...little fighter....DAY #3 of 80's TRIVIA!

I was going through my coloured images (i have a lot, i love to colour!) and i came across this cutie from MFT! Dana had stamped these for me and i haven't even used them yet!!

I thought it would fit perfect with the Sweet Sunday Challenge! I coloured the little mouse with copics and cut him out with nesties.

All my papers are from my scrap bin. My base is PTI white with basic grey and then some pink flamingo dsp from SU and a piece of My Minds Eye orange paper.

The ribbon is from my stash, its all i had left! Yikes!

I finished off the card with some primas with a bella dot in the center!

Now onto some Trivia...

On Sept 15th i posted about Abby...this song was my best friend Kristen's wedding the band...:)

I will draw a winner tomorrow for a Willow stamp and a SU black stampin spot!

The winner for yesterdays challenge is Ksneia
with the correct answer of Skid Row! Message me with your addy

...dream warriors....

I finally got to play with a Bella challenge on SCS! I love Jamies sketches so i thought i would play along!

This is a card kit i had hanging around, i have a few Halloween ones i want to use up for this year!

For this kit i swapped out the image and used a Tidly Ink By Stamping Bella! She is soooooo cute! I think i got her in a swap!

I coloured her with copics and cut her out with nesties.

My base is PTI white with basic black and the dsp is from the kit. So is the ribbon and brads! I love the sentiment too!

So today's 80's Trivia... On Sept 19th i used a Title of a song and the singer is from Canada. Name the band!

I will draw a winner tomorrow for a black SU stampin spot and Cheffa huggabugg!! Good luck:)

...oh sweet child o mine.... DAY #1 of 80's Trivia!!

Who's ready for winter?? Not me!! lol Looks like Tilda is though!

I have had her coloured for a while now, but was never sure what to do with her.

So i went through some of my scraps and went to work.

I coloured Tilda with copics and cut her out with nesties.

My card base is PTI with some chocolate chip. The dsp is a bunch of SU paper from my stash that was in my scrap pile. I also used some ribbon from my stash.

I then went to work punching out snowflakes with my martha stewart punch. I put some bella bon bons in the middle of them.

So you ready for your trivia question??

Name the band that sings the song that i used on my blog Sept 21st!! :) Pretty easy if you were brushing up on your 80's music ;)

I will announce the winner tomorrow of this lovely winter sweater tilda and a SU black stampin spot!!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the LULU blog hop!! I am so glad i bought some of these darlings when i was at the Bella store last week! Please start your blog hop HERE!
If you came here from Arlene you are right on track!!

For my card i used Gertie, she is so sweet! I paper pieced everything on her but her face which i used copics to colour. I also used one of my gelly roll pens for her tights and shoes. I then cut her out with a nestie.

The paper is from the Stamping Bella store, i think it said something about a Dude Collection or i threw out the name! duh...

I then used a strip from the back of it for the bottom with some ribbon from my stash on top. I used some bella dots on the ends.

To finish off my card i used some of my black sparkly primas with some bella bon bons in the middle!

Well happy hopping! Next you are off to see Julie!

Well this is my last Digi Shack card as a DT member! :( So sad but i will still use their stamps because they rock!!

The challenge this week is Fall colours! Well i had this Lani coloured and Halloween is one of my fave things about Fall so i made a Halloween card!

Witch Lani is coloured with copics and cut out with nesties, layered on basic black and pumpkin pie cardstock and popped with lots of pop dots!

The paper is that last piece of Halloween paper i have from SU:( sniff sniff Their may be enough to make one more card.

I finished off the card with some brads from my stash, SU ribbon and the sentiment is teeny tiny wishes!

...shes my cherry pie....

First let me apologize for the crappy pictures...i think my camera is on its way out the door:( I may get a new one soon!!

Well today is Lindsay Thursday...and i discovered a cupcake stamp of hers i haven't used i just had to get back to the sweet side of stamping!! ;)

I pulled out one of Taylors Key Ingredients kits, and it was all cupcakes, how cool! There were even these pre-cut cupcakes so i just had to use one!

I covered the base with some paper from the kit and stamped the sentiment from Crazy for cupcakes on the bottom.

For the inside i used Lindsay's cupcake tree and coloured it with copics and cut it out with a nestie.

I used some ribbon and brads from Taylors kit for the top of the cupcakes and for the icing i used some liquid pearl from another one of Taylors kits!

I finished off the card with the cherry on top which is also in Taylor's kits and used a white gel pen for the highlight on the cherry!

Be sure to check out Lindsay's blog to see what the rest of the DT is up to!!!

...rock n roll is gonna set the night on fire...

Again with the card kit! I wanted to see how many cards i could make from one kit! the answer is 3!

This card was sooooooooo easy! I coloured Riley with copics and cut him out with a nestie.

I used Whisper white as my base, then a piece of soft suede and then cut the dsp from the kit and put it on.

The only thing i didn't have enough of was the ribbon, so i just cut a piece of SU white ribbon for my last card.

The sentiment is from Hugs and Wishes by SU.

I mailed these cards to the raining Riley swap i am in:)

Abby is on the mend!! Going to get my hair cut tonight!!
