Little Red Wagon - Down on the Farm with Janice



Little Red Wagon Challenge day again!  Janice wants us to create something the you might see 'Down on the Farm'.  I thought this fun Gerda Steiner image would be perfect.  Note the artistic license I took to change the sentiment from big hugs to big hogs...



I am hoping you will have a chance to create a Farm related creation and will link up with us over at Little Red Wagon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Aloha,
Brenda

PS - I love it when the planets align and I can make a card for one of my teams that will also work for another challenge.  This little tag will be linked to the Gerda Steiner Stamp of the month challenge.  If you want to join, just purchase this months image, link it up to the challenge and you will get next months image free!

TCP 332 - Word Up


It's TCP Tuesday again and we have a fun challenge for you.  We are calling it Word Up!  As you may have figured, we want you to feature words on your creations.  The Cat's Pajamas has a plethora of wonderful word dies and stamps.

Here's my card using the beautiful Always  and Stitched Hearts CutUps -



I did some watercolor smooshing and used the die to cut Always.  I then used the watercolored piece as one of the base layers.  A stitched heart CutUp and a few sequins were added for just a bit of pizazz.

Here are the details for our challenge -

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.
For more ideas, stop in and see ChristineDeborah and Wendy.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations!

These Mondays are rolling around pretty fast.  With that being said, it's time to welcome you to another i {heart} sketches with a (double) tWist challenge over at From the Heart Stamps!


Here's your sketch and tWists -

And here's my take...and I took a few liberties with the sketch this week.  Here's my card using Long Stocking -



I had a bunch of fun resizing this darling image and then decorating it up with a white gel pen.  The images are colored with Copic markers and the Believe die is from Simon Says Stamp.

I want to thank you all for joining us in our last 2 challenges.  I hope you'll join us again this week!

Aloha,
Brenda

PS - I just learned this will work with Merry Monday's current challenge - stockings!  Love it when this happens, entering here.

It's time for another CRAFT Challenge!  We would love for you to join us this week in making and sharing your Christmas projects.

Our Sponsor this week is -


Here's my card using Dear Santa from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps -


I was still in the recycle mode and decided to use some old, yellowed watercolor paper.  I distressed and added some distress ink to the edges.  I then colored the picture with distress markers.  Kinda fun for a change of pace.

I hope you will be able to join us this week over at the CRAFT Challenge blog this week to share you Christmas creation!  Thanks for stopping by.

Hogs and Kisses PigWit Reminder

Happy Wednesday!  Time is flying and if you don't believe it, I am posting my From the Heart Stamp of the Month reminder card!  Wow, so fast!  If you don't know the drill, here are all the details.  Basically, after an initial purchase, as long as you enter the challenge every month, you will receive the next months image via email at no additional cost.

And look at how sweet this months image is.  Here is my take on  Hogs and Kisses PigWit -


Don't procrastinate now, you still have plenty of time at this point to join us this month.  Head on over to the shop to pick up PigWit if you haven't been playing along.  If you already have him in your hands, color him up and link up to share your wonderful creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you have questions or comments, I would love to hear them.

Aloha,
Brenda
