New Release +Winter Wonderland Challenge at Jellypark

Don't you think penguins are adorable? This little guy is no exception and is one of the "New Releases" this week at Jellypark. I got some new papers in the mail and couldn't wait to use on my project, these are from MME 6 x6 stack called "Blink of an Eye" which I picked up at 2 Peas in a Bucket.  I started with a sketch from My Time Made Easy and inked all my papers with CTMH Desert Sand pad. I colored my lil' guy with my Copics and then paper pieced his hat, adding brads to the little pom-poms. I outlined everything using my black spica pen and finished it off with a couple buttons with ribbon.
Now not only is it "New Release Day" but it's challenge day to at JellyPark, this week's challenge is called "Winter Wonderland"- so show us those projects featuring snow/snowflakes!  They are actually predicting a little dusting her in KCMO, which the kiddos will love as we haven't had hardly any snow this year!

Don't forget that Jellypark Juniors is now open for all those little crafters, we would love to see their projects and leave some love for our future stars!

Jellypark: Something In My Pocket

It's finally Friday and I am ready for a great day full of scrappin' and girl time with my friends tomorrow!  We have a packed weekend again with a basketball game for Lucas and my oldest Micah is traveling to another math team competition and had to catch bus at 4:30 am.  Crossing my fingers for him to have a great competition, last one he was the top Sophomore out of entire competition (as well as top participant from his school) and brought home 4 medals+ plaque+ lettered! This momma is so proud!!!

Well enough of that how about ending the week with a challenge?  Today is challenge day at Jellypark and our theme is "something in my pocket" and it's new release day as well!  I never make many masculine projects, so I wanted to make this bookmark card for my stash.  The image I used is called "space rocket" and is colored with copics.  I  found this fun piece of patterned paper and inked the edges with CTMH Cocoa ink.  I decided to create a moon so I cut a circle on my Cricut and then embossed with tiny bubbles, flipped in over and inked. The rocket image is mounted on cardstock and I cut a slit in front of my card to secure the bookmark.  Inside I stamped "I think the world of you" which is from Stampendous Changito in space stamp set.
Come on over and check out what new images Claire has created HERE and see what 
the rest of team has done this week HERE.

Wedded Bliss Club

Jellypark is sponsoring the challenge this week at My Mum's Craft Shop, the theme is "NEW." Well what couldn't be more new than a marriage, so I created this card using "cute wedding couple bride & groom" from the Jellypark store. I had so much fun creating this card, I have used some new Nesties to frame the image.  The roses were created using my Die-Namics Mini Rose die, then I added a little glue to then and dipped in some glitter. I added some hearts on background using one on my embossing folders and cut the heart for sentiment on my Cricut.  The sentiment is from Congrats set from Stampin' Up.

Don't forget to join the "old year/new year challenge going on right now at Jellypark Challenges for a chance to win more FREE images.  You can see all the details HERE!

The Crazy Challenge # 101-Pearls and/or Lace

This week at The Crazy Challenge it's all about "pearls and/or lace" and who does that better than our sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs. I have created a wedding card for the challenge using this embossing folder that has been in my stash FOREVER and never has been used. I added a little CTMH grey flannel ink to folder prior to running through my Cuttlebug to make words stand out a little better. The image is called 
"Bella Bride" and she's all ready to walk down that aisle to say her "I Do." I have added some flowers to her dress by using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge cut at 1/2" and then added tiny pearls to centers. I then popped the image up a bit and added a little piece of ribbon. (The picture does not do this card justice, it's much prettier in person.)

Come join us this week and don't forget about our DT call going on, you can see all the deets HERE.

I did a little shopping recently thanks to a gift certificate I received (thanks Tracey) and normally I go for Copics, but this time I went for some new 6 x 6 paper packs.  Guess what? My package of goodies arrived from 2 Peas in a Bucket just in time for some weekend crafting. This was my 1st order from them, but certainly won't be last- shipping was super fast!

These gorgeous papers are from My Mind's Eye Love Me 6 x 6 stack, it comes with 24 sheets of double-sided papers.  This was perfect for the challenge this week at Lollipop Crafts, which is

holiday and we are feeling refreshed and ready to bring you some wonderful inspiration!

Craft Your Passion #91

Do you ever see an image and it just speaks to you?  That's exactly what happened when I saw this 
"polar bear" image from Delicious Doodles of a mother and her baby cub all snuggled up. I decided that I loved the look of the pencil drawing so all I did was add a little pink to that sweet baby's cheek. I made this card for the challenge this week at Craft Your Passion, the theme is "anything goes+ distressing." I added my distressing by adding a little CTMH Cocoa ink to edges of my image, papers, and doily.  The sentiment is computer generated and then punched using my Stampin' Up punches.  Make sure to come join us this week, as we have 3 wonderful sponsors not to mention a DT Call.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Anything Goes-blue+1 other color
Bearly Mine- anything goes
Crazy Amigo Challenge- winter
Digital Tuesday- winter wonderland

Happy New Year + Thank You Card

Hope everyone's 2012 is off to a great start already, our starting off a little bumpy with a sick kiddo. My lil' Lucas started puking a little after midnight and continued until almost 7 am on Sunday.  Finally got him down to sleep and he was out until about 1:30 pm, one more round and then things finally settled down, he went to bed early on Sunday and slept until after 10 am on Monday.  Of course he work up and was raring to go, so we headed out to watch to movies to see "Chipwrecked" before having to head back to school today. So finally I think things are settled down, what a way to start the New Year right?

Well this allowed me lots of time to color and I have a stack of images ready to assemble, so be ready for some new projects soon!  I invite you all to come join us this week at Sunday Sketch & Stamp, we have a wonderful sketch from our fearless leader Maggie.  I decided to work with this super cute lil' man from Jellypark called "boy with sign." I added the sentiment from a Stampin" Up set, I love the versatility of this lil' guy!  Make sure to check out Jellypark's new challenge this week HERE too!
