This Week over at Sew Many Challenges, we are hosting a sketch challenge, and our sponsor is Inktegrity! I was able to play with their "High There" images from the "Going Places Series"!

To me this little plane was all about being a I had to work out of my comfortable little box and think "B O Y".....I am telling you, it is hard for me to work in these colors....LOL I did have fun trying to design something different....and I even like how it turned out!

I wanted the airplane to appear to be flying....pulling the sentiment behind it, so I used the cloud to reference to sky....Does it work for you??? I hope it can let me know, my comment link is at the top of the post!

Awww, Doesn't little Zee just make you
wanna take a nap too?!?!?!

I made this card to play along with this weeks challenge over at
Totally Papercraft! The theme of this Challenge is "Lots of Spots"! AND is being sponsored by Sew Many Cards!!!

LOL...I sure had fun trying to load my card with SPOTS! I decided to use this darling image from
Sew Many Cards, not only because Zee is so cute....but because there are spots on the moon!! (Holes are spots...right?!?!) LOL

I started with a purple and white dotted paper, then layered another paper with colored spots...a stripe of pink card stock I embossed with spots & dots, added a spotted ribbon...and of course I had to finish with lots of Mini-Bling spots!!!

It was a lot of fun to see how many spots and dots I could fit on one card!!! You have to give it a try too....Visit
Totally Papercraft and show us your spots! Don't forget to tell me what you think of my spots before you comment link is above the photo!!!!

My Hubby Is My Knight in Shining Armor! fitting is this darling Dragon from Dustin Pike! Once I saw it I knew I was going to use it for my Hubby's card! I dressed it up for Valentine's day with a few sentiments from the Cutting Cafe, one on his banner and one on his shield...and the L O V E across the top!

I colored this card with Prismacolors, some paper from my stash, I just love the purple paper...and the green, has a faint heart pattern on it. I don't count the shiny spots as bling....they are metal dots and I refer to them as "studs" since this is a "manly" card....LOL...My DD did not agree with me... The studs are blue and silver. I popped the "love" and the other sentiments up with foam glue dots.

Overall I like how it turned out, I feel like it is a fun and playful card. Kinda like us!

Love to hear what you think about it too! My comment like is above the post....

Hope You all had the chance to spend Valentine's Day with the ones you Love!

I received this sweet image from Karen's Doodles during her recent Follower Freebie! Karen generously gave each of her followers an image of OUR Choice!! How cool is that!! But I have to tell you the hardest part was picking which ONE!!!! If you have not visited her blog yet...and you like Cute, Sweet, fun and Adorable.....You need to!!!

This image is called "I Didn't Do It". LOLOLOL...I love the look on the Dog's face...he is so Happy to see you....even with a part of the pillow hanging from his face!!! How could you be mad?!?!? I couldn't....
I really enjoyed making this card...I colored the pillow to match the paper, put little...I mean teenie tiny, silver beard on his collar for a couple very fitting, if I may say so, feather charms to the bow and a few coordinating "skittle"/Dew Drops.
If you think he is as cute as I do....Let me know!!! My comment link is at the top of the post!

I knew I wanted to do something with this image from Digital Delights when I saw it...I just wasn't sure what! So after printing it out and looking at it for 2 days, I decided on this background paper. Well if you can call it feels like a thin felt...but it had these great Silver Swirls on it that I loves for this image of Loving Cupid.

After I decide on the paper the rest was easy....I colored the image, added these great little conversation hearts form the
Cutting Cafe...layered them on a mat sliver square, then light blue, then a shiny/mirror silver. I tied a ribbon/cord around the middle one and added a tiny little heart charm to it...I really like that! I knotted some more of the ribbon/cord and sandwiched it between the tiles for the conversation hearts...some stickles on the arrow, some shimmerz on his wings...a touch of bling and there you have it!

I like the non-traditional colors for this card....Do you? Let me hear your thoughts....a comment link is above the photo!!

It's Challenge Time!
Challenge 3 at Sew Many Challenges is a color challenge...
Red, Black & Silver! I love this color combination!!

This week's challenge is sponsored by The Cutting Cafe.
The cutting cafe blinkie
The winner will receive 3 stamp sets of your choice! Very Cool, don't you think?!?!?

For this challenge I combined a Sew Many Cards image, Eris with a Cutting Cafe Image, Truly...Madly...Deeply.... I love both the images, Best Part, there is a song by Savage Garden, Truly Madly Deeply, which is "our song" this was perfect for me!!

The hardest part I faced with this challenge was my background paper...I had a paper in mind, but it was black and white....I wanted to try only using black and red for the back ground! So I punched the edge of the paper for some detail, embellished around the punch and added the silver ribbon. I popped up the cheeks and trunk on Eris for a little depth and painted her toes to show off her little sassy attitude! LOL
