Puppy Dog Eyes Card
There is a new challenge today at Mari Digis Stamps!
As soon as I saw this little girl and her big eyes, I knew this could be my soon to be born granddaughter. She could be looking at my son with those lovely puppy eyes, looking to get her way! Guess what my granddaughter was born today!

This little girl Maria Emilia is perfect for my Design Team inspirational card this month! I colored this digi with Prismacolor Pencils. I had this wonderful bedroom furniture in my stash from before I began working on teams and I don't know where they are from. These were colored with watercolors. I cut the girl and furniture out and put soft pads on her back. I used small pieces of patterned printed paper for the walls and floor of this little girl's room. I adhered all the pieces to a blank white card and popped Maria on top.

Come and join the fun at Mari Digis Challenge!

I colored Snappy Sandy using Copic Markers and placed it in the Craft Artist 2 program. I merged the image with a black and white background of Flagler Beach, Florida, created by my husband Sandy Brooke.

I would love to see your creations in our challenge at Crafting from the Heart.

First Kiss Xmas Card

The challenges are back at Creative Lady Birds. This current challenge is Just for Fun and as usual anything goes. I chose to use Conie Fong's First Kiss and made it into a Xmas card.

I colored this lovely image using Copic Markers and cut it out leaving a narrow white edge. Using my Cuddlebug die cutting machine, I cut out a lovely white doily (Spellbinders Oval Regalia). I glued the doily to the center of a plaid base card and then adhered the colored image on top.

Come and join our challenge at Creative Lady Birds where anything goes.

Princess Card
The September challenge at Fabrika Fantasy is to add pearls/gems to you project. I chose Fairytale Princess for my design team inspirational card.

I colored this cute image using Copic Markers. I cut it out leaving a white edge. Using my Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine and Spellbinders Nestabilities die Oval Regalia, I cut a lovely doily. I adhered the image to the doily and glued them to a pin base card. I embellished the card with crystal gems and a decorative crown on the princess's head.

I look forward to seeing your projects in our challenge at Fabrika Fantasy.

Flower Pickin' Flo Card
There's a new challenge at Digistamps4joy and the new optional theme is warm colors. I chose to use Flower Pickin' Flo for my inspirational Design Team card.

I used Copic Markers to color this lovely girl and then cut her out. I used my Cuttlebug to cut an oval doily with a Spellbinders die, from yellow and white check card stock. I glued these to a white base card. Since it is September and most people don't consider it summer, I stamped "Yaye Summer," in the lower right corner of the base's still summer in Florida!

Come and join the challenge at Digistamps4joy where anything goes and the optional twist this month is warm colors.
