Pumpkin Mouse

Hi Blog friends, I colored up this cute image, Punkin Mouse, from Phindy's place and have been waiting for a challenge to use it with. The colors in my card loosely fit the color challenge at Phindy's Place challenge blog this week so I'm entering it! "Opposites on the color wheel" I'm using the colors where yellow and orange overlap and hues of purple. Close enough!

I also am using the current Mojo Monday sketch and playing along with C4C-Halloween challenge. Links are below.

Rosh Hashana Greetings!

Hi all, This card is for some extended family members who celebrate the Jewish holidays. I cut the bird with the cricut and the Tie the Knot cartridge. The paper is K&Co. The alphabet letter stamps and gem flourishes are from Michaels. For all those who celebrate, Happy New Year!

Hi Friends, My daughter needed a wedding card for the coming weekend so I whipped this up! No, not really, it takes me a long time to make a card but I had weeks of notice. I didn't use a sketch, just started with  the focal point of the 3 layered Spellbinders and a beautiful Verve stamp. The matte gold paper is shimmery but not too much. The white and ivory is shimmery too. Can't remember the paper manufacturer but I got it at Joanne's. Then I just added some lace and black velvet ribbon from RRR. You know these butterflies, right? They are 2 sizes of Martha Stewart punches. The card is large, 5 X 7. I don't like a wedding card to be too small. Believe it or not, it's an arranged marriage so my DD asked me to go easy on the "found my true love" stuff!  Hope you like! Kim

Hi all, I have a card to share today that was my Nephew's birthday card from Saturday. I used the divine Echo Park 6x6 paper pad, Walk in the Park. The papers are really bright and cheerful. Just love Echo Park paper. I used the Sweet Stop Sketch 126 with a spin (to use stars on your card). I moved the text to the center as a focal point and used a couple of Spellbinder dies to cut out. I doodled the dots around the diecut, added those adhesive stars on the Basic Grey buttons and tied some PTI bakers twine in brown. Links to some challenges are below. Have a good week! Kim :)

Sunflower.Thank you.

 Hi blog friends! Time to change our cardstock colors to Autumn colors, huh? I used the -----color challege at --------. I also used the SFYTT sketch for September. I ABSOLUTELY love this sketch. I think I really like rounded corners. The image is a Fred She Said digi. The set has 4 flowers. It's one of the first digis I ever bought several years ago. I used some Basic Grey paper and a button from the Curio line.

Here I was trying a different photo angle. Links for the challenges follow.

Hi all, I made this card for a Flourishes Challenge, Colors of Fall. I bought this Flourishes Peacock stamp set months ago and I've been kinda at a loss as to what occasion to use it for. I decided to just make the card and hope something will come up. I was inspired by the teal on the color pallate. And i used something close to the nougat color.
I used a Mojo Monday sketch from last November. If anyone can suggest an occasion to use this stamp set for, please leave me a comment!

 Hi all, I here with a card for my In-laws anniversary, 60 something years of marriage! It's tomorrow, on September 11th. Too bad they have to share it with the national tragedy. :(  God bless the families of all who were lost.
I had so much fun making this! Gosh, I love pink and black! This purr button digi image is available here. I love the wedding kitties!!! It may be a little too cutesy for my inlaws but I wanted to use it. The sketch used is the current MFT Wednesday Stamp Club on SCS. And the colors are from Shabby Tea Room this week. (links below)
Thanks for visiting, friends.  Kim Colors, wedding,anniversary Sketch

 Hi all, I have another card for this week's Phindy's Place Challenge. Anything goes with a Phindy's Image which they have the first week of the month. I made this last January and never shared it so I'm doing it now!
I made this for my sister's birthday who is an avid skier. I used some cute winter paper which I zig=zaged with black thread. I added some sparkly alpha stickers.
I added some stickles for some snowy sparkle too. Those 3 panels are supposed to be different sizes, I didn't go crazy with the paper trimmer! Below is this inside. Thanks for looking. Kim


Hi Blog Friends, it's September! Oh No. I have a card to share today with the cutest Phindy's Place image called Celebrate with Cake. This week's Phindy's challenge is Anything goes as long as you use a Phindy's image.
I recently applied for their Design Team. I made the finals but it wasn't in the cards for me this time around. Maybe next time!,
For this card, I paired this cute image with Oct.Afternoon papers, a prima flower, button, a gem for the cherry on the cake, and a border punch. This is my first card with Copic coloring. I need practice but I like how it came out. Usually I color with Prisma Pencils.
I'll be back again this week with more cards.
Kim :)

Happy Bird-Day

Hi all, I made this card for my sister in law that fit several of this week's challenges on some card
blogs I visited. This is a pure innocence digi from Heather Ellis' site. I paper pieced the dress. The paper is MME, don't know which collection. I colored her with my new copics. I have about 25 now so I'll still be coloring with Prismas sometimes. The sketch was a MFT Stamp Wednesday sketch from a few weeks ago.

Edit: I went away for Labor Day Weekend and missed the challenges I was playing with this card. Oh well!!!
Hope you enjoy looking!
