Retrosketches #43

I love this week's sketch on the Retrosketches Challenge Blog. I would have loved to put an adorable little bow on this card, but being at my parents' house for the holidays and only having limited supplies, I had to improvise a bit. Thanks for stopping by!

Design Team Call Entry for Not2Shabby

The following card is my entry into the Not2Shabby Design Team call. This card was made using the Latte Kiki La Rue that I purchased from the Not2Shabby Zibbet shop. I had a wonderful time coloring her and using bits and pieces from my large box of scraps that I hauled to my parents's house over the Christmas holiday.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Please see below for the video I created.

Coffee Kiki - Cute Card Thursday Challenge

I love my new Coffee Kiki Stamp from C.C. Designs. The following card was created for the following Challenge:

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 248 - Eat, Drink & Be Merry

I used patterned paper scraps from my overwhelming scrap drawer that I transported in a box to my parents' home for the holidays. My cuttlebug should arrive along with my husband later in the day...I am hoping to work through the box more quickly after that.

Thanks for stopping by!

Card Using Scraps - Gorjuss Girl Stamp

I have been enjoying time with my family and making cards while we have been relaxing in the evenings and enjoying a few movies together. I'm loving the time to practice coloring with my copics. I have used used scraps of patterned paper but it hardly seems like I've made a dent in the large box I brought with to my parents' house. It's amazing how that happens, isn't it?

Thank you for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I was inspired by this week's sketch challenge PPA149 over at the Pals Paper Arts Blog. I am at my parents' house for the holidays and brought limited supplies, but I am happy with how the card turned out. The stamp is from MFT and I used paper scraps from the Recollections Festivus 12x12 paper stack. The wavy black circle behind the stamped image was cut free hand. I hope you like it.
