Hold On To Your Paper Trimmers, and your Copic Markers....

Wow it's Challenge day today and let me tell you... THIS is a busy Friday!!!
I have 3 posts to make today, and I've been debating on whether to make 3 separate posts or combine them all.  Needless to say I chose to combine them all into one post....  So here we go.....

First up:  The Stamping Bazaar Challenge this week is "TAGS"  we want to see your tags, whether it be 1 tag decorated, or tags incorporated on your card or project somewhere.  I have decided to decorate a tag, and use lots and lots of distressing on it.

I used "Susie Pie" for my tag.  You can find this adorable little Kangaroo by visiting The Stamping Bazaars Shop, where you will also find LOTS of Marina Neira's adorable designs.    We hope to see you join in on this fun challenge.  After all, who can resist these cute little critters?


It's the 25th of the month, and that means we are having another fabulous fun filled challenge over at Elisabeth Bells World Challenge blog. 

This month we want to see your Recipe Cards.  That's right, A RECIPE for FOOD or DRINK....  The rest of the DT, and GDT and I all had a blast creating something that is not the "Usual" card, and turning it into a recipe card.  We can't wait to see what you will come up with. 

Remember ANY Elisabeth Bell Stamp or Digi can be used for challenges at Elisabeth Bells World. 

This is what I made.  Included is the recipe for "Blueberry Juice"

WHAT????  Those stamps, and that tag don't look like anything Elisabeth Bell, do they?  Well, they aren't, but what's inside?????  

Just look at these little sweeties!!!  These 3 girls are exclusive Elisabeth Bell Designs for SCACD.  (Susana's Custom Art and Card Design)

Once the little flaps are opened up, the recipe is revealed.....

Here I have use "Lemonade Anyone" from Belles 'n Whistles, the little one on the right is from Whiff of Joy, and the cutie on the bottom is one of the Sweet Art Ebony Girls from Elisabeth Bell. 

All images on this project were colored with Copics, I have distressed the edges with my Zutter Distrezz it All, and then added some ink from Stampin Up to the edges.  I have used my easy sew crafting tool and then stitched the purple floss by hand.

I just LOVE the outcome of this little recipe booklet.  The rest of the DT and I can't wait to see what you'll create for this challenge.  You have until March 22nd to enter... Lets see what your creative mind comes up with!  =)


Last but certainly not least....  Phindy's Place Friday Challenge.

Since it's the last Friday of the Month, we have a sketch to follow this week.  Our very own Anne-Marije Poppen has designed this amazing sketch. 

I decided to make my card this week a "thank you" card.  They are always handy to have... Just in case, right?

Isn't she a little cutie???  She is called "Big Boots Girl" and you can find her in Phindy's Place online Shop.  I used papers from Color Bok, and then of course distressed AGAIN with my Zutter Distrezz it all...  I can't get enough of that.  I LOVE the distressed look, and it's so much fun to use.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and of course I colored this sweet little girl with Copics!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and sticking with me throughout this lengthy blog post.
