Artist With The Blues


Well, well, here I am again - This time, to tell you about a new challenge, starting today, at Open Minded Crafting. How about a challenge about work? Your job, hubby's job, a friend's job - Or anyone else.  We want to see your projects featuring someone at work, or using an office related product on your project - Either will work for this fun challenge.

As always, this is a biweekly challenge, so you have an entire two weeks to create and link up with us, for your chance to win. We always have lots of great prizes you can win and this time is no exception! Join us, this time, for your chance to win a prize from one of these amazingly generous sponsors:




















Now that the details of the challenge are out of the way, let me tell you about my card.

My project uses the (new to me)  image, Crafty Honey Painter, from Scrapper's Delights. I went with a monochromatic color scheme this time, and used lots of spots and dots.  This was such a fun project to do, but I definitely felt a bit dotty after completing it! LOL! I kept it simple, with no embellishments, for that reason. All papers used are from my stash.

This card reminds me so much of my school days, because I always looked forward to going back to school, for the art classes! I guess I always loved to be creative and play with paper! LOL

Summer Treats Make Sticky WIngs



Well, I'm baaaaack, with news of our new challenge, at Lacy Sunshine! Can you believe summer is almost over?! Wow! Time sure has flown by, hasn't it?! Anyway, our challenge theme, this fortnight, is.... Summer! A perfect theme, isn't it? Ready to show off your summer crafting mojo with us?! Come over to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog and link up your creation with us! Remember, there are Top 3 spots, a guest designer spot and a random winner to be drawn, so lots of chances for prizes to be won!

My card uses the image, Lil Scoop, from the Sticky Wings line of digis, by Lacy Sunshine, colored with Promarkers. I went with summery colors and a flower print. All papers are from my stash.  A friend talked me into buy a beginners paper quilling kit, so I tried my hand at quilling this flower and vine, for embellishing the card.  Not bad for a first attempt, right?

I went with fruit and wine, for my card. My card, today, uses the image, Wine, by Oak Pond Creations, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash. I used a glaze pen to add a glass like sheen to the wine bottle. I admit, I had a super hard time coloring this image, for some reason and am still not really happy with the results.

What do you all think?
