Anything Goes with Party Time Tuesdays!

Since it is the last week of the year, this will be my last Party Time Tuesday post as a design team member.  Sadly, I can't carry out another 6 month term due to a military move next year.  (But, there are a few tricks up my sleeve, so stay tuned!)

Here is my last project with Party Time Tuesdays.  The theme is Anything Goes:

The digi is by Kenny K and was colored with Copic markers.  Background paper by DCWV (Glitter Sweet).  Cardstock is Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise by Stampin Up! Sentiment is by My Pink Stamper.  Also added some glitter to her wings.  

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

New Challenge at Party Time Tuesdays

We have a color challenge at Party Time Tuesdays! Bust out your red, green, and gold!  Here's my project:

This digi is called Holly Fairy and it's by Paper Makeup Stamps.  Colored her with Copics.  Used some scrap Stampin Up Christmas paper.  The rub on and punches are also SU.  Added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to her wings, Crystal Effects to her cheeks and poofy trim (on her coat and boots) and also colored some SU pearls gold to go in the corner of the card.  

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

Update on me: Still on jury duty!  Looks like the case will go way into January.  I'm off from work, but spending my holiday break in the courthouse.  Very interesting experience. Now that my craft fairs are all done, I'm looking forward to my weekends back! Hooray! Hopefully I can update my blog more, visit you guys, and replenish my Etsy shop! 'Till then!

New Challenge at Party Time Tuesdays!

There's a new challenge this week at Party Time Tuesdays!  This time, make a Kid's Christmas Card!

Just a simple Cricut cut on some glittered card stock.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Tiny Wishes stamp set.  Easy peasy!

Update on me: I've been chosen for jury service! It's a very important case and will probably go on for weeks, if not months.  I'll be missing all of Christmas break, but I'm highly interested in the jury and trial process.  I'll come and visit you all when I have a free minute! (Seems like when I get a free minute, it gets taken from me!) Miss you guys!

Christmas Tags at Party Time Tuesdays

This week at Party Time Tuesdays, we want to see your handmade Christmas tags!!!  Here's a couple of mine:

Simple cut from the Stampin Up 2 Tags Die, some designer paper, retired felt shapes, and a "to: from:" stamp and I was done!  

I make a lot of Christmas tags, cards, money holders, and gift holders for Christmas but they are always for other people that purchase them from me.  After it all, I honestly have no time to make my own and end up with the peel and stick kind! Hopefully this year will change. :)

Can't wait to see what you guys create!

New Challenge at Lia Stampz - Color Inspiration

Hey guys! I have two craft fairs next weekend so this weekend is being spent MAKING AS MUCH STUFF AS I CAN!!! Lol.  All my preparation and planning has all come down to this weekend and next weekend.  After these next two weeks, I can get back to my creative juices and make cards...for fun! Can't wait for Christmas break. :)

Anywho, there's a new challenge over at Lia Stampz!  This fortnight, it's a color inspiration challenge!

Dark Green, Rust, Orange, Khaki, and Sage Green.

The winner of this challenge will get this adorable digi called Balloon Love.  I inked her up with Copic markers and put her on some die cuts.  Awesome glittery paper makes the background simple to do and I topped the whole thing off with a retired stamp from SU in Gumball green and a Crumb Cake corduroy brad (also retired).  

Can't wait to see what you guys create!
