Surf Boards

Hurray, the CDAC Progressive Challenges are back and running again!  This is for challenge 19, the surfboard images were created by tiffany doodles.  I tried to go for a Hawaiian look, the DP are from my stash of Scrapbook papers.  The beach is beige cs with salt and pepper added.  The sentiment is computer generated. No coloring, just paper piecing.

For Justin

This great for a guy image is from D'Arcy's Diaries.  It is so hard to find guy images, but I shopped at D'Arcy's and got a couple, along with some girls of course.  This card is for my grandson Justin who is just turning 17.  The guy in the card looks like he has a lot on his mind, as Justin has had these last few weeks of his summer vacation.  Justin was drafted to play hockey for the Barrie Colts, an Ontario Hockey League Team.  This will mean that he will have to be billeted with a family in Barrie so that he can play hockey and go to school there to get his grade 12.  This is about 100k from where he lives now.
The image is colored with copics.  DP is from Teresa Collins, the tag from Me & my Big ideas.  The sentiment and the stickers Slammer and On The Ice  are from my stash.  I had fun making this card, hope you enjoy it.
I am entering this card into:  Darcy's Diaries Digi Challenge #11  -   Anything Goes

All White

This beautiful image is from Sassy Studio and I made this card for the DTBST #136 White Challenge, the image can be colored. Three more days left to enter the challenge.
I have colored the image with copics.  Covered the dress and shoes with White Crystal glitter they are both paper pieced.  I punched out the flowers with various punches and added white pearls to the centers.  The leaves are a die from Marianne Design, I have added the White Crystal glitter to them as well.  The backgrounds are from two folders, the swiss dots from Provo Craft and the leaves from Crafts-Too.  A clear rhinestone for her earing and ring.  A ribbon across the center and a sentiment from my stash.
We finally got some rain to-day, so maybe I can get some work done in my garden tomorrow as it is a holiday here. Can't go shopping, and Physio is closed.

Charleston Carrie

This sweet little image is from Digi Stamps for Joy, by Jen Lee I am entering it into their challenge #47.  The challenge is to create a card with Polka Dots and Stripes using a ds4j image. There are a couple of days left to enter the challenge.  The image is called Charleston Carrie, I have colored her with copics and paper pieced her dress and headband.  The DP is from GCD Studios -Animal Crackers.  The white frame is made with a die from Nellies frames.  Used a Martha Stewart circle cutter for the beige circle.  The flowers are from Forever in Time and the pearls and flower on her headband are from Craft / Dollarama.

Things are looking up here, my husband is slowly recovering from his last fall, another week of physio 3 times for him, and then I hope we can cut it back to twice a week.  With other appointments we have, the week soon disapears.

Summer & The Tops Down

Another wonderful image from Bugaboo, this time a card for my son, who does drive a convertible in the summer months.  I have colored the image with copics, added some black Peel Offs to frame the image.  The DP is from My Minds Eye and the sentiment was created on the computer.  A few jewels to add some bling.

Keys to the Car

This image is from Bugaboo, so nice to find one that I can use for an older teenager.  I have colored the image with copics, added a Google Map for the background.  The corners are from Time for Crafts and the DP is from my stash.  This card is for one of my grandsons who shares a car with his brother who is a couple of years older.  They do have fun when it comes to who is going to fill the car with gas.
