Forget Me Not


Forget Me Not - Today starts a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. This weeks challenge is to use something reflective. I used some silver reflective paper to cut the forget me not flowers.

The designer paper is a scrap out of my purple drawer and I have no idea as to who's it is. I edged it with a silver doper.

The sentiment is SU and I finished off the card with 3 purple pearls.

The challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is Blue! What a fun challenge and with so many shades of blue, a very lovely challenge too!

I do not use my inks enough, so my experiment was to create a winter scene using only my blue inks.

Ride'em


Ride'em - Those of us at Creative Card Crew are back to work. Our first challenge of the year, is to make something for a child. I am excited about this one. Children love getting cards and it is fun to get to me playful.

My Designer papers are Jillibean Soup's Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup.


My image is Imagine That's Lil' Cowpokes. Isn't she adorable? With this image you get not only the line art, but also you get the male version, the pre-colored versions of both, several sentiments and some digi papers.

I colored her with Copics and added some Stickles to the studs on her skirt, her boots and the band on her hat. After all, cowgirls need their bling.



All papers were inked with Vintage Photo distress inks and the card was finished off with some brads.

Now ya'll come and join us for a root-in toot-in good challenge at Creative Card Crew.

Mice


Mice - Today's challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is Chocolate! How exciting is that!


I had a lot of help making these. My 5, 4 and 1 year old grandsons were the mice makers.


The ingredients are: Maraschino cherries with stems (for the tails,) Sliced Almonds (for the ears,) and Chocolate kisses (for the faces,) Then melted chocolate for the "glue."


We made a big mess, but the boys loved doing it. I started out doing this with the 2 older boys and the baby keep coming up to me and saying me. I thought he wanted some of the chocolate kisses, so I keep giving them to him, but he was not eating them. Then I tried giving him a cherry, but that still did not make him happy. 

Then it hit me, He wanted to make them too! He was so adorable dipping the cherries in the chocolate.


Here is the nicer looking ones that we made.


While they are not so pretty, they boys had a wonderful time and they are very tasty too!
