So today you are visiting to me see a Flutter By card, right? Well it's a fun challenge and I hope you will play along...SHIMMER AND SHINE! Let's create a card with lots of bling, sparkle and shimmer on it! Remember you must include a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL on it.
How is that for some sparkle, folks? I used Stickles on the clouds, wings and halo. I added a few blingy rhinestones to the side of the card as well. Let me tell you this baby is one beautiful shimmer & shiny card!
The image is a fabulous digi from Christy at Tiddly Inks...LOVE her stuff! I have so many images I've purchased but have not used. They are so cute how can I not?!
I even made this an actual card and finished the inside too!
I was able to make this card for a number of challenges:
So what do you think? I'm think it's a little cutie patootie!! Please stop by the Flutter By Blog to link your creation for the challenge. Also, take a moment to stop by my DT sista's blogs...you won't be disappointed!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

So when I look at this picture I instantly think Santa should be peeking around the tree. I also, love the colors and there would definitely be presents under the tree too.
One of the pattern papers I used actually have presents on it...kind of hard to tell though. I did some piercing as I get the homespun feel when I look at the photo. I used stripes since the stocking and pillows have that. I put some ribbon on it too since the tree had bows.
I hope you will join us this week. It's never too early to start making those Christmas cards! Stop by the CSAYL blog to link your creation and to see the other fabulous creations that the DT did!

Today for Softpencil Thursday, I'm using the digi MY BEST FRIEND. I love that the dog has spots...so fun to color. I can totally see making him furry by using some flock or maybe even fluffy with some Flower Soft!
This card came together rather quickly as I found the layout in a stamp catalog and the paper was in my scrap bin.
Have you been to the Softpencil Blog lately? There is SO MUCH going on!! Elizabeth is introducing new things left and right! Plus there is a SALE...Buy one get one FREE!! Everyone loves a sale so be sure to stop by and see! While you are there, pick up MY BEST FRIEND for yourself!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I still decided to use butterflies this week since I just got this new butterfly die :) I have a lot going on right now and am running short on time so I decided to create a CAS card. You know what - it felt good too. Being able to get a card done quickly AND I like it - totally plus!
I love all the challenges that are out there but find that I don't always get to play. I have a binder where I keep the sketches, color combos, etc. in so that I can refer back to them. For this card I used an old Clean & Simple Sketch #95 and my color combo comes from Color Throwdown (#107). I made my own background paper by using the large flower from the Blossoms & Blessings stamp set from TAC.
I hope you will join in our challenge this week and play along! Be sure to stop by the Flutter By Wednesday blog to link your NEW creation. Sorry about last week and not getting a card finished. Woodware USA was the sponsor and they have some cute stuff! I really wanted to create something but just ran out of time! Be sure to check the blog to see if you won the prize though!!
Thanks for stopping by!

I made a Fall test tube treat holder at my LSS a few weeks ago and knew I wanted to try one for Halloween. Not sure I'll make these double test tube holders though...but they are fun for someone special.
So whatcha think? My husband informed me that if I made these for birthday's that people would LOVE it...guess I better make that happen, huh?
Thanks for stopping by tonight. To see the rest of the fabulous creations from other Angels visit their blogs below:

Well it's creative for me to use two...normally I just use one :) Plus I used two different colors - I know WOW, right? I think as my to-do list grows my mojo disappears. Has that ever happened to you?
I hope you will join us this week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long! I'll be looking for YOUR creation!!

I wasn't sure if I wanted a sparkly pumpkin or a glossy one. I decided to go glossy...that decision was partial made because I didn't have the Stickles I wanted to use, lol!
The whole background thing is new for me...not sure I love it but will be practicing it again in hopes to improve upon it. When my LSS held a special make n take by MFT, I was shown how to do a background. I did that (which it looked decent) but had to try something more. So I added violet and then couldn't get it to blend very well. So to "fix" it I decided to try the dot technique...but only doing it around the image. It's kind of cool...like I said I don't love it but it's not bad. I have a bad habit of doing too much...sometimes I should just leave things alone. If I did that though I wouldn't learn new things, right? But what about that pumpkin...that my friends is a nice one, don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed HALLOWEEN PEEK-A-BOO. Be sure to stop by the Softpencil blog to see all the latest and greatest. Elizabeth now has vinyl clings to purchase...too cool!!

In the meantime head on over to the Flutter By Wednesday blog for some inspiration! The challenge this week is to use BUTTONS as well as a butterfly, fairy or angel. It's a fun challenge and I can't wait to see all the wonderful submissions!!
I'm truly sorry for not having a card. Right now there is so much going on I feel as though I'm totally drowning. I need to get a routine down and figure out how to juggle all the commitments that I have. I realize I'm not on a lot of DT's but with PTO, soccer, Preschool, Girl Scouts and my TAC business I have a lot going on! I always thought I was pretty organized but you can only do so much in a day...especially when you aren't feeling well! Thanks for understanding and I hope you stop back by!!

So what's the challenge you ask? Well I'm sure this is something that you have laying around - use at least 3 brads or eyelets on your Christmas card...the more the merrier!!
I'm pretty sure it's a good thing the weekend is here - I need some R&R!! Hopefully I will have some productive time in the 'ol studio, too since I need to get LOTS of projects done!! I hope you'll join in on the CSAYL challenge this week - jet on over to the blog to see all the details, the fabulous creations by the DT and to link your creation!

Enough about that you are here to see my Softpencil Thursday creation. Today we got to use a fabulous new image, A GIFT FOR MY TEACHER. Well as the name implies I had to make a little gift for the teacher.
It's a smartie holder which I found on Dawn's blog. It's so easy and fun to make. Last night we made Halloween ones at my stamp club. I'm also making birthday ones for my preschoolers.

Also, don't try and fix a mistake that isn't really a mistake at midnight. Because folks, it now is a mistake...yes, the ladybug has freaky eyes...don't look at that...check out my coloring though....lovin' the tail...
Amazing that I remembered to add a butterfly, lol! Geez don't those ladybug eyes just stare at you...Believe me folks, I thought about not sharing but I stayed up too late to get it done so you get the pleasure of enjoying it :)
I should tell you that the fabulous image is from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. It's called FAB FRIENDS and I want to personally thank Susana for supplying the DT with the images...so cute and fun to play with! Gotta try making another card when I'm not half asleep!
For playing along with our challenge this week you have the opportunity to win the entire collection of these cuties!! Hop on over to the Flutter By Wednesday blog to check out all the details!! Thank you to everyone who participated in Danni's birthday bash...Were YOU the one who won (don't forget to check!)?
Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you find SOMETHING that you enjoyed with this post. I should mention that I used Card Patterns Sketch #80 for my layout.

That doesn't even include the other DT work I have to do for the week...how do you do it? There just isn't enough time in the day!

I know that Danni loves Tiddly Inks, Pink, Flowers and Sparkle so I included ALL of those on my card...isn't she adorable?!?
I even used a MERCY Sketch (#89) for inspiration - another Danni favorite!! I really like how the card turned out and I think Danni will love it too...well at least I hope she does!!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed the blog hop and all the beautiful birthday cards made especially for Danni. Be sure to stop by her blog and wish her a happy birthday :)

I bought some large wooden clothespins at Michael's that I wanted to alter. I'm always looking for ways to stay organized so what better way at Preschool than with my own "clip".
