A Great AiFactory challenge

Here is my card for AiFactory challenge this week. Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week.

I have been so busy this week. We moved a good friend of mine over to the Seattle area, made 4 pies, trying to finish the afagans that I am doing for Christmas, painting my sisters Christmas presents, and started my nativity scene. Tonight we are helping some friends decorate for their dtr's wedding that is tomorrow, then I need to come home and do the dishes that I need to have done for the reception, and finally I REALLY need to get the scrapbook done that I am doing for them. Whew, I really need to get this post done and get going.

OK now down to the challenge, the first picture is the inside of the card and definately has bling, the second picture is the front and I just LOVE them both and had a ball doing them. As usual, the images were colored with my copics, and then the bling was added with stickles. The paper is from the Martha Stewart paper that I bought and this collection of papers are just super.

Make sure you stop by the blog and see what all of the other DT members have done.

Have a good week and a great Thanksgiving.

This card has been entered in the following challenges: Christmas snow/snowflakes glitter glitter it up Let it snow

Here we are at the end of another week......

Well next week is turkey day and so we are at the end of another week, but the start of another challenge over at SMC.

This weeks challenge is turkey and punches. I love this turkey and had a ball coloring this image, then I found some of my punches from CM and saw this one that does both kinds of leaves, what better to embellish than autumn leaves. I did use some pop-dots to make some of the leaves pop out. I colored the image with my copics, did a little bit of bling and then just used the great leaves. The back ground paper is out of my "stash" and it is old enough that there is nothing on the papers to say who made them.

Hope you enjoy this challenge. Love and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!

NEW Sew Many Cards challenge

Wow here we are and it is Friday. I am going to have a LONG weekend ahead of me. I am driving a U-Haul to Tacoma this weekend to move a good friend of mine. Normally Larry would drive it, but he has EMR training tomorrow and so he cannot leave until late in the afternoon, so he will follow and then he and I will drive back on Sunday.

Anyhoooooo Our challenge this week at SMC is blue and white. I love this image and thought that he would be soooooo cute in blue, and I was right he turned out great. This image, as well as all of Angela's other great images are for sale in the store right now.......and if you hurry, there is a discount for the Christmas images if you use the discount "november2010." I colored the image with my copics and just used some of my stash of paper.

Be sure to come back next week as we are having a BLOG HOP and there are GREAT prizes to be had.

Have a great weekend, and I am sure I will be posting at least 1 more thing before I leave.

I have used Morty and the tree in the following challenges:

Stamp n Doodle WHITE challenge

Here is the card I did for the Stamp n Doodle "white" challenge. I know, this is far from white, you guys otta know me by now and I am now a "white" person. It also needed to have glitter (that I am good at) and lace, so this is the best I can do. lol

I entered this card in the following challenges:

AiFactory Day and a new challenge for 11-11-10

Here it is another week is almost gone, and we only have 2 weeks until Thanksgiving. Is it just me or is anyone else feeling like life is just passing them by?

Well I just love this image from AiFactory (and it is available in the store). Those birds and the tree limb and swirls are just wonderful. I colored the image with my copics (I know, what a shock) and it really needed some bling so I highlighted it with some stickles and the saying I got from TLC and I just thought it fit so well.

Hope you like it and come back soon for some more cards.

Isn't he just adorable? I sure hope that you enjoy him. He is part of my Christmas cards that are going to be sent out in the next few weeks.

He is also entered in the following challenges: blue, pink, green winter anything goes anything goes Christmas

I am now on the new DT for Sew Many Cards

I am so excited to be on this DT. Angela has some of the cutest images. Well this is the first week and ding dong me didn't realize it until this morning when I got online. So I whipped up this card and isn't he just adorable. Just wait until you see what other we have in store for you this month.

So I colored this adorable tiger with my copics, of course, and then I decided to do something a little new to me and made a gate fold card. This great paper is from BoBunny, and yes I splurged and bought a couple of pieces of new paper.....I know, shame on me, but it has been a really long time tince I bought any paper and I just loved these colors. Now the orange/yellow paper that he is on is from my stash and so is that great flower.

Hope you like it and be sure to check back on Friday fro another new image and stop by the Sew Many Cards store and get 35% off all christmas images.....what a buy.

Now I have entered this card in the following challenges: fall anything goes ( and BTW Bugaboo is have a design team call.....big shout out to Jodie) sketch DT inspiration (Dee was mine and that was for the colors and trying a new card fold and seeing how I ALWAYS use the traditional, I did try something different and I like it) create a square card anything goes
