Christmas Blue Bird

 Made my first Christmas Card!  I can't believe it's already that time.  I used a new stamp from Stampendous called Chickadee. The Alphabet Challenge - Letter B for Birds, and the little chickadee was the perfect stamp.  Such a simple stamp but soooo many possibilities.  Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #23 had a great sketch this week.  I put a different spin on it and made it a gate card.  Here is the sketch.
I colored the little bird with Prisma, out lined the stamp with glitter and used a lot of bling as the berries.  I also loved the paper that has all the holly in it so I decided to carry it over to the sentiment.  Just a little more.. what the heck.  Paper Romance Challenge #30 said to use everything but the kitchen sink and A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #128 said Relish to Embellish.   I pretty much did,  I dug out some old stuff and used some new stuff.  As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use my new Nesties I just bought.  I've been wanting this design - Lables, for a while.  They can be used for so many different things.  Plus it worked perfect for Raise The Bar Challenge #43 - Let's see those curves.   Charisma Cardz Challenge #44 wanted to see our Christmas projects and Little Red Wagon Challenge #53 wanted us to use Red. 

On the inside of the card I had some card stock that had the holly decorations in the corners and it was able to be cut to the perfect size without loosing the holly.  To me it was the perfect finishing touch.  Another great part of this card is the holly in the corner (part of the sentiment) it hold the card closed.  Just slip that side under the leaf.   Haha.

A Thank You note card

 I made this simple little note card for a guy friend that is going through a bunch of crappy stuff.  It's blank inside so I can let him know everything will be ok.  The stamp is new.. first time I used it.  It's a Hero Arts stamp and I've been wanting a bicycle stamp for some time.  I've seen so many great cards made with them.  The basket and flowers are part of the stamp but I cut it off and popped it up.  The little bird was just a tiny sticker I had lying in front of me when I was making this card.  It worked so well. 
I decided to decorate the inside.  Just a little trim,  without it looked very undone.

Happy Fall

 I hope everyone is having a great week.  It is suppose to be Fall here but it is still in the 80's.  That's what you get when you live in AZ. 

I want to show off a card I made for a few challenges.  I bought this stamp a while ago and just now am getting to use it.  I love how he/she (?) is just Chilling out on it's pillow. 
The stamp is a Whipper Snapper Design.  I just love their stamps!  It's name is "Cha-Cha" so perfect.

I used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #29 - I turned it side ways. 
The Color Dare Challenge #83 had a great color challenge this week. 
                             GREEN  -  PLUM - VANILLA  - WHITE
The Polly Craft Challenge #68  card should show something "Chillin"
Stamp Something Challenge wanted us to stamp something with some pink.  Every little poodle should be on a plush pink pillow.
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #66 & Wee Memories Challenge #29 both were challenged us to stamp or make anything..

I just want any one who may stop by to know all these are great challenge blogs and should all be checked out.  Try it.. have some great fun!
