Hello everyone ... here's to another challenge at Creative Knockouts 

The theme is Anything Goes ... so let's go and get crafty.

The sponsor for this challenge is StarStampz and the image that I have used on this challenge is
I used colored pencils and gel pens on the image.  The picture doesn't give you the sparkle of her bodice and headband and the tops of the castle.  It was cut with a oval stitched die by My Favorite Things.  The dotted paper is by DCWV and was cut with a fancy edge die by Penny Black.

The sentiment is by Happy Little Stampers stamped with Walnut Stain distressed ink and then I added paper flowers and crystal drops.

I hope you have fun playing along.

Here's to the final post until 2019.  

Happy Crafting
See you in 2019!

Fa La La La La

Welcome friends to the December challenge at
Scrap from your Heart.
This month the challenge is coloring.

I am using a digi stamp from Bugaboo that I used both pencils and markers.

I framed the image with green cs and then mounted it on a green card base with an added sheet of designer paper from Recollections.

I added a small bow tied from bakers twine into the corner to finish it off.

I hope you have fun playing along with us on this challenge.
Can't wait to see all your crafting fun.

Welcome to the challenge at
Try Stamping or not on Tuesday
We have a sketch challenge this round as well as  a theme of 'CELEBRATE'.
I will have the sketch below.
For my card, I started with a Darice embossing folder with the word celebrate and some dark purple cs.  Next, I have some printed paper from Recollections.
The sentiment is on a lavender cs with a stamp also by Recollections using gold embossing powder.
All of this mounted onto a lighter shade of lavender cs top fold base with the corners rounder with a chopper.

For my card, I am using Gingerina and I used colored pencils on the image with a touch of marker on the hearts to bring them out a bit.   Trimmed down and rounded the corners and mounted on a red cs frame.  I added red faux stitching and a couple of small gold mylar hearts. 
The paper front is from a Recollections holiday pad and I wrapped red and white bakers twin along the left edge and rounded the corners.  The sentiment was edged in vintage photo distress ink and added with dimensional squares to pop it up a bit.

Vintage Christmas

Hello Everyone
Welcome to another fun challenge at
the theme this month 
Shabby Chic/Vintage

For my card, I started with the image where I layered the picture and the text.  I colored it with markers.  I cut the frame in red cs and then in white cs where I used a Martha Steward dotted scallop edge punch.  The paper is from Recollections that I bought last year post holiday on an amazing sale and the pad has just been waiting patiently to be pulled from the shelf.  I wrapped red dotted ribbon around the front panel and then mounted everything onto a green top fold cs base.  I dropped some assorted sized red sequins in the corners and then dropped some silver Stickles into the centers.
I hope you have fun playing with us this month.

Hello Everyone
A new month and a new challenge here at
Our sponsor this month is one of my favorites

For my card, I am using Santa Baby Unicorn and I used both colored pencils and markers on the image.  I masked off the bottom and blended cracked pistachio, wilted lavender and spun sugar distress inks.  I mounted that onto a piece of pink and white striped paper from DCWV that was in my scrap box.  I then put that onto a piece of pink and pink dotted glitter paper that was in my scrap as well.  I have no idea what pad that is from it's been in there so long. 
All of this was added onto a hot pink side fold cs base. 
I added white puff onto the hat and ball.
