FBW #233 Blue, Green, Yellow challenge
Our sponsor this week at Wicked Wednesday is KennyK who supplied the DT with some fabulous images for this week's Sporty Girls challenge. 
After printing the sentiment on yellow cardstock, I drew red lines and used a paper piercer to give the look of real softball stitching. To finish it off, I used a brad from a superhero set for the extra "WHAAAACK" that this ATC needed, lol!

WW #76 Spring Fever Reminder

Denice - Reminder
Do you wonder if I'll ever run out of inchies to add to my ATC's?! I'm thinking it's not going to happen for a very looooooooong time because I have such an abundance of every color and theme you can think of. Maybe I should be thankful that the hostess of the 1000 Inchie Swap  I was in flaked on all of us?!! Nah, 3 years later and I'm still PO'd, lol.
You have until 7:00 pm EST to join us at Wicked Wednesday for this week's Spring Fever challenge....additional inspiration and a link can be found HERE.

TGF FFF Sparkle & Shine

Aaaack....I made this card for two TGF challenges but didn't get it posted in time for the Chevron/Aqua challenge, hopefully I'll make it before today's deadline for the FFF Sparkle & Shine challenge.

Glitter Bean is oozing in glitter, which I felt like too after finishing with her sparkly hair. And seriously, who doesn't love a multi-colored pastel chevron print?!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great Thursday!

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

#231 Anything with Wings challenge

Aaaack, you've got to stop by Wicked Wednesday to see some of the fabulous ATC's my fellow teamies created using Rick St. Dennis' images for this week's Show Us Your Fangs challenge. Twisted and creative...that's how I describe them, both the ATC's and the images, lol!

The background for this ATC was a blunder and I swear I'm going to take some mixed media classes because I really want to know how to create some of the beautiful backgrounds that I see in blogland.  I started by spraying water color paper with a couple different colors of LSG and hoping they would "drip" down...but that didn't happen. I used Distress Ink around the edges, then  glued some red glitter to the top, yet I still wasn't happy with the way it was turning out, so I threw it on my craft desk and walked away. I came back the next day, colored and cropped the I've Got a Headache image, set it down to do something else and when I looked over, the image had miraculously been placed over the background in almost this manner. Worked for me!

Hope you'll join us!
Happy Wednesday,

FBW #231 Any Winged Creature

You can let your fairies and butterflies fly free this week's because the challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is Any Winged Creature, which opens up your options for images....think birds, owls, angels, insects,  mythical...soooooo many choices!

I stamped this wonderful bumblebee stamp from Inkadinkadoo three times, and paired it with some MME The Sweetest Thing DP. The bees were lightly colored with Copics, then I used silver mesh bling, buttons and twine to complete the card.
We would love to have you join us and  I sure hope you will! You can do your project and see some amazing DT inspiration HERE.

Thanks for stopping by, your comments always make me smile.

Wicked Wednesday #74 Pin-Up Girls

Please scroll down for this week's FBW #230 OPEN challenge

Pin-Up girls go on calendars, right?! At least that's what I remember from my father's workshop!  As soon as I saw this image I knew I had to use it for the monthly ATC calendar I'm in the process of creating. 

Sassy Studio Designs provided the entire Wicked Wednesday DT with a couple of adorable images to work with this week and I chose Pin-Up Bunny with her floppy ears and fluffy tail. The March calendar stamp is from CTMH. Paper Studio DP, a large filigree sticker, Distress Inks, and a couple of rhinestones were used to complete this ATC.

You have until next Tuesday evening to join Wicked Wednesday in this fun challenge, feel free to link your ATC HERE.


FBW #230 Open Challenge

This week's OPEN challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is sponsored by Pattie's Creations who generously provided the DT with images to work with. I chose the image called Fairy Pattieboop to work with.
I started by printing the image twice...once on white card stock in purple ink, and the second time on green card stock in black ink. I wasn't in the mood to color the images, instead I decided to use very pale colors to highlight it in a few places on the tag. For the notepad, I left the image even plainer on the green card stock.  A few flowers, ribbon, and rhinestones and a sentiment were added to both.

We'd love to have you join us at Flutter By Wednesday this week, and don't forget that even though the challenge is OPEN, you still need to have a butterfly and/or fairy on your project. Feel free to stop by the FBW blog to see the wonderful inpiration that my fellow teamies came up with.
Happy Wednesday,

WW Ribbons & Bows Reminder

For today's post I used my Crafty Secrets Support the Girls stamp set that I bought a few years ago when a very close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer....thankfully, she is presently cancer free. With that said, I'm going to remind you to perform your monthly breast self-exam because the good news is that the five year breast cancer survival rate exceeds 95% when detected early!

The background on this ATC shimmers in a very elegant was sprayed with a variety of LSG sprays and TH Frayed Burlap was used around the edges.  Victorian Velvet was smudged on the side, and the sentiment was stamped over the smudging. The ribbons were fussy cut and glued down.

You have until 7:00 pm EST Tuesday evening to join us at Wicked Wednesday for this week's Ribbons & Bows challenge. If you need additional inspiration besides the $10 in-store GC from our sponsor Dilly Beans,  you can check out what my fellow teamies came up HERE...your mojo will definitely get a kick-start!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Saturday!
