Just a Little devil! But, way to cute to spook!

The inside of the card I will add a sentiment later!

A closer look at the image!

When I colored this cute image I had a horrid head cold and had taken a strong cold medicine. That is my excuse for all the wild colors! LOL! IRL it is a pretty card, but I don't know what I was thinking with pink, red orange, brown, gold and green! At least the image found at THE PAPER SHELTER
is adorable and would look good no matter what colors you use! Our challenge this time is "Halloween"! So, put on your spooky hats, and grab a fun image from THE PAPER SHELTER and join the fun. Remember you can win a fantastic prize. The die cut flowers are from a Magnolia Doo-Hickey and the cute little pumpkin came from a CTMH party that I attended years ago! Funny how you can keep things around and for a long time and then they work perfectly on something you are making!  Have a day that is filled with blessings. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Spooky
In the cool of the evening
When everything is getting kind of groovy
You call me up and ask me
Would I like to go with you and see a movie?
First I say no, I've got some plans for tonight
And then I stop and say "all right"
Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little girl like you

Math???? Not For Me!

I don't know how I ended up with so many pictures of this card. I think I was playing with the free watermark and trying it out. Anyway, this is a Saturated Canary image. I love all of SC images that have glasses. Maybe it was because I wore glasses in Jr. High and this SC image reminds me much of myself at that age. I made the little math book and was pleased with how it turned out. Just a fun little card that I enjoyed making. (My mental therapy!)
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: He Knows My Name
I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands
I have a Father
He calls me His own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And He hears me when I call

A Wee Story?

This is a "Wee Stamp" by Sylvia Zet. She has such cute stamps. I am not sure what is going on with my picture taking, but those brown spots that keep showing up on the hair are not there IRL. I even tried to set my camera to make the picture brighter. The problem with that is the skin tones looked faded and the hair still showed up with the brown spots.  Since we are to have stormy skies I don't think the light situation is going to improve. But, I may try again.

"V" is for Vibrant! or Something to Crow About!

It is time for another fun challenge at ABC CHALLENGE!  The year has just flew by and we are already on the letter "V". Our lovely sponsor is Oak Pond Creations and Marker Pop. Both are favorites of mine! I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this silly rooster. He just begged to be colored with vibrant colors. I added some liquid glass to his eyes and it made them pop! If you have not checked out their fun images I hope you will hop on over and do won't be disappointed! I colored the image with my Copic markers. Marker Pop has great prices on all their markers and they fill their orders in a jiffy! I can't wait to see what you come up with! Hope it is something fun like this guy! RRRRREROO!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: (Peter Pan) I've Gotta Crow
Not me,
It's just that I am what I am
And I'm me!
When I look at myself
And I see in myself
All the wonderful things that I see
If I'm pleased with myself
I have ev'ry good reason to be.
I've gotta crow!
I'm just the cleverest fellow
'Twas ever my fortune to know;
I taught a trick to my shadow
To stick to the tip of my toe
I've gotta crow!

 A closer look!

Paper Shelter Challenge....Shabby Chic

If you follow my blog you will know that I struggle am creatively challenged wit 'Shabby Chic'. I love it when someone else does it, but woe is me when I have to make a Shabby Chic card. Unfortunately (for me) that is our next challenge at THE PAPER SHELTER!  This card is supposed to inspire you. LOL! Well, I gave it my best shot and I must admit I love the image I used. She is called "Victoria" and you can click on the link to go directly to the Store. I colored her with Copics and then cut the image out with a circle stitched die. I then mounted the die on a Spellbinders die cut. Pretty gold liquid pearls helped to pop the corners. I used a gold 'Frantage' around the image. (Obviously, I need to practice with this also.) Some bingo tickets, corner die cuts, rhinestone  brads, and additional liquid pearls finish of my 'shabby but maybe not so chic' card. I hope you all will join us in this challenge....I will be looking forward to learning something from each of you. Have a blessed day! 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Song: Bicycle Built For Two
Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do!
I'm half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.

"U" Is For Unique or Anything Goes!

 A Closer Look!
I don't know about you but I love "Anything Goes" for a challenge. Not only do we get to see a variety of cards/projects but we also get to have fun with our inspiration projects. In case you haven't guessed it our challenge this time at ABC CHALLENGE is the letter "U" for Unique  so anything goes! Our lovely sponsor is Stamp and Create. You can find such a nice variety of images in their lovely shop. Hop on over and grab a new image and play with us in our challenge! I am using a Saturated Canary Image but there are many others to choose from. I chose this image because she is a unique character! 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Song: I've Got To Be Me
Whether I'm right or whether I'm wrong
Whether I find a place in this world or never belong
I gotta be me, I've gotta be me
What else can I be but what I am
I want to live, not merely survive
And I won't give up this dream
Of life that keeps me alive
I gotta be me, I gotta be me
The dream that I see makes me what I am
