Hello again my friend. The start of a new week. I hope it turns out well for you. I'm excited to start a new Unit in my genealogy class about DNA Analysis.

Today I have a card for the Creatalicious challenge. The theme is Anything Goes - Optional Stars. As you can see, I did not go with the optional this time.

Materials Used: 
  • Image - Kenny K - Texting Friends
  • Sentiment - Power Poppy - Mixtape 1
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Crumb Cake
  • Designer Paper - Pion Design, Scent of Lavender, Small Leaves

It's probably the last challenge they're sponsoring as we are starting on the last day of their sponsorship... So if you would still like a few more KennyK digis, get ready to join our challenge!
I hope that you'll come on by and play along. Being the winner will be the only way you'll be able to get Kenny K digi stamps since they have closed their doors. Sad. One lucky winner will get this great prize. If not the winner, you could be chosen as one of the Top 3!

Bringing in the Tree - July CCC

Good morning my friends and Happy Sunday.

It was so good to get back in my stamp room to be somewhat creative. My Genealogy class has been keeping me pretty busy. After our Unit on Documentation (writing citations) finished up (with a B-), we moved on to Forensic Genealogy. So interesting. This is all about finding people and includes DNA Analysis. I approach it with a bit of trepidation. Hopefully my lame brain will be able to get around it and I'll do well in this one.

But on to the card I have for you today. This is for the Monthly Challenge of the Creative Card Chicks on Splitcoaststampers. Our kit came from Roxie (morgainegeiser). She sent along a couple images, some papers and some embellishments.

The elements I used from the kit were the image from Stampin Bella, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The designer paper is from Bo Bunny - Sleigh Ride. The sparkley snowflake and twine are from Stampin Up. I added some bling from my stash to the tree and also created snow with my liquid applique. I used Stampin Up Navy cardstock and a gray metallic gel pen. I put the sentiment on the inside, but didn't photograph it.

Copic Markers - B00, B01, B02, B60; BG90, BG93; C3, C5, C7; E23, E25, E27; E50, E51, E53; G21, G24, G46; R00.

That's it for today. It was a fun kit. There is another image from the kit that I've got colored up and hope to get it made into a card soon. Glad to be getting started on my Christmas cards.
