1st DT post for Stamping Vacation!!!

Crissy's Digi for Whimsy Stamps
*Tried to show a close-up so you could see the glitter I added with a Copic Spica marker*

This is my first DT card for Stamping Vacation's Build-A-Sketch challenge HERE!
There is a list of pieces you need to cut out and I just store mine in a chocolate box (chocolates already eaten of course! LOL!) and then for each month you will use a few of these pieces to build your own sketch and create something with it!! The list of pieces and the #'s you use are posted on the Stamping Vacation Blog. I haven't missed one of these challenges yet as I LOVE being able to create my own sketch and the pieces really do help instead of just drawing on paper.
Pop on over and see all the other challenges going on right now and the more challenges you enter this month the better chance you have for winning a $25 gift certificate!

This card also fits the following challenges:
A Crafty Little Place - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - pastel green, pink and cream
The Creative Cottage - Celebrations
Stamp Something - Cute
Oh Alice - Sparkle
Merry's Giveaway - Color something and use a sticker
** This is a great giveaway of stickers and aquamarkers! **

Monkeying Around Birthday!

Digi is from Bugaboo

I am going to my parents house tonight to another birthday b-day dinners kind of get scattered out amongst family. This time we will be getting together for 4 peoples b-days. Mine, my hubby, my sister and her hubby. All of our birthdays fall within one month of each other so we just decided it was best to do it all in one night. This is the card I made for my brother-in-law. The icing is puffy paint but not sure you can see that in the picture. Inside it says..."Stop monkeying around and eat your cake!" HEHE!

I am MUCH happier with this Babushka card than the last one even without a sentiment! I think because I had more time to look and think about this card. My work is never at its best when I am in a hurry! These colors remind me of Fall ... I just love that season!! :)

Get Well Soon

This is a bit different for me as I usually always color an image. I wanted to try and do a clean and simple card. I like how it turned out but my glitter glue decided to make a "splat" when I was drawing the swirl on the butterfly so it kind of globbed up and my ribbon isn't exactly centered ... I guess you win some and you lose some! Perfection is over-rated right?? Overall I love the bright and cheery feel to this card! :)

Babushka Doll #2

Digi is from The Stamping Boutique

Well my blog re-design isn't finished yet but I am happy I was able to figure out a 3 column template and I see some of you were shocked I put a pic of myself/hubby as my avatar...figured I would keep you on your toes! HEHE!

Now this is a card I did in a hurry and I'm not really happy with it. I feel like it needs something else....but then again maybe that is just because I don't have a sentiment put on it yet?? Either way, I figured I better show the good, the bad and the ugly! LOL!
