Gina's Challenge Card

This card was made for a challenge I am participating in over at Scrapbook.com within a forum I belong to, the Scrappin derelicts!!..The challenge was to use 2 diff printed papers and buttons on a card as well as a stamped image sent to us by Gina.  Here is my take on the challeng.
Here is the Copics that I used to color my image.  The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp.  I also used a CTMH sentiment and flowers for the inside of my card.

Christmas in Pink

I love this Magnolia in Pink. I have done a few pink Christmas Cards this year and this is my favorite so far.  Magnolia has overdone themselves this year with their Christmas stamps.  I colored with my copic markers and used my cuttlebug for embosssing the papers.

Masking Magnolia Card

I decided to try masking again, seriously haven't done that in so long. I really like how it turned out!  I stamped the Magnolia packages then masked them and stamped the Magnolia Tree. I colored them with my copics.   I then stamped and colored Tilda with my copics and cut her out and pop dotted her onto the packages.   The paper on the front is a sparkly red, hard to tell on the computer.  Then I added some buttons for the tree ornaments.  If you happen on to my blog, thanks for looking.

All the things I love Blog candy

I finally received my Magnolia Images that I pre-ordered at the beginning of November.  I love these images. The presents are also Magnolia.  These papers are from my Christmas paper stash.  I colored with my copics.  I also used my cuttlebug on each card and my nesties.  How did I make cards before I had these things??!!

The challenge this week was to use Copics # RV23, YR04, and YG06. I had them all! I used a CC Designs Coffee Kiki LaRue image that I absolutely love!!! How fun is she in her bathrobe and slippers with her cup of coffee. Reminds me of me!!!
I also did another card with this image in pinks and blues. The blue ribbon has the texture of a good bathrobe!!!

Coffee card for friends

This past week my life has been about budgets at work, I thought I would make a card for some of my friends that are also enjoying the process!!! LOL!!
This card uses a Hannah Stamp and the inside is a stamp by Stampendous. The copics I used are added to the pic of the inside of the card.

Merry Christmoose

I got this font from a free font site and have lost it in cyberspace!!! I bookmarked it to my computer, but must have lost it. I enjoyed coloring this image with my copics. The background paper is basic grey.

Sand Pail mini album

Last June our family spent a week at the Oregon Coast. It was a great time with all the kids. Peighton turned 2 at the beach. It was so fun to spend time with her and Kiah. But Kiah was only abt 6 weeks old at the time. This is a little album I made for my hubby with some pics I took. Was precious to see them have so much time exploring. Reminded me of days when our kids were little.
