A Few Good Challenges

I have been busy creating and posting to SCS but I never get a moment to write up a blog post so this one will cover all that I have worked on this past week. First up is this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch SSSC101 and for this card I used a brand new There She Goes image called Wonderful Winter Wishes and some OA Scraps from my desk.  I colored the image with copics, used oval big scallop oval nesties and then added some teal ribbon from Michaels and some teal brads.

Next up is this weeks There She Goes Sketch, TSG91. I used their new stamp called Buckets of Love and paired it with some scraps of Imaginesce Paper. Yes you can say I am trying to work my way through my scraps. You cant believe what is going on in my scrap box!!!! I colored my image with copics, cut it out with a circle nestie and sponged the edges with cantelope ink while it was still in the die to give that white border effect. My green panel was dry embossed, the chain of circles was created with a MFT dienamic and my border was created with a fiskars border punch. Ribbon is PTI.

Now I will show you my Cats Pajamas Tuesday challenge entry which was TCPTUES143. This weeks challenge was to have the word love or heart in your sentiment. The ONLY set I had with the word LOVE in the sentiment for TCP was Tutu Much. I combined two of the little bunnies onto one image. Kind of looks like a mama and baby or teacher and student. I adore how this came out and the sketch that I followed was from Crazy for Challenges. C4C71. I colored my image with copics and a glitter spica pen over the tutus. My dp is Girls Paperie and then I added a banner sentiment which I created myself with a button, a pretty pink pirouette bow and some sugared brads I found in stash. Pretty cute huh!! Oh and the border punch was fiskars again. And last but not least was this weeks MFT Sketch Challenge. MFTWSC4. This image is an Ala Modes called Time to Celebrate which I colored with my copics cut out with a circle nestie and mounted onto a blossom nesties cutout. Satin ribbon is from Michaels. My pearls were colored with copics to match and my dp is Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 and lastly is that adorable heart border which was created with a TE Die.

Phew thats a long post!!! I hope you enjoy the creations. Have a good day and stay warm.
