Up Up and Away

The card above is a birthday card for my son.  The large balloon is a stencil from Dreamweavers.  I used white paste in the stencil and then colored it with markers afterward.  The background is from a magazine and the sentiment stamp is from Micheals.

The Pink Butterfly

This card is to be entered into the Midnight Madness Challenge this week.  The digi butterfly is from Priscilla Styles of CDAC.  The small butterflies were created using a tonic punch.  The sparkly background paper is from DCWV and the other papers, flowers and pearls are from my stash.  It is a sketch challenge as pictured above.

Girl with Kitty

This is a 3D Die Cut picture Stanzbogen - Christine Haworth Designs.  The frame is a sticker from a large sheet. I had removed the packaging and don't know where it is from.  The little girls do like to receive these cards.  They think they are very special because of the 3-d image when finished.  Very quick and I think very pretty card.  Two of my grandaughters were here with us this weekend.  It is very quiet here when they leave.  Because it was so cold outside they spent a lot of time doing crafts and playing on our computers.  (Barbie Games)

An altered card

This card is one that I did for the Midnight Madness sketch challenge.  The card with a turtle on it was a digi from Priscilla Styles.  The papers were from K&Company, The embroidered lace from Fabricland and the rhinestone stickers from Recollections.  After I had entered it into the challenge I needed a card for one of my good friends who was turning 80 and my grandaughter wanted the turtle so she could give it to a friend.  So I removed the turtle and added a digi from Jodie at Bugaboo Stamps. Her name is Stella (the digi) and totally suits my friend.  Liked that the card was so fancy. 

I was a challenge winner!

I have recently joined CDAC a crafters digital art center.  I entered one of my cards into their Midnight Madness Challenges.  (One of many challenges on their site.)  and won their Gold Star Award for the card shown above  It was a sketch challenge which I followed quite closely.  The butterfly image is a digi from Pricilla Styles of CDAC.  I embossed the image in gold on a transparency and layered it over a cardstock image which I had colored with pencil crayons.  The background paper is from Graphic 45 and the gold paper, flowers and brads are from the dollar store.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Chapel Road Art Stamps embossed in white.
