"Think Spring" New Digi Darla Challenge

Good Monday Morning all you wonderful crafters!

 I do hope you had a chance to join us at DigiDarla's Challenge blog over the last couple weeks! We had a great image to give away for anyone who entered the "Anything But Snow" challenge. This week starts a new challenge and the Theme is "Think Spring"  I would LOVE to see what you come up with! there are some awesome creations by the Design Team, be sure to check all them out!
As for my inspiration for you i have 2 cards, one is with our sponsors (Robyn's Fetish) image and the other is a very cute Digi Darla image, so without further ado here are my cards:
Robyn's Fetish image
This card I used Robyn's Fetish "Ms Cutie Bear" image, I colored her with prisma color pencils and blended with OMS. The ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the DP is from my stash. The border at the bottom was done with my fiskars template and then I too my Big Bite and punched the mini holes to make it look like a punched border, then added a strip of the brown circle DP to the inside so when card closed yo can see the paper that matches the front circles! The sentiment is a wooden mount stamp from my collection. Now on to my next card.......

Isn't this just adorable!!!! I love this image by Digi Darla I colored him with my Prisma Color pencils and blended with OMS. The yellow card stock I mounted him to was run though my cuddlebug. The sentiment is a new wood mount stamp I got yesterday at Michael's. The flower is prima flower. The ribbon's at the bottom are from Joanna Sheen, I took 2 of them 1 pink and 1 purple and did a twist to get the effect I wanted...then the bling are from Martha Stewart, I love them they remind me of candy dots! So there you have it! I hope you have found some inspiration from me today, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with on this challenge!
Think Spring and have a GREAT week!
God Bless,

Special St Patty's Day Wish

Today, woke up to snow!! First snow here for the 2011/2012 Winter Season! Well its 4:30pm and the white stuff has covered the ground and is still coming down! Looks like they finally got this forecast right! Big Snow! Anyway I was searching the net for some inspiration and came across this really cool Sketch site called Sketch Saturday and was like wow....So I browsed the DT Cards and said I can do this one and what a DT they have there "Very Talented"! So this is my take on their Sketch this week and I will surely be back for more!
This card is done with "all" scraps that I had! Love that! I do not know where the image came from but love it, colored with my prisma colored pencils. The sentiment is from a stamp by Studio G.
thanks for taking a look and leaving some love along the way!
God Bless

Liesbter Blog Award

Wow Sandra (Rose Petal Creations) I was very surprised by your awarding me the Liebster Blog Award, I am very honored and accept this with gratitude!

The LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD is used to show appreciation of smaller blogs (under 200 followers) and to help spread readership and joy.
As part of the tradition the award is to be passed along to five other blogs that have motivated and inspired me.
It comes from the German meaning Dearest or Beloved, but can also mean Favourite.

1. Link back to the persons blog who gave it to you, and thank them.
2. Post on your blog.

I do hope that you will all accept this award, and pass it on too.
Many thanks once again Sandra for nominating me.

Cards For Emily

I seen this blog post about a little girl name Emily, I read her story and was touched, I knew I had to send her some love....She may not know me but she will know that I am praying and thinking of her during this difficult challenge in her young life. I read that she likes kittys and purple and well this is my card for her and I hope she likes it and all the love that went into it!

I do not know where I got this cute kitten image, but I love it...I used a ColorCore A2 Card and embossed "With Love" on the bottom with a Cuttlebug border folder. used some scraps I had from a previous card fo a little background, the image was colored with Prisma color pencils, and then cut and embossed on my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and then I chalked in purple. Added a flower that I colored with glimmer mist and added a Gem and added Gems to the bottom! Inside is a sentiment from DigiDarla that says" Sending warm thoughts and wishes your way"

Going to enter this card in the following challenges:

      For my creation today, I used Digi Darla's Blessings Of Heaven 1 We have a close friend of the family that is expecting a girl and I made this card for her and her husband!
I used Digi Darla's Blessings Of Heaven 1, colored it with my prima color pencils and cut out and embossed with my spellbinders and added a layer done the same way. The card is A2 and ColorCore so I embossed it with using Cuttlebug and a Baby Frame embossing folder by Darcie. I used a prima flower and added a gem to the center. The sentiment I made with Word and then added a few more gems for some bling!

And for a little more inspiration....I created a scrapbook layout to share.

  Here I used Digi Darla's "Baby Boy Collage" image. This is my Grandson that was born March 18th 2011 we have all taken LOTs of pics of him but I am just now getting to start his Scrapbook. The center pic is his first night at home, and the pic in the upper left is his first night at our home, he spends every Friday night and Saturday with us to help out with babysitting while his mommy n daddy are working.

Just A Note....CDAC-PC11

Wow! time for CDAC Progressive Challenge #11 where did the time go!! I love all the images that were shared for this Challenge! What great artist! I chose this one for my first card by Whimsy and Stars Studio. (will be makin more soon)
I thought about how this image could be used and said well I could use it as a Thinking of you or even "We've Moved" card, but I was looking at my stamps and seen this "Just a Note" sentiment and it HIT me!! This is a "Just a Note card!!! SOOOO I colored it with prisma color pencils and then cut it out with my fiskar circle cutter, I chalked the image in yellow chalk, then took a scrap peice of paper and ran it through my Spellbinders with the Scalloped die, behind that is a 1 1/2 inch yellow ribbon, and then I put some bling on and a prima flower! Then stamped the sentiment!

Entering this card in the following challenges as well as the CDAC-PC11
