Anything Goes at 2 Cute Ink Challenge


It's time for a new challenge over at 2 Cute Ink Challenge.  This time we are hosting "anything goes".  We want to see what you are working on.  You don't have to use a 2 Cute Ink image but we sure would love to see them!  I have used "Harry Potter Owl" for my card.  This is a really fun set.  It also comes with a witch hat, a broom, and beakers bubbling with a brew.  I would love to see you pick this set up at the Etsy store and make a card with him.  He is a lot of fun.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Come and Get It - Things with Wings

New Release day at Doodle Pantry

Today is the 1st of September which means a new digital release at Doodle Pantry!  WooHoo!  This release has so many different fun sets you will flip.  I used the set Toothpaste and Toothbrush for my first project.  I thought it would make an amazing anniversary card for a fun couple.  This set comes colored in a lot of different colors plus a fun set of digital paper to match.  But, I always have to color mine on my own - it's my favorite part.  I hope you will hop on over to the Doodle Pantry store or blog and see all the different sets to start off your month with a bang!
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Just Add Ink - Photo - rainbow
4 Crafty Chicks - Old and New (old paper, new image)
Aud Sentiments - Any Sentiment but Birthday
Charisma Cardz - Anniversary

Gifts for Teacher

This evening I made some teacher gifts.  I used the "sour cream container" idea.  I used school themed paper.  The dies are from My Craft Spot, they are called Tiny Doilies 2 and the stamp is from the Stamping All Around Fall set.  They are filled with school supplies for the teacher.  Clips, colored staples, push pins, and rubber bands.  The brads on the tags are from Around the Block and I have had them for so many years.  Finally time to use up some of my old supplies.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
My Craft Spot - Back to School
(PIN)spirational - Back to School
Oldie But Goodie - Anything But a Card
Creative Moments - Back to School
Ruby's Rainbow - Back to School

We're like - Peas and Carrots

Today is Delightful Thursday and I have a couple's card for you.  This set is called "Peas and Carrots".  This would make a fun wedding or anniversary card.  Not every couple are the normal bride and groom.  This is such a fun and happy image.  I printed the image on the green and orange cardstock and paper pieced them.  The cardstock has a shimmer to it.  I hope you will come on over to the Digital Delights blog and see what the other design team members have made for today.
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Sisterhood of Crafters - Fancy Folds
Crafty Creations - Something Old (my designer paper and cardstock are old, so is the ribbon)
Just Inkspirational - Wedding (mine is for a fun couple)

Stop to smell the flowers


Have you stopped to smell any flowers lately?  Life goes by us so quickly that I need to be reminded of that.  This darling image is from a new designer.  The image is called "Stop to smell the flowers" and it is by Karleigh Sue. She has an Etsy store.  She also has a facebook page.   But....you can get the image free right now.  I got it from the Love To Create challenge blog.  I had a good time paper piecing her outfit together.

You know the saying, "it's 5 o'clock somewhere", well, this adorable crab agrees. =)  Have you joined the "red, blue, and orange" challenge over at 2 Cute Ink??  If not, get on over and join in the fun!!  You don't even have to use a 2 Cute Ink Images.  Any image or sentiment will work great.  The colors might sound odd together but actually it is a fun combo.  I hope you will come on over and get in on the fun!  This fun image is one of the 2 Cute Ink images called Tropical Drink Crab and the sentiment is from the Beach/Crab Sentiments.

Dizzy Dachshund

It's a jumping wiener dog.  We have a dog just like this in our home.  Her name is Sandy.  This cute image and perfect sentiment are from Doodle Pantry.  The set is called Dizzy Dachshund.  The background has been painted with watercolor.  It is supposed to be the sky, clouds, and grass under and behind this cutie.  I used the Twinkling H2O's again.  I watched and watched video's on You Tube.  This watercolor painting is a real talent and I need a lot more practice.  But, I'm not giving up yet.  
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Perfectly Rustic - Photo - I took the colors
101 Watercolor - Masking Part 2
