Wow, It's Been a While...

since I last posted anything, sorry for being MIA!  Have just been really busy with life and haven't had a chance to do much crafting, but I did want to show you this cute challenge that I took on.  Misfit Crafter was having a challenge with altering a bag for her daughters birthday coming up.  She got these bags at a goodwill and wanted to use them somehow for the Birthday party, so she was so kind to send us all one and we had to alter it and make sure to cover up the name on the bag.  Her theme was Hello Kitty, which I LOVE by the way, so this is what I came up with.  I do not have a "cricut" or any other cutting machine besides a cuttlebug, so I couldn't cut anything out, but I did it the ol'fashion way and printed out a Hello Kitty pic and cut it out myself.  I did a little paper piecing on her dress and added some embellishments.  The other side of the bag is made with some really pretty shiny stickers that my daughter had, I embellished it on the side and the inside as well, with these stickers. I used black cardstock to cover the name up and a Martha Stewart edge punch.  I really like how it turned out, simple but cute and sparkly.  Thanks for looking!

A Card For a Couple of Challenges!

Here is a card I made with a "Sweet N Sassy" digi image that I had colored up already.  I have used the sketch over at S2G's challenge #64.  Their twist this week was to use this sketch.  I turned the sketch around, so that it would fit this image. I also used this card for a color challenge on a cafemom group.  The other challenges I used it for was for:

Cute Card Thursday - Summary colors
Clearly Delightful - Use buttons, pearls or bling

A Baby Card!

I made this card for a friend who is expecting a baby girl at the end of this month.  Her theme for the baby's room is "ladybugs" so when I saw this cute digi stamp from Sweet N Sassy Stamps, I just had to have it.  I love the little ladybug crawling on the clothesline, so cute!    I also participated in their SNR group challenge last week.  It was to use pink & yellow, which is one of my favorite color combos.  I am also submitting this card for S2G's Twisted Thursday challenge where they want you to use "green" on your card.  I just love all their new "Alice in Wonderland" digi's!  I can't wait to get my hands on some of them.

TGF Cha Relay

TGF is giving away a Free digi starting today all through the week, but in order to get each digi free, you have to create something with todays free digi and post it in their gallery.  My daughter, Olivia,  saw this digi, and loved it, so here is her card.  She is 11 1/2 yrs old and is starting to get into crafting more with me.  She loves to draw mystical animals and has a blog with some of her drawings on it.  She will be getting more on there soon.  I thought she did pretty good!
