Paper Piecing thank you card

This week I made a thank you card for Michael's aunt Catty. Aunt Catty is very sweet and she is a collector of elephants, so when I saw Artish's Ian Laurent Digi, I knew that the image was perfect for Aunt Catty's card. I made this card with this week's Paper Pretties Challenge in mind. This week's challenge was paper piecing, therefore, I paper pieced the balloon and colored the rest with copic markers and added a little glitter. It's a really simple card, here it is:

For this card I used Paper Pretties Ian Laurent digi, SU cardstock and DP, Martha Stewart daisy punch and the sentiment is from the Paper Pretties set Everyday Lily. I also used rhinestones and glitter.

Thanks for dropping by, have a great weekend.

Unique Fold/Non-Traditional Fold Challenge Card

I completed this card yesterday and although I can't find my memory card for my camera, my camera allows 3 shots to it's internal memory. So I was able to get a few shots of the card. This week's Paper Pretties challenge was to make a card with a a unique or non-traditional fold. So I found this card design online. It is different and I had fun figuring out how to fold it and design it.
Here is my card:I used Paper Pretties Love Fairy Anna image along with sentiment and flourish . The circle was faux fun circles from Waltzing Mouse stamp. I used DP, SU cardstock and punch, copics, pastry doily sponged with SU Ruby Red ink, glue pen, shear ribbon and glitter.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week.

A Card!!! PWC135

Today schools were closed and it snowed about 6 inches here, so I called into work and told them I was taking a personal day. The roads were really bad and with an hour commute, driving was not what I wanted to do today. So I saved myself some major stress and time and just stayed home.

So what do you do on a free snow day, you play in the snow, color with the kids, cook and find time to craft. Today I was able to get some time to complete this weeks Paper Prettie Challenge. This weeks challenge was a sketch challenge. You can find the sketch here and here is my card:

Isn't she adorable? For this card I used SU cardstock and DP. I used Paper Prettie's Garden Fairy Katie for the main image. For the sentiment I used two Paper Pretties stamp sets. For the oval I used elegant sentiments and for the words I used the sentiment for Love Fairy Anna which I colored one word at a time to get them separated. I really like how that came out. I also used Colorbok rhinestones, Recollections flowers and chocolate pearls. I colored Fairy Katie with Copic markers and I also used pink colored pencils. Why doesn't copic have a pretty light pink? Like SU's Pink Pirouette, I love that color.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card. I hope you all have a great weekend. Feel free to join in our the challenge, you might win yourself a free stamp.

Hugs to all!!
