Absolutely Fabulous

Hello :) Here we are at the end of another weekend. Ummmmmm, weekends need to be alot longer ;)

Today I have the final card I did for the Week of Challenges over at Club Anya.

This challenge was to use your favorite sketch. I used the sketch from a week or so from Friday Sketchers #64. This time tho, I turned the sketch sideways. There is so much you can do with just this one sketch, I guess that is why I like it sooo much!!!

The cardstock and patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink. The color combo I used is their new color Enchanted Evening. Anya from the Dressy Anya collection, looks so cute in this color, very sophisticated :)

Hope you have the good rest of your Sunday evening. I am gonna go finish dinner so I can go and comment on the rest of the entry's.

See you all tomorrow :)

Smile & Shine Hippie Style

Hello all!!!! Happy Saturday :)

I hope everyone is getting in some crafting time and really creating!!

I have decided this weekend is going to be staying home and relaxing. I get to craft and finish up a few projects I have been meaning to do.

My card today is another challenge over at Club Anya's Week of Challenges!! This particular card was made for Thursdays challenge called Smile and Shine. You still have until tomorrow evening to participate. Go check it out. This is alot of fun and everyone is so nice!!!!

I haven't played with my new Hippie Anya, so I decided what better way to use her than to make her shine and sparkly. The patterned paper is glittered and I added glitter to her headband, necklace and bracelets.

The sentiment is from a stamp set called Mod Squad from Papertrey Ink. I thought it fit Hippie Anya perfectly :)

I added some glitter around the edge of the sentiment box and then drew freehand (there is a reason why I do not draw for a living, hehehehe) the peace sign.

I hope you liked it and if you haven't already, please check out the Club Anya blog and join in :)

Brown & Blue Style

WhoooooHooooo, it is Thursday!!!!! That means only one more day before the weekend and relaxing time :)

I hope you all are having a very good week. It has been a crazy week here, trying to get into a routine for school and work, hopefully all the bugs will work out soon.

Yesterday's challenge over at Club Anya was to create a project using the colors brown and blue. I LOVE brown and pink together, so I figure if I think of the blue as pink, I should be good. Brown and blue REALLY looks good together :) It is going to be a new color combo for me.

I used the sketch challenge CPS128 over at CPS-Card Sketches. This sketch was really fun. If you have not taken a look over there, do, LOTS of inspiration :)

The stamp I used is from The Greeting Farm called Dahlia in the Wild Sprouts section. She is too cute.

The cardstock is Spring Rain and patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink. The crochet flowers I made to match the Spring Rain cardstock.

Have a Happy Thursday!!!!!

Enjoy the Moment Anya style

Hello and a HAPPY WEDNESDAY to you!!!!!!!

I have something, funny to share with you today. Remember yesterday when I told you that over at Club Anya, they are doing challenges all week and they have to do with Back 2 School things. Well the challenge for yesterday the challenge was CRAZY HAIR DAY :)

I remembered to doing that when I was in school and then helping my daughter do weird things with her hair. So, when I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for this challenge, it popped into my head that I had a picture of my daughter on one of her crazy hair days. We never did the same thing year after year. She loved trying different things each time. The picture below is from 8 or 9 years old. It was when I still had my baby and not a teenager, LOL!!!!

I used The Greeting Farm, Butterfly Anya, but just eliminated her wings. The hair that is standing straight up, is actually from Nurse Anya's hair :) It was perfect!!!

The sketch for this card I used a challenge from Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm. It seemed to really fit the image and work very well I think.

Here is my inspiration picture :) VERY FUNNY!!! I laughed and laughed at this picture while making my card. Love it!! Yup, yup, she has blue hair. That was her favorite color then, so after I finished drying the egg whites to make her hair stand up, I had to color with blue spray.

I am off to get back to work so I can work on the next challenge :) I hope you all have a great Wednesday!!

Teacher Anya Note Board

I hope every ones week has gotten off to a great start!!!

Today, I have a little project I created for a challenge over at Club Anya. They are having challenges all week and you can win prizes, whooooohoooo!!!!!

Today's challenge was Back 2 School. I am so excited that my daughter is back in school, except I can soooo do without the 5:30 wake up time, so not me :)

I decided that I wanted to make a Note Board for one of her teachers. She had her for part of the year for math and then got pushed up since she was finishing her work within 5 min of class, and then when we found out she had her this year for math again we were excited. I really liked her. I hope she likes it :)

I started with a 8x10 clear acrylic panel from Kits2Remember. LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! I stamped Teacher Anya from The Greeting Farm with black Staz-on ink. I flipped the panel over and used sharpies to color her in. The black strip in the middle is black twill ribbon from Papertrey Ink. On either side of it is white paper and patterned paper also for Papertrey Ink. I stamped "NOTES" in black staz-on ink. Punched a couple holes in the corners and attached ribbon, and that is all there is to it :) So easy, literally took like 10 min.

I hope you have a great Tuesday!!!!

Make A Wish!!!!

Happy Monday!!!!

I am gonna start this week off REAL good :) I have projects lined up for you all and I have plenty more ideas overflowing in my head that I need to get onto paper!!

I am really having fun coloring in these cute images from Inky Impressions. They are just the cutest things.

This card I made for 3 different challenges, whoooooohoooo, I am on a roll.

First up is the Sketch Challenge #77 over at Taylored Expressions. This was a fun sketch to play with. If you haven't already, go check it out, so fun.

For the next challenge, you are to use a birthday theme for this challenge over at Stamp with Fun. This was cool since I was already coloring this image and it worked perfectly for this challenge.

