Ok...LOOK at how cute these dinosaurs are.  The T-rex is a new release for November and the Palm Tree and Brontosaurus you can find in the Skdigi store.

 Challenge #8 is "ANYTHING GOES made with SKdigis as the MAIN image". You can link your projects until November 30 at 11:59PM EST.  Come play with us, there is plenty of time to link up your project!
Go HERE to check out all the other fun images that are new for the Nov release and check out the other DT projects, they are seriously CUTE!! 

I printed out all the images and paper pieced them. I also made a cloud template and inked the clouds, tore some brown paper, inked the edges and put it all together.  This would be perfect for anyone that is a dinosaur fan!!

Thank U!

This is totally a non-halloween post, but I hope everyone has a fun, spooky and safe night tonight!!

I just made this card using an image from Soft Pencil that I had colored up a few weeks ago, I had it layed out and ran home at lunch today to finish putting it together, take picture and get it posted. It's time sensitive because it is for a challenge that ends tomorrow and I know tonight I won't have time to do much of anything besides trying not to eat my weight in CANDY!! ;)

So this is for the challenge over at Paper Smooches which is to share a Thank You card. I just used a pre-made kraft card, black with white polka dot washi tape.  Cut the U out with my cricut and the Hannah Montana cart. Used prima flowers, black gems and some ribbon.  I think she turned out cute....I always have a hard time with those flourishes, and not sure quite how to place them, but it will have to work!

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Halloween!

Entering the following challenges-

+Paper Smooches-Thank you
+Addicted to Stamps and More-Bingo
+365 Cards-A Certain Sentiment (Thanks)

Smiley Pumpkin-Critter Color Challenge

Holy cow! I can't believe it's been about two weeks since I've posted anything. I've been crazy busy and have had to do some prioritizing.  I've got some assignments due in the next few days and have been working on some other things as well. Sometimes life just gets busy and we are in that busy season at my house. 

This is my last post on the Critter Sketch design team and I have had such a fun time designing for their challenges.  This challenge is based on this color inspiration picture from Love those gorgeous colors and especially the owl.  My pumpkin is an SKdigi image and is also based on the sketch from Cardabilities sketch #61. I paper pieced the pumpkin and shaded with my copics...I love paper piecing and the SKdigi images are perfect for doing this. The letters on the title are stickers and are from my stash, I can't even remember which company they are from.  Anyway, hope you like my card and will come join us at Critter Sketch for this fun color challenge!

I am entering the following challenges

+Cupcake Craft-Witch or Pumpkin

My Craft Spot-Too cute to Spook

+2 Sisters-Halloween or Fall Colors

+4 Crafty Chicks-Happy Halloween

Home Sweet Home --SKdigis Challenge #6

I made this card using the super cute Mushroom Home from SKdigis.  Our challenge was to use a shape other than a square or rectangle-I chose hexagon and bought the hexagon card cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.  Also, our challenge is ANYTHING GOES as far as the image, Sonia has several really cute freebies on her site.

 I just layered several hexagons, paper pieced the mushroom and grass, everything I used came from my scrap bin!  Love when that happens!! I also  used glossy accents on the caterpillar and stickles on the butterfly.  I hand cut the clouds and ran a copic marker around the edges and then dotted them with white enamel accents.  The Home Sweet Home sentiment is from Doodlebug rub on alphabet. I also shaded a little and used a white gel pen for line work.  I LOVE this image and had fun playing with it.  I hope you will join our challenge over at SKdigis!

I am entering the following challenges:

+Cute Card Thursday-Paper Piecing

+PaperPlay-Simply Cute

+Flutterby Wednesday-Butterfly or Fairy + Kraft
