little boy!) I made the card up in two different ways just because I was having so much fun playing with this image. Both of my dp is from DC with a view. The image is a digi from  they have some of the cutest images there. I colored the image with Copics. The first card I used a MS boarder punch  and added some ric-rac (thanks Amanda!) I also added metal corners a little twine and a Whimsy ticket sentiment. The second card I used a MS boarder punch (kind of reminded me of prickly pear cacti LOL) I embossed it with a Sizzix paisley embossing folder. I then added a brown scrap piece and two metal ribbon holders (the ribbon is also from Amanda). I finished off this card with some self-adhesive cording and a Whimsy ticket sentiment.

"Pink And Tough"

I love this image, maybe because my mom wanted a 'girly' girl and I was such a tomboy. So, for me it was perfect for the 'pink' challenge this week at KKKG's. I colored this cute little image with Copics. I cut the image out and mounted it on a die cut circle. I used a Die-Namic die for the lace and clipped and glued it to the circle. I cut two tabs and embossed them with a SU embossing folder. A pink felt button and a resin sentiment finished off my card. There are some FANTASTIC prizes this week.
Kenny K is offering the winner 5 digi images and Wild Orchid Crafts is also sponsoring a prize....darn I wish I could play! LOL!
Hop on over to KKKG's to play this week!

"Girls Rule"

I hardly ever use orange when I am card making. But, I found this cute dp in my stash and just had to make it up in a card. I used my Copics to color this cute little h'Angler. I used my MS punches for the lace boarders. My sweet friend Amanda sent me some of the loveliest ribbons and this one was just perfect for my card. My lovely flower was made by my other dear friend Glenda...isn't it just the prettiest? The sentiment is a tag from Whimsy. I added three half pearls to finish off my card.
