Show and Tell Challenge

May black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, May luck be yours on Halloween!!
Happy Halloween Everyone!!  Thank you so much to all of you who stopped by yesterday
to wish me luck and to become a follower!! A special thank you to my sweet friend Jacque!!

This is a card that I made for the All That Scrap's Show and Tell C.C. Designs Challenge.
The Challenge requires the use of Black, Burnt Orange and Tan. I found a leaf shape that I liked and hand cut the leaf out of Digi DP's from the Shabby Princess Plentiful Collection to form an easel card. The cute pilgrim couple is C.C. Designs Digi Sugarplums Thanksgiving.  I found the image of the turkey off the Internet. I thought that it matched the pilgrims pretty well. I printed all the images on Cryogen White multiple times, so that I could give each image some dimension. I colored the images using Copics and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I glued all the image pieces together using Sakura Quickie Glue Pinpoint Roller. This is my favorite glue to paper piece images. The pilgrims were popped up using dimensional tape. The Happy Turkey Day saying is from Peddler's Pack Stampworks. I can't believe this, but on the end of the stamp it says that it is from 1994. LOL!! The border punch is Fiskars Falling For You.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that you will come back again soon!!
Big Halloween Hugs to All Of You!!

Celebrating My First Posting With A Little Pink

I finally decided to take the leap and start my own blog after much encouragement from so many wonderful friends that I have met in the blogging and card making worlds.
A big thank you to all of you!!

For my very first posting, I would love to share with you a card that some of you may have seen on the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group or at Splitcoaststampers. I have made this special card for my very sweet and talented friend, Jacque, who is a Breast Cancer Survivor!! Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to make Jacque a card to celebrate her strength, courage and grace with a little pink!!

For my card I have used Digi DP's from MyGrafico - Shery K's Love Cherries Collection.
I have printed the DP's on Georgia - Pacific White Card Stock 110 lb. weight.
The Tilda with Peony from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Tilda's dress was paper pieced using Digi DP from MyGrafico Shery K's Daisies Collection sized to a 2.5" square. Before gluing all the pieces together, I went around all the edges with black colored pencil. I feel that it gives the image a more finished look and also it hides any areas that might not have been cut perfectly. The Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon was cut using a Sizzix Die from the Scrap Pink Kit #655411. It was popped up along with Tilda using dimensional tape. The heart lace is from JoAnns. The small roses are from Recollections and the sweet rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Sending big hugs to all of you for stopping by! I hope that you come back to visit again soon!! Have a wonderful week!!
