Number 1 - Creatalicious No. 142

Okay, this is my last post for the day. I am just a few days late with my post.  Just sitting here watching fireworks on the TV. We had a terrible rain storm today and the big firework display here in H Town was cancelled. I wouldn't have gone, but a lot of people do. I'm watching Macy's right now, but will watch A Capital Fourth later.

This card is for the Creatalicious Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with the optional For A Hero! The theme is optional so you can still join the fun and not use the theme.

Last year we had some great heroes in our town - the Houston Astros! Our baseball team won the World Series. I colored this little guy with the Astros colors in honor of them. We're hoping that they can do a back to back and win again this year.

I think it may be time to look into getting a new camera. This one is not doing justice to the colors.
Sorry, but I can't figure out now where I got this stamp from. The cardstock is SU Midnight Muze and the designer paper is also SU Patterns Pack. The sentiment is from LOTV- Sweet & Simple.

The copics I used were B0000, B37; E00, E02, E04; YR02, YR04, and YR07.

I hope you'll come join in the fun. I can't wait to see your creations.

I Forgot!

Hello again. Here is my blog post number two for today. Another group I belong to on Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) is the Challenge Your Stash group. In this group the hostess of the month picks a theme for us and we each make a card using that theme. The fun part is that we are only allowed to use items we already have in our stash. No new items are supposed to be used.

Our hostess for June was Lola (Raevon). Her theme for us was to use either an elephant or a flamingo. I had a hard time trying to decide which to use since I had images of both of them. I finally decided on this cute elephant image from Mo Manning called I Forgot.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Mo Manning - I Forgot
  • Sentiment - Lili of the Valley - Sweet & Simple
  • Cardstock - Papertrey Ink - Sweet Blush
  • Designer Paper - Prima - Rondelle Collection
  • Copic Markers - B0000; G24, G40; R20; W0, W2, W4
  • Accessories - Bling and ribbon from my stash; Nestabilities dies Classic Circle; Scallop Circle

I'm Stuck on You!

Hello friends! Yes, I'm still here. It's been such a long time that I almost forget how to create a blog post. First, Happy 4th of July! I hope you are enjoying your day. It was nice having the day off even though I spent most of it doing homework. I'm counting down the weeks though - only three more to go before this semester is over!

I've tried to squeeze in a little crafting here and there between class work. So I have three cards to get put on my blog. This is number one. I should have blogged it back on June 21, but I was too busy with school to get it on here even though I had it done. This one was for Creative Card Chicks, a stamping swap group on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month we have a different hostess who puts a kit together and sends it out to all the rest of the group. We each then make at least one card to share with the group. It's always fun to see what everyone creates. They are all different and always amazing. The month of June was Debby's turn to be hostess. She sent us all these cute succulent images, some great designer paper to go along with it and some fun embellishments.

The image is from Woodware and the paper from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Deadbeat Designs. I had to figure a way to use the tag and I like how this turned out.

There was so much more to the kit. Maybe I'll have time one day to do some more crafting with the supplies. I usually write down what Copics I used, but sorry, I didn't do these. I think they were part of the RV and YG families.
