How's everyone today? I hope you are having a good weekend:)
For my card today i thought i would make some Abby cards for my family for Christmas! :)
So i pulled out my Cowtown stamps and went to to it. I made 2 of these. Isn't it the cutest image ever??? :) I coloured Abby with copics and used a spica glitter pen on the hollies. I then cut it out with a nestie.
My papers are PTI white, real red and SU dsp. The ribbon is also from SU and i used my bow easy for the pretty bow:)
I stapled the ends, it was for the crazy challenge blog, i haven't used staples on a card in years! It looks good though because the staples are green:)
I finished off the card with some bling from my stash:) Oh and the sentiment on the inside says...
"Thats not a yule log, its my dachshund!" ha ha too cute!!
Ok i am off only 2 more days off free coffee, wish me luck!!

For my card today i used this cute Kenny K image:) I coloured her with copics, spica glitter pen and i flocked the fluffy part on her dress and boots.
My papers are PTI white, basic black and su dsp. The challenge at Kenny K is tags so i made it a tag with the SU tag punch. The ribbon is SU as well. I found these pearls in my stash.
The sentiment inside is from my newest set from PTI. Its all Christmas sentiments, i love it for the inside of the cards:)
Hope you have a great week and i hope my US friends are having a great black friday!!!

Its another Corrosive Challenge:) Today's challenge is Inspired by the 80's!! (can you tell i came up with it?? hee hee) I was asked to make a card for a 14 year old girl who loves pink, black and Avril...so here it is:)
I used my Hanna Stamp set, its cool...i have only inked it once before. I coloured her with copics and cut her out with a big nestie (cuz its a HUGE stamp!). I used a copic marker to make a border because it was too blah.
My papers are PTI white, basic black, and of course my rockstar dsp (not sure what i am going to do when this paper is gone!!).
The ribbon is from my stash, i punched out the stars with a SU punch, and the paper is this shiny colour (not sure where i got it!) and i put some bella dots in the center.
I finished off the card with some bling from my stash and of course my staple sentiments from teeny tiny wishes:)

Good morning:) I really love these Hanglar and Stanglar stamps, i won one on Ebay, but some of them go for so much money!! I also don't have any Christmas ones, so i am improvising with them!
I coloured my image with copics and cut it out with a nestie, i used a copic around the edge. I wrote in the sentiment because i didn't have a stamp small enough to fit in the heart.
My papers are PTI white, kiwi kiss and cosmo cricket dsp.
I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch with some bella dots in the middle and finished off the card with some kiwi kiss ribbon.

Its a Corrosive Challenge Day:) Today is a sketchy kinda day. Its a simple sketch so it should be easy for everyone:)
For my card i pulled out a Magnolia kit i had in my stash. I love the colours of this paper! I never make scene-type cards...so i thought i would try since there was a stamped image of the stove.
I coloured my images with copics and cut out the stove image with nesties, and just cut Tilda out. She looks like she is dreaming of cooking, i know who i am giving this card to for Xmas:)
My papers are PTI white, pretty in pink and the dsp is from the kit. The ribbon and snowflakes are also from the kit. I added some bella dots in the middle of the snowflakes to make them pop a bit. I used my spica glitter pen around the nestie...i should have used a white pen though...oh well!
