Saturday, October 31, 2009 future's so bright i gotta wear shades... BELLA BLOG HOP!!!

Happy Halloween everyone! Welcome to the Chichiboulie blog hop! If you haven't started at the beginning please start out at Em's blog!

I decided to use a bitty bloom for my card.

I started out by colouring her with copics and i choose very bright colours because i wanted to make a cheerful card:) I then cut her out with nesties.

All the paper is from a card kit but i think its Lime Rickey from Basic Grey. I layered my paper on SU yo yo yellow and the base is PTI white.

I finished off my card with 2 ribbons that were in the kit and a prima flower with a button in the middle!

Hope you like my card! Be sure to hop on over to Melinda next and remember there is a prize to be won so comment on everyones blog!!

...dawn of a new day...

Happy Friday! Its Hallow's Eve, does anyone have plans? I am going to see some bands play, should be fun:)

Today is Humble Pie Friday! Another one of my fave days! This weeks challenge is a wonderful sketch!

I coloured my couple with copics and then just cut them out. I also used my pink spica glitter pen on the flower, heart and headband.

My card base is PTI white with More Mustard that i ran through my swiss dots cuttlebug folder. My dsp is from the Glitter stack by DCWV.

I finished off the card with some ribbon from my stash and some primas and bling from my stash!

Be sure to play along this week! Head over to the Humble Pie Blog now!!


Thursday, October 29, 2009 of the dead, its all in their heads...

Happy Thursday:) Its one of my fave days of the week:) I really wasn't sure what i was gonna do this week, then i noticed i had this crow already printed so this will be my last Halloween card for the season (i think i said that earlier didn't i??).

I coloured the crow with copics and my black spica glitter pen around his swirls. I then cut him out with a nestie and his poor tail got chopped in the process:(

I then pulled out some Halloween paper i had in my stash. I think it came from Magnolia. I layered it on Basic Black. The sketch is from SCS.

I finished the card with some bling and lace from my stash! Be sure to head over to Lindays blog see what the rest of the DT is up too!

I am always late with sketches lately! lol I have pages printed to use and it takes me forever to use them! So this is last weeks Midnight Madness sketch.

I have had this Elzybells coloured for a while and decided to give her a shot. I coloured her with copics and cut her out with a nestie.

The DSP is called Arctic Chill by Fancy Pants Designs. I matted with Lovely Lilac. The card base is PTI white.

I finished off the card with some CTMH bling.

Another simple easy card:)

...oh foxy lady...

Hi everyone! Sorry for the late post can you believe i am no longer ahead of the game! ugh! I better hop to it since i am in Montreal all next week!

I wanted to do a quick card so i grabbed a card kit i had in my stash. I am not sure who i would give this card to, its cute and all but no real purpose.

I coloured the fox with copics and cut him out with a nestie.

The papers came in the kit, i added some hunter green for mat.

The fiber and brads also came in the kit:) See simple card today! I love Diane's sketch its great:)

...crazy nights...

Happy Monday everyone! This time next week i will be in Montreal! Its a work thing but i am hoping to relax a couple days and eat some authentic poutine! yummy!!

For my card today i used a card kit i got in a Magnolia swap i am hosting. I loved the different papers for Christmas so i went with it!

I coloured Tilda with copics and cut her out with a nestie. It was hard to find a nestie to fit her in! ugh. I then coloured the edges with a copic.

My card base is PTI white with Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette. The dsp is from the kit.

The chocolate chip ribbon came from the kit and i added the pink piourette ribbon and did Joanne's buttony bow thing, but the bow is sad looking:(

I finished off the card with the snowflakes that were in the kit with some bella dots in the middle of them.

Be sure to head over to Squigglefly today, its Challenge day!!

...girls, girls, girls....

Happy Sunday everyone!! :) Todays challenge over on the corrosive challenge blog is to make a shaped card, circle, star, heart etc...something different!

I thought this was going to be a tough challenge but i remembered i had these purse bases so it made it pretty easy:)

This card was so easy! I knew i wanted to use my card kit from Taylored Expressions because i knew the paper would match the purse.

So all i did was use a piece of paper, glued it down and cut around. I then tied ribbon from the kit and tied another bow and attached a button (thanks Joanne!!). I think my bows are getting better.

I then coloured Tilda with copics and cut her out and put her on the ribbon with some white dots from the kit.

There you have it, super easy card that looks hard! lol Check out the Challenge blog for more entries!!

...spaceman come rescue me...

I can't believe i made this many Halloween cards!! Now i have to mail them out:) I won't be mailing this one, it would be way too heavy!! lol

This is my first Easel card! I decided to go with 6X6 because i wanted some room to make a little scene.

I coloured Tilda and Edwin with copics and cut them out.

I kinda used some stuff from a few kits i had. My paper is Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper white and the dsp is from the Magnolia Spooky Collection.

The brads were from a few kits and i used all the ones i had!

The ghost and skull are from some paper i had left over from a kit, and so is the sentiment, punch and moon.

It took me a while to make this, but i had so much fun with it!! :) I think i am really done my Halloween cards now!! lol


Friday, October 23, 2009 connected...

Hi everyone! I am posting on the right day! lol

Our challenge over on the Humble Pie blog is Halloween, but not a card. So i used another SU treat box...these are so easy since there is no cutting or anything...just assemble it! When you don't have much time they are super!!

So i used the cute Witch from Humble pie, printed her out and coloured her with copics. I then cut her out.

The spider paper is from my collection and i matted it on pumpkin pie. I then used some ribbon i had lying around and sat the witch on it.

The sentiment was also on my desk, so i added it...later i realized i should have printed out the humble pie sentiment...duh! I sponged it with pumpkin pie ink

To finish off the card i used some candy corn brads from my stash!!

Be sure to head over to the Humble Pie blog...there are always great cards and prizes!!

I coloured the little witch with copics and cut her out with a nestie. The sketch is from The Sketch and Stash Challenge blog. I love thier sketches!

My card base is PTI white, with some basic black on top that i ran through my Cuttlebug folder. The dsp is from a Halloween kit i had in my stash.

I finished off the card with some ribbon from the kit and prima flowers from the kit as well. The ghost was the image in the kit, so i cut him out and put him on the flowers.

I then used some super paper i got in the kit and matted it on basic black and the base is PTI white.

I finished off the card with come prima flowers and some black bling i had in my stash.

I love the fence border, i am guessing its a martha stewart punch.
