Scaredy Cat!

Happy Friday!!

Isn't this scareD cat just too, too cute?  I love him.  He is this week's dollar digi from Stretch N Bubbles.
Alison changes the dollar digi every Friday...sometimes earlier.  So if you love this guy, go on over
and grab him up!

I colored him with copic greys.  The fence and spooky tree are cuts from Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up.  I find I go back to that cart so often for great prop cuts.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate your comments.

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

Well, today is bittersweet for me.  This will be my last post as a design team member at Priscillastyles.  I had a great time with the DT gals and Priscilla is a very talented woman.  Not only does she design wonderful digital stamps, but she owns and directs CDAC, which is huge!

My card is for today's sketch challenge at MMSC.  Here are your choices of sketches

I used the plain sketch to showcase this great masculine digi stamp called Vintage Auto.
I computer generated the sentiment.  Everything else on the card was in my stash.

A big goodbye to my pals over at Priscillastyles.  I will still be visiting and joining the challenges!

Dollar Digi Day

Hey Everyone,

Isn't this spider absolutely adorable?!?!  He is the latest dollar digi available for one week only at SNB.

I colored him with copic C greys 0 - 7.  The web he sits on is from the Cricut cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up.  The sentiment is a sticker from my stash (sorry can't remember who's it is).  I embossed the background paper with "Spots and Dots" Cuttlebug folder.  The bottom was punched with Martha Stewart's Drippy Goo border punch.

This little guy is so versatile.  Go on over and grab him for just a buck.  Remember, one week only!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy OWL-een

Hi Everyone,

There's a new challenge up at DYSU
This week our theme is Duo! So we want to see your design elements in twos or pairs.

This week's Sponsors:

Stretch ‘n Bubbles Winner’s Choice of 4 Digis

The Stamping Boutique Winner's Choice of 5 Digis

JLJ Designs $10 Gift Certificate

Lots of patterns here, no?  I find I am in a dot phase lately.  I just love dotted paper and flowers.  I used this adorable Owl digi image from The Stamping Boutique that can be found here.  I printed her twice onto patterned paper and then paper-pieced her together. 

To follow the theme I used two flowers, two swirl die cuts and two black rhinestones.

I hope you will go over and check out the great inspiration we have for you this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Wow, the summer is really over!
I am making Halloween cards, already!

This adorable witch's hat is the newest dollar digi available at
Each Friday, Alison posts one of her stamps as the Dollar Digi. 
 She keeps it available for one week only, so, if you love this 
digi run over and snag it.

I colored the hat with copics then added some Star Dust Stickles for the glitter on the hat band.
The pumpkin cuts were made with Cricut's Mini Monsters cartridge. The tree is from Paper Doll Dress Up.

This super cute charm was in my stash (I have a huge Halloween stash.  LOL)
The "beware" sticker is from an old Rusty Pickle Boo sticker sheet.

I've entered this in:
