An Autumn Day

This is my fifth image from the 3rd series of the CDAC Progressive Challenge. This image,from Liastampz can be used in so many ways because of the pointing finger, but I chose to stick with the Fall Theme for this challenge.   I have used Distress Inks to do the coloring.  DP is from BoBunny, Forever Fall Foliage.  The Maple Leaf brads are from Forever in Time. (They don't show up too great in this photo.)  The words are from DCWV Fall Scrapbook Pad.  Happy Thanksgiving printed on computer.  The Die Cut is from Spellbinders.

Lord Duck

This awesome image is from Ninecrane Designs.  I thought the image would lend itself to a collage type of card, I have never done one before, so hope that I have enough contrast between the additions.  The background paper has been in my stash for a long time.  The center of the clock, the hand, and the top Eiffel Tower were cut from the same page and popped up.  The key and the stamp in the right lower corner were from stamps from Inkadinkadoo, I popped them up as well.  The duck , key and some of the background were colored with Ranger Distress Inks.  A very different card for me, but I kind of like it.

The card is to be entered into CDAC's Progressive Challenge Series 3.  This is one of five images for the challenge.

School Bookworm

This little card is an image denique's school bookworm that was a bonus if you had completed at least two cards for the progressive challenge this series which ends to-day. Next series is for two weeks starting to-morrow. This is my sixth card for this series, all fun cards.  I have colored the image with copics and mounted it on a scalloped edge circle which I cut with a Spellbinders Die.  The small card is from studio G, I Craft.  The circle the image is on was cut out with a Coluzzle.  The card is very plain and simple, and I will use it the next time I give someone a gift of a book.

Mom & Sons

If you have made cards with the free images you received for this series, you will get free images again for the next series.

Back to School

This little girl with the freckles is a digi image from Stamp & Doodle her name is Madison.  Another image for the CDAC Progressive Challenge.  I have colored her with copics.  The DP papers from my stash, the outline ruler had something else in the center which I covered with the brightly striped paper.  Love the colors in the stripes, they remind me of fall and the flowers that you see at that time of the year.  Printed the Back to School and added it to the bottom.  Well, I have one more image to add to this challenge, and just two days left!



This digital image is from Jens Digi Stamps part of the CDAC Progressive Challenge the second of six parts, this one ends on September 14. This is the third of  five images I have made into a card. I have colored the image with copics, the designer paper is from a small scrapbook kit.  The sentiment I made up myself to go with the image.  I have a grandson that always has a book within reach of his bed and he has done this since he was first able to read.  His mother usually has to go in and turn out the light sometimes more than once, so that he will go to sleep at night.                                                                                                                                                

Oh Christmas Tree

I have not added a card to the Midnight Madness Challenge for a week or two, but thought I would add one this week, if I'm not too late. The sketch is for MMSC 120 and I tried to follow the fancy this time. I decided to do a Christmas card as the season is fast approaching.  The stamp is from Tin Can Mail and I used Ranger fired brick ink to stamp. The papers are from my stash, The wooden swirls with holly are from Kaiser Scrapbook, and the Poinsettia & Leaves are from Hero Arts.

The Gamer

My grandson is now 13 and I have chosen a Kenny K image for him.  I colored it with copics, used a Spellbinders die to cut the shape.  The DP is from Scenic Route Paper Co.  The blue of the paper does not show up too well in this picture.  The sentiment is DP from Teresa Collins and that is the name of that series of papers - On the Edge.  I chose that as a sentiment - because he is a kid that will push everything to the limit. 
But, saying that he really is a great kid.
