TGF CHA Challenge#3

Well, I got this one done! I need a couple of baby shower cards for teachers this spring & since each of them is expecting a little boy ~ I decided to make a simple card using the Toby Cub image from The Greeting Farm & a sentiment I typed up on Word. The card is square ~ SU Ballet Blue (I think). I used Copics & Smooch. And Nestibilities...Easy Peasy... But still quite cute...

It's nice to get a little crafting again, although I probably won't have too much more time after this weekend... got to gear back up to finish the rest of the yearbook...

TGF CHA Challenge#2

I did it, I did it!!! Amazing 2 cards in less then 24 hours.... time to break out the champagne! And this sassy Charlotte looks like she is all ready for the party! I paired her up with some Basic Grey paper & a sentiment I made using MS Word when I was getting ready to print her out. Of course, I used Copics, Nestibilities, and this time I used a little Smooch ~ for those sassy lips & eyelashes ~ oh & a girls gotta have some highlites!!! And some ribbon from Target (I think). I think my daughter will want this card ~ maybe as a b-day card for their 'sassy' cousin....

The Greeting Farm CHA Challenge#1

Here is my card for the challenge... I'm running out of time & I'll be back with all the deets once I've entered my card in The Greeting Farm challenge!

YES! I made it!! So, I get to play again tomorrow... I'm so happy to be getting some creating done... it's been so long. I've been busy, busy, busy. I've been  going thru so much personal garbage ~ trying to refocus & gain some control again. I've started to organize the storage/play room, I've completed the first part of the school's yearbook (& let's just say, wow, what a huge job that is.... mainly because I have an impossible time picking pictures... not sure a Libra, accountant, perfectionist should ever attempt to make a yearbook... but I digress...) & I've been trying to reign in my eating ~ and going to the gym! At one point I was almost ready to totally get rid of all my crafting stuff... with so much else, I was just about to give up on it. But today, I came across the TGF CHA Challenge with this adorable MerIan digital image & I was inspired! I had just received some yummy PTI paper in Aqua Mist & well, there ya go... I colored Mer Ian with my Spicas & Copics, used a Nestibility Label to cut him out & a sentiment from Unity (which I stamped a long time ago & can't remember the name of the kit). I decided that since this card is going to a boy, I didn't want to have too much bling or any ribbon. Oh, & the paper is embossed using a Fiskers texture plate.

Now, I'm off to get busy with the TGF Charlotte image for tomorrow (I have a super busy day planned & won't get a better chance to complete the challenge...). It's good to be back!
