Kaboodle Doodle #51- Bling it Up!

Are you ready for another fabulous challenge today over at Kaboodle Doodles?

Who doesn't love a little bling, glitter, & glitz?  Well pull out all those supplies for today's challenge is just that "Bling It Up!"  We are sponsored today Digi Doodles and they have provided us with some wonderful images to use on our projects.

I chose to work with Hoot Owl and I was going with a valentine theme, so I colored him with Copics in non-traditional pink color instead of browns.  I embossed my background using the Cuttlebug and used my SU'  punches for scalloped ovals, sentiment is computer generated.  The layout of card is roughly based on sketch in CTMH Wishes book.  As you can see I added my bling to my sentiment, which is also from CTMH!  I also added a little glossy accents to his eyes (which you can't really see in pic).

Hurry grab that bling and join the fun over at Kaboodle Doodles!

Charisma Cardz Challenge #2/Critter Sketch Challenge #47

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far, here in Kansas City, MO we were blasted with snow! Yes we got between 5-8 inches, so the kids have had 3 snow days but are back in today! With the frigid temperatures in the low teens or below (actually was -3 this morning), I hunkered down inside and was able to get a little crafting done this week. Oh my copics were so happy as they have been feeling neglected as I haven't been able to craft much in last couple months.

Today I would like to share a card with you that I made for the challenge over at Charisma Cardz
which is "Good Luck" that is being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.

I pulled out this super sweet image called AJ with a sign which I colored with my copics.  I added the sentiment to the sign using rub-ons from my stash. The embossing is from a Sizzix folder that I ran through my Cuttlebug, then a few pearls courtesy of CTMH to finish it off.  Everything is inked with Chestnut Roan.

Now this card is also for sketch #47 over at Critter Sketch Challenge that is also being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique this week.  I chose to turn the sketch though.

Make sure you enter your cards in both challenges as there are FREE digis up for grabs from TSB.  While you are at it, don't forget it you use a TSB image you can also enter it into monthly contest for a chance to win more FREE images. Check out all the details on monthly contest here.
