Tweeeens -Mo's digital Challenge 44

I colored this image a while ago. It was a digital image from Mo Manning. I just love her work. And the colors happen to fit in the inspiration picture for the week at Mos' Digital Challenge. So I threw together a card and linked it to her challenge.
Nothing fancy for the sketch, I actually partially lifted a sketch from The Bella Digi Studio Challenge Blog.

Now off- I have 3 birthday cards to get done before thursday!!!!Ugggg! Why do I wait until last minute!!

Just Hanging Around

My first Lili of the Valley stamp and my first Lili of the Valley Challenge.
This week at LOTVs Challenge Blog the task at hand was to make a card to represent Spring, Summer, or Winter.

I thought this cute little guy reminds me of summer.
i used Basic Grey Oliver DP, a few large red brads and copics and prismas.

Skull Boyz

My 15 year old son has recently began skate boarding.
I thought these Skull Boyz were pretty cool, so I ordered them and will give this to him for his B-day in two weeks.

i used copics and prismacolor pencils to color this. I cut out the second skater and used foam backed tape to make him look a little more 3-D

Baubles- The Sugar bowl 41 and Basic Grey 26

This week's challenge over at the Sugarbowl is a sketch challenge.
I had such a hard time with this challenge.

At first I thought what a great way to use Baubles, but as I choose the DP it just went down hill.
I think my coloring came out great, but this sketch was difficult.
Instead of a star, I scanned the Basic Grey DP Mistle Toe and Pears and blew up the snowflake.
I originally thought that would look cool since i used the original DP behind it on one of the layers.
But the layers cover up the base DP which is also by BG and has ornaments all over it.
I added some pearl embellishments and I think that helped,but this is not one of my favorite cards!
And since pearls are the challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges I can use it there too!

Feel Better Quick

My boss' husband fell dow the stairs and broke his neck recently. Luckily the damage is not as bad as it could be. He will be laid up for months with a neck brace and depending on how he heels, may need surgery. For now, he is laid up in a reclining bed. I thought this Bugaboo Nurse Margret card would cheer him up a little. I hope his visiting nurse doesn't like her.
Anyway- feel better soon - Colin

Just for You

I just received this image in a swap and thought it was a great summer image. This is Lilly at the Beach from Pink Cat Studios. I aded a little glitter on her he mermaid tail. I also just got a new Martha Stuart punch and thought it matched the scales or Lilly's tail.

Sugar Bowl # 40- Poinsettia

The challenge over at the Sugar Bowl is to choose your own sketch and choose your own prize!

I choose Poinsettia by Sugar Nellie and choose sketch #36.
I used K & Company winter wonderland. I can use this for one of my Christmas cards this year since I need about 60 of them.
