Hello! / C C Designs

Hello friends! I am back with another Swiss Pixie design from CC Designs. This is "Heidi Among the Flowers". I am entering her into two challenges.
Stamp Something -"flowery"
CardMaker Magazine Weekly challenge on the Swap Board: Tilt A Whirl (placing elements on your card at a tilt or angle)

I colored Heidi with Prismacolor color pencils and used Crystal Stickles on her wings. Printed paper is from the Tiffany collection by We R Memory Keepers and cardstock is by Bazzill. Pearls are by Kaiser, buttons by Hero Arts and the picket fence punch is by Martha Stewart.

I'm having a hot but nice week. My son is returning from his class in Italy where he has been for the past month. I am anxious to hear all about his adventure. Hope all of you are having a fabulous week and as always...thanks for stopping by!

2 Challenges - 2 Firsts

I am entering this into 2 challenges:
Stamp Something - Something digital ( both my image and sentiment are digital downloads by CC Designs)
CardMaker Magazine / Card Swap Weekly Challenge - a sketch (pictured below)

I just recently started participating on the CardMaker message board so this is my first challenge with them and my first time to use a digi image. I don't know why I have avoided digi images, but I am glad I finally decided to try it. My image is Laying Nora by CC Designs which I purchased from allthatscraps.com. They have a great selection and wow....within seconds I had my image to size, rotate and do what ever I wanted to do with it. Plus I don't have to worry about finding a place to store my stamp in my craft room. What a wonderful idea this digi stamp thing is! I will always have a place in my heart though for wood mounted rubber stamps.! The printed paper is by Bo Bunny and cardstock is by Bazzill.

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone is keeping cool. It has been very hot here in my neck of the woods!

Magnolia's Lapp Tilda & my fur grandbabies

I colored this image, Magnolia's Lapp Tilda, a couple of weeks ago to use for a challenge. The challenge ended, didn't have my card made.....tried for another challenge but alas that one also ended before I could get my card made. Just wasn't meant to be. So instead I made a card on the simpler side with not so bumpy embellishments so that I could use it as a note card to send to my friend in Canada. Now let's hope it doesn't take me as long to mail it to my friend as it did for me to make this card! :)
I colored the image with Prismacolor color pencils. Used some Spellbinders dies and Paper Shaper punches for the flowers and circle shapes. Cardstock is Bazzill but no idea what brand the printed paper is.

Thought I would also share my grand fur babies with all of you . No grand kids yet but my daughter has 7 dogs....yes I did say 7! All are rescue dogs. Pictured from left to right is Harley, Bear, Bugsy, Loki, Cody, Ranger and Joker. I love this picture and get the biggest kick out of it every time I look at it. One day I hope to have grandchildren without all the fur! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
