So 2012 is a blur. Didn't seem to get much accomplished. But 2013 is starting off with a bang! I've promised myself to work on my art everyday. And my cards are part of that promise. So here are a few that were created over the weekend. Most are very plain but oh so cute. Thanks for taking a look!

Button Button

I created this to enter in the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week. Their challenge was to make it bright and there had to be a button in your project somewhere. Enjoy!

Winter Wonderland

This week's challenge at Squigglefly was to create a card for the cold winter weather.
I used Catching Snow by artist Cheryl Alger. I just love the big red balls that make the image pop! Hope you're on your way to holiday fun! Join the challenge this week and see what you can come up with!

Happy Birthday!

The challenge put to the design team this week was to create a card for a birthday. Easy enough.
So here is "Wanda".
A cute little piggy from Suzanne Urban at Squigglefly and she says it all. Drink in hand and absolutely FAAAABULOUS! I colored her using Copic markers and then added a little bling and some hemp thread in purple. I love turquoise so of course she had to have a couple of faaaabulous turquoise papers and some jewels. Stop by Squigglefly and join the challenge (take a look at their new images too!).

Can you imagine?

So the challenge at Squigglefly this week was to create a card but not to use any patterned paper. I started out thinking "Ah that's easy". Not so my friend!
I'm so used to starting out my projects because the cute paper ignites my imagination.
Well this week I had to create on my own.

Here's my card.
I used the image from Squigglefly called "Funky Bunny". I know it works at Easter but how about for some bunny's birthday?
I flocked the bunny's tail, added jewels on the bow, dotted the bow with Stickles, found some old buttons in the button can, and made a bow from antique silk ribbon.

Pretty cute...don't cha' think?

Stop by and see the new artists at Squigglefly. Meytal, Rachel Goble, and Gemma Mortlock.
Be sure to check out the wonderful new images!

Happy Halloween

I don't celebrate Halloween, although I do enjoy seeing the little ones in costume. But I did want to make something for my office door since everyone at work enjoys dressing up in costumes. So this hanger was my project. I used the image from Squigglefly called Halloween Bunch - Witch. Colored it with Copic markers, added a little glitter and some Glossy Accents. I chalked the outside edge of the image and layered a couple of papers. I think she's just cute. Hope you get your candy bucket full!