For the third challenge over at Copic Creations, you were to color eyes. Ummmmm, I REALLY need to purchase images that have bigger eyes to color, so I can practice more. This challenge is being sponsored by InStyle Stamps and the images that they gave the design team are awesome, so I will be shopping there for sure, as soon as I get my paycheck, hehehehe.

The designer paper is Autumn Leaves. I got it on clearance at Michael's awhile back.The colors are so vibrant in real life. The red ribbon is May Arts. The cardstock, Whisper White and Pure Poppy, is from Papertrey Ink. Oh and the sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink, Mega Mixed Messages.

I hope you all have a very good Monday. I am off to get some work done, and I mean some. Not sure yet how much is some but I will figure it out soon I am sure :) I really want to get back in the craft room before I get my daughter and the 2 neighbor girls from school.

Mojo Monday 98

Here is another card I finished yesterday while I was in my crafty mode :)

I used the sketch over at Mojo Monday Sketch Blog. I can always count on a very well sketch each week. It is always helps when I want the thinking to be done for me.

I also wanted to use some of my stamps that don't get enough love from me. It is so sad. I wanted to make sure these were inked up.

The stamp set I used is from Verve Stamps. If you have not realized it yet, but I LOVE flowers. I am telling you, I don't know what it is actually, but I am a real sucker when it comes to them.

The cardstock, ink and "hello" sentiment I used is from Papertrey Ink. The colors are Lemon Tart and Scarlet Jewel. The "hello" is from Mega Mixed Messages.

The flourish stamp is from a really good friend, Jessica, over at Kits2Remember. I met her at a class I took at a local scrapbook store and always loved going and really looked forward to it. She moved to Florida and the local store closed, so I don't get to see her. The stamp is one of many flourish stamps they have. If I am not mistaken, it was her sister-in-law that drew them up. So awesome!!!!

I almost forgot, the main image is one of the flowers and I drew a pencil line around one of my nestabilities on my cardstock and I stamped the first flower and masked it and stamped again until I got completely around. There were a couple empty spots so I used a smaller flower from the same set, making sure I masked the big flowers before stamping. I really like the effect it created, hope you do to.

I think I am done for todays posting. I will save the rest for this week.

Hope to see you back here agin!!!

I'm here for you

Hello again :) One more card before I sit back down at the craft table.

I made this card for 2 different challenges. I really like that I can try and combine some challenges. It actually, for me anyways, is a bit harder to create. Trying to make sure the you have what you need for the different challenges in one card. It makes my brain work a little harder, hehehehe.

For the first challenge is over at Stampin for the Weekend. This is a sketch challenge :) Whoohooo, another thing already done for you just need to in put the elements. I really liked this sketch too. I can see so many different outcomes with just this one sketch.

The second challenge is from A Spoon Full of Sugar. This challenge is right up my alley, use FLOWERS!!! Love flowers and if I could put them on EVERY card I would ;)

I really liked the way it came out. Soooo pretty in person. It is actually being mailed tomorrow to my grandma. She is going thru some rough times right now with her health, so I am hoping it is going to put a smile on her face. She lives in a different state then me, so seeing her in person is very hard.

All supplies for this card is from Papretrey Ink.

Friends Forever

Hello!!! I hope everyone is having a very good weekend. I know I was in need of some crafting time. Life seems to have overtaken my craft time and I missed it tremulously.

Since I have not been in the craft room for a bit, my crafty mojo seems to be on vacation, LOL!!! So what better way to get in the swing of things by doing some challenges. Boy was in nice to create.

This card is actually for 3 different challenges, crazy but I did it.

The card sketch is from Friday Sketchers. I REALLY like this sketch, I actually made another card from this sketch too, but I will show you that one a different day. You still have to time to enter, so go try it :)

The second challenge is from Whimsy Stamps Challenges. For this challenge you needed to make a friendship card.

And for the third challenge is from Inky Impressions Challenges. This is a color challenge. You needed to use Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip & Pixie Pink. These colors are all from Stampin Up. If you do not have those colors, you just need to use something close to it. I used Certainly Celery ribbon and Chocolate Chip on the small rectangle. I did not have Baja Breeze or Pixie Pink, so I used some patterned paper that was close to the Baja Breeze and for the pink I used Hibiscus Burst from Papertrey Ink.

The patterned paper is Basic Grey-Lemonade collection. The Copic markers I used to color in the image were, E00, E25, E55, Y18, YG25, R59, RV14.

Ok, I am off for a bit. I have a few more challenge cards to post, but need to take photos.

Hope to see you all back here soon!!!!

Inky Impressions 2nd Design Team Call

I LOVE these little girl images from Inky Impressions.

I saw one of the images online and HAD to look them up and when I ordered I was looking around and found that they were having a Design Team call. What lucky timing, I must say :)

As soon as I got my order, I had to stamp a few and color. Coloring is so much fum and I am really liking the images that I can sit and play with my markers.

This card, was very simple. The background is actually a sheet of designer paper with the blue strip already on it. I really like how it looks like she is sitting on it.

The next two pics are a couple of my favorite projects that I have put on my blog. I have others that I really like also so it is very hard to just pick one, kwim?

Happy Anyaversary Blog Hop


I hope everyone is having a wonderful time Blog Hoppin for the Anya-versay :)

I am in love with these images. They are so fun to color and are just the cutiest!!!

I won't be chatty right now, I want you to be able to get around to all the participants blogs.

I really like butterflies and flowers, so when I saw this cute Anya, I HAD to have it. I used a glitter pen to add some sparkle, and I mean LOTS of sparkle in real life, lol!!! I wrapped ribbon around the layer and added punched butterflies to it, for a different effect. Hope you like it.

Have fun and Happy Anya-versay!!!!!!!
