Santa Baby

I am very familiar with Christmas babies.  My husband’s birthday is Christmas Day and my nephew was born on December 23rd. This month’s challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge is Santa.  One of the hospitals I ship to for Send A Smile 4 Kids requests Welcome and Congratulations Baby cards. So why not a Santa Baby? Here is the card I created.

The image is a digi from Tiddly Inks colored with Copics and I used puffy fabric paint on the hat and the tips of the shoes. The paper and stickers are from my stash, the sentiment is a Hero Arts rubber stamp embossed with fine detail white embossing powder. I used some washi tape and ribbon from my stash and blinged it up with some stickles.

In addition to Sparkles Christmas Challenge, I would like to participate in:

Lots of Layers and a Sketch

For today’s card I used this week’s sketch over at Try Stampin On Tuesday. I also used lots of layers which is the challenge over at  4 Crafty Chicks. Here is the card:

The image is from Tiddly Inks (Annabelle and Puppy Love). I coordinated all the colors with papers from my stash and colored the image with copics.

I will be participating in both the challenges mentioned above and this card will be going to Send A Smile for Kids (I am a shipper).

SAS4KIDS Cards 4 Girls

The current challenge over at SAS4KIDS is calling 4 Girl Cards. I chose to use a digi from one of the sponsors of the challenge Paper Nest Dolls. I loved the bunny slippers on this “Princess and the Pea” image. The papers I used are from Recollections which I have had forever, the sentiment and ribbon are from Stamps of Life. I colored her in Copics and Wink of Stella Glitter Markers (the pea and the tierra). The dies are Card Creator Spellbinders. I don’t like to use any embellishments that can cause a choking hazard to the kids so I often will use Dazzles on my cards to add a little bling.

This card will be going to SAS4KIDS (I am a volunteer shipper — shipping to St. Christopher’s Hospital in Philadelphia, PA and Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA).

Thanks for stopping by.

Words 2 Craft By September Challenge

The September/October Challenge over at Words 2 Craft By is “Every Child Deserves a Hero”. This is the quote to use as inspiration:

Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists they become the best they can possibly be. Rita Pierson

I am a grandmother to three wonderful human beings. I love spending time with them and seeing their achievements at each milestone in their lives. Yesterday the youngest (6 months old) said MOM for the first time. My other grandson is almost 10 and loves every sport on the face of the earth and stops at nothing to at least try it out. My granddaughter is 7 and loves, loves, loves football. She is on a flag football team this year (yea girl power). My husband and I try to go to all their games. Grandparents play a huge role in being a champion for their grandchildren.

Here is my card which was inspired by the above quote.

I used an image from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps, colored with Copics. The sentiment was computer generated. Papers from Stamps of Life and the bling is from Hero Arts.

Swinging With The Leaves

The current challenge over at SAS4KIDS is for Cute Fall or Halloween Cards 4 Kids.

sas4kids-fallThis is one of my favorite digi images from Sassy Cheryl’s. I printed her out and colored her up with Copics and Wink of Stella markers (her shoes, socks and hair bow). The papers are from Stamps of Life. No sentiment so that it can be used for any occasion. I punched out a few extra leaves and added them to the card.

Entering and supporting the SAS4KIDS challenge.

Mermaids

I won (random draw) this digi by answering a question in a poll over at Imagine That digistamps (facebook page). I love how the sentiment is designed to hug and fit perfectly along the mermaid. I will be linking this to the monthly challenge which is entitled Summer.

Imagine That digistamp: Mermaid Swimming; colored with Copics; Darice EF; Recollections flower embellishments.

Sing To The Lord

A very good friend and also my bible study buddy is going through a rough emotional time, grieving over not being able to see her granddaughters regularly. Her only child and his family live an eight hour drive, so they only get to see them three to four times a year. So I suggested she send them cards so they can keep them and the girls will be reminded of her and her husband when they look at them. They are eight and five. I am making her a bunch to have on hand. This is my first one.

Sing-to-the-LordThis sweet digital image is from Imagine That digis By Kris.  The papers are from Stamps of Life and so is the floral die cut border. I thought Psalm 96:1 was perfect with this image. I generated the verse on my computer and the enamel dots are from my stash.
