Cardz 4 Guyz - Man's Best Friend



This week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz was my pick.  Of course, I chose to make it an animal challenge...what else!  I used this Shitzu digi from Just Inklined.  The digital papers are from Echo Park.  I colored him with Copic markers.  I'm not real happy with my coloring.  It's not exactly what I envisioned but, I'm satisfied.  I had more problems with my markers.  I don't know what is going on with them.

QKR - Add a Button


The fun challenge this week at QKR is "Add a Button."  I used this cute bunny, available here.  The digital papers are from the Carina Gardner Evening Blooms collection.  The large flower  button is from my grandmother's button collection.

The doily is from Cheery Lynn Dies.  I have so much trouble with this die.  I cut a doily with wax paper to make sure the die releases so that problem is solved.  I cannot get it to cut the center of the doily all the way through.  I must have put it through twenty times.  I kept changing he position of the metal plate, added a shim of paper, nothing worked.  I got an imprint of the center, but no cut.  

This is the first time I've tried the dot background.  I still need a lot of practice with it!

Cardz 4 Guyz - Anything but a Card



This week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Anything but a Card."  That kind of challenge usually sets me off into a panic and this time was no different.  The night before it was due I still had no idea what I could do.  I remembered I had colored this tiger from Fitztown and hadn't used it yet so I figured I would make a tag with it.  I found the paper online at CanStock Photo.  That paper really makes the tag for me.I colored the image with Copics. Thr grasses are cut with the Silhouette.

All of my challenge entries disappeared again.  It seems to happen every time I check my blog with my cell phone.  Ticking me off!   I am trying to get all the challenges back.  Sorry if I miss some,

QKR - Swimming


QKR's challenge this week is "Swimming."  These images are available here and here.  The digital paper and elements are from Echo Park.

I have to apologize to all my dear cardland friends.  I haven't been very organized lately and haven't gotten to visit blogs as I should.  I am back to work now and that has thrown me for a loop.  Plus, it's monsoon season and that makes me absolutely miserable.  Our cooling system doesn't work when there is humidity in the air and we have had tons of humidity lately.  So here we are in the Arizona desert in July with almost no cooling.  Doesn't exactly make you look forward to doing anything.  It will get better.  Monsoon season only lasts a few weeks.

Cardz 4 Guyz Sketch Challenge


The challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is to follow the sketch.  I think I came pretty close.


I used this wonderful image from Whimsy Stamps.  I have so many images that I have had for years and never used.  This is one of them.  I colored him with Copic markers.  The digital papers are from Basic Grey.  I added a sentiment inside to make this a male birthday card.  I always need those.  I chose not to add a sentiment to the front.

Guest Designer-Through the Craftroom Door

I am a Guest Designer this week for Through the Craftroom Door!  The challenge is Anything Goes and this week the sponsor is Fitztown.  My favorite!  I chose this amazing Fitztown image, available here.  Check it out.  There are quite a few different country scenes available.

I found myself addicted to getting this done, to the dismay of my husband.  Every time I could spare a minute I was back coloring.  I really enjoyed seeing it come together.  It is larger than my normal size card,  it's 5 1/2 by 8 1/2.  Fortunately, I do have this size envelope so mailing won't be a problem.  The larger size made it much easier to do the detail.
