Tellen's Place week 3

Over at Tellen's Place the challenge this week was to create a card using thier sketch.
This isn't the best picture but it's the only one out of 10 that didn't come out blurry. Just have to love technology. I used twinkling H2O's on the rose but you can't see any of the sparkle, I painted 2 roses, cut out the center section and used a pop dot to make it 3-D. If you look real carefully you can see the organza bow I placed on the center strip.
The 3 strips of patterned paper is from my stash, the pink background paper is a digital paper from Funky fairies.

tellen's Place week 2

Oye! What a week. We ended up extending our vacation by 2 days because of the artic air that moved into the area. We just didn't think it was wise to travel 12 hours with a 1 year old with the wind chill in the negatives. Last Tuesday hubby came home from work with a sharp stabbing pain on the right side around his waist. I finally got him convinced he NEEDED to go to the ER and Wed at noon he had his apendix taken out. Thankfully he's not overly needy when he's sick but my craft room is upstairs and the living room where he's camped out is out of ear shot. Not much creating happened this last week. He's doing really well so I'm hoping to get a few more cards made this week. There were so many great challenges this week I'm really bummed I was only able to get one card finished.

This card is for the sketch challenge over at Tellen's Place

WIll you be my valentine

This super cute image came from Cute Daisy May
The challenge over at their blog is to create something with love in mind. This image reminds me of my niece and I thought it would be the perfect Valentine card for her.
The sketch is from Sketch and Stash I had to leave part of the sketch off until this weekend, we are visiting family for the holidays and I didn't bring a lot of supplies. I plan on adding 3 small hearts above the image to complete the card.
The color combo of red and pink came from Sweet and sassy stamps
Over at Flutter by Wednesdays since they have a new blog the challenge was to use something new. I used a new paper pack from SU! that was delivered the day before we left for my parents house.
hearts was on the agenda over at A Spoonful of Sugar

I'm blue

We are still visiting family for the holidays and I traveled with a very light amount of craft supplies so I'm very limited on the amount of challenges I can participate in.

The challenge this week over Tellen's Place at was to create a card with blue and silver. I packed one sheet of silver paper and some of my patterned paper was mostly blue so I was set for this challenge.

Paper Makeup Stamps also had a challenge to use either silver and blue or black and silver.

The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches

The Pixie Cottage challenged us to use buttons. I didn't pack buttons so I borrowed a few from my mom. She has a huge button collection so it took me well over an hour to decide on which buttons to use. So many choices.
