I am Awesomely Amethyst 1-10

Www.scrapbooksteals.stealnetwork.com has a series of 10 sketches, if you complete all 10 you are entered for a draw of great prizes. Due to surgery and life I haven’t been actively participating til this round of sketches! Sketch 9 has a unique story because there are no pictures, due to the fact that I never met my daughter that I had made this page for, and instead wrote her a letter! It was very therapeutic for me! I am sorry that WordPress jumbled the pictures so they are not in order but I assure you all 10 are there! I am very proud of all the pages, and look forward to many more series with www.scrapbooksteals.com in the future!

Enjoy

3 for 1

http://audsentimentschallengeblog.blogspot.com challenges us with a 2 word sentiment this week!

http://www.charismacardz.blogspot.com has a birthday challenge!!!!

http://colourcreatechallenge.blogspot.com has a challenge of RED WHITE AND PINK

OK so I decided to combine the cards!!!! Yep..3 for 1 baby!!! I took colourcreates colour combination, and worked with that. I stamped my adorable lil girl and her bear…coloured her with copics R29,27,and 24 for her shirt..then Y19,17 and 15 for her hair. Mr Bear was coloured using stardust stickles hehehe for some bling factor. I used my tiny tags from Stampin Up for my sentiment “4 you” – 2 words completing the Audsentiment challenge, and finally it is a birthday card for my  niece so thats what kinda card it is 😉 I used a new background stamp that I had never inked  (will come back with what make, I cant find the packaging, but its one of those clings ones!), and inked it up with whisper white craft ink. I also used ribbon from my stash and some flowers! Enjoy

here is my card, follopwed by challenge details.

For my card I started with a burgandy DCWV base I made from cardstock, I then cut a wreath using my Joys of The Season Cricut cartridge at 5 inches. I then hand cut out this weeks image, and adhered it to my wreath. I added skittles in red for the holly berries (I have an abundance of skittles from when they were ALL the rage! so any excuse to use them is ok by me!!) and coloured my bow using copics, as well as the leaves in the image. I finished with a stickled Santa hat, and a simple sentimnt JOY AND PEACE stamped in Stampin Up’s whisper white!!

It’s challenge time again!!

Hey blogger friends,

its challenge time over at AiFactory again. This week we were to use die cuts/punches in our creations using this adorable birds on vines image! I love this image and immediately wanted to shake things up a bit! I first coloured my image, and wasnt happy with that…so I added some primas to the flowers in the image, then I glimmer misted EVERYTHING! I then added some punched flowers from my 5 petal punch from stampin up! I added some bling and some stickles and this is my creation! I hope you love it as much as I do, and you will get out your punches or die cuts cos we would love to see what you create!!

Tickled Pink!

This challenge was soooooooo fun! We got to play with these ADORABLE owls..they are already coloured in a funky way, so all you have to do is print and use! How fun and easy is that!! I recently recieved a set of sentiments from a friend, that she never wanted, so I used the “Tickled Pink” sentiment as my inspiration. I used the hot pink owl, DCWV Sweet stack paper, some pretty in pink ink from stampin up, and a little bit of ribbon! And viola! Here is my card!

 Wanna play??? Join us!!!  here are the details :
