Mo's Challenge #123

Hello and thanks for stopping by.  I have a card today for Mo's challenge which is "Lace".  I used Winter Fairy Talva who is so cute.  I enjoyed coloring her in, especially her leg warmers.  My daughter liked them so much she asked me for a matching pair.  :)
I colored her in with my Prismacolor pencils.  I used my swirly stamp from Inkadinkadoo to fill in the background.  I really like how that looks.  I forgot to take a better picture, but the spots on her skirt are covered with pink seed beads.  I poked a hole in the paper at each spot and sewed the beads on.  I really like how it turned out and I may have to do that again.
I decided to put my image inside my card and cut holes in all the layers so you could see her while the card was closed.   The flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I found this sweet narrow lace in my stash and put it between the layers in the opening.  My circles were off slightly so the lace helps to conceal it  :)
I like how you get a little peek at her sweetness while the card is closed.
 (For some reason Blogger was blocking this picture and when I clicked to allow it it became distorted.  So sorry for that.)  Anyway, this is the inside.  The image is matted several times and put on a small card.
This is the inside of the little card.  I used the swirly stamp again in here.
I am entering my card on the following challenges:
Delightful Challenges - Use Patterned Paper
Cute Card Thursday - Winged Things

I guess that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs

Saturated Canary Challenge #10

Hello again.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I have a card for the challenge over at Saturated Canary this week.  The challenge this time is Red, Pink & White.  I used this adorable image called Nevaeh.  I really love how she turned out.  She is so sweet.
I used my Prismacolor pencils to color her.  I also used a stamp from Inkadinkadoo to fill in the background edges. 
The white lace is from my stash.  This piece was all I had left and it fits perfect.  It was meant to be  :)  The brown trim is from Hobby Lobby.  I think I need to go back and get the rest of the colors  :)  lol  Having a stash is great when you are creating.  With a stash you can pick from everything to make the best decision for your project.
The inside was alot of fun to put together.  The background papers are from Basic Grey.  They are called praline and raspberry cream (good thing I'm not hungry right now).
The top has two ribbons layered together.    The crocheted doily is from my stash as is the button.  The seam binding is from Wild Orchid.
I did something a little different on the bottom panel.  I used a MS PATP to make a panel.  Then I added a small card on top of that.
I was thinking about this idea as I woke up this morning.  Does that mean my head is getting better from being whacked so hard?  I hope so.  Anyway, I like how this turned out and I may have to use it again.
The great sentiment panel is from Rubber Punkin.  She has great stuff.  Go check her out.  The free printable can be found here.  I plan to use most of them on Valentines for all my children.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Saturated Canary - Red, Pink & White
Truly Scrumptious - Love & Hearts
Top Tip Tuesday - Valentine's
The Paper Shelter - Be My Valentine
Creative Inspirations - Lots of Love
The Shabby Tea Room - Candy Hearts

That's about it.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Mo's Challenge #120

Hello friends.  Thanks for stopping by.  I have a card using another great image from Mo's.  This time I'm using Winter Fairy Halla who is just the sweetest thing. 
I colored him with my Prismacolors and added some clear Stickles to the frost he is blowing.  And there's something on his wings, but since I colored him a couple weeks ago and didn't get the card together for the challenge I don't remember what I put on sorry.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I added gold microbeads from MS to the upper left and lower right corners.  They look great, but I think I need a better adhesive next time.  At least they seem to be done falling off.
My papers are from MME.  The white piece is embossed with my Cuttlebug embossing folder, Snowflakes.  I've used it alot and still love it.
The tulle and beads are from my stash.  The blue seam binding is from Wild Orchid.
The writing panel is stamped with an old snowflake stamp from my stash.  It's probably been around for 20 years.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Mo's Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Buttons and Bows

That's about it.  Thanks so much for taking a peek today.
